Photoman: I have one question...why?
Really, thats a new one, not making money is a good thing. Sooner or later Ricoh will spin them off if they don't start making money. They may be patient, but it won't be unlimited. And the K3 while an exceptional camera, certainly is not better at everything compared to the D7100.
"Pentax is dong much better by being selective in what they offer" Like runway lighting. It would behoove pentax to emulate Nikon a bit more, its good to actually make a profit on your products once in awhile. Nikons worst selling dslrs outsell anything Pentax makes.
Ozyxy: I like the Sv and TAv modes, why can't Canon, Nikon and Sony have these modes as well?K-S1 is so flashy it will be difficult to use it for street photography where we take pictures of people without their consent... at night they'll see the LEDs. However, I find it difficult to use a DSLR at night as I can't see the buttons, so these LEDs might help...
Nikon ISO can be set without digging into menus. And Nikon puts 100% veiwfinders in many of the camers, just not the ones with runway lights.
steelhead3: I can't believe they sullied that rig with that old Nikon lens.
Agree Einstein, my reply to Steely was a bit tounge in cheek for his comment abut beautifying the camera with a Nikon lens, but it really is strongpoint that Sony has made its cameras easily compatable with other lens.
They wouldn't have to if Sony made lens's.
Wubslin: Well this is just awful.
I've assured, *repeatedly*, by everyone on this site that Nikon never has any issues.
So I'm sure it must be some kind of misunderstanding, and all those images published on the internet showing sensor defects are just Photoshops.
No one, as far as I can ascertain, is claiming Nikon never has issues. Nor that this is an issue. The question is how minor an issue it is. I suggest you take up some remedial reading courses.
Jostian: yet another QC issue for Nikon...D7000, D600 and now the D810, geez, what gives Nikon?
"Hopefully, they are swirling down the porcelain throne, an appropriate place for that 'crappy' corporation."
And yet you scream bloody murder for an issue that would never even affect you or obvoiusly most of us.
No, its doesn't surprise me either, the surprise is if its such a big issue, how come you didnt even know about it and you own the camera?
Nothing new, except Nikons new policy to react proactivly when an issue comes up. Your D800 as well as many other cameras would exhbit the same dots. I would suggest the Mansurovs test their older cameras too.
Pssst, framer, your D800 has it too..
Just a Photographer: OMG - So we can expect the Nikon D820 within 6 month from now?
Nikon has a SERIOUS problem and it has to do with Quality Control!
Seems like they are trying to commit harakiri.... This is really going to hurt Nikon's trust and reputation.
Sorry Marc, those comments were aimed specifically at the OP, not you. Why would you think I was replying to you and NOT the OP? Hari kari, D820, really, for an almost insignificant issue that the quick fix is already in the camera, and a proactive response from Nikon. And i stand by the term idiot in response to his totally over hyped post.
crashpc: This is really sad and pathetic. I don´t even wish any problems to Nikon as competition. It is good competition, I am still looking for what they do as potential customer, but this is obviously not good way.
Maybe someday Canon can, too.
Idiot post. The camera show bright spots, only at long exposures, and even then enabling long exposure noise reduction fixes it. And Nikon instantly announces a fix. The haters love to hate.
Jogger: DPR comments are the same level as YouTube...
Serious fault? Really? Some cameras show some bright spots at long exposure in crop mode and setting long exposure noise reduction fixes it and you think its serious? i think you enjoy piling on.
mpgxsvcd: I find it interesting that everyone keeps saying “Look at the Market Share Nikon has” instead of “Look at the profits Nikon is not making”. Having a big market share is a good thing only if that market has growth potential and is already profitable. Having more of a non-profitable market is actually a bad thing.
Nikon is one of the two camera companies making a profit.
mpgxsvcd: Sony and Micro Four Thirds may not have caught up to Canon and Nikon yet. However, Canon and Nikon are not progressing at all in this class of camera while Sony and M4/3s are picking up steam steadily.
Nikon and Canon are wisely siting on the sidelines waiting for the shakeout. The market is shrinking, no one is making money selling these things, and the shakeout will soon take a couple or so of these vendors out of the picture.
dgeugene1: I have great respect for Wikipedia but they are wrong on this one.
They may be legally right, but they are still wrong. They took something from somebody else on a technicality. Guys camera, guys memory stick, his picture.
brycesteiner: Why is there an argument here?
People, just because you own equipment does not make you the copyright holder. There is nothing else period. This would not even make it to trial. If there is a question about the image or subject, the first question would be, "Did you take the picture." That's the only way to even have a claim or partial claim.
