  • rumor is a J5 will be announced at CP+. i strongly suspect they'll be gauging reaction to this new model before deciding which technology to advance in a V4 later in the year. stay tuned.
  • sometimes passionate arguments leads to insult, and get everyone off track. especially if a subject has been flogged to death. i really appreciate your contributions to keeping our debate ...
  • my money is on Nikon figuring this out. however, even if they don't, the bargain cameras, high performance, and excellent glass should return many times the money I sunk into them. YMMV. i'm not ...
  • Has anyone directly compared the IQ and ISO limits between Nikon-1 & Sony / Panasonic 1" cams. IQ and ISO limits are not just about sensor tech, but also about how one uses the sensor, and how one ...
  • if that 1 stop were retrievable with a sandbag or monopod ... yes i wouldn't call it very significant. or larger. if you're simply saying you welcome any improvement to the current sensor ...
  • sensor tech, our optical options, camera performance — all contribute to whether we get a usable image or not. a monopod can add a ½~1 +EV to any sensor you may feel you're disadvantaged to shoot ...
  • well some of that trade-off may be a higher cost for Nikon, which most people here agree is already too high for the value returned to it's customers, and/or it may affect AF performance — which ...
  • unless i'm mistaken, i don't think i discarded anything. i simply stated it's my belief they may not be a pre-requisite to better imaging. whatever "better" means. with good technique ...
  • generally because the benefits of Sony's improvement to the 1" sensor is not nearly as significant a benefit as if you were to jump to a 4/3 or APS-C sized sensor. it's fine to seek refinement, ...
  • when dirt and grit starts to affect performance, it's time for a CLA (cleaning, lubrication, adjustment). you can learn to do it yourself, or pay the going rate (around here $60~$100). but beware ...
  • if these things appeal most to you, you are a good candidate for a bigger camera. you'll need to be more creative about how you conceal your camera, or manage it's size and weight, and it could ...
  • indeed, it is. horses for courses, or use our creativity to make what we have work. :)
  • the N1 sensors are 10MP; 14MP; 18MP. sure there are limitations, but if you tried one in good light ... it's a top shelf performer. also, easiest 800mm (equiv) i've ever handled in the field. a...

  • the combined synergy from your front page ad sponsoring the sale of the Nikon D750, along with the ab-fab editorials, tied to quotes by Nikon execs as to how successfully it was received — sucked...

  • sharpest mirrorless super-tele zoom: nikon 70-300mm Cx

  • to those with the FORTUNE to shoot Tri-X or Delta 3200 for many years — grain, noise, or diffraction were not a crime. just say'n it depends on the intended outcome. we can live within limitations ...
  • since we're talking about the capture end, opportunity (good fortune) and creativity trump skill (technique). technique and gear are simply refinements. at the opportune presentation end, good ...
  • an excellent summary.
  • if Manfrotto built a competitively priced arca swiss line as good as some of their asian competitors, they wouldn't need to resort to these high margin gimmicks to stay in business.
