On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1481 comments in total)

And I'm convinced that is the reason why the D610 only has 39 points, more to the centre of the frame. I don't need 36 megapixel but for all the other possibilities I want to have on my new camera, I must buy the D800 or now the D810.

HarrieD7000: Great, as an amateur photographer I was thinking to step up to FF. I was putting mony aside to do so, and hoping Nikon would bring an upgrade for the D800's. The upgrade is here. My money not. But at the time I have the money for a new camera, this will be tested, and on the market for a few months. If nothing negative is heard of this camera by then, I buy this one.
From what I saw today it must be a beast of a camera for an amateur like me.

Joe, you are right. I'm looking for a FF, because I love to shoot portraits. I don't think I need 36 Mp, but I think the Nikon 810 is technical the best to buy now. I already have 7 or 8 lenses, of wich 5 FF. Everyone is very happy with the pictures I shoot with my DX but I think I can play a bit more with the DOF, when using a FF.
In the back of my mind is still the Nikon DF, but the lack of a second memory card and no battery grip I really would miss.

On Nikon announces full-frame D810 with no OLPF article (98 comments in total)

Why placing one liners if you don't want to buy this camera?
Even my old D7000 can shoot with the SB900 and SB600 speed lights, up to 1/8000 of a second. The D7000 goes down to 100 ISO, so I could reach the same effect? And yes the X sync for external speed lights only can be done with shutters in the lens, like the phase one and Hasselblad. And even if I have to save an extra year to get this camera, for me (an amateur photographer) it is worth it's money.

Great pictures!!! Made with a thing that was not made to make photographs in the first place.

Perhaps the even put it behind glass, so everyone visiting can see the camera. I would not swap this box for my 3 year old camera gear. It has nothing to do with the brand, because I love the M3, but this is not bringing anything to make better pictures.

I thought this was a camera, but now it seems just a gadget.
And although my saying is, there is no bad picture, only a missed chance to make one (did not invent that myself) it will take much more before I replace my cameras for a thing like this.

In reply to:

jango: samsung nx30 or sony a6000 or olympus e-m10
which one would you buy?
in my country the prices of the three cameras are almost the same
even the lanses price are cheeper for the samsung and most exepensive for the sony

I'm convinced, if you start with a Nikon or Canon DSLR, for the same price, you have a better camera and more possibilities in the future. The quality of the pictures will be better too.

As soon as I need pictures the size of my house, I'll consider to buy this camera. Till that time comes I will stay with a normal DSLR.
I do think this is a great camera for a good price.

On Eye-Fi Mobi Wi-Fi SD card review article (100 comments in total)

My Transcend card is doing the same for less money. I even use a 16 GB card I bought for 40 dollar one year ago. It to is class 10 and does RAW. The apps on phonE and tablet are free and very easy to use.

I'm very interested in prime lenses, but this one will not be on my wish list.

All the "new" things Eye-Fi is introducing recently, are in my "old" Transcend 16 GB WiFi card. Class 10, and costing half as much. I even can send over RAW with that card. What is the fuss about this card. Just a nice gadget when you want to travel light. But not for serious and quick work.

Again an android gadget everyone wants and nobody uses because of the poor quality?

Like most android gadgets this will be shown the first week after it is bought and then life a life in a cupboard.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

After Reading this preview for the second time in 24 hours I'm still not convinced this could be my next camera. I was very happy with the 16 Mp, because this will well perform in low light. The small grip, the lack of an (additional) battery grip. And the rumor it has no AF fine tune, are a big issue to me. I do have some AI lenses and I needed to fine tune them in my. So I could not use them to full quality. Loving to shoot lots of portrait pictures I need to grow another wrist, or buy a D800. I still have to save a part of the money, for a new camera, so I can wait to see if the reviews of the 610 or the f can change my mind.

jyesheen: Hi,
As a legacy Nikon Owner, it hurt. I got D600 on 2012-Dec with high price. and after that, the price falling down.
While I am curious of why D600 price sliding-down so fast, and seeing this new +10 Model. The feeling is bad.
It is only one year. Nikon's way of marketing this D600/D610 is really negative to his image on assured high quality and hurt the customer loyalty like me who purchase D600 with high price.
D600 is my first full frame DSLR, and I quite happy with this Body.
What I learn is not to purchasing new 3C product within the first 6/12 Month after launch.
Hope Nikon can learn from this D600 issue and do be a High-End Camera Manufacture who persist on quality and can be trust on price and quality.

Of your D600 has no shutter issue, you still have a great camera, I would like to have, but still can't afford.

So much fuzz for these crappy pictures? I use a phone to make my calls and a camera to make pictures. These "tests" look to me as a cheap kind of advertisement.
It is a pity DPR can't make more articles with real camera's.
