  1. Look at the Angeneuix ez2 15-40 T2, for S35, but can be converted to vista and becomes like a 22-60 T3 or something like that. Different price range though.
  2. The reason it gets used so much is simple. If you look at a color wheel orange and teal are complimentary, opposites. And opposite or complimentary colors create high contrast of color, which makes them pop, and adds intensity. Any set or pair of complimentary colors has this affect. Now the reason for orange and teal is because all human skin falls into the orange spectrum, making teal the complimentary. Also orange and blue is used a lot, think Avatar. Regardless of the fact that it is used frequently, these are winning combinations. They pop and add contrast, and therefore intensity. You’ll see this in its extreme in movie posters. It just works. (Though I’m not saying we should always do this.) By the way, the opposite of this is using affinity of color which is using colors from the same spectrum. Like orange on orange. You’ll see this a ton in fashion photography. Ignoring the skin tone, you’ll see red on red, green on green, white on white, and so on. It’s a very intentional use of color.
  3. Does their pro cinema line make money? I can’t see how. That will probably die. Maybe their GH and SH lines survive and they become less protectionist. That would work out even better for us.
  4. Thank God for Blackmagic. Panasonic was my 2nd fav camera company. It would be really sad to see them exit. It’s hard for me to believe the GH5 didn’t profit. Everyone had at least 1 of those. It also seems really foolish for a CEO to say something like that without being clearer. Consumers of even their profitable divisions could get trigger shy and begin leaving. Profitable divisions could start slipping as well.
  5. Will be buying this Thanksgiving weekend.

    RED Komodo

    If Raven is a precursor, one had better be ready to order immediately and it will be months if not years for the rest of us. Maybe they’re working on their production line.

    RED Komodo

    I still can’t figure out what happens to the rest of Reds cameras. This cam does much or most of what they do. And in some ways more. I mean I’m looking forward to it as well but what’s the catch.
  8. I know right. This forum is so bad that I’m going to punish it by NOT leaving it. ?
  9. Except that pushing from my side could result in a loss, in a big way, at least from my perspective. Better to make the best of what I have. I think there is too much emphasis and power at the top, including SCOTUS. I think both sides generally agree. I wish more was being done to protect and empower state and local authority. That is the big waste of all this. That said, here is what I think happened. Mind you, I have no inside info. But I have no doubt. _____ TRUMP’S MIND: My actions and policies have contributed greatly to what’s going on at Apple in Texas. In fact, people will never know what I know about what actually would have happened here if it weren’t for me. TRUMP’S TWEET: I just opened an Apple plant in Texas. TRUMP’S SOCIAL MEDIA STAFF: Mr President, you do realize the left is going to go bananas over your tweet? TRUMP: Yes. _____ Would I have said or done as such? No. But I get it. Would I prefer a more noble approach? Yes. But I get it. Trump does not, has not, and will not EVER receive any credit or praise from the Liberal media, regardless of what he says or does. He could denounce Christianity, embrace the climate crisis fully, and replace Pence with with a gay trans black woman and he’d still be mocked as a bafoon orange orangutan. In his mind he has to overcome this incredibly clear bias. I don’t necessarily agree with his methods, but I get it. I also don’t think he’s a strategist, but his strategy seems to work. Again, I wish things were different, but I get it. You know the following is true. If Trump were to use Andrew’s words and call the Earth round, tomorrow’s headlines would read! “Trump and His Ingoramous Followers are Flat Earthers.” If that happened to you day in and out, how might you begin to respond? What might your tactics become? I know what I wish for, but I get it. So is the earth round? Or a sphere? Or an oblate spheroid? One group would understand any of the above as true. The other will lose their minds over over any. And somehow, and only God knows why, Trump seems to win regardless.
  10. I wish Trump were Reagan. But he’s not.Yet I am soooo glad he’s not Hilary. And here we are.
  11. Jimmy. You nut shelled it buddy. Someone once said of Trump. The right takes Trump seriously, but not literally. The left takes Trump literally, but not seriously. Add to that the fact that it doesn’t matter at all what he says. The liberal media takes everything he says and spins and distorts it. Ironically, the liberal media is behaving just like Trump. Maybe we should take them seriously but not literally. In the end this really comes down to core ideology. We care less about the victor’s vices as long as they lean our direction.
  12. @The ghost of squig @fuzzynormal Come on guys. Clearly the point of my posts were not to say that I am not interested in fruitful engagement. It’s the unfruitful part that I’m suggesting to avoid. That which aggravates. Like Trump tweeting he built an Apple plant in Texas. Who cares? Let it go. This is an easy one. Let the little stuff go. Life’s too short. Of course you won’t let it go though. The left just can’t stop making big out of small. And it works in the favor of the one you hate most. And it’s so obvious what’s going on. And it’s both sad and amusing. And this post will be warped to mean something it doesn’t. And so on...... I’ll just sit back and enjoy my day. Have a good one.
  13. Actually you are wrong. It’s a sphere. Edit. Although your trusted fact site Wikipedia lists it as an oblate spheroid. Point being is you can be right, and wrong all at the same time. Depending on who you ask. Sound like anyone else?
  14. Nope. You were played. Just another distraction from the ridiculous impeachment drama. Any time wasted on this is a win. Or if nothing is said it’s a win too I guess. The thing is that it’s so obvious. I can’t believe it keeps working. I didn’t read much of your post. Any of them for that matter. I don’t need the aggravation. See how easy that is? I’m gonna have a great day. If libs could just do that with Trump it would work wonders. But won’t happen. Anyway. Take care.
  15. Lol. Guess it works for me too. Edit: man I wish I could figure out how to post a gif. I found the perfect one. https://giphy.com/gifs/fiddle-darby-ogill-king-of-the-leprechauns-pTeGp2LU7evMA
  16. Trump plays liberals like a fiddle. Both sad and hilarious at the same time.
  17. Seems like your video was handheld maybe. Was that using ibis? How does the Ibis compare to the GH5?
  18. I posted about this not long ago with a screenshot. Hook is right. This clipping is everywhere.
  19. This is so true. Several years ago I compared my Leica R’s to a Sigma 18-35. The difference in sharpness was striking. I figured that I would just sell my Leica R’s and keep the Sigma since it was faster and sharper and I had all my primes in one lens. But I’ve since learned that it’s not all about sharpness and speed. Our camera resolution and dual iso has bridged that gap. Leica R’s are like adding celluloid to your camera body.
  20. Any news? This camera with Video Assist and braw would be nice.
  21. Fake rumor. Thread locked.... Kidding. Philip Bloom just recently posted how much he loves the GFX 100. He mentioned nothing about rolling shutter which seems to be a caveat with many of these large sensor cams. But you mentioned it could be pretty good so time will tell. As far as hybrids go, the medium/large format are the ones that attract me most. If I were a serious photog that’s what I’d shoot for sure. Pricey though.
  22. I think newer firmware has addressed though, but still good to know. Regardless, some like myself would prefer the LPE6.
  23. I have found and read others experiencing 45-50 minutes. Still not great but better than 20. For some, like myself, more LPE6 is less a hassle than the extra attachments. Yours truly is a good solution though, just not for everyone.
  24. I use the c modes too. But one little change and I have to either re save it or fiddle with that change each time I start up the camera. Either of those options is a hassle for me. As much as I love the camera, and I do love it, I feel like it is working against me. The P4K on the other hand is a pleasure to use.
