    question about doorbell.

    Ooh and they're doing a giveaway too!😁

    question about doorbell.

    Well, first I need a little more details on the door itself. Does it adhere to the 180 degree shutter rule? And... I actually prefer a silent shutter, does it support it? If not currently, probably nothing that WD40 won't fix. Does the door already have a rangefinder to see what's going on out there? All I know is, keep the shutter closed if you don't want to have anyone peeking in. And you've got to figure out your letterbox situation too. I know this topic can be polarizing.

    What Do Y'all Think of The Kinefinity Mavo LF?

    I think it would be a great upgrade from your (albeit amazing of course) T2i.

    2 Things I'd like to discuss

    Yes! Zach resurrected! 😄 Those were the good ol' days (except for that certain Egyptian scammer), things have gotten a bit rotten and turned into drama I feel like lately. We could use some of that oldschool community back (a lot either got banned or decided to stay away on their own). What ever happened with that one exotic lens?

    EOS R does NOT lack sharpness in 4K - Here's proof

    Yeah doesn't look too bad. Here neither: Not too say I would rush out and get one ASAP. Gotta wait it out until the next model launches... and maybe even then... Panasonic might have the upperhand with the S1(R). Although, admittedly, currently I'm not really in the market for a FF system and still plenty happy with what MFT offers and has the potential of.
  7. Yeah, it's the adapter and the electronic connector. Try to see if there's a firmware update you can play onto the adapter. Alternatively try and put some tape or something over the connector, should sort you out. ('Shoot without lens' hasn't carried over from the GH4, instead it's standard).

    Andrew will have some profiles to fix that like the Sonys, I'm sure.

    Bit random what they've done with it, but atleast it's interesting to see what can be done with the footage. Certainly looks alright to me.

    Isn't it Sigma that created some of Olympuses optical formulas for them? I like Sigma. They've always claimed ART is for the best quality. Size and price on the backburner. Hence they have the Contemporary line-up as well. Those were supposed to strike a better balance between the three. Though, given, they haven't been doing much of those... and those that have come out... were actually pretty dang huge, lol. Don't think Lumix lenses ever looked... amazing. Especially in the GH2 days lenses like the 14-140mm and 20mm f/1.7 were popular. They were relatively compact, flexible and well-priced. But they had a very poppy modern character. Contrasty, sharp, but a bit stale at the same time as well. They did a good job, don't get me wrong, but they sorta lacked an organic vibe. It's like Samsung smartphone displays and their too vibrant respresentation of things. Think the new generation looks better. Think it was around the time the 42.5mm f/1.7 OIS and 30mm f/2.8 Macro were introduced. Quite like their looks. Have a bit more character. Of course it gets more interesting with the Leica glass. But... I guess you pay for what you get. Think Olympus PRO is still more of precision tools. Not too much of that 'ooooh look at that character, it's so legendary, ooh it has the Leica badging (but a Lumix lens cap)', just good lenses that sorta speak for themselves. It's no secret that I love their AF/MF solution with the de-clutch. That should be on every lens out there. Yeah, Olympus is doing very well out there. Not sure where the L-mount partnership is going, but I think it's an interesting team-up. Not actually the greatest fan of the mount. It's being surpassed by the E- and Z-mounts in terms of potential and flexibility. And great that there's an existing lens line-up, but... I was hoping more of a fullframe Lumix-like system, rather than a premium boutique-style one where everything is big, fluffed up and expensive. But... too soon to judge. Still having a blast with MFT and the strides they've made post-GH4 is admirable. Think there's plenty of future for me there... especially if one considers massive size and weight a downer, then that's a system that's got you covered with plenty of options to keep that in check.

    Has anyone actually ever used a SLR Magic MicroPrime for E-mount? Think I got the memo these were a thing a few months ago, but kinda forgot about it. Haven't really seen anybody talking or making videos about 'em. They seem rather interesting. With most priced at 799 USD (with a huge mark-up on the European market apparently), they make an interesting set to compete with the likes of Veydra, XEEN/Samyang and Sigma CINE.

    Nah, he should've just send them a kind e-mail stating his case and being a little perplexed, I bet they would've replied with something along the lines of 'sorry you feel that way, we really don't mean any disrespect, we appreciate what you're doing here. Let us just see if we can get you one early still, how does that sound?'... but he didn't even give them that oppertunity. I think he might just assume the very worst out of them and out of me. Unwarranted so. Anyways. Much fuzz over nothing. I'm outta here. Gotta finish up that Jack Ryan! Don't forget to have some fun, people.

    I don't know... it's like getting pissed at a faint acquaintance that didn't write 'happy birthday' on my FB timeline when I never congratulated them either. But again, that's just me. Sorry you're seeing all of that differently.
