    Be patient! Let the guy breathe. ;-)


    AF is still being developed, but it is phase detection based. It's not going to be Sony-like for a while - that stuff takes time. No IBIS, either.

    Phil, thank you for this thread. I know that what you do is a thankless task sometimes. After reading and watching so many gear reviews, I understand that it's not as easy as readers think it is.

    I am not surprised in the slightest. I'm probably behind the curve here, while many others dismiss this kind of thinking and don't take it seriously. Some things will always be simpler and cheaper to...

    Mother f.....!

    Of course I saw the writing on the wall for commercial photography a while ago. This is evidence that for many commercial still images, cameras will not be required. If I were a...

    I was originally going to just quote this to emphasise how important this kind of feature is. But I noticed something else: this is very film-like. If the battery dies on a film camera, or if the...

    This really belongs in the Off Topic forum. As for cinematography, this production was poorly lit and shot. Having said that, none of it is news to me. I've been made aware of the futility of...

  11. Hand-held video of an insect with a 60mm macro lens on an Olympus E-M1 III

    Perhaps of some interest. It's not perfect, but it's amazing what you can do without a gimbal. I imagine that gimbals do have a place - I am not an expert camera operator. But if we're going to use...

    I was just thinking that this morning. Small set-ups, large set-ups, stereo set-ups, multicam set-ups, and so on.

    If I were a scientist I'd buy one just because of its global shutter. That's very...

    Whoa man. The Akeley is beautiful. The others are a joke! I didn't know that Universal made their own cameras. What a different world it was.

    I'm not a Red owner but I can say a few things that you may find useful.

    I've heard very good things about the Leica SL and the Sony A9 as video cameras. One guy said that he never grades his SL...

    I'm surprised that mechanised cameras weren't already developed by 1912. We've had spring-powered clocks since I think the 18th century.
  17. The world's first all-metal movie camera from 1912, the B&H 2709

    This is a relatively modern looking camera given that it's from 1912. Sure, it's hand cranked and has a primitive parallax viewfinder, but it's surprisingly capable.

    Sorry to hear the sad news. Camera rentals must be quite a fun industry, I bet.

    From what I have seen, I concur. Although we can fairly say that they are both great in that department. It's a choice between good and better, not bad and good. And Red did it without dual gain....

    I liked it! I'm not into horror but this was more paranormal, which is my cup of tea. Horror is too scary, supernatural is too trite. Paranormal allows nuance and poses more questions than answers.

    Very interesting. So, Mike, if I read you correctly, you can do internal RAW at 4K, while recording 5K FF 1080 via SDI/HDMI at the same time? I can see this being quite useful for commercial work,...

    Bitcoin and crypto

    None of this is investment advice. I have no business telling you what to do with your money. But, if you're like me, it's a good time to start accumulating Bitcoin and other crypto coins.
