  1. Hi Andrew, this is exactly the kind of information people are looking for. Just a clear view on the pros and cons... You see why we don't want you to abandon EOSHD? Keep up the good work!
  2. Andrew, please don't quit! I have learned so much on this blog. I know we live in a thoroughly controlled and commercialised world, and it is frustrating to see the commercial chaps dominate the scene. It is indeed ridiculous that Panasonic doesn't send you a GH5, but it is also understandable and maybe even a compliment! The industry likes smooth guys for reviewing and one could accuse you of all kind of things, but a smooth guy you're not! Therefore it is vital that guys like you and Gordon of Cameralabs and others who share a passion and an independent mind won't give up. Gor
  3. Yes, this is a beautiful camera indeed. A friend of mine has the T1. I like everything about Fuji, except that their lenses are big and expensive... Will wait for the GH5 because of the whole ecosystem. For studio work this is no problem, but I do not go back to bulky systems when outdoors.
  4. It all depends on the way you pursue these offences. If the guy get lynched, you would be right. If he gets a fair chance to defend himself, there is nothing wrong with pursueing him for his offences. Indeed, a society where these offences are being pursued in a fair way is a much better place than a society that does not care.
  5. How can you uphold that his previous incidents are irrelevant to this specific discussion? You seem to be deeply upset by the verb to lie... That seems reasonable enough, but it is petty work compared to the insults done by that chap Clarkson... You rightfully demand to be treated with respect, but you don't mind Clarkson abusing others?
  6. I had high hopes for this camera, but when I learned that it has no EVF I became hesitant. Thanks, Andrew, for showing us all the other deficits. It saves me a lot of time. This camera is too troublesome for 4k video. The LX100 is definitely of more use. My only hope is that Sony will come with a kind of A7000 that does 4k in a good way, but all the rumours so far have turned out to be false...
  7. I was not thinking of royalty, noblemen or any of that sort. They usually were not the spiritual elite I was thinking of. English society was for a very long time known for its sophisticated manners. It may be true that underneath that surface there were a lot of less sophisticated ethics, but nowadays we seem to have the worst of both; thugs all around and no polite cueing at the post office... At the heart of Andrews argument probably lies a kind of resentment towards poitical correctnes, that can be used by powerful bureaucrats to weed out any creativ process that does not comply with the
  8. Maybe no need to quit this site and Andrew's good work. I also don't agree with his tolerance for racist remarks, but there's nothing wrong with a good argument. Having a good argument is one of the good old English virtues we should uphold at any cost, I think.
  9. Interesting! While we share the history of slave trade and colonization, in our society it is not so consciously associated to the upper class. Maybe the social divisions within England were a bit more outspoken. Elitism seems to be a dreaded notion, nowadays, but there were times when also the idealists among socialist movements strived for education, enlightment and good behaviour. I guess your remark on the oxbridge society has some truth, but does it validate the strive for vulgarity and bad taste so evidentl in display in programs like Top Smear?
  10. Here in the Netherlands, we do admire British humor very much. If the n-word is being used in a Monthy Python sketch, its use is being ridiculed within its setting. Within the top gear environment its use has a totally different meaning. It is interesting to note the feeling among english people that their history of politeness and straight jackets nowadays feels like a burden from the past. On a visit to Bradford I was struck by the display of deliberate vulgarity in society. It seems as if the former middle-class has decided to join the ranks of lower society, just to escape any resemblance
