Please share your "best" D1X shot.
Jul 19, 2006

I love love love this camera for its film like quality and I noticed that because of the camera's age, most threads are about the D200 and the D2X. For those of you who still love and adore their D1X, please share your best shot. Thank you.

Thanks for responding. It's easy to share your pics. Try out photobucket.com and there you can upload your photos and then paste a link to them here. Piece of cake and its free. I really look forward to seeing your best shot.

I tried a D1X briefly and my cats had this WICKED professional velvia touch to them, very pretty that I did not get with the more digitally enhanced pixels of the D200. LOVED the D1X but this particular model had mold or some type of fungus. I had bought it used from BH and the very first time I took it outdoors and held it up to the sky I saw all these little bubbles all over. It should be clear. I recall reading an article about how bad that can be.

I will be getting my next one through Amazon. It's a used D1X that has around a 1,000 shutters on it. Sounds promising. He's shipping it express from CA today and I'm hoping I'll get it by Friday. Fat chance but I'm hoping. fingers crossed

Bought a D1x today
In reply to Melissa007, Jul 19, 2006

I've been needing/wanting a second body to augment my D200. After thinking about it for a ocuple of weeks, it came down to another D200 or a D1x. I have mostly manual focus lenses, so I wanted something I could meter with. When I came across a very nice D1x at less than half the price of a D200, I pulled the trigger.

BTW -- Which version of Capture do I need to process at 10 meg?

I actually have a D200, but if you start a thread like this, shouldn't you ante up one of your "best shots" to start the ball rolling??

Melissa, it was probably not mold or fungus, just a dirty sensor. Most people clean thier own sensor, but for a fee, there are places that will clean the sensor for you. Do a search on this board for several threads on self cleaning the sensor.

Best of luck on your new camera.

I used Capture 4 and that works just fine.

I will do just that this weekend. I will post my kitty. Her fur looks so soft with a glow that I'll post here over the weekend and you can see. I think its a matter of taste. One prefers chocolate over vanilla kind of thing because they are both beautiful cameras.

Thank you Skip but for a used camera at BH, they told me that it was CLEANED. Imagine that? So I was suspicious.

The D1X that's coming Friday is hardly used. Can't wait!!

Wow! Would you look at that?.....I love the warmth and the crisp sharpness and how it has this three dimensional feel to it. Do you get what I mean? Sometimes, its hard to put into words, that "Wow" factor. Thank you so much for sharing! That was awesome!!!

I now shoot with a D2X but miss my D1X dearly and may get another soon. I am concentrating on building a wireess speedlight setup at the moment though so it will be later this year. Here are a few of my old ones.

Out of those this one is my favorite. That has GOT to be one of the most amazing shots I have ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing...So beautiful, crisp and the colors are so rich! Wow!

Not my best either, but
In reply to Melissa007, Jul 19, 2006

They're all on CD's at this point. But I found these two...

I notice the colors on the Dunlin got changed by using Picture Viewer to change them to JPG's. It was an early Winter day, and he was hiding from a Peregrine sitting a hundred yards away. The water is full of ice crystals.

On this image of a Killdeer, the organge is natural, not the result of pp. It was a fall day and things happen...
