quote: The D4 should at least 24 MP resolution.
quote: My guess is that they wanted the D4S to be able to crank up the ISO to keep its rapid-fire shot mode working in sub-par lighting conditions
quote: but if you need 10-15 FPS rapid shooting to score a keeper you are just a crappy photographer.
quote: No need to guess about what is explicitly understood about the product: High ISO and rapid-fire is EXACTLY what Nikon has aimed for with roughly half of its professional DSLR's.
quote: More nonsense. You don't know what you're talking about. Good photographers know what gear they need and how to best use it. Good photographers know the difference between sports/photojournalism and studio shoots. From this, Eric Martello, I can guess that you are not a very good judge of photography gear.
quote: You are not a good photographer, so you don't know what does or does not constitute "good, great or excellent" in terms of photography. You probably take pictures of cats and flowers with a camera you spent $10K on and think that makes you "pro"...meanwhile the guy with a $500 camera and talent outshines you by taking well-thought out photos that make people stop and look.
quote: Exactly what I was thinking when you said "it needs 50% pixel count increase, for some reason I can't articulate" along with "no need for 10+ fps capability."
quote: The logic you gave for the second 'point' suggests that a single shot camera is fine for people with any skill. But completely misses the market that the D4S (or Canon's 1Dx) targets.
quote: He disagrees with me about bumping the resolution to 24 MP but can't say why.
quote: So "professional" = "rapid fire" and that's how we know?
quote: Huh? It was in the very next paragraph: this is a camera built for speed. More pixels per image means more data to move, which means fewer pictures per unit of time. Learn to parse, eh?
quote: YES, you ignorant git, there is a huge demand in the professional world for very high shot-to-shot rates.
quote: I DESCRIBED THEM IN THE VERY NEXT PARAGRAPH, YOU STUPID BUTTF0CK: sports and photojournalists.
quote: The other emphasis is on absolute image quality, with speed a secondary concern: studio shoots, where conditions are better controlled. THIS HAS BEEN NIKON'S EXPLICIT PRO LINE-UP FOR OVER A DECADE.
quote: You do not know what you're talking about, nor can you read for fucking shit. If you can't retain information across two sentences I'm pretty sure that qualifies you as a shrub.
quote: with current technology there is no reason that going from 16 MP to 24 MP should pose any kind of bandwidth limitations.
quote: Except each picture now requires 50% more bandwidth.Yeah, there's no point in even trying with you. "More data doesn't take up more data." Christ, you're fucking stupid.
quote: OMG It has no built-in flash! And *GASP!* has no top-mounted LCD! It must be junk! What are those Nikon guys trying to foist off on us!
quote: It is a professional-level camera, not a enthusiast's toy. Yes indeed, photojournalists & sports photographers would give their eye teeth to be able to to shoot at 1--15 fps in low light and still maintain a level of quality that doesn't make their pictures look as grainy as a tile mosaic.
