If you wondering about why I don't have a smartphone. I dislike phones in general. Don't ask me why, I just straight up dislike phones even land line ones.

Richard Stallman alert tongue.gif On a more serious note I've only ever used the wifi feature on my D7200 once, and I've had that about 15 months now. I do have a smartphone, but I'd much rather wait until I get home to edit/upload photos

Yep there are not so many people who might use it but regardless it could be an issue for some. Wifi is not only great for pulling off photos but for remote control. (with tablet or notebook)
It is a pretty great feature for timelapse and similar tasks.

Also possible with cable but well wifi is standard by now and alot more convenient. 3rd party apps like qDslrdashboard are very useful.
However this is not possible with the d500. You need an android phone and bluetooth le for remote control via wifi. 3rd apps will not even work.. (current state of the matter)

I have read alot about people loving their d500 but coming from a D7xxx, D5xxx or D750 the new "wifi" caught them off-guard.

Well, I hardly use wifi since I don't even carry around tablets, laptops, etc. Only time I use an electronic is my desktop at home. I just not into lugging electronics around on me. On very rare occasions my 3DS may get lugged around, but that is even very rare for me to do.

Funny thing, because I usually go about without stuck to looking at tablets, phone, etc. I see all the silliness others do daily. Like people walking into poles, etc. Which right now is occurring a lot atm.

I hate that crap so freaking much. I be looking sometimes at some mini drones, but blasted things need a stinking smartphone and app to fly them. Pisses me off. What happen to that being a option instead of a main requirement and having a good old fashion remote radio controller. mad.gif

I rarely use the wifi on my camera but when I do it is quite handy to have. Transfer to my iPhone and share immediately. I have a canon 6d I do this on but same thing really.

Yeah, I may just keep the D90 or give it to my parents. Right now, have to figure out a good place to nab a D500. Good thing the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 did not impress me. Can use some of that money on the camera instead after I fix my truck first of course. rolleyes.gif Stupid thing seems like to act up when I have to get ready for long trips.

So you do care about wifi on a camera?

No. Like I said, I don't really use wifi. So I don't care if the camera has it or not.

On my current cameras I just take the SD card out put it in my USB stick card reader and go.

Personally I like wifi on my camera.

The problem I have with usb sdcard readers is that they so easily lost. I don't keep it attached to my phone. and my tablet (Pixel C) uses a usb-c connection so I need two different card reader depending on which device I have on me at the time. Even when you do have it, having to juggling 4 items (phone, sd card reader, sd card, camera) just to show someone 1 picture on a better screen is colossal pain in the butt.

On the other hand, just turn on wifi, throw the camera over your shoulder, whip out your phone/tablet and download the picture. Done.

My only complaint about wifi (on my camera) is that it's horrifically slow. transferring one image is fine but multiple take an unseemly long time. That's where usb sd card readers shine. When i'm on trips where I don't have access to my main computer, this is where I use the sd card readers the most.

I don't put my pics on my phone. Hate trying to show off pics on small screen. Drives me nuts. So instead, at home I use my USB stick which stays near my desktop at all times to off load to my 3TB HDD. If I need to put it on something mobile it goes onto the USB 128GB stick. Or depending if someone wants to look at it on their phone. I have a dual 32GB stick that can do both full size USB and mini.

For pros that are marketing actively through social media, and want to get at least a couple of shots on FB or Instagram before or at least "within the hour" of guests in weddings & events, easy linking to a phone makes for convenience. It is important for the pro to get out the pic liked / shared the most, the fastest possible.

Although WiFi is great in theory for that, I do like card readers more because of speed and I would think a OTG cable (android) + card reader or a lighting -> SD card reader (iphone) would work more reliably. Fall back to WiFi if you are sure which pic you want or you've forgot/lost it in the moment...

WiFi makes for great remote controlling capabilities tho...I love it with my 6D + DSLR Controller, EOS remote is also ok.

But you said you could care less about wifi, so that implies you already care a bit.

What I'm getting at is, you should say "I couldn't care less" instead lol
