Forget camera upgrades. Buy a good quality cellphone now!
Check the reviews of a Huawei P30 Pro's zoom quality and night mode, you will be surprised.
I would say, a $1000 smartphone worth about $2000 worth of Dslr/Mirrorless gears.
If you don't mind to carrying and switching lens, a tripod and an external flash all the time, use what you are having. Otherwise, learn to shoot raw and post processing will yield more keepers.
I switched to Fuju x-T10 with 18-55mm recently, which weighs 1.7 lb for multiple days travelling.
My D610 with 24-85mm weighs 2.9 lbs will be used only for events or single day trip.
The picture quality of both are quite similar, but the Fuji feels so much lighter especially you have to carry it for a full day.
Check the best smart phone cameras on Utube, Huawei(P30 Pro), Samsung Galaxy 10, or Iphone X, one of them exceeds the others by a big margin, esp on night view, wide angle and long zoom.
If you spend around $1000 +/- $100 on one of the best smart phones, you will get at least the photo quality of about $2000+ value of Dslr/mirrorless gears.
If you plan to spend more than $3000+ on gears, that could be a different story.
The brand of phone has nothing to do with this. I dunno. Maybe you’re a plant from Huawei trying to drum up support for your company. That might explain your tenuous grasp of the English language.
If I work for Huawei, then I can afford a D850 with power zoom, but may be not my back for long haul.
Here is an interesting comparison of Huawei vs Samsung vs Apple of their latest modelhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7dwBw09MLQ
I am using a BLU phone about $150, the reason I don't want to use expensive phone as my main camera is I lost and broke them, or I find their batteries deteriorating over 2-3 years.
Next week, I will be travelling to Turkey, Greece, Hungary and Romania with my newly Fuji X-T10 with 18-55 2.8 on it first mission. Hope I will get decent pictures.
As others have noted above I don’t believe a cell phone camera will replace DSLRs.
Also, please note that there are two FBI issued notifications in 2016 on HUAWEI network hardware stating that the 3800A router had the ability to store and forward client’s transmitted data over the Internet. The concern is real.
With that I will stay with my Nikon!
Have you noted that the US government is tapping other president's conversations of friendly nations.https://www.eff.org/nsa-spying
The US government is eardroping over your US phone but not if you use a Huawei.
Totally missing the point. Maybe it’s a great cell phone camera, but it’s not gonna replace a good DSLR or MILC for many things.
I agree I missed the point that money, size and weight are no object for you but not the majority of non-pros.
My point is that I have limited budget, and I just want to take decent pictures while viewing on my 40" monitor. I don't want to travel anymore with over $2000 and over 6 lbs of gears.
My point is the P30 Pro while under $1000, it can do just as good picture quality if not better compare to at least $2000 of dslr cameras with lens. So please don't trump me with your $5000 gears.
And the trend of the gap will be widening. This is only my prediction and I don't make a living at predicting.
Of course, it 'might' not be as good as your gear at zoom 100-400, but I think the comparison is not far off, but the phone can do a lot more, besides cost and weight less.
Here, I am talking about the P30 Pro only and not just any smart phone.
Yeah, not very convincing. Sure it zoomed a long way, but show me the actual images. Nothing was sharp and the dynamic range sucked. The worst thing these was they perpetrated the worst crime of cell phone cameras, vertical video
Hand held from my Panasonic G9 with 100-400
Wow, hat is impressive, but about >2.5 the price and 5lb vs 0.5, the size is obvious.
If you can’t get better shots with your D610 than a phone, you need to reconsider your choice of hobbies.
I agree with you before, but after watching reviews like this, I have second thoughts.
It is about the latest Huawei P30 Pro, the camera features.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zytha7T7-GE
I am sorry to see that most people replies are about Dslr vs any smart phones without the knowledge of the said model.
If you think the zoom/iso capability of your gears is better, please let me know what are they, how much money and weight.
I eould not under any circumstsnces give up my REAL camera espely aChina'sChinese brand! That company is part of China's vast spying apparatus
I agree, its camera zooming capability is a strong spying apparatus.
How did our government listen to the phone conversations of other presidents? Because they use US equipment. If they use Huawei, US government can no longer do that. That worries US.
As soon as a cell phone camera can capture this I'll get rid of the 10lbs. of DSLR equipment that did it from 150 ft. away.
That day may come sooner than you think if not now.
What you brag about is the zooming/iso capability of your camera and pro-lens; that is what the P30 Pro best at; consider 10lbs vs 0.5 lb and $$$ vs $900.
Because of the US censorship, the price drops. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zytha7T7-GE
There are thousands upon thousands of working Professional Photographers around the world that make their living with DSLRs, not cell phones. To predict that "the camera age is doomed" is absurd. Same as claiming that the DSLR age is doomed.
When somebody can capture this image with a Smartphone, I might pay attention.
I am not a sky shooter, so I don't know what kind of gears, shooting technique and PP is required to produce such shot.
I don't have expensive Zoom gears either, my best zoom is a Tamron 200-400 5.6 on my D610. And I don't think the zoomed picture quality can match that of the P30 Pro. And my now travel gear is a Fuji x-T10 with 18-55 2.8, mainly to save my neck and back.
Now I know how a Huawei phone can be used as a spying tool and why Trump don't want you to use one to spy on him.
Something better is always going to come along. When you're ninety, you'll be able to talk about big-bpx cameras and your great-grandchildren will be amazed.
so you don't find it true, scary or fiction?
