On article DxOMark confirms Canon EOS 1D X II sensor advances (169 comments in total)

As someone said, seems like Nikon have stopped giving free sample cameras to DxO.

Wait, it didn't have D9 in the first place?

larrytusaz: No 3.5" or 1/8" headphone jack. I'm so sick of that sort of nonsense. Everyone wants to be all "proprietary" that way. Why can't they just stick with the universal standard? Heck I'd just about approve of companies being MADE BY LAW to stop doing that sort of nonsense.

"There is no 3.5mm headset jack but a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter is included."

By the way, what's that 3.5" standard you're talking about?

Would've been nice to see shots that would benefit from the VC.

Edymagno: Near perfect specs. But the lack of built-in flash ruined it completely for me.

I think it's a move to promote sales of the SB-5000. Using a body with a built-in flash, you can control an external flash. With the D500, you must either buy the new wireless transmitter and the SB-5000 or at least two flashes so that one acts as a controller.

riman: I wonder if some of the complaints are coming from people with bad monitors? These are as good as the ones from my D750..yet I read all these complaints....I mean how can someone say they are disappointing? What am I missing?

@hydrospanner - Everyone wants something, but it's the market as a whole that dictates what is made and sold.

In reply to:

Thematic: Uh oh. Very disappointing image quality.

I was praising this camera because 2 friends own it and said the picture quality was as good as the FF Nikon D750. These pictures, and the RAWs they sent me are underwhelming.

At the end of the say its a tool for speed and the 1.5x crop people need but I can't image anyone shooting portraits, fine art, macro, landscape, architecture etc using this over a cheaper Pentax K-1 or the Nikon D750.

As for the price people are complaining about - No issue with me there, Pentax is the value champ but the Nikon mount is great for their lineup and Zeiss Milvus options.

Next up is Sonys a9 and the Canon 5DMK4.

Fun times!

@Thematic You're complaining about a photo taken in awful conditions. When did you last shoot live music using only available light?

Some sub-ISO 1000 shots look questionable to me and then there's a shot at ISO 14400 that is also pushed more than 1 EV up and yet it looks totally usable to me. I guess I'm starting to look for reasons NOT to buy it.

I think that this is a camera that will keep many from stepping up to FX. Unless, of course, Nikon releases a full frame with the features of the D500 and at only slightly higher price.

In reply to:

Boky: Undeniably a great camera. Very sharp, in particular with fast Nikkor lenses. But.... something is not right with the colour saturation / color cast. I am pretty sure the results are close to natural, but..... when I check that Canon 80D... my hart warms up and I simply enjoy those Canon colors better.

That being said, Canon shots do look muddy... sharpness-free... ahhh well....

This may be up to taste or up to what you're used to. To me, most Nikons have neutral or close to neutral tone whereas many Canons look kind of warm.

Is it just me or do the D810 images look better?

A messenger bag can take a lot of stuff, so no surprises there.

No $7000 price tag either, so...

TorsteinH: Why did Nikon include the basically unusable high ISO settings?

"Unusable" for someone would be "a picture or nothing" for someone else.

Gesture: I'm usually critical of pricing, but considering what the D7200 goes for, I'd concede that at $2,000 (and likely to go down), the D500 is an attractive proposition. Too bad Nikon is slow in many areas, but no doubt the higher end DSLRs are exceptional cameras.

@Max Iso I don't know what you're shooting, but I know that the D800 and the D500 are vastly different cameras. Given that the D800 is old-ish already and that the two sensors have around the same pixel density, I'd bet that the D500 gets you the same or better picture if looking pixel by pixel. But other than that, how would a D500 replace a D800?

In reply to:

ju2au: This is not a "pro" level feature; it is something that should be available on all DSLRs.

@photominion what does does RAW vs. JPEG have to do with focus precision? If a photo is not properly focussed, it will be seen in a JPEG just as well as in a RAW.

Link | Posted on Apr 23, 2016 at 15:12 UTC

I saw in the video a value of +14. Is it still a range of +20 to -20? If so, what happens if the calibration value can't fall in this range?

Now I wonder where the D500 will stand. If it's even half as good as that, it will be killer.

In reply to:

ozturert: Looks very good. But then D4 was very good too, and even D3s...
And can we see real low light photos, where you don't use 1/1000 shutter speed?

Yeah, I agree that it would be a different picture when getting to the point when you actually need to raise the ISO because you can't afford to lower the shutter speed.

The D5 surely is a beast of a camera, but it doesn't have an excuse not to be one at this price point.

martindpr: ISO 100,000 is the roof for anything usable. It's enough!

"Usable" for you may be different from "usable" for someone else.
