On article Fujifilm X-H1 First Impressions Review (691 comments in total)
In reply to:

tecnoworld: Everybody's crazy with IBIS, forgetting that it's useful ONLY for totally static subjects.

IMO a Samsung NX1 is still better than this camera, thanks to its better sensor.

P.s. tell me one use case where ibis is useful to capture, eg, a moving toddler or a car

Where the exposure is such that the shutter speed can still freeze motion, but with an allowance for not needing as high a shutter speed as one might w/o a stabilized assist, or as high an ISO.

IBIS/OIS not freezing motion is a "Duh" already. It's designed to give an assist for handheld movements, it was never touted as something that freezes subject motion.

IBIS doesn't freeze motion? Who knew?

Wil Helm: This is like a longtime explosure of a moth flying under a streetlight. You dont see a detailed Image of the insect, but a vague cloud of the flight paths it took during the Exposition Time. Is it a real Photography? Its a very blurred photography, but it is a photography.

I thought an explosure was what you call it when zooming a lens during an exposure.

Doesn't Adobe have a responsibility to provide assistance to those they've traumatized?
No one wants to talk about Adobe's role in the opioid crisis, and until that's faced those traumatized by the subscription plan have no hope of recovery.

When a client has to supply the words to have the photos attain the thousand word description threshold, it's never a good sign.

If I had known they were getting into drones, I'd be disappointed.

In reply to:

biggercountry: How dare they charge so much for a computer when I can build one with an AMD Faceripper with 34 cores for $100. How dare they charge a $13000 premium for aesthetics. It's a crime against humanity. Apple must be stopped. C'mon DPReviewers, muster the troops and flame Apple out of existence!!!

Apple's doing that to themselves. No need to expend any energy for that.

Sure, but this isn't about outlawing drones.

Those that don't bother chasing and upgrading more affordable camera kits year after year?

On article DJI Spark Review: Small but mighty (131 comments in total)
In reply to:

lambert4: A nice review, as someone who constantly checks out the drone market but has only played with the "toy" category, this seemed informative and easy to understand.

I wonder how it compares to the Mavic Pro though, in my mind it was the compact DJI not the Phantom?

From what I've read the remotes aren't interchangeable. But either can be operated from a cell phone or tablet with the DJI4GO app.

Lambert: [chuckle] I had 'gateway drone' in a previous edit, GMTA [g]
Falconeyes: While I should have purchased the Mavic instead, I don't regret at all having the Spark as well, for the reasons you raised.

Be careful of the Spark. I got one because I wasn't sure how I'd take to droning, but it looked to be a good way to get the best one can in an affordable kit. Well, soon after I wanted a bit more still image quality. It's gotten me into video in a way I hadn't up until now. I'm waiting now on a Mavic Pro Platinum delivery (but already have the Mavic rig for non-flight stabilized video). I should have just jumped on a Mavic at the get-go.

Not for me, but I have to say it's rather clever.
