plasnu: Is this a rumor?
DPReview probably prefer that Fuji provide a link from a suitable ad instead :)
wudyi: I'm going to get this. I have a friend who took one of these to Africa and came back with spectacular shots of African kids playing in a muddy river.
@Photoman - relax, I am sure the implication was that they took one of its preceding versions (the "egg-shaped" D10 or the slightly more normal-looking D20) and not this one.
photo_rb: I often read comments on computer forums on how Apple is ripping off developers by taking 30%. Those commenters should take a walk in the world of stock photography.
Or publishing in general. Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing? You get 35% - or 70% if you give them exclusivity and only for some markets. (And the 30% take in app stores is the same for Google Play and the Windows Phone store.)
Phil_MI: Wow a $10,000 enthusiast camera. Just imagine yourself walking around with your nose in the air while flaunting your 'blad and watching us bottom feeders grovel at your feet and hope to just touch the hem of your garment.
Yeah I'm jealous in case no one noticed. :^)
I thought the A99 sat in the "pro" segment of Sony's lineup? Same goes for this "you can use it on the South Pole" reworking. :)
ragmanjin: Kicking the dead horse again here but this camera, too, was released later than the Pentax K-3. When is that review slotted for again?It would be nice if reviews happened in chronological order rather than by preference. At the least it would save you a lot of back-peddling and accusations of favouritism.Just my two cents.-Raj
I was under the impression that camera manufacturers which wanted reviews sent out review units to publications? If DPR have to wait until they get their hands on a K-3 from someone then we might be in for a wait...
photobeans: Wow..sexy, but FUJI lenses are wallet busters. Still, do want.
Trolls should use bridge cameras... ;)
TacticDesigns: RE: The "stackable" Polaroid camera . . .
If you "stack" 2 of them together sideways . . . and get them to take the picture at the same time . . . would it be possible to use it to get 3D pictures / video?
"stack" one on backwards and get a picture / video of yourself skiing / boarding as well?
. . .
Sure, just take the two JPEG pictures and put them into a wrapping container (MPO or JPO), that is what stereoscopic cameras like the Fuji "Real3D" W3 does.
Alphoid: Why not talk about the curvy TVs? Those, in some ways, have more long-term implications for photography, and in particular, UWA photography than anything else announced.
Yeah, a big TV that is made less practical if more than one person wants to watch, that is going to be a great success. Families fighting for the center spot, yeah that is going to go down well...
Bjorn_L: How is this the first weather resistant superzoom? The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 has been out for 4 months and is also sealed.
When did a mere 8x zoom become "superzoom" in this day and age?
Gesture: What a better value/approach if one is buying an older model: Say, get the 50D or a more recent but not latest in the Rebel Series, say T4i. Thanks.
Depends: The 50D has no articulated screen, wi-fi or video and has a far older processing engine. But it is decent enough (I kept mine around after getting the 5D mk III so that I had a crop sensor body for the occasions when that is advantageous).
Peter Lacus: about the only thing Apple really needs to do, is to enable RAW, everything else is first class already...
Problem is, the sensor is Sony's, I doubt they would like to license the raw format for a competitor's product... a compromise where you got DNG out, though...
maxnimo: How the heck can anyone vote properly on this unless they have used and compared every single camera on the list?
The same way people can vote on "best album of the year" without having listened to every bloody record released: They use their subjective opinion.
Shotcents: Happily, the cameras in the lead should be. The Pentax is quite good and I just ordered a Df (or rather my wife did) after trying a friends for an evening. The Df is beautiful, ideal if you already own a D800. D610 and D7100 are also solid, if less than thrilling upgrades. I voted for the Df because it's the only thing on the list that's really trying something new. The interface is truly enjoyable and flexible and the sensor is gorgeous. Packed in the smallest FX body around it's very easy to fall for the Df. As expected spec hunters don't "get it" but they aren't usually photographers anyway.
I think "leaving out video in this day and age" counts as new :)
Caerolle: The Nikon Df: the camera of choice for the manly, self-assured old dudes in the Viagra TV promos.
Whoever called Mustang a sports car? I thought it belonged to the class called "muscle cars"?
ovatab: ... disappointing ...... small coverage ...... inconvenient ...... inconsistent ...... not best suited ...... falling off ...... awkward ...... not terribly comfortable ...... rather large and heavy ...... slow ...
classic fail :(
Well, people will generally go by what they read online before making a decision. If you want to "correct" their impression, write your own piece.
I hear iamnikon.com is a good place to do so... :)
DVT80111: F4F4F4what's the excitement?
What is the point in a heavier f/2.8 lens that needs to go to 5.6-8 for sharpness, when you can have a lighter and cheaper f/4 and up the ISO? We are no longer in the early days when ISO 3200 was a noisefest in digicams.
DWare: Hmmm ... Aperture is manually inserted? Should provide some interesting photo experiments. The star, hexagon and drop shape depicted ... wonder how they look and seems any style can be made or modded to fit the slot? I'd probably switch screen to a split style for the manual focus but in any case, seems intriguing.
If you want to see sort-of examples of the effects, check out Lensbaby photos using the manually replaceable aperture shapes/rings for their lenses.
David Hurt: Hmmm . . I use a Samsung Galaxy S4 - iFonez do absolutely NOTHING for me, nor does Anything Apple/Frapple makes.
... and we iPhone owners yawn at Samsuck. So :P
QuarterToDoom: Seriously in the next 20 years no one will be able to make anything if these Design Patent crap keeps being won.
How come you don't see car manufactures suing each other for look alike cars. Look at the photos below at least on the cameras the brand names stand right out.
Did you actually try to find out whether car manufacturers sue each other over designs? A quick google threw up these:
EVERY trade which uses patents and design patents is rife with lawsuits and licensing. Just because you do not follow a given trade does not mean they don't exist.
QuarterToDoom: For all of you who think Nikon is right, here's one for you. This goes beyond ridiculous.
I couldn't upload to the galleries for some reason (gave me errors) so had to upload it to my server.
robmanueb, it does not take much research to see that the car industry is also rife with lawsuits and licensing over patents and design patents. But why do you drag in copyright? Do you think anyone should be free to publish other people's work?
