  1. What all of these have in common? IBIS? Could have been compatibility with new lenses, or slightly olders, or some kind of improvement. Or the Chinese had access to your rolling shutter.
  2. This is one of my favorite rules! I watched recently "An Elephant sitting still". The director Hu Bo commited suicide before the end of the editing. The There are huge issues in Chinese society, but in U.S also. I dare to say that I like the EU's position in the world right now, I am not sure if it is viable, but it is the most reasonable. If I had to choose sides, I would go with the Western World 100%, but living in Greece, the meeting point of East vs West since the Bronze Age, and probably earlier, I know that you can not stop the flow. I have to admit though that there is a certain eastern-o-phobia in America (always was) and this is very apparent in the last episode of GoT. The Easterners are savages and dangerous, and they have to go back in their territories!
  3. The only good thing about the global economy, until recently, is that is so interconnected and twisted than noone dared to really challenged anyone. Ferengi Rule of Acquisition #35 Peace is good for business. Now Trump is...seriously, I am not sure what is he trying to do. U.S.A certainly will loose big time on a financial war. Europe is really well established and are consuming far less than Americans, while they are #1 in renewable energy and recycling, so they can manage to produce and not waste as much, while China and India -they already do -can rise their middle class and consume independantly of the western world. Those 2 are very well connected with Africa, which is the next big thing. (Oh, there is also this by the way, https://www.google.com/amp/s/qz.com/africa/1192493/china-spied-on-african-union-headquarters-for-five-years/amp/ ) China is so big right now, and it is getting bigger, especially now that they do not have the 1 kid policy anymore, that they sneeze and we are catching cold.. Here we are not worrying much about Huawei, everyone spies on everyone anyway, but our SOUVLAKI and GYROS is in danger because of the Chinese, and that is a major crisis! https://www.keeptalkinggreece.com/2019/04/20/souvlaki-price-increase-protest-rally/ Oh! And Ferengi Rule of Acquisition #34 War is good for business, also..
  4. So so true..better than longer, and better than "wider"(=Pocket 4K). I found the XC10/15 form factor very promising for a small video camera, but that went nowhere also.. I am still delaying my P4K purchase, but as the Z cameras are not readily available in Europe, and the bigger sensored ones are not available at all, and nothing under 4.000 comes from Canon/Sony/Panasonic, I have to bite the bullet and order the Pocket sooner or later..
  5. Prores RAW on most Sony cameras of the past 5 years??!! That would be something.. I wouldn't give more than 1/1000 for the a6500 or A7ii to get such feature, and that is because only fools believe in 0 chances! If I was a fool I would say that it is in no way possible. Maybe @IronFilm. Is into something..
  6. I already bought the Insta X 360. I really found it a lot more useful than any existing small sensored action cam/small cam - and they are that also. The stabilization is incredible (from 5.7K to 4K) and you can match it alright with normal footage in Premiere (do not know about Resolve, never tried) with the free GoPro/Kolorpano plug ins. The low light performance is terrible though, can't use it after dark and I do not like to mix small sensored footage with bigger one. Ricoh has a new 1" one with better low light performance In a couple of year, when 8K will be normal, and someone put a few m43 sensors there, they could literally replace normal cameras for a lot of uses.
  7. He may or may not, that's not even inportant. I shouldn't put it there because it doesn't really matter. My point was that he was already "dead" scientifically, professionally, ethically and then they put him on the asylum, because he was right when everyone else was wrong. But he was right, nevertheless. Certainly, he died 14 days after. It is posted already and it is very real. https://www.change.org/p/hbo-remake-game-of-thrones-season-8-with-competent-writers Who are the "mainstream media"? What is their purpose? Do you believe there is a conspiracy going on to push HBO to re-make the 8th season (and the 7th, probably..)? By whom, and why? What are the deeper forces hiding behind it? Are they fighting Goldmam Sachs - which Benioff's father is a shareholder and ex-president? Are the easterners fighting western values through Westeros? All this PC and "fake news" anomalies will ruin the western civilization for sure.
  8. What are you? Cine-Trump?! They guy was put on an asylum because he was right, and saved lives. "Semmelweis was outraged by the indifference of the medical profession and began writing open and increasingly angry letters to prominent European obstetricians, at times denouncing them as irresponsible murderers. His contemporaries, including his wife, believed he was losing his mind and he was in 1865 committed to an asylum (mental institution). Semmelweis died there only 14 days later, possibly after being severely beaten by guards. Semmelweis’ practice only earned widespread acceptance years after his death, when Louis Pasteur developed the germ theory of disease which offered a theoretical explanation for Semmelweis’ findings. Semmelweis is considered a pioneer of antiseptic procedures. THE SEMMELWEIS REFLEX The Semmelweis reflex or “Semmelweis effect” is a metaphor for the reflex-like tendency to reject new evidence or new knowledge because it contradicts established norms, beliefs or paradigms."
  9. You are a rational person, I respect your opinions, but I have noticed a wee tiny bit of short-sightness from your part! All the big explorers that traveled to Eastern Islands on bamboo rafts, conquered Mount Everest on foot, sledged with dogs to the poles, searched for India the wrong way, first explored space on quite litteraly a giant rocket just under their arses, and the millions of humans that conquered something that matters on this planet (from the first samanic-plant medicine to the radio isotopes) fueled all this knowledge and progress with their lives, and I can type words from my mobile phone right now. Also, I never forget that Ignaz Semmelweis was put on an asylum and beaten to death.
  10. Carl Sagan would have never been your friend! I thought that it is common knowledge that the future of mankind is in space. But to our point: "It is estimated that some asteroids could contain all the platinum obtained from landmines in all of history and have a market price of hundreds of billions of dollars. In fact, it is presumed that some contain iron, nickel or cobalt in sufficient quantity to cover the needs of the Earth for 3,000 years." https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.interestingengineering.com/mining-in-space-what-it-means-for-the-economy Google, Elon Musk, Amazon Bazos are the few that race for the space minerals already. They all loved and are inspired by Sagan.. Thanks for that, because @Mkabi almost convinced me that I have forgotten all my film and video education, work and viewing experience! " “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense." I love it when the masses exhibit uncontrolled and undectated common sense, today GOT, tomorrow world peace! ✌ ❤ ✌

    DJI action cam vs z6

    Can't stress enough how much better the Mavic 2 Pro is vs the old one, even though the whole 1" camera seem like rushed from DJI and has some unexpected flaws. The 10 bit 1" sensor is there.
  12. From the 400 pages there are less than 50 with useful information, maybe it should be that way.

    DJI action cam vs z6

    This is a bit too far as a thought. Maybe you didn't need the Z system, but no way a 499$ action cam is similar than any m43/APS-C system. The limitations are simple too many.
  14. They have been past that. OUR next steps will be with very well educated and skilled astronauts, in the Expanse's world, there are hundrends of years ahead of that. There are generations of people born on Ceres and the other colonies, with bodies changed by gravity and the conditions there. Even now scientists are trying to find viable ways to bring exotic metals from space, it is already a thing!
  15. The script writing is leagues ahead of GOT! Earth solved the overpopulation problem sending people to space, first in the Mars colony, then the outer belt, but there are political issues in earth as well, it is not the gardem of Eden it used to be, it is not the Star Trek utopia but a deeply flawed place, but the best there is in this system. The first 2 seasons were truly exceptional. 3 was good, some over simplifications (or the exact opposite!) at times but it really hold its narrative. It made sense in the end. Has anyone watched the Nightflyers? George R. R. Martin Material, and in HDR, but is pushing behind in my To Watch list, every week for half a year now! What a dissapointment the Star Trek re-boot is so far. Just another super humans product. The movies and the series just not worthy of the Star Trek name. I have recently finished watching all the TV series, again, so I am 100% sure..
