The Nikon F70 (or N70 as it is known in the U.S.) is an SLR camera formerly manufactured by the Japanese Company Nikon.[1] Introduced in 1994, it is the predecessor to the Nikon F80. This camera is known for its unusual user interface which uses a combination of function and set buttons along with the thumb wheel to navigate the nestled settings. It is quite different compared to other Nikon SLR's of the same era.
