A companion camera is exactly what I am looking for from Nikon. I currently own a D3 - thats my action camera, and still good for events / sports, a D800, thats my camera for artistic photography, now what I am looking for is a full frame in a small format. Originally I tried a micro 4/3 solution for a small body, but the low light capabilities just were not there, any iso above 400 was unusable (to my eyes). I would dearly love a small light weight camera. I am also ok with Nikon introducing an adapter for the F mount, and so offering a new mount for the mirrorless. Then what I intend to do is periodically update each of my companion bodies, and probably that will mostly be the D800 and new mirrorless.

Current speculation over at Nikonrumors seems to indicate a nikon mirrorless fullframe with a totally new "Z" mount, and a very advanced adapter...

Nikoncanonfan: Why spend all that money on a camera then cobble together a Frankenstein combination if different brands with optical compromises? Just get the right lens for the right camera, or hold on a few months for Canikon mirrorless were all going to want to start again then anyway..

There's a very good chance that the Nikon Mirrorless will require an adapter too, or that seems to be the prevailing thinking over at Nikonrumors.

This reminds me of a previous article here on dpr about the iconic tree in a Norwegian landscape (I think it was), where once the location became common knowledge the tree was destroyed by vandals. Personally I prefer to keep my exact photo locations under a bit of mystery, mostly to preserve the integrity of the places.

Really fascinating article, thanks! Its now quite clear (to me) why its so hard for a company like Nikon to increase lens production. A process like this is intense in terms of expert manual labour, and probably not so simple to fully automate.
This makes me appreciate my Nikkor collection a whole lot more.

Just like in 1984, we could have a ministry of truth, that worked out really well...

On article Huawei P20 Pro vs Canon 5DS R (58 comments in total)

As expected the phone really suffers in shadow detail and low light, so completely pointless comparison really.

Would be interesting to know what gloves you used as that is always a problem for me, there are very few good solutions to feeling the controls, and being able to change camera settings without exposing the finger tips. My current best is 2 gloves, one thin inner glove and then the top glove with fingertips that fold back, but even then you really feel the cold on your fingertips, and risk frostbite.

I too look forward to learning how he was able to successfully operate his camera/lenses in such inhospitable conditions.

Always a good idea to keep your spares close to your body, as this helps retain the charge (I know this from many Swedish winters).

goshigoo: I thought 5D3 is lacking DR and has the worse sensor compared to Sony sensor?

so where's Sony in the chart ?

Sony is the sensor in the Nikons (from a Nikon user).

Julian: I look forward to the day when the dynamic range of cameras allows for this kind of shot without the need for image manipulation.

For me it feels like cheating to compose a single image from multiple others, then for instance you can literally take the sky from one photo in one part of the world and combine it with the foreground from another part of the world, and only an astronomer will tell you that it is composite.

Who cares about the product when the review video is this entertaining!

Sounds like an interesting innovation by Pentax, here's hoping other manufacturer's follow suit.

Not sure about the phantom 5, but I'm looking forward to the mavic pro 2, something fairly compact, with a variable aperture and Raw possibilities would be very interesting.

Inspiring, thanks for the post.

Great to see a company really innovating with this technology, here's hoping it pans out to a practical sensor we can all use.

Julian: A bit tricky to take a 400MP image of a moving subject then.

Relatively speaking of course.

Julian: Been there and done that, upgraded mine in the summer last year, now it flies.

Well its really not much to boast about, so do not take my comment as a boast, its pretty straightforward to build a pc, and you save a bunch of money from a prebuilt system.
