Camera these days look and deliver ace A1 results, what I am interested now is looking at the software and camera features to deliver Creative Photography like:-

* Timelapse Video
* Photoshop Montagues that allow still / moving images to be embeded - not sure on the movie side yet with PS CC ?
* Video 1080p - 4K
* Apple Moving Pictures (short videos)
* Video transistion slides incorporating Stills / text / music / Video / Timelapse video, etc... (Proshow Gold now bad for this)
* Video cutting, editing and re-encoding (Videoredo not bad for this)

Hope we see Canon and Nikon improving their own Raw / Properitory software to add in further filters and other cool things above - rather buying shed loads of additional software.

And to project our creations not only to PC but to share to Smart devices like IPads / Phones/ Tv / Multi media consoles, etc.

raztec: Someone at Nikon has finally woken up after some deep hibernation.

However, in typical Nikon fashion they have decided to cripple each camera in one way or another. No ND filter in one and no EVF the others.

This should have been only 2 cameras with identical feature sets except the lenses. An 18-50 and a 24-200. Both with EVFs and ND filtes and macro capabilities. I might have even bought both.

I think think the RX100IV has all the boxes ticked and isn't another cash grab like these cameras.

RX100 is a great series and wished Nikon started the DL series back then and hopefully the image quality and 4K Video will be ace. Hopefully the DL will not have a limit or overheating issue with shooting 4K Video. The Rx100 MK 4 is limited to 5 mins to protect sensor from overheating.

Random Asian Guy: Gee, coming from a Canon and Sony user. The DL18-50 actually interests me for a holiday camera.

The range is much more useful as on holidays you usually want to fit in a lot of scenery. Unless it's the Safari or Whale watching type of holidays.

Small sensor with fast lens is ok. Small Sensor will keep more of the scenery in focus especially at night with the fast lens. I've seen some pretty silly full frame 1.4 photos where you could barely make out the background location.

But I think leaving out a flash is pretty bad idea. On holidays it's annoying having to carry an external flash and charger. Hope there is a review and sample pictures soon.

True on your findings and the only External and light flash for travelling that I can think of using with this would be the SB-400 although you would need AA-batteries and charger and th Sb-400 in relation to the size of the body would be out of character.

Excellent Nikon... could be replacing my Rx100 MK 1 with one of these models 18-50, 24-85mm once price comes down and image + video quality samples are released. Although the Sony Rx100 still produces excellent images and is it worth replacing with a new model ?.

I really wished Nikon brought the DL range out same time as the RX100 and RX10 / Panasonic FZ1000 were announced

richardalanfox: No RAW?

Only B700 and the only one that is worthy of a look at over the Sony RX10 Mk 1/2 and the Panasonic equivalent. Was expecting a Nikon equivalent of Rx100 to be offered by Nikon complete with Raw and only one I think it is - is the A900 which only comes with JPG capture.

thomas2279f: perfect now and b700 has raw and 4k which is good...

Hope the Mods correct above but according to Nikon website the B700 does have NRW Raw capability, wished Nikon added raw anyway to the B500 / A900. I'm not sure whether the A900 is a competitor to the excellent Sony RX100 ? and if it is - it should have had Raw capability.

Good launch and some more competition which is good and hopefully will mean cheaper prices.

Link | Posted on Feb 17, 2016 at 23:38 UTC as 619th comment

Looks good but upon release a bit expensive - think I will leave updating my RX100 and A5000 until prices come down to decent levels.

On article 4K video: What you need to know (286 comments in total)

Is there a good 4k Video editor out there which works with Windows 10, doesn't cost much and with D5/D500 producing separate files for 4K of 3 min each automatically together into one video file >?

noflashplease: Looks like another "industry group." Kinda like HD-DVD? Other than Sony, Panny, and Samsung (assuming they're still in the camera business?) I don't see a lot of participation from actual camera companies?

On the consumer end of things, this announcement doesn't matter at all. As a previous poster stated, the limitations of HDMI 2.0 are the only specs that make a difference.

As far as the production end of content.....who cares outside of the film industry?

Sorry for the vocal rant - not directed at anyone or the good author "the Squire" but the consummer industry in general... so they say (last bit for the Sony Lawyers...)

With the quality of Bluray Video and Full HD Video it is a hard sell to a) Update camera / camcorder to 4K above b) Replace my fully working Bluray player/record with UHD C) same as b but Full HD TV D) Replace / add UHD Bluray titles to my current video library e) Would like a decent Broadband speed where I can download and stream 4K shows / films without delay, data loss, increase subscription cost, etc.

Bit in the late in doing standards where there are lot of cameras and Video Cameras/ Camcorders already with 4K onboard. Best to set old standard or one in play and work for the future 8K Format - probably about 3-5 years away as a guessimate.

On article Nikon fills in the blanks on professional grade D5 DSLR (550 comments in total)

Excitement overload like back to the D3 and D300 announcement. The D5 and D500 on paper look excellent and fingers cross in the field excellent.

Excitement overload - Nikon delivers big time and sorry for bashing them on lack of a pro DX Camera since the D7000 days...

Photo_AK: Anybody even noticed the new high-end Speedlight SB-5000 ...?

http://www.nikon.com/news/2016/0106_sb_03.htm

Looks quite good on paper; additional radio and cooling features / gizmo which could be good to add couple of these in additon to my current SB-910's.

Good announcement - maybe too late to the party as the GO-pro as built up a good presence in the extreme market.

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1175 comments in total)

Excitement overload!!. UK price probably same as 7D MK 2 entry price £1699.99 ish and during the year should depreciate downwards to current 7D MK 2 price around £1299.99'ish...

Certainly going to attempt to save up for this D500 over the year and buy it later after price comes down a bit and any QC issues found, fixed and ironed out.

Wow Love you Nikon -

This should be a smasher along with the D5 - only initial stumbling point for me is the expected UK price - although could get by with the excellent D7200 until I have saved up for it and also possibly sell the D7200.

Good move also to put in the QXD Card slot - hope it is added to the D810 replacement so more punters will take up ownership of the card media.
