jaydubbs15: Once battery life has been extended and noise reduced, I would think that drones could become very useful photographic tools, such as photographing outdoor social or sporting events. I would like my son's baseball games videoed from the outfield or homeplate. He made a catch last year in left field that might have been captured if I had a drone to do it with. Each year my high school gang get together for a football game and tailgating party. My friend's son used a drone to capture some footage of the party, and because of the large number of participants, that footage was quite nice and useful.

... also, if the drone had a follow me function, getting coverage of the family skiing down the slopes or across the water or paddling down the rapids would be quite memorable experiences to capture ....

Even if the video appeared to be from a distance, say from home plate with a distant view of the outfield, I would appreciate the coverage. My son is 8 and any running catch in the outfield is a sight to behold. Unless the drone was quite noisy, I don't think anyone would complain about a drone covering action 50 feet in the air over home plate.

On article Canon EOS 70D Review (717 comments in total)

Does water and dust resistant mean that it can be used reliably in the rain like the Olympus OMD EM1?

On article Canon ventures back in the water with the rugged D20 (48 comments in total)

It would have been nice if the waterproof feature of the camera could reach lower depths, say to at least 100 feet, to become attractive to scuba divers like me. I have a Powershot A series camera with a Canon housing that was a very good buy and negated the need for a large investment in 3rd party housing and strobe equipment albeit with a sacrifice in quality, but that model is now quite outdated. Of course, there are many serious underwater photographers that now use Canon equipment with 3rd party housings and strobes, but I would like to see a reasonably priced Canon all-in-one camera designed especially for scuba divers. I am sure Canon could design such a camera that would not cost an arm and a leg. I hope they dedicate themselves to that end of the market soon!
