Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?

Over-exposure with AF Nikkor 70-300 telephoto

\015 Nikon D70 bought 2005, AF-S Nikkor 18-70mm and ditto 70-300 telephoto. Usually used on A (not Auto) setting. When change to telephoto sometimes but not always over-exposure / washed out pictures. Have noticed this for daylight / outdoor but not for indoor / available light but this may not be a true pattern. Nothing obvious in the instructions about any special buttons to push when changing lenses. No such problems with 18-70mm lens.\015

Answers :

If you are shooting objects outside with a telephoto lens, the background can influence the exposure settings if it is center weighted with a large area. The D70 sets this in the setup menu, under item 11 (Center wtd). Check to see if it is set to one of the lower settings. When you shoot general area shots or use it indoors, the exposure weighting won't be such a factor.

\015\012This problem would show up mostly when you shot high contrast shots for instance, if you shot a person outside with a bright sky in the background. Changing the exposure weighting to a small center weighted area will cause the camera to set exposure based on the person rather than the background. This will make the sky more overexposed, though.

\015\012You may have to experiment a little with the setting to get it to expose the way you want. Try both higher and lower settings before you decide what you really like.

\015\012This, by the way, is the last major area where digital cameras can't do what film does. The range of light that digital can shoot is much more limited than film. Normally, in shots where there isn't such a large range of light objects to dark objects, digital is great. For that small percentage of shots where there is a large contrast difference (think about a sunset), digital isn't able to duplicate what film does.
Friends have you tried not using the A-Aperture mode?? Set in on P-for Program or M-for Manual, this should produce the colors you are hoping for. If your photo is still "hot" use the + or - button called the Exposure compensation button on the top of the camera, push that little button and turn the outside main control dial where your right thumb sits 1 third stop at a time, (you have 4 to 5) The + adds light to your photo and the - will make your photos darker play with that and let me know.

I have a Nikon D200 I have been using in high school football stadiums shooting football, using a Nikkor 2.8 180 ED lens.

I'm trying to shoot HDR photos using my XSi/450D. From the menu two I've set the AEB EV step range as 0, -2 and 2. From here, though, I don't know what to do. If I go directly from the menu to shooting, I don't get any automatic shots, but rather single, individual shots based on the current exposure settings. Help. I've scanned my 45D manual, DVD tutorial, etc. and cannot find my missing step to create a series of AEB shots. Many Thanks, Robert

I have a D300 with a 4gig card. Takes 366 images at 12 megapixels. Using CH mode and taking lots of exposures of a couple of subjects plus single exposures the control panel tells me after a total of 212 exposures I have 250 exposures left. Is this normal? or is there a software problem? John Auckram


Unless I'm mistaken, does the camera take the full 12MP when shooting in CH mode? I don't think so and that would explain why you still have 250 exposures left. ... Digital Cameras
