Equipment TestDrive: Nikon D70
The debut of a new digital SLR that’s reasonably priced and highly capable
At the annual PMA show in Las Vegas this year, Nikon introduced a new interchangeable-lens digital SLR, the D70. The camera had been rumored for some months, but the trade show offered the first up-close look at the new model. Unlike many PMA introductions, the D70 was shown to the press as a final production and completely functional camera. Typically, we're shown mock-ups or we see the camera in a glass case (don't touch, please) rather than actual production models.

Use your digital camera to capture the power of motion
There's power in movement. While a sharp action image can be dramatic and beautiful, a blurry photograph that captures the energy of a moment can be equally as stunning. Blur softens the details of an image and, although normally we try to avoid this when creating a shot, it becomes an invaluable tool when interpreting movement.

Photographers know that wide-angle lenses sometimes cause distortion. Straight lines appear curved, especially if they're close to the edges of the frame. Sometimes, the effect is desirable, and other times, it's not.
