Nikon D2X

Editor's Review

The Nikon D2X digital SLR is a big investment for professional photographers. At around $4000, the D2X is not a blind buy, for sure. The cost is prohibitive for all but the pinnacle of Nikon-loving pros, and if you're one of those chosen few looking for an upgrade, the D2X might be the answer. It's a robust, high-speed camera with minimal lag time (37ms) and responsive tools that get all your settings and modifications ready to shoot quickly. The camera also supports an optional Wi-Fi link, and an optional GPS locator, which embeds your images with location information automatically.

3 Years! (James Richardson — 03/04/2009)

I've have this camera for three years and have had no problems as of yet. I would recommend the Nikon D2X, but the D3X is finally out and I'm looking forward to getting one.

A True Blue Pro Rig (Anton Lorenzo — 05/08/2007)

The most important feature of a pro DSLR is that it allows the photographer to take the shot with ease. I use my D2x to shoot everything from my son's soccer games, fashion shows, product shots, glamour and fashion shots and everything in between. This is one fast camera, it focuses fast and accurately. It gives you the confidence to shoot fast paced action with amazing results. The controls are placed just right and allows you to make adjustments on the fly. This camera, combined with pro level lenses from Nikon make a formidable package for those money making photos. A true blue pro rig.

Excellent Pro Camera (D Rajasingham — 04/03/2007)

The D2X is an excellent camera for nature. It focuses super fast in all types of light esp with the Nikkor 70-200 VR. The viewfinder as well as Ergonomics are amazing. Noise at ISO800 is well controlled but could be better. Overall excellent.

The Best! (Augustus Brightman — 01/23/2007)

Hardly a big investment when the return is true love.

Amazing detail (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is not a camera for everyone, or even for everyone who has the budget to buy it. It is a professional camera and sometimes wants for a professional to stand behind it. The sensor packs an amazing 12.2MP into a DX-sized sensor; with good technique, it can match professional medium-format film for detail. And it offers a dynamic range that easily.surpasses slide film. But, like with audiophile-quality speakers, poor input is magnified and made evident... Especially noteworthy is the sensitivity of the camera to vibration; a solid tripod or good VR lenses are your friends with the D2X.

Feature-wise, a professional could not be happier. The 1.5x magnification and High-Speed Crop modes, combined with excellent Continuous AF and shooting modes make it a good candidate for sports and wildlife photography, while the 12.2MP mode will thrill landscape and fine art photographers.

All in all, an excellent camera for serious photography. My next camera is many years down the road with the D2X in-hand.
