Didn't think it even had any collision avoidance ?
It was crashed into some large industrial pallet racking and not a wall, I'm presuming the collision detection wont work through open racking with items on the shelves.
Seen some videos of this thing and it’s a bit big to carry around and a bit of a gimmick if you ask me. It was featured on last weeks gadget show where they said it wasn’t very stable and the female presenter crashed it,but i dont think that was anything to do with it being unstable and more to do with the fact she didn’t know how to fly one very well. I think i will stick to my Mavic Air that has far more features such as front/rear/bottom obstacle avoidance and all in a much smaller form factor. That said this seems a good price if it is what you really want.
Knew I had seen this design before... ;)
You missed out the part where an SLR can't even do video autofocusing properly. At least an iPhone can do that. This Canon can't. You need a special lens which you have to buy separately for this canon to do silent video autofocusing and I'm not even sure buying that lens is enough for this canon to accomplish that task properly. The bulk is also a major problem. Go for mirrorless instead. Same quality but less bulk and can do video autofocus properly.
I did think the question a troll comment too, there's not much trust to be had on the internet nowadays, that said it's actually not a bad question as it gives a chance to explain what SLR is all about, especially to those who enjoy photography on their phone and want to step it up. As well as those things mentioned, like sensor size differences, another massive difference is the ability to change lens. It's not uncommon to buy a lens which costs more than the camera itself; put a bad lens on an awesome camera, you'll get a bad photo. That piece of glass is vital, the camera is fed by light so it's only as good as the thing that catches the light for it. With an SLR you can buy a lens that is perfectly designed for a certain function, be it landscape shots, portrait, or macro close up shots. Not something an iPhone could ever offer. Control. SLRs are designed around control of the light that enters the camera, it's through this control that people are able to take amazing night photos of the stars, or those beautiful portrait shots. Shutter speed, aperture and ISO are the three main players, they all alter how light behaves when it enters the camera and hits that sensor. Those who buy an SLR and leave it in Auto have really bought the wrong kit. Don't get me wrong, they'll still see an improvement in the quality of the photo, but not enough to justify the cost and switch, in my opinion, a real waste of a great tool. You must put a little effort in to learn how to use said tool, that dial with A, S, M etc. on it is there for a reason. Snobbery. If you're a good photographer, an IPhone X and other cam phones like it, can still take a great picture. Composition, timing and other factors can still result in some cracking shots that will stand the test of time, some SLR snobs might argue otherwise. However, the exact same shot in the hands of someone who knows how to use an SLR will look that much more awesome. Combine the large sensor, with the changeable lens and the control you get on SLRs, you should start to see what's different about them and an iPhone X.
Purchased one. Box wasn't factory sealed. Looked a decent basic camera for the price.
I wasn’t trying to compare them, just commenting on others who were. I have a mix of mainly STM and USM lenses for my Canon, never had an issue with lens noise when refocusing but I know the standard lenses have this issues from people I work with. The STM nifty fifty can’t be heard on mine when I do video and that’s the nearest equivalent spec of the Sony which is twice the price.
They are not really equivalent as the Sony kit lenses on their mirrorless cameras are silent during autofocusing. This is especially important for video. These cheap Canon lenses probably aren't silent in use so are useless for video autofocus. How much more do you have to pay for silent autofocus lenses on the Canon? I'm not sure this canon can even do decent video autofocusing even with the more expensive silent lenses attached.
As @heatt mentioned above, keep an eye on amazon.it, during my research last month I found them the cheapest across the european amazon websites. The black A8 had been down to €32x: https://it.camelcamelcamel.com/Samsung-Smartphone-espandibili-Versione-Italiana/product/B078KSJ7XV
Too late smart arse (lol) (lol)
I just had to copy and paste the link. I was going to put it in my first comment but I didn't want to be called 'smart arse' (lol)
Have you been searching for that for the last hour?
Smart arse. (lol)
These are awesome I have these installed...:)
Not sure why this has gone cold as it’s a brilliant price - heat OP

Yes. You can also leave them on powered if you prefer.
Yes, but that is the problem if you want wire-free CCTV. Just mount them properly and securely in a hard to reach location.
Maybe so but if you have already been using a D3xxx for long enough there wont be much more you can do with a D5300. It's more a step sideways than upwards. I have 153 focus points on my D500 but i rarely use all of them. If you know how to use 11 properly on a D3200 then it matters not how many more you have.
I would say that this owns the 3200/3300/3400 from any angle. If you put them side by side you gonna start seeing the differences. Starting with the focus points 11 vs 39 to the accessories that the 5300 is compatible with or the built in functions.
Mate 10 pro has optical zoom. I dont care about optical zoom though and never felt the need of it for personal use. What matter for me is the end result of taking pictures in auto mode in few seconds . i never even bother to use the pro or manual setting of mobile camera Mobile photography improved a lot in the last few years and smartphone cameras can now offer studio effects, shallow depth of field, augmented reality, good dynamic range,4k, slow motion, portrait, low light performance, editing RAW images, sharing instantly etc Multiple small cameras in mobile with the right hardware and software optimization can compete with DSLRs. I have seen many videos on youtube where they compared mate 10 pro , pixel 2 , S9 , note 8 with DSLR camera and most photos of these mobile camera were more appealing to me than bulky DSLR See not much significant difference in quality even s8 is few year old https://www.techradar.com/news/google-pixel-2-camera-versus-dslr https://www.techradar.com/news/smartphones-vs-cameras-do-you-still-need-a-dslr
managed to reserve one this afternoon, hope they'll honour the discount when I pick it up tomorrow ;)
I would love to see a phone camera that can come close to a DSLR with a couple of lenses. Do any phones even have optical zoom on yet? Even compacts will walk all over e phone camera, depending on the compact of course, but, as an example, a G7x will be streets ahead of any phone.
Good soft for removing wide angle effect?
Decent price. Being waterproof and shockproof with the need for a case is a massive bonus. Especially if you want to get audio from your video
very tempted. Its not a Gopro 5 but then again it's 40% cheaper than a GP5.... Decisions decisions.....
Is this no good?
£719 at CCL’s own website https://m.cclonline.com/product/244302/CP-PT-000499/Drones/DJI-Mavic-Pro-Quadcopter-Drone-with-4K-Camera/DRN0001/
This is cheaper at CCL's own web site.
I've heard back as follows from John Lewis reagrding the offer on their site: "I can confirm that this is not a dual sim phone. The phone pictured on Amazon has slightly different specifications and a higher price."
I chose the P Smart over this. The all glass body left me worried it would shatter to bits. 10yrs ago it would defy anyone's belief that all glass bodies would be the material of choice for phones.
Don't think the John Lewis version (John Lewis site Here) (posted as deal Here) is dual SIM (?) but it does come with a two year warranty. ADDED: I've emailed John Lewis to check..

With the rolling contract option it basically is outright with a little extra hassle.
Is that a notification LED I see in the product image? That would make it a purchase if so.
thanks jazzuk777 I would of course prefer buy the thing outright, looks like CPW has an exclusive on this phone for now though so cant see it getting cheaper anytime soon.
It's not guaranteed of course as cash back never is and there can be a little hassle cancelling (surprisingly I had more hassle when I did it with O² than with Vodafone) but essentially, yes.
So take out a monthly contract (any offered by CW) - pay £229, get £50 cashback from quidco and cancel the monthly to keep the phone for £179?
I have three B1W's and also agree. Received my 3rd one yesterday from Aliexpress exactly 7 days after ordering it with full tracking and final delivery by Royal mail https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Blueskysea-Car-WIFI-DVR-B1W-mini-Dash-Camera-Rotatable-Lens-NT-GM8135S-high-HD-1080P-Dashcam/32836034734.html I would not waste my money on this inferior 720p Motorola camera.
Two cameras mentioned above in the comments Mobius and Blueskysea B1W are excellent cameras that I actually own. They are so stealthy you really need to look very carefully to see them from the outside of the car if you position them properly. I have them fitted in our three family cars both front and rear facing and they are superb. You can also buy a super capacitor for the mobius for around £6 (the B1w already has one fitted) so reliability in hot weather is much better than battery powered cameras.
The discreet yi dashcam has been available on aliexpress for a couple of months but not sure when it's available on Amazon! Have to wait until it's available for sale on Amazon as I don't fancy aliexpress.
Maybe better to wait till it's on Amazon. Don't fancy trying to get anything resolved through aliexpress.
Don't know if I'd go for this over the 70Mai for the extra 5 quid or so...?
That's great thanks i have ordered the new global xiaomi redmi note 5 from the same store just got order dispatched email so hopefully no customs fingers crossed thanks again for info
This store: https://xiaomionline.aliexpress.com/store/2178148 Standard shipping. I think they put mp4 player, $24.
The clincher for me is Mi A1 has USB C!
A hard one I've got the note 4 and the 4000ma battery is a significant advantage on the note 4 but the pure android is the advantage on the mi A1 the note 4 has miui ROM. Someone who had the note 4 on here got an A1 then went back to note 4 sighting battery issues. I think it's perceptual though if you get the A1 as you've never experienced a big battery it's not an issue. The a1 battery is classed as standard like most phones.
That's good to hear. What seller on aliexpress did you buy it off and what shipping method did you use and if you don't mind what value did they put on custom declaration any info much apreciated
Cheers, will edit the title.
Toshiba U3 is £14.99 at Base
Code VC5 takes it down to £15.16
Yeah this didn't work at all on the one I had.
How's the cloud storage been? Does it store much footage or?
Apparently just set your region as China and it works fine.
Thanks for your reply, I received the Camera today and is ideal for my needs and is very good picture quality when viewing from the phone.
I had no issues with mine with either the Wi-Fi or servers, just make sure you select the Chinese server.
No I'm a micro four thirds man - but I can imagine that once the A7III reaches saturation and starts getting into more peoples hands, the A6500 will come down another couple of hundred in price (body wise). We shall see. But that A7III does look absolutely boss
Expecting the a6700 by chance? I thought the same last December and five months later...CP+ and NAB pass and nothing in this domain. I was waiting for that or the RX100 VI for so long that I gave up and went FF with the A7iii. Maybe APS-C really is dead ;) Judging by Sony's past pricing when a new model appears, any a6700 will come in higher at £1,500 or so leaving them making minor, if any, drops on the £1,249 usual a6500 price. Anyway, if you need it now it is what it is. And JL/Currys have followed Amazon so there's an extra year warranty with JL: https://www.johnlewis.com/sony-a6500-compact-system-camera-4k-ultra-hd-25mp-oled-viewfinder-wi-fi-nfc-3-lcd-touchscreen-body-only/p3080473?s_afcid=af_24658&tmad=c&awc=1203_1524748215_ebcf51d0602eea7232ff992e7759b8d8&tmcampid=48
I wouldn't pay this much for the A6500 - hang on if you can. It'll come down that little bit further soon!!
i was thinking head stuck up somewhere...
You mean head in the clouds level? (angel)
Na, it's a VW Tiguan
I don't think Yi really want people to know they fit a battery in these cameras but I eventually confirmed they don't use capacitors just batteries, I actually found this info on Amazon USA confirming a tiny LiPo battery and not a capacitor in the specifications. https://www.amazon.com/YI-Compact-Dashboard-G-Sensor-Recording/dp/B01CW4BEP6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1524729763&sr=8-3&keywords=yi+compact+dash+cam Also confirmed in Q&A Question: Does this have a battery or a capacitor? Answer: The device has a Rechargeable Li-Polymer battery. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions. … see more By YI Technology SELLER on December 15, 2017
Both on the Amazon spec or Yi own website doesnt state a battery but if there is it must be tiny. But it does for the grey model and price difference. Also amazon reviews also show a a discharge within 10-15secs so common on these
If it does indeed have a capacitor instead of a battery it's a well kept secret, all the camera manufacturers that use capacitors make a big deal of the fact in their advertising because it's very desirable, I think maybe you just have a crap battery in yours but also you do know the camera is supposed to shut down a few seconds after the 'power being pulled' ?? battery or capacitor powered,
Not a BMW is it, by any chance? Stupidest thing they did was move the outside sensors round the sides, just so they could have perpendicular Park Assist. Anyway, off-topic. Sorry.
Good camera, very light and portable. I've been using it for a year now and it's great. The autofocus is excellent which makes taking pictures and shooting video very enjoyable.
Seems ok! Think I paid this from Amazon UK including canon cashback. Nice camera but hate the interface which is like a cross between a DSLR and a powershot. Great besides that and nice and compact.
Specs advertised ok for price
If it's anything like their phones or tablets I'd steer well clear, they were terrible!
Is this any good?1 review on Amazon not very good.
About the same quality? Can't see why this has gone cold then really. Maybe it's the retailer but then again other deals from them get hot.
Definitely compared to the Yi 1080p cameras, cant seem to trump this for the value.
Why is this cold??
How do these compare to the yi cameras? Is the picture any better?
You're conveniently forgetting that your statement was "and they are all chinese, with no uk support, and no doubt are not the easiest to use, or the clearest of images. for that price. Also, this has GPS, i bet those ones dont." You've offered absolutely nothing to back up your claims.
Oh ok, ill prove my point in the same way you disproved my point No UK support? Right. Not the easiest to use? Right Or the clearest of images? Right GPS? Not a Pointless add on. There you go. As it only takes you to say wrong to disprove a point, surely me stating right is as good as your point?
In the event of an accident, police and insurers have far more reliable methods of determining speed at time of an incident, and believe it or not, dash cam footage will give a pretty good record as to your route, speed and driving behaviour far more clearly than any GPS data. As to "You are clearly ill informed about everything you mentioned", you need to do some research. Or you could try and disprove what I've said rather than making a silly comment.
GPS is useful for measuring your speed and showing a route, both useful if you need evidence of an incident for the police/insurance, etc. You are clearly ill informed about everything you mentioned.
I'd be surprised if Nextbase didn't contain components or were even manufactured in the Far East, just like most phones, TVs laptops etc etc etc . No UK support? Wrong. Covered by Amazon and also manufacturer In many cases. Not the easiest to use? Wrong Or the clearest of images? Wrong GPS? Pointless add on. What do you need GPS for on a dash cam?
They're around £59 from geekbuying at the moment (Germany warehouse), my first 2 came from there within about 4 days.
Shame, missed it...
