One look at the specs, you’ll go cross-eyed. Lack of lens options, however.

WSJ: Drone Flights Face FAA Hit.

The Verge: Adobe’s got Photoshop running in Chrome.

Yeah, but don’t get all excited: “The application is downloaded via the Chrome Web Store, and when you open it up you’re actually connecting to a server which is running the desktop version of Photoshop CC 2014. The UI of the desktop version is captured as a video and sent to your browser, where javascript relays your actions back to the server, completing the interactive loop.” Better have a fast hookup; delays in UI get up my nose.

the interpreter: ISIS beheadings are a grotesque media strategy

None of these actions are designed to dissuade Western military intervention in Iraq or Syria, or even to goad the West into becoming decisively committed on the ground, because ISIS understands this is unlikely to occur. Rather, it has a much more short-term aim: to get ISIS’s military and political setbacks out of the media cycle and replace them with bloody imagery that demonstrates ISIS is still a force.” It is very unsettling to see social media and personal branding strategies used for these purposes.

EOSHD: Apple kill third party SSD support in Yosemite.

The problem is down to Apple having introduced a new ‘security feature’ in Yosemite. Only kext drivers for official Apple SSDs are supported. Built in drives that Apple themselves use in your Macbook Pro Retina and some iMacs will upgrade just fine to Yosemite but if you have installed a third party SSD or more commonly are running off an external one, you’re out of luck.”  Beware, beware.

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?

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.
