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.)

Holy moley, Wenmei. That is quite the find. Whoa.

nwcs: Pretty cool concept but I imagine the costs are such that it will only be used when it’s a potentially high value photo and not for just any random one.

Don't imagine. Do the research. :)
I'll come back once you find out. ;)

John Koch: The Skydio appears to have vastly superior obstacle avoidance, compared to competing products. However, a "This is what happens if you unleash the Skydio R1 in a forest..." YT video posted by Dutchman "NeverMindYourOwn" shows at 17:00 that it can be baffled by dense vegetation and not return to phone / home. Dense forest also frustrates use of the front-view, orbit, or side-view modes. It does lose its subject several times too. One wonders if it would perform as well in dim light or if the location has lots of interfering signals. Almost miraculous, yes, but $2,500 is still a lot to put at risk.

I do believe it may be because the R1 needs at least one meter to each side of the drone to proceed. You see "Not enough space to proceed safely" on his phone.

Thanks for bringing up that particular video, too! I hadn't seen that one, and I've been watching videos on this drone, yesterday, all day. :D Haha. It seems like that that particular ride through the forest (into the sun) causes a lot of pulsating lens flares on the camera. Since it's a visual-based system for navigation, that's probably not helping.

I'll have to watch the rest of that video closely (gotta run to work now), but if anyone is curious, this is the link:
https://youtu.be/QWTzxk87zHw

And, yes, $2,500 is steep. But I think, for me, it may be worth it (even though I was saving up for a a7S III). Ugh! Still debating. Anyhow, for anyone interested in this drone, watch all the other reviews on it, not just this gentleman's. He seems to be having a few problems with tracking.

That's really all I was trying to illustrate: "Yes I realize that. Obviously this applies to all companies."

Sony keeps big companies Nikon and Canon from becoming monopolies in the market. Without Sony, you were strong-armed into getting whatever Nikon or Canon decided to make, and sticking with their DSLR iterations (and milking us for it), and never innovating. But, with Sony around (innovating with MILC and increasing in market share) you should be happy they are forcing Nikon and Canon not to rest on their laurels. AS mentioned above, Sony keep Nikon and Canon on their toes, and vice-versa. Competition is good because in the end, us consumers usually benefit.

I got excited until "4K UHD video, albeit at a why-did-they-bother 15 fps". <le sigh>

For sure! The sharpness is undeniable. And the flexibility in cropping if needed when you didn't get it right the first time.

sceneIt: I hate to say it but I’ll never buy a Sony for the simple fact that their users are the most annoying people on the internet.

I've never annoyed you.
Tell me how I can. ;)

snapa: How many serious pro photogs us a laptop to PP photos or play serious games? Nice laptop, but not a professional computer for serious photogs to do professional work.

Sir/snapa,

Remember, the world is a really big place filled with many people with different ideas and needs.

NJOceanView: "Comments, settings, messages and other non-image information is packed in the JavaScript Object Notation (json) format...." What a passive-aggressive move by IG/FB! Why not present it in a manner anyone can read easily -- *.txt or even *.pdf or even *.doc/docx. We here at DPR are more technical than most, but what about someone who has been posting for years directly off their phone who doesn't understand or even know what JavaScript Object Notation format is? Why make it ANY harder to get this information than it has to be? Sigh.

I'm using a free program called "Brackets".
EDIT: But, actually, you can just open it with a simple text editor like Notepad.

I appreciate all the comments, etc. But I was expecting all the pictures in one folder not separated by dates. :D But, eh. It's free. Haha
