Cy Cheze: Wonderful gear to have for a $10k job for those clients with $100k to spend for the finest.
Meanwhile, a must-have for the $500 / wedding photogs: a lens that optically reduces the subjects' girth, clothing size, dental or dermatological problems, and bad hair. Why can't that old goat (the guy footing the bill?) smile? Well, he probably thinks $500 is way to much.
Sometimes an over-bright flash, complete defocus, and general blow-out is the best "fix."
backayonder: The D600 rebate also comes with a free oil change
LMAO! Made my day. Thanks man.
Jordan Norris: I don't get it, the sky in the first photos looks equally "exciting". Some simple lightroom/darkroom work on the first photo would do the trick. Doesn't seem like photography to me, seems more like arts and crafts.
When I look at the two, the first image with a bit more brightness in the sky gives me the impression they have weathered a storm. The second image suggest to me that things are about to get nasty. (My 2c.)
LarryK: Rambus is not so much a technology company, but rather a patent lawsuit mill.
Best to walk away from anything they develop, it's likely just something their attorneys will use to sue people.
Lawyers and judges are spectacularly ignorant when it comes to technology and it gets worse when parades of engineers are brought into court rooms to try and demonstrate proof of orignal ownership and design.
I'm with larryK, these guys had an ethical bypass at birth.
Thank goodness. Even people that have never used a camera were apologizing for this thing.
donjose: Idiot. The rifle is not even a sniper rifle. It is a shotgun. Snipers don't use shotguns. The photographer doesn't even know what he is talking about. I don't believe his story about research never meant to be made public. He tried to fake a scene and got caught.
I was looking at the weapon and the belt on his shoulder and thinking the same thing...snipers using a shotgun?
Would anyone hesitate to use a BlackRapid strap with a camera like this? I seem to recall somewhere people saying that Nikon's didn't like to be carried by the bottom screw/nut as BR does.
They need to put a poison sticker on this camera. Poor picture quality especially indoors so it is able to compete with iphone/galaxy. WiFi so you can sit in front of your computer and download images wirelessly in 4 times the time you could if you removed a card. Gotta stop there. Too painful.
Okay, don't want to get excited, too early, but this is looking seriously do-able.
I would love to have that RX100 for a week, just to see if I could get used to no viewfinder. That is really my only complaint with that unit.
missymoo: Can someone please tell me a comparison between the Nikon D90 and this new Nikon D500 which is better? I would like all the pro's and con's thanks :)
Seriously? You're too busy to do a bit of browsing on this site? All the details are here.
Does anyone really shoot 12 mp and then wifi or piggyback on their cell phones to move these images around? I guess I am just too old to get the usefulness of this. And yes, even a cheesy optical view finder would put this camera on my radar.
dpreviewprov: I am not denying the problem.
However, if you shoot with a DSLR, prepare to clean your own sensor at some point.
It is easy enough. Watch here:http://visibledust.com/page.php?videos=wet&vswabs=1
I expect to have to clean my sensor from time to time but I really wish Nikon sold this with a wet-clean system. Compared to the sot of the camera, it is not a lot of money but a part of me resents having to give the D600 a sponge bath once a week.
ET2: DPR puts RX100 in a different class. They claim the scores are not comparable between different classes, but yet they mention RX100 everywhere in this review. Isn't that hilarious?
RX100 should have been in the same class as S110. These cameras are competing for the same market. Same buyers.
Putting RX100 in the same class as larger -- not pocketable -- big sensor p&s (such as G1X) or cameras with a fix lens primes like Fuji X100 was really really dumb.
Dude, I think DPR was bang on mentioning the RX100 camera as they did. Sensor size matters and for most point & shoot users, it becomes a question of price versus performance. DPR made that abundantly clear in this review. Not hilarious.
Well, you can't ask for more proof than that. Is anyone aware of Nikon making a statement about this?
I would love to own some Leica lenses but the cameras just don't do it for me. The days of passing a camera down to the next generation are long gone.
Superka: Canon 6D would be Platinum Award. Canon does not have mud on sensors.
I guess I should have gone to superka.com to get the real skinny on the d600. What was i thinking? Thanks for that in depth assessment.
wakaba: Have D600 for 4 weeks now. No dirt on sensor. Very decent ergonomics and faster processing than D800e.Got this instead of a 800e because the 800e is not yet in middleformat territory, so I wait this out while having a lot of fun with the D600.
The body outperforms lenses. So far the 50mm-1.4G is the only one keeping up, barely.
Jut out of curiosity, which lenses are you finding inadequate for this camera?
Gasman66: I investigated this camera thoroughly before I bought my 5DmkIII. The D800 and 5DMkIII seemed too much camera for me, and I didn't want to wait around for the 6D. I really enjoyed my day with the D600, BUT - the autofocus really does suck. For street photography it was hopeless, and I can't begin to imagine how frustrating it would be for sports. Even acknowledging this camera's market niche, it should've lost more points because of this. The gold score is too high.
"Popular Photography" magazine have just released what I would consider a more balanced review of the D600. My advice? If you are a serious amateur, and can afford it, go for a D800 or 5DMkIII.
It's been some time since I purchase the D600 but the AF is in my opinion anything but suck. I only own an older 50mm 1.8D but I've borrowed a 24-70 and a 70-210 VR2 and I was very impressed.
I guess I don't know what I am missing.
mckracken88: the pentax k30 has almost as good noise levels, inbody stabilization but "only" 16mp.
And costs like, an arm and a leg, less.
Aye, and if my grandmother had wheels she'd be a wagon. Seriously, the K30 is a nice camera but we are talking different sensors, different universes.
