Nikon D70

 

Some might say that Nikon has been a little slow to hitch up their skirts and get chasing Canon, Pentax, and Sigma in the production of decent a digital SLR camera that nips in under the £1000 mark. The launch of the Canon EOS300D, in August 2003,...

Rugged build, good battery life, easy controls, flexible operating systems and menus

Cluttered LCD display, lens hood shadows the image in certain configurations

Overall the D70 is a spectacularly good digital SLR. The speed of the drive, the size of image buffer and strange decision not to make an external booster battery to fit the camera are the only signs this is not designed for the professional market,...

Nikon D70 SLR Digital Camera Camera

 

Professional photographers have been buying Nikon's digital single-lens reflex cameras for several years, but at $1000 (body only), the 6.1-megapixel D70 is the company's first SLR that's affordable for the advanced consumer. If you own a recent...

The D70's rechargeable battery was still going strong when we stopped testing after 500 shots. It also comes with a converter for use with three disposable lithium CR2 batteries--an expensive option, but handy for emergencies. You get no media card...
