Threlly: No 360 video with that handle in the way...

You misunderstand, my Zhiyun can rotate through 360 deg, it allows tracking, panorama, full rotation in remote mode etc etc.
This cannot, the handle is in the way.

Canon have really lost the plot in the last 5 years or more.
Mediocre cameras, plasticky build, weird ergonomics and now an £800 camera for £1300.

For £1300 I can buy some amazing kit, oh yeah, with brilliant 4K to boot.

Not good Canon.

Threlly: The people at Yi must be laughing their heads off, they must need drugs to stop the belly laugh seizures.

Just watch the sales of the Yi+ ROCKET into the stratosphere.

This is not the end of GoPro, but surely the beginning of the end ?

Same old sensor, once the light levels drop and ISO climbs, blurry, blotchy, noisy mess.
I don't just use my cams in the day.

Not for me, and not for $500 !!!!!

Image processor.
But is the same sensor ?

Threlly: Now then.
Just seen my first Hero6 low light footage.
It's early days, but as I suspected, utter fuzzy, noisy garbage.
Any benefit of increased resolution is completely obliterated.
It just goes to show, tiny sensors cannot cheat physics.

Surely, a manufacturer somewhere has seen a gap in the market, for a compact, robust action camera that has the chops to do 4K justice ?
Why would ANYBODY pay $500 for this ?
For 60fps ?

Oh please....

The RX0 look lovely, but no internal 4K ?!?!?
Who are Sony pitching it at ?

Hmmm, compare this to footage taken by the test people.
This looks massively processed.
The real footage I've seen looks soft soft soft.

Nope.

Threlly: Lovely in daylight, carefully chosen shots for the low light that hide the terrible noise in the shadows.
If you look carefully at the sunset scenes you can see the benefit of 4K dropping away as detail starts to blur and smudge.
Nearly $1000 for the 256Gb model too.

Same old same old.

Well, this is the issue completley, I shoot video in daylight on my iPhone SE, but at night I have to swap to my Sony RX100, at an iso of 800 I get virtually noisesless videos that are sharp with plenty of dynamic range.
I WOULD like to be able to just use the iPhone, but it just isn't up to the job.
Don't take my word for it, look at videos posted on youtube of every iteration of iPhone in low-light.
Terrible.

My point is this.
BY now, Apple should have been able to nail this one on the head.
Don't get me wrong the sensor in the Iphone 8/X is better than the 7 or the six, but it doesn't come close in resolution, colour reproduction or dynamic range of my lowly RX100MIII with it's much sniffed at 1" sensor.

And for the prices...they SHOULD have. Period.

Threlly: Unless that tiny sensor has been improved it will still suck in anything less than bright sunlight.
I'm guessing here, but the lack of 'leaks' about an amzing new sensor are nil, hence, night city shots ?
Fuzzy, noisy, blurry mess.

Nope, it's element size and other factors on tiny sensors.
Compared to my Hero5, iPhone SE, and old Sony CX280E, Sony RX100MIII takes reasonable 1080p videos, a little soft in comparison to the iPhone.
As soon as the light levels drop the difference is astounding, the Sony can take virtually noiseless video at F2, 1/30 at an iso of 1000 in a darkened street.
All the others (resplendant in daylight) fall to pieces.
Most notably the iPhone, who's 4K at night may as well be 720p !
The Hero5 a mess of low dynamic range.

They won't fix this...I promise.
It'll be a hundred bucks more than the Hero5 and still look garbage as soon as the light dips.

On challenge Your Best Bird Photos (7 comments in total)

Just had my entry disqualified because the admin failed to see the geese in formation at the top of my picture.
P*ssed, to be honest, that the editor of a competition couldn't bring themselves to even bother looking closely.
I would have liked to have been able to respond, but there appears to be no reply button on the message.

Deleted my account today.
Plenty of other services in the sea.

inevitable crafts studio: iam sooooo glad i sold the x100 weeks ago :)

good luck fellows, i guess fujifilm will for sure bring out supernice firmwareupdates on a daily basis hehehe

Why did you sell your X100 when the problem is with the X10 ?
Was your X100 blooming ?

On article Fujifilm announces X10 high-end enthusiast compact (279 comments in total)

I would dearly DEARLY like to see some samples from this.
I would really like to see what happens to the edge of the frame with the lens wide open.
I very much hope that Fuji have learnt some lessons from the X100 menu issues.
And finally, I hope it's auto-focus is quicker than the X100 and hunting is reduced.

If...if...if..
