I used to own a D70, which was my first DSLR, and was very happy with it. My D70 was too slow for action photography and in low light conditions. So, I sold it (40,000 clicks in one year) and bought a D2Hs 10 weeks ago. My brand new D2Hs has so far more than 15,000 clicks and I'm still impressed by its phenomenal AF speed (even in low light), its lightning fast response and its saturated colors (especially at high ISO). I just picked up my first large poster (A1 size or 23x35") 3 days ago : ...

Using the D2Hs to photograph Motorcycle Speedway it delivers the goods and it's so easy to use. It is great for the work I do, and as it's only 4Mp I can turn the RAW pics around quickly to the magazines. It is responsive and well built, and with the 800 Speedlight it is great in all light conditions. Problems: None so far

This is not your ordinary camera, in the hands of a Pro you can do wonders. In the hands of a amateur you will hear lots of complaints. It seems that everyone is obsessed with megapixels, I shoot 65 weddings a year and we have covered 34 Countries and I was a user of the D1h and D1x and the D1h was my favorite. Then I got 3 more D2H and they were fantastic but I was not happy with the jpegs but the raw files made a big difference. The best feature was the battery, I avarage 3500 images on one ...

As the owner of a D2H, I was happy when my paper purchased a D2Hs. The color saturation is greater than my D2H but I am not sure that is always a good thing. For many images I prefer the look and saturation of my D2H but it is very subjective. The only real difference (for me) was a check of the noise reduction capability of the D2Hs. While it is good, IMO it is not much different than what I am able to perform in Photoshop's Noise filter with a couple of clicks. But, like my D2H, its build ...

I purchased my D2Hs approximately 6 months ago. The D2Hs is a superb camera overall. The build quality and handling is excellent. It is extremely versatile and the picture quality is incredible, especially when coupled with professional Nikkor lenses. Although it is targeted for sports and action shooting, it is equally capable for landscape and portrait work. The 8fps high-speed shooting mode is incredible! Focusing is super fast and accurate, and the auto white balance appears dead ...

I use this camera for wedding photography, which is my full time profession. I shoot 40-50 weddings per year, and work in a "reportage" style. The first comment I usually get when I say what I use it for, is "is the 4mp enough?". A valid question, but In my opinion, with the sizes I print at (very seldom bigger than 12x18") the resultion is acceptable. Yes, at this size, you would proably see the difference between this and a D2x, but that doesn't mean the image quality is unacceptable - to ...

Overall very impressive. This is my first digital camera of any kind -- as a newspaper reporter/photographer I was still on film when I decided on a career change and grad school set my plans back a bit! This is actually a replacement for a defective D2H (all kinds of problems affecting the AF motor and image playback, then an unfinished repair followed by a botched repair involving damage to the camera, and also the emergence of a clump of red hot pixels, at which point Nikon threw in the ...

Fantastic product ! I upgrade from a D2h. I don't need 12Mpix. 4Mpix are ok, and post-processing time are slower. - Automatic WB was improved from D2h. - High ISO are far better. I've done 1600 iso tests with ultra low ambient light, and results where great. - All operations are done instantly. - The display is now usefull (quality and 4 histo) HIGHLY recommended ! Problems: From time to time, when shooting at 4+ img/s in CS mode, the first frame is black or very very dark.
