Nikon's D1X and the D1H professional digital SLR cameras established a new benchmark in digital photography. Both models include advanced capabilities for color reproduction, white balance and precision exposure control. The D1X, featuring a 5.47 megapixel CCD and advanced image processing, is optimized for superior image quality and higher resolution, while the D1H is optimized for action photography, with continuous shooting up to five (5) frames per second, making it the fastest and most action-oriented pro digital SLR available today. The models evolved from Nikon's highly successful D1 Professional Digital SLR Camera, which since its introduction in June 1999, has set a new standard for image quality, speed, ergonomics and performance in digital imaging.
Nikon D1X - Optimized For High Image Sharpness. The D1X features a 5.47 megapixel CCD and powerful algorithm set. Through interpolation it can produce 8-bit 17.7-megabyte TIFF files, and with the next Nikon Capture Version Software it will produce 16-bit 34.4-megabyte TIFF files. The D1X is designed for professionals requiring high image quality for a wide range of applications, including high-tech, scientific, pre-press, advertising, graphic arts, education, commercial and other photography that requires extremely high detail.
