The worst thing about the DF is the Disappointment

Re: Chris Niccolls is WRONG

I have no stake in this but I've been rather impressed by his openness about to highlight the weak points in of a review item. Of course the camera store is selling cameras and isn't a third party review source (which incidentally almost always need advertising revenue to continue to review). He seems to realize quite rightly that what may be a turn off for some might be an asset to others.

The point is every review is de facto biased, it's just a matter of sorting out what utter bs and what may be useful to you.

Chris Niccolls from The Camera Store does a proper Nikon Df video preview and seems very positive about the Df.


First of all, Chris is a salesman. He MUST like whatever product he covers in a video. He does this well, but he isn't going to tell you to not buy a camera because it is rubbish.

Secondly, did you actually WATCH this video? Chris pointed out that his team could not shoot with the Df because it was a preproduction model. It was nonfunctional, or for legal reasons his team was forbidden to shoot with it. Either way, this is not a proper video review! Just talking about a camera and not testing it is a PREVIEW.
