Short Report: Nikon D2x
The top-of-the-line D-SLR from Nikon features 12 megapixels, blistering speed and a bigger, brighter LCD
One especially nice new feature on the D2x is a larger, brighter LCD monitor on the back of the camera. At 2.5 inches, it's one of the largest LCDs on any digital SLR, and that size makes surfing the array of camera menus easy. You'll appreciate the size the first time you want to experiment with one of the D2x's new modes, such as Multiple Exposure, which allows up to 10 exposures to be combined onto a single frame.
The D2x incorporates iTTL technology and works seamlessly with the latest Nikon portable flash models for creative control over the lighting. The camera is compatible with the Nikon accessory WiFi system, so it can be wirelessly tethered to a computer and controlled remotely. The WiFi system transmits the images for wireless downloads in conjunction with Nikon Capture 4 software.
The lines that define full-frame digital SLRs and sub-full-frame models are getting blurred. The D2x has the resolution and features that will keep the most discriminating pro satisfied. Estimated Street Price: $4,999.
