....well by and large the journalistic quality of reporting has been in the ditch for quite a while....so now the photographic quality will follow....all very sad

Many of you are total idiots that fell for the headline just like the writer wanted you to. Want to hear the statement in context? It's completely harmless.

I did listen to the complete statement and chj is correct....completely harmless....I should not have assumed this site is correct.....shame on me for jumping on the bandwagon......I was completely ignorant

"Part of the thought experiment that gave rise to this new product, the new interface, the terabyte, was a decision that we would not have Flickr Pro anymore. There's no such thing as Flickr Pro because today with cameras as pervasive as they are, there's no such thing really as professional photographers ... certainly there's varying levels of skills but we didn't want a Flickr Pro anymore, we wanted everyone to have professional quality photo space and sharing."

Wow, what an insult! Aren't you embarrassed that you fell for the "drama" that the writer of this article (and others) have tried to create with an out of context quote? Of course the writer didn't provide a link to the full statement.

I did listen to the link you posted and you are completely correct the headline when put in the context of her statement is completely harmless.

.....frankly I expect better in a headline/news article here.....guess I should not assume this site is fair.....shame on me.

....so I guess this proves genius and insanity are very close to the same line indeed....care to stipulate which side ?

For Hobbyists may not be a bad thing, if Pro's are P.O. as they should be.
Perhaps Nikon will update Capture NX2, Canon the same and perhaps there will be again be some robust choices again for advanced editing. Microsoft's old Digital Imaging Suite 2006 did everything PS Elements ever could (and easier) and some advanced things as in PS full.

....don't kid yourself .... if Adobe customers let them get away with this ridiculous gouge Lightroom is next.

The Image Quality for Nikon JPEG's looks top notch....better than my D5100 for sure....takes a Nikon standard SB-400 mini flash to boot.

My only quandray is the price.....for $1,000 I can buy a really nice lens or just about a D7100.

Ah....Laos.....one of the few remaining sources of naive population that can be had for pennies a day.

Heck maybe Ashton Kutchner will get a raise from all the savings.

Perhaps not.... I'm sure Nikon's still hurting from the clean up costs/ environmental damage they were held accountable for stemming from their brilliant decision to a build a factory with numerous chemical, etc. in the flood prone areas of Thailand.

sportyaccordy: 4/3 and Micro 4/3... man people love to be ripped off. APS-C prices for down to less than 1/2 the sensor area and no added portability. I will never understand it

yabokkie....what are talking about ...?

m4/3rds was/is not my cup of tea but output quality from m4/3rds is good...high ISO was bad... simple as that.
"APS-C SLRs are worse than 4/3rds" ...In what way would you say ?.

"a new APS-C mount for Pana".....whats the basis for this ?.

It amazes me how a rightful act can be twisted in some way to vilify this guy.

....he could have done it quieter, he was a mean manager before he got to Japan, he disliked baby seals....blah, blah, blah.

Think of your own career, have you been perfect ?....if you haven't does that nullify the good things you have done?

Woodford did a very good thing.

....another lackluster P&S offering from Nikon, very disappointing....not sure why a company that makes such great DSLR's can't make a decent compact

camera-phone...I always carry one in the glove box of my car-boat...love to use my camera-phone in full auto mode when my car-boat is running on auto-pilot.

LJohnK2: ....18-300 yawn....as a DX shoter, I'd be alot more impressed with the rumored 16-85, f4 or a refreshed 80-400.

The 24-85 is interesting and would seem to be the precursor for a Consumer FX body, but for consumers the future is smaller, not bigger ?.... so not sure what Nikon strategy is here.

I did purchase a complete MFT's setup earlier this year for a trip ...used it for around 4 months....was much lighter, but in terms of size...its still no where near compact..neither is the Sony NEX.

So far the Canon G!X seems to be the only true 'compact' camera with serious IQ....hope Nikon does similar with P7*00, but may eat into the J1/V1, so time will tell.

Olympus is a great example of technical ingenuity being engineering into irrelevancy by incompetent upper management and corruption up to the Board....I'm surprised Panasonic wants to touch them.

As a primary Nikon user I'm envious....Pentax resisted the MP wars and actually provided a useful mid range upgrade option.

Hope they sell well...sweet piece of hardware !

In reply to:

SnapHappy32: Nikon had no choice considering the onslaught of CSC's.
I don't understand the negativity in below comments.

This is a heaven sent cam' for me.
Having a fair selection of Nikon lenses, I've spent a good part of the last months considering what to get as a travel cam.

I've been looking closely at the EM-5, the XP1 and the Nex7.
The latter is supposedly a staff favourite with the people working for a small, local camera company (PhaseOne).

Now Nikon have fitted that sensor into an inexpensive, lightweight body.
What's not to like?

24mp too much? Don't get the cam.
Not enough HD space? Ditto
Nothing better to do? Get back to work!

...IMHO more MP's seems to have trumped things like the nice subtle color transitions of the past 10 MP CCD Consumer Models
The D3200 is like putting a 454 block in a Chevette body package...guess i just dated myself....but seriously forget storage, processing 16 MP RAW images is still a tasking operation for most Consumer PC's....why not same megapixels, better ISO/noise and better control options ? That would be interesting.
