Ive currently got the D50, but im finding it lacking in a few areas and its has a habit of misjudging the exposure.
|Quoting Pavvyben (Reply 7):|
Jeff, i might be wrong in saying this but im sure Nikons high end bodys make more than a "guess" at the exposure.
|Quoting JeffM (Reply 8):|
Nope. It is just a guess based on the percentages of light and dark within the area it is looking at. Just take your camera , put it in AV mode and set it to f8 and put the center point on the horizon and half press the shutter. Take note of the f-stop and shutter speed. Now move the camera up 5-10 degrees and see what it suggests now. A completely different shutter speed. Has the light falling on what ever is in your viewfinder changed? No, but the two images will be completely different. One will be darker then the other. Lower the camera 5-10 degrees and it will be different again.
Your camera is just averaging the light and darks based on some formula. Maybe it is right, maybe it isn't. The principle is the same on all cameras, though the degree of complexity in the formula may be different, but it is still just an average...
|Quoting Pavvyben (Reply 7):|
Indeed i agree with what is in the viewfinder, but for some reason looks different when it comes out.

Is the Nikon D2xs replacing the D2x?
|Quoting Travelralf (Reply 14):|
However: 10mpix or more are quite a lot. Big files & lots of storage required !!! It's nice if you want to crop but if you don't print big and if you can fill the frame the D2HS might be very interesting.

Need rumors ???
|Quoting ChrisH (Reply 16):
His predictions certainly are plausible
|Quoting Viv (Reply 17):|
But I would like to a DSLR with an airtight glass seal on the body (behind the contacts for the lens), so dust could never get onto the sensor when changing lenses. With high-quality optical glass it should be possible without much loss of image quality.
|Quoting JeffM (Reply 20):|
They can program all they want, but it is still just a fancy average. You move the camera, you change the exposure, the light stays the same.
|Quoting TACAA320 (Reply 6):|
Are there too many differences between the D50 and the D70s?
And the D70 and the D70s?
