Vegasus: Dear NIKON company, will u make the next D5 is mirrorless??? FF mirrorless like Sony a7? I want FF Mirrorless, electronic viewfinder with similar features like fuji x-t1, wifi, bluetooth, built-in modem ( so take photo and send it right away to the internet, ho ho ho ho ) slightly smaller, lighter, expeed 5 perhaps, 20 megapixels, no grain at very high iso, ....
Why you don't buy $50 copy of iPhone with all these bells and whistles already inside?
Aaron801: I know this is a really ignorant question, but I know nothing about this class of cameras... I'm wondering why a camera so bulky and so expensive is only 16mp?
You just not hold this beast in your hands.Sony NEX are much bulkier and cumbersome in handling all day.(It is because you holding small camera by fingers and control it by fingertips) So usability of compact sizes is myph.
Sweet. If only I win a lottery...
Seriously I like body size which is smaller than D300 with grip and like lightened buttons.
Where are my underwater iPhone! I strongly need a wi-fi and underwater instagram capability.
1. Flat surface very prone to micro-misfocusing and focal plane misalignment.
2. Printed photo colors basically have nothing common with colors of natural objects (by spectral characteristics). Also they degrade quickly and change colors significally just in months.
So this test charts show only how much alcohol test team had in last 3 weeks prior to test, but no way camera sensor.
Ha-ha-hah!They still not discovered usage of scotch adhesive tape!
What else they invent after scotch tape discovering?A hammer with 2 heads? (If electronically drived second hammerhead beat you while you smash nail)A scothched dual pensil that writes 2 strokes simultaneosly?A gun that shoots at you and the enemy?A cup for tea and coffee same time?.....
Why not just to tell us how many produced and how many sold?
vestay: D700 is the same as a D300s??? really? I have both and there is no comparison.
In sense of handling they nearly identical
Stacey_K: Just FYI, the D7000 does have configurable auto ISO that works well.
AFAIK Auto-ISO in D7000 don't take account of focal lenght.
SverreE: Thank you for a nice review. I come from D300 and are very happy with my D7100.
The only thing i didn't understand is why you don't want resolution? At the same time you enjoy 1.3 crop and high ISO improvements...
Because I print large formats 42" wide and 6MP D40 was well enough with right lens. Perception of clarity by our eyes have little to do with resolution of camera but mostly with photographer's skill (And lens, and subject, and lighting etc.).
Yet another reason is that I purposely miss IQ aspects and concentrate review on handling and getting the right picture.
Try to use camera instead of "seeing samples"
It is one of ixus compacts placed inside dummy body outer shell. Wait for somebody take it apart.
Thomas Kachadurian: Here's the money quote for me as to why this logic is completely flawed: "If you've read this far, it should be obvious that maintaining regular, current backups of the Lightroom catalog file is absolutely essential. In the event that your Lightroom library stops working properly the catalog file is always the first thing you’ll want to salvage."
No, you are wrong. The first thing I want to salvage is my raw image files. I am a photographer, not a database manager. I can't tell you how often my students call me saying "I've lost my photos in Lightroom (or Aperture or iPhoto)."
This is the problem when programers think they know better than photographers. Perhaps I have a better memory than other people or I am better organized, but using the folder system in 5 minutes I can lay hands on any of the hundreds of thousands of images I have shot since well before digital.
Lightroom can't hurt you original RAW files. So you're a troll.Or take 5 minutes and read page or two about Lightroom.
Jim-S: Hi folks. Here's another question about catalogs. We're a commercial studio handling lots of large layered files, and our workflow consists of capture software, editing software (PS) and an asset manager (Iview Media Pro). Am I correct that there would be no way to use LR in a networked environment, where images are initially edited at one workstation, and later edited on a different computer? I have always assumed that the way LR maintains a catalog prevents this. Have I missed something?
No way. Lightroom doesn't allow you create or use lrcat catalog on network drive. Moreover, ALR uses very extencively cache folder in same folder as catalog. It uses plenty of open files so not suitable for average networks.
But where is Nikon D4?Al least it is nice and funny camera to use.
Last year many internet users sling whole barrel of clear sh|t at Nikon:"Nikon won't love DX users with D400""Nikon must go with fullframe compact""Nikon 1 is useless and awful system"
Today is clear what strategy lays behind Nikon moves, and as DX user I like any of possibilities with Nikon:1. Go CX and shoot for own pleasure.2. Stay DX if you are not a pro.3. Go FX D600 and use f/4 zooms.4. True Pro remains with f/2.8 and 2012' pro bodies.
Honestly I'm very impressed with any of today's solution. Few years ago quality photo was possible only with 4th direction.So many of us amateurs spend thousands for Pro equipment as the only way. Now we have a choice of actions.
jcmarfilph: And when shoot this scene, please equalize the settings next time coz we are seeing inconsistencies in your studio shots in almost all cameras (within similar group).
So natural objects like feathers, ceramic barelief, hand made dolls, matte laquered woods, old metal coins covered with some oil, anodized metals etc. will serve very well for comparisons. They also have unlimited details.
Please read my message carefully.1. Printed photo completely unacceptable for test purposes. Their colors very different from real objects beause of metamerism.
They look similar to real objects only for our imagination and in some lightning conditions. In reality colors in prints have completely different spectrum than original colored objects.And that spectrum on prints have characteric spikes while real color's spectrum are continous in nature.
2. Colors on prints tend ageing very fast, especially from light emission. Also appereance change with air humidity.
jamesfrmphilly: i hate it. there was a perfectly good forum and you had to mess it up.
Personal message for Britton:Did you analysed before how dpreview users read forum and write messages?You just take a good forum model for acid degenerates like Twitter. That new forum suitable for "me too" and "first!" messages. And nobody reads twitter messages older than few hours.But you were not twitter. Most peoples here at dpreview don't sitting here whole day, they hard at work making photos and prints. Interesting discussions here went thru months if not years. It was a perfect community to learn and grow with digital photo last 8 years.
With new forum look I'll never find interesting message and never answer interesting questiuon. Because all that visual crap deny quick scan of themes and messages.
You asked for feedback. But you mean "change color" or "add 5 new buttons" and not like critics of new appearance as a whole. It is self-destructive motto for you.
Personally I understand how critics insults you. But that's true.I hope you'll understand it too.
chlamchowder: If this camera does manage to perform well at tracking action without using PDAF, I will be very impressed.
However, I suspect that he'll be stopping down the lens and zone focusing...I doubt that even the latest iterations of CDAF can track well in demanding situations.
It is sort of old school circus, like a sword-eaters, jugglers, haired face woman etc.Imagine sportsman who used circus monocycle at bycicle race. It is very funny but not about the race and sports.So mr. Mouhtaropoulos set a Guinness record as an only sport photographer in the world that used (hopefully once) Panasonic camera.Bravo!
