On Nikon releases Capture NX-D 1.0.3 and View NX 2.10.2 article (42 comments in total)

I need to add my rant against this piece of sh*** software. If i realized how bad it is i would had never went the D7200 way. This crime of shooting NX2 in the head and together many users like me who were counting on it and instead give this piece of cr*** that is impossible to do professional work with , i dont know, sounds like "f** off our dear Nikon client we just couldn't care less about what you do with our cameras."

I wonder if anyone in there in the Nikon mess has tried to use professionally this counter-productive software before literally shove it to our faces. To have to work on hundreds of wedding images ASAP and wait for the damn thing for eternity to refresh a setting changed, on a perfectly powerful PC???

Really Nikon ? Are you f*** serious?

And its SO easy: just issue firmwares that make the new nefs CNX2 compatible. Period.

mmr: I'm considering moving away from my sigma dp2q to either a fuji xt-1 or a 7200; is it possible to add any of the sigmas (even the Merrill) to this tool?

On a similar note, how do I choose which lens is on the body?

the DX bodies are shot with the 50 1.4, the FX bodies are shot with the 85 1.4

Hugo808: Is it just me or is the D7200 clearly superior to the D750?

It is just you. Check again, but RAW, not JPG, especially @ at least 400 ISO

D7200 raw looks exactly 100% the same as D7100 to me

Ozgur Ay: I have read that some of us are comparing D7200 vs 7DmII and saying that built-in GPS + 10fps shooting speed + more focus points available in 7DmII makes it a better alternative and blaming Nikon for not implementing those in D7200 as a competitor.

But nobody is talking about the price.
7DmII is $500 more expensive than D7200. (I am comparing body-only price)

So are those features so important for all of us ?
Is everybody willing to pay 40% more for these additional features ?
I do not think so...

D7200 is not the equivalent of 7D MK2. That would be the upcoming actual "D400"

Glendor: Well, this kinda blows. I just bought the D7100 in November of 2014 because the store ASSURED me that the 7200 wouldn't be out for another year. Normally, I try to buy a new body every 4 years. Does the group think that I should jump on this or wait for the D7500 in two years? In case you are wondering, there will not be a 7400 (google the answer).

Please reply with your thoughts!

we dont know anything as to why you bought the 7100 and what is important to you, to answer this. The D7200 has one or two or three very specific specialized advantages - refinements over the 7100 (raw buffer, -3EV AF, wi-fi, video improvements). If none of those is important to you the 7100 should last you for at least 10 years ...

In reply to:

redhed17: "It finds itself in the same class as the Canon EOS 7D Mark II"

Maybe in the marketing it is the same 'class' as the 7DII, but from the spec sheet, it matches the 70D more closely imho.

Sensor aside, and all the Nikon DX cameras have better sensors than Canon, otherwise the 7DII wipes the floor as a performance/enthusiast/Pro, whatever you want to call it, camera.

1. 7D2 is a specialized Pro DX tool that actually is like comparing different things. Pro Build quality its one of the various things 7D 2 certainly is on different level than enthusiast D7200. 7D2 is the Canon version of D400. period.

2. The new AF of 7D2 is still ahead of the D7200 improved multicam 3500, suiting different demands. plus 10 fps for 20mp files its a lot of processing and overall speed, way much more than 6, and way sturdier shutter.

3. d7200 is rather more like the equivalent of 70D mk2

4. the -3 EV at EVERY AF point is at the moment a bit not 100% certain, as its appearing as only the central one has it according to nikon japan site, and somewhere else stated as the 15 cross points only have it. We will know for sure soon.

vesa1tahti: What about high ISO performance in astrophotography? D7200 or 7D mk 2? I think Canons have had better sensors/lower noise in this purpose?

neither. D600/610

Sigma UK says on their site that 150-600 C Nikon mount will be available in May. Now what is more likely? March or May?

justmeMN: In addition, on their D7100, didn't Nikon have problems with oil splattering on their sensors? Strange...

My D7100 though has the exact D600 issue

On DPReview Top Picks: Stand-out third party lenses article (85 comments in total)

I hope this version of the 120-300 is issues-free. I got the previous version after much praising and encouragement from the webs, little i knew, i should had researched more on the failure rates since theres no testing - renting option where i live. Now i know but its too late that version has high issues statistics no surprise you can find it half the price of the "S" version. If you get a working sample great, if not .... i am on a sex ride with Sgma of three countries since April ... the lens just hasn't been able to be worth to get with me on the field once yet.

In reply to:

rallyfan: Except this "protest issue" isn't relevant.

Newspapers aren't going to start printing issues without photographs.

They're going to start printing issues without photographs from "photographers" and "photojournalists."

The argument whether "anybody can take that picture!" is moot. We will soon enough see whether anybody (a) can and (b) will "take that picture."

The answers will invariably be "yes" and "yes" to those questions.

Bye!

as for designers, true designers are the ones who are profiting right now and they are sought after. It is a time that clearing up in the market occurs , competition is real and solutions to the challenges deriving from the financial situation can be given only from people truly qualified

as everybody elses, the payments of every professional might and is become a subject of flexible adaptation, a photojournalist should be called to work for more clients or reduce somehow his prices etc but that would be all

i dont think also, on a different level, that is a functional attitude to act in an introvert / phobic way, "don"t get that, don't get this, don't need that, etc sustaining a self absorbing black hole in the market chains (less demand, less research, less production, less innovation, less jobs etc) that will lead to a total collapse eventually
