Johnedlt: At $400, you can get very good Androids and if youre an apple fan but no apple budget you can always get a better older iphone new or used.

@forest dream has a selfie camera ever NOT been a joke?

A 1/2.33” sensor on a full frame camera?

No thanks. I don’t only want to do telephoto shots.

If you want the full frame look on digital from vintage 35mm lenses, then get a used A7. Or an APS-C mirrorless camera and a Speedbooster. If you’re that attached to the vintage camera body...shoot film and scan it? Cause you’re definitely not getting the vintage experience with this contraption. Ergonomically, this thing is an abomination.

This phone has the exact same CPU and graphics as the iPhone 11, the Apple A13 SoC, which is a newer chipset than any of the older phones, such as the XS (A12 SoC) or the X (A11 SoC.) From a pure performance standpoint, there is no older, better used iPhone at the same price. With the same brain as the 11 and 11 Pro, even with Apple’s liberally-pushed software updates this is gonna stay a usable phone for a year longer than last year’s models.

Apple is saving a bunch of money on this by just using as many iPhone 8 parts as possible and using existing tooling and not packing in as many features or luxury components, but still not skimping on computational power. Is the lack of a U1 locator chip, multiple cameras, OLED screen or Face ID a dealbreaker? For an awful lot of customers, probably not.

Ironfilm: This bodes well for the future next generation iPod Touch that its camera will have 4K video! Fingers crossed

If there’s even a next iPod touch. With prepaid carriers like straight talk selling the 32gb iPhone 6S for $99 I don’t think there’s much of a market for the touch anymore. The 6S has 4K as well...

Howard: What a shame! Old SE’s popularity was due to it’s pocketable size. Doesn’t anyone at Apple know this?! I won’t be “upgrading”!

Old SE’s exact dimensions *and most importantly price point* were because they could *just* use the 5s tooling and parts to a large extent. Right now the 8-style tooling and parts are the cheapest.

Hey nice, I was considering spending that much on a refurbished X, but I think I’ll pick this to replace my iPhone SE which hasn’t been running well with iOS 13 and has a <80% health battery.

Imager of: Here’s an idea.

Rather than giving 100% of profits to help with efforts to fight this virus. ( let’s be honest, the amount would do nothing really significant to help)
Just charge what it costs to make this new tripod and add $20 profit per sale for your company.

Makes way more sense. We get a better deal which means you’re more likely to sell them. Plus you make a little something too.

You can thank me later.

lol good luck cashing in these internet points anywhere

Being right is not and never has been a democracy.

Yup; profits don’t include operating expenses.

Manufacturing cost plus $20 doesn’t pay the help or keep the lights on.

500-1000% markups are VERY common across more industries than you think because businesses have lots of expenses other than parts and labor.

Garyster: The videographer I work with in my full-time wedding business does not recommend this tripod - especially for the price. Kudos to PD for their donations, but these are WAY overpriced and the design is poor. I asked to see the tripod and mistook the leg anchor (for lack of a better term) for the extension release (they look really similar) and they flimsy metal piece came off and the leg slipped out of the larger portion. I was super embarrassed. Luckily it popped back in place, but a HORRIBLE design.

Not exactly a videography-oriented tripod is it?

I hope consumerism is starting to have run its course. I’ve been using a refurbished iPhone SE for 3 years. I haven’t made a big camera purchase since 2013. I’m a millennial and I’m tired of being socially expected to *buy things.*

I just purchased a used Sony NEX-6 for under $200 as an “upgrade” over a Sony A3000 that I bought in 2014. It’s a camera I only use for focus peaking with vintage manual focus lenses. I’m happy with it, because the NEX-6’s screen and EVF are waaay brighter and more detailed, the camera balances better with large lenses like the OM Zuiko 35-70 f/3.6, and honestly I've been perfectly happy with 16mp sensors since 2013.

Of course, less consumption means you have to pay more, but the used market in digital cameras seems better for the end user than ever.

On article Opinion: Film photography has found its feet again (636 comments in total)

I briefly shot film, but haven't for years due to lack of facilities and not wanting to pay the exorbitant costs for 3rd party processing. Instead I keep my film lenses going by using them with an APS-C camera and a speedbooster. But I'm happy that film as a niche is filling back in again. It's nice to know that Tri-X is waiting for me.

D_Surrey: The ipad doesn't feed back as much location data as a mobile phone, the phone is tracking your location all the time if you haven't switched it off. Facebook make money from data and advertising etc if they're not seeing the numbers work they're not gonna develop the app, their developers will be used elsewhere. Someone at facebook has crunched the numbers on it and decided it's not worth it. They couldn't careless about what the user wants unless it increases their bottom line.

Uh not in any non-cellular iPad I've ever owned. They do get *some* location data from triangulating known wifi networks, but that requires that you're near wifi.

@thenolif Only the most expensive iPad models with SIM slots have GPS, and people are less likely to lug them everywhere than their phones. Tablets absolutely don't provide as much location data as smartphones.

Why does there even need to be a special iPad app? Plenty of apps are designed for both iPhone and iPad without needing separate versions. Just allow the app use the full resolution of the iPad and use the iPad scale on-screen keyboard, there's no way that can take more than a few hours of development.

It’s what the people have decided the internet is for. Complaining.

I might like this for my E-PM2, which is too small for a universal L-plate and for which a custom fitted one isn’t made.

It probably wouldn’t work for my Sony A3000, which is very front heavy because I use it with full frame lenses (though the thought of perhaps attaching this to the Metabones Speedbooster’s tripod foot is intriguing if uncomfortable sounding)

I would not use this with a camera for which I’ve had a custom fitted L-plate bolted on for years.

TSA is security theater which has never once stopped a terrorist attack, only reacts to terrorist events (like that one Richard Reid guy being the cause for us all taking off our shoes) and has been tested to let 95% of weapons through

Why do the American people still put up with this? Airlines should be in charge of their own security like they are in other countries. I’d say it’s pretty obvious that the airline has a compelling interest in making sure they don’t lose their hundred-million dollar assets.

rialcnis: Can't tell if it can sit flat like a tablet.

The Processor options sound great. is there an i9? Although the Xeon or Quadro option might be better. Doesn't specify the GPU

Also it doesn't specify if the monitor is OLED, It says IPS. It also doesn't give size options. The SD card slot is a great thing. Does it have a regular Ethernet port?

I need to see complete specs.

This might be better than the new dual screen Zenbook Pro duo which has an i9 available.

How good will the cooling be?

Are there case color options? Lots more to find out.

IPS is a type of LCD technology, therefore not OLED.

On article Hands-on with the DJI Mavic Mini (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aegon Targaryen: So, the reason for sub-250g: avoiding prohibitive restrictions/nannyware, is undermined by... having the same or greater restrictions/nannyware than previous DJI quads.

And then the arbitrary (honestly it's intentional upgrade path) omission of 4K and... ahem... RAW capture!?

DJI is dead to me.

In the US, FAA regulations still apply to aircraft under 250g, it's the drones between 0.55-55lbs that require special registration under part 107. Airspace over 400ft belongs to manned aviation regardless—drones aren't allowed that high, period.

I appreciate that DJI is making aviation more accessible than ever before through well thought out, affordable products and at the same time protecting the drone aviation industry by complying strictly with FAA regulation—lest the FAA institutes even more draconian regulations. Regardless of which administration is in charge, do you really expect the FAA to have the interests of private, small-time drone pilots in mind when they expand regulation?

I won't be buying this particular drone since it doesn't have RAW and this is a camera forum, but that's whatever.
