Justin,, I actually thought this was better than my capture of the owl.
The photo tells a power full story.. :)
I have to say this was a great capture.. well done..
Thanks Guys for the kind feedback..
I don't get it.. Been waiting for Nikon to Release a compact camera with crop or FF sensor like Sony with built in view finder and flash to compliment my D800E on days where I don't want to carry the big SLR.. I also wanted a camera to be released before they stop support for the Capture NX2 with Viewpoint Technology. The camera looks good on paper,, but need a bigger sensor and built in View Finder, NFC and Wi-Fi .. Common guys get with the program and listen to what your consumers want. The new sony A6000 really shines now as a second camera for me.
Thank you Barb.. appreciate your kind comments.
Nikons FAQ on Capture NX-D is clear.. This is not right.
Q: Do you plan to include U Point functions (for portional editing) later?
A: No, we do not plan to include these functions. We are looking into the possibility of being able to open and display images to which effects have been applied using U Pint functions for support purposes with future versions.
Q: For how long will support for Capture NX 2 continue?
A: We will continue to update Capture NX 2 as needed to add support for new cameras until the official version of this software is released. At this time, the official version is scheduled for release in summer this year. We will no longer update Capture NX 2 after the official version of this software is released.
The Mick: Hey Arsen,That is an outstanding photograph! Love the details and especially like the lighting on the wings. I can see why this one speaks to you. ;o)Regards,Mick
Thank Mick.. I was able to get the wings light up because I was the only photographer that day to use a flash. But the sun also highlighted the wings.. Everyone thinks flash is for indoors, but its better for outdoors..
Just Call it Capture Dissapointment.. Do not replace Capture NX with this crap.. Just enhance the current Capture NX with some masking, Masking toolslayers and plug in for Nik Software.. Also make it faster.. Thats all we want.
Very Nice capture.. love it.
This is not NX2 replacement, should be viewnx or something else. I will be very upset if the U point technology is not incorporated or supported in the future Capture nx.. I just love the results with Capture NX2 with Raw files vs Photoshop, lightroom or anyother programs. The U point technology with Nikon raw files is what makes this product stand out for me. If the new Capture NX-D is going to be like this, please continue to support the current Capture NX2.. I am fine with it.. Just update the program as new camera's come on the market to support the raw files.
Thanks Ed,, from my series of pictures I took of the Bald Eagle, this was my favorite, but friends and family liked my other shots. I guess we all have an image that speaks to us..
Arsen: I have been waiting for this review and had a feeling that it would do real well.. I needed a second body to compliment my D800E and only wanted a camera without the OLPF because once you use a camera without one, I can't imagine using one with it. This is a nice camera to take with a small lens and get excellent results when I want to leave the big brother home.
The RX1 is a killer camera for the size. The D4 is great for sports. But for pure resolution , dynamic range and IQ quality, for me the D800E is amazing. My point with OLPF was that so many people are worried about moiré, but the truth is that I have not seen it in any of my images over 15,000 shots. We spend top dollars on tack sharp lens and without OLPF gives us that extra sharpness and no pp sharpening needed.

Well done.. Love the color of the trees.
As Z10 Owner, I can tell you that the photos are just above average.. But as a phone is trully impessive and powerful mobile device. The speed, multi-tasking, the Hub the browser is what makes this phone stand out. When you first pick it up, you think its an Iphone, but after 3 days of use and figure out all the advanced features, you appreaciate what a great OS they have created. Many blackberry users don't buy it for the photo capabilites, they buy it because its a business phone. Nothing can replace an SLR camera.. nice little point and shoot for sharing on the Social media is perfectly fine.
Great product, I love using this for my cataloge of files, and viewer and Great for quick edits. So fast and easy to use.. I use it to launch Photoshop, Nik Software suite, Capture NX2, Ligtroom, Photomatrix and also has a great batch resize, rename capabilites.
MarioSS: Very nice!
Thank you Mario.. :)
Congrads.. stunning subject and picture.. well done.
snow14: No optical low-pass filter at this level of the market ? Most people in this market segment are amateur whom want nothing to do with moire and the extra time required fix it in pp.
After owning the D800E, I can't imagine buying a camera with a filter. The moiré fear that people put in our heads is crap. I have shot over 12,000 images so far and never came accross it or atleast i noticed it. Because this body has no low pass filter, its on my list as a second body. I can see some people who don't own this camera would say that.. I know all my friends thought I was crazy.
