Nikon F70 (N70)

Jump to: navigation, search

The Nikon F70 or N70 as known in the US is a auto focus 35mm SLR camera introduced in 1994. Compared the other models in the line up, it has a unusual interface which requires the holding of buttons on one side of the camera; as well a moving the thumb dial on the opposite side; and viewing the settings in a circular interface on the LCD screen.

The motorized film transport can advance film at up to 3.7fps in high continuous mode; in low approx 2.0 fps; in focus tracking, approx 3.1 fps for continuous servo AF mode. There is also a silent rewind feature which reduces the speed of the drive so there is less noise, because of this rewinding takes longer.
