Nikon, long and widely recognised for their world-class professional SLR cameras, have artfully combined this experience with the very latest digital technology in creating the Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera D1, which features three basic concepts — ultrahigh image quality, superhigh speed and enhanced operability.

The D1 boasts optical and digital innovations such as improved overall picture quality, souped-up consecutive-shooting capabilities and broader compatibility, all packed into a lightweight and strong magnesium body. With high resistance to penetration by water drops, the D1 is fully equipped to satisfy the demands of professional and high-end amateur photographers.

The D1 features a large 23.7 x 15.6mm 2.74-megapixel CCD for ultrahigh-definition 2,012 x 1,324-pixel images. Superior results are further ensured by the infrared ray (IR)-cutting, ultra-thin lithium niobate (LiNB) Low-Pass Filter located directly in front of the CCD, and optimal signal processing delivered by Nikon’s original algorithm.

The D1 provides 3D Digital Matrix Image Control (3D Colour Matrix Metering, TTL White Balance and Tone Compensation) with a 1,005-pixel CCD for optimum results. The camera’s three intelligent exposure metering systems — 3D Colour Matrix, Centre-Weighted and Spot Metering; and three auto exposure modes — Programmed, Shutter-Priority and Aperture-Priority, together with exposure compensation and automatic bracketing functions, offer precise, comprehensive exposure control. 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash for D1 controlled by five-segment TTL Multi Sensor, possible with the new Speedlight SB-28DX, and versatile Flash sync modes — Front-Curtain Sync (normal sync), Red-Eye Reduction, Red-Eye Reduction with Slow Sync, Slow Sync and Rear-Curtain Sync, add to the D1’s versatility.

In order to give experienced users more control over quality, the D1 incorporates versatile image quality modes. Uncompressed Image provides users with three options: Raw (12-bit)*, TIFF YCbCr (8-bit)* and TIFF RGB (8-bit). Compressed Image offers JPEG-baseline-compressed approx. 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 and monochrome mode. Add to this the four-step Sensitivity Control (ISO equivalency 200, 400, 800, 1,600) provided.
* Optional software is needed to reproduce Raw or YCbCr-TIFF images; “Nikon Capture” for Raw images, “Nikon View DX” for YCbCr-TIFF images

The D1’s quick start and short shutter release time lag (approx. 0.058 sec. from the time the shutter release button is lightly pressed) give users the speed to capture once-elusive moments. Super-fast data processing made possible by the newly developed ASIC enables consecutive shooting at 4.5 fps for up to 21 shots. The D1 also boasts 1/16,000 sec. maximum shutter speed and 1/500 sec. sync speed.

The large, easy-to-view LCD monitor (2-in. low-temperature, polysilicon TFT) displays the captured images, menus and histogram indications.

Features that boost convenience include the high-speed data transfer capability provided by IEEE1394, the broad data compatibility furnished by the CompactFlash™ Card (Type I/II), and the NTSC/ PAL-selectable video output, optional Interchangeable Ni-MH Battery Pack EN-4 and dedicated Quick Charger MH-17/16 (compatible with MH-15 for F100). From Nikon’s critically acclaimed F5 and F100 SLR cameras, the D1 has inherited Custom Settings, which lets users create their own combination of 29 functions including the D1’s original features such as Tone Compensation and Edge Enhancer; two Command Dials; and remarkable durability.

Compatibility with Nikon system accessories, including over 80 F-mount Nikkor lenses, is another notable advantage of the D1, and is directed at the professional photographer with wide-ranging needs.

Nikon’s D1 — offering all this to deliver the quality, flexibility and operability that experienced users demand.
