I love it when I get to see sample photos in the exact same situation I would want to use the camera! Nice shots, I'm jealous of the photo trip.

Horshack: This is all fine and good except that a MFT drone @ f/2.8 is really equivalent to a full-frame drone @ f/5.6. I like the shallowest DOF possible when my drone is invading the privacy of my neighbor's yard.

your idea about a mobile strobe stand is a good one, and I believe I did see it here first, but it was several months ago. I recall reading about drone auto positioning software with the intent to use if for strobes. Exciting times, I can't wait to see what comes next.

why is the camera strap muddy along with where it connects the the camera, but clean on the strap where it says Canon (which is so clearly positioned it doesn't look like an accident)? Not saying this is a disguised advertisment for Canon, but that looks very strange to me. I'd have wiped the body and lens off before the logo strap it is was my gear.

I agree and believe these types of action cameras are on the rise and of interest to more and more DPR readers. I'd love to see both reviews of these devices and a forum dedicated to their discussion (I requested this to DPR a couple weeks ago as none of the other categories really fit).

I promise when I buy one I'll buy it from GEARSHOP if DPR helps me evaluate these :)

On photo Dinner Time in the Fast Movement shot for anything challenge (7 comments in total)

Great shot. I'd really like to hear a technique explanation also. I assume that the shot is sharp because it was shot in near darkness where all the light is from flash, therefore shutterspeed is irrelevant. Camera/flash fired from a motion sensor? I understand that with the speed of the reptiles tongue, it is almost impossible to get this shot by "luck".

On article Nikon 1 System First Impressions (248 comments in total)

It will be interesting to see how this works out for Nikon. For those who say it will fail, remember the D40? On paper, it looked like a dumb move for Nikon. Who would buy this body without a focus motor? Everyone on DPR hated it. The price of used D50s went up.

Why was the D40 such a success? Because people shooting on full auto were getting outstanding photos. I can see "soccer moms" (pardon the term) getting this thing with the 10-100, shooting 10 in-focus frames per second of their kids playing sports, and turning the 55-200IS shooting Rebel moms green with envy. Time will tell.
