About Nikon D2H

The D2H(TM) professional digital SLR camera, is designed for photojournalists and sports/action photographers. Featuring the fastest full system performance in a digital SLR camera, the D2H sets a new standard in speed and accuracy while achieving exceptional image quality. Virtually every aspect of the camera's performance has been designed from the ground up to facilitate high-speed photography under demanding conditions. The D2H is capable of continuously shooting 8 frames per second and buffers up to a staggering 40 JPEG images.

It incorporates an all new 11-sensor autofocus system with 9 cross type sensors and versatile performance, a revolutionary new DX format 4.1 effective megapixel JFET imaging sensor called 'LBCAST' designed by Nikon and Wi-Fi capabilities for 802.11b wireless transmission of images. The D2H boasts an extensive new feature set that is designed for extreme performance at every level.

The camera is central to a complete new imaging system for photojournalism and sports/action photography that includes Nikon Capture(TM) 4.0 software, NikonView(TM) 6.1 software, i-TTL(TM) speedlight technology, WT-1 Wi-Fi transmitter accessory, and three exciting lenses including the world's first extreme wide-angle AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED lens and the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens, both designed exclusively for Nikon digital SLR cameras, and the world's first super-telephoto AF-S VR 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED lens with Nikon's advanced Vibratio n Reduction technology designed for Nikon's 35mm and Digital SLR models.

The D2H features a 4.1 effective megapixel (2484 X 1636) DX format JFET (Junction Field Effect Transistor) Imaging Sensor, called LBCAST (Lateral Buried Charge Accumulator and Sensing Transistor Array). The sensor reads 2 channels of data from each pixel -- while also handling brightness data in the same process to achieve maximum image reproduction speed.

A ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) design significantly reduces color artifacts and 'jaggies' on oblique lines, while helping improve overall image sharpness. Next generation signal processing algorithms improve automatic functions such as auto white balance, auto tone control and auto color correction to ensure optimal accuracy for each scene. A color-processing engine minimizes false colors, while maintaining superior color rendition, accuracy and consistency. A high signal-to-noise ratio combined with high-level image processing offers enhanced performance at high ISO settings.

The D2H is the world's most responsive digital SLR camera. It has virtually no start-up lag time, and is ready to shoot the instant it is turned on. Its shutter lag time is a mere 37ms -- the lowest among all digital cameras, and comparable to Nikon's legendary F5(TM) 35mm film SLR cameras
