With Mobile phone technology moving at lighting speed where does this leave the big manufactures like Nikon and Canon, Unless it is your intention to print big, why have all that money out in serious gear not to mention all that weight and public liability.
Taken witha iPhone 6 Simple images made easy.
Camera, Lens and Tripod and a few other Bits
Because I cannot use a phone/camera without an optical zoom
Because I want a camera that takes a picture the instant I hit the button.
Because phones don't have the equivalent of 14mm on FX
Because a mobile phone does not work well in the low light of a 13 the century church
Because you cannot sell a 100% crop from a mobile phone....
Because I need a viewfinder unaffected by the sun
Because I need a flash that is brighter than a candle
Because I only want to share with people who pay me.
because I don't want to look a pratt.
I always have my phone with me. My DSLR, not always. I am more likely to pick up the Sony RX100 than my DSLR, as it's way more portable.
It's also easier to share photos with people with the phone.
There are times when a DSLR is more appropriate, and then other times, less so.
No, my DSLR's are safe.
Who would have thought that 4k video would be standard on most high end mobile phones, All the DSLRs specs will appear in the future on Mobile phones and all that 1000 of dollars of large photographic equipment we all have, will be as polular as the 10x8 plate cameras.
Phones have come a long way.
And I still opted for a point and shoot for the picture quality, but small size at work.
I am about to go on my 70th birthday treat to Rhodes, What am I taking? Nikon P900 Olympus Tough 4 for water shots and of course my IPhone, All my Pro Gear left at home. due to weight , room.and worry of any damage.
Pano With the MP Even ay 100% viewing it still acceptable
The moral of the story is that people will be people... and argue till kingdom come!
Oh, and that DCS-14N is available used for $600...
Not sure why anyone would get it now over a used D610, but I guess a full frame digital camera in the late 90's is nothing to sneeze at.
I would love a camera that could use cell technology to transfer photo to anyone, anywhere instantly. Bring up a photo type in a phone number and that person gets your photo taken from your DSLR and I want it in a pro body.
I'd rather not tie a data plan to a camera, so I think that's the best way to go now. My phone now has NFC, a Nexus 5x, but I have yet to update my camera body. Anyone willing to chip in for a D7200 so I can try this out?
NFC is just a shortcut to getting the WMU connected to the camera
