DualSystemGuy: Oct 20th is the Ronin 3
Oct 27th is the Action 2
November 5 is the Mavic 3.

Very much looking forward to the M3 personally, especially for that M43 sensor.

Do we have estimates on the M3 price?

MAVIC 3 Pro…what do we guess the price is?

On article Review: DJI's Air 2S is the ultimate consumer drone (207 comments in total)

I only skimmed, but was there any mention about how the photo quality compares with a Phantom 4 Pro? As much as I would love a smaller unit, if my photo quality doesn't improve, I will wait and continue with my Phantom 4 Pro.

Indohydra: Has anyone figured out yet what kind of drone this guy used?

I read it is a cinewhoop. I am not an expert by any means, but I think this refers to a type one builds themselves. What I mean is, I think "CineWhoop" is a general category of drone.

mfinley: We used to bend a cheap piece of white cardboard at a 45-degree angle and rubber band it to our flash, then point the flash straight up. I'm selling them with the cardboard pre-bent for $80, the rubber band is buy 1 for $5 get one free, limited time offer, order now to get before Christmas

Sounds like you are describing what I use: the Demb Products (not dumb) bounce card thing.

I sure hope this is optically excellent. I really want this to replace my old Tamron 17-50 2.8. I like the Tamron, but if this is sharper all around, I would do it. I would like to get rid of having to use an adapter. It would also be nice to have autofocus.

I was wrong. Here is the other dude who adapted projector lenses to a Sony. These pictures are fantastic.

Gosh, I don't think any of the pictures shown or those in the video are anything to write home about. I am pretty sure I saw some of Mathieu's work before and I loved it, but this bunch is not special in any way.

AKH: "rapid adoption of the α9 camera amongst professional sports photographers":..hmm..????

I haven't seen a single Sony at any major sports events like tennis, football, athletics etc. Only Nikon and Canon cameras are seen at those events.

Also I hardly see any Sony cameras when travelling. Most people still use Canon and Nikons and a few other brands like Olympus, Panasonic and Fuji.

I can't speak for sports shooters, but as far as travelling, I am constantly surprised at how many Sonys I spot. I have traveled in Europe three of the past four years, and it seems like Sony is everywhere. That is just what I see, so it is obviously no scientific.

Paul B Jones: I am surprised the duplicate statute passed the originality test to even qualify for copyright protection.

Yeah, I don’t understand. How does the postal service owe anyone anything? They bought the images through Getty Images, If I give permission to for GETTY TO SELL MY IMAGE, THE PEOPLE WHO BUY IT DONT HAVE TO CONTACT ME.

I am super curious why the new Polaroid's are not included in this roundup.

It is good to have goals and to set them high, but they won't make it. I am a big Sony fan quite by accident: Circuit City was going out of business and my first digital SLR was an a200 that was a great price.

ebjerke: I just got my a7III. Adorama has a very nice return policy. I have a couple of jobs this week and I will have the opportunity to see if this is an issue for me. I have a feeling that it won't be, but surely if I do, I will be returning the a7III and waiting for them to fix it.

"Them" = Sony, of course, but then how would you make a snarky remark, right?

Akpinxit: If I may - this issue wasn't brought up during compression with D750 ...

Does the 750 have the issue?

andrewD2: We had some really good sensors with very little issues well over 10 years ago and there are plenty of problem free models now. It seems amazing to me that people will buy expensive cameras with these problems. If no one bought them we'd see a rapid redesign.

My gosh, why do you think I buy new cameras? Better sensor technology! Granted, my first camera was not anywhere near top of the line, but I shudder (pun intended) to think I still would have to deal with such crappy low-light images. Every upgrade I have made is for pretty much that reason alone.

The Davinator: It's a shame a fix is needed at all...but nice that there are knowledgable people like Hank to contribute to the Sony community. There does however seem to be a bit of reduction in the rez of the hair in that closeup though. Something to watch for

I can't even see what anyone is talking about. I am a pixel peeper, but...

DeathArrow: The winning shots are politically correct. It seems that politically correctness is more important than artistic merit. This is a sad society.

I agree with what you say about political correctness; it is the bane of our society. I don't see how these have anything to do with PC, though, but would love an explanation.

Pierre Louis: So the winner of the grand prize winner of the "Solo Portrait" is a picture in which you can't even see a 'portrait'? Riiiiiiight! Faces are so 2017! Who need's to actually see a bride's face in the picture? Not in 2018!

As a picture, it's quite nice. But as the winner in the 'portrait' category?... it only goes to show how idiotic these contests are to begin with. By the way, this comment is coming from a multi international award winning photographer (says the 'best photographer awards' I got from my mom and friends abroad).

And I won't even bother commenting on the shot of the couple laying on the street.
What a joke it's all become.

Totally agree. It could just have well have been a white bird in that rainbow picture. Ridiculous.
