I will not take anything less than a 24 carat gold diamond studded body .
dark goob: I am getting the one made from baby skin
As if Siberian Tiger cubs are less precious than human babies!!! You are even more gross than him. His was a bad joke at worst.
PHOTOboy73: Face and Nipple recognition?! I did not see that, that is pure genius. If a camera had that mode I would be first in the line. I agree with these guys in London it is underwhelming and has no inovation.
Sorry that makes no sense, here is the link:www.photography-factory.co.uk/photographyreviews/2012/01/nikon-d4-review-the-wrong-camera-too-late-16mp-1080p-30-hd-video-iso-12000-xqd-is-that-it-v-canon-5d-hasselblad-h4d-pentax-d645/
"what I personally dislike is excessive automation."
Says the person who is asking to drive a camera with voice and thoughts.
Shockrr07: Maybe its just me, but why are we putting video on DSLr's ? For one the video isnt good at all and the sound is garbage, yeah it might be good if there was somehting you really wanted to get a video of, but why wouldnt you just take a picture instead ? I feel like its only going to make the cost of the camera more expensive for something that is obsolete. If i want to spend 6k+ on a camera thats going to shoot video then im going to buy a video camera, not a DSLR.
Please correct me if i am wrong. If the camera is recording video then the sensor is constantly working. Over the life time of the camera will this have more wear on the camera than just taking pictures ?
Finally, I am currently a nikon user and have been for a while. But does it seem like nikon is playing catchup with the MP ? I know nikon has amazing metereing and color realization but seeing as a shoot sports its would be nice to be able to crop a shot i wasnt perfectly framed on and not decrease my image qual as much.
Shooting videos is VERY different from shooting stills at professional level. I doubt a professional will really use it as a still + video camera. At that level equipments tend to be specialized, not generic.
Muskokaphotog: I'm surprised no one commented on the fact the D4 requires a new kind of battery. Besides that, it took Nikon long enough! Anyone with a D3, who tried out a D7000 would find a lot to like about this smaller, lighter body with better low light. I hope the D4 is even better. I am also surprised the D4 stuck with CF cards. Most computers come with slots for SD cards now. I'll wait a bit, when the price comes down. I sold my D3 and D3x in anticipation.
That's what people do when they must talk about something. Like what kinda cards can take most abuse.
Philippe Mathon: "Because this is all web-based, you don't have to physically close to the camera either - in principle you could operate it from a different continent."
Really? It has a public ip? v4 or v6?
You don't seem to know how these things work. If every device with such a capability stared to ship with a public IP address, we will need IPV8 within a year. That's not how things are supposed to work. Do some reading on basics of networking.
Canon and Nikon days are gone. Consumers (not enthusiasts and pros) are going to embrace the Sonys, the Pannys, they Olys.
magneto shot: dont waste time on these small sensors if u looking for IQ. go 4/3rd. the sensor size difference is huge and so is the IQ.
But I bought an LX5 and I am good for the time being. It really doesn't hurt to have a small sensor if I have the LX5. Its really not that behind the 4/3rds of the same generation.
Am I really the first to comment?
Okay then, I am wondering why I have never tried Instagram before. Let me join the bandwagon. Even if just a tad late.
IcyVeins: 27 is a newbie's idea of a wide angle lens. 24 is a skilled photographer's idea of a wide angle lens.
F/2.8 is a newbie's idea of a fast prime. F/1.8 is a skilled photographer's idea of a fast prime.
Oh oh! With a sensor this small, may I ask for f/1.0 at all focal lengths till 300mm?
acassino: NEWS FLASH FOR NIKON: if you are afraid of being your own best competition SOMEONE ELSE will be your best competition.
Nikon is crumbling under pressure. Its like someone is forced to open his mouth to speak. He doesn't know what to say, so he utters some garbage. This looks like Nikon wanted to do "something new". No idea what it would be. So here you have, Nikon 1.
My only complaint is that the bodies are too big for sensors this small. And yes, do they really mean to give f/3.5-5.6 lenses. I thought smaller sensor could allow us to produce incredibly fast lenses like f/2.8-4.0 at 500mm. Unless that happens, I don't see why a new sensor size and and new mount. Target are first time buyers of course! Nikon DSLR users need no apply. Just wait for the next announcement for the refreshment of DSLR line up.
JonathanJK: The sensor size diagram should be at actual size no? Otherwise you don't understand how small they actually are.
Like you will really be able to tell them apart on a monitor with 182 ppi?
After seeing the preview samples I have to admit that that the output looks cleaner than that from G12. Per pixel sharpness is better as well. But where my G12 excels is the color saturation and JPEG processing. OOC JPEG from G12 has more pop.
eyedo: I've been with Nikon(again) since last year started with them in the 1970s,switched to Canon and back with Nikon--all pro gear.For compact cameras,this year I purchased and returned,Leica X1,Lumix Lux 5,Fuji x100,Panny Pen camera w/20mm pancake,Canon G12 and lastly Olympux xz1.
The other day I received the Canon s95 and out of all of the above cameras,this is my favorite as far as IQ,speed of focus and ease of use.
Fuji x100 took great photos,however it missed focus on certain occasions.
I was counting on this Nikon being 'purse worthy' but it sounds like a 'we just fixed the Nikon P7000! 'The P7000 is on my stock photo agencies 'Unacceptable camera list' so the P7100 may or may end up there as well.
You are surely good at cracking jokes. I suggest you take up stand up comedy as career. You can make more than you claim you do with photography.
jimby_99: I think that Sony really needs to look up the definition of "translucent." The last thing I want is a translucent mirror. A semi-transparent mirror would be more like it.
sj2: Very tempted by these Sonys. Very impressive line-up but I am going to say no. Sony is pure evil.
At Cy Cheze, how are others able to do better?
ms18: APS-C 24Mp must be more noise. Already loosing some light by SLT mechanism
Prognathous, I doubt you have read the page you linked. If you did read, I doubt you understood it as well. The page you are referring to clearly states - "Such comparisons conclusively show better results overall for high-resolution sensors, despite the increase in noise.". So whereas IN PRINTING the overall result might be better, there is no denying that the noise will be more. I know you are determined not to be convinced.
