Overview

Description by Nikon:

CAMERA DISCONTINUED

12.4 (effective) megapixel Nikon DX format CMOS Sensor: The CMOS image sensor provides both high image quality and high-speed performance at up to 5 fps. And despite the extremely high resolution achieved by 12.4 effective megapixels, image data is recorded at exceptionally high speed through use of a 4-channel output method.

Next Generation Color Reproduction: Nikon's most powerful image processing to date delivers color images that are both natural and accurate, delivering true-to-life color reproduction and realistic transitions.

Powerful image processing engine designed to produce high-quality images: Significantly larger image files are demanded by the industry today. But with Nikon, high image quality is so much more than a matter of megapixels. In fact, a plethora of other high-level technologies are required to achieve the outstandingly high level of performance that today?s photographers need, and these are exactly what the D2Xs provides

High-Speed Crop function with NEW automatic mask feature: Continuous shooting at a rapid 8 frames per second is possible when using the High-Speed Crop mode that records the central portion of the frame at 6.8 megapixel resolution. What?s more, the viewfinder has been enhanced to provide an automatic mask that actives when the HSC mode is set for simpler accuracy in composition.

1,005-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering II: Nikon's exclusive light metering technology intelligently evaluates numerous elements beyond simple brightness and compares its findings against an onboard database of reference images. Complex and otherwise time-consuming exposures are determined instantly, resulting in consistent and dependable digital imaging exposures.Advantages of 3D Color Matrix Metering II are now provided in the High-Speed Crop Mode, while also optimizing the areas calculated for using Center-weighted metering and i-TTL Flash Control.
