  • Replied in df - yes or no
    Ticked all the boxes, bought it, and it ticks all the boxes, a great camera to use.
  • I have the Df; love it, it's the best camera I've owned. The controls are spot on for the way I like to shoot; not surprising, I come from a film background. That first Nikon promo video more or ...
  • I like it enough that I use it on some walks where I'd normally take a compact. It's a camera crying out to be used. The kit lens is fine if you're OK with using a 50mm prime, and gives a nice ...
  • Thanks a lot for the replies. I've played around between the two Auto WB modes and it doesn't make much difference. I'll have to think about this some more. I could go for the P7800 and hope it ...
  • Created questions P7100 versus P7800
    Hi all. I have a P7100, bought as a possible replacement for my nice but a bit dated Coolpix 8400. In a lot of ways, it's a nice camera. I like the overall design, the controls at one's finger ...
  • Very nice. Does well with some challenging lighting. Like the color, something film-like about it.
  • I bought an EOS M. Gave it a thorough workout, but eventually sold it on. The IQ wasn't good enough, not nearly. The Leica T is in a different ball park to the M; the images look sharp and the...

  • If you need speed, fine, this camera probably isn't for you. The only time I need speed is when light is changing fast over a landscape. But if I miss the moment I just hang around until it changes...

  • OK, you go out and snap away with the T just as you might with say a Sony CSC, and it's not the same. DPReview didn't like the Nikon Df either, for much the same reasons. I have the Df. It's a...

  • Some nice samples, in others the colours look fairly flat. Which brings me to a general point about reviews (not just DPreview). It's rarely stated what picture controls (colour model, etc) are...

  • Hi Jez You've bought a class camera. If you like using it then that is enough; it's as easy to learn on as any other camera, and probably better than a lot. In fact, any Nikon dSLR is a good camera ...
  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    But ... in the real world it DOES compete with the likes of Olympus Stylus 1. And indeed various APS-C and M4/3 DSLR and CSC cameras. The bottom line is that it's a brute of a camera in terms of...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I'd miss not having a viewfinder as well. Maybe Nikon sees this as having it both ways; you can leave off the viewfinder when you want something smaller (if you are happy with using the rear...

    Price? People said that about the Df. The Df is selling. Enough people will pay a premium price if the product is good enough; i.e. if they're convinced they're getting quality and the performance...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    What will make or break this camera is the pic quality. Period. And as yet nobody knows what that is. 1" isn't a tiny sensor; a "premium" compact would be considered brilliant with this sized...

  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    Zanton - have you ever seen the output from a bridge camera? Tolerable because of what it gives you in terms of reach. Quality zilch.

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I'm fascinated by the number of comments about small chip, etc, when there hasn't been a single test, let alone a comprehensive review, performed with the camera. Are people only interested in...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    To state the obvious, Nikon 1 is different. Strikingly so. If you're interested in the stand-out features of the V3, then there's no other game in town. It is also a capable, flexible and...

  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    Tried the EOS-M and rapidly ditched it. Even my aging M4/3 G1 is a better camera.

    The sensor in V3 may only be 1" but it's a rather special sensor. It'll appeal to some. Be interested to see how...
