So it was played back in reverse. But still very creative and cool

nicely done! I wonder if the movie was played backed in reverse or not.

In reply to:

semorg: Sony is making a statement with this camera. But I don't think they'll sell too many of it. Why?
Not sure who their target audience is?

Sports/Wildlife? Where is the lens selection?

Street/photojournlism? I'll take the A7Rii or rather buy 2 of them. Larger image gives me options to crop, I can have two bodies for backup or two different lenses.

So who is this camera for? Mostly to make statement that Sony mirrorless has now arrived to challenge pro-tier Nikon and Canon cameras.

@T3 - maybe for wedding. But for wedding, I would buy 2 A7Rii for the same price. The crop allows me to cheat a bit, if I need to and pull out two images from one shot.
Also many wedding shooters, love the color from Canon or like the look of Nikon. Sony is neither good at the colors and their B&W doesn't have the feel of Nikon's for some reason

On article DJI launches Phantom 4 Advanced drone (66 comments in total)

You guys need to do a better job to help consumers digest the news. This is good, but it still could be better. This is what I want to know:

Phantom 4 pro vs. Phantom 4 advance.
Lens/sensor - Video- Video bitrate - obstacle sensors - video controls, etc.
Is there a new battery or if I have a phantom 4 I can use my old phantom 4 batteries.

people, get over it! The world is become hypersensitive and protective to any activity that might be hazardous. How many people die SCUBA diving? Let's stop posting underwater photos. How many people die parachuting? Let's stop posting arial photos of skydiver.
You know what's killing people the most? Obesity! Stop posting photos F*$King food all the tim.

What is the pricing on this?

There are many players here...however, they have different firmware/software and they don't all equally work well. Dave Dugdale (learningvideo.com) has been my goto source for comparisons. But if someone has a better lead, please post it here.

This what happens when you build both the OS and device. Apple is mostly now focused on being a mobile hardware company and it shows in their profit.

At the same time, Google is a new company every other month. Android OS is just part of their focus, along with search, email, cloud computing, enterprise tools, social, phone provider, internet provider (I guess thats ending), etc.

I have both iPhone and several android devices (Samsung Galaxy S6). Android experience is horrible! I have no idea how people use it and are okay with it. With the back button that sometimes is back sometimes it closes the app. Then seeing your apps you have to tap on the app expand icon, etc. The android guys are trying to be too clever.
At the end of the day, you really have two options: iOS or android. Android builders are fighting amongst themselves to cater to emerging markets and lower portion of the market, which Apple is remaining the premium brand for people who want premium.

working conditions are equally bad in other factories. Probably even worse.

I was using the history of A7s as a reference here.

The modular design of Karma is interesting. But DJI has such a lead on GoPro that the race is almost over. I think the CEO of GoPro got distracted. I started seeing him on shows like The Shark Tank, etc. This is a sign of distraction.

I think everyone should participate! Worse case you wont get the prize. Let Hassy deal with the headache of it.
BTW, I though Hassy's X1D was targeting advanced amateur market more so than pro. So if they're really serious about their new market, I'm surprised by this. Anyways, I'm going to submit images even though I do not make more than 25% of my income from photography.
