It sounds like the M-Fn Bar is very well named.

Trin56: A question for Barney or anyone else who has used this camera:- I am not a wedding photographer and rarely use the second card in a two card set-up for back-up. Mostly one card is NEF's and the other jpegs. Can the single card have two folders; one for NEF's and one for jpegs?

Thanks

A rite of passage in my neighborhood was to lie between the tracks and let a train pass over you. Probably frowned upon now.

Far to big and heavy. I'll wait for the mirrorless version.

GRUBERND: most airlines in europe officially restrict cabin luggage to 8kg. with 5kg net-weight that leaves 3kg for actual gear, which is.. well, not really much for a case like that. bummer.

I fly weekly on Air New Zealand. It has a 7kg limit. 2kgs of camera gear???

jim bennett: "Now that the D5 has 20.8 megapixels a shutter speed of at least 1/2000th is needed to freeze most fast moving sport. What many people don’t realise is that the more megapixels you have the faster shutter speeds necessary to freeze the same action. "
This is the first time I have heard this. I have always been under the impression that it was about having a high enough shutter speed in relation to the focal length of the lens, and taking into account any crop factor that changes the equivalent focal length, but needing a faster shutter with more megapixels is news to me.

This sounds to me like the long discussed issue about getting tack sharp images with a D810. I wonder what shutter speed he would suggest for that camera? 1/4000th if the differences are linear?

Mike Sandman: Most cameras now come with wifi and an app for controlling the camera remotely. If you have a camera with wifi, the manufacturer probably offers an app for controlling it from a tablet of smartphone. So you can use Tether Tools products that make it possible to mount your iPad or other tablet on a swivel attached to your tripod. The cost is around $150, and you don't have to worry about cables. (But wifi eats batteries...).

I have no latency problems with a D750, WiFi and qDslr. It works as well as my old system using tethered Camera Control Pro.

I have been using a similar setup with a D750, Surface Pro 3 and qDslr. This has the advantage of working wirelessly so you can move the Surface Pro wherever you want. qDslr's control parameters are excellent and it has the additional advantage that it is free.

Tharaphita: I think it is worth to note that about SD cards clearing buffer UHS-II class card works actually at 45MB/s speed at UHS-I cameras like D750. UHS-I class at 95MB/s would better to test.

A SanDisk Extreme Pro 280 MB/s UHS-II is written to at 37.8 MB/s in the D750 whereas a SanDisk Extreme Pro 95 MB/s UHS-I is written to at 68.8 MB/s. DPR's observations show that the bottleneck in the D750 is not the card.

People who want to waste their money. The D750 card slots have contacts for the UHS-I cards only. UHS-II cards have extra contacts which the D750 can't see, so they actually run slower.

webrunner5: What this review shows is that we are pretty much unable to see much difference between cameras anymore.

Just spend your money on a camera you feel comparable with and have a bunch of lenses with it and have a good time. End of story.

I completely agree with Teila. The most challenging photography I do is of deer, at dusk, at long range, and every little improvement in ISO performance makes a huge difference to me.

Now they just need to find the negatives from the first moon landing. Every photographer on the planet has a better filing system than NASA.

(unknown member): Look, it just a camera for the cost of a car, so what? Is there any point comparing ISO performance you are never going to use? I have not EVER, not even ONCE gone higher than 800 ISO on any digicam since I gave up film, and the fast lenses available mean that you never need to. The problem is the temptation to use slow , bad zooms, instead of more range limited and faster good ones or primes. NOw we can buy good f1.8 primes at 28mm, 35mm 50mm and 85mm and have 2470 and 70200 zooms at f2.8 the need for high ISO has gone.
As no camera I have ever used can go above 400 without it affecting resolution in any case, I fail to see why there are such discussions among people who anyway have not got and do not use these cars!!

I figure I am the target market for the D4s. I go deer stalking with a bunch of friends several times a year. They all use rifles; I use a camera. You are most likely to find a deer at dawn or dusk, i.e. very limited light. The higher ISO the better, plus full weatherproofing is a must. Perfect camera to replace my F5.

armanius: Impressive camera! Might have to buy my first Nikon DSLR. I wonder why Nikon kept the ISO button on the left side. Looks like a winner though.

There is a very simply solution to this often quoted ISO Button problem. Assign ISO control to one of the Command Dials.
f6 "Change main/sub" is ON, d3 set to "Show ISO/Easy ISO. Then you can adjust aperture/speed with one and ISO with other.
