  • The first thing I noticed about those images (as rendered on my screen, at least) was the ugly blotchy skin tones. I then read the article with a grain of salt. Good click bait.

  • They're mostly not captioned, though. Where was it made? What species is it? Captioning is the backbone of stock. The search can't be text based, just category based, and is very weak on specifics,...

  • Some impressions, after stickybeaking the Unsplash site:
    The collection is highly curated. Someone has put a lot of effort into the editing, collating etc. Some people charge money to edit your...

  • Interesting that replies are few - I think it's because no one knows the answer any more!! In general, editorial stock is marginally worth the time taken to sort, edit, caption and upload the ...
  • Fine images: I don't see any evidence of the horizontal blurred banding that I get in stills from my Dobby (attached - the roof corrugations make it obvious, but it can be seen in all areas of the ...
  • And if anyone has a GX850, could they please sit it next to their Phantom drone and see if it affects the compass? Many thanks!
  • Okay, I set up the aircraft (Phantom 3 4k sans camera) ready to fly - compass calibrated normally, showing ready to go GPS. Then I introduced a number of camera bodies close to it, switched off ...
  • Hi John, and thank you for your thoughtful and informative reply. I think we still have a mystery, though. To answer your many questions: " Quite a payload! Heavier than many drones. No gimbal ...
  • Hi Dronies, I've just tried to fly my Lumix GX85 camera unsuccessfully - it scrambled the drone's compass. "Intensive electromagnetic interference", as the DJI Go app put it. At first I thought it ...
  • Happy to report back that setting standard photo style NR to -5, sharpening to -1 and turning iResolution off has resulted in less artefacts in my jpegs. Images still look plenty sharp enough, and ...
  • Okay Albert, here’s the jpeg tweaked the same as the raw file, as close as I could get colour and exposure. The camera jpeg is on the right this time, with the raw conversion on the left. The ...
  • I relate to D3xmeister's answer, but I'm also still hopeful someone has stumbled on a magic jpeg setting for the GX85. I find myself with two cameras in my hand - the GX85j and the GX85r - and they ...
  • Then we got nostalgic for the rangefinder look, so we put the electronic viewfinder on the left rather than in a hump on the top. But that’s the only commonality with a rangefinder camera – the...

  • I find it a stretch to compare a GX85 to a rangefinder camera. I use a GX85 – great little video camera and good for stills in bright light stopped down – but a different experience. Rangefinders...

  • Lawney, I might have given the wrong impression. Working for not-for-profits as I do means not throwing money at a problem, but being savvy. Going pro is about your commitment to the customer, the...

  • Commented on article Sony NEX-7 In-Depth Review

    with SLRs, and the Nex-7, now chipped and cracked with 62,000 shots on the clock and still working, is my carry-around snapshot camera. It served me well enough, a camera with terrific raw image...

  • Commented on article Sony NEX-7 In-Depth Review

    I bought a Nex-7 for pro work when it was first introduced, open minded about it replacing my Nikon SLRs. On the first assignment I discovered that the ergonomics were nowhere near as efficient as...

  • The other reason is a change in needs. If you’re lucky enough to be paid to shoot the same thing for years, use the same gear. But then someone wants 4k video, so you buy a 4k camera, then someone...

  • Why has 4k been embraced so enthusiastically, when it presents a lot of logistical headaches?
    Apart from the whole upgrade mentality of having to have the latest and best, I have a theory that it's...

  • Good idea about the back-up devices - now that you mention it I had one way back, but it was dodgy and cost me images, so I've never revisited that option. I should give them another chance. It's ...
