What a jerk! Battery, and not the kind that goes inside the camera.

Just say no...
I don’t like these things buzzing overhead.
Several pros have crashed them n wilderness areas leaving plastic and lithium batteries behind.
The images are a gimmick that soon grows old.

A sign that the rental business is not all that robust?

8K vs 4K vs BluRay effect on internet speed?

A famous consumer product review company does not recommend the Surface due to poor reliability. This author sounds like hie's disgruntled. I'll ignore his advice.

In reply to:

Slapstick Noir: Here is a specific case where the real IQ can't/shouldn't be measured on a tripod in a studio. The elephant in the room is the IBIS in the Sony cameras. D850 and 5DSR are on completely different planets just because the lack of it, despite the obvious high-megapixel common denominator. Just think about the ratio of shots taken>shots in focus>sharpness(?) with the Sony's IBIS, and how much IQ it would cost you to achieve the same with Nikon/Canon. May be not too much for many people but at the price Nikon/Canon are asking for... I'm sorry! Can't win me over.

No elephant. Use a tripod when appropriate. It will dramatically improve you photos: sharpness, focus, low ISO, improved composition and increased pleasure in in photography.

Comparing jpgs is silly. Default contrast and sharpening varies among the manufacturers and greatly influences the results.
Nikon’s default settings handily beat the competition but that is about all one can say.

Battery Manufacturers - let's get on this and solve this problem!

Enlarge any image enough and you'll see "a veil".
However, these images are very impressive. This is a clever technology. I think we saw this first from Olympus if I recall correctly.
Now, when will sensor shift be so fast we can photograph moving objects?

On article Cinematic 4K footage shot with the Apple iPhone X (309 comments in total)
In reply to:

misspiggy01: please DPR, what exactly is cinematic about this video?

is it

a) image stabilization?
b) saturated colors?
c) low DR?
d) deep focus?
e) exposure times shorter than 1/50th?
f) the music?
g) the strong letterbox?

i think you mean youtubeatic or vimeoatic and not cinematic.

a cinematic video would have one of the following attributes:

a) shallow depth of filed
b) high DR
c) 180° shutter at 24p

none of this is present in this video.

misspiggy01: Can't agree with you.
Cinematic: having qualities characteristic of motion pictures

The highest resolution is stunning. Of course the cinematographer is talented.

Brazil is a big country, 200 million people. How can you write that off? If you are not selling cameras there you need a new sales force.

Why didn't they lease this business to a subcontractor? Or combine with other business other South American countries?

One of the better lenses for casual shoe photography, it appears.

Images look great, as many of you have noted, and I’m not surprised.

$500 seems a bit pricy.

I'd like to see that warehouse. That would be quite a spectacle.
