  1. Shoot Arri, get more jobs, sell more productions, boost your rates. Simple.
  2. Meanwhile, in Sony world, we've long since discovered much the same about our cameras. The a6xxx series was thermal limited for the longest time by a lack of any heat dissipation. Once we "hacked" away the artificial time limit with the help of the OpenMemories-Tweak project [https://github.com/ma1co/OpenMemories-Tweak], we found that the bionz processing chips were sitting bare in the cameras, with not even a thermal pad to help matters. A bit of thermal paste and two copper plates made quick work of that. Now the a6000 and its older brothers are great little cmaeras with no he
  3. Andrew, I can't speak to the forum censorship section of the article, but I'd like to touch on the alleged bias of dpreview.com's articles. 6D MII In the third paragraph of your article (http://www.eoshd.com/2017/06/dpreview-moan-sony-a9-banding-7700hz-led-ad-boards/) you write, "I’ve yet to see anyone come back from one of these exotic trips kicking a camera for lacking 4K."

  4. Ah, but you see, you've missed the lurking variable. Sony isn't replacing their previous cameras with newer models. They're selling them all concurrently!

Every camera on that list is still in production and available for purchase from Sony authorized retailers. www.sony.com/ilc www.sony.com/electronics/compact-cameras
  5. Please explain why it's somehow a point of pride to say "I stopped reading when". Choosing to hear only what you like to hear is a sign of ignorance! "I stopped reading when" means that you were unwilling to give a writer the benefit of doubt. Do you stop reading a novel 75% of the way and then say that it had a terrible ending? Same logic applies here.
  6. This article by Forbes contributor Avi Dan (regarding the demise of Kodak) rings true for me. https://goo.gl/pU8MMC "Companies have to adapt to the requirements of the market, even if that means competing with themselves." "Marketing is tasked with keeping the company relevant to their customers’ needs."
