Adorama pays top dollar for your used gear.



I use these stores. I can't vouch for adsbelow.

The Nikon D1 is the world's first practical DSLR. There were DSLRs long before the D1, but they had five-figure price tags and worked poorly.

The breakthrough of the D1 is that it's low price ($4,999) and high speed (4.5 FPS, 1/16,000 shutter and unlimited flash sync), use of common Compact Flash cards for storage and high resolution (2,000 x 1,312) made it a no-brainer for news photography.

It's weak points were that it had horrible highlight rendition; anything more than about a stop overexposed was completely blown-out, and that it's batteries always read dead and only gave a couple of hundred shots per charge. We had to carry two or three spare with us on any job, and the batteries were big and heavy. Worse, as batteries aged, a design flaw led to a problem where the camera seems to shoot, but records a black frame instead of the image we wanted!

It's fast. As a pro Nikon, the autofocus system just goes and goes fast.

The images suffer from poor color rendition. It usually takes some tweaking to get acceptable color rendition.

High ISOs are awful compared to modern DSLRs.

The D1 is tougher than any of the consumer cameras. The consumer cameras are anything other than the D1, D2, D3 and D4 series.

The D2HS is much faster (8 FPS vs. 4.5 FPS) and has much more durable and long-lived modern Li-Ion battery system. (The D1 uses a primitive Ni-MH system that's always dead or dieing.)

There is no MENU button.

TO set the clock, hold BKT and +/- at the same time for a few seconds until the year blinks. Set year with the main dial. Tap +/- to go to the other fields, and set them with the main dial.

TO check the time, just tap the BKT and +/- buttons then tap the +/- button to see the various fields

The clock runs on its own internal battery good for about 10 years.

To get to PLAY MENU, turn the top left dial to PLAY, then flip down the lower rear cover and then use the [L] button, as called out on the graphic on the flipped-down panel.

15 February 1999

Nikon announced it was working on "a new professional class, high-quality digital Single Lens Reflex Camera."

Here is the press release:

Tokyo, Japan(Nippon), 1999-02-15 ---
Nikon today announced that in response to the professional photography market's requirements, Nikon has been developing a new professional class, high-quality digital Single Lens Reflex Camera.

(Photo : Prototype (w / AI AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-105mm f3.5-4.5D IF))

Nikon has employed its long-time experience in designing professional cameras with newly developed digital imaging technology ; the result will be a unique, new camera.
The new camera will be smaller, lighter, will have higher performance for improved picture quality, and will have faster image signal processing and faster continuous picture taking.

Other key features include compatibility with Nikon's Interchangeable lens Nikkor System and enhanced durability.

Nikon is confident that this new digital SLR will offer a significant enhancement to the Nikon System, and the wide ranging needs of professional photographers.

The price objective for this new digital camera will make it accessible to a full range of professional customers and it is sure to appeal to advanced photo enthusiasts, as well.

The new camera is planned for sales beginning autumn 1999.


15 June 1999

Nikon announces the D1, the world's first practical DSLR. It is the first practical DSLR because it's the first DSLR with good enough image quality for print (2.7 MP), fast enough (4.5 FPS) and priced low enough ($5,000) and functional enough to be sensible to use daily as a primary camera. It's also the first DSLR made with Nikon electronics in a Nikon body, by Nikon.

It replaced film at forward-looking newspapers.

Forget about it today, regardless of price. For the same price you can get the greatly improved D1H or D1X, neither of which are worthwhile today either. The D1 series is confined to the dumpster of history (and collectors) because its battery system is a pain, and its menu structure requires interpreting numerical custom functions. It requires a cheat sheet to decipher.

Flash exposure performance is awful.

Get one only as a landmark camera to collect. The D1 is the landmark. The D1 is the camera that replaced film at newspapers.

The D1 is unique in having a 1/16,000 top shutter speed, since its shutter is also electronic. That's how it gets a 1/500 sync speed. If you use the PC sync terminal or a non-dedicated flash so the D1 doesn't know you've got a flash attached; sync goes all the way to 1/16,000!


Here is Nikon's press release:

Tokyo, Japan, June 15, 1999 — Nikon, long and widely recognized 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 Color 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 Color 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.
