bmwzimmer: Interesting... This should some of the heat out of the AXXXX Series bodies so it might be able to record 4K longer

The problem is the sensor heating up not the batteries.

In reply to:

naththo: Nope! Better upgrade as an APS-C Sensor camera from D7200 to D500 if you want better one.

yeah this model looks to be a jump from 5XXX series rather

In reply to:

ewitte12: It should have been released as a D5700 and a few hundred $ over the 5600.

Probably right. The features doesn't commensurate the number designation.
I think they're finding it harder to keep the D3xxx, D5xxx, D7xxx & Dxxx markets separate.

Potemkin_Photo: everybody just wait until canikon release serious crop and FF bodies in about 2-3 years. No need to buy from either until then. It'll take about that long for them to get it right. Until then... move along now, nothing to see here folks.

I thought the D500 and D5 are really serious.
I expect D500x/D500a etc in the short term.

Not sure about Canon camp.

Lack of AF- ON is the deal breaker.

In reply to:

basshead: What's the crop on 4k?

That had me for a loop for a minute. I thought this was an FX cam and it was cropped for the 4K.

So this is an APSC camera that will have a 1.5X crop for its 4k video on it's already cropped sensor. LOL

In reply to:

VadymA: I left a comment yesterday that “people don’t buy DSLR’s anymore” and many readers took it way too literally throwing all sorts of stones at me. I don’t blame them, but nevertheless would like to clarify my point. While D7500 looks like a perfect upgrade for my D300, I was quite disappointed to see this announcement knowing how deep in financial trouble Nikon is. Of course people still buy DSLR’s, but not nearly in enough volumes to make it a viable business. This was always the case, even 15-20 years ago we always heard that the real money are made by both C&N predominantly in P&S market. Now that this market is almost completely taken over by phones, and a big chunk of DSLR market is bitten off by mirrorless and large-sensor compacts, it is disappointing to see that Nikon is not fighting back to regain at least a fraction of that piece of pie. So my comment was mostly tongue-in-cheek pointing to Nikon’s ignorance of other sectors of ever shrinking camera market, that's it.

put it down to #alternativefacts

BBQue: Daniel Berehulak shows clearly great work. But the HDR look he gives to his photos make it look more like something out of a video game. Without this artificial processing, the images would have even more impact in my opinion. Anyone else noticed this?

There is a measure of colour processing but I don't think it's anything close to the kind seen when you google 'hdr photos'.

I see sharpening, lifting of shadows, desaturation and some spot colour treatment.

Lightgreen: Apple's always been about giving the customer what they want, before they want it, in Jobs' own words.

This is a case, one that's become more common, of Apple giving us (Pros) something we don't want before we want it (Macbook Pro that isn't Pro, and Mac Pro that isn't pro).

Now would Jobs have admitted it? Dunno. He tried the Mac mini way before it was a success, and then tried again later, to a success. Same with the Apple TV too I suppose...

at first you don't succeed...

HeyItsJoel: God, I miss Steve Jobs. He's like Simon Cowell on American Idol. He's a first class jerk but he knows his ****.

Yeah- the market stagnated with 27" for awhile. Why isn't 30" back or even bigger 34"-38"?

dennis tennis: To be anti-Apple, is almost as treasonous as being anti-Trump. Nothing Trump doesn't is less than perfection. Nothing Apple does is slightly less great than what Trump would have done had he could spare 5 minutes per day to run Apple instead of Making America Great Again!

lets not compare apples to oranges here.

G1Houston: This is what Thom Hagan has to say about this, that this is:
"1. An apology from Apple for the pause in the Mac Pro development.
2. Acknowledgement by Apple that they've heard their customer.
3. Acknowledgement by Apple that they haven't changed course.
4. Acknowledgement by Apple that they are working on the products customers want, with a bit of the game plan disclosed, but no details.
5. Disclosure by Apple that they understand who makes up their audience.
6. Willingness by Apple to share the above with a key group of reporters/bloggers who write for the Macintosh audience.
7. Willingness by Apple to answer general questions about the future that don't get to level of details about any upcoming products.
...
In one 90-minute session, Apple essentially corrected their key customer [product], and removed any stress I have about where they're going. I suspect others who had been wondering if they needed to move from Apple to Windows are relieved, too."

let alone to say that I agree.

Well rounded off comments. Some assurance there.

I was looking at my options at this point as my mbpr is at the 4 year mark now.

yeah.

It's really good for close ups as with the dog and girl in safety glasses, but those with small bits like the sakura flowers of leaves look busy.

Spotted one at f3.5.

The F 1.8 ones are desirable.
