To eschew the traditional four-prop configuration for this would be amazing and a breakthrough. For me, the question is: will it provide any tangible benefits? More torque? More speed? More stability? Color me interested.

Either this is going to result in some really ugly ads, or the photographers are going to have to know how to light very, very well and the models will all need perfect skin/hair/teeth/etc.

dash2k8: I can read the critique/criticism and it feels like one or both of the newlyweds is an experience photog. Practically all the stuff they're saying is spot on, though some reach into picky territory.

@10sj03, they made no false statements in their critique, so I don't see how they're not spot on. I did mention that they're too picky.

@lightandaprayer, even experienced shooters need someone ELSE to shoot them, yes? I can't think of a renowned photog shooting his/her own wedding.

@eyeport, but if the NAME of the bride is obscured, what good is that? One can only appreciate the art if the basic technicalities are observed. In a wedding pic with their names on the wall, at least one has to be able to see the name, yes?

To recap, I'm not defending the couple, I merely observe that they're not making sh~t up and do know what they're talking. I would hate to be the photog who had to deal with them, but that doesn't mean they're wrong.

On article We are better than that! (23 comments in total)

These people are not going to next year's championship game, that's for sure, even if their schools make it to the final round.

I think this will only eat into Mavic's sales until the next Mavic comes out with better specs. So far DJI rules the drone market, for better or worse. We've seen contenders come and go.

stevo23: Basing a critique on rule of thirds is a massive fail. They should be dragged out and flogged for that alone. Oh, and the photos suck too.

Actually in the image above, there was no mention of rule of thirds. I'm not sure why the grid was included, but the couple was complaining about stuff like the flash killing the name on the back/photo taken from a higher angle and distortion perspective/etc.

As a a7s2 owner, I think this competition is terrific because that means the a7s3 will be even better. Maybe not in terms of having a max ISO of 4 million like that Canon body, but in terms of having better noise control at extreme ISOs. Having companies push each other always ends up benefiting us shooters. Well done, Panasonic.

stratplaya: Well that's sad. Would have liked to have seen them stick it out for another year or so. Now it's all pretty much DJI.

Competition is good, it keeps a company earnest. There's been numerous challengers to DJI but no brand has really cut into the Phantom's market share. DJI itself has done plenty to stay ahead of the pack so it's not exactly being stagnant. I do wonder where the drone market will go in a few years after the craze has faded out.

mxx: The lowering of the price confirms what I've always thought: GoPros are too expensive. The arrival of cheap but capable clones from China also highlighted how expensive GoPros really are.

I agree, though you can't blame them for trying to make as much money as possible. It's not exactly a charity. ;) As you said, with cheaper competition, GoPro will have to check their prices to stay competitive and that's good for all of us consumers.

If this means a huge drop in Karma prices, I think it's great for people who want to get in on the drone scene for cheap.

woerd: Beware of LG 4k screens. I owned 2 LG 4k large screens. Both were sudden death after two years. No support from LG because the warranty period was finished. Never again.

My LG 34" 21:9 display is still doing fine after 3 years.

That $1500 price tag isn't that outrageous if the specs are pro-grade. I'll definitely be looking to buy it.

Make the photographers pay to use the venue. It's already a common practice everywhere else.

Dbosch: I wonder what's going to happen when technology will close the gap between photographer and knowing how to use equipment or light. Basically what photography is, 'here this is the piece of technology I know how to use well'

Give a noob a flagship camera and he will still takenoob shots. Giving someone a katana doesn’t automatically turn him into a samurai. Wearing LeBron’s shoes doesn’t make someone a certain HOFer.

Gmon750: Um... okay... did this camera store have any "surveillance cameras" in use? Would be very ironic (and irresponsible) if they didn't.

"Probably wore ski masks" means "you don't know".

So you know better? I merely offered my guess, which is as good as yours. Waytago being overly sensitive about nothing. Without a face to go by, it's much harder to identify the bad guys, why argue an obvious point? If you're just here to start an argument, then by heavens you've won the day.

Chances are the crooks probably wore wear ski masks. Or whatever is suave among crooks nowadays.

Tronhar: There is apparently more to this than the article above describes. While Yongning did do stunting, this one had a specific purpose. His mother was in dire need of life-saving surgery and as they did not have the money for this, he decided to take on what was, even for him, a risky stunt.

According to the South China Morning Post:
"A family member was quoted as saying he was participating in a "rooftopping" challenge with 100,000 yuan (£11,300) at stake in prize money, though the nature of the competition and its sponsor was unclear.

"He planned to propose to his girlfriend (the day after the challenge)," the South China Morning Post quoted his step-uncle as saying.

"He needed the money for medical treatment for his ailing mother."

"I became speechless after I found out from news that you were doing all that to pay for your ill mother's hospital treatment. You are one of those people in this world, you will do anything for your loved ones, absolutely anything."

@techjedi, you can search upwards in this thread to see someone suggesting this was all staged. My comment wasn't a response to an actual article, but another poster's comments.

Will we see a Mickey Mouse NG special that details the daily routines a cartoon rodent goes through?
