Hauer: Good initiative, Nikon!
Yes, it could be considered a "bright spot" with Nikon service.(sorry)
Works pretty good but details can get really smudged when there isn't enough information to interpolate.
MS is trying to gain a foothold in this evolving tech market. Very recently they announced a pretty massive layoff.
Ikea commercial :)
fmian: Quite disappointed to see such bland choices. Number 6 being the one exception.Most of them leave me with a 'Nothing much to look at here' feeling and a lot of technical nit picks.I'd really like to be able to say otherwise.
Wish I could vote down your comment.
Looking at the D810 vs D800 (non E) RAWs, the D800 seems a bit sharper and (of course) suffers less moire. Very noticeable in the etching to the left and other places of fine detail around the test scene.
Nikon N1 system. I like the cameras but not completely satisfied with the image quality, especially with what can be had with the Sony 1" sensor.
I like the growing N1 lens system. The lenses are fantastic and make up for what the sensor lacks. The original kit lens is the weakest one and it is still better than most other kit zooms. Perhaps the lenses are the N1's saving grace.
akophoto: Yet another half baked tiny sensored bridge camera that will fall apart above 200iso. 200k view finder! No use at all...
Why do they bother anymore? CSCs have large sensors, the better bridge cameras have large sensors.
There is no place in modern (proper) photography for crappy 6mm wide sensors anymore (other than in a smart phone)
I agree but these are for people who's phone cam can't zoom like this camera (which is any phone cam). These people won't spring for a nicer camera. Since these things sell, manufacturers with offer them. I don't care for the tiny sensors either.
I need to get down to Cinci and check out the current library. I've never seen a large library. All of the branches around here small and somewhat disappointing in collection. When I look at my real estate tax bill, I see I am paying for it whether I want to or not!
I'd like to get back into reading as well. I haven't read a book in a couple of years.
Decent image quality from this camera. Those super zoom cameras with the small sensors generate images that look like your shooting through a murky veil. This camera has contrast and clarity. I think this would be a great travel camera for someone who wants a wide range of zoom and no extra lenses to fiddle with.
This makes for a really nice travel camera. It makes fine pictures and the lens is fast and sensor low noise for when the available light is weak.
I do have one concern. The shots using the long end of the zoom are rather soft.
0MitchAG: Damn, that house is cheap af!
No, just advertizing. Note the price said "starting at". The house shown is probably 2x that price.
The large open structures look very modern for their age. Note that he uses large format cameras which should have the digital geeks up in arms.
Just for fun, I copied an image and sampled it down to 6mp. It still looks very watercolor-ish and soft. At 3mp it starts looking quite good. At full resolution, this is the worst I've seen. While I realize that some people would actually want this camera, it is just too much of an image quality compromise to have 16mp and a utra-tele zoom.
capanikon: They look good. Nikon's doing a good job with the 1 series. I think 18mp is probably too much for this size sensor, however, yet I understand Nikon is probably under marketing pressure to juice the megapixel count up higher regardless of whether or not it's a good idea.
I'd say the 18mp sensor is too much for the 10-30 lens. The 11-27mm lens would be a better match for the V3 although it lacks VR.
Looks good but it is clear the 10-30mm kit lens (the weakest in the line-up) can't keep up with the new sensor. High ISO looks amazing for this sensor size. I would have liked to see some architectural shots at base ISO with a better lens.
how did you get the polarizer to work so well with the sky on a wide angle lens?
I'm very glad to see them do this. As time passes, art can deteriorate and colors can shift even though they do their best to preserve it. Having an image can allow future generations to enjoy the art even if the original is lost to some catastrophe.
Some of the images I viewed let you zoom in pretty tight. Perhaps closer than they would let you view them at the actual museum.
The search function is literal. If you misspell the artist's name you get no result. For example, Vangogh returns nothing, Van Gogh returns results. Another thing, it seems to include results unrelated to the artist.
JEROME NOLAS: Lytro, the worst IQ in digital history doesn't want to die with dignity just like Nikon 1...great work comrades!!!
I'm glad to have a Nikon 1. It focuses fast and accurately on what I wanted it to the first time. No need to refocus later.
What are the advantages of the larger sensor? Some I can think of:
Larger Pixels for low noise. The old 645D wasn't that impressive at high ISOs, but this new sensor sounds very interesting.
Smaller DOF for artistic effects. Hopefully Pentax designed the new lenses carefully concerning Bokeh quality.
Smaller apertures before diffraction blurring is noticeable.
Probably others I'm not thinking of.
