On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1070 comments in total)

Looks good enhancement but still don't get Nikon reason on why not putting 1 X XQD Card to accompany the SDXC card slot, to have a larger user take up of XQD Cards and as a natural progression for users who would like to add / move up to their Full Pro Cameras D4/s +

larrytusaz: Why does anybody care about the video specifications of this high-grade stills camera? If I had $3000 to drop on this I'd do so for the amazing pictures it can take, not the Vimeo or YouTube clips it can record. It's an SLR, not a camcorder.

Not now it all changed when Nikon introduce the D90 - DSLR's are now both still cameras and camcorders - which is good as you only need one device. Wished Nikon did the D8100 with 4K as 1080p is all hat now and 4k is taking over now.

In reply to:

57even: Would be interested to be a fly on the wall at the product planning office in Japan. Lots of red faced apologies no doubt, but I suspect the issue was with one of their component suppliers, since it all seems to narrow down to the shutter itself.

But if anyone is thinking of actually getting a D610 it should be a very nice camera with very few issues and at current prices it's a bargain. I really liked mine, even though I did exchange it for a D800. The latter is objectively better, but I doubt you'd notice 90% of the time.

If you wait a few months price should go down to be as the Canon 6D.

Abhijith Kannankavil: i don think nikon is going into making phones, unless they pair up with some phone makers. if they do it alone, it's almost sure to be a market failure.

Agree should team up with HTC, Google Android, Nokia - Windows Phone company.

Also be more open with JVC and RED in the Pro / Semi pro video and bring out their own D4 C 4K Video camera.

Also be wary of what Sony is doing and try to bring their own models into play. Example RX1, Rx100, VG10 and Mirrorless F Mount DSLR style cameras also.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 10, 2013 at 10:22 UTC

Looks good - reported fast AF via Live-view and video as you expect from a company that has camcorder presence. Also improved AF like 7d and Wi-fi (free), wished they built in GPS rather charging extra.

Looks like a good camera - hopefully the Sensor is improved - however still like the images I get from my Nikon's...

Looks like a great flash and also caters for when shooting Video shooting and quite a good price.

I want one and expect Nikon to update their lens improving optics; flare and offer the same 1.4 in-built TC but charge more than Canon version.

Nice feature set; Wi-fi, large screen, 20mp - however wasn't 2 keen on the Image quality when I tried it out with the NX 100. I stick with my Nikon's....

Looks like good cameras; dig the colors, good resolution at 16mp, competitively price and some good lenses.

Only wish was that they included 1 D-LI109 battery with the camera and you may need quite few sets of 4xAA batteries and higher capacity ones to have decent battery life and the battery compartment could get a tad warm as well.

Good thing for nikon to offer but one difference to Canon's Cashback which is done via Bacs to your bank via credit to your Card or cheque you get a pre-paid card to value of cashback you use for future purchases in the future.

Good review ; but can you give ABP / estimate if you're planning to do review of the Canon 1D-x & Nikon D4, some of us may want to upgrade to these cameras from a DX model like a D300s, 7D, etc and would like to review how good / bad these cameras are.

Scott Wilson: Canon must be smoking crack. I mean really 11K for a 200-400 F4 lens even with a built in 1.4x extender is crazy. You can buy a 200-400 for a lot less and just put on a much cheaper 1.4x extender when you need it.

Come on are we getting so lazy that we can't do this ourselves. Plus if we keep bowing to the big camera companies and paying crazy money for all of these new lens they will just keep going up and up.

A lens is not a car and they don't cost anywhere nears as much to manufacture. Nikon fell and hit their heads when they increased the 200-400 they make and charged almost 2K more for adding VRII. Heck there was nothing wrong with VRI so I didn't see the big upgrade to this lens so I still have mine VRI lens. Before long even us pros won't be able to justify buying new gear. Even Nikon's new 80-400 4.5-5.6 is 2.5K. Are they serious. No 4.5-5.6 variable aperture lens is worth that. Come on Nikon and Canon get real in your pricing before we all have to switch to Sigma/Tamron

Agree with you Scott another evidence of wacky backy pricing is the 18K Nikon charges for the 800 F5.6 AFS VR whereas Canon's version was only £10k. Glad I got majority of my lenses couple of years ago when prices were cheaper; only regret was not picking up a Nikon 200-400 F4 AFS VR I back in 2007.

nplanet: The Sony RX1 is such a big step forward that no other company is even close to releasing something similar.

How do you know; Canon and Nikon could be in later design or about to release one soon ?

Direct link | Posted on May 15, 2013 at 21:35 UTC

Rx1 is good winner; thought the Sony A99 or Nikon D7100 would win over the 6D or the Nikon D600 instead ?
