cousin itt: If it were £299 I'd be strongly considering it.
I'm sure I'm not alone with having a Nodal Ninja gathering dust because even with my widest lens I've got to take 57 photos for a 360'
Yeah, the image quality needs improving in all areas, but if this catches on future versions will probably have video too (when tripoded).

When I got the NN I was all into super-zoomable hi-res panoramas. They're great fun but time-consuming, especially if you want to use hdr.
I'm definitely considering a Samyang fisheye as a compromise. Should be able to use just a monopod for outdoor shots too.

shouldn't the camera be facing the other direction in the case?
the sensor points upwards when the case is upright which will allow dust to settle on it

hiro_pro: i have seen too many companies that require constant authentication crash. now you are stuck with unusable software until they can verify subscriptions again. the gaming industry has already had huge fails in this arena.

The other week I tried to run the one and only Steam game I have. Apparently too long had passed since I last played it and it made me jump through some hoops. Despite being fairly smart with a good dose of experience those hoops eluded me (I think their email server was playing up that day, though their service status said nothing of this). I uninstalled Steam.

Charge me a penny a minute I have their app open (with no connection fee) and maybe I'll bite.

On French newspaper publishes issue with no photos article (203 comments in total)

star shooter: My photo editor once said to us photo cadets: "....while words can bring joy, sadness, to making a Government or bringing it down, a photo has more impact, as it is the camera that carries more weight than the pen..."

Journos always knew that a photo will always accompany their story as it was the photo that caught the eye first, not the words.

Humans have always been drawn to an image than words. As far back as the cave people, humans have scratched or drawn, things to what they witnessed. This was the beginning of photojournalism.

While words can not 'paint' the sheer beauty of a mountainous valley of colours nor the gasping delights of the Milky Way, the camera can.

Books, magazines, newspapers publishers would go bankrupt over night if they took out photos. It is the camera - be that movie or still, it is that device that carries on the tradition of being able to describe what it saw. While journos are a dime a dozen, there can never be enough photographers.

I think journalists like being called 'journos' as much as photographers like being called 'photogs'.

Pictures and words are often greater that the sum of their parts.
