  1. I think there is always a debate in Sony headquarter office about "what should be our flagship?!", Canon has more experience in defining the flagship position and defend that clearly defined position. While I don't like Canon lineup, and its cripple hammer, I understand its logic. If rumors are true about Z8 being Z9 without grip, there is hope we'll have a winner 8k camera.
  2. For me, cinematic has a straight forward meaning: a quality of cinematography that I never notice the cameraman. What these people do is exactly opposite of that, the only actor I notice during the video, is the cameraman.
  3. Remember the rumors circulated for so long people consider it as fact? "Sony will release the first 100MP full frame camera and crush the competition". Turned out Nope, they have to reuse their old sensor cause new stacked ones are way more expensive.
  4. We always underestimate our ability to handle pain of losing someone. Never say "I can't". Time will be your ally in this fight.
  5. Nikon is no different. They have filed a lot of patents for Z mount communication. They wouldn't do that if they wanted to make it open, or less restrictive. Even the content of the patents indicates a long term plan is integrated into the mount, since they have defined a generation compatibility. Its like Gen2 body uses the most potential capabilities of Gen2 lens, but can't use all capabilities of Gen3 lens, or something like that.
  6. Continuing EF would send a mixed message to their customers, also glass production capacity is very limited these days. Otherwise a $2500 EF lens profit margin is not lower than equivalent $2500 RF one.
  7. Digital stabilization works better with higher shutter speed; cause you don't see the micro motion blur. For serious video production we can't use any shutter speed we like. But for YouTube, sure its good enough.
  8. Imagine Nikon or Panasonic do this.. yelling thumbnails with "seriously?" title on them would explode in our YouTube home page.
  9. OIS or IBIS have almost no problem dealing with severe vibrations. Their killer is dust. Even if your lens is "weather sealed", its not immune to dust. Stabilizer being on lens or sensor, use very tiny metal balls lubricated by a special oil, to move smoothly. If that oil contaminated by environment particles, it loses its required viscosity, and the result is jumpy moves.
  10. Chip shortages and thin profit margin. Look at the Nikon announcement today. Everybody is trying to use the parts they already have in inventory or still available to order. This one has 1 inch sensor and two of them, at just $700! Japanese gave up single 1 inch P&S at $1000. I don't want to be business manager of this company.
  11. It actually turned to a good discussion: what exactly defines a cine camera?
