richard cohen: Nikon does not seem to want to learn anything on pricing. The v1, while a really good first effort, was vastly overpriced so they ended up dumping them. The v2 is also vastly overpriced but I think they decided not to make many of them so you just don't see many people using them. I fear the same will be the result here....people will buy cheaper alternatives (which will be everything else) and these will languish. Nikon better not make many of these because they won't sell many at anywhere near this price.
Also, with the evf and grip it looks a lot like the v2...and it looks like if you attach the evf you can't use an external flash.
The em10grip is $60 not $150
Rob Bernhard: [[Americans also seem to prefer bigger cameras. Sales for the Rebel SL1 have not been as great as we expected in America, for example. We've received some complaints about it being too small. But in Japan and Asia we don't see any complaints about that. So we have to be mindful of the differences between regions.]]
It's a shame the SL1 is not selling well, but I suspect it's more about price than size. Certainly there are those that truly need a larger camera, and there are those who measure their virility by the size of their camera, but a lot of people do want a smaller camera with good performance. The SL1 checks a lot of boxes. But it does so at $750 in the big box stores (with lens). Canon has been offering incentive/discounts but I think it's too little too late.
I saw it at CostCo and it is a beautiful little slr but it only comes with a big honking zoom lens (kinda ruins the appeal of small).Don't know why they didn't kit it with the 40mm.
locke_fc: And it only took them a year and a half to establish that
@Spectro: and not with free shipping, about $45 for me.
Nuno Souto: Nup, sorry, Nikon. 17 months to finally admit there is an issue and even then it's a service advisory rather than a recall?I'm sooo glad I gave up on this company and went m4/3 all the way two years ago!Sick and tired of the disaster Nikon has turned into, at my expense and others who have used their products for decades...
falconeyes: Am I missing something?
Nikon acknowledges the issue but shows no signs of sincere apopolgy?
Because "the presence of dust particles cannot be completely avoided"?
Can anybody beat them in arrogance?
In comparison, we can only now appreciate how Pentax apologized in an almost identical situation:-> http://support.pentaximaging.com/node/1214
I have voted with my dollars and am loving my new e-m10. Thank you Nikon for your distain.
Amazing the power of a lawsuit!
even free shipping, nice but i guess only US customers had the problem?
AbrasiveReducer: Just out of curiosity, the battery says "Cell made in China, further processed in Japan". I understand wanting to get "Japan" in there but I wonder what sort of processing they do and why it's necessary.
Pricing determined in Japan ;-)
Yxa: Let's see which of the functions the D800 will get of the D4s newrecalibrated AF algorithms, Group AF mode, RAW SIZE S and the "ability to customize the color of the LCD monitor to better match studio monitors or personal preference"
In my many years I have never seen Nikon update functionality in FW. Did the D600 get the new white balance algorithms? But then again they are careening wildly downhill so you never know where they will bounce next.
Cheezr: ok i officially give up! you got me Barney!so where is the link to read the interview?if i click interview it takes me to a list of interviews and if i click the d4s title it takes me back here, if i click any of the labels above the "you may also like" they just circle around but afaik there is no link to the interview.
If this is a test i surrender and maybe this is why there are only 5 comments, something broken???
Then I would say, Images with commentary by Nikon as generally an interview has questions and answers... Sadly, on my laptop everything below the images was not on screen but now i get it. thanks

DPReview is being a little over eager, this is the Adobe Labs beta for ACR 8.4 and you need to use their links because the usual Adobe updaters will not pick it up until it is a released product.I just installed it (it comes with an installer) and it works in both LR CC and PS CC
Very aggressive price point, finally!
Here is my test. I took an image at ISO 12800 in decent light and converted it in Adobe Camera Raw CC, Aperture (latest), DxO8 and DxO9. Below are the links to the dropbox files, enjoy.PS in both DxO I used default but smart lighting to medium and luminance to 15Aperture was apple defaults and ACR adobe defaults

Original DNG (Pentax K5IIs) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31373150/K5211836.DNG
also btw, DxO8 took 11 seconds to export and DxO9 took 2 minutes 7 seconds (both as reported by the software). Both on a Mac Mini i7 w/8GB ram and SSD
If Nikon had added wifi to the D610 it would have been an honorable upgrade, too bad they missed the boat.
How funny, Richard!Have you forgotten the Imperial weight system so easily (ok I admit Metric is miles better).
In any case "which helps push the weight of the camera to 813g (12.7oz)" last time I checked 813g was equivalent to 28.67oz.
Your words drive fear into the hearts of japanese executives!
P.S. I love your friend's tattoo of the measuring tape, my imagination goes into overdrive ;-)
Richard,Is there a protective shutter that closes over the lens when power is off? or a lens cap? I don't see any in the pics and am just wondering..
Marcel Mutter: WOW that are lot of advertisements between this comments area and the news item.
Amazon must be turning the screws..
Cheezr: How are you converting the RAW files? Or should I only be looking at the JPEG's?
I guess i am just surprised by the poor quality of the raw files compared to other aps-c cameras. Thus, my questions meant, are these final raw quality or is it a beta convertor or are the raw files just that lousy?
