yslee1: Ok people, add HDMI out and a remote jack and we're in business for a drone camera.

And maybe a simple av out as well.

riskinhos: 100$ for 2 pieces of metal??!???????? wtf?????

Not to belabour a point, but once you pay for office and workshops, employees, machinery, and all the other related expenses that come from running a business, you end up marking those pieces of metal quite a bit. But I guess you know that and maybe keeping your overhead low by working out of your garage.

And yes, I think they are expensive too.

photo_rb: First in its class? I guess that means f/2.8 because the Canon 16-35mm f/4 has IS.

Gotcha! I was a little slow to pick up because the difference between 2.8 and 4 is not important for my work but I understand that it could be to some. Thanks.

Really really? :-)

Then you know that pieces of metal cost a lot when they are used photographically.

These might be useful as "UAV" or drone cameras where weight is very important. I wonder if there is a way to stretch the WiFi signal to several hundred feet or more?

photo_rb: I may be missing it, is there any place that tells us which lenses are used on the studio comparison cameras?

Ahah! Thank you so much!

Let's see, if you put the camera on a tripod and the wind knocks the tripod against a tree which hits the shutter button, you do not own the copyright. Do I have that right?

Very nice results but on looking at it and reading about the technology it doesn't seem much different than the kind of image mangling that Photoshop and other composting software is doing although not on video. I would be looking forward to seeing this on video software like Premiere Pro or FCPX.

photo_rb: The question I have is if the monkey took the photo, why should it be public domain?

Well based on that, if the photographer sets his/her camera down, and the wind blows a branch that changes the camera angle and fires the shutter, the resultant photo is public domain. I disagree with that.

waxwaine: I don´t know why but I can´t feel interest on drone shoots, at least knowing they are not made directly by human, but just selected from a bunch later.

This is similar to setting up a camera near a wildlife spot and monitoring and firing the shutter remotely at a safe distance.

Well I will give you a contrary example. Gay marriages.
