Been doing photography for literally 50 years and I must say I am getting more disgusted with the industry every single day.
It's not just Nikon!
I've been wishing for a retro Nikon like an FM2 or F3 Nikon digital for years, but I too think this will flop. It looks more like a combination of both and frankly I think it looks ridiculous.
Good example of how Nikon just doesn't get it. I am sure people have been asking for a retro camera like an FM2 or F3 style but this looks more like a false front building like those used in western films out of Hollywood. It looks kind've ridiculous really.
Why exactly IS Adobe keeping customers credit cards on file if all the customers had done is purchase copies of software online? I can see if it's to periodically pay for the cloud crap, but if one just purchases something, isn't it illegal to actually hold onto a credit card number once the transaction has been completed?
The biggest thing Nikon has going against themselves is their own arrogance. They feel that just because they are Nikon that consumers will flock to their products when something new comes out. What essentially happens instead is that people stay away because a lot of these products (the 1 system, the Coolpix A are 2 great examples) are simply overpriced for what they are. Perception is that one can get as good as, if not better than by going with Panasonic, Olympus, Sony, or Ricoh than by spending a few hundred dollars more for essentially the same item from Nikon.Wake up Nikon...look what happened to Leica using similar practices.
Yes but can it do 3d?
>>>>>Every camera in this price range must answer this honest question is it better then the Sony RX100 for the same price ??? The answer on this one is a huge NO .. Another one bites the dust<<<<<
How exactly do you make this determination without ever having shot with the camera? Seriously....the RX100 is a nice point and shoot camera, but I would take ANY of the Fuji cameras over it.
The problem with this poll is that it asks you to choose one concern. If it were only one concern from those listed, I would have no problem responding and I would probably have no problem signing up. However it's all 4, having to repeatedly pay, the pricing, having to connect, and uncertainty. The combination of all those things will force me to move to another solution.
Hey Adobe, you really might want to take a look at this;
I downloaded a trial copy of Paintshop Pro last night. It looks pretty good.
And what happens 6 years from now when Adobe decides to stop supporting CS6 even to the extent that it will not allow you to register it on a new computer? Think this will never happen?
Or what happens down the road when Nikon decides to no longer supply batteries for the D800? Think THIS will never happen?
Hey Framer, your attitude is uncalled for. I have no interest whatsoever in renting software. Do you not get this?
One other comment to all of you who are resigned to using CS6 for the rest of your lives...what are you going to do when you purchase a new camera say 6 years from now only to find that Adobe does not support RAW files from that new camera in CS6? Upgrade to the cloud??
About a year ago I dumped several thousand dollars worth of Apple hardware and software due to similar policies. Tomorrow I start looking at alternative software to process my photos.
This is precisely what has scared me about digital photography for the past 15 years...that one day I will have a ton of photos that are totally useless to me because a software vendor decided to pull something like this.
Maybe it's time to dust off the film cameras.
So let me get this straight...we will be able to purchase a Sony NEX-7 for about $1000 or so, or purchase an unbearably ugly version of it with the Hasselblad name attached to it for about 5x more?
I think the adapter is a good idea. A little expensive but a good idea. No one is forcing anyone to purchase one.
As far as the X100 being a pointless camera...wow. I sold mine to make room for the XPRO1. Not only do I wish I had kept it, but I actually think it was in some ways a better camera than the XPRO1. I'll buy one back as soon as I can.
I am SOOO glad I dumped all my Nikon gear a few years ago. What an absolutely disgusting company they have become.
It would be nice if some of the major manufacturers would begin to realize that it's not necessarily a love for something mirrorless that people like but rather a love for smaller, lighter systems. Years ago the market was dominated by cameras such as the FM2, OM1, AE1 and such. Then came the behemoths like the F4 and then the digital cameras. Why oh why doesn't someone like Canon produce a full frame digital the size of a Canon F1? Tell me they cannot do so and I will say that's a crock. I myself own a 5D MKII, Fuji X100 and Panasonic GH2. The 5D MKII rarely gets used anymore even though its picture quality is the best of the 3. Fact is I would just rather carry around something smaller and lighter. If Canon would replace the 5D MKII with something the size of a Canon F1, I would dump the X100 and GH2 in a heartbeat.
