    Excellent, I’ll read it to the kids tonight at bedtime, I’m sure they’ll be thrilled! ;)

    • photoroto

      They’ll hate you later on for leading them down the primrose path to professional photography. Wall Street Journal, ‘nuf said. You’ll get a much better retirement home.

  • Kynikos

    Quick word for Admin: solid reporting on this one straight through from start to finish. This is why I check the site at least twice a day.

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      Thanks!

  • Looking forward…

    Dr. Peter …. any D900 buzz?

    • Aldo

      I’m more interested on d9300 buzz

      • http://www.davidkasman.com/ David Kasman

        I’m more interested in buzzes that have nothing to do with photography ;)

        • m35g35

          I second that one!

        • amen’

          coz that buzz leads to good photography….

    • Sports

      You could just as well ask for a D500 buzz or a D820 buzz.
      Actually, I heard that a D5 is on its way, possibly in 2016;-) Perhaps a little later. An earlier release is also possible :-)

      I now can confirm, 4 new camera body spotted in world cup brazil: 2 from canon and 2 nikon; also 3 new lenses: 2 from nikon and 1 from canon.
      the first canon body is a high mega pixel prototype, format FX and the other one is dx pro doby. I have no specs. New canon fixed lens for sports with fluorite, no specs.

      Nikon: the new d810 is announced last weeks, so the other body in the world cup is a pro level dx format no specs, but the sensor high megapixel without Low pass filter.
      Two new lenses one is ultra wide with fixed aperture and the other is an upgrade of fixed telephoto lens with vr.
      Thats all. :)

    I think this is an utter forgery written by the Nikon haters over at Canon. We all know that Nikon would _never_ release a D800 upgrade before releasing an upgrade to the D300… ;-)

  • photoroto

    Finally confirms there will be available bracketing at 2 stop steps for 5 frames, information not stated in some specifications lists but not others. No solar disc is safe now.

    I wonder if my pre-order will make first cut at BH? Wish me luck with that.

    Yeah, good reporting, as always! Better than we deserve.

    • jtra

      Even 3EV steps are described in manual. At first, reading your comment, I though they left out 3EV for D820 ;-)

    What’s up with this?

    “Cameras purchased in Japan display menus and messages in English and Japanese only; other languages are not supported.”

    • AlainCl

      Well, that’s one way to restrict Japan/US/Can/UK sales outside specific geographic areas: don’t make it available in other countries’ languages!

      • Spy Black

        Easy enough to load in new firmware.

    • Abe Biddon

      That’s for the domestic market cameras, foreigners not really appreciated in Japan

  • Clifford Martin

    I just tried to download the D810 manual to the Manual Viewer app and the D810 manual doesn’t appear on the list of available manuals yet.

  • anon743

    Thx Pete…

    Am I understanding this statement incorrectly? Does this really mean I need an additional licence to produce commercial motion picture work?

    AVC Patent Portfolio License ( taken from page xx )
    THIS PRODUCT IS LICENSED UNDER THE AVC PATENT PORTFOLIO LICENSE FOR THE PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL USE OF A CONSUMER TO (i) ENCODE VIDEO IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE AVC STANDARD (“AVC VIDEO”) AND/OR (ii) DECODE AVC VIDEO THAT WAS ENCODED BY A CONSUMER ENGAGED IN A PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY AND/OR WAS OBTAINED FROM A VIDEO PROVIDER LICENSED TO PROVIDE AVC VIDEO. NO LICENSE IS GRANTED OR SHALL BE IMPLIED FOR ANY OTHER USE. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM MPEG LA, L.L.C. SEE http://www.mpegla.com

        The document linked in the engadget related to this 2015 thing talks only about delivery. So those fees mean that you have to pay if you provide an AVC video some where. That means that Google would need to pay for AVC encoded videos that it hosts in Youtube. Or Vimeo. Not you. But for now, it’s free from fees if the website and videos are free as well.

        As a person, who understand a little bit these kind of license things from the mobile phone world, here’s my understanding: That licence in the camera manual means that Nikon has paid consumer licence fee for the AVC encoder/decoder that’s in the camera. It means that Nikon has promised MPEG-LA that it’s cameras are targeted for consumers, not professional work from the AVC usage point-of-view. And that’s true and legit: those are “professional” photography cameras, not “professional” video cameras. Also, they are consumer products: you can obtain them from a retail store. Typically, a true professional equipment (in the video field) needs to be purchased directly from the manufacturer or it’s local sales representative, and it requires making some sort of mutual purchase agreement.

        Yet, professional video work can be done with such “consumer” camera just fine. No license can prevent that. A professional can take a consumer product and use it for his/hers work. His/hers professional status would start affect when the recorded video is commercially published, e.g. published on a website or released as a Bluray disc. For this, a different AVC related fee must be paid (except for 2015, the web videos published free do not require this). So typically, a broadcaster like NBC or FOX would pay this fee.

        The AVC fee will be paid in the video editing software as well.

        Also, D810 provides uncompressed HDMI, which can be connected to a “professional” AVC encoding recorder to avoid this licence issue, if you are truly afraid of any possible licence problems.

        • MUAH

          I must correct one thing there: “The professional status would start affect when the recorded video is commercially published in AVC format” concerning the AVC/h.264 licence.

          These are very difficult things, but remember that MPEG-LA and similar are really only interested to those, who take MPEG-LA technology in use in their products. I cannot see that they would start suing/preventing anyone using a Nikon camera for professional video work. However, they could sue Nikon from misusing their patent portfolio and demand Nikon to pay professional license fee for every sold camera!

    Is this pretty much what everyone was expecting regarding electronic first curtain shutter?

    *PDF manual Page 323:

    And yet still no option to assign the function button to allow easy ISO adjustment with one hand (e.g., Fn + rear wheel). How hard can this be?
