bogdescu: I forgot one crucial question:
If someone gives you an USB drive, where do you stick it?
Right into Apple's innovative ports?
Just asking.

It´s like people complaining that there are no CD/DVD drives anymore in many computers, well that is because people are using USB instead.

Now people start to complain about lack of USB-A, well that is because there is an better usb-c standard that is making it´s way into the machines.

Someone had to be the first to implement "all ports " as USB-C and it was Apple, the rest will follow, so just gt an adapter and deal with it, you will at least have the possibility then to use older stuff for a while more.

In reply to:

duchamp: Interestingly, most pictures if not all were not made with Nikon lenses. I don't get why would Nikon make such a competition if they don't produce neither lenses with more than a life size magnification nor bellows.

They were probably taken with Nikon microscopes, that is a kind of lens as well if you attach the camera to it.

On article Teardown reveals Sony image sensors in iPhone 7 (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

cosinaphile: from forbes..

"But two nasty surprises have been discovered which may cause owners of the iPhone 7 to regret their purchase…
Apple has ditched its premium sapphire glass both the new home button & lens:

The revelation comes after JerryRigEverything used tools to determine makeup of surfaces on the Mohs’ scale of mineral hardness. Previously his tests on the iPhone 6S confirmed the presence of sapphire, but this time both the new home button and larger camera of the iPhone 7 scratched easily using picks that do not damage sapphire.
He concludes: “we know for sure that it is regular glass and not sapphire.”

And here’s where it gets interesting, Apple still advertises that both the iPhone 7 &iPhone 7 Plus as using sapphire ( considerably more expensive than toughened glass) on the home button & camera lens. Given the new iPhones are marketed as more durable than ever this would be a major let down. I have put these claims to Apple will update when/if the company responds."

HenryDJP, maybe not, but it could build up to an class action/lawsuit where people might say their phones "glass" has been scratched to easily while it was advertised as sapphire, but turned out to be glass.

wgravesphoto: Glad to see Adobe is on top of new phone releases... But not the 5D Mark IV....

The beta release cycle for iOS 10 has been ongoing for a long time. I have been part of it since beta 1.
Maybe that is not the case for the new cameras that are released from different brands.

JoachimStrobel: The sensor specs for all sensors except IPhone 7/7s indicate that they only can capture in sRGB.

I guess that is only true for Jpg format.

Chris Noble: These two photos are clearly a stride apart, not shot at "nearly identical" times as your writer suggests. You can see that the runner in blue in the back has moved significantly relative to the pack.

Karroly, With my 8 fps in my D300, i have no problems shooting of a series of photos of horses running and get the very same positions of the horses legs.
It is all about timing. You can also see the white light (as an while line) in the background. It has moved between the shots, also the sand in the background that is used for long jumps (i guess) have moved.

They are probably just timed with the movements of the runners positioning.

On article Throwback Thursday: when studio lenses retire (202 comments in total)

My 50mm f1/8D feels nicer to use than my 50mm f1/4G lens. I like that mechanical sound and it also feels that the f1/8D focuses faster than then f1/4G on my D300.

Tieu Ngao: I'm still debating on when I should buy a 4K TV because:
- OLED 4K is currently the best but it's still expensive and the blue pixel longevity is still an issue,
- 4K materials are scarce and expensive, 4K streaming requires higher speed of internet, and other accessories need to be upgraded,
- HDR is not standardized
- don't know what to do with my old collections of DVD and Blu-ray.

Old DVD ad Blu-Ray collection will not stop working because you get an 4K TV...

Wow, that one is quite cool. I wonder about possible ways of attaching it to your body, such as we do with GoPro:s?

Couscousdelight: usb2 in 2015 ?
Seriously Nikon ?

ewelch: So you are done with nikon because they are releasing an camera wit h specs you do not like. Does the introduction of this new camera autmatically make you take bad picturs with you existing gear? What about the day you would buy one of those new cameras such as the D7200, would you automatically start to take bad images because of that?
People are acting quite strange in here, almost every new camera released is often better than previous generation, still we complain about the cameras.

Is it that you envy peoply using other brands wher they might have some high tech cool feature that makes you feel smaller?

M Jesper: I'm European, what's a 5lbs? ^.^

@Edmond Stuart.
Most (almost all) european countries use the metric system, so the question is not that stupid.

This image is for me quite funny but very valid as well when it comes to Imperial system vs Metric.

Wally Brooks: Nikon did the "Next Big Thing" promotion several years ago too. The next big thing-Lower Case Intentional-that was announced was; nikon is the next big thing. Lower Case Intentional.

Note to senior management at chikon Lower Case Inentional......

Is anybody home?

Can you stop with the non sense of writing "Lower Case Intentional", it makes it easier to read your post(s).

"Also the fact that we brought video to the DSLR world..."

Wasn´t it Nikon who came with the first DSLR with video when they released the D90?

In reply to:

Bitpimps: Interesting comments from the nikon guy, I do not see the need for a lense specifically designed for DX camera body. I'm no engineer or expert but it seems to me that a lense designed for a high performance FX camera should at least in theory perform just as well if not better on a DX body. My FX lenses work great on my D7k so I base my assumptions on those.
I agree with the comment about remove flash from pro bodies, they could make better use of the electronics space occupied to add wifi or Gig-E port or something, IDK. No questions asked about usability optimization, MENU SYSEMS! They are such a pain and are not configurable by the user to only show, what I actually need to access the most quickly. Nikon's idea of 14 submenu's deep or something to access stuff is maddening.

What i would like to see is an addition to the rmote flash functionality and make it go over radio also (have both for backward compatibility), not only lightbased.
There are plenty of situations where flashes are hidden behind walls or stuff and the CLS system cannot trigger the remote flash. There are lots of 3:rd part products to handle radio triggering, but having it in camera would be nice.

The CLS is awesome, i

On article Nikon D750 Review (2011 comments in total)
In reply to:

jjlmoose: Had the D750 for a couple months now...this review doesn't even do this camera the justice it deserves. Having shot with the D70, D90, D7000, D7100, D300, D700, D3 and D800E I've witnessed the evolution of the DX and FX lines and the improvement of the sensors with each new model. With the amount of information that can be extracted from the D750s RAW files, it really is in a class of its own in that I've never seen a larger singular improvement. Other features like an orientation sensor that senses whether you're shooting in landscape or portrait mode and remembers and automatically changes your focus point for each, customizable auto ISO with a focal length dependent min shutter speed, being able to set the OK button to snap to a 100% crop of your chosen focus point all help to make this one of the best cameras I've owned. Great Job, Nikon.

Yes jjlmoose, even on my older D300 it zooms to 100% witht he focus point centered when zoomed, doesn´t matter if it is the middle or any of the outer points, the zoom is taken to the focus point area.

In reply to:

Jun2: cloud means you have to rent software and data storage space, then they will study your files to figure out ways to make more money out of you.

Leandros - So you are saying that changin gdefault setting form "iCloud" storage to local storage is "extra work", when developing ONE image takes more time, talk about making an elephant out of an ant in that case.
Also, if you are so scared about what is going through your network, then you should abandon all Adobe softwares (absolutely CC versions), Microsoft 365 or any other rental software.
Also, your OS, may it be microsoft or apple are communicating thorugh the network a lot to chek for updates and stuff like that, do you know what is included in those packages?

I mean, there has to be an limit of what is reasonable paranoia and not.

If you worry to much, install a firewall that monitors your outbound and inbound traffic and stop what is not allowed.
