I can't imagine myself loading 9Kg of material into any tripod, be it travel or otherwise.
Why should I pay tripple to be able to load 13.6 Kg???

What you save from getting the next best one, pays for a 7 day trip to most photographic destinations of choice.

j3ffw: Another example of the camera manufacture’s native app lacking common sense features

Not to mention that the Pluto Trigger supports twice the amount of camera brands for half he price...

Nice... but it's the AF that will make it or break it.

It looks like the camera is held with strong magnets.
I'd bet it's harder to remove than to lose.
IMHO it looks and probably works, much better than an in screen module, if the phone still includes a conventional rear camera (even if weaker) when you just can't or don't want or feel the need to mount the attachable module.

Wait... this camera isn't out yet, but...

falconeyes: Anybody notice how light appears to travel faster than light on its way back? That's perfectly normal though ;)

It's not.
It's one of the two postulates of Relativity:
The speed of light is the same for all observers.
What they are showing is not light st all.

Saw the whole video but failed to find any example in where the system does face/body tracking.
What did I miss?

It's amazing how a change of point of view can change your whole perception about the world around you.

The last time I felt this, was during a time travel to the Past looking at this tapestry map of the Conquest of Tunes on the Seville Alcazar, where Europe is down and Africa on top, a time when Europe was fully pumped to Age of Discovery:

Iron Eagle: So will DJI relax their BS nanny-ware now that this is a reality? As it stands, I could not fly my drone near my local airport due to the software limitations.

LoneTree1: Onerous laws in the West have harmed the consumer drone industry.

Errr.... Drones have severely harmed commercial flight, airspace and human security. I guess I choose regulation and nanyware.

Akgbkd: corrected one has more elements than the distorted.. look at the left side of first image...as pointed by someone on petapixel article, these samples are fake.

I don't think they are fake.
The perspective correction just crops more of the original (which we never see) than the mesh correction.

TuanTranAnh: At 1:53, the corrected version have much more detail than the original version, where can i get that info ???? Look like reverse progress like diet food adverts. And the voice seem like machine generated not a true human voice.

There is no original version.
There is the perspective corrected on the left and the meshed corrected on the right.
The mesh corrected preserves more detail because it crops a lot less.

In reply to:

madeinlisboa: Great algorithm. It even adds detail where there wasn't. ahah! smells like photoshop content-aware

It's not probably how it works.
What is happening is that the default projection is throwing away more image, thus cropping more than the meshed correction, which reuses more of the original image.
