I was terrifying when Google bought snapseed team, thought about it will disappear or been merged into Google photo or make it Android exclusive. I'm so glad I was wrong, this gem not only free, but keep thriving.

When you start to plan your trip to capure those dream landscapes with drone, you'll find out all those scenaric sites are forbidden drones.

Rule 1: Don't trust `free` service.
Rule 2: Don't trust any Google service.

I recently bought a synology 416j for $200 and 4 x WD red 8T $160 a piece (shucked from their easystore external drive).
So total is $840 plus tax and a full functional NAS with 32TB space.

privater: My excerpt from this video:
Hope to save you guys 30 minutes.

1. DR range comparison: D850 same with D810.
2. Color diff: D850 have better color, more meter sensor also helps tracking
3. 10 pin terminal is same with D5
4. Assign dedicate button to change file size on the fly in a workaround way incorporate with `my menu`
5. Which lens best on D850: gold ring lenses.
6. Bitrates on external recorder, HDMI 8bit 4:2:2 signal, it depends on external recorder
7. speed lights compatible with D850
8. ES-2 digitizing adapter can be used on other camera.
9. focus stack aim to simplify the process without using external softwares.
10. least talked feature: digitizer, focus shift, crop mode 1:1 has 30Mpx

11. how is silent mode, same like D810 but can be used in more shooting mode with less restriction.
12. 4k video: no crop and use full width sensor
13. toughness: should be same with D810
14. high ISO should be great
15. control flash with touch screen
16. raw files size and their usage of different scenario
17. silent first curtain shutter better than D810 no lock in mirror
18. D850 can use DX lenses
19. 8k time-lapse create outside camera, 4k time-lapse create within the camera
20. what’s the usage of silent shoot in time-lapse? keep a low profile avoid bugs and insects.

ZeneticX: nice release by Nikon

now I'm waiting to see what Sony have up their sleeves to counter this, maybe a7rIII or the a9r

canon.... what's a canon?

at least, no silly $3000 price tag anymore...

Link | Posted on Aug 24, 2017 at 04:46 UTC

With the same price range, better buy a NAS with upgradeable/recoverable capabilities.

sunnycal: Can someone remind Adobe Lightroom team that this is 2017 now. We have been paying monthly subscription for the privilege of using a two+ year old product!

Is that why subscription model was put in place?

As a sole Lightroom user, I regret subscription CC 2015, there is no major benefits from switch 6 to CC 2015. when they release a Lightroom 7, I'll be discard this subscription all together, two years for $240 is outages, better pay $79 upgrade and keep using it for 3-4 years.

ADW59: I'm really interested to see how this performs, I haven't ordered one and don't have any vested interest but I wish them every success

This photo looks promising. I don't think current lens set could do this: https://spot.light.co/content/images/2017/06/L16_00159.jpg

Now we need to decrease the camera lenses used in future generation to 12, 8, 4, 1...

As a A7II user, I appreciate this. Bought one on Nov 2014, firmware updates, new lenses, and even the sell price is still holding pretty well. A true camera without value deprecation.

I thought the firmware update for LA-EA3 is LA-EA5/6.
