The Nikon D3200 with 1080p at $700

Here's a reply to the 600D from Nikon: Nikon updates entry-level DSLR with 24MP D3200 and optional WiFi: Digital Photography Review

24MP stills, 1080p movies but without (?) a headphone jack.

Re: The Nikon D3200 with 1080p at $700

While it doesn't offer much for videographers, I can see the new Wifi unit & the accompanying smarthphone app being a huge hit with journalists and event photographers. All those thousands of businesses who currently upload blurry iphone photos to their facebook or twitter pages (ie pretty much every single magazine and newspaper) in the name of speedy communication will now be able to upload good quality photos on the spot.

I know a few surf magazine/website editors in particular who will be jumping for joy right now, knowing that they can now get photos published online within minutes. I'm imagining scenarios such as a water photographer with a wifi unit sending photos straight back to a guy on the beach who is emailing them back to the office on the other side of the counrty where the graphic designer can process them and get them online within minutes - all before the photographer has even left the water.

Im wondering what is the bitrate on video mode and if it provides full manual control during video mode.

Does it have a clean HDMI (for external recorders)?

Can't wait for canon's response to this camera! C'mon canon announce the t4i already!

Well I hope any response Canon might have will also take into account the BlackMagic Cine camera....

Time to up the ante. Canons 50mbs MXF codec in a DSLR ought to do the trick.

MPEG-2 is unlikely in a DSLR. H.264 4:2:2 is the logical next step. However, currently, the only standardized 4:2:2 H.264 spec is AVC-Intra, which is owned by Panasonic.

If you follow the marketing strategy from canon, They might probably response a 650D with similar feature at $1000 for the body

I wonder why they waited until today to announce it? I was at NAB on Monday and all they were promoting was the D800.

I wonder though; they managed to squeeze 4k out of the 1DC aimed at cinema. Seems like the MXF would be the next one down aimed at broadcast, and its a proven codec in that field with the XF300 & C300.

At any rate; something needs to be improved to keep up with the competition.
