    This does not help. I would like step-by-step instructions on how to assign the Fn Button to Virtual Horizon, so that it is displayed in the view finder. Thanks

Hi Utpal.

Virtual Horizon and other functions like NEF, life view or exposure or flash locks cannot be set to be assigned to the Fn button. This is a choice made by Nikon to prevent assigning functions that can create problems or confusion in regular use of the camera being assigned to the Fn button.

Here an extract from manual stating the same (p322):

Here a copy of manual in PDF.

Best regards.

Hi,

VH on the D700 will only show in the viewfinder and top lcd. To display VH on the rear LCD you need to access it in the menu still.

You can assign VH to the Fn button as normal but you wont see it on the rear LCD after you press Fn.

Hope that helps.

Nikon d700 hotshoe missfire with flash nikon sb900


Probably a loose hotshoe. This is a common problem with the D700 hotshoe and SB900 combo. The weight of the SB900 eventually loosens the hotshoe, meaning the internal screws holding the hotshoe in place loosens.

How to Format a Memory Card with a Nikon D700


1) Insert the memory card you wish to format into the Nikon D700's body using the memory card slot on its' right side. Make sure the power is off before you insert the card and that you place the card in correctly. The D700 will only accept CF cards, so make sure you have this type available.
2) Turn the camera on with the power switch. Only do this after you have inserted the memory card and closed the memory card slot.
3) Press and hold both the Trash and MODE buttons down for about 2 seconds. Together, these are known as the 'Format' button. The Trash button is located on the back face of the D700 body next to the Preview button, and the MODE button is located on the top of the D700 body next to the shutter button and power switch. If done correctly, the letters 'For' should appear blinking in the shutter-speed sections of both the view finder and control panel.
4) Press and hold both the Trash and MODE buttons again to format the memory card. This will delete all photographs on your memory card and format it. Do not turn off the camera or remove the memory card while the card is being formatted. If you do not want to format the memory card, simply do not press the Trash and MODE buttons the second time and wait for the blinking 'For' to disappear, which it will do after about 6 seconds.
5) Wait until the blinking 'For' disappears. The display will now show the full amount of photographs that can now be taken on the formatted card.
6) Alternatively, you can also format your memory card from the Setup Menu in the D700 LCD menus. You can access this by pressing the MENU button on the back of the D700 body, selecting the Setup Menu and pressing Format Memory Card, OK. This will format your memory card immediately.

In custom setting, assigned the front function button to display framing grid. function button does not respond when pressed. am i missing something here? thanks


Aha! While pressing the fn button, turn the main command dial (the one on the back) to toggle the grid display.

Personally, I like having the grid, and used custom setting #D2 to turn it on the first day I had the D90. This frees the fn button for other, IMO more important things.

My Nikon D700 fires my SB900 flash uncontrollably. It drives me nuts!


This may be due to something loose or internal damage in the camera's printed circuit. Also this can be due to settings. Try to go to the menus and reset all to factory default. Later you can pick the settings you want, if it works.
