Isn't 3D printing a feature that would make much more sense in a 3D CAD?Isn't PS supposed to be an image editor?What am I missing?
Astonishing!How'd he manage to move the frame? camera movement on a slow-moving rig or PP?
Foto21: D40x had a focus motor, and realistic image rendering and a battery that lasted a while. Since then, Nikon has decided to hobble its most portable dSLR size, not by making openly amateur, but by having it have pretenses to more while being enough a ripoff that you keep it past the trial date.
Meanwhile the oily D600, and mammoth D7100 (with other rumored problems), prove why Nikon bodies have yet to recover from the tsunami of 09.
Fanboys, give me a break. I'm still waiting for an afforable Nikon that doesnt suck. I guess I should buy a D610 since I can't get a good Nikon body for less than that price.
He's referring to the Thai one, were many hi-tech factories got submerged and months worth of production of hi-tech stuff got ruined.Prices of hi-tech goods (including hard disks, that I remember of) soared for half an year.
Virvatulet: Could be an interesting niche product for special use. But only if it had some active means, like mass gyros, to stabilize its movement (especially rotational) during flight. And accelerometer optimizing algorithms to choose the right moment for shutter release for the required exposure time.
Without those I doubt this will have any impact whatsoever; could keep one parents' garage busy though...
Well said, I suppose this would involve some calculations...However, while the force of the throw is unknown, both the mass of the object and g (to some degree) are known.A more accurate value of g could be inferred with a GPS module, perhaps...Variables like wind, temperature and atmospheric pressure add some complexity to the mix....
Caerolle: The Nikon Df: the camera of choice for the manly, self-assured old dudes in the Viagra TV promos.
Please, Ferrari is about uncompromised quality.Nikon is just consumer electronics.
cheddargav: Why review this camera? It's a novelty and the ones buying it won't care about performance, they'll know it'll be reasonably capable but mainly it'll be bought for the nostalgia it invokes.As others have said, it would make much more sense to have reviewed the Pentax K3 by now.
@InTheMist:Not everything that many people like is good.
This one's just a novelty. It will come and pass, as all the vogues do.
racketman: Wonder when it will be available in rip off Britain at £1069, they always just change the $ to £ as do Canon and Apple.
Also usd = euro...
expressivecanvas: I was about 99% sure I will be moving to a Pentax system to replace my obsolete Olympus system but if Tamron is going to be passing on making lenses in Pentax mount from now on, I might need to reevaluate. I'm not implying that I think this particular lens will be a 'good' lens, but Tamron does indeed make some really nice, fast lenses. If they are dropping Pentax, I definitely need to reevaluate systems...
...which is a pity.This one would be nice to have on a Pentax.
Fantastic tech & great video!

:-DFunny to know in just how many way things can go wrong...Mine was just a guess of course (the most common gotcha in the install process)
Sirandar: Every time I read Nexus articles I feel a little sad.
I like the design, style and price of the Nexus phones and generally like Google but the lack of microSD precludes me from ever buying these phones.
For photography 32Gb is OK but people like me also use a smartphone for music and perhaps video. Syncing is so passé as you often don't have the music you want when you want it, and it is a PITA. On-line services are not even close to being there yet ( but may be eventually).
If the 64GB models were widely available and not outrageously priced I might live with no microSD, but nothing can really compete with a 32Gb Sam S3 or S4 with a 64Gb microSD card if you actually use your phone as both a camera music player and have a moderately sized collection.
PS I use Dropbox and Google on-line services and they are in no way replacements for local storage, especially for music.
@dpmaxwell1. You're assuming that you'll only have photos on your cellphone. In real life you'll need as much memory as you can for photos, documents, videos/movies (yes, I've watched them also on a cell phone).
2. You're assuming perfect internet coverage at all times (which is something everyone who tries to sell you the cloud always takes for granted).Sadly it's not always the case.Plus I don't want Google to know that much about me.
3. Even if you don't need the memory for videos and photos, you'll need it for the apps.Just think about it: if you want (perish the thought!) to install a videogame for the occasional R&R break that could easily set you back 1GB.Put a couple of readers, a couple of dictionaries, an office app, a couple of photos app, unit converters, scientific calculators and such on top of that and you're done.
So, yeah, Sirandar is totally right!
You need to have Bridge installed in order to install Camera RAW updates.
rrr_hhh: Speaking of Adobe products : who took their special CC offering for photographers ?
I thought hard about it, but no : I will drag CS6 as long as I can and own LR5.
I'm still angry about the way they deals with long time customers (I have it since 1996), updated to CS6 just a few months before CC was launched and felt that last update was wasted. Then came a special offering until the end of December for owners of CS6, then a few months later they made it available for anybody, and shortened the delay to the 2th December previous owners included.. Then they prolonged the delay until the 8th December. Then their servers were hacked and my credit card number probably stolen. How can I trust such a company ? They don't know where they are going.. Apparently their offering wasn't getting as much success as they hoped, or why would they make it last longer ?
Well, those figures have started me thinking that maybe many photogs have much more money on their hands that they like to admit...Good for them!

Alec: On the one hand, we want Nikon to keep making innovative cameras and lenses, and it needs to be profitable in order to do so. On the other hand, I believe the hypothetical $40 lens cap does not prompt innovation - on the contrary it causes complacency.
What is in our best interest? What is in Nikon's and other makers' best interest? What does the future hold? I have not enough characters left to express that here, but I just did on my O2 blog - see http://karasevstudio.com/o2/2013/155
That's because it's a lens hood, not a lens cap ;-)
Hahaha!!! How different from Pentax, I can even use AA batteries...
1. We've seen a new model every year in some cases, even with only minor changes (D5200, D5300, D610)
2. DSLR are built to last: you don't need to upgrade very often unless you do that for a living.
3. Technology has reached a point that's "more than enough" for many people.Hell, if you're only posting to a blog/website even 6Mpx is absolute overkill!
