  1. 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
  2. Steve Huff published some samples, had not looked at it yet.
  3. Well, looks like that the camera will be released tomorrow. 60 mp sensor, PDAF, price $2499.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Looks like that the control scheme is much more D850ish oriented.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. The new lens is not in Camerasize yet, but even with the bigger Sigma 24-70, the size difference is not so much: https://j.mp/2NGzUFd
  14. I'm one of the amateurs here; my job is TI, government company. Very, very lucky in the financial side - moved to home office since March 2020 (a thing that I would want even without Covid - ZERO needs to waste 1h30 commuting every day, and have more resources, like better monitors, than in my workplace), no income cutting, could stay safe. Work exploded in pressure though - our team take care of two systems, one that demanded 95% of the work (10 people in the team), the other make a statistical report and basically ran once a year. But this 5% system became used as the database of t
  15. I agree with you. But since one of the full frame users preferences over smaller formats is that is easier to work with wide angle shots, it is an important factor.
  16. Olympus said that their 6 stop IBIS is hard to improve because of the Earth rotation...I guess that when you power up this Canon the planet will go backwards (hope that prices too).
  17. I've gone to Fuji - but, remember, I'm an amateur. But in the midrange bodies, comparing the X-S10 to the E-M10 MKIII and GX9 (the bodies that I have), the Fuji is vastly superior. Miles better video AF, great colors, and when I saw that you can punch-in focus during recording (one thing that I've ALWAYS wanted)...
  18. Well, Panasonic was working on something: https://www.theverge.com/2021/2/18/22289331/panasonic-farting-cat-robot
  19. In fact, I was in a Zoom Fuji meeting yesterday (the subject was the X-S10) and they said that Boost mode must be used only with static shots - it is designed to be tripod-steady. If you do some pans or movements, the Boost mode will "fight" and have jerky behaviour.
  20. No "Steadyshot" label on any photos until now - and considering that the rest of the line and the C70 did not have it either, my bets are no IBIS. But the C70 have internal ND...
  21. SAR said just now that the price will be 3795 Euro (from a purported ad in a kit with a 80Gb CFExpress A or a 128gb Tough SDXC card - which could mean a double format type slots). And said that it records 4k120p and NOT 8k - which could means A7SIII sensor.
  22. Well, gyro stabilization comes with a huge crop - problematic with wide angle shots.
