Rob: The willful exclusion of video is just ridiculous in this day and age, and feels unnecessarily anachronistic. How about letting the user decide if he wants to use the video feature, instead of not having it when needing it?
There's a strange group of anti-video photographers who are applauding this. Nikon is pandering to these people.
Nikon's numbers are down and they stated that they were going to concentrate on high profit margin cameras. Why is anyone surprised?
spidermoon: Remember the fith of November, when Nikon emerges from the shadow and put fire on DSLR market. Kinda a revolution.
A restyled DSLR with stripped out features (video) and different manual controls is hardly revolutionary.
Radilo Breitlack: I' rather have a digital insert in place of the classic film holder & bobbin to replace the 35 mm film cartridges in my old 35mm SLR;
Makes more sense just to scan your film.
I'll hold off until I see a DXOMark evaluation. :)
peevee1: Only 6.5 fps with C-AF. EPIC FAIL (at this price, 7 fps 70D is $1200).
They needed 9-10 fps with C-AF+Tracking to have the price they want. As it is, it is a $1000 camera, not $1400.
Only an "epic fail" if burst rate is the only reason you choose a camera.
Asylum Photo: Tell that to Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and Fuji. The mirrorless market is fine, as long as you produce a high quality camera.
No it's not. Camera sales are down world wide.
Stephen_C: The problem with the 1 system is that there are better, cheaper, smaller cameras like the micro 4/3 cameras and the NEXs. A 1" sensor can be very good, like in the Sony RX100, but the 1 system cameras are not pocketable.
NEX may have smaller bodies, but the lenses make it fairly large. M 4/3 probably has the best balance of size to quality.
None of the CSC's are truly pocketable when you have a zoom lens attached.
Camera sales are down world-wide this year. Sony, Panasonic and Olympus are all struggling. No one has truly figured this market out yet especially with camera phones satisfying most consumers needs.
TN Args: I don't understand why the 1 series lenses are as big (and expensive) as they are. It puts me off more than the sensor size.
I'll give you expensive but big? How much smaller can they be??
Aris25: No metering in video mode!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least give us that!!!!! This is rediculous!!!! We cannot change aperture in video mode, we can't see if the exposure is right cause we dont have metering in video mode, we can't use flatter picture profiles because of banding and fpn .... But we have headphone jack with live meters for audio, and mic input for clean audio recording!!!! Does anyone in Nikon Tests the versatility in video mode before they put it in production... The D7100 its an amazing stills camera but for video... i dont think so... The picture quality overall isn't that bad if you have the time to denoise the footage(sometimes and in the lowest iso)... and if you have the time to exit from live view to change the aperture ... and then to check how is your exposure ... and then come back to live view ("ohhh the white t-shirt is overexposed") Then you have to exit from live view.........Nikon Rulessssss
The inability to change the aperture in live view is baffling. I'm not even talking about during recording but simply changing it in between recordings.
How does "buying a GH3" solve anything? Cameras are all about lenses as well as bodies.
I think the new cards act as WiFi access points whereas the older and Pro cards are WiFi clients. One thing that the older card is lacking is simply the ability to browse it remotely which I believe cards like the Toshiba FlashAir can do. Not sure if the new EyeFi cards can do this.
thinkfat: If only it worked at all. Neither Firefox or Chrome are able to run the site. Chrome breaks the Albums view and Slideshows, Firefox breaks LightTable :-( It used to be old, now it's kaputt.
Chrome works on both OS X and WIndows 7 for me.
Bill Rees: I realize that bashing the Nikon 1 system is the thing to do but I like mine. I got the V1 on closeout last year along with the FT-1 and a few of the inexpensive lenses. The price on this lens makes no sense. I even feel the wide angle zoom is overpriced.
BTW, I have a D700 and D7100 with lots of lenses. I should know better than to post on this poseur site. Get out and shoot. Jerks.

Picturenaut: I have the feeling that Adobe turns out to be the Microsoft of imaging business, they may be on the way to lose contact to the majority of their customers. Adobe should take the Windows 8 disaster as a writing on the wall.
Cloud computing has its pros and cons, I expect most software providers to move to CC. For us in Germany, as an example, this could be a disaster, since our grid is vintage and our telecommunication companies don't invest. At the latest if many people here start to edit their videos using cloud, the whole net will break down... I am not sure which countries in the world are in the same situation but this may cut sales potential for Adobe seriously. And will China allow free CC traffic with Adobe's servers? Including "critical" image material? Wouldn't bet on it.
I use Photoshop CS6, LR 4, and other Adobe stuff, and I will definitely will make up my mind about leaving Adobe's ship on the long run. Clever rats always find other good ships ;-)
Did you read the article? Judging by your two posts I think you still believe this software runs in a browser. It is the same computer-based software that updates more frequently and validates the license via an internet connection.
No images are uploaed to Adobe.
I'd love to see links from the critics of their own film work. This is brilliant.
Bill Rees: Glad I didn't wait for this lens and just got the Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 which I love. The price is too high for what amounts to a slow, consumer wide-angle zoom.
True but my point is it's over-priced.

CameraLabTester: "photography related"?
Isn't Photoshop mostly about photography and then some?
Ken Rockwell is also plans on shooting small jpeg on his Nikon D800.
