On article Shooting experience: how the Nikon D7500 won me over (192 comments in total)

Thanks for the story. Nikkor 85 mm f/1.8 D is my favorite lens when shooting concerts. Either on my D600 or manually my Fuji X. It is also quite inexpensive!

msamir: It seems to me that the D7500 is sharper and cleaner than the D7200 at high iso.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2017/06/02/nikon-d7500-first-shots-the-d7200-followup-is-here-but-how-will-it-perform

True. On the other hand, D500 seems to be cleaner at ISO 6400. I wonder if they tweak the sensors of these two different way, giving better treatment to D500? Reminds me back in the day of their release of D90 and D300...

In reply to:

Bambi24: All of these shots really could have been made on a smartphone, which tend to be around 28mm equivalent.

They're not demanding on the AF system, nor were they shot in challenging lighting conditions.

I like the shots, it's not that, but they could have been made on any camera or smartphone.

@Bambi24:
Perhaps the best side of the iPhone's photos is the great depth of focus, thanks to its small sensor. Other than that the images are very noisy, the ISO25 shot being cleanest—naturally. ISO 500 and 640 shots are already terrible, lacking details and looking more like water color paintings:

One shouldn't go beyond ISO640 with that cam. My ¢2...

Cheers.

Very good image quality for a smartphone camera. Iso 3200 looks quite horrible, though.

Why no photos of people indoors with higher ISO? That's something we do with the phones. I'd like to see the image quality of those shots.

That second dial on the top looks like on Nikon D600.

In reply to:

Hannu108: “Thanks to the noise reduction, it even punches above its sensor size and price bracket, showing a similar performance to a D750”

I wonder where they got it...

I meant:
Where did the DPReview staff get the idea of KP having similar performance comparable to that of D750?

If you check the image you'll see that ISO 6400 of KP is quite noisy compared with that of D750 and the noise pattern shows ugly artefacts of noise suppression... and that's a RAW file!

It would be a “nifty-fifty” Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D on my D600. Nice angle, wide enough for street and concerts but a bit wide for portraits. The best compromise.

In reply to:

Steve in GA: I have been considering replacing my D7100 with a new Nikon DX body, but after reading your review, the D5600 will not be the one I buy.

And, by the way Nikon, I'm sure there are people who want to share photos from their DSLR instantly, but not me. I have a smartphone for that.

@ Steve in GA -- I know what you mean. I actually did it. I got a 50mm f/1.8 D for about 70 bucks, 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 unstabilized zoom (that Thom Hogan praises) for 150 bucks and a 85mm f/1.8D for $250. I also found a dirty cheap 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5 Cosina for wide angle. I got no tele lenses since I don't really need them.

This is a “poor man’s” set-up but it has served me well. Selling your DX lenses would bring you some cash for stabilized FX lenses...

Why don't get a second hand D600/D610? The step-up in image quality is fantastic. ¢2 from my experience..

You can get a good body for 500 bucks:

In reply to:

endofoto: Nikon, canon and Sony are lagging behind Pentax in every segment of DSLR. Nikon and Sony have serious quality check problems at the construction and dont care about defective units after sale. Canon has poorer sensors and too expensive. I think Pentax has much more specs to offer at the same price and killing these 3 guys.

Having used and owned Pentax K-x and K-01 I can say that lenses are a weak area of Pentax. They seem to be more expensive and not as much available as the Nikon and Canon lenses. I found this a problem for my limited budget. Otherwise, I really liked both of them. They had really great image quality!

ShreedharHegde: I do not understand the need the for this new camera when D5500 is almost new in the market. It would have been great to see more innovation with new releases as too many new names with same specs create lot of chaos in the camera market.
I do not see much differences in the D5000 series after D5200 except D5500 entered with weather proof body. New designs and sizes of DSLR don't sell out like new design smartphones in the market. It needs more innovation along with design to succeed (Like Apple does with every new iPhone (?))

I've read reviews saying that the latest models are faster in operation compared to the older 5000 series models. This especially between D5200 and D5300.

TimelordXYZ: Page 3 states there is a 'pentaprism hump'.

Does the D5600 have a pentaprism OVF or a pentamirror OVF?

It has a pentamirror as the other 5000 series models:

In reply to:

deep7: " For those who wanted an SLR-like camera..." Um, this IS an SLR!! Sony might call it an SLT but it's a single lens reflex camera either way.

Early this year, I bought the very similar E20. What an amazing camera! The feel of it in your hand is a revelation. Very, very few cameras feel this good. It just makes you want to use it all the time. Image quality is pretty decent, though the shadow noise is hard to control. The lens is gorgeous. A glacially slow but utterly charming camera. And you can still buy new batteries easily.

If it ever stops working, I'll just use it as a hammer.

I still have one and it is in impeccable condition. Anyhow, I decided to list it on eBay:

sapporodan: Slightly off topic but regarding the quality of Olympus images.

I found a load of photos I took on my old Olympus E-1, and was shocked to see how beautiful the images still looked, there is a wonderful colour and ‘Pop’ to them. Ok it was only 5mp but wow they look beautiful!

Going back to my modern Olympus (Ok it’s an E-M5) and the images just look more processed and digital and really rather flat :(
People are saying the image quality is great and yes it is, but dam those old Kodak sensors were good!

I want the E-M1 to take pictures like the E-1 :)

yes. Do you remember Fuji S3 Pro. With its SuperCCD sensor you captured beautiful photos. Those CCD colors:

Phillip Lynch: I will never ever never forgive them for killing Aperture,they haven't realize that one software have made a lot of photographer bypass the mac pro.

If I remember right Adobe threatened them to discontinue supporting OS X platform feeling being stepped on their toes by Apple with their photo editing programs. iPhoto got more and more features of Photoshop and Aperture was competing Lightroom. Apple caved in under the pressure from Adobe...

In reply to:

Osa25: Or you could just pick up an NX500 on closeout....and avoid this water-treading masquerading as innovation.

Having used extensively Sony's 16-50 pancake on Nex-F3, Fuji's 16-50 XC on X-A1 & X-M1 and Samsung's 16-50 on NX500 I can say that the Fujinon is the best of them. NX 16-50 is the runner-up being prone to flare and a bit softer. Sony's pancake is sharpish in the centre and lags behind in sharpness. All these lenses suffer from CA.

Just my 2¢s...

Cheers!
