Thinner and lighter? Who cares!
This is supposed to be a professional computer and the 2015 MacBook Pro is already plenty thin and light. Removing standards I/Os for tomorrow's ports today sucks. Having HDMI out and an SD card slot was always a welcome feature of the current MBP.
The features and marketing seem more tailored to the consumer market but they sure aren't shy of sticking a professional price tag on there.
I was really hoping for a second internal SDD and more focus on performance and I/O.
Nice! Looking forward to more tactile interfaces coming out. The Palette looks promising as well.
I currently use a second hand SpacePilot PRO 3D Mouse to do a lot of my cutting and basic editing. Once you've memorized the functions, it's very quick and intuitive to us alongside a Kengsington TrackBall. Currently have 22 shortcuts assigned to it. It's nice to be able to switch it up from the standard keyboard after a few hours of editing. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=712775&gclid=Cjw...
Always good to see innovation but this not the first optical zoom option for a mass market drone or for the DJI Inspire for that matter.. The Olympus 14-42mm works great on both the DJI X5 and X5r with full FIZ control from the DJI GO APP. It will be interesting to see how they improved stabilization at 77mm to look anything close to 22mm, thats going to be pretty tough.
Me too. I assume that they are doing the same thing FreeFly did. Launch a "heavy-lift" hexacopter, wait for all the early adopters to jump on board, and than release a more capable octocopter.
A hexacopter does offer redundancy and DJI suggests that it should be able to fly with up to 3 motors out thanks to new algorithms in the A3. However, even with just one motor out, a M600 flying a RED or Alexa Mini will most likely be too heavy for a controlled recovery in the case of a malfunction, much like the FreeFly Alta 6. However, at payloads that aren't approaching the max, you should be good to go.
The problem is with the approach. You are trying to squeeze 360 degrees worth on information onto the same size sensor, leaving you with very limited resolution in any specific direction that approximates a traditional FOV. You really need multiple synchronized sensors for 360.
