TwoMetreBill: Barometric altimeter, give me a break. My wife and I were eating lunch one day in the Rocky Mountains. We have a very good barometric altimeter. In less than an hour, sitting still in a parked car, the altitude changed by a thousand feet. This thing has GPS with accuracy to at least 40' out of water. Out of water, barometric altimeters are little more than random number generators.
What were you eating. sandwiches. hot hamburger or very steamy soup & were windows of car open as the steam and humidity of the food may have interfered with your instrument.
radix1: what's the crop factor of this thing?
YES. its a full frame size 1/2.3" sensor
Why is there no information re what model camera was used, lens, shooting mode, shutter speed, aperture ASA etc.
Group shot of the unhappy Nikon guys. what camera was used for this shot, the colors look horrible. hopefully it wasn't the D5 or the D500.
VENTURE-STAR: So what are you supposed to do with this thing? Wear it on the top of a helmet or use it on a long pole? Wish I could see some point, but its just a silly toy Do something useful Nikon, like building a really good affordable cameraphone.
Or Improve on the flashguns
To those guys that clicked on "I Had It" so did I. I also had a D500 about 30 years ago but got rid of it due to memory cards were not available then.
DavidNJ100: This is what the Canon 7D Mark II should have been. Impressive. 16-80mm/F2.8 VR? Where did that come from. The standard has been 17mm-50mm/55mm. That is quite a zoom range (24mm-120mm equivalent) for a constant F2 .8 aperture. Update: it is F2.8-F4 introduced 6 months ago. I've been using the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 and Sigma 50-150 F2.8.
My only comment would be how close it is in price to the D750. It has a few features over the D750 because it is a generation newer. Would it be unreasonable to expect a D760 with the new D500 features?
Ive tried that lens. it is a good sharp lens. it goes to f4 so what a lot of people dont need f2.8.
(unknown member): Can't imagine why I would want any camera that wasn't actually 35mm or bigger.
I have a D3 & D4. there will always be a market for APSC it does have advantages. Im thinking of getting a a APSC camera or a 4/3 camera.
"Push the boundaries of DSLR" can someone inform me what boundaries have been pushed.
Franco8: What about the Panasonic GM 5 with the 12~32mm lens. Some say its not classed as a compact camera, but it is a lot smaller then the FZ1000 & X100. put a 15mm pancake lens on it and it will become a pocket camera.
Yep your right Chris Common Sense is no longer common these days. Bit like a "Still Photograph" or a "Digital Tripod" or a "Full Frame Camera"
Dash29: The term 'compact camera' doesn't relate to the product accurately. Regardless that it has been an established marketing term in the camera industry for a couple of decades now, its still wrong and is backed up by posts within this thread. It's not a convenient label for fixed-lens cameras, no matter what the opinion of those who think it is.
Since the camera world has grown, quality and brains has been on the decline with people that use the equipment. Its now a gimmick society.
Hi Dash29. I agree with you "Idiocracy" is on the rise. Evidence of this are marketing terms being used such as "Full Frame Camera" or "Full Frame Lens" or "Digital Tripod" or "Digital Camera Bag".

Franco8: These will also make great Christmas gifts
Hi Allison Please Excuse me if I am incorrect. Hanukkah traditionally was not a time for exchanging gifts. Diwali is not celebrated in December. Regardless if what religion or if you are an atheist, taking time off work or going on a holiday gifts are not exchanged. As far as I know Christians are the only ones that exchange gifts in December that came about when the three wise men brought gifts to Jesus. If Im incorrect about Hanukkah, yes then mention Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas. Why are we discussing religion on a website dedicated to photography. If dpreview believes that the word Christmas or Hanukkah may offend, or believe religion does not belong on this site, they should not substitute it with phrases such as Holiday Gifts, Happy Holiday or Merry Holiday.
These will also make great Christmas gifts
Makes a great Christmas gift as well.
Cool, its as good as the 1Dx & D4s. Ill get myself a Hyundai and take it to the Formula 1 track, I should at least win one or two races.
Henrikw: regardless how big you make these hotshoe softboxes, they will never compete with the result achieved from bouncing the flash on a white wall. If I can't achieve directional light from my flash I'd rather turn if off
Thats if you have a white wall. Have you succeeded in packing a white wall into your camera bag to take to a location shoot.
Franco8: With No AF it has a small limited market.
With No AF it has a small limited market.
PetaPi: Did anybody notice the felt coating inside the lens hood is coming loose ?Chicken wire and spit will fix it !Just bump the ISO a bit, save your back and your money !
