nicolaiecostel: No 4k, no dual cards, AF point grouped up in the center. The three year old D750 eats it for breakfast.

It's very strange from Canon to release a camera with 2012 specs.

@vcsd: no, but it has dual slots, it has a good spread of the AF points, an onboard flash, a 1/200 sync

In my area, the 6d is the primary tool for many wedding videographers, and they're starting to drop them as they move for 4k to Sony and Panasonic.

I estimate that a good percentage of 6d's used today are used for filming. And it needed to have a flippy screen, it needed to have 4k (as others are discussing 8k already), it needed flat profile.

Sure, dual pixel is important for video, but most cameramen I know prefocus in liveview and thenthey shoot, or they just focus manually so I think it's not as important as the lack of 4k. Sales will be hit by this!

WayneHuangPhoto: The water may be pure, but let me tell you...all those bits of plastic that end up in the Pacific, and eventually in the food chain, which we're a part of, that's the opposite of pure.

Since northern european people are so fastidious at recycling, I highly doubt any of those plastic water bottles will end up in the Pacific.

What I'm worrid about is all the plasticisers and c*ap that leakes into the water from the PET bottle. Real water is and should be sold in glass bottles. Go to any restaurant and if they serve you the water in plastic, they're not worth the checque in my book.

retr01976: So Nikon color is looking better these days. How does it now compare with Fuji and Canon - honestly ?

My D750 has really true colors, there's barely anything to edit in the files, compared to the D700. I can't say about Canon anything but I have had to process some Canon files from a 6D and apart from the good OOC colors, it was a pain to edit to to the rather small dynamic range.

ttran88: I don't think these save Nikon attempts will result in anything much. Only Fujifilm and Japanese government can save Nikon.

I hope you know you're quoting a fake rumor.

How long since the strobe starts flashing till you're escorted out of the venue by the security ?

Impressively good shots. That's one skilled photographer with some great tools in hand.

These may not be the best but they are damn good, and I am quite the critic

(unknown member): Electronic shutter and still has rolling shutter.
Very few "sports" lenses.

Great specs for gearheads. Bad for professionals.

Yeah, I've always found 1/8000 to be so limiting. I mean, can't a guy shoot at f/0.95 and ISO100 in bright sunlight at the beach without using an ND filter ?

Boomanbb: Finally (for me), an interesting sports camera from Sony. Based on current Sony cameras, do they have a battery grip for two batteries AND is it capable of taking at least 6,000 photos (not all at 20fps)?

Man, I shot sports and dancing contests. And I will probably shoot some more even though it's not my primary field. Because of storage and file handling issues, I limited my shooting to bursts of 1-2 seconds, just at the right time so I could get away with sorting and processing only 2-5 thousand pictures. Imagine shooting 20-40 frames each time something happens on the pitch, it would be madness.

I don't know how you shoot football, dancing and whatnot, but for me anything more than 8-10 frames a second is pointless and a hassle.

As you go and increase the fps in the late tens, twenties, you just get copies of the same file and you clog up your memory cards and you spend time sorting the files. Agree that you can't make the job you make with the 1Dx with the rebel 450D, but there is a limit beyond only special applications require such insane fps values, and it's why the big boys did not bother, they only increased the fps steadily for marketing sake.

Why would one need 20 frames per second ?

NDT0001: Fuji is on the right track. Leaving the other major players behind in the MF market.

Nah, they can't even dream to surpass the likes of Hasselblad and Phase One. Their rival is Pentax, on the amateur MF market. Fuji has a lot of work to do if they want to be considered by pros currently using Hassy and PO, people like that pay 7000 dollars for a parabolic umbrella. People upgrading from full frame DSLR's will love this camera though.

phoenix15: And Ricoh is sleep tight.

Pentax has a wide and a tele at around 4 grand if i remember correctly. And their 645z viewfinder has been criticized to be "dissapointingly small for a MF camera", i don't know what you're on about.

Pentax is going bye-bye.

In reply to:

Arkienkeli: I suppose 23mm is a great lens, but the price seems quite high considering it is slow at only f/4 and the image circle is only slightly larger than many FF lenses already have (like Sigma Art series). New Nikkor 20mm f/1.8 goes for under $800 and Sigma Art 20mm and 24mm f/1.4 (!!!) for under $900 and $850, just for comparison.

f/4 is not fast for medium format, f/2 is fast. f/2.8 is kinda fast, f/4 is kinda slow especially if we're considering the fact that this is not true medium format, it's only bigger than FF35mm.

If this were a lens for tripod work and architecture, it should have been tilt-shift.

Compared to 4-5 grand hassy and PO lenses, this is a bargain.

In reply to:

Lawson Raider: A good deal if you want to upgrade from a Hero HD, Hero 2, or a Hero 3 White. However, Hero 3+ Silvers, blacks, and the Hero 4 line you can sell your camera for more money that the tradeup is offering.

That is if you can find a buyer at a decent price.
