I saw a post earlier today from Oldpear. He noted that it is
possible to use a Nikon Speedlight with the D70 at speeds faster
than 1/500 sec. by blocking the back 2 flash contacts and running
the flash in manual.

Well I tried it and it works! I covered the 2 back contacts with a
piece of tape and then connected my SB-800. I set the D70 and the
SB-800 to Manual.

After a little fine tuning I was able to shoot the following images:

Shutter 1/3200 F8, SB-800 1/128 ouput level.
