regehr: Quick question
All the specs say 1" and then state 13mm ish sensor
1" = about 25mm making this sensor about the same (a little bigger) than my 60d.

All the reviews seem to indicate that this has a smaller sensor than a G1X or aps-c dslr.

Am I missing something about the measurements of this sensor?

Hglen can you give ore detail? and are all sensor measurements "exaggerated" in the same way ie "full frame" etc

PHOTOboy73: Face and Nipple recognition?! I did not see that, that is pure genius. If a camera had that mode I would be first in the line. I agree with these guys in London it is underwhelming and has no inovation.

Sorry that makes no sense, here is the link:

@HowaboutRAW - How can you not see they are clearly saying that Nikon are holding back technology for profit? It is obvious that we no longer need two Cameras (D4 and D4x) to do the job when one chip could easily do both tasks , Hasselblad and others have accomplished this by having a large chip with a reduced quality stetting for low light/low noise/high speed. Plus I am convinced that voice control would be very useful to me. There is no room on the modern DSLR body for more buttons. Nikon took off the AE button. To me the idea of saying ""lock exposure"" with your eye up to the viewfinder would be amazingly useful. My iPhone can understand voice already with 100% accuracy, why not my camera? Nikon are they best out there. I can remember when the F4 came out it was a revelation, filled with great ideas and new tech, the D4 is a joke by comparison. I do not care how much technology is used to convey my ideas into the camera, what I personally dislike is excessive automation.

therathman: I have a D3s, and shoot in low light. It will take some convincing to make me believe this is better. Echoing some of the comments - the 2 different card types and lower battery life are definite minus'. While the D4 seems -video capability - conspiculously absent is it real time auto focus? Or the quasi-autofocus of the D3S? What I expected - the auto bracketing - let me set the auto bracketing to automatically use the continuous high or low shutter release to take the photos. (action sequences). I will want to see a serious Pro sport photog review of its performance. What does a low light action event shooter want to be able to do? preset as much as he can then focus, compose and shoot, otherwise he misses the action. Let me state a min shutter, and aperature range, and say where the guidelines should be for shutter. It picks within the range to capture at the lowest ISO in can preserving guidelines. Some - but not all is possible with the D3s. we are almost there.

The parts I found genuinely fascinating were their suggestions for very sensible future features that are not even being considered at all by existing camera manufactures.
a)voice recognition, while shooting.
b)the idea that the LCD could use facial recognition to tell if you were looking at it and turn on or brighten up (i think this is genius not just for cameras)
c)the camera should take two frames in the same one shutter actuation to make a HDR type wide latitude image.
d) huge rear LCD – touch screen.
These guys are smarter than the whole camera industry put together. I wish they could make that camera!

"the Wrong Camera Too late!" These guys from London pull no punches in their black ops review, but I am amazed by their suggested improvements, Nikon should hire them:
