The Nikon D1X is a Notch Above the Rest


The Nikon D1X digital camera will all but make film obsolete for the vast majority of professional and serious photographers. The kit includes the camera body, battery, charger, FireWire cable, and browser software, but not the lens, strobe light,...

Nikon D1H D1x Review Test Intro © 2004


The D2H obsoleted the D1H in 2003 and the D2X obsoleted the D1X in October 2004. I wouldn't buy either of these D1 variants new today, and personally prefer the lightweight and more advanced amateur D70. This review stays up on my site as an historical...
