A new camera designed for Cinema. Why are they using 2:3 ratio sensor from a photographic camera as opposed to designing a sensor purely for Cinema. It appears all they are doing is using the same sensor from a photographic camera and put it in a different shell.

While they are fixing the issue, they should change it to 101. they should be able to perfect it for the 101th Anniversary.

I was looking forward to the release of this camera, shooting with a D4 & D3 at the moment. Im hoping to see some sample photos of this camera shot at 12,800ASA at a 1 minute exposure time. Ive got my doubts if it can do this.

dennis tennis: If Nikon sells the D850, battery grip, big battery, charger, plus the holy trinity primes for $2K, it'll sell like tribbles. See, so simple to think outside the box and increase sale. Make me the next CEO. No? Nikon, you had your chance at world domination with me at the helm but you blew it. Only Dennis can make Nikon great again.

I agree with you dennis tennis, If Nikon does what you recommend the D850 will outsell every other camera on the market. You will see every Canon, Fuji, Sony etc etc users switch to the Nikon D850. But its like saying if Ferrari releases there top of the range vehicle to sell at $40,000 I definitely would rush in and buy one. The question is how many days will it take for them to go bankrupt. So if by miracle both these companies do this ill make sure ill be first in line.

I know of the golden hour, never heard of the purple hour, am I the only one. Is there anyone out there going to introduce a Burgundy with a touch of Lavender Hour or maybe a Pink hour.

A good quality set of AA batteries for this flash would cost me $28. I am very suspicious of the quality of this flash. Ill wait till they have a special where if you buy a set of AA batteries they will throw in a free flash.

Chris59: A great way to ensure that third party or legacy lenses can't be used...

It will be a non interchangeable lens camera.

Sorry I can't see any evidence on any of these images where there is a reasonable quality in low light.

TwoMetreBill: Barometric altimeter, give me a break. My wife and I were eating lunch one day in the Rocky Mountains. We have a very good barometric altimeter. In less than an hour, sitting still in a parked car, the altitude changed by a thousand feet. This thing has GPS with accuracy to at least 40' out of water. Out of water, barometric altimeters are little more than random number generators.

What were you eating. sandwiches. hot hamburger or very steamy soup & were windows of car open as the steam and humidity of the food may have interfered with your instrument.

radix1: what's the crop factor of this thing?

YES. its a full frame size 1/2.3" sensor

Why is there no information re what model camera was used, lens, shooting mode, shutter speed, aperture ASA etc.

Group shot of the unhappy Nikon guys. what camera was used for this shot, the colors look horrible. hopefully it wasn't the D5 or the D500.

VENTURE-STAR: So what are you supposed to do with this thing? Wear it on the top of a helmet or use it on a long pole? Wish I could see some point, but its just a silly toy Do something useful Nikon, like building a really good affordable cameraphone.

Or Improve on the flashguns

To those guys that clicked on "I Had It" so did I. I also had a D500 about 30 years ago but got rid of it due to memory cards were not available then.

DavidNJ100: This is what the Canon 7D Mark II should have been. Impressive. 16-80mm/F2.8 VR? Where did that come from. The standard has been 17mm-50mm/55mm. That is quite a zoom range (24mm-120mm equivalent) for a constant F2 .8 aperture. Update: it is F2.8-F4 introduced 6 months ago. I've been using the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 and Sigma 50-150 F2.8.

My only comment would be how close it is in price to the D750. It has a few features over the D750 because it is a generation newer. Would it be unreasonable to expect a D760 with the new D500 features?

Ive tried that lens. it is a good sharp lens. it goes to f4 so what a lot of people dont need f2.8.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Can't imagine why I would want any camera that wasn't actually 35mm or bigger.

I have a D3 & D4. there will always be a market for APSC it does have advantages. Im thinking of getting a a APSC camera or a 4/3 camera.

Franco8: What about the Panasonic GM 5 with the 12~32mm lens. Some say its not classed as a compact camera, but it is a lot smaller then the FZ1000 & X100. put a 15mm pancake lens on it and it will become a pocket camera.

Yep your right Chris Common Sense is no longer common these days. Bit like a "Still Photograph" or a "Digital Tripod" or a "Full Frame Camera"

In reply to:

Dash29: The term 'compact camera' doesn't relate to the product accurately. Regardless that it has been an established marketing term in the camera industry for a couple of decades now, its still wrong and is backed up by posts within this thread. It's not a convenient label for fixed-lens cameras, no matter what the opinion of those who think it is.

Since the camera world has grown, quality and brains has been on the decline with people that use the equipment. Its now a gimmick society.

Hi Dash29. I agree with you "Idiocracy" is on the rise. Evidence of this are marketing terms being used such as "Full Frame Camera" or "Full Frame Lens" or "Digital Tripod" or "Digital Camera Bag".
