eno2: A Key Mission 360 killer.

Yes, but remember the live-streaming of the inauguration in 360? They used the keyMissions there...

Eno. I love the price, but for Nikon's $395 street, I also get a self-contained unit (no phone needed), tripod mount, waterproof and shockproof. Sill, Insta360 has better seamless stitching. =)

Was hoping so, alas, no 4K video. 4K resolutions are extremely important for 360 videos since it conveys far more info afforded by FHD.

Z axis where the camera goes up and down. The Z-axis stabilizes your up/down motion when you walk.

JKPinPDX: I think with HERO 6...GoPro needs to actually go... BIGGER! Bigger sensor, Bigger size, Bigger Lenses, Maybe its time to go ILC or even squeeze in a MFT sensor with REAL (optical) optical stabilization.... all in a water proof body! Maybe the size of the Black Magic Micro cameras. Heres to wishful thinking.

What else do you think they could possibly do to WOW us with another "Hero" camera? I love GoPro, own several of their cameras, (including the Hero 5) I actually USE them... I just want to see a better (larger) camera with better IQ with a great Low light lens.

Fact is, they can use a bigger 1/1.7" sensor that gives another stop advantage without changing the lens and form-factor. This alone plus a Full-Read/Cine 4K would be fab!

With no improvement on image quality like the Hero5, Cine-4K, full sensor sampling and OIS, it's another nail, I'm afraid.

SimenO1: Why are so many drones based on the battery inefficient multicopter-design, when an airplane-based design would offer so much smoother glide, less noise and longer battery time?

I am a camera drone operator for weddings and I can tell you that winged drones do have their advantages but requires a minimum speed to stay airborne. Quads can stay stationary and allows more flexible camera pans. Winged drones have both their advantages and disadvantages but quad drones still offer more.

I believe they already are past the point of no return to that path.

eno2: You forgot to mention a major difference between the two cameras:
The Gh5 has a brand new super fast 20 MP sensor without AA filter and the Gh4 has an old 16 Mpix one with AA filter. :)

Fujica, did you just based it on the fact the the GH4 sensor's has bigger photosites? if so, then your rational is irrelevant.

This is bigly stuff!

Sell it for $99 and get it done with, then charge major updates for, say, $30. Bug fixes and minor feature additions should be free.

All things considered. Should this camera exceed 14 stops of dynamic range on 10-bit video, the $2K SRP is a great bargain.

IQ aside, Olympus has the best-slash-superior OIS implementation and algorithm around. They hold several patents on it and if only someone implements it on bigger sensors...

Dear Fotodiox, do an Xmount adaptor. I have loads of Nikon glass so I can use it on my X-T2

You'd think that after an almost two year wait, they would have produced a cam with better video quality, OIS, Cinema 4K or even an upgraded sensor. GoPro had better do something fast.

I would have hoped the "Pro" was a 2-disc RAID. These devices will fail you in less than 2 years along with your valuable photos

On article Grounded: GoPro recalls Karma drone (54 comments in total)

The Hero5 is a disappointment. I was hoping to upgrade my Hero4 Blacks to something worth it after a LONG 1.5 year delay. What do we get? No OIS, same quality, no new resolutions, not even Cinema 4K like the Osmo+. The lens area can even use a bigger 1/1.7" sensor which they did not use. Still fixed focus. these features are now found on the Osmo and Sony offerings. GoPro is now officially doomed. Even the new software forces me to create an account and still needs a huge amount of useability improvements. DJI it is!

On article Xiaomi Redmi Pro quick review: dual-cam on a budget (41 comments in total)

The depth detection is a great proof-of-concept. Of course if the second camera was farther and the sensor the same as the primary, the results would be even closer to natural.

On article Nikon reportedly eliminating 1000 jobs in Japan (518 comments in total)

It's not rocket-science. Higher-end cameras should do 4K because it presents immense advantages over amateur, enthusiast and pro video and movie makers. Nikon missed it by some 2 years. Then there's mirrorless. When their 24MP DSLRs came out, they offered quite a good amount of improvements and their sales surged (good years). They were also the first to offer class leading HD DSLR video with clean HDMI out. But suddenly they just only offered extremely incremental and novelty features as the competition zoomed by. Being afraid of cannibalising your own products is so 1999. They forgot real innovation and are just concentrating on the fewest new features to put on the next model. But I do love and own their gears so I do hope they change their tech and usability strategy. Go Nikon!
