Nikon D2Hs

D2H
Review Date: Oct 3, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 3 

 
Pros: good ergonomics ; great batterylife ; good AF ; nice menu structure
Cons:
noisy from 400 ISO ; poor AWB ; bad mixed light icw flash , rubber coating peels off easily

I bought this camera as soon as it came out. Before I used F3īs,F5 and went digital with the D1. I lent a D1H and was overwelmed with its high ISO performance and thought the D2H would succeed. It did not :-(
Images from ISO 400 where very noisy, an ugly pattern of noise hard to correct. Most of the time images where too reddish or using when flash too yellow. However, this could be corrected in PP when you have the time for it. Nikon did agree there was a problem with the yellow cast but denied the noise part. Though I liked the exposure with the SB800 I hated the colours when using flash, especially onder mixed lightconditions.
This camera made me very dissapointed in Nikon so I left and switched to the Canonsystem.
