    I really like it. I especially love the full screen video and the red text over it. I agree with Aaron about parallax scrolling. When I went full screen, then back again, it made my browser go a bit...

    I always wanted a Silicon Graphics computer. I don't know if I would have really exploited it, but it didn't matter. I just wanted one (the Indy). I lost respect for the company when it went Intel...

    Those Optimos look amazing. But at that price? Phew. You wouldn't want to own those. I would have more fun discovering photographic lenses and cinevizing them. Look at how cheap 645 lenses are, for...

    Wait. You mean you like the base of the monitor at keyboard height? Like a laptop? I prefer the centre of the display almost at eye height.

    Holy shit. This thing is sublime. I haven't been excited about computers since, well, a long time ago. Apple has indeed outdone itself.

    I mean this affectionately, but:

    I am 100% confident that it will. I mean think about it. Do you really want a Phase One over this? Does a reflex VF mean so much to you that you'd pay over double the cost of the GFX? No way. This...
  8. Large format cinematography at a reasonable price - the Fujifilm GFX100

    "That's not a knife. This is a knife."

    The sensor is slightly wider than Monstro, and does full-width 4K. The camera is about the same size as a high end DSLR, yet offers so much more per cubic...

    If you can't possess a discrete installer for an application, turn your back. But, I guess we can thank Adobe for spurring competitors, including open source projects.

    Here's an example of a vaguely similar problem that faced Ron Garcia while shooting Fire Walk With Me:

    RED won't be doing internal NDs. However, the option to have AF is a very good idea. There are problems with phase detection AF, which is why Leica and Panasonic don't have that. Unfortunately, it's...

    Well, let's reset, and forget everything you've read so far. This is what you have: an apparently dark room, lit mostly by what seem to be diffused lights out of frame, and the flashlight is either...

    I'm pretty sure that Phil Holland likes the Tokina Cinema Vista (as in VistaVision) lenses. And they seem to meet all of your criteria:

    I'm going to go further! Yes, you are right here, but thing about this: Macs will move to ARM, just like they did from 68K to PPC, and from PPC to Intel. Right? But something else happened, too,...

    Says who? ;-) I do without those just fine. I probably will never use them. Sure, they have niche uses, but Photoshop, for example, is redundant for most photographers. Most photographers use it,...

    My choices are simple: free, or paid and owned. Simple as that. I use both free software and paid commercial software. I do not do renting when it comes to software.

  17. 'Why making things better only makes them worse'

    Read this, then apply it to data integrity. Or, pretty much anything. Active safeguards, which aim for perfection, can cause catastrophe. Perhaps the answer is passive safeguards instead? This issue...

    Ay caramba! Surely if you're dealing with 5K and less, you could bring that figure down?




    Does all this software (I'm mainly thinking of Resolve) recognize multiple GPUs? Because, it might...

    Here's a fun challenge: what's the best editing workstation you can build for under US$1,000? I bet you could get something pretty darned good. Given that Resolve is available for Linux, you aren't...

    Maybe RED can make a module adapter for dual/quad SD cards or XQD cards? Just an idea.

    I'm not a fanatic when it comes to dual cards as far as photography goes, although I take a dual card slot if...

    There are some new CPUs (and I think GPUs) from AMD coming soon, so if you can wait to do a comparison, it might be a good idea. Just FWIW.

    Also FWIW, I question the need for more than 16GB of...

    I agree that for reportage or documentary work, AF is, at worst, better than nothing. Here's a look at the Sony A9 with the 400/2.8 G Master. Sony has unbeatable AF, and they have been working on it...
