trebledee: Not touching another PD product. I was sucked unto buying a Messenger bag. It can't even stand up on its own. It rolls forwards in an attempt to spill the contents, every single time.
The movable geometric dividers are a joke and you can't fit more than a compact in it.
Adjust the strap to anything but default position and the immovable shoulder pad is off centre, causing the bag to continuously slide on your shoulder.
It's ok as a posing laptop bag when I'm wearing my 3/4 length trousers, riding my fixie to the latest cool coffee shop. That's about it.
Their design department needs to look at function too, it's bag design, not rocket science.

@blurredvision. The practical way way to put it to one side, use it just as laptop bag and use proper camera bags from ThinkTankPhoto for work instead.

@Peter Yes I did, no reply.
I'm not being paid to be any more helpful. I gave them money, the product isn't as I expected.

Good luck to them innovating, they're not getting my hard earned money anymore though.

trebledee: How bloody superb is this!

Anyone want to buy a Mavic Pro?

No 4k or Manual is really not an issue to me, for what I use it for. Even the DNG files are pretty useless on the Mavic Pro.

I use it for the odd top-shot for social media work, HD video is more than adequate too.
If I want proper full on stuff, I hire someone with a proper drone and license to do it for me.
This sails under the regs, which is worth gold. Until they move the regs to 230gm of course ;)

Looks alright to me. Looking forward to having a play.
Dunno why people are getting their knickers in a twist about it, it it what it is. Entry level camera using the same mount as the Z6/7. Don't like, don't buy.

It does my eyes in, really. White on black is terrible to read.

Dealt with, yup. Your Caps lock button got jammed? or you're just a wound up type of person in general? ;)

Tried it yesterday at a Nikon event yesterday. HEAVY beast. Could only use it on their body, not ours. Apparently the only pre-production piece in this part of Europe at the moment.

I've given up buying printers. Had 2 Epson Large formats. You leave them a week and you get a clogged nozzle head. Leave them any longer and you're soaking the head to dissolve the clog, dare go on holiday and leave them a bit longer and you're looking at a new print head. Which costs 3/4 the price of a new printer.

Then the ink, a grand to fill it and the continuous flashing icon on any given cartridge to say that's about to run out, always the one you don't have handy as a spare.

Then the waste ink tank, WASTE ink, They build them to waste it so you are caught in their net of buying ink carts and wasting more ink cleaning the head than printing.

Nope, My last A2 printer is sitting there dormant, awaiting disposal (for which I have to pay for as it's technically chemical waste over here)

I'll get all my printing done at a printer from now on, they have the newest and bestest kit and the things run all day, preventing waste.

It's better than my Nikon 85 1.4 damnit.
I shot with it last week for an assignment for Nikon.

My poor wallet!

Starting to think they are one and the same company. This bunch and the Profoto crowd.
They're just having a laugh with everyone.

nandbytes: so they made announcement for an announcement :-D
Is there any point in this?

But the lens looks awesome though.

It's so people can get a pre-order made on their pre-order.
