On Nikon D750 Review preview (1226 comments in total)

Seems like a great camera. Now that they have a wide FX line-up, I hope they'll concentrate on DX cameras and lenses in 2015. They could start with a D7200 with the same body and specs as the D750 (save for the full frame sensor) and, hopefully, some new lenses. I'd love to see the f/1.8 DX set complete as well as some f/2.8 and f/4 zooms.
Hopefully at least half of my wishes come true :)

In reply to:

KonstantinosK: Nice review. I went to the cons list at the end and searched for a "mediocre dynamic range, compared even to older competitors, can lead to noisy images" comment, but no...

There you go, shooting sports won't help you understand what the lack of DR in low ISO is.

Jonathan F/2: I don't get what people are complaining about. There's still a huge market for APS-C DSLR shooters. A D7200 with the D750 body would be a killer DX camera if Nikon chose to release it.

They will most certainly release a D7200 soon though it's still unknown whether there'll be a D300 successor.

Digital Suicide: Why don't they release a new A7 model within every half-year? Like they do with their Xperia Z-smartphones...

Because this way they maximize profits and that's what every company wants to achieve.

bgbs: According to these statements Nikon is definitely not in the leading position, they are in the reactionary position. To Nikon it is about studying the market, and competition, and then reacting based on the findings. Apple does not think like that, they create new demands, opportunities and desires, that is what innovation is all about. But when you react to the demands, not only are you too late to the game, but you're not innovating either, you're only upgrading.

I must admit, Nikon has made innovations in a few areas, for example, the Dynamic Range. Nobody talked about DR until Nikon pushed DR limits above expectations, and that caused ripples in the market, causing every Canon user demanding for more DR.

"Apple does not think like that, they create new demands, opportunities and desires, that is what innovation is all about."
Yeah, that's why the iPhone 6's display is almost as big as my Galaxy SIII's which is 2 generations old now.

In reply to:

Mike FL: Good price, but F4.5-5.6 is kind of slow. No?

It's fine for the price.

In reply to:

W Steffey: Could use a little help from Nikon users. Does this lens qualify as a kit lens?

I bought it as a kit with my D90 so I guess it does.

On ElectriCITY in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, io_bg, on coming second in this weekly challenge. This is a very impressive picture of a storm over the city. You have not only captured the lightning strikes, but also the intensity and power of the storm. The dark clouds appear in various shades of blue/grey/purple, the heavy rain is pelting down, and yet there is a hint of a stunning sunset waiting to be enjoyed once this storm has passed. Great capture! Ruth :-)

Thanks a lot!

backayonder: This could be good news for D300s owner yearning for a D400?

It might finally wake up Nikon !

They're already awaken but are waiting for Canon to release their 7D mk II...

On Lytro announces Illum light field camera article (348 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mark Banas: Oooh, tiny sensor, f/2 zoom lens, 5 MP final resolution, $1500, and that signature body design....

It's the Sony F-707 reborn!

I wouldn't call it a tiny sensor. Sure there it isn't large either but it's a nice improvement over the original Lytro.

Interesting, can't wait to see how it compares to DSLRs.

In reply to:

RichRMA: The 70-300 lens costs 2x what the current DX lens costs for the DSLRs. That's pretty extreme.

There's no DX 70-300mm. The FX one is old and not really sharp at 300mm, it also lacks Nano coating.

On Giotto's launches 'Air' range of lightweight tripods article (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rodger Kingston: Would have been useful if the cost, weight, and size of these interesting tripods could have been translated into figures us parochial Americans could understand.... maybe dollars, ounces, and inches.

What if everyone starts complaining when prices are in dollars and not in their country's currency?
And it is indeed parochial to use ounces, inches and other obsolete units when the rest of the world has converted to the metric system hundreds of years ago.

In reply to:

retro76: It a shame I have used Canon since the original Rebel, but over the years I have watched other companies produce better sensors (such as Nikon) and have been disappointed that Canon hasn't updated lenses such as the 50 1.8, 50 1.4 and 85 1.8, 1.2. Canon is focusing on video, not still photography. Canon has lost me as a customer.

Nikon DO some of their sensors though not the majority.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1046 comments in total)
In reply to:

select: Honestly I was expecting more substantial changes with this camera...

- in the still mode I was expecting more FPS, at least the same as 1DX or even better, an improved AF system (maybe more cross af points?)

- 4k video, higher video lenght and as they said, focus peaking and zebra

- other features like gps, wifi, high resolution screen, SD UHS II card slot

More fps? Isn't 11 enough? The AF is said to be improved over the D4 AF.
Though I agree about the lack of 4K video.
