Nikon D700 D-SLR A 12.1 effective megapixel FX format (AKA Full Frame) DSLR capable of up to 8 fps when using the optional MB-D10 Multi Power Battery Pack.
Imaging pipeline: A 12.1 (effective ï¾– meaning image making) megapixel 23.9x36mm Nikon FX-format CMOS using 8.45 micrometer (micron) pixel pitch cells with a low signal-to-noise ratio and wide dynamic range (about 12 stops in the D3). A 12-channel readout for faster information transfer allows for a 5 to 8 full size, full resolution FPS rate (see more details below). ISO range: nominally 200-6400 + down to ISO 100 (Lo-1) and up to ISO 25,600 (Hi-2). D700 will deliver D3 image quality for slightly more than half the price.
Viewfinder: A .72x magnification eyelevel viewfinder utilizing a high refractive index pentaprism (I assume made of glass elements) with a 95% frame coverage. A framing grid can be super imposed on the finder screen per a photographerï¾’s preferences of format size.
Shutter: Shutter curtains are formed of a Kevlar and carbon fiber composite hybrid material. This shutter has already been tested on full y assembled cameras through at least 150,000 cycles. Shutter unit has a self-diagnostic unit, which constantly monitors shutter performance to maintain precision.
Body Construction: The camera body, rear body and mirror box are made from a high-strength magnesium alloy. Connection points in the body are weather sealed with precision O-rings to keep out dust and moisture.
Battery: same as the D300: Nikon EN-El3e
Start up, shutter lag times, buffer size and write speed: Start up from off is accomplished in .12 seconds. Shutter lag response time is 0.40 milliseconds. Nikon claims these makes the D700 currently the fastest in its class.
Full Resolution JPEGS: up to 5 frames per second (FPS) or up to 8 FPS with the optional MB-10D for up to 100 frames. NEFs 17 14 bit per channel lossless compressed NEFS.
With the new high speed UDMA CompactFlash cards camera to media write speed is up to 35 megabytes per second.
Auto-focus: The D700 uses Nikonï¾’s Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module with 15 cross-type sensors and 36 horizontal sensors that can be used individually or in groups. In Single Area or Dynamic AF modes, users can select groups of 9, 21, or all 51 focus points. The system also utilizes 3D Focus tracking with automatic focus point switching using all 51 points in conjunction with the metering systems 1,005 pixel RGB sensor to accurately track moving objects using color content and light information.
Self Cleaning mode: a first for a Nikon FX format camera, The self-cleaning system uses 4 distinct vibration frequencies to shake off dust particles from the cameraï¾’s low-pass filter. System is activated at start up, shut down, or on demand. Additionally the interior of the mirror box and the whole of the shutter mechanism are made of materials that inhibit debris creation in the first place. Active D-lighting: Active D-Lighting lets photographers choose from various intensities during capture, while a new Automatic mode also applies varying levels of D-Lighting as, and when needed, to enhance photos while shooting. Active D-Lighting uses localized (very localized: as in on the individual sensor pixel) tone control technology to further optimize highlight and shadow detail while also maintaining natural contrast, giving photographers the ability to make better exposed photos, even in difficult lighting conditions. LCD monitor: A 3-inch (diagonal) 920,000-dot VGA TFT LCD display covered with tempered glass features a 170-degree viewing angle.
Live View and working tethered:Live View Hand held mode uses the TTL phase detection AF utilizing all 51 AF points and allows the photographer to reframe the image prior to making the photo.
Live View Tripod mode is for very precise focusing accuracy with the camera mounted on a tripod with still subjects. Focal plane contrast detection AF can be activated on any desired point with in a specific area. (Note: Using tripod mode Live View on the D3 I use the camera in manual focus mode and enlarge the preview on the LCD monitor if not working tethered to a computer using Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 software.)
Also new is the ability to superimpose the Virtual Horizon feature over the Live View monitor image.
The camera also outputs a video signal to an HD television using the new smaller HDMI-C standard, which clients will certainly appreciate.
Check out Nike’s most innovative soccer product changing the face of soccer boot design forever. When Nike designer Peter Hudson started sketching the lightest, fastest soccer boot possible , he quickly decided on one thing – no limits. Taking money, time and manufacturing considerations out of the equation was a specific decision that enabled the designer to break scientific boundaries, creating a boot made almost entirely of carbon fiber. Something which, until this point, had never been done before.
For Nike, the end results was the Mercurial SL : Nike’s most lightweight – with only 190 grams, most highly responsive yet flexible and strong soccer boot to date. A boot featuring only what’s needed without giving up any performance.

Nikon just announced a major update to Capture NX (called Capture NX2), and there’s already a lot of buzz about this new version all over the Web. Nikon photographer (and Guest Blogger extraordinaire) Vincent Versace has this to say about the new version, “Capture NX2 unlocks my creativity in ways I never imagined. Using this software, the impossible becomes just an opinion. Capture NX2 is a RAW processor that allows you to be in the 21st century.” Vincent is regarded as the leading authority on NX, and he’s just released a Capture NX2 training DVD called “Unleashing the RAW Power of Capture NX2″ (he’s offering a $15 off discount if you pre-order the DVD before NX2 actually ships). Here’s the link with all the details on Vincent’s DVD.
A TV light effect on the window at night tells you that there’s someone is watching some late show. There’s an advantage of it and that is to avoid burglars. It tells burglars that someone hasn’t sleep in that house, so they won’t dare to break in your house. But you can’t just watch TV every night to prevent that so what you can do is to purchase this FakeTV device. It is capable of producing the light of varying intensity and color that replicate the motions of a real television. There are a lot of effects for you to choose from scene changes, camera pans, fades, flicks, swells, on-screen motion, and more.

Here at ThinkGeek, we fully grok that digital convergence is all the rage. We’ve been stocking cassette and vinyl and other analog to digital media converters for years now. And for some reason you keep buying. But we felt like we were leaving out some folks. Specifically, many folks that recorded home movies between the year 1975 and about 1984. Think Air Supply, Pat Benatar, and ‘Who Shot JR?’ and you’ll get the idea. So we took a trip to Awesome Town and picked up this nifty Betamax to HD-DVD converter – at a price that shouts “Totally Tubular”. Betamax and HD-DVD are like a match literally made in heaven (you know, that place you go when you die?), and now you can get a slice for yourself. Featuring simple one-touch record between either format, your media has never felt less obsolete.
Did you know that with the introduction of Beta hi-fi audio, the Betamax lost its slim luminance horizontal resolution advantage to VHS? And did you also know that a dual-layer HD DVD holds a maximum of 30 GB of data and a comparable Blu-ray Disc holds a maximum of 50 GB? Mere coincidence? We think not!
* One button transfer between Betamax and HD-DVD
* Play and Record both Super and regular BetaMax
* Blah, blah, blah
* Uses electricity
* Has a manual
* Something else
* Frakkin’ sweet remote
