In Topic: Nikon D70 Display not working at depth

12 August 2009 - 11:35 AM

I have a Nikon D70 in an Ikelite housing and both are a little over 4 years old. This year, when going to depths below about 100 feet, the display on the camera quits working. The camera still takes the pictures, I just have to bracket all my shots because I can't take a quick look to see if I have my exposure correct.

Obviously the pressure is working on something to stop the display from working. I can't figure out what it is though. As near as I can tell looking through my mask into the housing at depth, none of the buttons on the housing are touching the camera. I have taken the camera out several times, repositined every thing, and it is still doing it.

Anybody else with this setup ever have this problem, and if so did you solve it?



I use a D70s in a ikelite housing and had the same problem.
In my case one of the buttons was 'sticky' and, though it was very hard to see, it was touching the camera.
After taking the button apart and cleaning it, the problem was solved...

Hope this helps,

You can make it work on the mac, but I don't now how to fool vista...

I'm using lightroom on 2 macs with only 1 catalog on a network drive.
(you can't use the catalog on the same time though...)

-Make a diskimage on the networkdrive.
-Open the diskimage on the mac. (now it looks like a 'local' drive to the mac... and lightroom)
-Open lightroom and make a new catalogfile on the diskimage
-Import the photos (also copy them to the networkdrive so both mac's can use them)

Now if you want to use lightroom, first thing you have to do is activate the diskimage
and then open lightroom, otherwise lightroom won't be able to find the catalog...

This is how can use lightroom on my laptop and on my workstation.

hope this helps.

The first one looks like the Siganus Argenteus indeed!

The second one is not the parapercis sp. but by looking at these in the Red Sea reefguide, I think I found the specie
on the same page; Red Sea Sanddiver: Trichonotus Nikii

Thanks again!

It is a blenny. Not sure which species.

Looks like a Highfin Sabretooth Blenny

The first thing that comes to my mind is the shooting distance, it might be to big...

But without a example that's hard to say.
