gaseouscreature: real photographers don't care about smartphone 'cameras.' while they are technical marvels, they are still toys that fit in your pocket, and take snapshots. try shooting 11 fps or 200mm with one. try shooting a concert or even doing a great job at a wedding. no way. the low end of the market is gone, that's for sure, but pros still have great options, and time will tell but i'll bet the pro options will get even better at a faster rate.

what is a real photographer ? i dont know what it is, and i dont care about it
i am not Cartier Bresson ...
what i know is that millions of people want to have a good camera in the pocket and taking nice fotos with it ...

thats the future ....
we can not put a DSLR into a pocket

Raymond Cho: If 95% of users rather have their smartphones that leaves a small market that they can tap into. Of that 5% many perhaps the smaller lot is high end compacts, I would think at least half of the 5% are into system camears (mirrorless, dSLRs etc). Even on a website like this I gather maybe most of us here are into system cameras than high end compacts.

All types of users enjoy materialistic goods. Digital has been with us since 2004 when the $1,000US body price barrier was broken. So we've had 13-14yrs of quite accessible digital technology. Some have also tried it, didn't like it, sold it off or stored it away due to the low price. Maybe not once but twice.

Often people that I know ask me about camera equipment to buy. You seen them once or twice with it and then you don't. Many don't enjoy photography but just to take photographs of friends and family and kids and their food. A few might want something under 1lbs, 12x zoom, 1" sensor but that's not gonna happen soon.

sorry but i dont understand ?
i think we can have a smartphone + Compact + DSLR

and we can use every device in some conditions
there is no oppisition
what is the probleme ?

what we are talking about here is that Nikon is taking the same way as Kodak .. they dont feel the market and they dont care about the consumers ...

best regards

Jon_B_Good: I was recently at an event where a number of people were taking photos on their phones. The results I saw from all the phones were rubbish compared with the results coming from my old Nikon D7100.

I use my phone camera for every day use in good light but it simply can't get the results when you want to capture the action.

If Nikon doesn' t go mirrorless soon it will get squeezed out of the market as Sony drives forward. Sony didn't have the lenses but that's changing. Canon users have happily switched to Sony too.

Canon, Sony and Nikon rely on photographers replacing their cameras on a cycle.
For many that used to be 2 years. But the D500 was too expensive and D7500 was deliberately sabotaged by only 1 card slot. Not everyone can afford replace all their lenses if they jump ship.

So I'll stick for now, but am loathe to purchase new lenses as Nikon is not sending the right signals that it will have something for me.

So come on Nikon. Step up to the plate, show me something!!

in 5 to 10 years do you people wants DSLR ?
i have a d7100 ans the fotos are top ... i totaly agree
but it is heavy and bulky, for street photography i prefere my RX100

i hope Nikon did something like that ... but nothing coming ...

grandmasterphill: Why does everyone assume that Sony is a success story? I have yet to see Sony dis-aggregate the profit numbers for their ILC's from their imaging sensor business. It hard to believe that 7 different iterations of camera in 4 years is a money making business strategy.

People knock Nikon and Canon for not innovating but maybe some praise is due for knowing when the show is over.

i dont care about Sony ...
i like Nikon cameras since a long time
the Colors and the sharpness
for me much better than Canon or others
i realy hope They can continue doing superb cameras
but They need to adapt to the market

sorry for my English, i know it is far from perfect
i hope everyone can understand me

camera Market is continiously changing
the camera companies has to feel the market and the consumers wishes for the 5 or 10 next years
all the big compagnies loses the camera phone market , except Sony with theirs sensors ....

some now are focusing on the DSLR Market ?
is this the market of the future ?

DSLR market is for professional or experts, that is not representing much people, can a big Company like NIKON live only with DSLR consumers ?

people now wants a good smartphone cameras and expert compact cameras (Sony did it with their smartphones sensors, and with the RX 100 and RX 10 séries, pana LX 100 and .....)

clicstudio: Every time I overlook at someone with a Samsung phone, I see the same color shift depending on the angle of the screen. Whites look green or blue in the most horrible way and the screen is inaccurate that it hurts. Try taking photos of red things on a Samsung. They look pink or orange. Oversaturated and oversharpened. Like thoe fake looking HDR photos. The human eye doesn't see like that. Apple alway had a more realistic display and camera. The world is not so vibrant.

LG and PIXEL colors are much more acurate than Samsung
i am waiting for the Pixel XL 2
Apple is going crazy ...
