  1. The Takumars look impressive! By the way, are these the SMC version?
  2. I use external both external drives and DVD (2 copies for things I really care about). Regarding DVDs, I have been happy with the Taiyo Yuden brand. It's a little more expensive than the most common brands, but I think it's worth the price.
  3. I liked the Ninja Star, with one battery it could go for long and it was small and light to carry. I too hope they make a new 4k/6k version.
  4. I have been using ebay since the very beginning and bought and sold many things. As a buyer I only had a couple of issues which were not properly scams but more things that were missing in the description. As a seller instead, since ebay is strongly in favor of the buyer, I usually avoid to sell to users with just a few feedbacks or to users who signed up in ebay just a few days before. And in case of expensive items I also don't sell to users which only buy baubles. However I noticed the customer service got a lot worse in the past years, starting from the "help" page of ebay which makes harder to contact the customer service. And when you do manage to contact them, usually they will give very generic answers. You do have to bother them quite a bit to have some kind of thorough reply. Ok, I don't expect the red carpet, but I would rate ebay's cursomer service just a little better than those of the phone companies. And I don't like at all the new policy implemented this year of having ebay handling all the payment to the seller. It stinks too much of a monopoly. I prefer to have paypal as an external intermediary of the sepa bank thansfer
  5. I think Fujifilm might release some new cameras, maybe a XH2 or a XT5. The XH1 in light of the competition needs a refresh
  6. My plans, if this virus craziness cools down a little, is to get one of either a Panasonic S1H, a combo of Blackmagic P6K + Panasonic S5. But I am waiting to see the video specs of the coming Fuji GFX 100s. I am positive that for stills it will be a monster of a camera. If the video specs are interesting and if the price in Europe will be in the S1H range more or less, I may consider to stretch my budget and do a switch.
  7. In fact many Americans consider they go to a different country when they go to a different US state, while for Europeans that would be seen as going only to a different region
  8. Commander Marko Ramius of the Red October "... you will receive the Order of Lenin for this, Captain!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzKXGKfqGzU
  9. I think that Canon never intended this camera to be targeted at professional works. There are the 1D and Cx00, etc. line for that. 5R with hardware limitations, software limitations? Probably the potential user of this product will never need to record more than 1 minute of 8k raw and definitely will never work on Premiere with H265 files. This is the camera targeted to rich amateurs like parents recording graduations and soccer games, rich tourists, etc. where there are way more potential users for each potential one using it as a professional tool. After all, the Canon lenses are good, the PDFAF is good, colors are good. The aggressive marketing of Canon is good at selling products and probably Canon will sell a lot fo 5R and 6R. Just go to any camera shop and you will see 40% of the space taken up by Canon, another 40% by Sony, 10% by Nikon and the remaining 10% divided among Panasonic, Leica, Olympus.
  10. 12k camera for 10000 euro/dollars. Probably about as much for the new computer needed to work with those files 🥴😰
  11. The first ever camera I touched was the analog camera from Olympus of my father. It's from the 1980s and it is still working today even if no one is using it any more. Always sad news when decades of expertise and craftmanship goes torn up by the stock market logic and the so called "investment companies", which are nothing more than the legal, pusillanimous and modern form of a buccaneer.
  12. Wow, good to know! I too can jump on the Prores Raw wagon 😀
  13. It means the economy there runs faster and people have more money, which translates into a higher number of human interactions on long distances. It's the same thing as the virus popping up more in big cities than in remote mountain villages
  14. The covid-19 coming out of a lab due to a conspiracy is a fake news. Artificial virus exist and are created for research purposes but they have in their RNA codes a footprint easily recognizable as human by other scientists, since they have long chains in their RNA code originating from the human intervention. Virus deriving from natural mutations instead have small mutations spread out all over their RNA code. This is what said a prominent scientist in a tv show in Italy. This tv show is know for being a serious one.
  15. Well, hasn't been New Zealand the first country on the planet to have universal suffrage, rights to indigenous populations and a total ban on any military ship of any country, allies included, having nuclear propulsion or capable of using nuclear weapons?
