onlyfreeman: Can I pilot the drone while sitting comfortably in my home, and take photos of whatever I want outside? This is the future, where humans sit at home and experience the world through a robot, there's probably a movie about it.

Wasn't there an animated movie along that line of thought?

Nikon Canada lists a few more bodies than listed here. Including the 7200.

shineofleo: What the... I love my Z CAM E2 M4, but this? so everyone is making such brick-style video camera?

Still, I love such modular design because a professional video camera should like this, especially when you want to put it on a gimbal.

But who is copying from whom?

It does look like it's begging to be mounted on a gimbal or maybe a drone?

Can we just call this the Digital Brownie? or D-BRO?

Feels odd to read his knowing that DP is probably in possession and testing the cameras right now.

yodog: Can be used to make a great "wah wah" sound on your jazz trumpet. Or one can use it as a Devo hat. Are we not men?

Uncontrable Urge to get me one.

abe4652: I don't think they ever recovered from the EM1x.

Lucky for me I sold my m43 cameras and lenses a year ago. We had a beautiful relationship, Olympus and I. We fought the holy wars against Canikon. We laughed at our brother Panasonic, with its video-centric cameras, until Panny left the block and went to play on a deserted beach, no one was on, with its full frame.

Great B&H display there, Panny. So sorry for you.

But now it's time to say goodbye to Oly. I'm so glad we had this time together, just to laugh and sing a song. Seems we just get started and before you know it, comes the time to say...so long. Live it up with Nikon 1, you hear?

man, you must be OLD to remember that. :D

Niko Todd: Spending money on upgrading the CPU - to handle squashed files with lesser quality
Or...
Spending money on cheaper storage to have bigger files with better quality.
It's pretty obvious, isn't it!

Not obvious to me. But I know diddly about video.

Tape5: The 72 year old lady watched three generations worth of documentaries showing animals half this size charging at people in various wildlife parks

And still thought it was a clever idea to leave her car and walk to ten feet of this mountain of muscle

Only some people, not all, get smarter as they get older

Well, she IS from Californy after all.

Between us, my neighbors & I have 52 cameras.
Sometimes we use them to play poker.

I see your Nikon and raise 2 canons

In reply to:

entoman: .... and the bottom line is:

Assuming that Olympus cameras appeal to you, would go still go ahead and dive into the Olympus system after reading about the JIP transfer?

Serious answers only please.

Yes. Olympus having been far ahead of the rest in R&D, could likely be close to releasing their next tech breakthrough, but lack the cash to fully push it out in a way that would fully capitalize on it before others can catch up.
I am moderately invested in Olympus and I will be buying another body in the M1 platform.

Boomanbb: Bring on the tacky old toys! I am so glad I’m old enough to have lived dangerously. Lawn Darts, BB guns and .22 rifles unsupervised, chemistry sets with dangerous chemicals for Christmas, Erector sets with sharp edges, pocket knives, and staying out all day miles from home on bicycles with no adults in sight.

The sweet smell of stop bath in the darkroom.

Instagram, tik tok, Facebook and kids stuck on computers is just sad.

Or jumping off the barn into a pile of straw. Who could hold the biggest fire cracker in their fist. Wearing a red coat in the bull corral. Potato dodge ball.

Stuff like that eh?

Timotis77: Must say I've been very happy with DXO Photolab since swtiching from LR... My only wish is they create a Pano/stitching tool, like in LR - Currently I use a 3rd party program for this

I might have to give it a trial run. Is Photolab quicker and more efficient with memory while performing adjustments?

dabhand: The Laowa 7.5 f2 is a cracking manual lens - small, lightweight and rectilinear too.

Adding a LIKE for using the word CRACKING. Who does that anymore?

Prairie Pal: PHHHT, -5 to +5 ?? If your wearing that in Canadian "harsh" conditions you better be layering it with a thermal Bunny Hug and a toque.

The “bunny hug” is a particularly Saskatchewan term for what people elsewhere in Canada might call a “hoodie” – a hooded sweatshirt with a big pocket on the front. One of the first mentions of a “bunny hug” sweater is from 1978. ... It later became a marker of Saskatchewan identity.
