mako69: I still cannot comprehend how this company stays in business with their over-priced, under-performing equipment. It's like PT Barnum said, there's a sucker born every minute." I suppose there are enough people who figure that because it costs more, then it must be better. Leica makes good equipment, but not good enough to justify at a higher price than Nikon or Canon, for far less performance.

A chance for US buyers to come back to their senses :)

TheSimpsons: So if one motor fails, it's the opposite motor/rotor that flips the drone over.
Then an interlock between diagonal motors so that one failing cuts the other one- leaves a virtually level drone (if fast enough cut off) with just two problems.
1 it's falling because there is just half the power and 2 its rotating horizontally as the two remaining rotors are spinning in the same direction.
Over powered motors would reduce the fall speed , but any ideas on slowing 2) the rotation?

I have no idea what you are talking about but you have my admiration.

The Physics Prof. I wish I had in university. Very good explanation of the subject.

Focus Shift Shooting: Saw this earlier before DPReview posted it.

None of them are good, especially not the aerial drone photography which should be made illegal in all countries.

Well, I take it back, the orangutan one is quite good actually. The viewer asks questions about the animal's thoughts. That's more than almost all photographers are capable of, so hat's off to Jay for that shot.

Exactly my thoughts. Except for the Orangutan which stimulates thought and feeling, all the rest are eye candy.

SarahTerra: Right on, sue him good.

Frightening and maddening to me all the millenials who grew up on social media that don't see a problem with using the photo unauthorized.

There used to be a world where your thoughts, privacy and rights were respected and valued.

The programmed youth of our time now give it up without a second thought, in the name of vanity and false hopes of fame. Then whine on facebook about how they are working at starbucks for nothing, and making someone else billions.

1) Shoot a lot of pictures of baby relatives, etc
2) Wait and lay low until they get famous (don't bother to apply for copyright of your photo at that time)
3) When they get famous, sue them for copyright infringement
4) Be famous yourself by having your name printed all over digital media
5) Goto 1

1) Why should I not instead buy a used, established, brand name film camera for a mere fraction of the price?

2) Do you also provide development labs, or at least sell development kits, accessories, etc where I live(Not everyone lives in Costcoland)? Don't think so.

So until you answer these two questions, nope.

whawha: The easiest and by far best solution for this and so many other headaches is to not get married. It just works!

I will see you married with 3 kids in as many years. Just remember told you so.

The elephant feet would be my favourite shot...striking, bold, disturbing, with an impact...IF it wasn't molested in PP with over-used effects and turned into a cartoon.

Aliasing occurs because the sampling frequency is less than twice the motion frequency(Nyquist freq.), so the bird appears to be floating in the air. Oh these are the times that eases the pain of wasting life studying DSP.

princewolf: Will a single dime go to the monkey who shot the photo by way of PETA's lawsuit?
NO.

Who paid for the trip to Indonesia, the camera, the lens, equipment? Who had the novel idea of handing the camera out to the macaque? David Slater. And now he's penniless for all his efforts. Reminds me of Farnsworth vs RCA.

Rdfen, I meant the way it should be, not the legal way, whatever it is. This is a clear instance of what is legal is not always what is right. In fact, bullying and cheating is how most big companies get their copyrights.

This story to me represents everything that is wrong and corrupted about photography today.

Alternative title "Why don't you buy an M6 with EF-M 22mm already?" Are they overstocked by any chance? :)

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (506 comments in total)

I think

"it's much faster than the a7R II, with a more sophisticated AF system, but it can't match the older camera for sheer resolution."

Sums it all up pretty nicely.

This article hepls me get an idea about most commonly used focal lengths. Rest is pretty much useless for me :)
