Early model digital SLR still makes great pictures
3 June 2013
Summary: I already owned this model camera. I wanted to get a second camera body, identical to the one I already owned. I set up each body with a different lens. This way I do not have to change lenses, change settings, etc.
Summary: great starter camera with great ISO diversity and great auto focus! I bought one for my girlfriend and wish i had gotten myself one as a back up camera! if your new to the D70 make sure to get you a compact-flash memory card!
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to the Bahamas. Even though it is nearly 10 years old, It still can compete in my eyes. Images are 6MP, and for today's standards that is very low, however, the metering, as well as image quality is still fantastic to this day. Easy to use, and with firmware 2.0 uses modern CF cards.
Summary: A very good camera, recommended for first time SLR users. Shutter is a bit flimsy, however that might be because I am accustomed to using professional grade Nikon bodies. Excellent image quality.
Summary: I have had my Nikon D70 for just over 4 years now, and yes it is my first digital camera. Yes I still shoot film. Just yesterday I shot 9+ hours with this camera on one battery! My wife's D3100, dead after 7 hours. My sister in law's Cannon Rebel, dead after 7.5 hours. I was still shooting. This camera is a work horse. Drop it, smack it, treat it like a Nikon, it can handle it. It does not have all the bells and whistles of the newer models.
