  1. You think believing the Kavanaugh accusers is wrong because it's based on feelings rather than evidence, but then chose to believe that they are lying, based on your own gut feelings. And somehow this has something to do with Pol Pot and Stalin?
  2. You are wrong to equate them. Bernie Sanders held to the same beliefs for years, even though it made him politically unpopular. It took decades for enough of a critical mass to come around to his way of thinking that it became feasible for him to run for president. The evidence is that he is a man who has held true to his beliefs and fought for them all his life. Trump on the other hand is a populist demagogue who made a late pivot into politics out of his business/entertainment career. Not that long ago he was considered to be a friend of the Clintons.
  3. This is bullshit. The left hates Trump for what he says. For his race baiting, for his sexism, for his climate change denial, etc. If he believed and acted in accordance with their beliefs, they'd speak well of him. It would require a drastic turn around to reverse the negative perceptions of him, but that's what your hypothetical is suggesting. It's a useless assertion anyway, since it's impossible to prove or even provide evidence for. As for your end justifies the means argument for Trump support, no matter how ignoble his conduct - have some goddamn integrity. It's true that many on tbe left mindlessly follow 'their guy', but there are also people out there with integrity, who are ready to criticise the deatructive policies of Obama or Hillary and the damage they've done to the world. Suppoting Trump on the other hand is excusing a lot of shitty human behaviour for the sake of 'your guys' holding power. Be careful of what you're undermimining and what you're going to lose.
  4. Full frame cine/Eng hybrids will help with the transformation of the evening news into YouTube.
  5. It's really documentary where the crazy high DR becomes a major feature, no? In the early days of cinema feature filmmakers were lighting to film that held significantly less DR than any recent hybrid.
  6. It is an issue for Sony cameras. It's one of the reasons I've chosen Panasonic cameras. You only hear the complaints about the S cameras because it's what Panasonic users expect. This is supposed to be a hybrid camera and they haven't included one of the most useful features for video shooting.

    Panasonic LUMIX V1

    Chances of Panasonic putting SDI on a DSLR style body are maybe a smidge above zero.
  8. Yep. You either do it, or you don't.
  9. Haha at the thumbs down. It's a joke about black people being stupid and unintelligible - if you're going to post it in a public forum like this, own up to what it is.
  10. When they call it a 'true digital film camera', what they mean is that you need to always watch the capacity and reload it often. Only with batteries instead of film.
  11. Man, I *hope* they'll bring this thing to M43. It's a little ironic that this tech that's kept us M43 true believers faithful for years finally hits at a time when it seems Panasonic are shifting their professional push to the full frame world. Full frame is a shark infested red ocean market. I think getting a foothold there is much riskier than leveraging their existing M43 system with incredible tech that redefines the format, but I fear their execs see dollar signs from the higher margins of a fully 'pro' L-Mount system. I doubt there'll be a GH6s. I don't believe the GH5s has been a sales success, and its existence depended on a fairly novel sensor from Sony. As a security sensor, that thing could stay on the market for years , and if Panasonic/Blackmagic aren't putting in a pre-order soon then I don't see the need for a replacement before the Tokyo Olympics (presumed GH6 launch deadline). If the organic sensor is as wondrous as claimed, there'd be little need for a GH6s anyway.
  12. Will be close to ideal once the D-tap cord is widely available. A better option than the dummy battery, since you could charge a real battery as you run the camera.
  13. I'd trade IBIS for a proper 4mm MFT filter stack.
  14. It depends on how you shoot. It might not be a major issue for many, but I draw a lot of inspiration from the aesthetic of directors who make prominent use of ultra wides like Terry Gilliam, Terrence Malick and Michael Mann (of late), so it is for me.
  15. It would be good to see some infinity focus tests on the Voigtlander 17.5 - that lens has quite a bit of field curvature.
  16. Hollywood loves the Alexa for its reliability as much as anything else.
  17. What kind of performance did you get out of the 60w version?
  18. Has the NF-A8 ULN worked out well for you with the Godox? Considering ordering it but I'm seeing some conflicting reports on PV.
  19. I wish Blackmagic gave the camera to more 'filmmaker' types and less 'promo' types for their sample shorts. The Colour of Light video was nice as a demo but the voice over was poorly written, and the Lost Generation video was pretentious bro douchery. The wedding video was actually the most interesting and artistic footage they put out!
  20. I'm in the same place. From what I've heard, yes, but some people have found success with replacing it with a quieter fan.
  21. Noise performance of the Blackmagic is amazing.
  22. I definitely prefer the softer, less digital look of the P4K image, really nice. The noise levels are mostly due to playing to the weaknesses of the GH5s though, by underexposing in V-Log.
