Boss of Sony: What about upgrading from DxO PhotoLab 2?

I still use DXOPhotolab2 and I am fine with it, I use it in conjunction with Affinity Photo.

I came here to read the nonsense. You may all now proceed with the nonsense.

Eric2134: First US company to hit market cap of 2 trillion. They must be doing something right. I think is time to switch from film and Leica M7 to iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The FED does not create money out of thin air, it's money that will have to be paid back plus interest, by the gullible mindless dumbed down masses, like yourself. Today's generation is completely brain dead. The FED has no business in handing out other people's money to wealthy corporations and their share holders.

Look at all those red colored digits, guess who has to pay all that money plus interest back.

pollup: The main problem I'm seeing is the AF, it says 10fps with single area focus only. We need to know the speed in tracking mode, not with a single point.

I never use the cameras tracking system, I track the subject myself, I lock onto the subject then track it using my hands and body.

Melindra: Apart from the 4K60, I can't see what it offers that a much cheaper 7R4 doesn't.

What's there to attract customers away/back from Sony or to bother to stay with Nikon?

You can't just hope to survive with a more expensive version of the already available option Nikon :(

Nikons color science, also better ergonomics, and the vast amount of f-mount lenses, from Nikon and third party companies. Specs alone don't make a photographer. And what exactly is wrong with the Z72 and Z62 specs, any camera build the last five years DSLR or mirror less should be sufficient for most people. Unless you are one of those spec junkies that never settles on anything, and constantly chases numbers instead of using the tool and getting better at your craft.

Razor512: Sadly nikon is horrible at long term growth and investment. With more successful companies, they release a solid product, then they improve it with frequent updates that add new software features, and improve performance. For example, compare the the late cycle nikon updates to fujifilm. Nikon pushed out an update for their DSLRs that removed 1 entry from the time zone list. Fujifilm pushed out an update that improved the speed and accuracy of low light focusing. They also improved subject tracking, and improved the range at which subjects can be tracked.
No algorithm is perfect, only nikon avoids optimization and continued development.

This guy believes that Nikon is on the right track.

My two year old Lexar 128 GB XQD card is more "it did not slow down do to new memory card technology, for people who never used an XQD card before would have no idea what I am talking about" than fast enough for my D850 and D500 "wildlife and bird photography" and keeps on ticking after 100K clicks on it, I used it in extreme heat and cold. Heck I also use a Lexar SDXC II card for over 2 years with no issues, same weather conditions.

Tester_v: I see a lot of prophets, could one of you all-knowing will tell me when the smog will stop coming to Portland Oregon? :)

It's nothing to do with prophecy, no such thing as prophecy by the way. It's called the REALITY of the situation.

Sorry to inform you all Olympus fans and current owners of Olympus photography gear, the music has stopped, Olympus imaging is done for. JIP did not purchase whatever is left of the sinking ship to restore it, this is not what JIP and their ilk are in the business of doing.
Whoever owns Olympus gear, enjoy it while it lasts, don't expect any new gear anytime soon if ever, what JIP and Olympus are doing "selling BS" is to prevent further jumping off the sinking "it already has sunk, a few still have not come to grips with the reality of the situation" ship.
There is no one with two functioning brain cells to rub together that is into photography going to go purchase anything with the name Olympus on it, when the market is already saturated with a plethora of other viable brands to choose from.
All I see in here is wishful thinking. The fat lady is on her way to the stage ready for her performance.
JIP is Gordon Gekko in the movie Wallstreet.

Percy Pufflet: So Nikon have joined Canon in defeating the purpose of mirrorless with these bulky bodies and huge lenses . To say nothing of the weight of this kit and the eye-watering costs. It seems to me that photography will soon be the preserve of wealthy bodybuilders and pros who are paid to hoof this stuff about. For the rest of us, it's becoming elitist.

Give it up already with the size insanity, go buy a point and shoot, no one is forcing you to buy these lenses or any Nikon product. I don't even shoot mirror less, my D850 and D500 have served me well and will continue to do so for a while.
You want fast premium quality glass, that does not exist in miniature form. Get off the soy and you should be fine, you might be able to handle one of these heavy beasts.
I shoot my D850 with Sigma 500mm f4 sport prime hand held, for a total weight of 10 lbs, no problem.

Craig from Nevada: People are taking more images than ever before and they don't want or need a traditional camera to do so. The smartphone offers a single seamless platform to capture and send photos around the world almost instantly. Cameras, for the most part, do not. That is the problem in a nutshell and where this analysis falls short--the market is not for cameras, but for creating images.

It is not much different than the horse and buggy being supplanted by the automobile. Carriages are still manufactured to the highest standards and horses are bred, but they are for pleasure and are not serious modes of transport for the vast majority. A niche. This is the problem that the camera makers face. Olympus is simply an early casualty. Others will follow. Leica is probably best positioned in this market.

And what exactly is your point here. Again, smartphones are not for people who take photography serious, it's a point and shoot device that is easily accessible in your pocket, if you are into taking pictures of your food🙄 or your face/narcissism then the smartphone will do the trick.

The smartphone is not for serious photography, it's a nice thing to have when you want that quick capture, but when I see people posting nonsense on forums like this one, saying that smartphone cameras is the reason for the decline of the DSLR, it's just absurd, the thing is most people are not savvy enough to use a REAL camera, people like pretty much things to be done for them, point and shoot and call it a day.

Smartphone captures.

Tears shown the OVERPRICED Nikon 120-300mm f2.8, $9.5K, really, what was Nikon thinking. Most of it's use will be at the telephoto end, you can get a 300mm f2.8 new for $5K, used in great shape between $3K-$4K. The Sigma 120-300mm , yes it's not as good but it's a seven plus year old design and will still give you fine images, new for $3.5K, used between $2-$3K.

cybertec69: Newsflash to everyone in here with their heads up their rear ends, the economy was a disaster before the virus, and it will be even worse after this, everyone and their dog was living on CREDIT, most people have no savings to speak of, everyone just likes to spend, spend, spend money they don't have. The US consumer "consumerism society" is 16 trillion dollars in debt, that does not include the federal government and every state and municipality, NY was 7 billion dollars in debt before this virus, they say it has doubled since, California 50 billion dollars in debt. Japan has been in deep trouble for a long time with their negative interest rates, the government pretty much subsidizing most corporations by printing monopoly money, same for the US. In the US the government is printing over 1.5 trillion dollars a year, that does not make a strong economy. Most people have no idea what's coming.

You care about humanity, really, then why did you add to the carbon footprint, oh wait, you are the type, look at me I ride a bicycle, I am saving the planet, LMAO, you are saving the planet, the planet needs no saving, the planet is just fine. Like I said in my previous posts, deflection is your specialty. You are just wasting my valuable time.

Nothing but virtue signaling, how do you propose to sustain eight billion people on this planet, and increasing daily.
Whaaaa, my children, the children are not yours, you just like every other species you just made more clones of yourself, if you really cared you would not have produced more carbon footprints, it's your DNA and every species DNA that wants needs to copulate to continue it's existence.
George Carling was right, you are one of those clowns. Whaaaa, my children, it's not about the rest of the species on this planet, it's about you. Keep crying us a river. If you care so much stop using everything that is destroying the planet, like all your electronics, cars, mass transportation, and everything that makes your life easier under the sun. And up-voting your own comment makes you look like an idiot.
And debts matter, they are not imaginary, tell that to your lenders, and tell them you will stop paying your bills tomorrow and see what happens.

You surely are not the sharpest tool in the toolshed, debts are just imaginary, tell that to every empire that collapsed, from the Athenian empire to the Roman empire, tell that to the Venezuelan people.
You are another one of those virtue signaling clowns, that enjoys the riches of the industrial revolution, but just likes to complain so as to show that you care.
Why are you skipping over things I said in my posts, and what was said in the video I posted in my second post.
Why are you avoiding the big elephant in the room.
You are one of these clowns that George Carlin was taking about.

And to Mr. Bolton above, government has no money to give you, what government is giving you is future debt, that you and the unborn have to pay back plus interest, newsflash for the illiterate in here, government does not produce anything, including money. Do you know that the US dollar since inception has lost 96 percent of its value, do you why that is.

Debt is no issue, really, today's generation is completely clueless. Poverty has always been around, you must be living surrounded by a white picket fence, and what this ecological suicide nonsense, do you think the planet gives a rats ass about the human species, one day it will cease to exist and the planet will continue spinning around the sun. If you mean overpopulation, well then, why don't you go to Africa and every third world crap hole and tell them to stop breeding like rabbits "you see rabbits are kept in check by nature/predators", the human species tries to keep everyone alive as long as possible, there it a reason viruses and other diseases which effect every human species/tribe differently exist and has existed and will continue to exist, it's a way for nature to keep things in check", because surely that is not the case "birth rates have been low for a long time now" in the rest of the developed Western world.
