The new D2Hs(TM) professional digital SLR camera incorporates several new enhancements & features. Designed for photojournalists & sports/action photographers, D2Hs integrates the best technologies from its predecessors with an array of exclusive new innovations that deliver the speed, response & handling required for action photography.
The range of new features & enhancements in the D2Hs are based on extensive research & feedback from professional photographers around the world. An all-new image processing engine in the camera produces images with higher quality, finer gradations & lower noise, while a newly refined exposure metering system improves on Nikon's hallmark 3D Color Matrix technology.
The D2Hs Auto White Balance & auto focusing systems have been fine tuned to deliver precise, accurate results & an enhanced buffer now offers continuous shooting at 8 frames per second for up to 50 consecutive shots (JPEG, FINE).
Photographers will appreciate the seamless design, transition and workflow between the D2X and the new D2Hs, allowing them to quickly switch between the two best-of-breed camera bodies, as dictated by the situation they need to photograph.
In addition to Nikon's exclusive 4.1 megapixel DX format JFET image sensor LBCAST (Lateral Buried Charge Accumulator and Sensing Transistor array), the D2Hs features the following new technologies and enhancements:
• Advanced new image processing engine produces high quality images
• High-speed continuous shooting at 8 fps for up to 50 consecutive shots

Nikon Capture 4's Remote Camera Control function can control most shooting settings and trigger the camera's shutter release remotely, either connected via the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface, or using the optional Wireless Transmitter WT-2/2A. (PTP/IP wireless camera control requires Windows XP or Mac OS X.)
As part of Nikon's Total Imaging System, the D2Hs is compatible with Nikon's growing family of digital-exclusive DX Nikkor lenses as well as the lineup of high-quality Nikkor AF lenses.
When used with the SB-800 or SB-600 Speedlights, the D2Hs maximizes the potential of Nikon's Creative Lighting System with high precision flash performance, including i-TTL flash control and support for Nikon's Advanced Wireless Lighting system.

Perfect camera for sports and photojournalism, even though it has around 4.1 MP it still delivers top of the line quality with superior speed.
Small file size is great. Almost perfect with flash. Image quality is great and compares well to other DSLRs
This is a great, if somewhat older Nikon model. The Nikon refurbish was professionally done. Camera looks and operates like new.
This is a great camera, but the one I got referbished from Nikon was really bad. The rubber was coming off. The sensor was very dirty. It would not focus correctly with my AFS lenses. It had almost 30,0000 actuations.
