Ad B: Everybody has to stop being a policeman, I wouldn't like to be on every picture of every "photographer".
Than look who's complaining again...
They are just doing their job, the most of them (as in the rest of working world) are doing their best.
I wouldn't like to come on everyone's pictures, just doing my job.
F..... world.
Is everybody going to make pics of police, fire brigade and ambulance work, hoping to be arrested and get a lot of money, doing nearly nothing??
F..... world.

Grammar police here, we need to talk about your post. There's a lot wr.....HEY! WHY ARE YOU FILMING ME??

embie: Old wine in new barrels.
Is this all that Nikon can do for their 100th anniversary, a special camera cap and a fancy strap on two existing camera's and packed in a clumsy suitcase ?

It's February. FEBRUARY. There are 10 months left in their 100th anniversary year. These were put up for display for marketing purposes, they haven't even said if they're going to try to sell these or not.

shooter45: If you own both cameras, what is the point to buy this special edition then ? Seriously Nikon ... better cap, case and strap ? Are you really serious Nikon ? Because I won't buy again the D500 even though I am so happy with it .. and not because I do not have the money to buy it but because my camera is already the same that you are offering to celebrate your 100th anniversary.
Matter of fact, I do not care about your strap because I own a better one; I do not think that a camera cap is something that we use everyday and regarding the case, I also have a case that I can carry with me even if I travel in an airplane and it does hold all of my equipment.

Who said they were even trying to sell this? It was a display at a photo convention. Do you also assume the glass cases they had were going to be for sale at some point, too?

Everybody has gotten their panties in such a bunch over a couple of custom cameras made for marketing purposes.

XeroJay: In sorry, but as a professional, am I the only one that thinks this is stupid? I keep hearing about Nikon being in financial trouble, and this is what they're wasting their time with?

It's called marketing. Every company "wastes" money on marketing.

digilt: " The minimum focus distance of the 24-70 is 37cm/1.5in and it uses 82mm filters."

37cm is closer to 14.6in. , not 1.5in.

Also your word!! Where are our going?!?

brycesteiner: Another rumor published by DPReview?

iPhone rumors get clicks, it's that simple. If 10 people click their rumor articles and you click them 0, there going to write for those 10 people and not you.

blurredvision: Just bought the new NIkon 70-200 for $2800 and I come home to find my CC package went up $5/month. This is ridiculous! Now I have to take my lens back because Adobe has bankrupted me. Unacceptable.

LOL...comparing a few bucks for a software subscription to my mortgage? Please. I pay $10/month for LR and PS. If my subscription went up a whopping 15% and I had to pay $11.50? Pfft, whatever.

Leandros S: Title needs to read, "help him keep track of your gear".

Posts negatively about an app tracking his gear, has 10 cameras listed on his profile on the same site he's using to complain.

Windeguy: I love all of the agitation and debate a simple app like this causes. Or is the agitation and debate really because of the guy that wrote the app?

You already know the answer.

AngularJS: They would better fix gazillions of existing bugs and optimize the code instead of doing this BS.

Yep, because this is the only thing the entire Adobe corporation is working on. I heard they even pulled in the phone operator to submit some code to fix the modulation issues they were having with this.

PLEASE ADOBE, WORK ON ANYTHING ELSE!

TwoMetreBill: Pollute the environment, use film.

Get real guys, none of you (including me) have any realistic idea of what impact film or digital has on the environment. Shoot what you want.

cloneimaging: I recently started shooting medium format this year. I tell ya my photography and knowledge developed more in 10 months than the previous 8 years of just shooting digital.

Well sure, because digital is easier. If you want to do anything the manual way, you're going to learn more by default.

On article Nikon brings its D5600 DSLR to the US (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

noflashplease: I really can't see what this brings to the market, other than much maligned "Snapbridge" connectivity feature, which is more of an embarrassment than a selling point. These days, Pentax is ahead of Nikon in terms of liveview autofocus with the on-sensor phase detection of the K-70.

Sad to say, but I wouldn't recommend either the D3400 or D5600. As far as I'm concerned, the D7200 is Nikon's entry level model. Anything below that isn't worth buying.

Sad to say, but the D3400 and D5600 are probably better cameras than what you were using 5-6 years ago and they're considered entry level now. They're fine cameras and do what they do well. Just because you demand better doesn't mean these two models are crap.

In reply to:

theSUBVERSIVE: Wow, lots of hating, I didn't expect that.

It's positive comments about a camera phone on a website visited by people who pay thousands of dollars to take pretty pictures. I would readjust your expectations, sir. :P

EdwardWestonNYC: Re: Reference view" Capture One has had this ability forever. Don't get me wrong. Its great that Adobe added it, but its not anything new other than a fancy term added to it "Reference View". I maintain 15 years in this industry - that Capture One is a far better RAW processor for the power user BUT lightroom is the far Superior collection/overall manager. Wish someone would combine the best of both and then take $$$$$ from me for doing so.

I'm sure CaptureOne added something at some point that was already in Lightroom, so what's your point?

tom1234567: Just got rid of Adobe LR AND PP today
I now use on1Photo Raw instead of LR,
and the new Affinity for windows released today in place of PP.

so Adobe no more monies from me,
the LR done nothing for the Fuji jpeg problems
I have the Fuji X-T2 and the D7200 and the new programs handle the files with no problems
I think a few more users will be leaving Adobe soon

These numbers are useless without knowing how total picture uploads faired. Sure, DSLR photo share went down year-to-year but if total photo uploads went up tremendously, with the vast majority of them being smartphones, then you could be looking more at flat growth on this website.

If in 2015 they had 100 photos uploaded and 30 of them were from DSLR, then DSLR had a 30% share. If in 2016 they had 200 photos uploaded and 40 of them were from DSLR, then DSLR had a 20% share. You can either report that as a 33% increase in DSLR uploads year-over-year or a 10% loss in upload share year-over-year. Depends on what message you're trying to convey to your audience.

AbrasiveReducer: Ouch. That's where a lot of the profit is. It's like lenshoods.

Even with these reduced prices, they're still making a killing.
