Nikon D2Hs review
Aug 15, 2009

Bought new in 2008 for a sensible price this lump of magnesium alloy does
everything I expected of it and more. Music events, motorsport, macro. I can
happily use iso 1000-1250 all day. The compact files mean I now shoot everything
in RAW.

Follow this Flickr link for D2Hs image at iso3200

Then (virtually) the same image at 1250

original RAW image processed in capture nx 1.3.5 noise reduction set to 0

Focuses well even with an ancient 1993 AF 180/2.8 Nikkor

Problems:

Out of box Capture NX 1.3.1 originally unstable on Mac OS 10.5
Solved by downloading the 1.3.5 update free from Nikon website
