jacob_munoz11 Feb 13, 2005 12:28 AM nikon D-70 camera does this wierd thing where everytime i take a picture and try to look at it on the camera, all the white parts of the picture start to blink black. Can anyone help me???

That is the overexposure warning, it blinks showing you what parts of the picture are overexposed. I'm not sure how to turn it off of the D70, as I own a Canon, but I'm sure it's in th menu somewhere.

I think just pressing left or right on the 4 way buttons should get rid of it.

:-)But do you really want to get rid of it? I think I would want to know if I am blowing out the exposure.

not to be rude or disrespectful or anything but most of these problems are easily explained in the handbook that comes with the camera.
if you spent so much money on it you might as well take the time to learn its features. you will find out stuff that camera can do that you didn't think it could.

If that is happening every time you take a picture, then you have another problem, because every shot you're taking is overexposed! Try leaving the feature enabled until you have gotten the hang of exposure. In what mode are you shooting?
