sbansban: "Electric" level??????
The camera send you an electric shock when it's level. No need to look at the screen, great improvment ;)
Hubertus Bigend: I wonder how a smallish EVF with 462 x 346 effective RGB pixels can be "respectable" for a camera that offers 24 MP, let alone so many years after the first mirrorless camera has appeared on the market. Even the best EVF available today still lacks the clear image of a good optical SLR finder that allows precise manual focus without the nuisance of having to switch into a zoom-in mode. But an EVF like the current Olympus finder and probably the Fuji X-T1 finder, too, is at least a step in the right direction. New electronic finders should improve on that, not deteriorate.
Maybe because less and less people use EVF to compose ?Recently, i go to the Eiffel Tower, young use phone, their parent use compact camera, grand pa use dslr and use a view finder, japanese use either phone or mirroless. And many photographer using camera with viewfinder compose with the big lcd screen. It's always strange to see people shooting with dslr at arms length :)Me ? I use a GM1, nice IQ, not so great ergonomics and LCD hard to see in sunny day.
JABB66: in the article and in the main page...
"that >>shaves<< precious..."
Because it's a slick solution :)
Eleson: This puzzles me. The differences between this one and the mk2 are big enough to warrant a new name and to sell them in parallel.Why mk3?
The just follow canon naming with 5d mk1, mk2, mk3
Paul_B Midlands UK: A huge seller for sure. Bang on. Never so many positive remarks for a new product I'm stunned! Ok no articulating screen or time lapse as pointed out and it's not gold plated either. Great work Sony,I hope the firmware is a LOT better than my NEX5n.
for time lpases, there is an app for that in the play memories apps.
racketman: Amazon will be hoping the appeal by the FAA is unsuccessful assuming they intend to go ahead with their drone delivery service.
For driving a truck, you need a license. And if youy run out of gas, the truck simply stopped, and don't fall on your head :)
jackspra: Nikon cant even match the little GH3 video specs.
it's troll day ?
George Veltchev: I think a more dressy packaging is needed ... this one is more suitable for a two-door fridge ... even Samsung can do it better !
There is one big advantage with an anonymous package, it limit robbery. I hate amazon package with the big amazon name all around.
dougster1979: The camera is missing an Aps-c sensor, viewfinder and sd card slots. Nikon really needs to hire some new staff!!!!!
You know what ? It already exists, and it's call a Nex-6 :)
joeyv: Faster than even the fastest pro dslrs. Unmatched telephoto reach w/ ft1 adapter. A unique tool that gives photographers new capabilities. And it all fits in the palm of your hand. (Well, not quite.) if you can't see the possibilities, you sure are missing something.
It's like a sport car, high price, unique possibilities, but not for every body and every day use :)
photogeek: After brilliant cameras like E-M1 and X-T1, this must be some kind of joke. Nikon, news flash for you: people won't buy a flaming bag of poo just because it says "Nikon" on it.
it's Nikon, they buy :)
RichRMA: The camera has some impressive specs, but the same thing 4/3rds was criticized for, small sensors, is even more constrictive here. Nikon might be onto something; the whole idea of mirror-less was small-size and the 1 system achieves this. It'll be interesting to see if they can compete with the more mature Olympus and Panasonic systems.
The gm1 have a bigger sensor, small size, a 24-64 kit zoom and i bought one for 620€ new And it's already a lot of money.
Stanny1: A 10-30mm yields a minimum of 27mm? What does it take to go to REAL wide-angle? My NEX-3 has 18mm at very low cost. That's why you don't want anything less than a APS-C sensor. Rephrased question: Why anything less than an APS-C sensor?" In the case of the V1-V3, why should I pay more for a tiny sensor? If you want a small sensor, get a cheap compact.
18mm on APS-C is 27mm in "real" FF format. For compact wide angle, the GM1 is a good choice with a 24-64 compact kit zoom. Quite heavy distortion at 24mm, however.
I don't really like this new style of treatment, desaturate, overexposed sky and blueish tint.
rtogog: How to hold this camera when taking picture?
with your hands ;)
AliRoust: This computer's LCD only displays about 67% of the Adobe RGB color space. And, you can only see 8 bit color!! For this price tag it's simply ridiculous. For those photographers and graphic designers that have worked in a 10 bit color space and have high end monitors ( such as NEC, EIZO, Lacie) displaying 98% of Adobe RGB, this is a major downgrade... By that I mean, going from about 1 billion colors to 16.7 million. All that "Retina" labeling sounds good but definitely doesn't look good...Apple makes no LCD, laptop or computer that can accommodate that!? Yet their prices are up there...Unfortunately for those of us who have seen 10 bit images, there is no going back.See my detailed review under comment section on Amazonhttp://www.amazon.com/Apple-MacBook-ME294LL-15-4-Inch-Display/product-reviews/B0096VD85I/ref=cm_cr_pr_hist_2?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addTwoStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending
who cares about 10bit images for sharing ? Unless all people on Facebook, google+ and other socail network have true 10bits full rgb screen, a laptop editing is more than enough.
The kit zoom doesn't seem very collapsible . The pana 12-64 is really collapsible, this zoom is quite big.
With thit hat, he's really a gear head :)
Adrian Harris: OMG - it simply blows away the Canon 5D Mk111 for showing fin detail, even in very low light - wow. Now that did surprise me!
It's not a surprise, the A7 is 36mpx without AA. It's competitor is the D800E, not tested with the new scene. The A7 missing too.
but where is the aperture ring on the lense ? This camera is mainly for people with lot of old manual Nikon lenses.
