Some claim their units have back-focus issue. The camera does have AF fine-tune that can be used to correct the focus.
But if amount of back-focus extends outside the fine-tune range, then it will require Nikon service. I’m sure there are units that do indeed back-focus and need repair. But I suspect many more users mistakenly and incorrectly attribute any AF issue with back-focus.
Back-focus means the AF is not calibrated correctly. It will not focus right sometimes and miss focus sometimes. So I suspect the rate of true back-focus quality control issue is smaller than people claim.
Auto Focus learning curve. There is definitely learning curve on getting the D to focus correctly. D is very sensitive and this learning curve is steeper than expected. It will takes some practice and possibly changing your shooting method to get the focus consistently correct. My experience. There are out of focus images, camera shakes, subject motion try taking photo of baby and toddler who are constantly on the move , etc. I thought I had “back-focus” issue. After doing AF test, I confirmed there is no back-focus.
But there is still AF reliability. After couple months reading web forums particularly dpreview , I finally learned the tricks on improving the AF reliability. First off, why so many people including me had problem with AF?
My take: – 16 meg. With 16 meg, you can zoom in to and still see quite a bit of details. So any out of focus shots will be very apparent This might not be the case with older DSLR with less than 12 meg. Web forums stated that the AF sensor size is larger than what users see in the viewfinder. This can cause confusion on exactly where the camera focuses. Sometimes the AF sensor focus on more contrasty region outside the AF box, which is not what the photographer intended.
Here are the suggestion on focus: – Use 9-point dynamic AF area mode. The center 9 AF points are cross type, so they can focus on both vertical and horizontal features. The other AF points are either vertical or horizontal, which are not as sensitive. If using the center AF point with 9-point dynamic AF area mode, then all the center 9 cross-type AF sensors are being actively used. With AF-C, the focus is continuously being updated. While focus is activated, move the camera ever so slightly, so the subject area where you want to focus on is being moved around the AF box in the viewfinder.
As you are doing this, the focus is being updated and improved. When the focus stops changing you can hear it in the lens even as camera is being move slightly, then you know you have focus locked. You probably don’t have to do this all the time. But for subject that can move like kids and pets , indoors lower light , and low contrast subjects, this really helps. There is no way I can use these low shutter speed without camera shake and blur on D Your mileage can vary depending on how steady your hands are.
But expect to use faster shutter speeds than you are used to. Personal taste. This is particularly true if you use AF-ON for focusing. I have being using D for over 1 year now.
The image quality, low light performance, dynamic range, and features are just incredible. Luckily, I’m able to figure out the AF issue or non-issue months after I got the camera. Now, I don’t even think about the AF while shooting. I can keep my attention on the subject and framing; and enjoy the resulting images. If you don’t want to deal with the AF learning curve, then stay away from D Out of focus photos are no fun and there is no way to recover those images. I have truly come to love this camera and have been using it since Dec If you’re a beginner, as in, you have no idea about photography and are not willing to learn technical concepts, then skip this camera and just get something you can set on auto and fire away.
The D is a very sophisticated tool and it can be very frustrating if you don’t know what you’re doing. I upgraded from D50 which was excellent but I wanted better low light performance high ISO capabilities.
On my D50 I had no problems getting images just as I wanted technically without much effort. With the D I struggled at first and it took several months of reading and testing out the settings to finally understanding it. Just the focus system alone takes some knowledge to get it working the way you want to when you want to. The focusing is fast and the body handles really well. Most controls are accessible without having to dig into the menus.
Keep in mind that the bodies mentioned above don’t have motors on the body so it limits you a bit in lens selection. As far as I know, all the lenses Nikon currently makes have built in motors so it shouldn’t be an issue. Another thing to remember, cameras don’t make great pictures. The person operating the camera makes great pictures.
Getting a nice DSLR doesn’t guarantee you’ll be creating some great images. Practice makes perfect. Nice camera but I can’t get it away from my wife! This is a preliminary review. Just before a trip to the Everglades, my D’s lcd info panel light wouldn’t turn off and it kept abnormally seeking the cf card resulting in quick battery drain.
Of course the fix was having lots of batteries and turning it off when not shooting. But In panic assuming that the D was going to completely fail, I read Ken Rockwell’s review and noticed the D’s price. I didn’t want or need the lens, but what can you do sometimes? I haven’t had time to evaluate image quality in detail, but it’s impressive at least up to ISO Without the battery attachment it’s small and light, but with good ergonomics.
It’s got most of the feature required for my shoots and tons of goodies if you’re just a camera bug. Combined with the VR it’s a dynamite, relatively affordable package. It was easy to use without consulting the unusually well written manual. However, if you’re used to the D, etc. The iso button’s on the back left and the exposure options are set with a dial like on the D70, so you can’t change the most important settings as easily.
I don’t like the new control for setting the focus options. The 6 fps is cool, but I’m used to 8 fps with the Ds battery pack. Random remarks: So far, taking movies is easy and fun. Rockwell states that the quality isn’t great, but they look excellent when shown on a large led hd tv. I have had no trouble focussing with my or any other lens. I don’t like it that you can’t display both iso and frame count at the same time. The lcd info display on the top of the body seems fine, in contrast to criticisms by other.
At this point, nothing much to contribute until I can get that camera back from my wife. My D healed itself, I did lots of trouble shooting, but don’t know why it started to work again. This is a great camera except that it’s destroying my technique because it’s so easy to use.
It’s really fun taking videos and as stated above, the quality’s great. And Scott Kelby, notwithstanding, the built-in flash ain’t so bad either.
See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. The D produces great image quality and feels very responsive in most shooting situations. It shines especially in low light. From a specification point of view a My main points to recommend D – It’s very practical, all commands are available quickly using the buttons and wheels.

Automatic with Manual. Auto Focus, Manual Focus. Auto, Full Frame 35mm. NRW files eat up more card space and they take time and a degree of expertise to process.
If you don’t want the hassle, you can shoot JPEG and manually select white balance depending on your situation, from the usual range of presets, including daylight, cloudy and incandescent. Interestingly, the P’s maximum shooting rate of 7 fps for ten consecutive images is the same regardless of what file format you shoot. While this is a useful framerate for shooting fast action in theory , it’s not always useful in practice, since during the time that images are being written to the SD card, the P is ‘locked-up’, and won’t even let you zoom the lens.
Even with a fairly high-speed card I used this one this takes seconds: an eternity if you’re trying to follow a moving object. With a cheap no-brand SD card, you might be waiting as long as seconds for the buffer to clear after a single burst of ten frames. The P’s video feature set is competitive, without being particularly outstanding.
At its maximum quality settings, you can record video footage at 4K, at 30p, with the option of 25p sadly not 24p and Full HD capture at 60, 30 and 25p. A microphone jack is provided, but there’s no headphone jack for active audio monitoring. At its maximum quality settings, video footage from the P looks very nice. Detail is good, and at wide angles, video is smooth and assuming the camera isn’t moved too rapidly free from obvious distortion.
The camera’s built-in microphone does pick up some zoom noise, but it’s not objectionable and you have the option of an external microphone if it becomes a problem. Where quality drops is — again — at very long focal lengths, especially when directed towards distant subjects. Moisture and haze in the air and optical softness combine to give rather mushy results at mm, but the Vibration Reduction system still does a good job of keeping footage stable, despite snaking about a little and ‘grabbing’ if the camera is moved.
Rolling shutter can also be an issue when panning: especially against a cityscape or a scene with similar vertical elements. As you can see from the clip above, the extraordinary range of the P’s lens makes it a powerful tool for videography nonetheless, which may go some way towards making up for these issues. Plus this is coupled with an image stabilization system so effective that you’ll rarely — if ever — need a tripod.
Assuming you respect its inherent limitations, the P is a powerful tool and could be a very useful second camera to accompany a more conventional mirrorless ILC or DSLR setup.
Of course, a lot of people shopping for cameras of this type might not have any experience of shooting with an ILC, or even know what the terms Raw mode or 4K video mean. They just want a camera with a really powerful lens that they can take anywhere, and use to shoot whatever they find there.
If you recognize yourself in that description, and you’re looking for advice on whether or not you should buy the P, I’d say that it depends on what you’re intending to shoot. If you need the versatility of a mm zoom range, and you want the comfort of knowing that you can shoot landscapes one minute, and heavenly bodies the next I know the chronology of that doesn’t really add up, but just go with it , the Nikon Coolpix P is your best option right now, without a doubt. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a decent camera to take with you on day trips, family excursions, or for extended travel, and you don’t need massive telephoto reach, there are plenty of other options on the market which offer better image quality.
Of course, neither can match the P’s zoom range, and that’s the trade-off. Let’s be honest though: if you’ve read this far, it’s because of that lens, right?
In that case the matter is clear-cut. The simple fact is that pound for pound and dollar for dollar , within the current crop of super-zoom cameras, the P represents the best value. Scoring is relative only to the other cameras in the same category. Click here to learn about the changes to our scoring system and what these numbers mean. It’s so weird how people will tell you what you can’t do with this camera and yet have been proven wrong on every level. If you don’t like the camera you don’t have to get it.
It takes quality photos and does many things. That my other Nikon cannot do. So why am I interested in this camera? Putting a 1. Sure, I can use shorter focal lengths and a camera with a larger sensor if the birds come closer to me, and I do; but often they won’t cooperate. So, an affordable camera with a decent image quality and a very long lens is the most practical solution.
I might add that I do not see the P as an “only camera”. It really needs to be thought of as part of a suite of cameras. I think I’d rather see a 1″ sensor with a bit less zoom on this camera.
Heck, even a mm or mm zoom would be three or four times the zoom I get out of my mm lens on my D AFAIK, the biggest zoom for 1″ is mm, that’s not “a bit less zoom”, but half. The sort of camera Uncle Bob takes on his holidays. Along with his Hawaiian shirt and sandals which he wears with socks of course.
Real Men don’t take pictures with a phone. Not even with the Coolpix P I owned and returned two P’s. They are so slow to zoom and focus you miss all the good shots. I wore two P’s out and am now working on a P I have have three Nikon digital cameras. As for being a real man, maybe I’m not.
I’m sorry to contradict you, but the only drawbacks of P are the size and weight; its optics is the best amongst all the super-zoom cameras. Ben-D: With all due respect, and a tip of my hat for an honoured disabled veteran, I wish to make a point about this Real Men stuff, Sir.
Real Men was an underrated movie starring Jim Belushi and John Ritter, which inspired a book written by Timothy A Bianchi, on which, with dark and wry humour, he sneered at the galloping aggressive feminism and Politically Correct wave of thought that was attacking the stereotypical masculinity.
Nothing to do with your acts of heroism for which you deserved your medals, Sir. I looked at these things for travel. It is a 40x, but the good thing is I can fit it in my pocket, so if I am going out casually or somewhere sketchy I’m not walking around with a Rob Me sign around my neck. The images are nice too. The reason I went shopping was that on multiple trips a mm lens on a 1.
I would like one of these, very much. It weighs about the same as the P For a camera with even a one inch sensor to zoom from 24 to , it would be too big for the average person to lift. Maybe computational photography could give us such a range in a smaller camera body. Bigger sensor, higher iso and dynamic range, stabilization, mm reach These shots are much better than a camera phone IMO. Would be a fun camera to have for the amazing reach.
Important areas were not covered by your writer. Auto-focus and manual over-ride when at mm, is extremely important. Connectivity with smart phones needs a much better discussion.
Unless you are videoing car races or air shows the video is useless with the extremely loud zoom motor. My B has less zoom noise.
Then I prefer the Sony RX10M4 despite its almost double price tag, slightly heavier weight and less zoom range 25x vs 80x. Indeed the rx10 iv is the better camera up to mm but when I need more reach the p is the winner between the two.
The bigger sensor is not able to make up for the big difference in focal length. That is why I have both instead of only one. Also the video stabilizer of the Nikon at mm is better than the Sony at mm. More than fine enough for a traveler wanting a very flexible range and not wanting to weigh themselves down with 20lb of stuff of change lenses on the fly.
This is not a studio camera. This is not a macro lens. This is not a razer-sharp optic; the edges are disappointing but again, for some folks, a good choice.
Is crop better? Can you have the same range with a crop body and one-two lenses? With 4 lenses, probably no. If you simply crop out, can you achieve better image quality? Maybe, depending on how much you crop. Can you use cropping and affect the compression characteristics as if you had a truly long lens? This camera is right for some, wrong for others and a compromise for most. Isn’t just about everything in life a compromise, cameras included?! There are thousands of combinations of “compromise.
In some ways it is good Nikon did not go 1″ so they can still provide affordable super reach cameras using more practical sensors for this particular genre. Sony the creators of this sensor are struggling with massive size and price bloat when only reaching mm equivalent. I see this camera as a tool for solving certain technical tasks, which would otherwise require a much more expensive and bulky telescope with attached DSLR camera.
Like super long range surveillance and such. There you don’t need much quality or ability to print on A2 format. You just need the work done. I think for birding this sort of camera is fine, well for getting good pictures of smaller birds anyway in my experience with the Canon SX50; quite often one can get good images that are life-size. But, of course, if the light is not sunny and bright they can be a ‘challenge’ to use. RAW helps a bit, but Sadly, there’s no ‘free lunch’ in photography.
We DO seem to suffer from sanity problems these days, dont we? I used to sell cameras, and that is what I’d say were I still selling cameras, and I was an early adopter of the Sony , whose zoom was amazing on a sensor the same size but sensibly only 8 megapixels. Too big? APS-C is still better. Nobody wants super-pixellated bald eagles or insects on roses do they?
I think I can see your point. If you want top quality images, this camera may not be the best choice. However, I still have my P and I am happy with it. I was also happy with the P and the P before it.
I did rent a Nikon mm lens a couple of years back and its image quality was great. However, it was big AND heavy. The P is bigger much bigger than most of its superzoom rivals and predecessors.
However, compared with a Nikon D with a mm or a mm, it’s small and light. I’m sure I would love and use the thing a lot at the long end, but with the proviso that the lens was sharp edge to edge and corner to corner, and that means I would have to buy in a store as they get wrecked easily when shipped, with risks to our health going shopping- because its going to get a lot worse, with recent protests efforts to aid governments in their cull promoting a “Second Wave” before the first has even peaked, if it has really yet arisen, in most countries.
This makes a mm Zoom Social Distancing Machine useful, yes, but to preserve our times, surely a better quality than I see here is called for! All I can say is no one should take advise from you on cameras. None of that happens if you know how to take pictures. I thought the Vr in the P is Nikons claimed best ever. I hope Nikon try to improve the Image Quality by Firmware update. Image quality are very important. Honestly, there’s a limit to what the sensor is capable of.
I don’t think firmware would make much of a useful difference. I find the results to be very competitive between the two cameras, especially when I use the 2x digital TC on the Oly. Does optical resolution depend on the optical aperture real focal length divided by f stop?
So would the M43 set up be better for astrophotography, even though the P allows for 60 sec exposures? Since this is the third variation of this concept in Nikon’s lineup after the P and P , I think we can assume they are selling enough of them to make it worthwhile to produce them.
So, apparently more than a few people do want them, and find a use for them. Both cameras have really good 2x digital teleconverters too. And a fair treatment for the significant number of persons who appreciate what a camera like this does. Within it, an attempt I much favor, to in begin again to let a variety of persons understand what they can gain via RAW capitalized for those who accustom that.
There are such excellent, fast tools; Capture One my favorite, but even Adobe can do it, if they originally convinced it had to be hard.
It takes so little time, and has so much satisfaction in rapidly tuning in results. Maybe there’s a hope here. The ‘i paid a mint, now give me profi pics in Jpegs from the camera, I’m a profi Some of their resistance can have an amount of point — when they’re ripping off very multiple exposures hoping to get one of them into the night’s sports page. When you see how the first rough-looking shot, like your excellent mountains example, can become so improved.
Show why you ‘took the picture’. Be able to share it, without any embarrassment, with persons you like — and persons you respect. Illustrate why you like to be interested in photography — and use your excellent tools, both the ones in your hand, and the ones which are the completers, that you just as thoughtfully choose, in software.
Slap in an APSC sensor, make that a f2. Add in-body stabilisation to that and you have a near-perfect video camera. Right now it’s just another small-sensor all in one thing being sold on the promise of an outlandish focal length.
That form factor and the dial made it look like the small all in one video camera with an internal ND filter and a decent sensor size some of us videographers have been waiting for. Instead, it turned out to be just another crazy long lensed, large aperture and small sensored monstrosities grandpa Joe uses to take bad cat pictures. PK – Grandpa Joe, is that you?
Actually I use a P to take some very good pictures of Hummingbirds at some distance. The only combo I have that will best it is a Canon L with a 1. And, yes I have been around since before your daddy was a gleam in your Grandpa’s eye. I really don’t know why in the comparison chart the Canon sx70 hs is listed better in the “sensor” category.
We all know that with such a small sensor too many megapixels simply means worst images. Even 16 megapixel of the P are probably too much. What it does mean is wasted sensor resolution and unnecessarily large file sizes. There would be better image quality with a slightly larger sensor and you could still get the extreme zoom range.
Tripod not needed with this camera except if taking long exposures.. But can’t get the details that I can with the P Subjects are simply too far away.. Something is never overpriced unless there is an equal alternative at a lower price. Since none exists in this case it is not overpriced. Same lens Af is faster P has the edge in zoom reach and I. Funny i paid same exact amount for my D as this P :. The FZ80 only goes to mm equiv. Add lenses to cover the same range as the P and it will cost far far more.
See, the P is not overpriced. Cass it is overpriced because in some places you can find the P for the same price or even a little less.
I don’t think the P sold very well so “some places” may be trying to unload stock. Using the term “some places” is rather meaningless anyway.
I can just about guarantee the P wont sell anywhere close to what the P did, it was a cult classic. OutsideTheMatrix eBay is not representative of the market as a whole. Some sellers sell below the price fixed by the manufacturer which makes it somewhat of a free for all and you may have trouble getting warranty repairs. As I said, I think some sellers are unloading their Ps because they sold poorly.
I mean it’s the same sellers you mentioned, they just sell less expensively on ebay and I dont need to pay for shipping. Camera gear is notorious for being overpriced, especially because how little you get for it on resell Look at the price of the red dot sight, and the big, beautiful evf is easily worth twice that in comparison. Excellent and fun camera for amateur photographers who want to capture what they see at huge distances away, who aren’t pixel peepers, don’t want a hernia lugging massive lenses about, and accept that the sensor needs good light to perform well.
Even a to mm lens wont give details that this lens can Not much use for general wildlife shooting. Maybe some deer on sunny meadow. Every single picture I watch, with just a little bit more critcal eye, appears to be a mess, especially this horrible smearing which destroys every details and makes the pictures look cheap, boring and without any depth.
This is a camera for people who already love there smartphone and just want to have a bit more reach, without any interest in image quality.
It is fine for screens and small prints. I doubt Nikon would expect wildlife photographers to use this. This camera does what it says on the tin. Big reach,low price ,decent snaps. No more,no less. Probably huge fun. It’s for those situations when getting an image at all is more important than the image quality.
If you never encounter such situations, you can happily ignore this kind of camera. OH, come on! Look at the seize; do you really think this is the kind of camera you always want to have in your pocket, just in case? These all well past mm BTw if you shoot in RAW with this camera Also how many camera’s allow handholding at mm?
These are not using digital zoom I suspect it is just a euphemism for pixel peeking and the whole idea of these cameras is to substitute optical zoom rather than analyse massive crops. A very fair review.
As one could argue about the image quality, what good is a mm F4 gem if you have a subject that requires mm? By using tools like Topaz or DXO one could post process it to something more acceptable. The longest FF that I have is mm, and with an extender could get to mm. Besides that, manual focus is almost impossible to get right, and shake so hard to manage with IBIS doing little.
This camera is not for me, but I read the report, enjoyed it, and think this camera may be right for someone that likes to play with very long focal length in a relatively compact camera, and will mostly only use lower resolutions. It helps if the person is good at playing with advanced noise reduction and sharpening algorithms. After analyzining everything in this article including the images , it seems like, you can get pictures from very far away, but not very good ones.
That is pretty much what I got out of it. They are also reflected the images shown, even the moon shots and the picture of the eagle. Just another run of the mill superzoom with a tiny sensor. Well written,thanks. The big zoom is really helpful for shore to sea shots for sailing boats etc.
But lets not kid ourselves,generally the IQ is pretty poor except in ideal weather. Still, if you need the focal length What annoys me about these cameras P and p is that compared with the Nikon V3 or J5 and 70 – lens they are somewhat massive and have worse image quality.
But neither Nikon nor any other manufacturer have a replacement for that mm 35mm equivalent combination. I continue to use mine because sometimes mm equivalent range and decent quality at least in bright light is what I want to shoot. The ergonomics of the J5 with mm are beyond atrocious and the V3 is not all that much better and suffers significantly worse image quality.
You can’t even charge the battery in either without a separate brick two bricks if you want to take both cameras. So you would have thought someone would have improved on that by now. Much bigger. I have looked at it as the nearest equivalent. But if carrying something that size it makes you wonder whether you shouldn’t be using a full-frame instead.
I still use a Nikon V1 with an added grip and a CX lens mm equiv for wildlife and occassionally sport. Very fast focus and very sharp. Very easy to use but would have loved it if nikon updated the V with the new sony sensor but it aint gonna happen. I’ll use it until the lens dies I guess as you can still get bodies on ebay. The V2 handles great a bit plasticy but it is lightweight so I don’t mind too much but the J5 has much better image quality.
Was dreaming of a V2-like body with a better sensor but it will never come. Kipplemaster, RussellP, lecoupdejarnac: Thanks for your thoughts. I am interested in this idea.
I realize that Nikon 1’s days are done. But from all that was created for that format, what was eventually the best long zoom image quality? J5 on the CX? Is that better than a Sony rxiv? OneLeggedCat J5 on was almost certainly the best, but sadly an ergonomic disaster as per my original post. I would assume that combination was better than Sony Rxiv but would like to test that assumption.
It seems logical for the same reason that I would assume any lens is better in the range than any lens is in the same range. Very long zooms are almost invariably best at the short end. For example I have Sony and from it is really quite sharp. I have used superzooms since Tamron in the s and this seems a common trend.
I remember seeing one of these in a shop a while back and being shocked by how massive it is – it’s gigantic. The review doesn’t seem to mention this and and also doesn’t show it in the hand not that everyone has the same size of hands or compared to any other camera or anything else.
Those who remember the “bridge” cameras horrible, misleading term of old may think it’s similar but it’s not. I may be wrong, but I wonder if you didn’t see the P instead. The P didn’t really hit the shelves in camera stores in the US till February. What was available before then that was gigantic was the P zooms out to mm. It weighs over 3 lbs. They are much bulkier. Love the line: “Coolpix P boasts an even longer telephoto setting mm equiv for those times when mm just isn’t enough.
The computational aspect will help deal with the diffraction and noise. This camera will step-up the Nikon-Walmart relationship. I’m expecting some other type of articles from DPR. Like: what would be the new “normal lens” focal length. Are we going wide angle or tele? I mean articles, you know I don’t think that many if any of the Walmart brick and mortar stores have P’s for sale.
Those stores tend to stock much cheaper and smaller point and shoots. There may be some available online through 3rd party sellers.
I know that many people don’t like this camera or the P or the P, but I think they are useful tools for some enthusiasts. If mm or mm or even mm is enough zoom for you, then you don’t need a P There are other cameras, cheaper, that will get you better picture quality.
However, with the right settings in the right environment, I think the P and its siblings are the best most affordable tools available. At least the best bang for the buck tools. The RAW support is clearly the definining feature of this camera and actually positively impressing me. Not just for the added editing headroom, but even in tough circumstances for this tiny sensor, even the noisy RAW like in the cropped bird photo is SO much more naturally rendering and pleasing than the soft mess from the JPEG’s here as well as from the P and P It’s just unfortunate that camera manufacturers are hell bent on softening photos to hell and back without even leaving options to disable that madness for those of us who’re otherwise happy enough with JPEG.
To speak frankly, and with all due respect to the author of the upper review on P, I would say that those results we can see as the test images from this cam aren’t telling the whole truth. P can produce super solid images, with lots of detail. Of course, as with all “superzoomers” having such a small sensor, you’d better keep your ISO up to max. The statement that many gearheads on this forum should embrace instead of becoming anal about specs is from this review from the photo at 24mm “But does it matter?
I have the P and I accept it for what it is. But super solid with lots of details? Avoiding the longest end of the zoom and hence diffraction also helps. I’ve carefully looked at thousands of images from both the Nikon P and P The picture quality of the P is clearly sharper, probably due to a better lens.
The P lens is apparently the same one that was used on the older P, but the P lens was newly developed for that model. If I was using a P, I’d set the lens to never go beyond 2,mm, which is plenty of zoom for almost anyone. Hey Avian, thanks for the good words and link. If anyone wants, they can just look at a couple of pics in my gallery.
Barney, you forgot to mention the most important aspect of this particular superzoom – it’s just plain fun to shoot with! With the new, fantastic evf carryover from P , unbelievable image stabilization, and ability to shoot stuff that’s almost touching the lens all the way out to Saturn’s rings, I dare anyone to bring one up to your eye. It’s an addictive tool that you won’t want to put down. I am impressed by the iso photos. As I said in the right circumstances it does the job.
Mind you ,you must be very good at software manipulation. I doubt I could get the same results. PedroMZ – You could get very similar results to the Dodge as the initial result you get from the cam counts. No use of excellent processing if the initial output isn’t good. People still think that the cam itself would to the whole jobe.
It’s the user’s proficiency that enables the success. For me, your output shows me what in reality a good photographer can do with such camera. So far, It’s a promising story.
Avoid corona? Almost anyone is already safe with corona. But maybe you are halfdead with no lungs from smoking and buying poisenous food and inhaling air in cities. Ok avoid corona. Because the flu is the old mans best friend. Unfortunately, Corona is pretty much active in several parts of the World. Nearest to Slovenia we have the North Macedonia locked seriously with it.
In addition, on June 15 Slovenian borders with Italy are opening. Italy is loosening their lockdown but they aren’t quite out of the troubles. Thanks PedroMZ. Lower ISO values do seem to return the best results. As for that ” But maybe you are halfdead with no lungs from smoking and buying poisenous food and inhaling air in cities.
Healthy indeed. With all due respect, I wouldn’t dare to underestimate the related dangers caused by the humans’ light-mindedness. Stephen, is that why the amount of detail I see in my lunar images with my EM10Mk2 with the lens with the 2x digital teleconverter almost matches the P at the mm end of the zoom?
Also, the 4K videos on the P arent a crop out of the full 16MP sensor, rather it is using the whole sensor at a lower resolution- you can see this in the forum thread that shows a 4K video of the ISS, it looks smaller than when captured using the full 16MP with the P How are we talking about Covid lol? Insulin prices are through the roof too, also since It’s severely diffraction-limited.
Especially at the longer end of the zoom range That sensor size and resolution requires an f2. At the long end of the range, the P is a 3 mp camera due to diffraction, assuming that the lens and sensor were perfect but no faster and no bigger. There’s no need for a better sensor, unless it’s a bigger sensor which means a bigger, heavier lens. Diffraction does impact the resolution however, as a video camera, a 12 megapixel sensor cropped to 4K aspect ratio and rendered to P could be better than the slightly too dense sensor in the P and P I use the P primarily for video and there is simply nothing that is appreciably sharper for practical video in reasonable light even at 20 to times the cost.
Furthermore, at mm or greater equivalent focal length, there’s nothing you can take to a location that doesn’t require truck access. You can pack these cameras and get video inaccessible otherwise, whether due to cost or transport or physical limitations.
The stabilization shines handheld at focal lengths up to about mm equivalent and after that, brace with solid objects and beanbags.
Don’t get me started on the tripod mount location. This is a good option if you want a longer lens. If you can get by with shorter get the Panasonic.
