#67743 D700 File issues

Posted by chingwe on 08 May 2020 - 09:44 AM

Hi James, had something similar happen to me on my D700.  It was odd since the image would show on the screen after the shot but would not be on the card.  I noticed the last time it happened that the CF light stayed on after the shot, and as long as it was on the card would not record any shots.  I assume the buffer got "stuck" and wasn't able to write the file or clear.  Didn't think to check the card and try a recovery to see what was on it. 


I made it a habit to format the card at the beginning of the shoot, and haven't had this show up again...which may be only coincidence.

Greeting!  Have to confess to snooping on the forums for years before joining.  I shot film on several Nikon bodies (EM, FE, FE2, F4) and medium format on Bronica ETRS before moving to digital on the D40, D300, D700, and D750.  Enjoy using my old lenses on the digital bodies, as well as the newer glass that can really push the limits of low-light photography.


Thanks for all the help over the years, answering questions I had regarding different products and problems.  Hopefully I can give something back!
