Re: Can't place camera image file into another document

Nikon digital cameras record images in the "EXIF" (Exchangeable Image File Format) file type. Even though the file name (when shooting compressed files) ends in ".jpg" it is not a regular JPEG image. This format includes not only the JPEG picture data but also the shooting information (f/stop, shutter speed, lens, etc.) and other text-based data. Writing this type of information is part of the global "DCF" standard for images from digital cameras. Some applications do not properly read this data and will display various errors and warning when opening these files. The only way to use an image in one of these programs is to open it in an image-editing program and save the file to a new file name. This changes the file from an EXIF image and saves it into whatever format is chosen, stripping out all of the extra data. Contact the developer of the program which does not properly open EXIF files for possible updates.

What nikon cameras have date stamp


Every Nikon camera records the date and time (and a lot more) in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Setting dpi on my nikon d3100


DPI (dots per inch) is an output specification and is irrelevant to the camera. The camera puts a value into the field simply because it has to put something there. The DPI is set by the printing program when it prints a picture. A picture printed at 4x6 will obviously have more dots per inch than the same picture printed at 8x10.

NIKON D7000 DATE IMPRINT


D7000 will not deface your photographs by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with each image in the file's EXIF metadata.
If you want to print this information, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your photos. Depending on the program and printer, you may print this information on the image, in the margins, or on the back. For example, if you're creating a DPOF on the D7000 itself, the instructions are in the "Creating a DPOF Print Order: Print Set" section of the camera manual (page 189 in my copy).

Card reader won't recongnize card. I've installed numerous cards and still get "no card present" in the window and an E in display on top of the camera. I also got a CHR in the display once.....Thanks


Camera repair or selling for parts as is on a site such as Ebay is suggested for this one.
To repair the card reader, you would need to completely dismantle the camera. That is a job for a digital camera repair man, or Nikon to do.

Nikon does have a repair program, they may have a trade-off program as well. You would have to call them.
Here is a link.

Nikon D70 data imprint


Sorry for the long answer, but this is complicated.

Some photo editors will allow you to set them up to display the date on the photo.

HOWEVER on all digital cameras:

The date taken is part of the image data that is stored in the file, but not as part of the image. If you print directly from the D70, you can set the date and data to print in one of the menus, but this only applies if you print from the camera. There is no way to actually put the date on the image like there used to be in some film cameras. Since the "picture" is now just a set of computer data bits stored on a card, disk, or other medium, the actual picture is defined by the jpeg standard, which is part of the ANSI/ISO/IEC organization. A camera manufacturer could add an extra bit of hardware to generate some kind of laser mark on the digital sensor in the camera, but I'm not aware of any camera that has this. For sure, the D70 does not.

In the various softwares that you can buy to read the file, the information in the file (like the date) can be interpreted and printed any way the software is programmed, including putting it somewhere on the printed output.

Run a search on your computer for the file extension. Perhaps you can search *.jpg and note location of missing files.
