Nikon D2Xs review


Buffer Limitations

There is little to criticise, though it would be nice to have a bigger buffer memory – it doesn’t take long for the camera to fill up at the highest JPEG setting and slow down from 5fps to 1 or 2fps. In high-speed crop mode, it rattles off at a fair old pace, but again slows down after 20 secs or so. A few seconds’ rest gets the pace back up, though (tested using a San Disk Extreme III CF card). Bearing in mind the D2Hs has just 4MP and only offers 1fps more than the D2Xs, this high-speed crop mode makes the D2Xs a more versatile choice for fast shooters. And we do like the automatically cropped viewfinder.
