A great camera and gives a lot for the money. It's a Nikon.
11 August 2014
Summary: This is my second Nikon D70. I have moved up, but pro cameras get heavy walking the streets. Looking for something lighter, I went back to the light D70. It will take most all Nikon lens and work in AF. It may be older, but still a great camera for general use and cheap enough to keep handy with a nice lens like the 28-80mm. Keep it in the car or on the kitchen table without worry of crashing $2000 or more.
Summary: I bought this with the money I got for doing my first gig (wedding) I wanted to have something to remember my first gig as a photographer. Its sweet. Its a stripped down version of the newer cameras. who the hell needs 9 fps and 32 mp anyways? I like the basics. Its not what you use, its how you use what you got.
Summary: I bought this camera a few weeks ago with the intention of using it as my backup/"uh-oh" camera, one that I could break and not really care too much about. The quality is decent, it does appear grainy depending on the light conditions outside. I did a small shoot recently when there was about half a foot of snow on the ground and a slight overcast and there was still a noticeable amount of grain (at least to me, friends can't tell).
Affordable, good picture quality, little heavy and big

Summary: Considering this is an old Nikon model and 6.1 MP it takes great pictures with nice colors; keys on camera make it easier to control some functions like white balance, ISO, image quality, focus mode, etc. The camera has several focusing modes that help to take better pictures. Around ISO 1600, the pictures gets a little bit grainy but this is common with this type of high ISO. Camera body its a little heavy and big but nothing impossible to work with.
Summary: I bought this used, not realizing it was an older model. Works fine, just took me a trip to six or seven stores before finding a replacement memory card that came with it and was faulty (at least I know where to get more). Not a problem. Needed one with more memory anyway. The camera arrived 3-4 days earlier than I anticipated, which I appreciate, in it's original box with all attachments and instructions. There isn't a scratch or knick on this expertly cared for camera.
Summary: I traded in my old Nikon F2AS a few years ago for my first digital camera the Nikon D70. I always have one in my arsenal. The problem, this is the third D70 I've purchased, my two boys also love the D70. Always a very dependible and simple camera to use. I use it now as a secondary camera and it's the one that is always with me while fishing, hunting, hiking when ever I need a quick photo. It would still be my primary camera if it had a few more megapixels.
