When we talk about Nikon's full-frame cameras whose specifications are higher than the D760, it turns out there's a rumor that Nikon is not going to name its high-end full-frame cameras with the D850's name, but will be called the Nikon D820. Apart from this latest camera naming problem, you may need to know the whispers on the Internet about the specifications of the D850 or D820, ie as reported by newsledge.com, as follows:

  • The rumored announcement date is slated for the summer. Maybe it’s Nikon’s true 100th anniversary, though I’m holding out hope for a pro mirrorless system.
  • Most likely it will be called D820 (D850 is still a possibility)
  • Nikon is already planning the marketing material for the new camera
  • The sensor will be between 45-46MP.
  • The D820 is expected to be better at low and high ISO compared to Canon and better than the D810
  • The D820 could come with a new and improved version of SnapBridge. That’ll be a relief and will have to be one hell of an advancement.
  • No built-in GPS
  • Tiltable LCD screen
  • The memory card slots will be the same as in the D500: one SD and one XQD
  • AF system will borrow the system used in the Nikon D5.

However, according to cameradecision.com, Since the 80D has an APS-C sized sensor and the GH3 has a smaller Four Thirds sensor, Panasonic GH3's lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will generally be lighter and smaller than the EOS 80D lenses. Was it true?

Of course you have to prove yourself by making a few photos from both cameras, such as portraits, macro, scenery, and what if you use when making a photo in low light conditions. In addition, it should also be compared if used to photograph sports like car racing, football and other action photographs.

It will be interesting to be discussed or debated in photography forums on the Internet. By the way, let's look at some important aspects of the D500, so that we get more detailed information.

According to cameralabs.com the D500 is also the long-awaited successor to Nikon's previous high-end DX body, the D300s, launched a considerable six and a half years ago. The good news is Nikon D500 significantly improves every aspect of the D300s, and there is a lot of improvement, as desired by the owners of Nikon. The D500 features an enhanced level of robust build quality, offering the same amount of rugged weather sealing as the Nikon D810.

If you already have a collection of Nikon lenses that still your store, then you will be pleased to have this new DSLR camera, because there is a focus motor in the D500, so it works with every AF lens made since 1986. Nikon D500 is fitted with the same AF system as the Nikon D5, the Multi-CAM 20K AF sensor module, with a separate dedicated processor for AF function.

I believe, among the enthusiast Nikon there must be very creative or make creative photographs. As with Nikon D810A, then Nikon do not forget to install Picture Control system. You can maximized this feature to create photo with this fantastic creative mode such as: Standard, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Flat; selected Picture Control can be modified.

DSLR camera vs mirrorless camera: A new perspective

By    
The photographers are now free to choose the camera they want, whether a DSLR camera, prosumer cameras, pocket cameras (point-to-shoot or compact camera), smartphone cameras or mirrorless camera (Micro Four Thirds / MFT). Several of these options is very appealing, so there are options in terms of comfort, ease of use, quality of photographs, and of course from the aspect of price.

The DSLR camera users, especially professional photographers generally have more faith in the sophistication and quality of the resulting images of a DSLR camera. If they want to try to use a mirrorless camera, they just use it as a second camera, not the main camera. Whereas mirrorless camera also has a resemblance with a DSLR camera, where you can replace lenses according to your subject or shooting needs, which certainly cannot be found on a pocket camera or prosumer cameras.

Accordint to the digital-photography-school.com: there are many different types of mirrorless cameras on the market: some have interchangeable lenses, others offer a single built-in lens, and some with their own types of image sensors and other characteristics that are suited to more niche markets. But the one thing they all have in common is the absence of a flip-up mirror. Yes that's right, the mirrorless camera does not have a flip-up mirror like you find on a DSLR camera or a digital camera (analog) in general, so that mirrorless cameras can be designed smaller and lighter.

You'll find plenty of lively debate about the differences mirrorless DSLR cameras. Panasonic and Olympus are still solid with their plans to remain actively developing a mirrorless camera, as well as Sony. Meanwhile, Nikon and Canon especially, not too many have a line-up of this type of camera. But there's a surprise after Nikon acquiring Samsung NX.

It seems to be there is great hope that Nikon will maximize the technology that they get from Samsung NX. This acquisition will certainly strengthen their mirrorless camera innovation. Whether Nikon will be able to overthrow the throne of Panasonic and Olympus? Is Canon and Sony also will be concerned with the consequences of this phenomenal acquisition?

There is also an interesting question, whether the mirrorless camera is the future of photography? Although professional photographers are still found DSLR camera will remain superior for photographic needs, both for commercial as well as art in the field of photography. Then, why the mirrorless camera to be very interesting to compare with DSLR camera?

When Olympus launched the Pen E-P1, the world of photography changed because it had attended a camera with a small size, and certainly lighter than a DSLR camera has come up with a wonderful ability, the lens on the Olympus PEN E-P1 can be changed like a DSLR camera , Because of their smaller size and not as heavy as a DSLR camera or a full-frame camera, the mirrorless camera an attractive choice for new photographers.

Olympus and Panasonic has managed to tempt the novice photographer to select a new type of camera with a simple slogan, that you can get a good photo quality, even on par with a DSLR camera. And you can get it all from a small camera. You can also change your lenses on mirrorless camera to suit your needs. If you are on vacation, you can bring a small camera with a compact size, so you can lighten the weight of your travel bag.

You may be surprised or do not realize that your smartphone turned out to be "categorized" as a mirrorless camera. Based on the existing article on digital-photography-school.com, revealed that all smartphone cameras are mirrorless, as are most point-and-shoot models. Instead of a tiny little viewfinder that you hold up to your eye, you can see a preview of your image right on the phone or on the back of the camera itself.

An advanced smartphone is able to support the activity of photography, of mirrorless cameras is superior to the camera on a smartphone. In the next few years the engineers and designers of digital cameras will always innovate to develop the technologies and features on the camera, either on a DSLR camera, smartphone or on mirrorless cameras. The owner of the camera is expected to produce a more affordable price, so that the world of photography is always evolving unhindered expensive price.

Whether Canon would be more serious for developing a mirrorless camera in the near future? As with Sony, Fujifilm or Panasonic, Canon actually have the human resources and advanced technology to develop a mirrorless camera division, so that the photographers have more options to develop their photographic talents. Will there be a better competition in the field of this type of camera, the Canon vs. Nikon?
