Anny Bobanny: If you have an IPad get Lumafusion for 30 bucks. An amazing intuitive underpriced video editing software for beginners and advanced users.

Lumafusion is awesome, but I often to back to Rush to access my motion graphics I'd created in Premiere to create "on the fly" while I'm on my iPad. So I welcome this addition. Rush never did well on it's own. Bundling it with photographers who might want a simple way to get stuff to YouTube or Social video sharing is the perfect tool to include.

For our business, in our last year we've done a lot more mobile recording of announcements from our executive team or other key business leaders recording intros for virtual events and such. We have worked to construct a similar kit, but I'm in awe of what was created here. Having the ability to sit this on a desk, plug it in, and open a lid and press record... That's huge when you are dealing with a business user who isn't super camera fluent.

Saying this is for a "YouTuber" is probably not an appropriate way to judge this (haven't watched yet, only going by the headlines)... This is the perfect kit to setup a team or business with a plug and play studio setup and little manual instruction.

Super Inspirational Caleb.

deep7: They've been on my blacklist for years! That's because it's entirely my business where and when I fly my drones and I see zero reasons to be connecting one to the internet.

Like most people, what the U.S.A. does is of very little interest to me, though it's easy to see why they'd take this stand. The question now is how does that affect Hasselblad? Are they still largely owned by D.J.I.?

Chad... I think the concern is not with where you are flying... but if you were a foreign power and wanted to snoop or spy on an area for whatever reason... If you have access to a device that you can someone else to buy that when you use it would map, record and potentially share that "intel" with someone. It makes it much easier for someone to provide surveillance on an area. So it's less about you and what you do... but providing someone with ability to more easily snoop.

Which... I mean... just go to YouTube or Google earth and get the footage there, really... I guess blocking it this way makes it a little easier to safeguard. [shrugs] I don't know. I get it. I don't like it, but I get it. Do I think someone is monitoring it in China? Probably not...

Should have had a tripod socket, 4K video and then include an adapter to fit with "popular action camera" adapters and now you have a very competitive product!

David610: If this had 2400p resolution it might be worthwhile ... but at 408x259mm it is too big for many desks and too small for most walls. $100AUD/year for full Meural art library membership ... LOL. Pass.

The original Meural was stunning. It was wall art sized (16x20 and a bigger model?) When I first saw it I walked past it at a show and dismissed it as an art canvas on an easel. But then it moved in the corner of my eye and then had to take a look. Their displays are stunning. The wall version LOOKS like a painting. It has sensors in the front to recognize gestures to navigate the menus or bring up a placard for info of the painting. The Meural Art was intended for corporate/business displays that would want something special that changes... It's really a higher end market they were going for. I was hoping for a photo version of it and can't wait to see it in person if it's anything like the ones that came before it!

fusoexplorer: Okay they both announced these lights at the same time. They must be the same company!!

Or godox manufacturers for Profoto? (or vice versa)

Ryan Villanueva: I know a lot of kids who use FB daily. Would not like them seeing some nude person on their newsfeed. Keep it family friendly Facebook.

How hard is it to program a "safe search" feature? They already have a "potentially disturbing" filter with a click to show for gorey news images. Why is that more acceptable than a naked body (artistic or otherwise)? It's how we were born and fully natural after all.

ZeBebito: I can think of 42 better things to do than watching 42 minutes of this.

He consulted a photography lawyer for his input as well as his years of conducting business as a photographer and understand the nature of what is required for the business. So, yeah, it was.

PaulProz: I wonder if he uses AirBnb and Uber? They've done similarly crappy things to other industries.

@paulProz - I think you missed the point. Zack isn't complaining about a clever idea. He's outlining a legal issue that should be taught to every designer or photographer in school.

It's more like someone deciding they can cook good and home and opens a catering business without understanding food safety laws. it's all fine until someone get ill. #KnowYourBusiness is what he's saying.

Your right... It's probably not important to invest time learning about legal pitfalls of your business and industry when there is Netflix! </sarcasm>

Advertisement? I saw the stories as warnings...

Gravis: young beautiful girls should not make love without being paid because this devaluates service from professional sex workers and is killing prostitution :-)

@Lars V, I believe I heard they do have a clause about needing a release and shoudn't submit trademark. Where Unsplash falls down is that they don't verify it exists. And Unsplash grants the license to the end user. I know both videos with this one and Zack's are long, but it's in there and really worth watching the whole thing(s).
