Hey Nikon com'on up here to Canada.... we have Community College Programs that have 2nd year Co-op students that can produce better than this.

What the hell is Nikon thinking !!!....seriously Nikon just open source your ADL algorithm so real programs like Lightroom can include it and be done with this.

I think you've explained it Richard....it would never even occur to me that any company would build the JPEG processing engine of its entire APS-C lineup around an algorithm it doesn't own outright.

In reply to:

Stewart McKInlay: I assume this software can interpret every proprietary detail from a NEF. HOWEVER, it is clunky and unusable! If you use Lightroom or similar why would you bother with this very poor first version of this software.

....I shot RAW but still turn on Active D-Lighting and unfortunetley Lightroom can't interpret that....can be simultaed, but its a minor pain.
Depending on what I am doing, I can sometimes get a pleasing edit quicker with CNX-2 than Lightroom, but go forward LR it is.

.....I just wish they could get tolerances and qc of regular DSLR gear more precise.....seems the whole sub pro camera industry is madly off in all direction...... instead of doing anything truly good....they do whole bunch of things half baked.
....well except for Olympus, the newest m4/3rds stuff seems well thought out (grudging admission), but I'm confident they will implode shortly as per past experience.

I just can't understand the price, especially when you add in an EVF.......what is the target market ?

Nice camera ......but where I come from 3 k will get you two Oly Em-5 & 12-50mm kits .

....well by and large the journalistic quality of reporting has been in the ditch for quite a while....so now the photographic quality will follow....all very sad

Many of you are total idiots that fell for the headline just like the writer wanted you to. Want to hear the statement in context? It's completely harmless.

I did listen to the complete statement and chj is correct....completely harmless....I should not have assumed this site is correct.....shame on me for jumping on the bandwagon......I was completely ignorant

"Part of the thought experiment that gave rise to this new product, the new interface, the terabyte, was a decision that we would not have Flickr Pro anymore. There's no such thing as Flickr Pro because today with cameras as pervasive as they are, there's no such thing really as professional photographers ... certainly there's varying levels of skills but we didn't want a Flickr Pro anymore, we wanted everyone to have professional quality photo space and sharing."

Wow, what an insult! Aren't you embarrassed that you fell for the "drama" that the writer of this article (and others) have tried to create with an out of context quote? Of course the writer didn't provide a link to the full statement.

I did listen to the link you posted and you are completely correct the headline when put in the context of her statement is completely harmless.

.....frankly I expect better in a headline/news article here.....guess I should not assume this site is fair.....shame on me.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1853 comments in total)

For Hobbyists may not be a bad thing, if Pro's are P.O. as they should be.
Perhaps Nikon will update Capture NX2, Canon the same and perhaps there will be again be some robust choices again for advanced editing. Microsoft's old Digital Imaging Suite 2006 did everything PS Elements ever could (and easier) and some advanced things as in PS full.

....don't kid yourself .... if Adobe customers let them get away with this ridiculous gouge Lightroom is next.

The Image Quality for Nikon JPEG's looks top notch....better than my D5100 for sure....takes a Nikon standard SB-400 mini flash to boot.

My only quandray is the price.....for $1,000 I can buy a really nice lens or just about a D7100.

Ah....Laos.....one of the few remaining sources of naive population that can be had for pennies a day.

Heck maybe Ashton Kutchner will get a raise from all the savings.

Perhaps not.... I'm sure Nikon's still hurting from the clean up costs/ environmental damage they were held accountable for stemming from their brilliant decision to a build a factory with numerous chemical, etc. in the flood prone areas of Thailand.

In reply to:

sportyaccordy: 4/3 and Micro 4/3... man people love to be ripped off. APS-C prices for down to less than 1/2 the sensor area and no added portability. I will never understand it

yabokkie....what are talking about ...?

m4/3rds was/is not my cup of tea but output quality from m4/3rds is good...high ISO was bad... simple as that.
"APS-C SLRs are worse than 4/3rds" ...In what way would you say ?.

"a new APS-C mount for Pana".....whats the basis for this ?.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 4, 2013 at 15:30 UTC

It amazes me how a rightful act can be twisted in some way to vilify this guy.

....he could have done it quieter, he was a mean manager before he got to Japan, he disliked baby seals....blah, blah, blah.

Think of your own career, have you been perfect ?....if you haven't does that nullify the good things you have done?

Woodford did a very good thing.

In reply to:

neo_nights: Perhaps this sensor is from Sony and the D3200 is from Aptina? That'd be weird (using sensors with same resolution from different manufacturers), but we never know...

Also, am I the only one who finds it weird that a camera of this level doesn't have a dedicated ISO button?

....whats even weirder is no pixel mapping this level & above

Dam you Nikon....I bought 2 - D5100 because that was it....no more MP for me.....but the AF points & improved Auto ISO alone are worth the price of admission.
