Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Exposure/shutter release at times ''r03'' shows up blinking in the viewfinder and control panel where the number of exposures normally shows. It continues to blink and won't allow an exposure to be taken.

    I have the same problem. Happened in the middle of a wedding i was doing! Total nightmare. The "r07" message is still there and the shutter release is disabled. The manual mentions the buffer memory may have something to do with this but i can't get my camera to get rid of this problem. I have tried the reset button. This does not work either.

Its the memory buffer. the booklet says that the "r" means remaining. i think the blinking is just the camera saving the pics to the memory card. i think the memory buffer is full and you have to wait for it to finish saving. if you want to be able to take more continuous pics i think you can turn down the quality and it will take more. hope this helps

How do I take a 30 second time exposure for Northern Lights tripod


Fit the camera to the tripod. Set the camera to timed exposure and use either a cable release, or a remote control to open the shutter and either release the lock on the cable release or press the remote control a second time.

How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

Self-timer
Used for self-portraits, the self-timer will delay the release of the shutter for approximately ten seconds after the shutter-release button is pressed. The self-timer is set on section 1 of the recording menus (p. 44).

With the camera on a tripod, compose the picture so the subject is within the focus frames. Press the shutter-release button partway down to lock the exposure and focus (1). Press the shutter-release button all the way down to begin the countdown (2).

Because focus and exposure are determined when the shutter-release button is pressed, do not stand in front of the camera when taking a self-timer image. Always confirm the focus with the focus signals before beginning the countdown
(p. 25).

The self-timer is counted down on the monitor. During the countdown, the self-timer lamp on the front of the camera (3) will start to blink and is accompanied by an audio signal. A few seconds before the exposure, the self-timer lamp will blink rapidly. The lamp will glow steadily just before the shutter fires.

To stop the countdown, slide the zoom lever to the left or right. The self-timer drive mode is reset to single-frame advance after the exposure. The audio signal can be turned off in section 2 of the setup
menu (p. 83).

During shooting, or when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown on the exposure-count displays in the control panel and viewfinder. "r06" indicates that six images can fit in the camera's buffer, "r08" would indicate eight frames. Any other number could be displayed as well. Burst mode is used when you want to hold down the shutter button and continuously shoot. You are probably shooting in burst mode and your buffer is full, set the camera to single shot and see if that helps.

Dark exposures


This could be many things. If indoors, use higher iso setting and/or use the flash. Make sure exposure compensation is set to 0, or raise it. Use one of the automatic programs and let camera pick shutter speed and aperture. In manual mode, pay attention to exposure value in viewfinder, and avoid using higher apertures unless outdoors in bright sun (f16, f22, etc) the higher this number the less light is allowed to camera.

Wow, that's a long lens! It it a Nikon 500mm?

I use the full manual mode on my D70 sometimes, and I think the operation will be very similar. Spin the mode dial to M, first.

Now half-press the shutter and you should get metering at the bottom of the viewfinder. The meter will tell you if your current settings are over or underexposing. You can use the front control wheel to set the shutter time, and the back (thumb) control wheel to set the aperture.

If you've used S or A modes before, you'll be familiar with these controls. More aperture (smaller F numbers) lets in more light, as does (obviously) increasing the shutter exposure. If not, play around and watch what happens to your exposure meter in the viewfinder as you dial aperture and shutter duration up and down.

You're going to want a sturdy tripod or some very bright light with a lens that long!

You may have to use manual focus, too, if your lens does not have modern Nikon guts for the camera to talk to. I guess you'll cross that bridge when you come to it. Good luck!

There are several factors that can contribute to getting better focus and improved results. 1. Auto Focus / Auto Exposure lock. Press the shutter button down HALF WAY. The camera will attempt to adjust exposure to the current lighting environment for maximum benefit. Then the camera will automatically correct the focus based on objects in the center of the display. If the camera can automatically set the focus and exposure, the LED by the viewfinder will turn GREEN. If the camera can not adjust the settings automatically, the LED will turn RED. This process usually takes about two to three seconds. 2. Be sure not to cover the sensor on the front of the camera with your finger. This will disable the automatic focus and exposure controls. 3. Rely on the Rear LCD Display. When in doubt, trust the LCD. The LCD will display the subject more accurately than the viewfinder. This will help with "framing" the subject, or determining if you have enough light for proper exposure. 4. Motion can cause a "blur" effect. Either motion of the subject, or motion by the photographer. This phenomenon is just like traditional photography. Moving objects may appear to blur, and this will be even more evident in lower lighting situations as the shutter speed slows down to allow for more light. The shutter will react faster in bright light, and motion will not be as apparent.

Different shutter speed on top lcd & viewfinder display


Even moving your eye away from the viewfinder can potentially change the amount of light entering the exposure meter, so even if the camera is on a tripod, if AE lock isn't on or manual mode selected, the exposure setting may change.
