The late 1990s and early 2000s were the infancy of professional digital photography, and as such, they brought with them some groundbreaking cameras that laid the foundations for those we know today. One such camera was the Nikon D1, and this neat video review takes a look back at the camera, its performance and features, and what made it such a pivotal body. 

Coming to you from Dino Bytes by Gordon Laing, this great video review takes a look at the Nikon D1 DSLR. First released in 1999, the D1 is ancient by camera technology standards, but at the time, it was a groundbreaking release, helping to establish Nikon as a serious competitor in the market. It featured a 2.7-megapixel CCD DX sensor paired with the F mount, a native ISO range of 200-1,600, continuous burst rate of 4.5 fps, and five focus areas. Strangely, the D1 used the NTSC color space, and like many early DSLRs, it was designed with a built-in grip despite using a crop sensor. Nonetheless he camera is generally regarded as one of those that helped to legitimize digital photography as a serious professional format and also put Kodak on notice. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Laing.
