Not very happy with this camera

  • Durability:
  • Battery Life:
  • Photo Quality:
  • Shutter Lag

Pros:It has little shutter lag time. I get great shots with a flash.

Cons:Poor autofocus, no manual focus assist grid, indistinct, uninteresting results.

I have owned this camera for about two years, and it has been a source of frustration from the beginning. I used to be a pretty good photographer with my Nikon FE2 film camera. I'm glad I kept it. With the D70 I find my results to be unpredictable. Sometimes I get a clear photo, other times not. Usually, I cannot get a sharp focus on my target (except when I am using a flash). I use the software to sharpen and this helps somewhat, but my film photos were exceptionally clear.
I actually get better results with my wifes 1.3 megapixel Olympus point and shoot.
I have had it with this one. Mine's for sale. Sorry I can't heap platitudes like the others here.
