  1. Again Andrew you don't know anything about our election system. And these throw away statements are offensive. That simply is not the way things work in my country. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/zorn/ct-polling-ignorance-facts-trump-zorn-perspec-0106-md-20170105-column.html I assure you PC culture is not why elections go a certain way in my country. What the FACTS are are often irrelevant. Often times it doesn't matter what you do or what you say. The voter will vote a particular way for reasons completely beyond your control... like say the color of your skin or
  2. It's not a novel. It's called reality. If you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen. I have clients from all walks of life. Some are Trump voters and some are Hillary supporters. I can't just go around the internet posting Trump supporters are idiots, or Hillary supporters are babies. No one will organize a boycott of my business or picket my offices. But I will quietly lose contracts. 99% of businesses know this. That's why when a business attacks Trump or Hillary or one of their voters they make the news. Most business owners know they service a diverse population and strive
  3. We have a Constitution in the United States and it explicitly says you have all the freedom in the world till you start impinging on other people's rights. We also have something called property rights in the United States. Disney is free to determine who can work with one of their properties. If your behavior does not comport with Disney's code of conduct they have every legal right to tell you to take a hike. Gunn has every right to open a studio and make whatever movies he wants. He can even make porn movies with borderline simulated rape scenes if that is what really makes
  4. I never said Trump. I said "Trump supporters". There is a difference. I think there is something clinically wrong with Trump. I don't think there is something clinically wrong with everyone who voted for him. You could run an old shoe on the Democratic or Republican ticket and get close to 40% of the votes. That's just the way it works. Our elections are about 10-15% of the population at most. If you have a positive opinion of something that is a form of endorsement. Really if you have to try and split hairs that fine you may want to question your opinion. As other post
  5. Sorry. It's been common knowledge for over half a decade. You'll just have to google around if you want to see the myriad of posts concerning the matter. I certainly was not the originator of the story. Unlike you I am not 1000% certain about everything I post. Years ago the online forum consensus was there was something funky with their supply chain. What the specific issue was is really irrelevant. Fill in whatever reason makes you happy. The fact was a decent number of customers were not getting advertised speeds and they had to buy and exchange. That's the main take home message.
  6. Lol. That was genuinely funny. https://www.cnet.com/news/pentagon-reportedly-bans-sale-of-huawei-and-zte-phones-on-us-military-bases/ https://www.theverge.com/2018/1/14/16890110/new-bill-ban-huawei-zte-phones-tech-congress-mike-conaway-cybersecurity https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/09/business/att-huawei-mate-smartphone.html https://www.reuters.com/article/us-australia-china-huawei-tech/australia-prepares-to-ban-huawei-from-5g-project-over-security-fears-idUSKBN1K111O I left facebook years ago. I never bothered with twitter, instagram, or any of the
  7. Kind of like how you and Andrew didn't read the sentence that clearly states it is the Trump supporters you guys are beatifying that led the online attack that took down Gunn?
  8. Cool. Just didn't want people to have the wonderful experience they had with the BMPCC and the microHDMI port. The little handheld demonstration they did with the BMPCC 4k USB C port is definitely going to result in some broken hearts down the road. The problem is there are significant speed differences with other brands and models. Only time will tell how low you can go. Are you aware of Komputerbay's business model? I haven't kept up with them for the last couple of years. I am looking right at a Komputerbay Compactflash card I bought for my 50D raw mag
  9. I think this blog needs to stay away from this topic. The camera information seems to be pretty on point most of the time. That's why I come here. Unfortunately the rest of the "reporting" tends to lose the plot right out of the gates. It is basically fake news. There are so many factual innaccuracies and omissions it basically makes the reader go on google and do all the journalistic research to find out what the true story is. Trump supporters are the "hysterical" people who started this attack on James Gunn. I mean if you like Trump that is your choice. But nothing about this
  10. I would touch that USB C port as little as humanly possible. No way I would routinely plug it in to my computer just for downloading content. A Sandisk CFast 2 card reader costs less than the sales tax on a 256 GB Cfast 2 card. What are we really trying to accomplish here? If someone doesn't have $50 they should stay far away from the Cfast 2.0 game.
  11. Your confidence never ceases to amaze me.
  12. Not looking to blame anyone least of all Blackmagic. Just illustrating for people some thought, care, and patience is advised. If people went into these things with a bit more patience and real world information there would be a lot less noise on the forums from people complaining about this and that. We asked for a high performance machine and Blackmagic has delivered again and again. But it is a high performance machine and needs to be respected. No sense rushing in and then posting complaints all over the internet. Cool. I'm not dropping hundreds of dollars on unreviewed
  13. I respectfully disagree. Tons of manufactures were using SD cards to record pictures and video internally for years before Blackmagic got into the game. Blackmagic merely wanted to write data at a higher volume than most. No one that I know of is using USB C drives to record raw externally straight from the camera. It is a completely novel approach unlike SD cards when the BMPCC was announced. I can't understand how you can be so confident about something we have never seen in the wild. I hope it works as advertised and it is something I definitely want to pick up in the future if it
  14. Anyone can say anything in their marketing materials. I've bought enough tech that has had enough quirks that I know only real world usage will reveal all the issues. I guess you weren't around for all the trial and error with the original BMPCC and SD cards?
  15. It is a pretty shocking set up. Laptops of any kind are just not ideal for 4k grading and editing. And the Mac thing is just ridiculous. I prefer a simple clean black box under my desk with all drives, graphics cards, and various other cards tucked neatly away in one package. Having a wire jungle on my desk with several boxes is not elegant.
  16. You will have to look at benchmarks. The Samsung T5 SSD is one of the fastest portable USB C 3.1 drives out there. It is definitely faster than several competitors. I don't know how it compares to that Sandisk. As far as I know recording raw to USB C is a novel feature. I would wait until the camera is out and the feature is tested by multiple sources before making any plans.
  17. This thread was far more on topic than 90% of forum threads. I wish you luck on your quest for purity on the internet. This thread was an interesting exercise. I'm a BMPCC man myself and I am planning on getting a BMPCC 4k once some reviews are out. But I had to really think about what I would use as a one man band on a paying job with fast turn around. Honestly I thought the thread went well.
  18. I was on there years ago and said very little. And I certainly didn't say anything political or about values. I have to many friends from across the political spectrum to post that kind of thing on a personal page. It would definitely offend someone. That is true. I guess I just don't know young people like that. If anyone were to expose themselves, take a picture of it, and then post it on social media they wouldn't get very far where I work. It is somewhat selective. What I have seen is people blurting out stuff and not realizing times have changed. I've been caught off g
  19. I think it is a generational thing. 10-20 years from now there is a good chance Facebook will be gone or just something for AARP members and businesses. I quit Facebook years ago. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5481591/Millennials-quitting-Facebook-say-goodbye-Snapchat.html I think it is only old people (ie 30+) that have issues with social media. The Olds don't understand the tech and get themselves in trouble with it. Personally I don't have any social media accounts and given recent *cough* events *cough* I have stopped emailing anything other than very
  20. You are literally quoting a post that mentions APS-C sensor size, native EF lens support, and DPAF. GH5/5s is a fine camera. It has its uses but it is way different from a C100. Do you ever wonder why so many rental shops and pros have C100s and not anywhere as many GH5/5s? Why do you think people are willing to pay more to rent the C100 than the GH5s? People can have their preferences but to say the only difference is lack of ND on the GH5/5s is a heck of an exaggeration.
  21. The government spends millions of dollars to house toddlers they have illegally taken from asylum seekers but they won't go after this crook? Anyway thanks for posting. Good information.
  22. GH5s is a totally different camera. Personally I see plenty of situations where I would go with the C100 mk II over a GH5s. They are both nice cameras but I see each having strengths in different scenario. C100 mk II's APS-C sensor, DPAF, and native use of EF lenses to name a few make it a natural over the GH5s for certain jobs. Also what is the low light comparison between the two?
  23. As much as I like video it is overused. I much prefer to read a lot of things vs watching a video. As people have said sometimes you don't have the time or you need to be quiet or silent. It is also easier to understand complex topics if you can read an in depth article. You can reread sentences if you don't get it on a first pass. Also it is easier to find something in an article if you have to look it up at a later date. Certain tutorials are better in video and I do enjoy watching well done video reviews. But I always supplement video reviews with plenty of articles.
