Gary Martin: This is a professional tool, usually attached to big, high-performance and expensive glass. Forum junkies, camera fetishists and gear collectors need not apply.
...but they'll sell it to any doctor, dentist or attorney who wants one.
Jahled: Ho ho, KR got this one a bit wrong didn't he!
Might as well consult the Farmer's Almanac for predictions on photo equipment.
Marty4650: Cynical or not.... the timing of Nikon's new found generosity seems to coincide with several class action law suits being filed.
Pure coincidence (smiley face).
Hopefully it's lost in translation but slogans like this have become generic. He could be talking about an Audi.
tvstaff: It would be nice if Canon did the same and replaced EVERY mirror box in the 1DX. A $7,000 body should not have oil and debris issues. PERIOD. How can Nikon do this for a consumer camera and Canon is leaving it's pros hanging???? If Nixon ' s new D4 is a winner, canon will lose a lot of pros!!!
If Nikon gives Scott Kelby a good enough deal, he'll discover he can't live without one. At least when he switches back and forth his costs are reasonable.
Nukunukoo: Tis so sad that what could have been a great opportunity to turn a defect into a impressive PR coup had they done it months ago, has now turned into a pathetic (really pathetic) move by the Nikon execs to try to do damage control when the ship has already sunk.
Thus effectively turning what could have been a profitable Marketing move into just a wasted expense large enough to hurt their bottom line.
This is almost as bad as the execs' hair in their mugshots. Maybe.
It seems obvious, too. When all else fails, do the right thing.
Nukunukoo: Now if only Canon can release a model with better DR with my PP, I'll be ready to go back to them!
Well, nobody's perfect. Canon wanted put a piece of tape in my 5D3. It was an obscure thing I would never have noticed but once somebody discovered it, it took Canon almost two weeks to contact me, and another 5 days to turn the camera around. Outrageous!
Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admit they address things right away before major damage is done. Someone there is right on top of things. Maybe this will set an example and GM will admit the Corvair really is a dangerous car.
red fuji: Here is a nice camera bag for this camera
At least it doesn't advertise Nikon in large yellow letters like the strap.
Zoron: This is old and outdated....GH4 is the new rave.
--And Sony doesn't even make food processors so we can cross them off. But they all have one thing in common; they innovate with cameras yet don't make money on them.
Just out of curiosity, the battery says "Cell made in China, further processed in Japan". I understand wanting to get "Japan" in there but I wonder what sort of processing they do and why it's necessary.
PrakticaB: Please Pentax if you consider the FF put this sensor! 16 MP are more then enough!
If I were Pentax, I wouldn't want any part of the FF SLR market. And I wouldn't get any, either. Not now, anyway.
qwertyasdf: Now we are heading towards the million ISO mark, is there a major technical difficulty of providing say, ISO 10?
I think the problem is that it would be too easy.
dg90: It´s a camera to knock out a gorilla and making some close-ups.
No chance with a MILC ... a gorilla will drink it in one second!
Right on! Let's see a Canon camera knock out a gorilla!
peevee1: So, Nikon and Panasonic have the same software now... SilkyPix.
And Sigma. And anybody who doesn't have staff with software knowledge. One size fits all.
If this has anything to do with Silkypix, game over as far as I'm concerned. When it comes to simplicity and ease of use, NIK products are one side of the coin and Silkypix, the other.
I had hoped Nikon would work with NIK behind the scenes. Oh well.
UhBre: No U-points, no setting savings, and possibly no Nik addons.Perhaps D stands for Downgrade.
Absolutely agree. The U-point feature is so fast and intuitive it makes NX2 a pleasure to use. Take that away and it's NIK software without NIK's expertise. The new radial filter in Lightroom 5 seems to be Adobe coming around to a similar concept, 15 years later.
I'd say a tilt/shift lens is in order. Or, with that much sky, you could do an enormous correction with software.
Bad numbers for any industry and innovation--at least what we've seen recently--won't fix things. Fuji keeps introducing stuff and has been a big innovator, and look at the results. Sony has thrown a ton of money at this to get a toehold.
The problem is not the lack of innovation, but that the cameras people already own do a great job and don't wear out. The bad economy doesn't help but it points to the fact that cameras are a luxury for most people.
I understand raw capability should made it more attractive to serious users. But wouldn't a serious raw user conclude that to get better quality, one needs to use a camera to take pictures?
