33.3% of Users Would Not Recommend this Digital Camera
TOTAL USER RATINGS: 15
PROS: Excellent image quality, Efficient, Robust & Reliable would fill 85% of photographic needs
CONS: Perhaps too many custom functions. Supplied RAW conversion is slow. This camera is expensive to most and should be supplied with professional quality software without having to spend more
PROS: Resolution, tonality, customizable user features
CONS: Price; encrypted white balance
PROS: top performer, brick solid, tops 35mm, Matrix metering, fast AF, speed of operation, etc, etc
CONS: Huge file size
PROS: Pro build. Solid and excellent balance. Focus Speed. Unreal color rendition. Pro features. Multiple Exposure. Shutter speed. Viewfinder and its data. Focus points. Wireless Option. GPS Option.
CONS: Focus system complexity and thus learning curve for some more novice or intermediate users.
PROS: Excellent colour & contrast; great tonal range; full details in both shadow & highlights; superb handling; beautiful skin tones; and speed to die for.
CONS: Few but the cost.
PROS: Ok guys, lets just wait until the production models come out before we start reviewing this. Sheesh!
PROS: I agree with the last post. How can you rate this camera when it is not out. Noise and quality compared to cannon? how can you make this comparison
PROS: I can't recommend a camera I haven't tried or just because it is made by Nikon even though I am a Nikon shooter since 1972. There are no FACTS yet, just marketing and press releases. I was a aerospace engineer for 14 years who had to constantly battle over marketing misrepresentations. I am also a camera repairman and I wouldn't give you a dime for certain Nikon lenses and cameras they have produced through other Mitsubishi Group partners, in the past or present. Twice the amount of pixels in the same APS sensor size is a good thing but not incredible. This was accomplished by halfing the size of each sensor to around 5 microns. I can't wait to test the sharpness, color and resolution against my D70 under identical conditions. I have written Nikon asking about shutter cycle reliability and they tell me thay cannot quote me that spec. They quote it with their professional film cameras, why not their Pro Digitals? Canon digital EOS-1D Mark II is tested at 200,000 cycles. Olympus's digital E-1 is tested at 150,000 cycles. Nikon...it is your turn. I will rewrite this OPINION when I get my hands on one and give it a real test.
CONS: Half the ISO sensitivity. Possibly twice the digital noise. Reverted back to 1/250 sec flash synch. D1X and D70 should still be better for daylight fill flash. Who cares about multiple exposures in camera when you can use software to do a superior job of the same task? I think I will go out and buy a back up D70. I can own two excellent cameras at half the price. I won't be driving any tent stakes with my camera any time soon so ruggedness is not an issue for me.
PROS: Build quality, 12.4 pixels, fast.
CONS: CMOS chip is not as good as a CCD. Not full frame which means noise. Let me explain. In order to cram 12.4 mega pixels into a smaller chip, like the one on the D2X, the pixels have to be shrunk down. Smaller pixels means more noise. I would not want to be first to buy this camera as a series of firmware upgrades is likely.
PROS: As always, well designed body, large buttons (!), and large LCD screen. Pricewise, new D2X will cost less than expected making it more accessible to wider spectrum.
CONS: D2X is build into same body as D2H. It is almost identical. That tells me that Nikon didn't really come out with anything "new" but just improved D2X.
