“The Nikon F70 35mm SLR camera is an underrated camera,...”

Written on: 28/02/2002 by Tarquin. (1 review written)

Good Points
Meters manual focus lenses. Reliable metering (matrix, spot, centre-weighted). Fast motorwind (3.7fps). Wide shutter speed range. Vari-programme mode. TTL flash very accurate. Comprehensive viewfinder display. Auto-bracketing in 1/3rd stops. Solid build. Access to huge AF & MF Nikon system. Quick recall button.

Bad Points
User interface takes some getting used to. Would like changeable screen (one with grid lines). No mirror lock-up.

General Comments
The Nikon F70 35mm SLR camera is an underrated camera, largely due to its somewhat maligned user interface. Personally I find it easy to use, but accept that others may not. Many features are derived from the F90. It's also very reasonably priced on the used market - picked up a second body with guarantee for £175 last month. Its ability to meter manual focus lenses marks it out for me as a better deal that the newer F80. Its build is also better.

In summary it has enough features for the enthusiast to be able to exercise total creative control when needed, but also a point-and-shoot capability for those who want it as well.
