Rumors on DPReview?
A new low!
kewlguy: cool, silver star for an expensive compact with mushy images...
Why don't you reply to his comment about 'mushy images'?
That is why you are here, isn't it?
Nikonworks: Live View image recording time is outrageous, and for this one issue, how in the word does this camera, which I use everyday, merit a Gold Award?
What is really 'Telling' about the reviews and the reviewers here lately is which posts they decide to comment on and which they stay away from.
So far, no one can dispute my comment about Live View recording times. They can't agree with me because they gave their Gold Award to the camera.This just goes to show the capabilities of the reviewers more than the cameras, in my humble opinion.

I do not see anything that makes it seem fake.
1) it was a square thin box meaning it would land on its top or bottom. any video that was 'upside down' could be corrected.
2) that leaves 4 surfaces to have a 'view' of the suroundings. This woud lead me to believe we saw at most 25% of the video, allowing the chance of the other non-camera sides to have the 'view'.
3) The video is about 3 minutes long, a day has 480 '3 minute segments'. (the shipment might have taken more than a day or two - even more 3 minut segments). We viewed only one of these segments which was edited. So in the can should be a great deal of footage that was discarded.
I don't see a 'fake'.
I see the work of a genius whether it is fake or not.
Brilliant project design, tooling, and execution.
Fantastic and my sincere thanks for showing me a hidden world.
How many comprise your production staff?Went by too fast to count.
What was yout cost per print at the conclusion?
Perfect in every way.
Her beauty captured by the photographer in such a manner leaves no need to say anything about anything except 'Perfect in every way'.
A gross defamation of a lovely women.
The pic caught my eye, but on closer view the diamonds on the lipsare a gross commercialization of the Human Form.
Just downloaded and ran the update.
Now I am ready with my D7100 and P7700.
Won't need gear for a long time (except for that Pro pocket video camera that was reported recently in the News section - sounds remarkable).
Nikonworks: Again, I must blow my own horn and thank DPReview for taking my advice on shooting 'Real World' samples.
Only downer is they took my suggestion and ran with it, without a public 'Thank You' to me.
Thanks for the Real World samples.
Take my word, they did not.
I'm talking causation, not correlation.
Read my post on the issue and you will agree.

Can't locate any link to download Picfari to my PC.
Nikonworks: It seems that DPReview took my advice about 'Real World' samples.This series is very helpful in seeing the capability of the D7100.
These are really good, useful 'Real World' sample images.
You are very welcome.

Nikonworks: Why do most of the 'Real World' samples on this web site all seem to be subjects that do not require a photo release?
Most of the 'Real World' shots we DPReview readers take are not the 'Real World' photos displayed in this article.
Please take this as constructive in nature.Providing real 'Real World' photos would be very helpful to all of us here, both management and us readers.
And it is about time somebody did!
First please note my comment was constructive.
It is not your work or time frame that matters.
It is that DPReview was never set up to capture 'Real World' photos as I stated.
This is the time you should ponder my suggestion and pass it on to the editors or whomever to consider it.
Imagine DPReview giving a lucky bride free photography for testing various cameras at her wedding.There are many ways to take 'Real World' photos, it is just DPReview has to gear up to do so.
It will be helpful to all of us.
Sure: 1 - A family sitting around a table in a restaurant.
A child a few pews in front yawning - widely, ha.
A bride and her groom and then her family
A couple's quick kiss taken by a passerby willing to take your shot.
A dog running toward you and across your FOV.
A newspaper article one does not want to forget.
An accident scene taken under stressful conditions.
I can go on but I am sure you know what I am getting at.
Thanks. For your request for examples.
PS - just got my D7100, from the big A of course.
See. My post in the DX forum for D7....
