Sam147: Still prefer the a7s.
Why? Do you prefer 12MP or 36MP for astrophotography?
Prixnobeldefoot: wish they had included a bigger flash, 12m range is a bit short for my astrophotography....
And at dark nights you can use the "autofocus assist lamp" to focus on Orion! Is this lamp with a laser beam?
Frank_BR: Nikon words: "While not recommended for general photography, the D810A is ..."
At a time when DSLR sales are falling rapidly, perhaps Nikon should focus on cameras for general photography, and not on special solutions for a small niche market.
@Frank_BR "DSLR sales are falling rapidly"Can you prove it?
For those people who think that more Advanced Features are coming from Aperture or iPhoto for that matter, WAKE UP! Remember when they released the New iWork with missing lots of Pro Features? After years and I am still waiting for the old feature "Categories" to be back!
krazeyez: What the hell? Wasn't this decided already? How come we have another vote round?
Nikon didn't like the result and we had to make sure that it would be a "tie"?What a joke.
"What a joke" I think you're a joke. And you keep coming back to prove it!
(unknown member): Off topic, but thought provoking.
Why hasn't someone come out with a grip/battery compartment (most of which is empty space) that is stuffed full of electronics which solves the digital work flow problem?
All configured from Smartphone (Android or iApple):
1. Wi-Fi to computer (in sub-directories of your creation (set up through the smartphone....YYYY MO DY HR MIN SEC LOCATION), upload automatically when pre-set Wi-Fi is detected.
2. Identify while reviewing photos which ones to Upload to FLICKR, FaceBook, etc., or E-mail to "x" (pre-set addresses loaded into camera's grip) through "x" E-mail....all through the wi-fi of your smartphone.
Seems to me a device of this type for $400-500 would be a market killer and allow legacy DLRS to become "smart".
I would buy that! I have a D800E and I have the GPS plug all time. I am sure at some point it will break as it looks flimsy!
photog4u: Last chance to vote people cuz if Sony wins this thing instead of Nikon, many here at DPR will be spending the weekend sitting Shiva :)
Seriously people. Stop harassing DPR staff. This is becoming annoying and ridiculous! Why would DPR be rooting for Nikon?? If you're referring to Amazon, then they will make money either you buy Nikon or Sony or any other camera!?? sheeeesh
TN Args: Hideous!
@Josh152 It makes sense to me!
@TN Args It's really interesting (to me at least) how the mirrorless pro users are actually pushing mirrorless makers to add more "bulk" to the body for better handling. Look what Sony did to A7II. It's actually very close to a DSLR body compared to the older version A7.
s_grins: For me it is hard to fathom why DPR decided to review this totally insignificant camera.
It's a PreView not a ReView
GodSpeaks: Who cares?
Obviously you do as you read the article! AND commented!
Papi61: Now all the "tech" journalists in America will start claiming that Apple makes better cameras than Nikon. Even if they don't actually make anything...(they just copy ideas from others and smuggle them as their own. Like the phablet, for example.) But then again, these are the same people who trash the very same iPhone components when used by other manufacturers, and the whole thing is more than hilarious. Apple is a cult.
@Papi61 Seriously man, quit it! You're embarrassing yourself!
Just Ed: It is amazing that the other smartphone manufacturer except for Samsung have such a small share.
It seems you have something against Apple and the US as well! Get over it!
steelhead3: Apple uses a Sony camera module
lacikuss: Good for Sony, they are making the right steps by first pioneering the mirrorless FF technology, then dominating it. Now with the convergence from mirror to mirrorless they are ready to debank Canikon.
This is a longterm strategy that is playing out slowly but flawlessly. Sony already "owns" Nikon now they are going after Canon, and this is happening just watch the next 3 years...
By populating the FF mirrorless lens lineup slowly but steadily they will make switching brands more palatable. For Nikon with its quality control issues and Canon sensor's laking dynamic range the market is ready for a change to mirrorless.
Disclaimer: I don't own Sony equipment at this point, only Canikon in the past 10 years.
I have news for you! You are an Average person and a Fool!
RadPhoto: I am not sure if it's accurate to say "beginner participants" because they never won a DPreview challenge! Not everyone submits here!
Mike, you are an angry person! Take it easy, DPR "cop"!
justinwonnacott: Move along folks - nothing to see here except the same lens and sensor in last year's camera.
I have to agree
Removing the GPS is beyond me!!
yslee1: Where's the hands-on with the stand-out announcement? :P
I've seen the reviewer hands on the camera!
