Back-up battery for D70
For those D70 owners looking for a second Nikon EN-EL3 Lithium-Ion Battery (7.4v 1400mAh) as a back-up for the original that came with the camera, the Nikon EN-EL3a that ships with the D50 and D70s, also fits our D70. It's capacity has been stepped up to 7.4v 1500mAh, and it costs about $7 more than the original. But it would make a great prime battery, with the OEM as a back-up. Nikon is selling a new charger to match up with the 3a. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see no reason not to continue using the OEM charger for both. It will just take a little longer to charge up the 3a.
In Life, as in Photography, things look much brighter, once you remove the lens cap
