NICK KNACK ~ I seem to remember that this shot was taken the same morning as I had collected my brand new Camera and lens from Park Cameras in Burgess Hill ~ So taken before I had even read the very thick instruction books or anything :)

Park camera, in THERE you can buy the new Nikon 7000 which has now superseded the old 700 but should you want to save money buy instead the one shown below the Nikon on the link, the Panasonic TZ10 a cracking camera with 12x optical zoom and GPS which I have one as well as TZ9 same but without GPS why?... Crazy about cameras like to try always new stuff its fun! :)) and for last, an expert chap should apply the same logic on all cameras! :))) Nick

NICK KNACK The D7000 is a DX DSLR Camera and does not replace the D700 Nick it is more akin to the D90 D7000 review( Whilst the TZ10 is reviewed in a [group review but one of these is a tempting alternative for a pocket sized piece of kit :))

Nick Knack The pocket sized alternatives are reviewed here ~ whilst the D7000 is not a replacement at all for the D700. The D700 is a DX DSLR a replacement for the D90 Review

Thank you Nick, for the link (very useful!:)) Reviews in my opinion are often subjective to the reviewer but not always and so it is what we judge as being a good camera... Your Nikon 700 it is a good camera from what I have heard ... but don't forget that to equal the resolution of a film camera you would need at least 30 mega pixel or over, your camera is I believe around ten mega pixel so even your Nikon has a long way to go... Having said that though the handling experience is far superior to a compact but it might not be very convenient carrying a large and heavy camera bag... I often take a Panasonic TZ9/or 10, with 12X zoom, in my pocket, the equivalent X12 zoomm for the Nikon does not exist in the SLR and would probably be very bulky if it deed.... Now comes my point. When you look at the PICTURES ANOTHER HERE AND HERE I think we are only splitting hairs! :)) Ciao, Nick

Nick Knack ~ I have always found the dp reviews pretty objective Nick but take your point ~ they and Camera Lab approach this things in a very balanced way with plenty of test pictures to help you make your own mind up. I quite fancy the Samsung HZ10W as a small pocket sized alternative. I'm not sure that I agree with you at all about film versus digital ~ a top quality shot from a D700 can be blown up the size of a large tower block for example ~ but yes hair splitting is where we are :)))

My Nikon D40 has only got 7 mega-pixels, my old camera, a SONY DSC-W90, had 10 mega-pixels. There is no comparison here. It's the camera body and the glass in front of it that makes the difference :)

Nick Todaro on November 21, 2010

Glad to hear that you think we are splitting hairs Nick, the subject I think is more complicated than that, example; sensitivity versus noise, the more mega pixel cramped in the sensor the more noise they produce at a certain ISO setting often at 200 ISO. If the camera lets say has a good noise reduction then you'll get less details because of it, to that add colour fringing (all lenses have it) ghosting flair and a lot more! So splitting hair is only the beginning if I go on we will end up bold! :))

Nick Knack and Amelia Royan ~ Being a lazy little bean here is the D700 reviewto save me a lot of writing :) ~ Amelia always impresses me greatly with the quality she gets from her D40. I don't pretend to be a Camera nerd ~ to me it is just a tool, but of course you have to choose your tools with care ~ the sensor plays a part and all the stuff that gets the image to the sensor ~ the quality of the glass being all important there ~ as to noise reduction etc ~ it is far more complicated than you set out, but I accept that you are only using broad brush strokes at present. Finally it is the eye behind the camera that makes a huge difference ~ composition and awareness with an average camera will end up streets ahead of a poorly thought out and executed top of the range fancy pants camera shot :)))

Nick Todaro on November 22, 2010

"The glass in front" Amelia, is very important but a low mega pixel camera will also give better pictures hence you prehistoric camera will do well :)) especially a good quality design camera (usually) because of the low density pixel in the sensor than say of a much higher one. Click my last link where it says AND HERE that shot is only a 5 mega pixel camera from 2005, lastly to really check the quality blow a shot first at 100% then one more time. There you will see the good and bad points of a lens, noise and other defects. Nick, yes all lenses have it even your 12mm. Nikon!... I am not a camera nerd :( I just enjoy trying new things out its fun, do give it a try Nick, some people love gadgets and so help keep business going! :)) Nick
