Adobe - please add this to Photoshop! It's long overdue...

They will be on to a real winner, if they can make it work with more than just Pentax lenses. Is there a universal mount that would work?

If any photographer is going to take this seriously as a camera, it needs multiple lenses. Just one fixed lens is already out of date with the competition.

nitroman: So Canon are going to expand highly developed cameras and lenses for professionals. Shame most professionals now can't afford these expensive new camera systems!

That means putting up prices - not sure the market care bare this.

Terrano: Typical, give your photos away for free while the owners of Unsplash get rich.

It was also from advertsing reveue on their website.

Astrotripper: Dating back to 19th century? For those we're talking public domain.

Wonder if Getty claims copyrights on works that have long slipped into public domain.

They do claim copyright and charge a fortune for public domain images out of copyright. What do you expect from the company that destroyed the incomes of so many artists and photographers?!

nitroman: Can't believe it's still only 6k! 360 and VR really needs 8k. It should at least be an option in the menu. Disappointing ...

I have a Qoocam 8k and it's very good. However, there are a lot of bad ones out there that have thermal focus issues, and the batteries can bloat if not charged correctly. I also have a Insta360 Pro 2 and the Qoocam 8k is almost as good. Overall, Qoocam 8k set the bar for portable 8k 360 cameras. I think Kandao were also the first to introduce LCD screens on 360 cameras.

nitroman: I bet we will never be able to use Third Party apps like Litchi if we use the flashy new DJI controller. DJI always limits its software. I'm also rather concerned about how soft the images are top left. I wonder if this is due to fast f1.7 lens. I hope it's just a bad sample.

I just checked this with Litchi and they advised me that they are not sure the Mini 3 will ever be supported as DJI have just introduced a new SDK. So there is life in Mini 2 yet !

pca7070 - that would be awesome as Litchi gives me so many more features. I guess it'll be a year or so before Mini 3 SDK can be released. We live with hope !

WhaleShark: The still images are largely underwhelming to me. Many seem very unsharp down the left side -- a decentered lens perhaps? Was the drone damaged or is DJI's quality control not what it should be?

This is very important and the images are clearly soft on the left. This is a deal breaker for me. I hope DPReview can clarify the issue as i fear the faster f1.7 lens is less sharp.

Lensmate: Hi Kara
Do you have info on whether the Mini 3 has red/green position lights along with a strobe light feature for night flight?

Apparently it has much better position lights - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmRVFkNYDzs

Good news for all alalogue enthusiasts. Especially as big brand prices are rocketing.

And the great photography rip off continues ... It seems it's only rich hipsters and rich amateurs who can keep up with all the price rises these days.

nitroman: Another 'run 'o the mill' consumer quality release from Ricoh Theta. Every camera they release seems crippled before it's launched. Amazing, as Ricoh were one of the first 360 camera manufacturers and we all hope for better.

My point was that they don't exactly push boundries, and they could do. My Qoocam 8k is amazing and two years old now.

They're also range finders and i much prefer slr.
