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 an old Fujifilm X100.

In reply to:

Sonyshine: I feel most camera makers are guilty of muddled naming and product hierarchy but Canon are by far the worst.

I look at a Canon camera (any type) and do not have a clue where it sits in the range. Base model? Top end? Intermediate?

Sorry Canon. Time to rethink your model naming.

.... good hierarchy should not need explanation.

It should be obvious.

1,2,3,4,5 etc.....

rz350: Uhhh? Who is going to buy Sony sensors? This could be bad for Sony as who else besides Nikon buys the high profit full frame sensors in any quantity? Do you really think Ricoh-Pentax or Leica are going to pick up the slack? Or the medium format is suddenly going to blossom into a huge market?
Nikon needs to get mirrorless cameras out into the market. And ones which have some thought put into them. No more Nikon 1's. And bring their software into the 21st century. I bought a D300s and it was an awesome camera. Way better in so many respects then the Canon 50D that I had. But Nikon has not had the innovation that went into those cameras for a while. They seem rudderless. As they state in their report, they have the D500 and D5 and those are improvements on the cameras they replace, but whither the rest of line?

Apple

I still use mine almost daily.

Now the only camera I own after selling off all my Nikon and Pentax gear.

I simply love it!

In reply to:

Sonyshine: Nice!
I still see no reason to upgrade from my original X100 though.

Exactly. What improvements Fuji have made are good but merely incremental.
None are compelling enough to splash the cash.

On article Our favorite gear, rewarded: DPReview Awards 2016 (271 comments in total)

The only mystery is why it took Nikon so long to make a camera ( D500) that their user base so clearly wanted ( to replace the D300s) and had been crying out for for a very long time.

At least Nikon heard the call eventually....

Not bad but this retired wedding 'tog thinks too many try too hard and end up looking contrived. Just my personal opinion.

Do people still use Flickr?

I am surprised after years of Yahoo mis-management that it is still going. I left it years ago.

I'm not surprised smartphones dominate. That is how the vast majority of people take and share their photographs.

In reply to:

tkbslc: They really need a pancake zoom if they want this to be attractive. Sure the camera is small, pretty and cheap, but then it has a kit lens that would be more at home on a DSLR. If they had a lens like the Panasonic 12-32 to put on it, it would be a really nice setup.

Either that, or bundle it with the 27mm f2.8 pancake.

Or buy a used X100.....

Imaging should be a Sony strength not a weakness.
It will be interesting to see who is still making smartphones in five years time:
Apple, Samsung, Huwaei.....and.....
