Comments

  1. A slightly larger version than the D7000, to allow for the Larger LCD and sensor. I was hoping they would get rid of the Scene modes and U1 & U1 on the main dial. Flash Sync is too slow as is top shutter speed. I was hoping Nikon would produce an almost pro camera for us almost pro photogs..this in my humble opinion is not it. I'll stick with my D7000 for a bit longer and get some new glass like a 16-85 VR Lens if Nikon will ever ship them. Whats your take.

  2. I'm not keen on scene modes myself, I only use manual or aperture priority in any case. The U1 and U2 user modes are to be welcomed, Nikon should add them to their pro-models. They've been asked to do so for a long time. As for the top-shutter speed and flash-sync, it would of been nice to see but I don't think it's much of a handicap. I've yet to see it (I was invited to the UK launch, but I couldn't attend), but on paper I think it is a sound specification. My only concern is the price difference between the UK and US models. There's less between the D600 and D800 in the UK, making it a more difficult choice. I would choose the D800 every time but when the price settles there should be enough in price terms to make the D600 attractive. The big expense for people with APS-C cameras like the D300s and D7000 is moving from DX lenses to FX.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
