Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Nikon D70, error "F..."

Hi! I bought a Nikon D70 from a friend in Jan 2008. She is a professional photographer who keeps up her cameras very well. She has recently gone to a D200 so sold me her "extra." I used the camera for a month and then sporadically I get an error "F..." where the camera will not take any photos. It is like it is frozen. I have searched the manual but see nothing about this error. Can you tell me what it is and give suggestions on what to do? Thanks!

    My D70 does the same thing. I eventually realized that by turning the auto/manual focus switch the problem would go away....for a while. I'm sending it in for repair.

    Hi, I got the same problem when i first got my d70 about a month or two ago. I have since fixed it and now am looking into learning how to use the camera in some extent of manual mode, my question is can i manually choose the aperture setting? Even in aperture priority mode my camera will not let me take pictures in a different aperture, is this normal? or do i need a higher quality lens or ...?

The most basic reason for getting the FEE message is that you're using a older series of lens that has an aperture ring on it (meaning you could manually change f-stops on the lens), regardless on most current Nikon cameras that ring needs to be set to f/22 or whatever the smallest aperture (largest number) the lens has.  Give that a try and if that doesn't do the trick it could just be dirty contacts either on the lens or inside the camera.  They can be cleaned with alcohol or contact cleaner and a q-tip.  Worst case scenario, you're lens has some internal problems.  I suspect that one of the first scenarios is most likely.
Hope this helps!

I bought a Nikon D70 on ebay for a good price. It has a 28-80 lens. I can read the menu on the monitor, but it is black when I want to take a photograph. I can use the viewfinder, and take a picture, but I...


No, you shouldn't. The D70 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, allowing you to compose your photos through the viewfinder. The ability to use a dSLR as a point-n-shoot camera, wobbling at the end of your arms, is a relatively recent development. Nikon introduced it into their lineup with the D3 and D300, released years after the D70.

My Nikon N50's LCD panel does not work. Everything else works fine; theflash, shutter everything. Help Me Please?


Possible failure of the display unit of the camera is the picture taken is sowing good image after downloading on the PC.
If so the panel must be taken out and checked for voltage on the pad, the flexible strip that connects the display also can be faulty.
You will need to have some experience to open and probe into the display unit.

My nikon d70 says that file does not contain image data


Hi,
If the memory card came from a different camera and inserted into the Nikon D70, the error message will appear. Just format the memory card with the D70 and the error should disappear.
Hope this helps.

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.

Deh778 question about Rgb histogram not turning off.


If you haven't solved the histogram issue by pressing the multi selector up or down or rotating the sub-command dial to choose photo information display then OK.  The D80 is a very reliable "prosumer" camera meaning it's more than a consumer model offering better quality and features commonly found on professional camera models, if you are a budding photographer and desire more control over the images you take and the options to take creative images working with the amount of light, the shutter speed and may other aspects the pros do then it's worth it, if those features are not important then having all the control might be a problem if that isn't what you are after.  Early digital cameras were pretty poor quality and could never compare to film cameras, even the early model D70 had some issues with battery life.  Take the time to learn about this camera and you will be very happy.  I know several professional photographers who use the D80 and find Nikon stands behind the camera.  If you have any other specific problems or issues let me know, I'd be glad to go over them.

What is NEF files?


A file in NEF format (Nikon Electronic format) is data flow from the photosensitive matrix of your camera written without any processing.

NEF contains more information than JPEG or TIFF and is often called digital negative. That's why professional photographers usually prefer NEF to other formats. Besides, many owners of photo cameras store their photo collections in NEF format. This ensures maximal quality of stored photos and lowest possible losses.

Greetings,
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. In my D70s I use Sandisk Extreme III memory and, knock on wood, have not yet had this error. You could also try cleaning out the memory card slot and check to see that all pins are aligned and not bent.
Good Luck,
