Excerpt: I got this guy 10 years ago. It was my first DSLR and it was great! At the time it beat the socks off the corresponding Canon Rebel and it got me started taking serious photos. Nothing but good memories.
Excerpt: For me, the D70 had a very steep learning curve, even though I'd been shooting film SLRs since I was a teenager. You've read all about the great ergonomics and so on elsewhere, so I will concentrate on how I got the very best images I could out of this excellent camera.
Excerpt: this was my second dslr after a too slow canon eos 300d , in the beginning (first weeks) i found it terrible way too much functions but now over 3800 images later i still think it is one of the best nikon ever build.
Excerpt: I used this camera to move into digital from film; I was the third owner of a D70 in Vancouver...... I love it as much today as did when I first purchased it. I am lucky enough to own a D700 now, but I will always have a love affair with the first digi I owned. Thank you Nikon!
Excerpt: Its hard to make a user review of this camera since so many superior cams have past by in this time? Including my new D90. But what a great cam it was, i bought it in April 2005 bundled with the kit lens and i'm still using the kit lens today on my newly acquired D90.
Excerpt: I bought mine new when it came out and still use it quite a bit. I've been using mine mounted with a 28mm lens on Mountain Biking trips. It's light enough to fit in my pack. When people see my photo's they ask me what brand point and shoot I'm using
Summary: What is up Nikon? How do I know what mode I am in when it is dark? Sure there is a backlite LCD panel but it doesn't tell you what mode you are in. And since the program dial just spins around you can't count back what mode you are in either. I guess I will have to carry around a pocket light.
