Nikon D7100 $300 Instant Savings: Brand New $900, Refurb $800

Currently going on over at B&H, you can get your hands on Nikon’s flagship DX camera, the D7100, for $896.95 brand new. This is an incredible deal, and $300 instant savings on a camera that normally sells new for over $1,100.

For those of you looking for an even better deal, and don’t mind that refurb tag, you can get your hands on a refurbished Nikon D7100 for just $799. That is bordering on insane value for a very high quality body.

3D-printer-holder-for-the-Nikon-14-24mm-f2.8-lens

Need a piece of gear but can’t find a reasonably priced option? Perhaps 3D printing could help.

That’s what photographers Patrick Ludolph and Christian Steinkrüger. After not finding an affordable filter solution for his Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 lens, Ludolph approached Steinkrüger — a 3D printing hobbyist — with the idea of creating a custom filter holder themselves.

“When I first read the details about the new Nikon D810, I already knew we had a winner on our hands. Yes, incremental update cameras like this are usually not very well received, however, the Nikon D800 and D800E were already reigning champions in the DSLR world. Their claim to fame being their stunning image quality, and the fact that their sensors rank the highest on DXOMark’s overall sensor rating. (Even compared to some medium format digital cameras!)  Most notably, they hold a downright shocking lead over any other competitor (especially Canon) in the specific category of dynamic range.”

“The term ‘game changer’ is tossed about in photographic circles like ‘love’ is among teens.. Most don’t really know how to identify either. When the D800 came around a few years back, the sheer enormity of the statistics involved made everyone stop and think, once again, that this could be it. It captured the hearts and adoration of the masses more than Nikon’s flagship, and there was much high-tone and fancy-chat about it biting at the leg of medium format. Well, it’s been a few years and the D800 has already got its third variant, and more so than ever it seems, this is the camera that would live up to the hype first placed on its forbearer’s shoulders. But how much better is it? Or is it better?”

“The new 36-megapixel full-frame Nikon D810 benefits from not having an AA filter. Although that’s what everyone thought the D800E’s was supposed to be. In this head-to-head comparison review we put both cameras through their paces to find out whether the D810 is really worth the upgrade or would you be fine with a D800E?”

Nikon’s replacement for both the D800 and D800E, the D810, falls into that latter category: an incrementally improved DSLR that probably won’t receive too much flack for it.

Of course, by ‘incrementally improved,’ we don’t mean to say there aren’t features worth upgrading for, and D800 owners in particular will be tempted. Nikon is quick to point out that the D810 and its all-new 36.3-megapixel FX CMOS sensor without Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) offers the ‘best image quality in Nikon history.’

Beyond the new sensor and the COMPLETE lack of an OLPF (the D800E had one, but the anti-aliasing properties had been ‘canceled’), Nikon also packed the D4s’ powerful EXPEED 4 processor inside the updated camera, making sure that moire is suppressed as much as possible to make up for the missing filter, and pushing the hardware to greater heights.

ISO now runs from an impressively low 64 all the way up to 12,800 (expandable to 32-51,200) with the same noise reduction performance Nikon was boasting about for the D4s. The camera is also said to run 30% faster thanks to the new processor, while simultaneously saving battery.

Mike does point out the fact that the D800 HD video suffers from aliasing and moire. The good news is that Mosaic Engineering is developing a special filter to correct for this:

I have been a happy user of the Promote Control for some time. This new system for utilizing the iPhone as a remote device for Canon or Nikon DSLRs is looking quite good and allows for up to 9 bracketed exposures for HDR photography!

I just became a backer and ordered mine!

Some of the HDR features of these new cameras from Nikon and Canon will be helpful. For example, The 5D Mark III will do 7 bracketed exposures up from 3 in the 5D Mark II. It will also do an in camera 3 exposure HDR with variable ranges.  In the small sample below the Canon in-camera HDR seems to generate some halo artifacts, though it is hard to tell in such a tiny image. The Nikon D800 and D800E can shoot 2 frames with a single shutter release with a variable range option.  The Nikon D800 is offering 2 to 9 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 or 1 EV.

Here are a few more details:

I think Nikon did a nice job here of demonstrating the D800 though you might think they could have come up with something a bit more original. The theme of Joy Ride bears more that a little resemblance to “Reverie” filmed by Vincent LaForet in 2008 to demonstrate the 5D Mark II.

The Nikon D800 is starting to look very good in my book!

The next-generation flagship Nikon digital-SLR camera

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the Nikon D4, a Nikon FX-format camera that serves as the new flagship model in Nikon’s lineup of digital-SLR cameras. Nikon will be exhibiting the D4 at the 2012 International CES, to be held Tuesday, January 10 through Friday, January 13 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This electronics exhibition is open to the public.

This presentation looks best at 1080p and fullscreen

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP1x2DbS55E

 

The D4 is equipped with a new Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor (imaging size of 36.0 x 23.9 mm) and EXPEED 3, the latest image-processing engine specifically optimized for digital-SLR cameras, making it the next-generation flagship Nikon digital-SLR camera with the ultimate in versatility and functionality that offers superior image quality rich in detail along with excellent high-speed performance. It has an effective pixel count of 16.2-million pixels, and offers superior image quality under a broad range of lighting conditions with its image sensor supporting an incredible range of sensitivities from ISO 50 to ISO 204800.

The new 91K-pixel (approximately 91,000 pixels) RGB sensor supports the Advanced Scene Recognition System, which is able to recognize human faces even when images are framed using the optical viewfinder. In addition, the Advanced Scene Recognition System offers significant improvements in AF, AE, i-TTL flash control, and auto white balance (AWB) control accuracy. The 51 focus point AF system has been improved with faster initiation of autofocusing and the ability to detect and focus on subjects with less lighting. In addition, 11 focus points are fully functional when lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8 are used. All of this means more precise autofocusing when super-telephoto NIKKOR lenses are used with teleconverters (2.0x). The Multi-area Mode Full HD D-movie movie recording function is capable of recording full-HD movies at 30 fps, and offers three movie recording formats for selection according to recording conditions or creative intent.

What’s more, the D4 records images to memory cards faster with built-in support for high-speed, UDMA 7-compatible CompactFlash memory cards and next-generation, high-speed XQD memory cards. In addition to built-in wired LAN features, the D4 also supports high-speed image transfer via wireless LAN when the new, compact, easy-to-use Wireless Transmitter WT-5 (available separately) is connected to the camera. The D4 is also equipped with a number of new functions that support a more efficient workflow for professional photographers, including one that allows users to add IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council) information to images.
