Chillbert: How feasible would it be to program a drone to do this, thus avoiding the awkward arm-in-the-air part? Can drones be programmed? Can they fly fast enough and maneuver tightly enough? Just curious.

would be difficult to get a non racing drone to go in that tight of circle at that speed you could always do it with playing with frame rates and playback speed with a drone but it would not be the same effect are real time

Aaron@Utah: still one feature they left off or at least I see no mention of it
in Timelapse mode you can't have the built in camera intervolmeter you can't keep the camera going after the movement has stopped you can give it a ramp in and out time but no way to keep the shutter tripping after movement has stopped

example you wanted to track the sun or moon across the sky and then have the camera keep recording exposures at the spot were the sun or moon goes over the horizon and vise versa if you wanted to start recording a sun/moon rise hours before they appear then start tracking when they actually appear

I hope they add this firmware feature into future units call them pre / post movement record times

syrp if your monitoring make it happen it could done via firmware updates to current models

@ benryan
Thank you for you reply do you know if that feature or one similar without the fey frames could be added to the genie mini first version firmware update ?

if not I will have to consider getting a mini II so far I have just used a combination of an external interval meter and the mini to accomplish the same effect but that's kind of a pain

should be named "lasso" view as this is what its going to look like with people going down ski slopes bikers surfers runners you name it anyone in motion rather than standing still with this thing

I might freak out a horse though if you actually used it like a lasso in a rodeo
although I still want to see that shot

Adam Palmer: It would never happen but wouldn't it be amazing if all full frame cameras got together and agreed on a mount.

@ Oddie why would you think that sony A mount glass is going to work better on a Canikon mirrorless than they do on the current and future Sony E-mount bodies? after all sony is the one that makes the A-mount to E-mount adapters
which reduces possible compatibility issues
I highly doubt that Canikon are going to make those adapters as long they are still selling their own lenses fact is the sony A-mount is a dead mount there is just no market for these adapters IMHO

dan_darkroom: #2 - was that airport shot done legally?

I mean, seems a few tried that in Heathrow and failed because of some silly officials with no sense of beauty that put airline safety over stunning images.

did you not read the description of how the picture was taken?

"I had dreams of documenting the motion at SFO and [arranged] permission to fly directly overhead."

le_alain: Oh no, another Impossible with this mount 0.95 50mm for Sony.

zeppelin yes and the likely reason they are not producing them due to there is no demand for them
I am glad sony is not wasting money on producing super expensive 1.0 and 1.2 lens for a very very small market I would rather them spend the R&D money on more mainstream lenses to fill in the gaps in the lens line up before going after super super small market of 1.2 or faster lenses

Its clearly a camera aimed at the VLog crowd it is what it is
I am just curious if the built in timelapse feature is not just a dumb intervolmeter and actually has some of the features of the timelapse app the biggest one being able to create a movie preview of the timelapse for when you don't really need a 4k timelapse from raw images and just want something small and quick and easily grabbed off the sd card with out all the post processing headaches of timelapse in general

Not really sure who is ever going to buy a 6300 from this point on though

These same cops would arrest a private citizen for using one of these to "get around the law"

Sony RX100 VI great little compact full of features bit pricey comparably speaking though

Link | Posted on Jan 2, 2019 at 22:41 UTC as 5th comment

the side by side is a bit of an unfair comparison as the darker background of the 58mm shot doesn't do justice to the biggest screaming defect of the iphone and IMHO bad rendering of all the stray hairs just being lopped off
which would even be more dramatic if the side by sides were switched
the IPhone AI cutoff of the stray hairs is horrendous to put it mildly

Rensol: Yepp.
Bokeh on 1.4 (or 1.2 as a matter of fact) would be better!

yea if you can find a 15mm 1.4 or 1.2 closest I have seen is the sigma 14mm 1.8
