    I disagree with this perspective. Take Sony's A9, for example. It is amazingly accurate and precise. A tennis player can be moving back and forth, behind the net, whatever, and the A9 locks onto them...

    It's quite amazing how long it took for AF to be useful for cinema. Even the best DSLRs can't match the A9, simply because the A9 (and here, the FX9) are looking at the actual image off the sensor....

    I had to cut that short, because I could see that these lenses weren't doing well at the edges. I suspect it's because of the sensor's cover glass. I really think that where digital cameras are...

    FWIW, the Panasonic G9 and the Fujifilm X-H1 with grip are US$999 ATM. Bargains, both of them.

    Leave the light alone. Let it do its thing without putting a stank on it. YMMV.

    Yeah, good luck with owning magenta. I bet nobody wants to own beige, though.

    As for the sun, I regret that I will not be paying royalties. In that case, I accept that the owner can begin to shut...

    Hell yes. I love those kinds of people. I wonder if he can fix that old Commodore 64 that I got really cheaply earlier this year. It was working just fine and then one day it stopped working. :-)

    If there's a way to write scripts in Resolve, something like this could work? The core code should be primary school level simple. I'm using pseudocode because I don't know what the commands are....

    I didn't realize. :-) Maybe the Helium would be the best sensor for this kind of thing.

    My theory about sensor size is that the narrower the AOV you want, the smaller the sensor should be. Look at...

    Very cool. I'm always up for astrophotography!

    It shows that in many situations, it is the larger sensors which are limiting. Imaging trying to get this shot with Monstro. You'd need an ever...

    I really liked this, thank you for sharing. I know of Stephen Schaub from a few years back when he talked about the advantages of shooting on film. He made the point that Kodak really needs to...

    Technically, if copyright has not expired (and I'm guessing it maybe hasn't) then you should get permission first. Giving away a recording does not entail that the copyright is given with it.

    I think this spot was very well done. It's the kid of ad that doesn't make you want to skip (like the Squarespace engaged couple, or the guy from William Painter). Joel's comments were fair, too.

    I'd never use it - the specs are great but it's a dinosaur. (I've never liked Canon digital cameras, ever, BTW, so I am biased). Having said that, it will do very well for video customers, even if...

    The LF doesn't have 1.5 stops over the Monstro - not at the Monstro's (nominally) native ISO. (The A7S did better than I expected, which means that the new model could be amazing). And I think you...
