  • Sorry. Thom isn't the objective type. He is trying to show that he is capable of seeing both sides of the story.
  • Replied in Patience
    IMO, Nikon is now aware of the demand for small, light and powerful. But, Nikon is a large manufacturer that covers users across a wide spectrum. Traditionally, the small-light customers have been ...
  • As many of you have noticed, Thom has a love/hate relationship with Nikon. This week, he has the love... "What Nikon Has Done Right ...With the exception of the missing D300s replacement, Nikon has ...
  • I'll go with the Samsung Pro. Meanwhile, I got a humble Class 10 Sandisk 8gb. I'll run the camera through its paces and report back.
  • Replied in Thanks
    That's running a bit close to 10 MB/s. The next generation will probably require U3, IMHO.
  • Thanks. Do me a favour. Do you know what is the data speed of the 1080p60 files? My V1 1080p30 was producing 25 Mbps.
  • Created discussions What memory card for J4/V3?
    Thinking of buying a J4 for its 1080p60 and 720p120 video. What memory card are you using? I'm looking at a 16gb U3 (minimum of 30 MB/sec). Do the fast U1 (minimum of 10 MB/sec) work okay for large ...
  • Playing percentages is a self-defeating game. More important are the inspired moments. You can have one great photo from an inspired session or a hundred. How often do you have inspired moments? It ...
  • The problem with certain enthusiasts is that they are enthusiastic about prophecy, not photography. Experienced photographers look for smaller, and better and cheaper. They will shift when the real ...
  • May the saints preserve us! Another important opinion on the next big thing. First, no one knows what photography will look like ten years from now. The DSLR replacement could be a hybrid VF. In ...
  • These are buyers who need another fix ASAP. They want the best, the latest, the newest, and they want it NOW at the lowest price. When frustrated, they kick and yell. Just ignore them.
  • Market disruptions do not often occur. Sony tried a hybrid VF. Failed! Nikon challenges MF with 36mp. Success! Nikon prices it at an insane $3k. For the first time. photographers like me are making ...
  • However, a longer perspective suggests that Canikon is fine. DSLR sales to remain high. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54196004 http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54196139 Repeat nonsense ...
  • Good point
  • Replied in To be fair ...
    ... you don't need pro equipment to do interesting work. Photography (like art) is the realm of ideas and intentions. Even with a compact camera, you can create what the mind sees. http://www.dprev ...
  • Good equipment allows me to do things that I couldn't before! Learning and growing. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/42428311 http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53563318 http://www.dpreview.com ...
  • That the DSLR owners who prefer MILC are not fully exploiting the capabilities of DSLR. therefore, MILC is the better fit for them. Of course, there are many novices who do good work with DSLR and ...
  • Could be a lot of real improvements. At least 1080p60 (Expeed4). Maybe 720p120 from V3. Maybe D4000 has 39-point AF and D6000 has 51-point AF. A D8000 could be the D300 successor. Nikon would sell ...
  • I'll repost this from the Nikon forum. "DSLR sales peaked in 2011/12 after the introduction of a new product cycle. For Nikon, that's the D3000 (late 2009). D5000 (mid 2009), D7000 (late 2010). ...
  • Yet, that anger and need is there. Not to be ignored. Consider Ferguson, MO. It is much harder to capture the interior space behind the eyes.
