An half solution: The "r nn" message is not an error message, it just reports the current size of the memory buffer. Look up "Memory Buffer" in the manual.

My camera will not focus and take a picture.. I am receiving a r07 on the top screen and nothing seems to be helping. Any suggestions?


"rXX" is the cameras estimate of how many shots legt on your memory card. As for other issue: Turn camera "ON" and remove battery while holding shutter button for about 30 seconds. Turn off, reinsert battery, turn "ON" then press hardware reset button on bottom of camera for about 2 seconds. Page 200 in Nikon d70 (do not know about d70s) manual.

1. Try removing the lens, fire off a few shots to confirm the mirror flips up and the shutter opens. 2. If that doesn't work, go into the menu and find "reset".

Error message on my Nikon D80


I have the same message r07 on the same camera & lens combination. It is an lens error message that the lense will not focus. You can manually focus the lens in the auto mode and the camera will allow you to take a picture. I have been told it is the MR unit and cost of repair around $135.

R07 Message When Shutter Release Is Held Down Halfway


The r07 is not an error. It's simply telling you how many more shots you could take in burst mode before the buffer fills up.

Auto focus problem


Well, if all the software is ok, maybe the button is damaged and not able to give the two modes any more. If the camera has done it´s fair share of pictures, maybe it needs some repairs... since you´re the first that I personaly have heard is in this situation.
Mechanical things get broken more easily than we want, I guess. I´d recommend a repair shop for your camera and let us know how you ended up, please.

I have a d 80 nikon and encounter following problem. when i press the shutter-release button i am getting following message error 07. I then pressed again the shutter release button. The same error...


I dont think this is actually an error but,
the "07 is just telling you that the camera is in Raw shooting mode and in that mode you can shoot 7 shots one after the other (with continuous shooting mode on) before the buffer gets full.

See page 140 of the manual and also read about RAW mode settings on your camera.

Cheange the setting from RAW and try taking a pic to see that your "error" goes away.

Error message r07 on D80


Hi,

his isn't an error message. R04 or R07 or R[any number] refers to the number of shots you can take before you're camera's internal memory buffer is full.

As you're taking pictures, you're camera is writing to your memory card. When you are taking burst photographs, all the other photos you've just taken are "waiting in line" to get written to your card. If your buffer is full, the camera will not let you take another shot until it's finished writing the photo to the card.

Your camera's ability to write to the memory card is only as fast as the memory card itself as well as the quality of the photos (RAW vs. JPEG).

Sports photographers usually shoot in JPEG because they are taking a lot of shots relatively quickly and if their camera freezes then they can lose a shot.

the R means remaining, so R03 three shots remaining/left before the buffer is full.
Switching off the NR high iso and long exposure. buying a 166x card or faster will help but you won't see it on the counter.
If you do the above and switch to jpeg only it goes up.
you won't do this but, the above and quality to basic and small gives R51.
But if you shoot raw its R06 at best.

Any further help, let me know.

Out of focus pictures


Try allowing the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.  Wait for a beep then press the rest of the way to take the picture.  This should result in much sharper images.  If this helps please rate my solution.

Auto focus


Are you sure you did not activate "Manual Focus"?
Near the shutter button, there's a "Focus" button. maybe you pressed it accidentally and now you're in "Manual Focus" mode.

If so, press it once more to get "Multipoint" mode back to life...

And read the camera manual. It's a goot place to look for this kind of answers.

Focus


Probably a silly answer but are you prefocussing by pressing the shoot button half way down and allpwing the camera time to set it's own focus. When it looks OK press the button down fully to take the shot. Can you switch off the autofocus on your camera? Maybe you've done it by mistake. There's usually answers for out of focus comments in the troubleshooting section of your manual )if you have one) if you don't do a Google and find one to download.
