And what if this never happens? People get bored and leave and no photo is taken. Fail, sorry dumb teenager!
instagram photos are web sized results which will look crappy printed bigger than 1.5x2.25.
brianj: Does a photo need to be about some sort of violence to draw people's attention?
Certainly not, it's the stupid editors that are in charge. If you want to see a wider variety of news, and more in depth, read and view NPR/PBS news. They get into more uplifting and positive news instead of just a 30 second "making a difference" on NBC news that is really just fluff.
Oh for the day when "local" news on TV shows only local news and not national or international news. Leave them for the national news right after your show!!
This is deplorable. Time should be ashamed of itself. 95% of these photos are of death, destruction, and war. Year ago these images were not as accessible, now they are on the TV news and internet news website daily. No wonder the world is in such negative shape: images people see directly affect their mental mental condition and so much negativity severely damages and affects viewers brains, seriously. Negativity and graphically violent images are toxic.
mpgxsvcd: Nikon is still the class leader for noise control. However, they all look great.
what is "noise control"? RAW is without noise reduction/removal. If you bring a RAW file into Lightroom, the program will remove all noise in there for you. So when developing RAW files I never see noise.
peevee1: DPR, are you going to fix your tests (or is it widget?) anytime soon? Why at ISO12,800, daylight RAW A7 and A7r are showing f/5.6 1/6400s while D610 shows f/5.6 1/4000s?
nothing to "fix". DPR says they don't just use the exact same shot settings from camera to camera but settings to get a standard exposure amount.
My take? It's the M2 styled like an SLR.
What is the point of this camera? Dials for old people and looks like an old camera with a slim handgrip like a P&S. And just 16 MP? nikon must be banking that people think fewer pixels is better which isn't the case when the image sensor is as large as the 35mm sensor is. And no video? If they really wanted to make it vintage, they would have removed the rear LCD screen. This may appeal to some old people, and then they'll probably get tired of the cumbersome controls and go back to their d800 or d600/610.
DotCom Editor: Either lead, follow, or get out of the way. This guy appears to be leading. Canon, not so much.
leading... to where? Off a cliff?
samhain: Good interview, I like that guy!
But... I wish you would've asked him why Sony has completely abandoned the OVF.
because the OVF is yesterday's technology. It's too old for him! LOL!
'Every six months I want to do something new'
That's the exact reason why I avoid sony products like the plague. They don't concentrate on their products long enough for them to be trusted by buyers. I want to know I'll be able to use my lenses on new cameras while sony clearly now wants to make new things, who cares about the old, right? Geez.
kadardr: Leaked specs suggest it might be specialized for low light-high iso. An improved D4 sensor? WOW
I don't think a camera like this needs to do 10 fps like the d4. That won't be designed into this camera's image sensor. An image sensor is designed for specific purposes and throughputting a lot of data won't be this camera's goal.
Small camera and big lenses don't make any sense since removing the mirror is claimed to be to made the camera smaller. Big lenses make the camera big to use.
Dazzer8888: serious serious cameras...put any lens on it you like with an adapter, if you don't mind manual focus, which many don't.
I won't be selling my A99 and 24-70 Zeiss as that's a different beast, but will be getting an A7R for more experimental stuff like free lensing and tilt shift.
And I say many, many more won't be bothered with manual focus lenses. Camera users have voted with their wallets buying autofocus since it came out to the point where extremely small number of manual focus lenses are made anymore. And those are generally made by companies who haven't/can't do the R&D to reverse engineer autofocus, e.g. Samayung.
Leandros S: Given Nikon's extremely poor track record with its "waterproof" Coolpix AW cameras (AW100, AW110), there may be some hesitation towards this new offering.
Given the fact that the Nikon 1-J3 sells for $250 why are they bringing out more new models? I thought Nikon announced they were to seriously rethink their Nikon 1 line due to poor sales most of which the decline in their sales was due to decline in Nikon 1 sales.
Francis Carver: Must be one of those quite rare silver colored UW cameras and lenses. Once this gets dropped to a sandy bottom -- good luck finding it down there. But the orange colored rubberized skin looks great.
Why should a "rugged" shockproof (drop proof to 2m), waterproof camera NEED a "protective" skin? Please answer me that Nikon!
Wasn't Nikon just reporting they had to seriously rethink their Nikon 1 line? Is this "rethinking"? People are in the water and wanting to take photos... rarely. Not a smart move IMHO.
NickR: $16 a roll?150 rolls or a $2400 DSLR, which would you rather have?
Film, unless you do sports with "spray and pray".
photonius: Well, despite the advantages of dSLR, a nice print on good quality film paper should last a long time. In that time you have to keep buying new technology every few years and copy your stuff again and again if you want to save it into the future. Hopefully some new stable technology will come along. I thought CDs and DVDs would last, but seems they don't. (hard drives fail of course routinely).
Today I'll tell you that my product will last 100 years, and you'll believe me. Where's my proof and will my company be around in even 50 years to back it up? No. It is foolish to feel warm and fuzzy that someone has "rated" a inkjet print at 100+ years when the inkjet process has only matured about 10 years ago. No history, no guarantee. Film prints on silver gelatin are proven.
tinternaut: Only 6MP digital files from a medium format film scan?
That's what comes with "basic" film developing. I'm sure you can pay extra for higher res.
