Congrats Nikon....well deserved.
jkokich: There isn't one complainer in this forum who wouldn't LOVE to get his hands on one of these!
Denial: Psychology failure to acknowledge an unacceptable truth or emotion or to admit it into consciousness, used as a defense mechanism: you're living in denial .
chris_van_bc: Can someone please explain what sense does it make to have a 2048 x 1536 resolution on a 9.7" screen?
Essai...whaaat??! Judging form your and others comments about how lame this iPad update is, I only assumed you could point us all to the devices on the market that surpass the new iPad...yet you can't! "Apple sucks" but there isn't anything on the market better. Wow, what does that say about Android products and innovation? Dare I say it? They play follow the leader. All of this and you can't see how unreasonable you're being. Amazing.
aerorail: can someone explain to me this apple thing...i don't get itnevermind it won't make sense no matter what is written
minimal improvements since electronics are having a hard time finding new things that make sense same as phones and tv
QUICK run out and buy one!!
You mean... like the 3.5 year 5d3 update from 21MP to 22MP? That wouldn't be a fair characterization would it? Neither is yours of the new iPad.
ybizzle: Apple fan boys rejoice!
Other than the display, nothing ground breaking here...
That's like saying..."other than the 80MP sensor, nothing special about the IQ180 camera." Marginalization at its finest. I think you forgot the quad core processor, 73Mbps capable, etc. I'm sure if Apple found the cure to cancer, your response would be "meh". I certainly don't think Apple is the be-all-end all, but no need to put down everything they *create* either.
Earthlight: Must. Get. One.
The only people more ridiculous than the Apple fanboys are the Apple haters.
Very nice update to an already wonderful device. May have to grab one.
Natan Lorenzi: It isn't fair, with controlled light, and NR strong, it'll never show the real low light capacity of this camera. To prove what i'm saying, here is a sample shoot by me with a Nikon D90 + AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G @ iso 6400 f/10 and 1/3s. That is great result, clean with details and low noise, with controlled light.
what you think about that? We need real life samples!
"Default" NR setting..wow..then I don't wanna see "strong". I have a feeling this cycle of new cameras is going to be very enlightening.
Yikes...sure, they're clean of noise, but clean of detail too. Serious NR smearing happening.
Alfonso Bresciani: prob is (hope I am wrong) the iso improvement is on JPGs mostly
yep. My expectations are not high.
robogobo: As stated in the article, there's a third party app that was just released for converting old FCP projects to FCPX, called 7toX. Here's the link to the Mac Apps Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/7tox-for-final-cut-pro/id496926258?mt=12
Paul (above) is spot on. For solo editors, FCPX may be awesome, but in multi-user, pro workflow environments...forget it. And this is what Apple delivers after years of waiting for a real upgrade?!? Yowsa.
Relying on third party solutions that make my workflow a convoluted mess is NOT a "solution". I'm on the same ship with Paul. Maybe in 5 years when most of LA / NY etc have gone tapeless, I'll reconsider...kinda doubt it though.
Word is Premiere CS6 is gonna rock!
Will tethering be fixed???
