CRAP! Another Firmware Update For The D3!!

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Rita Berkowitz, Jul 3, 2008.

  1. I'm starting to think I bought a fucken Canon since this is the third
    update. Oh wait, this is to add more features instead of correcting design
    problems. Installed and loving V2.00! Great job again Nikon!

    Stamping out Internet stupidity one idiot at a time. Never empower the
    idiot, embrace it and stimulate it. For more details go to the Usenet
    Stimulus Project page.

    I wish *I* could miss Rita's posts, but someone ALWAYS has to reply to her.

  5. Don't you have to have experienced something at least once before you
    can miss it?

    Maybe someday Nikon will have an update that will alllow the D3 to
    shoot true RAW files instead of processing them in camera like a JPG.
    As you know a D3 NEF file has already been processed heavily and isn't
    a true RAW file. All that high ISO, low noise talk is the result of
    software trickery.

  7. Actually Bret it's due to the larger pixels on a full frame sensor, if they
    try and squeeze more MP's into the sensor, they will loose the higher ISO
    capabilities. Hence it only being 12.4 MP

    What do larger pixels have to do with the way the Nikons process the
    NEF files in camera?

    Here's a nice site that shows how poorly the D3 compares to the Canon
    40D for astronomical photography.

    If you need help with the French I'll ask Helen to help translate.

    Not at all. Many virgins "miss" not having sex. Just as many poor people
    "miss" not having money.
    You may have to know it exists, but you don't necessarily need first hand
    experience to know what you are missing.
