Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Open Question

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.

Good results are usually possible with the trusty old D70s.

Obviously, run through your settings and ensure you have everything sorted for max quality: Set quality to Fine, size to large, ISO 200-400 (turn auto ISO to off).

Next check the JPEG processing settings. Make sure the sharpening and/smoothing are set to minimum or low. You could also try shooting on RAW which would help eliminate the JPEG processing settings as the problem. If your RAW files are still ****, your camera may be on the way out. If the RAW;'s are better, your JPEG settings need attention or the processor is having issues.

Assuming your settings are all fine and your lens is of reasonable quality the images should be pretty sharp. But at the end of the day the D70 is getting on a bit and with only 6.1mp zooming in heaps is never going to be pretty.

If the "blobs" of colour and pixelation are severe you may have a sensor or processing issue.

sopchoppy,  (Marjorie), Ouch, that's is not going to be a pleasant shopping experience.  There are camera shops and electronic stores that sell lenses, that's the easy part.  The tough part is dependent on how the lens was broken because it may make a difference on what you may be purchasing.  If the lens was dropped while off of the camera and the lens glass not the UV filter that may have been on it for sure it's a replacement lens (having a filter on the lens does protect it and will be sacrificed, but save the actual lens if dropped - so it's worth it to by one even a clear one if you are not shooting mostly outdoors).  If the lens was on the camera and fell and broke you may have to replace both items, much more to consider.  Don't worry you have a huge selection of digital compatible lenses for your Nikon even an exact one that came with the camera, the range in price may give you sticker shock though, as little as $150 up to and way beyond $1500 depending on what you intend to do with the camera.  If you don't want to deal with those expensive decisions, or the camera body was damaged along with the lens, a different camera may be your best bet.  I usually encourage using DSLR over point & shoot cameras  because the quality of images is so much better, and you can grow with the DSLR by purchasing different lenses and flash unit, but only if that is what you want to do, it's an investment in your photography skills.  If you are leaning toward a new camera I can recommend something if you like, just let me know what you like to shoot, and you budget, we can take it from there.  Take care. randy320sgi

For the best under $1000, that would be the D90.

The 18-105VR will work on the D70s.

You should have a file protection option in the camera menu, access the picture, press the menu button and look for the protection options.

Err message displays, won't take photo


The Nikon D-90 users manual says on page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter.

I've found on my D-90 that the only way I can get the shutter to release is my turning the camera off. When I turn it back on the ERR message is gone and the camera functions as it should.

Occasionally, I have had to remove and reinstall the battery to make the camera turn off but this happens only rarely.

The users manual says if the condition occurs frequently or persists that you should contact a Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they suggest. I think this information would apply to the D-80 as well.

When taking night sport shots I don't think I have the right settings for clear photos they are coming out tooo blurry. Help!!! the photos are grainy also and dark. Could you send me the correct setting...


More likely you don't have enough light for clear photos. There's not too much you can do about this, since you probably can't add more light to the stadium or arena and the action is too far away for your flash.

Since the low light is going to force a rather slow shutter speed on you, you need to stabilize the camera. Use a tripod or monopod. That won't stop the athletes from blurring, but at least the setting will be sharper. Alternatively you can try panning with the motion, freezing the athlete and blurring the background.

A faster lens will get you a couple of additional stops, but as such lenses can cost $2000 and more, unless you're taking pictures for Sports Illustrated...

Grainy Photos using Natural Light


Sounds like the 'shutter speed' as it was called is too fast.

Image is grany every time tv is cold.


I had the same problem. Except mine never got better after the tv warmed up. I fortunately I still have my manufacturers warranty and Samsung sent a guy out within a few days. He replaced a few parts which really didn't do anything. However what he did that was interesting was on two circuit boards. One on the mid left and the other on the mid right. Apparently there is a nob or something he tweaked on each panel that cleared the grainy image right up. What he told me was that the it is basically pixels that are not turning off in sync. adjusting the two circuit boards syncs the pixels to turn on and off at the same time.

The higher the ISO setting the more grain in the photo. Have you somehow set the ISO to say, 1600? http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b11&num=12 Select ISO setting this way: http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b05&num=10 Are you shooting in low-light situations (typically indoor)? Try shooting bright scenes and Auto mode, or manually set ISO to 100 or 200 and see if noise persists.
