Aroart: This might be the turning point for those last few CANIKON Photo SHOOTERS TO WAKE UP AND SEE THE BENEFITS OF MIRRORLESS AND LIVE VIEW SHOOTING.. The Video guys have seen the light.. The glass will be the only thing holding them back.. Nikon will no longer be an Icon and Canon simply can not evolve fast enough...

Pro users from Canon or Nikon still have there Pro support in the field when needed (30 years NPS member).

Sony needs to up their Pro service 😉

Photography has changed a lot since digital, same for many other media forms, the camera industry has been declining for several years and i'm sure more magazines will vanish as result of that, internet is the way people use to read information about anything related to photography or fields of interest.

Nikon has come clear, so we can close the DL chapter and simply wait what comes next.
We can speculate all we want, it won't change the fact that Nikon has decided to throw the towel in the ring for reasons they more or less explained.

Thomas Traub: flying drones should be forbidden because it is much more dangerous than most of the people recognize!
I fly an RC-controlled airplane (more of them) and I know that there could be some tricky situations that are not easy to handle. The big difference is that an airplane can be managed if something is wrong, f.e. the engine stops or one rudder goes bad - you have other ones.
If a drone has has a technical problem only with one of the engines or with wind or so on it comes down like a stone. And don't belive that it is easy to fly a drone only because 95 % of the work is done by an electronic-automatism that has a self-correction via GPS.
I know that some of us don't want to hear this or want to face the risk becaus it seems to be so easy to make pictures from above....

If something went wrong, it comes down like a stone - from 300 m above - 2 kg or more ......

And it is forbidden near everywhere ....

Well in that case weapons should be forbidden also ..... they an cause deaths.

wootphoto: "If we use Bluetooth you can use Wi-Fi at the same time."

I never understood why the camera needs to be an Access Point. Why can't it just connect to my home network. Then my phone and camera can both be on at the same time too. No need for bluetooth.

Using Nikon for about 35 years it will always will be my prefered brand.

People making to much fuss and forget to enjoy what they can do today.

Concentrate to learn improve.

On article Sony warns against use of unauthorized third-party apps (182 comments in total)

Sony is selling several great / new models as is and they are running of the shelfs, it seems to me that many people buy them for what they're.
In the Sony forums I've seen a boatload of new users the past few years so it looks the market agrees with what they're doing.

Nobody is forcing anyone to buy what you don't like.
