alexgannis: What the point in this test just to give drones a bad name. Most drones users follow the rules and stay safe.

Unlike regular responsible users, Stare Farm wants to intentionally fly drones above highways to collect data.
You can’t Licence-out all the risks, but I think this is irresponsible.

Imagine you’re cruising on your scooter with an open face helmet and next thing you know you’re pulling Mavic Pro out of your teeth (or the other way around), just because some dumbass at State Farm forgot to charge batteries.

gonzalu: That reminds me, who licenses Deer on major roads? And have there been any video tests of impacts ... never mind.

A deer is not likely going to be flying above busy highways in daylight collecting traffic data. :P

And as usual nobody gives a flying eff about motorcyclists. As long as the insurance company leaches get their data.

WGVanDyck: Let's see, safety associations and some police departments frown on drivers flashing their lights or honking their horns at other motorists due to the potential of creating a hazardous distraction. Yet the frightening shock of a drone crashing into your windshield, in front of your face, is nothing to be concerned about.

And, it would seem to me that the resulting damage to the windshield would be affected by the angle of the windshield and the strength of the glass. Instead of the depicted glancing blow, my Jeep's almost vertical, flat windshield would be subjected to considerably more energy. Not all vehicles are created equal and the one video clip doesn't indicate any further testing. But, all that said, I'm not really concerned about State Farm drones crashing into my car. Besides, I bet they have insurance.

I was about to mention Jeep and other vehicles like G-wagen, or any delivery van. The impact would be more devastating IMO. And let’s not forget drones that fly directly at you. They should test to speeds at least 160 kph / 100 mph.

mr.izo: speaking of ive's "innovative" design
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0ebzaC7nUs

there's no deny, who's biggest inspiration in his design, but what i really mind in apple policies is that they go in such big extent, they actually suing others, that they copying their products in bs things like product ratio dimensions (remember samsung lawsuit?). how can you patent a ratio, for love of god? don't worry, it's rhetorical, we all know what kind of joke is american patent office etc.
how can they be such y hypocrite, claiming they invent al design and tech, when clearly you can actually find predecessor of other companies for almost any of their "revolutionary" product, iphone included? again, rhetoricaly..

Think of this way, if Apple did not sue Samsung, Samsung would never develop its own design language. I personally value originality in industrial design.

BackToNature1: The best assumption is that most Mirrorless sales are (APS-C)Cameras. So that would be leading in sales but not necessarily in profits. In spite of what some are being told, the Sony (APS-C)camera Lineup is outdated. So it would not take much to leapfrog their entire (APS-C)camera Lineup. Especially if Sony chooses to only focus mostly on FF.

The popularity of Alpha APSC cameras may lead to upgrades to Alpha full frame camera. If Sony keeps producing compact FF cameras at reasonable prices they’ll be in a good position. Brand loyalty seems to be a thing in camera world. I think that Sony should upgrade their APSC models and A7 now more than ever.

It is quite remarkable that bike messengers still look the same. Same fashion ... maybe a bit more tattoos now. It’s Toronto that has changed. The bike repair shop is now a coffee shop and Cloud Gardens, where bike messengers used to indulge in cannabis, has been built up with an office building. Back in the 90’s they used to terrorize drivers and pick a fight with taxis. Now they have bike lanes. So people hate them much less. I guess by golden age they mean the time when bike messengers were the most dangerous thing on the road. Now we hate the bike lanes that no one is using 6 months of the year considering the winter temperatures ... but I digress.

Every time Leica release something... I go straight to the DPR comment section. Pure comedy.

There are lots of pros for Fuji, but the lenses, battery life, low light IQ ... there’s a strong case for the Sony. I’d wait for A7iv though.

I am appalled at all the bloody Marxist comments in here. Leica is expensive because they produce a niche high-quality product using expensive western labour.
Secondly, if you are a professional photographer and you are complaining that you are poor ... well you made your choice. There plenty of talented architects out there that spent ton of money on education and are making minimum wage and work overtime. Yet they enjoy their work. Or you can become an accountant, work for a corporation in an immensely boring politically-correct environment where you better watch out what you say ... but you can afford Leica for that occasional shutter therapy. Choices, choices ...
Thirdly, there’s nothing noble about being a professional photographer. Most are simply taking wedding or conference pictures. Most photos are derivative whether professional or hobbyist takes them. Originality and talr is rare.

Although a Sony fan, Canon R5 made me have a second look at the company. Let’s see what Sony will respond with.

armandino: Are we sure the voting was constitutional? Something definitely to ask in 2020

Well you actually have to show up and ID yourself to vote on DPR, not some mail in silliness causing double voting and delayed counting. This way you don’t end up with a mysterious upsurge of votes after deadline for camera no one is buying just because people love to hate R5.

I wish they’d put that 40Mp sensor from the latest M camera in SL2 body.

Great article. Very inspirational. I will check out catadioptric lenses myself.

This is a cool gadget. Personally I’m waiting for a programmable interface. Secondly, this remote control functionality should be build into all new cameras.

Camera Conspiracies: Lighter than Sony. Too bad nothing will be in focus.

@Camera Conspiracies You think in terms of video or fast action tracking! For stills, Lumix S as well as Leica SL have very accurate autofocus. (Presumably Sigma FP as well.)
