A really great camera for its time which still is a bargain on the used market. The jpeg-output is good, especially compared to D100 and D70. Build quality is good aswell, except from the lcd which stands out a little bit. Great high-iso performance. Iso 1600 is fully useable even when light is not so good. Metering with old Ai lenses is pretty good. Something that you'll miss with D40,D50,D60,D70, D80, D90 and D100. Only D200 and the D1-series of today's cheap bodies will meter with many ...

Looking back from July 12, 2008, the D1H is hard to love. LCD, fading, untruthful colors, so small, appears to be overexposed while in fact not... Full-charged battery only useful for less than 100 shots if staying unused for a couple days. Heavy body. Only left to play with, if you are reluctant to sell it. Maybe you like to play with 4-MB raw file, here you are, one of few cameras with small raw files.

This review is based on a used D1H bought in 2007. First of all, I can't fault the construction: the D1H is a beautiful beast, very robust, and I couldn't imagine it failing. The features misses out on half a star because of the 'missing' sub-command dial on the vertical grip. Shooting RAW at ISO 1600 still yields excellent results from a seven-year old camera, much better than ISO 1600 from my D70s. I'm not keen on the JPGs from the D1H, but using a pro camera demands using pro features, ...

This camera will be around 7 years old in a few months but still is a good deal. AF speed is horrible fast. It beats my D40 into the ground in this term. 5fps are still good. 40 JPGEGs or 25 RAWs aren´t even matched my nowadays cameras. Build quality is superb. Something I expect from a Pro level camera. Build like a tank. Metering is good, it´s a little bit conservative to avoid blown out highlights. Easy to correct on the computer. IQ is excellent. 2,7MP are enough for most things, ...

With the viewfinder, his ability in low light, direct TIFF an B&W files, i am very pleased with the result ; without post-traitment . I love the construction, and the way i hold it . All in all, 700$ for this one and i year waranty . That's it !!! Problems: The white balance indoor must be measured, to be accurate. I can't download the files from firewire, as no disk is ...

Great and solid construction, Nikon's the first!! Autofocus and release are very very fast. Images are very fine and realist. The top for fotoreporters. Problems: Nothing.

I have used these cameras for press work for a couple of years now and after a recent trip for a service I was informed that one of them has shot over 450,000 images!!! Thats durability for you!! They are now reluctantly being retired in favour of a pair of D2Hs's I only hope they serve me as well. Problems: Battery life is the only killer really, once the batteries start to get towards a year old they need replacing and at £100 a battery replacing 3 or 4 a year isn't nice!

I Purchased my D1H in November of 2004 and have shot over 4000 pics. I'm extreamly happy with the quality of construction and the great quality of the pictures. If you only blow up to 8x10 you will not be able to beat this camera for Value. I have shot a wedding, several sporting events and Studio portraits and have been more then pleased.

I carry out a lot of outdoor cycling photography and needed a Pro Digital which would take the knocks, had a good buffer, but produced good quality shots across the ASA range which would be suitable for web,magazine,and also for my own enlargements. At this price range the D1H, at the moment, is the camera choice for me and many of the Pro photographers with whom I regularly come into contact with. Problems: Major problems arose when using a Sigma 70 200f2.8 HSM.I experienced autofocus ...

When you are in need for speed, this is your camera. If you reduce the number of frames to 4,5 per second you can make up to 50 shots continiously. The camera produces better colours compare to the D1. The transferrate with FiWi is much higher compare to the D1. Problems: As usual....the rubber, but after 100,000 pictures no shutter-failure yet.
