Very Good Condition with Battery, charger, strap , Video cable, USB cable, New Belkin Multipurpose Card Reader and Sigma APO MACRO NIKON FIT LENS
The new definition of professional quality
Nikon has integrated the best of its world-leading camera expertise with stunning advances in digital technologies to realize the only digital SLR camera truly equipped to meet the changing landscape of professional photography. The Nikon D2X blends for the first time the high levels of resolution commercial clients demand with class-leading levels of speed, handling and consistent colour. Workflow remains efficient and consistent, even under difficult conditions, yielding output of the finest quality with the detail to allow editing as the assignment demands.
The Nikon D2X, ready to expand the realm of digital photography.
New DX Format image sensor 12.4 million effective pixels
A new DX Format CMOS sensor captures 12.4 million effective pixels per image and delivers the high resolution and sharp detail needed for professional results. DX Format means the sensor is optimized for use with DX lenses, and is compatible with the full lineup of quality Nikkor lenses.
Nikon's new high-resolution image processing engine
Nikon's new generation system LSI greatly improves the precision of processing over previous schemes. With optimized distribution of analogue and digital white balance gain, another first, the new engine produces smoother gradations with consistent and smooth transitions, all with exceptionally pure colour rendition. Two new Adobe RGB colour modes further expand professional colour space options, while the new engine achieves beautiful reproduction of skin tones. Support for sYCC colour space produces JPEG files with a gamut wider than sRGB to fully exploit the output capabilities of the latest colour printers.
Precise white balance for accurate colour
The latest generation of Nikon's metering technology combines three separate sensors to achieve refined Auto White Balance and Auto Tone Control. Full manual white balance control options include white balance preset and the direct setting of Kelvin colour temperature.
Improved 3D-Color Matrix Metering II
An improved Matrix Metering system allows Nikon's acclaimed 1,005-pixel RGB Exposure/Colour Matrix Metering Sensor to better determine the position and size of shadow or highlight areas and achieve optimum exposure for each shot.
Instant power-up with an almost imperceptible 37ms shutter lag matches the class-leading response of the Nikon D2H, an astounding achievement at this resolution level.
High-speed continuous shooting
Optimized camera systems realize unprecedented continuous shooting at full 12.4 megapixel resolution of 5 fps for 15 consecutive NEF images. When the situation demands yet faster frame rates, the 6.8 megapixel High Speed Cropped mode allows 8 fps shooting for 26 NEF images.
Fast, precise 11-area AF system
Nikon's acclaimed Multi-CAM2000 AF Sensor features nine cross point sensors placed in the rule of thirds layout with an additional two at each side of the frame. Dynamic AF options are added when using Group Dynamic AF mode as well.
Faster data handling
The D2X can access CompactFlash" (CF) cards to read and write data faster than any of its predecessors. The transfer rate of the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface is also improved. Simultaneous recording of NEF and JPEG files helps maximize workflow efficiency.
Built to withstand the rigors of professional use
The D2X is built to perform reliably, from its lightweight and highly durable magnesium alloy body with enhanced sealing that protects against drops of water and dust, to its field-proven shutter unit.
Freedom to concentrate on the subject
The camera's large controls and buttons are positioned for intuitive control that frees the photographer to concentrate on composition. Regardless of camera orientation, operation remains consistently comfortable with virtually the same access to primary controls.
Unrivaled lithium-ion battery system
The D2X's compact rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers extended longevity and high energy capacity capable of approx. 2,000 shots per charge, with accurate real-time system status displays.
Large 2.5-inch LCD for easy info access
A new 2.5-inch LCD monitor features an all-digital interface for clear, flicker-free display of preview images and logically organized Shooting and Custom Settings menus. On-demand information includes an improved histogram and new RGB Histogram displays, as well as a chronological Recent Settings list.
Location data expands application possibilities
GPS units that comply with NMEA 0183 can be connected via the optional GPS cable (MC-35) to record data on latitude, longitude, and altitude, or to adjust the D2X's built-in World Time settings.
Creative in-camera effects
The new Multiple Exposure function creates a single image from up to 10 exposures. The Image Overlay function merges selected NEF files already stored on the CF memory card to create a new image file within the camera.
Support for Nikon's Creative Lighting System
Fully integrated with Nikon's exclusive i-TTL flash control and Advanced Wireless Lighting remote multiple-flash system supported by Nikon's SB-800 and SB-600 Speedlights, the D2X is also compatible with the SB-80DX and other Nikon Speedlights that use D-TTL flash control.
Versatile software supplied
PictureProject provides easy control over basic image management, editing and sharing. Features include Import Assistant, drag-and-drop organization, design layout templates and CD/DVD burning for distribution or archiving purposes.
Optimum performance at a full 12.4 megapixels
Quality means uncompromising performance while shooting at a full 12.4 million pixels with the high resolution and sharp detail needed for large prints and close crops. High-speed 4-channel independent data output from the new DX Format CMOS image sensor and new high-resolution image processing engine work seamlessly with optimized systems throughout to provide this unprecedented performance.
Faithful colour reproduction under challenging shooting conditions
Quality means all systems are optimized to deliver accurate colour, even when shooting under rapidly changing light. The D2X features advanced Auto White Balance and Auto Tone Control Systems refined with new algorithms to analyze the colours and lighting of the scene. Three different colour mode settings for Adobe RGB and two for sRGB expand colour rendering options for versatile workflow efficiency.
Accurate tones and smooth transitions with colour stability as never before
Quality means innovations that produce finer gradations and smoother transitions across the colour range. Behind this is a revolutionary new system that pre-conditions the colour channel independent data from the image sensor prior to A/D conversion which is combined with improved digital image processing algorithms that further raise the level of precision.

The camera has a list of features a mile long, but that alone doesn't make for a great camera. I need a camera to handle well, and this one handles superbly. At first sight, the controls, particularly those on the back, look daunting. Use it a few times, though and they switly become familiar. One niggle I have is the persistent Nikon habit of mounting the control for the metering mode on the side of the pentaprism. That aside the camera has an intuitive set of controls, logically arranged. It balances well in the hand, even with telephoto lenses attached. It isn't a lightweight camera and I found myself invesiting in an Optech strap fairly quickly.
Early models were criticised for producing "soft" images. It is quite possible to create such an image, but that's down to poor user technique allowing the image slightly to blur. This aside, the D2X produces clear, crisp images with accurate colour rendering and minimal noise [especially at lower ISO settings].
The camera is aimed squarely at the professional market, but priced at the very top end of the enthusiast range. This is not a camera for first time digital users-the sheer range of features make it a little complex for a first-timer. If you are an existing DSLR user looking to move up to a high quality camera, you will find this to be a high quality instrument that will satisfy your needs for the foreseeable future. In short-if in doubt, buy it. First timer? Try the Nikon D70s for a while before deciding on the D2X. Good luck!
Ok thats why I got one so whats it like? Well the Fuji isn't a small camera, bigger and more comfortable to use than teh Nikon D40/60 for me and it has a lot of external buttons/dials to help you swap setting on the fly without resorting to digging through menus. The D2x is bigger, heavier and has a lot more commands available at the touch of a button, ISO, White balance, Image quality, bracketing, flash control its all there on a button to change quickly without missing a shot. The build quality of this beast is tremendous, it does feel like it was made in the same production line as the Terminator. Its is that solid, with really good grippy rubber on the grips and a very ergonomic design that just wraps your hands around it. Really good balance goes along with the solid weight and comfort making it one of the nicest cameras to hold that I have ever used.Read more ›
Its lighter, faster and it seems they've got it absolutely right this time.
What a delightful camera - and i'm glad I didn't run away to Canon (would have been a costly experience).
How phantastic it feels, behaves and even the automatic white balance delivers very good results.
I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING THAT THE OTHERS HAVE SAID, AND WOULD ADD, THIS CAMERA WILL NEVER BE TO OLD OR OUT OF DATE.
THE LATER D2X,S AND THE D3 IM SURE ARE FANTASTIC CAMERAS, BUT THE D2X IS ONLY SHORT ON PIXELS COMPARED TO THEM, AND UNLESS YOU ARE PRINTING
PICTURES OR POSTERS ON A HUMUNGOUS SCALE, I DONT SEE THE POINT OF SPENDING HUGE SUMS OF MONEY FOR SUCH LITTLE REWARD.
IF YOU CAN BUY THIS CAMERA WITH LOW USE,GO FOR IT WITHOUT DELAY. REMEMBER ONE THING, JUST LIKE HIFI, WHEN YOU REACH A CERTAIN PRICE PLATEAU,
THERE IS NOT MUCH PERFORMANCE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANY OF THEM, JUST ONE UPMANSHIP AND PRESTIGE, AND MUST HAVE IT BECAUSE ITS THE LATEST.
YOU WILL SMILE WHEN IT ARRIVES, ITS HUGE AND HEAVY, BUILT LIKE A TIGER TANK, THE SHUTTER GOES BANG REASSURINGLY,AND YOU KNOW YOU GOT THE SHOT
AND WALK ON, THIS BODY IS A ROLLS ROYCE, AND WILL OUT LAST YOU. HAPPY HUNTING.
