This is the worst set of samples that DPR has posted in a long time. They do not convey the capabilities of the camera or its lenses in any way. There are no examples of the essence of the 1 series cameras - the 60fps burst capability and super-fast autofocus nor of the edge/corner performance of the lenses.
LJohnK2: - No mask function- No blemish removal - No CCP- No generic clarity slider- No, No, No,
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.
The problem with open source is that Adobe's expensive bloatware is nowhere near as good as NX2 for rendering images or for selective editing.
The failure to support NX2 is a major problem for Nikon. If NX2 is not updated for future cameras, I'll certainly be moving to a manufacturer that does back up its cameras with appropriate software.
SergioSpain: If you try editing files that were already edited with NX2, you have to restore them to their original condition by using the "Restore" command in the "Adjust" menu.
Hadn't tried that. NX-D is even worse than I thought.
Thanks for the warning regarding aerosol sprays - I would never have thought that fire could be dangerous.
ZAnton: Well, basically monopolistic position of Adobe on the photo-software market allows them to do whatever they want.It is time to try to uncover my Nikon's Software and look closer on the other SW.
You're in for a treat. NX2 is infinitely better than anything that Adobe has managed to produce. Hint - the Selection Brush is the key to NX2's excellent features.
Johannes Zander: Nikon no need to hurry! Many like myself are still happy with the V1, because the V3 is not that much of an improvement.Focus speed isn't everything!
I'm more than happy with the V1 and its brilliant lenses but focus speed and that incredible 60fps burst is THE selling point for the 1 Series. For any form of action photography, these cameras do a far better job than any other mirrorless system. The so-called failure of the system in some countries is down to poor marketing and stupid pricing, rather than the quality and capabilities of the system.
The A7S does well at high ISOs but has an aliasing problem at all ISOs.
It would be useful to know which lenses are used in this comparison - the Df images out-resolve the A7S, particularly around the edges.
These DXO tests are hopeless as their results do not correlate with 'real world' results. Please DPR provide some image samples and dump DXO.
Why post a link to this foul-mouthed ranter? - big mistake DPR.
It would have been useful to include a sequence of shots that illustrate the incredible high speed performance of this camera. No other camera manages anything like 60fps at full frame.
RichRMA: Buy 2, 3 terabyte hard drives for $150. One for images, one for back-up. To heck with the "cloud" and the hackers.
And don't go online as they might hack your hard drives.
My pal Kryten thinks this is great. He's dusting off his old Polaroid camera as I write.
Ridiculous. Anything you post on the Internet becomes public property. Most photography sites contain post-card sized images that are of no use other than to give an impression of the full sized print. The images on my site are a bit larger at 800x533 pixels and are not watermarked. If anyone wants to 'steal' them, they are welcome.
"many creatives like to work with legacy versions"
Ha Ha, Adobe resorts to schmoozing to sell its half-baked products.
Biowizard: Bleugh! Someone is being paid too much to do nothing useful.
Weird, though, how my PC monitor looked like it was rotating clockwise the moment the movie finished.
There were many scenes in which the cameras evidently did not fire simulateously, with a number of peoples' heads and hands jittering.
Time for Apple to do it properly, I think. Microsoft, that was rubbish.
It was done properly on the Gadget Show a couple of years ago. No need for crApple's involvement.
How to lose your credibility and your audience: use the word 'awesome'.
Jonathan F/2: Where the heck is the Nikon 300mm f/4 VR? I bet they'd sell more lenses of that over the 400mm even with the car-like price!
No doubt they would, particularly if they keep the very short minimum focus distance of the 300mm f4 which allows the lens to be used as a near-macro.
QuarryCat: Nikon - still 3 years behind Canon - but more expensive.Nikon - always to late.
'Always to late' what? That sentence doesn't make any sense. What are you trying to say?
Spectacular to say the least. Robbie is undoubtedly the best cave photographer I've ever seen. A huge amount of effort is needed to get any sort of cave photograph let alone these brilliant results, due to the extreme conditions.
He really needs to get that website sorted out though - dump the Flash (if that's what it is) and get the captions done properly.
