  • Hi Marti snd congrats for your assignment. Happy moderating! But my impression is you won't be too busy in this forum. Just out of curiosity: did you ask for it or were you approached by dpr staff? ...
  • Replied in Nikon P7800
    I thought so too but the first two times I sent the original camera for repair it was returned to me each time with a note that they cleaned the contacts and that there was nothing wrong with it ...
  • Are you kidding? Haven't you seen the Margaritaville episode of South Park? :-D http://southpark.cc.com/full-episodes/s13e03-margaritaville
  • Replied in Nikon P7800
    It is fixable, but as far as I know they have to replace the entire button/controller section from the back of the camera so I guess it will be expensive - that's what I was told was replaced in ...
  • Replied in Nikon P7800
    It frustrates me too. It seems that this class of small and highly versatile cameras (packed with all kinds of advanced features and with a very good and sharp medium-range zoom lens) was ...
  • Sure, but is that a fair comparison? And when the same kind of cherry-picking to make the numbers look nicer was done for European countries as well, the US statistics would still turn up several ...
  • Hey, exactly the same happened with my P7700. It started to behave like this within 6 months of the purchase - I had it fixed under warranty (after it had been returned to me twice with "nothing ...
  • Not a bad idea :)
  • Since I am still waiting for a suitable replacement for my P7700 to be announced (by any manufacturer), I'd say the DLs belong here in the Coolpix forum (they will be fixed-lens cameras after ...
  • I will stick to the old dark scheme, it is less tiring and more pleasant to my eyes, but kudos to dpreview for offering the light scheme as an option.

  • Replied in The rationale...
    My guess is that they do this teasing thing primarily to stop at least some of would-be customers from buying the existing cameras (or just announced but sooner available cameras) from the ...
  • Replied in Oddly enough...
    ... but zoom rocker on DL24-500 is located around the shutter release button, like on most other compact cameras. I must admit I didn't notice this little detail, thanks for pointing it out. It ...
  • Replied in 1980 VW Golf
    I got my first car in 1987 when I was 19 y.o. A 1980 VW Golf. In 1997 I replaced it with a 1987 VV Golf. Both Golfs were highly reliable and dirt-cheap to maintain, both of them where in perfect ...
  • Thanks André. I think it must be some kind of mechanical temperature-dependent deformation at play. It gets worse when it is very warm (for example after taking a lengthier video; the lower right ...
  • Sadly, agreed... ... if it had an articulated screen, a hot-shoe, a microphone port - then yes. But it doesn't. :-( Sorry, I am just venting ... ;-) The other day I almost jumped the trigger on a ...
  • Valid point and I have considered it, but... ... this is why I remain in serious doubts about DL24-85 as a replacement for the Ps. Another thing is of course the missing EVF and mic port on ...
  • It seems we all more or less agree - no newer 1" camera currently available can replace P7700/7800 without some quite serious functional compromises in one way or another. Writing speed on P7700 ...
  • Replied in Agreed (nt)
  • Your sarcasm aside, none of the reasons that you mentioned would be valid (or understandable) - and I think you know I did not mean anything like that. In fact, I would have thought that I made it ...
  • Created discussion thread DLs to replace P7800?
    I am disappointed that the new line of Nikon compacts does not also include a model that would adequately replace P7700/7800 type of camera. DL24-85 comes closest, but there are too many things ...
