On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1741 comments in total)
In reply to:

RLJSlick: Love what I see so far! Look forward to the full review.

Since the AF module in the D750 appears to be a DX version of the improved 51 point AF from the D4S and D810, I would say it is sure thing it will be in Nikon's next top end DX camera.

Until the D7100 successor comes out. All that camera needs to give this one a run for it's money is a couple more fps and a bigger buffer.

On Niko announces service advisory for D810 'bright spots' article (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: Look at the bright side. No oil or dust was involved in this recall.

This sounds like a very minor issue that only affects a small number of cameras, and Nikon will fix them all for free. I suppose Nikon learned their lesson from the D600 fiasco. I'm sure no one at Nikon wants to go through that again.

Yeah in the past Nikon probably would have just kept quiet and repaired any D810s with the problem that came in for warranty service. But they learned the real lesson of the D600 fiasco. In the era of social media and the internet even a small problem effecting a limited number of units can become overblown to a brand damaging disaster. You have get in front of it or you will be run over by it.

some nice shots but as I say nothing spectacular just photos any armature photographer could have taken them

tom1234567,

You have missed the entire point the this article. This article was just about how well the D810, a camera that due to it's high megapixel count would traditionally be considered unsuitable for sports, could handle such a situation. It was not promoting the D810 as the best or only choice for making these types of photos.

In reply to:

PeterPaul: There's no doubt the D810 is a good camera but I agree withTom G. You could get the same results with a point & shoot. Dpreview is obviously lacking for a real test of an over $3k camera but then again the target audience is guys that own pro gear and shoot birds on a bird feeder or endless test shots.

"You could get the same results with a point & shoot."

Thanks for letting me know you have no idea what you are talking about so I shouldn't read the rest of your comment. Saved me some time.

@ Bill Bentley

Yeah pretty much every photo comp by large corporations are nothing more than a way to get nearly free marketing content. They are basically exploiting photographers who should be getting paid real money for the commercial usage rights for their work instead of being "paid" with a tiny chance to win some trinket.

they reply this on their own something BIG teaser

OMG you're right the last reply to the teaser post on their facebook page is from them and it just has a link to the photo competition page. I guess they realized they were getting peoples hopes up and had to limit the damage lol.

On Canon India teases 'something big' coming soon article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

Primus: Read the blurb again 'Get your camera ready, something BIG is coming'. Then look at the camera body in the teaser which is a 1-series. This clearly means the new gadget is NOT a camera but a lens. Now, since the word 'big' is where the accent is, it means a big lens. The 1-series suggests it would not be cheap since it is probably aimed at pros or advanced amateurs/enthusiasts.

All adds up to a new 100-400L or similar. I for one cannot wait. Sick of my buddy shoving his new Nikon 80-400 MkII in my face every time we go out to shoot.

No look at their facebook page. It appears to be just a photo competition.

Donnie G: Doesn't matter whether you love em or hate em, these Canon superzooms will outsell all of their mirrorless competitors combined. And Canon will continue to make tons of money while the rest of the industry starves due to lack of interest from the average consumer. Only gear heads are concerned with specs, and they make up less then 10% of camera sales. These cameras are being sold to the 90% of consumers who are not camera geeks. Deal with it!

Exactly! All the people who are in the market these cameras are intended for will care about is that the cameras say Canon on them and that they have that HD thing everyone is taking about and a really high "X" for the zoom.

mpgxsvcd: Why would anyone choose the SX520 over the Panasonic FZ200? They are both right around $400 but the FZ200 has all of these features below.

Constant F2.8 25mm-600mm lens. Seriously no one can effectively hand hold even 600mm. You don't need more than that.

1080p @ 60 FPS video and 120 FPS 720p video.

12 FPS continuous burst mode.

plenty of people will choose it because it is sitting on the shelf at their local wal-mart and it has a name they recognize for cameras on it.

In reply to:

alcaher: The good thing about this camera is that rummors are becoming real.... the d800s was rumored months ago and i think some sites predicted it was coming on june.... so maybe there will be D300s replacement on august, finally!!

Now with 5fps and faster performance (on paper), i dont know if people would considerthe new D810 a truly D700 replacement.

Well the D810 does 7 fps in DX crop mode with the grip so it could actually be an upgrade path for people on D300s as well.

In reply to:

mfahim27753: I am interested in finding out more details on some of the improvements:

* 1200 shots per charge (D800/E is 900) - What has changed to bring this improvement.

* Base ISO 64 - Just some more details, particularly if this sensor is any better at dynamic range than D800/E

* Prism coating

I won't be changing my D800E in near future, but would be nice to get some more details on these improvements. Lets see how long it takes for someone to release a full review.

Me too. I would also love ot know what the raw buffer is, especially in the 1.5 crop. If it's decent enough this camera could be a reasonable upgrade to people on D300s and they would even get a great FX camera as well as a bonus.

TheBaldEagle: I wish/hope that the new high ends Nikon Cameras (like D810) have at least 4K video output (even in APS-C crop size) for other recorders in order to compete well with Sony Alpha 7S and others 4K capable cameras because 4K is the future (next several years) for high end video!

@ET2 Exactly. Heck on most of the affordable cable plans you only get a handful of HD channels. HD hasn't even fully replaced SD yet and people are already talking 4k. It's absurd. At this point 4K is nothing but a spec for camera geeks to brag over.

I have been thinking PS needed something like this since I first learned about layer masks. I'm glad adobe has finally done it. It looks like it will be very useful.

tkbslc: I might finally cave.

That's about 5 years of $10 a month to add up to the retail cost of buying the software retail before.

@tkblsc
Plus you also get more frequent updates and bug fixes so I think it's a very fair price IMO.

The point ,that you seem to be intentionally missing, is that you are rolling the dice with a third party battery and you not only KNOW the Nikon battery is not likely going to give you trouble but on the very, very low chance that it does the battery AND the camera are backed up by a reputable brand's warranty.
