To Users of Digital Cameras with Interchangeable Lenses: Foreign Matter on the Low-Pass Filter
Nikon takes every possible precaution to prevent foreign matter from coming into contact with the low-pass fi lter during production
and shipping. The D70, however, is designed to be used with interchangeable lenses, and foreign matter may enter the camera
when lenses are removed or exchanged. Once inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the low-pass fi lter, where it
may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To prevent foreign matter from entering the camera, do not exchange
lenses in dusty environments. To protect the camera when no lens is in place, be sure to replace the body cap provided with the
camera, being careful to fi rst remove all dust and other foreign matter that may be adhering to the body cap.
Should foreign matter fi nd its way onto the low-pass fi lter, clean the low-pass fi lter as instructed on pages 194–195 of the Guide
to Digital Photography, or have the low-pass fi lter cleaned by authorized Nikon service personnel. Photographs affected by the
presence of foreign matter on the low-pass fi lter can be retouched using Nikon Capture 4 version 4.1 or later (available separately)
or the clean image options available in some third-party imaging software.
