Brickerbg,
That option isn't available for the D70 some manufactureres call it live view, sort of like looking through a video camera's viewfinder and it is what is going to to get recorded or what the picture is going to be. Some point-and-shoot cameras have that but no viewfinder. Digital camera owners have expressed a desire to have that option on DSLR's for a long time now so camera makers are adding that feature. It comes at a higer price now, but soon it will be a standard just like video for DSLR's (D-90). The reason it has been tough to add is that it is a real power drain on the battery to keep the display on and have the auto focus and metering going at the the same time which is what has to happen if it is a "live view". You can keep your display (of pictures taken on longer from the menu) but that's not really what you are after. Hope that helps.

    One more thing to consider, you really don't want to look at the LCD screen to take the photo, it's an awkward position that is not very stable for taking pictures anyway. You want to hold the camera close to your face bracing it with both hands. Holding it out in front of you to look at the LCD is risky and at slower speeds or lower light you will get blurred shots. You want to get used the the view finder to get the info that appears there as well as the focal area. It's the way the pros do it. Give it a try.

Nikon D70 with brand new Sandik ultra11 2gb flash card error CHR


Go to the Nikon site and upgrade the firmware on your D70 to version 2.0.

Before doing that, try turning the camera off, wait a min, then back on. That sometimes clears the error. The D70 is having trouble reading the card(s) you're putting in. The upgrade fixes that.

Push your playback button once the camera is on.
Then push you your thumbnail button. (this is the second button from your playback)
watch your monitor and keep hitting the thumbnail button until you get to the single picture view.

Problems reading card in camera


There are several possibilities here.
1. Bad Cable
2. The USB plug on the camera is damaged, ie broken solder connections.
3. Bad card.

If the problem turns out to be #2 your camera will probably need a new main circuit. Which is a Nikon Repair. Probably around $250 or more.

Check in the user guid for your camera about their recomended shutter speed setting for the flash.

Try using the camera and the flash in "A" (automatic) to start with.

According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$

Nikon D70 Help


I don't think there is really any such thing as a 100% "natural picture". What your eyes see and what film or a sensor "see" are not the same. All photos are manipulated to some degree whether it be from the type of film or the digital "modes" you use. If you would have shot with a film such as Velvia, the greens may have been more "stellar" or maybe too green. There are a number of settings you can use to get the results more to your liking with a D70, or shoot NEF and post process to your liking. Your exposure will make a difference so you may want to bracket.

D70 USB setting issue


Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
