Roll effect? what stupid feature is it? On second thought, it may be useful for disabled people who are semi paralyzed and have problem pressing button on the phone.
Nikon need to be very cautious not to cross the specifications of its full frame siblings.
The mirrorless SLR are DOA. Who wants an expensive half boiled egg in the first place? And there comes camera in a phone...
Why not just send her the files. Save all the unnecessary resources.
Roland Schulz: Hmm, maybe I'm wrong, but why is this all blue in the review?? This lens is soft like a pillow, see in the river shoots at f8! Somewhat sharp in the center but completly butter off center.By the way I'm a Nikon user, not that happy with the extreme corners of the 24-70 2.8G, but what I see here is nothing I would accept.
BTW2: The review from IR is not that all positive, nor the diagram is.
Maybe your photography skills ain't good enough?
Its definitely not from the production. Many of user reported having this after some usage. Its a design issue. e.g. parts rubbing and releasing micro fragments. The fragments is something that may not be removable by the ultrasonic sensor cleaner.
disasterpiece: Thanks, but I'll stick with Nikon.
What does it have to do with Nikon? isn't that a stupid answer?
Phil Hill: Why is the inability of a camera to place phone calls listed under “The bad”? Is this really bad? Did Samsung advertise that ability? Do other cameras have that ability? I understand that most cell phones can also take photos, but I’m not aware of cameras that make phone calls. So how is that exclusively considered bad on this one?
I do get the point that the reviewer would have liked to make a phone call, but is it fair to deduct points for that?
The product exist for the sake of existing. Its just like carrying 2 wallets in your pocket, except one has a coin pouch.
Its the ugliest tough camera in the world, no doubt. I do not want anyone to say, "hey, look at that ugly thing he is using".
AV Janus: Price difference between Alu and Carbon units is ridiculous!I wonder how they came up with that number!?
Carbon stopped being that exclusive and price worthy like 10 years ago...
Alu tubes uses simplest form of extrusion process. Carbon tubes need layering and curing.
Deleted pending purge: So why not use triangular profile for all construction and save maximum space?
If you could think of a tighten mechanism when you extend and retract.
Juraj Lacko: So what is the big deal that everybody is complaining about seeing mobiles on dpreview? All modern phones have build in cameras. BTW those cameras are killers of compact cameras and who knows, maybe in the future they will kill dslr as well... Just dont read article if yu are not interested in phones. Is that so hard?
"maybe in the future they will kill dslr as well"? Yes, maybe when photo journalist use only mobile phones to do their job.
JWest: "the S800c has an advantage over most smartphones of having a removable battery"
Are you an iPhone owner, by any chance? :)
Most smartphones have a removable battery, and have had for a long time. It's mostly just Apple that buck the trend.
Google Nexus phone can't. Please Wake up.
Rachotilko: To DPR team:
to reduce the confusion, would you not consider an article about the f-number equivalence ?
The question "does the need to apply f-number equvalence apply to DOF calculation only or to shutter speed calculation as well" has been hotly debated here for quite a long time.
Some basic lesson in photooptics would silence this, I hope.
There it goes again, debating for no useful purposes.
I thought there is a build in vibration-based dust removal?
I classify those who whine about little things into incapable photographers. Seriously speaking even the lowest grade DSLRs nowadays are so advance and so capable that it would only be the photographers's problem not to have taken good photos. I am still using primitive old 5D with max iso 1600 and very happy with the images.
GarysInSoCal: I waited and waited for what I saw as a worthwhile (and affordable) replacement for my beloved D700... and I have finally found it. Been shooting with the D600 for over 2 months now... LOVE IT! At first I didnt think the extra resolution (12 megapixal VS 24 megapixal) was something that I really needed... but man-o-man was I WRONG! And this camera works even better in low light. Have recently shoot some 64,000 ISO images deep in a local forest with minimal noise... VERY HAPPY with those results as I couldn't accomplish that with my D700. Lenses I've recently used on it with amazing results are the 24-120 F4 Nanocoat ED-VR, 16-35 Nanocoat ED-VR and the 70-300 ED-VR. NO spotty sensor issue and I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
Just look at the raw iso @25600. Its even better than the 5D mk3 and D800.
BitFarmer: The scoring really says nothing: you can only compare with other in the same category, but, D600 is the only one on its own category of "Mid range full frame" while Canon 5D MKIII is on "semi-pro full frame" category.
I can't understand this, they both should be on the same category, at least in my mind they both should share a "non-pro full frames" category so you have to score they both uniformly, and we can really compare.
I am amazed by the raw iso @ 256000 (look at the watch). Its better than the Canon 5D MK 3, which is better than D800.
the coolpix is kindda lame as it has no 3G. Samsung Galaxy Camera does it better. With 3G, you can even make data calls.
Thats what photography is all about. I came across people who owns a Nikon D4 but taking photos that is sub standard. Camera is a tool, just like a knife.
