On Getting off the ground: Cheap drones for photography article (150 comments in total)

A fun Article, for those of us who are new to this topic. The Comments are even more valuable.
A helium blimp, tethered or multi-motored. would seem to offer easier stability, but no doubt there are long discussions of these elsewhere.
Size, and vulnerability to airgun pellets, are obvious cons.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (498 comments in total)

Where the reviewer says:
"Sony cameras have the unfortunate reputation of over-processing their JPEGs, to the point where fine details look 'fake'. During our time with the RX10, this issue wasn't terrible, but there's still some room for improvement.
One area which really suffers is grass and foliage. The example below illustrates the problem, and how you can fix it."
He makes it sound like a problem fixed into the JPEG engine, but surely the Sharpness, NR and whatever can simply be turned down? Why doesn't he say this?
