On article Canon EOS M50 sample gallery (195 comments in total)

I really enjoyed this sample gallery. The pictures are great. I would love to have the M50. It looks like the photographer had a lot of fun. I wish i lived in a place as interesting as this.

racunseen: Maybe 10% better than modern smartphone camera, but smartphone has better 4k recording with less crop.

People use their phones to make calls?

Ronald TW: install solar panel and charge while flyiingggggg

The power generating ability of solar panels is very small compared to the capacity of lipo batteries. For example take a drone battery with a capacity of 5000mAh. A 6"x6" solar panel of sufficient voltage might supply 100mA on a sunny day. This means it would take 50 hours to charge the lipo battery from empty. So if a drone uses 4000mA in 20 minutes, installing solar panels on a drone might be able to increase the flight time by about 15 seconds on a sunny day.

PhotoUniverse: Does anyone else hate the term "going viral"?

What is the difference between going viral and trending?

W5JCK I you sound sad :( I hope you can find happiness in life. Perhaps the blunder you speak of is beautiful and special because of its rarity, randomness and fragility.

aramgrg: Next one will be 888d in between 88d and 90d.
So Canon has SL series, Tx series, Txi,Txs series,xyD series, xxD series in between these two, and xD series in APS-C DSLR market. Sounds little bit too much to me though.

Lol. Like Panasonic has the DC-GXx, DC-GHx, DMC-Gx, DMC-GFx, DMC-GMx. Or Olympus has the OM-D E-M1x, OM-D E-M10x , PEN E-PLx, PEN-Px, PEN F. And then there's Fuji with the X-Tx, X-Ax, X-Prox, X-Ex, X-Exs, X-Mx. Or Pentax making everything start with a K... Or Nikon start everything with a D. Its so crazy.

Rad. I am inspired to paint my drone.

I really enjoy simply flying my drone and exploring out in the wilderness. I have found that generally people get really creeped out when there is a drone flying overhead. I don't look forward to the day when a bunch of drones are flying over my kids soccer games just so people can get cool pictures to get more Facebook likes.

I would like to see the face sharper, especially the eye. Higher iso & lower aperture & faster shutter may have helped.

rexreade: I would agree with the comment below. I would add the spacing between the building and nearest street light is not visual pleasing either (for me anyways). I think with a tripod and long exposure this would be a great shot or even a different perspective i.e. crouch down low

So what you're saying in your post is that i can remove the post in post? :)
