Nikon D2Hs

D2H
Review Date: Apr 22, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast AF - Speedy camera to work with. Pro build is excellent. Layout of buttons well thought out. Easy to use camera.
Cons:
none really... some noise issues, but not enough to be a distraction.

Been playing with my D2h for just over a month now, and in that time, I have fallen in love with this camera. I pretty much don't use my D100 anymore, and when I do, only as a backup 2nd body.

I was skeptic about getting this camera for my theatrical photography work, with all the reports about noise at higher ISO. When I shoot at ISO 800, no problems with noise at all. I get a little bit of noise at 1600 - but with a little Noise Ninja, that is quickly resolved. The noise is really not as much of an issue as I thought it would be. I agree with others that the LCD does not do the picture justice, and the results on my computer screen are always far more impressive.

I would definately recommend you get a D2h if you're thinking about it!


 
Nikon D1

D1
Review Date: Dec 9, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,300.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Fast shutter, large buffer, professional body based on the F5... good camera all around!
Cons:
ISO Range is limited in comparison to the D100 - I wouldn't shoot past ISO 800; Battery life is not great, and requires multiple batteries on hand when shooting.

I got my D1 after shooting with the D100 for 1.5 years. I was looking for the pro body experience. After using the D1 now for 3 months, I really like the results from this camera. the 2.7 megapixel sensor is not a deterant at all. I shoot mostly RAW images with my D1, and post process them with Nikon Capture, I am able to match the resolution of my D100 without loss of quality whatsoever. The price was right, and the results are excellent!

Pros:
Cons:

I purchased this lens about a year ago, I was looking for a longer prime to compliment my 50mm 1.8. This is a great lens, very sharp, good for more than just portrait work. Highly recommended
