    Skynet launched earlier today

    Decentralized, blockchain based file sharing. Like Skynet, you can't shut it down.

    Olympus now matches Sony, as far as I have seen. I do have an Olympus but it's an older model with CDAF. That works very well for photos, but certainly not for motion. Fuji is apparently gaining, so...

    I just assumed that this would be a feature, so I didn't even think to ask. ;-)

    My prediction: by the time it's released, it won't be the magical camera that some people think it is. Sony's A7sIII will probably have a global shutter, while the R5 will probably have a rolling...

    The discussion for me has lots of nuances... but surface area matters more for film than it does for digital, as far as I know, and as far as I can tell. Monstro is superior to the Alexa 65 (and of...

    Thanks for your feedback, everyone. Even you, Marc!

    Matt, that's a pretty good effort I must say. The real problem seems to be massive underexposure, I think.

    Unlike almost everyone here, I want the smallest sensor I can get that delivers pro level image quality. Right now Micro 4/3 is the biggest sensor I want to use going forward.

    That doesn't mean I...

    Have a look at the photo at the top of this thread, taken with a disposable camera:

  10. The Leica M mount is 70 years old

    And it's superior to almost every SLR mount I know of, EF or otherwise. I mean no offence to the Raven or Komodo design teams, to whom I tip my hat, but Leica knows how to make lens mounts. ;-)

    Are you going to let it go indefinitely, or cap it at 12"? Looks rad.

    To add to Jarred's response, I should point out that Americans will never go full metric. And quite frankly I am glad of it. Even I use feet and inches to describe things now and then. E.g. car...

    I'm just sitting on the sidelines, but I think you made the right choice by choosing the Gemini.

    Is there really a need for 8K? If so, you should rent, unless of course you have the money to buy a...
  15. 100 years ago, the first issue of American Cinematographer was published

    I am loving this.



    You can download a PDF of the first issue:

    https://ascmag.com/articles/american-cinematographer-100-years-of-coverage

    It's worth a read at barely four pages long....

    Re-graining: would you not just do a film-out? Yeah it's not that simple but it would make sense.

    I have seen both of those films but I'm not totally sure what you mean. Do you mean how CGI...

    Maybe with a global shutter you will see the motion aspect improve dramatically.

    As for highlights, you would think that this has been conquered by now, but in the real world it hasn't. I find...

    Perhaps a workaround is to overexpose A by one stop, and set the X track to -3.

    Do you think that such a list should be limited to lenses which have suitable focus marks on the barrel? As nice as the Leica 0.8 lenses are, they aren't a full conversion. Neither are most sets of...

    From what I understand about post-stabilisation, if a frame is blurred, there is little you can do about it. Especially if multiple objects are going in different directions.

    Speaking of lenses, there are a few 'pancake' lenses in various mounts that could be fun to use on this camera. E.g. Contax & Pentax 45/2.8, Leica 28 Summaron.
