About me:

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.

Great to see serious camera manufacturer competition hotting up!

Dave C 150: As a wildlife, mainly bird photographer, can you just remind me of the advantages of full frame mirrorless again?

Silent shutter, Rapid Frame Rate, Good tracking and accurate focusing with no back or front focus issues, excellent stabilisation, cracking 4K video and a superb WYSIWYG EVF.

I don't get what all the fuss is about.

This article is merely explaining what everyone in the photography business knows is inevitable and which has been building up a head of steam for a few years now.

Technology moves on.

Always has, always will.


I'm typing this out on my Amstrad computer and mono-green CRT monitor - can't abide those new-fangled 486 PC's with multicoloured flat screen LCD screens....

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.
