Based on the award-winning image quality, high performance and user-friendliness of the Nikon D70, the D70s offers several refinements that will further enhance your digital SLR experience. For starters the D70s features a 6.1 effective megapixel Nikon DX format CCD that yields 3,008 x 2,000-pixel images that are suitable for making large prints, or for creative cropping to bring out detail. With a power-up time of a mere 0.2 seconds, this SLR is basically ready to shoot when you are. Pictures are processed and recorded extremely quickly, and preview images appear on the LCD monitor almost instantly.

With the D70s, high-speed action photography is truly a reality. With the ability to shoot a rapid three frames per second (fps) for a continuous burst of 144 pictures, you'll never miss any action. And with shutter speeds that range from 30 seconds to 1/8000 second, or up to a 1/500-second flash synch speed, you'll be sure to have the flexibility you need to capture the action precisely as you want it.

Best of all, the D70s employs the Nikon F lens mount for seamless compatibility with the comprehensive lineup of high-quality AF and AF-S Nikkor lenses that have long been favored by professionals around the world. Included with the D70s is the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF -- a compact standard zoom lens that covers the focal length range of 18 to 70 millimeters, which is equivalent to 27 to 105 millimeters in 35mm format.

Professional Quality with Point-and-Shoot Simplicity
While the D70s offers many features you'd only expect in a professional-level SLR, the camera also supports many features that make picture-taking a breeze for anyone. The D70s features Digital Vari-Program selections that automatically optimize white balance, sharpening, tone (contrast), color, saturation and hue settings to best match the selected scene. Instead of having to worry about all the camera settings, you can have the option of choosing from one of several "modes" -- such as Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Close Up, Sports, Night Landscape, or Night Portrait -- that will deliver the optimum image for you according to the conditions. This means you can concentrate on capturing that special moment while leaving the details to the camera. And once you've taken your shots, Nikon's PictureProject user interface makes image management, editing and sharing easy and fun. Simply connect the camera to a computer to automatically import pictures. You can also quickly e-mail or auto enhance images, run slide shows, burn CD/DVDs, and access other commonly used functions easily and intuitively. With simple drag-and-drop steps, you can organize pictures into separate collections and quickly locate any file by name, keyword, or date.

Among the many other features that make the D70s an ideal digital SLR solution are:

  • Nikon-exclusive Silent Wave Motor for high-speed auto-focusing with accuracy and super-quiet operation
  • Internal Focusing (IF) for smoother operation and great balance
  • Three Nikon ED glass elements, plus aspherical element for low distortion and minimized chromatic aberration
  • M/A mode for instant switching from auto-focus to manual Nikon D-Signal technology for enhanced flash and ambient exposure control
The camera's included EN-EL3a rechargeable lithium-ion offers up to 2,500 shots per charge, and the large, two-inch TFT LCD monitor offers several playback options, including single frame, four or nine-image thumbnail display, zoom with scroll (up to 4.7x), automatic slide show, histogram indication and highlight point display. In short, the Nikon D70s delivers the professional-level quality an SLR of this class but with many of the convenient automated features that can make photography so fun.

From the Manufacturer

Inheriting the award-winning image quality, high performance and user-friendliness of the D70, the Nikon D70s introduces refinements that further help photographers freely capture precious moments the instant they unfold.

6.1 effective megapixel Nikon DX format CCD
Optimized to deliver a wide dynamic range that produces great pictures with high resolution and sharp details, the DX Format CCD sensor's 6.1 effective megapixels yield 3,008 x 2,000-pixel images that are suitable for making large prints, or for creative cropping to bring out detail.

Near-instant power-up in 0.2 seconds
Turn the D70s on and with a power-up time of a mere 0.2 seconds, it's ready to shoot. Pictures are processed and recorded extremely quickly. Preview images appear on the LCD monitor almost instantly.

Seven digital Vari-Programs
Digital Vari-Program selections automatically optimizes white balance, sharpening, tone (contrast), color, saturation and hue settings to best match the selected scene, making creative photography as simple as rotating the mode dial. Choose from Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Close Up, Sports, Night Landscape, or Night Portrait for automated performance that makes the Nikon D70s the right choice, whether you are still learning how to make great pictures or an experienced photographer simply in a hurry to capture precious moments.

Increased battery performance with new EN-EL3a rechargeable battery
The new EN-EL3a rechargeable lithium-ion battery increases energy capacity to shoot more images while maintaining the same form factor as the EN-EL3 battery. The new Quick Charger MH-18a is smaller than the charger it replaces, and is capable of charging both the EN-EL3a and EN-EL3 batteries. When the need arises, the Nikon D70s can also be powered using CR2 batteries. (Requires the optional CR2 battery holder, MS-D70)

New large 2.0-inch TFT LCD monitor
Playback options on the new 2.0-inch LCD monitor include single frame, four or nine-image thumbnail display, zoom with scroll (up to 4.7x), automatic slide show, histogram indication and highlight point display.

Three fps continuous shooting for up to 144 consecutive shots
High-speed continuous shooting means never falling behind the pace of the action or missing the moment. The Nikon D70s can shoot a rapid 3 frames per second (fps) for a continuous burst of 144 pictures, thanks to optimized systems throughout the camera (when using "JPEG Normal - Large" setting, and a SanDisk SDCFH (Ultra II), SDCFX (Extreme/Extreme III) or Lexar Media 80X WA CompactFlash card).

3D color matrix metering
The 1,005-pixel RGB exposure/color matrix metering sensor evaluates brightness, color, contrast, selected focus area, and subject-to-camera distance information, references the results against an onboard database of 30,000 scenes from actual photography, then uses high-speed processing to deliver consistently dependable automatic exposures.

Refined five-area AF system with all-area search
Nikons advanced five-area Multi-CAM900 autofocus system continues to feature a cross-type sensor in the center, broad frame coverage, as well as the same class-leading low light detection and convenient AF-assist illuminator that aid shooting in dark situations. New for the Nikon D70s are refinements to deliver greater precision with fast, more consistent subject acquisition and improved focus tracking when using Closest Subject Priority Dynamic AF or Dynamic AF mode with predictive focus tracking and Lock-on.

iTTL and Nikon's creative lighting system
Makes taking pictures with flash as easy as turning the flash on! Easy multiple flash lighting is possible using the new Nikon creative lighting system including the SB-800 and SB-600 Speedlights.

Wider coverage from built-in speedlight to 18-millimeters
The built-in Speedlight automatically pops up and fires when natural lighting is inadequate, or to add Balanced Fill-Flash when there is strong backlighting. A new, optimized design for the Nikon D70s increases flash coverage to support lenses as wide as 18-millimeters.

Fast 1/8000-second maximum shutter speed and 1/500-second flash synch
Shutter speeds from 30 to 1/8,000-second and flash-synchronized shutter speeds of up to 1/500-second provide a photo experience with greater breadth and creative flexibility to catch more of those important picture moments.

Enhanced menu display, now easier to read
A new menu design combining a carefully selected color scheme, the right amount of contrast, and larger fonts makes the user-friendly keywords of the menu displays easier to view and quicker to recognize.

Nikkor lenses
The D70s employs the Nikon F lens mount for seamless compatibility with the comprehensive lineup of high-quality AF and AF-S Nikkor lenses long favored by professionals around the world for their superb color, high contrast and razor-sharp images, as well as for outstanding autofocus. The increasing family of DX Nikkor lenses designed for use with Nikon digital SLR cameras make the options even richer, delivering a wider variety of picture angles, higher performance, and outstanding center-to-edge-to-corner image quality.

AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF
Designed to combine top performance with outstanding value, this compact standard zoom lens covers the highly practical focal length range of 18 to 70mm, which is equivalent to 27 to 105mm in 35mm [135] format.
