On article Intro to drones part 1: Drone basics (113 comments in total)

For me, drone was a hobby that got boring really quickly. I spent thousand$ for drones, excited on first flight when the drone stayed stationary, fun while I could go get a cup of coffee, came back, it's still hovering, fun for a few months flying and shooting video. I even modded some to carry other cameras. My drones are collecting dust in the garage right now. I don't even bother to watch my drones' videos. In 100 years, the scenic videos that I shot will look the same; the mountains will be the same, the rivers, etc. Boring boring boring. Try youtube to see of you can watch anyone's uploaded drone video to its end. Well, unless the video is about how the drone crashed. That's the only fun part for viewers.

The work, the travel to shoot the photos might have taken the shooter's breath, but the photos did not take my breath. I breathed normally looking at all 10 photos just once; no need for a second look.

Wow! That's incredible.
That total solar eclipse happened before I was born.

There's similar difference between a Toyota and a BMW.
Those men can shoot video of a building, some bridge, one K9, two kittens, plants with a $50 camcorder, and no pretty model will pose for them.

A hybrid DSLR and mirrorless so Nikon lenses can be mounted directly for full controls and other branded lenses can be mounted with adapters, like one camera for all lenses.

My friend told me this
"Don't spend $1,000 to buy a camera lens to take closeup pictures of pennies."

"a single block of milled aluminum."
Does that mean there's no screw on the camera? If so then I wish I win the lottery to get it.
As I recall, many years ago, my Sony F707 lost a tiny screw at the bottom of the long lens. I still don't how it got loose and lost. When I called Sony, the price was $7 for the screw plus shipping. I resorted to using scotch tape to save the money.

I got a question. With wide angle lens mounted on and the camera is set to panorama mode, what will the camera say on the LCD?
a) Press the shutter button, move the camera in the direction of the arrow fast.
b) Press the shutter button, move the camera in the direction of the arrow slowly.
c) Ah! Lens too wide, set to normal mode.
e) OK! Lens is wide enough, set to normal mode.
f) None of the above.

In reply to:

s_grins: EVF that does not inspire, and does not belong here
Fixed lens makes camera suitable for studio only

I always thought that EVF should always be on the same line of sight as the lens. RX1RII users may have problem like left hand steering wheel causing more bang up on the right side of the cars.

... 10mm, 12mm, 15mm, three new extreme wide-angle lenses for Sony E-mount?

Those can't beat 0mm ultra extreme 360-degree panorama shot.

Very good video quality and editing. The music is fine, can be better if the guitar can improvise more like running more notes.

On article Manfrotto launches Pixi Evo mini tripods for DSLRs (32 comments in total)

That's a nice space aged looking mini tripod. But it's still a tripod.
I actually want a bipod that balances itself like the Segway scooter.

Hmm, it looked like the flag didn't need the pole to fly.

The best thing about the 3 1/2" floppy disk for me was it could hold photos from my Mavica FD73, my resume, and absolutely no virus could live on it.

The news said that the floppy drive Sony Mavica was used by US soldiers. Pictures were taken in the field, uploaded to their laptops to uplink to wherever.

Polaroid's rechargeable Zip wireless printer can kill the Instax instantly.
At parties, people can connect to the Zip printer via bluetooth to print shots from their cellphones.

And again, the printer would work well for women.

The Instax will work well for women. For men, they will need bigger wallet to hold the 2x3 prints.
