There is no need for negative talk. Comparing cell phone camera with a camera is plain silly.
IPhone is improving the camera every generation. If you are truly a photographer, you would know that it would never gets there with larger sensor camera. It is going to lag behind no matter what. It is very simple. Look at the depth of this device and its lens size. It is just common sense.

On article Nikon's official D850 lens recommendation list (297 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eliot Kramer: No offense but this is completely meaningless list without any merit or value.
It is nothing more than a plug for Nikon. Here are the lenses we make. Buy them for your new Nikon camera. The end. Why not just include a link to their lens product page and people can just buy any of them and it would end up being the same.

This is not a comparison of value as measured by any standard where one product is better than another so it does not present any useful information. Pure foolishness and waste of time.

It is list of the lenses that do best with such high megapixel camera.

Nikon would better bring the new versions of the unlisted lenses before I change brand!

caspianm: Great camera poor photography. Auto picture profile, Auto iso, motion blur and possibly lenses not fine tuned.

I'm not in the market. It only showed what this camera can do WHEN you choose auto iso, and auto pic profile with mostly over saturated color, over the top contrast and inaccurate color, and way unsharpened images as a result. The lens had not had auto tuned and the shooter unsteady hand showed in a good number of photos. Who cares I'm going home.

I see motion blur in some. Why would anyone take a landscape shot in broad daylight in higher iso than than native is beyond me. What does that represent for a camera of this class?! Please explain!

On article Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue (175 comments in total)
In reply to:

Boky: Truly unbelievable.... one of well-known Japanese companies that should pride on implementing Lean Manufacturing Principles, where quality is built into the product; NOT inspected and checked for at the end of manufacturing when the product is produced.(Actually, was there any quality control of any kind in case of D600 manufacturing???)

Furthermore, denials for more than a year about the issue, and the latest announcement that the shutter will be replaced if NECESSARY (*determined by whom? Nikon? they already stated for more than a year the problem did not exist!!!) are all just adding to total hypocrisy, and all that coming from a Japanese company?

The future is bleak indeed... how can a consumer possibly expect to buy a quality product these days?

Nick

Nikon was quiet but never denied the issue. Most who sent their units in were given free service. It takes time for most companies to admit publically. Now the owners can get their units straightened out. Only safety related issues get a recall.

On article Nikon Df Review (1620 comments in total)
In reply to:

km25: I the AF really that bad in low light? If it is why have camera that is good in low light? I think the camera is over priced by a lot. A split image on the focusing screen is really needed with the older lens, as a matter of fact interchangeable would be best. The camera has too may problems to be corrected by firmware.

I like the idea, maybe Df ll. 20MP, better AF, interchg. focusing screens and a grip.
And all the stuff in the review to bad.

Is this camera silver, gold or what?

@R Butler, a second copy should have been attempted already before publishing the AF weakness and ditching the camera as a result. Why rush your work?!

Lee Jay: Is there some way to take some text and make it show as quoted text as you could before with > or > > etc.? If I break into a quoted paragraph, the text after the break loses the quotation lines and I can't figure a way to put them back.

Why it dosn't keep the previously view threads history( by highlighting them). Never seen any forum without this feature.

Patco: "Nikon films latest D5100 advert..."
It seems odd that the term "film" is still so often used to describe digital imaging.

Unless it is finalized in film medium which I doubt but possible.

ybizzle: The 35 and 33 models are clearly better than this. Sony keeps downgrading this model to cut costs. A 2.6" 230K dot screen? Come on Sony, this isn't 2008...

Live view cont. focus is what SLT all about..Then Sony offers a smaller screen!! Shooting self in foot..
