Seems the crumbles polaroid has been getting from Fujifilm practically prevailing in the instant film market and by signing various Polaroid survival agreements over the years is not enough any more

looking around for images of the shading implementation in viewfinder crop modes, not finding anything yet. Very curious about it.

Halina123: The D850 will be the epitaph for Nikon.
Very few people need a full frame DSLR.
The 1 System was the future. They blew it with poor marketing and absurd pricing. And now they neglect it.

Possible ....

It seems often to me like camera makers, at least the two main DSLR ones, are in backstage arranging how not to cross eachother's market fields , eg something like Nikon agrees not to implement something like dual pixel video AF in their cameras until xyz date in exchange from Canon not making a fast 35+ MP camera until zyx date.

In reply to:

WillWeaverRVA: Wow, you held nothing back on this one. I'm definitely not surprised - I know a couple of people who enthusiastically bought KeyMission 360s when they came out, only to get rid of them shortly after due to the horrible app performance, calling it a "waste of money". If the app didn't suck so badly, it'd probably be a great product for the budding 360-degree/VR market.

Would be nice to see more users who use the updated software post the same experience

Nikon software issues have been geometrically increasing since 2014 reaching an impressive degree now of company's complete inability to connect with both the market but mostly with their own products. Its like literally no one on the decision making and approval ranks of Nikon ever uses any of their products. Or are they maybe using it in ways that are a far cry from the market they target? Might be a result of some japanese dysfunctional avoidance of challenging authority culture ? No idea, but software wise the last two years Nikon has amazing software screw-ups especially for the size and tech potential of the firm.

medicus: Hi!
From my point of view it is not absolutely clear wheater the converters are intented for use on the 150-600mm. Due to the aperture AF would not work anymore. This is a rther useless combination.
The lens itself seems to be great.

Its been a while now that newer cameras AF work with f/6.3 lenses + 1.4 TC. Sigma sells their 150-600 also in a pair package option with their TC. D500 has 15 F/8 lens capable focus points, D7200 can use the central FP.

I am not remembering ever seeing a Nikon questionnaire for D300 users. I don't get Nikon claim catering and listening to user needs. The only thing they seemed to have "listened" is that for years now D300 users were waiting for a replacement and in the end they gave up. And what made Nikon make the D500 most probably was the market monopoly of 7D Mk II and the related large number of D300 users switching to 7D Mk II.

If they somehow listened to users (cause i don't get how they are doing it) i doubt that D500 would have been flashless and with two different kind of card slots or 20MP instead of 24 (even if that would mean 8fps instead of 10)

On article Nikon releases Capture NX-D 1.0.3 and View NX 2.10.2 (47 comments in total)

I need to add my rant against this piece of sh*** software. If i realized how bad it is i would had never went the D7200 way. This crime of shooting NX2 in the head and together many users like me who were counting on it and instead give this piece of cr*** that is impossible to do professional work with , i dont know, sounds like "f** off our dear Nikon client we just couldn't care less about what you do with our cameras."

I wonder if anyone in there in the Nikon mess has tried to use professionally this counter-productive software before literally shove it to our faces. To have to work on hundreds of wedding images ASAP and wait for the damn thing for eternity to refresh a setting changed, on a perfectly powerful PC???

Really Nikon ? Are you f*** serious?

And its SO easy: just issue firmwares that make the new nefs CNX2 compatible. Period.

In reply to:

mmr: I'm considering moving away from my sigma dp2q to either a fuji xt-1 or a 7200; is it possible to add any of the sigmas (even the Merrill) to this tool?

On a similar note, how do I choose which lens is on the body?

the DX bodies are shot with the 50 1.4, the FX bodies are shot with the 85 1.4
