On article DJI announces new Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 drones (63 comments in total)

DJI Is proving they're not only becoming the leading drone hardware company, but with this rate the leading camera maker as well. I'm a recent drone convert (DJI P4) and I love it. however, it's as if DJI was in my head and listened to all my wish lists and delivered the P4 pro. It has all the things I was reasonably expecting maybe more.
I'm really impressed by DJI and how they were able to release 3 new drones (they're upgraded but it might as well be new drones given how much the changed) in a short time frame. I'm very impressed by them.

The market is saturated with gimbals. Why this model? How is it any better? Why should I care? copy and pasting PR does not add much value to DPR's readers.

Eric Calabros: iPhone killer? Are you joking? XL image is full of moire, oversharpening artifacts and horrible chroma noise everywhere. iPhone7 is softer but way cleaner, natural and WB is accurate.

I saw the the iPhone 7 plus image, and I think it's tester's error on this one or sample variation. I believe iphone7 and 7+ use the same wide angle lens.

comparing to iPhone 7. The "RAW" seems already heavily manipulated by Google. So it's hard to compare them. But Google's seem to have more noise and more CA.

incredible imagination this guy has...I would have never thought of doing a model shoot like this in a lava field in a million years. I would have take all sort of landscape photos...but his model work is way ahead of everyone else. He is the modern day Avadon or Leibovitz.

semorg: This and Karma are the most consequential cameras of 2016. Every camera announced this year will not change your photography ability, but the drone will give you a whole new photography ability that hasn't been possible with SLR, mirrorless, mobile, etc.

@dash2k8 you can make the same point about mobile phone vs smallish camera. But look what the camera and mobile phone has done. I have a phantom 4 and have carried it on 1-2 hour hikes along with my gear. It's doable but not all that fun. having something that you can pull out and unfold and fire up will make a huge difference. Talking about OP, I was comparing it with everything else announced at photokina and I still stand by my comment, there was nothing announced by any other camera makers that will unleash more potential this year than Mavic, etc.

We've had drone for a while, but try hiking with a phantom 4 plus your regular camera equipment. It's not that much fun

This will be cloned by Chinese companies in 2-3 months and you can buy it on eBay for $50

Great interview. Probably one of the best things I've read on DPR in years.
And yes, what a nice an unassuming guy Emmanuel is.

This is a rebranded Tamron lens which has good reviews on B&H and it's a fair prices for an image stabilized lens.

On article Behind the Shot: Crystalline (46 comments in total)
In reply to:

semorg: thanks of sharing, but I don't think it's a great article.
I'm not sure if the article is about composition, HDR technique or post-processing.

1 - if it's composition, for me it doesn't work and the image has no draw. At least for me.
2 - if it's about HDR technique. I think the HDR is not that great and it doesn't add that much more DR to the image with all the blown-out highlights.
3 - if it's about post-processing technique, then it's EVEN WORSE. Because I noticed you are using different color temperature in your different frames. ANY ONE knowing anything about panorama stitching knows not to leave their Color Balance in "As Shot" mode. It's a biggest no-no.

However, your article remind me. Perhaps I should write something on panorama and HDR panos. As I have done a bunch of them and it seems like yourself and others can benefit from it.

fair enough
