Dante Birchen: Where is the option. None. 2017 sucked for entry level.

There's your answer.

There are very good reasons - which you should be able to figure out for yourself - why convicted criminals should not have access to this material.

stevo23: If you outlaw drones, soon only the bad guys will have drones...

Except that is not what the government is doing. A bit less of the hysteria if you don't mind.

Time this over-bureaucratic relic of the Obama administration was removed.

@GaryJP I guess not liking Trump stops me from being a 'Trumphead'. But carry on telling lies if it makes you feel better.

ybizzle: Apple is the king of selling overpriced crap to its fanboys and the trend continues...

How cool and edgy of you to dislike a popular brand. And using such clever and grown-up words like 'crap' and 'fanboy'.

Form an orderly line, ladies.

Oh dear. PC wins this round as well.

Didn't vote for Trump, not Republican, not American. Anything else you want to be wrong about?

Wubslin: As a non-owner of both I can say that the non-ownership experience is exceptional, with the minor caveat that my wallet is weighing me down quite a bit.

@SirSeth - guess how I became so averse to spending money

Wubslin: The best one I don't buy means more money for me... keep buying the shiny toys. My investments are counting on you.

I'm definitely thinking of not getting the Nikon D5 this year. It's really expensive so the savings will be huge.

In reply to:

Stigg: oh happy day! the cameras are going to ship out!

soon it will be un-boxing day celebrations.

immediately followed by "test" photo day celebrations and the many shots of random plastic objects.

next on the calendar will be "look at this shot!" day, a day of very ordinary photos.

and finally there will "complete and utter boredom with this camera" day, which will usher in the "demand for a new camera" day.

and so it is in the world of DP.

I have found a sure-fire way of avoiding this never-ending cycle of acquisition and misery. Send me $50 to learn the secret.

Well, now the question of what not to spend my money on has become *slightly* more dull while the fans have another bone to fight over...

Maybe if I spend my money on neither, and invest it instead... that would be much more sensible. Enjoy your debt.

Alantkh: Did he download sensitive information from Dji servers? If he did, it’s illegal and I think Dji has a case

@Alantkh You admitted in your OP that you have no evidence that he downloaded any of their data. Has that changed?

Too bad they went to radio silence then isn't it?

Is there any evidence that he downloaded it? The radio silence from them implies that he didn't, otherwise there'd be legal proceedings landing right now.

But it's much more fun to speculate without evidence isn't it?

Funny how my Nikon does perfectly fine at astrophotography.
