Great spec and I notice that Nikon has adopted the CMOS sensor instead as their usual universal choice of the CCD (Charge Coupled Device). Canons been with the CMOS for years and is now putting them into their compacts. Probably every manufacturer will adopt the CMOS especially now that Sony is investing huge sums of money into the CMOS sensor technology.

This is almost certainly the same CMOS previously used in the D2Xs. Which is good but not great. The CCD of the D200 was pretty good at High ISO low light noise compared to the D2Xs IME.

I thought you meant for carrying the camera around. I suspect now that you meant using it for nicking one (a D300)

No Gucci bag definitely for carrying it around in ,I have a 350D and the D300 is a full 1.5 inches wider, much too big.
My wife always carries her Nikon in her handbag despite me buying a lovelly leather case with spare battery & memory card holder for her birthday.

has this put us back in the same movie.?

My guess is that your wife needs a bigger handbag It is a bit of a nuisance for us women to carry a handbag plus a separate camera bag, so I can see where she's coming from

Re: Nikon D300 vs D200 - Comparison of features & spec

Thom Hogan has written an article about the new cameras here.


This paragraph in particular caught my eye:

Quote:

Overall, take a D200, which is a very nice handling camera, and stuff some key new components into it and you have something that's as fast as a D2x, has as many pixels as a D2x, has a better focus system than a D2x, writes to cards faster than a D2x, has cleaner high ISO results than a D2x, and, oh yes, sells for US$3200 less (at list prices, at street prices the difference is hundreds of dollars less). What's not to like about that?

I'll have two please.

Me too I need them for December. But have a quandry which I'll ask advice for elsewhere so as to not hijack this thread. Thon Hogan's article also allays fears about the buffer. As he says with UDMA cards buffer sizes don't need to be as large. I have never filled a buffer on one burst. BUT can very occassionally with a sequence of bursts in succession. I Have Extreme III cards and am dumping files at about 1FPS. If you use the compressed lossless NEF then you'll be recovering at 3fps. Huge downside is that I need to get a whole load of UDMA cards to take advantage of this. Sandisk don't seem to have them yet only Lexar of the big manufacturers.
