tektrader: Its ENORMOUS, How is that micro 4/3rds ???

For a camera that size and lenses that big it may as well be full frame..

Are you an idiot? Its looks huge or are you blind....

This looks like the same technology that was used in the Amazon smart phone for viewing 2d images in 3 d on its front screen.....

If the raw processor is as good as before it will be horrible. As an editor I have used CNX2 and Paintshop pro for years. They compliment each other pretty well.

Each has its own use and for that they are great

samfan: Nikon adding features via fw, eh? That's new. Seems like they finally fired the old management and hired someone competent.

Well if they fixed the trap focus function then this is well worth it.....

On article Nikon AW1 First Impressions Review (591 comments in total)

Would love to know how many people who commented have used a V1 or V2.

I bought a V1 cheap and it has surprised the hell out of me with the PQ. It really is quite good. The build quality is excellent. Sensor size isn't everything and until you try one you should hold your tongues dissing the product.

As someone else said. This will be the king of point and shoot water proof cameras, The existing P&S cameras are just toys compared to the AW1

peevee1: No stabilization. Underwater tripod anyone?

You shouldn't need VR on an underwater camera used under water. The water damps movement quite well.

Well done NIKON, find a niche and exploit it. The rest of the so called waterproof and shockproof cameras are toys compared to this.

Excellent.......

No the artist should have stuck with the original limited quantity of prints. If I was SOBEL I would have sued as well. This is a disgusting misuse of ownership. The copy wasnt even scanned from a negative.

Anyone could have done a print scan and reprinted. This is Wrong.

It has destroyed any credibility the photographer has for future limited print runs.

He must have HUGE balls to get into the water with an animal like that.

I have a 28mm nikon PC lens whihc is quite good. But you know what? for doing stitched panoramas, its Too wide.

While this lens may be nice for single shot landscapes and architectural photos. I do 8 shots dual row panoramas and its just too wide.

50-80mm would be awesome for me. Maybe they will do that next? :)

In reply to:

audijam: i have the same conclusion for Vertax BG-11. well built but the feedback from the buttons aren't the same as Canon legit copy and yeah Vertax is of plastic so it does feel different. however....it is still great value for its price.

Factually wrong, The Genuine Nikon grip "contains" some magnesium. The body isnt magnesium, its the same polycarbonate as the Pixel. The Pixel grip uses steel in place of magnesium. Big deal.

If you look at the Nikon website you will find an exploded view of the grip which shows exactly where the metal is. There isnt much of it.

My Pixel grip works and fits perfectly.
