12.4 effective-megapixel Nikon DX format CMOS sensor: The CMOS image sensor provides both high image quality and high-speed performance at up to 5 fps. And despite the extremely high resolution achieved by 12.4 effective-megapixels, image data is recorded at exceptionally high speed through use of a 4-channel output method.

Powerful image processing engine designed to produce high-quality images: Significantly higher quality images are a prerequisite today. But with Nikon, high image quality is so much more than just megapixels. In fact, there's a plethora of other high-level technologies required to achieve outstandingly high levels of performance that today’s photographers need which is exactly what the D2X provides.

1,005-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering II: Nikon's exclusive light metering technology intelligently evaluates numerous elements beyond simple brightness and compares its findings against an onboard database of reference images. Complex and otherwise time-consuming, exposures are determined instantly, resulting in consistent and dependable digital imaging exposures. The advantages of 3D Color Matrix Metering II are provided in the high-speed crop function which also optimizes the areas calculated for using center-weighted metering and i-TTL flash control.

11-area AF system with 9 cross-type AF sensors: Updated to perform even faster and with greater precision in the D2Xs, the 11-area AF system employs Nikon's advanced Multi-CAM 2000 AF Sensor Module. Of these 11 widely spread AF sensors, 9 are cross-type sensors positioned in the logical rule-of-thirds array. All 9 cross-type sensors remain active when using high-speed crop mode.

Image overlay and multiple exposure: The multiple exposure function creates a single image from up to 10 exposures. The D2X also offers an image overlay function that merges selected RAW (NEF) files already stored on the CF card to create a new image file within the camera.

Creative in-camera trimming: A newly added feature, in-camera trimming, allows RAW, TIFF and JPEG images taken using the D2X to be trimmed within the camera producing images of reduced display sizes ranging from 640 x 480 to 2560 x 1920 pixels.

Lithium-ion battery system with even greater power: The new EN-EL4a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, retains the same form, but features significantly increased capacity that delivers enough power for up to 3,400 shots per charge. The system’s real-time status display gives accurate feedback on the percentage of remaining battery charge, the number of shots taken since the last charge, the overall status of service life as well as notification when calibration is recommended.

GPS support: With the optional MC-35 GPS adapter cord, location information such as latitude, longitude, altitude and heading (direction) can be transferred from a GPS device and then recorded along with the shooting data for each image.

Wireless support with the Wireless Transmitter WT-2/2A: The D2X supports the new high-speed, IEEE802.11b/g compatible Wireless Transmitter WT-2A with enhanced image transfer protocols and increased security. The WT-2A additionally supports the new PTP/IP protocol. And when used with optional Camera Control Pro software, wireless camera control is possible.

Next generation color reproduction: Nikon’s most powerful image processing to-date delivers color images that are both natural and accurate, delivering true-to-life color reproduction and realistic transitions.

High-speed crop function with new automatic mask feature: Continuous shooting at a rapid 8 frames per second is possible when using the high-speed crop mode that records the central portion of the frame at 6.8-megapixel resolution. What’s more, the viewfinder has been enhanced to provide an automatic mask that is activated when the HSC mode is set for simpler accuracy in composition.

Sharp, clear 2.5-inch TFT LCD display with a 170-degree wide-angle viewing: The D2X incorporates a large 2.5-inch 230,000-dot, high-resolution LCD monitor display with an ultra-wide 170-degree viewing angle for clearer viewing. It also offers larger type fonts that improve access to color-coded menus.

Broad color mode options: Adobe RGB profile (color mode I and II), as well as the option of the sRGB profile enables photographers to set the best color mode based on their shooting needs. Additionally, a new black and white capture mode is now available.

World's fastest response with a 37ms shutter release time: Instant startup and a class-leading shutter release time lag of a mere 37 milliseconds combined with optimized systems throughout maximizing all-round performance, delivers the response needed to handle even the most challenging professional assignments.

Full integration into Nikon’s Creative Lighting System: When used in combination with SB-800, SB-600 or SB-R200 Speedlights, the D2X supports Nikon’s Creative Lighting System with high-precision flash photography using i-TTL flash control, giving unlimited creativity through Advanced Wireless Lighting and functions such as FV Lock and Auto FP High-Speed Sync.

Support for Capture NX: Capture NX offers the exciting potential for Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) files, JPEG and TIFF images. Refined through revolutionary U-Point technology, it greatly simplifies the selection of objects, colors and areas supporting highly accurate alterations to a myriad of image elements while also preserving the integrity of the original image data.

Image authentication to protect the integrity of valuable data: Nikon’s new image authentication function offers image authentication for digital image files. Indication of whether the actual image has been tampered with is provided along with any changes that have been made to date and GPS information. (Additional software is required.)

The King of the Seas!!! This camera is excellent I have it for 5 years and is the best investment of all gives you amazing battery life, plus your seal is ideal, we have wet sea waves taking pictures of whales and nothing happens just continues to work bursts of 8fps without problems, the ideal companion 70-200mm VR the best in its class. Thanks Nikon for giving me the best pictures of whales in my life. I hope my D4 very soon! January 14, 2012
Great body I've had this body ever since it came out and has never given me a problem. As a wildlife photographer it doesn't get babyed. From mud, heat, sand, snow, even juice from a ham that got spilled on it. It just keeps going. April 14, 2011
Not for the faint of heart! This is definately a Pro user DSLR. Features are countless and ease of operation is sublime.Handling and controls well placed and within view. Focusing is extremely fast and precise, works best with Nikon series AF lens. Battery power is more than efficient to provide hours of shooting at high speeds. FPS are excellent even at 800 ISO in limited lighting conditions. Option to shoot at 100 ISO is a plus on bright days and color renditions are superb giving you 35mm quality prints beyond 20"x14" when shooting in RAW . Camera handles very well under extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Start up is blazing fast which allows user to shoot instantly. I will soon be looking forward to the purchase of my D3S, but in the meantime this camera is above and beyond for what any semi pro or pro consumer needs it to do. This is a high quality built, user friendly camera that I would recommend to any one in the field. Thanks, Nikon! July 13, 2010

Answer: 
Please see Custom setting C5 (Monitor Off Delay) in the D2Xs camera custom setting menu. You have the option to chose how long the monitor stays on for when no button is pressed.

Answer: 
The EN-EL4 and EL-EL4a are the two types of batteries that are recommended for the D2Xs. The EN-EL4a last longer than the EN-EL4. Nikon cannot recommend any other battery to be use in the D2Xs.
