fPrime: I can imagine the DPR staff meeting where the subject for this video was decided...

Scott: “Guys, Nikon Z is being slaughtered in the forums and comments section. Nikon isn’t happy and threatening to pull advertising. What can we do?”

Chris: “Boss, we can compare Nikon’s newest Z5 camera against Canon’s 1st-gen, entry-level RP. Surely the Z5 will be able to beat an old camera, eh!?”

Scott: “That’s exactly the kind of innovative thinking we need here at DPR, Chris. Here... you win this Canon red camera strap and set of Nikon gloves I have sitting on my desk!”

(Inspired by the Camera Conspiracies board meetings)

Get a life ?

gaul: Xs = Xs Max?

Apart from size obviously..
This year iPhones have exact same specs?
Xs = Xs Max?

For reference, iPhone 8Plus had a better (stabilisation) camera than the standard iPhone 8

Thx all

Yeah they have the exact same sensors/lenses specifications. Both are stabilized too.

HRC2016: First of all, none of us will be able to obtain the camera that was just reviewed. It's a preproduction model.
I wouldn't get too excited until you read reviews by people using the street version and who are not compensated for their opinions.

Second, I think the comparsions to existing Nikon cameras is useful to get SLR users to mirrorless.

I'd be interested in hearing how these Nikons compare to the current mirrorless offerings. Mirrorless has been around for ten years.

As an existing mirrorless user I'm not interested in these models, but others might be.

Because you think Nikon pays journalists to try out pre-producion models ? The only money they get is from ads and sponsored links.

barrym1966: probably dominates camera breakdowns yes with those dodgy shutters and banding issues :)

My D810 works like a charm :) So fun seeing Sony fanboys trying to seek validation online instead of taking pictures with their awesome cameras.

Debankur Mukherjee: I would prefer to assemble a desktop of almost same specification at half the price.......


As I said, you're not in Apple's target then. Apple is all about closed ecosystem, simplicity and streamlined UI.

If you need custom builds, yeah sure stay in PC world, nobody's gonna stop you from that, Apple either.. Different strokes for different folks and all that.

Thanks to the good resale value of Apple products, instead of upgrading individual components you just resale this iMac Pro for 3k in 3 years, shell out another 2k for whatever specs it’ll have by then and you’re good to go.

Anyway, if you like upgrading your hardware yourself, you’re already out of Apple’s target for this product.

nerd2: -IMac Pro RX Vega 56 clockspeed: 1.25Ghz (22% downclocked from RX vega 56 cards)
-IMac Pro RX Vega 64 clockspeed: 1.35Ghz (13% downclocked from RX vega 64 cards)

Based on current benchmark results, it seems that the baseline version (downclocked vega 56) will be roughly on par with GTX 1070, and optional vega 64 will be roughly on par with GTX 1070 Ti.

And with $5K, one can build 16-core threadripper system with twin 1080 Ti - which will be roughly 3 times more powerful than top-of-the-line iMac Pro.

Yeah and uh, you’ll have no screen, no ram, no drives, no nothing so that’s a pretty crap comparison.

Call me when you do.... Including the 5K panel you won’t be able to. In fact one of the YouTube reviewer tried to make one equivalent Lenovo workstation and arrived to 5.100$.

tonybelding: I have room on my desk for a pair of 24-inch monitors or one 32-inch behemoth. Which option would most of you take, I wonder?

One big and good quality monitor is better than two smaller and of lesser picture quality, imo.

Dual-screens setup aren’t THAT great honestly, unless you’re a video-games streamer, or do music/video production on a daily basis. Even for photo processing I’d pick one big screen over two small ones everyday.

Boissez: 48 Gbps! That's like one whole DVD worth of data transfered every second. Amazing.

One Blu-Ray, DVD’s are not even 10GB.

Exact same situation as me, I’d love to enjoy the D850 but my D810 is already way beyond my level so I guess it’s smarter to invest in better lenses instead of getting a totally overkill camera.

Kudos to Nikon for not putting out a half-hearted design. They really gave it their all with the D850 and it shows brilliantly.

LessMirrored19: AF in video is the biggest advantage in mirrorless over DSLRs ... At least for me ..

That’s because they use both AF types at the same time (phase detection and contrast) with the Dual-Pixel AF.

In reply to:

elee1967: Of course. Who need that thing, when - according to DPR forums - one can simply see 3D effect from a DSLR photo.

You can but only if the lens has less than 5 elements and was made before 1998 ;)

PropaPH: over one thousand comments and it's only been up for two hours.... is that a record?

It's because the comments are back from when they published the very first page of this "First Impression Review". They've been adding pages several times and the comments end up being a whole lot in the end.

In reply to:

melgross: Sounds like what the new iPhone 8 does for $699, which includes the entire phone and everything else that goes with it that this, for $500, doesn’t have.

Does this also shoot HDR 10 and in the 4K color DCI-P3 standard as the iPhone does?


Get you facts straight before trolling attempts, the iPhone 8 can stay up to 30mn at 1m under water, meaning it gets the IP67 certification.

In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: I miss those resolution number charts that compared lines per picture height. It was really useful. Does anyone know why that was discontinued?

I guess because they show the lens performance as much as the sensor's one, and you can't compare different lenses or adapt them easily on all mount. Not to mention the crop factors too between different sensors.

Bambi24: How do you do exposure compensation without a single dial on this thing?

Where is the mode dial?

Do you have to use live view for everything? That could be pretty bad if the sunlight is blasting on the screen and you can't see a thing.

Remembering your D850 comments I was under the impression that you absolutely loved live-view :D

heavymeister: Look at the detail of the blackheads on the model's nose. Nice.

"blur filters" OK thanks Bambi to proving that you know nothing about serious photography. Keep commenting about the D850 LV AF please, at least you're entertaining in that, but don't try serious stuff you might harm yourself.
