@DioCanon
I think it's you who needs to take a closer look in the history books.
Releasing the first FF sensor isn't all that impressive when Nikon were pioneers in bringing us digital SLR's in the first place. The same goes for video in DSLR's, where Nikon was first (if only by one day).

In the end both brands have been important in the development of camera technology. Picking a handful of things either did first to claim they are more innovative overall is just silly IMO.

Wow, that's pretty impressive.
A lot of people will use the D800 for everything, and having good high ISO performance as well as high resolution is great ;)

tampadave: I downloaded the ISO 200 samples of the D800 and canon 7D (which I own). I had to increase the image size of the 7D sample to match the size of the D800 sample as it appears on my monitor. Some parts of the Nikon image look better, but other parts of the Canon image look better too. To my untrained pixel peeping eyes, overall, it's a push.

The sample shots doesn't seem to be in focus everywhere. Certain parts are much sharper than others.

Crop cameras have more DOF and should have more parts in focus, making them look sharper in comparison.

williejr: 1DX will beat the D4 hands down in specs, picture quality and video once it is all said and done. D3S stills are better according to a lot of Nikon forums.

Sure ;)

Hughesnet: I got in a preorder for 2 of the 64gb ATT 4G ones. Can't wait for the 16th. Ignore the Android fanboys posting here. This tablet has twice the resolution of theirs, supports usb connection to your camera or a SD card, has iPhoto, has a great built in cam. There is nothing photography related their android tablets can do better.

The Apple crowded survived sub par resolution in the iPad 2 for a while, so I don't think waiting a couple of months for a similar display in an Android tablet should be too hard ;)

Deleted1929: I'm numbed by the need to pump 36 Mp into this. Someone needs to take Nikon management off whatever strange substances they're taking.

And why is it that Nikon won't let you bracket in more than 1EV steps ? Why such a ludicrous limitation ? So if I want to bracket for HDR I have to shoot 5 shots just to cover 4 EV extra ? Does anyone in Nikon actually do HDR ? On a D5000 I can bracket 4 EV in just three shots.

People have been b|tching about a reasonable high res Nikon since the dinosaurs, and I don't mind them filling that gap.

I totally agree on the bracketing thing though. Is the dynamic range in the pro cameras really so poor you need a shot for every single stop?

In reply to:

JJMacks: Is this technology going to be able to display a view at the speed of light like an optical viewfinder or have the annoying image frame delay I see in current electronic viewfinders? IMO best suited for video recorders and be better large so you don't need to hold the recorder to ones eye.

It doesn't have to view the image at the speed of light, just quick enough for the human brain not to notice the delay.

I am sure in 5-10 years time OVF's will be a thing of the past...

In reply to:

HiRez: Meh. It looks nice, I'm sure it's an excellent camera. That said, it doesn't seem like much of a leap over the D3. If you need HD video, that's obviously a big deal, and we'll have to see if there's been some major leap in ISO performance. But it doesn't seem like they did anything really innovative here (like X100 hybrid VF type thing). And why did they get rid of the AE-L/AF-L button?

I guess we now know what to expect of the D800: evolutionary changes. Probably same sensor as D4, with HD video, maybe 6 fps, and not much else different. Hopefully priced at $2,500 or so, but more likely $3,000.

I agree with AmaturFotografer. These high end work horses are not about revolutionizing anything, its about improving on the features important to the pro's using them.
Canon and Nikon are conservative for a reason. They are big players, and completely changing things around are more likely to lose them market share than to gain it.

Which still photography feature did they not improve??
The color of the camera?

bullfinchphoto: Checkmate Canon!

"However the jump from Canons 1D MK IV to the 1DX is much larger then increasing a sensor with 4MP and call it D4"
Next time you read camera specs, don't stop reading when you get to the resolution :P

whtchocla7e: Nothing new and exciting from a technological standpoint.
Great for the pro and the 'advanced' amateur who thinks he needs it but completely bland for the rest of us..

Sure, I find Ferrari's terribly bland as well, since I could never afford one.

Mach Schnell: Since when does eveyone have an iPhone? Last I checked, Android was outselling iPhone by a pretty large margin. There are 550,000 new Android devices being activated every day. (No, I don't work for Google)

I am sure your article was more about "smart phones vs real cameras" than "iPhone vs Android" ;)

Vladik: Could have taken the opportunity to move production to a more developed country. A place like Nevada would be perfect, cheap land and free of natural disasters, just have to fight the heat.

Well, if you expect the camera workers to work for much less than the rest of the country. If everyone agrees to cut the standard of living I don't see any problems with it ;)

borobudur: Nikon its time to show off ur new stuff right NOW!!

Maybe I'm just an ignorant Nikon fanboy, but is really Canons latest releases that exciting from a still photographers point of view?

What are the killers specs that would make Nikon pro's ditch their gear for the new Canons.

Personally I have been waiting for the D700 update for a while, but frankly I can't afford a new cam and the old one works perfectly well still ;)

Well, if 4K video excites you you might as well get the Canon. I don't think Nikon is releasing that any time soon ;)

mpgxsvcd: I couldn't care less if it is 5 mp or 50 mp. What aperture does it have and is the "zoom" optical or digital.

Apple is so good at advertising their products. You never have to ask "so what is great about this new phone because they blast it out to everyone". Samsung and Google give you little hints about what it might have but it really just confuses the customer in the end.

Well, Apple blast out whatever they think is great about it.

The "problem" with the ICS release is that they have improved upon a million different smaller things, and which of them are the most important for you depends entirely on what you use it for.

rvalle: You know what? Just stick a phone module on a Fuji X10, get it running Android, and I'll be happy.

Oh, I like your thinking. I would LOVE a DSLR based on Android :D

Annoyed that your expensive DSLR can't do -2 / +2 bracketing, or that the max shutterspeed without expensive remotes is 30 seconds?
Download an app that fixes it :)
