  1. I suppose this proves that marketing budgets, e.g. all expense paid trips (to Hawaii, etc.) & drinks for reviewers for positive write-ups and videos only goes so far.

  3. eh, it's a bad situation with "free trade" and "fair trade". I was going to look into a Huawei cellphone and compare it with the One Plus 7. Then this trade issue came up. It's not that a cellphone is a "must have" with me. It certainly would be great to have a better one. The one I have I received for free for signing up to a carriers phone plan two years ago. So it's cheap with not much or a processor, little memory and a camera that usually blows out highlights easily. Surely these new cellphones have very, very good cameras. These newer cellphones, I'm sure, have been eating up mirrorless camera sales. So, my thoughts are a mirrorless camera with better picture quality and wifi or Bluetooth capabilities teamed up with a rather average cellphone with a decent processor and memory capacity. Any suggestions? One Plus 7 starts at $700, right? So I'm ambivalent about the cellphone/trade issue. Overall the issue affects many other industries in the states, especially agriculture. Yeah, it's nice to have a top notch cellphone, but it's not a big deal if it's not-so-top shelf as far as I'm concerned. Back in the day that would be called "keeping up with the Jones"". And rather have a bridge or mirrorless camera that takes better picture quality and matched with a cellphone that can upload the media to wherever. Any suggestions for that better mirrorless or bridge camera?
  4. what a motley crew of the mirrorless counterculture ... okay, I'm in ... yet that highlight/glare on your forehead ... geez! Come on, man! Got your hands full anyway! Good luck on the podcast: it's certainly needed and overdue. Congratulations
  5. that's a gem: thank you Thank you very much
  6. Thanks for being honest. Mostly I read here and try to learn (when the discussion doesn't go way over my head). I'll make no major purchases until retirement. That said, I noticed blown out highlights in both videos and was getting disappointed by it. Like, geez, I get that same result shooting with an older bridge camera with a one inch sensor. So, okay, thanks for clarifying part of the blown out highlights issue. There are probably other factors involved with that ... so that's why I'm here to learn.
  7. The Eye-Detect AF looks good in the video, but what is with the highlights in the background? It looks blown out to me. What's with that.
  8. no 4K video, no IBIS, no telephoto lens on the RXmk2 unless I'm missing something
  9. that's what I'm talking about FF, include 4k video + IBIS, fast zoom lens: bridge
  10. So, what is the cost & profit margin for Samsung with this full frame sensor? Sure Samsung could supply other manufacturers ... however, a full frame bridge camera with a fast telescopic lens is undeserved in the marketplace. For the right price it would be a great travel camera and certainly better than a smartphone. I'd buy it quickly.
  11. Perhaps a silly idea, but why couldn't Samsung put it in a bridge camera with a great, fast telescopic lens and blow up the market? That keeps expenses on the Samsung side way down.
  12. Most camera manufacturers will need to provide more value in their product ... the next iPhone is said to have an excellent camera; it will put pressure on the Sonys and Panasonics to deliver more value.
  13. Probably get more out of YouTube reviews/tutorials than this streaming: this has less to do with consumers than it does with corporate customers; that said, thanks for the streaming. 5 minutes given to A7S
  14. It does not offer H.265 HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding)? I do not claim to know much, but I do not live at 12 Under Rock Drive.
