RadPhoto: Apple only cares about products related to iPhone.
@Funduro @EricCul For now. Mark my world. By the way, I own iMac 27”, MacBook Pro 15”, iTV, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPhone 4 and iPhone 5S. AND a PowerBook 12” to show you how long I’ve been using Apple products!
Apple only cares about products related to iPhone.
That’s a nice feature feature to have
A really good video and tips. Thanks
On a side note, and technically speaking, Morocco is not in Middle East.
Sarge_: To me, you either buy into the APS-C formatted Sony NEX cameras, step down to the smaller M43, or get the RX100.
The Nikon isn't even on my radar (except for the new waterproof model). The Sony NEX cameras are roughly as pocketable (NEX-5, etc) as this V3, and NEX produces better IQ, especially at higher ISO. If video is a priority, I'd look at the Panasonic GH4, and if pocketability/size were a factor I'd have the Sony RX100.
I love my Nikon D800, but Nikon really disappointed me with the sensor size in this camera system, and there's no 'fixing' that, as even if this sensor gets better, so too will the larger APS-C sensors...
Didn't Sony kill NEX cameras?
I am very impressed. And I am a Nikon and Fuji shooter!
OceanFroggie: Technically Sony have some interesting innovations BUT boy the bodies look ugly to the eye.
The D5300 performs as well as it looks. I get WIFI but what is with this GPS rubbish?
You'd DON'T have to you use the GPS! Why does it bother you? I love having GPS. You probably don't travel, so GPS will be useless!
Looking forward to it!
Cycleshooter: Video never has the information density of the printed word, but is cheaperto produce. This is the first step back from what has made this site great.
Man, give them a chance!
Luego: The loud shutter sound is a real turn-off for me. Hopefully Sony will address this in their future version.Listen to this hollow sound of the shutter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmS2fUngz2o:
They will never do that. People complained about it for all NEX system and never happened. You would think it's easier without the mirror!!
Olga Celle: I own a Nex 7 and despite the fact that it is a great little thing, I have to say that Sony never worked fast enough in providing the NEX 7 with decent, semi-pro lens. I am not picky, the NEX 7 was intended as a semi-pro camera. Firmware was never actualized to properly meet customers' wishes expressed in hundreds of blogs. As a result, Nex 7 owners were looking forward the next NEX 7 model; instead, Sony produces the A7/A7R promising a new line of full frame lenses in the near future...Considering that the NEX 7 and its lens were not cheap, this means that those NEX 7 owners who were expecting just a change in camera body are (again) let down. I'm keeping my NEX 7. I am buying a Nikon full frame.
Same feeling. I have an NEX5N sitting doing nothing after I switched to Nikon. I always wantedthem to do what Fuji does with keep updating the firmware with new features if the hardware permits. For example. Shooting 3 frames for autoexposure with only .7 ev!!! That reminds me, I should post it on eBay
Zvonimir Tosic: A good first step taken by a major DSLR manufacturer in building an alternative to a typical and ubiquitous blobby DSLR design — copied across DSLR brands for over a decade, and one that even mirroless cameras now mimic, in a desperate attempt to show 'seriousness' and secure some money.
Like a Leica camera often ridiculed here, or any other quality craftsmanship that comes with an asking price above one brass farthing, this is definitely not a tool for majority of users here. But it is an encouraging thought — something about it must be right, especially in times where everything looks so same, boring and depreciated.
It provokes a thought indeed, be it intelligent or a mindless rant, nevertheless.Well done Nikon.
I agree with you Zvonimir Tosic
Artmonkey: I very much agree with Andy on this one. I was so very excited by all the teasers about the Df but it's the case of so close yet so far for me. What I was hoping for was:● Real Split-D manual focusing● 'Auto' settings on shutter and ISO dials● A return to manual aperture rings● 'Auto' on aperture ring so we can get rid of the PASM dial (Fuji X100)● No horrible locking mechanisms on the dials
I could take or leave the following● A body that wasn't quite so fat● A price that wasn't so mental● Video should still be here, I see little reason for it's demise● Hybrid viewfinder would be amazing (Fuji X100), I'd pay more for that
Damn it, I'm going to design my own camera, I've had enough of this...
You just described Fuiji's. If you actually want to buy a camera why don't you just get one instead of complaining?
vFunct: Mirrorless cameras are junk. They're like cell-phone cameras, with their visual preview lag, but they're not as useful as cell phones because they aren't pocketable.
There are only two useful camera classes: dSLRs and cell phones. Everything else is a useless compromise that isn't as good as either.
There are absolutely NO professionals that use mirror less cameras at a press event. Every press photographer uses either a Nikon or Canon, while the writers use iPhones.
Mirrorless cameras aren't as good as an dSLR or a cell phone, and therefore nobody uses them.
They are junk toys.
@T3 true, but look at the Trey's photo quality lately! most of his work is like snapshots while walking! I think it got in his head that he's a celebrity and started to have a big head. He doesn't want to carry a camera any more.
white shadow: It seems that Nikon has lost its lead in making the best cutting edge digital cameras and is now resorting to make stripped down antique looking cameras to attract die-hard fans of yesteryears.
Do they really think that there are people willing to pay up to $3,000 for a body with basic 70s camera technology which is purposely downgraded not to be able to take videos? Will it have a manual focusing screen for the authentic manual focus similar to the FM2?
I would probably be interested if they would sell such a full frame DSLR for below $1,000 (since it will have very basic function).
@rhlpetrus I agree. I own a D800E and it's AMAZING!
victorenglund: I really liked the X100 in firmware 1.30 but now with 2.0 it really is like getting a new camera. Or at least and updated model. Noticably faster AF, huge improvement to MF and focus peaking! Some companies release new camera bodies for that kind of improvement. Well done Fuji!
You mean like Nikon's D600 to D610?
missingendpoint: On the other hand, you have Sony who won't put out a 1670z lens correction update for their nex 5n. But then they always have been of the mindset that if you don't like what it does out of the box, don't buy it.
Yeah, Sony is the worst when it comes to updating old cameras/lenses
Well said DPreview
thx1138: Shouldn't that be minimum shutter speed 1/16000, not maximum shutter speed which is 60s. Actually you have them interchanged in the specs.
DELETED88781: X-Trans was a very bad idea!!!!!!
@sambomax what are you talking about? They are selling like crazy. I own X-E1 and I love it!
Just so you know, I own Nikon D600, D5200 and Sony NEX5N. X-E1 is by far my favourite image colour and quality!
