I got this guy 10 years ago.  It was my first DSLR and it was great!  At the time it beat the socks off the corresponding Canon Rebel and it got me started taking serious photos.  Nothing but good memories.

This spring, I got my D70, a pretty used one (it had some 56000 actuations when I got it from its initial owner, who had been shootings weddings with it starting 2005). Since then, I shot some 8000 pics myself - of which most, some 700 on a single day. The camera still runs great -and I really enjoy the excellent manual controls (two wheels for setting the exposure parameters) and the upper screen - they prove very helpful when shooting in full manual mode: you may tweak exposure really fast, ...

For me, the D70 had a very steep learning curve, even though I'd been shooting film SLRs since I was a teenager. You've read all about the great ergonomics and so on elsewhere, so I will concentrate on how I got the very best images I could out of this excellent camera. When I first did some comparison testing against a 5MP Canon A95 I was really disappointed with the sharpness and resolution of the D70. Then I started shooting RAW and converting in Cature 4.4 (latterly NX) and never looked ...

Sold most of my canon/pentax/olympus cameras since moving to digital and keeping just Sony/Minolta equipment and a few Nikon pieces. So to keep the Nikon F4s company I got a D70s. Excellent image quality for a camera of this vintage and fits the hands well, but the controls are not as easy as the Sony or Minolta 7D (or even the F4). Overall though a very nice camera for my little Nikon collection (should keep my Nikon friends happy).

The camera handles well. It is great in the hand, easy to carry, ready when you need it. Problems: Two problems so far. First, the memory started to loose pixels. I had to send it back to Nikon to get replaced. Then, worked beautifully for a while. On one photoshoot outing, camera stopped working. Somehow, I notice that the battery was flashing, getting empty. Well, I turned the machine off, proceeded to change the battery for a new, fresh one. As soon as I put the battery, I noticed ...

this was my second dslr after a too slow canon eos 300d , in the beginning (first weeks) i found it terrible way too much functions but now over 3800 images later i still think it is one of the best nikon ever build. it is heavy feels solid , looks like a pro model it deos the trick, weorks still great looks like new.. a very happy d70 user (with d70s firmware on it) Problems: none

I used this camera to move into digital from film; I was the third owner of a D70 in Vancouver...... I love it as much today as did when I first purchased it. I am lucky enough to own a D700 now, but I will always have a love affair with the first digi I owned. Thank you Nikon! Problems: Quality at anything above 200 ISO RAW files difficult to deal with at first Lens limitations, as well as smaller DX format

Its hard to make a user review of this camera since so many superior cams have past by in this time? Including my new D90. But what a great cam it was, i bought it in April 2005 bundled with the kit lens and i'm still using the kit lens today on my newly acquired D90. Reciting from memory my first impressions where that the lcd screen was a touch small and the same size as my 2003 p&s (1.8") which was a bit of a bummer. But apart from that, the ergonomics where superb and the image quality ...

I bought mine new when it came out and still use it quite a bit. I've been using mine mounted with a 28mm lens on Mountain Biking trips. It's light enough to fit in my pack. When people see my photo's they ask me what brand point and shoot I'm using
