Combined with an excellent performance in speed and continuous shooting, and with an image quality good enough to satisfy even professional needs, the D70 is attractive for a wide range of users. A sharp 1,8 inch TFT LCD monitor and a very good battery performance add to the attractive sides. Looked at all round, Nikon has managed to produce a camera that is unusually good value for the money."
