I like this shot ! Beautiful scenery , noce color signs .... brilliant stuff !
wow , this place is gorgeous , nice shot ..
el desierto es hermoso
vodanh1982: The question is "Does the Canon CEO use a camera?"
I bet he uses the uber Powershot S110 ! (LOL)
very nice shot , well done !
This place looks amazing., Nice shot !
GabrielZ: My favorite types of photography are landscape and macro. So the increased DOF of the smaller sensor, combined with compact size, low weight, ability to change lenses and relatively affordable price, would suit me quite well. But I want to wait for a full review to see how image quality measures up. And hope that down the line Nikon releases a real macro lens for this system.
Im also surprised that Nikon hasnt added a macro lens yet for its 1 system cameras ,
OneGuy: So what can 15 pps (pics per sec) camera do that 5 pps cam cannot? That is the question.
@RolandThats exactly what I was thinking !
Igor Fradlis: Looks like good old Nikon F4
Yeah , you got it spot on ....the resemblance is quite uncanny !
MPA1: Is that a sensor or a postage stamp in there?!
LOL ! That cracked me up badly...
Donnie G: When I look at this camera I see some Nikon styling cues that remind me of their film era F2 and F4 cameras, but mostly I see a Sony NEX with a 1" sensor and Nikon innards. Maybe I'm wrong, but that sure looks like the new Sony accessary shoe sitting atop the V2's EVF housing. Given the cosy relationship between Sony and Nikon, isn't it possible that they have started to share more than chips during product design and development?
Yeah , but having too many partners sounds promiscuous and can lead to trouble ....
nikvis: Oh G! It's too ugly....
GabrielZ: This is what the V1 should have been. From initial impressions here, I really quite like this little brick.
Yeah, this camera really looks promising...and the nice hand grip is a very welcome addition !
Oh wow ! This camera looks gorgeous , it reminds me of the superzooms of 10 years ago ! I loved it based on its looks alone....
Its amazing that this camera has only one SD card slot ! The really worrying thing is the future of the Compact flash slot/cards...........Sony`s top end camera no longer have CF slots and now the D600 & 6D dont have CF card slots....the number of new cameras using CF is dwindling at an alarming rate............meanwhile SD cards are really taking over with a vengeance
Danie Bester: Rather disappointed with this camera. It has lower specs than the 7D in almost all aspects. Apart from the gimmicks, the GPS and WiFi I can see no reason why any pro user will buy this. Even as a backup camera, the 7D will be better. What makes me more unhappy, is the fact that they have one cross type focus point in the center and a mere 11 points. Not enough! Then taking away the joystick was another huge mistake and I cannot see portrait users loving this one. No HDR and Multi-Exposure RAW's? I cannot see Landscape Photogs will love this one too. 1/4000th sec max shutter speed is also ridiculous. Shame on you Canon! You skimped your users, and some of them will walk over. The Nikon D600 beats this product bloody in almost all aspects. Canon you loose yet another one. Congratulations Nikon! Sigh...
You hit the nail on the head regarding that no pros will be attracted to this camera and I think thats exactly what Canon wanted! The real shocker was a single SD card slot!
redhed17: Interesting the haven't put an XQD slot on it. Looks like it could be a dead format already if the people who make the cards are not embracing it in their top of the range models. :-/
Maybe they skipped the XQD card because they were cramped for space on the camera body hence the choice of SD & MS pro duo cards.........besides its still early days for the XQD cards, remember how SD cards took almost 5 years for them to become dominant in cameras...............
Its quite amazing that this is the first high end camera to "dump" the Compact Flash memory card slot and format.....
is it me or does that camera look very anorexic ?Maybe I should start a campaign saying "no to size 0 cameras" ! LOL !!!.....
Ahmet Aydogan: The physical pin configuration coupled with the sheer size of CF cards are both major issues that are negatives in my book. I'm not sure if XQD's have taken care of the contact pin issue, but do we really yet another card format (remembers SM, XD, MS, etc.)? The speed is a plus, but like Pelasdf, I feel that SD cards are the way to go if they can be speeded up.
@GraevtureSD cards are not as problematic in some embedded systems because they can use the SPI bus which is supported in most embedded systems and they do have have the advantage of smaller size and low power consumption hence in some embedded systems were space and power consumption are crucial SD cards are still the preferred choice
makeitworst: Where the hell are the XD Cards!!??? I have Olympus cameras, GREAT Cameras, that are now media card Orphans because these jerk Flash Card makers adopt and DUMP formats at their whims! The largest XD cards that were ever made were 2GB! And those are nearly impossible to find! Even CF cards are becoming too expensive and hard to find (for older DSLRs like the early Nikon's before the switch to SD)!! There was nothing wrong with CF, considering the size they could have made 128 or 256GB cards by now!
This is BS!
@makeitworstLexar recently announced 128Gb CF cards, as for XD cards well its not too big a deal that they top out at 2Gb because the only cameras that use those cards are very old models discontinued years ago so chances are they have low resolution and a 2GB XD card will hold a lot of pictures, there are some XD cards still around if you look them up....
