I have a D70 that has just developed a problem, when I go to take a photo everything appears to work, I can hear the shutter operating, flash works but no photograph??? can anyone shed any light on this, I have searched the web but not found any solution many thanks Mick
Welcome to Nikonians! Sorry to hear of your problem. How are you determining that no image was captured? Did you press the playback button on the back of the camera to review the image? Did you try downloading the memory card to your computer? Is there an error message in the cameras display? Have you tried using a different SD memory card that was formatted in the camera? Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
Starting with the simplest stuff first...you do have a memory card in the camera, right? In the menu, there is a "No CF Card?" option. Is your set to "Enable release"? If so, the camera will fire even though there is no memory card to store the image.
What exposure mode are you using? Did you inadvertantly dial in negative Exposure Compensation? Maybe -5? If not the shutter mechanism is likely broken and the camera requires service. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
It is possible but highly unlikely. Do you have another SD card that you could try? Don't forget to format the card in the camera before capturing an image. If you have a card reader you could eliminate any possible problems with the cameras USB port. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
Hmm... I take it you are getting a photo, but it is solid black. This suggests the camera is taking a picture, but without the sensor being exposed. You say you hear the shutter opening, but what you may be hearing is the mirror. If the photo comes out black, and what you see on the camera LCD is just a black picture, my guess would be that the shutter isn't opening.
If my guess is right, you'll probably need to send it in for repair (or get a new camera).
