Background and Identification
The Nikon D1X is a digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) made by Nikon Corporation and introduced on February 5, 2001. The D1H and D1X models were released as the successors of the Nikon D1.
The D1X model features a higher resolution with a 4,024 by 1,324-pixel sensor with 5.3 effective megapixels. The sensor produces a 3,008 by 1,960 pixel interpolated image output. It features continuous shooting of three frames per second for up to 21 consecutive photographs. Both the D1H and D1X models use the sRBG/AdobeRGB color spaces, an improvement over the D1 model. The resolution of the D1X is identical to the D1H vertically, providing a 25-percent overall improvement over the D1H and D1 models.
The Nikon D1X camera includes a 16 by 24 mm charge-coupled device (CCD) with a 1.5-times effective focal length multiplier. Users can attach all Nikon manual and autofocus lenses except ultra-wide lenses and fisheye lenses that require mirror lock-up and external finders. The D1X model includes the Nikon F-mount for lenses.
The Nikon D1X model includes the model name “D1X” in the upper right-hand corner of the camera’s front face. The name “Nikon” is printed in white font in the top center of the camera’s front face.
