    QMedia got a reaction from Sekhar in Is Samsung shutting down their camera business?   
    I have seen these tests, but both are quite old (December 2014). That was way back on firmware 1.10. Do we have any conclusive tests on 1.40? Many things have changed on the NX1 since these tests were conducted.

    ​The real irony seems to be a bit lost on you. But let's address your made up irony first...
    I have not "sacrificed" raw, 10bit, 422, colour science and other aspects merely for resolution.
    I still treat the image as a visual whole and not a mere number.
    I have shot with the Digital Bolex - lovely raw and tip top colour... I have shot with Blackmagic for 10bit ProRes and of course 5D Mark III raw, and could go back to any one of them any time I please... in fact it would make my life a lot easier not having to cover all these cutting edge new cameras that just so happen to be 4K, for ungrateful bastards like you....
    But I don't and that is because the current 4K cameras look lovely.
    14bit Raw or 10bit 422 and the best colour science is a spec like any other... and it is rather overrated itself.
    For example the highlight roll off is smoother in 8bit SLOG on the A7S compared to 14bit raw on the 5D3 - go and figure.
    Indeed I prefer the 8bit 422 LOG image from the 1D C to Blackmagic's 12bit raw for colour. Again, go figure...
    Hands down my favourite image at the moment is the Canon 1D C so I am not a brainless 'Canon basher'.
    Those you will have followed EOSHD for a while or those in the know will get the satire... others won't... If you don't get it, then hopefully it will tweak your interest in the current state of play enough to research into the subject a bit more.

    QMedia reacted to Caleb Genheimer in The importance of firmware updates and why Panasonic are too late with V-LOG for the GH4   
    The footage I've shot in the past month alone, with just my NX1/16-50/Ronin M trifecta, is proof to me that Samsung could crush everyone else if they play their cards right. They've nailed everything except the codec. The Autofocus is insane, the BSI sensor is a beast, the build quality is pro, the batteries last long, the tech inside is from this century. Even the h.265 is good in theory, but rather than use the superior compression for smaller files, they should use it for higher quality, 10 bit. Sure, the Sonys offer "more", but look at the price tags.

    QMedia got a reaction from Ed_David in First Sony A7R II user experiences - global shutter and native ISO 800?   
    Please indulge us and make your "over and out" permanent! If you are so bored, start your own blog and see how that works for you...Easy to be a critic Jimmy, harder to produce. I for one am tired of your snot nosed, know it all or been there attitude. Oh, and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

    ​I like your policy!
    Some may not agree, but from a few (sometimes many) of the comments I have read on this blog, sadly you are spot on.
    Wonder if there is some sort of litmus test that could weed them out...  (IQ has to be greater than shoe size for example)

    QMedia got a reaction from Cinegain in Canon struck raw, EVF and brighter zoom from XC10 “for cost reasons”   
    The XC10 is a dog with fleas in low light. Not speculating here, I have seen it. All the bitrate in the world will not fix it. 10 bit 422 will not fix it. The problem is twofold, small sensor and slow glass, neither of which you can do anything about. A 1" sensor is 12.80 x 9.60 mm or 122.88 square mm. A MFT is 17.30 x 13.00 mm or 224.90 square mm. An APS-C is 23.60 x 15.60 mm or 368.95 square mm. The APS-C sensor is THREE bloody times the size of a 1" sensor. The MFT sensor is almost twice as large.
    If you don't care about low light performance, go for it, if that floats your boat. It does not float mine.

    Best forget about great lowlight performance on this one. I saw it side by side a C300 Mark II in a special darkened room at the Canon NAB booth. It absolutely sucked. So if you have visions of intercutting material with the C300 Mark II, you better keep the lights blazing...

    ​That's exactly what I noticed at Photokina as well.
    All the actual customers are at Blackmagic.
    All the suits were over at Canon.

    QMedia got a reaction from leeys in Canon XC10 4K camcorder   
    It seems obvious Canon wants to protect it's higher end products, but get real Canon. $2500 gets you slow fixed glass, and a 1" sensor? As pointed out, Canon would not even have a higher end video line if it were not for the success of the 5D series. I remember the Canon XL-1, awesome for the money at the time, sold like crazy. What happened Canon?  Samsung should put together a rig with a super 35 sensor, internal/external recording with 422 10 bit codec, XLR connectors, internal 4K (like NX-1) and higher bitrate recording options. They have no higher end to worry about cannibalizing. Sell it for 5K or less, and they would OWN the enthusiast market.

    Andrew, I Really like the look of the A7S on this. Great video. Nobody has mentioned the music, which I thought was fantastic. A very talented group of musicians, I checked out other tracks on SoundCloud. These guys have the stuff to make it big. Cameron's voice is amazing.

    QMedia got a reaction from Orangenz in Top Gear - Clarkson contract won't be renewed by BBC. Should there be one rule for talent, one rule for "the rest"?   
    ​What is your point Jay Edgar? Who asked you for a review of EOSHD? Better yet, who do you think cares what you think? If you don't like the site, go somewhere else. Why take your time to bag on Andrew? What are your accomplishments? Since you think the site is so crappy and so easily outdone, please direct us to yours...So easy to bag on someone else and their accomplishments. So easy to be critical of others.
    Seems like you got your shorts in-a-bunch over the Clarkson issue and want to take it out on Andrew Reid because of his position. I commend Reid simply for the fact that he took a position and felt strongly enough about it to vocalize it. You don't have to agree with it, that is alright, but don't shoot the messenger. It is so easy and safe to play in the middle, don't take a stand, don't say anything controversial, and by all means, don't offend anyone. It is also gutless. Clarkson understands this and so does Reid.
