Mark Kneen: Still yet to work out why anyone one really needs an iPad other than to say ooohhh look at me with the latest kit. I mean, really, 64 GB of storage for £550.... you're 'aving a laugh surely?? Get yourself a half decent laptop with 10x storage and faster for the same money plus it will actually DO things rather than just show stuff.
I sold many weddings by simply showing our portfolio on an iPad. It has proven to be one of our best selling tools ever. I believe the same can be done with any of the half decent and big enough tablets out there, we just happen to have an iPad (first generation). Any laptop pales in comparison as a sales tool.
ZeevK: I really do not understand the need foe new release to add support for new camera. This can be easily accomplish through external files like .dll or similar. It's only a new swet of parameters to be used by existing algorithm - not dedicated algorithm for each brand or model...
They addressed some of the speed issues as well...
Kassra: enough already with that same old body shape... this is NOT the most beautiful or the most functional or the most practical body shape a camera could ever have. perhaps the folks at the design department need some imagination?!
Hope they never change the shape too drastically... It's like the 911 of cameras... (unfortunately only in terms of design and not on "performance")
If Leica would have pulled out a similar package at the same price, everyone would say "Wow! What a bargain"...
Photozopia: I'm in for one .... BUT ..... first I gotta email Apple to make a B&W only Cinema display. Couldn't possibly process the M-M output on a full colour one! Keeping It Real Leica!
(Sarcasm alert - in case you were wondering!)
Hey, such a display would be awesome to watch timeless old flicks on... stuff like City Lights, The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca...and so on...
motobloat: At last, a camera for hipsters living off of their parents' money! Pretty easy to afford with a $10,000 a month stipend from dad, and soooo retro! Does it do instagram filters too?
Seriously though, besides hipsters and the insanely wealthy, I can't see much of a target market for this specialty device...
Well Leica is German and all Germans own now a second property. It's called Greece.
Before all of you jump at my throat, I've seen these EXACT words on subway ad billboards all over London...
jkokich: There isn't one complainer in this forum who wouldn't LOVE to get his hands on one of these!
Yes there is.
What I didn't quite get maybe they should clarify that:
Does D800's sensor's have greatest pixel count of any non medium format DSLR currently on the market ?
Poss: Will anyone inform Sony and Nikon of the need for BETTER pixels ? Not MORE ?
Downsampling will NOT get you around high pixel density sensor diffraction.At some point people will understand this physical limitation, even though my hopes are pretty low this will happen anytime soon.
Will anyone inform Sony and Nikon of the need for BETTER pixels ? Not MORE ?
srados: Why is that on these forums there is a LOT of people that complain and nit-pick about features like "how they will not buy camera because button does not exist". It reminds me about commercial when guy is sitting in formula 1 and obviously does not have money to purchase it, he was asking a sales person "does it comes in blue"??? It seems to me photographers are bunch of cry-babies that did forgot the fact that not so long ago we were shooting FILM and that was a challenge...especially changing roll in the middle of the shoot.No button to press...not to mention 5-10% of failed pictures for wedding for example.For the record I will continue to use my trusty Canon 20D...I like the new Nikon line!!!Especially 4D.If I could afford it to make money with it, I would buy it, no I am not asking does it come in blue... :-)
Somehow I never loved my old 20D... Try a used but not abused old 5D... you'll see what I mean... :-)
lamosaurousrex: 1Dx or Nikon D4? ummmmm please....
GordonAtWork: Isn't photography about the end result ? It's great having the newest, fastest, most hunky-doryest model around but I think most are being swept along with all the hype. Good that Nikon, Canon etc are pushing the technological barriers but the images are what count.No good having a great camera but not having the talent to use it properly.
The end result depends on (in order from the subject to the photographer) the light on the subject, the lens you're putting on, the camera you have and the little grey cells between one's ears. None of those is more or less important in the process than the other.
Can I get good results (and a good laugh) using Instagram at a wedding? Sure I can. Will I use an iphone to shoot the entire wedding ? Ummm... no.
(unknown member): The images are crap as usually - instead of advertising any cam DPReview samples are anti-marketing for these cameras. I use many brands. All are quite under-performing on DPR samples. Besides the pure IQ these samples also useless in terms of sensor testing - mostly mid ISO, mostly open, mostly soft, mostly poorly exposed.....a darn shame really. "Reviewers".......:)))))
Sometimes conclusions of camera reviews here are just as perplexing...
Played a bit with one of these last weekend at my local Henry's. After becoming accustomed lugging a fully decked D3s all day long, the little Fuji seems like it should be able to float in midair...
AF seemed quite OK and loved to have an aperture ring to fiddle with.
Nice camera, the first in years I'm really getting excited about.
Andrew Higgins: Fuji are to be applauded for creating their range of high quality X cameras. While the Leica M9 undoubtedly has a certain cachet, and very fine lenses (at a very high price), surely it is the X-Pro 1 that really delivers, and a t a more realistic price too?For photographers who want to work with an alternative to a dSLR, this must be The camera of the moment. And just think what the X-Pro2 might be like?!
How about a FF Fuji sensor in a M (10?) series camera?
Photogaz: I'm confused. You're all saying the D4 looks better but in my view on RAW mode the D3 looks better. I've checked about 4 different places and the D4 has so much more colour noise.
I think the D3s 's DOF is slightly shifted forward and D4's slightly backward. Better said, one front focuses slightly the other back focuses slightly with the same lens. That's pretty evident (at least to me it is)
AshMills: So, they topped up the Martini?
Nah... just some red ink...
(unknown member): My humble prediction 1D X vs D4/D3s
When the light get really low Nikoners will pack up their gear and head home. Once home they will find a comfy corner, curl up into a little ball so to cry themselves to sleep. Night night sleep tight. :P
Nothing humble about your prediction...
