It's really unfortunate that we have to go through this - mainly because there is always some idiot setting a bad precedent.

I do appreciate DJI trying to make this as safe as possible. But I am really concerned with my privacy. In theory, I can't even take a selfie in my backyard 5' away, because I am in a "warning zone"... Sure, a drone is a weapon in the wrong hands, but so is a car/truck. Still, Toyota is not snitching on me. Yes, they could easily keep a "black box" recording my speed at all times. And cars do kill thousands. Dones so far? - ZERO.

But Toyota understands - they are not the police. It's not their job to police people because we have actual police. If everyone polices everyone, there would be chaos. So thank you Toyota. DJI - will never buy from you.

Time-lapse video in linear mode! that's all I wanted to be added. I know, we all have different uses, this is mine.

I hope this update would bring at least some of the new features to the 5, via firmware.

I cringe whenever the word "trump" is used as a verb (first line). I know, nothing wrong with the language, and I love English and dpreview great journalism, but my heart and skin tell me otherwise...

SandySandy: The tech or feature increments on GoPros are shamelessly minor. Terribly negligible. And very distasteful for a company that has been a leader in its Market for the longer.

Having said that I think the Least that the NEXT GoPro should have should include:
1. 4k 60p. 1080 240p.
2. OIS and RID.
3. 100mbps Bitrate for 4k and maybe 4-2-2 8-bit.

Just like Apple - annual release with marginal improvements.

I have ONE item on my wish list from GoPro - time-lapse video in linear mode - in-camera correction, please. Otherwise, the hardware is awesome as is.

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...

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.
