LOL! Wow... Is that photoshopped?

On a serious note, I wonder what's going to happen with the long tele lenses. I watched a soccer game this weekend, and the shots from the four drones were amazing! Why anybody would still use the tele's is beyond me.

Very difficult lens to use, after the first shot the subjects always end up outside of frame!

And we talk about how noisy our cameras are now, I wouldn't want to be standing next to that 'lens' when it went off.

And it requires so much light! Witness the adjacent barrel of flash powder.

I have forget to mention. It's mounted on the most stable and also ''carryble'' tripod, or quad pod, or whatever ...

yeah it's fun!

I'm guessing it's f5.6 over the whole range looking at that outersize front.

This is a sign that the Pentax FF will have an upgraded shake reduction system, to deal with the recoil.

I disagree with you. After the shot, the subject almost always end up in a frame of some kind.

And yes, the speed is about F 5.6. F=fires per hour.

I believe that's called a 'carriage.' It's a bit hard to use for panning though (as you have to turn the whole ship or field) but up and down, no problem.

Hmmm...just was wondering if that has an internal stabilization system in it. Anybody knows?

Look closely. It's just luck that someone is standing in a way that makes the cannon look like it's attached to a camera.

Because the FAA is going to ban drones. Plus, backlash will be high if everyone starts flying stuff all over the place. Really, it's incredibly dangerous to let any fly stuff around with no restriction. Someone will be killed or injured because it's inevitable that as the price becomes lower, irresponsible and careless people are going to try it out. Even with care, there can still be accidents. I don't think it's acceptable if even one bystander is injured or killed over a couple of photographs...
