Or... spend on travel and shoot with your "old" phone/camera.

I gotta tell you the world is so f-d up, it's getting unbearable.

She has the sale skill PLUS the understanding of what potential buyers want to see from the photos.

I just finish one of the business deal with the Property Sale Girl. It's million $$ house.

The previous home owner shot his house with the FF camera before fully edited them, to be used for saling. Six months passed by, no one bought his home.

The sale girl came with her phone camera. She snapped here, snapped there. No post editing, simply uploaded to the web site.

The house is sold in less than 2 months.

Good camera is good for serious work. But that does NOT mean phone camera is not!

dgumshu, I also laugh at the wannabe photographers who try to use the big cam with big lens shooting the circular rainbow through airplane's window.

Not to mention those noobs who are *the guests* at the Gala Dinner. What they could do most is - leaving their best artistic tools they are so love in the car - and use phone camera to shoot those decorations of the dinner.

You are the honor guest, NOT the hired photographer. But do you *dare* bringing your dSLR to the dinner for shooting?

Slapstick, did you _ever_ use your boasting camera to shoot the accident (or mishap) on the road (trekking path, jogging country) and send it, with GPS tagged, for _immediate_ help?

I do. Often. Dont ask how. You have to have the phone and know how to use it to the full beforehand.

BTW, never see cross country jogger runs with dSLR, even once in a life time!
But see lots that have cellphone ..

Last, NEVER know, or dream, even once that **anyone** could use their highly toted camera to connect to DPR, talk with people in forums while sending the photo. May your camera can?

In reply to:

raztec: I can't understand why the Drone manufacturers, instead of including their own camera, which too often has a very small sensor, don't just make a drone that has the ability to carry any small, compact point & shoot or action cam in a cargo bay. That way we can use our own cameras and get much better quality photos and they can reduce the costs and complexity of the drone.

@raztec, find spare time, start studying some techniques.
Or just look around.

The sum complexity of _any_ detachable module equipment is (a lot) higher than the integrated unit.

sh10453: It doesn't look like they have done some market study to see what the competition is selling similar products for. $440 vs. $35 seems hard to justify.

@sirhawkeye,

"like a remote cable release or a replacement lens cap or cleaning kit, I don't care about the cost, because they really won't impact imaging, but an adapter as such and filters can ruin your image if you get one that's not good quality."

Ruin image is nothing.
I had seen, with my own eyes, that the poor quality adater ruins the camera and lensesd!

Someone has luck. Thus they can say that why pays $$$ for the simple metal tube. But not everyone has ..
Not one or two.

@sh10453,
First, you never use Novoflex, so can say anything grand in front of your monitor.

Second, you know nothing about macro shooting with reverse ring. I'm rather sure that you never shoot even _once_ with it.

Imagine is greater than knowledge IFF he who can have a bit of knowledge.

neatpicture: To be honest, any portrait of Steve advertised and used as it did would have been iconic.
I do not see this image to carry anything else but Steve personality. Sure a clean image, but that is all it is in my opinion.

@neat, like to hear answer from you. Could you do the "simple portrait shooting" like this one.
Portraiting is not like boasting which #any# keyboard guru could do fascinately.

@Jst13, no one forces you to buy it!

These lenses are for those who want MORE, even starting with light, small & cheap.

///M: the tech exists to make Li Ion batteries that do not catch fire, why isn’t it being implemented? the patent holder should be paid, abd the batteries manufactured asap

The safety tech would make the size bigger and the power storage lower. That's marketting disaster.

Today 20 W-hr battery size &nweight is less than 30% of the one ten years ago.

turretless: "...the FAA found that if one were heated to the point where it caught fire near an aerosol can..."
Yeah, sure. And if it caught fire near a pile of lose gunpowder... Oh, wait, it's not very probable, right?

FAA is one of the greatest champions of institutional paranoia. Only Transport Canada is worse. So here goes a new assault on freedom and convenience for sake of "safety". Actually they should've suggested to ban passengers. It's much safer this way.

@turretless, I do not ASS-U-me as you did. I learnt, now work, as aviation safety crew.

On photo Butter that flies in the Fisheye lens challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dutch Newchurch: This image is commended by the challenge host. I certainly didn’t expect to see a mid-air shot of a butterfly entered in this challenge.

Use remote control. Manual focusing the FE. Set f/stop to 8. Set continuous shot, high burst.

Gently put the camera in between the flock of butterfly, lens UP.
Light the incense stck.

Then, clapse you hands!!! and pess the shutter.

IF they were not that paranoid, MAJOR air traffic tragedy would change from 1 per HUNDRED MILLION flights to 1 per hundred thousand!

Wish you die in pieces.

In reply to:

Michael Engelen: Actualy I didn't hear much about Li-Ion-batteries for cameras in the video. Plus I only saw laptop/notebook batteries that were exploding. Plus --like a few other people mentioned: -- who checks-in their camera stuff? What about a kickstarter offering a nice case/belt for all the litium batteries that people are carrying around (incl. one area for the smartphone). This issue should be able to be solved quickly...

And: WHY are Li-Ion-batteries exploding? I didn't get the reason yet. Just to have them in place is for sure not the reason

Most Li battery has folded electrodes structure, separated by (*very thin*) separator. Almost capacitor-like.

IF some accident (such as strong vibration) occurs, causing the electrode to touch the other, disaster happens!

The $100 ornament that can take picture. Not bad, not bad.

khunpapa: Another marketing hype.

The f/0.67 is theoretical good in light gathering. BUT that microlens in front of the sensor dictate how much light the sensor could get.

In summary, even you have f/0.1 lens in front of the camera, the f/1.4 microlens would allow on f/1.4 light to pass!.

This truth has been revealed years ago. Why everyone still believe in f/0.xx 'low light monster' hype????

You need more RAM and CPU power for your brain upgrade.

khunpapa: Really, really want to know. There is NO premium compact film camera on this Earth before???

Even not counting Leica and those Big Five, for me, there are already over 20 models of such film camera in the second hand market.

Are you SURE that this one has spare part after 5 years? WHO does test it rigorously for the reliability of the shutter mechanism ?

Fine if you wanna decieve yourself as those film wannabes do.

khunpapa: Free for google, but not for the customers who want to have their ad banner to the uploaded clip.

They can't.
Suppose I shoot the location of the 'Galaxy Beir Hous' with the card board at the left lower of the camera angle showing "sponsored by GBH. Then I upload the clip of this GBH, with (digital) running banner.
Would they have enough time to examine all those clips?

Talk about that card board advertising.

If I'm the politician, I would told my team to shoot the clip of every single corner of my town (province, county) with that card board which have "free location support by KhunPapa, your best serviceman" written on it.

The $3,500 is (really!) dirt cheap for mass campaign.
