Default Nikon Germany to concentrate on full frame products

"Nikon Germany to concentrate on full frame products"
Headline on Nikon Rumors
Oh, Gott sei Dank. I am so frustrated by those cameras whose sensors only cover part of their frame.

Best regards,

Doug

If it's true, Doug, it flies in the face of current trends to either more accessible MF or else professional quality more compact APS-C and full frame cameras. I see no reason why wedding photographers would not move to the Sony Alpha in droves. It's 7R version could cover and large event picture!

It doesn't make any sense to focus on heavy shells for the same wonderful Sony sensors!

Yes indeed. Incredible how all those cameras are equipped with partial sensors, isn't it?

Hi, Cem,

Yes.

Its related to the "crop camera" problem.

My only crop camera is a Folding Pocket Kodak 3-A. We bought it in an antique shop in Oklahoma. We suspected it might be a crop camera because of the U.S.Department of Agriculture property decal on it.

Sure enough, I found a lab to develop the film that was in it, and the result proved the conjecture:



Photographer unknown (presumably U.S. Government Employee,
on duty, hence this is in the public domain).

The camera also meets the repulsive modern use of the term "crop camera", as its frame size is smaller than the frame size of another kind of camera.

Best regards,

Doug
