  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    D1 was their first DSLR. Then D100. Then D70. Flagship/Pro, then prosumer. Then consumer.

    The video in the D800 is, by most accounts, excellent. The last 2 seasons of Dexter, for example, were filmed with it. It was also the first DSLR form factor to be able to record uncompressed video...

    D50 was the cheapest model in its day.
    D5000 was a new line. It begat the D5100->D5500

  • Thanks for the typo correction. I know what the D3300 is. 4k is not going to hit this price point for years. Right now the only 4k options hover around $2000. One needs and external recorder and...

  • I usually know where I take my photos, but being able to upload them quickly, in the field, is a nice feature.

  • The market for this camera probably doesn't have AF-D lenses anyway. Poor argument my friend.

  • Well, the D3300 doesn't have swivel out touch screen nor heavily weighted to video. Maybe the D3300 is rediculous.

  • This level of camera has always had compressed, lossy RAW.

  • Any sub $1000 mirrorless cameras with a flip out screen?

    If both are the same price, but one costs you more, and one saves you (in both aggrevation and financially), which one do you pick? Now bring them back to their $800 price difference. Some people...

    .... from previous:

    Having used a crippled D800 for over 2 years next to a flagship D# body I can tell you the value of a camera that gets out of your way. The D610 is a work around camera. As...

    @RomanP. Re: the value of price difference. Let's pretend you're right. Let's say they are the same price and you have the opportunity to shoot a wedding with both. It's the type of event you get...

    D800/e/810 has a selectable 5:4 mode.

    Same body? You should use both before making stupid comments.

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    Amen. I've had mine for a few months and there is little it can't do compared to even the D810 I own. Ultimately the D810 is a better camera in most respects and especially in IQ, but I 'enjoy'...

    Never say never. You should read the Nikon forums to see how mirrorless users are coming back to DSLRs because of the D750. And you should try it before making such proclamations.

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    For the price, it appeals to a big market. Pros looking for its pro features and upgraders looking for an easy to use, well handling FF Nikon DSLR. I've had several pro cameras over the years and...

  • Oops.

  • With all the iterations of DSLR, SLR, APS-C mirrorless, alpha.... it's nice to see that this design might actually stick to the wall and give them something to build off of instead of changing...

  • ...... or because a quad copter with camera can inspire amazing visuals?
