  • Seems like you have decided then.  There will be a lot more competition for 4K + stabilisation next year and the prices are likely to drop quite fast but currently it is just the Hero 6 and Yi ...
  • If you are using video mode rather than photo mode and it is not on a tripod then yes, you normally want stabilisation of some sort and the built in EIS is much more convenient than a separate ...
  • A lot of the really cheap 4K ones record 4K, but have 4MP sensors, only half the required pixels for real 4K! If you don't mind 1080 60fps then have a look at the Gitup G3, has the same sensor as ...
  • Replied in Overexposure
    It can still do it even with a pure red led light, it is quite common for red LED traffic lights to turn yellow because the green pixels in our sensors are slightly sensitive to red light as well ...
  • Nice image, but it needs some stabilisation! Or at least mounting on a heavy monopod/selfie stick while not on the violin.  Looks like it was being hand held and mounted on nothing while on the beach.
  • If your action cam videos are made by walking around slowly using slow motion to slow things down even more, then maybe that is what you want, but to many people that is not what they want from an ...
  • Provision 94, paragraph 4 starts off: "The person in charge of a small unmanned aircraft which has a mass of more than 7kg...". Most consumer drones, including mine weigh a lot less than that so...

  • To confirm that this is a correct interpretation of the rules, you can look at some of the airprox investigation reports, eg 2017137 states "Cause: The Board agreed that although the drone was...

  • The UK drone code is a guide to safe flying, not the law. The legal height limit depends on the type of drone, what rules you are following, and what permission you have for the flight.

    Under FPV...

  • The issue is that they are fixed focus so that everything is in focus, but in reality then are all out of focus closer than about 80cm unless you open them up and refocus the lens.  You can use ...
  • Radio waves don't go through water and the transmissions are quite weak anyway, so the only solution is to have a cable. Some action cameras do have video output and most have HDMI output so a ...
  • They do have some older cheaper versions, I was just pointing out that that a DSLR maybe isn't the best choice for an aerial camera, depending on what you are doing. I just saw the new news story ...
  • A DSLR is too heavy for a Phantom, you need something bigger like DJI's Inspire which would have no problem, although you would be better off using one of DJI's cameras. http://www.dji.com/zenmuse- ...
  • I read that it can stabilise 4K, but now I'm thinking maybe 25fps is the maximum frame rate for 4K stabilisation, I don't have one to try... Stabilisation at 1080 looks really good compared to the Yi.
  • Maybe a response to their new competitor from their old partner - the Xiaomi Mijia Mini 4K  which is available for $100, gives stabilised 4K @ 30fps and is getting some good reviews. OK, it can't ...
  • Deliberately soft, I get a lot of complaints if I post that sort of image with a lot of sharpening! Also, since they were destined for display in a web browser that is almost certain to resize ...
  • Some Autumn images extracted from video:
  • Replied in Camcorder
    There may be a bit of confusion here... You asked about dashcams before, where HDR was mentioned. As far as I know, there are currently no dashcams that produce HDR video, however there are ...
  • I guess the reason it is never done is that it would not be possible without having all the cameras visible in the image. It is certainly possible to do, maybe even using normal stitching software?
  • Replied in Un-Dashcam
    It is a bit old-tech, uses a lithium battery instead of a super capacitor (not good for summer heat) and an OV4689 sensor - a decent sensor but has been used in dashcams for years and is now used ...
