Re: Top half of my pictures are darker.....Nikon D70..
First clarifying question: Does the same thing happen with different lenses? If so, the problem is in the camera. If not, the problem is in the lens. A camera store will let you try different lenses if you only have one yourself.
Have you tried to clean the sensor? Perhaps it has become dirty?
Have you tried importing the pictures directly on a different computer? Maybe it's something in the transfer between camera and computer.
I'm not aware of any in-camera digital effects that would cause this, but I recommend doing a complete camera reset using the on-board menu. Start from factory-fresh and see if it still happens.

1. You could lower the ISO setting.
2. You could lower the "exposure compensation" setting. It's the button that's half-black/half-white with a plus and minus.
There are many other ways but you really should carefully read your instruction manual and experiment.
Hi, allow me to suggest using another lens to see if you still see the dark patches in the top corners. If not it is the lens, if so it is the camera. Either way it sounds as though something is maladjusted. Call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.
I just checked my service info and do not have a good picture of the top cover. The top is sold as a unit by Nikon. An independent repairman may be able to repair the top if there is no damage. A work around would be to use an external flash. It would not have to be a Nikon brand, but you would have to set speeds and aperture manually to get proper exposures. Replacing to top cover would be more than 100$
Today I was taking photos and the camera quit...the top display says err. The book says release shutter, but I push the shutter and it does nothing but make a little click and the err stays. I took the lens off, and the camera does look like the shutter is open or something.
According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
I don't think there is really any such thing as a 100% "natural picture". What your eyes see and what film or a sensor "see" are not the same. All photos are manipulated to some degree whether it be from the type of film or the digital "modes" you use. If you would have shot with a film such as Velvia, the greens may have been more "stellar" or maybe too green. There are a number of settings you can use to get the results more to your liking with a D70, or shoot NEF and post process to your liking. Your exposure will make a difference so you may want to bracket.
