    That's what an anamorphic mode is - 4:3

    dahlfors got a reaction from Mat Mayer in If I put my laptop outside in cold will it render faster?   
    If you can lower the temp in one room, lower the temperature to somewhere around 10-14 degrees celsius. Should be a decent operating temperature for the laptop. There's often a major difference in cooling if you can lower the ambient temperature from around +22 degrees celsius to around +16, so a few more degrees cooler might be enough to quit the throttling.
    Long-term solution: get a laptop that is made for higher performance tasks for long periods. Probably will take a bit of research to find out which ones are good for such use. MBP are quite decently built for these types of uses.
    There's also laptop coolers that transports heat away from underside of computers. These might be a quick aid. They lower the temperature, but don't expect them to fully fix the throttling/overheating issue: http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/best-laptop-coolers.

    dahlfors got a reaction from Stanley in How Not To Work With A Client   
    What we learnt at school was that whatever small work we did, there should always be a foolproof contract that ensures that both parts understand what's included and what's not, even if it's a project that takes only a few days. A properly written contract can save you a lot of stress by providing you an exit from terrible clients.
    A well written contract will also protect the client and make them feel safe about buying services from you. If the client would want to avoid using a contract - that's a warning sign!

    What you want is impossible, as a diopter always limits your maximum focus distance. So no infinity, but closer focus yes. Read up on Tito's site http://www.tferradans.com/blog/?p=7282

    Joining a forum and lying about your intentions is a really a shitty way to market your product.
    If you want to get the word out about your products in a forum, do a Q&A in a thread or something - and BE HONEST about your intentions.

    Now we are talking.
    inspire 2 announced with 5.2K raw and 4K60fps raw. H265 is here too. And they will have a new kind of Osmo for it. 
    In 1" or 4/3 format. You pick.
    Isnt it funny that the best specced cameras on the market are released by a drone company without video experience? VS jokers like canon who will release 4K60fps raw and H265 in a camera of the size of a GoPro in maybe ..... we'll never.

    A successor to D750 will most certainly have 4k, since D750 has been positioned to be a good allrounder for photos & videos.
    Sooner or later they will add 4k to the APS-C models below D500, but according to Nikonrumors.com it doesn't seem like there's any 4k in D5600 (and his sources are usually correct).
    I wouldn't expect 4k in Nikon's APS-C cameras until early spring 2017 at least. I'd expect the next Nikon camera to be released with 4k would be a D750 successor.

    dahlfors got a reaction from Timotheus in Full Frame Aesthetic?   
    Given equal quality of the footage (say, not a really soft 1080p output from one of the cameras): if you match exposure and colors of footage, very few will notice - even if given the task to spot the differences. Low-light footage will be an exception, where footage from smaller sensors will be noisier (if they're from the same generation of sensor technology).
    One aspect I find important with full frame, is that I can easily find wide lenses with very little distortion for full frame. With the 28mm f/2.8 AI-S Nikkor, or with the 16-35mm f/4 I can shoot wide shots with very little distortion. The smaller the focal length, the harder it becomes to design lenses with little distortion.

    The focus ring is certainly usable on the 50mm f/1.8 for manual focusing, but it doesn't feel as good as the AI-S. Difficult to be precise if you want to rack focus or such.
    You could also buy a used 50mm f/1.8D. The used prices on those lenses have been roughly the same for 7-8 years - so if you're not happy with it, just sell it for the same money and get the 50mm AI-S f/1.8 instead. Just don't pay the extra price premium for the f/1.4D, the extra bucks aren't worth it.
    Also, keep an eye out for the AI-S 50mm lenses, sometimes there's really nice ones to be found for nearly nothing. I found mine for about 50 euro - in mint condition.

    I have shot quite a bit with the 50mm AF-D f/1.4, 50mm AF-D f/1.8 and 50mm AI-S f/1.8.
    Optically, the two f/1.8s are very similar in sharpness, but the AF-D has different flaring/ghosting characteristics (both look good, just behave a bit differently). The AI-S focus ring is certainly better for video. Only go for the AF-D if you're going to shoot stills and want the AF and metering as well.
    The 50mm f/1.4 AF-D is a decent lens, but it's very soft at f/1.4. A bit better at f/1.6, really nice at f/1.8. If this lens would break I wouldn't bother buying it again. I'd rather go for the AI-S 50mm f/1.8 or the AF-D f/1.8 - or for stills either of the new 50mm G lenses. Also, with certain directions of lights (shining nearly directly into the lens) it has a nasty type of ghosting wide open. It's rare, but it is nasty when it happens. The 50mm f/1.8 AF-D is much better in that aspect.
    Mechanically, I far prefer the 50mm AI-S over the E-series lenses I've tried. I think they're identical optically.
