    I hear it draws a fine portrait with the 17 ;-)

    Does it have OIS?
  3. Write times are impressive.

    The early prototypes of the 5-Axis stabiliser used elastics instead of electromagnets.

    Performance questyions

    First, what about a grip? Isn't that too slippery and straight a surface?

    Second, it doesn't look like it has any buttons. How does one change its performance?

    My wife brought back a similar utensil from a trip a couple of years ago. I think what it may have come with something that couldn't go through airport security or customs.

    I especially liked how well it works on a camera strap! :big grin:

    Very cool Nic! I'd recommend a wrist strap rather than a full neck strap. Or maybe a sling so you're less likely to hurt your neck!

    I'm embarrassed to say I only got the pun a full day after originally seeing this thread. I was just like, "hah, that's funny, he has a pen in a neck strap".

    Nice, but I heard the ergonomics suck without the optional rubber grip and the "click" action is less decisive than many desire it to be! Care to address these complaints? ;)
