The world was crying out for another Messenger Bag. :-)

These are really great/beautiful images.

(If you can't take great photos with a Canon DSLR, it's not the camera's fault.)

Nice photos!

I'm disappointed that we don't have any (USA red) fox in the neighborhood. Fox are such cute canines.

What a concept, actually talking to the people that you photograph, rather than just doing "street stalker photography".

AbrasiveReducer: Could't they put a whistle on it so if it starts dropping really fast, everybody looks up? Like when somebody backs up their minivan at Costco.

(seriously) Perhaps there could be some kind of automatic parachute system if the drone malfunctions. That would slow its descent, so it wouldn't hurt anybody.

(joke) Every time I ask "which drone is powerful enough to carry a pressure cooker", someone from Homeland Security shows up at my door. :-)

Hey, camera companies aren't supposed to announce new cameras in between major trade shows. It's just uncivilized. :-)

"Yellows and skin tones tend to be greenish" -DPR Cons

That doesn't sound like Gold Award to me.

As a practical matter, DPR has excellent, detailed, reviews. I just ignore the overall percentage score and the award.

"Frankly, Sony would benefit from hiring a firm dedicated to UI to re-design the physical controls, menus and button/dial interface completely from scratch. It pains me to see such refined technological achievement placed into hands of photographers, only to hear 'I wouldn't shoot it because I'm constantly fighting the ergonomics' or 'it just isn't a pleasure to use'." -DPR

That's what happens when a camera is made by an electronics company, rather than a traditional camera company.

Smaug01: Why do you guys insist on calling it (and others) 'compact cameras?' Just because it is not an SLR, that doesn't make it 'compact.'

Looks pretty sweet, but at Sony prices, their menu system should be GREAT; it should beat Panasonic at everything, considering they ask hundreds of dollars more.

"Why do you guys insist on calling it (and others) 'compact cameras?"

I guess it should be called a MFLC, Mirrorless Fixed Lens Camera. MFLC doesn't exactly roll off the tongue though. :-)

Nice!

Some drone videos I have seen have been marred by massive amounts of distortion. It's nice to see that they are capable of something more realistic and pleasing to the eye.

rleue: I am the former Nikon user turned to Olympus. Someone asked which Olympus as he thought they were all toy cameras. Well I bought an E-M1 and an E-M5 with all of the pro lenses. Now you can think they are toys, but when you use an Olympus you don't have to spend all of your time correcting for color and exposure (like with Nikons)...Olympus is also way FUN to shoot with! Just so you know, I pondered for months before switching from Nikon. I wanted to have a new Nikon. REALLY! I waited forever for the new Pro DX camera. I had been using Nikons since 1969. When it was obvious that Nikon gave up on its customers, I gave up on Nikon. Haven't looked back. Also, my brother and I also very excited about the Fuji equipment. I have my Xpro2 on order. Fuji is a company that caters to its customers. They consistantly impove their offerings. If Nikon wants to send me me a D500 and a couple of good lenses, I'll test it. If it outshoots my E-M1 I'll buy it.

@rleue:"Olympus is also way FUN to shoot with!"

Yes, a camera's "fun factor" is totally underrated. Some cameras with pretty spec sheets are reportedly not much fun to use.

That guy third from the right, with the longish hair, looks very unhappy. Maybe he was in charge of Nikon 1. :-)

The copper and silver plates are a nice touch. Somebody at Canon is thinking about details that the average consumer will never see.

If Flicker sells to Google, it will end up being discontinued. Google is good at that.
