  1. I remember this article :D https://library.creativecow.net/galt_john/John_Galt_2K_4K_Truth_About_Pixels/1
  2. Very well done. I now look way more positively on Sony. Looking for A6300. My main concern are good simple menus, ergonomic and logical GUI. Things buried in menus are killing me. Change in color science towards more natural and mellow skin tones out of the camera would be fantastic. Lenses are another story, which takes way more time and development to buld good rank. Also avoiding noobs with preproduction models would be realy realy great. Thanks for listening!
  3. Did Philip Bloom also run in to these problems, or his last marriage with Sony as their ambassador keeps him shut his lips tight?
  4. There is maybe a bit uncertainty if 5K iMac system is really sendig real 5K resolution and playing your 4K footage in full 4K and not cheating somehow for whatever reason. Also you cant get cant get full 5K resolution also with Windows on iMac. Ignore the gaming reference in the title
  5. Even RED is now loosing numbers of their enthusiast, latest development with prices moving to the segment of way more expensive Alexa galaxy. Lots of Redfans is not interested in another hype upgrade only to get same old sensor with half stop of DR more, need to buy all new expensive modules, batteries and memory cards again. Only plus is that ProRes on board, but for what price. RED made lots of money on their enthusiasts and now is shifting away to the top pro level category. Here you have that damned ProRes, but you have to pay way more. Btw Canon is also manufacturer of 4K displays
  6. There is way less guinea pigs than used to be couple years back, even with big manufacturers like Red, BM, etc. Lots of ppl is rather waiting for 2nd generation products. Kickstarter is special teritory itself.
  7. He he Im rather in The Art of not upgrading to early Still using my 400D, GH2, iPhone 4 and 15 years old CRT Sony flat G400 monitor recenty bought my first Nizo and Canon Super 8 :))))
  8. So Samsung is giving us their own SML = Samsung Magic Lantern space? Yes big "THANK TO YOU MAGIC LANTERN!" and all the other wonderfull camera hacking comunities. Hope this attitude will last at Samsung team and some marketing big head will not cripple it sooner or later.
  9. Maybe they can make floating price like on the stock, the more interest they got, the bigger price you will pay.
  10. Also pacing was too quick. I still cant recognize what they want to show at certain posts even if I stop the video... :) But even if it is not executed and directed very well and it really sound like New Order too much I still enjoy it.
  11. When is all picture so shaking that it kills my eyes its not about pixel peeping its just messed up. Maybe when you are watching it on some small screen or laptop you dont care, but on the 40" TV its unacceptable. Watching optical illusions on horribly shaky video doesnt work.
  12. Oh no, I dont consider this Driftwoods thing to be worth to promote GH4. I didnt mean it that way.
  13. Lol, higher bitrates help to keep tiny and quickly moving details to fall apart and makes huge macrobloks smaler. For testing it turn your camera to the runnig stream or water with zillions of small waves and you will see how is your bitrate keeping details. Then when you touch curves and color correction you will see how it keep together. Moving grass, branches with lots leaves in strong wind. Fur, hair, detailed structured surfaces etc
  14. When the new camera is coming Im always again and again surprised what a turd footage is used by manufacturers to promote it. Mostly from people I never heard of, or which I consider partly just like hyped camera noobs or just nothing exceptional. After a camera is in the wild everybody is waiting for that one and only piece of short vimeo footage which actually cut it and show us real potencial or real flaws of camera and sell it to us or not. Thats funny to watch it. :) And most funny thing is that creators of this gems are never hired to promote another models :D What a band of ingnorants these marketing people are :P
  15. Its complete disaster for Hollywood. Watching big feathered chick instead of cold skin reptail hunting you on screen is not scary anymore :) Btw T-rexes couldnt be predators because they were so slow to chatch anything. They couldnt generate enought speed. They were only slow scavengers. :)
  16. Again, you must know what are you searching for and how to measure it. Its important how sensitive you Geiger is, how big sensor you are using, when it was calibrated, how big is the background radiation at your Sushi bar, etc etc. Sometimes you end with that, that you find other unxpected local sources of radiation, like people runing with beeping Geigers on the Pacific coast who are maybe measuring radiation which is coming from local US radioactive waste or poluttion dumped in to the sea rather than that one which really came from Fukushima. ;) Its like making camera shootouts, everybody loves it but almost nobody is doing it properly, so they rather say it ways quick and dirty test and result is pretty lame useless as usual. Btw Fukushima disaster is aproximately 100x scale of what hapened in Chernobyl! And they are still continuously dumping radiaoctive water in to the Pacific ocean since then for years. For many people its just old news which happened 3 years ago so they dont care of it anymore, but it didnt stopped its still actual. At Chernobyl they closed sarcofag and somehow locked the problem, but in Japan they dont know what to do with it and are still pouring waste to the nature. Only what we hear from them is all that PR bullsh*t that it will be ok. Most ridiculous thing is that the solution for tsunami is just to move around 20 meters of elevation up to the hill and you can watch tsunami disaster safely from your windows. Its that simple. This was first thing which came to my mind when I was watching videos from Japan how people are runing up to the hills to safe their life and then safely videoing all that hell under them. It was really just few elevation meters betwen life and death, between disaster and safe life. How that nation which gave tsunami word to the world and had to deal with this disaster for centuries can be so dumb and dont setle just few meters up away from it???? No, they are just watching it first hand and then go back down bury their relatives, repair their homes and infrastructure just to wait for another disaster?!?!? I simply dont get it. Good luck than its your life your choice :( But if they built Nuclear plant just by the ocean, its not their local problem anymore its problem of us all dammit! Very same with people who lives at tornado alley. Its like living on the route where giants walk. I really dont like to wait for another emotive and scarry TV news. Just few meters ... Tsunamis can happen anywhere in the world. I mean on any coast. And they happened in history, there are proofs in Orengon, France etc. Biggest one is just waiting for whole east coast of US, just when the half of old volcano mountain on Canary Islands slips in to the ocean. It can happen now, tommorrow or after 100 years nobody knows.
  17. Worst thing when speaking about radiaoctivity and health hazards is making any fun of it and detract it. This topic is complicated and really few understand it fully so its natural that people easily jump on any rumors and tend to start panicking immediately. But that is not their fault. So instead of getting angry and act like dumb its better to explain everything and make it clear what its really dangerous and whats not and under which conditions. Its same like with filming and cameras, you have a lot to learn to fully understand whats going on, except that you work with visible part of spectrum. Btw Thanks to continuous Fukushima disaster, hot topic is now Pacific sea food, tuna fish etc. Who is still eating Pacific catch? It may have low radiation and you can stop it by piece of paper, but if you eat it, it will stay in you and you will be exposed to the low emissions for the very long time, probably rest of your life, and that can be pretty serious. Cumulative radiation is harmfull. Some company started to make camera sensors which can see radioactivity together with visible light http://japandailypress.com/mitsubishi-creates-camera-that-can-see-radiation-goes-on-sale-in-feb-1618531/ Btw if you have smoke detectors in your home or an office some of them contain radioactive Americium and you are sitting, sleeping, eating and working under it all the day long. ;) Better to buy optical ones. http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/non-power-nuclear-applications/radioisotopes/smoke-detectors-and-americium/
  18. When was 96fps dumped? I cant find it europe specifications.
  19. What 4:2:2 YCbCr 4K video output from A7s is only 8bit? http://www.sony.net/Products/di/en-us/products/vq5f/index.html
