BobT3218: Up-ressing is simple enough but recognising what something should look like and correcting it is where the AI comes in. AI is only as good as the size of its knowledge database and algorithms. Adobe's knowledge database can only grow but as it grows, accessing it becomes increasingly difficult.

The AI would have to be cloud based in future.

This is the future of digital photography. The problem is camera companies can't make any money off of it and software companies won't be able to charge that much for it.

Phone companies are a huge market, more people have phones than digital cameras.

With enough time, this process will surpass any gains made in increasing sensor pixels.

errebe: Just another gadget that has nothing to do at all with true photography...

The wet plate people probably said the same thing about film when it was first introduced.

dellaaa: The wheels differ from shot to shot, in the shot from underneath the wheels have straight threads, in the others the threads are angles and in some the angled threads are missing pieces.

Can someone explain this?

I never do, why start now :)

dellaaa: Seems like a lot of effort to go through for such mediocre results. Honestly, the image quality is dreadful, soft contrasty lacking detail. I still don't see the point of shooting film of any type in 2020. I guess I'm just not woke enough. All I can say is thank god for my digital cameras.

I shot film for many years, had a B&W darkroom. I agree, a fiber based B&W image is a wonderful thing. I agree lasrejet output is kind of sterile (but then again so were color in those days), but that aside, the quality of the image (resolution, grain contrast range, high iso) from digital cameras, not the final print, is something film strived to produce but only produced with very large format equipment.

Are they sure it's just not dust on the lens :)

Did anyone at all proof this before you posted. Somebody is looking for free equipment :)

Maybe you should refrain from telling other people to refrain. Is that a double negative?

I have a NEX7 which I loath, so I am not a Sony Fboy, but ergonomics aside if the the Sony was the camera Nikon produced I would have pre ordered it.

The more I read these posts the less I like everything about cameras. :(

Full disclosure, I'm not a fan of the D850. In my mind its a wonderful camera that could have been phenomenal had it been mirrorless, adding IBIS and pixel shift (oh no it sounds like a Sony that just came out).

IMHO, SLRs are on life support, no make that a morphine drip. The quicker we put them out of their misery, the better. They shoot horses don't they?

Honestly no, I stopped at the "I don't own one (even though I'd like to), and I've barely used it" part. I will go back and read. My apologies in advance if I am out of order.

This guy is a joke, his rectangle at most hit two of the line on the image

You seem to be lumping the mount in with the focus technology, are they inextricably linked? Could Nikon keep the current 'mount' allowing the use of existing lenses and for new lenses use the existing mount but upgrade the focusing technology? I think they do this for backwards compatibility with Nikon lenses that have the older drive motors.

mr moonlight: I know this is just the Beta version of the software, but wow! Image quality on the Xpro1 looks like it blows the other cameras out of the water at all ISO's

Despite all the fanboy clamor and pants wetting, the images that this camera produces are mediocre. I was waiting for this test and it proved my point.

But talk to a fan boy and their copy of the camera produces 'stunning' images, color nuances that we mere mortals can't see, please....

I think the Fuji flavor of fanboy seems to be the strongest and most offensive of the lot these days. I am just saying.

(unknown member): What an ugly camera. And way too expensive for what you get. I think $133 is a fair price. And why aren't there any sample pictures of hot blonde girls dancing in dark night clubs? I mean, without that particular shot how in the world can we tell how good this mid-20th century radio....I mean camera really is? It looks like the upper left corner is 1/8th stop darker than the bottom right corner. :) LOL Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Looks like a fascinating camera. I wonder if people will insist the AF speed of this camera match other $1,700 cameras.

Very confused, why didn't DPReview take their standard cheezy studio shot?

Without side by side comparisons as in Image Resources, it is with out question impossible to asses the abilities of a piece of photographic equipment. I believe that's the rational behind standard test charts.

Nothing to learn about the image quality here.

Really, why wasn't the standard studio shot taken????

Lando79: Hey guy’s I’ve been reading your comments on this Camera. It seems there are quite a few of you are disappointed about the D4. It seems to be on the basis of Image Resolution and FPS. Think about what the pros want i.e. the journalists and sports photographers. If I was one, then I would certainly welcome the increased sensitivity to capture images at low light and low resolution… Imagine being abroad in a war zone, the last thing you’re thinking about is sharpness and image details – it’s all about capturing the story. Also, think about uploading a 26 megapixel vs. 16 megapixel image via satellite or 3g connection. It could mean an extra minute to transfer, and if your sports or news shot isn’t sent to the editor on time without hassle – its money lost. This camera makes sense to the pros not us hobbyist.
The camera is more focused about the work flow and post productivity that allow photographers who work in fast paced environments. How many of you were willing to spend £4.5k anyway.

I don't shoot sports or weddings, this to me was a non event.
