About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

Yes! A lens test is not complete until she has at least one picture. :D

Thank you for this sample. Definitely what I want to see regarding the bokeh balls, and seeing if they are sliced off (the bottom ones, here).

Yes! Awesome. Thanks for sample tests like this. Exactly what I want to see regarding the background bokeh for the lights behind.

Seriously. I was thinking the same thing: "Stop copying, and start innovating."

PKDanny: Can waiting Note 8 improve. I still own my Note 4! No in hurry.

I hope not. But I just bought a used Note 4 with a replaceable battery and microSD card. So I'll be set for a long time. :)

I'm looking to buy a Note 4 (then I found out about the Note 4 Edge). I prefer it to the 5 or 7 because I can replace the battery, and expandable with microSD.

Robdman Taylor: Too bad the 4K camera is so bad on the DJi Mavic Pro I really wanted to buy this one but DJI is aware of this and hopefully they can get a firmware update that will resolve this issue and Tech support told me that the Phantom 4 has a better and larger 4k camera so it can not be swapped out or interchanged between the two units.

Wow, this "Robdman Taylor" dude has one comment, registered 2 days after this article. Must be a shill from GoPro trying desperately to defend their product.

I agree. SO glad this person uploaded properly focused footage!

Kharan: For all those with qualms about IQ, it's worth taking a look at the DigitalRev test. The 4K footage, after grading and downsampling, is quite decent. However, it's still mushy and noisy in parts (DJI downgraded the lens or the sensor, or maybe both). But still, it's a killer product that will make drones mainstream. I really like how DJI is completely unafraid of cannibalizing the P4, banking on just selling people their stuff. The camera makers should be taking notes and following their example (especially Canon, but all the others also artificially segment their offerings).

Okay, everyone! Seems like the early bird reviewers did not know what they were doing (Casey especially). They did NOT focus the darn thing by tapping on the screen. Here, this guy did it right. The image is SHARP!

I wonder if the Mavic is "lower resolution" due to the FOV being cropped in due to post processing? The sensor size between the Phantom 4 vs. the Mavic seems to be the same, but not the FOV.

Mavic - http://www.dji.com/mavic/info
Sensor 1/2.3” (CMOS), Effective pixels:12.35 M (Total pixels:12.71M)
Lens FOV 78.8° 28 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.2
Distortion < 1.5% Focus from 0.5 m to ∞

Phantom 4 - http://www.dji.com/phantom-4/info
Sensor 1/2.3” (CMOS), Effective pixels:12.4 M
Lens FOV 94° 20 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.8, focus at ∞

The Video Recording Modes between the two differ in that it's listed as
"UHD: 4096×2160 (4K) 24 / 25p" for the P4, and
"C4K: 4096×2160 24p" for the Mavic.

I'm curious if C4K means "cropped 4K", thus it's interpolated up to 4K, thus creating that softer/not as detailed image?

Looks like DPreview fixed it to the official DJI video. :)

I think they were a bit afraid of cannibalizing the P4, as the footage in DigitalRev's test shows the P4 is a lot better.

Liki ptox said, you can't judge by Casey's down-rez. He did such a disservice to it; rather unbelievable being that he has such a huge audience. Go to the official DJI YouTube and you can see what the 4K looks like on a 4K monitor. With that being said, I still wish the 4K was better than it is. Seems kind of soft, or an uprezzed footage.

In reply to:

Hirsti: The Yi4K Action Camera has a beta firmware that is very stable (soon to be released in to production) that has 2.7K (16:9 ratio) at 25 and 50fps (PAL) and 30 and 60 fps (NTSC). This mode also allows the in camera stabilisation to be run as well as the in camera lens rectification. Also included in the beta firmware is a new in housing mode to allow all setting to be accessed from asingle button press whilst it is in a waterproof case. Flat Color profile for post processing. Manual Shutter of upto 30 secs for photo timelapse to allow for Night Shooting Timelapses. Also in beta (but not on this beta firmware) is a Live Streaming facility, currently via facebook but can be used on other services.

Thank you so much, Hirsti! Wow! You broke it down! :) I really appreciate it. Well, that kind of stinks they removed the 120 fps in NTSC from the 1080p setting.
