On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (366 comments in total)
In reply to:

I own 128 cameras: How can people claim to own the A9 or use to own the A9, when it's months from being released. I once was on a list that got me Nikon's 7-8 days early, and once a deal with SONY where I had the camera 30 days only, not a production model, not production menus. But there is no way, world wide, 30 people have had this camera. Anyone who even saw it at a trade show have signed an NDA, which means they can't even say the owned or own it.

Frustrating.

At today I have, for some days in my hands, at home, more than one unit of A9 ... I mean some pictures representing the Sony A9, can I say to have some units of Sony A9 as beta observer?

zodiacfml: no value. what is the difference inserting the card to a laptop versus this one. DJI is cashing in with their popularity. They recently announced the DJI goggles which appears to me is simply smartphone VR.

Oooh my God! :-) .... how much short-sighted you are!?

urix Lukin: 10 years ago I had Transcend external drive with built-in SD card reader and battery and buttons for transferring photos from card to HDD.
That was useful.

There is/was also the HYPERDRIVE COLORSPACE, and other similar devices ...

In reply to:

ron french: Just think, at the end of a days shoot you have to put 16 lens caps on!

Better to put on the caps after each session ... and may be the cups are automatic sliding covers or ... probably is 1 large cup only, to cover all the lens!
Just another think.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (899 comments in total)

In my opinion the peacock feather is much better represented and visible by Fuji.

Congratulations to DPReview, a big step forward, this ugly test card is now a little less ugly and less dull.
This is evolution ...

In reply to:

Robert Zanatta: Can't wait to work on a 250 megapixel RAW file in Lightroom.

But you will be obliged to wait much longer, with Canon.
In 2005 or 2006, Canon stated that it was already able to produce cameras with 100 Mpixels sensors ...

GinoSVK: Nice to see 4 milon ISO, especially when my camera is unusable over 2000.

Not true, those cameras are usable with great success as a strong casual coloured noise machines, it is not a trivial matter, very usefull for many applications.
Come on, be happy!

Playright: Was anyone else confused by the "Canon made pixels bigger to catch more light" and "Canon made pixels smaller to catch more resolution"?

Never seen before!
Only Canon can make this miracle, the pixels multiplication in a CMOS image sensor.

In reply to:

Biological_Viewfinder: I hate all of these except that very last one which looks more natural like it could have been taken from a higher hill.

The rest seem like weird abstracts; bad photographs showing a rare view because we do not fly does not make them good photographs. They're just angles we normally do not see, but they're still bad pictures.

I arrived there by myself, thanks for this Biological obviousness, but the brightest parts in this picture, the sun, albeit veiled, and the branches of trees covered with snow and maybe ice, are near the middle gray, gray-yellowish, so all is too much under-exposed and the closure of the shadows is excessive, too net, without intermediate shades, gradations.

The very last one more natural ?!
Have you perhaps forgotten to add the "un" in front of natural?
This is near to an ugly HDR.
Dark snow?
WOW!
And where?
Is that snow of water on the Earth, or it's another substance crystallized on another planet?

Doberman: Are these really great images??? Besides the POV, what really makes them so great?

Was thinking the same thing.
Particulary the last two pictures, great to be ... heavy and gloomy, near to an ugly HDR style.
Only nice, certainly not incredible, are the 1, 2, 5.
Seem that Allison likes big, capturing titles or have not a good point of reference.

JP001: In the first shot the drone flies in from the opposite site. If that's where it's coming from, the operator activated 'return to home' with the space needle in between the drone and the pilot. If true, that explains why it's flying straight into the space needle. The drone just did what the operator told it to do: fly back to it's home position in a straight line. You can't blame DJI for pilot stupidity. The way the pilot adjust the camera tilt doesn't look like he's very experienced either. So, if you're not to confident as a pilot, you have no business flying at that altitude, above a city or around people. Let alone all three of them. People like that give drone's a bad rep and are the course of all the strict legislation.

Is clear to see one of the 4 landing feet of the Inspire 1: T 2:41 ... 2:46

On article 2016 Roundup: Best Camera Drones Under $1500 (97 comments in total)
In reply to:

Najinsky: Thanks for the very useful roundup. I've been toying with the idea as they are often on promotion here in Thailand but I never got around to building a feature comparison to know if the promotions are a good deal or just clearance of older generations with older features.

One negative comment for the roundup is the lack of consistency in highlighting important specs, for example, unless I still missed it after reading it twice, I don't see any specs for the range of the DJI Phantom 4 models.

Around mountains, far from cities, I have reached more than 6 km, with perfect video signal, so it is possible to go more far.
However I stopped there about 2 or 3 minutes for my photographic mission, to take many pictures (as on a sky tripod). Then during the RTH, I was forced to land about 1km from the Home Point (the take off point), due to the low level battery, it was impossible to do the landing at the take off point.
After the landing the remaining power was down to 5% or less and it was 100% at the take off moment.

Audronis,
where did you get the 13 km info about the Mavic Pro?!
This is false.
DJI info writes 7 km and the maximum distance limit settable in its app (DJI GO 4) is 8000 m, with these data, the 13 km is obviously wrong.

miric: Gold bayonet? O really? What a silly idea.

The body has little or nothing of the real gold color (in this picture) and obviously cannot be gold-plated, it would cost at least 10 times more.

Maverick_: Had to stop after less than a min. Most annoying to see NY mothers act like their pre school play dates. Google, this is a fail. I like the comment below in giving it to real kids and not 40 year olds forcebly acting like one.
Things to keep in mind, Sony makes the camera for the latest iPhone. HTC makes the Pixel phone, but not sure who makes the camera for it. The video stabilizer seems to work well though.

I have had the courage and I watched the entire video, more than 2 minutes long, but I had the same feeling of discomfort, one of two women in particular with all the continuous hyper-ultra childish expressions, rather pathetic.

However, it should be up soon Inspire 2 Pro ...

"about 10 minutes longer than the DJI Inspire 1" ?

If the 29.5 minutes are real (in optimal condition of course), I could say is about a quarter of hour more than Inspire 1 with TB48 battery, probably the worst aspect of this DJI wonderful drone.
And what about the max altitude from take-off of PowerEye?
Is it already known?
