I just got lucky. I have been looking for a decent D1 body for about 6 months. I just enjoy using Nikon's older pro cameras. I'm hoping to use it for UV photography. This sensor has good UV and IR sensitivity.

Well I just received my D1 from KEH this afternoon. It was marked EX for $139 and shipping was free this past weekend when I ordered it. I was a little anxious to see what condition the body was in because just about everything I saw on ebay looked really beat up.

When I opened the box I was amazed. I don't think the camera was ever used. The camera looked brand new, not a mark or scratch or rub or blemish. Even the rear LCD looked new and it even had new neck strap triangles with the plastic protectors. Even the battery charger, AC cable and even the 3rd party EN4 battery were new. The battery was fully charged and the time /date was accurate.

I just happened to have a 1GB IBM Microdrive so I put it in and formated it and then took a few photos. The photos look great. Good color, sharp and fairly low noise photos. I'm thrilled.

Here's one of the photos I took. No pp.
