Nikon has introduced two new
professional digital cameras - the D1X and D1H. Both models are founded on the
D1, which was one of a number of cameras to establish a new price/quality
threshold to the high-end SLR market.The new cameras aim to give professionals
what Nikon's in-depth research has revealed professionals want - which is
choice. They can now opt for the super-high resolution of the D1X, or the
fast-action workflow-based D1H.
While inheriting many of Nikon's fundamental concepts in digital camera manufacture that were embodied in the D1, both cameras boast a wide variety of enhancements that make them stand out from competitive models, and place them a generation further on from their predecessor.
The D1x allows photographers to capture images at 5.47 megapixel resolution - 3008 x 1960 pixels - while also enjoying improved colour management capability for super-high colour fidelity in a wide variety of applications and locations. An improved version of the Nikon Capture software allows full 16-bit image quality and control either in the studio or when post-processing RAW files.
The D1H offers uprated consecutive shooting - up to 40 shots at five frames-per-second - as well as faster image processing and data transfer both to CompactFlash and direct to computer.
