108: Geez, those A7 Sony bodies must be the ugliest cameras on the planet... even the soviet 1941 tank T34 looked better .
...and T34 looks much better then some modern cars too :)
I wonder what would be the optimal ISO for S-Log2. In A7S is 3200 but for A7II it can be too high....
is image stabilization for stills only or it's also available in video mode?
Good move, Nikon! Why bother making something new when it's so much easier to just repaint the old one. What's the next? Silver? Titan?
good job, leica! Very nice and inexpensive camera! :)
solomon barket: Saw the NX1 at photo plus, yesterday NYC. Camera seems nice and the test shoots look good from what I could take, around the booth of the display case. 16 to 50-2.0-2.8.The one thing I was thinking about was the add on flash for the hot shoe. Asked the tech about the guide number and he thought it was 54. The guide number on the Nikon SB 800 is 184. Quite a difference in power. Some times I shoot the SB800 full out on manual. Concerning the flash, the tech told me that their is no TTL on the flash setting. Did not see the add on flash, so could not verify that. Maybe Samsung will add another more powerful flash unit to their line. Also saw on display a Large White 300mm lens that will be added to the system, no price set as yet. Also Samsung booth ran out of catalogs for the NX1, with all the specs.I got into a discussion with one of the head techs, and he claims that Samsung pours there own glass, which surprised me. I thought there were only a few suppliers of glass.
I agree, the camera is new and will be full of "surprises". Will rent it first to see what this beast is capable of
LucidStrike: To put this price in perspective, for the folks who insist it's disproportionately priced: I was about to spend $1700 on a GH4 and $900 on a 12-35mm (24-70mm) f/2.8 lens with NO intention of ever changing lenses. To get a similar sensor, similar lens, and more discreet body -- not to mention keeping the 4K -- for the cost of JUST the 12-35mm lens is a hell of a value. It's like a premium lens that comes with a free 4K-capable body to match.
LX100 4K footage quality is not even close to the one taken by GH4. I've gotten thru many samples having them downloaded and analyzed. The GH4 is much superior camera for video shooters. For stills the LX100 is pretty decent though. Just my 2 cents
I can't care less about the TTL and stuff, I'm more interested about H.265 video codec and 4K feature. You can find a hundreds of other cameras with perfect TTL implementation (Canon, Nikon, etc) I don't think the NX1 is best for this purpose
Wes Syposz: she never really explains why she prefers a FF...
it's a common sense. Full frame camera in most cases produces higher quality image. I have Olympus em1 and 5dIII. Each one is good at their purposes but they're not comparable IQ wise.
SergioBR: Note 4 for me is better ! Better camera, s-pen, better low light peformance etc
I would prefer Note 4 too. I wish Iphone 6 plus was sturdier a bit
the commercial video is making me buy this cam! It's amazing how much energy and skills those guys have put together to get this video.
I wonder how much apple paid DxO. Never trusted that company. Almost every test DxO makes should be read the other way around.
abolit: I would let Fuji continue on developing their cameras to make (at least) one model 100% workable. Until then I will be using my proven DSLR
Just a Photographer!I don't blame fuji camera simply because I returned it after testing it for a few days. As to shortcomings - well, I get the desired results using my DSLR which was impossible withe half-baked Fuji.I pay money for a finished product, not for some experimental device. I work hard to make money , so I don't waste it.

" sits between the D610 and D810" ... I don't want "between" stuff, just give me a flagship like D700
what's the next iteration ? x100u ? Why couldn't this camera be made right in the first place? Why the customers should pay for Fuji's failures? Poorly designed parallax, slow AF, manual focus rotating mechanism which takes forever to achieve the focus in X100? What we see in X100T is not revolution or evolution to pay for , it's just a process of fixing issues in X100. I like Fuji attitude!
rfsIII: You know why Nikon cameras are so screwed up? Because of you people and your negative comments. The engineers at Nikon are people with feelings just like you and when they read these words—even in translation—it must be devastating to their professional pride and their egos. So instead of innovating boldly and giving us amazing cameras, they design out of hurt feelings and confusion and fear of further criticism. Hence, we get timid cameras that are confusing. Creative people thrive on positive feedback. You need to praise the good behavior, ignore the bad. So, if you don't like what Nikon is doing, you have only yourselves to blame.
If Nikon engineers were with feelings they would listen to the customers and make a camera that would not trigger any negative comments.
djbrom: Whilst I am not a Nikon shooter, I still have interest in cameras and their features in general (just interest and curiosity) and having a quick look through the specs of this camera one thing stood out like a sore thumb. A 1/4000th shutter limit?? What on earth is Nikon thinking? This is not a 3300 or 5300 but a full frame high end model. Having had cameras with a 1/4000th shutter limit I can safely say that it really is a shortfall when using fast lenses in brighter daylight. Will Auto ISO also be able to go to ISO 50 or is it limited to ISO 100 where you have to go into the menu to enable the extended iso 50?The biggest saving grace of this will be that you should have quite a bit of headroom to allow high ETTR and correcting in PP.
Mike Griffin, what bright sunlight has to do with aperture?I use 1.4 almost exclusively no matter how bright / dark it is.Even 1/8000 is not fast enough in some situations1/4000 max ? It's a joke
SaltLakeGuy: The 1/4000th shutter limit tells you something about the shutter quality/build. it's NOT up to the standards of others that have come and gone in the line where they didn't limit the shutter speeds. That's just for starters. For me and many the D750 will be another "no starter".
ASA 32/64 plus dynamic range of film is not the same as ISO 100 for DSLR. And I'm sure 1/1000 speed was a big limitation even in those days.
