Sounds like a very good reason to move away from Nikon.

This topic? You gotta be kidding. You're trying to compare a camera to a phone, for God's sake!! One is for taking pictures, the other is for wasting time.

Sam Carriere: Thank you for your coverage of an item that does not exist and that may be available ... when? ...2020?

Ohh, it is too much for me to want reviews of items I can actually look at or buy?

TrapperJohn: Looks nice, but it also looks like a standard large, fat DSLR with a retro body. I'd love to dig my old F3 out and use it with a digital back (now there's an idea) but this doesn't really advance the state of the art any.

Is Nikon missing the point? The Oly EM5 wasn't successful because it looked like an OM1. It was successful because it was smaller, quite a bit smaller, and so are the lenses. It may look old, but it's packed with new ideas. And it's the new, interesting approach that makes it appealing, especially the lack of bulk that makes using it less of a chore and more, well, fun.

Ya and it costs $10,000 without a lens.

Amazing what some people will pay for a logo.

Beckler8: The video samples are, as usual for this site, nearly useless. I've told dpreview before about how we need more useful videos that show AF/AE performance, etc. etc. But you're not interested in improving things I guess.

You could always get a video camera -- which this isn't.

Link | Posted on Sep 24, 2013 at 08:06 UTC

This is all pretty irrelevant. Photographers use cameras, not phones.
And to everyone who wants to show me a superb picture taken with a phone, all I can say is "Just think what that person might have done with a real camera."

On article Adobe releases Camera Raw 8.2 and Lightroom 5.2 (70 comments in total)

Let's enjoy and appreciate the update. It is only a matter of time before Adobe wants to ding Lightroom users on a monthly basis. I am grateful, however, that we seem to be getting lots of time to shop around for an alternative to Lightroom -- and there are quite a few possibilities.

The simple answer to the question asked in this title is "nothing". Real photographers do not do serious work with phones.

In reply to:

AngryCorgi: So they have good on-sensor AF married to the same poor DR sensor they've always had. This is starting to sound like a broken record. Please, Canon, do some serious upgrades to your designs and fab-shop. Even Samsung (NX300's sensor) is passing you now by a fairly wide margin. You don't appear to want to compete anymore.

People who are primarily interested in video should buy a video camera. Duhhhh...

If Sony says "early September" for availability, my guess is next spring or early summer ... maybe.

3dreal: My costs of dealing with digital data is higher than the instant output.

T3, a digital camera and media gets you what? Pictures you will show your grandchildren on the camera 15 years from now?
Most people do indeed have "a computer". But if you are a serious digital photographer, you need much more than "a computer".

Interesting camera crippled by Sony's policy of not providing manuals, either print or on CD. A quick-start guide is all you get -- and not a very good one. Why offer high tech and not tell people how to use it?

Said it before, say it again: Sony is a company that deserves to fail.
