Early full frame camera

12 Megapixel Full frame
I do not own this camera, but I have access to it at my workplace. Very robust camera. The shutter count is not even 10'000 although it is more than 10 years old. This is a typical use if the owner is not taking it around al the time, and perhaps 5% of the lifetime of such a camera.

Price

This camera is no longer manufactured, so your only chance is to look for it used. For this project when I was looking for a used camera to buy, I had a hard time not buying another one. They can be had for as little as 250, a ridiculously good value.

The Good

  • Excellent price/performance
  • This camera is what I consider just right for just about anything.
  • Very robust built and feel
  • Can use most lenses made by Nikon

The problems

  • No video
  • Getting a bit older, after a while electronics/batteries will start failing
  • Heavier camera
