Timmbits: Is this manufacturer out of touch with reality?
This is 2015 after all. Not 1995, not 2005, but really 2015!

I just don't know what question to ask:

Why are we here talking about, reading about 1/2" sensor cameras?
Why is a Walmart camera being featured here?
Why do they even make this camera with a 1/2" sensor?

Why are you all so enthused about tiny-sensor cameras, still, in 2015, when we know better? If they were so good, they wouldn't have lost half their marketshare to smartphones. 1/2" sensor cameras aren't exactly flying off the shelves anymore, and for good reason.

DPR is a serious website, about photography and great cameras and gear.
Maybe there needs to be something front and center, to better educate teh neophytes, so as to put pressure and better influence manufacturers. Pushing for better quality from the bottom up, instead of just accepting this outdated configuration pushed top down.

@Timmbits
Deep down, you must love these cameras. If you really really hated these cameras, you wouldn't bother reading articles about them. Let alone posting long comments on these articles and then coming back to post replies to your comments made by others.

RichRMA: Wow! A top-flight DX lens! Now, if only they had a top-flight DX camera to go with it.

No, it's not.

Why Nikon failed to create a true successor to this camera, I'll never know.

A cheap, plastic camera for those who desire cheap, plastic cameras.
Which isn't necessarily bad.

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

taktak91: I recently attended a photography session.
There were about a hundred amateur photographers.
95% of cameras used were Canikon DSLRs.
A few Pentax.
I only saw 2 Sony bodies, one SLT, the other DSLR (old A9 ). No mirrorless.
Only mirrorless I saw was a Lumix.
I don't know about the rest of the world, but here, DSLRs remain the only viable option. Mirrorless are regarded as inferior option for those who can 't afford 'real' cameras, for those who don't know much about cameras in the first place.

OVF and mirrors will fade away for sure. But is that time NOW? I don't think so. And that's the point. If there's a mirrorless that can answer to all my needs, and totally out-perform my current DSLRs, I'll buy it in a second. But such mirrorless don't exist yet, at least in my eyes.

This is a camera you buy if you have money spewing from your mouth.
Otherwise, you should buy a more realistic camera (and a couple of lenses) for the same price.

Viva Santo Nino: Nice review but DLSR is a dying breed. Mirrorless is the way to go nowadays. Just look at the DP homepage, mirrorless sales are way up while DSLR sales are down!

So why waste your precious time reading and commenting about an article on a dying breed? Just stick to mirrorless articles.

Overall, it's another fine product from Nikon that is not a D300 successor.

DonA2: Well, some do like to bitch even if they never owned the camera or even touched it. It's a P&S, small sensor, ultra zoommer !!! It's an all in one package that offers a lot of versatility with very good ergonomics. For sure the images are little to no better than earlier models but it offers more. I must say that price is a touch too high but overall it gets an 8 out of 10 stars.

Culinary arts are fine for some of the people, some of the time. Not everyone require culinary arts for every meal. Same thing for cameras. There are situations where good picture quality become an overkill.

In reply to:

win39: Nikon could jump on this by bringing out a D300 successor that is mirrorless, half the size, with a new mount and an adaptor for the old mount. Then convert all the rest of the DX cameras to mirrorless and start bringing out a complete line up of lenses to the new mount. They have already shown that they know how to build a mirrorless that focuses better than the best efforts of the competition with the N1. But they won't, because they compete with Canon and they have not done it.

Mirrorless will never be a true D300 successor.
Even if your dream camera become a reality, there will still be people screaming for a true D300 successor.

I wish that Nikon will learn something from the 7D Mark II episode, like producing something similar.

taktak91: Judging from the review, it's a very capable camera.
Too bad it's not sold everywhere like other brands.
I won't purchase a $2000+ camera if I can't see it in person first.

>T3, jkoch2

Like I said earlier, you definitely don't live near where I live. Where I live, camera stores still thrive (maybe not as much as before, but they show no signs of closing down any time soon). Also, where I live, you can't just buy something and then return it to get a full refund just because you don't like it. That's why one have to see it in person before making a purchase.

T3, I don't know where you live, but it's definitely not close to where I live. Where I live, you don't need online reviews. You just go to the nearest camera shop, grab a D4 or a EOS-1 or practically anything currently in production (with the exception of SAMSUNG) , test it, feel it, and make a judgement for yourself. Nothing beats reality. Especially when you're buying the real thing.

That's what I don't understand; people spending their hard-earned cash based on online reviews done by who-the-heck-is-he?s. Seeing something on screen and in person is totally different. It definitely spared me from a lot of regrettable purchases. According to this review, this camera is so great that I should just shut up and go buy it, but I'll probably think otherwise after I see it in person.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (813 comments in total)

It's Canon's first real attempt at a `convergence camera`. Judging from the specs, it's far from perfect, and it may not even be an original concept, but we may look back at this camera one day and say `It all began from here`. For better or for worse.

taktak91: Another spectacular product from Nikon that is incapable of replacing my D300, nor my K-5 II, which I ended up purchasing.
Is Nikon suggesting that I should eventually replace my K-5 II with K-3?
That's fine by me, but I don't know how Nikon can profit from it.

>I think it's more a mental barrier

Assuming that FF and primes answers to all and every photographer's needs is sort of a mental barrier too.
I'm sure FF and primes are nice and all, but fails to meet my particular needs.

I'd rather buy K-3 than go FF.
Keep my load light and save money.
