On Tune in to DPReview Live this Thursday and Friday article (238 comments in total)

Followed an hour or so, stream was fine for me on the homepage of dpreview.
Interesting, albeit not overly so.
Thanks, though!

This is why developers hate making apps for Android-based phones.

Hmmm...
jokes aside, it looks to me that this forum, not me, is a little one-sided.
If it were for the likes of you there would probably only be apple devices around...
if you call that freedom...
I'll go read some good book on my Cyanogenmod tablet...

Samsung is the reason behind its own demise, they made terrible choices lately...
As for "my version of freedom" a smartphone that doesn't let me use it as I like is not freedom, so your point is moot.
That's /one/ of the reason behind Samsung's recent drops, they've become an "evil" company

In reply to:

Galbertson: Rockwell states audio in jack for Nikon's own little stereo mic. Will other third party mics also work?

Yep, and a good external recorder costs a fraction of a good mic.
And audio quality is usually much much better than a good mic with a noisy pre.

What good does an audio jack?
If you want pro audio just use an external recorder and synch it in post.
No point in using a good mic with poor DSPs.

In reply to:

Anastigmat: The color of this camera is good if you dropped it in water and want to look for it. On dry land, it looks too conspicuous.

Yeah, because mountain bikers & skiers wear camo & try to blend in with the surroundings! :D:D:D

Regarding low flash synch speed, there's HSS, you know, and people made great photos when flash synch speed was 1/60...

You don't even need 1/200 if there's not much ambient light.
I can manage with 1/180, and I often lower it in order to get some ambient light in.

If you "need" flash at noon (and you seldom need it), just lower your ISO, (close the aperture), or pop a ND, or use HSS.
High-speed flash synch is not so useful as many people think.

TimK5: No 4k Video? Nikon must be living under a rock. 4k is here to stay. At last weeks IFA everything was about 4k (and the first 8k outlook)

When is Nikon going to catch up? When the others release 8k?

It's not a good idea to stay too much ahead either: the outcome is higher costs for features very few will use.

I'd reckon Nikon /could/ build a 4K, video-oriented DSLR, /but/ they probably don't think there's much market for it /or/ that it has already been filled by more video-conscious brands like Pana or Canon.

GodSpeaks: No 4K video. Why are we even talking about this?
Does Ricoh not realize 4K is the next BIG thing?

I agree on the last point.

At least it has "Endless" video recording.

... Wait, GoPro 4 coming out soon. More expensive, but better.

Let's go buy another couple hard drives... :-D

AngryCorgi: Why does everything that Pentax/Ricoh puts out looks like it was made for a child? Seriously. Bright colors. Unnecessarily large in a g-shock type style. I don't get it.

...but is easily one of the most easy colors to pick up in the woods or on grass.
