nice. I am debating whether I want a d2hs or a d2x... I really think I will use it as my main and keep my d2h as a second body. I really don't like the d2x, cause its not a d2h ;). but I want to compare portrait shots as my mom's n70 that I used at iso 6 with portra film blew my d2h's portraits out of the water. I think a d2hs could be the solution, but I might want a d2x, cause while I have a passion for sports photography, most of my stuff is portraits that I get paid for.

great picture btw
Thanks.

You won't be upset if you get the D2x. It is a fantastic camera. The files are amazing in the amount of detail they capture. The down side, is the storage space and computer horsepower needed to deal with files of this size.

I'm not missing any detail in what I have now.

James,
now WAIT a minute - are you saying you are HAPPY with a camera you already HAVE ? AMAZING !!! (ha)
I agree with your findins; I like the results from my D2h (although I haven't fired but a thousand shots) and surprisingly, loved the results I got from the D1 !!! (wish I had it back, new owner refuses to give it back!)
I got fantastic shots at the Outer Banks in B&W, and Pelicans in flight with the D2h,
have fun

Ditto, my only issue atm, is the color tones of people. In film, people look a lot better than most of my digitan shots. d2x file didn't seem to help much. Maybe it was the fact I shot in iso 6 and loved the low noise so maybe the d2hs will help that. If all else fails hit up noise ninja lol.

James, you may have seen it in the exif, but the shot I sent you was at ISO 400. In studio conditions at ISO 100 the files are cleaner. Are you concerned with skin tones in digital? Just curious what it is that you are trying get out of the digital that you have not been able to get so far. Also you should note that my son (the one in the photo sent) is very very fair skinned. He is actually that pale. Don't know if that helps, perhaps my file was not a good one for this test. Hope it all works out for you.

In RAW, there is ABSOLUTELY no difference between the D2H and the D2Hs...no matter how BADLY you want there to be.

ah he is fair skinned that really helps. I am concerned with skin tones in digital. It just doesn't look as peachy. Iso 100 might be fun, but I don't know that I need it. If thats the issue neat image should do the trick on an iso 200 image

And therein lies the issue. It's nothing to do with digital A vs digital B vs film, it's an entirely subjective preference of the person shooting and processing the images.

If any one camera was "best" as rendering skintones every photographer shooting that genre of image would use that gear.

Woody is right on!! I would be more concerned with noise than tone!
