    Well.. Third times the charm?

    Have you tried moving your finger? Or have you checked that your case doesn't cover the lense?

    Everyone gets it..

    Mine does this too. I hope my D2 I have doesn't have this issue.

    This thing is suppose to take pictures in low light, but how can you take a picture of something you can't see?

    I heard the D2 has Night Vision so it shouldn't be a problem
