Nikon D2X

PC Magazine
16 September 2006
  • Conclusion: The Nikon D2X is perfect for the enthusiast with professional aspirations who wants to tap into one of the best D-SLR systems available.
  • Pros: Incredible versatility. Great picture quality. Large file sizes for editing and manipulation. Supported by a fantastic array of lenses, flashes, and accessories.
  • Cons: Very expensive. 1.5X magnification factor limits wide-angle lenses. No lens or built-in flash.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon D2X is the lastest in Nikon's series of digital SLRs and goes head-to-head with the Canon 1D mark II and 1Ds mark II. In pixel count the D2X at 12.4MP comes between the 8.2MP 1D mark II and the 16.7 MP 1Ds mark II. It matches the 1Ds frame rate of 5 fps, and in a reduced pixel mode (6.8MP) its 8fps matches the 8.5fps (but 8MP images) of the 1D mark II.

DP Review
23 July 2006
  • Conclusion: It wouldn't be harsh to say that some people were disappointed with the D2H, a great body with excellent performance let down by a slightly experimental sensor which didn't perform to the same level as the rest of the camera. With the D2X Nikon has shifted to a CMOS sensor, and although not yet as clean as Canon's second generation CMOS sensors at higher sensitivities there's no doubting the amount of detail captured combined with Nikon's image processing can produce...
  • Pros: Superb resolution, very good per-pixel sharpness, even more from RAW, Multi-talented camera, also offers 'sports shooting' at eight frames per second, Wide tonal range, good dynamic range, smart auto tone selection, Clean image processing, almost no 'digital' artifacts, a more film-like look, Built as a digital from the ground up, superb design touches, excellent ergonomics, Very solid and robust, environmental sealing ensures reliability, All controls are by default ...
  • Cons: Higher noise at ISO 1600 and 3200 than we would hope (with NR off), Smaller default sensitivity range (ISO 100 to 800) than other digital SLR's, Inaccurate color response from LCD monitor (green hue shift in reds), Disappointing automatic white balance performance under artificial light, Some photographers will miss IEEE 1394 (FireWire), White balance recorded in RAW file not available to some converters, Very poor memory management and performance from optional Nikon...

  • Excerpt: Photo © Nikonian Jerry Burnell Click on image to see full picture Is the Nikon D2X just another notch in the log for Nikon? Not in my world. It is a destination that I have been looking for, for over 35 years. I wanted a quick and simple way to make fairly large (16 × 20 in.), crisp, vibrant, realistic, and yet creative images. That is not asking much for the naive, but I believe I have found it. I am not new to digital.

  • Conclusion: Nikon D2X digital reflex camera The Nikonians have had to wait a long time for the Nikon D2X. For some maybe just a bit too long. And after the introduction it took a while before the first cameras were shipped. But all this waiting was well worth it. The Nikon D2X is definitely one of the best D-SLRs available these days. Especially looking at its price the D2X offers a heck of a lot and therefore it's not a surprise seeing the D2X regularly in the field.

Nikon D2X/D2Xs Experience Report

Outback Photo
9 October 2005
  • Excerpt: We reviewed in the past all major Nikon DSLRs. We mostly bought our review cameras as Nikon does not support us with sample cameras. Kind of expensive to buy a D2X for a review but on the other side we find the Nikon D2X too important to miss an own review (we have a a short review by Laurin Rinder online). Fortunately we will be able to use a production camera owned by one of our many helpful readers.

The Nikon D2x; Nikon’s Flagship Pro Digital SLR

Shutterbug
1 August 2001
  • Excerpt: When Nikon announced the D2X last year at photokina there was a good deal of anticipation about it, and a good wait that followed until it finally arrived. In the meantime, Canon countered with their EOS-1Ds Mark II, which in many ways shaped the competitive landscape. With a street price of $4999.95, Nikon's flagship digital SLR is $3000 less than the $8000 (body only) Mark...

Nikon D2X Digital SLR

Hardware Zone
12 September 2006
  • Conclusion: Handling-wise, we had no complaints with the Nikon D2X. Controls were strategically placed and the durable magnesium alloy body comes armored in rubber seals to keep out moisture and dust. It is built to last too, with a rated shutter lifespan of over 150,000 counts. Up from the D1X's 2.0-inch LCD monitor, the D2X has a 2.5-inch LCD monitor with increased resolution.
