I absolutely love the idea of "very short-range means of exchanging data". Excellent! No more damn cables to mess with and misplace.
Illegal to climb that pyramid? If I couldn't climb it there'd be no reason for me to even go there. And just how are my soft boots going to damage that granite? And what's that nonsense about injuries? Just post a sign "CLIMBING THIS PYRAMID IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS - CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK". Simple. And if stupid people die on it... so what! Not like we have a shortage of stupids.
Here we go again! "Wireless Image Transfer to smartphones and tablets" ---BUT CAN IT DO WIRELESS TRANSFER TO A PC LAPTOP ????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me get this straight - the wi-fi can connect to " iOS and Android smartphones and tablets" but not to a regular pc laptop? Are you kidding me?
So this needs an external computer to work? Samsung will eat them for lunch.
You can cover that red mark with a black felt tip pen. You can thank me for this priceless advice by sending me huge bags of money.
From a purely artistic point of view this was impressive and fun. But the question that comes to mind is this: Do you really want to have reality distorted so much? It may be good for a quick thrill but is it good for the spirit, good for the soul and good for the historical memories we leave behind?
Oh, please, gimme a break. That's a very simple shot to pull off.
I've been saying this for years. Basically, if you use a cheap zoom lens on a 24 MP camera your image won't even be as good as a clean 4 MP image.
Aaaaaah.... videos by natural candlelight. Very super cool!
maxnimo: Way too slow. Ideal fps would be 300, but 120fps would be a good start.
sagebrushfire , yes, when you move that hand in front of you it will appear blurry... until your eyes lock on and track it. Then it will be smooth as silk. Do you know why? Because real life is way, way faster than 60 FPS. This is easily seen on a movie screen whenever a camera pans across a landscape or when you watch a moving spaceship... instead of smooth motion you get nauseating choppy jitter.
AliRoust: 24 fps = choppy videos why even bother?
On a related note, my wife is used to the nice, simple washboard and loves the old, classic feel of rubbing those clothes, so why bother with a stupid washing machine!
ryansholl , I'm sorry to hear that you find 120 nauseating as you must be in perpetual pain and suffering since real life is way, way faster than 120 fps. Again, my heart hurts for your terrible pain.
No, I'm not kidding at all. It's so sad to see how many photographers have so little knowledge about any other subject. At 300 fps an image appears like you are looking out of a window at real life in motion. And speaking of impossible... just a while ago 1TB hard drives were impossible, 1GB of ram was impossible, 10 GFLOP cpu's were impossible, and 10Mpixel cameras were impossible.
Cy Cheze: 4k video will be available in $300 consumer models, soon enough. People will shout, "Hey, must have!" But then they will discover that 4k video demands perfect lighting, oceans of memory, 250mpbs bitrates, a $20k viewing screen, and dermatological enhancements--all for the sake of an image that looks the same at usual viewing distance. 4k video also demands a tripod, or super-duper stabilization, or any advantage is lost. The ability to crop 4k video might be attractive, except that the CPU and rendering time requirements are substantial. Easier to shoot with two mere HD cameras: one long, the other wide.
Cheze, were you the one that used to say "4MB of ram is more than anyone will ever need." and "A 486 pc is overkill... no one has any real use for so much speed."?
Way too slow. Ideal fps would be 300, but 120fps would be a good start.
maxnimo: Totally retarded. And just where is the power coming from? At most this thing will fly for 90 seconds, even with the best batteries today.
7 minutes on a tiny battery that I can't even see? LOL.Would that be a fusion battery or an antimatter battery or a magic battery or a divine battery?
"shockproof from a height of 2m"
Is that dropped on a granite slab or a mattress?

Oh my gosh, that's the coffee grinder my mom used when I was little! Fabulous.
