On article DJI Spark Review: Small but mighty (125 comments in total)

how good are these consumer drones in cold weatherm does anyone know? the working temperatures advertised leave a lot to be desired if you live in colder winter climates.

YES! U-Point technology rules! Well for my modest needs anyway :)

It's 2 teams - that says it all. They'll compete for funding. The one with the bigger user base will win. Guess which one that is.
Besides we've heard these promises before:

I hate to say it, but the future of photography is mobile and cloud oriented, as photographers we will have to find ways to adapt.

vinrouge0: That leaf shutter is going to allow for some very creative flash/ambients shots but doesn't get much of a mention so far. I understand most of the negative comments but it would be a very good travel/carry around camera for most people - not videographers though.

this might give you an idea https://fujilove.com/flash-fuji-and-leaf-shutters/

BelePhotography: didn't someone actually make a digital sensor like this - one that just fit into any 35mm camera. that kind of made sense and would probably be worth trying again, especially now that we could easy control settings with bluetooth or wireless - or some kind of gimmick that'd be attached to the camera. if this however is sensible, I'm not too sure. it'll give the kids of 2000 a sense of what it was like to change film to change ISO, but that's about it. if they're into that - let 'em have it - I have had it ;-)

yes, I remember that one. but there's still this: https://nikonrumors.com/2012/12/17/nikon-patents-a-digital-back-for-35mm-film-slr-cameras.aspx/

In reply to:

desertsp: Is the EIS anything more than a dynamically shifted crop? Maybe it would be possible to store the full sensor data and enable/disable the EIS during playback or export?

my thoughts exactly - yes it's stable but 20% is missing.

BelePhotography: Meanwhile they haven't tested a Samsung since S6... just saying. I'm sure iPhone is great, I'd just like to know how it measures up against S7 and S8.

I stand corrected - S7 just wasn't added to the list above. Why?

LMCasey: Kodak could have been on the leading edge of digital photography, but they were too slow, too blind. Now they are reduced to this.

Yes they certainly could have Roland. The first digital camera was made by an Eastman Kodak engineer in 1975. They even had the patent for the first digital stills camera. Their management just didn't believe in the technology.

matthew saville: Further proof that no self-respecting landscape photographer should ever be caught dead with a Mefoto in the outdoors. Any company that sells a tripod with the center column permanently fixed in the extended position AND with a center column extender, ....I cringe when I see someone in the field with one...

I mainly shoot on the beach - like I said, whatever.

Matthew - I take it you haven't really used one. 1 year of heavy usage tells me it's all good. Read some reviews and you'll see I'm not the only one of this opinion. If you feel like spending more money and dragging more equipment along on the road, that's your decision. MeFoto isn't a cheap startup company by the way - it's a spinoff line from Benro (same group as Tenba). As I said each to his own.

Leonp: Here in The Netherlands 1080p compression on 'interactive TV' is awful too, but nobody ever notices. Hardly anybody ever turns their smartphone 90 degrees to view a photo of video fullscreen too. So most young people, never watching TV, think photo's and video's are no bigger than about 2 inches in diagonal. So 8K ......?

I talked to some people in television here in Switzerland. It seems most companies are planning to skip 4k as it's not worth the investment on their side and they knew 8K was coming for the olympics this year (well it seems they were almost right). like you however I see no immediate need for neither 4k nor 8k television. 8k mobile streaming capabilities is what is needed so that our young ones can connect their mobile phones to a 8k miracast screen and watch minecraft pokemon edition youtube videos in 8k.

In reply to:

BelePhotography: Did someone actually manage to open a NEF file in Lightroom mobile. So far I've been unable test this feature as the files won't open (Samsung S7 + Nikon D750/D500)

It is the Android version. So I still need my laptop to get to my raw files. That's pretty pointless.
