On Nikon D810 Preview preview (844 comments in total)
In reply to:

Arsen: The improvements are small but all in the right place for me. The better LCD, Better ISO, Faster Frame Rate, better Focus.. These little changes makes an awesome camera even better. I will be upgrading from the D800E to the D810..

Just one very important question, I see that they will be releasing their Stupid Nikon Capture NX-D on July 15th for free. Does this mean that there will not be Capture NX2 Support for the D810? Can anyone confirm this? If so this will be a deal breaker for me.

I'm not Nikon - so not official - but it's very likely that there will be no NX2 support for D810.
Release date NX-D / support end NX 2 : July 15th
D810 available / in store: July 17th

Vizio Virtù: Wake up, folks. They try to sell you this mirrorless / EVF rubbish as innovation for your weightsaving comfort but actually it's only for their cost reducing purposes. Cutting off the OVF is cutting off photographers creativity.

It's simple. Because a sensor "sees" different than the human eye. EVF always will show you it's very special scene interpretation and not the scence itself. This will distort photographers true impression and put them out the scene instead of being part of it.

HighISO is disappointing. At least 2 stops worst than 7 years old Nikon D3. Portrait sample has strange plain of focus. Right eye somehow blurry - maybe because of decentered optics.

In reply to:

Vizio Virtù: I'll never understand for what reasons people are so enthusiastic about these crappy mirrorless cameras. OK, they look nice but image quality - especially skin tones and skin texture - is so bad.

Of course setting aside the mirror does not affect image quality. But all mirrorless today (at least the ones I tried mysellf resp. watched full resolution samples) suffer from bad sensors and / or bad image processing engines. Even full frame mirrorless.

On Nikon Coolpix P7800 real-world samples article (80 comments in total)
In reply to:

jonikon: The images show an amazing amount of detail for such a small sensor camera. No doubt in large part due to the excellent Nikkor lens in the P7800 and excellent noise handling that retains detail as well. This is about as good as it gets for a camera with a tiny sensor!

Don't agree. My Nikons (D3, D3x, D200, D 5100) produce just perfekt skin tones ooc. Very natural and not that reddish you often see from other brands. Of course, to know your camera helps to get good results. Proper in camera tonal curve settings are importan likewise using NX2 when shooting RAW.

The portrait here (2709291.jpg) is overexposed.

ArcaSwiss: Who cares I'm never giving Adobe another cent.

Agree. Personally I can't remember Adobe anymore. Deleted all my legal (!) copies of their stuff (LR4 + CS5) and feel free now. No one needs this to create amazing pictures.

On Why make a small-sensor mirrorless camera? article (285 comments in total)

can't get it, this is just ridiculous. What the hell took you five years of development to come out with such a poor and totally overpriced coolpix stuff??? The whole system is dead on arrival. Those who wanted high-quality mirrorless will not buy it because it doesn't fit their needs and those who are satisfied with lower IQ won't buy it because they can't afford it (or get better for less by the competition). Hello - goodbye, V1.
