I was looking over a review on the D1H in Dpreview the other day and Phil was showing the differences between the D1H and a Canon body. The Nikon was killing the Canon for noise at high ISO. I kept reading the report and wondered if I should buy a pre loved D1H. Here are the advantages. 1. The D1H has a 2.7 meg file on a CCD sensor that is the same size as all of Nikons, ie. 1.5 crop DX. 2. It shoots 5 frames per second with a 40 frame buffer. 3. Great auto white balance, according to Phil. 4. Takes compact flash cards, shooting RAW, I could get say, 1500 images on a 4 gig card? 5. Super fast post process! 6. Printing through Smugmug I could get maximum size prints, 40 x 30 inch (they have amazing upsampling). Negatives 1. Small file size is a no go for heavy cropping. 2. Poor battery life. 3. Different controls to my old D2h and now D2X.
