Bug fix? The whole things a bl@@dy mess!

Come on Nikon, get your act together with this (falling on deaf ears I know!). Long time user of NX2 which I actually like but this is rubbish. I am actually holding on my purchase of D750 (have D800 & D600) because of this and I suspect many others out there are doing the same?

Sdaniella: flipping vari-angle (non-swivel) tilts-only-up-n-down LCD ...

no face-forward, even if mounted on a tripod
no angle left
no angle right
just up-n-down viewable held from the rear
and no face-inwards (for protection)

Nikon did offer Canon-style fully articulating VASS (vari-angle swivel screen) on the odd APSC DX dSLR, why back to this less flexible tiltflip updown LCD instead!?

why did Canon also use a less flexible tiltflip updown LCD instead on their Powershot G1XMkII?

what gives? we've seen other mfrs doing this, too. but it baffles me, perpetuating clearcut inflexible designs don't make any practical/functional sense at all.
restricts creative VASS perspective shooting options a great deal!

I can understand objections to fragility of moving VASS parts in higher FF models where pro/prosumer work can be more rough, but this is where a modular-robust-VASS could come in to compliment a fixed rear-screen (yes, I do want two OEM well-integrated screens over just one)

Stop talking so much b@ll@cks please.

Thank you.

nidri: Nikon UK announces Creative Pricing System (CPS), fully compatible with new D4, D800 and D800E models.

Following on from the success of the Creative Lighting System, we are proud to officially launch this exciting new innovation, known as CPS. The Creative Pricing System gives us the ability to effectively adjust the RRPs of our most popular DSLR camera models. Think of the original RRP as the equivalent of a RAW file; all we've done is adjust the 'price' slider a few notches upwards, tweaked the Moral Balance settings a little, and voila! - a beautifully rendered JPEG, aka your hard-earned money please.

The best post I have seen here. Please post this in the main d800 / d4 / d700 forum.

CPS. Very good. This should be sent to Nikon UK
