straylightrun: Worst focal length ever.

@zdman i said 65mm, not 97.5mm.

Wow. Bunch of whiners. Almost as bad as photographers who think they should be able to photograph anything, anywhere.

JMTS: How hard would it be to just shoot down the drone?

straylightrun: Why do scientists always waste their resources on the most obvious tests? Annoying noises are annoying. Thanks for that. Whats next? Frowning makes you mad? Reckless driving is dangerous? Eating fatty foods make you fat?

PhotoKhan: The system might able to do the "bullet time effect" but that is not demonstrated in the video.

The only thing demonstrated is the ability to remote trigger release 7 cameras in sequence.

It takes a lot more to produce the required effect (more cameras, specific timings).

The original video, on YouTube, is 8 months old and features just 4 comments, all of them unanswered by the "company".

I am noticing a recent trend on DPR to publicize every single project that is thrown your way, without checking their credibility, with special incidence on crowdfunded proposals.

Make dpreview great again.

F/4-6.3 zoom lens? Crazy. Why are there still no f/2.8 (35mm equiv) lenses for m43 yet?

Sdaniella: there is a war of theoretics going on in galactic/stellar/planetary sciences, and cosmic origins

the "consensus (status quo) science" relies heavily in "big bang theoretics" where gravitational force (the weakest of all forces) as the major driving force in explaining what is formed in our universe

versus

exploratory "electric universe" science where observations openly point to new theoretics covering plasmically visible electromagnetic forces (extremely powerful, active, destructive forces) as major forces in explaining most features of galaxies, stars, nebulas, quasars, planets, comets, asteroids, and planetary phenomena (surface features, activities, and atmospheric activities) far better than gravitational-based "consensus" theoretics

most of the spiral storm structures on the gassy giant planets, and even the sun, are seen as evidence of ongoing massively sized intense electromagnetic "birkland current" driven storms that easily reach into interplanetary space (moon orbits)

straylightrun: They offered to take the photo down. They did nothing wrong. The photographee is just ranting on and on about seeing salty, and the fact that he posted about it to make an even bigger deal is cringeworthy.

It seems like alot of people on dpreview are old dinosaurs and not familiar with social media. Have you guys been living under a rock for the past decade?

yahoo2u: APSC sensor...fine.
Body only $2695 AUS...No.
There are plenty of APSC cameras on the market with same MP for way less with lenses attached and still way cheaper.
.....and here's the secret...they all have the ability to take nice images.

Have you never heard of Leica before?

kwa_photo: It's a work of art that also happens to be a competent camera for the right person. Why the bashing? If Leica can sell enough to justify it's production, great! It's not for me, but neither are a lot of cameras out there.

Marty4650: So..... for $2,000 you can get something from Leica that isn't as good as an $800 Samsung NX500. But.... it does have a nice fit and finish and a nice red dot.

Wait, you guys actually believe a $4500 camera can't afford to include USB 3.0? I bet you think Sony is passing on the savings to you as well, huh?

J Parker: Several years ago, business guru Tom Peters wrote that there was going to come a time when those who were laughing at the inexpensive goods coming from 'other' countries wouldn't be laughing much longer.... He went on to state that these goods (lenses in this case) would eventually rival their mainstream counterparts in quality -- at a ridiculous fraction of the price. When DVD players cost $1,000, the company Apex introduced a $99 dollar DVD player that was built like a tank and outperformed the major brands. This phenomenon occurring in the photography world would not be a very far reach. Just an observation.

Um, yeah, not even close at all. None of these lenses have AF. When they include AF and the same size, then maybe they might have a real chance.

"They've never been about cutting-edge tech"

Ironic how this has a USB-C port. Meanwhile Sony, one of the biggest tech giants and innovators still has USB 2.0 on their $4500 flagship mirrorless LOL

Samuel C: But Canon should have 4K on every camera they make. Despite the fact that DPAF and and other newer sensor tech is still in its first few generations of Canon sensors. I'm not sure people realize how difficult it is to shoot 4K video for typical lengths of time without a heat crash....well, some people do because they have to wear gloves when shooting 4K with their cameras. And that is with sensor tech several or more generations old and thus benefiting from incremental increases in efficiency. Nope, all sensors are the same and should be able to shoot 8K the same day as any other camera hits the market with that spec. Otherwise it's intentional crippling.
I hope my sarcasm was easy to spot.
That was totally unnecessary...but still, I felt like taking the opportunity to point out the obvious.

^ lol no. This isn't 2005 anymore. Cameras today can take photos and videos.
