Hope Apple using a I7 Phone body will produce same body in a new IPOD Touch series but with more GB Capacity and expandable by micro SDXC card. Unfortunately not in market for another phone as current one is good enough but a replacement Music MP3 player I am interested into my current IPOD Nano 8gb

IT is good and produces great output and good complement to any photography's kit but doesn't replace a camera including Good Compacts like Rx100 and excellent mirrorless / DSLR's.

But some of us don't like the some may say overhyping of products like Sur'face with claims that it could / will replace traditional devices. Plus prices of this new tech including 5D , Sony Lenses, etc, etc are getting out of realms of what people can afford at once and in go - that people may put things on credit / building more personas credit up and getting into difficulties on things that may or may not be Revolutionary just Evolutionary.

Beautiful but if you mislays some screw and components before putting it back together you're knackered.

Terry Breedlove: The best digital camera out there right now. Sweet i want one

Not really - but Smartphones do compliment my Photo gear, however don't see much innovative in terms of Camera in this expensive Iphone 7 announcement and not much innovation in this release.

Roman_93: In Germany the 7 plus starts with 899€ W-T-F!

Pricey and still low capacity and Apple is charging a premium for higher capacity models..

livelong: So, Apple just released a entry-level DSLR killer.

No they haven't no is it a Mirrorless killer - still low res at 12mp where other makes like Sony are producing Smartphone sensors around 16mp - 22mp. Must say Smartphones now do produce some good images and handy to have one to hand but quality of DSLR / Mirrorless are still in different league.

Camera these days look and deliver ace A1 results, what I am interested now is looking at the software and camera features to deliver Creative Photography like:-

* Timelapse Video
* Photoshop Montagues that allow still / moving images to be embeded - not sure on the movie side yet with PS CC ?
* Video 1080p - 4K
* Apple Moving Pictures (short videos)
* Video transistion slides incorporating Stills / text / music / Video / Timelapse video, etc... (Proshow Gold now bad for this)
* Video cutting, editing and re-encoding (Videoredo not bad for this)

Hope we see Canon and Nikon improving their own Raw / Properitory software to add in further filters and other cool things above - rather buying shed loads of additional software.

And to project our creations not only to PC but to share to Smart devices like IPads / Phones/ Tv / Multi media consoles, etc.

raztec: Someone at Nikon has finally woken up after some deep hibernation.

However, in typical Nikon fashion they have decided to cripple each camera in one way or another. No ND filter in one and no EVF the others.

This should have been only 2 cameras with identical feature sets except the lenses. An 18-50 and a 24-200. Both with EVFs and ND filtes and macro capabilities. I might have even bought both.

I think think the RX100IV has all the boxes ticked and isn't another cash grab like these cameras.

RX100 is a great series and wished Nikon started the DL series back then and hopefully the image quality and 4K Video will be ace. Hopefully the DL will not have a limit or overheating issue with shooting 4K Video. The Rx100 MK 4 is limited to 5 mins to protect sensor from overheating.

Random Asian Guy: Gee, coming from a Canon and Sony user. The DL18-50 actually interests me for a holiday camera.

The range is much more useful as on holidays you usually want to fit in a lot of scenery. Unless it's the Safari or Whale watching type of holidays.

Small sensor with fast lens is ok. Small Sensor will keep more of the scenery in focus especially at night with the fast lens. I've seen some pretty silly full frame 1.4 photos where you could barely make out the background location.

But I think leaving out a flash is pretty bad idea. On holidays it's annoying having to carry an external flash and charger. Hope there is a review and sample pictures soon.

True on your findings and the only External and light flash for travelling that I can think of using with this would be the SB-400 although you would need AA-batteries and charger and th Sb-400 in relation to the size of the body would be out of character.

Excellent Nikon... could be replacing my Rx100 MK 1 with one of these models 18-50, 24-85mm once price comes down and image + video quality samples are released. Although the Sony Rx100 still produces excellent images and is it worth replacing with a new model ?.

I really wished Nikon brought the DL range out same time as the RX100 and RX10 / Panasonic FZ1000 were announced

richardalanfox: No RAW?

Only B700 and the only one that is worthy of a look at over the Sony RX10 Mk 1/2 and the Panasonic equivalent. Was expecting a Nikon equivalent of Rx100 to be offered by Nikon complete with Raw and only one I think it is - is the A900 which only comes with JPG capture.

thomas2279f: perfect now and b700 has raw and 4k which is good...

Hope the Mods correct above but according to Nikon website the B700 does have NRW Raw capability, wished Nikon added raw anyway to the B500 / A900. I'm not sure whether the A900 is a competitor to the excellent Sony RX100 ? and if it is - it should have had Raw capability.

Good launch and some more competition which is good and hopefully will mean cheaper prices.

Looks good but upon release a bit expensive - think I will leave updating my RX100 and A5000 until prices come down to decent levels.

Is there a good 4k Video editor out there which works with Windows 10, doesn't cost much and with D5/D500 producing separate files for 4K of 3 min each automatically together into one video file >?

noflashplease: Looks like another "industry group." Kinda like HD-DVD? Other than Sony, Panny, and Samsung (assuming they're still in the camera business?) I don't see a lot of participation from actual camera companies?

On the consumer end of things, this announcement doesn't matter at all. As a previous poster stated, the limitations of HDMI 2.0 are the only specs that make a difference.

As far as the production end of content.....who cares outside of the film industry?

Sorry for the vocal rant - not directed at anyone or the good author "the Squire" but the consummer industry in general... so they say (last bit for the Sony Lawyers...)
