"D70"


Virginia Beach, US
          

I noticed in the recent reviews on the D70, that the camera has an image rotation feature,and can turn a horizontal image into a vertical image. Does this mean that the D70 does not require the camera be turned vertical inorder to take a vertical picture? Anyone?

No it does not. What it means is that if the camera *is* turned, the file that comes out will be taller than it is wide. If the camera is held normally (not turned) the file will be wider than it is tall.

By contrast, on the D100, all the files are wider than they are tall, and the ones shot vertical are laying on their sides. You have to rotate them yourself in Photoshop (or whatever). The D70 feature just saves you a step.

no, you'll still have to turn the camera to take a vertical picture. (tho that would be pretty handy, eh? ) the image rotation feature on the D70 just means that the camera can sense what orientation it is in so that the images are recorded appropriately. this way, when you go to view or edit your images on the LCD or your computer, they'll be oriented right side up. this feature is great to have, but actually, it's not new. a lot of point and shoot digital cameras have this feature. too bad tho, i like your idea! but for it to be possible, they'd have to design some mechanism that could rotate the digital sensor and modify the viewfinder.

Not exactly, The image sensor has the lenght:width ratio as 35mm. With older DSLR's an image taken in the portrait format would result in an image file that would need rotating to make it "upright". The D70 will do this in camera, saving some post processing time and making things easier to look at on the camera.

Hi,

From the 'leaked' images that were shot with the D70 I saw something different. The image has the same orientation regardless wether they are shot upright or sideways. There is however a tag in the image that descibes the orientation so that image manipulation software can use this and shows it in the right orientation. This is described on page 168 of the D70 manual.

Regards,
Bas

I'm 99% sure that the above answers are correct. Here are some more photos, that show the frame to be ratio typical of 35mm. Photos
It would really suck if nikon employed a square frame...reminds me of 126....shudder

Hi Mike,

I'm not refering to the aspect ratio of the image. This doesn't change. What I mean is that each image from the D70 has information embedded that tells the software what the right orientation for the image is. The playback function of the Nikon has the ability to either ignore this information or use it to display the image in the right orientation (page 168 of D70 manual).

Hope I made myself clear,

Regards,
Bas.
