Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?

I have my old lenes for my nikon f3 camera. can i use this lenes in any dslr cameras?


Answers :

Yes. Almost every Nikon lens will fit on the current DSLRs. Most lenses of that vintage won't autofocus, of course. Also, they probably will not meter on Nikon cameras with an even number of digits after the D, like the D80 or D5000, and will require you to shoot in manual mode.

Also, most Nikon DSLRs have a sensor that is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This means that only the central portion of the image area is used, in effect making each lens seem longer. A 200mm lens on a DSLR will give you about the same image that a 300mm lens would give you on a 35mm camera, for example. This lens multiplier does not apply to the D3 family and the D700.

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry


No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?

Have Nikon Coolpix 885 dig. camera, bought in 2000, still works OK. I had been transferring the photos to my old computer using "Nikon View" 5 version 5.0.0 software that came with the camera and my Windows XP operating system with no problems. I now have a new computer using Windows 7. This is my question: Will it be OK to install the original "Nikon View" 5 disk with Windows 7 or is there a newer "Nikon View" software to work with Windows 7 and my old Coolpix 885?


Nikon View has been superceded by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX (the transfer and cataloging/viewing\302\240functions have been separated). You can download\302\240the\302\240current versions of all (free) Nikon\302\240software fromhttp://su ... Nikon Digital Cameras

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same. My relatives have Nikon D200, D70s etc and they do not have these issues and the battery if left in camera last for more than 6 or many more weeks. How long should a fully charged battery last in the Camera ? ( I leave my camera off after use )


Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

I have an old interchangable lense from a Nikon camera that I used to use with film. My question is does the lense Sigma DL zoom 75-300 mm 1:4-5.6, fit or work on any of the digital camera today?


Yes. It will fit and work on every current Nikon digital camera. It will act longer, like a 125-450mm on the smaller sensor bodies (everything except the D700 and the D3 series). It will act like a 75-300mm on the D700 and the D3. It also won't autof ... Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon CoolPix 4300 that is about 5 years old. I mostly use it in the Macro mode for close-up photos of the sewing thimbles I sell on eBay.

It will come back on by itself, after a while, but I have to totally reset it to take only a few pictures, then it shuts off again. I have set the auto shut off to 30 minutes, but that didn't help.

Nikon D100 Hi. Out of the clear blue my af lens doesn't work. No motor sound. Can use manually. Is there a motor in the lens that needs replacing? I think its only 4 years old (inhered camera). Nikon AF 70-300mm. I don't really have the money to go to camera store without indications of what I need. How costly is the motor? Also there is no light on the internal view box. Can you help? Thanks, Mary Louisville, KY


If the lens is AF (not AF-S) there is no motor in the lens. A motor in the camera turns a screw in the lens mount to focus it. If it is easy to turn it manually, my first recommendation would be to check that you didn't accidentally bump the focus ... Nikon D100 Digital Camera

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that?

Black photos When I turn on my camera (Nikon Coolpix S5, I believe), I can access old photos and see the symbols that are usually on the screen when it used to take photos. However, if I take a photo with it, it is just black. The camera flashes and acts like it has taken a photo. There is no lens cap, so that is not the problem. Is the camera simply broken?


This is unfortunately one ccd fault...you must change the ccd of the camera. it s possible to find the entire lens block in international seller for many types of camera...search if you can find your lens to a good price and prove to change it alone ... Digital Cameras
