On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (496 comments in total)

Still far behind in video. The compression of The Dual Pixel CMOS AF from Canon is a game changer. I had the chance to experiment it on the 7D mark II and C100 Mark II. The d5 still look like an awesome performer in low light. Doesn't seem to have a log mode too... and 3 minutes only at high quality only for 4K UHD 3840 x 2160/24/25/30p. The video compression seem a little weird and too soft for me but overall photographer will surely enjoy is capacity. I'll be curious to see a Timelapse made with RAW photos.

Hedley7d: Many problem with this camera. People jump on 4K cams but they are just so many problem with them. Its the same with Black Magic cameras.

Nobody expect 4K right now, this is only serving filmmakers. TV is not there yet and will not be before a while. People buy 4K TV but there is not much before the end of 2015. The 4K blu-ray should be released in november or december 2015. Providers will put everyone on optic fiber before and we should not expect a lot of programmation in 4K until 2017-18.

right !

arc1791: I just don't understand how any successful video camera manufacturer would choose to presume that consumers (which drive all professional content, after all) don't want 4K everything, especially after seeing for over a half-decade just how crappy their old SD resolution video (of any level of quality) looks compared to1080p.

Don't they realize that 4K displays have been on sale all year long, and that as costs come down, adoption will only hasten? Most Americans, for example, will have at least one 4K display, be it a TV, computer display, smartphone screen, etc. That's going to happen within a year or so. Don't video content creators want to keep their consumers happy? (1 of 2)

"and one can crop and pan 4k video without IQ loss when viewed as 1080p." I agree with you this can be a great tool if you can afford cards, storages and a more powerful PC for editing ... What im saying is that the market is not there yet .. except everything that touches the movie industry.

At my opinion 4K is just ridiculous to have in yuor phone right now.. no need for that. Even if you post that on the web in 4K, 1080 is enough... a lot of PC starts lo lag when playing more resolution than that. 720P is still a standard right now. Anyway 94% of the people are watching video online in default 360P.

AngryCorgi: As usual, Canon puts out another camera that get's spanked by a 4-year-old Nikon in the IQ department. When will they think about either (a) purchasing Sony's sensors or (b) partnering with Sony in some way to improve their sensors to be competitive with what Sony has been producing for more than half a decade??

They do partner with Sony on the new 50 mp 1 DX Mark II that will be released in february

Joe Ogiba: Soft video lacks detail
iTR struggles to track fast moving subjects
Long screen blackout during live view shooting
No AF with continuous shooting in live view
No zebras to evaluate exposure
No focus peaking
No touch screen
No Wi-Fi
and no 4K.
Way to go Canon, the NX1 is going to eat your lunch.

People by The Canon name cos their cameras are top quality. They are not offering the best in the 7d mk II, but they are offering a good & robust camera with some improvements for a respectable price.

caver3d: No, thank you. The GH4 is looking better and better. You will see a lot of videographers opt for the GH4 (as they did for the GH2 and GH3).

Many people report problems with the GH4

In reply to:

Peet van den Berg: I have now read the review for the 6th time from start to finish plus all the comments. My emotion: disappointed! In the camera? NO! You will have to tear it from my stone cold dead hands to get it from me. (And I only have it for 3 weeks now) My disappointment stems from what I perceive as flawed (or even biased) arguments and apportioning weight to the lack of or the abundance of features in the 7d2 by the reviewers. More so the explanations by the reviewers in the comments section strengthens my conclusions about this. Especially Simon's take on iTR. Why say it's a "pro tool" and then mark it down because it is a complex machine relative to e.g. Nikon's offering (3D with less customisation)

I have put a lot of trust in DP Review's reviews of cameras in the past.

I do not any more.

I agree with you Peet, it reminds me the 5D mark III and D800. For videos, People should watch real reviews from real field expert...Like Philip Bloom or Vincent laforet. I always gonna remember this one http://vimeo.com/42065372 people should realise that Nikon is far to be in the game for videographers..

AllOtherNamesTaken: Pretty crazy that the 5DM3 is still priced anywhere near $3,000. You'd have to be out of your mind to pay that in this environment unless you absolutely needed one for a job or something.

You make me laugh "The C100 mk2 is a bad joke. 28mbps AVCHD tops." The C100 MK II is far to be just a cam that give 28mbps AVCHD... It's a dream for small productions... If your shy about the AVCHD just record at 4:2:2 using Atomos external recorder and you'll get plenty of headroom for editing.

I don't agree with you BarnET, the addition of the Cinema EOS line is something that videographers really appreciate.. ask to videographers what they really think. Those Cameras are very nice to work with and bring high quality footage and options for a great price. Do not forget that Canon has revolutionized the world of DSLR in this area couple years ago. The time taken for Nikon to bring his cameras to the same level is the time that Canon has taken to move us toward to its Cinema EOS line...
Even if the 5d mark III and 7D mark II and are good tools for videographers, the competition has now reached and exceeded expectations for this type of camera... but all those years videographers videographers have consumed Canon & Sony...
The 7D Mark II is a cam that might not give you the best image quality but it still give many great options for less than 1900$. Canon has always been more sensitive to the interests of videographers than Nikon this is simply not comparable...

Be careful bodies are currently better for you as a photographer not for me as a videographer... I don't agree when you say That Canon bodies sucks...Nikon is just arriving in the game. As a videographer My opinion was the same about Nikon bodies ...

Ramjager: The 5Dmk3 AF system is "behind the times"!
Talk about garbage hyperbole writing.
41 cross sensors? Seriously.
Maybe rather than writing hyperbole the author should spend some time taking photos that require AF rather than making up utter garbage on a keyboard.
The 1DX focus module is still THE BEST action AF system period and the 5Dmk3 uses that very system.
Typical of DPR these days authors with little if any knowledge of the subjects they discuss is a norm
Wakey wakey DPR stop writing hyperbole based off zero experience.
Given how dated the Canon AF module is 90% of the worlds sports photogs should be upgrading from there 1Dx's that dominate sidelines because it's AF is behind the times!
Yea right.

Ahhh please stop with fragile floppy screen..
