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.....
I really like the look of this camera. Like the 16 Mpixels and the dials on top. Even like that the silver reminds me of my old OM-1.
Don't like it doesn't have a spilt screen, The 39 focus points out of the D7000 is rubbish and the frame rate is 2 FPS too slow to satisfy me as a backup camera for the D800 and why have another NEW battery WTF ???
AND WHATS THE DEAL WITH THE PRICE ?? Seeing its missing the items that should have been in it above. If it had the 51 focus points and 7.5FPS and a split screen. I would have paid the sort of money they are asking. If it has this things a worthy D700 replacement it would have been.
Will look at a D7100 again now........... AT least it has an EL-EN15 in it so I don't have to take 2 chargers
I am so jealous...... I have a trip planned to Canada to see just this. Its on my bucket list quite near the top........................
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.
These are simply STUNNING........
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? :)
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.
Bring it on. I used to love my OM1, BUT MAKE IT FULL FRAME FOR GODS SAKE !!!
