Canon should have used UHS-II SDXC slots. The 2000x UHS-II SDXC cards are very reliable and more than fast enough with much lower cost.

UAV's have replaced helicopters in most movies . Here is the first scene from the Shining shot with a helicopter :

With an UAV like the Yuneec TORNADO H920 Multi-Rotor you could shoot with mirrorless cameras like the GH4 or full frame Sony A7 series.

In reply to:

shooter mclens: Disappointing for a $1500 camera. in that price range, performance should be on a par with similarly-priced competition. I could see $800-$1000, but that price point is hard to justify for what's at best an enthusiast camera. Nice photos though.

What other $1,500 4K UHD 1" sensor superzoom has a fast 24-600mm F2.4-F4 FFEQ APO lens ? The 4K UHD Canon XC10 also has a 1" sensor but no viewfinder and a much shorter and slower 24-240mm F2.8-F5.6 and cost more. For higher quality stills I use my Sony A7r or a6300 with Zeiss FE lenses when I don't need to go past 200mm.

The RX10 Mk III is a real eye-opener. Sony has pulled out all the stops to give us a camera that honestly gives us a one-piece alternative to a DSLR and several zoom lenses in a much smaller package.

This camera is as fast and just as good optically as my bigger cameras, and I don't have to change lenses. No, its sensor isn't as big as a DSLR's, but sensors are so good today that it doesn't matter anymore. By using a somewhat smaller sensor Sony has been able to design a lens around it that does things that no larger lens can do. Sony has decades and decades of experience making video cameras with long-range zooms, and many decades of sensor experience (I was an application engineer for Sony's CCDs 25 years ago!), and they've put all this together into one fantastic camera.

If you need a camera with a great ultrawide to ultra-tele lens, this is the best there is. I can't get a lens with this broad a zoom range for any DSLR.

georgehere: Sony is trying to find a niche and in all the wrong places. The lens is so slow, it's practically useless. They should have tried to make a 8.8-40mm/1.7 lens (24-105/4.8 FFEQ) for that sensor and that would have been selling like hot cakes.

Wow, what a clueless post. This is a 4K UHD 1" sensor superzoom with 24-600mm F2.4-F4 lens. Go look at the more expensive Canon 4K UHD 1" sensor camera with much shorter and slower 24-240mm F2.8-F5.6 lens . And the XC10 has no finder.

I prefer my Samsung Gear S that has the largest display of any smartwatch and my Android 6.01 Samsung Edge Plus with 5.7" AMOLED display that is larger than the iPhone 6s plus display but is smaller overall.

sh10453: This is almost a pocket size lens when compared with the Canon 5200mm, 220 lbs (100 kg) monster. f/14, though, so most readers will pass :)

http://www.canonwatch.com/meet-the-canon-5200mm-f14-tele-monster/

That lens is 50 year old . The 1200mm F5.6 Canon lens was $180,000 at B&H for a used one.

The 1700mm F4 Zeiss APO must cost at least $10 million.

It looks almost as big as my 42.5mm F1.2 IS Leica on my GH4.
