Sirandar: If I lost or destroyed my Note 4 this would be on my wish list.

My Note 4 has been such a fantastic phone I would rather wish it doesn't die ... than wish for a new phone.

I might have some interest in the 128Gb version Google Pixel but sadly it costs 1200$ Cdn and isn't even available .... The web site says they will email me when it is. Morbid curiosity made me check this.

The 128Gb option is 150$ .... I picked up a 128Gb card for my Note 4 for 69$ and Android 6.0.1 actually handles it well now.

I can relate and agree. I reluctantly upgraded to the Note 7 and my gOD it was a beast. Awsome except for curved screen and sealed battery and glass back. Screen broke then they took it off me...
The canera was stellar though

I'd been given an Olympus Trip for my 20th birthday. A few months later I brought an AE1. A few years went buy and one day at a nig music festival in the late 90's a friend had an EOS1000. That camera blew my mind with it's auto focus anx all so I brought an EOS A2E. Well that was stolen so a year later I brought an EOS 3. Still got that camera. It is an amazing peice of equipment. The last of the film based EOS cameras.
Then in 2003 whilst at the Gold Coast Indy Car race I noticed a few photographers using these new digital cameras. After a few chats I was sold. I came home to Melbourne and brought an EOS 10D. Wow. But $300 for a 128 MB card was a very limiting factor. New L series lenses followed. All of these cameras had been second hand and cost thousands each. That 10D changed everything and it started a 15 year catch up game of chasing storage space. Eventually I setup a 5 bay NAS giving 11TB in a raid 5 as a backup to an internal 11TB raid 5. I filled them pretty quickly to.
After a few years I was primed to finaly buy a brand new camera, the mighty EOS 1D mark3. Double wow. Then came a 1D mark4 followed buy the stunning 1DX.
I made a small amount of money with them peaking with 4 years of shooting the Australian Open Tennis.
I hope to upgrade again but we'll see.
What an awsome ride it's been, from load your own B&W film and darkroom to a pocket full of 32GB cards and terrabytes of duplicated raid storage.

dgumshu: Well, there are peeping tom laws too... and I don't see exceptions for drone operators. Laws or no laws, if someone gets upset due to privacy issues, the drone is likely coming down... that's just life.

I just moved into a new house and the first thing I did was take down the curtains, I like the view. If someone wants to photograph my beanbag on the odd occasion I walk nudy into the lounge room good luck to em. ..ii00ii..

thubten: If someone knocks me out with a drone, I will reciprocate with a hammer

The first, second and third time someone ran into me on my motorcycle with their car I didn't scits out and on their car, I didn't even sue em.
Can't see me doing that to a flying camera either

h2k: In itself i don't feel it's great. It's greatly enhanced by the photographer's words.

Wonder why you didn't mention where it was published or who commissioned the photographer or if he was a freelancer on his own.

He's a freelance photographer and a great man
