On Nikon D750 Review preview (1072 comments in total)

mpgxsvcd: Canon still thinks they use better sensors.

@Ryan_Valiente I think Nikon is blocking Canon from obtaining those sensors from Sony. Whatever contract Sony and Nikon sign, could be the reason why Canon is stock with its old sensor tech. Canon is only allowed to purchase sensors for its consumer point-n-shoot line.

deltaskyking: 10 frames per second - check
65 point wide viewfinder filling autofocus - check
Class leading fast autofocus - check
Pro level weather sealing - check
Excellent low light autofocus and image capture - check
Another B.S. "Silver Award" for Canon cameras from dpreview - check

You see, at the end of the day, the camera sensor has the most weight in measuring the overall camera performance. If the 7DII had an Exmor sensor it would get a Platinum Award covered with diamonds.

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (274 comments in total)
In reply to:

James Bligh: They say it real-world test and they do not cover its weakness such as internal reflection issue. Not even mentioning it I wonder this is a test or an entertainment. What a shame!

well, come on, we all know the issue is overblown. The problem is more like photographers have turned to field-testers. I understand that Nikon is partially to blame for that with the left-af debacle from three years ago, because after that many photographers have started to deliberately look for flaws in every Nikon gear. That's bad for Nikon, because it creates unnecessary worry.

This camera is going to drive yet another nail in the Canon's coffin.

So, do you shoot with this camera, or do you shoot this camera?

The question is when will it be in DSLR's?

rhlpetrus: Did you hear that, Nikon? They asked 7D users what they wanted and delivered. Nikon have been sleeping in their past glory in pro APS-C and now that market is gone for Nikon, simple as that. Mirrorless: again, when will Nikon give up on the N1 system, introduce a good 1" compact with fast zoom and launch APS-C ML and FF ML systems (should be new mount to reduce flange distance)?

Wake up Nikon!!! It's not only the cheap P&S market that is going down.

Asking users is too late. Delivering the products to users before they realize that they need them is what Nikon and Canon should be doing.

According to these statements Nikon is definitely not in the leading position, they are in the reactionary position. To Nikon it is about studying the market, and competition, and then reacting based on the findings. Apple does not think like that, they create new demands, opportunities and desires, that is what innovation is all about. But when you react to the demands, not only are you too late to the game, but you're not innovating either, you're only upgrading.

I must admit, Nikon has made innovations in a few areas, for example, the Dynamic Range. Nobody talked about DR until Nikon pushed DR limits above expectations, and that caused ripples in the market, causing every Canon user demanding for more DR.

It's an excellent camera considering that it has no competition. It's closest competitor D300 is years old and abandoned.

On Getting off the ground: Cheap drones for photography article (148 comments in total)

I'm waiting for the day to come when our Speed Lights could be like mini-drones (or like little humming birds) that could stand still in mid air without a stand. Via algorithms they could quickly reposition themselves to enable you to take different shots. And be able to follow the subject on their own...etc.

Look, this camera will be judged by its price. Bring down the price of the kit to $500 and you got yourself a winner. In the mean time, other mirrorless offering look far more attractive.

Nikon 1 failure.
It's simple, if you cannot sell it in the USA you've failed.

I think its time to start building a second system. With Nikon and Canon, you don't know what will happen, because hey are like sleeping giants while smaller manufacturers are like hard working ants coming out with products after products.

In reply to:

jdrpc: Waterproof to 15m is NOT an Underwater Camera! And much less the successor of the Nikonos V or RS that could go to 75m!!!!
It's like the watches that say "Waterproof to 30m" but can barely go under 10!
If the camera says 15m, it can barely go to -5m, because of dynamic pressure....
Pity! would be nice to have a real Digital UW camera

When a company rates a product at 15 meter, you can sink twice deeper before the thing breaks. Everything in technology can be pushed further than what its rated at.
