Smart phones today have some applications to process your pictures,(Photoshop and Lightroom for smart phones).

Last October I did a trip to Vancouver and my friends were using their phones to update their status on social media with the pictures we shoot during the trip. It is a nice feature.

My latest camera can do this phone / tablet transfer ,sounds great doesn't it??
The answer is NO ,why because when I've used it, the image quality downgrades too much for me .Why go to the trouble of taking a photo that you are pleased with just to have it looking like it was taken with a cheap phone. Believe me I tried because I wanted it to work, I tried so many apps, some were a bit better than others but not good enough for me.
So I never use it, I just carry sufficient SD cards.

Some do. Most don't.

I remember reading about a photographer taking photos of the BP oil spill in the Gulf, but was confronted by local officials who confiscated his flash memory cards. If he could have instantly uploaded his photos to Flickr or some other service, we might have all seen them.

I agree with you... If you shoot bracketed shots, or multiple bursts how will the phone keep up?
-> I already have that problem using WiFi enabled CF card to the iPad, and that's over WiFi. Bluetooth has much lower transfer speed to conserve power

Geotagging is a nice feature however, and the D500 may pull the GPS info from the phone like some Sony(and others) cameras, without having to attach another accessory.

Hello Nikon-eers, I think the DSLR-Phone connection issue is a fab idea and also in this tech world where almost everything is connected is a total must. Sadly I too do not use this feature, and I believe that maybe this year I will spend some time doing just that, but it is a feature that will not go away but instead will only get better. I don't think it meant to replace a memory card or for final edits, it is a instant transfer capability, gees you cant beat that, especially from a DSLR. This is a feature that will not go away so best to learn how to use it to your advantage or ignore it completely, the choice is yours. Cant wait for spring!!! Enjoy and peace to all.
