Apple was and is always over priced.
Android works for me at a much better price.
little al: For photographers like the late Cecil Beaton - "posh, but not quite posh", I think this camera would serve as an excellent passport and key to the palaces of the wealthy.
Understood...but he Hassy logo on the camera has no track record.
I don't think so. It is too plastic looking.
Is that a 'filmy' substance on the lens hood or is it smugged?
I can understand the 'Leica mentality'.
I don't see any possibility for a 'Hassy mentality' for a camera like this,a re-packaged consumer camera (although one of the best).
Nikonworks: I upgraded to DXO v8.2 but my Expert Film Pack was not upgraded from 3 to 4.Does anyone know why?
Dxo's web site had no info on this issue.
Furter clarification:I just noticed a link to activate a freeFilm Pack 4 31 day trial right in my DXO program.Open DXO then click on Help then 'DXO film Pack'.I did not know this link was there when I updated to v8.2 DXO.
Thanks for the replies
I live by DXO now that my D7100 with the kit lens produces detail I still can not believe and that you would never see in the Jpegs.
Also works great on my P7700 images.
28 photographers seems to be alot of photographers for a one city newspaper.
How many of these photogs were published on a day to day basis?

Keith Reeder: You clearly don't have a clue about DxO Optics Pro, Reilly - if you simply leave it to its own devices it will provide almost "perfect" conversions without any user input; and any work that needs to be done on a given file is at least as easy and intuitive to do in it as in Lr.
I use both Optic Pro 8 and Lr 4, and - without question - it is night-and-day easier to get an excellent image out of the DxO application than the Adobe one. Lr's advantages are its highlight recovery and local adjustments, but ease of use? Inherently superior IQ?
And - good as Lr is at high ISO - it's kicked into the weeds by Optics Pro, and here too, Optics Pro gets it right without any needs for user input.
I agree. Said better than I could.
joe6pack: Is this suppose to be something new? Isn't Eye-Fi suppose to upload photos via Wi-Fi? Didn't Eye-Fi support Direct mode long ago?
SD card uploads via Wi-Fi + Device with Wi-Fi = photo on device???
The real answer is they communicate from the card to the tablet via wifi-fi as an Ad-hoc network as Steve above mentions.
The 'New' as I read it is you no longer need to set up the Eye-fi card on your PC.
I am wrong the video shows PC is needed to set it up.
I guess the only thing 'New' is the camera no longer needs to be 'compatible', they work in all SD cameras?
tjwaggoner: I think these work without needing actual wifi. The phone app will create a network with the card anywhere. I could be wrong but did you not need wifi with the old cards?
No, once you set them up they communicate with your tablet/phone via the Eye-fi App, you have no data usage (unless you are going to the cloud/web).I do this often in basements where no Wifi signals are listed as available , except my Eye-fi card.
Note: Your following statement can mis-lead readers because the 16GB PRO X2 card also wifi's images to my android tablets on a daily basis:
......"For those users who prefer to edit their pictures on a computer Eye-Fi still offers the "traditional" Pro X2 16GB card, which offers wireless transfer to PC/Mac, RAW upload support and optional cloud backup.".....
The new Mobi cards do seem to offer the big advantage of not having to originally set the Eye-Fi card up on a PC.
I lost two Eye-fi cards by leaving my accessory bag in a park while on vacation. I 'punished' mysself by not buying replacements.Now I can use the Mobi (non-PC set-up) Eye-fi cards as a good excuse to replace the two I lost.
This offers a false promise of image security.
My Eye-Fi wifi SD card enables me to have my images on two separate devices, not one device with one set of contacts, one toggle switch, etc.
I have an SD card with its sliding 'Protect' lock tab broken off, it is useless.
So is a mirrored CF card.
lolopasstrail: So the Nikon P7100, the 7700's immediate predecessor, is reviewed here and is dinged for its optical viewfinder. Not praised because it at least has a viewfinder, but has it listed as an actual con.
And now the Canon's optical viewfinder is praised here as a benefit.
Which means DPReview is comparing Apples and Oranges with thier stated preference of a viewfinder.
Thier bias shouts that this comparison should be between cameras both with or without a viewfinder.
Also Nikons CLS makes the P7700 the professional's compact.You can take my word for it.
I do the same thing with PhotoPerfect at a much lower price.
