stevo23: Apple is the master of stealing IP and getting away with it. But they've lost a few battles too. This may be one of the losing battles.

@stevo23 stop deceiving yourself. Sure you know what Samsung and Huawei stole and got away.

my point is everyone is stealing from each other. So don't just label Apple as the only robber. It just make you less intelligent than you really are.

pro photo 2011: Expensive to buy. Costly and difficult to repair. Why would you want to spend $1000 on it? Any cell phone will lose value over time much quicker than other 3C devices.

Spend the same money on a Leica or Zeiss glass and it can retain its value much better.

I just use a $200 5.5-inch Xiaomi phone and it is more than sufficient. I won't feel as bad if I drop it or it gets broken somehow.

if you are so happy with your $200 xiaomi, you won't be whining here. Just like going around telling why how expensive Ferrari is when you can get a 2nd hand china made car fr fractions of cost.

sharkcookie: Sony, who invented it, doesn't even support it in their own cameras. It's overpriced. Might as well drop it. Just stupid that Nikon is using it in their D850.

good format, good perfromance and future proof is not the only criteria a product will continue to exist. If no one else use it, its may not make sense for manufacturing. Many camera manufacturer did not support it simply because there is no need to.

I am not sure the relevance of such as card when MicroSD rules in price, performance and size. The XQD demand is so low that manufacturing may not be sensible anymore.

It doesn't matter to rich Nikon fanboys.

esmoxd: Interesting exercise, as a Sony shooter I was looking for the most neutral setting, some of the images were a bit under-exposed for my taste, so I chose the best balance in other colors other than purely skin tones in those cases. I tended to give the warmish over-saturated ones which I assumed were Canon a second place and then gave the third place to the the least color correct. Surprise, surprise
Sony 8, 3, 1
Canon 2, 2, 8
Nikon 2, 7, 3
I was correct about Sony but it seems that Nikon at least with out of camera jpeg is more saturated than Canon.

Mine is the same as yours.

Mine is A9, Canon, Nikon. Which I am surprise. because I always though Nikon produce the best Images.

Dheorl: Designing good drones from a flight characteristic POV is actually fairly simple. The behavior of prop-size, span, arrangement, motor size, weight distribution, battery size etc are all very well understood. Designing good drones that are cheap is the challenge.

With the drones coming out now it's the software as much as the hardware which is the challenge.

does other drones has HD FPV technology?

KaiZenDon: Consumer advice: just use the $1200 to buy the DJI Mavic. It's not like DJI is a stagnant company, they are very innovative, I am 100% sure a startup won't have the technological prowess over DJI.

If this product finally comes to market, and does as advertised (extremely doubtful for both, given the fail rate of kickstarter drones), it won't cost $1200, it simply can't compete at this price point.

BTW, gopro extra.

probably this will be another dead lily.

fyngyrz: The WiFi on the 6D was useless to me because it wouldn't transfer RAW images, only JPEG, which I never use. So my question is: Will the 6DmkII transfer RAW images over WiFi?

Also related, assuming it does transfer RAW, does the WiFi offer a proper web sever now, so you can just drag images to your computer, or is it still dependent on the Canon intermediate program hack?

fyngyrz, don't look at the numbers, common sense alone tells you if wireless is faster then cables, then cables would have been phase out already.
