  1. As we all get older... the excitement of things - because we have experienced it already.... wears down and wears thin. So we seek for those original thoughts, pieces, discoveries, explorations to reignite that excitement. But, we also like to share that excitement, we show & share the same things that excites us with friends and family - we like to see that face and/or reaction on the uninitiated. Thereby reliving the moment that you first discovered it! I guess thats why those "reaction" videos do well on Youtube. I love those moments when I show stuff from my childhood back

    @kye You have the GH5, right? Have you tried the 6K Anamorphic (open gate) with (Cheap) Anamorphic lenses? See if that helps you on your quest of moving from the video look to the cinematic look.
  3. nothing different from a7s3 (I was expecting atleast DCI and Anamorphic, but none of that) and $400 more... I mean.... if you feel that the exterior fluff is important to warrant additional $400... get it!
  4. It’s an untapped market. They figured that the problem existed from their previous cameras burning and blistering their customer’s faces... now Canon is getting into the game... it’s only natural... a true professional doesn’t have time to run to the fridge for an ice pack. This is perfect for run and gun facecooling!!! This is how you introduce a problem that never existed in the first place... and solve it too... brilliant.
  5. In my opinion, look at the other subject matter in this forum and other forums -> see where the industry is headed. If I were you... I would go for the Panasonic S1H. I know the arguments about AF and lack of 4K/120fps. But, if your impressed by Sony Venice and Red Cams <- remember they don't have proper AF either. You can't argue with the higher Resolutions, Anamorphic Modes and its Netflix approved (this is actually the number 1 reason why I would recommend the S1H over the other cameras). Just so you know Netflix is planning on expanding on ABQ studios.... just sa
  6. My wife behaves the same way... I feel like if its a nightly thing.... she does all that and more, but say I'm working and don't have time to watch TV.... a week or 2 passes by... and I have about a couple of hours to spare and watching a movie is the only option - my wife shuts up and watches a movie. Similarly a movie theatre does the same thing... its not like we are doing it everyday. Choose a movie night and lay down the rules.
  7. This is where our thought processes diverge... Theatres don't support filmmakers... studios support filmmakers... I know you are going to say that theatres support studios and so from super structure point of view that if theatres support studios then theatres support the creatives/artists... right? Perhaps, but that only gives half the story. Here you go: https://money.cnn.com/2002/03/08/smbusiness/q_movies/ Most of that article is about movie snacks and that garbage, but the biggest takeaways for me is that: "Most of the money from ticket sales goes back to the movie stu
  8. I feel that all of it is going to implode on itself eventually. The billionaires are not going to get on their knees to clean every room in their 1000 room mansion... nor will they build their own homes by themselves. Even if there are layoffs in the middle class area where reasonable knowledge is required... what I often witness is that there is deep regret afterwards, because they have to waste money and time finding a reasonable substitute, or whoever takes on the duties is overwhelmed and overworked then the company pays in the long run from letting go not one but 2 (even if the guy goes o
  9. Exactly. It is as you stated like “every other industry”. But, I don’t have a problem with that... Now, as an example... I don’t expect the person straight out of high school - getting his/her first job as a server at McDonald’s to be making the same amount as the CEO of McDonalds. Obviously, the current CEO had to earn their way to the top... they didn’t just magically get there. Now, there are times where Nepotism, favouritism and/or connections comes into play... I hope that it is less in companies that are public over private companies, as board of directors vote for CEOS, and th
  10. As opposed it going to the studios??? And, movie theatre chains??? Look... Scorsese’s Irishmen went straight to Netflix... Dave Chappelle got a 60 million dollar - 3 special deal with Netflix... Joe Rogen signed a $100 million dollar deal with Spotify. Just saying... as much as you think that the artists are not getting their pay... just not completely correct. Music industry went the way it went because people were pirating the music online anyway.
  11. In my opinion, these will all be outdated ideals in the end. im sure the drive-in theatres, beta-max, horse carriages all felt the same way. Poor horse carriages. Time to pack up and move on.
  12. Ever watch Shark Tank or Dragon's Den? The point of the game, for any company selling any products -> 1 product (cost to make XX amount) but sell for 3 to 4 times XX amount. But, if you are selling it for 3 to 4 times XX amount, that amount has to make sense to the customer. At the beginning the iphone was like $699 (top end model - and yeah times and part prices have changed too over the last decade or so) - nonetheless, its slowly climbed to $1199 and customers deem it worthy to pay that... So, if Nikon isn't selling it for 3 to 4 times the amount to create it... whose fau
  13. iPhones are Apple's main source of income not Macs... period. Just because you aren't doing that doesnt mean "nobody". And, I've already named 2 hollywood movies filmed on iPhone i.e. Tangerine and Unsane. I was going to write a bunch of stuff.... but I will let Andrew's last words sink in... also read other people's posts as well, especially Danyyyel. If you're not seeing the clues.... I don't know.... I can't help you....
  14. I think that you’re missing all the warning signs and red signals. - Samsung left. - Olympus sold their shit and left. - Nikon might leave. - Photokina terminated. Again... why would Apple enter when everyone is leaving? I know... you are going to pull the ecosystem argument on me... but hear me out. Pro res... created long a ago... it’s not new... they didn’t create it to ultimately get into the camera business... they created it so that Artistic people can buy their computers... “Oh your videos don’t play back smoothly on your Windows PC?
