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.
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 sameeven 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.
RPJG: Question from a dummy; what is the third-from-the-left set of numbers on the barrel?
Sorry I had not seen Silenus reply.
Johannes Zander: Canon and Nikon in one bag! Is that legal?
Offcourse it is legal. As long as you use the Nikon to make your pictures.
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.
Now I know for sure. My next camera will be the D800 and although this was made with the 24-120 I'll take the 85 mm too.What a pictures. Wow!!!!!!
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.
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.
Apple never asked a costumer what they should put in a phone. It is still the most sold phone when looking for the model. And that is for each and every model from Apple. I don't think an other camera will change that. And within one month we can see what the new iPhone does in sales figures. We can see if there is an other phone model with all the called specs, that even comes close to this figures.
With the Trancend card you can upload NEF files to Google drive on your iPad. The files are then kept till you reconnect to the net and then the NEF files will be uploaded to Google drive. If only the iPad had more WIFi connections. Just saying.I will test the possibility to upload to my computer direct. That is with the NEF files.
seri_art: Can you shoot RAW + JPG and have the card transfer only the JPG files?
When using the Trancend card, you can browse the jpeg files and leave the RAW files. When in the view mode, only the jpeg files will be uploaded for viewing.I can upload the raw (NEF) files to google drive. These files are kept inside my iPad till I reconnect to the internet. Then they are uploaded to the cloud.
In an effort to make the eye fi card the best in this article the writer sums all the plus points. Added together it looks it is better than a special wifi transmitter that costs hundreds of dollars (ponds, euros, yen) Sending 3 pictures to different devices, will take so much time you can't view one, because the apparatus will constantly be busy transferring pictures. I wonder how long it takes to send one RAW picture from a Mark III to a laptop with the eye if card. In my Nikon I have a Trancend 16 Gb card in slot 2 and I use it with my iPad (4gen) to see my pictures in basic quality. It works great. In the first slot is my 64 GB card, where I save my RAW, or should I say NEF files.
I think both the cards, eye fi and the Trancend are not for pro shooting, but can add an extra dimension when sharing pictures.
I think I never scan make pictures like those, because I'm too old to go to the Serengeti. But I do love these pictures. I do realise I can see pictures my grand parents never saw, or could see. I must be a lucky guy, to live in this age.
They used to make good phones. Now they are concentrating on poor compact camera's? Why?Or do you still think the more pixels the better the picture?
