" Galilee" exists only in Bible which is just like every other religious book total and utter science fiction . Use the current name and leave that apartheid monster of the criminal state you are living in.

Paul JM: Erez, a couple of comments refer to the 'DR' of the A7, but surely there is some HDR action going on in post here ?

Agree. Nr 8,7 ,3 and 4 stand out as HDR processed pics. Nice none the less.

On Nikon releases Capture NX-D 1.0.3 and View NX 2.10.2 article (40 comments in total)

I have seen student projects that have less bugs and better performance. History of extremely poor software at Nikon continues. What is up with that ? Can anybody explain how come that such a huge company don't know how to make decent software and why don't they outsource development since they have proven in so many years now that they truly and honestly SUCK at this.

TylerQ: I guess some people have no understanding how great film is. Given it's so called limitations, it's a wonder anyone ever took great photographs before the invention of digital sensors.
I remember shooting and not worrying about changing the iso, checking for image quality after each shot, doing a time lapse, 10-20 fps, etc. All those are just gimmicks.
Real photographers knew how to shoot photographs without all the so called "advantages" of digital cameras. You all should try it some time.

@ Wye Photography
Could you one of those old geezers that actually find "digital" hard since all the options confuse you ? Ok then, now I get it.

And if we stretch your philosophy a little we could say that calculators, computers, cars, Xray and other tech is also redundant since "we were able to survive without it.".
Go put a blanket over yourself.

Timmbits: <30min video limitation?
is this really necessary?
hope someone comes out with a hack.

So I am troll for correcting you and teaching you difference in video cameras and DSLRs with video functions ? I am troll for pointing out the idiocy of "strapping on a 1kg of photo equipment" when there are GoPros and such out there ? In that case I am a troll. But unlike morons trolls can change. An intellectual imbecile will always be just that, an imbecile.

Now you "idiot whisperer" who was it that wrote: " But when I have a camera strapped to my body, while mountainbiking or road touring, (hiking, rock climbing, or in an underwater housing while diving), I can't afford to take my eyes off the trail or the road to see if it is still recording or if I have to press record again"
Go strap on yourself or your bike 1kg of camera equipment and ride/hike/climb on. And it seems that only your father and brother got intellect in family, I guess you are on your mothers side ?

VIDEO cameras are different. This is STILLS camera with video function. And do google little bit about sensors, heating and such. Also if you want to record yourself biking get something smaller like Go Pro or such. Striping on 1Kg body+ lens on a bike would be just silly. I don't "dictate" anything. These cameras are used in different manner then Go Pros. And they don't need more then 29:59 since 99.9% of people using DSLRs or mirrorless for video know that they NEED to do many different takes/scenes that are VERY much shorter then 30 minutes or audience falls a sleep. It is called "good film making" Google that as well.

There ARE amazingly many taking xtremely boring videos. What you don't seem able to understand is that this limit only applies to shooting continuous 29:59 then what you need to do is press record again. And I wonder bar interviews WHY would you need more time ? Can you picture video where you are looking at one take that is more then 30 minutes long ? You do realize that 99% of the audience would be firmly asleep by then ? Also there is this issue of sensor heat. Without some form of cooling, heat sinks or even fans that sensor would burn out quite soon.

Hawaii-geek: Hope there is going to be a AF-C Test between the APS-C - 7D m2, D7100, A77 m2 ... ALL with there 70-200mm f2.8 zooms ... 1 minute BURST.

And see which has the BEST Balance of fps and HIT Rate.
So, it's MOST HITS in a 1 min. Burst. :)

None of those cameras can "burst" for a minute kids.

They are on the way. Sure you can afford one ? Because if you could you would know that those are coming.

It's a EU tax thing. Any camera with more then 29 min and 59 sec is considered a VIDEO camera and is taxed higher.
And why would you need more then 30 minutes without cutting to something else ??? That makes for one xtremely boring video.

falconeyes: IMHO, there is something wrong with the US national park concept.

Compared to, e,g., Europe, the Alps in particular,, only a fraction of the US is preserved for giving priority to nature. No signs to restrict building activities outside national parks. So it seems to Europeans. Where are all the opportunities to hike and spend time in nature, outside nat. parks? And why is access to nat. parks restricted and costing money. It shouldn't. It is just nature. The US is so sparsely populated compared to Europe that it seems almost absurd. And to restrict photography of US nature certainly IS absurd.

And there it was, a first redneck comment. Congrats. Now go back to having sex with your sister or cousin.

Paul Amyes: My my a lot of people are getting very worked up here. I've read through the press releases and it sounds like what they're proposing is what we've had here in Australia for a long time. Basically huge production with big budget and crew to be distributed on a large scale pay for a permit. Solo operators doing fine art and media won't.

Here I shot material in many national parks for books, cardsand print sales and I've never had to pay a cent. Lat time I applied for a permit I was in the office at the same time as a small crew from a German TV production unit they paid a small fee. I chatted to the guy on the desk and he said the biggest fee charged was for feature films with international releses.

You'll probably find that there has been an adhoc arrangemnt for years where film and TV companies pay fees and all this is about making it formal and consistently applied.

You sound very knowledgeable about US bureaucracy for someone who does not even live in the country but instead on a continent far far away..

Lawrencew: I guess the comments of DPR's photographer community are not surprising.

However, I have little doubt these will sell out very quickly. If you have ever been to Harrods or Selfridges - the only places you can buy this - and seen the hoards of Asian female tourists buying anything with a brand on it, you will know why. This will be another must have for trendy young rich Chinese, Japanese and Korean women.

You might not like it as a photographer, but Canon and Stella know it will sell.

Stella could not care less. She already got her money for design and lending a name.

whataboutan EF-S 15-85mm f2.5 STM?
and a 7DMkIII (has Vari-Angle Swivel Screen: touchscreen)
dual-pixel PDAF across larger portion of image sensor

make both black, please.

You would not like to have that big heavy and not very good zoom!And if they decided to make it optically good, you would not be able to afford it. You really NEED to learn some physics and optics before making those dumb wishes !
