Work fine, took a bit to get it to work, apparently someone "exercised" the menu controls.
Used from the early 2000's. My second D70. The first I loved, my first digital camera, it got a lot of use. Those images even at only 6MP worked great for gallery shows and books. This used D70 was very sticky all over. I cleaned it with alcohol then a light coat of olive oil smoothed it right out. ...

I don’t hear the difference
The D70 was subtly more detailed and clinical sounding. I slightly preferred the 6000N, but I would say it was 3% better if I was to pull a number out of my rear end.

Great camera for the money
When my old Nikon N70 film camera died - for the second time - the digital age was upon us. Through the years my lenses and external flash laid in my old gadget bag doing nothing. And then I saw this D70, and I wondered. Will it work with my old lenses? So I ordered one at a fraction of the price fo...

The D70 seems long in the tooth to me personally with the lack of auto-focus zones and slow write speed to flash memory through quick consecutive shots. These days I'm a non-serious amateur photographer. Lots of focus on family, sporting events, portrait, and nature shooting. The most common lens I shoot on are the Nikkor 50mm 1.8f and 70-200mm 2.8f (mostly this guy).
More than I expected
This D70 was a steal, and was actually a lot more than I expected after reading the users description. It came with everything listed, plus the battery charger and battery. The only thing I needed to get was a card. The camera body itself was in excellent condition and may as well have been a refurb...

Help With Nikon D70
I'm not 100% sure, but I'm 99% sure the issue is the capacity. 32GB was a massive amount of data when the D70 came out. If your camera has an early firmware build, I wouldn't be surprised if it only supports 4 or 8GB cards. So my first thing would be try a smaller card, second is update to the latest firmware.

Nikon D70
At the time the price was right for the D70 to be used as MY FIRST DSLR camera. It was used, but new to me. I have a cousin that had this camera for years and she raved about it when I mentioned wanting to learn I bought it. It helped that we had the same camera so when I called to ...

Is it a bad idea to buy DX lenses over FX lenses for a DX camera?
The smartest advise I received was to purchase FX lenses when I purchased by D70 (a long time ago). I've upgraded bodies several times and never had to repurchase a lens for the newer bodies.
Good Deal, good product
Well packaged, in great shape, almost factory fresh. Battery was charged, put a memory card in it and a lens on it and started shooting. Would buy from them again.
