Nikon’s D610 Gets a Dust-Free Green Light

D610_front.high

Way back when, I wrote about the dust problems we were seeing in Nikon D600 cameras. There was enough of a furor about it that when the Nikon D610 was released I assumed that the dust problem would be fixed. But I’m rather the paranoid type, and I never like assumptions, so as soon as the first D610s were delivered I thought it worthwhile to just double-check that assumption. Read more…

In an insightful essay about the “graying” of photography, Kirk Tuck opines about seeing 50-year old men proudly displaying their huge DSLRs while hanging out at the counters at the Photo Plus Expo in New York last month. The generation that obsessed over pristine primes, low noise and 16×20 prints has been supplanted by a gaggle of Snapchatting millennials for whom photography is no different than a text conversation.

Amazon Accidentally Publishes Nikon Df Page, Reveals a $2,750 Price Tag

amazonscreenshot1

It looks like Amazon made a major goof and accidentally (or maybe not) published the Nikon Df sales page momentarily before taking it back down again. In addition to confirming the specs we already expected were coming, the page also let the cat out of the bag in regards to how much the Df will cost… as it turns out, it’s an expensive cat.

If the sales page was accurate, the new Df will cost $2,750 for the body only… so much for hoping it would compete price-wise with the Sony mirrorless full-frames.
