Strengths:    fairly easy to use

Weaknesses:    slow response, even w/o flash

Bottom Line:   
A pretty good camera, got a lot of good photos but something got caught internally with motor advance, and (see above) nikon corporate repair center in NY wants $89 to fix! other companies that I have sent products (products that failed, not broken or abused) into for repairs send back a new one or repair it no questions asked. those companies/manufacturers will have my business FOREVER! Nikon will not EVER sell me another product! Have one of your employees take a Business 101 class, Nikon......maybe keep some customers instead of driving them away!

Submitted by Dennis Hubbs a Expert from Bloomfield, CT

Date Reviewed: June 7, 2001

Strengths:    Decent overall pictures
Lightweight


Weaknesses:    Somewhat cheaply built in China
Slow zoom operation; buttons on top
Mid-roll rewind button can get stuck
Not for steady/heavy use


Bottom Line:   
This camera was purchased mainly due to the Nikon name. It did not live up to expectations! Recently (after not quite two years of well-protected ownership),
the autofocus system quit, causing the shutter not to release. Also, the leaf-type lens
cover stopped closing fully when the zoom retracted during power-down. Very
frustrating, especially when in the field. I canned it for a Canon Suershot 85 Zoom
Platinum. This camera should be purchased only for occasional use and, for me, was
not dependable at all.

Submitted by Kevin Morrissey a Intermediate from CT

Date Reviewed: January 27, 2001

Strengths:    Good Sharp pictures, nice zoom, flash, autofocus. Easy to use. Date function easy and flexible. Novice is able to take very good pictures with little or no direction.

Weaknesses:    Poorly built. Cheap Plastic construction. Broken in 2 years with over a $100 repair bill estimate. This is not the same kind of Nikon you get with higher priced models.

Bottom Line:   
Features are all there for this model but construction quality is poor. Given Nikon's reputation, this type of camera will continue to improve. This camera may be useful for the occasional "Christmas Shot" but cannot take normal wear and tear usage.

Submitted by Dave Eloranta a Expert from Wisc.

Date Reviewed: December 16, 2000

Strengths:    Sharp pictures.
The One-Touch Zoom 70QD had a good auto focus.
Easy to use, few buttons, easy mode changes. I bought it for my mother-in-law for a gift. She specificly wants a camera with red eye reduction.


Weaknesses:    The red eye reduction doesn't work. I tested the camera with one roll of film and every picture of my kids had red eye problems. I'm returning the camera monday.

Bottom Line:   
I liked the feature list. If it only delivered.
