I'll make one request of you, manufacturers. Please make the controls large enough for big American paws! And don't rely on having fingernails. When you shoot outdoors, those get savaged. I dislike having to use keys to get my camera to work.
This looks like it would be pretty boss for location and camping shoots. Not to carry, but to have in the vehicle for recharging duty. At $500, I'll have to compare to other options, but really ... wow.
A vector of risk I hadn't thought of. Given our drought status, drones and forests may end up being a deadly mix. I'd recommend operators have buckets, shovels, and a 5 gallon container of water available, but likely not even that would be enough given how tinder-dry we are. A ban might be in order over BLM and National Forest land. You'll piss off the social media 'influencers', but who cares? It's the landscape we must live in and with.
Nice, but remember ... large variation in manufacturing. Buy from a place you can do returns. And buy the USB dock for local adjustments - you'll need it (speaking from experience with 50 1.4 and 24-105 Arts).
Great, but remember you have to manually focus these things. At F1.2, that's not a minor consideration. Modern DSLRs don't have the special microprism finder screens you saw in film cameras. You'll likely need to use the LCD screen on the back of the camera, and turn on 'zebras' if you can ...
Noise, people. Noise. You don't want this future.
Also, a landscape strewn with plastic and carbon fiber pointy bits. When these things fail, they do so spectacularly, sending sharp objects vectoring out at high speed.
Each key depressed immediately becomes a permanent imprint on paper. Mistakes are not easily removed, generating a greater need for concentration and requiring an undistracted, direct connection with the hardware responsible for producing a document. Driven by the force of the creator’s own fingers, and coupled with the unique characteristics of the machine being used, every document produced has its own personality and charm.
Oh, well phrased. Bravo.
An indictment filed Wednesday in federal court in Ohio may answer some of those questions. It alleges Fruitfly was the creation of an Ohio man who used it for more than 13 years to steal millions of images from infected computers as he took detailed notes of what he observed.
Missed this the other day. 13 years? What is similar to this, that is out there right now? Makes you really thoughtful, this one. We on Mac still don't believe we need security software? Hmmph. What does everyone think of Bitdefender?
I've told the story in the past of my encounter with a mail robot at Upjohn Headquarters in Kalamazoo. I saw it rolling, thought it had gotten away from someone (the fact the carpeted floor was level should have tipped me off). I ran and tackled it, trying to stop it from rolling ... every secretary and administrative assistant came out to start hitting me with folders, binders ...
My only excuse is, I'd never seen one in my life before. So I'm a yokel. What else is new? No damage done, thankfully.
