  1. Wow... An anonymous insider just revealed that Canon will be producing smartphones! Unfortunately, there's lots of data processing, so the smartphone from Canon will require several heat fans. There are two prototypes at the moment, differently sized... We are pleased to reveal them. Here they go! . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  2. there is Resolve 12 Configuration Guide, they say both OpenCL and CUDA are supported natively, http://documents.blackmagicdesign.com/DaVinciResolve/DaVinci_Resolve_12_Beta_Configuration_Guide.pdf though it doesn't help in choosing over a better OpenCL performing card or a better CUDA one.
  3. Version 12 is out, and it is painfully slow (for me), even with no editing, does not support AVI container (Pentax K-5), etc etc. Still it's great to try grading there, though i'd like to speed it up a bit. What kind of GPU acceleration does it use? CUDA or OpenCL? What impact does it make in grading?
  4. 8,9-89? Could it be 1/1,7''? )
  5. Maybe it's the best way for Clarkson to end this show, go undefeated and do something new. He could even crowdsource something.
  6. ​I guess for now it's just a teaser:
  7. ​It depends highly on codec settings. For example, there is a "psychovisual enhancement" technique which generally applies less bitrate to blacks, compressing them tightly and destroying all detail there. It's good when your goal is to make a small delivery file, but bad for acquisition. H.26x are the delivery formats, so they have their flaws. If you want to record the noise floor texture while your codec makes smooth blacks, you'll have to put it at a higher place.

    Samsung NX500?

    The Dutch are high on NX500: http://www.fototuerlings.nl/samsung-nx500-powerzoom-dubbel-kit-black-16-50-pz-50-20.html 28M BSI CMOS sensorHybrid Auto focus system (phase detection + contrast AF) met 205 AF punten!9 frames per second continious shootingNieuwe SMART opties: GEO tagging, 4x snellere Wifi verbinding, Bluetooth etc.2.5K (Quad HD) movieUHD Time Laps VideoTilt flip-up Super AMOLED display met TouchDubbel control wheel
  9. That's interesting, because Stefan Czech's review revealed a prominent difference in gradients shot 4:2:2 vs 4:2:0. Much more prominent that 10bit vs 8 bit (GH4).
  10. ​Grab some samples and try them!
  11. ​Well, i bet Brits appreciate their health care system not less than their consumer cameras And their "from cradle to grave" system was derived from the Soviet one. Communism had started as a capitalism critic aimed at gaining more social justice, and at that matter it made a great contribution into modern west's way of life. Anyway, NKR at its present state is a sad joke. P.S. Interestingly, we have several investment projects here, SK invited, and they're saying - "bring the NKs here to, so we can work with them together". People want to be reunited. P.P.S. Give them proper feeding and the new generation children will be tall and beautiful.
  12. ​Mac users could also try this, http://www.iffmpeg.com/ which is basically a gui for ffmpeg, which is basically all you need to transcode to ProRes.
  13. Looks like the a7s is very soft in 4k terms. Though it's less noisy than Canon in your shot. Could you post some more 4k grabs (not split, just pairs)?
  14. ​Hmm, what this jpeg example shows to me is that going to 4:2:2 from 4:2:0 is more important than 10bit vs 8bit when it comes to banding.
  15. I haven't seen the film - isn't that joke about a guy who likes to play with his personal circus, which unfortunately is a country? Korean basketball is OK
  16. ​It just didn't make sense for me, been using MPC for years, tried it with h.265 for sure, it didn't use hardware acceleration and was as slow as VLC. But they did improve h.265 playback in v.1.77: LAV Video: HEVC decoding is up to 100% fasterTicket #4783, LAV Video: Experimental support for hardware (CUVID and DXVA2) assisted decoding of HEVC streams (disabled by default)Have to try DXVA with it.
  17. To listen to your customers... that is a small step for a man and a giant leap for a company.
  18. I'm pretty sure a Sony is good choice for interviews - i saw it in True Detective. Well, why not? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Sony-Alpha-a6000-Mirrorless-Digital-Camera/ci/26675/N/3839671200 - very good price '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> - very nice video
  19. Doesn't work in quantum mechanics and camera discussions )) --- True, image capturing process doesn't allow a 100% resolution, but in general, regarding modern consumer stills cameras, a 30% oversampling provides a perfectly acceptable detalization. That's about 5.3k, close to what nx1 is doing.
  20. That's right. All you need to transcode to ProRes is ffmpeg - and a gui for the convenience.
