    I don't own a MFD camera but there are a few things I can say. Firstly, sensor size isn't necessarily an indicator of quality or DR. But, if a MFD back has an LCD, and it's 22Mpx or more, it should...

    You learn something every day! I would say you're right. It sure looks like it. I don't like the shaky cam at the end though. Too forced. I loathe affectations.
  3. Ladies and gentlemen, the Seinfeld Lego set

    It's real, baby. The likenesses aren't great but hey, it's Lego:

    I bought a DV camera with progressive scan back in '08. Finally! After 25 odd years of video cameras, progressive scan was being made available in affordable cameras. It would take longer for high...

    No mention of Jim's experience as a photographer and cinematographer (and camera collector). No market context. This person basically took a bunch of random facts, and other people's footage, and...

    It's like a credit card statement, only that it is immutable as far as the security of the blockchain allows. The key is that it's decentralised and permissionless.
  7. 'I Am Batman' - footage of a fan made game based on Batman (1989)

    Sadly there will probably never be an executable available.

    FWIW I have never sharpened a single photo and I don't think that I ever will. YMMV.

    Anyone who says that it isn't "true" photography is a fool. First came motor winders, then AF, then digital, then mirrorless, and eventually, the physical shutter will disappear. Simultaneous with...

    Genetic fallacy.


    It uses less electricity overall than all the banks combined. The most efficient crypto per transaction is HBAR, followed I think by XRP. HBAR is apparently more efficient than...

    Wallet addresses are not tied to your identity. Even if you wanted to, you can't directly bind them and your identity together. Here is one wallet address (not mine) with its transactions and...

    That's exactly what it was designed to do: to provide anonymity, and also to provide an open ledger so if you wanted, you could prove that a transaction took place.

    John, you make a good point about CPU coins in general. There aren't many of them about. I do wish that Bitcoin were ASIC resistant, if not GPU resistant. Ether seems to be ASIC resistant enough so...

    A long while ago. Of course, it took me years to refine it, as is the case with most people. Once you "get it", you can't lose it. Criticism helps a lot. Sometimes, one small critique can make a big...
  17. In the future, nobody will make movies with cameras or actors

    Or, will they? Maybe I'm looking way, way too far ahead. But Unreal Engine 5 is quite convincing.

    Dan, the price of the phone has come down a lot recently. It might be worth buying an entire phone and keeping one of them as a back-up.

    I think Jim had to step back because of health issues. He certainly wanted to make a successor. Android is terrible but that is not Jim's fault.

    The biggest mistake was not the processor but the...

    Mike, I am not sure that I agree that film should be used for films set prior to 2000. However, specifics aside, you have a point. You could argue that at most you should do a film-out. It will save...

    Android is neither free (as in beer) or free (as in freedom). The difference between Apple and Google is that Apple doesn't pretend.

    There's certainly nothing wrong with the camera per se as far as taking photos is concerned. However, consider this: enough time has passed so that you have cameras like the Olympus E-M1 II, which is...

    I won't be buying a new phone until Apple starts making iPhones in India or perhaps somewhere like Brazil or even the USA (you never know). It's nice that this is a Japanese made phone, and a 1"...
  24. A revolution in optics: the spaceplate

    If this can actually be used as a viable product, kiss goodbye to pretty much every single lens that you currently own. Because this has the possibility to be one of those developments that changes...

    Maybe a solution is to document every part of the process, including notarisation, and always use serial numbers etc? Or is that not relevant here?
