Record Review

You can set the D70 to display a review of the image immediately after you take the shot. The camera has several different play modes and record review uses the last mode selected, for example if you were in thumbnail play mode record review will appear in this mode.


Pressing the play button displays the last image shot (or the last image in the CF Card). Press the 4-way controller left or right to view up to five 'pages' of image information (including exposure details, histogram etc.). Press the 4-way controller up or down to browse through images, this very fast but again would have been nice if the main or sub command dials could be set to also perform this function.

1: Folder, File name, Image size, Image quality 2: Detail - Camera, Date, Tim, Metering, Shutter speed, Aperture, Exposure Mode, Exp. compen, Flash exp. compen., Focal length, Flash mode
3: Detail - Image development, ISO sensitivity, White Balance, White Balance Fine Tune, Image size, Image quality, Sharpness, Tone, Color Mode, Hue, Saturation 4: Highlights (note the blinking areas aren't necessarily completely overexposed but are 'near')
5: Histogram overlay  

Protect / Delete

Press the delete button to display the 'Delete?' prompt, press once more to delete the image Press the protect button to protect (small key icon appears) or unprotect an image

Playback Magnification

Press ENTER to switch to magnification mode, the level of magnification used depends on the last level used. Hold down the thumbnail button to display a small 'overview' image in the bottom right corner of the frame, with this you can resize and reposition the loupe (using the main command dial and 4-way controller), once you release the thumbnail button the newly selected area is displayed.

Press ENTER to switch to magnify mode, the last magnification level selected is used Hold the thumbnail button to display the overview image and magnifying loupe
Turn the main command dial to change magnification (and hence the size of the loupe) and the 4-way controller to reposition Release the thumbnail button to display the newly selected area

Playback thumbnail views

The D70 has two levels of thumbnail view, either 2 x 2 or 3 x 3. Press the thumbnail button to enter thumbnail view mode with 4 images (2 x 2), press again to switch to the 9 image (3 x 3) view and press again to return to single image view mode.

Press thumbnail button once Press again (one more press returns to single image view)

If you dont want to participate in Megapixel race created by Camera Makers & need a camera for photography not for "Bells & whistles" which you are not going to use anyway then this is the camera for you.Nowadays we are paying for features which stay unused & has no direct impact on improving our skills to create a great shot because great shot come from great imaginations & experience not cameras.


Had this DSLR since 2004 and I still can't get enough of it. It feels so much more solid than any reasonably priced offerings of modern day. And the kit lens...what a fantastic kit lens! Reaches longer and has a faster aperture than any kit lens of today. A true workhorse combination.


I have one - I wouldn't say it feels more solid. It's about as composite (plastic)-ish as any other well built Nikon (or other brand). My ex-GF dropped her sister's D70 years ago; it cracked down the middle and stopped working, so they're not exactly bulletproof. :)

I think thant as of January 2005 it's one of the most popular cameras of all time and usually in short supply. Since stores can sell as many of them as Nikon can ship no one has any reason to have to discount. I've never seen a discount from anyone, and all the discounts I've seen are from scam operations who never really have any to ship. I just got on a waiting list and my camera appeared. Be very wary of fraud over the internet. Adorama and B&H and Amazon are fine, but be careful of the thousands of others offering these.

You should make a topic in the forums, but if the camera is functioning correctly, then the memory card is simply full, and you need to make space by moving the pictures to computer.
