The real story would be how does this compare with a good 35mm DSLR or mirrorless. I would like to see a comparison under the same conditions, same photos in the hands of the same photographer. Not saying one is better than another, but just how much of a real-world difference is there?
Still a long, long way to go on video technology apparently. And call me when autofocus actually works.
In the meantime, I'll use my cameras for photos and my cheap videocam for video.
Yoggie: Smart move. They cannot compete with the cheap knockoffs on the low end so they are better off sticking with the high end. The difference between a knockoff and the Hero+ LCD is inconsequential for the casual user butt the difference between the Hero4 and even the best knockoff is huge for a pro user.
If I'm not buying a GoPro at $199, what makes them think I'm going to buy at $299, $399 or more?
Wow, no comments for this one even after 6 years? I wish some owners would report on their likes and dislikes, seems like a good price for a versatile lens but some of the conclusions scare me a bit.
Anyone ever use an LED like these instead of a flash? I'd like to know what the advantage is. Are these continuous lights, or do they work like a flash?
Wow, I really wanted to like this but just realized no pop-up flash, that really kills it for me, I use the pop-up on my D7100 quite often for a bit of fill flash. It would be a PIA to carry around the SB400 all the time.
grasscatcher: Windows is just like BlackBerry - they have, by far, the best and slickest operating systems out there, but lack of apps to make them saleable.
Universal apps would be a huge gamechanger.
Not sure why everyone says Windows phones don't have apps. I used a Nokia 540 and now use a Lumia 640, I prefer them over my HTC One and Motorola Android phones I put in the drawer. I have no problem finding every app I need on the Windows phone. And the OS is way more stable than Android and works so well with OneDrive I uninstalled Google Drive on my laptop and desktop. I was a Google guy through and through, but the Windows phone OS works so well and is bulletproof, which sold me.
erotavlas: This looks cool, but there's no explanation as to why. Can someone explain what benefit shooting 10 images at different focal lengths and merging them is? And what do the other 6 cameras do?
I've had no problem setting DOF through my viewfinder for the past, oh, 35 years or so. Not that I'm against new technology; in fact, I'm something of a tech freak. But this is gimmicky, I don't see the value.
hammarbytp: My own impressions after reading the other reviews
Overall it does not beat the Nikon D810 in a number of key areas such as continuous focusing. However in lower light and with 4K video it beats it which is pretty impressive. Compared to other high end cameras such as the canon 5DS, it generally beats them in all counts.
It could do with longer battery life, 2 cards and a greater range of native lenses
UI could be improved, including the touch screen
If you do extreme pixel peeping you might see some artifacts caused by compressed raw. This can be fixed at the cost of much larger file sizes
a very impressive attempt at taking the top crown, with Nikon breathing a sigh of relief and Canon looking very worried.
To summarize. Not the expected messiah, but maybe the prophet of things to come
Yeah, it costs 2x more than I'd ever be willing to spend on a camera...
How come I have never, ever in all the 10+ Nikon cameras and many lenses I have owned since the 1980's, have never received one single message from Nikon telling me there's an update available?
I only catch it when I see an article like this online. Thanks for that DPReview, but thanks for nothing to Nikon.
onlooker: Thanks for that map, DPR. Please keep us updated. I will definitely consider it next time I go to Europe.
Not me -- I can't wait for this law to be in place. I'll take twice as many photos and post 'em all over the place. So sue me EU. Try it, I dare you!
Make it a 24 to, say, 140 mm max with f2.8-4.0 and I'm interested. 600mm lens? Really? And other than marketing, the reason for that is...?
I guarantee no one can hold this thing steady at that range, multi-axis stabilization or not.
Anything over about 140mm or so is unnecessary for a travel camera. I've traveled the world multiple times with many point and shoots from back in the B&W film days until now and never found the need for anything over 120mm. Most shots taken at wide angle to 70mm or so.
Valiant Thor: I'm very curious as to which market segment this camera is supposed to be competing in?
The "Mine is longer than yours" category.
Just a correction: "The Sony also uses all of it’s 12.2MP sensor..."
"It's" is always and only a contraction for "it is". If you wouldn't use "it is" then don't use "it's". There is no such thing as a possessive "it".
In the sentence above, "it is" would be incorrect, so it's "its".
Mike FL: Too bad/sad
Who is the next waiting on the line? Hasselblad?
Nikon, if they don't sharpen up and move out of the '60's to compete with Sony and Panasonic.
Doesn't look that small to me...
But if you don't have a good wifi connection, you're out of luck. I wonder if it downloads some of the software so the local processor can help?
The heck with 4K, Nikon can't even get 720p right!
Yo Nikon: just give me a DSLR with some decent autofocus capabilities for shooting video! My D7100 video is an absolute joke and an embarrassment to Nikon.
Mr. Akagi, you want to make improvements that will distinguish yourself from the competitors? Take DSLR video seriously like Sony and Panasonic, who have probably siphoned off tens of thousands of potential Nikon customers (and I'm next if it doesn't improve).
MikeF4Black: Most commenters here have no idea whatsoever of Japanese business culture, let alone of the successful part of that business culture. It takes some reading between the lines to grasp what he's saying.
My only question is: did DPR really "make time" for him, or was it possibly just the other way round? ;-)
We understand Japanese business culture, but Nikon cameras are not sold only in Japan. The best companies understand that and change their culture and practices to fully satisfy and delight their customers, no matter where.
Must be a mistake, the article on the new Nikon 20 mm lens (link below) has the press release for the D750?
