Nikonb: A few years ago a similar principle had already been proposed

I did not see a date on that article.

You can achieve the same effect by just putting a jpeg on a hard drive for 5 years. It's called bit rot. ;)

On Graava action cam automatically edits POV footage article (46 comments in total)

Interesting concept. Not sure about the implementation. There is a motorcycle ride video example on their website. I found the original and auto-edited versions both boring.

The Name is Bond: This is the fault of those prats who published unflattering pics of Beyonce.

The terms are reasonable, get over it.

Neez: In taylors defense, they spend millions putting a tour together, with the set, the makeup, costumes, lighting effects and the models(taylor), and you think you can just waltz in and have full rights to any pictures you take in the venue????

I don't think it's hipocritical at all, don't expect to take pictures and make money off of them without either compensation or approval. I imagine if you're going to sell a print for a local newspaper for $100 they don't care and will approve. But if you sell an image for thousands, they'll probably want their cut which is fair.

What apple was doing was different, they weren't going to pay anything and offer artists work up for free. Just to further apple's business off the hard work of others. That's not fair at all.

Geez Neez - I never said anything about the photographers. I was only replying to your statement "... they spend millions putting a tour together..."

Marty4650: The concept that public buildings can have copyrights is bizarre. If governments don't want them photographed perhaps they should erect tall fences to block then from view?

But no one is actually saying these public buildings cannot be photographed.

They just want you to obtain "permission" which probably means you will pay a royalty fee or a tax in order to photograph something that public money paid for.

Socialized governments can never have enough money to spend. I bet the Democrats in the USA are watching this closely.

"Socialized governments can never have enough money to spend. I bet the Democrats in the USA are watching this closely."

Actually the White House just went the opposite way.

Francis Carver: Maybe this camera is okay for taking stills at great lengths, however the servo zoom motor on it is noisier than a 12-year old coffee grinder with its bearings on the lam. So you can use this CoolPix for taking stills.... or for taking MOS silent videos... or sound take videos if you are using an external audio field recorder some distance away from the high decibel zoom. Not a deal-breaker for those who jsut must have that large 2000mm reach and than small 1/2-inch class sensor.

Lol. Just watched a Clanger episode on YT. Hilarious. Sounds like the narrator is the same guy that did Teletubbies!

Paul Farace: Another reason my telescope is collecting dust in the closet. I remember looking at the moon on the summer nights in 1969 and thinking that for now, it's a virgin moon, and if, God willing, our Astronauts were successful in a few weeks, the moon would forever be changed. I wish NASA could bottle that excitement from that long ago summer, and use it today.

I saw a documentary that the Internets are a hoax.

Very nice video. But what are those two darker bands across the top hemisphere of the moon/scene?

What does the WiFi get you? Streaming 1080p?

Nice images! Although there seems to be an interlude there where we go off topic.

@Neez Do you think these tours are for fun? They net orders of magnitude in returns. Spend millions. Get back hundreds of millions.
