    Sony A6400

    30 min limit was due to some EU regulations for importing video cameras. This has been lifted as of 2019 and all new releases should ditch the limit. I don't know if older models can be legally modified via FW updates, but I'd say it is very likely.

    Sony A6400

    The question now is how much of this upgrading could have been done with a FW update for the A6300 (aside from the new screen hinge) and if the AF improvements are coming to the A6500 as well.

    Sony A6400

    <start rant> I feel that selfie vlogging is the lowest kind of film-making and for the most part completely unnecessary. What was once written in short comprehensive (blog) texts now takes dozens of minutes of incoherent blabber banking on the vloggers charisma. This is en even bigger problem when reviewing gear, since most of the testing is not comparable to anything, so it is all extremely subjective. I know that Sony needs a model to cover these users, but it is so frustrating when vlog reviewers (and manufacturers even?) push there (few) features they need as be all end all. I would like to think that most amateur customers still point their cameras away from their faces. </end rant> A6400 seems like a good upgrade to the A6000, which debuted at $800 I think? However, adding even more AF processing on top of 6K downscaled 4K cannot be good for overheating.

    Social Media gets hacked when you get bigger

    Let's not get too excited here - most hacking is a simple matter of social engineering (coning someone into giving you their credentials) and the consequence of insufficient technological knowledge. Similar to leaving your house key under some doormat. Smartphones and social media are ubiquitous now, but the knowledge on how to manage you passwords etc. is not taught anywhere, so this "hacking" is going to happen a lot. Since you guys already know how to post on message boards, read up on password managers, 2 factor verification etc. and you'll be fine.

    After a topic is established as the primary topic for a product, it would make sense to just change the topic title to the said product name.

    In my limited knowledge SIM hijacking would be the only (publicly known) possible way to intercept your code text message, but that would probably render your whole SIM card useless (I guess it didn't). Also, any hacking that is not done by one-button tools is probably way too labor intensive to be used to take down an account with merely (not trying to offend) a five figure follower count. I might be wrong and there is a tool readily available to hack an IG account with 2 factor authentication and some IG competitor is paying someone to take these accounts down. This should be alarming and it is advised that 2 factor authentication is not done via text message, but rather via app with a hash code. As for security, if IG cannot pull off secure 2 factor authentication, you are a lot less likely to be able to do so on your own platform. I, for one, believe that 2 factor authentication is a incredibly secure option for personal use - provided that you use a secure password in the first place (it was not hacked in any previous leaks). I don't buy your story as it is written here, there must a small step missing, or else IG would be in some hot water right now. Celebrity IG accounts would be hacked daily if it were this easy.

    Nikon Z6 features 4K N-LOG, 10bit HDMI output and 120fps 1080p

    haha, poor Sony will have to postpone the a7SIII launch yet again

    Please share more details - did you link you two factor authentication to you phone number? Or do you use authentication app? Was your password stolen in some data breach before that? Do you use a password manager with random password for each account?

    2019: Are we Finally There???

    As misguided as spec wars are, they do create a market for older models that are good enough and that get discounted officially or on the used market after the new generation is out. It is just up to out psychology to accept the products that fulfill our needs and not our wants for the newest and the best.

    DJI Announcing Something New On The 28th

    You just inadvertently confirmed my thesis that smartphone 4K footage is really only comparable to 1080p from a APS-C or FF camera. I would be surprised if it were up to par with 4K from these bigger sensors, even in good light (quick cuts aside).

    But will the footage hold up being intercut with the Sonys?

    2019: Are we Finally There???

    Huawei has been putting out impressive smartphones this year, but it seems that their Kirin 980 still lags behind the SD 855 in some key areas - SD can do 40K60p and can also produce bokeh effects for video and will probably do HDR video as well. Samsung is sticking to their lowest possible mpx count sensors, which I think is a smart idea, since you lighten the load for the CPU and the pixels can be as big as possible. However, Mate 20 PRO sensors seem like a very good bunch, but the Kirin CPU limits them to 4K30p, they started pushing a non-standard nanoSD card and they've also succumbed to the ridicules curved display hype (adding unnecessary fragility to a very expensive phone). This 38mpx sensor looks very good since it is also bigger than what Samsung has been using. Shame on Google though, for creating their Pixel phones that have such a limited availability and then keeping their impressive camera software exclusive to that small bunch of phones - what a close-minded strategy (it should be a OS-wide feature).

    Why Is Sony Fanboyism So Bad?

    I think it boils down to the underdog syndrome - Sony has been pushing innovation hard at the expense of it not being polished enough. I'd wager that most non-PRO users got used to the kinks and like using their cameras, but of course there are those that either really struggle to use them in paid shoots or are just expecting too much (coming from a slow-evolving, but very mature DSLRs). I would go as far as to say that if Sony had the same market share as Canon, they would have the funds to release more polished products, but with the same innovation. Now, with 2 new players in the segment, their first generation bodies suffer from the same kind of unpolishedness and the same loud users are downplaying the (same) kinks, because they can use their preferred brand forever (extreme hypocrisy). This kind of blind loyalty is therefore really hurting Sony's trajectory and their supporters have a right to be disappointed. The worst consequence of all this are now the incessant attempts to label a review that is not in line with users' subjective feelings (and needs) being labeled as biased and fake news (as if reviewers that test an incredible variety of gear don't a have more objective opinion as someone who uses a limited set of gear). I find it most puzzling the attacks on Dpreview reviews, since they live from selling gear from all brands, and the same people putting vloggers on the pedestal where the referral links are showed in the viewer's face.
  14. Wouldn't it be funny if Sony debuted their fastest AF on an a7S body 😄

    There's no denying that this is a far more fragile device than an action camera. Judging by the thumbnail, they were pushing the usage limits.
