Nikon D70 Digital SLR camera review - Reviews Index
Front of the D70 Camera

frontThis 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.

On the front left of the camera we have the Sub-command dial and the combination Self-timer lamp, AF-assist illuminator, and Red-eye reduction lamp. Plus of course the depth of field preview button.

Front left of camera :

Sub-command dial

The Sub-command dial controls the aperture in all automatic and manual Exposure modes except the fully automatic .............more to come here

Self-timer lamp, AF-assist illuminator, and Red-eye reduction lamp -

Self-timer lamp - will blink and then light for one second before shutter is released

AF-assist illuminator - in low light situations will allow the lens to autofocus.

Red-eye reduction lamp - reduces red-eye cause by direct flash from the camera.

3. Depth of field preview button -

The depth od field of the aperture selected can be previewed through the viefinder of the camera by manually closing the aperture of the lens.

Front right of camera :

1. Speedlight lock release button, Flash sync mode button, and Flash exposure compensation button -

Speedlight lock release
- push the button and the internal flash will pop open. The internal flash will not open if a Nikon Speedlight is attached to the hot shoe and turned on.

Flash sync mode - push the button and rotate the Main command dial to access different flash modes. Flash modes will be visible on the LCD control panel and the analog digital display in the viewfinder.

Flash exposure compensation - push the button and rotate the sub-command dial to access Flash exposure compensation levels.

2. Infrared receiver -

The infrared receiver is for remote control use. (Nikon Remote Control, ML-L3)

3. Lens release button

The lens release button is somewhat self explanatory. Hold your camera 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 body covered - dust is your enemy.

4. Focus mode selector

AF (Auto focus) and M (Manual) selector
