  5. LOL Little devil you, old pirate ; -) Not mine but one of these days I'll post a comparison test comprehending P4K with ML Canons 5D2 & M : -)
  6. ..and the F6 created some buzz also. But we all know we are not getting a Scorpio, and definitely not a Nova! Maybe I could get an F6 if the price is right, but at the moment I am not going more high end than my Zoom F8.

    I'm sure they're not hurt by money but is nice to see the discount emails from Adobe. It satisfies so much to click the delete button. I guess they're reaching market saturation and alternatives are getting finally viable. On1, Affinity, Resolve, Fusion covers most of what I do and I don't have to pay the price of a small new computer every year to have the privilege of using buggy software.
  9. "Samsung said it's 8 years in development". It seems to me like they started a couple of years ago and they rushed it to be the first, just for the history books. Terrible product. They just sold 2000 and some are already broke.
  10. The time I first started making films(actually videos) was with a webcam and legos. I was actually into brickfilms at the time then I discovered Indy Mogul.

    We spent a long time in those gardens and it was a really interesting thing from a composition perspective. The trees were showing autumn colours, but in patches, so getting a good composition was pretty easy, but getting a great one was really tricky. I spent a long time trying different angles, and even moving the camera a little left, a little up, etc. Some compositions were a matter of cm here or there, especially if you were framing something with something else, which the types of trees seemed to lend themselves to. That last shot was a straight out rip-off of another photographer who had been standing there for a couple of minutes with a tripod and just left as I was walking up to the spot so I saw the composition immediately. I suspect a highly skilled individual could have extracted a dozen or more images of that standard or greater, but you know what they say.... good artists copy and great artists steal. So that shot makes me a great artist!! 😂😂😂 Also, the wife took some absolutely spectacular images from that park with her iPhone - whatever the hell the iPhone colour science was doing was absolutely bang-on for that situation. I've got it in the back of my mind to go through and find some nice shots where we took similar compositions and try and match the Apple processing with my GH5 shot in Resolve. I think it would be a real learning experience because her shots just looked amazingly saturated, clean, contrasty, but not artificial, which is something I haven't been able to achieve.

    I tell you what, getting that shot of Mt Fuji was an ordeal! We did a day trip that took us to a few unrelated places and then to a beach where you can see the mountain from. Awesome, I thought, great opportunity for a time-lapse with a great composition. We walked about 20 minutes from the bus to the beach and had a limited time there, so I setup a time-lapse, but we mostly couldn't see the mountain because it was covered in cloud, with only a little bit sticking out. Time goes on, Mt Fuji pokes out of the clouds and I realise I'm pointing at the wrong peak. I reset and go again, nothing working because it's still covered in clouds. I'm really pushing things with the time because this is our only opportunity to see the mountain, and it was the one thing the wife wanted to see but we didn't have enough time to do a special day-trip to see it. Wife starts back and I stay to try and catch a glimpse of the mountain. I push for the time we have before needing to be back at the bus, then start jogging back. I'm the last person I recognise and they don't wait for you for long because the ship has to sail. Wife is only a little bit of the way back, and had taken a wrong turn and gotten lost and just found her way back to the path. As she was on the mend from some minor surgery couldn't walk quickly, let alone run, time is now against us completely, but oh my god where are the kids? I thought they were between us and the bus (the route was pretty easy to remember so not really worried) but wife is freaking out and the bus needs to wait for her and if the kids aren't there then we're completely screwed. I run back to the bus, trying not to worry and most concentrating on wishing I was fitter, to discover the clueless kids are back at the bus and are fine, and even though we're late back to the bus, so is half the group. I visit the facilities and try to freshen up considering I'm now half drenched in sweat and we have a long bus ride back. Wife wasn't the last one back, and all stress was unnecessary. Get back to the boat and realise that the mountain is now uncovered from clouds, in full view of the jetty, and by going on board and going to an upper deck you get a great view. I then proceed to take video in 2 minute increments as the light changes in complete comfort, kicking myself for worrying. I also like this shot, which I think was the Helios, but I can't really remember. I tell you what - those gardens we went to were just spectacular - you could be walking with a camera, trip and accidentally hit the shutter, and you'd still be likely to get a good shot!
  14. Speaking of Bass I have Always been amazed by this stat since I learned it at age 30 when I was playing Bass guitar.. A 20 Hz wavelength is about 60 feet long, or 720 inches. A 40 Hz one is 28 foot long. If you are in a 14 foot room you will never hear the 40 Hz. It will cancel it's self out.

    Wow those are great. Well done. I particularly like the Mount Fuji one. What a beautiful mountain.

    @webrunner5 - I agree, there is something special about 16mm. I think that you can make a great argument that there is something special about every focal length, because in the hands of the masters all are capable of beauty and wonder. I've chosen 16mm, 35mm, and 80mm lengths, but @mercer makes a very strong case for 28mm, and if @BTM_Pix wasn't trying to make every app and gadget not yet on the market I suspect he could make a strong case for basically every other length! You've inspired me to have another look through some footage from our trip through Asia last year and post some stills. Not that I'm anything even in the same universe as a master, but I've managed to luck my way into some nice shots, proving that it's more about what you put in front of the lens than the operator. These are ungraded, apart from some quick WB and contrast, and GH5 10-bit HLG. 16mm equivalent (SLR Magic 8mm f4): I love it because it's wide, but also because it distorts things so things look grander (like the first shot), but you have to be careful not to over-do it: 35mm equivalent (Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95): I especially like the 35mm for environmental portraits, and having a fast aperture allows great low light performance as well as subject isolation. I also took a 116mm equivalent lens on that trip (58mm Helios) but have since changed my longest length to an 80mm equivalent (Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8) because 116mm was a bit too far from the 35mm equivalent of the Voigt. 116mm equivalent (Helios 58mm f2): I find the large aperture is useful for low-light, but also for getting shots through glass and defocusing the marks on the window sufficiently (the scooter shot was through a bus window). I'd only contemplate going back if I could only have one lens... fortunately that isn't the case! 😎😎😎
  17. This is the car I had before it. 1996 Mustang. Sort of like fast Red Cars lol. That Mustang was a beautiful car.

    Yes, if it wasn’t for the sheer size of that lens, it would be in my kit already. A fast wide zoom would serve two distinct purposes in my opinion... 1. As a set of wide primes... 2. A slow zoom in from 24-35mm on a person’s face to their eye could be a powerful shot. Of course, I assume it isn’t parfocal so it may not be an easy shot to get I’m not familiar with that Tamron but it seems like a good range... lol. Have you ever used the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8? I didn’t even know the lens existed until the other day. From the Flickr pages, it seems like a decent performer for its size and price. As I’ve said before, the Voigtlander 25mm 0.95 is one of the nicest lenses I’ve ever owned. It would be glued to my camera if I still shot M4/3. By the sound of your second choice it seems like maybe you’re thinking of going back to aps-c or maybe even to FF?
  19. Do you realize there is an Ursa Mini Pro ver. 2 just been out?
  20. Oh man that car is like it was on rails. I could not go anywhere without someone coming up to me and asking about it. Only car I have ever heard of that had shock absorbers in the body. They sent the bodies to Yamaha to have all the seams welded up instead of just spot welded to make them stiffer and stronger. The bodies were so stiff they had to put shocks in the body front and back horizontally to keep them from tearing apart. It had a bunch of crazy things like that in them. Lot of people raced them, and used them as drift cars also. Thing had 315-35-17 on the rear, 275's on the front. I got in a wreck. I ran Under a Semi Tractor Trailer with it. It happened at night. I had to crawl out the passenger window. After they fixed it, 13,000 Dollars later I sold it. Came close to dying. Took 2 wreckers to pull it out form under the trailer! Yeah that is my dumb ass behind the car lol.

    Good oldie 5D Mark II

    Free beats not-free most of the time. Of course, there's no such thing as free, considering that our time has value, as does the opportunity cost of only getting to shoot something once, but we all trade these things off when we make judgements about what will suit us best. @Emanuel great stuff - keep shooting @webrunner5 nice car!

    Well when I was young anything wider than a 24mm was so full of distortion you could not use it. Not counting there was hardly and lens wider than that anyways to even buy but a fisheye or two that cost as much as a new car or more. So when I bought my 16-35mm Sony FE I was amazed how wide it shot and I was like a kid in the candy store. I don't think it moved off of 16mm for a month or more lol. They are a real eye opener.

    Absolutely. I think it depends on if you tend to work more in-camera or in post. I've been working on the idea of cropping / reframing / stabilising in post for some time now and I must admit that I'm pretty useless at actually shooting wider than what I want so that's a skill I need to work on. I spent so long doing stills photography that I have an unconscious sense of composition - not that I'm great at it, but more that it's something that happens without me really thinking about it, which means I find myself composing in the viewfinder and not shooting wider like I had planned!
  24. I agree. I think 8K is more likely to be used as over-capture, in much the same way that 360 video will be, and 48kHz DAT tapes were and DSD bitstream now is for recording music.
