Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a nikon d70 digital camera with which I have shot a few thousand exposures. A number of what seem to be minor software errors have been cropping up. For instance: I can't get the camera to "beep"; I can't format the memory cards using the 2 button system - I have to go through the menu setup; I can't select certain of the image quality options using the "quality" button - I have to go thru the manu. Certain numbers come up unreadable on the control panel. The above problems do not stop me from accomplishing what I want to with the camera but I am concerned that I may be heading for a major failure. Is there any way to fix what appear to be software errors, such as by downloading and installing the in-camera software? The Nikon website doesn't appear to offer any support for such an "old" camera as this.

Hi,
Sounds like you have a hardware issue and not so much a software problem...
Try: removing battery and lens leave off for a few days.
put in a newly charged battery and different lens...
turn on and tell me whet you get.

Received an r05 notation on the number of exposure box of my Nikon D70. What does this mean? There is not annotation to such an error notice in the manual.


It's simply telling you that you can take five more pics in a burst before the buffer fills up. It's not an error, it's supposed to do that.

It's only a problem if it gets to r00 and stays there.

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


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

Over-exposure with AF Nikkor 70-300 telephoto


Friends have you tried not using the A-Aperture mode?? Set in on P-for Program or M-for Manual, this should produce the colors you are hoping for. If your photo is still "hot" use the + or - button called the Exposure compensation button on the top of the camera, push that little button and turn the outside main control dial where your right thumb sits 1 third stop at a time, (you have 4 to 5) The + adds light to your photo and the - will make your photos darker play with that and let me know.

Nikon d70 not showing shots in order as when i take them.


Camera uses time/date stamp of file to determine order, are these correct or do they show incorrect time? If not, then internal lithium battery needs replaced.

Nikon D70 not showing shots in order as when i take them.


Greetings...

There are a couple of things to look at here...

Your camera settings and your computer file settings...

For the Nikon D70 make sure the file number sequence is set to on...

SET UP MENU (wrench icon)
File Number Sequence: This lets the camera number your images starting at the last shot you made, even if you've formatted your card. I leave this to ON. If you turn this feature off you'll start from 0001.JPG each time...
Are you working on a Mac or PC?
If you are on a PC make sure that the program you are working on is set to sort by name...
If your Nikon was not set to sequence, you will need to rename the files. Nikon has a free program, ViewNX, that will allow you to view, sort and rename image files...
Additionally, on a PC, open Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View, and UN check the 'Hide extension' box...
This allows you to see the naming extension's on you files...
Have a great day....

The cards may have been corrupted in some way. Have you tried them in another camera or a card reader? If you have a reader, you might want to try formatting one of them from your computer.

R10 error code


rXX on the LCD normally indicates how many exposures the buffer can currently hold. I'm not sure why you're getting this problem but try the camera on a different quality setting to see if you still get r10 or if the message changes.

Nikon D70 Help


I don't think there is really any such thing as a 100% "natural picture". What your eyes see and what film or a sensor "see" are not the same. All photos are manipulated to some degree whether it be from the type of film or the digital "modes" you use. If you would have shot with a film such as Velvia, the greens may have been more "stellar" or maybe too green. There are a number of settings you can use to get the results more to your liking with a D70, or shoot NEF and post process to your liking. Your exposure will make a difference so you may want to bracket.
