Hey! I just goy my new Nikon D70s. Feels pretty good in my FujiFilm used hands. Now I'm charging the battery and getting impatient... Words to admin, the D70s is not in the camera list yet. I think I'll be out late... Aha! and there's a Late Night Challenge... Can't wait to post some pics. I also got a SB-800 flash... Man, the fun I will have tonight!

Congrats! While the battery charges, I suggest reading the manual. That's what I did - I found it did a lot more than I had any idea of!

Yow! Look out for you!! Congrats. The SB-800 is awesome. Though I still haven't quite wrapped my head around it's manual, and I've read it a couple times through.

congrats. Time to change the camera under your name. :)
04/29/2005 06:28:18 PM · #5
Many congratulations! It's a great camera, and I suppose you have the newer version with the cable release option and all that? And remember, don't let the Canon people intimidate you :)

D70s? Is this that camera that was supposed to be the D50 or whatever I was hearing a few weeks ago?
04/29/2005 06:44:50 PM · #7
I don't think so. I just got a e-newsletter a couple days ago where they were advertising the new D70s, and the differences were a slightly larger screen, the capability for cable release, new and improved menuing, stuff like that.

I don't know. Maybe I'm confused again.

lol. i thought you got more than one d70 and I was going to ask why you needed more than one and if you could send me your extras.

D70s = slight improvement over D70
D70 = mid level nikon dSLR
D50 = budget nikon dSLR

2 nikon dSLRs are to be released in the next month or so.

by the way, why whould one need a cable release if you can get a remote control - cheap (I got one on ebay for $15 or so) and much more handy?

Yes welcome to the Nikon club. I used to have a D70 so I KNOW you gonna love it. Canon users will try to tell you about NOISE NOISE NOISE due to the 200-ISO But as I always tell Philip Dyer when we meet, canon needs the 100 ISO to make their pictures as clear as the Nikon at 200..(just joking guys/girls). Seriously .. You will have a great new relation with your Nikon. Good glass is always an asset, Ide rather buy Nikon ED glass second hand than buy Tamron/Sigma but thats just my opinion. I also havethe SB800 and its an awsome flash unit, my manual was in Japanese so a friend gave me a quick run down on how it all works and after 1 year even he dont know all of it yet.

Because for the remote to work properly you need to be in front of the camera or find a way to reflect the IR signal?

Keep an eye on the Nikon service sites, because in the next month or so there will be a firmware update for the D70 with improved AF etc. Anything new on the D70s that's solely software will be in that update for the D70.

Here's a quick snap (okay, and a quick editing) I took this afternoon. I love the D70s. Got the RAW thing down... Life is beautiful. I love how quick it is. With my S5100 I had to wait for eveything in manual mode since it wasn't really "manual"... But that's all behind now!

I love Nikon and RAW baby, RAW!

Gimme some time to convert another RAW file... I love RAW but it takes a long time to process. Even just to do a resize and save as JPEG. But you want colors? You'll get colors!

Congrats on your D-70...I have never been happier. Had the Nikon 990, then the 5700, and the delay in taking photos, never mind the fact that I couldn't change lenses, held me back so much. Great choice on the flash. I did a large group of folks in a church with poor lighting, and everyone is evenly lighted. it is so worth the money. I got the 18 to 35mm lens, and the 70 to 300 lens, and all kinds of filters too. Love my new camera, and you will too. Have a great time. AJFI a.k.a. Audrey

Here's another one from this afternoon. RAW adjustments in "Picture Project", resize, border and name tag in "PhotoShop". That's it!
