By Martin Turner HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Oct. 2004
The D70 is Nikon's first offering for the enthusiast or serious non-professional photographer. It's light, fast, and full featured. But you should carefully consider what you want to buy, as the price difference between this and the D100 is no longer great. You should also avoid buying the kit lenses that are on easy offer. Ultimately you are better off spending less on the camera and more on the lens if you want to make the most of the Nikon advantage.
Picture quality
The D70's picture quality is as good as the D100 and better than the D1X or the D2H (though it will be surpassed when the D2X is released in January 2005). As well as being 6 Mega Pixel, when shooting in RAW format you get 12 bit depth and the ability to change white balance and exposure after the event. If you are using Photoshop CS or Nikon Capture, there are many more final adjustments direct from RAW.
One of the main differences between the D100 or D70 and the D1x and D2h is speed. The D1x and D2h have rapid Firewire while the D70 and D100 have slower USB2. On the other hand, if your computer isn't a Sony or an Apple Macintosh, it's quite possible that you don't have a Firewire port anyway. The D1x and D2h also shoot quicker and take more shots before their buffers are filled up and you have to wait. On the other hand, the D70 is still pretty fast, and is actually faster than the D100 when shooting compressed RAW.
The D70 really comes into its own on features. As well as full Manual, Aperture and Shutter priority, and Programme, it has seven different pre-programmed modes including night-time portrait, night-time landscape, and full hand-holding auto. The Auto setting even pops up the flash when it thinks you don't have enough light.

By J. Page VINE VOICE on 29 April 2004
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.

I've had one of these for nearly a year, and taken nearly 9000 photos with it.
The performance of this camera is overwhelmingly good. Here are some highlights:
-great colour and image clarity.
-pretty good noise performance (though fractionally less good than some Canon bodies in some situations)
-ready to shoot as soon as you switch on, it's instant. switching off likewise.
-Pretty good frame rate at 3fps for the money. The buffer is big enough to shoot a good number of photos quickly even if you're CF card is a slow type.
-Fantastic battery life.
-intuitive controls.
-great build quality and handling. (may be plastic but honestly it feels very solid and it's quite robust)
-18-70ED DX kit lens gives great image quality for the money and covers good useful range of focal lengths. To get any better you need to spend big money on lenses.
-many photographic controls like flash compensation that some other cameras (such as EOS 300D) don't offer.
-Can do cool infrared photography with the right filter and custom WB setting.
Basically everything is right about this camera, except for the following things, but i'd buy it again with no second thoughts. I still give it 5 stars because it is such a huge improvement over other digicams in it's price range.
-viewfinder is a bit small (but not really a big problem)
-changing focus from continuous to single-servo requires menu fiddling, i'd like it to be in the M/A switch like more expensive bodies.
-Won't work with older D-TTL flashes such as SB-50DX (though some say D-TTL won't be missed!)
-DoF preview button is in a stupid place
-no ISO or WB info in the viewfinder.
