  1. Article: '20 Things About Love Most People Learn Too Late In Life'

    I've been thinking a lot about relationships recently. For various reasons. I think we need to be mature about them, and that needs to be said more often than you think these days. We need to get our...

    It is very tiring to hear the misconception that longer lenses have more 'compression'. No matter how many tests you do, and no matter what proofs you have, some people will insist on the myths. It...

    Good points there, Christopher. It's also worth pointing out that some cameras have an anti-dust feature.

    I assume that there is no risk of getting dust on the sensor?

    Nobody complains about Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck!


    Well, you're right on all points. But the fact is that you can create an artificial face, a likeness which does not exist. That's the...
  7. How digital face replacement could mean the end of the movie star as we know it

    Thanks to modern software, particularly face replacement, you can put any likeness, real or fictional, onto any actor. This is usually used as a toy on social media. But, it has much more potential,...
  8. I don't like the skewing, but I really like the...

    I don't like the skewing, but I really like the way it handles exposure, given that it's a small sensor. Very impressive. I mean, there is no work to do on this footage. None. In the future, people...

    True. But nobody cares. It has had zero impact on culture. Unlike Titanic, which is a big part of the public consciousness, and is the basis for many a meme. Of course it helps that every other...

    Even with the teething problems, if you can call them 'problems', I suspect that the Komodo is going to be the best selling digital cinema camera to date. That doesn't include hybrid cameras like the...
  11. Sony is apparently working on Fresnel lenses

  12. LiDAR - coming soon to a camera near you?

    From what I have seen so far, and that's not much, it seems that LiDAR is the supplement technology that cameras have been waiting for. There's only so much you can do with 'machine learning' when it...

    I kind of know how you feel - sort of. When you see what the future will bring, more or less, the people who took part in the previous revolution (digital photography) think that nothing will change...

    The video image doesn't quite have the fidelity of a larger sensor, but it's impressive to get this level of performance from such a small camera. I mean, it's not like we're expecting Monstro...
  15. Panasonic 'Komodo' - a 4" square Micro 4/3 compact 4K cinema camera

    The BGH1:

  16. That's true. Moving the sensor is not changing...

    That's true. Moving the sensor is not changing perspective (i.e. moving the optical axis to a new point). You could argue that using OIS + IBIS can produce a stereo image, though. Although I wouldn't...

    The Wave has two notable features: E mount by default (no electronic contacts though); and Red compatible interchangeable mounts. I'd say they made very good choices.
  18. I would be surprised if anyone cared. I like...

    I would be surprised if anyone cared. I like James Cameron a lot but... honestly, Avatar was weak sauce. And with all the VFX, why have human actors in the first place? Go CGI all the way, if you...
  19. Sony A7sIII objective testing - pretty impressive, especially at ISO 16,000

    https://www.cined.com/sony-a7s-iii-lab-test-does-it-live-up-to-the-hype/

    A few quotes:






    In comparison, the S1H has 12.7 stops and the Alexa has 14. I don't think that CineD has tested...
  20. For Panasonic & Leica users: Irix VV lenses now available for L mount

    https://leicarumors.com/2020/10/05/irix-cine-lenses-now-available-for-leica-l-mount.aspx/#more-68676

    They are made in Japan and South Korea. They are also weather sealed. And quite frankly they...

    I love ideas, and for most people, an idea is better than nothing. I suspect that this is more than just an idea, but still far away from a prototype. Still, I am really curious to see how quickly...

    The Komodo, remember, is a 'crash' camera. Although customers aren't going to use it like that. ;-)

    I think this Canon actually competes with Sony's A7sIII, and in that case it has some advantages...

    I am surprised that it took so long to see something like this. I like the idea, for sure.

    I had no idea. And I read these forums daily!


    I like that idea. After all, these are digital cameras. What is progress for? Why stop at merely replacing the film gate with a sensor? Edit: light...

    I watched it. I wasn't impressed. Not enough detail, and some crucial details were missing. I like his channel, don't get me wrong. But this needs to be deleted and redone.
