Real world "camera design" feedback provider to camera "lab designers" who never get out to see the real world.
The one ring to rule them all?
Great Mordor meltdown, Batman!
One of the greatest manifestation of a superbly designed gear is the beauty of the front lens.
The 10-30mm used as marketing release image is a CAD disaster.
The epitome of design laziness.
Ask any CAD operator.
ThomasSwitzerland: If you want to get a much overpriced camera with style, take a Leica with Panasonic interior. At least you keep something acknowledged by fashion.
This latest Nikon 1” matches their downhill stock performance. Competition from Fuji to Sony et.al. manifests the wake-up call. Written by a loyal Nikon user looking further.
Nikon loyal users are very smart.
They can easily spot a rort.
Nikon makes great and fantastic DSLRs and scientific optical equipment.
Majority of their photographic gear are groundbreaking and leading edge.
This camera series called "1" is a shamefull product launched by a most respected brand.
For this segment of the market, Nikon has truly lost the plot.
Alexis D: Thank you Nikon for these "1" cameras. Big sigh of relief for Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and Fuji each time Canikon release their sub par mirrorless cameras. These small makers are given more time to establish a stronger base and better chance of survival. Viva la competition, et aussi la diversité!
...and thank you very much also for using tiny wafers called Micro SD cards for memory storage! Wow! It just mimics the brain size of the camera designers! So cool!
Thank you also for making a USB charger! Now we have to find the nearest USB socket anywhere and everywhere! Or we could further be gouged in our pockets buying a real charger at extra cost! Whooppe Doo!
You can buy 2 new Nikon D3200 DSLRs for the price of one V3.
"Come on down! The price is fright!"

If only Nee Con listened to those 3 words, they would be better off.
But nah... Nee CON.
There really isn't much real estate working on a tiny screen. There seems to be a minimal limit to image editing and that would be the size of a tablet.
CameraLabTester: Posted the alleged apology on it's website.
Test case: DPReview news item release.
Ruse NOT working.
OK, no further escalation.
DPReview please delete article.
What? You can't?
Ok, further explanation:
Nikon leaked the apology on it's website (which even the most die hard fan boys would never trawl...) and then...
Lo and behold!
It turns up as an "article" here on DPR! (...not that anybody's interested to hear about production schedules, but hey, it must have been a slow day at the editorial office...).
The RUSE backfired.
Instead of panic and waiting to get their hands on it first... the biggest Ho-HUM and anger: DO YOU THINK BUYERS ARE THAT STUPID NIKON?
So... Nikon realized: It has BACKFIRED! Stop the presses!
Delete the damaging article! PLEASE! PLEEEEEEZE!!!
Posted the alleged apology on it's website.
People are NOT THAT STUPID.
Nikon, for the sake of your impending doom, please change your advertising agency. They are killing you.
Another way of saying: NOBODY WANTS TO STOCK THEM...
"We don't want another D600 Epic BOOBOO... so, please destroy all those thousands of containers at the dock, full of defective bricks, and make new similarly ugly bricks, with fewer defects, ASAP." -Nikon
I like Nikon cameras and their innovative gear.
I like the Nikon brand.
But there is something REALLY WRONG with this camera system.
Nikon is not listening.
It is trying to feed "good enough" fodder to the innocent masses with mumbo jumbo technical word spins to regurgitate redundant features.
The whole system is an ergonomic design nightmare.
What we need to know is who the blazes approved of the el cheapo BOLD TEXT on this site... as of today.
Please fire him / her / them.
Today, DPR made all headline text a shocking BOLD.
Now THAT makes the site a really CHEAP looking profile.
You could have used a more classier font...
Gets up and plays an Eagle's tune...

Kodak has always been known for cheap and affordable cameras that cater to consumers who just want to take pictures, devoid of the technical and the magnifying glass hoopla.
This is for them.
May well become the "People's Camera" if priced right and distributed like the way Kodak covered distribution of their products before.
Both Sony models exhibit unsalvageable blown out highlights at 6400 while the 5D Mark III renders them with rich detail, same both in RAW or in JPEG.
Look at the arches sculpture on the lower left of the tower at 6400.
Back to the drawing board, Sony.
