"have a chance to hold the D70 at Nikon Shinjuku, japan!"


kiyose cit, japan, JP
          

hello everyone im din and im glad to join this group..i have a chance to hold the D70 at nikon showroom in shinjuku japan (this is the only place that they have a demo in japan at this time) at first when i saw the D70 at the adds that they are developing a new digital camera and saw the picture i was not impress about its looks. then i went to nikon showroom accidentally and saw this new D70 on the place that people can look and try it(its just a demo but they are no yet saling this stuff until march 19 at the price of 150,000 yen for a body only) so i try when i pic it up it fit like a glove to may hands and the controls are easy to understand for me and it is true that it is fast. shutter time lag is fast how fast... like d100 shutter they say that the D70 shutter is a new can of shutter so that they cannot compare the two. For short it is a very great camera guys you will be impress when you saw it even the people at nikon are impress when they first saw it they say that the feature are better that the D100 but d100 is a better grade... for me i cant decide which one to buy the value one or the Pro one maybe for a guy like me just dont have a lot of money may be buy the value one but im concern about the durablity about the camera. maybe ill wait until it will sale and see for comment about it. thats all guy and girls thank for reading if u have any Question about the camera that i can answer im glad to help.

Hey Din
I found your comments very interesting. How do you think it would work for photojournalism?
Welcome to the site, by the way.

hello mary

For me im shotting picture about concert, party, people picture u can say photojournalism picture that are publish at our local magazine. For me it will work for photojournalism becouse of its fast respond fastest than my F80 ( i love my F80 guys just compared) Like D100 that has Fast respond for now im still using F80 but i think i will
be using digital (D70) in the near future becouse of film cost to keep more money but film quality is still i love..

How sturdy did the body feel? I know that it is all plastic, but I am expecting it to feel more sturdy and less cheap than the Digital Rebel.

hello flub!

nice question, it is very sturdy thats one of the points of D70 it look like a Pro for me like D100. ("It is more sturdier that Canon Rebel!!thats one thing for sure!!) you'll never think that its made of cheap plastic. about price with its counter part canon Rebel here in japan its thesame..

Is there any way of using a vertical grip with it? Or any ports like the bottom of the d100??

hello Jon!

there is no vertical grip Nikon say becouse D70 is a lower grade than D100 we wish it have...

to tflub:
Can't help myself not to respond to D70 vs. Canon Rebel built question. One thing that is very apparent is that D70 lens mount is metal, while on the 300D (Rebel) is plastic. I can't believe I'm paying $1000 for a camera with a plastic lens mount. If you have some lenses and would like to interchange them quite often, D70 should have the edge.

is that 150,000Y with the lense or without. this is considerably more than $1600USD. May get the thing imported into NZL before I head to Japan.
