How brown do you like your toast? The answer, of course, is "It depends." What kind of bread is it? How old is the bread? How thick? What are you going to put on it? How are you feeling at the time? You can't make hard and fast rules, even for yourself. It's even harder to make toast for...

The Baldessa 1 from Balda in the Schwarzwald is one of those cameras that quickens the heart of a collector simply by its looks: beautiful styling and a superb late-1950s West German finish. Unfortunately upon closer examination it turns out to be a bit of a bimbo (for the ladies, think of it as a himbo or dumb hunk--I don't want to be unduly sexist).

About a year ago I called up a stock agency to whom I'd been submitting 35mm and 6x7 slides for years and told them I was considering sending digital files. "Oh, don't worry about that, we scan your slides for you," they kindly replied. No, I told them, I want to start submitting files made...

Incorporating
upgrades based on user feedback and advancement in technologies, Nikon (www.nikondigital.com)
today introduced the D70s 6.1-effective megapixel digital SLR camera. The D70s
builds on the success of the D70, with multiple internal and external refinements
including an improved autofocus system, larger LCD monitor, the addition of
a remote cord port, new graphic user interface, among several other enhancements.
The Nikon D70s has a DX format 6.1-effective megapixel CCD sensor and an improved
autofocus system delivers enhanced performance, especially in Dynamic area AF
and Dynamic area AF with closest subject priority modes. This combined with
Nikon's unique Dynamic Buffer technology (that allows the camera to continuously
take up to 144 pictures at a speed of three pictures per second) makes the D70s
even more responsive and when photographing fast moving subjects.



The D70s incorporates a host of new enhancements and refinements internally
and externally, in addition to all of the advanced features and innovations
found in the D70:

· A refined 5-area autofocus system now has an all-area search priority
to go along with the camera's single area, dynamic area, and close subject
priorities, improving the camera's ability to acquire focus on fast moving
subjects within the frame.

· The camera now boasts a larger 2.0" LCD monitor, making it easier
for users to review images and access menus.

· A new remote port for the MC-DC1 electronic cable release (optional)
allows users to trigger the camera and hold the shutter open via an electronic
cable release

· A built-in Speedlight with a wider angle of coverage, supports 18mm
lenses.

· A new easier-to-read menu design in the D70s uses color-coded menus,
and a larger type-face.

· A higher capacity EN-EL3a battery offers users more pictures per charge.
The EN-EL3a battery comes with a new, smaller MH-18a battery charger. Both the
new battery and charger are included with the D70s.
