SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: April 19, 2012

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: April 19, 2012

Get your morning started right with a few fresh reviews from the past few days - we've got not just a couple of smartphones that'll blow your mind, but a Bluetooth speaker to rock out with them on. We've got the HTC One S for T-Mobile review, the HTC One V review, and the Big Blue Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker review as well. Meanwhile we've got a devastating loss on our hands - or rather, Nokia does: the entirety of China. They're also not doing so well in many other sectors with a $1.7 billion dollar loss in the first quarter of 2012. On a higher note, Spotify has had a giant update for Android for version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Nikon D800 takes on Canon 5D Mark III for video quality

In the war to create the greatest handheld camera of the day, both Nikon and Canon have come out swinging with video-ready units under the names Nikon D800 and Canon 5D Mark III. What we'd like to know is if the difference between video qualities on these units is one to be concerned about, and/or if it'll be a deciding factor in choosing one or the other to purchase brand new from the camera shop. Gizmodo's Michael Hession took the opportunity to film several scenes using both cameras with the same settings this week, and his results basically seem to bring the discussion to a head.

D4 and D800 price climbs up to 10% after Nikon blunder

Nikon has admitted that its upcoming D4, D800 and D800E digital cameras will cost significantly more than previously promised in the UK and Ireland, blaming a systems error for suggested retail prices out by as much as £490 ($777). In a statement today, Nikon UK confirmed that, rather than £4,799.99, the D4 would in fact be £5,289.99, while there are increases for the cheaper models as well. However, it's not all bad news for those who got in early on the pre-order list.

Nikon D800 launch video uses Canon EOS-5D Mark II footage

Nikon D800 launch video uses Canon EOS-5D Mark II footage

Nikon recently unveiled one of its most sophisticated and high-end cameras to date, but there was a problem in the teaser video that it used to help showcase its power to consumers. Footage in the video wasn't actually from the camera it was advertising. Actually, as a matter of fact, it wasn't even from a Nikon camera. Can you say, "Oops"?

Nikon D4 and D800 launch dates revealed

This week the folks at Nikon France have made themselves the first to tell the world when the Nikon D4, D800, and D800E would be released. Their dates match up with the few tips and rumors we've heard before for US releases, so it appears that it's time to call it in: March 15th will start sales for the Nikon D4, March 22nd will be the first day the Nikon D800 will be available, and the D800E will be up for sale starting on the 12th of April. Each of these cameras have been announced previously without solid release dates in-tact.

Nikon confirms third new DSLR incoming

Nikon has promised another new DSLR sometime in 2012, joining the freshly revealed D800 and D4, and while the company won't say exactly what is in the pipeline, its says its focus is improving the quality of existing models rather than adding new types of camera.

Nikon D800 takes amateurs to a whole new level of HD

Nikon D800 takes amateurs to a whole new level of HD

It's not that the new Nikon D800 is for amateur photographers, but it's certainly priced at a place that'll put the fantastic power of a 36.3 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor within reach of the interested but not pockets-bursting citizen. When you consider how much film equipment costs if you're looking to capture HD video for a television show or even a high-quality commercial, $3k doesn't seem like all that much. When your resolution reaches nearly that of a $10,000+ medium format camera and you're offering it to the public at less than half that price, you may well have a winner on your hands.
