we're being supplied a crippled camera to provide Nikon with a tied camera-computer solution
I have refrained from posting on this issue, but I must say that most who complain about it don't own a D2x to know better. I wouldn't say crippled
, as the jpg's straight from the camera are as good as the nef's once converted to jpg. Ever since aquiring the D2x I have seen little need to shoot nef as the quality difference is no longer such a deciding factor.
