US government should buy all the rejected cameras. How many D600s is needed to replace all the oil US imports (10-12 million barrels a day)?

yihlee: Nikon had it coming, can't blame nobody but itself. I think Nikon is lucky that Chinese government didn't force a full scale return and refund.

Next time they will nationalize Nikon's Chinese factories. ;)

On article Nikon D4s and Lexar 400x or 1000x memory card problems (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Greg VdB: Would be interesting to know what exactly causes the problem, why only some cards are affected, and why the problem surfaced (or was recognized) only when used in the D4s...

Nikon firmware is known to break 3rd party things... Just ask Sigma, or battery makers. And it is never Nikon which fixes it.

On article Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

h2k: Please post a E-M10 camera guide with recommended settings and modes of use!

You did this in the past with at least one Oly camera. In this review you mention repeatedly the E-M10's complicatedness and i personally have found Oly menus and manuals nauseatingly complicated, with some information even lost in translation in anyway unintuitive, clumsy manuals and menus (while the camera itself does remain quite attractive).

So "DPR's Guide to Setting up the E-M10 Usefully" would be very welcome!

Thanks!

PS.
I'd prefer a written "Guide to Setting up the E-M10 Usefully" very much over a video.

Look in Micro Four Thirds forum, under E-M5. ;)

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: The E-PM2 seems to stack up well against this camera when you consider the price. The E-PM2 can be had for less than $400 with two lenses. The E-M10 has wireless and some other really nice features. However, it is much more expensive as well.

E-PM2 is really in different class: controls and EVF and even tilting screen, and of course price. No DSLR even exist in this class because of OVF. NX2000 and NEX-3 and GF6/GM1 can be compared.

Comparison to X-M1 is just awkward. In all respects E-M10 is a direct competitor of X-E2, and should be compared accordingly (including viewfinder size). t5i and D5300 are the same class.

"E-M10 Video Modes
Image comparison tool"

How to access actual comparison, between different cameras that is?

Still nobody will bother. A basic plastic android phone can be bought for $60 with delivery from China.

No trips to Hungary for me and my family unless the law is rescinded or exception for tourists is created.

In reply to:

peevee1: "But then again, this is a model with an optional viewfinder so that people who don't want a viewfinder don't have to pay for it, that Nikon US plans only to sell in bundles with the viewfinder. At which point, I'm beginning to wonder whether any of this makes sense."

Here is the sense for you. Markets are different. Asia likes their small, viewfinderless form factor. They got it. US likes their bigger, DSLR-like form factor. We got it too (with EVF and grip on). And Nikon saved a bunch of money in fixed costs designing and preparing for mass production only 1 model of this class instead of 2 (unlike, say, Olympus with both E-P5 which does not sell well in the US and E-M10 which should sell better). And then they saved fixed costs in the low-volume (for mirrorless) US again shipping (and of course marketing etc) only one kit instead of several different kits. And for low volumes fixed costs is all that matters.

It is overpriced of course. But they are in the business of making money. Fans or simply ignorant customers (the kind who think "Nikon makes better cameras than Sony", without knowing details etc), will pay. And then they have a huge margin to lower their prices to lure more customers, those who were priced out before.

Business tricks like this is why they make money and Sony does not.
