    Well I went and the D50 didn't feel very good like you guys said so I figured what the hell I might as well get the D70. So now I am Nikon guy in both film and digital. :bowdown: Thanks for all the advice guys. Now how long does it take to charge this battery, and how long does it hold charge for? :o

    The battery for a D70 will last over 800. But when you lose the first bar, it dies fast. The first bar lasts forever.

    My canon battery when dead only takes an hour (if that) to get fully charge. :o And I can use it for 2 full day events without having to charge it :naughty:

    Not your type of camera but I have a Nikon Coolpix P3 and my battery fully charges in less than an hour and takes several hundred pics too.

    congrats on the purchase. even though the battery lasts a good amount of time, i highly suggest picking up a second battery just incase.
