It's funny how trends swap. It used to be that these forums had the news first, eventually filtering to more mainstream blogs such as Gizmodo and Engadget. Lately it seems entirely the reverse.

This is not the right place to discuss it. In short. I was only the olympusrumors owner. I gave the domain to another guy and linked to him for few days. Ended to support him one week before he has been banned (and with good reasons).

And now I am looking for a second backup camera for the Nikon d700. And video in a new Nikon D60 will be a good argument for shopping

It is hard to tell about the legitimacy of the device, but those shots are so staged. That guy could only be an actor/model with that ridiculous sash/belt thing on.

Notice how he holds the camera like he wants people to take his picture. Covering up the name plate, but clearly showing the drop down screen (everyone calls it swivel, but I have only seen it drop down away from the body).

Other sites have speculated that this is part of a commercial shoot.

I guess Asthon just lost his job to this wannabe pirate.

Such is life.

Yes, this is legit...
In reply to amonsul, Apr 6, 2009

I can't say where I heard it from originally (an official source) - but suffice it say, yes, the D60 replacement will have a different form of articulating sensor.

And let me tell you this now - live view is taken to a whole new plateau when you have an articulating sensor. I shoot extensively with both Nikon and Olympus DSLR's, yet I never even consider using live view with my Nikon models...only because of the lack of an articulating sensor.

When you use live view and couple its use with an articulating LCD, it makes for an entirely new experience. Heck, when I shoot with the likes of the Olympus E330 and E-3, I tend to use live view quite a bit - especially indoors, and being able to swivel around that articulating LCD makes getting into hard-to-access positions so much easier and fun!

You will like this new LCD - but I do have to laugh because whenever Olympus comes up with something (like they did with their internal pixel mapping, original dustbuster, live view, articulating LCD's on DSLR's, and now Art Filters), other brand users would downplay it all as "gimmicks." But something funny happened on the way to the forum (pun intended), the other brands soon followed suit and copied many of these "gimmicks," and of course were then praised for doing so. So ya gotta love it.

Now the only thing that is long overdue IMO (for all the other brands) is having a built-in pixel mapping function within your menu structure. Having to send in a camera to have the pixels remapped is a travesty and waste of money. But when you can access it in the camera's menu and remap the pixels in seconds...well, that is progress.

As always, great shooting!

Do you use liveview with any of the larger lenses? eg. 14-35 or 35-100? Also, i hope Nikon didnt sacrifice articulating for resolution.. the LCDs on the Olys are way below VGA.

Sony has had one for a while on their 350. They had the R1 as well.

I think you know this, but LCD (the term you use later in your post) and sensor aren't the same thing. Let's deal with one rumor at a time, if that's not asking too much. Even though, yes, an articulating sensor would be, like, extra-koool.

As for the merits for a swivel (notice: 'v', not 'f') LCD, yes that makes Liveview mildly more useful. Since I rarely use Liveview (for WB tweaking only), this falls into the "no news" bucket for me.

If this is indeed the case, I hope they also modified the shutter/mirror assembly so that the mirror doesn't have to cycle before taking a shot in live view. It's the main reason why I don't use live view on my D300.

It's amazing how they were able to photograph him from directly overhead, in a 360 degree circle (magic carpet maybe?) and he never saw them when he looked up. You really should want the camera the spy was using!

By the way, that location of the articulated node has an issue.
Can't use it for self portraits when the camera is on a tripod.

The good part though is that you can go from LCD protected mode to waist level holding very quickly and is a bit better for Macro than the Canon style.

Because is on a Nikon I finally hope this will open the gates for the articulated 'viewfinder' to gain mainstream acceptance on DSLRs.

Canon now will be forced to do it as well.

The Sony implementation is almost totally useless! It only tilts up for taking shots with the camera below you. With my old Canon G1, I never used it this way. Sometimes I'd hold the camera over my head, either to get a particular angle or to get over other people. I'd also use it often off to the side, or even pointing back at the lens to take self portraits.

Please let this be true! I've been watching the Lumix G1 for this feature, but would rather get a "real" DSLR with a lots of available lenses.

you can see that the photos are staged, weather the camera is real is a different matter
