On Nikon Df combines classic design with modern technology article (313 comments in total)

My eyes are watering. I don't know if it's sticker shock or because I'm all misty with jubilation.

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1514 comments in total)

If that shutter audio was real instead of sweetened, then it sounds like a dead ringer for my F3HP. (If that's already been submitted, my apology for the redundant observation.) And I agree with those who've stated, in effect, a properly--read:classically--designed DSLR is long overdue. This camera looks both intriguing and promising. Bring it, Nikon!

In reply to:

Marty4650: It's pretty obvious what is happening here.

Compact cameras are a dying breed. They are getting killed by camera phones below them, and small MILC cameras above them. Aside from the highest end models (like the S100, LX5 and XZ-1) they will cease to exist in a few more years.

So the marketing departments take over and start stuffing more megapixels, more zoom range, more scene modes, more gimmick features, and more of everything else except image quality.

Because it is physically impossible to provide better image quality when building a 30X zoom based on a tiny sensor.

All of these cameras are a total waste of money for most people.

Get a good camera phone... or just buy another lens for for your MILC camera. You will be better off.

Thanks for the Vimeo tips. The Jeen de Vos shorts are impressive.
