Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

D100 showing double images

On the D100, with the camera in single mode, all the pictures are showing double. The camera sounds like it is only taking one shot but there are 2 images showing up when you review. And the counter is showing that 2 images have been stored. Camera has been turned off several times and the program knob checked to make sure it is on single. 
thanks, David

I had the same issue and was directed to page 87 of owners manual. Chances are good that you have white balance bracketing on. This produces two images and can be turned off with the bracket(BKT) button and or CSM menu F11 WB Bracketing.

After I take a picture it takes a very long time for the image to appear. It does not matter what lens I am using. My battery is over two years.


If your memory card is full of pictures or it's a slow card, it will take the camera longer to write to it and display the picture.

WHEN CAMERA IS TURNED ON THE SCREEN WILL SHOW PAST PICTURES FINE BUT WHEN THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS MOVED TO EITHER TAKE A NEW PICTURE OR TO THE MOVIE MODE THE DISPLAY SCREEN IS BLACK WITH LIKE PURPLISH LINES...


From your description, it sounds to me like the image sensor within the camera went bad.
This can happen from a few things:
  • Camera dropped
  • Moisture
  • Rattling around in a bag or suitcase
  • Knocking into things while in the pocket
  • Leaving it powered on in the pocket
  • Prolonged exposure to bright lights
Try taking a picture while the camera is in picture mode even if you can't see what it is of, then either review the pictures to see if what you just took shows up without issues or transfer it to your computer.
If you can see a picture afterwards when reviewing your images, then it sounds like the firmware may have gotten corrupted. In this case, you should update the cameras firmware using this LINK.
If you cannot see the image you just took, or it has those same purple lines, then it is a hardware problem and can only be fixed by replacing the camera or by sending it in for repair.
Even if you cannot see the image you just took, I would suggest going ahead with the firmware update to see if it works.

My new Nikon D700 is loading double images...two images of the same on the memory card...it takes up twice the space and i have to selct every other picture when uploading them into my Mac.


Sounds like you have it set on Bracketing. Go into your menu setting and turn off Bracketing.

Or you might be on NEF and JPG mode, taking a NEF and a JPG with each shot. Review the read-out on the top of the camera to see if it shows that. It it does go to QUAL on top of camera and change the setting to show one image, either NEF (RAW) or JPG.

One of those should fix ya.

Nikon D100 Manual shooting help


The mode dial (topside left) must be set to M. That's it for manual settings - the camera won't check anything, and certainly shouldn't require the flash. You need to choose your own shutter speed and aperture settings to get a good photo, but the camera will let you take a picture no matter how you have it set.

D100 shows small spot on pictures


Sounds like a spec of dust on your low-pass filter in front of the CCD in the camera. You could bring it to a shop for cleaning (probably about $30) or buy Nikon's EH-5 AC adapter that will allow you to lock up the mirror and expose the filter behind it and blow it off with some canned air. Should be regular maintenance if you use the camera regularly. Good reason to limit the amount of time the lens is off the camera body.

D100 overall yellowish colors poor image quality


White balance has a lot to do with image results. You need to set it for your subject shooting conditions

THE D100 REFUSED TO SHOOT THE PAINTING IN THE INSERTED IMAGE. CAMERA IN ALL OTHER RESPECTS WORKING FINE. TRIED ALL MODES.


When you say you tried full manual, I just wanted to check that you also switched to manual focus? The D100 has a switch on the right side of the lens, says M, S, C, for manual, single, or continuous focus? You need that in M with a painting like that, or to should truly diffuse subjects like clouds or fog.

The reason it works fine with only part of the painting in frame is that the camera can then identify and focus on the edge of the painting. It could also focus on any painting with linear or sharp detail. Autofocus is rather clever, but not clever enough!

If you had indeed set manual focus, then I admit I'm stumped. Full manual mode with manual focus never refuses to trigger the shutter on my D70; although it does often take pictures I don't understand at first. :) Good luck -- let us know what you find out, please!
