Smart feature for a sports oriented camera

I hope it's possible to get in closer, or maybe NASA needs to send a back up first, no matter what, great stuff!

RonnieJ: The truth is a Canon or Nikon user can use their existing lenses on the Alpha system so this article makes no sense.
The A7 series and now A9 are and will be used by many pros who can use their existing Lenses from numerous brands. It's already happening and will continue.
Blah blah blah

:)

This was mentioned in the article so your comment makes no sense

Gollan: I'm interested in a 360° camera, with better resolution than the Ricoh Theta and with parents that love it more than Nikon's Keymission 360, so the GoPro name caught my attention, but - wow - that video is bad. I don't know what to say.

watch it again on a device that supports 360 panning, a whole world of difference

User9362470513: Genuine question - what's the point? It doesn't look good, induces sea sickness and looks like a gimmick that quickly wears thin. Not sure who would want to make or watch this sort of distorted footage.

Yeah, safari does not play back in the correct format where you can control your own viewing angle. Use chrome instead.

K e n n e t h: I want to see real world images from that stacked CMOS sensor

It is not a 3 layer foveon like sensor. The stacking refers to how the cmos sensor and circuit hardware are mated together.

3DSimmon: Good and well timed artical, I was looking into these 3 for video. 5 axis stabilization on the 2 newer models caught my eye, I wonder why it is limited it to video only though?

Aha, thx for pointing that out.

Nukunukoo: Another 3-axis stabilizer. Address the Z and you may be on to something. (big yawn)

y axis is up and down in this case because the sensor plane is tilted to an up right position, so z axis would be walking forwards and backwards, something no stabilizer I know of can compensate for.

jwasturias: Magnets, such an "attractive" solution.

Very true, but one really needs to think about the positive and negative sides of this system.

Not suprised, great cameras, just over priced.

SmilerGrogan: The best reason to buy this camera is to preserve your marriage and save your relationships with your kids.
NEVER, EVER take your DSLR or mirrorless on vacation because everyone will get mad when you stop to change lenses or otherwise fiddle with your gear. And the anger will build as the vacation goes on.
Instead, bring this, it completely prevents any resentment from building up. And at $429, it's much, much, much cheaper than divorce or even marriage counseling.
You're welcome.

This is soo true!

B E: Fail. This is not going to be practical for serious photo editing work. When you spend 8+ hours a day working with a pen, you absolutely need a flat surface to rest your arm on, ie a regular tablet. You also want the screen to be upright, not only for proper ergonomics, but also for reducing reflections and glare (you need it to be dark behind you, ie no light sources that can reflect off the screen), and the screen preferably has to be matt. Hovering your arm over this glossy screen, tilted upwards to reflect the ceiling lights, covered in fingerprints... it is just wrong in every way.

You can still rest your arm when the screen is at 20°

Looking forward to the 3d and vr update!

Oli4D: Interesting for sure... but a glossy screen?
No thank you.

How do you know it has a glossy screen?

Clyde Thomas: I'd like to see a poll that weighs the concern for privacy against those who've actually had their privacy violated by a drone. This thread makes it sound like many here have been violated. How could anyone know if their privacy has been violated? Do people find videos of themselves randomly on YouTube?

Type in your address to Google maps. You will confirm that your home privacy has been violated.

I'm not convinced the world is better when government and corporations can see things that the general public cannot. I'm in favor of greater transparency.

Many people overestimate the level of interest that others have in them. Could this law evolve into preventing all photos in my neighborhood? Yes, your house might be in the background. Does that violate your privacy?

Ok photograph me and my life surroundings all you want. Catch me doing whatever you think I'm doing. It will be an internet sensation for about 0.27 seconds. You soon move on to something else. I am forgotten.

I agree, I think most people are very paranoid. The fov on my P4 is wide enough to make people unrecognizable at more than 5m. I only take pics out in the forest far from people anyway. Glad I live in Norway!

Maybe, anybody who owns a lens greater than 200mm in focal length should also require a license.

Wow... so one can potentially film 6k raw at 24p for a good 6 seconds per clip, I am interested!
