new boyz: Never heard of that "Gaussian bokeh" before. The next weekend project it seems.
Here's an example from back in 2009: http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/stf-mode-in-maxxum-7-recreated-for-dslrs_topic54569_page1.html
Unengaging shooting experience... care to explain that one?
yabokkie: I think E-M1 is a much better camera to use than E-M5 (though the on-sensor phase detection AF doesn't perform well and shadowed by the technical break-through of dual-pixel AF). the design of E-M5 is really bad, maybe second only to E-P1.
for the budget-friendly one, E-PM2 performs better and is sold for a much lower price than G6 though I'd like to have a grip and 60p.
Do you consider the $1300 E-M1 to be a mid-range camera?
rb59020: My D5200 is better.
The one you've got is always better than the one you don't have.
It's way better than the one you can never have.
Juck: Nice, but Alpha 7 is much better.
@Juck: Why do you say that? As far as IQ is concerned there's not a whole lot of difference. The A7 might be a little better but not much better.
psn: The top looks like Nikon pulled ideas from other classic cameras instead of sticking with their own. It's good that they're looking back but I think they didn't look deep enough inside themselves. I don't feel the Nikon soul... it's more like they looked back at the Fujifilm X100 and Sony RX cameras.
"Hey, look, I really like a separate exposure mode dial and I will put it next to the shutter release button. Also, the exposure compensation dial on the X100 and the RX looked pretty cool but I don't have enough room so I think I'll stick on top of the ISO dial."
Dig deeper Nikon. I heard David Beckham's got an NEX-7... I mean a Hasselblad Lunar. It's a Hasselblad!
Oh, now it's about what classic Nikon you own, huh?
Since you wanted to count... I have an F, FM, FM2, FE2, FA but not the F3. But don't tell me you still don't see the glaring differences? I mean, man, they are glaring differences. GLARING.
Here let me help you...The FA top view:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b4/Nikon-fa-top.jpg/800px-Nikon-fa-top.jpg
The FE2 top view:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f8/Nikon_FE2_2.jpg/800px-Nikon_FE2_2.jpg
Compare those to the Df's top view:http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-df/images/top.jpg
Now, have a look at the Fujifilm X100s and Sony RX1:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x100s/images/comparedtox100stop.jpg
I rest my case.
(By the way, I'm not saying it's ugly. I'm just saying the top doesn't really evoke memories of a classic Nikon SLR but more a hodgepodge of ideas from other cameras)
Did you look at all those cameras before you made your comment? Look again. Really, look. Don't tell me you can't see the glaring differences between a classic Nikon SLR dial set and the Df.

Just wondering... if the D600 really is spraying oil into the sensor and Nikon refused to fix it, why was there no class-action lawsuit? You could have forced Nikon to fix the problem and teach them a lesson in the process. But no.
So, this makes me think it's not really a problem. At least not enough to p*ss off the majority of the D600 users. For those who are really miffed, get rid of your gear and move on... but I'm going to bet most of you will end up buying another Nikon and probably the D610.
Or maybe the people who complain about this oily mess are not really D600 users? :)
Did the USPS appeal this to the supreme court at all? I suppose it's probably cheaper to pay the award than to pay the lawyers for an appeal. Also, it sounds to me their lawyers are pretty weak...
tongki: 4,000 cameras and STILL yet can not make a good picture of him and his cameras
That's not his problem... it's the guy behind the other camera.
It may be stupid to you but it's very obviously not to Mr. Parekh. What do you have? From your response, I'd say you're just jealous.
Joe Ogiba: I still have Kodachrome 135 and 120 film in my freezer.http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5196/5842743706_b1ecffa5a1_b.jpg
@BJL: Actually you can easily process Kodachrome film... as B/W negative film using B/W chemicals. So, you don't have to keep it as souvenir.
sigala1: The cheapest entry-level DSLR is going to be a lot more practical than the most expensive "professional" film DSLR with this insert.
This concept is not really all about practicality, is it?
Airless: The first product Canon has ever made that wasn't a blatant ripoff of another company...oh wait, nevermind
Not just plants... biological discoveries and processes, in general. How can one patent our own DNA! And then there's math and the software patents.
Madness, this patent business has become. I can foresee patent wars not waged by businesses but by countries... on the other hand, I just watched a few episodes on Continuum.
utomo99: Manufacturer need to study eagle eyes and other animal eyes. to create great lens. I believe new lens technology can be found by study the animal eyes
You didn't study hard enough or you would have found that octopus (and squid) do have lenses in their eyes... it's not just a pinhole.
RichRMA: I can hardly wait to see the back-peddling by all those Canon and Nikon users who slagged Foveon in the past.
@raincoat: I doubt you'd say that if you really know anything about sensors. Sigma's current Foveon sensor is pretty darn good. It's hard to top it if you're into portraiture and landscape photography.
I suggest you look at some images taken with SD-1 or one of the DP Merrill cameras. Open your eyes and you'll see better.
Pronounce it however you want. If someone doesn't know what a GIF or a Jif is, that's their problem.
Mr. Wilhite looks a little too rigid to me. Perhaps he needs to pull that stick out...
Vinc T: Just don't understand most of you guys. Why argue with the creator? If the creator said it was meant to be soft, it's soft.
The public always gets to decide... If the public agrees with the creator then fine. If not, then anything goes.
psn: So, because they use the phrase "social camera flash" it would make it patentable? Most camera systems today call this technology wireless flash.
@Peiasdf: I don't care what Apple(tm) calls it. I call it wireless flash.
fillkay: He's writing for a general, rather than specialist audience and trying to demonstrate that one needs rather more nous than the average punter can be expected to have. He did do it and expressed satisfaction, so don't give the bloke too hard a time.
@JaFO: The Raspberry Pi and the camera module are not for those people. Tell me of anybody in their right mind, who isn't a programmer by nature (your words), who would buy this stuff?
People who buy this camera module (and the Raspberry Pi) do it because they want, and have the patience, to learn and experiment.
