    Hi
    I've found very strange behaviour of D70 you can check if it happens
    only in my D70 or does it happen in each D70.

    Yesterday I've tried to make pictures in total darkness as I
    suspected when I've pressed shutter-release button halfway AS-assist
    illuminator was light. I've pressed shutter-release button halfway
    several times (without making picture), around after 4th time
    illuminator was not light (or it was only very short flash) and camera
    could not focus. I had to wait 20-30s and illuminator worked again.
    When I've made picture each time I've pressed button halfway this
    problem was not appeared (at least I've tried several times).

    It is not a big problem but in situation when I make many pictures in
    darkness it means that I cannot make picture too often..

    Does this situation happens in yours D70?

    Well I think I found answer:

    pp 73, bottom of page,

    "Continuous Use of the AF-Assist Illuminator
    After the AF-assist illuminator has been used for several consecutive
    shots,
    it may turn off briefl y to protect the lamp. The illuminator can be
    used
    again after a short pause. Note that the illuminator may become hot
    with
    continuous use."
