    I worry this will come off the wrong way and offend you, but I feel like you take things too personally and that creates stress for you. Your passion is one of the things that drew me to the site to begin with, but I think it also creates unnecessary stress for you. If shuttering this board helps, by all means, shutter it, but will it really have an impact on the anger you feel and your overall disappointment with the direction the broader community is heading in? 
    I speak from experience, so please don't take this as an insult, but for your own sake you need to focus on you and the things you can change/do. Stop worrying about YouTubers, DPReview, etc. Because you can't control what they do. Embrace the positives, and do what you've always done best.
    I hope you reconsider closing this board but you gotta do what you gotta do. And if I have ever been a problem on here, I'm sorry.

    Respectfully Andrew,
    I’ve been think of writing this post for a while now but I thought it would only get me banned… I tried to open a debate about gears a few months ago but the thread was locked right away
    No hard feelings thought, this is your forum.
    To be honest, I regret this decision to close this forum, the unique place where I was coming online to talk to over filmmakers and bring support to strangers. Unlike other forums and FB groups, EOSHD is a special place, a small community of enthusiasts and pros willing to talk in a civilized manner. Of course this changed a lot recently, we lost several familiar faces and I must admit that you’ve been also pushing this place in a new direction. While I used to enjoy your previous David versus Goliath rants, this almost turns into a daily basis thing where you find a new person/website/youtube/brand channel to attack or denounce. I must admit that you do so with a lot of valid points most of the time but it just display a lot of negativity.
    Therefore, I can understand why this whole thing makes you angry and drains your energy. And I must not be the only only considering lack the of reactions that these rant posts generate.
    So yes, on some aspects the world is getting crazier and dumber but not worse than it was 50 or 100 years ago (actually there is much less war, violence, famine, and conflict in general).
    Yes, I hate all this narcissistic thing, the dumbing down experience of social networks but there isn’t much we can do at this point… I personally write for several online publications and I always tried to maintain some ethic: no sponsored post, real unbiased product review, and full disclosure of my few links with manufacturers. Anybody can see my posts online.
    But the truth is that the media industry is dying in general, the photo-video is even in worse shape. So some people do what they can to make a living and cross the line regularly because they must pay their rent. I don’t think that the vast majority of tech writers do very well. Then, there are the few Youtuber stars who are just worth ignoring.
    So what can we do now?
    1. Continue to call out people, youtubers, and brands but obviously (and unfortunately) you can’t win this fight.
    2. Channel all this energy toward greater good. I really like the idea of doing guest posts. I would be happy to contribute in some area with honest reviews and in depth articles rather than giving it away for free to well know online publications. For what it’s worth, when I write good entry, people are genuinely interested. Collaboration is key, don't go down in a muddy dogfight with the crooks but rise above them.

    All the best with your endeavors. This forum was a good place. Cheers.

    Over 8 years, a lot of my friends and some great camera people have come and gone on this, the EOSHD Forum.
    I have stuck by it and tried my best to moderate things. However I feel that now the time has come where it is just A) making me extremely angry on a daily basis and B) Making me lose interest in cameras and is demotivating me.
    So it is a big old negative distraction for me on the whole, when I should be focussing on the main blog post and the quality of that.
    So I feel it is time to say goodbye.
    Time to close this place up.
    I will be making all topics private and closing the login feature this weekend, except for those of you who are personal friends and I still need to talk to.
    Then I will take a few weeks to think about the future and what will replace it.
    I am open to the idea of guest blog posts instead from people I trust and who have something to contribute.

    Regarding to Olympus: the best end (with 0% chance of happening) would be Sony buying Olympus.

    They could pull a Panasonic and drop the APS-C line (which never got so much love from Sony after their FF move - the A6xxx is almost the same since 2014). They could port to Olympus their AF tech, better codecs, and finally release a newer m43 sensor with all bells and whistles
     (BSI, stacked, all the tech), like a 24mp unit with Fuji low light performance. An OM-D with good low light, good AF, 4k60p, 10 bit output, with Olympus colors and ergonomics, anyone?

    And Sony could use Olympus knowledge to improve their IBIS and color science, Zuiko expertise in great compact lenses and optics. Or maybe a FF OM-D with E-mount.

    But will not happen. In fact, Sony looks somewhat quiet in these days...

    And here I am, in my early twenties - so I'm technically a millennial / Generation Y - with my my strong preference towards written word.
    I deeply hate the fact that people nowadays tend to turn their blogs into vlogs, etc.
    For me, having to go to YouTube for a piece of information that could be put clearly in two or three sentences is one of the plagues of 21st century.
    I understand that our hobby - cameras and stuff related to them - is a visual hobby and words can't always be used to show what we mean or to share what we managed to create using our babies.
    Nonetheless, I think that over 30% of YouTube content could easily be transcribed and deprived of audio-visual stimuli and we, as viewers, would only gain from it.
    It's just terribly tiring, how much shit, unneeded clutter there is to almost everything.
    You could say that you save your time, because there are no ads per se, but the amount of in-video marketing and advertising, etc. is terrifying.
     
    But still, not every channel is like this and, surely, there are some that are really worth being subscribed to.
    The amount of knowledge that can be found on YT (if you know what you're looking for) is invaluable and often can't be put into words that easily.
     
    It's a tough nut to crack.

    Well there is a possibility that it could do some damage in the pants region if not calibrated correctly.
    But as this will lead to not being able to have kids then the money saved on raising them can be ploughed into buying more lenses etc so its actually a feature rather than a fault for this audience.

    Education ties is a critical key unfortunately missed there... : ( Let's hope enlightenment will flourish.
    I've heard Regina Duarte resigned today. A Minister drops every week... Two (!) Ministers of Health, the Minister of Justice Moro... just in a few weeks, WOW
    Flávio Migliaccio, the Brazilian Jack Lemmon, has just committed suicide : (
    Lima Duarte who I had the luck to personally meet and establish a very friendly connection with, when he shot with a former instructor of mine from film school, he looks like a fishbowl with no water in a different planet he did his best trying to educate, one of the richest promised lands worldwide.
    The official Minister of Education of today and go figure the Foreign Affairs' guy (who almost had the President's son for Ambassador in Washington with US experience based on his gig background selling fast food and without having clue who Kissinger was, as he himself admitted LOL hilarious to say the least) they look like a pair of clowns in a circus straight down from the hell instead.
    So pity all of this and sad to see the mass murder everyday in the news... : -( Mercy for Brazil!

    Already have decided to leave Brazil after the unavoidable recession diminishes (impossible to live in a country where 30% of the population support inconditionally a genocide president that have ties with organized crime), probably someday we will arrange a meeting between these cameras.

    But since I've forgot to sell it when it was pricier, now will keep it, forever probably.

    Second that. The Blade Runner video made me crazy about the GH2, got one barely used at a good price...and with it started my love of photography and video.
    Still have the GH2 here, failed to sell it when it was still valuable...now bought a cheap Viltrox 5 inch monitor to use as focus peaking viewer.

    Most of the videos made it it are garbage, because I did not have good lenses at the time, heheheh. Interesting, some of the concerts stills that I've got with the GH2 now I think that are some of the best that I've taken - and GH2 arguably was not a good low light camera. The pictures from a Bruce Springsteen concert taken with a Can on FD 135mm f/2.5 are the most organic still that I've taken (and remember, no IBIS...).

    Miss you covering cheap gear and extracting the best of it, Andrew.
