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

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?

Do you still have to pay an exorbitant fee for a filter holder?
Well dpreview are any of the real annoying issues with the v1 fixed?can you cancel the post capture preview? can you set shutter speed for auto iso?can you modify the program line or you still stuck with blurry subjects?are you still scrolling endlessly down the shooting menu ?
have you already forgotten your review of the V1?
in the phootsteps of the phablet, i suggest we call them phameras!
looking good, although personally i would prefer a "like" button rather than a vote up or down button. a vote up/down button will encourage mobs, IMO.
What struck me is that they are planning to sell these thru "carriers". I really dont see myself going to ATT to buy a camera. Are they planning to put 4G data capability in this? Why would ATT sell it if they cant slap it with a 2 yr contract?
In many ways Samsung makes great products and in many ways they appear clueless! Hmmm, good paradox!
the only thing that frightens me is the as yet unannounced price.Galaxy SIII + compact is not going to be under $700, SIGH
How sad, the gaming division gets it but the imaging division really does not. No wonder that Samsung is eating Sony's lunch and dinner in most product areas.
Thank you DxO, I for one, am grateful as I did not expect RX100 support and it is quite good!
sjgcit: DPR - smartphones do allow extra memory to be added. No idea why you think otherwise.
Consumer wants : Phone with good camera.
Consumer gets : average camera with ... whoops.
It's still asking the consumer to carry two devices when they want one.
Consumers don't care if it can run Android, let alone which version of Android. It could run DOS if it did what they wanted.
Can't tell if this thing has an audio-out socket. If it doesn't it would be a HUGE fail, as that would mean no MP3 playing.
In case Nikon et al haven't noticed all Apple or Nokia or the rest of them have to do to make a better product is add a zoom lens in a phone. All Nikon et all have to do is build a phone, get it certified and make deals with carriers, which is a lot harder.
i see the compromises as too little app memory (unless you can also use the SD card but prob not without hacking) and likely low res lcd. will wait and see for the full review.
Reg Natarajan: I love the idea. When I saw the headline, I mentally thought, "Sold!" Then I read a bit more. Android 2.3? Are they serious? Someone tell Nikon that Android 2.3 was released in 2010, and they're on 4.1 now.
the primary diff btwn 2.3 and 4 is the support for tablets (i.e. fragments) and screens of differing pixel density.I personally think 2.3 was a good choice for this kind of device and it is appropriate for a $350 device.Don't get me wrong, a more expensive and more capable device is surely coming if not from Nikon from Samsung and/or the others.so i am sure you will get JB eventually.
