DotCom Editor: This "interview" is about as newsworthy as a pre-planned, pre-staged photo op. Not a single hard-hitting question. All softballs. Sorry, DPReview, but, that's not how you do news.
DotCom Editor -Thats a bit harsh, answers were quite interesting and a lot of interesting juicy morsels of information came out of that interview ! Hardball questions just lead to series of "No comments" and that ain`t newsworthy ...
designdef: Makes me very happy I swapped all my Nikon gear for the Sony SLT-A99 Full Frame Mirrorless, two years ago! Looks as if Nikon may catch up in a year or so?
Did you just say : A99 Full Frame Mirrorless ?
Gesture: Hardly exciting, especially at $700, but for Canon I can see where it's "adventuresome." Where's the EVF?
Canon seems to be very conservative with respect to EVF`s in its cameras .....
Nice camera, I can just imagine the beautiful huge high resolution pictures that will come out of this beauty ! Well done Samsung :)
Wow , what luscious specs this camera has ! Time to start saving my pennies ! :)
Vinc T: I just bought a 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro card from B&H for $99. It is around $1.6/GB. This new 512GB card has the same price per GB. A fairly reasonable introductory price IMHO.
By the way, I tried cards of various sizes from different manufacturers and none has failed. And I won't kill myself if this new card fails on me. Have fun and enjoy life!
TBH everytime a card manufacturer introduces a class leading high capacity card the price is always steep .....that is until other manufacturers start to also wade in ,then prices come down to sensible levels. In two years time the price of this card will be more palatable and by then Lexar, Samsung , Toshiba et al will have their own competing versions of card :)
Joe Mayer: Well, in 2003 the 1GB card came out with a msrp of around $330. So now people are complaining of 512GB for $800? Don't get me wrong. I'm happy with my 64GB CF cards from Sandisk for $100 and I have no use for SD nor do I feel like spending $800 for any card, though if I really really had the use and/or need for one I guess I would. Just putting it in perspective. 512 times the capacity (and an incredible increase in speed too) for less than three times the price in a decade. Not too bad.
That certainly puts things into perspective :) Its really interesting to see how things have come along since that time
R Vaquero: This is not the D700 update, it really was the D800
as someone once said..... the 5D mark III was the "real" D700 upgrade and the D800 was the "real" 5D mark II upgrade ....
Frank C.: 1/500s x-sync to 1/250s x-sync to1/200s x-sync
just cancel the feature altogether already
Yeah this trend of reducing the x-sync speeds is one thing that makes me shiver to the bone !
Arsen: I am most excited with this announcement today.. I was looking for a small travel flash.. The SB910 is a great flash, but sometimes I want a small flash, small lens on my D810..
Yeah, this is one very exciting announcement that was a pleasant surprise ! :)
Rooru S: I thought Sony was crazy when they released flash units with LED. But now that Nikon did the same thing... maybe they're not.
Even Canon & Nissin have a flash gun with LED lights for video , its becoming a trend ! :)
mpgxsvcd: Wake me when they cost less than $100.
Pascal Parvex: Bought this version (Rebel XT) for about $350 two years ago, refurbished. Still works well and has a good image quality.
Thats amazing, I also saw one mint condition one in a computer shop and another in a camera store , its gorgeous camera to carry around ! :)
What a gorgeous camera , the layout at the back is amazing and I love the lights. Pentax cameras are getting more and more tempting ! :)
Michael Piziak: wow, 4 articles on one camera in one day.
I think its great that there are so many articles on one camera. These cameras should be analysed to destruction !
tex: Canon, the top dog in camera market share has apparently had little to worry about for the past couple of years or so: the Canon faithful have hardly been stampeding away from the brand. The sturm und drang of certain doom und gloom posters has seemed mildly hysterical so far. To date they could afford their seemingly indifferent (to other makers) attitude.
But if Canon doesn't bring more than a lens upgrade or two, and/or a body tweak or two, to this year's Photokina, then it may indeed be time for the Canon faithful to begin to feel uneasy.
So, big should mean ...big.
Canon has an impressive camera line up even as we speak , if they dont announce any new body I doubt it would even dent their market share ...
Superb image , and the chocolates look nice too ! :)
this is my favorite image , its a superb shot !
Michael_13: There's always something utterly idiotic about these Nikons:V1 had a crippled mode dial this one has fiddly micro SD.
I'd really like to meet the guy at Nikon who is coming up with these "features".;-)
Gosh who would have seen that one coming ...micro SD card slot , thats a surprise , micro SD cards are quite adorable though ! :)
A n d y: No UHS-II support?
I was also a bit surprised by that at first..... until I realized that there is no 4K video coming out of this camera ,so I guess we will only see UHS-II support take off once cameras start shooting 4K which could be in few years time .....
