    None of canon camera can send footage directly to the internet, they need to go to an computer.
    What can i said, Steve jobs change the world with iphone, that is why sam leong, you need one too.

    Today i went to the camera shop i normally go to and check out new cam.

    They have the NEX 7 but no olympus OM-D M5, so i wait for that to compare first. NEX 7 is pretty neat.

    They also have a canon 5d mk 3 available. I asked for Nikon D800, none, 6 in the waiting lists. As a canon user, i am totally disgrace by canon been thrash by Nikon this time. I am so ashame to use canon. Hey canon no one want to swipe their dirty credit card for 1 lousy megapixel. Screw those wanker that think 8 MP is enough for their needs.

    New lens for sam leong



    A camera lens so wide-angle it can 'see behind you' - offering a 220-degreee field of view - has gone on sale in London, priced at £100,000 - minus the camera.

    When it was introduced in 1970 at the Photokina exhibition, it was the most extreme fisheye lens of all time - a 10lb glass dome which dwarfs the camera attached.

    Nikon stunned the photographic world at Photokina in 1970 by introducing a 220 º fisheye Nikkor with a speed of f/2.8.
    The Nikon 6mm lens prototype was never put into full production, but was made to order for several specialist photographers.

    Jeremy Gilbert, Group Marketing Manager at Nikon UK says: ‘The 6mm f2.8 lens is an incredibly rare lens that was initially designed for scientific and meteorological use. It represents the pinnacle in lens design, from a time when lenses had to be designed with a slide rule and individual ray diagrams.

    He adds: ‘Having worked at Nikon for 25 years I have only had the pleasure of seeing two 6mm f2.8mm lenses. And yes, the lens does see slightly behind itself 220 degrees - you see your feet in every picture!’
    'The 6mm is for scientific and industrial applications and special effects when shooting portraits, architecture and interiors,' says Levett.

    Lens production began in March 1972 and was only made available to special order.'

    Any camera will do for travel photography. The skill is in capturing the essence of the location. Gear is secondary.

    Thanks for responding. Leongsam.

    I am looking for one with built-in Neutral Density filter and DR correction.

    The Canon G1x has a larger sensor than those FourThirds, and an easy access +-3-stop exposure compensation dial on the top plate.

    The main concern is over battery life.

    canon G1X - is LOL, the focus speed is shit. As a DSLR user, you will foam in the mouth using it.

    No, my recommendation to you is Olympus OM-D E-M5.
    the quality is so good, that only one camera (non DSLR) can beat it if you can focus correctly, that fujifilm X-pro 1

    when you put on the optional grip, you can double the shooting time and better grip.

    the focus speed is like a low end DSLR. the touch screen at the back can take shot just by pointing.

    the stabilisation of this camera is so good, it can take 0.5 sec shot

    This is the best for you. unless you like prime and dun mind slow focus, fuji x-pro 1 has best quality and light, it is almost as good as 5d mk 2 in quality of picture.

    When I'm holiday, I've taken fantastic shots with my 6 year old Pentax Optio which takes about 10 minutes to focus.

    A sub $200 compact will do the job.

    yeah but boss, technology have moved on. we do not have to deal with slow focus or shutter lag anymore. Try OM-D ME-5, you will like it.

    Overall conclusion

    In many ways, the D800 had a difficult act to follow in the 12MP D700, which was (and remains) one of the best all-rounders of any DSLR we've ever used. The demand of some Nikon users for a higher resolution model notwithstanding, there was not a whole lot we'd have wanted to see change in an updated model. Thankfully, Nikon's approach to the D800 has followed a similar mode of thinking.

    A majority of the things we liked about the D700; its handling, sensible interface and very impressive high ISO performance have been retained in the D800. Physically, the two cameras appear nearly identical. On the outside at least, the D800 represents a refinement, rather than overhaul of its well-respected predecessor.

    We don't mean to imply that Nikon has chosen to rest on its laurels, however. Far from it. The changes on the inside of the camera are hard to overstate, the most obvious of course being its 36.3MP sensor, which offers three times the pixel count of the previous-generation 12MP CMOS chip. Yet there's more. The D800 shares many features and specifications with its big brother, the Nikon D4. Live view now feels like an integral function of the camera, rather than an afterthought, and the D800's video spec is one of the most attractive of any currently-available DSLR. Dual SD/CF card slots provide not only media flexibility but the option of in-camera image backups. The inclusion of a viewfinder with 100% coverage is another welcome upgrade over the D700.

    And again, much of what we liked about the D700 remains reassuringly present in the D800. There have been some changes, obviously, but the overwhelming majority are changes for the better, helping you work more efficiently and successfully. The only thing we really wish the D800 had inherited was a slightly faster framerate. Although 4fps will be enough for many photographers, we know from speaking to professionals that higher frame rates would have been very useful.

    With the D800 arriving in camera shops alongside its cheif competitor, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, we have two well built photographic tools that are capable of outstanding images. While the 36MP D800 has the resolution advange over its 22MP rival, it's wise to take note of other differences, like maximum frame rate; here the 5D Mark III takes the edge at 6fps vs 4fps (FX mode). Canon has also managed to take a very complex AF system and ease the learning curve with a well-presented series of presets. The D800 counters with the ability to output uncompressed HD video and a range of useful crop modes, including the APS-C sized DX format. Most notably though, Nikon has provided a high end offering that comes in at a street price that is US$500 less than the 5D Mark III, representing very strong value for the consumer.

    did you hold d800 yet on your hands yet.

    that is one lousy grip. Which wanker in nikon design that grip, it is for small hands and just feel like shit. I think the other nikon DSLR have better grip. It is so crappy. I cannot believe it when i hold it.

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/indepth/...d800-and-d800e

    The D800E differs from the D800 by incorporating optical glass between its OLPF substrates that eliminates the blurring effect of the OLPF. This optical glass reorganizes the path of light reaching the sensor and essentially un-polarizes it, causing it to strike the sensor in a straight path. By eliminating this effect and straightening the path of the light, images are recorded with higher sharpness and resolution.
    The idea of increased sharpness and resolution sounds like an ideal consequence, but the risk of spatial aliasing, moiré and color shifting is certainly increased. The D800E does not provide an in-camera solution for anti-aliasing, so it is specifically designed for photographers who can effectively control their lighting situations and are more apt to spend time correcting images during post processing. The benefits of the D800E are also most noticeable when working with the RAW (NEF) file format.

    When photographing in JPG or TIFF formats with the D800E, in-camera image processing dramatically reduces the efficacy of any subsequent alteration of moiré patterns in post production. Because of this automatic image processing, moiré patterns are essentially fixed into the file and dramatic pixel manipulation will be required to remove them during post production. By contrast, with the D800, your workflow can be the same whether you’re recording RAW (NEF) or JPG or TIFF files.

    It should also be mentioned that while the moiré patterns will be more prevalent in images captured with the D800E, image processing tools such as Nikon’s Capture NX 2 and Adobe Lightroom 4 now feature plug-ins to simplify the removal of aliasing. This addition to your workflow could prove to be quite a chore when bulk-editing files, but these tools are promising solutions for moiré elimination.

    Some points to take away when considering which model is most appropriate for you:

    Both cameras feature an optical low-pass filter (OLPF); however, only the D800 truly makes use of it to reduce aliasing, moiré and false color.
    The D800E incorporates an optical glass element between the substrates of the OLPF that negates their effect and results in greater sharpness and resolution in imagery. This increase in definition comes at the expense of an increased likelihood that moiré patterns and false colors will occur.
    The D800E is an ideal camera for photographers who can very precisely control their shooting situations (i.e. studio and commercial setups). This involves control over the lighting, a steady camera (often with the use of a tripod), the ability and desire to photograph with middle f/stops (roughly f/5.6 to f/11), photographing only in RAW (NEF) file formats and a post-processing workflow that allows for the removal of moiré and false colors.
    The D800 is an ideal camera for all shooting situations and allows you to work in any file format. There is no compensation required to reduce moiré.

    With this difference aside, it should be noted that both cameras are highly capable of recording outstanding imagery. While the D800E could be perceived to be the better camera, this is certainly not true for everyone. You should make a careful consideration of your personal needs and shooting styles before determining the best model for you.

    hey samleong, it is not true that D800E have no AA filers, but they have filters that remove the effect of AA filters, which is different from medium format.

    What is your recommendation for D800E or D800.

    I have 5d2 which i am happy, and i am not happy about d800 sissy grip worse than d90.
    should i buy d800, because i like high resolution and i like pixel peeking.
    The shop near my place start to stock d800 and d800E, my finger is itchy. Advice pls.

    I wouldn't pay the extra $500 for the D800E.

    If I want sharper images, I simply run them through http://www.niksoftware.com/sharpenerpro/en/entry.php?

    If you use the D800E for anything other than landscape photography, you'll be spending a lot of time on your computer removing Moiré patterns on clothing, table cloths, curtains.. anything with a repeated pattern.
