    Has anyone here heard a rumor that one can successfully change the
    D70's firmware over to the D100's firmware version, for the sake of
    improved features/performance in the D70?

    I just bought my D70 and I mostly love first digital slr. My
    only reservation about the D70 is that when shooting with the built-in
    speedlight, I must change the white balance value all the way to -3,
    in order to get rid of the markedly blue cast the speedlight gives the

    I used the Coolpix 995 for three years before making the change to the
    D70, and found the 995 required the white balance to be tuned to -1,
    to get rid of the 995's blue cast in images shot with its built-in

    Anyways, any ideas one the speedlight's blue color temperature, and/or
    on the rumor of such an arbitrary and radical firmware change??

    I'm with you except the sensor. I thought the D70 and D100 had the same

  3. yes and no. d70 uses a "second-generation" revision of the sensor in d100.
    so the same sony 6mp sensor model, but refreshed design.

  4. There is a suggestion that it was a Nikon fabricated sensor. Nikon is making
    their own sensor for the D2H.

  5. D2H: Nikon-developed LBCAST sensor. So yes, their own, or more likely
    "quasi-own" (manufactured according to Nikon design & specs) as I don't
    think Nikon owns a silicon-processing fab...

    D100: standard Sony 6MP CCD
    D70: same as above, but "2nd generation"
