Kara, how does Lanc work with this APP? You said people had a hard time getting into Lanc for quiet a while, is this still a problem?

Desert Cruiser: Am I missing something here -- there was only one photo presented here that was an OOC jpg. All the other were worked on in Lightroom. Was this a write-up on Lightroom or the lens? Not being a smart axx !!!

Dale: I appologize, I now see that you can open the jpg's in the description to the right. -- a link! Thanks for all your work on this.

Dale even if I understood you line of reasoning, I would think you would, or could, have supplied the OOC jpg's next to the ones you corrected in Lightroom, this has been done before in many samples shown by DPR. That would give us a choice at least to see what came out of the lens, not how you corrected it. What do you think?

On article Casio: the innovator that time forgot (153 comments in total)

I had one of Casio's credit card cameras and it was a small pocket camera, and it took great photos. Can't remember the model no. The sound track in videos would not synch with the video. BUT, it had one option that was really neat and should be on all cameras, yet no one has ever adapted this -- sound recording, no video, just sound and it could record for hours. Worked great.

Can you plug the camera into a 12 volt USB to keep it running for longer times? Does it have a plug to do this.

The vehicle isn't for use in the forests or desert here on earth - think about it, it's a planet rover for the Chinese space program?

Desert Cruiser: It doesn't have obstacle avoidance, well all the options that were left out were done on purpose, why, to keep the weight down to less than 250g. It makes for a big selling point that you don't need to pass a test and obey the FAA rules. It also makes it a small easy to carry drone.

Yes I realize that, but you don't have to register it and you don't have to pass a test. I live in Utah, so I know about the National Parks/Monuments!

And here's a drone that you should also look into, because you don't have to tie up your smart phone to use it and it's very inexpensive too. Xiaomi FIMI A3

On article DPReview TV: Is Jordan out of touch? (147 comments in total)

Try to stick with the old way you shot these, they were always grabbing your attention and not distracting - I'm sure that's why DPr hired you to begin with. I can't tell the difference between 24P and 30P, and the jump cuts, well we use them on Youtube with a fade transition, and to be honest for what you're doing, don't use them unless it absolutely necessary. Always a pleasure to watch you videos!

Carey we completely agree, it is the smallest camera with an APS-C sensor that takes photos we can use on our web site and any resolution. And the video is not bad. Even our Pentax and Canon D-SLR's have better detail but were just to much with the all the lenses. We're not sorry we chose the M-100 and in fact we're enjoying it very much. Nice to have a camera that's so small. There are two things on this camera we felt needed fixing, and if you do this you'll be happy with the fixes. It's all about the handling of the camera. There are links to these two cheap fixes, that will make you like the camera even more. http://www.in-the-desert.com/digitalcameras.html We don't sell them, but here's the link for more info.

Just curious, I wonder what Jordan of DPreview TV uses for their videos?

This reminds me of a software we played with a couple years ago, called "Crazy Talk" for adding voice and animating jpg images. Worked great, no AI involved?

I ldidn't see the "bulb" setting above on the specs, did I miss that?

On article Should I buy the Sony a6400? Here’s how it compares (608 comments in total)

The new Sony sounds nice, but twice the cost of our Canon M100. The Sony certainly will do more and do it more precisely but for a great travel cam with decent video it's hard to beat at it's current price with a kit lens. And DPReview thought so last year too. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/buying-guide-best-cameras-under-500

In reply to:

getochkn: So they say the M50 is nearly the same price as as the A6400? How is $620 for a M50 body nearly the same as a $900 body? $300 difference is 33% more.

No they said "It's slightly less expensive" don't twist it around, go back and read it!

On article Video: The history of B&H in 91 seconds (170 comments in total)

We just bought a new camera system from B&H and it got delivered a day early and it was the same price as other retailer's except that it also included a spare battery along with the same other options, memory card, camera bag. Same price, no tax, free delivery. I had to wait on ordering Saturday for a couple hours, BIG DEAL And the important thing here is this! If you own a business, like we did (several in fact) then it's your right to be open when you want to be open. They have always been great to deal with, we'll continue to use them for our business needs! Thanks Henry P. !!!
