Nikon D2X | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
Someone who possesses the Nikon D2X will want to make a lot of images in the first place. You have to be able to store an extensive amount of photos and the battery has to have stamina. Nothing more annoying than having to change things all the time. We are getting spoiled nowadays. The choice for a CompactFlash memory card or Microdrive is a logical one. The battery chosen is a strong powerful Lithium Ion battery which is also a logical choice.

SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash memory cards
CompactFlash offers you the choice from an extensive selection of all sorts and types of cards. The files produced by the D2X are large and so it is wise to purchase a card with sufficient capacity. A card with a capacity of at least 1GB should do it, but it might be even better to purchase a 2GB card. The D2X supports memory cards with capacities up to 4 and 8GB. And while at it, purchase a fast card such as the SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash memory cards. The Nikon D2X digital reflex camera does use the speed possibilities offered by such a fast memory card in an excellent way. The table below shows how many images fit on a 1GB memory card. (L = Large, M = Medium, S = Small.)

Nikon D2X dSLR buffer
Before the digital photos are stored on the flash memory card they are processed in the buffer first. The buffer of the Nikon D2X dSLR is impressively large. No less than 22 full JPEG images fit in it, in High-speed crop the amount increases to 35. In RAW format it becomes 17 and respectively 29 images. If you shoot in RAW+JPEG, still some 16/28 images can be stored in the buffer and the same goes for working in TIFF. Emptying the buffer is fast; in about 40 seconds the whole buffer is emptied when working in RAW and in JPEG all pictures are written onto the card in 15 seconds. We do talk about considerable files here.

Nikon D2X digital reflex camera - Lithium Ion battery
To provide the Nikon D2X with energy a powerful Lithium Ion battery is used. It's a compact battery with a long life. I was able to take many hundreds of images before the battery gave in. The only thing is that even with a fully loaded battery you can't clean the sensor; you have to connect the camera to the electric mains by means of an adapter and that adapter is not standard delivered with the camera.
