  1. Picked up a D2X on Friday for a great deal with an option for returning in 15 days. Today I shot a swim meet with it after spending hours researching the various setting for both the camera and Capture and PS.
    This camera requires one to be on there toes at all times but when done right delivers a great picture. I have to say that capture is the weak link of the deal it is so slow when working with the files. Well lots to learn here so here are a few from today.
    This kid set a team and pool record in the 15-18 Individual Medley, which consists of two laps of each of the four strokes

    Did you upgrade Capture to 4.3 it's not that slow anymore,mind you still slower than with the H, but I think you take the weakness and keep the X
    replied in the other forum on the pictures

    PS CS2 is faster than Capturebut I don't like the camera raw capture is still my favorite to work on shots with the X
  4. Oh I have ways to go figuring out this camera, thanks for the kind words
  5. Hans
    I too agree I liek to use capture for my RAW proccessing, thanks for the kind words I just might keep this camera :D 
  6. Mike,

    Nice job as usual but I wanted to know did you use the high crop feature for these?

    That's what I am talking about, you need to bring your bathing suit to view these images because you are going to feel like you are getting wet!

    Now if I could get half the quality out of my D2X I would be happy, but I am still trying.
  9. Thanks Mike I enjoy the swim season it si a lot of fun to shoot. I still have miles to go before I am comfortable with this camera

    You are welcome Mike, those deserve the praise.

    What lens did you use? Do you find yourself having to be more careful when handholding the D2X in comparison to other cameras?
  11. I was shooting the 70-200VR without the VR since it is not functioning and I need to send it in for repair, but wanted to wait till after swimming season.
    I find you have to be very careful about support when using the d2x it shows every little bit of motion blur. I shot these with the 70-200 mounted on a mono pod.
