    no_connection got a reaction from Emanuel in iPhone Photography sort of on Sterioids.   
    Sure but that costs way to much. I just want the camera part of it :P

    Why can't someone put a good phone camera into a gopro like form factor. Or even a phone with bigger battery a screen and useful amount of storage.

    The useful feature to take out from that would be automatic keying. Or if you want to vlog but don't want things showing in the background.

    If you ever wanted to watch lenses get taken apart and cleaned then put back together you can.

    Remember that noise is a linear thing, which is why bright objects are cleaner than shadows when viewed with normal display gamma. Also there is only so many photons around to begin with and that sets a base value for how little noise there can be (don't ask me how close to it we are tho).
    There might also be the camera compensating to match t stop and f stop between lenses. Meaning if one lens loose more light than another and that gets compensated for it will be noisier.

    no_connection got a reaction from anax276 in Shoot in the dark or fake it?   
    I say properly lit it and "fake" it, cause if you can figure out and master it you will have some really valuable skills from it.
    Go watch some classic movies with night scenes, you can be pretty sure most if not all of them are lit, take elements you like from those and try to figure out how it was done.
    You can still get away with pretty low amount of light and small LED even with crappy color will do fine, you are going to have very low saturation at night anyway. a bunch of 1$ light meant for closets for example, be creative.
    Forget the 180* rule, if you ever walked around at night any movement will blur very fast, so cranking it as slow at it will go can work for that feel, and save you a stop of light too.
    It will also limit some of the "strobing" you will get from bright lights or highlights when panning.

    no_connection got a reaction from Mattias Burling in EOS R does NOT lack sharpness in 4K - Here's proof   
    https://www.eoshd.com/2015/07/shootout-of-the-4k-flagships-canon-1d-c-versus-samsung-nx1/
    It's more to color than white balance, although corrected does put them more equal it's still very apparent the difference in rendering many shades of green vs just a few.
    I think the point was that 90% of ppl showed bias when shown brand names instead of numbers and answered differently because of this.

    I don't get it, none of the ads made the product not look like crap, is the takeaway here that all of them fail no matter the budget?

    no_connection got a reaction from austinchimp in EOS R does NOT lack sharpness in 4K - Here's proof   
    I don't know what he means in the video, to me the EOS R does NOT get sharper with the sharpness setting, sure it adds a halo and increase the local contrast making letters stand out more, but I don't see any indication of "size of blur" getting smaller/more detailed. Sure it kinda looks sharper and does make it easier to show some detail but not really fixing the softness.
    You can see the outline of the Chinese? letters around the 4:08 mark on the battery grip box get more defined while on the X-T3 (without halos mind you) you can see they have detail inside of them.
    So I guess my take from it is, yeah it does not lack sharpness as in halos and edge contrast since I really don't like that. But it sure does lack detail/resolution compared to what other offers without being overly sharpened (in this case X-T3).
    Now if this is the megapixel race of 4k or not I'm not sure, but cramming too much content all the way to nyquist do mess up a lot of scaling algorithms and do become a hassle at times, with audio you want the resolution to be way higher than the content so I don't see the problem doing the same for video if you know what you are doing.
    I'm kinda balancing between "yeah it's soft and lack details but" and "I want that 1:1 pixel detail because reasons"
    So is the real resolution about 3k vs 4k(example)? and does it matter at the end of the day? If you had quick turnaround and uploaded camera file in 4k to youtube, do the 1080 being scaled by youtube look better than similar X-T3 shot? How does it look like on a phone?

    no_connection got a reaction from webrunner5 in Intersting survey about bokeh   
    I agree, would have been nice if the video was actually about bokeh and not just amount of blur, although that was maybe interesting.
    It does show that ppl care more about balance and composition than fast lenses. ie if lots of blur don't add anything to the image, don't use it.
    Or use it creatively if you want to put the viewer at unease for some reason.

    It does show the auto iris being very ugly, and autofocus hunting and being very ugly. The slider shot looks so bad.

    They put pixel shift on the wrong camera. S1 is the one that would benefit the most. And I highly doubt it would eat any profit from the S1R ether, just more ppl going for S1 in the first place.

    Button layout and ergonomics looks great!
    and finally a dedicated back focus button instead of reassigning ae-l button.
    I like the top LCD, none of that OLED crap!
    And the big lens for EVF looks very good.
    It better not have a glaring flaw to break it all.

    Focal length or pan speed does not really matter as long as you can see and measure the effect.
    In short you have a vertical line like a lamp post, when you pan it at a constant speed you take the distance between two frames, then you check how much the bottom part of the line lags behind. Then you calculate the % of the distance that it lagged compared to distance moved. Then you take the frame time, roughly 42ms for 24fps. And you apply your % to that.
    X-T2 would be about 72% lag if RS is 30ms. Which when you think about it it is quite a lot, the bottom part of the image is lagging a significant portion of the frame behind.
    The a6300 pretty much lags an entire frame behind between top and bottom, which is why 30fps had to be cropped (only 33ms to work with)

    no_connection got a reaction from Inazuma in 35mm equivalent marketing   
    This probably bugs me more than it should, but they always leave out the f45 part from the equivalent equation. Don't large numbers there sound equally impressive?
    24-3000mm f15-45 suddenly sounds really stupid when it comes to light gathering.
    4.2-532mm f2.8-8 is the real lens but I'm starting to think that is a stretch too. Although it is impressive zoom range tho, but why.

    Since when have bayer sensors been a problem?  I have taken lots of pictures with my Nikon D80 that I have come back to and went wow, that looks amazing, and back then I didn't shoot raw cause I only had 2GB SD card.
    He goes on that numbers don't mean anything and yet he completely dissed anything "modern" with high "pixel count" as being not good enough? a step backward?
    I thought he meant to make a point that content was the important part but it was kinda lost when he pretty much went to spec war film vs modern, which on paper had the better spec(k). (pun intended) Oh and you also need to shoot on Cooke. Not cookie or cake.
