    Mad Mike case

    Are you really that shocked there are people who believe in a flat earth, considering all of the other ludicrous things people believe? We're humans, we're fallible, our brains look for patterns and connections that may not actually exist. We've always been this way and we always will be. Why would he, or anyone for that matter, be forbidden to launch a rocket (assuming all of the legal aspects had been taken care of)? I'm not sure if you're asking seriously but who would be the arbiter for allowing or forbidding freedom of thinking? Seems to be a slippery slope to me... It appears this man was very much a proponent of questioning the world around you; what's wrong with that? Did he take it too far? Probably. "It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.” (Carl Sagan) I'm just disappointed he wasn't able to successfully launch the rocket and see for himself that the earth is, indeed, spherical.
  2. https://***URL removed***/news/3598229881/nasa-astronaut-drew-feustel-explains-how-he-captured-racetrack-images-from-space It seems the NASA astronauts use whatever tool is best for the job or maybe just whatever they prefer. Hmm, what a concept!
  3. Has anyone seen Ken Rockwell's RP review? https://kenrockwell.com/canon/eos-r/rp.htm Interesting to note: 4k has ALL-I (480 Mbps) or IPB (120 Mbps). IPB only for 1080p. Canon Log internal?? Uncompressed 4K UHD 4:2:2 10- or 8-bit HDMI output with Canon Log. Neutral (Rec. 709 or Rec. 2020) and Cinema EOS Original (Rec. 709) color matrices. Am I reading this correctly? His reviews are extremely in-depth I can't imagine these are oversights.
  4. Maybe because those that have bought and used the NX1 haven’t been able to find another aps-c sized camera that compares to the colors, usability, autofocus, ergonomics, specs, experience, etc. since Samsung abandoned their camera division. The XT-3 would be, to those people, the camera that comes close to/bests the NX1 and they would like to discuss it in this thread.
  5. Yeah, how dare people discuss their personal experiences with cameras and compare them. What do they think this is a camera forum or something??
  6. This thread should be closed immediately. This place is here to discuss affordable mirrorless cameras and DSLRs. This is just a dull work tool and it has no place on an artistic film-making forum.
  7. https://www.canonrumors.com/canon-rf-lens-specifications/ 95mm filter diameter on that 28-70 f2 ?
  8. Get the vertical battery grip and an extra battery
  9. https://www.simmodlens.com/product-page/simmod-77mm-variable-neutral-density-0-4-0-8-filter Hard stops and controllable polarization.
  10. has anyone tried this from GenusTech? It combines VND and polarizer. I wonder if it would alleviate any issues with skin and natural reflections.
  11. Look at his/her post history. It doesn't seem human.

    @jonpais He complimented you ("Great images as always") then made an observation about the model not looking natural, which she doesn't. Why are you taking it so personally?
  13. What lynch mob are you guys referring to? I saw people ask for evidence of a claim, which is reasonable, I saw one person act like a jerk, and I saw a few people do some detective work to pretty much show the claims made were most likely false. Now this “kid” is running away because of the way he was supposedly treated? How can I be impatient if I’m not waiting for anything? I’m simply making an observation. I do, however, enjoy watching all the virtue signaling of “guys he’s just a kid take it easy on him, goooosh”. He’s got a long road in front of him if he can’t handle a few people on the internet being rude. That is, if he is even a “kid.” It’s not rude to be skeptical on the internet when pretty much everyone is anonymous. I also enjoyed your generalization of New Yorkers. Very tolerant and liberal of you. The story never ends.
  14. How dare people require evidence of extraordinary claims being made! ? Sorry, folks, I believe you've been conned.
  15. @Matthew HartmanWhat is the "FLAT" profile? Is this straight from the camera?
  16. Great captures and colors! Did you do anything in post to achieve those colors or are these SOOC? What picture profile did you use? Thanks in advance
  17. I've always used Rocky Mountain Movie Converter to convert my NX1 h.265 files to ProRes. Here is an informative thread on Edit Ready: Other people reported losing highlight/shadow detail. I think it has something to do with 16-235 vs 0-255. I haven't checked that thread in a while but I think I remember Andrew recommending reducing the contrast slider or something to bring the detail back. Good luck! Mick
  18. Maybe in about 200 years or so KSA will stop flogging women for leaving the house without a male guardian or jailing bloggers or start letting women make their own decisions without a males approval or stop the mandatory covering of the head and body when women leave the house. Maybe.

  20. Care to share these statistics? You're making pretty large, broad, and definite claims about a woman's life that you don't even know. Has every woman that has ever lived faced discrimination? What about men? Do they not face discrimination, too? You seem very sure of yourself that there is "institutional" sexism or discrimination going on. Again, do you have any evidence? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying sexism and discrimination don't exist. I just think blanketing the whole thing as institutional solves nothing and helps no one. If there are certain, specific instances of discrimination let's fight them because it is wrong. I don't think companies as a whole are purposely discriminating against women. If they were, women would not be in high positions, which they are. It sounds to me like you're the one in fantasy land. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Not sure what Trump has to do with anything we're discussing here. Seems like low-hanging fruit. Also, not sure what "gender fanboy mechanism" is. I think the arguments you're receiving are logic and reason based, instead of emotional and virtue signaling.

    Game of Egos

    I would recommend listening to this podcast episode (and all of Sam's episodes) about objective truth (Sam) vs. moral truth (Peterson).
  22. So Nikon did invite female photographers but none of them accepted. How is this sexism, again? Even if Nikon did have some female photographers for the D850, would people complain that there weren't enough of them? Would Nikon have to have an equal amount of female and male photographers for people not to complain? Would they need to have more females than males? Why does it even matter? I think attributing to Nikon that "they think it's too much for women to handle" is incredibly dishonest. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Identity politics is a zero-sum game. Don't play it. Now in the future Nikon will feel forced to include female photographers for the sake of not being chastised. What if they choose female photographers that don't have as good of work as some male photographers that they wanted originally but they feel the need to choose them just because they're female? Why didn't Nikon have any non binary, transgender, or genderqueer photographers? I'm offended!
