D70 Takes New York Fashion Week!
Sep 19, 2005

there were a surprising number of D70's scattered around the media riser at this last new york fashion week, hidden amongst the D2X's and 1Ds mark II's. this camera can really hold its own in a pro environment, although it's no substitute for seniority when a newbie like myself tries to jockey for a good shooting position in the pit!

i shot a large number of runway shows at sao paulo fashion week and applied what i learned to new york. my settings and equipment were as follows:

  • D70 with 80-200 f/2.8 ED AF-D telephoto zoom lens

  • for almost all shots: f/2.8, 1/320, ISO AUTO w/base ISO set to 200

  • auto-focus in continuous (AF-C)

  • WB: tungsten preset

the ISO AUTO feature is one of the best things about the camera. i even had a guy with a 1ds-mkII get jealous over it!

some examples:
