Should have been DQ-ed. Glad it made last... but don't understand that people voted on this image at all.
phazelag: Optional Wifi adapter and 460K Screen Dots, seems like 2009.
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.
sajjadkhalid: Is there any info about the price?
Why don't you read the article you are commenting?
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.
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'.
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... :)
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.
Tripeiro: Dead system. The 200 birders that will buy the V3 won`t keep it alive.
"Dead system"... ha... ha... ha... :) haven't we heard that all the way since the J1/V1... I am still laughing out loud about such stupid comments and blanket statements.
bgbs: Nikon 1 failure. It's simple, if you cannot sell it in the USA you've failed.
bgbs, you have too high thoughts about the importance of you and know too little about the world outside your own narrow boxed mind.
Very interesting. I always wondered why we can't control the exposure in even higher detail, at pixel level. I understand that currently that's too much to ask, but I believe it is coming some times in the future.
Sonyshine: Price! Price! Price!
As DPR says:
One concern we have - at least here in the U.S. - is the price. Nikon USA is bundling the camera with the 10-30mm PD-Zoom lens, EVF, and grip, with a price tag of $1200. Considering that you can buy a Sony a6000 with a 16-50mm power zoom lens, built-in EVF, and similar Hybrid AF system for $400 less, the V3 doesn't seem like a great value. Despite that, we look forward to putting the V3 through its paces, and seeing if that burst mode lives up to the hype.
Nothing more to say really.....
Price is not what I am concerned about... that stupid design is my main concern, namely the absence of integrated EVF.
What a stupid idea those Nikon geniuses came up with...
Optional EVF, you have to chose to use a flash or an EVF... the same stupid idea Olympus implemented in their entry level mirrorless cameras. While the flip LCD is nice and useful, the removal of EVF is the craziest thing Nikon could do with this system. No future for me there, glad that I bought the V1 which is probably my last Nikon 1, unless Nikon makes one WITH an integrated EVF.
Basically, MF cameras are waist level cameras IMHO. So, the question is, can you tilt the VF upwards or is it exchangeable to a vertical one, or at least have a tilt able LCD?
Frank_BR: Ove Bengtson, Hasselblad Product Manager said: "… This CMOS sensor model represents a major leap forward in camera development and breaks new grounds for medium format photographers…"
It sounds almost ridiculous when someone says in 2014 that CMOS sensor is a "major leap forward in camera development". In 2000 the Canon D30 already had a CMOS sensor! That is, the sensor technology of medium format is lagged 14 years compared to other formats. The technology in the MF field develops so slowly that in 2028 Hasselblad (if it survives until then) will be bragging that its MF cameras can shoot 1080i video…
...and how many MP had that Canon????? Was the high ISO and the DR also as good as this one? Was the D30 a medium format camera or just a tiny APS-C? Don't be silly.
Please read what he says once more, perhaps then you'll understand, but to help you out reading your own quote: he says "*THIS* CMOS sensor" not CMOS sensors in general. Of course THIS sensor is ground breaking and is a leap forward, especially considering MF cameras.
Nick8: Just one thought, not related to this new great camera in particular…In the film era, both the ASA and DIN standards were used for the film sensitivity.100 ASA was equivalent to 21 DIN.I think DIN would have been a far more practical choice. ISO 409,600 would be equivalent to 57 DIN.Another 2 steps in sensitivity from 409,600 and the ISO will become 1,638,400 vs 63 DIN.Certainly that cannot fit on a dedicated dial :)
Yes, you are right. ISO never made sense in this aspect, DIN would be much better.
