IP Roundtable (EP-215)

Pre-Roll: Backblaze

Ireland was awesome.  More in the Latitude Podcast.

Topic 1: Jim – Sony RX100 v Review

  • 1” sensor
  • Image quality is truly impressive
  • 180 flipping LCD
  • No touch screen (face palm)
  • Battery is small
  • Slippery.  Needs anti slip pad.
  • Expensive
  • Exceptional in low light
  • USB charging is great!
  • Very sharp (check focal lengths)
  • Menus are sensible and easy to navigate
  • Audio quality Stinks

 

Topic 2:  Jeff – Canon W-E1 WiFi Adapter Review

  • Only works in 7DM2, 5DS, 5DS R
  • Should have been built in!
  • Have to do a firmware update to make it work
  • Ads a new option to setup menu on the camera
  • Takes SD card slot
  • Establishes a small WiFi network from the camera or join the camera to same wireless network as phone
  • Can’t use the camera while the card is active
  • No storage
  • Speed was fine
  • Thought that I had to write RAW+JPEG my first time using it, filled up the 128GB CF card at basketball game.  Allows you to download photo when shooting only RAW just fine

Midroll: Backblaze

Topic 4:  9 Reasons NOW is the time to buy a drone

  • Still image quality is “there” for the first time on a drone under $3k
    • Took as many portfolio shots as my still camera in Ireland
  • You can capture unique compositions that are otherwise impossible
    • Take locations that we’ve seen a million times and actually do something new there
  • Some locations more amenable to motion than stills, and this really gives a still image the cinematic look
  • Smaller and more portable
    • Great excuse for why they can’t green tag you
  • Vlogger’s delight
  • Safer/Lower crash risk
  • Easier to get pro looking footage now that they are so smooth
  • FAA rules
  • Affordability
    • Get one!
      • Go buy a DJI Phantom 3 Standard if that’s what you can afford.  GET ON THE DRONES WAVE!
      • Buy a Mavic if you have a little more budget
      • Buy a DJI Phantom 4 Pro Plus if you have more budget and don’t have portability issues.
