This will make the wait for a price drop very long

Bird eyes are amazing - landscape shot looks a bit noisy but I think it is more that we see individual water drops of the fog.

surlezi: I feel sorry for all these people and families who've been taking all their family photos for years on cellphones and smartphones.
It's been maybe 10 years that many people are taking pictures on cellphone instead of cameras. If you can call it pictures.

What they have is most often crappy 640x280 mess. Even recent iPhone pictures are garbage in many situations.
Pictures of their kids and loved moments that won't be worse seeing again on anything, not even their 8cm x6cm phone screen.
Even disposable cameras did better in their time.

Shameful article.

In the end you need to enjoy the process of taking a photo to warrant the purchase of better cameras and the time spent on learning how to use those cameras properly. If you do not enjoy it, you are better off with a easier to use solution that delivers a lesser quality. Without a passion for photography, you are still taking pictures.

In the end most people just want to have a picture with quality being secondary and the knowledge on how to achieve a good picture being of no interest to them.
For a photographer the photo is the result of the interest in the mechanics behind taking the photo.
Two very different approaches that in the end produce a picture of a scene. I can understand both, sometimes you just need a picture, but it is more satisfying to create a photo.

Some people just want pictures will move to the smartphone, people who enjoy to take photos will stay with a camera.

On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (481 comments in total)

45MP, D5 AF, 4-5FPS FF and 8-9FPS in DX crop with 6-7FPS in 1.2crop.

KInd of a high resolution camera with a D500 built into it. And maybe not go above 4000$ with the price.

seahawk: The future has arrived. Time to dump the DLSR systems.

In the end this is the same as the arrival of the first SLRs with an AF system, the first DSLRs and so on. There were always people saying that the new technology will never dominate the market.

In the end ever DSLR user will have to make the switch to the future one day.

Nikon 28-300FX. Yes it is a superzoom, yes it is a cheap answer, but every other choice means either saying goodbye to birds and planes or to landscapes.

And mirrorless is on the way to achieve that for most applications.

In reply to:

straylightrun: Big surprise. Next is Micro Four Thirds and eventually APS-C before FF becomes the standard in a few years.

What I do not understand is Nikon´s desire to not listen to the market.

Another enty level DSLR? It will still be bigger than the mirrolrless competition and I see not much room below the D3100 / D3200 in features or price. On the other hand Nikon refuses to satisfy the action shooters in the DSLR community for a long time now. Apart from the D4 the cameras are slow (D800) or artifically crippled (D7100). I have seen so many D300 at the recent airshow all attached to 70-200,70-300, 80-400 or 300mm+ primes. I bet those users would surely go for a D400 or D750 (up-date of the D700) in a heartbeat. And this group will probably still buy Nikon DSLRs and lenses for a very long time, as neither mirrorless offerings nor cellphones will ever satisfy thier needs.

This scheme also ends to hope to pick-up an older version seond-hand for less money, so that you have one for non-commercial work.

I would be fine with the subscrition, if they would do like Microsoft did and make a Home &Student version available.

In reply to:

seahawk: Well, if they want to down that route, than maybe it is time to think of a "home and student" non commerical version for a reduced price, like MS is selling for MS Office.

MS takes away some software from their home and student version. It misses Access, Outlook, Publisher and only comes with OneNote, PowerPoint, Excel and Word. And it puts a note in the files, that it is not for commercial use.But as far as I can tell it sells well.I knew many people who used illegal copies of Office, but since Home+Student is there, few take the risk.
Adobe could also remove a few minor features. Like remove Bridge and limit the use use of Lab and CMYK color modes (if you use it it puts a small watermark in the graphic "Home+Student Editon not for commercial use"). I think that would work.
