Hello all...I saw some discussions from nikonians.org regarding a third party grip for D70 :bigeyes: . Some guy claimed he saw a japanese discussion pictures of grip screwable to tripod mount, with shutter substituted by IR remote built in (no dials) :think: but did not bookmark the page so he can't show us. Just wondering if anybody has heard of it or seen it? :dunno:

omg.... totally tricked out D70..... hmm... too bad the aperature and shutter controls are dummy...... *Sigh of huge Huge super duper dissapointment* if theres a D70 vert grip, i telll u... i surely go get the D70 now plus the grip together mans... and the grip looks like Original... got sticker de lehz....
MB-D70.... Multi Function Battery Pack... and its serials is 000001 lehz.. maybe its a prototype ??? i think Nikon has the capability to produce the Vertical grip for D70.. they haf the brains and pple and the technology to do.. but why din they create it ????? :dunno:

and i am suspecting something... if D70 has a grip.... i think the D2h will be in trouble... looks so alike.... and the functions inside the D70 look abit like a D2h ... expect for its Lbcast sensor and stuffs and the freaky Ambient sensor.... hahahahahahahahhahha.... :sweatsm:

Imagine... if they could create a sensor for the D70 (Ambient Sensor) and stuffs frm the D2h and make it an accessory... whoa.. sure a hit item for all D70 owners.. and its Light too !!!! but remember to count the wireless transmitter out.. cuz it will look damn weird on the D70... hahaha :sweat:

ok.... thats all i think... Super Cool Dude.... i worship u~~~ :devil:

good grief... this chap is darn amazing! :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

seems like he built the grip from scratch. let's hope some enterprising genuis puts this on the market.

i don't think nikon will ever make one. it's all about their product placement. there has to be some differenciation between the D70 and the future D200 (rumoured)
