General prices for D40s are higher than D70s. I don't know why. There are a lot, like a lot, of D70s listed as not working or parts only too. Is that why? Crappier camera perhaps? I'm looking for a couple digital Nikon beaters, that's all. One for time lapse stuff and one for IR conversion. Ps, if you have one you want to get rid of send me a PM. I'm looking for beater quality, just needs to put clean images on a card. Nothing else matters(ugly is fine, 50K+ shutter is fine). Mod, if this is a posting violation, just delete this ps please.
