Nikon D2H User Reviews

Announced Jul 22, 2003 •
4 megapixels | 2.5 screen | APS-C sensor

This is the second part of my little project to review "old" generations of the Nikon legacy cameras and how they are doing in 2017. Partly inspired by Nikon's 100th Anniversary. So far, I have taken the D1H out for a spin. Up next after this is the "old" D800. This little project was actually kind of refreshing. It gave me the chance to take out the older cameras that were collecting dust and enjoy "photography" without worrying if I am using the latest and greatest piece of equipment. On to ...

It has been over four years since my last entry on the D2H cameras. I loved it then and still have two bodies that are my main business cameras. In early 2008 with the demise of the newspaper industry, I returned to a previous career after 10 years (as a freelancer, contract, &, finally, staffer) with a little free weekly that got hit hard by the recession. BUT my D2H cameras are still the love of my photographic passions. While the D3 (& later) gives more megapixels & a higher ISO range, I ...

I just bought a used d2h and the pictures it produces are wonderful. I love the colors, and the smoothness reminds me of film. In my opinion this is the best digital camera Nikon has built. It's a keeper! Problems: none.

I purchased a used D2H, for cheap, earlier in the year along with a $1000 Nikon AF-I 300 2.8 lens (hard to pass up!) for baseball season and worked great. Love the colors and fast focus. A little bit noisy at the higher ISOs (1250, 1600) but dead on exposure helps with that somewhat. Problems: AWB can be a little off at times but in open sun, its no problem. I dislike the low 1/250 flash sync.

This solid camera has already completed 4 year with me and has proved to be one of the best cameras I have ever owned. Problems: None so far except the metering issue.

I've owned this camera for a few years. I like this camera, especially the rapid fire frame rate -- just wonderful for shooting events involving racing, e.g. dog sled racing, etc. The camera's design, layout, and ergonomics are superb. Don't be frightened by "only" 4 megabytes, as the images from this camera produce beautiful prints. My camera has seen extended use it in all sorts of conditions including extreme cold -- -50F here in the Arctic and blistering heat -- +120F in the desert ...

Jumping from a D1 to a D2H was great, I love the 4 megapixel over the 2.75 one of the D1 (still a great camera) I shoot landscape's and while I am about to purchase a D2Xs the D2H has been a GREAT camera. I've printed a cropped image to 36" wide x 12.5" high on my Epson R2400 printer. The results are awesome. For anyone looking to purchase used, they are a great camera (even for long exposure night shots) Check out my images on Flickr flickr.com/photos/sgrunberger Problems: Only thing I've ...

I have two of these cameras, but will post once. For it's intended use, this is a great camera. For your average sports photographer, this camera will not dissapoint. It focusses in the worst conditions imaginable with accuracy. It has no shutter lag at all and will allow you to learn timing of your sport. I have prints as large as 18x24 from the 4.1mp sensor with no problems. This camera also uses the iTTL flash to make the Nikon CLS system the easy to use and most reliable exposure in ...

This camera produces consistant quality images despite the 4.1mp size, and has a very very fast work rate. the battery is amazing and lasts forever. PR usage for desktop publishing and magazines up to A4 repro is fine, studio model shoots with A4 prints, events with printing on the night 7x5 and 10x8 - great. very happy would like the D2x for occasional larger image size. but speed of D2H is amazing. Problems: The wifi using peer to peer- ie directly linking to computor for instant use of ...
