Summary: Even today, 8 frames per second with a 40 frame buffer is nothing to sneeze at, but that's about all the D2h has going for today. The D2H achieves this speed by using a 4MP resolution, which even in the day wasn't very much.
Stellar camera, amazing deal, must use to fully appreciate!

Summary: I have the D2H, and make stunningly pleasing photographs with it daily, yes, in 2008. It really is a fantastic camera to use and enjoy. It may only have 4.1 MP, but the resulting RAW files are razor sharp and crisp, beautifully saturated, and nice and quick to download, copy, edit, upload, etc.
Summary: Good: Motor drive speed. Grip feel. Takes Nikon lenses. Reacts fast to pressing the shutter release. Bad: Skin tone renditions a color other than skin. White balance doesn't balance well. Noise at anything above ISO 200, looks like 3200. CF card door tough to open.
Summary: I ordered this camera in December, have had it since then, and it an amazing camera. First time I have ever had professional camera, and it takes time to learn how to use it. It is not a point and shoot camera. If you want large pictures and like to crop, this may not be the camera for you.
Summary: I've had my D2H for 9 months now. I've heard of the magenta skin tones issue but have never seen it..skin tones on my unit are great. It seems this issue plagued a minority of users. Camera is very fast, exposes well and delivers results.
Summary: I have been in the photo business for over 35 years, working professionally all over the world. My most recent assignment was taking "element shots" for the most recent Space Shuttle mission. I only add this to defend my qualifications.
Summary: A timeless classic.If you are just getting into photography,buy one of these cheap and learn from it.I have since sold mine but I learned alot from it.It is somewhat dated now but with it you will learn basic shutter and aperture controls and more.If you see a good used one,snap it up.
Summary: A close friend made the unfortunate mistake of plunking down 2 grand for this camera. Honestly Olympus produces cameras that can do the same thing for $400. I've used hers and the image quality is horrible and the colours are wrong 9 times out of 10.
Summary: This is a great camera in spite of it coming out nine years ago. I got it because I am still considering the new d4 so I decided to try a older model and I love it! in spite of all the past reviews this is a powerful tool and I recommend it to anybody.
