Re: "for" message on LCD
It means you need to format your compact flash card. Or...it may be that you've been bitten by the infamous BGLD problem (Blinking Green Light of Death) that caused my D70 to eventually be replaced by Nikon. Thankfully it was under warranty at the point, which yours will not be.
If you haven't ever formatted your card, this is probably the problem. To do so, just hold the two buttons that say "for" in red on them down for a second so that the letters "FOR" start to blink, then do it again while seeing that. Let go and wait a couple of seconds. The FOR will be replaced by numbers that tell you how many images you have left on the card until it is full. I format my cards EVERY time I put a card back in the camera. This prevents bad locations from cropping up on the card and creating bad images (corrupt).
I had the same problem but solved it by formatting my cards on my computer. When it didn't work I tried again only this time I right clicked and found it was formatting in the Fat 32 mode which apparently the D70 does not support. I changed it to Fat and that cleared up the problem. I believe I had formatted those cards previously in my D200 and therefore it formatted in the Fat 32 mode and thus caused the problem in my D70.

I had the same problem with my D70.
Ended up having the shutter repaired at the tune of $135.
Works fine now.

Hope this helps
According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
rXX on the LCD normally indicates how many exposures the buffer can currently hold. I'm not sure why you're getting this problem but try the camera on a different quality setting to see if you still get r10 or if the message changes.
I don't think there is really any such thing as a 100% "natural picture". What your eyes see and what film or a sensor "see" are not the same. All photos are manipulated to some degree whether it be from the type of film or the digital "modes" you use. If you would have shot with a film such as Velvia, the greens may have been more "stellar" or maybe too green. There are a number of settings you can use to get the results more to your liking with a D70, or shoot NEF and post process to your liking. Your exposure will make a difference so you may want to bracket.
