Bowlomatic: This makes me want to cancel my not -yet- received Lily camera.
Although the Lily will be waterproof, and is pretty nice, its lack of obstical avoidance. and altitude / distance from base is minimal...this has a lot going for it.

lily will just follow you for 15 mins and then disappear after battery flat

forget about lily, it has too much unproven bullsheet.

But this is nothing new, isn't it

It isn't. But if it's HD then it is.

Lassoni: There've been many androids that do everything except 10.5 . Hardware wise androids have been top notch in cameras (ois + 4k has been around for ages with androids now). It could come down to software, but I'm not entirely sure you could argue one software is better than the other, just different. And if anything, android should be more "open" while apple is more "closed" eco?

I am seriously sick and tired of Android whiners.

Marksphoto: so what, I remember canon announced something something with the new sensor technology more than a year ago, I don't see them implementing the new technologies in their new DSLR's... Talk is cheap.

you think they are developing lego bricks? you just don't see the hard work behind, that's all.

Beta D5 Review. According to Ole J. Liodden, who tested the D5 in very rough, extreme conditions, his D4s died, but not the D5....so weather sealing seems to be also improved, for these professional guys, you know....think national geographic or someone like him, who really needs to get the shot, into whatever harsh climate conditions.

The salt water may have entered the camera in a different manner. Even the best DSLR are not waterproof, just splash proof. That's why there are no IP rating.

AEY: Body so big but 4k so tiny 3 min per clip. Why??

Seriously who takes a single continuous long shot in their production? Besides you need a very powerful PC to edit 4K.

Can the videos be rotated like Richo Theta?

Franka T.L.: Would be a great platform for time lapse, it seems, can leave it in the open with continuous running capture say a shot every 5 minutes

A drone can only last 25 mins, whats the point?

DrBucky: Where did he mount the theta s 360 to?

I don't get it. If it is on the lanparte why can't we see it?
Lanparte also seems only to fit cell phone size devices?

Check this https://youtu.be/3uaqxTUkVWI

he mount it on a gimbal

In reply to:

winkalman: Hopefully 4K video will push this into the "acceptable" quality range and force a 4K Theta from Ricoh sooner rather than later. Depending on price and weight, I could see this being a pretty attractive option for the action cam niche that wants spherical 360º video.

Thetha is 1080p, just that it shows up badly in youtube.

In reply to:

wetsleet: Does this thing capture a full sphere, or just 360 degrees like the name implies?

i suppose full sphere, same 2 lenses construction like Ricoh.

Rooru S: Sony A99 LCD tilting-rotating screen is better. Why make something so complicated just to make it different?

why are you asking a stupid question?

In reply to:

forpetessake: Sony is responsible for a lot of technical advances. But even the latest and greatest (and quite expensive) cameras still can't produce good skin colors. On the other hand, Sony still struggles to produce good quality lenses, even the Zeiss badge doesn't help. Until they fix those issues they'll do better as a sensor supplier to the other companies.

Seriously, if you guys are using this category of camera equipment and don't get good images, you are to be blamed for the sub standard photography skills.

RichRMA: Some of these Kickstarter efforts give me the creeps. They haven't even got the money to make a prototype? You don't need $50,000 injection molds to make a prototype. Which basement is this coming out of?

yep. with 3d printers around these days, it could be even cheaper.
