On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mihut Ovidiu: Except for the battery life and the included GPS, on paper, nothing makes the Canon 7D II more attractive than the Sony A77 II. On the contrary.

Check the financial stats for both companies... Canon is No.1 for good reason and leads the competition across P&S, super-zoom, travel zoom, APS-C and full frame... Nikon isn't even in second place... Of course micro four thirds is dominated by Panny & Olympus... buts that's a different class of camera by itself...

The Davinator: No 4K video. Same rehashed sensor tech from more than 5 years ago. Looks like Canon has been asleep the last half decade.

Better DR is true... but better noise is highly contentious not to mention speculative... Canon may use "inferior" sensors according to dxo & you ... but the reality is their image processing & noise reduction algorithms are still the best...

The Canon whips both the D7100 & A77 II ... can't see the logic behind your comment... The 7D II in all probability will go on to break most sales records for this class of camera...

If you've ever used the original A77 you'll understand why Sony has at least a decade to go before it can stake claim to being the No. 1 APS-C camera manufacturer...

The sensor is 1 year old... Five years ago none of the manufacturers even had 20 MP APS-C sensors...

MikeF4Black: The moaners are out in force. Why? Nikon now has a full frame line-up like no other camera maker. Quite an achievement.

*Best* only according to DXO ... nobody else sings their praises quite as ardently... Considering they're 100% Sony designed & developed sensors... Sony could just as easily stake claim to having the best sensors... the difference between Nikon & Sony probably lies in their respective image processing pipelines -- Nikon's conforming to DXO's testing methodology - therefore getting the better score...

backayonder: Just curious why you would buy a D610 now that the D750 has come along?

D610 sales probably aren't quite as good as what Nikon would have hoped for it to be... As a result we have the D750 ... basically a glorified D600 / 610

Probably using refurbished sensors from all the D600 camera's returned due to oil spots... Buy at your own risk...

Full frame line up with a bunch of recycled 3 year old sensors...

On Fast and full-frame: Nikon announces 24MP Nikon D750 article (406 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dimitris Mitrovgenis: PEOPLE this camera rocks.I love it.It is strong,weather sealed with a new AF system!!!!And not to mention the manageable 24.3 mp. This is the best all around camera to this date.Small light and powerful.
It is better than the 5D mkIII in all aspects.Get serious.
this is the one that tickles me so far.

Oh please... the 5D III is almost 3 years old...! It damn sure had better be better than the Mark III ... had the two camera's been "equal" the Nikon might as well have been relegated to the bargain basement section...

lensberg: Is it true that there's no expandable storage for either phone...???!! No memory card ---------> No sale...!!

You have to be a diehard Apple fan to buy either of these to phones... With new offerings from Samsung, Sony & LG ... these new 6th gen Apples already seem rather antiquated...

But for extended sessions of Full HD recording, I'd much rather prefer the option of memory cards... 128 GB sounds good in theory... but with dozens of apps and the OS itself... that 128 GB is going to shrink considerably...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1600 comments in total)

The 5D Mark III is an all-round class act... definitely superior to the D800 / 800E / 810 in low light...

As for DXO... well I suppose the average Nikon fan needs their egos propped up from a "scientific" point of view... thus its existence...

Its amazing how many pro's use Canon... despite DXO's claims of Nikon's vast sensor tech prowess... at most major international sporting events white lenses still reign supreme... with perhaps with a thin speckling of black glass here and there... :)

On Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom article (203 comments in total)

Waiting with bated breath for the Canon SX60 HS... It needs to take the crown from its predecessor and its rightful place as the undisputed king of all super zooms...

Alternatively Canon also need to enter the 1" sensor market... perhaps with an interchangeable lens system like the Nikon 1 series... and a fixed lens RX100 / 10 style compact / zoom...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1600 comments in total)

Looks like an incremental augmentation of the D800 / 800E ... Whether its worth it or not is anybody's guess... At least it seems like a better thought out product line implementation compared to the mockery of the D610 ...

And coming to think about it... why is there no 4K video capability...?! May not be used all the time, but considering the price point, it would be nice to be somewhat future-proofed in the video specs department...

Why can't Nikon introduce a new model with a brand new sensor altogether...? Or have Sony not licensed one out to them as yet...? I'll bet when the 5D Mark IV is out, it will incorporate a new sensor, image processor, AF module and 99.99% sure it will have 4K video under its belt...

On Sony Alpha 7S added to test scene comparison tool article (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

danny006: Finally Sony beats Nikon at high ISO. The A7s is almost 2 stops better than A6000, pretty good.

A6000 ? ... is cropped and double the resolution at 24 MP ... If this incredible new 7S sensor is only "almost 2 stops" better that's not really saying very much at all...

On Sony Alpha 7S added to test scene comparison tool article (272 comments in total)

Just imagine what Canon would have been able to extract from this sensor... Lets not take anything away from the fact that the 7S has outstanding IQ in both RAW & JPEG... but nevertheless the lingering thought always remains... 12 MP seems rather passé in this day and age...

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2962 comments in total)

I'm seriously hoping that this is a preproduction version... with soon to be updated firmware... Does ACR already support the Mark III ? the lowlight performance is quite disappointing... RX100 II whips RX100 III left, right and center... Bionz X seems to be all hype and very little substance... Probably makes more sense to buy an A6000 instead... pocketablity be damned... endure the bulge and get great photos rather than be relegated to mediocre IQ

On Nikon announces flagship D4s professional DSLR article (70 comments in total)

At the core of the Nikon D4S is a newly developed 16.2-megapixel FX-format CMOS Sensor ............. You're sure its not the same old sensor from the D4 & Df just being recycled...?

In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: Yawn. At least increase the buffer, put it on par with the 1Dx. Or increase the FPS, put it on par with the 1Dx. Or just do something to it except adding a few software algorithms and a new proccesing unit. Who is going to want to upgrade for that.

And excuse me, but I saw some samples at high ISO from the DF and I did not find them particularly good .. I think there is plenty room for improving the ISO performance.

@ HowaboutRAW - To be honest I've never owned either the D4 or 1D-X ... my only real exposure to both these cameras has been due to the fact that my friend manages a photo studio and has both these camera's... Even here my time spent with both camera's has been somewhat limited...

My amateurish testing was conducted with the D4 being fit with an 85mm f-1.4G and the 1D-X with 85mm f-1.2L II ... And after about 100 shots from each camera plus examining them at 100% the Canon was definitely cleaner / sharper from ISO 12800 + ... It may be due to the different lens's being used... but they are both so good, one can't pick a clear winner...

Direct link | Posted on Jan 7, 2014 at 20:56 UTC

Only the Nikon USA website, the D3300's sensor size is indicated as 23.2 x 15.4 mm ... but in Nikon Europe, Singapore, India & Australia the sensor size is listed as 23.5 x 15.6 mm ...! ( including http://imaging.nikon.com )

Which one is correct...?!
