"D70 hands on preview at dpreview.com"


Sao Paulo, BR
          

Hello all

look at
http://www.dpreview.com/articles/nikond70/

They just posted it. Funny things I realized are

1. 1/500 flash sync only with the external flash? Interal syncs only at 1/60??? Too bad

2. No D-TTL so the SB80/50DX are useless

Hello

Page 4. Body and Design

They quote

"The D70 has a standard Nikon hot-shoe which supports a wide range of Nikon Speedlights including the new SB-800 and SB-600, these new flashes support the Nikon i-TTL flash metering protocol. One thing the D70 doesn't support is D-TTL metering."

One extra thing that I noticed is the fact that in the setup menu, it is not necessary to have the AC adapter in order to clean the CCD. Nice...

...and scary. I've read two reports of folks bypassing the AC power and destroying their shutters when the the bulb setting timed out. I hope the D70 has a failsafe that would hold the shutter open if the batteries gave out.

I have been avidly reading the commentary and reviews that are bouncing around on the D70. I must say the new one on dpreview is the most in-depth I have seen to date. Kudos on the role-over image comparison between the D70 and D100!! The sound clips of continuous shooting should be good too.

In all of the images of the camera I notice that the texturing on the D70 appears "lighter" and less rubbery than the D100. Just from the pictures it does not look as attractive to me (the texture that is). Is it likely that the D70 will have a more plastic feeling grip texture on the body than, say, the D100 and up? It is in a different price bracket and more consumer-orientated so this will not surprise me at all. I am kind of hoping (foolishly probably) that it is just the product images and will end up feeling pro in the hand.

Any ideas or comments out there?

It's pretty clear Nikon has not built the D70 to its own professional standards, but that being said, it looks a lot more professional than the Canon Digital Rebel!

yeah, what do you all think of this?
they state in the hands on preview the internal synch of 1/60 and external synch of 1/500. however, everything else i've read simply reports the 1/500, assumably for the built-in flash as well as externals. what do you guys think is correct? and if they're wrong, could they mean something else? 1/60 would really suck cuz the internal flash would be a waste if it couldn't be used for fillflash.
