DP Review

  • Conclusion: You know how version 2 of anything is always better? Well the D1x takes the strengths of the D1, throws away the weaknesses and builds a whole raft of new functionality, features and usability. And check out the price, you can order a D1x today for approximately the same price as the D1 was when it was launched. I'm quite comfortable applauding Nikon and giving the D1x the crown of the best digital SLR on the market (at the time of writing this review).
  • Pros: Class leading resolution, Class leading colour reproduction, Smooth, clean, noise free images, No more JPEG artifacts, Selectable colorspace (sRGB / Adobe RGB) - superb, New and very easy to use menu system - full text custom functions, New ISO 125 and flexible range of sensitivities (down to 1/3 stop steps), sensitivity now displayed on rear control panel LCD, High ISO noise is now 'film grain like' rather than pattern - good news, Monitor button PLAY mode is now jus...
  • Cons: JPEG/TIFF files are not tagged with colorspace in a standard way, Moiré occasionally visible, Vertical resolution same as D1, Semitransparent LCD cover should have been totally transparent, When camera is powered off only the image currently been written is saved, any other buffered images (say from a continuous burst) are lost, Nikon Capture as an optional extra, it SHOULD be included with the camera, Battery charger could be neater (drop-in style charger), Requires ...

The Nikon D1X is a Notch Above the Rest

PC Magazine
13 July 2004
  • Excerpt: The Nikon D1X digital camera will all but make film obsolete for the vast majority of professional and serious photographers. The kit includes the camera body, battery, charger, FireWire cable, and browser software, but not the lens, strobe light, FireWire board or memory card. At less than $5,500 (street), though, the D1X is reasonably priced for pro equipment, especially considering the lifetime savings on film and processing.

The Digital Journalist
8 June 2002
  • Excerpt: The coming of the Digital Age has meant that digital image capture and transmission is fast becoming the industry standard because of speed and reduced cost to publications. For those photojournalists who have stuck to their film emulsions because of its superior image quality and archival properties, and have been recoiling in horror as the digital tide has steadily crept up on them, relief of sorts is now here. It is called the in Norfolk, VA.

Nikon D1x

  • Excerpt: The long awaited and anticipated Nikon D1X arrived in our offices the other day, and we couldn't wait to get to work with it. To those who have worked with a Nikon D1 the camera offers similar handling and workflow, although there have...

Steve's Digicams
30 June 2001
  • Summary: Nikon changed the world of professional digital cameras forever when they brought out the two years ago. Before the D1 arrived it cost $12K or more for a Kodak DCS series Nikon or Canon-based "professional" digital camera. The D1 at $5850 was an instant hit, so much so that demand exceeded supply for many months after its introduction.

Nikon D1X, la photo, rien que la photo

31 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Cela fait quelques mois que j'ai envie de me lancer dans l'écriture de ce test, et je n'ai jamais vraiment osé m'y mettre. C'est que cet appareil de photo, même si je l'utilise assidûment depuis janvier 2003, il m'impressionne toujours un peu.

Album: Nikon D1X

16 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Nikon D1X 專業機身,重、堅固,托實,最好影 RAW ,再用 Nikon Sofeware 轉 Jpeg ,對焦超快,快門聲音靚、金屬色澤理想,如果用新一代改良 CCD 放在其中那便更好,AWB 方面要考功夫,上一代的機之中最近菲林感覺!
