Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Clarity of Photos

With my Nikon D70S, most of the photos are not clear. In most photos, hair appears to be "blobs" of color and often shadows are pixilated. I have tried different ISO speeds and I have the same results each time. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

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.

Sccording to my D70 manual:

You might also use a small pen and press the hardware rest buttin in bottom of camera (page 200 in manual)

Are you using a lens hood? That could create the shadow.

Picture prints are not clear any more


You may need to replace the printheads. You can try to clean them with alcohol first.

Blob on photos


Sounds like you have your "blob" on the actual CCD sensor in the camera. There are special "cleaning kits" to remove dust etc. from the sensors without damaging them. I would not suggest trying a "home-brewed" system of cotton swabs, isoporpyl alcohol, and a can of compressed air, unless you were very well versed in this operation. A scratch on the sensor will ruin the camera. Have a qualified shop do it, or buy the sensor cleaner kit, if you want to be safe.

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.
