C'mon guys - this is a PHOTOGRAPHY website, NOT one for TOYS. All three quads you have tested are just that - TOYS. The MINIMUM for aerial video of any vaguely acceptable standard has to be something which can carry at least a GoPro 3, with a stabilising gimble - for example, the DJI Phantom II you mentioned in the prelude. This, versus other similarly priced quads, including perhaps the 550 hexacopter - WOULD have been an interesting article. This one is pointless.
Well that's ONE way to get the seawater off your GoPro after a day's surfing or diving! :-)
Apart from the niggling ongoing fees, the problem with CLOUD computing of ANY kind (not just Adobe, but let's include Facebook as an example) is that YOU, the USER, lose control of your environment.
For example, FB routinely "updates" its user experience. YOU, the USER have no say whether you want to take the update, or stick with what workds for you.
Again, Cloud services can go "down", whether for maintenance or system failure: not much help if YOU, the USER, is on a tight deadline and need cloud access to locate your work or re-authorise your software.
Then, as in the case of Adobe recently, a cloud service might suffer a successful hacking attempt, severely compromising YOUR, the USER'S security, IP and possibly financial details.
The WHOLE reason I (the USER) want the DESKTOP model is that I (...) can control my versions, I (...) can make sure I am secure.
Sorry, but CLOUD means that you CAN'T SEE WHERE YOU ARE GOING and HAVE NO CONTROL. Give me BLUE SKY ANY TIME: my DESKTOP.
I'm sticking to my two fave versions of Photoshop: 7 (which runs on my legacy computers) and CS6. Not going ANYWHERE near CC.
Bleugh! Someone is being paid too much to do nothing useful.
Weird, though, how my PC monitor looked like it was rotating clockwise the moment the movie finished.
There were many scenes in which the cameras evidently did not fire simulateously, with a number of peoples' heads and hands jittering.
Time for Apple to do it properly, I think. Microsoft, that was rubbish.
Perfect Timing! Bought my E-M1 from Park Cameras in Burgess Hill just yesterday; today, I charged the battery and started playing, wondering about the 1.0 firmware in the system - and then here comes this! Serendipity, you are my love!
Brilliant! Am I the only one looking forward to "iPad Pro" - now about 99% more likely this year than before!
Why is there no mention of whether this uses the Canon or Nikon lens mount? ... ;-)
Nice thought - but this needs KICKSTARTER? You can buy strong tiny neodymium magnets by the hundred for a few quid, and use Araldite to fix them to most anything - including lens caps, pieces of wood, tie clips ...
Lovely clear weather for once ... just happen to be in the wrong time zone! :-(
Only just seen this - ABSOLUTELTY BL**DY BRILLIANT!!! Lovely photos anyway, but just WOW! Such a cool idea, some amazing technique, and so well executed!
Beautiful pictures of amazing creatures ...
... but on a point of order re. the biology, "Since the jellyfish in the lake have no natural predators, they have lost their sting" is misleading and wrong.
Jellyfish don't have "sting" to ward of predators - they still get eaten freely by turtles, whales and others. They "sting" in order to paralyse THEIR prey, generally small fish. And without SOME kind of sting, they would simply starve and die. Even if that string cannot penetrate human skin.
Good Spoof ... only one problem ... I would LOVE an OM-compatible Full-Frame digital Olympus model!
I really WISH people writing technical reviews would understand their units. If this flash REALLY produced just 180W of power - for the 1,000th of a second or so that it is illuminated, it would be of no use to anyone. What it DOES produce is 180Ws (Watt seconds), or 180J (Joules - same thing as Ws). And 180J in (say) 1,000th of a second is actually 180,000W.
Interesting, if somewhat heath-robinson device. But this would frustrate me by only going about as high as you could the traditional way, with a small step ladder. If I want shots from up there, I'll buy a hexcopter drone!
Biowizard: Sounds to me like NOW is the time to buy your drone (or two), and enough spare parts to keep it flying for years to come ...
... it is only a matter of time before these devices are suppressed by the authorities.
Nah, you don't get it Juck, do you - you gotta be a Yank. That kinda stuff has been illegal where I live forever and a bit longer.

THAT's no way to use a LEATHERMAN! You should ALWAYS "unbox" with a Stanley Knife with the blade all but retracted ...
Biowizard: There are already many, established, available and reliable "gimble" mounts for GoPro - what does this one have to offer that is any different?
Stephen123 - sure - just Google "gopro gimbal" and take your pick.
