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.
Why not just get an HD camera than making this painful rig?
Wow I pitch that idea a year ago, and look its finally coming to fruition.
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.
How many Gigapixels is this camera?
Nikon 1 failure. It's simple, if you cannot sell it in the USA you've failed.
fdfgdfgdgf: This video is full of crap
someone feeling crabby today. Did you wake up on the wrong foot?
where do I buy their liquidations?
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.
what an ugly looking camera. This camera looks like point-n-shoot. At least improve some aesthetics.
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.
schaki: The Nikonos wont be properly reborn until the camera uses full frame sensor.This seems like the development of the Nikon 1 system which almost was doomed to fail before it reached the shelves in the stores the first time. Craptax Q is an other joke amongst cameras with interchangeable lenses.The 1" sensor size however would make sense to used more in usual compacts and I certainly would like to see compacts like Cann S110 and Coolpix P7700 use this sensor size it it would be possible.
The full frame sensor will come when the Nikon DSLR's start becoming mirrorless.
Wye Photography: One thing I dislike about Americans is their overtly nationalistic and patriotic attitudes. You know, hand on heart and that "One nation under God" lark. And what do they do, buy phones from a Korean company instead of an American company. Makes me laugh.
Perhaps Americans aren't as nationalistic and patriotic as the media makes us Brits believe.
no, Americans are not nationalistic, they are more laid back. For example they don't throw TV's out of their windows when their team loses (in any sport) on the international level.
Besides, how can they be nationalistic when Americans are ALL migrants. But when it comes to tyranny that they escaped from, they do get pretty patriotic about their freedom.
HappyVan: Sounds like more of the mirrorless nonsense.
At one point, mirrorless was the next big thing. Heavily promoted by cultists and websites. The DSLR was a dinosaur, they say. Today, mirrorless is in retreat even in Japan. Why is that?
Any camera is a tool. All it means is that Barney is doing snapshots at the moment for social sharing. Will he ever return to photography as an art? Will he ever need to zoom?
Although sarcastic, but you have a point.
