  • Thanks everyone for sharing your input. It is greatly appreciated. And Bill, yours was not ignored! :) As I stated, I do have much to learn, but I am a very fast learner. Just a little bit of my ...
  • Just what I was looking for! Great advice about DR latitude in video files. I am a RAW shooter, so it will take some getting used to, for sure. Even though I shoot RAW, I still always expose for ...
  • Greetings to the DVT forum! I have learn a lot of what I know about Photography from the fine folks on DPReview Forums.  Now, as I venture into Videography, I am reaching back to my best ...
  • @Obies1: Unfortunately, the mp count at the 1/1.7" of a 1" sensor would be about 1/3 of the total mp count, or less. This would mean a >6mp resolution @ 200mm, if Nikon were to use the Aptina...

  • I suspect Nikon will produce an enthusiast camera, as you describe.  However, if they are going to reduce the focal length in order to make the thing happen, then I say why bother?  Does Nikon ...
  • I agree.  I would say 4-stars is a fair assessment... Pros: Lens, Sensor Performance is class leading, oodles of External Controls, Rugged Body, 5 Image AE Bracketing, Wireless Flash Control and ...
  • Well, I'll put it this way; my wife and I loved vacationing up here, near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, so much that we decided to move here!  Most of the landscape images in my ...
  • Ahh... I live on the other side of that big, beautiful inland sea, we call Lake Michigan!  :) We are fortunate.  What a great place in the world to live... Regards, Russ
  • I really like how you composed the path on the first photo.  :) Tell me, were about on the Great Lakes were you? Regards, Russ
  • Wow!  It looks as if you used a tripod...  :D Regards, Russ
  • Although the Aptina sensor isn't necessarily "poor", if Nikon did switch from the Aptina sensor, to the Sony 1" sensor, it appears they would change the performance dramatically overnight. Regards, ...
  • Regards, Russ
  • but...why be such a jerk about it??? It might be you aren't familiar enough with what the P7800 is capable of, if your are so down on its image quality.  Perhaps your perspective will change if you ...
  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    Wow...so I have to go to photography school, and work in a camera store, in order to be considered a "Real Photographer"? LOL :D

  • I don't believe anyone made claims against your Coolpix A, so there really is no need to take a jab at anyone.  All of the aforementioned cameras produce great images, both for web and print, ...
  • That was weird, pulling my micro SD card out of my phone, just so I could get some sample images to take home...  :-| Regards, Russ
  • You know, Nikon has been so successful squeezing every little bit of performance out of the sensors they use.  I hope they realize they do not need to play the "Me Too" game, and go with a large ...
  • Agreed... I personally like the concept of the removable EVF, like the one found on the V3.  I trialed that puppy recently, and I was very impressed with the image quality of that EVF. Regards, Russ
