Well a good photographer dosen't  use a auto to much.  Second you can solve  this problem by  buying a 36r or 50 r  flash.  Next put your camera into aperture priorty the flash will now sync up to 4000. I hope this solves your problem..  lesmobile1@yahoo.com    www.storyboardvideo.com

Why the flash of the camera are not sincronize with imagine and sometime is shooting down when I shooting.


Your camera probably has a flash shutter speed, typically around 1/200 second, and if you choose a higher speed then only part of the image will be exposed.

The built in speedlight on my D 70S is not synching. Seems like the flash goes off before the shutter opens.My pictues all comes out dark no matter what I try. Can you help me?


I fixed this same problem with my D70s today, after twelve months of getting dark pictures despite the flash firing. It started syncing properly after I performed the following, though I'm not sure why as I was just mucking around.
- Set Program to P. - Push button to activate built-in flash. - Push, and keep depressed same button, which will put you in Flash Exposure Compensation mode. - My Flash Exposure Compensation was on +0.3 so I set it to 0.0 by turning the front wheel. Seemed to fix it.

Missing shot.


Any auto camera like this is going to have trouble in dark light...
Photography is all about light, and in dark situations, compromise as well.

You best chance is to set the ISO up to the highest setting available, use flash, and a faster shutter speed, however, faster shutter speeds means less light can enter the lens, and hence give a darker image. Higher ISO makes the camera more sensitive to light, but produces grainier images as a result. Flash creates artificial light...

The only real way to get good images at a concert in the dark is with a high end camera, a lens costing many thousands of dollars, a tripod or monopod to steady yourself, and a longer open shutter time.

In the meantime however, experiment with higher ISO setting, flash and try to keep your hand steady at all times because the shutter speed needs to be slightly slower for the lens to capture more light.

You probably have "bracketing" turned on. In your menu settings, search for bracketing and make sure it is off.

Blurry pictures


It is possible you were shooting in the NIGHT & PORTRAIT Scene mode. In this mode, the camera sets a slow shutter speed for the background exposure and fires the flash for the subject exposure. Since the shutter speed is slow, your subject should be still and the camera should be on a tripod - otherwise blur can result. Since this mode should only be used when the above conditions can be met, you should select PROGRAM AUTO mode for low light situations where you are taking images within six feet of your subject and the flash is required for proper exposure.
