In Topic: Drone Footage, totally not dive related but has water...

24 August 2015 - 09:14 AM

I have found at about 18mins in I get the 30% battery life warning.  Given I am typically flying it over water, taking off and landing from small boats I start to bring it in then.  You could probably go 25mins and be ok, depending on how far out you are flying it.

 

Moses I think they are going to get cheaper and better with time.  We have not had a "big", meaning bad, event with one yet but it will happen.  Then the legislation will start in earnest.  Are they any more dangerous than your fellow skiers, bikers, paragliders, skydivers???  With these other hobbies if there is an accident it is typically with other people who are "accepting" the same risks or accidents that just involve the participant.  How many times a day does someone on a bike ram into a pedestrian??  But since it is not sensational no reporting.  The problem here is a drone hitting a school bus, getting sucked up by a jet...Of course I am responsible with flying mine;) it is the other guy and those "other guy" ranks are growing.

Mike you know that was me! I was trying to back up to get another shot of the group as I was waiting for the RX100 to recycle, damn point and shoots.   We found them to be super sedate, a little curious but never threating.  You can see the spot where one comes up behind me and I kick it.  It just continued on, no big deal.  


In Topic: Best Tablet, Light Weight device for travel?

Final Update:  In the end I bought a "used" MB Air 11" for half the price of the new MB.  It works great with Photoshop, I would assume the new MB is as good or even better.  Was lazy and used Apple's "Recycle" program to get a store credit for my old 15" MB.   


In Topic: Would be an interesting lens...15mm f4 Macro Lens.

This and a 15mm and I would be happy just about anywhere.  Would make for an interesting trip portfolio.
