  1. Yea, I think for billboards you can go half of that, too. My 28mp NX1 is my main workhorse for commercial work (still does the trick, even for big prints). But for my personal work, I'm looking to 80 to 100mp as my sweet spot, something that almost rivals (if only) large format cameras when it comes to details.
  2. The high-res mode is still a tad problematic for me. It's fine if you have a still subject, but problematic if you're using flash or shooting people.
  3. My Pocket 4k is killing it. I used to be in an endless journey of finding the next best thing (which was nurtured by this website), and this beast just took care of that itch completely. I've been shooting nonstop with it since I got it, and I think I'm set for the next decade, until it starts having problems and a newer pocket 4k shows up, smaller with IBIS and full-day battery life. But the photographer in me is looking for a high megapixel camera that is value for money (I strive to do large prints for exhibition). I'd love to jump on the Fuji GFX 100s, but it's still too expensive for me. I'm hoping Sony or Canon releases something along the lines of 80 to 100 mp by June. I have the Samsung NX1 to sustain me till then.
  4. Here's the thing, kid. In the old days, when everything was cinematic, we had film cameras without 30 minute recording limits. Why, we could turn one on and have it record for a full year.

    NX1, baby!

    It's a beast. I still use mine as a main. This camera simply refuses to die out. Keeps resurfacing again and again.
  6. Late to the party. I really enjoyed this article. First of all, it feels like the early days of EOSHD when the hacks for GH2 came out. Secondly, although entirely unnecessary, Andrew is willing to burn bridges with his friend at Canon. Haha Very on character.
  7. I've personally come to enjoy it over the years. Andrew's a mix between a camera-tech-futurist and Daily Mail. He doesn't disappoint. Haha Camera tech news alone is pretty boring otherwise.

    Stock music

    This ad came up for me on FB. $299 fee as an introductory offer for a lifetime of stock music. Seemed a bit too good to be true. Anyone use it yet? https://audiio.com/lifetime
  9. Think it's signaling that it's ready to mount with the Ursa 12k .
  10. Andrew, I'm disappointed. Been using the Blackmagic 4k for almost a year now and it's a beast with a ridiculous amount of features, and it continues to improve. Completely changed the game for me. It's everything I'd come to expect from a dream camera (a lot of which I'd come to expect after years of reading your blog).
  11. Would it work with my BMP4K and a light lens? All I need to know.

    Learning by osmosis?

    Well, there definitely has to be a structural approach to learning. Even if you keep watching the same film over and over again, perhaps this time without the sound. You'll notice things you otherwise would not have. Perhaps the next time, maybe try reediting the movie to see how it works worse or better. Etc. I personally dip back into Scorsese films every year. I'm a fan of his characters, editing and structure. Can't ever learn enough from his films.
  13. I have a unique problem of needing a camera with high megapixels (40+). Thankfully my BMP4K solves a lot of problems on the video side. Wish it was just one single body.
  14. BMP4K has killed my interests in finding another dslr-type cinema camera. But I wouldn't mind an S1R type (crazy high megapixel) that does 10bit video (highly improbable).
  15. Took a break from GoT. I said Dany deserved better based on how her character had been written till date. Anything is logical if you can justify it. Which is the point. If the arc hadn't been sped up, or worse--like in this case--skipped, I would have been fine with it.
  16. I think the overall exposure was set lower than it had to be in post (as a creative choice, I liked it).
  17. In the market for a new monitor for my BMP4K. Found a waveform monitor for $239. Can't tell if it's too good to be true. https://www.amazon.com/Desview-1000nits-Brightness-Interface-Stabilizer/dp/B07RCVBLRL/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1BRAENNTZAFQ8&keywords=vector+scope+monitor&qid=1557649211&s=gateway&sprefix=vectorscope+monito%2Celectronics%2C495&sr=8-3
  18. GoPro's been a dead horse for a while now, with one bad move after another. Don't think DJI can challenge a company that is barely afloat.
