lem12: This x100s is probably one of the nicest looking rangefinder camera out there.
other then the small fact that it isn't a range finder
stratplaya: I'd like to take Photoshop lessons from Grimes.
actually, I am wrong. they seemed to choose literally his worst work for this article though...
really? those sun beams are ghastly, and the shadow on the runner is almost worse.
Zeisschen: Many won't like it as it's some "digital magic" compared to a good old sensor and expensive lens. But in a few years we will be able to make clean low light 4k videos in 3D with shallow depth of field effect at night at ISO 25.000 on our 500$ smartphones and the results might look better than from todays 100.000$ cinema equipment.
That's technology, cheers on the engineers who make such things possible and affordable!
which makes you wonder, what will the $100k cameras of then look like?
Almeida: Are people buying these crop cameras?
aramgrg: Gold? Come on guys, nothing is changed within a year and so, but your ranking still is gold!For instance, the same kind of changes has been made from T2i to T3I (even more substantial), but the first received gold, the second one silver, which is logical.Would you give a gold star another t2i announced this year, say t5? I don't think so(even considering price category change).So it will be logical to change either d610 to silver, or give no award, saying D610 is a continuation of D600 with fixed bags.Secondly, your comparing tool at the conclusions page is totally irrelevant. Comparing D600 vs D610 nothing changes substantially, besides the value row. How will you explain me the fact that D610 received gold award, nothing has changed upon D600 to the worse, but it is half the value(even the announced price,maybe by 100$, but they have been fairly similarly priced when announced)?
not everyone had the problem. they do their review based of their unit, not on angry bloggers.
clauderobidoux: Just got some pictures ready for a stock agency this morning. Took me about an hour just to clean dust spots... really annoying! Please Nikon if there's one technology you should focus on is getting rid of this problem, or at least find a way to improve it significantly.
send it in, they will replace it for free.
gerard boulanger: Relatively "affordable". 14 stops DR is a little disappointment.
really? I don't know much about MF, what would a good MF camera have?
cheddargav: Interesting for videographers I guess
if videographers want to shoot at f/6.3.
I doubt it.
AV Janus: Not as cool as APSC version since it starts at boring 28mm.
um, actually that sort of makes a world of difference.
to my eyes, it is the difference between wide angle, and standard.
anyone planning on an extravagant camera purchase please opt for an M-E with summilux 50mm f1.4. there would be 10k well spent.
or just get a freaking a99.
jacketgiang: This guy reminds me Ken Rockwell, but it seems like Ken Rockwell knows a lot more about photography than this guy.
nutpea summed it up perfectly.
trulandphoto: This might just be my next EOS-M lens. But do I get EF mount so I can use it with my 7D and the adapter on the EOS-M or the EF-M mount version?
everyone! we found the EOS M owner!
Debankur Mukherjee: When will Nikon come out with such a camera.......??
what about the 1 cameras?
WT21: I love lensrentals an roger's blog, but he got bokeh wrong. Bokeh is
"the quantitative measure of depth of field. Objectively, more bokeh is better than less. Lens makers have at last understood what photography experts on internet boards have been telling them, with lenses whose bokeh now goes up to 11. Any lens that cannot go to 11 bokeh is an inferior lens.
Bokeh is impacted by sensor size. m43 sensors, for instance, only have 1/2 the bokeh of full frame sensors."
generally, I think a lower number is better for bokeh.
peevee1: Nice. ;-)
"Silence – The response of many wives and at least one camera company when an obvious problem arises."
marike6, which company do you think Cicala means?
nikon. definitely nikon.
d600 to d610, and SB 900 to SB 910, the patter in obvious.
Homam: Can't believe there is so much negativity already! No one actually knows what the camera is!!! Let's not forget Canon still holds the record when it comes to best-selling cameras, and let's not forget Canon was the first to introduce DSLRs, was the first to introduce Video in DSLRs like 5dMII which revolutionized the DSLR market and took digital photography to another level...
Well I suppose Canon know what they're doing. If you don't like or need the new camera that Canon announces you'd better stick to what you already own...
first to introduce video? what about the d90?
ogl: It looks like the camera which made from 3 different cameras of different time. Photoeclecticism. Bad work of designer. Set-off. No style, not conceptual.Even new Fuji, Sony A7 or Panasoniс are more stylish.
Is it real to switch this camera by one arm?
and " I found this giant box of knobs!"
Nikonuser57: In the market for a D610 and now have just seen this. Currently own and use a Film FE2 and love it. Shame the video is missing on the Df but if the full functionality of older non-AF Nikon lenses can be employed, this is a brilliant substitute. Not happy about the price when the D610 body is about $2299 AU. This Df is a bit too expensive for aesthetics alone and only 16MP?? They can do a lot better for this price I'm sure. Older Nikon Die-hards will love the outer design. Definitely going to do a hands on assessment before I buy but so far the D610 or D800 is best and I can still use all my old Nikon lenses very effectively.
oh, but imagine the size of the pixels at 16 megs and full frame… lovely...
reginalddwight: OVF with split-image screen? Nope.
Hybrid OVF with EVF and focus peaking? Forget about it.
Nikon, what's the point of having a retro-style camera that supports a slew of legacy manual focus AI and non-AI lenses but offers only a small green dot in the OVF as the primary focusing aid?
YES YES YES YES. at least offer a swappable focus screen!
