This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Nikon D70, six megapixels, $1000 digital SLR: Digital Photography Review:

"Pre-PMA 2004: Nikon today announced details of its $1000 D70 digital SLR. The D70 appears to be based around either the same or a similar CCD as the D100's (not LBCAST as some had predicted). Body design is also very similar to the D100, a few of the new design hints such as the triangular red stripe on the hand grip come from the D2H. This clearly opens up the entry level digital SLR market yet further providing real competition to the Canon EOS 300D. The D70 will cost $999 as body only and $1299 with the new 18 - 70 mm DX lens."

This, my friends will be hard for even me to resist. The way I see it, with two nice lenses already in my possession, a 28-105mm and a straight 50mm, a 6 MP digital body from Nikon is in my future. While I have enjoyed my two little Nikon SLR's I have found myself using my Canon A70 more due to cost considerations and the instant gratification factor.

Six Megapixels is enough for most mere mortals. Three will suffice for most casual shooters. There is a new eight megapixel version of the Canon 1D Mark II coming down the pike as well, but I just can't see that being practical for me for another decade or so. And yes it does cost an arm and a leg. That's if your arm is worth two grand and your leg is worth three grand. Yikes!

A more detalied 10 page report on the D70 is now up at DPreview.com
