rurikw: It's nice that they still come out with these old wysiwyg things in spite of pp.

Agree, about to post the same - if you can (and prefer to) do that something without adding new gear, it's not for you.

starwolfy: Am I the only one not to like touch-screen ? I think I am doomed regarding mobile devices and camera. I should try to get use to it... ;)

I am with you(doomed, hehehe). But my case is about cell phone though. It's faster to type using the usual keypad. On the bright side, I like the large display.

In reply to:

Phone: I cannot believe the number of people that argue around the fact of the misuse of the image and how it is not a great crime etc.

If you do not negotiate the cost of something you use with the owner/creator you have no say in its price later if you are caught using it.

You have 2 options ... pay the price asked or go to court and let someone else decide what is fair.

All debate about it is only an image etc or it is not worth the $2000 is also moot as the creator decides the price and you can simply refuse to pay if you do not take the image.

It is also of no importance how many people saw the image etc as the action of misusing the image is in law an absolute action called copyright infringement.

Far too many people are quick to try to downplay the action and take sides as they do not like what the Photographer wrote in the e-mails, but this is just excuses for getting something for nothing.

Simply respect others creativity even if you don't like it, it is not yours to take.

Stealing is crime, we all agree on that. But they didn't do that intentionally. It was a mistake. Then they apologized, agreed to take it down and offer a compensation within normal price range for the photog. Fair enough for me. The attitude doesn't help either.

Now, if only it comes with interchangeable lens.. ha ha ha. Personally, I like wide lens. I even prefer 24mm equivalent. With wide lens, shake is not a serious problem, and I can crop to get tighter FoV. But that is just me.

In reply to:

El Chubasco: A very ugly, expensive, and limited camera. I can't understand how Nikon thought that this camera would be appealing to customers and competitive in the current market.
This is certainly unbelievable.
I left nikon time ago and I don't see myself going back.

As long as Nikon is written on it... hehehehe

At least MS let others use their patents. Some companies enforce patent to shut down others business.

plasnu: Another cheap good camera.

Do we really need to buy more expensive ones?

NEX-6 is also cheap for its class.

Conspiracy to discredit this little camera, hahaha.. just kidding.

In reply to:

mumintroll: This camera NEVER can reach picture quality of Merrill DP2 on basic ISO. NEVER. You don't believe? Check this images and compare with RX1.
Images are in discussion from Frank.

Sigma picture is sharp because of the Foveon magic. Not only over RX-1, but to all Bayer based camera - 5D Mk III, Nikon D800... D800e maybe hold up pretty good, but for the cost of moire. So if you want the best IQ for ISO 200 and below, don't waste money, get the Sigma.

KZMike: For the $$$, I'd like to see a rear LCD screen that can, at least, adjust up or down. Such a large % of my shots seem to 'want' this. Can someone tell me why Nikon,Cannon limit this to their "lesser" bodies?

I think when Nikon eventually put an articulating screen to their pro bodies, Nikonians will automatically accept it as a good thing. Remember the "12mp is enough" argument? When Nikon brought on the D800 with a whooping 36mp resolution, it sells very well.

People resist change. That's a proven fact.

sirkhann: Good one! I love the No-AA-filter microcontrast pop. To fight the competition, Canon is putting a touchscreen on the 70D with YouTube and Tetris on it!

Aaaaand I bet we will see the D7100 reviewed well before the Pentax K-5 IIs, also without AA filter. Right, DPreview? :)

Don't start it sirkhann.. hehehehe

Sony has the fastest live view system, so LV is as useful as the VF. Nikon on the other hand, has one of the slowest LV AF.

In reply to:

Sensor08: Specs say "Wireless Built-In" but I guess that should be "optional".

I think that's some kind of flash commander, using signal from the built-in flash.

In reply to:

DrWhom: While I'm sure that the image quality will be class-leading, and I appreciate the weather sealing and better AF, I'm a little miffed that Nikon still wants us to buy a separate WIFI/GPS module, and that articulating LCDs are for consumer grade products only. Not to mentions that DX lenses have some quality/coverage holes, and FX lenses are too big (for me).

I've been holding on to my D90 for a long time now, and I was really hoping that the D7100 or D600 would be my next move. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of the m4/3 system, with its collection of excellent primes and compact f2.8 zooms, along with excellent video support and built in WIFI (Panasonic GH3).

I can't help but feel that Nikon isn't sure what to do with DX, and that they see mirrorless as a gimmick. I hope that I'm wrong!

@Plastek - DrWhom's reference of GH3 is about articulating screen, that it can be made on a weather-sealed camera, without compromising its robustness.

In reply to:

peevee1: DPR, what does that mean in the spec table: "Wireless Built-In"?

It's like what's in 7D I suppose. It fires "instructions" through the built-in flash to a compatible off camera flash unit, if I understand it correctly.

yudhir: A 58 also mid-level?
D7100 also mid level?
Dpreview?

D400 as the top DX?

It feels good to speculate, haha.
