Hmm. I thought cryptocurrency was just for geeks, criminals, and speculators.

No Nikon, by pricing it at $12,399.95 rather than $12,400.00 , you are not going to make it sound inexpensive. :-)

sirhawkeye64: i sort of wonder if one of the drone companies will swing in and grab them, and integrate the cameras into their drones? Or possibly one of the camera companies (Nikon or Canon, since it appears Sony already has / or is working on an action camera).

Nikon launched three action cameras in 2016 (KeyMission), and they were a sales flop. Canon is glad that they didn't go there. :-)

sbu: A lot of commenters have a hard time to accept that the major underlying cause in the downward trend is due to 99% who just use their smartphone as camera. Not me - smartphone cameras takes excellent pictures nowadays and when viewed on a phone or a tablet device iq is similar to ilc cameras.

The future for dedicated cameras are the enthuatist segment. Entry level is dead. So no - we won't see cheap cameras at 500'$ that can match or even near-match sony a7riii or other highend cameras.

@sbu: "Entry level is dead."

"...our entry-class [ILC] models have performed beyond our [sales] expectations." -Canon, October 2017

If camera companies were to go enthusiast-only, they would price many people out of the market.

This highlights how dumb it was for Nikon to get into that sector, with KeyMission.

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S First Impressions Review (326 comments in total)

"Panasonic also claims the GH5S's larger pixels and 'Dual Native ISO' sensor will mean it shoots significantly better footage in low light."

Canon's 4,000,000 ISO color movie camera has pixels that are 7.5X larger than normal, so that makes sense.

"The new 10.2-megapixel Digital MOS Sensor..."

No 20MP, no sale! :-)

Interchangeable-lens camera shipments are following the same seasonal pattern as the non-earthquake-year 2015, so the November decrease in shipments is no surprise. In keeping with the same pattern, expect December numbers to be worse.

Canon's forecast for the ILC market as a whole is that, for 2017, it will "be down 1% to 11.4 million units", compared to 2016.

(sarcasm) Following GoPro with KeyMission was such a great sales success for Nikon, that perhaps Nikon will start making drones too.

james s. kennedy: Good. Drones should be very tightly controlled, as should firearms.

According to one online source, GoPro stock was 93.70 in September 2014, and was 7.52 today. Oops.

"Nokishita typically releases leaked image like the ones above only a day or two (if not hours) before the official announcement, so stay tuned for more." -DPR

I wonder if they are "official leaks", done by company marketing departments, to get a little pre-announcement "buzz".

Gesture: But there are no new markets for us. Signed, Canon and Nikon. Action cams, specialty cams, adventures cams-big market.

Nikon released two action cameras (KeyMission) in 2016, and they were a sales flop. Canon is glad that they didn't go there. :-) I suspect that that market is pretty saturated.

Now that they are boldly marked [SPONSORED] before you click on them, I don't mind sponsored content. (In the past, I complained that they weren't clearly marked.) Interesting content is interesting content, even if the intent is to get the viewer to buy a particular camera.

"Traditionally, like most websites, DPReview has generated the majority of its income via conventional 'banner' advertising." - S.E.

So, moneybags Amazon is too cheap to be financially supportive of their own website? For them, financially sponsoring this site would be a minor marketing expense.

I don't see anything Hendrix about this strap. It's not even available in the color Purple Haze.

Those are now called "otheries". :-)
