Wilmark: DP Review should accept a lot of the responsibility of how the D600 was accepted in the public domain, maybe Nikon should have called it the DP600. DP review gave this flawed camera one of its highest ratings for any DSLR that most likely have lead to many dissatisfied purchases and Nikon not living up to it end of the bargain. DP review knew about the problem about the "dust" and "oil" issue and continued to mislead customers with its very high rating. I am very suspicious of any DP involved rating when it comes to camera equipment - DP Review have never issued any apologies nor recalls for its flawed review and may have knowingly mislead many readers. I am also very suspicious of any DXO review as well.
dpreview has become just another pr machine after overseas sell. and now they've changed their testing set-up, so you can't compare old and new stuff, another bite to..and i also agree on dxo- very bias, if you ask me to you know who with simple argument: our test shows... well, my don't and i use both camps and other stuff.
vapentaxuser: Image quality looks almost exactly the same as the P7700..not that that's a bad thing. But I guess if you can do without the viewfinder, you can save yourself almost $300 and get the same level of imaging performance with the P7700.
p7800 is 7700 with viewfinder..
babalu: A very specialized item; those who need such a ring flash , mainly professionals like doctors or researchers in need of accurate macro lighting, will rather stay with their present ring flash equipment . Also it looks awkwardly big and intrusive.. and needs a flash unit on top of the DSLR .
big is usualy good ehn comes down to artificial light... would be nice to see some test, i can imagine use of this gizmo on two or three flashes off camera..
hmm, 7d only for stills? hope they're working on 6d too, or it's already integrated?
so, no need for d800 any more, hehe? if this new feature can solve shadows etc like mentioned nikon, than 6d is more an more option for me..
joe6pack: While the hack is very impressive, I think it is irresponsible to play firework in a forest.
no, it's actually a valid comment. this is very irresponsible.
nikon p7700 design.. not a bad thing.
wait, you can't change lenses on this thing? kudos to sigma, hehe..
canon should just buy sigma (or at least foveon, sigma ideonst making money with it) and thats that..
one of the best reviews of this camera (which i own) that i found so far is here http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Nikon_COOLPIX_P7700/
"..at an RRP of $1299.99."
this is note real store price, if you ask me. in eu i know for sure price will be 800-900€, maybe even less in some special pre-ordering. fot states i guess price will be somewhere about 1k$ for this samyang, rikonon ehatever (asian way of branding, hehe) lense.
the distribution of af points (specialy in crop mode) is something that should be allready existed in ff camers, for example. this aproach is very interesting, camera could be dream for semi pro sport photographers, birders etc..
just for once, buy that adapeter and compare ALL lenses on ONE same camera..
Sigma, what's wrong woth you? Just make dp camera with mount, that's it. And please, we all know foveon get's very hot etc, but if you can't make camera, that can take pictures over iso 800 and make hd movies, which can last mora than 10s, than sorry: just start buying sony sensors, like nikon does..
omg, apple, google.kodak, rip (2x). at least for film..
marike6: Some of the best looking JPEGs ever from a Nikon P&S, and right up there with the best small 1/1.7" sensor cameras as far as I can see. Good colors, not many awful artifacts, and the lens seems to be quite sharp.
sorry, iwas not precise enough before. what i want to say is: is there some free raw converter with good raw editing tools (wb, noise removing, lens correction etc)? now i discover that view nx (which i install it as soon i bring camera at home, hehe) have some editing tools, but it's very basic.thnx.
well, i have this camera at home (now it's gone with my girlfriend on trip to china).have it just a day or so, but what i can tell about colours (and other vital parametrs of camera) is:you can set manualy almost anything, so setting colours by your needs it's not a problem (you have some pre-sets, like vivid, neutral etc, also nice colour ring..), best thing to do is raw anyway."washed" colours are raleted to cmos sensor (vs. more vivid on ccd chips), if you ask me, and probably intagrated neutral density filer (not sure if this is real filter or just digital mimick), which helps for better tonality.anyway, it's nice camera. oh, another thing as i am more canon dslr guy: does nikon have any FREE raw converter or not?
cool. now canon should also make "pancake" fullframe dslr, so all this make sense (ok, film users with "small" cameras should welcome this lense), otherwise just makes pancake for crop - much more useful..
now, check all cameras for this, i'm sure that 80% would show this problem. heck, that's why there's that rubber on shoulder strap..
