    • 1.74x - A Crop Odyssey - Canon 5D Mark IV officially announced
      I always calculate crop using horizontal dimension (whether it's mm or pixel count), in the case of a standard M4/3 sensor which is 17.3mm wide, the crop factor is 36/17.3= 2.08x, which we simply say as 2x. Diagonal size is too complex and yields the same results. The 1.06x thing you mentioned is also pointless, not because nobody says that, it's just an incorrect way of calculating.
    • 1.74x - A Crop Odyssey - Canon 5D Mark IV officially announced
      The GH1 and GH2 used a different 1.86x crop for video because it was a multi-aspect sensor, bigger than the usual Micro4/3 area. The diagonal crop of the sensor is 2.00x (43.3:21.6=2.00) because what matters is the image circle and the video crop that is 2.08x, or 2.1x like you said, but nobody says that video has an extra crop because for practical matters it doesn't matter, the FOV is the same, otherwise even in FF there is a 1.06x crop for video, but who talks about it? Nobody. This is discussion pointless, if you don't understand that, it's ok.
    • Gopro 4 black update!!
      That is good news. Thanks.
    • 1.74x - A Crop Odyssey - Canon 5D Mark IV officially announced
      Well, I'm hoping that the Mark3 drops dramatically in price, so I can pick one up for cheap & shoot nice pictures, whilst taking advantage of ML RAW in Full Frame. 4K in 8-bit is a joke, but not as big a joke as using Log with an 8-bit codec.
    • Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the highest paid actor
      The outside looking in is always an interesting perspective.  The USA is typically a bit of a mess, and there's a blessing in that. You might as well.  We all do over here too. And I wouldn't worry too much about it.  Intellectual films will always be niche.  Dumb films just have broader appeal.  It's quite simple, really.   A genius, sitting amongst a crowd of morons, can appreciate stupid slapstick and a fart joke.   However, those morons wouldn't feel comfortable at an art house while that same genius chuckles knowingly at the cutting cultural insight of a witty turn of a phrase or convoluted allegory.   So what'cha gonna do?  Smart films have to stay small, dumb films go big.  Some try to have it both ways and succeed.  It's all part of the mix.
