Johannes Zander: Not enough gold!
This doesn't make me stand out among other Photographers!
I'll get the Brikk'S version! ;)

Less than 5g gold plus some black paint. That's all you get.

They missed the flash shoe and the tripod socket.

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1431 comments in total)

I know what the label says, it says D750, but is this really going to get all those people who absolutely DEMANDED a D700 replacement? I doubt it. This camera is a D650, not a D750. Nikon made a mistake when they printed the label, or...

...they had a D650 under production and made a last minute change decision, suddenly realizing the demand for a D700 and believing that they can fool everyone and decided to change the label to D750 to satisfy the market.

No AF-ON in a sports oriented camera? Maximum shutter activation at this low count in a high frame rate, sports camera? Maximum shutter speed 1/4000s? Flash sync speed 1/200s? Layout and design of D610?

How can they call this a D750? The only thing which resembles the D750 is the AF system.

In reply to:

matt k: Flip-out screen is the weak link for me. Makes a camera fragile, otherwise, it seems like a very good camera.

The flip screen is the most interesting thing in this camera. It is not fragile at all and if you don't what to flip it out then just let it be. I'd love to have that flip screen in my camera. I say: FINALLY Nikon see this as a selling argument and I definitely welcome it with open arms. Too bad the other features are not so impressive.

photo nuts: Wow... 109 comments within a short space of time...

I am seriously impressed with the D750 specs. Great release.

Impressed? The way I see it, it is an evolution of D610, not D700.

See: Maximum shutter speed, flash sync speed, shutter life time, utility connector and so on. Yes, it has faster fps than the D610, but considerably slower than the D700.

Branko7: Nobody mentions how many card slots will have, and what type of card, CF, or SD?

Mentioned on page 1, 2 and 5, perhaps even elsewhere.

Should have been DQ-ed. Glad it made last... but don't understand that people voted on this image at all.

No it doesn't create any more artifacts as any other shutter type.

JEROME NOLAS: They must be really retarded, eating too much sushi I guess!

You have TOTALLY missed my point. It is THEIR business which cameras/lenses or whatever they release. If I like what they have, I buy it, if not, then I don't.

I couldn't care less if you "spent your money wisely" or not. I don't kiss their ..(whatever).. any more than anyone else's and I never actually said that this camera is great, so don't put any words in my mouth. All I said was that it is THEIR business what and when they release or not. They didn't ask ask you, which must be frustrating for you to realize, but such is life.

As for how much Nikon loves me... well, that's another thing you don't have a clue about.

Well, surely optional WIFI and 460k LCD is at the low end, but maybe the other features are not... Like how many cameras had so high maximum shutter speeds (1/16000s yes, one sixteen thousands of a second), so many AF points (171) and so high frame rate (60fps in raw), full HD video and so on back in 2009...? Maybe the 460k LCD is not that great, but maybe it also allows practically lag less, REAL real time display, which was definitely not possible back in 2009, not even with a display with even less resolution than 460k.

tkbslc: I don't hate the 1 system, but why so many models when the original J1 and S1 are still for sale on clearance!! Obviously they can't sell enough to justify a new model every 6 months.

tkbslc, the J1/V1 may be on sale by SOME shops, but Nikon stopped selling and producing those a long time ago. It is not that a new model can be released only when the previous one is sold out by EVERY shop in the world. They release a new model obviously because they are selling well enough to make money on it.

Yes... they should have asked YOU how to run THEIR business and what to release when before they do it.

SW Anderson: From the news release: "Available in June 2014, the Nikon 1 S2, kitted with the 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm . . ."

Pardon my nit-pick, but "kit" is not a verb. Nikon's new cameras look interesting. The company shouldn't let a flack's mangling of the language detract from its announcement.

Google is also not a verb yet it is nowadays OK to say "to google". It is actually accepted in Sweden today to use it as a verb. 'Kitted' been used for several years as well. Languages go through renewals as well, not just technology.

In reply to:

plasnu: Am I the only one who prefer the color of before calibration?

Plasnu, you must calibrate your monitor and you will see the difference. The 'after' image is definitely better than the 'before'.

In reply to:

Vamp898: After several tests i can summarize that you dont have any advantage using this on a Sigma SD1.

If i take a completely uncalibrated Test-photo of the Color Checker with the Sony a99 and the Sigma SD1, the Sigma already shows all colors correct where the a99 seems obviously to change the colors to somewhat liking i dont know.

So for the Sigma owners, you most likely dont have any advantage as you already have a good camera.

The Sigma must be the perfect camera... :)

In reply to:

Kialya: I prefer the 'before' images more so then the 'after' ones. The after images seem too yellow/warm. I would color correct for something in between the two, but closer to the 'before' color images.

I think that's because you look at it using an uncalibrated monitor. My monitor is calibrated using X-rite and the 'after' image looks definitely better, more life in it and much nicer colors than the 'before' image.

Wow... Excellent image. Well done and really, well deserved, so congratulations to your picture.

The only thing I would have done differently is that I would have cropped out part of the sky... there is just too much of it, but never the less, it is an excellent image.
