I doubt local Nikon will replace all my Nikon batteries...a lot bought before D500

On article Two in one: LG G5 camera review (79 comments in total)

G5 might be the most ambitious product ever made by LG. Combination of good camera, great sound, fast processor, etc is good, only if these features come in one piece, instead of modules.

Bought a D810 coz thinking D500's price was rather ridiculously high and bought my D500 yesterday with the same price I paid for my D810. My bet was paid off.

akophoto: I have owned three NEX cameras. The NEX6 was the best.

They all captured superb images.

I wouldnt buy another as they dont have the longevity of a DSLR.

All three suffered issues due to this.

The are flimsily made. The shutter button went on one. The screen on another, the shutter on another.

I am now trying Pentax.

If I went back to mirrorless I would go to Fuji.

Maybe I should.
I moved on to A6K as my main backup camera to A7rII/and main camera for hiking. 5t/5r's low light focusing ability is not that great. Improvement is seen with A6K but still miles behind from dSLR. This is very frustrating in underwater shooting coz while your camera struggles for focusing, the very short window to shoot what you want too bebecomes even shorter.

Have to check it out. In fact I found a similar claim from Matt Granger, a Nikon photographer trying out A7rII in safari.

Yes I did. My backup camera to 5r is the 5T (back experience of flooding my 5n underwater) and my 5t frequently has this "card no found" error. From the internet I know it must be the card reading pin's fault. Other than that these little cameras are just fine, as fine as my other cameras.

Captura
Not exactly. Nex cameras to me are made by Sony as more toy like than conventional dSLRS are and I am always worrying about their build quality especially in adverse weather conditions and that's why I bought so many....in case one fails me I can use another. I reality their exceptional light weight (in terms of multiple bodies and lenses in one go) always attract me first when I go out for a shooting.... and I think I have been lucky not to have too many quality issues from Nex so far.

I have Nex5, 5nx2, 5r, 5t 6, 3n. All have been used extensively by me up to the mountains, down to the sea. All were brutally abused with scratches here and there and even the newer A6000 cannot escape its destiny. I fell with the camera and the 10-18 lens once and brought a6000 to the coldest stormy hike I ever had. Guess what all cameras and lenses work like a charm.

I on the contrary have so many Nex cameras....which I find various problems. However, I believe Sony has been doing a lot in improving their qualities and A6300 is what we see after year's of effort by Sony.

Siobhan A: So the A6300 falls short of the 2 year old NX1 without all its incredible FW updates that added cool features like IBIS for video and superior C-AF.

It is sad Samsung gave up because they are still far ahead of Sony. They even have REAL APS-C F/2.8 zooms and a great 85mm F/1.4 prime for over $1000 less than what Sony tries to charge! :D
Oh well. Maybe in another two years Sony will finally make a better camera and good APS-C lenses.

I can't agree with you more but wait, Samsung has such a potential to develop become the greatest camera maker ever but they don't want do it any more. There is one thing we called commitment. Samsung guys are the first ones to master all these technology but when they see the market is shrinking, they are the first ones to quit.

You better try Fuji and come back to tell me if you like them

Mark K: Amazing review..for a new camera. I will never say A6300 will replace any dSLR for person like me..but anyone else, this is a real dSLR replacement. In fact, a dSLR lover like me, always take a mirrorless out for traveling and daily hiking.

The next thing to consider will be 1. buffer size 2. AF accuracy 3. AF tracking ability. 3. low light AF ability 4. high iso noise performance.
If A6300 can solve all these problems, there won't be any place for a D500 or an upcoming 7dIII.

Did carry my gripped D810 mounted 150-600 Sigma...and got exhausted even before I pressed my shutter

Mikael Risedal: well AND this is exactly how Canon fan boys has responded me during the years regarding low DR from Canon and also banding , with Nikon I have a choice to select among many cameras with great and best DR. And regarding Canon my choice is NONE
And Im talking about base iso DR. So my question is still, why this sensor inside D5?
Canon deniers are even funnier people.....

Not weird and t his explains the use of this specific camera...one for action and sport where high iso DR is much more important than base iso noise.

In reply to:

bernardly: Is it possible that Sony is restricting the sensors they are willing to supply to Nikon in a bid to make their own cameras more competitive? There is a danger for Nikon in relying on an external source for key components such as image sensors. Sony really wants to steal Nikon's business eventually. They also want to do the same to Canon but they have less leverage there.

And this explains pretty much why at base iso the DR is not as good as the improved 1DX II sensor.

In reply to:

Toh: "Enables users to capture more than 17 hours of HD video; 33,000 photos; or 28,000 songs"
Why do they keep using this kind of meaningless numbers. There are so many variables in those numbers. Wouldn't making such claims just make them look like they have no idea what they are talking about? 200GB is 200GB, people who buy such cards know what it means!

No, coz many of readers here still do not understand why we need anything beyond 32gb
