I`m impressed by the faster capture rate of 1.5 franes per second ! :)
I was amazed by the comment that Professional users wanted lighter lenses ...... :)
DSapper: What about Oil & Dust?
Hi DPReview , this great but were is the D4 review ? The last I read you were working on it .........then err now the D4s has arrived ! Is it going to be the same thing again this time around ? :)
peevee1: You'd think in 2014 a top-of-the line camera would have 802.11ac and double UHS-II slots, not the outdated CF and non-starter XQD.
I also expected that Nikon would have got rid of CF starting with this camera
Is the review for this camera ever going materialize ?
FujicaST605: Most of the critics here have nor even used the card. I have used it at events where we take the picture and people have the option to but. Having the pictures on an ipad for customer review nearly instantly, increases sales.
Interesting stuff ! I liked the part were the reviewer also reiterated the same point regarding customers being impressed.... I guess it looks more modern and hi-tech using one of these cards :)
I like his last answer , a full frame Fuji with an X-Trans would be so tempting.....
Well done Fuji . You threw the hook , line and sinker with this baby !
Light Pilgrim: same sensor again and again and again and again?
If it aint broken ......
digiart: Nikon should be taking notes... This seems to be a gem of a camera. The right mix of analog and digital. Retro style camera done right.
Yeah , this camera sounds awesome ! :)
Wow - awesome stuff, its amazing visualising the changes over time ! :)
Thanks Nikon ! Now every other camera maker is teasing us into a frenzy over new cameras ! :)
Long live CF!
While the State of the Art here certainly isn't affordable or needed by most users, the development of the media means its still a viable technology - a good thing for all current CF users.
When a technology becomes obsolete - the availability suffers & prices seriously increase.
Its similar to the VHS vs Betamax & Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD battle, different companies invested, developed and had supporters for their format...
what is holding back mass production at present is the dearth of devices supporting the XQD card - only one professional stills camera and a few expensive niche video cameras from Sony support the format so demand is still a trickle at best :)
the Powershot N100 looks so appealing ! :)
Interesting , its amazing how this camera is said to have been 4 years in the making yet its sensor is borrowed from the D4 and the autofocus is borrowed from the D610 ! I wonder which bits took 4 years to get right ? :)
wow this is interesting !
GodSpeaks: 30MB/s isn't fast enough.
The BMPCC camera shoots 1080P30 at just under 30MB/s, and 4K is 4 times larger.
You are going to need 100+MB/s sustained write speeds for 4K, unless it is massively compressed, in which case, what's the point.
30Mb/s will be a guaranteed minimum , the card(s) will be writing at way more than that speed, its similar to now were a lot of cards are labelled class 10 but in reality the fastest cards are now writing at more than 3 times that speed .....
JWest: Rather than yet another confusing and ultimately meaningless logo, couldn't we just get the sustained read and write speeds printed on the card? If I have to explain to one more person the difference between SDHC, SDXC, SDIO, class 2, class 4, class 6, class 10, UHS-I, UHS-II, UHS speed grade 1, UHS speed grade 3... aargh!
In an ideal world , yes, there would give just one read and write speed and that will be what you get but alas in the world we live in these memory cards are used in many different cameras made by a diverse variety of manufacturers and that is what has bearing on how fast or slow a card will perform ...
For example camera makers make different classes of cameras made for different market segments with the high end cameras using faster bus speeds and writing data to memory cards at blistering pace while entry level cameras from the same makers write data at significantly slower speeds therefore even if a card maker says its card will give you a stated speed the reality is that will depend on what camera or device you are using ....unfortunately thats the current case
