I am based in the UK.

The laws re drones are changing in 2022 I believe and drones will need to fall into categories. Therefore new drones will need CE certification?

So why has DJI omitted to do this.

Mr Moo: Sorry, Fuji...the long press does not fix the issue on my copy of the X-T30, I still get many accidental presses. I agree with others who suggest a double press instead.

Another user who find the firmware did not fix the Q button issue :(

Who in the fuji design team decided this was a good place to put the button. I am at the point of downgrading back to a X-T20

tocar: I wished Canon used an articulating screen instead of a tilting one. I will stay with my 70D and the original M as I don't really see a monumental reason to get the M5. The 5D IV looks more enticing but then again I have the 5DII which still takes great pictures. Decisions decisions.

Having had a M3 I actuallulike the way the screen tilts

Bruce702: With any product, "a product is only as good as it's company's support." And, I have to say the DJI's customer support is continuing to bring itself down. There's too many reports/posts of people fed up with DJI. They've become "too big for their 'britches.' " If anyone's done their homework, the latest and greatest (for the money) is Autel's X-Star Premium. Their customer support is terrific. They aim to please. Plus, they have a great product. Even better, their pricing is a great value. Don't just take my word for it, read customer reviews. With CES 2017 coming soon, there should be some updates and new products to satisfy anyone in the drone/UAV/RPA market.

I have to agree re DJI's customer service. As for the Mavic, assuming you can get one without paying a high premium on eBay, just rear the forums about the many anoyed people who are still waiting for theirs to be delivered

CFster: Unbelievable. You guys forgot the best camera drone of them all - the Autel XSP. It has been proven to have the best video of any drone short of a P4 Pro.

You mean the blatant Phantom copy
