Youtube: 10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman.

Excellent use of hidden video to illuminate a problem men only theoretically understand. Face it - we men would be in someone’s face after the third catcall, or filing harrassment suits. Walking through your office and having someone say “Oh, you got an ass on you” or “Shake it, baby” on a regular basis would probably break your composure quite effectively.

Later: Apparently this video is attracting rape threats. What’s happened to America, and ‘our’ internet?

TechDirt: Have Drone Will Travel — Slow-Moving Regulators Force Innovation Overseas.

In response to slow-moving U.S. domestic policy on commercial drone use, innovators are moving abroad, to jurisdictions where regulations have been updated to delineate when drones may be used in the commercial context.

ReadWrite: Shooting Your Neighbor’s Drone May Be Illegal—And It May Not.

There’s also the Salvo 12 Shotgun Silencer, which advertises itself with a mascot named Johnny Dronehunter, a tough looking guy who shoots down six DJI Phantoms in one go in the name of defending privacy.

I told you so. Engage in amateur or ignorant behavior (flying over property sans permission), and this is going to happen eventually. The term ‘drone’ has made folks completely paranoid.

FAA: FAA Exemptions for Commercial UAS Movie and TV Production.

In their applications, the firms said the operators will hold private pilot certificates, keep the UAS within line of sight at all times and restrict flights to the ‘sterile area’ on the set.” This sort of indicates how the agency is going to deal with drones. Operators need to have a knowledge of airspace, weather and more.  Just because it looks and costs the same as a toy, doesn’t mean that operation in public airspace is without dangers.

EOSHD: Nikon D750 Review - initial thoughts and video footage.

... I really miss my stabilised Canon lenses. The problem is for Canon lens owners like myself, aside from the very expensive 1D C, Canon are down across the range of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras for performance. They are now a distant 4th on video quality behind Sony, Panasonic and Nikon and a mediocre 3rd behind Sony and Nikon when it comes to stills quality on their APS-C and full frame sensors.”  Damn.

EOSHD: Nikon D810 video quality leapfrogs Canon 5D Mark III.

The D810 now shoots better quality 1080p out of the box than the 5D Mark III. It isn’t 4K or raw but it’s good. In fact Nikon are now providing better image quality than Canon across the range in video mode. Beginning with the D3300 and D5300 which provide a better APS-C image than the 7D Mark II with less moire, Nikon have taken the same improvement to image quality and applied it to the D800’s successor, the D810.”  Ouch, Canon.
