eMTi: You at DPReview should take out 3 DL Nikon cameras that will never happen. I sold two of my cameras to get enough money to bay two Nikon DLs. The DL camera never happen, money was spend and I am now without camera and money, because I trusted Nikon. I also believe I am not the only one that Nikon screw up....
The another screw up from Nikon was when they stop updating software for there excellent negative/positive film scanners, and soon after that Nikon stop making them, and refusing to let other company to continue to make such excellent and affordable film scanners and charging them insane money. This and other things will be the beginning of the down fall of the sleeping Nikon.

Your poor money habits are not Nikon's fault.

Nick Tester: It's a good idea, however, as you can already apply smart/ digital watermarks, (as a filter,) in photoshop on an image by image basis, I'm not sure if this is better for my personal needs.

My thoughts and reasoning on this are/ is: Can you regulate how many views that your photographs receive?
I don't believe you can, and as such, I don't believe I'd know how much money I could be spending on such a service.
So, for that reason, I don't think it's for me.

If there was some kind of a maximum cap for monthly payment, or a subscription model, it would probably be worth considering.

(Seriously, if you have a gallery of 12 images at 0.30 (x12) every time someone views that, it's going to rack up.).

It's 30 cents per 1000 image views. 10,000 image views is 3 bucks.

A swing and a miss.

Chris Yates: Bravo Canon. This is the best you can do while Sony eats your lunch. And lunch time was 5 years ago.

I'd bet you that 9/10 action photographers would take a 7D II over an A6500.

I was able to screen shot the image with the windows snipping tool after 2-3 tries.

s_grins: Speakers? This is a gaming monitor

People working on video would probably like to hear some sound with playback. Doesn't seem that odd to me.

OlyPent: Still wondering why these things are still a lot more expensive than standard TV screens, many of which are now 55" and 4k.

It's all pixel density. 55" 4K TV has roughly the same sized pixels as a 27" 1080p monitor. A 31" 4K monitor has greater pixel density than a 60" 8K TV. Tinier pixels means more difficult manufacturing with lower yields.

steelhead3: How can a monitor show 130% of sRGB?

"you can't exceed 100%"

You can if you are comparing two different things. sRGB doesn't cover all possible colors. Therefore there are a range of colors outside of the sRGB color space. If this monitor can display more colors than sRGB, than it is fair to say that it has over 100% of the colors of sRGB.

Just like if I have two bottles, I can say that bottle A holds 130% of the water that bottle B does.

Josh Leavitt: I'd rather have a large format studio display. Take three 43" 4K TVs and stack them vertically so the resolution becomes 6480x3840 (1.6875:1); about 6ft. x 3 1/2ft finished dimensions. That's as close as you're going to get to native full frame aspect ratio 3:2 with mass-production 16:9 televisions, and nearly a perfect fit for 24MP cameras (6000x4000). Some clever work with ultra-thin bezel borders would need to happen for the interior edges so that light bleed could be mitigated between the panels, but the finished product cost would be very affordable since the base product is just a few standard 4K TVs. Vizio's 43" 4K TVs are $400 USD each. Kickstarter anyone?

You'd need to sit about 6 feet away from your desk to be comfortable viewing it.

Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: If they capture 30 fps in RAW at 200 buffer depth this is RAW video camera.

That mas mentioned a lot of times when these products were launched. And people have definitely used them for 4-5 second video clips at 6K+ resolution.

Aroart: I found it rather amusing when my friend trying to bring that very same camera to a concert and they did not let him bring it in because of being an ILC, while I walked in no problem with a Pani LX10... go figure..

I wish they would ban phones at concerts.

Ken Thomson: ...yet photographers switched to EOS in droves in the early 90s, taking Canon to a dominant market position. If the performance upgrade is compelling enough, photographers will switch.

Actually Canon launched with SERIOUS pro glass right out of the gate. In the first year they had a 300mm f2.8 and 2x TC. In second year, they had a 1.4x TC, a 600mm f4 and a 200mm f1.8. Third year they added f2.8 L zooms from 20-200mm as well as the 50mm f1.0 and 85mm f1.2. Fourth year added the 400mm f2.8, 14mm f2.8, 300mm f4, 200mm f2.8 and 3 TS-E lenses.

Canon basically built their entire Pro lens system, including super-teles, in 4-5 years.

barrym1966: I can answer this having just switched from Nikon to Sony

the cost was all the nikon gear + about £8000 - £10,000

but well worth the change

Of course you are going to say that right after you just ponied up all that cash and switched. That is textbook selection bias. Your mind won't let you be objective at this point.

At least Nikon releases firmware updates and fixes bugs...

Jim Evidon: Nice idea. but 100kg? Pants down around the ankles? Not so nice. I don't see that this has any advantages over the Lowepro belt and lens sack approach or the similar design by Think Tank and have disadvantages by exposing the lenses to potential damage. At least those other systems distribute weight around the midsection and offer some protection to the lenses. I have used both Think Tank and Lowepro systems and they work really well.

99% of people couldn't even squat 100kg from a weight rack, much less walk around with it on their belt.

Marty4650: In order for this product to work properly you need a well defined waistline. Just like the male model in the photo, who has a slim waist and a substantial butt. But as men age, their midsection grows larger and their butt region tends to shrink, causing belts to stop working for them. Some older men even need suspenders to hold their pants up.

This makes this product useless for men over aged 50, who are precisely the people who buy most of those big heavy lenses. And clipping this device to their belts with three lenses attached would cause their pants to come sliding down.

Hence... a marketing dilemma.

Sadly, in today's fast-food world, it's not just the 50+ crowd that have "poorly defined" waistlines.

ZurichPhoto: Here's my idea for a game show: Pair this and the swell umbrella thingy that they featured last week -- wear the two accessories together and try to pick up women.

https://www.dpreview.com/news/0347029988/keep-your-camera-dry-and-look-like-a-dork-with-this-60-hands-free-umbrella-or-not

The dorkiest part of that setup would be the camera.

ICPixJohn: Goodness. Does this thing come with a chiropractic referral, or a scoliosis alignment check? Or do you strap another 3 lenses on the other side for ballast.

I suggest wearing it front and center on your belt for balance.

sfa1966: No K-mount yet again! But, no doubt, some wag will suggest that Pentax don't have enough lenses to fill the holder anyway ... :-)

Maybe you can use PK to EF adapters on the holder mounts. =)
