New High ISO Nikon FF 2017?

Hi, I found it interesting, and it may spark some discussion here as well.

The author of the following pictures says those were taken at night with an upcoming Nikon body.
First one is lit by moonlight:



2nd one - in pitch black forest:



Honestly, it looks too unreal to be true. But who knows..

Did they mention the housing made out of unobtainium?

What is the point of night time photos if they make it look like daytime?

Maybe to show off on capabilities of sensor and its high ISO processing. Nothing much else.

Hmmm... That first photo does not look right. All of the moonlit photos I've ever taken have stars in the sky. They might be a little washed out if the moon is full, but they are still visible.

"This one is more crazy. Look. No moonlight here. No light at all."

If there is "no light at all" there is no image for the sensor to capture no matter how good it's low light performance may be.
I hate hyperbole.

Even if it is real it will cost a huge amount of money.

I might be wrong, but I very much doubt that there would be enough colour information in a pitch black wood for the second image to be possible. Top quality night vision video cameras only give black and white images...

First one is lit by moonlight:


In the first image the sky is white. Anyone ever tried astro shooting? What exposure times do you need in alleged darkness to turn the whole night sky (not just a moon or stars) into white? This is so pathetic.

Put a camera with an F1.2 lens on a tripod for a couple of minutes at ISO 100 and surprise: You get bright results.

Anyone noticed how neither ISO nor exposure time nor aperture is mentioned (the whole combo, not just bits)?

And then picking a snow white scenario to prove anything about "low light" is really coming from a clown.

Lastly simple photographers experience:
The face of the girl is properly exposed in a shady forest (remember the white snow coupled with strong moonlighting). So we are looking at nothing worse than EV -3 or -4. Lets got for -4.
Pick aperture F2 (silly not to go for F1.4 in "pitch black") in -4 Illumination and at 2 sec exposure time --> requires ISO 3200.

If you ever wondered why so many people think Nikon is not going to survive much longer on the market with their subpar products, now you know: In 2016 they advertise the option to shoot at ISO 3200, presenting tiny web unquality images as proof.
