  1. 1080p30? That is hilarious. Let the mass Canon video exodus continue.
  2. What a horribly executed announcement. Why have a guy who barely speaks English do an English announcement??? Sony need to get some more lively presenters.
  3.   I guess we're kind of just down to semantics now, but really, any fictional story is open to interpretation. Not all fictional stories are allegory though. It would be a WWII allegory if the author meant for it to be interpreted that way, but he didn't. Of course that's not to say his views and life experiences didn't influence his storytelling.
  4. Also, just so you know, LOTR was not an allegory tale. Tolkien made that very clear in interviews.   http://youtu.be/acqOGX62gys  
  5. Just watched it in 2D. It made a HUGE difference. I wasn't so sure about it after seeing it in 3D, but in 2D, I loved it. I think if you've only seen it in 3D, you should give it a shot in 2D.
  6. I wouldn't be quite that hard on the movie itself, but I do agree the 3D is a much bigger concern than the frame rate. I'm seeing it in 2D 24p tonight. I also think they didn't get the shutter speed right. I really don't think it was the frame rate.
  7. Sony's a99 product page: "[color=#333333][font=arial][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]The a99 gives you the ability to record Full HD 1080 video at a spectrum of professional frame rates, including 60p, 60i and 24p. Plus, you can output uncompressed, clean-screen 60p/60i video files via HDMI to external recording devices[/background][/size][/font][/color][url="http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666485827"][sup]1[/sup][/url][color=#333333][font=arial][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]."[/background][/size][/font][/color]
  8. [quote name='QuickHitRecord' timestamp='1347420384' post='17800'] Impressive. But what happened to in-body stabilization? [/quote] The a99 has it. It's in the specs on Sony's a99 product page.
  9. Not much in the "full" specs about video...
  10. [quote name='tttulio' timestamp='1344538967' post='15221'] a FS100 in a NEX body would be awesome. Bring on the NEX100. [/quote] Well, the FS100[i] [/i][i]has [/i]an NEX body... It's called the NEX-FS100...
  11. [quote name='Julian' timestamp='1344533565' post='15215'] On the other hand, it seems quite likely Sony will come with a fullframe NEX (mirrorless) in the near future. [/quote] I'm not so sure about that. For one thing, all of Sony's E-Mount lenses are APS-C only. I was watching a presentation on the NEX camera line and when asked about a full frame NEX the Sony official said there were currently no plans to make one, and he thought it was unlikely, mainly because the main point of those cameras is the compact design, and a huge full frame sensor would not really make sense. It's a shame, but we're probably stuck dealing with the Alpha Mount for full frame cameras from Sony.
  12. I'm not saying we shouldn't acknowledge movies like Citizen Kane as some of the greatest achievements in filmmaking history. I'm just saying that as time goes on, we improve based on what we've learned from history's examples. We're just better at making films these days, and that comes from both technology and what we've learned from historic films like Kane. I'm all for a list that celebrates historically great films. It's just that the bar naturally rises over time, and that's a good thing. Maybe it'll top off someday, kinda like novel writing. But we are still learning the secrets of the craft, and the technology continues to improve, so we haven't reached that point yet.
  13. [quote name='Anil Rao' timestamp='1343967683' post='14900'] These films were made by artisans who did not rely upon magic bullet or any other app or plug in or cgi, to achieve such greatness, that's what makes them so evocative for me. Without the digital tools of today or such easy editing applications to pick and choose from what magnitude could be reached by most people, very little. [/quote] I definitely agree and acknowledge the tremendous achievements of these films. But that's exactly why I say this list is really more of a "Greatest Films At Their Time", or maybe "Greatest Accomplishments in [i]Filmmaking[/i] Of All Time" list. It isn't intended for the viewer of a film to think about how difficult or innovative it was for the filmmakers, or how easy it is for everyone to do now. The viewer should be immersed in the film and in what is going on in the story. So in judging the true greatest films of all time, I think all the considerations of how difficult or innovative they were should go out the window. But that's just how I see it.
  14. [quote name='HurtinMinorKey' timestamp='1343933737' post='14867'] It's not that these movies arn't all great, but a lot of them are difficult to apreciate once you have seen what's come after. Movies like Citizen Kane and 2001 were extremely innovative, but if you watch them out of context they are really sort of meh(for lack of a better word). [/quote] Agreed. It's more like a "Best Films Of All Time At Their Time" list.
  15. I have the NEX-5N. I've had zero issues just importing the native AVCHD files, opening the scopes and grading the highlights down. So I'm gonna just keep doing that. It's simple and easy and it works.
