  1. Blind Test - Which colors do you prefer?

    I chose A, at least a couple of us know what's really going on eh?
  2. New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    This came out today. http://www.techspot.com/bestof/cpu/
  3. New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    The Ryzen 1700 is supposed to run at variable speeds, from 3.0 up to 3.7mhz. Mine runs comfortably at 3.9 @ 1.3375v but I've set it to 3.8 which is all I need.
  4. New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    I got the same mobo and memory but have the msi 1070 videocard!
  5. New Ryzen 8 core 16 thread CPU

    Just bought an AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU @ 3000mhz and a cheap msi am4 mobo + 32gig ddr4. It's the new way cheap 8 core chip and it edits 4k like a charm no more stutters, super smooth. My old i5 was terrible. Anyway if you haven't heard look up the Ryzen CPU's they're a bargain 8 Core (16 threads) and a no brainer esp. for editing needing to upgrade. Even with an 8gig 1070 videocard my i5 2500k didn't like 4k at all. btw I bought the Ryzen 1700 because it's the cheaper cpu and it overclocks easily to 3.9mhz with stock cooler with no fuss.
  6. 5K RAW video on the Olympus E-M1 II usable for short clips!

    The colours look amazing and it looks really filmic too or maybe that was the lens? This is 10 bit or 12?
  7. Bang for Buck 4K monitor/recorder?

    What is the cheapest or bang for buck 4k monitor/recorder out there atm? Anyone looked into this?
  8. Opinion - DXOMark's camera scoring makes ZERO sense!

    Tony Northrup who is a Programmer/Science background has plenty to say about DX0 ranking system. Color Rendition is based on how they feel about it apparently ie not any objective data etc. He said the same, DX0 ranking is deeply flawed from a technical standpoint!
  9. Biggest clusterfuck of 2016

    $2,000 or more China built lenses, PPL swoon over them. morons!
  10. Panasonic GH5 - all is revealed!

    A bit OT but how does it rate as a Stills Camera? How is the AF?
  11. Are Canon EF lenses still a good investment?

    Really? Maybe you're the one who is absolute rubbish? Forward to 7:10m. Noticed how Tony actually phoned Sigma to get a fix but it's focusing back then forward so the usb isn't going to fix that because its a random problem. And he asked his Canon friends if they had the problem and they have it also! Means it's total lemon! At least the 18 -35mm can focus consistently with centrepoint or that would be a write off too!! Here's the 18 -35 focus problem. there's a few more but I can't be bothered finding them. I can live with centrepoint only focus for stills, I shoot stills that way anyway. Notice he had to retest because his friends had this problem also but he didn't find it first time he tried!! ie it's a design flaw and it's not fixed by the usb dock! You've got to wonder why Sigma issued a usb dock to correct focus issues in the first place right? No other manufacturers do as far as I'm aware, they just sell lenses that focus and work? And I'm not a Sigma hater I have 5 sigma lenses which I use all the time!
  12. Are Canon EF lenses still a good investment?

    Yes said something similar in previous posts, for video of PPL in room etc its great.
  13. Are Canon EF lenses still a good investment?

    If you own a 18 -35mm you would know it doesn't focus well using the outside points, you have to use the centrepoint, it's common knowledge flaw for pro photographers? I guess you guys don't own one or are used to having blurry pictures? Similar problem with the 50 -100mm 1.8, it doesn't focus consistently, it's kinda all over the net, maybe we don't watch the same reviews? It's kinda useless if it keeps randomly missing and your shooting an event? ps. it doesn't matter how many ppl you get to agree with you, facts aren't determined by votes!
  14. Are Canon EF lenses still a good investment?

    Ignorance is bliss....lol
  15. Are Canon EF lenses still a good investment?

    This is common knowledge now actually. If you focus on a large tree from a distance to frame the tree, none of leaves will be in focus and at any aperture. You will think the leaves are moving but even when you increase the shutter speed same result, garbled leaves. It's chromatic aberration, a design flaw due to the 14 elements etc. There's a few videos on this on youtube but I can't find them right now. Plus the 18-35 won't focus using the outer focus points, you have to use centrepoint only. The Lens is complete junk unless you use centrepoint focus only. The new 50-150 1.8 they just released is even worse, it just doesn't focus every 5 or 6 shots or whatever, which means unusable for a professional stills photographer. Totally unreliable auto focus. The Zeiss and the Fuji are not 3rd Party and are great lenses no doubt and cost a bomb, not sure your point?? The new chinese$2K Nikon 85mm has a similar issue to the 18 -35 due to all the elements, stick with the old one much better Lens and half the price.
