    I wonder if one really needs 64GB of RAM? I mean this sort of application is outside my skill set, so maybe I'm way off. With SSDs, you really don't need an excessive amount of RAM - at least for...

    It might be odd to use a cube as a stills camera, but if it's compact enough, it can work.



    Really? That leadership doesn't seem to be trickling into their sensors or cameras. Their sensors are...

    It's better than nothing. Although Topaz doesn't do a bad job either. I wonder how these systems would do with text.

    Rand, thanks for having a go. Pretty good effort! What tools did you use? What...

    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...

    Technical objection: I would not use the world 'medicine' here. I'd say technology and surgery. Medicine is usually over-rated, and I hate to see medicine get credit for what other professions...

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

  13. 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...
  18. 100 years ago, the first issue of American Cinematographer was published

    I am loving this.



    You can download a PDF of the first issue:

    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...

    Björn, I like how Flickr thinks you used a focal length of '65535.0 mm' on the Epic. :-P
