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.

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.

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.

What if the drone kills someone on the ground while free falling? Who is responsible?

Hey Apple why would you follow something I am already doing? Makes no sense...

Probably one of the best news I am reading on dpreview... Not that I hate it, but because it leaves room for the real mirrorless system that we all want.

So canon did sell a dozen copies that they built... Good for them.

next step - find great-grandsons of the subjects and let them have the photos.

arhmatic: So we're all agreeing that there is absolutely no way this would fit into a Nikon F2 sized body right?

(I'm talking simple volume, let's leave style out of this...)

@bgmonroe did not forget. the screen adds 3mm to the back. a D800 is at least twice the volume

@notpc --- please read my comment carefully. "I'm talking simple volume, let's leave style out of this..." where did I mention retro? I clearly talk sheer body volume!

Have they just launched a Nikon Dance Division? Otherwise, still not clear what the vision is...

cdembrey: I live in California, and every fire-season there are many instances for drones disrupting water drops. It's been going on since drones became available to hobbyists.

Drones injuring people on the ground, at events like parades, are becoming common. Something draconian needs to be done!

In reply to:

PAntunes: If all you have to do is ask for a temporary licence from DJI, it seems quite ok. It's the same as shooting on any location. I can't just show up on the day and ask. I have to inform the location that I want to shoot there and wait for approval.

Anyone filming or photographing professionally is used to do this.

The only problem is if the maps aren't correct. Apart from that, I see no problem.

what are you smoking?

First - DJI is not entitled to police anything, just like gun makers are not entitled to permit you to shoot.

Second - How is this different than taking a panorama from my 10th-floor apartment building? Do I have to inform Nikon for that?

A VERY short term solution - don't update the app... Eventually... oh man...

arhmatic: Personally, I would have been happy to have my photo used worldwide, wikipedia included, and leave it at that... why even ask wikipedia to take it down? (with or without credits?)

It already went viral, got his name everywhere, it is a success! Just stop paying lawyers!

Seriously, Slater's website is getting MANY thousands of hits from people like us reading this. Be smart and capitalize on this! I'd personally be thrilled!
