sigh. another colorization trend. no thanks. I don't want to see a film shot in black and white in color. I don't want to see a color photo made in to black and white. and I don't want to see a black and white photo colorized. you can hand color all you want, but it's not the color that was in the scene, it's just some artists imagination.

CameraLabTester: Amazing.

One of the World's most busiest men, and he arrives one minute before schedule.

That's what impacted me from watching the video.

.

Not only on time, but one minute early! Definitely impressive.

MirkoK: how about the batteries in the 787?

those are completely contained within heavy steel boxes. normal luggage is not. big difference.

Would love to see a similar tour of the Nikon Sendai plant (I'm a Nikon guy)

Nikon hit a home run, again, with this one. D750 and D850 reign supreme!

camerosity: Actually a 92% viewfinder. This is the biggest negative for an otherwise amazing camera. One that I still own to this day, though haven't used in nearly a year (Thanksgiving 2016 was the last shoot I did with my D700).

The entire D700 frame is 4256 x 2832 pixels. The viewable area is approximately 4027 x 2670 pixels based on my somewhat rough observation. Therefore, as far as area goes, what is in the viewfinder is actually about 89.2% of the entire frame, and at least on my D700, it is not centered, a bit more is left out on top and on the left side of the frame

lacroix75: With many cameras that I've bought and sold, this is the only camera that I wish I still have...

Still have mine. Seems silly to sell it for only around $700.00 at this point.

dansclic: Many say this body is the last Nikon to have so accurate colors....

Have you tried the Df? It produces outstanding color, better than any other Nikon body I've used yet.

snapa: Some people simply have more money than sense. If you have nothing better to do with $400k then to spend it on an almost useless camera, you have more money than you deserve to have. Will the person who bought it actually use the camera, or just put it on a shelf to admire it? Either way, what a complete waste of money.

There is this thing called appreciation. This is an investment, nothing more. 10 years from now it will be worth considerably more now that the world knows about it.

On article Nikon offers free battery exchange for D500 owners (104 comments in total)

It would be nice if they would offer recalls on all EN-EL15 batteries that qualify, not just for D500 owners. I have quite a few that are like this but I'm just a D810 owner.

In reply to:

2eyesee: How about a poll? Which camera would you like to see DPR review first?

And another: How many hours sleep are DPR staff allowed each night until all three cameras are reviewed?

Definitely a built in EVF would push me to buying the DL 18-50 right away. But again, like the failed V3, the viewfinder being an add on, very fragile item, make me pause. The V1 was the genesis of what could have been a brilliant line of cameras. But they chickened out and made the V2, which was boring, and the V3, which was simply bizarre (Micro SD cards? wtf?!). Sorry Nikon, your marketing department is still rather confused. You can't make a premium compact with a superb N lens, and leave the viewfinder off. Pros don't shoot with the camera held out in front of them. Even the tiny Rollei 35 has a viewfinder on it, for chrissakes!

On article Nikon's New D5 and D500 Push the Boundaries of DSLR (719 comments in total)

Glad to see Nikon release both of these cameras. The D500 looks very exciting and may bring some FX shooters back to DX, as the D500 seems to eclipse the D750 in many areas for just $150 more.

Good artists copy, great artists steal. This has always and will always be true...

well they certainly are setting their sights on Panasonic as this one is a dead ringer for one.

Canon bias on dpreview? Never, right? Even though the D750 was announced before the 7D Mark II, the Canon gets a review posted before the Nikon...

I'd love to get one of these, they are super sexy. But looks like this is for Japanese consumers only, no English option... Price is reasonable too, kit with lens is $~2750.00
