The Nikon D1H Full-Frame Images Quality Review

The D1H were initially declared back in Feb 2001, at the time it was exciting to find out that Nikon were improving the D1 not to one design but two. The D1x has a six mega-pixel indicator but because of the big dimension its picture information files is restricted to 3 supports per second for an optimum of 9 pictures. The D1H is depending on the unique 2.74 mega-pixel D1 indicator but has a far bigger information shield and structure amount capability.

Nikon D1H Body And Design

The powerful mineral magnesium situation makes the D1H experience far more firm and effective than any movie digicam, keep in mind there’s no big entrance at the back to fill the film. The digicam is well healthy and smartly developed, all the manages are exactly where they should be, a first time customer or Nikon movie SLR customer can get the D1H and instantly experience at home. If you couldn’t know better you’d be pardoned for considering it was designed from a powerful part of steel, they weigh about in at a significant (yet reassuring) 1.1 kg (2.5 lbs), and that’s without the (large) battery power and a lens.
