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.

How to take the lens of my nikon L25


From a look at the spec, neither the lens nor the back of the camera can be removed except by qualified technicians. Have you tried your local camera repairer ?

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

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.

D70 doesn't appear on Mac desktop


This is easily solved.
Most probably the camera's USB connection mode is set to PTP. This is useful for certain situations such as controlling the camera from the computer (you even take photos from OS X's built in Image Transfer).
Change this to "Mass Storage" in the camera settings menu and your camera will behave just like a card reader. Next time you connect it to the computer, plug it it, then turn it on and it will appear on the desktop and in the sidebar as an attached drive.
Don't forget to eject it before disconnecting just as you would an ordinary external drive.

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.
