Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?

Nikon d70 photo results

\015 Pictures taken (outside, daylight) with my D70 are dark when printed. For instance, on a snowy day the snow appears greenish-gray in the printed pictures but white and natural on the digital screen. The setting is on automatic. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

The problem is NOT white balance with snow. It is your exposure value. You can change whiote balance all day long with no results. Because the camera wants to make everything 18% gray, it underexposes the snow to look gray. You need to compensate the very bright, white snow by using +1.0 to +2.0 ev.
There are so many places where you could be going wrong...\015\0121. Exposure: Snow usually looks grey because cameras tend to under expose it, especially Nikons. Although camera metering has come on a long way since everything was assumed to average out at mid grey, you will generally need to use +ve exposure compensation for snow and -ve compensation for coal heaps to record what your eye sees.\015\012- However don't go too far or you will just get huge blocks of clipped whites.\015\0122. Trusting the LCD display: This is not as good as your computer monitor! Use the D70's histogram and Highlights views to get a more objective idea of the exposure.\015\0123. White balance: Auto white balance is easily fooled. Experiment with sun/shadow/overcast. Midday sunlight is a different colour from morning or afternoon. Set up white balance bracketing if you are not sure of the correct setting.\015\0123. Colour space: Are you shooting sRGB or Adobe RGB? What are you using to view/edit on you computer? Does it use the same colour space and is you computer monitor calibrated?\015\0124: Printing: Where are you printing? How reliable are they? Do you know the fault does not lie with your printer? \015\0125: Workflow: To get colour right you need a fully calibrated colour workflow. This is a nightmare for mere mortals. But break it into steps: Does the image on your screen look like it did in the camera? And does the printed image look like it did on screen? \015\012Good luck!

Hi My Nikon D70 only now produces black photos. On speaking to Nikon suppor they state that this requires a replacement CCD however is this a known D70 fault and thus should be fixed for free? or is there another way i can fix it myself? Kind Regards Lavan

I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera and formatted the card. When I put the card back in I shot the rest of the photos using the same card. The last 2 photos I shot said that there was no image file and that I needed to change the card. I went to download the files to the computer but its telling me that the card needs to be format


Shoot,\015\012Is this a small capacity SD card? Like a 512mb or 1GB card?, you have to be careful not to shoot til the card is full, there's a risk of loosing data or corrupting what's on it. There are recovery utilities that can be loaded on ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the pics, got an error in the viewfinder (CHR). Looked at the manual, and it said problem was with the card. I removed the card, and placed it in a card reader. It worked fine and I was able to transfer the photos. Replaced the card, and still get the same error. I've already re-formatted the card,


First, memory cards don't last forever, so it may be time for a new card. Make sure you check the pins in your camera and the contacts in your card for dust/dirt. I'd guess you already looked at this, though. \015\012\015\012I've had s ... Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera

Missing shots I have a Coolpix L18/L16 Nikon and I am missing all of my pictures. I take them but by the time the shot goes through the picture is lost. It continually results in pictures where my daughter's eyes are closed. What can I do? I am guessing that some setting is off which makes it take too long to snap the photo.


Your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera
