Even at the top echelons of professional photography, the lumbering DSLR is becoming a bore. Smaller shooters with big camera specs are the trend, and with that mandate in mind, Nikon's releasing the Df. The new DSLR—yes, DSLR, not the full-framed mirrorless monster of rumors—inherits its key guts from Nikon's…
Well just call this guy Mr. Magic Hands because he makes dissembling and repairing one of the best cameras in the world look so easy that it must be sleight of hand. I know this is real, but I still can't believe it.
We've heard ridiculous things about the Nikon D4's low-light performance: In short, word was that you can basically take great photos in a cave. We didn't go spelunking, but we did put this $6000 monster through its low light paces, and the results were even better than we'd hoped.
If you're going to lay down $6000 for the super-fast, low-light stalking Nikon D4, you might as well pony up another $900 for the WT-5 dongle that cuts the cord. Or why not string 10 D4s together? Wireless bullet time at a cost of $69,000.
Nikon's new D800 SLR is a study in expectations and identity. Laid bare, the $3000 D800 is an impressive camera. But it's probably not the D800 that a lot of Nikon fans have been waiting for—what some feel they'd been virtually promised.
If you're used to shooting with an everyday DSLR, the Nikon D4 is like holding fully-automatic machine gun for the first time.
Nikon's $6000 D4 might just be the new most deadly lightstalker around with a new 16.2-megapixel full-format CMOS sensor that has (relatively) gigantic 7.3-micron pixels (bigger than Canon's new 1 DX). And it shoots at up to ISO 204,800. Did I mention it's better than the D3s in almost every way?
Not much info to go off of here, but the French publication Responses Photo published some shots of what might be the Nikon D4. If this is in fact accurate, Nikon's new flagship DSLR could be right around the corner.
Just as our MacBook Pro Thunderbolt high is starting to fade, we get a fresh syringe of anticipation straight to the neck: Nikon's impending D4 might offer support for Intel's superduperfast connection. And this would be a huge lifesaver.
Nikon's 2009 AND 2010 roadmap may have been leaked on Grafika, detailing the upcoming bodies and lenses the company is working on.
Looking something like the love child of an OQO and an HTC Tilt, Sharp-Willcom's new D4 WS016SH UMPC is apparently the first of its type to have the new Atom Centrino fizzing away inside. That 1.3GHz Atom Z520 is matched with a five-inch LED back-lit 1024 x 600 touchscreen, 1GB of memory, a 40GB drive, 2 megapixel…
