DSLR: Nikon D70 by Peter iNova with Uwe Steinmueller

Since my days of taking photographs with the Rolleiflex cameras I have taken an interest in new technology. When the first SLR'S appeared in the shops I got hold of one through my grandmother buying it for me. long before the first digital cameras appeared I along with many others were hearing rumours about a new camera that didn't need film. when the first digitals appeared I stayed on the side lines. I wanted to know how effective this new technology was going to be. Sometime later I purchased a top of the range compact. I was pleased with the result. I used this new camera for illustrating my stories and my Nikon SLR film cameras for front cover and full page pictures. When Nikon launched their first Digital SLR I was quite excited until I was told the price. Last year Nikon launched the D70 at a price within reach of many Nikon SLR film users. I read the rave reviews studied the various reports and listened to other photographers talk excitedly about their results. I eventually took the plunge and purchased a Nikon D70. I am so pleased with the results, that I am now shooting everything digital. I felt the camera manual left a lot desired.
