These are all very mice cameras and I would love to have full frame and if some legacy lenses can do well on the digital sensor, so much the better.
But I wish Nikon ( or someone else) could rethink the digital SLR. Make it more compact, simpler to operate, without giving up robustness. Time to get away from the space shuttle console.
"The 24MP D750 is Nikon's third full-frame DSLR this year, and for a lot of our readers, it might be the most significant. Sitting between the more affordable D610 and the pro-grade, high-resolution D810, the D750 borrows elements from both cameras. Impressively though - with the exception of its sensor - the D750's build quality, ergonomics and feature set have much more in common with the more expensive of the two."
Change model and I can't believe how many times I've read the same sentiment at the beginning of a Nikon DSLR review.
Welcome camera but there has to be a way to simplify and improve the modern DSLR interface-how many buttons, dials, doo-dads do we need to operate a camera.
Richard Murdey: I'm still confused about what this new viewfinder does that the previous one did not. The manual focus aids which were EVF-only on the "S" can now be overlaid in the optical view in the "T", is that it?
Other OEMs need to get on the ball and rethink viewing and focusing.
I understand your comments about the battery, but if I can afford a $1,300 camera, I'll have 4 or 5 batteries in pocket. I wish Leica has the resources and motivation to try and advance viewing systems, as Fuji has.
Glad you're on this one, Richard.
I applaud Fuji for trying to advance the state of the digital camera, especially the viewfinder. This is what irks about the DSLR-only Sony tried to advance the concept, bringing back the pellicle mirror. And Leica RF. Great-but no different than 1953. Contax's innovation were too late in the film era.
jaaboucher: Sure, this lens is meant for controlled and slow moving environments, but if Canon or Nikon would put a split circle focusing screen in one of their cameras, even us with crappy vision could get something out of these manual lenses.
I actually still like manual focus. Could the OEMs improve manual focus implementation on both DSLRs and Compact System Cameras.
Wished they had gone one step further and had a small LCD display where you go review the images and folders.
MPA1: Can we now have one with a CF card reader...!
Should have added USB port so one could use other card types and so could be used as a conventional external drive. Close, but no ...
Looks and feels like substantially the same machine as the existing ones. Doubt that paper feed has ben improved.
Demonstrates Canon's relevancy in modern imaging. Nikon has medical, I guess, but doesn't seem as solid?
sportyaccordy: What is the advantage of this over a NEX or RX camera with Wifi syncing?
Smartphone users weren't coming to cameras, so Sony is bringing the camera to the smartphone. I see people carrying mulltiple phones these days, taking pics, etc., but many of them wouldn't think of carrying the cameras you mention, of which SAMSUNG is the leader.
forpetessake: Here is an idea for Sony how to make those QX modules more useful for the ordinary people, who have only two hands and no dirty thoughts. They should release a helmet/cap/hat with a smartphone holder, large battery, connectors, etc. Then one can use a QX module and free hands from holding the phone. The helmet visor can also flip 180 deg to show a message, "Hello, I'm a photographer. I'm shooting with Sony QX1, I'm not a spy or a creep."
It's all coming, including that new Casio concept.
Let's reinvent the camera. At least, Samsung and Sony are meeting the future more than half way. By the time you purchase and add on these sensors and lenses, clamps, whatever, it would be easier-and less expensive- to just pull out a connected camera-but if this is what the younger generation wants ...
Gesture: The body alone should be no more than $300.
Getting closer. This is the entry level model. Simply overpriced.
Cue the Harry Lime music.
That kit lens goes for about $50 on eBay. This should cost no more than $450. It's the entry level model. Design and engineering for OVF, moving mirror, meter off the whatever has been amortized years ago.
Entry-level body, no lens, should be less than $400, if that. But that OVF and moving mirror are expensive-even though 50 years+ in the making. However, the compact system cameras are priced even higher, if anything. I'll stick to my Olympus C-3040-with the latest and greatest integrated spot metering.
