Is the D70 able to take 1-2minute exposures? Am a amateur looking for a Difital SLR with this capability.

Yes, the shutter can remain open for a max of 30 minutes.

Can anyone tell me what I would need to take a shot with that long an exposure? Other than a sturdy tripod I mean.

I don't think you need anything else but a tripod.

Well, you'd obviously need a good tripod as you mention. It wouldn't hurt to have a remote release so that you don't introduce vibration by touching the shutter button. You could always trigger the shutter by timer though. If you planned to do long exposure in the day, you'd definitely need some ND filters to reduce the amount of light. Beyound that, I think you'd be set too.

I'm obviously completely dense this week, but isn't the longest shutter time on the D70 30 seconds?
