slippedcurve623: Haha "sony 4d tracking gives the top of the line dslr a run of their money"
Wow so many sonyfanboyism on the Internet, assuming its the same technology as the one found in the a6000, my nearly 8 year old 1d mark iii is in a whole diffrent league regarding af performance (accuracy/speed) compared to my a6000, despite all the press that the 1d iii has af problems, and dn't get me started on my 7d mark ii/1dx......there is an reason pro sports photographers use dslr on major sporting events.

Fast action events still need DSLRs, as attractive as mirrorless may be. The Sony 7II still hunts[low light] in comparison to a D700 for example.
Controls via menu is also frustrating.

On CP+ 2015: Nikon shows off new D810a article (65 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: All of these features that they have added are available in the less than $200 Olympus E-PM2. The biggest difference is the 4/3” sensor versus full frame. However, full frame is actually a drawback for astrophotography.
With astrophotography depth of field is always infinite so the “Full frame Equivalence” argument is irrelevant.

What is important is that trying to get a telescope to cover a full frame sensor is VERY expensive. You can get away with very inexpensive 1.5” filters and adapters with m4/3s where as you need the ridiculously expensive 2” filters and adapters for full frame.

A good full frame setup costs about 10x what an m4/3s setup does and gives you about 2-4x benefit in the image quality department.

You can use much smaller and less expensive mounts and telescopes with an m4/3s camera as well. The crop factor actually allows you to use a much faster focal ratio scope and still get the same field of view as a full frame camera reducing exposures times by 1/4.

In reply to:

Andreas Stuebs: How do trhey do it?

Nikon releases a modified versin of the D810 and they get double editorial coverage including a photo spread which shows you …. nothing (or almost nothing)
Canon issues a so so iteration of the M series and get a long article on how they should do things differently. Canon releases two reasonably specked midrange models – but nothing really ground breaking – and again get double exposure. How do they do it? How do they manage to get so much exposure for so little?
Pentax the releases a midrange camera which to all intent and purpose is a strong competition to the Canon offereings – weather sealing, glas prism, the most compact zoom lens offered in the APS-C form factor, arguably better controls, most likely better DR – and what do they get – one item with just a couple of editorial content which also reeks of sarcasm.
How do Nikon and Canon get away with so little and get so much more coverage?

whiners abound

for DP is easy to decide why N & C get better service. Just check the article hit rates.

jojo 53: As it’s specialised and Nikon say it’s not suitable for general photography, you have to wonder why it has a built in flash?

It's for selfies. lmao

In reply to:

Baba Ganoush: This camera, we're told, is highly specialized and designed especially for astrophotography, so why does Nikon display it with a 24mm wide angle lens instead of a long telephoto (or even a telescope)? Does Nikon think this lens is appropriate for astrophotography or are they trying to suggest the D810A has other, more general uses? Seems to me like another case of a disconnect between Nikon and actual Nikon users.

Baba, here's a link that will bring you up to speed.

It's all relative because we have a mind boggling amount of choice.

Antony John: I guess these stats show:
1. More people have mobiles than dedicated cameras.
2. More people carry their mobiles with them more often than cameras.
3. More people with mobiles use Flickr than dedicated photographers.
Otherwise these stats are pretty worthless.

I concur. haha
I shoot Nikon and i stop uploading to Flickr for a number of years already.

In reply to:

James Bligh: As it happens the current Nikon FX DSLRs without issues are D4s, Df and D610. D4s is an arsenal of reportage photographer and Df is a niche product lacking video etc. So Nikon FX DSLR for the mass is practically D610 only I may say.

I've not noticed any in horizontal or vertical shots into the sun for my DF.

In reply to:

Jintana: If I want to buy an FX or Full frame DSLR. I will make sure it is made in Japan. I've worked in Japan for few years and fully understand their quality culture. That's why you won't see this oil spots on Canon albeit the 6D is so so and 5DM3 is overpriced. Just check where your D750 or D600 is made? I guess for Nikon, only their bosses are Japanese but those folks making and checking their cameras had been sub-contracted to the 3rd world somewhere. Good luck!

Doesn't guarantee anything. My made in Japan DF has serious banding issues together with electronics failure within a few months.
Whereas my previous D7000, D90, D200 never had any issues that are remotely close to a failure.

Piermario Autelli: I see in the post, many of Canon FANS who behave trolls.Why?
Here we have a house that seems to return to the Nikon D750 with its historical levels, what's wrong? Canon has not DOMINATED for years and years the market thanks to its economic power? As well as in the media?
Long live the photography, with any camera ....

Nothing changes, the Nikon trolls will enter the Canon cam reviews.

Its never ending. Just don't feed the trolls and laugh because nobody dies. Just some egos get butthurt.

jadmaister2: Another great camera, well done Nikon.
I now have a HUGE choice as to what might replace my D90, but what I really need, since the D90 is good enough for me
are some lessons in creative thinking and framing.
My weaknesses are all my fault. Cameras have been more than good enough (for those who actually understand how to use them) for 10 years or more.
Happy Christmas to all anyway!:)

D90, is still very good for stills from ISO 100-800.
However, if you move to the D750, the IQ would be a big jump esp in DR and noise.

I never understood how good it was till I pulled up detail in shots where the flash didn't fire that was about 4stop underexposed. [D7000] It's even better on FX.

My office Canon 70D however doesn't perform these kind of tricks as well.

I don't think so

I don't think 5DIII AF is behind the times. I'd like Nikon to have more cross type points all the way to the rule of thirds.

Don't these engineers ever read about the golden section or rule of thirds?

For now i have to rely with focus recompose and AF-ON button 'skills'. [or fume when misses]

vesa1tahti: Maybe I'll switch from D7000 to D750. I've a lot of DX lenses; maybe they can be used here in the crop mode (10 Mpix ?). And maybe this has time lapse recording, too? Thanks.

It is lower DOF and vignetting. LOL.

FF pic quality is amazing. After going thru D200> D90 > D7000 > DF. The difference is stuff looks 'juicier' if you can call it that.

Hi ISO is obviously great. ISO 400 on the D200 is like ISO 6400 on the DF. 'Just Usable'

In reply to:

dark goob: I usually post negative things here.

But this time DPReview deserves massive credit for calling it like it is.

The D750 is truly the best camera Nikon's ever put out, hands down. The second I took a picture and looked at how it came out, I just kind of knew that it's worth every penny.

Good job, Nikon. More like this!

Slow down! I haven't fully enjoyed my DF yet! LOL

In reply to:

Ramjager: The 5Dmk3 AF system is "behind the times"!
Talk about garbage hyperbole writing.
41 cross sensors? Seriously.
Maybe rather than writing hyperbole the author should spend some time taking photos that require AF rather than making up utter garbage on a keyboard.
The 1DX focus module is still THE BEST action AF system period and the 5Dmk3 uses that very system.
Typical of DPR these days authors with little if any knowledge of the subjects they discuss is a norm
Wakey wakey DPR stop writing hyperbole based off zero experience.
Given how dated the Canon AF module is 90% of the worlds sports photogs should be upgrading from there 1Dx's that dominate sidelines because it's AF is behind the times!
Yea right.

aha
