The San Francisco district attorney’s office sued Lily Robotics on Thursday over claims that the San Francisco drone maker engaged in false advertising and unfair business practices.
“It does not matter if a company is established or if it is a startup,” “Everyone in the market must follow the rules. By protecting consumers, we protect confidence in our system of commerce.”
Lily booked 60,000 advance orders at $499 to $899 each. Gascón’s office obtained an order from a judge requiring the company to return all the money it received from orders to customers and not use it for other purposes.
The company had used customer money to secure a $4 million bank loan. The suit also alleges that customers had “considerable trouble” requesting refunds and that Lily has “lost contact with a high percentage of its preorder customers.”

Good spot. The news behind the news.

How is that different from the camera's built in Auto Exposure?

I mean, I know AE wont ever give exactly even perceived exposure between shot with different lighting, so how does auto ramping do it differently?

$2billion is a pretty healthy RoI for a single photo session.

We should all be making a lot of money as pro photogs if our work is that effective.

No thanks.

You do get a phone included with the camera for free though.

Very impressive. Probably the first camera phone you can pixel-peep without going urrrgh! Even ISOs in the 800-1200 range look pretty decent.

DPReview why you no include YI M1?

Would need a decent RAW buffer depth.

Guess part of the problem is their all new product in the drone market, Karma, was beaten by a cooler more rugged DJI Mavic. Totally stole their thunder. Mavic is the drone GoPro should have launched.

Matto715: 94% of Adobe RGB, not enough. And - can it be color calibrated? If Eizo, NEC, etc. can do 100%, why can't WACOM? I'll gladly buy one, once this is finally done.

It just misses the 6% of colors people don't actually use. Specifically: Puce, umber, maroon, cerise, and taupe. As long as you avoid those unpopular colors, you'll be fine.

RAWs look great up to and including ISO3200 - Lots of detail.

6400 on wards, yukky. Quickly falls well behind Panasonic's m43 sensors at high ISOs.

Im waiting to see some video samples. This could be an awesome all-round camera if high-ISO isnt too important.

Saurat: One of the joys of DPR, reading all the pig-ignorant philistine comments about award winning photographs such as these. Hundreds of wanabee wedding photographers with their cameras permanently switched to P mode, or people who think Matt Granger and Jared Polin are great photographers, idiots who have heard of Ansel Adams but not Robert Adams, photographic club boors whose Instagram accounts are full of sunrises and macro. See you in the National Gallery.

And Brian Adams.

old_slowhand: Just had the chance to hear a lecture of Dr. Kaufmann (ex CEO and big shareholder of LEICA) last Friday on a Congress. Believe me, these guys know exactly what they are doing ;-) This is why they survived (after standing of the verge of bancrupcy) and e.g. Kodak did not. Don#t let the superficiality of this red lens fool you...

'more money than brains' is an excellent target market.

Being 2.5" drives these should be USB powered.
