In reply to:

blackcoffee17: Not that it really matters but how they going to name the next generation after D500s? D600? :)

D510 sounds logical.

LFPCPH: They will make it fullframe - maybe ...

Not likely at all, but I'd still like to see the old D300 -> D700 -> D3 lineup now. And no, the D750 is not in the picture.

vscd: @dpreview. Will there be a real review this time? The first 1DX had only a preview... until today. Or do I just spell the domain wrong? D-Preview.com ;) Just kidding.

There isn't a full review for the D4, so who knows...

RedDog Steve: Still no hint at the resolution ?

24 MP is a safe guess IMO.

MikeF4Black: That big dial is a bit funny. Wold be great to adjust shutterspeed on the fly, camera to eye, but to engage wifi or other modes? A bit facetious.

Well, while most of the dial positions seem pointless, a dedicated dial for ISO seems like a great idea.

yonsarh: For general purpose photography, d5300/d5500 is enough. For entry level photographer, you don't need 2 SD card slots and U1, U2 settings. You will be l ended up using P or AUTO mode. For start, I would go for D3300 with better quality lens and extra lens rather than getting expensive camera.

What does this have to do with the firmware updates?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but $3000 buys you a full frame DSLR, a prime and a case.

Calvin Chann: So, that puts them how many years behind Canon?

Canon's flash system is totally a match for Nikon's CLS, right?

_sem_: I expected a bigger display...

2.36 M dots means 2000 something by 1000 something, which should be plenty for this physical size.

Jim F: What seems a little strange to me is that there is a 3-minute max on shooting 4K video with the D5, but the D500 can shoot for about 29 minutes plus at 4K. That said, the D500 4K files are split up if one shoots more than 3 minutes or something like that. Just curious that, if the processor is the same for both the D5 and the D500, why are 4K files handled differently?

I am aware that the 4K files are enormous and that there are some practical considerations for vile management and video editing that need to be met. With that said, just wondering why the two cameras handle 4K video a little differently. You would think the D5 would have less 4K video restrictions than the D500. Instead it's the other way around. I'm sure there's a logical reason for all of this, but, given I am no technical expert, the reasoning is lost on me.

But do they have this level of weather sealing?

It doesn't seem that a much larger display can fit without changing the handling drastically; some people may complain if even one button is out of its place compared to the previous model, but most would be fine with the same display size with more resolution.

You can always attach an external one...

From what I got, it's the heat generated during video encoding that's a limiting factor - so even if the D5 and the D500 have the same processing capabilities, it's D5's bigger and more robust body that's the problem - because it's harder to get heat out of it.

drivecancel: I'm a bit surprised it doesn't have a dial for AF-S/AF-C and no metering dial, I don't want to sound like one of the D700 fanboys but damn, this is actually a stepback from that camera. Makes me think the newer pro bodies have less to offer over something like a D750.

Plus, when not tied to a D700-style physical switch, settings can be changed by changing the bank.

In reply to:

disasterpiece: Does it really have a 200-shot buffer, or it just manages to shoot 200 consecutive frames without slowing down when using a fast card?

@Barney Britton: I think that the most objective thing in this case is to say that the buffer has capacity of n frames and that with a fast card, you can probably continuously shoot more. 200-shot buffer would mean that the camera would be able even with a $5 card to shoot 200 frames and only then worry about offloading them (and of course in practice offloading happens as you shoot, not after that, but the objective thing here would be the buffer alone, not buffer + card capacity).

Scottelly: I like the fact that they have given this thing a tilt screen and incredible 200 frame RAW shooting buffer.

That remains to be tested...
