Kid Kurtz: Might seem a silly question but, how do you correct exposure and contrast in a uniform way so the sequence doesn't flicker with varying light levels?

there is software that can be used to correct flicker probably the most common is LR time-lapse but it can also be done in other software as well youtube is full of videos about how to do it

Aaron@Utah: I'm sure this accounts for maybe 1% or less of the sony cameras out there but by all means lets act as if its every sony camera. I have owned over 10 sony mirrorless camera and have yet to has a single card failure. I have had bad cards that couldn't be read from but that was the same for every camera it was tried in so it was tossed
Lexar scandisk and just about any off brand you can think of I have used them with no issues so go ahead boys make a mountain out of a mole hill after all this is what the forum is really about a p...ing contest

Photomonkey: What we have in this comment thread is a large number of non-scientists seeking to doubt the results of a test created by real scientists.

This is clearly a result of years of narrative from some parts that science is fakery.

science you say? well if this science experiments goal was to show what would happen to a plane wing hit by a drone in as close to a actual scenario as possible then they failed, as there is no airflow duplicating the airspeed of the planes wing to show what the actual damage would be from the initial impact plus any addition damage from the wind after the impact One doesn't have to be a scientist to understand the basic concept of duplicating an event as close to reality as possible for gathering scientific data about the event in question

Aaron@Utah: kind of an incomplete test as the wing is stationary with no 238mph wind flowing over it that would be a more accurately test of what could happen with the airflow still occurring after the impact which could further damage the wing and its ability to stay intact
put the wind in a wind tunnel to show the real potential damage that would happen after the initial impact

photomonkey only credentials I bring to the fight is common sense a plane is not going to suddenly stop in midair after it is hit by a drone thus airflow could further damage the wing even after the initial impact

i would like to know how they are effectively going to "take down" a private drone
those say shooting it down ya wake up hillbilly it isn't that easy to shoot down a drone
even with a shotgun unless it within a a few hundred feet and even then it is doubtful to bring it down shoot it with a hand or rifle you say ya can't wait for that lawsuit for a from a stray bullet killing someone from someone that is trying to shoot down a drone with one of those types of weapons plus even if you may be lucky enough to down it what happens when it injures or kill someone on the ground from the drone falling out of the sky in an uncontrolled manner this is not going to be that easy to implement in a safe manner

This announcement kinda feels a bit Nikonish but of course there would have to be at lease one more announcement of an announcement for that to be confirmed

This would have been good at the beginning of DSLR's but now? what's the point you can buy an older 6,8 10mp APS-C DSLR for less that $100 back easily
you can even get a full frame original 5d for about $300 sorry just don't see the need for it but to each his own

GabrielZ: That drop-in filter capability is a brilliant touch and incredibly useful for new users of this camera with legacy Canon glass, Nikon should do the same for their Z series.

Yep I am envious I so want a drop in filter for a Canon EF to Sony E adapter

MisterBG: How do you rotate a "drop-in" CPL and view the results as you rotate it?

looks like there is a dial on the drop-in for rotating a filter

Wow remember when everyone was complaining about having large lenses on small mirrorless bodies (ie sony's) and here canon releases a 1430g 28-70 f2 and I thought my 15-30mm tamron was massive on my A7II (which it is btw) but this puts that to shame for massive lens on a mirrorless

Hautedawg: When this was announced I was worried that I just bought an a7iii and I would miss out on something special. Thank you nikon for releasing this mediocre attempt and reassuring us for choosing Sony.

let alone if this is nikons best attempt at bringing back some of the sony jumpers like myself sorry nikon you just blew it there is nothing in either of these cameras that even peaks my interest in the least
Nikon can you please explain again why exactly should I go back?

In reply to:

Rigucci: It will be wise for Nikon to create an adapter that all of its customers around the World could use their existing lenses. I think this will be a very desirable factor in selling the new mirror-less body. The adapter also doesn't have to be too expensive, say maybe around $150 dollars?

I would also like to see that the LCD to have the flexibility of not only allowing a horizontal pull out but also a vertical adjustment where a person can use the camera body vertically and manipulate the screen that way. All the rest like sensor wise what they put on the D-850 should suffice for taking excellent images. And of course the price of the new body should compete with other manufacturers.

Once the body is out for a while then new lenses could be introduced for the new mirror-less body. If Nikon listens to their customers it will benefit both parties to enjoy the new creation. (One more thing, please Nikon allow for CF cards to be used with the new body?)

that's crap if they want to retain existing users they need to include the adapter with the camera

Aaron801: Damn, I'm surprised that the Sony is so expensive. It might be a pretty nice camera, but it's been out for years at this point and it seems to me that the price is higher than it's been in the past... Shouldn't these things get cheaper the longer that they they've been out on the market?

only if you are still buying it new you can get a good used low shutter count one for easily under 400 now days
