Reader Reviews: User Reviews of Nikon Cameras

User Rating 4 Star Rating

By John Switzer

Name of product: 

Nikon D1X DSLR

Approximate date of purchase: 

Early 2007

My Review 

It is a superb system Digital SLR. It has been superceded, but not surpassed. It does take a bit of study to really use it correctly, but when you do, wow! It was a move 'up' from a Nikon 5700; they are world's apart in approach, but the D1X still maintained the quality of camera and the support I had come to expect.

Camera "pros" 

Flexibility; uses most Nikon F series film lenses; quality; Nikon service support.

Camera "cons" 

Just a tad heavy; does take some time to learn to use.
