  1. Depends on what you're using it for. Personally, I don't find much use for these types of lights anymore. Kind of hard to control and shape.
  2. Eh, I don’t know. Panasonic doesn’t seem like that kind of company. They likely teased with the headline specs and left some things out. Never know but...doesn’t make a lot of sense to reveal details about the camera and leave out big things.
  3. GH6. It feels like the GH2-GH3 update. I remember being blown away by the GH2 and then didn’t give a single thought to buying the GH3. After this amount of time I expected some innovative stuff. This feels like something that was done in 2019 and is just now seeing the light of day because of Covid.
  4. Why do you need to shoot 5.7k instead of UHD? I don’t see the point of all of these cameras that situate themselves within the benchmark standards. If this was an alternate camera to their main line (like the GH5s) then yeah, it makes sense. For the GH6 it just doesn’t do enough differently to justify its place. Especially when you consider what other companies are doing. IBIS in the GH5 and 10 bit 4K in camera were game changing. There’s nothing here (so far) that is game changing. 5.7k 60 is nice, sure. “Nice” doesn’t spur me to spend money.
  5. Personally I think that is an underwhelming camera. Just not enough there to justify upgrading the GH5.
  6. $GME has a chance to settle above $250. Andrew seems to only be interested in the ideal, which is one that can’t really be argued and one that I believe in as well. If we, the insignificants, have a chance to make our roar heard, we need to do it. Even if the sole purpose is to remind those on top that we exist and are still here, it’s worth it to send that reminder.
  7. I get it, I just think it's important to look at all of the factors. If it's only a few hundred bucks, no big deal. I've known people that got tens of thousands into a crypto days before it dropped and they were stuck for years trying to recoup. Listen, I'm ALL for crypto and decentralization. I started a stock video site and cryptocurrency to try and decentralize stock video. A platform where creators get 100% of the commission. The problem is...even crypto is monopolized. Guess how much it costs to get a crypto onto any decent exchange? 40+ BTC. At least. Then the exchanges take a fee every time you make a transfer. Monopolization follows innovation, inevitably. Remember...Robinhood was supposed to be decentralized.
  8. As someone that was into crypto fairly early, there's a few things you need to look at with any of these projects. Important numbers to investigate: #1 - Bitcoin total coins: 18.6 million #2 - Bitcoin current price: $33,500 #2 - Bitcoin Market Cap (current price x total coins): $706 billion #3- Dogecoin total coins: 128 billion #4 - Dogecoin current price: $0.04 #5 - Dogecoin Market Cap (current price x total coins): $5 billion So let's say, in a perfect world, Dogecoin replaces Bitcoin as the top cryptocurrency and sucks up ALL of their market cap. No one trades Bitcoin anymore (it will never happen but let's just use it as an example). To calculate this you match their market caps. Dogecoin is currently 5 billion and Bitcoin is 706 billion. So Dogecoin would have to increase by 141x to be as popular as Bitcoin. Even in that unrealistic scenario, Dogecoin price per coin would top out at $5.64. So that is the best case, pie in the sky, never going to happen scenario for Dogecoin. Best case scenario for Dogecoin will be ten to twenty cents and then a correction back down here to five cents or so. I love what WSB is doing with $GME but I wouldn't get into that right now. Not with the power of Wall Street against it. Just not a place you want to put your money right now. Obligatory "I'm not a financial advisor" warning.
  9. I think the problem might be a little deeper than this. I fear that traditional films as a medium may be in jeopardy. Extrapolate this all out. Movies come to streaming, they don’t perform nearly as well as “binge worthy” shows because...how could they, if success is determined by watch time then a movie simply doesn’t have that on its side. Audiences have shorter and shorter attention spans so I don’t think movies will perform all that well on these streaming services, certainly not well enough to justify the budgets. So you’re going to see budgets being cut...massively to continue producing films at a high level. I just have a fear that the traditional 120 minute film medium is on the plank right along with the theater chains.
  10. I think the final sentence is the best piece of advice you can give. Seriously, at this point is there a worse investment than a new camera if you don't have a job that specifically requires it? YouTube channels or blogs promoting new gear and tech during this pandemic is not just irresponsible it's almost a little sinister.
  11. I’ve never seen a video of theirs, so no. It’s not really an impression of anyone in particular, just a broad and excessively energetic impression of the average YouTuber I guess.
  12. I shall redeem myself. A tutorial for how to summon the Squarespace gods should do the trick.
  13. Also also also. Also forgot to stretch it to 10+ minutes with fluff.
