Short Report: Nikon D70
Fast and affordable, this camera is a tremendous value for any photographer
A 6.1-megapixel, interchangeable-lens digital SLR, the Nikon D70 offers an incredible collection of capabilities for less than $1,000. Although it's a full-featured SLR, the D70 utilizes simplicity of design to make it easy to learn and use—even for photographers new to digital. The D70 is an excellent value with a wealth of features.
Available in a kit with a dedicated 18-70mm lens, the D70 can be used with the full line of traditional Nikon F-mount lenses. Almost all functions of the type G and D autofocus Nikkor lenses, as well as all DX Nikkor lenses, are supported. With other lenses, some functions, such as autofocus and communication between the camera and lens, aren't enabled.
The camera features Dynamic Buffer technology, allowing you to take up to 144 JPEG pictures at up to three frames per second with an appropriate memory card. You never have to stop shooting to allow the camera to catch up.
The exclusive Digital Vari-Program modes enable you to get top-quality images without needing to delve through complex camera controls. The sophisticated modes go beyond simply setting the exposure by also maximizing color saturation, hue, white balance and sharpness. The modes are Auto, Landscape, Close-Up, Sports, Portrait, Night Portrait and Night Landscape.
