Nikon D70 Sample Images


Updated: Feb 25th, 2004

We have now added a series of image comparisons between the Nikon D70 digital SLR, Canon EOS Digital Rebel and the Nikon D100. We have also included a comparison of the Nikon D70 digital SLR shooting in Color Mode Ia versus the Color Mode I on the Nikon D100. See link


Feb 11th, 2004

We have just posted a series of images taken with a production level Nikon D70 digital SLR camera (Firmware Ver 1.0) and using the new Nikon AF-S DX 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED IF zoom lens.

From what we have noticed, compared to the Nikon D100 digital SLR, the Nikon D70s white balance settings seem to be geared to be a little warmer.

Our overall impressions of the Nikon D70 so far are very favorable. The Nikon D70's Auto WB, metering (1005-segment RGB 3D meter) and low light noise suppression is very good. (See images below taken at 1000 ISO)

The new Nikkor AF-S DX 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G IF-ED zoom is certainly also an impressive lens. Sharpness and edge to edge detail all looks very good.
