Any one out there still shooting this camera in the days of smaller lighter high iso camera. Also what are you shooting with it.


I still have my D2h (I think.....).

I'm not sure that I'd describe the D3 or D4 as significantly " smaller, lighter" though...

The D2Hs was better at higher ISO than the D2h, but neither were high ISO champs, at least compared to current DSLR's

With the D2h, I could start seeing noise that I didn't like at ISO 320, and by ISO 640, it was very noticeable. However, my noise reducing technique became more refined during my use of the D2h!

Unprocessed JPG out of camera:

1/125s f/4.0 at 280.0mm iso800

RAW image Post Processed (with obvious heavy White Balance adjustment and noise reduction):

With the D4, I wouldn't have to do anywhere near this degree of post processing, and probably would have shot it at around ISO 3200

At the time, I really didi like the D2h. It was amzing what a 4MP camera could produce:

Nikon D2h ,Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S VR
1/1600s f/4.0 at 400.0mm iso200

1/1250s f/4.0 at 400.0mm iso400
