papa natas: A camera that NEVER went to the moon as well as the crew.

Ahh, a flat worlder. You already entered the subject. And any fool or grifter can publish a book. It always amuses me the easiest to prove is the one the conspriacy nuts go after.

munro harrap: In the Uk they cost £1700, that's £550 more than the D610 which has the same resolution, but lacks Face recognition AF due to the low-pixel count sensor. The price difference is considerable. Is the image quality better? I have really no idea at all.

Whether this new machine is better in UK averaged lighting conditions over a year, remains to be seen

"When you put together all of them it becomes obvious we are being taken for a ride yet again, since the noise which at 800 and above is BAD on a D600/D610, is a sure way of getting you to buy a D750."

Really? The D600 is bad above ISO 800? I better sell mine.

ThomasSwitzerland: Ken Rockwell has just published snapshots on the D750 with the 20mm f/1.8.

http://kenrockwell.com/tech/00-new-today.htm

To me this represents outstanding journalistic quality in time and precision. Why cannot the so much larger <dpreview> deliver?

Thomas, you think those snapshots with the circus colors (Ken always shoots in vivid mode), are better and more timely than the DPR ones?
Ken is quicker a lot of the time, mostly because he can review cameras without having one.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1667 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ron A 19: So much anti-Canon sentiment here! And yet, Canon offers the most complete lineup of any camera and lens maker out there and is the only company that makes a real profit in this business. If you want expensive "enthusiast" gear, there are many options that are compatible with Canon cameras. If you're a pro who makes money from photography, Canon is an excellent company. People on photo gear forums act as if images taken before 2014 are subpar in image quality. Rest assured, the new dual processor fast focusing 7DII can crush almost any other camera for sports. Nobody needs a gigapan image taken at iso 402k or a 1 kg 35mm lens.

And you are a rude one day wonder troll.

LOL, quite a dossier of junk for one day. Let me guess, you've been banned before.

Nikon Makes a very real profit. Every year.

Isn't this a USA only announcement? I doubt it's very earth shattering then or it would be world-wide.

In reply to:

tom1234567: images are Nothing special
Samsung NX1 will be a better camera in my opinion,
with 4kvideo plus many more enhancements
Canon needs to get there act together

So can you show me where the sample pictures from the NX1 are, I would love to compare them.

Pixel peeped a couple of the hi iso, thought meh, but then did the slide show, and thought they looked great. At print size these are pretty good, are they the best, I don't know, but I liked them.

Nice job on the pictures, the area and the model did justice to the cam, I stopped critiquing them, and just enjoyed them.

sandy b: Thats one well specc'ed camera. It may have been worth the wait.

So Nikon, next?

You do realize that this camera will probably outsell all of those cameras, combined?

olypan: Another day, another Canon top of the front page ad-rticle.

short term? Nikons been profitable for 40-50 years? They are a conservativly managed company with a lot of money in the bank and still making good profits in the midst of the worst camera downturn in decades. There is nothing remotely similar betwen Nikon and Kodak. Sony, Panasonic and Ricoh would be out of the market much sooner than Nikon.

And Abrasive guy, its ok for Sony and Canon to run the ads? But not Nikon?
