    Is the (Nikon)D4 too slow?

    Watch the video and find out for 'ya self!








    There's only two minutes to go before your life will forever change.

    .... so get a beer(fizzy drinks for the kiddies), a small pack of nibbles .. turn up the volume too as loud as your workplace allows(we all know you're browsing AP whilst supposedly working! ) and enjoy.

    (awesome sound effects )

    Still doesn't make sense, but I suppose you could invest in a Nikon lens to Canon camera adapter to begin with, sell some of the paperweight ... oops! ... lens collection you have, get some proper glass, and take it from there!

    Sorry It does not do a thing for me. Perhaps that sensor has lots of dust bunnies in it now though..

    surely it must ..... at least one small infinitesimal something to your photographic curiosity!!

    I'm assuming that Nikon has worked out a way to turn that ferociously furious flappy motion of the mirror into a pseudo vacuum effect that literally rips the dust off the sensor, and onto the closest Canon competitor!

    Well theres your problem - A lack of quality wide angle glass -> they must need a Nikon to see the world from not such a narrow view Arthur . I really like the video work, and how couldn't you be impressed by the operation of such a machine - even if it was a Canon I would be impressed.

    When Canon finally learns how to make a wide or ultrawide angle lens on a full frame - you can finally crow at Nikon Ashey . I reckon we are pretty safe though, they haven't threatened to yet.

    Whether it makes sense or not, that was a cool video.
    It didn't change my life, but my D3000 promptly ran away & hid under the desk in embarrassment
