On article DJI publishes film shot entirely with Inspire 2 drone (53 comments in total)

Leonp: Really impressive to fly a drone that steady inside a moving car...

That was a joke, the footage really is impressive. 4K/60p is about what perfect video/film should be. Now youtube, computers and monitors only have to be able to cope with it without jumping frames and compressing the **** out of it.

It's actually 5.2K video source!

naturetech: Drone Photography Review

This one has an m4/3 sensor and takes m4/3 lenses so it makes at least a little sense to include it here.

Vegetable Police: I was thinking, are they really flying that drone inside the car? That could get ugly lol. Amazing quality footage though. They cheated by hand holding the drone, I thought all footage was going to be flying stuff ;) What, actors don't like blades spinning really fast near their eyes or something?

I don't think they cheated at all. It's showing that it can be a full solution for any kind of shot.

gehairing: Image frame is always moving (i mean unstable). Or is it my eyes ?

In the first scene I saw that too. Not in the rest of the film, though.

PPierre: Very close to the latest APS-C sensors. In Raw, I'd say there's less than a 1 stop advantage for the APS-C (D500, A6300, XT-2), but that's quite marginal (even though Fuji has the most "aesthetic" noise pattern, I find). It looks at least as good as what you get from an A6000, for instance. I'm quite impressed, since the latest APS-C sensors are also almost on par with aging FF sensors like that of the A7. I guess it means everyone can take good pics with his system, regardless of whether it is FF or not. Great from Olympus, and great for those who are invested in m43 and believe in its smaller size. Quite an expensive body, which will not be a converter IMO, but it looks like a pretty nice upgrade if you're heavily invested in m43.

No it is not close with latest APS-C and certainly not with FF. No it is not a nice upgrade if you were after image quality.

Yes it is a nice upgrade for performance features.

Al Valentino: I just switched to Olympus with the EM1 mark i, partly due to the incredible package deal of the mark i camera and 12-40 f/2.8 for only $1,299. $700 USD less than the mark ii body only. I don't care about 4k video or a few extra pixels or fast action shooting. Anyway, seeing the IQ differences are slim, I am happy I went with the mark i instead so I can put the price difference into lenses.

Even if you care about 4k, the G85 is half the price.

You have to really, really need that extra fps and tracking improvement.

PedroMZ: compared to the Mk I ,colours slightly cooler/more neutral and at least one stop better resolution and noise. Quite an improvement considering the pixels are more densely packed.

More like 1/10 stops.

Uh, no.

Why can't we get snapseed in a browser or on the desktop?

Neez: Is it fully USB 3.0 Powered??

Some of the more power hungry ones can require a dual USB plug to allow it to draw more power, but any 2.5" HDD would be USB powered.

tkbslc: I get a bit weary of these "largest ever" or "fastest ever" or "most megapixels ever" claims. It's pretty obvious that each year or two as technology advances that the new gear will be "the best ever". Claiming to have the "best ever" every single year, is a little much.

Something a bit less dramatic would be a lot better. Maybe, "Seagate increases portable drive capacity to 5TB".

I don't argue with that. But my point is that every single year since the invention of the hard drive there is a "World's largest" released every 6-12 months. It is not really news, is it? It would be news if they couldn't figure out how to do it anymore.

It's a silly complaint,though, I know.

Lorne C.: If I can live without an EVF, tilting screen & wifi, and don't care about video, autofocus performance or continuous frame rate, is there any point getting the Mk2, 3, etc?

I've had a MK1 for 2-3 years which developed a few minor but annoying problems recently - hopefully I can claim on my travel insurance. All I care about is image quality in raw format. Should I save my money and get another MK1?

it is actually 1.6 stops from f2.8 to f4.9 if we want to get specific. I rounded that up to "almost 2". Definitely a lot more than 1 though.

Thomas Woob: There are dual drive solutions that are bus powered. Especially Thunderbolt drives... should be possible to have 10TB or 8TB SSD without power supply. At a cost ofc.

Or you could run 2 of these and split your data. Hard to imagine very many people having a single file larger than 5TB!

Osa25: Interesting but spinning disks are not the most rugged and that's a huge amount of data. You'd want to back up to at least two of these to be using them in a mobile context.

spinning disks are extremely rugged when they aren't actively reading or writing. Carry it anywhere you want to go, just don't knock it off the table while it is writing.

10 hours is just overnight. That's very fast to write 5TB of data for personal use. And what's the alternative? An array of SSD hooked up via thunderbolt? That would surely be portable and cost effective, right?

I enjoyed this sample gallery a lot more than I thought I would. I think the variety of possibilities makes it an interesting lens that could be a lot of fun to use.

Not that I could afford it anyway, but I personally find it hideous. I strongly prefer black or silver (or even gold)

justmeMN: The one million Yen must come from their medical division. Their money losing camera-imaging division couldn't afford it. :-)

It's only $9,000 US. I'm sure their global marketing team has that in the budget!
