Nikon D2X and D2Hs DSLR
Firmware Update Coming


Based on the new MSRP's, with a difference of $700 CDN between the D2X and the D2Xs, the Nikon D2X represents a great value especially taking into account that with the coming firmware upgrade many of the features found in the D2Xs will be available to the D2X.

Nikon has announced that they will be releasing new firmware this fall for the Nikon D2X and the D2Hs professional digital SLR cameras that brings a number of the feature improvements incorporated in the new Nikon D2Xs to owners of the D2X and the Nikon D2Hs.

The main differences between the Nikon D2Xs and an updated D2X will be that the D2Xs will offer an enhanced 2.5" LCD monitor with a wide 170 degree viewing angle, improved viewfinder performance in high speed crop mode, and a USB cable lock feature. The question is if it is really worth it compared to the potential savings that can be realized by buying a D2X today and updating the fimware once available.
