On Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article (268 comments in total)
In reply to:

CaPi: Nice looking camera.
I bought the D5300 a while ago because of GPS and nice specs on her. (Nearly identical do this D5500 btw). I sent her back after a few days. Why? If you are used to DSLRs and classical Nikons the way I am, the layout of the buttons and functions felt all wrong to me. I needed forever to get her to do what I want. Might be the case here too + to my mind touchscreens are overrated if you generally prefer to use the VF.

Higher-end cameras usually have one click zoom to 100% at the focus point.

In reply to:

raztec: Wow! A .95x magnification viewfinder with 100% coverage. What other company offers that in a DSLR? Even the FF from Nikon and Canon have puny viewfinders in comparison.

The experience of shooting with a nice bright viewfinder is such an engaging experience, that alone is worth switching systems for.

You're either trolling or going to let me disappoint you: the 4-year old Nikon D7000 has exactly the same specs for the viewfinder and so do many other cameras from this class. The numbers you're seeing are not absolute but rather relative to the frame size.

On WaterWeight rethinks the sandbag approach to stability article (78 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Guba: These have been around for years. As for myself I own sand bags but when in a pinch I just brought a couple gallon jugs of water for $.99 and tied a piece of string to them $.02. The price goes down significantly if you happen to save the containers from something else. I guess if I wanted to get fancy I could use one of my dry bags $18 and fill it with water, they also have a "port" large enough to accompany other things. It is laughable how anxious some people are to spend there money.

Because at least for me, a perfectly valid point can sometimes be ruined by bad grammar.

taffytubby: Water and electricity- studios shouldn't consider this product.

Why wouldn't you own a nice, heavy enough tripod if you own a studio?

Bring a rope; find a rock or something; tie it to the tripod; TADA - you just saved $105.

In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: Poor Canon and Nikon, they are stuck in the past with 1080p DSLRs while companies like Samsung have cameras like the NX1 with cinema 4K and 15fps with AF.

Say again, how many shots are you getting off a single battery with a mirrorless?

In reply to:

rfsIII: You know why Nikon cameras are so screwed up? Because of you people and your negative comments. The engineers at Nikon are people with feelings just like you and when they read these words—even in translation—it must be devastating to their professional pride and their egos.
So instead of innovating boldly and giving us amazing cameras, they design out of hurt feelings and confusion and fear of further criticism. Hence, we get timid cameras that are confusing. Creative people thrive on positive feedback. You need to praise the good behavior, ignore the bad.
So, if you don't like what Nikon is doing, you have only yourselves to blame.

If things depended solely on engineers, we wouldn't be using intentionally crippled-to-fit-a-niche cameras.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!!! This news was actually a decoy. What Nikon is really going to launch is an FX camera with 36 MP, no aniti-aliasing filter, shutter speed of 1/16000, 80 fps, 16K video and 1/1000 sync. It will be sold as the D610 OTT and will cost USD $200 with a new 14-50 f/0.9-1.8 G VR XPTO Varilux kit zoom lens, with optional, cost-free provision for tea and toast. Shame it doesn't include a lens hood, which will be available for USD $400.

You should apply for a marketing director at Nikon.

_P: If by any chance Sigma marketing is sweeping through forums in order to gather hints for product demands then I'd suggest next Prime Art lent to be 135mm/2 or maybe even /2.8

Any supporters? :)

@kribee2: I don't see how Nikon's 135 f/2 DC is a bad lens. Moreover, there's possibly a 135 f/1.8 coming soon from Nikon.

peevee1: Nikon 58/1.4 just lost all its market.

Wasn't one of the goals of the 58 f/1.4 to perform well with light sources in the frame wide open (which it does, seemingly)? I have yet to see the Sigma in that scenario.

In reply to:

meanwhile: 9 pictures and not one of someone actually *gripping* the camera?

Came here to say that. This is, from what I read, the most questionable thing about this camera, and looks like we have to wait for an actual review.

In reply to:

Gaëtan Lehmann: In “for larger less such as the XF 55-200mm”, “less” should probably “lens”.

I would be interesting to have a comparison of the focusing speed of various cameras. I remember to have been impressed by the focusing speed of the olympus two years ago, and not so impressed by many others. I wonder how fuji AF compares to olympus AF.

Do Fuji still have misconceptions about AF?
I mean I used an older model a while ago and it had a very strange behaviour - switching to Continuous AF made the camera begin tracking focus when 'idle' and then locked it when the shutter is half-pressed - is it just me, or this is counter-intuitive? This was an old-ish, compact bridge-type model, but I've read it's the same with more recent ones.

Dual core Core i5 at 1.3 GHz and just 4 GiB of RAM (for the standard configuration) sound to me a bit shabby for serious photo processing.

HeyItsJoel: How about that. A Mac vs. Windows debate in a Photography forum.

I bet somewhere in a Computer forum, they're debating Nikon vs. Canon.

Glad you didn't word it 'Mac vs. PC'.
