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.
leschnyhan: This would be a great lens for a D7100. Most zoom lenses don't resolve enough detail to really exploit the potential of the 24MP sensor. I don't own a D7100, but I owned a Sony NEX-7 (until it was stolen from me), which has the same or very similar sensor. Sigma should also make this lens available for the Pentax K-3, which likewise shares a Sony 24MP sensor.
The D7100 is a Toshiba sensor, the K-3 may use the same.
JackM: Wow Nikon doesn't know how to write a JPEG!
No, Nikon's default jpeg are soft, but can be easily adjusted by their picture controls
rfsIII: Awesomeness. Bounce flash is so underutilized and when you hold the camera vertically and bounce the light off a wall you can get beautiful portraits. It's great when Nikon comes out with a great product in spite of themselves.
It doesn't look like it supports the CLS system. Also lower guide number than the SB-400, and it uses AAA instead of AA like other speedlights. All bad. If you want a small flash, get the sb-400 for $119 while they are still around. This new flash is more for less.
SB-400 already does this. For Less.
Adrian Van: Maybe Canon can explain why in a camera of this class priced $1199 USD for body has only one SD card slot.It would be more attractive to semi pros or sports/events users if it had backup file capability, like some of Nikons cameras (or the Canon 6D). Or is this considered advanced amateur camera or for more serious users? Do pros/semi pros want or prefer backup SD slots especially if the video is now getting better in movie servo AF mode?
The specs are impressive though, with its new AF system and sensor, and like the full articulating screen.
@utomo99 I'd be willing to pay $1199, and I did for a D7100 with dual card slots.
Olympus lenses w/Sony sensors. Might be a good combo.
Gotta love Ivar....
