D850 time!!!!

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 1, 2017, 1:02 PM

Nothing to see here

Nothing much going on in the Nikon world this month. That is unless you are interested in the new D850 which is probably a yes.
The D810 has been a pretty big hit so to follow this up Nikon had to do something a bit special. Design your own sensor you say? Well Nikon hve finally stopped hanging out with Sony and designed their own one. Oh and it is pretty good too.
The sensor packs in 45.7 effective megapixels, which is a lot but manages to make some rather special images with it as well as 4k video. You can even shoot at an SD card melting 9 frames per second with the optional battery grip or 7 without.
The 153 point autofocus sensor from the D5 is going to be a very welcome addition and the silent shutter option could well be a great way to sneak out some frames when shooting wildlife.
This isn't just another sprinkle of mediocre additions that we have become used to but a fairly bold stride for Nikon's next D8** DSLR which we look forward to seeing more from soon.
You can read all of the details on the Nikon blog.

Here are all of our tutorials conveniently categorised for easy browsing.
We aim to add more tutorials periodically as well as update the ones we have with the latest information to keep you bang up to date.
If you don't find what you are looking for then hit us with a message and we will see what we can do to best advise you on your photography query.

I love this group although I'm not happy with my new NIKON D5300..
MundM1 Featured By Owner Edited May 17, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Calling the D7500 a "worthwhile upgrade" is a bit controversial, I think. If one already owns a D7100 or D7200, I don't know if the sensor alone would be enough to make such a high prized purchase again, I'm sure there need to be at least one more successor to the D7500 till it might be considerable. The lost card slot (from 2 to 1) and the worse battery life alone would make it a very hard decision if you already got one of the previous cameras in the D7x00 series.

Welcome to the group :)
put simply:
the everything-Nikon gallery is for minimal image editing
the Everything-postprocessed gallery allows you to submit images with more editing than we would have otherwise.

Looking at your galleries photographs; I'd suggest you can submit to both galleries depending on what image you chose. If you get stuck on one then check the rules. If it can't go in the everything-Nikon gallery then, with very few exeptions, you can submit to the  Everything-postprocessed gallery. 
As ever if you are still stuck then ask one of our admins, you will find us all quite lovely really.

Thank you very much for accepting my submission! 🖤

Why is there a post-processed section? Every image gets post-processed, unless uploaded as raw directly from the camera. Sounds somewhat pejorative to me.
in-my-viewfinder Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
have a refresh of the group rules and all will come back to you from when you read all about this before :)
CroWelsh Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2017   General Artist
Yes, your point about every image getting the post-processed treatment is correct to a point, but there needs to be a separation between the use of physical photographic techniques / equipment (minimal amount of post-processing) and the reliance upon software manipulation / effect plugins (extensive amount of post-processing).

These are fundamentally different, so we provide galleries to help distingush between the two, with the hope that it assists in the development of members photographic skills and knowledge, alongside the art of software usage.
MundM1 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Fair enough. So it's more subtle versus obvious, I guess.
