jay jay02: A nice gallery, but NOT impressed by image quality.

@jay jay02: all the images in this sample gallery are OOC jpegs, which hardly can show high DR. Usually the jpeg engines are optimized to show around 8.3 stops of DR which is not ideal for high DR scenes and not enough to show difference of DR between cameras.

Best for selfies?

Copal Fit: I downsize all my photos which I post on any social networks to 1500 pixels on the widest side anyway. And I include a watermark. All for obvious reasons.

I downsize all my photos to 2100 pixels on the long side.

janist74: My Galaxy S8 has no such issues....

@PhotoFactor: S8 usually is displayed in stores with "Adaptive Display" mode, which is the oversaturated mode described above by the TrojMacReady. In "Adaptive Display" mode, the white point of the display is around 7500 kelvin (unlike sRGB's and Adobe RGB's 6500 kelvin white point). So the display is not blue shifted, it is blue by design in adaptive display/ oversaturated mode.

"93%DCI-P3". As DCI-P3 is designed mainly for projectors, it seems that it is very hard to cover the entire DCI-P3 in a monitor.

Isn't it ironic that the sample photos of this new 42.2 MP camera are shown in 1MP?

If possible, please do an article about the 24mm f2.8 IS.

Does "HDR display" mean display with high contrast ratio? Personally I think any display which has more than 256:1 contrast ratio is going to give very wrong idea about how the photos will actually look in prints. Though for watching movies, 2000:1 is ideal.

Also note that many Samsung mobile phones like S8 offers an "OLED Photo" display mode which is calibrated to Adobe RGB.

justnuaces: Am I the only one who doesn't see a real game changer here?
D700 was "the" camera at its time, now is a Sony A7 III or A9.

This one is a good camera, probably the last of its kind. But the pixel count is way too high for many works, and the lack of EVF is a thing, in 2017.

I've nothing to say against this D850, it's a really good camera, but all those hypes are exaggerated.

D700 lacked dual card slot and had 95% viewfinder coverage. Otherwise it was a great camera for that time.

Well, I used to think that Nikon with it's so many levels of D-Lighting and auto option is superior to Canon's ALO with three levels and no auto option. But now after seeing these photos it seems that 'Auto' D-Lighting is not very intelligent, and may be not better than
Canon's ALO.

J A C S: "...half the values in your Raw file (the values between 2048 and 4096 in a 12-bit Raw file) are devoted to the brightest stop of light you captured."

Half of the values is just one bit in the data, roughly speaking. To accommodate that extra bit, the RAW file needs to be just 1/14 or so larger, assuming the same step.

Also, I am not so sure about this statement: "In a typical out-of-camera JPEG rendering, the first ~3.5EV are captured above middle grey, and the first three of these stops of highlights have used up 7/8th of your Raw file."

That statement is correct. 1st EV occupies 50% of the file, 2nd one 25%, 3rd one 12.5%. So total = 87.5%. 7/8 = .875 =87.5% .

KLO82: I may be minority here (or may be the only person), but if I were a Nikon user and could afford this camera, my only reservation would be so many megapixels. I do not need this many pixels, even my 20MP 6D is filling my hard disk at a very high rate without giving anything that is really useful to me.

@GodSpeaks: I could use every other advantage/ feature this camera offers, except for the mega pixels. So in a sense I am also target market.

KLO82: Entry level performance for professional level money. (copied from someone's comment in Facebook)

If you are using their camera models for professionals like 5DIII/IV/S/ S R, 7DII or 1D line, there is no reason to be upset, those are truly excellent DSLRs for still photography. But their non professional models which are actively crippled are the problems.

"Our main criticism with the handling of both the 6D II (and the 80D, for that matter) concerns the rear dial and multi controller. The dial itself is fine, but the eight-way controller is a disaster." - this is my experience with 6D too. They made the multi controller intentionally crippled. I can almost never select the corner points by pressing the corner/ diagonal buttons on 6D. And the selection algorithm is flawed (or most likely intentionally crippled) too. My main reason for not choosing a 6DII is lack of AF joystick. Specially with so many AF points lack of joystick is a disaster - it will slow down the selection of AF points even more than original 6D.
