Nikon D2X announcement clippings

Since the launch of the D1 series in 1999, all Nikon digital SLR cameras from consumer-class to professional models, have utilized Nikon DX-format image sensors of the same size. Following in the footsteps of the D2H, the D2X provides the same performance and design innovations combined with a Nikon DX-format image sensor that delivers a higher pixel-count. Improved image quality is achieved by incorporating a new CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) image sensor with an effective pixel-count of 12.4 megapixels.

Added to this, shooting speed in continuous shooting mode has been increased by using a 4-channel output method with the improvement of the speed of transferring image data from the image sensor to a memory card. This improvement allows the D2X to capture 12.4 megapixel JPEG images or RAW image at a rate of 5 frames per second in continuous shooting mode. Continuous shooting at a rate of up to 8 frames per second is possible by using a High Speed Cropped function that crops the center of an image at 6.8 megapixel resolution.

In addition to the new dual-area image sensor, all image-processing functions have been either newly developed or refined. Tone characteristics have been improved with both analog and digital processing for optimum colour distribution. Moreover, the enhanced accuracy of digital processing in the ASIC provides smoother shading in gradual colour changes, important for subjects such as a blue sky with very subtle tone changes within the blue range.

The D2X also supports the sYCC colour profile found in many of the latest printers. This means that the wider range of colours can be reproduced for printing JPEG data than the conventional colour profile. Professional photographers will also appreciate the ability to select Adobe RGB in any of the three colour modes. With its broader range of colours, the Adobe RGB profile is ideal for every stage of the professional photographer's workflow and compliments the Nikon Electronic Format file. The combination of image-processing technologies and 3D-Colour Matrix Metering II improved with new algorithms found in the D2X makes it possible to capture 12.4-megapixel images that will fulfill photographers' needs for larger files that are rich in detail, colour and smooth tone range.
