  • How about SMC*?

  • APSC outsells FF if that's what you mean, but that's mostly down to fewer people being willing to pay out four figures for a camera body...

  • I know, I know. Killjoy. But as much as I don't mind the camera itself, the contrast with the black finish of the lens is jarring and silver would work only marginally better.

  • True, in "limited edition" land this package is very reasonably priced. On the other hand it really is just a different color of paint and some lettering on the camera strap...

    And unlike Leicas,...

  • The camera body and the battery grip are finished in a high-grade gunmetal gray coating to as to not match with either the black or silver colors of interchangeable lenses.


  • Yes, the Grand Prix edition. It wasn't gold though, just gold lettering on the logos. K20 and K7 special editions were silver.

  • Basically proving that Nikon's relatively light touch for lens corrections and noise reduction is worth nothing to typical consumers. They want fast lenses and low noise.

  • "I guess what I'm saying is that I trusted DPR to review cameras. That was my mistake."

    Look, dpreview have a set of criteria, which by and large they are faithful to. They aren't my criteria, and...

  • dpreview loves 1" sensor cameras, as long as they can't take the lens off! :-) Image quality goes from amazing to terrible with the addition of a lens mount. Imagine that!

  • I don't know where you live, but my local electronics store is filled with 4k TVs for sale. Anyone buying a high-end set today would most likely be buying a 4k model. I would.

    So right now content...

  • "Minis" are another class.

  • They are cheap, but that's fine if you don't pay too much for one. Also, they are a lot better than what passed for a cheap tripod 20 years ago.

    (I'm personally with Thom Hogan, "save money by...

  • I don't think the people buying these items need such definitive evidence. Khaldei says its his camera, and if you trust him and want the camera you'll bid on the auction.

    I suppose some people...

  • I hadn't heard that story before. I wonder if the thinking was different in the early day of photography where accurate reproduction was still a novelty: it was more important to get a true point...

  • @Fotogeneticist Yes sure, HDR. I mean apart for that or similar niche applications. General photography, there's really no need.

  • Bracketing is for the belt-and-suspenders crowd. A useless waste of shutter actuations, battery life, and storage resources.

  • Yes, you must restore them to the original states if you want to continue to work on them in CNX. So do that, if you want to, or leave your 8 year old RAW files alone, or continue to use the old...

  • Oooh, harsh!

  • "Correct" is a relative term. No, it doesn't seem to render exactly the same way as older Nikon software *if the RAW file settings have been edited*. It shouldn't have to. I expect and hope that...

  • "Correct" is a relative term. No, it doesn't seem to render exactly the same way as older Nikon software *if the RAW file settings have been previously edited in an older editor*. It shouldn't have...
