  1. I had moved on - m43 was more than enough for my amateur needs, but as an amateur (aka my gear do not bring me income), I could not have the luxury to sit on a inventory of 2 bodies, 10 lenses, 2 speedboosters, etc if m43 dies. And here in Brazil the exchange rate is soaring and now a lot of gear that I have could be sold with the same price (and sometimes above) that what I've paid, which is uncommon. Hence, selling all my m43 gear, gone to Fuji. Second lesson - buying everything used, in good condition (all my m43 gear was bought new). Already got an X-T20 (with the intention to t
  2. In m43 realm, yes, I think that they will release the GH6, maybe a G9 sucessor, and probably will leave - or making just specialized gear like the BGH1. In full frame, really don't know.
  3. The problem with only adding cores is that they are only useful if your software could use all of them. Massive parallelism is very difficult to obtain.
  4. For tinfoil hat speech, I have another video forum to suggest to you...
  5. Yep. But already got the 18-55 f/2.8-4 with the XT-20, then the zoom question is settled. Great little lens, must say. Liking the Fuji experience, until now.
  6. Any one ever saw a iPhone teardown? It is a battery, a tiny mainboard, two or 3 camera modules, screen module and some connectors. The BOM cost for this in the iPhone 12 Pro is US$406 (https://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_12_pro_bom_come_up_to_406-news-46442.php), probably much less, since Apple could get massive discounts buying it in bunch. Let's say it goes to US$300. Almost no mechanical adjustments needed, the assembly might be very cheap. Easily the profit is around 300% per unit. Now get a Nikon camera, see the immense complexity of it, the much higher price of a much bi
  7. Same question, specially in video AF. Saw some problems but they released a firmware upgrade to solve them. (just ordered the 85mm 1.8)
  8. Looks like will be available here in mid-December. Hence, 1 month to try a Fuji to get around to see if it fits my needs... Than I saw a used X-T20 with the 18-55 f/2.8-4, 6 batteries (2 original), external grip and flash for about the US used price (for Brazil prices, kind of a bargain) and ordered it. An X-T30 would be better, but used units are very rare and a new body would cost 30% more than the whole kit above. Since my doubs are more in usability terms, photo IQ is very similar with the last Fujis, and video is a little bit worse (4k line skipped, but I liked the samples that
  9. Well, camera is on stock now, looks like the preorders are arriving. Anyone here got one?
  10. H265 is decoded in hardware, but probably the editor that you use must support it, as usual. Since you use FCPX, and (AFAIK) it already have a native version for the M1 chip, probably will work very well. I agree with Andrew - if you really need it ASAP, order a 16gb Mini, get the heaviest job that you've done in FCPX with H265, and try for yourself, monitoring RAM usage. If it chokes, return the computer.
  11. HUGE media blitz with glowing reviews...remember me the launches of certain images devices that we are used here... Looks like the new Macs are really good, but if I was looking to buy one, would wait until some real world users put it to their paces (and maybe the Rosetta caches becomes full). The 16Gb ram (not expandable) max and the restriction of having only one external monitor could be deal breakers to some video editing setups. (and with the "Apple dollar" here in Brazil, you could buy a top last gen Ryzen with 32 gb ram, top video card and 2TB SSD with the local price
  12. Waiting for our sound specialist @IronFilm to give his remarks. But really, no audio level monitoring needed? "Clipped audio could be recovered", is it real? (my interest is for record concert audio, high SPLs)
  13. The Air probably will throttle a lot more because of cooling. In fact, cooling are a problem for a lot of Mac laptops lately... Promising news, but I really would wait for some REAL world tests - as in cameras, first will be the paid reviews...
