"D70 - a power plant?!"



Couldn't help noticing that the D70 manual states the following on page 9:

"When the battery is totally exhausted or no battery is inserted, the display in the viewfinder will dim. This is normal"...

Ok, so it will dim, but not switch off compeletely!? Interresting

This refers to the actual image that comes through the lense. Since the Grid lines are LCD based it requires a certian level of power to keep the screen clear. Sorry i can't explain it better, but the f80 does the same thing.

Ah! So it's actually the case!

I thought it was referring to the led indicators - in which case it would have been - eh, well - interresting!

This is normal behaviour for the new bodies featuring the on-demand gridlines. The N80 film body does the exact same thing.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.
