On Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue article (174 comments in total)

Don't buy Nikon until they solve this issue. My D800 got oil spots now cleaned but still I got some again. After the Nikon D7000 there wasn't any camera that doesn't have oil spots. Even a friend of mine got the Nikon D4 same problem. It crossed my mind that they use cheap coating sensor. I have a D300 and a D700 no oil spots . The D300 and a D700 got spots but dust spots and removed by the camera itself. I am getting back to them. I even got the D600 a very good camera even better than D800 but too much oil spots and they asked me to replace with the D610 and I got a refund. Now I lost my trust in Nikon. What a pity for Nikon!!! The best way for Nikon is first they have to eliminate this issue if they want success. GOOD LUCK NIKON!!!!

In reply to:

Zoron: ehhmm.....i prefer G1X mk2......cough cough

Its true Canon has the G1X mk2 but it starts from 24 mm and if you have the 6.7-13 you have 16-35 in35mm. that's the difference G1X mk2 it is not good for ultra wide . May be better IQ as a friend of mine got some photos from a display in the show and he told don't go for it sensor good but poor performance

Ivan Azzopardi: From past experience J1 and V1 Image Quality "IQ" is not that good just better than compacts. They were 10mp and they suffer a lot from noise now 18mp?? For small prints they where acceptable. One good point I never went to clean the sensor a good point due to the very small sensor. Hope it will get better IQ. EXT flash same as the dslrs another good point. Now we have to wait and see.

thanks a lot eddie_cam

Ivan Azzopardi: Dust problem is something when you change a lens. I had the D600. I wanted the money back. Since the Nikon D7000 came out there isn’t any camera that is good. I’ve owned the D700&D300& now D800. I had to fall back to my old D300 & D700 best couple. D800 nearly has the same problem as the D600. Even the D4 has the same problem as some friends of mine got it same problem. Now the D4s maybe they fix this kind of problem. It’s a pity for Nikon to be addressed in this way. As I am not a digital artist I hate editing photos. To be a photographer you had to get the right picture straight from the camera. Now due to these oil spots i have to edit them. What a pity for Nikon!!! I am asking myself whether to opt for another brand. Sony maybe!!!

IMO I agree with you but it is important not to rely on photo editing software. Even if it is possible when entering competitions and other you have to submit even the original RAW format so the photographic techniques will not be diminished or end up as history.

On Nikon D610 Review preview (326 comments in total)

Dusted off is nice to hear but I preowned the D600 full of dust the D800 more or less the same. A friend of mine got the D4 same problem. I know the difference between oil and dust. Its a pity for Nikon as doesn't deserve it !! For me Nikon still the best but in this regards I am very disappointed May be the D4s will not have it.

On DSC00051 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (6 comments in total)

It is a wonderful photo but with noise reduction as when you look at it at actual size it is a bit soft. for 20mp is excellent.

Ivan Azzopardi: I think Nikon has to worry about dust/oil issues on DSLR's first. I've got the Nikon D7000, D800 and now the horrible D600...all 3 of them with Dust and oil spots on sensor. When does Nikon comes out with a camera like Olympus M1..dust proof and waterproof! maybe this one! GOOD LUCK NIKON

I am not a jealous guy Sorry I am very disappointed by Nikon. I owned the 3 of them and they all of them had dust /oil spots. I had to switch to Olympus as I know that it is four thirds against full frame but when you take photos and then you have to edit them. I don't like editing. I like taking photos right without editing them. D700 was and for me still the best but I had to sell it to upgrade. I am wishing Nikon to be like Olympus NO worries

Ivan Azzopardi: It seems to be nice but what about the weight would be that of the D800 or D700 .I prefer them a bit lighter as I can use more heavier sharper lenses. The lighter the better for travelling.

The image quality is not the same I ve got the v1 and it is not the same as the D700/800 Fx vs cx. I have back problem that's why I am very concern about the weight as the they reduced weight from D700to D800 and I wish that they either leave the same weight of the D800 or else make it lighter. Leica are far lighter. A friend of mine got it and it is clear and lighter but no af

Nigel I am not saying that the filter will effect the weight of the camera but the camera that will be introduced with this filter for eg D900 will be the same weight of th D800

I think Nikon will learn a lesson from this maybe. I had the D700 very good but heavy + lenses are heavy too, D7000 oil problem ,D800 you have to buy expensive and heavy lenses, and the Nikon 1 V1 you have to buy lenses and flashes for it. Leica are far better lighter and more expensive but that's what you paid . Nikon I think have to change and learn from the Leica not in getting more expensive but in terms of quality lighter bodies and more lighter lenses GOOD LUCK NIKON

I dont think about real or fake as i do not agree with photo editing software unless it is traceable.Some people say it is creativity but i still dont agree. Thats what comes out you cannot determine real from fake not even in competitions magazines and even newspapers. Photography is ruined with photo editing software. Good luck digital artists !!

At last Canon made it. Now it is the turn for the Nikon. I am not sure about the megapixel vs the sensor size in terms of Image Quality.

There is no comparision between the Nikon D800 and the nokia 808. There are some issues concerning a full frame with 36mp regarding image quality . Immagine a 1/2" sensor with 41mp . Maybe it is good but i dought it. If it is good i will buy one. to have a 41mp with you all the time is good as you'll never miss a shot.

On Nikon D800 preview (1118 comments in total)

36mp is good for those who uses prime lenses as there would be a room for cropping. the only thing i am not sure about the pixel-per-pixel sharpness like the D700. I think Nikon has to coach d800e users in order to nearly eliminate the case of moire effect. Maybe the D800 will be the same sharpness as the D700 and the D800e with much more sharpness.
