Nikon has taken the wraps off their new professional level digital SLR, the Nikon D2xs. An upgrade/follow up to their Nikon D2x, the D2xs shoots at 12.4 megapixels, can capture full resolution images a 5 frames per second, and will be available in late June for a body-only price of $4699.
Nikon D2xs Features
- 12.4 megaxpixel, DX format CMOS sensor
- Capable of 5 frames per second capture at full resolution and 8 frames per second at 6.8 megapixels
- Viewfinder mask, while in high speed capture mode hides the part of the frame that won’t get captured (since it’s only taking 6.8 megapixel images)
- 2.5 inch LCD with 170 degree viewing angle and 230K pixels
- 11 area autofocus with 9 cross type AF sensors
- 37ms shutter release time
- Image Overlay feature allows you to merge several RAW files into one file
