For protests (since they are so common these days), I would think the phone is a must. Since everyone there will have their phones anyway, it's going to be tough to get a scoop journalistic-wise.

Ideally you'd have a decent enthusiast-level compact zoom that instantly downloads to your phone or (even better) uploads to a server and a partner pulls and edits the images as they come in.

Holy smokes it's expensive. I must be missing something. I like the concept but why the price?

After she recovers I hope she makes a formal public apology and offers to reimburse all parties who had to participate in saving her from her own foolishness.

On a different note: I appreciate that the article didn't call the animal a buffalo.

MikeFairbanks: This is a great article, but there is one very important detail missing from the EXIF of each photo: Altitude.

I want to get into drone photography, specifically for landscapes shot straight down, but I also want to follow the law, which is definitely a safety issue.

Some of those photos, depending on country, may or may not be in compliance with the law. I'm not complaining. Not at all. I just want reference. Thanks

Drogers, that's a good point, of course. I mean, if someone flies up beyond the legal ceiling, snaps a couple pics, and drops back down, it's probably not that big of a deal. But I guess it could be a big problem in some areas (cities, near airports, etc.).

I was just wondering what kind of altitude the argentina and coastal photos were. They are amazing but I cannot tell if they are 300 or 3,000 feet.

GiovanniB: Should be "to Facebook" if they were honest.

Seriously. You're right. The "by facebook" implies that Instagram came from facebook, and that's simply not true.

What could possibly go wrong?

Lobbamobba: Came to see if my suspicion about non photographers and spec hunters was true. It was. Not even a fun wooden toy can pass by without them expressing their insecurities.

Funny and sad.

Of course it makes me insecure. That's a lot of wood they have there.

How about a Motley Crue version with a built-in flask?

Or a Gordon Lightfoot model that only works in Canada?

Or an Amy Whinehouse version that takes absolutely beautiful photos, but then the images get blurrier and blurrier as the night goes on.

Where's the all-metal Metallica edition? Or the David Hasslehoff version painted like the Berlin Wall? Actually, make a Beatles edition that works great but then falls apart abruptly, disappointing millions of customers.

Maybe Trump is a really kind, calm, and compassionate person but they hacked his image to make him say racist, foolish, misogynistic, and low-IQ stuff.

China is fine. Don't make them out to be an enemy. They are not.

This is really cool. People respecting and helping each other. Bravo.

Just look for someone complaining of orange spots on their Sony sensor. That's your guy.

Reilly Diefenbach: As Canada starts its slow but inevitable descent into Amerika North. Now which one of you Sony fans did this?

Sony fans would never steal like that.

We're Sony users. We can afford it. ;)

Note to camera store: Maybe you should upgrade your security cameras. The image quality is quite vintage.

Autriche78: You'd think by now they would have panic buttons with locking doors, considering that the stuff they sell makes diamonds look cheap by comparison.

I agree with Katastrofa. I wouldn't want a crazed and desperate criminal locked in with me. He's gong to panic and probably escalate the violence.
