    I’d just like to know how HyperSmooth works with a longer focal non fish eye focal length, if you have the hero 7 black.

    I was considering putting it in a plane without gimbal without another lens.

    Hey guys, does anyone know if any modern cameras support direct wireless transfer of images to a windows PC?

    We have been using eye-fi cards at work but they don't make them anymore and they don't work that well with windows 10 (not with our corporate soe anyway).

    If no camera support it are there any other attachments available for cameras?

    It needs to be a direct transfer, there wont be a wireless network available.

    We have used quite a few cameras, all of them wifi enabled, none of them support direct file transfer to PC. Some have a PC app but require a router to connect too.

    We haven't looked at whats available for a few years as the Eye-fi cards have been working OK.

    I cant see any obvious info on any of the Lumix product pages. Can you give me more info on how the Panasonic cameras do it? Is that using the Lumix Tether app, or the PhotoFunStudio?

    Most cameras appear to focus more on transfer to mobile devices now days.

    I thought Nikon SnapBridge allowed direct transfer; never tried though...

    Yeah I found that but it doesn't mention the mechanics behind how files are actually transferred, just that a connection is possible. Does one of the Panasonic apps pull the photos down from the camera? Can you set the camera to automatically push photos to a particular folder?

    It has to be automatic and user friendly as the users are not photographers and many are barely computer literate.

    I'll look into these, thanks.

    EDIT: Looks like these only support higher end cameras. I think the budget for new cameras is about $500

    So after smashing my filter a while ago, finally had the time to visit a local camera repair store to see if they could remove the remaining fine glass particles from the front element.

    Being told 'it is normal' and 'don't worry it has a coating' was not the ideal outcome :(

    I'm pretty sure that tiny smashed glass pieces are not normal...

    The only thing it will affect is resale value.

    While a little soon, if anybody hears of a charity art auction raising money to help people get back on their feet after these bushfires, I'd appreciate a heads-up. :)
