Finally, they look to have gotten the right camera at the right price. Now if the sensor is the Sony, it maybe will live up to the hype.
Vegetable Police: I actually like the camera. I kind of wish it was a fixed lens compact though like the rx100 or g7x. Those kit lenses aren't looking so fun.
I just picked up a coolpix A for about $300. Terrific little camera.
mosc: I still think the main issue with the 1 system is the lenses. They're all too slow and too expensive. If they were cheaper and faster the entire system would look different. They should offer f1.4 to f2.0 pancake primes for <$300 at 8mm, 10mm, 13mm, and 19mm. That 10-100 zoom aught to be f4.0 and cost ~$500. Adding a few ounces of glass and cutting some profit margin would make these things fly off the shelf.
ogl: Such system with 1" sensors needs faster lenses. 3.5-5.6 is no good at all.
There are fast lens.
captura: Maybe the X100S and T should compared to their APS-C rivals, the Ricoh GR and the Nikon Coolpix 'A.'
Richard, pull up the D7000 (same sensor) and compare it to the Fuji in the review. In jpg, the Fuji appears a bit cleaner and sharper. Apply the same NR and sharpening to the Nikon A and they would be very close, this can be seen comparing the raw files where the Nikon pulls ahead in noise and sharpness . Now feature wise, the Fuji is way ahead, some would also like 35 over 28. But for the $329 price that you can get the A for today, its a sweet camera. Superb lens and sensor, not bad battery, full manual capability and 4 fps in an actually pocketable camera. And solid magnesium build. Shame Nikon did not price it competitively at introduction. It is still one of the best actual pocket cameras you can buy.
MidnightRider: Installed and tested March 18. Uninstalled and went back to View NX2 March 19. NX2 has more editing options and is easier to use. Thanks, Nikon for the free availability of NXi however NX2 serves my purposes much more efficiently.
Must be machines. On mine it is virtually instant.
monographix: The sensor is again Toshiba, and as rumored the exact 7100 one
It may be a Toshiba, that does not mean its the same. Time marches on.
Pretty sure its not the "Same".
NXI has no editing functions. It's a (very fast) browser. Open images, do your sort thing, hit edit, launches NXd or any other registered editor.Much faster than NX2.
HowaboutRAW: Windows 7 64:
Forces restart before install, then installs correctly after forced restart of computer.
Hangs up a bit unless you force it to look for the Pictures Folder in the Windows Libraries Folder.
For example: Right clicking an NEF (Nikon raw) file and telling Windows to open that raw with ViewNXi causes ViewNXi to stumble, never completing the operation.
But forcing ViewNXi to see the Pictures Folder and NEF files makes ViewNXi work correctly as a viewer.
As others have noted, no real image adjustments, but cntrl E allows processing to jpeg or tiff, so still like ViewNX2 in that regard.
Reverted out of ViewNXi, since it doesn't seem to offer any great advantage over ViewNX2, which is uninstalled with the install of ViewNXi.
Use it in conjunction with NX-D. Open NX-I, do your view sort thing, click edit, launches NX-D very quickly. Of course, you can launch any registered editor.NX-I is VERY fast,opens thumbnails almost instantly, even a folder with more than 100. This won't replace my adobe setup, but a casual user would find NX-I and NX-D very usable.
Gosman: Still not the D400. Still not like the Pentax K-3 that has been out a year and a half!
rugosa: It's free and works well. As usual mostly bitching in the comments section!
So in other words Stephen, your guessing.
It does work well, and its free. It's not photoshop, but then it does not have to be.The reason thet Nikon dumped Capture was the company that owned it decided not to support/distribute it any more. Nikon was not given an option. The new software is made by silky-Pix I believe. It certainly seems at least on par with any of the other freeware that camera makers distribute. I still wouldnt dump photoshop/lightroom for it, but I wouldn't do that for capture either.
Runs fine on a win7, I7-2600, 16gb, 500gb ssd. Seems pretty fast. Seems to work ok with NX-D.
Wont replace my current tool setup of PS and lightroom, but for someone that has a fast machine and does not want to spend lots of money it would be adequate.
Wags48: Lots of discussion regarding the D7200 v D7100. But is it a worthwhile upgrade from the D7000?
Yes, in every way. Just read the specs.
K3 has a plastic interior frame just like the D7200.
ZAnton: Does this mean I will never ever read whining about D400 again?I am afraid it doesn't...
A tip to Nikon - make an additional service for changing the badge d7200 to d400 for $200.
So tell me again how many years it took Canon to update its camera?
jennyrae: Nikon is competing with Canon on "how far can you strip a camera" game.
Still has IQ and AF as good or better than any. But, hey, its a camera, what does that matter.
amd111: When can we expect full DPR review of D7200?
DPR reviewed 6 Sony cameras last year, more than any other. Nice try though.
