Mssimo: Here comes the waterfall of rage!
Hughesnet: I got in a preorder for 2 of the 64gb ATT 4G ones. Can't wait for the 16th. Ignore the Android fanboys posting here. This tablet has twice the resolution of theirs, supports usb connection to your camera or a SD card, has iPhoto, has a great built in cam. There is nothing photography related their android tablets can do better.
The Apple crowded survived sub par resolution in the iPad 2 for a while, so I don't think waiting a couple of months for a similar display in an Android tablet should be too hard ;)
Aero Windwalker: Let's see how Canon 5D Mark III is going to kick his ass this round. ;-)
Good luck with that ;)
Deleted1929: I'm numbed by the need to pump 36 Mp into this. Someone needs to take Nikon management off whatever strange substances they're taking.
And why is it that Nikon won't let you bracket in more than 1EV steps ? Why such a ludicrous limitation ? So if I want to bracket for HDR I have to shoot 5 shots just to cover 4 EV extra ? Does anyone in Nikon actually do HDR ? On a D5000 I can bracket 4 EV in just three shots.
People have been b|tching about a reasonable high res Nikon since the dinosaurs, and I don't mind them filling that gap.
I totally agree on the bracketing thing though. Is the dynamic range in the pro cameras really so poor you need a shot for every single stop?
JJMacks: Is this technology going to be able to display a view at the speed of light like an optical viewfinder or have the annoying image frame delay I see in current electronic viewfinders? IMO best suited for video recorders and be better large so you don't need to hold the recorder to ones eye.
It doesn't have to view the image at the speed of light, just quick enough for the human brain not to notice the delay.
I am sure in 5-10 years time OVF's will be a thing of the past...
HiRez: Meh. It looks nice, I'm sure it's an excellent camera. That said, it doesn't seem like much of a leap over the D3. If you need HD video, that's obviously a big deal, and we'll have to see if there's been some major leap in ISO performance. But it doesn't seem like they did anything really innovative here (like X100 hybrid VF type thing). And why did they get rid of the AE-L/AF-L button?
I guess we now know what to expect of the D800: evolutionary changes. Probably same sensor as D4, with HD video, maybe 6 fps, and not much else different. Hopefully priced at $2,500 or so, but more likely $3,000.
I agree with AmaturFotografer. These high end work horses are not about revolutionizing anything, its about improving on the features important to the pro's using them. Canon and Nikon are conservative for a reason. They are big players, and completely changing things around are more likely to lose them market share than to gain it.
Mtsuoka: I AM BOREDthis is mainly upgrade for video features
Which still photography feature did they not improve??The color of the camera?
bullfinchphoto: Checkmate Canon!
"However the jump from Canons 1D MK IV to the 1DX is much larger then increasing a sensor with 4MP and call it D4"Next time you read camera specs, don't stop reading when you get to the resolution :P
whtchocla7e: Nothing new and exciting from a technological standpoint.Great for the pro and the 'advanced' amateur who thinks he needs it but completely bland for the rest of us..
Sure, I find Ferrari's terribly bland as well, since I could never afford one.
Mach Schnell: Since when does eveyone have an iPhone? Last I checked, Android was outselling iPhone by a pretty large margin. There are 550,000 new Android devices being activated every day. (No, I don't work for Google)
I am sure your article was more about "smart phones vs real cameras" than "iPhone vs Android" ;)
Vladik: Could have taken the opportunity to move production to a more developed country. A place like Nevada would be perfect, cheap land and free of natural disasters, just have to fight the heat.
Well, if you expect the camera workers to work for much less than the rest of the country. If everyone agrees to cut the standard of living I don't see any problems with it ;)
borobudur: Nikon its time to show off ur new stuff right NOW!!
Maybe I'm just an ignorant Nikon fanboy, but is really Canons latest releases that exciting from a still photographers point of view?
What are the killers specs that would make Nikon pro's ditch their gear for the new Canons.
Personally I have been waiting for the D700 update for a while, but frankly I can't afford a new cam and the old one works perfectly well still ;)
Well, if 4K video excites you you might as well get the Canon. I don't think Nikon is releasing that any time soon ;)
mpgxsvcd: I couldn't care less if it is 5 mp or 50 mp. What aperture does it have and is the "zoom" optical or digital.
Apple is so good at advertising their products. You never have to ask "so what is great about this new phone because they blast it out to everyone". Samsung and Google give you little hints about what it might have but it really just confuses the customer in the end.
Well, Apple blast out whatever they think is great about it.
The "problem" with the ICS release is that they have improved upon a million different smaller things, and which of them are the most important for you depends entirely on what you use it for.
rvalle: You know what? Just stick a phone module on a Fuji X10, get it running Android, and I'll be happy.
Oh, I like your thinking. I would LOVE a DSLR based on Android :D
Annoyed that your expensive DSLR can't do -2 / +2 bracketing, or that the max shutterspeed without expensive remotes is 30 seconds?Download an app that fixes it :)
Matt Mercier: After my initial disappointment at not seeing an iPhone 5, I realized that this is an upgraded squarely at strengthening the iPhones place as (as far as I know) the best image capturing phone. I have an iPhone 3GS which takes 8 seconds to get picture ready.. which can really limit its effectiveness. Fast processing, decent image quality, and finally a solid shutter button (apple now builds in using volume as the shutter) address people like us. As the #1 camera on Flickr, it is valid to discuss. I'm happy to see this kind of post on dpreview, in fact perhaps a few more camera phone reviews over printers... do people still buy those?
Being the #1 camera on flickr doesn't necessarily mean it has the best camera.
Either way, 1080p video, faster start up and (reportedly) better low light performance are good upgrades.
Richard Murdey: The embarrassing thing, really, is that the iPhone4 is more fun, and less complicated, than a modern digital compact camera from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic etc. Adding insult to injury is the fact that the output is essentially equivalent.
Camera manufacturers had years of opportunity to make a fun, simple, high quality camera with, for example, a developer based software ecosystem, and instead we get "scene mode 33: baby portrait mode IIa : bath and indoor sports." Gee.
That the iPhone (and smartphones generally) is kicking compact cameras to the curb gets no sympathy from me.
I would definitely welcome a similar app-model on DSLR's, allowing you to customize the UI and functionality more.
That said, saying that the output is essentially equivalent is wrong. If you only post facebook pictures I guess they are pretty similar, but if you want to do some processing to your shots, make larger prints or shoot in low light a DSLR is a completely different thing.
Joel dc: i want a mirrorless nikon with range finder... but can still use the AF/AF-S lenses... i love these lenses and they work perfectly superb.... no need to invent new lenses.... but wanting to try new bodies.... :)
Couldn't agree more. A mirrorless camera would be exciting, but please keep the F-mount!I have a bagful of Nikon lenses already, and if they release a new mount there is no particular reason for me to choose Nikon if I want a mirrorless camera.
Also, I don't want a super small sensor. 1,5x crop is small enough.
Nice, good memory for a decent price. I used those in my previous build.
Photo wise the perspective is interesting and I like the colors. Nice shot :)
