Last year, I reviewed the new flagship Nikon D5. It is an incredible camera, with autofocus that is far more advanced than any I have ever used. At the same time Nikon released the D500 (shown above), which might have been overlooked, but has since received a huge number of “Camera of the Year” awards at the...
Very good review. I was especially glad to read that I was not alone in having a problem with SnapBridge. 🙂
I’m a Nikon fan. Have been with them 25 years. They are making stellar cameras. But it scares the heck out of me that they are loosing so much money at the moment compared with Canon and Fuji. And why o why have they not coughed up a decent lightweight FM2 type mirrorless for us fans. They’ve got the technology and I hope it comes good for them…..but they need to listen to users a bit more.
Rob – Nikon and Canon are both seeing a shrinking camera market and they are both – along with all the other camera manufacturers – selling fewer cameras every year as the DSLRs hit a maturity where they don’t have to be real,aced every 18 months. Nikon wrote off a huge overhead item, which was that “Extraordinary loss” that was all the buzz recently. They are fine. They are still the 2nd largest camera manufacturer in the world. I have a feeling a sweet mirrorless rig is on the way. Fingers crossed.
Thanks Michael, Good to know for all of us invested with them….would not be good if any of the biggies fell over. And yes…Nikon usually take their time but when it arrives it’s usually good so here is hoping on the mirrorless for the lightweight backcountry camera.
that’s cool I have 500d with various lenses I use 100-400 VR Tamron also have a 105mm f/1.4 portrait lens cool for good professional portraits
