Feb 28: Nikon D2X Review - Hardware Zone

Nikon_D2X.jpgHardware Zone reviews the Nikon DX2 and writes - 'Handling-wise, we had no complaints with the Nikon D2X. Controls were strategically placed and the durable magnesium alloy body comes armored in rubber seals to keep out moisture and dust. It is built to last too, with a rated shutter lifespan of over 150,000 counts. Up from the D1X's 2.0-inch LCD monitor, the D2X has a 2.5-inch LCD monitor with increased resolution. The improved RGB histogram display, and separate histograms for the individual red, blue and green channels is a long awaited feature too. The viewfinder is clear and bright unlike the tunnel-like view we get from other DSLRs.

The D2X also chalked a few points up for user friendliness with the Rotate Tall orientation sensor, World Time function as well as GPS support for those on the go. You can further enhance your mobility by attaching the new WT-2/2A or WT-1/1A wireless transmitter for file transfers or remote control of the camera using a computer running Nikon Capture 4.2 (and later). The multiple exposure and image overlay functions are nice touches too, but not every user would find a need for them.'
