turretless: Yesss!!! Finally!!!
At least a small victory against technophobes, scaremongers and bureaucratic empire-builders!

Until they pass a more appropriate regulation/law

It shows a 3D image or you need to wear goofy 3D glasses to see it? And what size is its image sensor? Probably tiny.

You can't just take a pic of a kid in a war area and have people buy it, sorry

With 7 billion people, there are many, many millions of screw ups!

Steve Sanacore: The sooner they get some kind of transponders in all drones, the sooner we rid the sky of ignorant operators. The DIY crowd won't get away with it for long. If a drone is spotted that isn't returning an interrogation, then they can track it and find the culprit.

But the millions of existing UAVs (not drones - that's a military term) will be grandfathered in. A result of not enough initial oversight.

OlyPent: Just one more example of how one idiot could result in new laws intruding into the activities of the majority. Same with anything, from guns to mountain biking, you get a small core of scum (most of which should be in prison or mental institutions) who ruin things for everyone else. If this guy was so feeble he didn't "understand" and needed "educating" maybe there should be a test for drone ownership? IF it would mean keeping some freedom for others who have brains.

There should be restrictive laws on personal UAV use. The only difference between a UAV and plane is size. Planes need license, lots of flight time, and must file flight plans. UAV use is dangerous because there's no one it in!

mandm: A guy who lives 1 mile from me had a single engine float-plane on the lake and he didn’t believe the No Fly Zone after 9.11.2001 included him and his plane, big mistake.
He took off from the lake and within 3 1/2 minutes 2 fighter jets went over us very low and very fast, there was a loud bang and everything shook. People in the nearby restaurant and staff with patient’s in gowns at the medical clinic ran outside thinking it was a bomb, but we all now believe the jets went too fast and broke the sound barrier. The jets were gone and it wasn’t until a couple of days later that the news reported the problem; the guy in the float-plane.
His float-plane was seized and he got hit with a big fine, he also spent a few days in jail; he still lives on the lake and even today doesn’t have a plane!

The jets didn't go "too fast". They were doing their jobs!

paulbysea: Good, idiots like this need to be discouraged. My local airport had to be shutdown for a while because of someone flying a drone very close by. Hopefully it won't take a crash and the loss of many lives to get people to realise drones are potentially dangerous to aircraft.

No, UAVs themselves are dangerous aircraft!

Andrew770: Nikon's cameras have better image quality than Canon, better lower light image quality (high ISO performance), and better autofocus (AF) system for pictures and better subject tracking for moving subjects. Canon is a video company and have the same video quality as Nikon but its Video AF gives it an advantage. But Nikon also has an advantage because the D7500 has 4K video (see below). So which camera would I chose for photography? The Nikon D7500.

So the Nikon D7500 gives you 4K video which Canon does not offer except on their expensive professional cameras.

Canon isn't just a "video company ". They do far more: photography, imaging, copying, printing, medical, tv cameras, all based in imaging.

thx1138: Nikon offers 4K but no on sensor phase detect, Canon does not offer 4K but has on sensor phase detect. Can these two please get together and offer a complete solution. Canon's FHD is rubbish, it might be rated 1080p but it's actually closer to 700p. Nikon is only useful for static subjects unless your DoF is so great focus is not critical.

Assuming 7D3 ever comes out, it'll probably still stick to worst FHD but have best LV AF around. With D820 about to be announced, will Nikon on soldier on with antiquated CDAF in a flagship DSLR?

They have said to make products to not directly compete with another's product, aside from the sports pro model 1D X2 and d5.

OlyPent: At this point, a new (NEW) camera review would have generated about 500 comments. The Sony A9 had 1000 I think. This is telling.

With a decreasing market and very mature high quality high performance cameras, manufacturers cannot make a "all new" camera every 3 years. It's gotta go the old camera with some updated components.

soller: How the Canon 80D's 3" articulating 1.04M-dot display is better than the Nikon D500's 3.2" tilting 2.36M-dot display? Only because its articulating?

Of course

rsdofny: I am not a pro like most other people on this forum. The feature set in this camera is great. But this looks like the same camera year over year, and it just does not have the sex appeal for me to buy it. I think that I am ready for a change.

You are misguided. Cameras were never sexy. They are like a hammer. People spend $30,000 on cars and don't think twice about them. Geez.

mario loconte: When shadow areas are lifted by a couple of stops, there's no obvious banding, but noise becomes prominent, suggesting that the 6D Mark II's sensor probably isn't ISO-invariant. This isn't a surprise[.. ]

Seems like it has no 14bit raw support.

Canon has been 14 bit raw for 10 years now? Just no full ACR support yet for the camera.

shoque: Why so bulky, large depth. Please, add new sensor and proccesor to old EOS 5D classic. That's all I need. Back to hearth of imaging....

6D2 144.0 x 110.5 x 74.8mm
5D 152 x 113 x 75 mm

Same depth same height just 8mm wider.

fatdeeman: I've just read that they have actually downgraded the video specs vs the MK1. The maximum bitrate as been reduced and the ALL-I codec option has been removed. Shocking!

The lack of 4k is disappointing but not a deal breaker for most but to actually downgrade the video specs after 5 years is inexcusable. Whether you're into video or not that just isn't cool.

A troll is someone throwing fuel on the flames for the point of it. On here isn't typically bashing a brand you don't use. Your parents wouldn't be proud of you.

dpr4bb: The one glaring shortcoming of the 6D, AF points packed in the center of the frame, remains unsolved on the 6DII. Pathetic!

So are you! You won't/don't even use Canon!
