So the "state of the art" in films now is "Can I shoot a scene with an artificial shark's vagina in it?"
Used to be that even porn films had to have a plot and some semblance of a story line.
Well... we know who's political ox was gored now.
Not a terribly new concept. I have a five image filter I bought back in the mid 70's.
I quickly discovered it can give interesting images, depending on the lens, but can give you really crappy results if you are like a kid with a hammer and see everything as a nail...
I heard a couple of people discussing this announcement in a camera store today.
Apparently for $199 more they will include an adapter to fit their FD and FL lenses to the camera.
A few thoughts. I have a drone that weighs about 3 pounds. I don't know about anyone else, but I personally wouldn't want that thing dropping onto my head from 5 feet, say nothing of 400, 200, 100, or even 50 feet. My physics is rusty, but according to a web site I found after dropping 50 feet that 3 pounds feels more like 396 pounds when it hits you.
It would only take one lawsuit from someone getting hit and hurt to pretty much destroy the whole business opportunity for everyone.
The next thing to consider is "this is the first company to create such a product." Is it patentable? Perhaps, but the odds are someone else will create an alternative product at a much cheaper price very soon. I suspect something in the several hundred dollar range, or less, within a year.
Last thing to consider. If I spend $2,000 on a drone and I'm working a gigs that are going to earn me $500 it doesn't take a lot of gigs to make the price pay off, even at
$500. Obviously, if it costs me $5K, that makes the value of my service that much higher, or at the very least, the frequency I can use the device much more often. All depends on how I want to price myself.
"Can you use a gun to pierce your nose?" ... that could only have been written by a "Gender Studies" major.
