NIKON D70 -- The smart money says this Digital SLR is going to be a true buzz-killer for the competition! Now you can catch all the action in glorious detail and impeccable color fidelity, with a 6.1 million effective pixel CCD and the ability to shoot up to 3 frames per second. Stores images on CompactFlash ( CF ) Card Type I & II or Microdrive (sold separately) 1.8 TFT Color LCD w/ brightness adjustment Standard ISO hot-shoe contact USB interface Unit Weight about 21 ounces w/out battery or memory card In the box - Strap, body cap, eyepiece cap, LCD monitor cover, video cable, USB cable, EN-EL3 Li-ion battery, MH-18 charger, CR2 battery holder, software on CD-ROM Lens not included - accepts most Nikon Lenses except IX Nikkor models

Delivering top-notch performance and high resolution at an affordable price, the Nikon D70 digital SLR offers easy-to-use yet powerful features to a wide range of users--from novices to serious and experienced photo enthusiasts. Its DX format 6.1-effective megapixel CCD sensor is optimized to deliver images with excellent sharpness and clarity, and it's compatible with Nikon's DX Nikkor lenses.

Optics and Resolution
The D70 incorporates a next-generation 6.1-effective megapixel DX format CCD image sensor that produces 3008 x 2000-pixel images, and is optimized to deliver a wide dynamic range and superbly sharp details. It also has 2240 x 1488 and 1504 x 1000 resolution modes.

Nikon programmed the D70's advanced system LSI processor for improved performance to produce vivid colors and clarity, optimized auto white balance, auto tone and color control, and to run real-time processes that diminish digital noise in long exposure shots for cleaner overall results.

More Features
The Nikon D70 has been designed to offer faster operation at nearly every level of performance, with the camera ready to shoot the instant it's turned on. Compressed NEF (RAW) files are processed and stored exponentially faster, making shooting in compressed NEF mode easier and more convenient than ever. It can shoot a rapid 3 frames per second for a continuous burst of 144 pictures (using the JPEG Normal/Large setting and a 256 MB CompactFlash card) due to improved buffer memory handling, faster image processing, increased memory card access speed, and greater system bus bandwidth.

Other features include:

  • Built-in Speedlight flash with auto pop-up
  • 1/8000 second shutter speed and a synch speed of 1/500 second for flash
  • Auto modes include Portrait, Landscape, Close-Up, Sports, Night Portrait, and Night Landscape
  • 25 Custom Settings allow you to personalize the operation of your D70 to match your shooting style or the demands of different shooting conditions
  • Shoot in any lighting environment with the D70's built-in creative lighting system and 3D Color Matrix meter with 1,005-pixel RGB Sensor
  • The D70 displays menus with simple or detailed information on a 1.8-inch LCD viewing screen
  • Choose from a variety of file formats, including Nikon's RAW mode (NEF), TIFF, JPEG formats or Nikon's exclusive compressed JPEG + NEF combination
  • ISO standard hot-shoe with safety lock
  • Optical viewfinder features high magnification, diopter correction, complete info display, and On-Demand grid lines to aid in composition
  • High-speed, high precision 5-area AF system with predictive focus tracking and Lock-on ensures quick response and sharp focus
Storage and Transfer
Images and video are stored on CompactFlash memory cards (Type I/II), and the camera is compatible with MicroDrives (no memory card is included with this package). Files can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means it can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Power and Size
The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-Ion battery pack (EN-EL3, included) or three CR2 lithium batteries (with supplied MS-D70 battery holder). It measures 5.5 x 4.4 x 3.1 inches and weighs 21 ounces (camera body only without batteries).
