Nikon D70s

D70
Review Date: Sep 15, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,299.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: This camera feels awesome. People are always complaining that it's plastic, but it does NOT feel plastic at all, it actually feels better in the hand then the D100 does. I love how quick the focusing is, right when you turn it on it focuses right away and ready for a shot. Not having a vertical grip is not a big deal, because the shape of this camera holds it's own. It's very well made. The quality of photos are great, I think it's a grea professional camera. You dont need to go out and buy a $4,000 camera when you can get just as good results with this one for 1/2 the money.
Cons:
If I was to pick out a couple of cons about the camera it would be that focus is very sensitive, you have to know what you are focusing on and take the shot, one slight move and your object is out of focus. White balance could use some tweaking but you can work around that.

I had the Canon 300D and I sold it.. the D70 is a much better camera performance wise. Continuous shots are great, quick focus, battery life lasts a long time, and the charger fully charges it in an hour. This camera has alot of options, you can do just about anything on it.

I get a kick out of some people saying it's not a professional camera, you could have fooled me. It's the person behind the camera who can bring the profession out in the camera.

I would recommend this camera to everyone.. Goodbye Canon 300D, Hello Nikon D70!
