Aur: The Nikon D5500, a revolutionary camera, everything you know and love, in the same body. We heard your suggestions, and we changed absolutely nothing.
Myself I have close to a hundred thousand photos taken with various cameras over the years. If I look through them all it is not a problem to spot where they were taken, but it would be nice if they could be organized by location without me having to look through them all ;)
Also, I occasionally take pictures at locations less iconic than the colosseum in Rome, but YMMW :)
Papi61: Every mid-range Android has 1080p nowadays. I wouldn't call anything without a quad-HD screen a "flagship."
Seriously though, who really needs more than 1080p on a phone with a screen smaller than 6 inches.
(says the man with a Samsung Galaxy S6..)
Francis Sawyer: Not supporting iOS is just childish.
No mobile platform gets every app out there, and Android is the largest one after all.
I wouldn't be surprised if they also picked Android because it is a quicker platform to release beta releases on.
Either way, once it is out of beta I am sure you will have your iOS version ;)
I just can't agree with you there BarnET. Unless you never take your camera out of your home/studio then geotagging your photos is a very nice add-on feature, regardless of what types of photos you shoot.
I would love it if every photo I ever took was geotagged so that I could search through them by region, and display a map of the world with my photo locations marked.
Lassoni: What's up with ppl demanding 4k of every dslr now? Can't smartphone take good enough video? You can take a smartphone into a bar / nightclub and take pretty good video. What about campact camera for video? Wouldn't a olympus sh-50 fare well enough?
To answer your question: No, a smart phone can't take good enough video, assuming you want high quality results.
This debate has been done to death already, so I'm not going to bring it up again, but a full frame DSLR like the D810 has many great advantages for recording video compared to a compact camera or a phone.
Wubslin: Another failure from Nikon. I guess I should be disappointed, but I can't even muster disappointment any more.
How Nikon are still in business is a mystery.
Don't let the door hit you on the way out ;)
The only thing I don't like about this camera is the price. I will probably get one in a couple of years when it has come down a bit, and my D600 is starting to show it's age.
Peiasdf: Looks very much alike D800 except lower resolution.
Have you ever tried a Nikon camera? I can assure you I don't struggle with the greens on mine ;)
camerosity: I'll keep my D700, thanks.
I just sold mine to get the D600, and I sure don't regret it ;)
Morpho Hunter: Ah ...must due be the 36mp sensor ...why else would a camera that cannot produce sharp hand-held images when viewed at 100% win such an award?
Ah ..must be due to the 36MP sensor.. why else would a camera that strangles babies in their sleep win such an award ;)
snow14: this is clearly about high MP people love the high miga pixels camera they gave that award to the 5dii in 1999 becuase it has highest MP at the time of release,not many people going to print billboard size and benefit from 36mp also there are not many lenses in nikon linup that has good enough resolving power to take advantage of all that36 MP ,i guess the markting team at nikon did good job.
So true. It doesn't matter if the D800 is a good camera. If any part of the camera is not made by Nikon the camera itself shouldn't get any praise, just like the iPhone didn't get any praise since many components in it were made by Samsung...
And yes, I'm sarcastic :P
michael2011: So D800 is about same as D300S and worse than Canon 7D and Pentax 5-K which cost 1/2 to 1/3 as much? That's a head scratcher to me.
BTW, pictures in the AF review section don't show up in my browser. Links are broken?
Doesn't it state that the points are relative to other cameras in its class?It's not supposed to be compared with cheaper types of cameras.
Photographically Speaking: the review makes me wonder what camera will ever get a superlative review sans lame criticisms from DPR. None, I think. 'Nough said.
Silly comment. There is no such thing as the perfect camera, even the best ones have flaws. I think it's good of dpreview to highlight any potential drawbacks, and with a gold award it's not like the camera was punished that hard for the cons it had ;)
Jogger: The only legit Con on that list is the FPS, but, how many 36mp cameras shoot more than 4 FPS?
True, but you have to view the specs indepentendly. Amateurs in particular use a single camera for everything, and don't have the luxury of getting the D4 as well (me being one of them) ;)
A. Westreich: Oh crap. Now I've got to upgrade most of my lenses . . .
You don't have to.
If you buy a Ferrari, and never plan to drive it over 100 KMH, you don't need to get the most expensive tires ;)
Gothmoth: substandard.. isn´t that standard for nikon? ;)
Haha, it's funny because it' BS ;)
(unknown member): "I am Nikon, so keep the lights On" ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) LMAO
@DioCanonI think it's you who needs to take a closer look in the history books. Releasing the first FF sensor isn't all that impressive when Nikon were pioneers in bringing us digital SLR's in the first place. The same goes for video in DSLR's, where Nikon was first (if only by one day).
In the end both brands have been important in the development of camera technology. Picking a handful of things either did first to claim they are more innovative overall is just silly IMO.
Wow, that's pretty impressive. A lot of people will use the D800 for everything, and having good high ISO performance as well as high resolution is great ;)
