  1. Andrew, I'm no Sony fanboy...or fanboy of any manufacturer. Hell, I'd use a gas-powered camera with a crank start if it shot great footage. (Self-noise may become an issue). It is low-hanging fruit to nitpick the shortcoming of this camera. It's easy to point out the fact that this is not an FS5 in an a6000 body. We need to think of this as an upgrade to the a6000 as opposed to a disappointing new offering from Sony. The a6000 was and still is a great camera. A compact and lightweight APSC cam that takes great pics and nice 1080p video. So what if I told you the a6000 now: -shoots 4K 30P -Has a mic jack -Has a touch screen -Has a vertical flip screen -Has improved autofocus for stills and video -It tracks really well -Has better battery life -Has a better/newer processor -Shoots proper timelapse internally -Has a "My Menu" -Higher rez viewfinder -No record limit -Plus so much more... ...I think we'd all think this was an excellent upgrade for which most of us would have no problem paying $300-$400 more. Thoughts?
  2. Yes, likely too good to be true. A far departure from Canon's typical business model. However if it is real, I too would place my preorder as soon as possible. Another interesting thing: No physical (red dot) movie record button. It looks like there is a photo/movie toggle on top. Then you would presumably use the shutter to initiate record or photo, which would be really cool (I think...???)
  3. I see both sides (Andrew's and Joachim's). This is Andrew's attempt to invoke change...it's his call to action. You can't blame someone for casting their opinion on the matter. Especially one that's close to his heart. Unfortunately it's going to do about as much good as does public bitching about politics. 99% of the people who are vocal about a certain subject will never actually DO ANYTHING to actively change things. Words are weapons? We were raised to believe "It's not what you say, it's what you do." We were taught that "Sticks and stones can break our bones but words can never hurt us." Sadly it seems that the pussification & political correctness of society has yielded just the opposite. The exchange of opinions on social platforms is about as effective as people puking into a swimming pool and proceeding to slosh around and exchange hand-fulls of vomit (my own comments included). It quickly becomes an indistinguishable mess where no one is sure what belongs to who, and why we started doing this in the first place. On the other hand it could not be easier to remove yourself from the likes of these detestable sites, and ensure you don't encounter their idiotic content. I love eating healthy, natural food, but I'm not mad at McDonalds for capitalizing on people who want the instant gratification of a cheap unhealthy meal...I'll simply choose to eat somewhere else. Hell, I can even open my own healthy restaurant and make a run at doing things my way. You should view the vidiots as mere moths. An insignificant distraction to those who hone their craft and produce quality content. Logan Paul will not be asked to co-direct with David Fincher any time soon. Maybe he's currently getting big paid for his clickbait. His easily digestible, appeal to the masses, thoughtless dregs of a You Tube channel, but that's a fad, and fads have a shorter lifespan than ever before. The flavor of the month is just that (and guess what, there's an all new and improved one next month). The cream will continue to rise to the top, maybe just not the top of You Tube. So fuck 'em.
