No, it does not. Only digital bodies will support the WA for Lexar cards.

You're welcome, the I/O is limited by the camera body in this case, a 45x Transcend would be more than suitable.

Hmmm, after checking, it seems it does:

Nikon D70 (from Nikon Sg):
Fast recording that supports FAT 16 and FAT 32 formats, along with Lexar WA (Write Acceleration) technology for greater speed and larger storage options.

I seem to recall a long long series of posts in DPReview saying that it doesn't.. lemme check again :think:

OK link is here:

Just as fine, cause in this case the I/O is limited by the camera's I/O chip and not really on the card, think you won't find much difference on a 25x and up card. :)

Urm from what I read, they're all deducing that the D70 doesn't support WA and it wasn't really mentioned from any source D70 doesn't support WA :)

Well, further down, a couple of them contacted Nikon support in their respective countries and most of them, excelp Nikon France, said that it did not.. even Lexar's site did not like the D70 as one of the cameras that support WA, though all the other Nikon DSLRs were, list not updated perhaps? :dunno:

Likely the lists are not updated, if you read the manuals, heck, the D100's manual doesn't even list Lexar as one of the cards they recommend! :)
