Nikon D70s

D70
Review Date: Aug 31, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,300.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Great resolution. i-TTL is a sure winner and so is the wireless remote to the new SB series. Small and compact with a fairly high fps to capture sports events. Price is a big plus too.
Cons:
White balance needs tweaking. Sorta sluggish AF and sometimes incorrect focusing. No vertical grip which means only 1 battery. Noise unbearable above ISO 800

A very handy dandy dSLR for consumers wanting snapshots or more mainstream photography like sports or fashions. The resolution of the images are very high creating sharp and crisp images. Images are well contrasty and NEF allows flexibility in post processing images. However, this camera is not very suitable for those who considers photography as a career. AF is often not tack on the subjects. Don't construe that as backfocusing (something that lots of non-experienced photographers whine about the D70). Mine had no backfocusing problems at all and I'm sure all D70 also has no backfocusing problem. One negative aspect is the white balance. Cold Cold Cold images often come out of this camera. No vertical grip too. Although the battery provided can last fairly long time, an addition of the vertical grip would allow a longer photography experiment.
