p.1 #1 · D7000 saving issue


Hey everyone, I have a dilemma cannot find an answer for. Randomly my D7k won't save a picture, doesn't have to be continuous it can be a single shot. At first I though it might be the SD card so I had it warrantied with a brand new out of the box extreme pro class 10. I found one thread on google but person had same issue with no fix. I've cleaned out the SD slot and connector on card and already exchanged it. This just recently started doing this. I notice when in shooting the viewfinder turns red and totally stops taking pictures. I thought this might be in raw only so i jumped to jpeg but same thing. I also noticed when shooting jpeg i cant hold trigger down and get the max number of shots, after 6 or so it stops then starts then starts. When i first got the can i could take about 40 continuously in raw before it began to slow down, now maybe 4-6.Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you

That, too, was my suggestion. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1111709
Hopefully, Phillip can get this sorted.

This sounds like it could be your focus priority setting. You didn’t tell us what your settings or conditions were. Based on your description, I'll assume you were blasting away at a moving object and set to AF-C mode. Try menu setting a1: AF-C Priority Selection = Release.

Not sure about the “totally stops taking pictures part” (maybe related to above advice) but Nikon prosumer cameras do flash red in the viewfinder when focusing. This is normal. It's more noticeable in dark conditions. There is even a note about this on the troubleshooting page of the manual (page 299).

This sounds like the SD card. Use a Lexar or a SanDisk and see if it happens again.

Hey patrick, sorry for the unclarity. I'll elaborate on the settings. At first I thought the same about the focus so I def put on manual single no auto focus..and same thing. The red in viewfinder turn while viewfinder red and cam totally stops and I've shot a lot with this cam and that's the only time I've ever seen it do that. The sd card is SanDisk extream pro which I've exchanged 3 times.

Odd I've never seen it and I've shot very low light many times. The red is the entire viewfinder...whole viewfinder is bright red and cam stops shooting.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO It started again today, i havnt changed any settings at all yet. Anyone have any other info about this? I searched nikonians and nikon and couldnt find anything. I will add this though, after shooting 4 quick burst shots of dog jumping in the air the camera just froze and didnt save the photo....what i noticed was the first time i hit the shutter button to take a picture it made this aweful noise...wasnt the smooth nice shutter sound but a weird clumpy sound. This make any difference with anyone on what it may be? By the way why cant i give rep points in here?

Yeh that's long gone...purchased August 2011. Sucks because I know Nikon will take forever to fix it and I have a lot of paid shoots this month through July. Blahhhhhh dunno what to do.

are you using a 3rd party battery grip?? This happened to me once.....i would shoot shoot shoot and then it would show the last photo recorded as like 4329....then i'd shoot shoot shoot some more, and same thing 4329 was the last recorded...ALSO, i got a shutter error right before that, where the mirror flipped up, and stayed up (blinking ERR on the top LCD...had to pull the battery and fire again to get it to reset....it hasn't done it since, about 2 months....i attributed it to the battery in the grip (which was used first) was down to ZERO....i'm thinking that just before it switched over to the internal battery it didn't have quite enough juice to return the mirror....and then when it DID start shooting again it did the not recording thing....i dunno, so weird....hasn't happened again since....about 6 months before that it did the same thing, just the mirror ERR, not the lack of recording....i'll prob send it in eventually, but i've got backups....
