This where we find the lens and not too much else but it of
course the side of the camera that takes the pictures. On the D70 the
Built-in Speedlight lock release button, also doubles as the Flash Sync
mode button, and Flash exposure compensation button. Almost invisible
is the Infrared receiver just above the D70 emblem. There is also the
Lens release button and the Focus-mode selector.

with your left hand. Push the lens release button down with your left
hand thumb, turn the lens to the right and lift gently to remove.
Reverse the procedure to attach a lens. Always try to keep the camera
