Steve Sanacore: As a pilot I think drones are aircraft that need to be regulated along with their users. Reading all the stupid irresponsible remarks that have been posted here is proof of the wrong mentality. Our airspace is seriously regulated and you can't expect the FAA to let non trained pilots and unreliable aircraft use it without restrictions. Listen to the Diane Rehm show yesterday on NPR for an objective discussion about it. The comparison to firearms is just as silly. People don't go in their back yards and shoot their guns with no concern for where the bullets land or go hunting in populated areas. Drones are dangerous toys but if used responsibly are great tools just like all other aircraft. I think it will only take one plane or helicopter crash to bring an abrupt ban on them all. One of the motives for registration is to at least educate people on the dangers of their misuse. The other is to track down the owners in the case of an accident. It's a good start.
So which is more dangerous, a 2 pound UAV or a 20 pound Canadian Goose? Perhaps we need to register them too? ;-)
Couscousdelight: Amazing, check this :
If you shot moving objects with pixel shift, the moving parts of the image won't be processed, but only the non-moving parts !
Very interesting. Will need to see further info on this.
As a side note, I love Google's translation of Nihongo to English. Yoda speech very much like it is. ;-)
wetracy: A flash unit is not a gun. Stop calling it that!
A Metz 60 CT-4 with an ISO 100/FT GN of 197 is a 'flash gun'. This device really doesn't deserve the appellation 'gun' it's more of a 'fill flash' ;-)
Cideway: So just like Pentax's SP coating that they have been using since '07
Yeah, it wasn't nearly as important when Pentax first introduced the technology some 6 years ago. ;-)
Pat Cullinan Jr: Argh! Rangefinderforum.com has gone over to feeble blue and wan gray type on black.
It's a stampede, I tell you. (In case you haven't noticed, ours is a stampede culture.)
DPR, please don't follow suit. At least, give the user options (that persist over invocations). Rangefinderforum provides options, none of which I like. It's banana-yellow-chalk-white for me. Please.
Yes!!! Finally - I don't have to worry about going blind reading the DPR forums. I'll probably spend more time here now. ;-)
