Negative287: Meh... If they want to impress me, release an F3 Digital with Split Prism Focusing Screen and Conservative Metering for $500! Then throw in a 50 F/2 with Aperture Ring and Metal body.

Or a DSLR that can actually focus while shooting video.

mcshan: A Pin Collection! Yes! Ask and you shall receive. Our dreams have been answered!

30 years ago when I bought my first Nikon camera, I said "I hope when Nikon celebrates their 100th anniversary they make a commemorative pin collection."

eliehbk: Maybe Nikon should celebrate by finally releasing a decent mirror less camera before it's too late!

It's already too late.

jkokich: If you went to someone who knew nothing of the history of photography, and showed them two designs, one for a mirror system, with its complexity, and the other mirrorless, there would be no contest. Why have something so much more complicated? Now, I appreciate mechanical things, but the limitations of the mirror system place it firmly in the "yes, amazing, but things evolve" category.

Until they learned what bokeh is.

PieterB: I think by now, a larger part of the potential new buyers know that mirrorless exist. But most new buyers (not the people that frequent these sites) probably still have no clue what mirrorless is.

Including Nikon.

gskolenda: Personally, They look overexposed and flat looking, I believe there is too much emphasis on pulling detail out of shadows, and this is what happens when that is over used. I prefer more contrast, and a little more color saturation. Nothing against the Sony-RX10 MIII, I have the Sony RX10 MII, I love it! I only have one major complaint, the battery life is super poor! I hate that the batteries drain while in the camera, when the cameras turned off. The video is very good on this camera as I now shoot more video than stills.

Totally agree, other than the fact that there's a zoom, these shots look like they're "everything in focus, all the time, no matter the depth", just like a cell phone.

Dontcha just love all the armchair lawyers and judges in this forum that have all the answers, probably without doing anything other than reading the half-baked summary of the posting?

haylebob: hello,

is there a ready-to-use download version available, i have no idea to build this for windows 10.

I totally agree, like every Google product I've ever used, it's written by kids with no instructions and hard as heck to figure out. Not everyone's a nerd programmer, you'd think if they wanted people to use this they would have made it at least somewhat obvious on how to do it. And as long as I'm on a Google rant, if they'd fix the stupid ads in AdSense, we webmasters wouldn't have to worry about trying to shave a few milliseconds by crushing jpegs or using the totally non-standard AMP HTML...

Problem is, if he invented it, it would only take pictures of himself.

Olivier GALLEN: Suggestion: could you please lower the music level a bit (for your next videos)? It would balance better with the voice level and make a more pleasing video overall.
PS: thanks for this first look itself, of course.
PS2: I mention it because I noticed the same issue on many of your previous videos as well.

I'll go one further: who needs crummy music in the background? Voice only please, just the facts. Music is always distracting.

UPDATE: Nikon to cancel all digital cameras and return to film. Story at 11.

On article Sigma releases price and availability for sd Quattro H (370 comments in total)

I like it, finally a break from yet another "look at me, I'm a 1950's retro" camera. Sigma will sell many fewer of these than the other manufacturers, thus the higher price. I'd like to rent one to try and maybe buy if I liked it.

On article Nikon D5600 DSLR announced, though not in the US (297 comments in total)

I'm curious about SnapBridge though, I know nothing about it. On other non-Bluetooth Nikon cameras, like my D7100 and D610, is there a Bluetooth SD card or some type of snap-on device that gives me the same capability? Or do you have to own a camera with the SnapBridge connection already installed?

Photos look like they came out of a cell phone with a tiny sensor. Oh, wait -- they did.

You mean National Geographic is still a magazine? And people still buy it? Who knew...
