Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
Same problem as mine. Made a sick sounding noise and flashed err then started working fine again after switching off. Happend sporatically while taking a series of shots.
Then today died completely. I take 600+ shots per day 5 days a week, so not unexpected on a 4+ year old camera...
The mirror is what is actually causing the fault and may eventually jam completly as mine has.
Unfornunately, I cannot even select "mirror lock up" in the menu as it is greyed out while the error is active.
The mirror release will need to be serviced to prevent the problem in the future. Once the problem starts it will just get more regular and worse until it ends up like mine.
On the plus side I just brought a D300 to replace it :)
