mpgxsvcd: Nikon is brilliant. They created a new market without investing in new technology.

The problem with this "new" market is that it has a short shelf life

mpgxsvcd: I can't wait till they hack it to turn the video back on. It is probably capable of 4K @ 60 FPS RAW video but Nikon turned it off for now.

highly unlikely, a 4K codec will probably be in about 4 years from now. The camera is probably 1080p@30fps

mpgxsvcd: Nikon is going to make more money off of this than they did with the 1 series.

In business, the only way to make a wrong into a right is to make a bigger wrong

JackM: D610 makes waaaaay more sense. 24mp + video for $1000 less.

at least the D610 will now be known as "the one that makes sense" rather than the "one that fixed the shutter problem". I bet this camera cost near nothing in R&D dollars given the amount of technology re-use. It was probably meant to sell a couple of units to the vain and scare the sensible into a D610

shaocaholica: Why do they call it a lens 'cpu'? Its not computing anything. Its just a rom. Maybe on some models it reports back a focal for a zoom but thats hardly worth calling it a 'cpu'.

Dont be a fool to marketing jibber jabber

Thats not the function of a CPU, a value feedback can be a simplistic as a rheostat that feeds a variable resistance back to the camera. Unless it is a general purpose compute unit that is running some sort of code it is not a CPU, it is at the most complex level an ASIC (a microchip that performs a fixed function without code)
