bildsee: When I upgared to FF the options were Canon 6D and Nikon D600. Despite its better specs I decided against D600 for its oil spread issue and Nikon's poor support of affected customers. I have never looked back.

I am glad you're happy bildsee :)
Personally I went with the D600, and never noticed the oil spread issue, just like I'm sure the majority of D750 users never had any shutter issues.

wootpile: One word: LAME

Lame quality control.

Lame price considering the above.

Lame product development. Unbelievably s-l-o-w development and not enough R/D before hitting market. Nikon gear malfunctioning because of product design faults (not same as quality control). 750 is just one in a long line.

Very very lame customer service.. do the honorable thing, why let your customers discover they have a problem.. Nikon these days shies away from problems and try to postpone recall as long as possible. On a product of this price.. you would (should) expect snappy activity from the brand on problems. Mark my words.. sooner or later EVERY 750 will be recalled. Nikon, exchange all shutters now and regain some honor.

Lame lame company management. I won't elaborate as I believe most Nikon owners permanently live with a little bit of un-satisfaction. We tend to be loyal, but grumpy. Maybe there is a reason for it.. the grumpyness? Hello Nikon, when will you start to listen to your customers?

That makes zero sense Joed700. Nikon is committing to fix any affected camera. Shipping off defective cameras just to have to fix them later, and add additional loss of reputation and load on their support department, makes no sense at all.

I would do it for the story alone :)

Then again I'm no pro. The only weddings I shot were for friends, and weirdly enough they didn't ask me to stay all night long :D

On article First pictures from the new Nikon 8-15mm fisheye (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

Keith Cooper: The Canon 8-15 is a regular in my bag and, with care, can make some great shots. A lot of people when thinking of fisheye lenses forget that any straight line will stay straight if it runs (or can be extended to run) through the centre of the FOV.

So horizons stay straight if through the middle of the frame.

Of course, the number of clients happy with circular images does limit the amount of use at shorter focal lengths, but the Canon lens has helped produce some excellent 44" square prints (circular image @8mm) that work very well.

Add to this tools like fisheye hemi and you have a lot of options for how you choose your final image geometry

Thanks for the links Keith, some nice shots and good advise in there!

I already have a Nikon 10.5mm DX Fisheye, so I am not a complete fisheye newbie, but it is not wide enough to provide a full circular image.
I also use Fisheye Hemi to correct the shots, so it was really useful seeing how it worked with the 8-15mm :)

Do you have some samples?
That would help carry me over until there are more samples of the Nikon out there.

The lens sounds like a lot of fun, and I am pretty sure I will be getting one sooner or later :P

In reply to:

rfsIII: How many of these and how many cameras would I need to create 360° photos and videos?

If I understand the specs correctly you should get away with two cameras/lenses, pointed in the opposite direction, to get a full 360 degree view.

On article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D70 (220 comments in total)

I can still remember the moment I took my first ever shot with a DSLR, trying out my friends D70. The camera seemed huge at the time, and rocking a Coolpix 995 myself I couldn't believe how responsive the camera was, nor the distinct mechanical vibration from the shutter.

Long story short it didn't take me long to buy one for myself, and I've stayed with Nikon ever since ;)

Combatmedic870: Well first we need a smart phone camera sensor capable of 4k @120fps.

I guess VR (where you use your phone for the display) is the only way to really utilize 4K on a 5" screen, but the processor could obviously be used for tablets, smart TV's and other things as well.

Not really. The content doesn't have to be created on a phone to be watched on a phone.

This is a common issue for hardware projects on Kickstarter. Unless you have experience getting these types of products to market you always underestimate the cost and complexity involved.

RedFox88: Too bad their dslrs do video poorly still!

Have you tried the D500? It's actually quite good ;)
(except for the heavy crop in 4k mode, admittedly)

In reply to:

Nikonandmore: We are only away from true zooming & bokeh/shallow depth of field available on cell phones & its game over. In most people's wildest dreams to imagine that some phones today would have better sensors, IQ, resolution & low light capabilities than DSLRs only 10 years. So imagine 10 years ahead as progress in this field advances exponentially. My bet, depth & 3D sensing, multiple fixed lenses designs allied to computational imaging & massive mobile computing power, optical zooms like on the Asus Zoom Zen Phone & other new breakthru lens designs, will completely eat away the point&shoot market & DSLRs. Equally further on, many current photography brands will be gone or doing something else. At the speed some are already loosing market share & plunging sales figures, Im surprised they are still afloat. Others (like Samsung for example) already made the switch & exited the "photography gear" (ie RIP the NX line) & ONLY do photographic hardware for cellphones. Of course, I may totally wrong:)

Technology being equal a large sensor will always capture more light than a small one, so a state of the art DSLR should always have better image quality than a state of the art phone.

That being said, we might get to a point where less and less people bother to get DSLR's or compact cameras.

Raintitan: It is wonderful that nearly everyone has a good-enough camera in their pocket so that so many people can learn, enjoy and experience photography.

I don't understand why so many are being critical.

Couldn't agree more.
I don't carry my DSLR with me everywhere, and having a phone with a good camera (Samsung GS6 in my case) means you get decent photos even when you left your DSLR at home.

While not a first for a phone, the dual lens camera is a nice feature that should improve many types of shots (portraits in particular), and I am certainly hoping to see that in more phones moving forward.

Triplet Perar: We need lenses to tell lies, not to reveal truth. The context is always ugly in some way, let's hide all that. So we need lenses as this one to hide the ugly backgrounds in all pictures and in stories, only to show how beautiful and insanely great people are when taken outside any context.

Are you serious??

CameraLabTester: The best HDR image is the one you can't tell if HDR was done or not.

Word!
There are so many people claiming that HDR is bad, period.
What they really mean is that poorly done, exaggerated HDR is bad.

In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: HDR is still ugly. Technology isn't up to par yet to match the dynamic range of the human eye.

Ugly HDR is ugly. Good HDR is not, and can be used for great effect.

HDR is a bit like CGI in movies. When you notice it being used it is probably overdone, but when you don't even realize you are looking at CGI/HDR, then it's a different story.

Aur: The Nikon D5500, a revolutionary camera, everything you know and love, in the same body. We heard your suggestions, and we changed absolutely nothing.

-Nikon

Myself I have close to a hundred thousand photos taken with various cameras over the years. If I look through them all it is not a problem to spot where they were taken, but it would be nice if they could be organized by location without me having to look through them all ;)

Also, I occasionally take pictures at locations less iconic than the colosseum in Rome, but YMMW :)

Papi61: Every mid-range Android has 1080p nowadays. I wouldn't call anything without a quad-HD screen a "flagship."

Seriously though, who really needs more than 1080p on a phone with a screen smaller than 6 inches.

(says the man with a Samsung Galaxy S6..)
