Pixel Peter: The SnapBridge appsite only mentions Nikons D500 and 11 third party cameras. Why the H not my Nikon D750?

I downloaded it just to be sure...and yes, it looks only for Bluetooth devices. No option at all for wi-fi.

I was wondering when it would happen...

Hurts my eyes. I mush prefer the dark color since it's easier to read and view for a longer period of time.

I have it already but honestly, I rarely ever use it. I played with it a few times exporting photos from Lightroom into Nik for some black and white editing, but I quickly began asking myself, why am I doing this? It was easier to just stay in Lightroom (keeping the image as a raw file) and doing my tweaks there and still ending up with a final result I was very pleased with. It was fun to play around with Nik for awhile, but lately it's just wasting my disk space.

D200_4me: It's a beautiful place. I've seen some really nice images from there (like those from the trips Michael Reichmann organizes)...but for me, that place is overexposed. Much like Iceland with that darn abandoned airplane I keep seeing in the Iceland photography 'workshop' photos.

I'm already a subscriber ;-)

OK...(post focus feature) if you're only shooting JPG.

I guess I got a late model because mine was purchased in Autumn of 2015 and the Nikon site says my serial number is not affected by this.
Either way, the sky is not falling.

I do a lot of nature/garden shooting around my own house since I have gardening as a hobby too, but I thought the competition was about garden photos? Many of these are landscapes and general nature photos, not technically in a garden. Maybe they should just call it a nature/plant competition.

mod2001: Still don't get it with the "old" X-Trans, it lacks any defined sharpness (at least with ACR). Definitely no competition to the GR. And looking at the RAW file size, the X70's RAW is nearly twice as much as the Ricoh. Why?

I did enjoy my Fuji cameras that had the X-Trans sensor, but I'm definitely not sold on the idea that the X-Trans gives you better sharpness, etc. I recently bought a used X100 that does not have the X-Trans and I think the images from that camera are sharper and more detailed in general. Also, the images from my Nikon DSLRs are more detailed than what I was getting out of my Fuji cameras (X-Trans). Yes, I know the tired argument about raw shooting with X-Trans and how Adobe doesn't handle those files the best, but even when I shot in JPG, I was STILL seeing more detail in my photos from cameras without the X-Trans. I have no bad feelings about the X-Trans, but I do think X-Trans is totally unnecessary. My 24MP D750 files are crunched more than 2x faster in Lightroom on my PC compared to the 16MP X-Trans files from my previous Fuji cameras and the files are usually smaller too. The debate for me is over. I don't mind using X-Trans, but there's no good reason why they should keep it.

This is more of my style for street shooting ;-) Vacation in Yellowstone ;-)

The response here has been brutal. ;-) Personally, I like the Peak Design straps/slings. Very comfortable and functional.

In reply to:

agentlossing: My takeaway is that underexposing to -1.7 EV is too much for this sensor, as in the waterfall pic. Slight underexposure is fine, however, and detail retention is pretty impressive. Lens appears to be fairly high-resolving, details aren't super crisp but you can tell they would stand a fair amount of microcontrast adjustment.

Twin Peaks ;-)

D200_4me: Small body, large lenses ;-)

I've used all the sizes/systems and for now I'm back to a DSLR and VERY happy. I just found it amusing that so many people keep talking about size but as soon as you put a pro grade lens on even an X-T1, it's going to be big and you need the battery grip to make it more comfy. I've used DSLR (APS-C and FF), Oly and Panasonic m4/3, Fuji mirrorless and I presently still have a Sony a6000 (which I love for video and a camera to have in my work backpack). People get way too worked up over the size and weight issues. Use what works best for you and forget about the size and weight (unless you have health issues that prevent use of a large/heavy camera).
