    That's a 25% increase in frame rate, which is more than what you'd think at first glance. That's good for temporal information, but maybe not so good for the aesthetic. I don't think I've yet seen a...

    Can the soft shutter on the Motion Mount fix the stuttering at 24fps? If so, then we don't need 30fps. And, BTW, I have an idea of how to introduce soft shutter to film cameras that doesn't involve a...

    That's great news mate. The life of the Red ONE just got extended.

    Beautiful CGI animated artwork

    It's an NFT and it sold for $40,000. Turn the sound on for maximum effect. Imagine this on a huge screen in a public space at night.

    Very interesting. It's worth noting that 360 degrees is one full stop more than 180. I think the most you can get on a film camera is 220 or so. Imagine taking a film camera down there. ;-)

    Well, I enjoyed that, even though it was a bit longer than it could have been. I really liked the underwater shots in that beautiful, clear water. I wonder if I would get a bit claustrophobic down...

    Thanks for sharing this, Scot. Very well done, I thought. And this little chick knows what she's doing, too. It's almost as if ballet was invented for the sake of photography. ;-)

    LOL But seriously I tend to agree that they are American. I have no evidence either way of course. But if they are foreign, why would a foreign nation play its hand so early?

  10. The US Navy and UFOs - something is definitely going on

    But what, exactly?

    "Swarms" of UFOs chased Navy destroyers for weeks.

  11. A 14 year-old cinema camera that shoots 12-bit 4K RAW for under $2,000

    I wouldn't have one, but it holds up fairly well in 2021. Back when this thing was new, 2K was "enough" according to other manufacturers (which was code for "we don't know how to do 4K yet"). To be...

    I would like to make a public service announcement to warn against the effects of binge watching. ;-)
  13. As I said above, those focal lengths are not...

    As I said above, those focal lengths are not equivalent. In any case, there are lenses other than the Super Speeds. I couldn't help but notice the distortion in The Shining - it was shot with Super...
  14. If you are talking about barrel and pincushion:...

    If you are talking about barrel and pincushion: no. And even if the answer were yes, you can correct those on most lenses (some complex distortions are not so easy to fix).


    I was referring to...
  15. Shallow focus, yes, that is pretty much correct....

    Shallow focus, yes, that is pretty much correct. As far as distortion goes, no, distortion is not reduced with larger formats.


    Good catch on both of those points - although obviously speed...

    I don't know what this is about, but I, too, would like to thank Phil for his contribution to this site. Cheers!

    Yes, absolutely. But your footage would have extremely weak fidelity and resolution.
  18. Video: 'Why 1080p Is More Future Proof Than We Thought'

    As a follow-up to Dean Butler's post about acquiring an old Alexa:

    Indeed. Very few people spoke out about Asian discrimination when universities were penalising them some years ago. Does it take violent attacks to get people to acknowledge discrimination?

    You'll have to be more specific. I'm not sure to what you're referring. If you are referring to the shooting at the Aromatherapy Spa in Atlanta, the FBI has stated that it does not appear that the...

    I know you apologised, but let's play the ball, not the man, eh? :-)


    This is not scientifically correct. There are differences between lenses, like resolution, CA, etc. But Meizler was referring...

    I put it up on Vimeo as well FWIW:

    It worked on all of my browsers on Mac OS X 1.15.2.

    I mean no disrespect but that is not a meaningful statement.

    That's fair enough.
  24. Sounds reasonable. AFAIK ProRes is really good,...

    Sounds reasonable. AFAIK ProRes is really good, so I don't think that lack of RAW is a handicap. I wouldn't have one, but there's no doubt that at these prices, the value is terrific for how you're...

    Thanks for posting this. So far I have seen only 3 of the episodes. I'm definitely glad that it wasn't a feature film. I had no idea what they used to film it but it was obviously digital. My friends...
