I recently purchased this unit on the advice of friends who own the original Mini. As a novice and the new owner of some rural forested property, the Mini 2 is exactly what I was hoping it would be. DJI Fly app is thorough and intuitive and onboard maps allow me stay out of restricted areas. I'm looking forward to augment my ground based explorations with this little unit. The package deal is the way to go, imo. Also, if Amazon is not your cup of tea, you can order directly from DJI; they'll ship from China and though you'll wait a week or so, you'll pay no sales tax. At least that's my experience in NY state.

jensting: I just wanted to say that a few of these images are on display in the Apollo 11 film showing in IMAX cinemas. I watched it in the Copenhagen Planetarium and was well impressed.

Indeed. Hats off to the filmmakers and archivists for compiling historic footage and stills of this unique adventure. For gearheads. the movie provides several revealing images of "vintage" technology, that makes my ancient head marvel at how far image capturing and playback technology has evolved. There's a moment when Armstrong, standing in moon dust, says, "I'll just swap lenses, now" that made me cringe, wondering how much dust might migrate to the body and lens. Other footage reveals how well documented the moonshot actually was; so many long lenses and so many cameras! For playback: I laughed at the television console "in real wood grain!", hoisted on a table top and serving the press pool live coverage of the take off and landing. Marvelous stuff.

paulfulper: Color photography already existed in China then , why did they shoot black and white?

After having read the article and reviewed the pictures, I'm hard pressed to recall whether the images were black and white, or color. I just know they were powerful.

Bowlomatic: I was able to do ad & design shooting in my studio (s) from around 1980 thru 2000, then things went more corporate based for the next 17 years.
I got to work in the golden age compared to now, great jobs, (and some boring), location travel in the US & away...Seeing my work in mags, billboards, collateral....
But today I just don't see it as a career path for someone. It's all become too diluted, too common, to easy, too cheap, too fast....And frankly, everyone's a "photographer" now, everyone has an iPhone.
Organizing projects, hiring assistants, stylists, models, hair & make-up, props, locations, food stylists, building sets, going through airports with half a studio in wheel cases...
And the money was great.

The magic used to be there.

"Digital hoarding" is a real thing. "Awash in images" is spot on.

GarysInSoCal: HALLELUJAH!... we need a lot more articles like this released so that a million loser photographers will bail outta this monsterously overcrowded industry... sell their gear and start driving for Uber. In this hugely saturated photographer market like today... when the going gets tough... the tough get going... and only the strong survive.

Start driving for Uber? Road rage, hypertension, and hemorrhoids, and at least here in NYC, the potential you may take your own life. Not a good option.

Why all male names? Is there a preponderance of male threads as opposed to female fittings? Earth to marketing department.

A9RIII: It's painfully embarrassing when Apples crappy iPhone not even can be considered a top 10 camera phone 2018. Overhyping and overpricing are what the naked emperor only does these days.

Sarcasm is wasted on the weak-minded.

So geeky and wonderful. Hats off to these guys (I'll bet there are some women responsible, as well!) Indeed, more like this, please.

Noverdose: Some very constructive comments and observations here. Also, check out Tony Northrup's YouTube take on Nikon's future. He makes some very useful recommendations that I only wish Nikon would consider.

Would you care to expound on that charge, specifically?

I loved the tilt lens feature; great for shooting in crowds, above my head. My insurance company subsidized my next Nikon- a D70 S, after thieves broke into my home and nicked it. I still have the lens adapters, though.

Nikoncanonfan: This is the worst ces I can remember another forgettable Panasonic and lenses for the tired m43 format, Fuji painting two cameras silver, another predictable amateur Nikon we all knew about and an inconsequential canon compact upgrade. And a drone got painted with a dragon totally pathetic no wonder the gear markets in a mess

"Tired m43 format"? Really?

vscd: This is a really capable videocam. I wonder if it can make good stills :) For me the videofeature is pumped up too much because the handling of a DSLR-like body is weird for filmmakers. Why not make a great ergonomic videocam and add still-capability instead. It's easier I guess. (Specwise the GH5 is really NICE!)

By the time you chuck the body into a rig and add an external mic, lights, viewer, etc., it starts acting like something other than a DSLR body, no?
