Retzius: Nikon management decides not to produce D400 because it might not appeal to enough photographers
Nikon management decides to produce niche astrophotography camera...
Sounds good Retzius, excpet your wrong. See the post by rrccad. Mirrorless will take off when Canon and Nikon get serious about it, and you can be pretty sure they are.
watson076: I only have one comment: These samples are a great way to help Olympus and Fuji sell more cameras :)
And they could use all the help they can get.
AEY: Ha Ha Canon Rebel T6s/T6i deserve DP supergold star! Why so many post with this model.
Read much Phillips? I guess not if you think the Nikon gets gold every time. BTW, the highest level of gold lately is Sony.
Paul Petersen: Just marketing BS if a DSLR shooter wants to travel lighter just add one of the latest affordable Nikons or Canons, way lighter than what they show in the mocumentury. There are plenty of lighter lenses to uses and you still can use all their good big stuff.
When I get old and can't carry my 750, I meight get a Oly. But probably a Fuji.
TheEngineer: I love how all the m43 haters get all riled up because of this.
It seems Olympus is doing something right.
Go go Olympus....
except selling cameras.
vesa1tahti: The D7200 is the best APS-C- camera in the whole universe. With respect to IQ. Switched from D7000 to D7200.
It is a very sturdy dense camera, magnesium and carbon fiber build, and fully weather sealed. is its all metal like the previous generation? No. But is smaller, lighter, better AF and better IQ. It does not have the buffer capacity, but its not bad, just not as good. For its price it is a marvelous camera that for IQ and AF can stand toe to toe with any camera.
Doc _ F: Has anyone else had problems with the rear screen? Used on a surf beach with mist. Camera did not get wet. After a couple of hours flip up screen went intermittent, then stopped working for 3 days. It then spontaneously recovered and now seems fine. The camera continued to work during this time. Nikon Europe's response was'"I am sorry to learn about the problem you have experienced. I would like to confirm that the D750 camera is weather-sealed to certain extent, however depending on the actual conditions some moisture ingress may occur. If the mist was slightly salty, it may have affected the camera's circuitry and due to presence of seals it evaporated with delay"
I was under the impression the D750 was "Tough and durable: protected by a tough, weather-sealed body, the D750 is ready to take on any environment"?
John, Oly's warranty clearly states they will not cover water damage.
Lol Carlos, it does.
Glen Barrington: I see it has a built in grip similar to that of the E-M10. Prospective users might want to consider they might need an optional external grip when using larger lenses. It seems a bit larger then the E-M10, so that might help a bit with balance.
In the Studio Comparison, compared it to my E-M10, since that is what I have, as well as the A6000 and the D5500, at a variety of ISO settings. In every location in the image and at all settings, I preferred the A6000 and the E-M10 versions to the X-T10, though the differences between the Fuji and the Oly were minimal. I suspect features would drive the decision between the Fuji and Oly rather than IQ.
However I preferred the XT10 to the D5500 most of the time. I was surprised at how little I liked the D5500 image overall. I thought I would like it best at least some of the time, and the E-m10 least some of the time, but that wasn't the case.
From what I've seen, so far, this seems to be a quality camera at an affordable price.
Glenn, What do you prefer? Its hard to check with no raw support, but the XT10 did not look as sharp or as clean under both lowlight and regular. The sony was the sharpest by a good margin. The XT10 looked ok, but I saw nothing noteworthy.
iudex: s there any reason for limiting ISO 100 to JPEG only? I can imagine that ISO200 as the lowest sensitivity in RAW mode is too high for a shot with large aperture, e.g. f1,4, making outdoor portraits impossible (or needing an ND filter).
Some ancedotale reading fuji vs ISO:
M Jesper: What would be interesting to see is how it handles a teleconverter.
Ken Aisin: Thanks for the sample pics!! For the price it should come with a tripod collar though....
Its considerably lighter than a 24-70. I really don't think most people would use with a foot.
Beautiful. On my short list. Nice job guys.
Deardorff: Still can't match Nikon for Dynamic Range. What are you Canon engineers doing? As for "more DR is useful for people who can't expose their shots correctly in the first place" - those who can do so benefit from the files in many ways. Shooting one off productions/sports/wildlife and having the extra leeway in the shadows is more than welcome. Even more so in rapidly changing light conditions - like a player running in and out of shadow areas.
"Poor dynamic range" is a bit of a reach. Not as good does not equate poor. The 50 mp is a strength unique to Canon in a dslr.
Perhaps Sony has the off sensor ADL technology locked up with patents that is difficult to get around.
Still, no where in that article did DPR use the word poor concerning that sensor, and I doubt they ever would.
Beautiful shot. While it may not push the envelope on DR, 3 stops of latitude with 50 mp will make some very impressive shots, like the one posted. Careful exposure will mitigate most issues with the DR. I think users with this camera are going to have a great time shooting.
phoenix15: Why I think Nikon will NOT release D400:1. They use Sony sensor, and it is better than Canon 7DII's. What need to worry if the sensor is far superior ? And remember D7200 is 700 USD cheaper.2. Tough competition in pro DX body, while the market is declining. Pentax K-3II is only 1000 USD, with rugged body, 8.3 FPS, GPS, astrotracer, and the sensor is also same class with D7200. Will they charge 1700 USD for body only, and expecting it to be a best seller ? I doubt it.3. State of art AF system in D7200 is one of the best, in class with Nikon D750 and D810. This is just telling us, D7200 is what Nikonian expect to see in the D400. 4. Fullframe camera is getting cheaper, and there is much pressure now from the mirrorless system. Introducing D400 with cropped sensor is wasting time and resources, must be better to compete Sony with their A7 series.
Actually I remember it back then as Nikon wouldn't make a FF camera until they could make a decent one. There were no other FF sensors available then of course. I have never seen a quote saying they wouldn't make one. We now know know Nikon was designing a FF sensor (D3) at that point.
Very nice, better than I expected, the Canon camp will be very happy with this sensor.
Note, at high Iso with the lowlight level button enable, I still prefer my D750
ozturert: Let's see how Canon will tackle this issue. If they act fast and fix this free of charge ASAP, then they'll show their difference from Nikon. If not.. well...
recall and fix within for months? Not quite:
"Issues about Mark III cameras were reported throughout the online photographer communities after the camera's retail launch. These relate to SERVO AF mode, to stripes within the picture, cursor navigation failure, Err 99 messages and sub par low light focus acquisition performance compared to previous models. Canon investigated a few of these issues, and some are believed to be resolved in firmware release 1.1.1, which was released in September 2007.On March 3, 2009, Canon announced new firmware and a free AF recalibration for the 1D Mark III. Initial reports from owners who have received their camera back from the AF recalibration seem to be largely positive, although there are still some mixed results."
Weasel: Hi, I bought my D7200 few days ago. I am pretty impressed as I am coming from a D200. I skipped the D300 and waited and waited for the D400. I also thought about going FX with the D750 - but this would have been a little bit above my budget as I had to buy new FX lenses too. But yes, I am a little bit confused with the controls and I still have to get used to the new camera as the D200 was a little bit more professional than the D7200 regarding the operation. I haven't got the time to do a lot of testing but the new AF and the ISO performance is great.And yes, the missing AF-ON button is a little drawback (D750 doesn't have it too) - I still don't know if I am going to miss it as I used it on my D200 only from time to time. I am pretty sure there will be a replacement for the D300s in the future - but I was tired of waiting.
And we are happy you're over there now.The K3 image wise and AF wise is not as good as the D7100. Some people would cut off their nose to spite their face.
"Some 1DMarkIIIs had AF issues in certain conditions" pretty much totally killed its sales and resale value. Canon denied it for over 6 months till Galbrath held their feet to the fire.
There was NO widespread D7000 oil issue.
Canon mirrors falling of and light leaks. Fuji orbs. Plenty of blame to go around.
