6.1 Effective Megapixel Nikon DX Format CCD: Optimized to deliver a wide dynamic range that produces great pictures with high resolution and sharp details, the DX Format CCD sensor's 6.1 effective megapixels yield 3,008 x 2,000-pixel images that are suitable for making large prints, or for creative cropping to bring out detail.

7 Digital Vari-Programs: Digital Vari-Program selections automatically optimizes white balance, sharpening, tone (contrast), color, saturation and hue settings to best match the selected scene, making creative photography as simple as rotating the mode dial. Choose from Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Close Up, Sports, Night Landscape, or Night Portrait for automated performance that makes the Nikon D70s the right choice, whether you are still learning how to make great pictures or an experienced photographer simply in a hurry to capture precious moments.

New Large 2.0 inch TFT LCD Monitor: Playback options on the new 2.0-inch LCD monitor include single frame, 4 or 9-image thumbnail display, zoom with scroll (up to 4.7x), automatic slide show, histogram indication and highlight point display.

3D Color Matrix Metering: The 1,005-pixel RGB Exposure/Color Matrix Metering Sensor evaluates brightness, color, contrast, selected focus area, and subject-to-camera distance information, references the results against an onboard database of 30,000 scenes from actual photography, then uses high-speed processing to deliver consistently dependable automatic exposures.

iTTL and Nikon's Creative Lighting System : Makes taking pictures with flash as easy as turning the flash on! Easy multiple flash lighting is possible using the new Nikon Creative Lighting System including the SB-800 and SB-600 Speedlights.

Fast - 1/8000 sec. Maximum Shutter Speed & 1/500 Sec. Flash Sync: Shutter speeds from 30 to 1/8,000 sec. and flash-synchronized shutter speeds of up to 1/500 sec. provide a photo experience with greater breadth and creative flexibility to catch more of those important picture moments.

Nikkor lenses: The D70s employs the Nikon F lens mount for seamless compatibility with the comprehensive lineup of high-quality AF and AF- S Nikkor lenses long favored by professionals around the world for their superb color, high contrast and razor-sharp images, as well as for outstanding autofocus. The increasing family of DX Nikkor lenses designed for use with Nikon digital SLR cameras make the options even richer, delivering a wider variety of picture angles, higher performance, and outstanding center-to-edge -to-corner image quality.

NikonCapture Software (Optional): Nikon Capture 4 offers a unique image-editing environment and is the only program that provides complete functionality to edit NEF (Nikon Electronic Format) files, enabling photographers to optimize output for every possible need.

Near-Instant Power-Up in 0.2 Seconds: Turn the D70s on and with a power-up time of a mere 0.2 seconds, it’s ready to shoot. Pictures are processed and recorded extremely quickly. Preview images appear on the LCD monitor almost instantly.

Increased Battery Performance - with new EN-EL3a rechargeable battery: The new EN-EL3a rechargeable lithium-ion battery increases energy capacity to shoot more images while maintaining the same form factor as the EN-EL3 battery. The new Quick Charger MH-18a is smaller than the charger it replaces, and is capable of charging both the EN-EL3a and EN-EL3 batteries. When the need arises, the Nikon D70s can also be powered using CR2 batteries. (Requires the optional CR2 battery holder, MS-D70)

3 fps Continuous Shooting - for up to 144 consecutive shots*: High-speed continuous shooting means never falling behind the pace of the action or missing the moment. The Nikon D70s can shoot a rapid 3 frames per second for a continuous burst of 144 pictures* thanks to optimized systems throughout the camera.*When using JPEG Normal – Large setting, and a SanDisk SDCFH (Ultra II), SDCFX (Extreme/Extreme III) or Lexar Media 80X WA CompactFlash(TM) card

Refined 5-Area AF System - with NEW All-Area Search: Nikons advanced 5-area Multi-CAM900 autofocus system continues to feature a cross-type sensor in the center, broad frame coverage, as well as the same class-leading low light detection and convenient AF-assist illuminator that aid shooting in dark situations. New for the Nikon D70s are refinements to deliver greater precision with fast, more consistent subject acquisition and improved focus tracking when using Closest Subject Priority Dynamic AF or Dynamic AF mode with predictive focus tracking and Lock-on (TM).

Wider Coverage from Built-In Speedlight to 18mm: The built-in Speedlight automatically pops up and fires when natural lighting is inadequate, or to add Balanced Fill-Flash when there is strong backlighting. A new, optimized design for the Nikon D70s increases flash coverage to support lenses as wide as 18mm.

Enhanced Menu Display, Now Easier to Read: A new menu design combining a carefully selected color scheme, the right amount of contrast, and larger fonts makes the user-friendly keywords of the menu displays easier to view and quicker to recognize.

PictureProject Software INCLUDED: PictureProject is refined with an intuitive new user interface that makes image management, editing and sharing easier and more fun. Simply connect the camera to a computer to automatically import pictures. Quickly e-mail or Auto Enhance images, run slideshows, burn CD/DVDs*, and access other commonly used functions via practical buttons. Use drag-and-drop to organize pictures into separate collections, and quickly locate any file by name, keyword, or date.

Footnote:
*Configurations available at individual retailers may vary.

Good digital camera for the price Easy camera to use that functions great. All the megapixels you will ever need for the consumer user. Construction is good and ergonomics is great. Bracketing is a plus to get the ideal exposure. Only complaint is the cheap camera case that won't protect your camera. If you are looking to put nice photos on your computer with ease,then this is the camera for you. A year later I bought the Nikon F100 film camera new and found out that film was better than the digital in overall quality. Digital is nice for instant viewing on a computer but there is still nothing that comes close to film. May 4, 2013
Great Camera I have had several camera's before I got this Nikon and it is a great camera. I have temors so some days i shake uncontrollably and i still go out and take great pictures while shaking. June 6, 2012
Awesome features for an amateur Camera! My dad had owned my Nikon D70 for about 6years before me, when he upgraded, to the SMASHING Nikon D7000! I got his little D70. Itself is an amazing camera, just for an amateur, but when you compare it to dads D7000, it's a baby. But in general the features are good. And all around, it's a great camera. January 15, 2012
Great all around digital slr. Perfect for any shooting situation.Made very well for being produced in Thailand. November 24, 2011
The "Real Deal" pioneer of DSL Cameras Top of the line product with excellent quality imagery; this camera doesn't set the bar, it is the bar! April 14, 2011

Hi there,
I connected my Nikon D70s to my laptop but it does not recognise it. It comes up as "USB device attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognise it". I click it and the properties comes up as "No Driver Details". I dont have the software CDs, and was wondering where I can go online to install the required Driver Software, and the recommended software "Nikon Capture 4" and "win Driver"?

Thanks.

Answer: 
Start out by downloading View NX2 it will allow you to download to your computer and will do basic photo editing. If you want to add Capture you will have to purchase have it.
I would also suggest you purchase a USB card reader to do your downloads, they are very inexpensive and you download directory from the sd card.

Can the D70 take great pictures without the additional 18-105mm lens? Or does it need the bigger lens to function correctly?

Answer: 
The camera body will not function without a lens. The 18-105 will work fine with the D70s unless you you more reach(subject is quite a distance away), then you would want something like the 18-200 or 18-300.
