"Camera settings"


US
          

Just recived my D7000 Monday. I set everything up the way I wanted in the menu.
Raw lossless compressed 14 bit were some of the settings that I changed.
I shot a bunch of pictures just see how well ACR would handle the new NEF's, and all was well.
Today I had my first chance to get out side in nice late afternoon sun light. I shot about 100 of what I thought were were RAW 14 bit NEF's
Fired up the PC put the SD card in the reader and down loaded everything.
But what I had were JPG's not NEF's
Went back to the D7000 menu to find that all of the changes I made changed back to what they were before.
How could this be??? This never happened with the D200.
Anyone have any ideas as to why these settings didn't stick? They were there the first time I took a handful of shots.
Maybe I hit reset settings by mistake, but I don't remember doing so.

Hello Moose,

Try again, being sure to hit the OK command indicated in the set up field. I found myself doing the changes but not saving though I thought I had and had a few goes at it.

The menu differs from my D90 and D3S and as with most issues mine have been pilot error. Video in particular, it's not the OK button, and so on.


HTH,

Rob

Rob,

Yes, I did hit the OK button, changes were made and they were active for my first round of test shots.
Some how, two days later, its like every change I made to the settings reverted back to default. I'll be keeping a close eye on these settings until I'm satisfied that they are in fact sticky, which they should be.

The change from RAW to Jpeg could also have happened if you accidently pressed the "Qual" button on the back of the camera and rotated the rear command dial.

Thanks for the reply, if the change from RAW to JPG was the only setting that changed, yeah that could be, but everything I changed reverted back to what it was before, very odd.

OK - how about this - did you make all these settings in U1 and then change to U2 thereby losing all these settings?

I think because you lost a lot of different settings, you did something like that.

There are three logical U-modes on the camera - U1, U2, and no-U-mode-whatsoever.

If you make a bunch of settings in one of these modes and switch to the other two logical U-modes everything is now different.

One other possibility - did you make all these settings in either U1 or U2 and then forget to SAVE them? On U1/U2 you have to SAVE the settings otherwise they will be lost if you switch logical U-modes.

One other tip is that you can make setting changes while in U1/U2 and without SAVING they do still hold effect even if you power the camera on or off. HOWEVER the moment you switch logical u-mode you are done (your non-saved settings are lost).

There are a lot of ways to goof up this camera until you internalize this topic - trust me I know from experience
