Nikon D5200 review

That certainly looks nice and sharp to me in 1080p. Better than my D5300 I would say. Can you tell us what the focal point in the lake shot was, what lens you used and what aperture please?

 

I can't see any point in 720p though. Soft as hell and loads of pretty nasty moire.

 

PS: Not sure if it was my download or your upload, but the file stopped playing halfway through ...

Kitt lense 18-55mm @ 18mm aperature f3.5  wide open so not sharpest f-stop ;)  The back trees in the lake was fucus point with auto focus and locked, if that u ment.

 

720p is ofc soft as hell but close to Canon 650D 1080p ;) hehe.

And MEGA seems to be down at moment.. Cant check my upload.....

 

Edit. When i DL it , it works ok.. so i think your dl is corrupted..

Hard to say on youtube but I'm not seeing a massive leap in resolution over my D5300. Hopefully Nikon will release a firmware update so it can be hacked too. The better processor may allow a higher bitrate ...

 

Resolution is the D52/53/7100's weakest point in image terms, so the hack is very good news if it really makes an appreciable difference.

@mojo43: Sorry I'm not sure what your point is? :huh:  It's a very nicely shot video but technically the image isn't too impressive. Even considering the poor compression of the vimeo upload it looks pretty soft to me.

The last video that I posted as an example

Oh was that Mayanmar video 720p? How do you know - I can't see any spec's? It sure looks soft and moire-ish enough to be 720.  :lol:

Just because it's 720p 

 

Do you mean because it's 60p?

 

It isn't tagged as 720p on Vimeo.

 

Anyway, we should probably return this topic back to the D5200 ...  ;)

"energy efficiency improvements in the D5200 extended the battery life from 400 shots to 500." this is what i read. But that 74min is awesom step up from about 20-25min.... Although camera was stationary on tripod shooting lanscape, but still impresive battery life now
