On Nikon announces D4 'multi-media' DSLR article (228 comments in total)

As I suspected, f8 sensitivity drops down to just a single AF point.

mpgxsvcd: I like the 1080p @ 30 FPS option and the ability to control the Flash output more accurately.

Actually NTSC cameras use 1080p @29.97 fps in 59.94i wrapper in HBR.
PAL cameras use 1080p @25fps in 50i wrapper in HBR,

On US customers willing to spend more for Nikon article (99 comments in total)

Well 26,000 shoppers does not represent the whole of USA. It may also be that more Nikon fanboys felt the need to visit MyProductAdvisor.com for some soul searching when choosing gears. Canon users tend to know more about what they are buying and feel less need to look for an advisory site. The proof of the pudding is Canon sells more cameras than Nikon which discredit the above survey.

dgc4rter: I'm sure this is good news for many but I'm a photographer, not a cinematographer. Video has never held any attraction for me and I can't see that it ever will. There are many with the same feeling too and it feels like we're being dumped on the wayside at the moment with so much attention to video technology and hardly any in the development of high MP, high ISO sensor technology for still photography.

The best thing Nikon could do now would be to announce that 36 MP dedicated SLR with better low-light, high ISO performance than the D3s. That's what would get my vote and my money.

Video in dSLR is great. People who don't like it because their camera don't have it or shoot with a Nikon.

It is a good job that shoot with a Nikon. Won't be saying that if your camera does good video.

Adam Filipowicz: I bet it will be $10k

Not quite like the GH2 crop mode which is 2x zoom.
APS-H or 80% crop is still very large area while maintaining the DOF of FF.

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: I thought motion jpeg type videos are not efficient type of file? Please enlighten me.. I read that from the olympus e-pl2 full review here on dpr.

Moition Jpeg is more editing friendly so 4k video is possible on slower PCs.

It will be less than the flagship 1DX. The 4k video only works with 24p. If we want 60p or 120p would cost over $10k.
It will take the place of the APS-H 1D series price range maybe a bit cheaper because Canon knows the success relies on competitive pricing. Too high a price people lose interest or choose something else from RED or Sony. The 5D series will split. We may see another FF camera with inferior video at around $2k.

Canon has finally woken up and took the fight to Sony while Nikon dies in the swamp of Thailand.

On Canon EOS-1D X overview article (370 comments in total)

I guess the 5DMk3 will be the high MP studio camera with emphasis on video, swivel screen and fill the void of the 1D price point of £3k. 7DMk2 will be the new APS-H camera and priced around £2k.

Yes really. Do you know what organic means?

Yes but the hacked GH2 has high bitrate over 100mbps if needed and the GH3 will get 1080p 60fps at higher bitrate but fraction of the cost.

Taikonaut: Have you ever been stopped or asked what you are doing when using your dSLRs at an event while hundreds of others using P&S and phone cameras don't get hasselled? This is the reason to go mirrorless.

A long lens with compact body you still have more chance than a dSLR body in not getting hasselled by concert organizers accusing you of making money from their show and trying to stop you.

@Maxfield_photo I'm talking about "events" type photos here not studio. Advantage of mirrorless are I can take it anywhere at shows, concerts, sports, etc, and don't face the same kind of attention or restriction a dSLR user might get.

I can see it being popular with high end MFT owners who also owns lots of Canon lens especially if they their MFT for video. The prices are still too high for most I feel. There is another company developing something similarand will give Redrock some competition.
