On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1589 comments in total)
In reply to:

Albert: As a Nikon shooter; I hope Canon brings better stuff to give Nikon pressure; but the pressure seems to come from Panasonic these days. This is a sad sad upgrade IMHO; the obvious being no 4K and same sensor. My D600 is 2 years old and still has better IQ than this. Nikon and even more so, Canon are playing a dangerous game if they think everybody is going to be loyal for another 10 years with the crap they are pushing out. NFC, Wifi, GPS, 4K, insane buffer, and uber sharp lenses. Nikon's bodies lack focus peaking, NFC, Wifi, GPS and 4K. Canon bodies lack a sensor from within the last 5 years. Sigma is SPANKING both in the new lens department.

If Canon / Nikon user has lot of glass invested then with current and increasing prices of glass it is prohibitive (and you lose lot of $$/££/E) to change systems - could add another system but that would meaning getting use to it.

janist74: As a Nikon shooter. Nikon has a problem. Let`s bet. The long awaited D9300 comes beginning of November (remember Df)... Hopefully mit AF-On button...

Hope so - D400 16mp should have come out before the D7000 all those years ago followed by update before the D7100.

Anyway this Canon camera on paper looks good...

James Booba: As a 7D owner the 7DII is for me the reason to say goodbye to this company for a while (after 16 years).

Looks like a good update and within time the price will be very competitive.

jukeboxjohnnie: WTF! Apparently this is going to cost £1800!!!! You can get a 6D for £1000 if you try who in their right mind would buy this over the 6D?

After few months will be close to the £1000 mark.

Good for Sony E-mount the leaders of the mirrorless market; just need the A-mounts updated today and Sony could / or is quickly going to come no 1.

I like it and the price after couple of months will be shy over £1000 - a good buy.

I like it, on paper excellent AF, and higher Iso and good pro body in an crop body - shame Nikon didn't do the D400 (yet).

turbsy: What is with this crying for 4k on a still camera?

It is available on Panasonic GH4 and Sony Mirrorless A7s (external) so why not ? - may not be possible to operate under safe tolerances, e.g., heat, etc.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1531 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.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)
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...
