    The 18-55 is 2.8-4f and the 16-55 has no IS. This is a huge disadvantage of the whole system, no real workhorse.

    Have you used the 18-55?? It's a 300€ lens when purchased as a kit with the body! 

    I agree and would love to see prime with IS from Fujifilm. 

  2. The problem of the new Mac Mini it's that once you put 16Gb RAM and 512Gb SSD (minimum 2018 standards) and you add a eGPU, it costs the same as an iMac, but with the iMac you get a nice monitor. The only Mac Mini advantage is transportability, if you need to have something you can throw in your backpack. 

  3. It's time for me to get a new camera! And I am torn between the XT3 and the Sony A7 III both with the kit lens. I have a set of russian m42 lenses and a set of Olympus OM Zuikos, plus several Canon EF-S (18-135mm, 10-18mm, Sigma 30mm, 50mm macro). I love to shot hand-held, so I feel Sony's IBIS and full frame would exploit better my lenses. But at the same time I love everything about the Fuji!!! Can I get a cheap adaptor which would permit me to use the Canon lenses with at least aperture control and IS on the Fuji??

    Fully articulating screen would be ok by me, but a better experience with the playmemories app for remote control, including tap to focus would be even better.

    I read this for a second: "Fully articulating screen would be ok by me, but a better experience with the playmates..."!!! Fuck the articulating screen, gimme da playmates!!! ;-DD

    The tariffs pre-date the Alexa - and digital film cameras in general - by many years to be fair. It was for European broadcast manufacturers like Thomson and Philips to compete with the Japanese and US manufacturers.

    The upper rate was/is a leftover from the VCR days.

    I had to buy a Mini-DV walkman because in Europe we couldn't have DV-in enabled through Firewire. I love the idea of UE, but hate how it has been implemented.

    "so many people can’t interpret the correct target of a film or even a joke, because they are too thick."

    A joke, or a film that has to explain itself to the audience is a failure. If the audience don't get it, then you as an artist have failed, you've either marketed it in such a way that the wrong people are going to see it, or you're not a very good artist.

    I don't agree, unless we are talking about "commercial art" which are two words that don't go well together.

    Does not overheat, unfortunately it still has the 30 minute record limit. 

    So I assume you can rehit record every 30 minutes for a couple of hours, no problem?

    I would love the sensor of this Sony and the codecs from the GH5!!! ;-)

  8. I have the Sony A7 III in my mind. If someone has it and have found big problem, please tell me. And a couple of basic questions: does it overheat?? Can you record a couple of hours straight??  Thanks!

  9. I have work in several film festivals, even created one from scratch. Mostly when there were 10% of the festivals that now exists. 

    Main factors:

    Public: You need people watching the films, besides the boy/girl/friends of directors. Maybe you can sync your festival with some other event that assures you people. All the festivals that survive do so because they have a public. 

    Selection: Local short-films are a good start for easiness, but most will probably suck (sorry for the lack of optimism). So either accept only short ones (less than 5 minutes) or comedies, you can't accept ALL unless you hate humanity and your public. Most directors of shortfilms that suck probably won't be happy to talk about their work. You can embrace "suckness" (?) and do a trash comedy festival. Or a 24 minutes to do your trash film competition.

    It's official.  Gopro is out of the drone business.  You should be a business consultant.  You called it almost two years early.  Do you have any stock tips?

    Gopro stock plunged 27% today.  Stock was halted.  Revenue projects have been slashed.  Mass firings are to ensue.


    I am often right in my predictions, but never tried to make money from it! 

    GoPro should have made a GoPro PRO model, but long time ago.
