ritholtznue: Hi Rishi and DPR,Thanks for the quick review. Matching d5500 performance with little trade off between noise vs details is nice. And rebels do 5 FPS which is same as Nikon best crop camera (d7200). Not bad Canon.
Can you please come up with a standard workflow (like exposure latitue and stuido scene) to compare live view and video AF performance. I am thinking, lot of rebel buyers would like to use it for both photo and video (family use). Video performance is also very important in this category.
5FPS with 14 bit Raw and 6FPS with 12 Bit Raw. No need to use 14 bit for action.
But you're right, Canon is better than Nikon. There, are you happy?
D7100/7200 are 6FPS, not 5. Will do 7FPS in 1.3x mode.
I thought they were to about to T99i by now
Glendor: Well, this kinda blows. I just bought the D7100 in November of 2014 because the store ASSURED me that the 7200 wouldn't be out for another year. Normally, I try to buy a new body every 4 years. Does the group think that I should jump on this or wait for the D7500 in two years? In case you are wondering, there will not be a 7400 (google the answer).
Please reply with your thoughts!
There won't be a D7400, just like nikon skipped over the D4...
Oh, maybe not.
JRFlorendo: This is a SLAM DUNK class action law suit, an engineering flaw by Nikon engineers, can't get any easier than that. Nikon just needs to slow down, it seem like they are coming out with a new FF camera every six months, at that rate, something is bound to get neglected. Sony and Toshiba already providing you with top grade sensors, slooow down and get the engineering and quality control right.

FujicaST605: BB - Were you allowed special access or is the interior now open to the public? Last time I was at the Museum of Flight, you could only look from the outside.
Thanks for the update.

A couple of those look like they are from Sandy's beach on Oahu. Huge guts to get those shots on such a shallow shorebreak.
Went to the blog. That's 5 minutes I'll never get back. What an angry worthless endeavor.
Jogger: Its not good enough for professional use and its too expensive as a toy (which is what it is).
Paul JM - Jogger mentioned professional use. This by definition is commercial. The FAA has not allowed these for commercial use:
BTW, I'm an RC enthusiast, not a drone hater. That's why I am familiar with the law.
EssexAsh: "photographer Art Wolfe has built perhaps one of the strongest brands in his field."
Who? Guess his brand could be better. Whoever he is.
I've been to a talk given by Art Wolfe. He maybe talented, but he's not someone I'd want to go have a beer with ...
Illegal to use for commercial use per the FAA
Most of the critics here have nor even used the card. I have used it at events where we take the picture and people have the option to but. Having the pictures on an ipad for customer review nearly instantly, increases sales.
Carlos Ocando: If LR runs slow on a Mac or a PC, then I wonder how will it run on a tablet?, and why would anyone do color correction in such a small screen that has a color space smaller than sRGB?
Runs fine on my Win 7 64 bit PC. Must be your PC.
Jake64: I am going to make predictions: 24 MP sensor, either more focus points ,more cross type or both. Slight body modifications, faster FPS.
And also N8008/F801 and N8008s/F801s, N90 and N90s.
They had to preannounce as they will be spotted at the olympics.
mosc: Don't film Nikons go 1/8000s like the D4 this thing's guts are supposedly from?
@mosc. No. This resembles an F3 or FA. Neither of those went to 1/8000. I believe that ss debuted with the F4.
yabokkie: so this is not rebadging but reboxing.
is the silver ring on the lens just a decoration or really operable?
Go look at an AIS lens, you'll see the silver ring. If you don't know what the ring is, you don't know what the camera is about.
Wake me when they finally make a real digital XA.
