Sometimes I use Jpeg produced by Sigma dp Quattro cameras, that is indeed a good solution to not become crazy with the Sigma proprietary RAW converter.

Moreover, as rightly said by brownie314, jpeg colors obtained by cameras are disappointing.
However I always have set RAW + Jpeg and edit RAW in Lightroom, always.
I do so by decades, with Samsung files and with of all the other well known brands existent, including DJI (apart Leica and a new chinese brand, I don't have).

I bought three NX1, two NX500, all the fixed and zoom professional lenses (two 16-50) and two low cost zoom.
I absolutely do not regret having bought all this equipment, I bought it just when it was starting to be probable and then it was obvious that Samsung had come out of the camera market.
All I have are still as new, amazing for many aspects but the unbearable defect, I repeat once again, already said this years ago, is that the NX1 creates micro blurred images due to the vibration of the shutter blades, particularly with 50-150 mm, when T is between 1/125 and 1 s, (sometimes at 1/160) and well visible also with 16-50 mm, above 30 mm focal lenght.
This does not happen with the NX500.

Depends if it is waterproof, probably isn't.

I did not say that Phantoms are the best example of an aerodynamic drone aircraft.
Obviously they aren't.
An airplane is, and it needs to be, given the much higher speed, all obvious things.
But your phrase is bad written, unclear, has a different meaning for me, it puts the Phantom line as less aerodynamic than the other DJI's, which of course is not true at all, if nothing else for the curved closed body of Phantoms, with a tiny landing legs, with curved, aerodynamic profile as well.

Viking2: I have had a few phantoms.

i also have a Spark and a Mavic. And inspire 1.

The Spark is fun. But it will loose video connection almost the time.
Sometimes just like 50 meter. And yes I am using the RC.

I am waiting for Mavic 2. Hope that they come out with better camera.
I also want the panorama as in spark.

The Spark is a bit of toy. Fun to start and go out thru your window.
For me the phantom and inspire is not portable enough.

Thats why I am looking forward to Mavic 2.

You need to remember that DJI support is chinesee style. (That means terrible)
That means that their products are great if they work.
But boy are you going to be disappointed if the gear don't work or are dead on arrival.

Wish GoPro could come up close to DJI as we need healthy competition and I demand European or American style support.

"But it will loose video connection almost the time."?!
Almost time?

Phantom's a bit noT-aerodynamic?
They are the more aerodynamic of all the DJI drones!

Photato: Seems to be a rebadged Phantom3 Pro.

And also probably with a wall, a smarter protective defense against modification of restrictions by hackers!
This is just my guess

lukecookphoto: The Mavic made me lose interest in this line, excited to see what the future holds for that.

The camera of Mavic Pro is soft only if is defective.
A good unit, well calibrated out of factory, is crisp on almost all the entire frame, excluding only some millimeters on the 4 extreme corners.
Ask for a replacement if your unit is soft.

Michael Ma: Waiting for a DJI Mavic Pro 2. Needs a better camera. The colors look weird. I think the colors on the spark looks great though. Just put the Spark colors on the Mavic. 4K with spark colors would be nice.

Again with this Maverick out of place?!
What does the Maverick have to do here, Franzick?

falconeyes: The Spec sheet does not list CE range, only FCC (4 km). Does it mean, RC transmission isn't throttled in the EU?

Of course, as always!

Jacob the Photographer: So , please tell me .... what is New in this ???
The 'custom made' Gimbal in the photos is made by ReallyRightStuff.com
The 'custom developed' Software is made by Kolor.com
The Skylines have seen many Giga panorama Photographers before.
Agreed you guys deliver Quality , but do not B.S. me that you are unique.

25 years of activity, in slightly more difficult, uncomfortable locations, but he has not time to chat anymore ...
... I think.

The lightning applied to that panorama is totally unrealistic!
It's a net stretch like a drawing with the pen. It must have a gradual bright halo, a glow with varying intensity and varying amplitude, greater or lesser at some points depending on the energy released, this is totally missing and is pretty ridiculous, anti-scientific result.

Ouf!
Not good at all, too many random color spots and fake color details everywhere. The red wire spool is rendered as an undetailed red splashed only!
Absurd, this one on the red, is probably the worst I have seen so far, among all the recent cameras in the last years to now, Bayer and not Bayer.

On article The DJI Spark is a $500 HD mini drone (96 comments in total)
In reply to:

JackM: Cute and nice price, but less compact than a folded Mavic. Gimbal looks robust though, if only 2-axis. Not like Mavic's floppy gimbal which requires the fussy clip removal/installation ritual.

For months I have never put the DJI clip, having had no problems.
Recently I began to use it, but is not indispensable, in my opinion, if you have a little bit of care with your Mavic when you carry with you and you place in a dedicated mini box.
However there are also other easier practical solutions, also quicker to install, made by some chinese producers, 3D printer and not.

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (506 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?
