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.
- 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
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
- 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.
- Get one!
