Question about Kodak DCS 14n Digital Camera

1 Answer

Kodak DCS 14n freezes, capture error, or forgets firmware version

My DCS 14n sometimes gets a capture error when taking photographs. I have tried using different compactflash cards, and tried formatting the cards in the camera, but it makes no difference. Sometimes, the camera locks up when storaing an image to a card. The only thing that works to unlock it, is removing the rechargable battery. Sometimes, when any of these things happen, it also regats the latest firmware version (5.4.1), so it must be reloaded to the camera.

    No, I never fixed the problem. Someone told me that the problem comes from using an untested memory card, but most of the cards on Kodak's approved list are no longer available for sale. I bought a Nikon D700, like you bought a D3. The only real thing it has going for it, is much better support for my collection of old Nikon manual AI and AIS lenses, which the Kodak could not handle well.

Did you ever solve the problem? I had the same problems; the Kodak is still lyng around since 2-3 years. I bought a Nikon D3 instead but I'm not satisfied about the colours and the brightness of the D3. I'm seriously thinking about either repaairing my Kodak or buyin one again...

Convert a n80 35 mm film camera to digital, can it be done ?

Yes, it can be done. Kodak did it to create the 14n and Fujifilm did it to create the S2. It probably cost them millions of dollars in R&D to do it, and the resulting cameras cost in the thousands.

If you want to do it yourself, it's not going to be easy or cheap. Unless you can make the chips yourself, you'd have to cannibalize another digital camera. Then you'd have to design the internal layout, position the parts properly, and so forth.

It would be a lot cheaper and easier to just buy a new D3200 or D5200, or a used D80 or D90.

Streaks like little roots or little tree branch on my pictures

is this not a problem with your lens rather than PC - best was to check is to take two separate BLACK (if white marks) or vice versa, pictures and see if the "tree" is on exactly the same place on all pictures
good luck.

HelloUnfortunately, the service manual for your Kodak DCS 14n is not available anywhere online. The manufacturers of this product did not make it available.
I would suggest you contact Kodak and request for the manual from them. They might give it to you or direct you to a dealer where you can get the manual.

What is the largest mb sd card the kodak dcs pro 14n will read ??

Seems the DCS PRO/n do not handel SD cards with HC capabilitys. So the largest SD cars that there is i 4GB. Problems is to find such a card.
In reallity 2GB is possible.
I recomend You to obtain a CF card instead. I use a 16GB CF and it work like a charm.

I suppose the DCS 14/n work the same way.

Which size has the card?
Is the write protection enabled?

The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.


But try an firmware upgrade.
Why download firmware version 1.07?
This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.

Color Problems

I know this contribution might be late, but try to avoid using the auto white balance. Use a tungsten mode and test each of its compensations until you get the desired result. I haven't had a similar problem on the 14n, but my D100 always places a magenta cast on white when shooting auto WB. I learned how to adapt the other WB modes to any situation.

Capture Error

This is somewhat of a long-shot, but try formatting both of your cards in your camera. I once bought a digital camera and tore my hair out with similar symptoms until I formatted the card in the camera. If the problem persists, I'd call Kodak. Good luck!!
