    so i have just got a d70s and right now i only have a 70-300mm F/4-5.6 right now (my sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 is coming in the mail monday) last night i was walking around and shooting some of my first shots and ive been confused by the "EV" display in the veiw finder.

    [​IMG]

    the part with the +|||||||0|||||||||- part of the display in the veiw finder

    could i get some explination on how to interpret and adjust for what it reads? i know it has to do with the amount of light that is available, how the shot will come out. i could use the flash but i find my self in alot of sitcuations where i don't want the flash.




    also could someone explain what this "r" thing is in the picture below?

    i have noticed that the camera somtimes just woln't take a picture, even if i give it a little time, i think its because it can't really focus it if i have AF on or full auto on but then agian it somtimes does it when im full manual

    The dot lets you know something under the AF point you picked is in focus

    +|||||||0|||||||||- part that is your meter.you want it to be on the 0 part if its to the left its gonna be dark and to the right its gonna be brighter or am i backwards?


    to focus u have to look at a spot that it could read..if u have a white wall it cant focus anywhere so make sure you focus on a corner or whatever first

    r is the remaining number of shots in the camera buffer before it has to stop to finish writing to the card

    :rolleyes: I've read it three times and it says nothing about EV or the r. Why don't you go take some shitty pictures and put borders on them while people give me REAL advice. :ugh:
