Thanks Frank,UncleFrank said:James Grove seems to have done quite a bit of comparision testing between the d2h and d2hs. Here's a link to his DPR profile, so you can pick through his archives.
I need to add my own note here, it became clear to me that while i was doing these tests and posting the results on the DP forum, that some users were wanting to proove that the images were the same, this is clearly not the case, sure if i modge with all the settings you can get similar results, but the images from the D2hs are far superior to that the of the D2h IMHO having owned both cameras, the metering on the d2hs is much better, the auto wb has been dramtically improved and the noise is almost gone even at 1000 ISO (yes it may be software at work in the camera but this is the same on the D2X)jklofft said:And at least from what I saw, there was improvement in noise in the jpegs, but shooting NEF and using NeatImage, the two images are essentially the same.
On its way it a bit, via you send it. Please keep in mind, that these are very rough examples and are straight out of the camera.Jonathan F. said:

I would assume you can open JPG with no problem in PS CS. Correct?
ACR = Adobe Camera RawCalfee said:Thanks James. What is ACR?? I have only used PS CS. I thought that PS CS (ot the new version CS2) will open the NEF files from the D2hs and D2X.
BTW, do you think that JPG fine images straight out of the camera are good enough to use when I shooting an event where the image count is pretty high and the time to process isn't that much?
IMHO yes it does work better. Its a tough call to decide to move from a D2h to a D2hs, i dont think many people will be doing it. But as a second body its a great addition if you already won a D2h.Calfee said:Thanks. I shoot misc sporting events and have been hoping the the D2Hs JPG files will be better on the D2Hs versus my D2H. I am looking for improvements in color, Auto WB, and noise. From the sound of it, you think this camera will fit the bill. Correct?
My best suggestion is that your hire a D2hs and see if its fits your needs, as my D2h was replaced by a D2hs due to continued problems i had with my D2h. If it was me, i would rent one and see if i liked it,Calfee said:Thanks again. I have a D2H (about 6 months old), and I also bought a second D2H from B&H just before they went out of stock (but have not even opened the box b/c I'm not sure I will keep it). This second camera only cost me $1,999. That said, the D2Hs is about $1200-$1400 more than the new D2H I have, and I am wondering if the D2Hs is really worth the extra money. What do you think?
