There are couple of other companies who are making this product. For anyone who is interested. I'm still evaluating the options, as I want to invest in couple of units.

this is insane! I'm really jealous and envious of this guy for pushing the limits each time he takes a new photo. Bravo!

the worst kept product launch secret in recent history.

GoPro is not innovating on this space anymore. It's difficult to build a drone and a action cam for a small company. There is nothing innovative or propriety with this product. At this point, Sony seems to have more innovation in this space.

LOL! 32% is a joke. I guess the days of the Moore's law are over. Most NLEs are moving to GPU optimization anyways, and Intel using this number as a headliner, shows how bad their innovation cycles has become.

On article Throwback Thursday: the Canon PowerShot G1 (157 comments in total)

this was a great camera! I remember my friend buying one just before G2 was released and I was telling him he should wait. He said he rather enjoy the camera now. Little did I know this anticipation of the next camera version was going to grapple all of us forever.

"printomatic" sounds problematic.

The 5-axis + 4k video (100 mb/s) + $650 price range makes this something I want to buy for doing 4K video work. Just need to wait and see if the video engine is improved as I hear that Oly video images are very much baked in.

The price point is great. This is a niche product and for a niche product, the pricing is actually very reasonable.

BTW, my Cyrillic is not that good. But to me, the name is "TIP-D" not "TYPE-D"

semorg: Canon is again falling behind. The in-camera stabilization out of Olympus or even Panasonic mirrorless are so good that make those cameras far more useful than this nikon.
With the 5-axis stabilization out of Olympus you can shoot handheld videos that does not want to make you vomit after watching a clip for 2-3 seconds. Unfortunately this is not really true about canon.

Yes, the Dual Pixel AF is the best in the market. But what is the point of shooting video on a small camera that could only be useful on a gimbal or a tripod?

I'm sure some Vlogers would love this camera, but how many of them are out there, vs ordinary people who want to shoot a birthday video and wanting to make it look smooth. My iPhone 6s+ with stabilization shoots amazing videos handheld in 4K! I believe it even has a higher bitrate than this canon.

CCD FTW - just take this quote from this article, "The stabilization in the Olympus meant that I was just handholding the camera most of the time with only a top handle and a cage"

@Zdman - looks what coming just around the corner. With 3X more video data than this canon. 4K video grabs are great for many people. Like parents shooting their child soccer game, etc. It's enough resolution for a decent size print, etc.

CCD FTW - show me something that is not? Slightest camera movement, walking, etc. makes the videos possible to watch more than 20-30 seconds. Maybe you're not susceptible to motion sickness, but many are.

@zdman - seriously?

And this is before the new cameras that are going to be announced in the next few weeks

I do watch film or TV...but I also watch behind the scene. All those stuff are shot on dollies, rails, steady cam or tripod heads.
The IS in lens counts, but in good daylights it makes the iPhone as good as a camera as the canon. Except less bulky and even in 4k if you have a 4k screen.

semorg: the D800e switched me over from Canon to Nikon. I think the D850 will convert more canon users on the fence to the nikon side.
This camera is worthy of Nikon's 100 year anniversary and it's currently the king of all DSLRs.

@vscd
I could never pull this kind of tones out of the Canon: https://www.eyeem.com/p/109717441

@vscd we're talking specifically about some canon shooters who are on the fence. The ability to pull so much details from shadows make the Nikon a very powerful tool.
I didn't leave my D810 for the current line of MF, because I shoot most landscape and I like 3:2 or even wider crops and if you apply a 3:2 crop to MF cameras you wont get much more image than you get from the D810. So it makes no sense.

Nikonandmore: :
I am VERY happy to see Nikon finally come out with a new product worth their name, know-how and reputation.. none of that 100th Anniversary Products crap please! This is like a smaller D5 with higher resolution and much lower price and compact design.. a great camera, awesome features and a major step forward for Nikon.. it's about time!

NOW A REALITY CHECK:
When Sony releases an updated a7RIII and later on an a9II, it will eat this thing for breakfast, burp it for lunch and s..t it for dinner!

@Nikonandmore
and I'm a buyer who is eagerly awaiting the next update to the sony cameras. I like them for the size and shooting videos. The handheld gimbals are hard with a full DSLRs. So I'm awaiting for the A6500 (I shoot with A6000 now) replacement or the A7rIII replacement as a travel/video camera on the gimbal.

@Nikonandmore - this blind test concept does not work in this example. Blind tests work for coke vs pepsi, since there is a consistent formula that they follow, so the test is really repeatable. This 100 photo idea has so many variations that make this test completely random.

Nikon's image IQ especially with DR is still worlds ahead of Canon. I don't find myself using graduated ND as much anymore or rarely need to shoot anything in HDR more.
With the D850, you almost need to buy two different Canon cameras to get the same type of functionality and capabilities and you still wont get the same image quality. I was using Canon from the EOS 5 (film days) till 5D II (which disappointed me with all of its banding issues)

HowaboutRAW: gorllu:

One can shoot the D5 at ISO 50,000 easily. Not this.

The D5 likely still has a much brighter viewfinder.

The button control/access on the D5 is better, simply because there are more.

Nikon says D850 has their brightest viewfinder of all their DSLRs ever
