Entry level models are key. That's what most of us buy. They need to make an entry level camera that competes.

On article Delayed: Nikon Japan pushes D500 to end of April (135 comments in total)

Release to Beta Testers is now end of April?

Delay to build up stock or to fix bugs?

Sony gets a lot of credit for pushing the envelope.

cgarrard: Inflation is nothing new. It's just harder to absorb in a weak economy. Yes its weak, don't pretend it isn't. No need to get on the camera companies about it.

Inflation in Japan is very low.

Higher prices, lower sales...

I check all my lenses but very few have needed adjustment.

Tony Northrup: I must be the only pixel peeper on the planet who has never, ever felt the need to do a lens microadjustment. I work with shallow depth-of-field and I use a constantly changing assortment of sharp, fast lenses and high-megapixel bodies.

Have I just been incredibly lucky, or is this an over-diagnosed problem?

You've been lucky with an over diagnosed problem.

On article Nikon releases D500 4K UHD sample video (203 comments in total)

Nice to have 4K but I don't think I'll use it. Monstrous file sizes, slow editing, slow downloads, internet system collapse and total planetary failure.
I can't be part of that!

Certainly a welcome addition.
What is it's T stop?
Lots of lens elements decrease light throughput.
I'm often using my 500 mm f4 lens at IS3200 and 6400 due to low light.
This will be about 2 stops slower I would guess.
For moving targets it's going to be a bright light, middle of the day sort of lens.
Still, 800 mm equivalent is pretty amazing in a light weight and relatively inexpensive package.

It'a a winner, but the price will keep it from leaping off shelves.

Excellent photos! Very enjoyable video. Could have been done with any camera but the small, like Fuji is a natural. Now I want one.

As nice as it is, I would not buy a camera with no future.
The future is where I'm headed!

In reply to: Samsung seems to have made this business decision in a hurry.

NX1 announced n Sept 2014, dropped in Nov 2015.
That's hurried!

Amazing comments:
We have the dismissive, the deprecating, the defensive and the daft.

DPR: good reading as always!

Raw: D810 vs A7R2 vs 5DR:
I'd pick the Nikon for sharpness, noise, resolution, color.
All good. Very subjective.

The Nikon mirror up is ideal for me. Raise the mirror. Take the shot at the right moment.

desaint: Oh my freaking g#d...a lot of people complaining here..10 dollar a month three beers less and you are there.
I'ts a ver expensive product to make,you pay thousands of dollars on camera gear but you don't want to pay for your software??
Normal you have to buy it once in the three years and now you pay monthly,i think at the end it's about the same...
And for the illegal downloaders there is enough other software builders you can
use for"free"and then can complain about it:)

The adjustments are held hostage. You still have your images but if you leave CC you lose all the adjustments which is potentially thousands of hours of work. I have 900,000 images in LR now. If I go subscription and they dramatically raise the price, I'm in an awkward spot. No question the price will go up.
