Think, if you can mount Komodo on a bigger racing quad and do super high speed proximity flying along mountain ridges - this will be the next level of FPV Cinema. Global Shutter would definitely help in this regard.
    Actually, GoPros only use EIS, so if there's any internal gyros on the Komodo, a similar "hypersmooth" stabilisation effect can be accomplished in post with Komodo footage by leveraging the data same as with it's bigger siblings.
    Better yet, you can dial in the exact amount of stabilisation for more granular control.

    For the specific category (cities, near airports), or BLOS (beyond line of sight) additional requirements has to be met. Advanced theoretical test with practical exam. And your drone must fulfil "certain" CE standard. For the moment, this is not clear yet.

    And YES, even if you want to fly DJI Mavic Mini, you have to register and pass a theoretical exam.
    There are no exeptions, unless you want to take the risk and do something illegal.

    So a lot of things will change soon.
    Done that!
    Passed the theoretical and waiting for the practical exam for all kinds of drones up to and including C4 (<25kg)
    Drone must be insured too!
    The Mavic Mini falls in the < C0 category but since it has a built-in camera it gets a bit more complicated... probably needs a license only for professional use, TBA...
    Anyway, let's discuss the EU drone regulations in some other thread, lest we add more confusion to this super long but ever so addictive thread about the baby Dragon!

    I'm curious what the Komodo's direct compatibility with Dragonframe will be. This could be an ideal head to use for stop motion and motion control setups. Many DSLRs work with Dragonfrome over a basic USB cable. So far DSMC2 cams need to feed in through an SDI module going to a converter box. This means losing the Dragonframe's in-app camera controls, which makes using an old Canon 5D an easier choice. But Komodo?

    Yeah that would be great! We use dragon frame often for commercial work and it would be great to have matching codec.

    Not sure if it is relevant in this context but many Canon lenses have optical IS including the very compact 35mm RF lens that seems to be perfect for gimbal use and probably for large drone use as well. It weighs just 10 oz so with Komodo and probably only one battery needed it is likely to be less than 3 pounds total on a drone. If Komodo has a robust wifi transmitter you might not need anything more on the camera/drone setup.

    Also I wouldn't be surprised if they come out with an RF version of a "pancake" lens like the current EF 40 millimeter pancake that only weighs about 4.5 ounces. Not sure if there are technical issues with the much shorter flange distance but offhand I don't think there is. A quick google suggests that ideal pancake focal length is around the flange distance so likely 18 or 20mm, which would be an excellent addition to the RF 35mm for gimbal or drone work.

    How's Komodo sensor size regarding Speed Boosting full frame EF lenses? All the EF-Leitax Leica R, Contax Zeiss, Canon FD.

    There is an EF - RF Speed Booster Ultra available, wondering if Metabones decides to give it the 'cine-treatment'.

    Hi! You should definitely spend 4-5 days readings previous posts! Or simply check out Phil Holland posts about that mater.

    Enjoy

    Anyone know what the crop factor would be using an EF full frame lens on Komodo? What would a 35mm full frame EF lens be on Komodo RF through an RF to EF adapter?

    Komodo's crop factor is around 1.3. An EF to RF adapter doesn't have any effect on crop factor...it's 1.3 whether you'd use a native RF lens or EF lens via adapter. Crop factor is determined only by sensor size, not the lens or adapter, so it's 1.3 no matter what lens/adapter combination you use (unless you're talking about using a Speed Booster).

    I think you're getting mixed up with your terminology there. You might already know what I'm about to say, but it's the internet and misinformation runs rampant here so allow me to be a little pedantic.

    Remember, the crop factor comes with the comparison to different formats, not different lenses designed for different formats. The way you've worded it seems to imply that the crop factor is inherent to the lens itself, which is why you described the lens as a "Full Frame lens." You also added extra details like EF mount and RF to EF adapter -- these things don't change the focal length.

    A 35mm is a 35mm is a 35mm. It doesn't matter what mount it has or what format coverage it is designed for. So if you're asking if this 35mm lens that was designed for FF coverage, when mounted onto a Komodo, will see a different frame than a Super 35-designed 35mm on Komodo, the answer is no.

    But if you're talking about the difference between a 35mm when viewed on a FF format camera versus a 35mm on a Komodo, then Phil's got your answer right here:
