Nikon D2Xs

d2x
Review Date: Jun 13, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,999.99 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Image Quality, Handling, Amazing Features, Color, Battery Life, Flexibilty. 2 cameras in one with high-sped crop mode for sports.
Cons:
1. LCD a bit Blue/Greenish. Makes skintones hard to judge on camera screen. 2. LCD cover falls off easily.

Ran the camera on full auto for about a week and it nailed it almost everytime. The few exceptions were those situations that no camera can get without some photographer guidance.

JPEGs are great. TIFF file mode takes forever to save (35 secs for 35MB TIFF with 80x lexar). RAW+JPEG speed is good.

Auto WB is good except when sensor is in different light than subject. I love that a Nikon can finally dial in the WB Kelvin temp when needed.

LCD color is not accurate! Skintones are weong.

Minor issues: 1.LCD cover falls off too easily. 2.Need enlargement ratio when zooming in on image on screen.

This is a great camera and an almost perfect evolution of the 'Nikon Handling'.
