      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I've got camera envy whenever I see someone with a big-ass DSLR (philfort this means you tongue.gif ), but it's such major overkill for my purposes. Enjoy it. thumbs_up.gif

Hey, cool! I'm actually looking at this camera quite seriously, so some additional insight/samples will be useful...

Hey, do DSLRs also have shutter lag like digital point and shoots? It's the only thing I dislike about my S50.

No, the D70 shoots 2.9 frames per second up to 40 frames depending on quality, with a shutter speed up to 1/8000. I've had this camera since it came out and it takes incredible pictures. With an SB-800 flash you can do some pretty funky stuff with it.

There's no noticeable shutter lag, and the good/modern ones like the D70 turn on instantly - so they really behave just like a film SLR in terms of responsiveness.

Heh, I just went the other direction and replaced my S40 with the 5 meg ELPH. Even going that little bit smaller and lighter is going to get me to take the camera more often. wink.gif

 

Let's hear about printers.

so shooting with it this evening is great, can't wait to take it outside though.

 

printing, don't buy a printer, just go to costco, seriously it'll be just as cheap and much better quality.

 

5x7 digi prints from costco are like .69 and 8x10 are 1.29 I think.

Why bother with a tricky digital camera if you are going to take prints to costco? Invest in a good printer. That way you can control your prints. Epson 2200 as good or better thatn Costco. $600 dollars though. Not real portable however. But 13x44 print capable.

so I've taken over 300 pictures thus far.

 

I must say, it kicks ass. go buy it.

 

I shot with the canon digi rebel in Mongolia, and the d70 is way better. werd. thumbs_up.gif

Did you get high write speed flash (like Lexar Pro)? If you did, does it work as claimed? Tried a Microdrive yet?

I got the Sandisk Ultra 2, same as the lexar high speed.

 

I have two 1GB cards. They do write very fast, but I notice it a lot more when transferring my pics to my comp and deleting them. plus I got a CF card reader so I never have to waste camera battery transferring images. thumbs_up.gif

 

but yes, the Ultra speed card is much much better than the regular.
