low light champ (just)
This must be a sabotage act and not a compatibility issue. Nikon firmware actively checking whether there is a third party batterie being used and refusing to operate. They'll probably say it is to protect the user from damaged camera's and they are just doing you a favour.
So the Chinese government decided they would rather have Nikon making J1's in China than in Thailand and told Sakar to make a less obvious rip off.
Frank_BR: Nano coating? Oh, no, another manufacturer who tries to tell other version of the same old fairy tale about lens coating!
It all started in the '60s when Asahi Pentax created a hype with SMC (Super Multi-Coating). Since then, the world has had to hear all this blah blah blah about the magical qualities of the various types of coating used in photographic lenses.
Some acronyms created since then by the fertile imagination of the lens manufacturers:SMC PentaxEBC: FujiT*: ZeissMC: Pentacon, CZJ, TokinaSSC: CanonC: NikonN: NikonSHMC: HoyaUMC: SamyangVMC: Vivitar
And RMC Tokina ;)
Well the 100D based on the same chip got a gold award from dpreview. It is fast enough. It's just not an enthusiast camera, because it lacks physical controls (despite touch screen). Canon wants to profit from the mirror less market while not hurting their dslr business. They don't want people replacing their rebels for a mirror less, but they don't want to miss out on in either.
sono1mito: mah,affermare che le ultime telecamere rappresentano un" grande passo avanti rispetto a 2 anni fa" mi sembra esagerato,certo qualche dettaglio è stato migliorato ma non tanto.Ognuno di noi penso che anche con una camera "vecchia" scatta ottime foto senza inseguire le ultime novità.Ciao
Ik denk niet dat hier veel mensen Italiaans verstaan knakker.
JustDavid: and the Pentax Q?
the q is much more than that
D1N0: Too bad it doesn't have a Full frame sensor.
@(1/4)2doom I will. It's just not there yet :p
I would be bitching when everybody was acting like the Toyota Yaris is an SUV.
I want a big sensor because full frame is closer to the perceived 3d of the human eye. It looks more real to me.
even aps-c would have been better
Too bad it doesn't have a Full frame sensor.
dom33: I'd like to see reviews of 2nd party lenses.
I review my own lenses. Go to pentax forums.com It's full of second party lens reviews.
D1N0: Pics look like they were shot in crop mode, the scale is off.
because i thought it had a 24mp sensor
Pics look like they were shot in crop mode, the scale is off.
Why do the shots of the Nikon DF look more cropped than the other 24mp FF's? look less sharp at low iso and finer noise at high iso? Dit you shoot in some sort of crop mode?
D1N0: Curious Flip flop compared to the beginners camera recommendations where the K-500 trumps the 100D rebel/kiss something. Nikon should really put screwdrive and an Pentaprism in the D5xxx series, then it would be a killer. AF-drive motor sound in the Pentax depends on the lens you use. It also takes lenses with built in AF motor.
Now the K-3 is... so go to war Nikon. There is competition.
The K-30 (identical to the k-50, except for it's looks) is at an even better price point.
Jogger: Why is DPR recycling the comment thread from the other round-ups.. its a bit confusing to have different "news" items with the same comment thread.
Same thing with recycling threads when reviews finally arrive and you think "oh, there are 1500 comments since the review was released 10 min ago".
this is the assembled topic of all round-ups. The ones you want are just one click away.
