    Ive just put a deposit on a used d70 and now would like to know of any good tips for getting the best out of this cam? I will be shooting raw 99.99% of the time. processing in capture or maybe dxo then photoshoped.

    That D70 sure was popular... ;)
     
  4. It was and still is a great camera, used a D70s for a year then sold it... first mistake I ever did but I am glad the guy I sold it uses it a lot :smile:

    It makes great images! :biggrin:

    Yep, I love using the D70s. I do get tempted by the larger LCD, faster focus, bigger viewfinder of the newer models, but in the short time it's been with me, it's capture (accidentally mostly) some great moments already. Lenses on the other hand... ;)

    Thanks for all the links settings etc, Its great as Ive managed to get her for peanuts, I wanted to blow more on glass as it will be with me for longer, I know what lenses I use/love the most, though through winning some bargains on the bay (24&28mm 2.8s for £50ish ea) Im only looking for an 85 for a good price now, oh and maybe a 50. But Im looking forward to seeing the diffs between the D70 and the D100. Main reason I went for the 70 over the 50 was the use of compact flash ive got about 15gig of them I didnt want to spend out on sds.
