Strange, they post no specs on sensor size?? Not that I can find.

Plus they state that it is 4k, twice the size as full HD. Got news for them, 4k is four times Full HD. Strange.

I had a Nikon camera that had NO battery. Well it was a film camera but... Not impressed.

webrunner5: At the entry price, I bet they will sell to about 1% of all the people on DPR. I give them B for the effort, but at that price they are going to sell less and less of those kind of cameras in this day and age than in the past.

That kind of money is just not happening in this time-frame anymore. If you need it you need it, but everyone, including me, would want one, but could never justify the cost. Divorce Court would be in your future LoL. So the cost would be even HIGHER.

And the 810 is not 900 bucks used either like I paid for the Sony.. So it might be better than sex but I can't afford one.

Maybe you are well off, seems like it.

Awhile ago, early 2012, 2014 for the 4s. Nikon does not update every year now.

I was about to pull the trigger on a D3s in great shape for $1,800.00, that is why I know what they go for. No way can I justify the price for a D4.

I ended up buying a Sony A7r used. They are pretty cheap anymore. I don't really need super high ISO, but fast auto focus, and good lock on would be nice. Hard to sneak up on anyone with a Pro Nikon camera LoL.

That is a pretty Chicken Sheet reply you know it and so does everyone else.

I have seen them for 1,800 or I would not have stated it. The 2,200 one only has 60k shots, that is a virgin for the price. Either way, unless you can write one off you have lost your butt on one. But hardly any body holds value compared to a Lens.

muljao: Interesting new tech.

I know we always want more-I wonder will Nikon release some new high end dx lenses to match this new d500

If you don't do Sports or BIF I see no use for it at all. Would be a Very expensive toy otherwise.

Mustafa: A good example of why you should use manual focusing for video.

Good cameras though.

Not counting the Audio was WAY off balance between the two people speaking. Pretty sad work overall video wise.

Wubslin: Why is Nikon bothering any more? Another two failed products to join the rest in the dustbin of history.

Well stated. Alligator mouth on the Web, humming bird ass in the flesh.

But I guess I have been guilty as charged at times myself. Web brings the worse of everyone out.

PVCdroid: Now I know where Ming gets his anti mirrorless material.

I don't think Ming likes much about anything LoL. Good help his wife if he is married!

But I love his reviews , and he is scary talented. He takes killer shots of stuff I would just walk past.

Oh I am sorry, they are AS much as 2,200 bucks on ebay.

Well these kind of cameras are pretty much Pray And Spray outfits. I am not knocking it. No way anyone is going to the Olympics and taking 50 shots and go home and keep their job LoL.

So the buffer makes sense. Probably all the camera Anyone needs for years to come. Just crazy expensive for something 3 years from now that will be on ebay for 1,800 bucks or Offer!

One big breakthrough and we are all in deep do do LoL.

Clyde Thomas: For Sony EMount, don't forget the often overlooked original Minolta Maxxum lens lineup. Great range from 16mm to 600mm. The original lineup is great compact aesthetic match for the a7 series cameras. Glass is small, lightweight, very very sharp with legendary Minolta colors. Far smaller than the modern Zeiss ZA for Alpha. The old Minolta primes (even with adapter) are generally no bigger, and often smaller than their EMount native counterparts, especially the 35/1.4.

Get full AF, Auto IBIS, and Exif with Sony LAEA-4 adapter.

Get full Auto IBIS and Exif with Sony LAEA-3 adapter.

Get manual aperture control and manual IBIS with any cheap EMount to AMount adapter.

Great lineup with family of f1.4 lenses, compact super sharp 100/2, 135/2.8 and even super tele. See all the high praise user reviews at Dyxum.com.

Just weird how little conversation there is about Minolta Maxxum AF adapted to EMount. Such an obvious and logical combination.

Sorry duplicate post.

scottcraig: Well, when all is said and done one can hardly expect the camera of an iPhone or any other mobile device to compare to that of a DSLR. I do however find it nothing short of hilarious how camera manufacturers continue to profess how astounding their cameras are with the hopes of improving market sales.

Most cell phones you are not going to print much of anything. It is for social Media mostly. Now Video that is another story. I have made some darn interesting Videos with my Samsung Note 4 using 4k video on it. Downsized to HD, well it is excellent. Even my Apple 5s in HD is good. It is the future down the road with frame grabs. 4k has 8mp frame grabs, 8k will have 32mp frame grabs. It is out in Japan already.

Davinci Resolve 12 is out now for free. Get it!! Learn Video, it is the future. Complex and scary at first, but very logical once you learn to use it.

I use a lot of old 40's, 50's Blues Songs on my Videos. Free music, and sets a killer mood on certain Videos.

Get on Vimeo and watch a lot of the short films on there. Some amazing stuff with Cell Phones and not so expensive cameras. Skill has no boundaries over cost LoL.

Practice, practice, practice. The only way to improve it. You can read every book on the web, but you have to get out and put it to use.

Learn everything about your camera and how the lenses you have work in different situations. Night time, daytime, wide open, fully closed. It makes a huge difference mood wise. It can be fun to experiment. Screw up, no big deal delete it. Do great, print it.

I am Glad you have a passion for it. That is what makes you better!

If you are good you can take a Great picture with a Cell Phone. Strive to do better and hone your "craft"/ ART.

Good luck with your photography, it is a wonderful Hobby, even can lead to a rewarding Business. Memories that will last your lifetime. Glad to meet you. GL.

Me thinks you are full of it. Art is in the eye of the beholder.

A snapshot of a baby with a iphone is Art to a young mother and her child.

I bet you, like me, and many others on DPR have EVER been lucky enough to have taken 100 Killer pictures in their life that they would hang in a ART exposition.

And I have been doing this a Long time. Oh, and by the way I really am in the camp that Photography is really not an ART. It is too easy, for way to many people, to luck out and take a great shot to call it a ART like you seem to think.

Artist are few and far between to be lumped into a "craft" I will call it. And I made a full time living as a Photographer for 17 years. Artist no, Craftsman, well yes. I won't even call Ansel Adams a Artist. He was a VERY special Craftsman in his field. YMMV.
