newe: Wondering if this is a nice upgrade from my D300...not sure size and $ of D500 necessary. Any comment?

I wouldn't mind video, but I have a Canon VIXIA HF G30, which likely is far better than the others listed, but is a pain since it is another unit. I would like to upgrade, as I have always loved the D300, maybe I will try the 750...but who knows.

Will dpreview be updating its D500 review to include this new anniversary edition version? Pros will need the new info!

This website has gone completely downhill...From obsessing on crummy camera phones and the move to fridge phones, not sure I'll be able to click the ads anymore.

BobT3218: I don't understand how such tiny camera phones produce pics so good compared to our orders of magnitude larger DSLR's etc. DSLR's should blow camera phones out of the water. Are we so bad as photographers that we can't exploit the advantages of DLSR's?

Why compare dslr and phone cameras??? Because the result is the same...a picture

We need trucks because they do a different task. Why compare a car and a truck? If you are driving 40 mph on a highway you should be arrested....or run over by the truck ;-)

In good light, yes camera phones are great. But my aged D300 blows them all out of the water for low light, action, quick recompose, fast AF etc.

What mobile phones have I used? Samsung S7, Nexus 5, Nexus 6p, iPhone 6 and the new Pixel. All take nice pics...but put them in low light or action like basketball, hockey, etc and there is not contest; DSLR by a number of miles.

ttran88: Early reports are coming in saying the fingerprint scanner is in a very bad position. People's photos are ruined with fingerprints. You would think Samsung being an ex camera manufacturer would have noticed these quirks.

Common sense as a source??? Now that is fake if I ever heard a fake! Let us know when your unit arrives and when you will post a review. Common sense tells me it is never.

Are oven mitts an option or are they standard equipment?

Badbatz: Yep, perfect for super-wide angle, extremely multi-frame processed selfies sporting really big, "thinking" foreheads, prominent noses, and really tiny ears located in the back of the head. And it will be updated to Android 7.1 in the fall of 2018 :-)

Isn't dpreview a camera site..? Isn't Samsung G8 a phone ..?
The fact that something has a horn and a nose doesn't mean that it is a rhinoceros...

@Hennesy camera phones still cannot take action/fast moving nor do they have zoom. At some point maybe. In great light and ideal conditions yes they are good. But how often is every day ideal?

dennis tennis: Apple iphone is the only phone worth your consideration. It is an American company, after all, Once, all manufacturing returns to Bless America, The quality and cost of iphones will be affordable to those coal miners who will soon be fully employed. Furthermore, all Samsung phones must be banned from the US for fears that they will be used by Muslim terrorists as explosive devices. We can't risk a single America life over the use of Samsung's devices of mass destruction.

Fake comment!

For $50-$100 why not? I'd pay that. Call it Note 710 and take a page form Nikon's book.

HowaboutRAW: The Davinator,

You're missing my point about FLAC versus WAV. The problem is the computer (CPU, not DAC) has to work more to play the FLAC files, and that process adds system noise. It's easy enough to hear the difference--though you or I may not call it noise.

It's not like WinZip, if you get a zipped file, you uncompress that before you use it for whatever purpose, while with FLAC the uncompressing is done at each playback.

The flac vs wav debate has been pushed by the audiofools for years with no proof whatsoever. Converting flac to PCM adds virtually no overhead to anything resembling a modern system. Go over to Hydrogen Audio where this myth has been debunked many times. Since then the audiofools have tried to pushed DSD, which is nice, but is mostly sourced from PCM, and now MQA. Just more audiofool tomfoolery.
