I've now owned my Nikon D70 for just over a month, and have already taken over 1300 photographs with it. Overall I can hardly fault the camera. It feels very solid, professional, and has controls that are nigh-on perfectly laid out (for my average size hands, anyway). The camera body and the lens are great to handle, the body has rubber inserts where your hand contacts it so it feels secure to grip. The CompactFlash door is metal hinged and feels sturdy enough for years of use (although because I have a 4Gb Hitachi Microdrive in the camera, and upload images from it to the PC via the USB 1.2 port, the drive therefore doesn't need to be removed very often). The camera takes a Li-ion rechargeable battery which seems to last for ever (well, to be more accurate, over 400 shots - some taken with the built-in flash, and most reviewed on the LCD screen afterwards).
All main functions are generally 'one-stage' operations, involving pressing a button on the camera and rotating either the main or sub-command dials. This greatly enhances the camera's ease and speed of operation. The need to access menus is minimised, unless the photographer is setting up some custom function. But when this needs to be done, the LCD screen on the camera back is bright, clear and the menus are logical and easy to navigate. The scope for customising the camera functions is wide, and the more experienced photographer has plenty of opportunity to set things just how they like them.
The images from the camera are generally outstanding. Although I have to admit I downloaded and installed a 'custom tone curve' to the camera that alters its tendency to underexpose (which resulted in slightly darker images than I wanted). The custom curve adds around +0.5 EV to each shot, but only in the mid-tones.

My first real camara. Excellant device, certainly recommend it. Many reviews exists - shall not repeat what is said.
However what I find important to note is my dealings with the camara from Amazon UK.
I opened the box to find the manual was missing. Contacted Nikon UK to ask if I could get one. The response was that the serial number of my camara indicated it was a grey import and the manual would have been in a different language - hence its removal.
Amazon is certainly the cheapest at the moment for the D70, but hope you can use it without a manual. (however the D70 manual is in PDF format available on Nikon's website).

I looked at both the Canon 300d and the Nikon D70 on my move to a digital SLR, as the pricing on both is very tempting at the moment, with the 300d being the least expensive.
Side by side, they really are in different classes. The D70 looks and feels much more expensive than (what I thought) was a very plasticy and flimsy feeling 300d. However, all the reviews seem to say the photographic capabilities of both are very similar.
But playing with both for half an hour, the D70 came out an easy winner. And I'm not against Canon at all as my three previous digitals have all been Canon (Powershot A5, S40 (got stolen) and my (still) current S50) and I'm even thinking of trading the S50 for an Ixus 500. I rate Canon cameras way up there, and in all probability if I had a bunch of Canon lenses that were suitable, I would probably have bought the 300d.
Many reviews have praised the battery life of the D70 so I thought I'd test it out. After fully charging the battery, I took (precisely) 728 photo's all at the highest quality and over 500 of them with the flash. I was blown away. A criticism that others have made of the D70 is that there will never be a battery pack for it (the 300d offers one), but I just don't see the point. I have bought a spare battery so on a "shoot", I could easily take up to (and probably well over if I didn't use the flash) 1,500 photo's. Why would you need a battery pack? With film SLR's using motors to wind on the film, I can see the point, but not with this camera.
The inbuilt Speedlight flash is a very capable unit and works well indoors for party shots. However, I did decide to splash out and get an SB-800 Speedlight. What a great combination.

I won't harp on about the spec of this camera because you can read aboutit already on this page. In a nutshell though this is a top-notch piece ofkit! This is my first foray into the digital SLR market having used myhumble F601 for the last 10 years. Like many I have been waiting fordigital SLRs to become more affordable and I believe Nikon will crack themarket wide open with the D70. Although one would assume that the D100(using the usual model naming conventions) is a superior camera to theD70, in my opinion the D70 is not only cheaper, but it is also better. Theonly benefit that the D100 seems to have is its metal body. Even so, thebuild quality of the D70 is still very good and it feels perfectly robustin the hand. In fact, there are many features of the D70 that make it amuch better choice than its higher priced relative - particularly USB 2.0and far superior internal buffering of JPG shots when shooting incontinuous mode.
My only complaint about this camera is the field of view cropping thatoccurs. The field of view of any lens used with the D70 is 1.5 times thefocal length, so a 50mm lens has the equivalent FOV of a 75mm lens. Forwide-angle lovers this can be a problem. My 28mm lens no longer gives methat wonderful expanse that it used to which is why I opted for the18-70mm lens kit that comes with this camera (which is excellent,incidentally). This is not a fault of Nikon though as there are very fewfull frame CCD SLR cameras on the market and these are very expensiveitems.
For those 'pixelmaniacs' among you, 6.1MP is more than enough - theresolution is simply amazing. Also, the image processing in this camera(which is much more important than the pixel resolution in my opinion) isoutstanding. The winning feature for me though is the ability to shoot inRAW format i.e.
