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.
Great Bustard: Outstanding photo!
W Steffey: Better than great photo, regardless of lens used.
Mike FL: Good price, but F4.5-5.6 is kind of slow. No?
It's fine for the price.
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.
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...
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.
Happy April fools!
OBI656: I am comparing this NIKON chart with Sony A7R and I can see, that NIKON is way behind ...
NIKON RAW 50 ASA vs SONY RAW 50 ASA
so where is image quality with this NEW expensive NIKON ....
Why compare boost ISO modes?
Shagwit: Shame we still don't have a review for a 1DX....
or the original D4!
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.
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.
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.
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.
profus: "Another small change worth mentioning is the camera's ability to use the Auto ISO feature while in manual exposure mode. This allows you to choose a shutter speed and an aperture setting and let the camera decide on the necessary ISO. And, because the D4s has an Exposure Comp button as well as two control dials, you can apply exposure compensation so that you get your chosen image brightness, when working this way."
Is this a change? That wasn't possible on D4? It certainly works that way on Df...
My D90 has that as well.
I'm a Nikon user and fan to some point and it was interesting to me to read this interview. However if they really listened to their customers then why there's still no D300s replacement, more DX prime lenses, 300mm f/4 VR lens, a real D700 successor, etc, etc?
io_bg: When are we going to get real dynamic range tests? Comparing JPGs for DR is just ridiculous.
Mr Butler, that's some good news. I'm looking forward to seeing the new measurement system.
Zeisschen: This looks like a very well designed digital camera. Together with the new Fuji and M43 offerings this year marks the end of the APS-C DSLR.
