On Nikon updates Coolpix P900 and S6700 firmware article (9 comments in total)

TylerQ: So they updated the firmware on the Coolpix P900 and the camera isn't available anywhere but on Ebay at an inflated price? Just great!

Thank you DPreview for providing the P900 update link. Nikon's update was easy and only took a few minutes. Basically copy update file to a camera formatted disk, then insert in camera and select through menu/version. Update successful in about a minute on the camera.

On Big Zoom: Nikon Coolpix P900 real-world samples article (154 comments in total)

I'm definitely impressed with the composition, subjects and overall presentation of the samples - great job DPreview! IQ is exactly what I expected from a mega-zoom camera. I've used Sony's high zooms for several years and IQ is similar for this type tool, which is completely acceptable given cost. Without the long zoom, many of these shots would be impossible to get. The only disappointment I've heard of so far is an occasional operational freeze-up, which battery removal/replacement fixes.
Overall, Nikon has set the zoom bar high with this one. Way to go Nikon!

cgarrard: ZS50 is very nice on paper, its going to grab some attention. Panasonic clearly are starting to get the message and cleaning up some past mistakes. That is a camera that actually entices me.


ZS50 Looks to be everything you could ask for in a small package. Excellent EVF, LCD, high zoom, small size - perfect for sitting in the stands of a sporting event, concert, kids activities or traveling. So glad this product is being offered. Maybe others will follow providing some competition, because there is nothing else out there with these specs!

Hey, wait a minute. It still has the small P&S 1/2.3 sensor. I already have one of those. Still, $399 is a good price.

...and it shoots RAW. Wheeeeee!

Can't wait to try it out. Wouldn't it be something if the IQ of the new sensor turned out to be OK? Even in low light at the long end. Oooooh.

Flikr is the bomb. Make it more awesomer by adding photo editor that's more awesomer than photshop and add rocket fuel to the uploader...
Flikr is an excellent photo sharing site. I'm still in my 1st year of subscription, have added thousands of photos, but the real benefit is viewing other's pics, getting ideas & learning about various cameras.

On Sony SLT-A37 preview (49 comments in total)

Is it just me or do the sample images of auto portrait framing look washed out? Is this the best that could be produced for the preview?
