The plugs that cover the flash sync terminal and the 10-pin remote connector are more separated than on the D3 and D300, making them easier to manipulate. Like the D300, it also has a single cover for the USB, mini HDMI, and AV-out and DC-in connectors; the D3 has a separate cover for the USB port.

While not identical to the D300's, the D700's back controls are very similar. As I've said about previous models, I really like the use of switches for metering and AF mode; in fact, I wish selecting 3D tracking mode didn't require jumping into the menus.
