Metering seems to protect highlights
Front and rear curtain slow sync available

Based on the award-winning image quality, high performance and user-friendliness of the Nikon D70, the D70s offers several refinements that will further enhance your digital SLR experience. For starters the D70s features a 6.1 effective megapixel Nikon DX format CCD that yields 3,008 x 2,000-pixel images that are suitable for making large prints, or for creative cropping to bring out detail. With a power-up time of a mere 0.2 seconds, this SLR is basically ready to shoot when you are. Pictures are processed and recorded extremely quickly, and preview images appear on the LCD monitor almost instantly. With the D70s, high-speed action photography is truly a reality. With the ability to shoot a rapid three frames per second (fps) for a continuous burst of 144 pictures, you'll never miss any action. And with shutter speeds that range from 30 seconds to 1/8000 second, or up to a 1/500-second flash synch speed, you'll be sure to have the flexibility you need to capture the action precisely as you want it. Best of all, the D70s employs the Nikon F lens mount for seamless compatibility with the comprehensive lineup of high-quality AF and AF-S Nikkor lenses that have long been favored by professionals around the world. Included with the D70s is the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF -- a compact standard zoom lens that covers the focal length range of 18 to 70 millimeters, which is equivalent to 27 to 105 millimeters in 35mm format.
