    Description:
    Excellent Condition Nikon D70 Digital SLR with AF-S Nikkor 18-70mm 1:3.5-4.5G ED DX Lens. Comes with Manual, Camera Strap, Sun Shade for Lens, 256mb SansDisk Memory card, Stock battery and charger and Lowepro Camera Backpack. This is an awesome camera but it's just sitting. This camera takes amazing low light level photographs. Someone else could make better use of it. Total Shutter releases are 1526.


    What are this camera's strengths/weaknesses. How do I learn how to use it?

    it was a nice camera in its day.. but it's old. a 1500 shutter count is hard to believe

    Yeah, thats a bit high (price). I loved my D70 til the day it broke on me but it IS outdated. For a beginner though, go out, shoot and learn.

    It was just the order that they were all posted. Pawis saying "noobs will sackride you, elitists will rape you" then your pics, then vbp6us bowing down to your pics... it just fit the pattern so well. :hsd:
