Omg, that live view AF is awfully jumpy, is it really a 2017 release?

adengappasami: what a day for DPREVIEW>...Nikon announcing something that already looks like a winner and DPREVIEW must be enjoying now.

Hint - DPREVIEW loves NIKON

It seems Canon cameras get most reviews on this website, DPR loves Nikon but loves Canon more.

The Fat Fish: As a Canon user I must say this is impressive. Canons attitude has been to release the absolute bare minimum (5DIV) or less than the bare minimum (6DII) and hope for the best. Nikon are releasing everything they can. Great stuff Nikon.

True, but Canon users will only blind buy Canon gears no matter what Canon gives them.

Halina123: What a monstrous dinosaur.
Announced on the same day as the Samsung galaxy note 8.
I'm sure the Samsung will out sell it by a factor of 100 to 1.

1000 to 1 or more to be exact.

So they put so much effort to fix the logo but very little effort to other critical component failure?

scokill: Why would you do a portrait test with "sports" cameras?

He also did video comparison test and many other tests with these sports cameras in the same video.

BadScience: how can this be a comparison without everybody using the same monitor, calibrated the same, and under the same lighting conditions?

Bad: "Plus, the cameras should be labeled A B C rather than by their name, and A B C swapped randomly *every* time to remove bias."

Were you by any chance saw 21:37 (or similar footage) in the video and mistaken that was the image test part?

Btw, he did labelled the cameras as A B C without showing the cameras' names and he did swap the A B C photos randomly in each of the 12 sets of photos, revealed the answers afterward.

Thuravi Kumaaran: Sony towards blue/cool and unnatural , so more dynamic range etc....

Nikon try to compensate by adding yellowish warm color on it ......

Canon towards more realistic with natural warm colors, so naturally less dynamic range with amazing colors........

LOL, I agree.

BadScience: how can this be a comparison without everybody using the same monitor, calibrated the same, and under the same lighting conditions?

How can you just label the camera A B C without revealing the camera names for this almost 45 min all round review from AF, DR, Buffering to many others?

The image quality part is a tiny bit of the full video and definitely not the main in his wonderful review - I hope you have watched the entire video before commenting.

As for the image comparison part, I have a feeling that you seem to think the way he does it is kind of pointless. To me this comparison part is helpful on some levels despite everybody's monitor colors, room lighting and so on are different, imagine a person who saw this review and picked mainly Nikon images out of this test and bought the D5, this person would be very likely to use his own monitor that he used to see this review to view the photos taken by his new bought D5, rather than using others' monitors like the ones at your home or many others' homes.

How can it be possible to make a true comparison with everybody using the same monitor, calibrated the same and under the same lighting conditions?

True but most people's results are Canon 1Dm ii photos least picked.

Kanano: Sad that the pentax flagship camera is not included. But then dpreview seems to be tripping over itself to promote and publish articles to prove that the Sony A9 is just as good, if not better than canon or Nikon.
For this test, pentax may have been even stood it ground with these 3 cameras!
But then it may not have been in dpreview's interest to show a much cheaper camera performing as well as the expensive and promotional A9!
The A9 would of course excelled in tracking focus of the models as they smiled while being shot at more than 10 frames per second with a silent shutter in case the models get spooked! Would beat all other models in those conditions :)

I feel recently Dpreview has been finding quite a number of articles, videos from other websites in which already second hand news, I call them easy materials posted here. Soon camera reviews isn't the main in here and Deep Review may need to change its name to Light Review. I sincerely hope I am totally wrong.

There are many down sides of the A9 reported honestly by the reviewer in this video as you already knew as you watched the full clip, one of them was the A9 AF system in his findings was a lot weaker than the 1Dxii and D5 in which was a big blow, if Dpreview intended to promote the A9, this review would be a thoroughly bad choice.

Mike Sandman: OK, it was fun to rate the images, but... It's not called a blind test for nothing.
(1) results will vary depending on how your monitor is calibrated, and probably depending on your graphics card.
(2) I almost never shoot JPEGs, so it was fun but useless as a practical matter
(3) There are some really good points in the rest of the video, particularly in the concluding section, and that section is probably more useful in delineating these cameras than the blind test.
I'm a Sony a7RII shooter; formerly Canon. Scores: Nikon 29, Sony 25, Canon 17, for what it's worth, which is nothing. :-)

Everybody's monitor, graphic card produce different colors as well as the calibrated ones, but the comparison test is useful on some levels, if a viewer who chose mostly Nikon photos from this review, then bought the D5, he would likely be viewing the photos of his own D5 using his own calibrated/non calibrated monitor that also used to see this review. In this case nothing would go wrong for him to follow this review. Of course if he shoot raw only then it is another story.

Canon fan boys would be like: I picked mostly 1Dm ii photos while in fact they were shocked by actually picking photos from all cameras evenly after they saw the result. Same thing for other fanboy supporters.

You have much more important things to do than this, your people are in dangerous situations.
