Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT vs. Nikon D70 DSLR

 

Canuck digicam site Digital Review has a comparison of two primo digital SLRs: Canon's Digital Rebel XT and Nikon's D70. Obviously, either unit will get the job done but, even though the Canon has a higher resolution, they give the Nikon a slight edge,...

Nikon D70 SLR Digital Camera Camera

 

Professional photographers have been buying Nikon's digital single-lens reflex cameras for several years, but at $1000 (body only), the 6.1-megapixel D70 is the company's first SLR that's affordable for the advanced consumer. If you own a recent...

The D70's rechargeable battery was still going strong when we stopped testing after 500 shots. It also comes with a converter for use with three disposable lithium CR2 batteries--an expensive option, but handy for emergencies. You get no media card...

The D70 is Nikon's first digital SLR for the advanced hobbyist.

Confirmed Nikon aficionados with an existing investment in lenses and accessories will love the D70, but it definitely takes some getting used to.

Nikon D70 SLR Camera Review - PCWorld

 

Fast power up

Not compatible with older, manual focus Nikon lenses

Did not shine in our full-automatic exposure tests, but offers interchangeable lenses and a full set of digital SLR features.

nikon d70

 

Comprehensive, professional-level features. Extremely sharp images, excellent balance when shooting with pro-level controls

In default mode, daylight exposure looks slightly cool ; daylight and flash shots are slightly underexposed. Plastic body. No PC connection to control studio strobes

Nikon D70 review

 

Nikon D70

Excellent dynamic range, color accuracy, and noise profiles; terrific continuous-shooting performance; feature set accommodates a variety of users.

Nikon's RAW-file editing software costs extra; camera saves only one set of custom parameters.

The Nikon D70 is a great enthusiast dSLR.

Nikon D70 Review

 

The D70, announced on 28th January 2004 is Nikon's answer to the new sub-$1,000 digital SLR market, its clear competition being the Canon EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) announced last August. The D70 is revealed by Nikon exactly two years since the D100, the...

Excellent resolution and sharpness, seems better than EOS 300D / EOS 10D Neutral color balance, 'Nikon like' (tuned towards skin tones) Good clean sharpening algorithm leaves almost no 'halo' artifacts Low noise even at high sensitivities, more...

Moiré / maze artifact pattern visible in certain images at the limit of resolution Bug which incorrectly tags images as Adobe RGB (we expect a firmware fix) Vignetting / lens shading on the AF-S DX 18-70mm lens at 18 mm, F3.5 Still a very average...

Shortly after Canon announced the EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) and it made its way into reviewers hands it was fairly clear that Canon were offering a formidable package at an excellent price which would be the mark for affordable digital SLR's of the...
