NCB: Wonder who actually makes it. Could be Nikon of course. But this is the sort of camera which Cosina used to make for other camera companies. Nothing wrong with that, they were pretty well built, to the specs of the camera company in question. And Cosina is still going strong. Could make sense for Nikon to farm it out. But they might not do that for public image reasons.
yeah well the new "nikon" sensors are sony developments... why not outsourcing other stuff too?
some chinese backdoor manufacturer sure can make a "oil of sensor" nikon? ;-)
it´s pure photography.. so this is a black and white only camera.
larrytusaz: The deliberate omission of the senseless YouTube mode alone makes me want to buy it, based solely on that principle alone. Putting YouTube on an SLR totally splatters any purity it would otherwise have.
then your not much older then me.
i only wonder why you would PREFER to NOT have a feature you can just ignore.nobody is forcing you to use video. are nikon cameras delivered with a little japanese who forces you to make a video once a week? or is your will not strong enough to ignore the video mode? what is it? :)
have you seen the fantastic videos that are possible with DSLR´s?and no, 300-400 euro camcorders don´t deliever the same quality. and you have to purchase them in addition to a DSLR. why would i wish to waste money?
buying a camera because it LACKS features seems like a strange idea. an idea normaly only old geezers have. :)
larry are you over 60 by any chance?
whtchocla7e: The camera doesn't look retro at all, unless we're talking 90's retro. It's a fat, little D3200 with a shutter speed dial.
PerL: Hits the bulls eye it seems, judging by the comments and commotion all around the internet. Apparently it stirs emotions, and that is a good thing.I will get this unless the price is way to high. For those critical about the retro approach - there is still a superb line of modern FF Nikon DSLRs to choose from.
well look at the comments here..... do they sound very positiv to you?
except the vocal die hard nikon fans (who would by any crap as long as it has an oily sensor) most seem to think this will be just an overpriced retro camera with no video.
well or they just think it sucks.
hasselblad lunar.... anyone?
Paul Farace: Me like! And they are using the traditional non-italic NIKON logo !!! YEAH... I REALLY HATED THAT ITALIC LOGO!!! -- my designer soul was offended! Now all is right with the world ... or until I choke on the price tag for this apparent gem in the polishing shop!
yeah...thank god no italic logo.... puhhh
well helloween, a lot of discussion is not always positive.that´s what im saying. to complicated for you to grasp?
you need a sketch?
Nukunukoo: Nikon is in financial turmoil, so the execs figured that it's better to release this niche product rather than the D400?
hasselblad has just released more stellar products.and hasselblad is in deeper sh*t then nikon.
it makes no sense.. but managers parachute from one company to another. they get their money anyway.
HawaiiVolcanoes: Nikon...please get your act together.
yeah the fact that video is missing makes it unbelievable interesting and hip. lol....
caver3d: Olympus is always the innovator with others following (Retro look, Live View, 5-axis IBIS, Sensor Dust Reduction system, etc.) . The Nikon DF and Sony A7 are retro ripoffs of the Olympus OMD series (E-M5 and E-M1).
the photography (optical lenses) biz from nikon is 96 years old.a fanboy or girl should know that.
kadardr: Leaked specs suggest it might be specialized for low light-high iso. An improved D4 sensor? WOW
leaked specs or rumored specs?
the D600 oil issue has heated up some emotions to.. was it a good thing? :)
paris hilton has lot of press too.
nah i don´t think it´s that easy....
Ernest M Aquilio: Lets pretend for a moment that this is the internet and anything I say can be completely disregarded.
Nikon DF, Digital Fusion: Remember that patent Nikon filed for an interchangeable sensor? ( At least I think it was Nikon)
So with digital fusion you can remove the sensor "unit" and in its place able to load 35mm film "unit" that will use 35mm films. Now that's real fusion. Akin to the R9 DM. But you know...
do you know what i care about your brabblings? :-)
my post have a lot to do with the topic..but maybe some fanboys here don´t like to hear it..... i was not starting the personal attacks kiddo. but im more then willing to participate in a little FF (flamefest) ... you are no competition anyway.
This is the camera where the unused "stop production" D600 shutters were installed...
10,000 shutter test before buying...
Sorry.... I forgot the advertisement statement: "Complete with oily dirt, just like in the old days, real retro stuff..."
no why should we?
Henry M. Hertz: what´s next nikon?
next model is a nikon pinhole camera for 4000 euro?
no video, no AF but pre WW2 styling....
no that must be your mother.
well then im in good company mister_trollo, right?
if it gives you pain ..... i love it bamboojled. your rhetoric is so weak.. try doing better next time!
im here since 2002.. you must be blind or just .....
im fine.. and you. still the prostata issues?
