"Toys for the D70"


Sugar Land, US
          

Just curious here--what did you all buy for your D70 and in what order? This might help out our newer members decide on what to get and it's also interesting to see what others splurged on after acquiring this great camera. I already had a 67mm circular polarizer for my Coolpix 5700, Sandisk Ultra II 512, and a Bogen 3021BPRO tripod to start out with, so here's what I bought in order of date bought:


1. Extra battery (only item I bought before the camera)
2. Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6G
3. Close-up lens 6T
4. Tamrac Velocity 7 sling bag
5. SB-800
6. Graduated Cokin "P" filters
7. Nikon 50mm f/1.8D
8. Sto-fen green & gold diffusion domes
9. Sandisk Ultra II 1GB
10. Sigma 105mm EX DG AF Macro
11. A big ol' Quantaray bag
12. Now waiting for my Sandisk Ultra II 2GB to arrive
13. Eclipse solution and sensor swabs

Hmmm. Just about everything you did with the exception of the Tamrac bag (I bought a LowePro Magnum AW), Sigma 105 (I bought the micro-Nikkor), the CU lens and the Sto-fen diffusion domes.

However, I can add:

Manfrotto monopod
SB600
70-200 VR f/2.8
Nikon TCEII 1.4 teleconverter
ML-L3 remote
67 mm circular polarizer

I noticed you have the Kenko 2 extender
I have read that the Kenko is excellent and some of the reading said the 80-400VR with the Kenko 300 Pro 1.4 extender works beautifully and that the 2 would be too much for this lens..anyway i don't want to be greedy 1.4 on the 80-400 brings it way out especially after the extra telephoto produced since it is digital. Just want to know if you have any input. thank you, allen aka "Gadget"

Fred Miranda B&W plug-in
ColorPlus monitor profile stuff
Thom Hogan's e-book
More PS books than I care to list
Enough photographic magazines to sink a ship

I'm also praying that my wife never sees this list!

0. SanDisc 256mg Compact Flash (NEED MORE!)
1. D70 kit, with 18-70mm
2. SB-80DX Speedlight (from my father for cheap, I'll get SB-800 soon)
3. 67mm Bower Linear Polarizer (shop-owner in Vegas swore it was a circular polarizer)
4. 67mm Hoya Circular Polarizer
5. Nikkor 70-300mm 4-5.6D
6. LowePro Nova 4 AW camera bag.
7. Manfrotto 058 Tripod (Bogen 3058 in USA) LOVE IT!
8. Manfrotto 128RC head (really for video, but I do both)
9. ML-L3 Remote control

Now I want:

1. Nikon 6T close-up filter
2. 67mm and 62mm clear glass filters (to protect my lenses)
3. A mini-tripod (for outdoor work close to the ground)

What is the Fred Miranda B&W plug in all about. I have Photoshop CS

Jon,

Do you use your lens pen on your CCD? I've seen ads for them that recommend it, but I have no idea if it works or if it's even worth bothering. Most of the dust I get is so fine I couldn't see it to grab it anyway.

No, I don't. So far I've been able to remove all significant dust from the CCD using the Rocket blower. When that no longer proves sufficient, I plan to get some Eclipse solution and pads. The Lenspen might work on the CCD, but I'm not going to experiment with it!

Louisville, US
          

This is roughly in chronological order. I already had a 48 meg CF card and PCMCIA card reader. I recommend against buying the camera without having a large card on hand, as that is just plain frustrating.

D70+Kit Lens
1GB Lexar 40x CF card with USB reader
el-cheapo UV filter on the kit lens
Extra EN-EL3 battery
Pentax lens cleaning cloth
Promaster shoulder bag (still have, but not used, as you will see below)
el-cheapo walmart tripod (will be replaced sooner or later)
promaster tabletop tripod (uber-sturdy)
(month or two passes)
SB-800 and slew of NiMH batteries
50mm f1.8 lens
(another month or two passes)
36" umbrella and 7' lightstand
Mountainsmith Lumen backpack (*MUCH* nicer than the promaster bag)


For someone starting out, the most important things are the card and a bag. An extra battery is also reassuring, but they do last a loooong time, and if you charge it up before you go out, it will likely last.

Pick a good bag, and don't be afraid to spend some money on it. Otherwise, you'll just waste money on a cheap one until you realize yourself that a good bag is worth the money.

Tesla is 100% right. dont cheap out on a bag, i went thru about 8 before i found the perfect bag for my MF F3. i once even left an old bag i was so disgusted with sitting in the parking lot at levines in boston. some crook thought he had scored a big find but just ended up with a crappy EMPTY camera bag

now that my F3 is for sale to fund my D70... the only thing i took out of the bag was my notebook and the lens pen... the rest goes with the camera!

starting over,

Ow, coming from a tiny Olympus C2020Z camera things have been escalating since March 2004:

- D70 and the 18-70 kit lens
- 2 memory cards of 256 Mb
- a small Giottos bag to carry the camera and the lens safely

Things were nice and quiet then. But I felt SO alone... (a good friend bought a Canon EOS 300D and I haven't seen him since I bought the D70 ) Then I found Nikonians on the web, and due to the many incentives things totally got out of control:

- Nikonians Gold membership
- Nikonians (s)trap
- 3 more 256 memory cards
- Apacer DicSteno CP200
- an SB-800 flash
- a Sigma APO 70-210 f/2.8
- a Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8
- a Nikkor AF 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 D macro
- a Nikkor AF 70-300 f/4-5.6 G
- a Tamron AF 70-300 f/4-5.6 (same range, but to compare quality)
- a Soligor AF 100-400 f/4.5-6.7
- a 2x teleconvertor
- 5 sizes of circular polarizers
- 2 4 Gb Hitachi CF microdrives
- an EN-EL3 (spare battery)
- the wireless remote
- a Lowepro Mini Trekker AW to replace the torn out Giottos bag (birthday gift from my girlfriend )

but now... I'm back in control... just a small check to see second hand bargains. I mean, new this stuff is to expensive, but you just can't let those bargains slip away

So it's CLEARLY a Nikonians problem, so I suggest every Nikonian transfers a Euro/Dollar to my paypall acount to make up for the damage done ?

I can see you are completely captured by the D70 Nikon. I am interested in how you pack the Lowepro AW, especially with a tripod (I notice that you don't list one in your post but assume you ran out of energy in typing in your equipment list) I have the same bag, only got my kit two days ago and have been trying everything with increasing fascination as I uncover more and more of interest.

Rply to Dargan:

My packing goes as such:

Padded compartment (closest to your back): camera and all lenses (Sigma 70-210 and Soligor 100-400 are lying down, all others are standing up when the bag is lying on the floor, the 2x convertor is placed on top of the 50 mm lens). In the pouches (that seem water resistant ?) I've put the filters and the memory cards.

Large (but rather unprotected) compartment: SB800 (in it's packaging with all accessories), extra battery with protective packing, 8 spare AA batteries (I guess it's AA, the type the flash uses), all other small things you may need on a shoot (battery loader, tripod stabilizer that fits in the camera's hotshoe, USB cable of the D70, ...)

On the back (very seldom): the tripod (open the small pocket, pull out the flap and place the tripod feet in the flat, next use the two upper connections to pull it agains the bag , I didn't find any detailed instructions but this keeps everything together )

In the small bag : manuals of D70 and SB800 (hey, I'm a beginner )

In my former Giotto's bag I've put:
- the Apacer portable CD burner plus adapter
- about 12 empty CDROMs
- a borrowed SB26 flash (nice slave for portraits)
- Apacer remote and cables
- ...

If I buy one more lens I'm stuck, then I need to buy additional pouches to attach to the mini trekker (LowePro has these, the trekker is 'expandable'...)

I hope this is a weebit clear, if not, I'll make you a picture...

So how did the Nikon 70-300 compare to the Tamron 70-300. So many of the forum members have the 70-300, but from what I've read it has gotten only "moderate" ratings. I understood that you should buy the ED version at much higher cost.

Any feedback is appreciated.

I want one of those badly - but it just makes my stomach hurt the thought of spending over double on an L bracket what I got a really nice tripod for.

Well, my D70 hasn't come in yet, but I started last month buying gear to upgrade my setup. I've been a pro off and on for over 20 years and have owned Fs, FMs, 6x7 gear, and tons of manual lenses. In the last 10 years I've been doing mostly design work and had pared my equipment down to a 8008s, tamron 28-200 and a 50 1.8AF. I kept all my light stands, tripods, ect. Last month I picked up a mint N90s and vertical grip off ebay for a smoking deal. I started hanging around this board to see what the latest and greatest lenses were and got the D70 bug. I've had the 5400 for about a year and was pretty amazed at the quality. Anyway, here's the new stuff I've gotten in the last month.

180 2.8D EDIF AF
18-35 3.5-4.5D EDIF AF
24 2.8 AF
SB-600
Lexar 1G 80x
Lexar 512 80x

I'm still probably going to buy:
105 2.8 micro
300 4 EDIF AF
14 2.8D (if I can find a smoking deal...)
SB-800
extra camera battery
Tom's book


D800e l D600 l D700 l Nikon 1 V1 l N90s l AF-S 16-35 f4 l AF-S 24-85 f3.5-f4.5G VR l AF-S 70-200 f2.8G VRII l AF-S 50 f1.8G l AF-S 300 f4 l TC-14EII l TC-20EIII l 2x SB600 l Autometer IIIF.

It was easy for me, as I did have some Nikon film stuff already. Luckily so, as the company I worked for went bankrupt (not because of me, I hope) just when I decided to get the D70. Didn't let that stop me =o)

Here's my shot list:

-Nikon D70
-Spare battery (Uniross)
-IR remote
-512mb compact flash card
-An adapter so I can use my SD memory with D70 (Brings me up to 1.5gb total)
-24-120VR
-A Hoya 72mm UV Hmc Super filter for the 24-120
-72mm Hoya Star-six filter I got from e-bay practically free, now collects dust.
- Nikon Capture
- Upgrade from PS7 to PSCS

Next on my list:
- Upgrade my old 800mhz pc sometime this week (Try that w/ Capture!)
- Replace 70-300mm, probably with 80-400VR
- Replace my old Nissin Thyristor with SB800

Well, I was at a disadvantage when I got my D70 since I always shot Minolta in the film world. Therefore, I had to pretty much start over. Here's what I have gifted my D70 since I bought it...

D70 with DX AF-S 18-70 f/3.5-4.5 kit lens
ED AF-S 80-200 f/2.8
DX AF-S 12-24 f/4
AF-S TC 14EII
AF-S TC 20EII
Spare EN-EC3 battery
ML-L3 IR remote
B+W 67mm Slim MRC circular polarizer
B+W 77mm Slim MRC circular polarizer
Cokin 77mm adapter ring (for existing Singh-Ray ND grad filter set)
Really Right Stuff BH-25 mini ballhead for Manfrotto 3007 mini tripod
FlashTrax 20GB portable hard drive/LCD viewer
Lexar USB 2.0 multi-card reader
2 Sandisk Ultra II 1GB cards
Lowepro Micro Trekker to carry it all plus my laptop
Nikon Capture 4.1
Thom Hogan ebook
Nikonians Gold membership
Addition of critical items to my photo gear insurance policy

Will buy as soon as is available in US...DR-6 right angle finder

Ouch!!! Putting it all down in a list really is painful! Until I get out in the field with it all, that is. Somehow all else is then forgotten.

Let's see...

Started with D70 kit w/ lens, strap, battery, and goodies.
Nikon Capture was part of the bundle, but shipped separately.

Lexar 1GB CF card w/ slim USB CF reader
Spare battery
AC Adapter
Small camera bag, big enough for the camera by itself
Small accessory wallet, big enough for spare memory and a battery
Big lovely camera bag, now lovingly adorned with Buckaroo Banzai logo patch
N65 as a backup, and to play with film while I'm using all my Nikon loot
50mm f/1.4 Nikkor AF prime lens (nice for available light)
28-80 f/mumble Nikkor AF zoom lems (default on N65)
60mm f/2.8 micro Nikkor AF prime lens
(kit lens inventoried above)
All lenses have either UV or 1A skylight filters, as available. I've also got the 1.5x magnifier, which fits on the micro. (neat!)
Remote control clicker
Cheapo tripod (need to replace with something more stable, like a bowl of jello on a seesaw)
2x cheapo table tripod (see a pattern here?)
Replacement eyecup, attached with 4 dots of white glue

D70 Kit w/AF-S 18-70mm lens for my wife. Nothing else.

I have a Nikon accessory or two, and have been shooting digital for a while so I pretty much had everything I needed.

Whole bunch of lenses ...BUT Best Buy ..step up rings to 77mm ..standardising for all lenses ...and custom made front threaded 77mm metal lens hood that works on all my lenses. Next toy is custom made retainer tube so my Lens Hood reverse mounts back over any lens I want it to ...for storage and lens protection!

#50. "New D70 user"
In response to Reply # 0

Hi! I am a Nikon film user switching to digital. Just ordered the D70, and some toys:

- Nikon D70, 6.1 Megapixel, SLR, Digital Camera
- Nikon AF VR Zoom Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8D G-AFS ED-IF
- B+W 77mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer Filter
- ACD-218 Lithium-Ion Battery, Extra

The Kaesemann filter is going to be an experiment. I couldn't find any first hand information on whether or not they are any good, or if they are coated or not.

I'll be reporting on my findings.
