Nikon Announces the D2x

Article Summary:

Nikon today announced the long-awaited D2x professional digital SLR camera.  This camera captures twice as many megapixels as the body that it replaces, using the same DX format sensor size.  Some of the important specs for underwater shooters:

12.4 Megpixels CMOS
ISO 100 - 800
iTTL and dTTL compatible
Shutter flash sync at 1/250th with high speed iTTL sync
High (12.4) and low (6.8 megapixel) resolution shooting modes
Enhanced Wifi features

Excellent news for underwater shooters is that a number of housing manufacturers have already developed housings for the Nikon D2h which shares the same body as the D2x so hopefully housings will be available soon.
