Question about Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-70mm Lens

1 Answer

D70 photos not sharp - no matter which lens I use.

D70 photos not sharp -- I've had a D70 for a few years now, and one challenge has always been to achieve crisp shots indoors and out. I have adjusted just about every thing I can think of, and perhaps improved sharpness slightly. Any ideas others than just get a new camera body style?

D70 produces lovely crisp images as long as the lens is pretty good.  This sounds like a camera body that needs a service.,,

Blurred edges


blurring occurs not depending on ISO, i think the lens is the problem. try to clean the lens glass carefully, is there some grease stick on the lens? if not it might be dislocated one of the lens structure.

Unable to get sharp pictures, poor focus with P90


Two things can make a photo non sharp. 1) Bad focus and 2) Vibration while shooting. In general when hand holding a shorter lens your exposure should be 1/60 or faster. Your 7600 may have vibration reduction so it helps with point two.

If you use a tripod you control point two. if the photos are still blurry you either have the wrong focus mode set or possibly the lens is damaged or out of alignment. I cannot tell sitting here. Control Vibration and use a Tripod when in doubt.

There is a focusing issue with your lens focusing motor or electronics controlling it. Unless it is a very expensive camera it may not be cost effective for repair.

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70


Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.page click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

Pictures come out white, overexposed


I had a similar problem, turn off the camera, remove the lens, reseat the lens and turn on the camera. In my case, one of the plastic threads that holds the lens in place was broken and I had to do this a couple times during shoots. I eventually replaced the mounting bracket and have had no problems since.

R05 problem using d70, camera will not take a photo in autofocus


It is actually an error message generated by your compact flash and means that the card is no longer readable. A lot of D70 owners have reported this error without being able to find another solution other than reinserting the card or changing the card to a different brand. You could also try cleaning out the memory card slot and check to see that all pins are aligned and not bent.
Good Luck,
Jeff

Grainey photos


Hi,
Firstly check the ISO setting isnt up high, this will introduce more noise than a lower setting.

A reset may help press and hold the +/- and AF buttons for more than 2 seconds (page 44 of the manual)

else there is a full reset button just below the USB port (page 129 of the manual)
you can download the manual from ftp://ftp.nikon-euro.com/Manuals/ppY_QFonPh/D80-En_05.pdf or
http://services.yesmembers.net/yes/content/D80_en.pdf

Unlikely but possible, depends what you mean by grainy, check the sensor hasnt a fine coating of dust, not on a nikon but I had a kind of grainy effect after photographing in a print works where they used a very fine dust, I foolishly changed lenses and was left with a fine dust coating on the sensor which gave a speckled/grainy effect...

best of luck

Check the depth of field preview with the lens on and the camera on. If the aperture does not react, it may be a problem with the lens rather than the camera. Check the camera with another lens if you have one.
