    Nikon D70s autofocus problems

    Inkybutton that sounds just right, a problem with my body dealing with built in AF lens motors and VR. I'm going to call Nikon, thanks Garbz, i was just pointing it out of this room at the wall in the hallway, 10 feet away. THe lights are on but it isn't very bright or contrasty. I'll have to go...

    Nikon D70s autofocus problems

    ahh didn't think about that. The Tamron might AF faster because it lets more light in right? The lowest i can go is 3.5. It's usually at about 5.6ish.

    Nikon D70s autofocus problems

    hmm mine says "Current: A 1.00 B 1.00" I'll have to check Nikon's sight.. edit: just checked. No firmware updates available for the D70s. For the d70 there is but i guess it's different.

    Nikon D70s autofocus problems

    Thanks, Maybe I'm thinking that it should be focusing a lot faster although it is focusing fine, but it still isn't right. Like you said Sw1tchFX, i think it may be the lens. I just grabbed the camera and pointed it down the hall, and it was searching. It focused to about the complete opposite...

    You can get away without using a remote. Just do the same deal, but pressing the camera shutter button instead of a remote (remote is handy so you dont shake the camera). A tripod is really needed though, unless you happen to find some type of surface that you can set the camera on where it is...

    Host them on Flickr or Photobucket for free and copy the IMG Code directly on to here. Photobucket is a little easier to post onto forums, try that.

    Oh yeah, i forgot you don't have to hold it the whole time. Did you hit the trees with a strobe somewhere in the exposure? They seem pretty lit up. Thanks

    Thats how i thought it was done. I do have a remote but it is just a button, it isn't fancy where i can set it for 20 minutes so i would have to hold the button the whole time.

    Not to turn this thread into a discussion but how do you get this kind of shot? I have seen it a lot recently. Just a tripod and a really long exposure? Edit: haha our questions are almost exactly the same :D

    Today's shots

    Thanks!! When i said "held" for a minute, i meant that i heald the shutter down for about a minute. I had the camera resting on a ledge :) I wish i was that steady! haha I think the lighting came out great as well, i atually took about 3 shots of every picture you see, with different shutter...

    Today's shots

    Thanks The second to last one is actually a "bulb" (i held it for about a minute probably) exposure of a bridge right by my house. I believe it was f/22, or maybe slightly higher. Unfortunately you can't get a centered shot because that ramp goes right through the middle. you used to be able to...

    Today's shots

    Today we had a storm, and all of a sudden the thick clouds started moving off very quickly, so i hopped on my mountain bike and rode the wet and muddy trails and got some pictures. Let me know what you think..

    Charging a charged battery

    yeah, i will only by nikon batteries when i get a chance to pick up a new spare. But is it bad to stick a fairly charged battery, back on the charger to top it off?
