I lost a DJI Phantom 4 in a typhoon, ambitious client request, so I got it replaced. Anyway, I couldn't fly it back, but the drone was still on for a good 5-10 mins after the battery reached 0%, which shows that DJI has put some effort into battery autonomy to avoid these sort of user errors. This makes me think that it's very unlikely for a DJI drone to just randomly fall from the sky, not impossible as technology is not perfect and any particular drone could have a particular glitch. I am pretty sure that in at least 90% of cases, if a drone drops it's the user's fault. Luckily, in my case it fell in the middle of the sea, so no one could have been harmed.

Actually last time was an Alexa vs Iphone... but I just don't understand who keeps making these videos...
You don't graduate to Arri or Alexa, you work with one, the other or both. I am a Red owner and will work with Alexa any time. And you paid 65k for a Red One, that's cute.
You can see there's a real know-how behind the pro stills compared to the amateur ones. Yes some of the amateur can look good, but it is simple point and shoot (oh this looks good: photo). The pro knows what he's looking for and how to achieve it. Could be the pros loose that genuine "oh this looks good" overtime, yes, it could be, but change it for something else.
I guess this is the kind of posts that made NFS go from #1 to not even top 5 in my reading list... What's the next one? "This is camera, this you make video".
I agree with you here, this is crap. I feel that in the last few months about 50% of articles in this site are written by V Renee who clearly doesn't have much idea about filmmaking. This is the conclusion I come to after seeing the sort of crap she keeps posting. A couple of days ago was the "using the fist as a lightmeter" malarkey, it just keeps getting better!
