On Nikon D750: What you need to know article (102 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jos1974: About the AF points:

in this link you see the D810 and the D750 https://www.flickr.com/photos/49543739@N05/15256922192/in/photostream/

you see here that the Af points of the D810 are a bit wider

Now this is the D750 and the D610 https://www.flickr.com/photos/49543739@N05/15070560949/

The D610 vs D810 makes a lot of difference in this matter
But the D610 vs D750 just a little bit, and it looks like the AF points are cluster in the center of the frame the same way – this is not the case with the D810

So if I buy the D750 because of a wider spread of the AF points compared to the D610 – the D810 would be a better option

Yeah, at some point it becomes a numbers game with out much shooting relevance. Like many shooters I tend to use the center point only and often tweak the focus with manual....sooooooo!

I like the idea of thw Nikon D750, but how in heck is it fair to compare the Canon 6D with it? The 6D is easily had for less than 1500 bucks.

Looks like a nice offering, glad to see Nikon taking a gamble on things like a tilt screen and built in Wi-Fi. Love the Wi-Fi and GPS on my 6D.

Keeping the subject in focus with that bright background at a high frame rate is impressive.

The 400 DO ii looks interesting. Wish they had shown the hood for it, the old one sucks, imo.

mpgxsvcd: As long as people keep buying Canon cameras they will keep making them. They aren't going to quit doing what they have been doing just because someone else makes a camera with different specs.

The real question is how long will what their doing last? Is the DSLR market really in decline? If it is then they could be in trouble because they have all but abandoned the mirror-less interchangeable lens camera market.

Not too long ago DP had an interview with Nikon execs wherein they stated mirrorless just didn't sell well in the US. Possible Canon sees it as a niche market?

Anastigmat: If I am going to spend $1800 on an APS-C camera, I would definitely scrape together another $500 for a full frame. 10 frames per second is nice but I would take better image quality instead because 100% of my photos will benefit, whereas 10 frames per second is only needed once in a great while.

Totally agree. The mk ii is going to be fine for sports and fast action photography. But ff still has the advantage for noise, at least right now.

I just bought my second 6D, this one with a 24-70 f/4 is for 2200 ( at least if canon actually send the 450 in rebates). Since my photography is more landscape and low light think ff is better for me. And at that price would not consider Aps-C ( have one but for the smaller size only).

PVCdroid: "Wishes have been granted in a big way"? DPReview could at least be honest about this camera. I'd be furious if Canon were my preferred brand.

It's almost exactly what Canon Rumors predicted.

MaxTheHorse: Genuine no-troll question. In the UK this camera is being sold for almost exactly 2x the price of the APS-C Nikon D7100. It's only £230 less than the new Full Frame D750. That seems somewhat over the top. What am I missing?
One other observation. Most people agree that both Nikon and Canon are feeling the heat from mirrorless. With the new (relatively) lightweight D750, Nikon at least seem to be going some way to trying to address one disadvantage of the DSLR relative to mirrorless, namely weight. So how come Canon have put out a new DSLR that is not only heavier than the Nikon APSC equivalent but also their new FF D750? As I say, not trolling, just genuinely curious.

It's not THAT much heavier than the older model, which was slower and does not have WiFi.

Put it this way, when I pick up my 6D and 100-400 the 6D seems light compared to when the 5D mmiii is attached to it. Overall I like the balance with the 5D mmiii better.

If weight is you primary consideration, get a Sony mirror less.

The popular 70-200L f/2.8 II or the 100-400L make the weight of the body inconsequential. A camera like this is likely to be used with that kind of heavy glass.

This is a very popular body and am glad that Canon updated it.
Impressive fps and autofocus.

(presuming the Canon rebate comes through).
While the 7D and a 6D are very different animals meant for different types of shooting, the choice of the 6D is obvious FOR ME.

On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (248 comments in total)

Congrats to Hassy sounds like this will be the camera of choice for imaging of finely detailed subjects, like the stated example of museums archival images.

Don't know if any of this will trickle down to the masses like myself or if we need anything like this. Am anxiously awaiting to see if Canon introduces their rumored multi-layered sensor in its next DSLR offering (7D mmii)?

Is the lack of a "red Dot" to keep costs down?

Ok, Ok, just thought it was funny. Have no beef with Leica.

They just need some really good and reasonably priced compact lenses to finish off the concept.

Nice effort by all involved.

Sorry for your experience Kris, its a great picture anyway.
The Internet, like broadcast TV seeks the lowest common denominator.
(Becomes trash)

Don.'t let it keep you from making more great images.

On Updated: Nikon releases Capture NX-D 1.0.0 software article (111 comments in total)

The one reason I might have gone back to Nikon after changing to Canon was NX2. It is a wonderful program to work with because of the control points,

Now...well now I will invest in more Canon lenses.

Frame three is interesting, the others are just ok imo.
Still it is easy to see that much effort went into this series.

You do realize that he is wearing a high altitude suit not a zero
