Hugo808: Welcome to the same camera as last year!
At least it's got an OLPF though, and a flippy screen that might come in useful.
But all in all it looks to me like the camera the D610 should have been but without a decent RAW buffer depth. Maybe that'll come in next years D760....
Scratch that, that buffer info is wrong.
Frank C.: 1/200 x-sync1/4000sNo focus-peekingAA filterNo AF-ON buttonExpensive grip with no fps boost
hmm tough call.... wish it was a pro DX instead that maxed out all specs instead as it would pose no threat to Nikon's current FX lineup plus fill up a gaping hole on the DX side, 1/200s x-sync is sooooo 1990ish
No try a list of the positives-its longer.
HomoSapiensWannaBe: $485 for yet another battery grip model -- which uses the same EN-EL15 battery as the D600/610. I doubt there was any need other than greed to change the battery grip from the D600/610. Oh well, in a few months we'll have one or more compatible 3rd party grips for $80 or less.
Someone on the forum said they ordered one for 385, that B&H pricematched Adorama i think.
Buffer size: 47 RAW lossless compressed 12-bit, 28, lossless compressed 14-bit. Look at page 489 of the manual for the full table.
brendon1000: As a Sony user I am happy more and more manufacturers are getting on the Vari angle LCD bandwagon. Those who don't need it can keep it in the default position and those (like me!) who love using such a feature is free to use it to our hearts content.
Nikon needs something like the dual AF pixel tech from Canon to take full advantage of the vari angle LCD though IMO.
A few posts below someone mentioned the RAW buffer as 12. Don't know if that is true but I seriously hope not given the D610 has a much larger buffer.
I think my D600 does 13-15 shots in 14 bit raw with jpg fine. It will do jpg only forever. I think this is pretty good.
The Photo Ninja: I already have this camera - it's called a 5D Mark III
How much are they again?
mpgxsvcd: Look! An Enthusiast camera with a Professional Price.
C'mon, you can rip on Nikon better than that, try harder.
RStyga: Does it come with free oil replacement in the first 2000 shots?
In all fairness to Nikon, they never referred to the D750 as an action camera, or anything. The rumor sites did.
VadymA: Looks like Nikon let go their entire R&D department; all their new models look like rearrangement of the same parts; no innovation, no new ideas, nothing ;(
Yup, nothing but great IQ, AF, speed and build. What in the world were they thinking?
cs hauser: "24MP may well be perfectly adequate - Canon certainly thinks so, having yet to exceed the 21MP mark in any of its DSLRs."
Technically, that statement in the review is incorrect. Canon already exceeded the 21MP mark with the EOS 5D Mark III, which has 22 megapixels.
I've been looking through the specs sheets, and I can't seem to find the RAW buffer for the D750. That's a very important piece of information for what is purportedly a "sports" camera.
In all fairness, It wasn't Nikon that dubbed this an action camera, it was NR.
JDThomas: This is pretty much what the D610 should have been in the first place. It's got a lot of great specs and will be a great camera for a lot of people.
However, this is not a D700 replacement. I think Nikon is trying to bury the D600 stigma by using a name that people equate with one of the best cameras Nikon ever produced.
It's relatively cheap at only $2300, but I would have paid $3000 for these guts in a D810 body.
Actually, it appears to me to be the best mid range FF camera.
DPR does point out its magnesium build instead of plastic.
Biro: No touchscreen, no native wifi, big K-mount lens with noisy autofocus. The problem with the K-S1 is that it's not going to appeal to its intended market: mobile-interface shooters. There've been only two devices that have resonated with this market in the past decade: the iPhone and the GoPro camera. Pentax and the rest of the traditional camera industry still don't have a clue about how to reach these people and I have to wonder what Pentax's next crack at mirrorless will look like. I just have to shake my head.
I think the KS-1 matches well with the 5300, and I like the red one.
drummercam: Comparing the Pentax K-S1 to the Pentax K-50 is definitely a good way to avoid having to compare it to Canon's 2014 entry-level DSLR, the EOS 1200D (Rebel T5). I don't think the pentamirror, mono-microphone, 3fps, 0.8mag viewfinder, 460K-dot LCD EOS 1200D compares favorably at all, and the price difference is buying solid features, including build, no doubt.
And since "looks" get most of the troll action here, that black blob of a Canon lacks all distinction. Also obvious just by looking -- since looking is all that the complainers about the K-S1 have done as of yet -- is that if Pentax intended to present a less intimidating user interface, comparing K-S1 to the EOS 1200D wins the point easily.
DPR also again shows some anti-Pentax bias by listing (according to the "side-by-side" feature) the EOS as a "Compact SLR" and the Pentax as a "Mid-size SLR." The Canon is apparently 130 x 100 x 78mm, while the Pentax is 121 x 93 x 70mm. I guess compact is bigger than mid-size now?
This comptetes on price with the D5300 from Nikon.
This is the same price as the D5300, and i would take that everyday over this bling studded camera. And just for you, colors too. Seriously, that grip just looks wrong. Sorry, 750 is just to much.
Jonathan Wilson: Can't people just get past the LEDs - you can turn them off if you don't like them! I can actually see a case for them sometimes when shooting children (or when you want to distract the subject).Yes I realise this is largely a Canon / Nikon site. People were still moaning left, right and centre even when the K-3 was announced. And most of the people moaning have never even tried a Pentax camera. BTW I used to own Canon and I have tried Nikon cameras too.
Uhh, are not the pretty lights covered by your hand when shooting?
Photoman: I have one question...why?
Deep financial crisis compared to what? "The company announced net income of 46.8 billion yen for last fiscal year, missing its own forecast of 50 billion yen." 47 billion yen is about $450,000,000 in US dollars. Again, thats income after all the dust has settled. Thats pretty bad, for Nikon. But they have lots of money in the bank, a great divisified product line, and exciting new offerings. They are in pretty good shape considering the horrendous camera market.
And I have seen no numbers indication ricoh is making any money on the Pentax line. I saw a statement from 2012 from Miura stating a 20 million dollar loss.
I wish they were profitable, they make great cameras. Hell, I wish ALL camera makers were profitable. Thats good for EVERYBODY.
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.
