I have gone back to more fundamental photography now that I have sold my DSLR and Mirrorless cameras. I'm enjoying the simplicity and delights of a Panasonic FZ300 bridge camera.

Richt2000: Nice minimal winning image.
Shame the horizon isn’t straight though. Could have fixed if in 2 minutes...

Should have gone to Specsavers.....

Personal computing is converging towards a single device.

Today the smartphone dominates and tablets, PC's, cameras etc will slowly disappear.

The device of the future may have holographic displays for example so it could be small enough to be pocketable but project big enough for easy viewing.

One thing is for sure, technology does not stand still.

Nothing wrong with the camera but Samsung could see which way the overall camera market was headed and also knew the potential of growth in mobile tech.

It was clearly the right hard nosed decision by Samsung to get out of cameras and concentrate their efforts elsewhere.

Oh dear!

Nikon have made sure no-one will buy their other DSLR's this is so good.

Maybe DSLR manufacturers should just make one model now?

If anyone wondered if it is true that most photographers are grumpy old misogynists they should read this thread..... 😂

It doesn't matter that misogynistic middle aged male photographers think this is a petty , silly, little, politically correct, storm in a teacup.

What matters and what will damage Nikon is that many many other people, women and men, have picked up on this in their social media threads and now perceive Nikon as an out dated, male dominated, dinosaur of a company.

More very bad marketing from Nikon.

PETA have shown themselves bullies and have done the animals they are supposed to be fighting for no favours.

Nice! But a 5SE will still do me. A great little iPhone at a budget price. This would mark me out as a fool flaunting their obscene wealth if I waved this around in public.

Sonyshine: The D850 is Nikon’s big old petrol guzzling limo compared to Sony’s sleek Tesla. It is the last fling of the bulky old tech dslr industry.

Nikon should be moving forward with exciting new camera technology. Not more iterations of an old dinosaur.

Yes it will be a great camera but it goes to prove that Nikon’s days are numbered if they cannot develop new, innovative and fresh cameras.

Nice bike, I had a few Dukes and Guzzi's never an MV in my time.

No , still addicted.

But better than being named after the Taiwanese F4 boyband I suppose....

Oh I agree.

Your old 'gas guzzler' will do more miles and go further than the Tesla.....

BUT the old gas guzzler, the old dinosaur, the lumbering big brute stuffed full of old technology ( Nikon ) will get overtaken and left behind as consumers move over to the new, sleek, exciting and radical technology being employed by Sony, Apple and others.

The days of mass market DSLR's for consumers is over and soon only old men will continue to use them.

Until they die out too.......

Lee Jay: To me, the whole point of an ILC is FOCAL LENGTH RANGE. Wake me when a decent cell phone has something even resembling decent focal length range (i.e. 24-100). And even that would be insufficient for travel. For that, 16-400 is nice, but 180° horizontal to 640mm equivalent is what I usually use.

Folded lenses. Its coming.....

Vegetable Police: Video is where these phones still lag behind mirrorless, and that's where camera manufacturers should focus their attention. Most people don't take photos to print, they just want to share them on facebook. Smartphone pictures are fine for this, but that shallow depth of field function on the iphone doesn't work in video. Add to that the inferior image stabilization, low light performance and audio capturing capabilities compared to an entry level mirrorless like the Panasonic G85, and smartphones aren't quite there for pleasing video.

Shaky 4k footage with terrible audio isn't exactly enticing for $1000. Fine for those blurry background photos of your hamster though ;)

You need to do your research. Some of the latest 4k mobile video is amazing - and they are using rigs, mics etc just like a dslr camera video - real proper pro work.
