One thing I want to know - focal length of the two cameras - should I guess 24mm and 56mm?

This "edge to edge" is presented as a "feature" - to me, this is a drawback...

On article Fujifilm X-E3 Review (738 comments in total)

X-E1 was my first Fujifilm. I would have never imagined that just a simple camera could change everything (previously used dslrs for a decade)... It just worked for me, somehow. Ignited that little spark or creativity. Thanks, Fujifilm!

36 firefighters, eight port authority officers, and seven port authority rescuers.

51 people. Two questions - 1 - isn't the number excessive? 2 - Who's paying?

No thanks DJI. You need to ensure our privacy and remove restrictions. Policing what we do is not your job. "aircrafts" are dangerous, yes, but I haven't heard of a casualty ever... meanwhile, people die in car accidents all the times. Toyota is not policing the use of their cars. Because we have actual police... DJI needs to take a step back. Then we can talk...

arhmatic: Should you upgrade to a Nikon D850?

Maybe. Unless you've switched to mirrorless already. In which case, the answer is definitely no.

Not worth taking the specs apart line by line... we're all different - style, needs, preferences. It looks like you prefer DSLR - enjoy!

In reply to:

pro photo 2011: Nikon and Canon cameras somehow never look all that different; they are very boring. Can't they be more creative? If they were car makers, they would have gone out of biz a long time ago.

Absolutely.

The same old lame excuse "it's a pro-camera. it's a tool. we've refined it to this..." therefore, leave it like a lame melted soap bar. I must say it and leave it to this - DSLR camera design is the least creative form of industrial design that I can ever think of.

Great camera. Now let's focus on the mirrorless equivalent.

EskeRahn: And WHO is going to believe that they stay offline, if afraid of DJI transmitting data in the first place??

They are only offline if you are offline. Once you connect, there is no guarantee.

This "incognito mode" is a good step, but not sufficient. What if my flight records are saved in the app and uploaded to their servers at a later time? I really need 100% privacy, DJI...

I really don't like having a private company policing that I do. If I do break the law, let me do it on my own terms, and let the actual police act, as they consider.

I like this. Simple and unpretentious.

arhmatic: I know that your entry level mirrorless is just as light, but again, it's an entry level.

Most importantly, consider the volume. Most DSLR are just as bubbly as a soap bar. You might call it "design" but really, it's not. Less is more when it comes to industrial design. Random curves everywhere... why? Even microwave ovens are bubbly and round. "Aerodynamics?" NO, just NO. Simple and square and we can talk... So this is why Olympus, Fujifilm are winners when it comes to the sheer volume of the object, even if weight is similar to a D3500.

That's one opinion... let's move on.

Jozef M: Oz??? Gram??? Dpreview could do the mats for us decimal users, that would be helpfull and nice.

Still not clear why dpreview is so stubborn about units. Under 1/3 of the audience is from the US. Just do metric already!

rrccad - no need to be sarcastic. If you can't add to this, just leave it to others.

stevo23: Drop the drones. Shotguns, nets, jammers, whatever it takes. I'm getting tired of this aggravating noise pollution. They have their place, but when they have invaded so many of the places we go to for peace and quiet, it's time to kick them out.

Gun shots outweigh the drone appearances in what I've seen. So relax. Go after NRA if you have that much anger in you.

Link | Posted on Aug 9, 2017 at 15:21 UTC

So many people complain about drones being a nuisance...

I live in San Franciso, a highly touristy place. I've seen TWO in the past few years. I got more seagulls shi**ing on my head than drones flying over me. I heard more gunshots than drones.

So to all the whiners - relax. If you have that much anger in you, go after the NRA.
