Welcome, Sir!

Nick8: DPR, this poll is an excellent idea.
I see the "High resolution sensor" option, but maybe good dynamic range and good image quality at high ISO settings would have been desirable.
I also think that only 3 choices are limiting for this subject. Maybe 5 or 6 would have been better. There are many things photographers would like in a camera.
Thank you.

And you are a stupid troll.

You do not understand what I was saying.
DPR says in the article you keep telling me to read: "Or, if we've missed anything, mention it in the comments."
I consider the dynamic range and high ISO IQ as important enough to mention and I am not the only one to notice that.
Also, when you have many features to chose from and only 3 choices, that means the more important ones will collect most of the attention and the least important will appear with very low percentage. You end up with inaccurate data.
Now you want to debate "the most important" words for ever? I think those features belong to that category.
Don't try to patronize me just to express your negativity.

I read the article.
Read my comment. "Many things" referred to the number of options, 3 being limiting, genius.

Robert1975: And what's with the "Nikon is too late" story. They were late with FF, and then surpassed Canon.

They always wait others to test new technology and then they do it better... Sony has no chances against Nikon FF MILCs.

Nikon using Sony sensors? They're just using Sony manufacturing facilities which is very different. They have their own sensor designs.

It's all part of the tactics.

@Ebrahim

You said:
"Nikon makes one invisible design change in the paper for them all to legally claim "Nikon Sensors" everywhere on every Camera. They're Sony sensors 100%."

You were wrong.

Nick8: The mount looks relatively large. That is very good.
Exciting times :)

According to PetaPixel:
"The lens mount is large on the front of the camera — it seems unusually big."
This is the link:

Anyway, we'll see the camera very soon. I am sure dpr is playing with one as we speak :)

If we consider the rumored upcoming Nikon PRO mirrorless system, it is making sense for them to officially discontinue the unsuccessful Nikon 1 system.
It was practically discontinued anyway.
It would have just cast a shadow on the new system, which I suppose will be well thought.
Good luck with the new systems to Nikon and Canon!

Nice, useful review.
Happy to see the lens reviews back. Cameras tend to work so much better when you attach lenses to them :)

Sergey Borachev: 24°C is pretty warm? And so the camera overheats? LOL

Camera overheating is good for fishing :)

In reply to:

Nick8: Thanks for the video and for the good news about incoming full lab lens tests.

Correct, I suppose we can expect some sort of continuation of DPR's previous lens tests, probably with some improvements implemented:

As I understood, these DPR tests will come soon, so we have to wait a little more.
Cheers!

Nick8: It was not impossible to make the transition to digital.
Fujifilm succeeded. Kodak did not.

Most photo equipment companies (Sony, Canon, Nikon, even Leica) are diversified.
Just as an example, Leica is making watches:

Fujifilm's transformation was admirable.

On article DPReview TV: A look back at APS film (390 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nick8: If I remember correctly, a good 21 DIN / 100 ASA film was able to produce around 110-115 lpm (lines per millimeter). Rarely you could get 125 lpm. Higher sensitivity films had a lower resolution, due to larger photo-sensitive crystals. Many photographers were using 50 ASA films for resolution only.
A lot of effort was put into films research, both for the film itself and for the chemical process to develop it.
The area of the image on the film was very important, being basically a precious commodity. 110 lpm for a 35mm film translates very roughly into 10MP for a digital camera. The dynamic range was also very restrictive (this applied to all formats, though).
In terms of image quality, the smaller APS film was a major drawback, hence a failure from the start.
35mm cameras were small and convenient enough.
Furthermore, I cannot remember precisely, but I believe that the price of APS was higher per frame than 35mm.

I checked the link. It is good material. Thanks!
Anyway, my point was that the film had a limited resolving power and the larger the frame's area on the film, the better.
Many times cropping was also required.
Our observations are not in disagreement.
Cheers!
