  1. Hard to believe that the eye-focus would be precise enough to get a small focus point - the old EOS3 had only 45 af points. More probably (and still very useful) is that the eye could move a large box around the screen to set the focus area to where the AF mode (zone, Eye Af, etc) starts to scan. Or to move between faces in a scene.
  2. If you don't need internal 10-bit, could add the X-S10 in the list. Really liking the camera. Compared to the GX85 / GX9 (I've owned both): better colors (albeit the GX9 have VERY good color), video AF miles better (not 100% precise, but very usable - in the GXs, unusable), ok IBIS (GX85 and GX9 are a bit better), option to punch-in to check focus during recording (one things that ALWAYS wanted in my midrange m43s), great lenses.
  3. Phones are mass consumer products, and the development are driven by consumer focus groups. If these groups prefer photos oversaturated and hypersharpned, you bet that it will be in the final product. Remember the 60fps interpolation that still came standard for a lot of TV sets - for people like us it is atrocious, but MOST of the people that I know think it is "cool" or never even noticed it... Or it is a new kind of programmed obsolence - again, using TV sets as example, now there are some initiatives to "true cinema image"...which marketing will promote as the new cool thing, to
  4. Steve Huff published some samples, had not looked at it yet.
  5. Well, looks like that the camera will be released tomorrow. 60 mp sensor, PDAF, price $2499.
  6. Never dabbled into this area, but AFAIK the full Camera2 API is almost never fully available in most Android devices. Hence a lot of features are only available for the manufacturer apps. Filmic Pro found some ways to circunvent it, but some features even them could unlock - they even have a app just to list the features available in your phone. For exemple, in my Galaxy S9, 4k60 is only available in Samsung's camera app - not even Filmic Pro could past 4k30.
  7. Don't worry, I was really happy for you all. As I said, my work and income was never affected a bit (I work in TI) - all of you, who are real filmmakers, are having a really heavy personal toll. Really want all you guys going back to work ASAP.
  8. Indeed. Just moved from m43 to Fuji, impossible to buy a new cam. But I have a GH2 and an E-P1 in the locker here.
  9. This is the risk: with slow vaccination, here becomes a great playground for the virus mutates itself to a variant that evades vaccines. We became a threat to the world. Forget our government. Our president said last week "when you will stop crying and come back to work?" when we reach the 250000 death mark, refuses to use masks since the beginning, refused to buy vaccines because "this virus is just a flu" and this night his son (a senator) published a video saying "get your masks and shove up your ass" (yes, said EXACTLY that). Our goverment is formed by lunactics. If Langley is he
  10. Menawhile, as predicted, here in Brazil things are escalating quickly. Already in the ballpark of 2300 deaths per day, now we are on top of the ranking. South states are already collapsed - lot of cities with 110% of capacity in the ICU's. Troves of people in the 25-40 years old dying with the P1 variant. Here in São Paulo, the largest and richier city, the health system is target to collapse in 10 days. And still, no very strict lockdown enforced - even with the Araraquara example, the 1st city to collapse, the only one that made a more-or-less lockdown (we never had a REAL lockdown
  11. Looks like that the control scheme is much more D850ish oriented.
  12. Thanks. We will take care (even much more now). In the meantime, one hospital in the south of the country bought refrigerated containers to put the dead bodies - it's morgue is already full. Another south state, Santa Catarina, have 200 people waiting for a ICU bed and 16 died today. Will become worse, here.
  13. Man, I wish that I was there now (my best friend lives in Wellington). Here in Brazil will be probably the most tragical month in the last decades. The Amazon corona variant looks VERY deadly and transmissible - we had the first 200.000 deaths in the first 11 months, and the next 50.000 in...two months. Cities around here with 200.000 to 300.000 people had already collapsed - there are no more ICU units available. Zero. People are starting already dying waiting for a ICU unit. I live in São Paulo, the biggest city here (12 million people), and there are no more ICU units it the
  14. Probably because (as in MFT) Panasonics only works in DFD mode with Panasonic branded lenses - which is an idiotic decision. Maybe in L mount they included the Leicas in the DFD tables.
