11 Reasons to go for D70 over 300D


Bought my D70 just two weeks ago. I have been reseaching for several weeks and comparing Cannon 300D to the D70. I went for the D70 for these reasons:

1. Better metering
2. More image paramerters
3. Fater Power On
4. Faster shutter speed
5. Faster Flash X-sync
6. Faster continues shooting (3 fps)
7. Better slow sync Flash (1st or 2nd Curtain)
8. Better LCD resolution
9. Has Text comment in EXIF
10. Black professional look body

Based on DPReview (Nikon D70)

I don't want to get into another heated debate but I was over at
300D forum and I read many "anti D70" comments that attacks many
aspects of the camera especially the "inferior" image quality claim
due to moire and noise. What really bothered me was that no one
was able to defend against those claims. Peacekeeper, Todd, and
Msport had tried but I think they were overpowered by a few
relentless Canonians.

I personally have not experienced such problems. In fact, I am
perfectly happy with D70 and I have printed out a few unbelivable

But now, I wonder if I get the best performance / $ ratio
especially now the new firmware hack is available that gives the
camera new features such as ISO 3200 and MLU.

So my question is now if you can return your D70 for a 300D + about
$400 more in your wallet, would you do it?
