D1X 4.9 5 7 7
Big improvement over the D1 This is an excellent camera, fast, accurate (some back-focus issues but expected). The trick to this camera like any pro camera is to shoot using RAW. The camera can utilize allot of Nikon brand lenses as well as aftermarket stuff. The flash on the D1X outputs more consistent results in comparison to the D1. However, it isn't anywhere near perfect. Not until iTTL of course. If you want the best you can get, use manual and practice allot. Nikon has made improvements with speed like I mentioned before, the transfer write speed from buffer to main memory is much better. Though this camera has a small buffer the transfer speed is able to compensate by quickly moving files to free up space, Nikon Engineers thank you for that. The colour accuracy is phenomenal as is the image quality. The pixel density in the vertical isn't much different than that of the D2X. Sharpness is limited by the aperture and amount of interference of the lens more so than the pixel count. The battery system actually seems to be improved slightly, since it has newer processor, and newer photosite chip or CCD, the camera uses less power by spending less time processing images. Noise with this camera is actually quite small, some say it is comparable to the D2H and better than the D2X. I personally will not agree with this or disagree as I want to test this theory myself. But I will say that I haven't had any problems with noise with this camera and the little noise it does put out gives it that very nice film quality that people speak about when mentioning the D1X. The grain however is smoother which is very nice. Overall this is an excellent camera. It shows exactly what the engineers at Nikon are able to do in less than two years. July 12, 2013
awesome colour i was surprised with the aceleration of D1x.. it was so greatful capture without shake image.. so comfortable in my hand.. and about the colour?? so awesome!! i love the colour very much..... i'm proud with this camera.... go on nikon!! November 4, 2012
Excellent machine in any ways. I was a Canon guy until I found out the quality of Nikon Cameras starting from D200 and D300. We use Nikons at our studio where I work, only one Canon, the original 5D... and 15 D1Xs, which now we are getting rid of because of they are used too long. So, I bought myself a D1x month ago from our studio, I was very impressed with the image quality, sharpness, focusing, built, and everything else... I bought another one as a backup. I was lucky, because I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for my purchases. I also purchased a 18-55 kit lens and a 50mm F1.8 lens to complete my set :) D1x is the best camera I owned. Before that I had Canon 40D, I sold it, and before that 30D, 350D and a Pentax going way back into mid 90s. NONE of them gave me the results D1x is giving me. If you don't mind to look at a dingy LCD screen in the back, most of the time shows very dark images, I recommend this camera for all uses :) November 26, 2011
Fantastic Camera, even a decade later! Pro-Grade Nikon equipment is built to last, and it does just that and so much more! I bought my Nikon D1x for the high speed normal flash sync of 1/500 second. This is the highest non-FP sync ever featured on a DSLR from any brand. This high speed is useful for sports photography with flash, portrait photography at wide apertures such as f/2.8 when using fill-flash, and many other applications as well. This is one of many great features of this camera body. The body accepts almost every Nikkor lens ever made (with the exception of the very old circular fisheye lenses which are incompatible with Nikon cameras not featuring Mirror Lock Up). This wide compatibility of all lenses from the brand new 24-105 f/4 Zoom Nikkor to the legendary 58mm f/1.2 Noct-Nikkor makes this camera excellent no matter what your style of photography. Focus speed is quick and precise on any traditional mechanical Nikkor-AF lens, and is lightning quick on every AF-S Nikkor AF lens as well. With 5.3 megapixels of resolution in JPG mode and 10 megapixels of resolution in RAW mode when used with Nikon's Capture NX software, this camera is dynamite in the studio and in the field for capturing all the stunning details one could want for product, landscape, portrait, and other photography styles. I use my Nikon D1x for portraits and events, but have used it for sports as well. It shines in all lights. Or should I say it captures all lights? With lightning quick autofocus speed, being built upon the proven Nikon F5 camera body, and giving professional photographers around the world a new standard by which to set their cameras, the Nikon D1x is one of my favorite cameras ever and I don't see that changing anytime soon. This review is written in 2010, nearly a decade after the Nikon D1x was released. It's resolution is still considered quite good for all but the largest prints, and AF speed is still superior to many SLR cameras on the market today. While we may not see this fantastic, rugged, proven camera in stores in its beautiful silver boxes again, we do find them with many professional photographers who still use and rely on the camera ever day. We also find them on the second-hand market, as this camera was wildly popular for several years after being introduced. Bottom Line: A continuation of Nikon's long history of producing the best cameras from any manufacturer for professionals and consumers alike, the Nikon D1x is a fantastic camera even a decade later and is highly recommended by this working professional.

Great images, great build quality I just recently bought this camera (used), as my first Nikon digital SLR. I had been buying older manual AI-S lenses to take video and stills on my Canon cameras via adapters. But I figured, why not see what they will do on original Nikon equipment? I've now bought several used Nikon AF and G lenses to take advantage of the AF features. I'm totally impressed with the color and metering in this model! I soon after bought a Fuji S5, but it wasn't such a great improvement over the D1X. I'm now thinking about getting a used D2X to improve the resolution over the D1X. But I love the dreamy quality of the D1X reduced resolution and slight pixel irregularity -- quite artistic! I'm also thinking of accentuating this effect by purchasing a D1H with lower pixel count. The D1X has been a terrific introduction into the Nikon world. October 6, 2010

I was thinking of buying a D1x as a backup, but I don’t have a firewire port in my PC (windows 7) or laptop (Vista)
Has any one tried file transfer using a firewire to usb cable and Nikon Transfer?

If so how did you set up the D1x and pc?

Answer: 
Instead of connecting the D1x to a computer via a Firewire to USB cable or adapter, we'd recommend using a good quality Compact Flash card reader. CF card readers that plug into USB ports are easy to find in retail stores and online.

I just got a used Nikon D1x, I was told that shooting in raw I had an option for 5mp or 10mp images. I seen here on the Nikon web site a file size of 4024 x 1324. I have never got a file larger than 3008 x 1960. How do I get the option of 4024 x 1324 and/or 10mp. I have posted a 3008 x 1960 sample image too.

Answer: 
You will only get a max of 3008x1960 as the camera is has 5.3 mp, it cannot go to 10mp, who ever told you it will was wrong. The only way to get a bigger file would be to upscale in something like Photoshop.

Answer: 
Wow, a slightly older camera. Either set the camera to shutter priority of manual using the 'mode' button at the front top right, behind the shutter button, I would guess. then you can adjust the (I think) back thumb dial to change the actual shutter speed.

Answer: 
The focus indicator flashes to warn that the camera is unable to focus using autofocus. The arrows will light up once to indicate this, however the dot in the center will illuminate to indicate that the camera can autofocus.
