  1. There was no post confirmation message, hence multiple replies. No delete option.
  2. Yeah, I am almont scared that they will offer Medium Format at too tempting a price to refuse (but it will really test my credit card). Good to hear they are bringing the size down.

  7. Thank you, sounds pretty useless except for home users. Assuming 8k is 4 times the size of 4k and 100Mbps is my bare minimum for H.265 4K recording, does that mean I need to wait for a camera that can do at least 400Mbps in 8K using H.265? I will be waiting for a Fuji that can do in-camera recording and 200Mbps seemed to be what was needed for gradeable HDR quality using H.265. Obviously the more the merrier but some vloggers said they thought that the 400Mbps setting wasn't essential in the XT3. I think at 400Mbps I would be trying to bake the image into the camera to avoid losing anything when grading. Which is fine for what I film. Maybe 800Mbps would be needed if we want to be able to properly edit the footage without it breaking down, or isn't it that simple? I assume AV1 will be used for 8K instead of H.265, so maybe 600Mbps would be a sweet shot for decent HDR footage for 8K TVs?
  8. I don't have it all worked out but similar works well in various countries. Don't let past mistakes make you biased against new ideas. The 1984 totalitarian thing is an easy excuse to brush new ideas aside. The current 2 party system is idiotic and full of useless career politicians. There has to be a better way. Perhaps a no party system which works a bit like a company seems better to me. There is the board of directors who help the CEO make the right decisions and replace him or her when needed. All these people must be elected of course. Just different levels: The public shouldn't decide on the prime minister. Its a ridiculous popularity contest with propaganda, bickering and mud slinging aided by the biased media. Obviously strict freedom laws to make sure we don't get oppressed. Basically, the best people for the job not the Eton lot who were born and bred to get cushy jobs in politics. For example, everyone nominates someone they think would be good. Someone not far right or far left. For example, David Attenborough might be a suitable person to play a role. Maybe just on the board of directors. A particularly good university professor might be another, like Jordan Peterson or Bret Weinstein who are both centrists and intellectuals who make good moral common sense decisions. These are the sort you would pay more to quit their job and take up a role in government.
  9. Not sure why I wasn't allowed to edit my post after about 5 minutes? I added some research about the Samsung phones 8K. Anyway, last years did it too. I forgot to work out bitrate from file size but will look it up. I will leave out the source link this time in case that is why the edit failed:
  10. I saw the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra does 8K video, so will look into the bitrate for that. Probably too low or probably have to do just short clips. Otherwise, will continue waiting for an 8K Fujifilm camera (maybe the XH2 or maybe we are still a couple of years away). May get their XE4 for street photography and a bit of 4K.
  11. Thanks. AV1 apparently offers 30% better compression for videos (according to some random sites I clicked on). Hopefully we can just re-encode our low bitrate H.265 videos, as they are small for streaming and can't afford to have any quality lost at all, so will have to give it a try. We might not have all the masters anymore as they were so big in Pro Res.
  12. I had the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 and it was terrible. On first glance it seemed OK, but on closer inspection the optics were all over the place (maybe it was just my copy). The Olympus 25mm f1.8 was more consistent but not great. I have only tried the 25mm f1.2 in a store and it was a joy to behold, that feathered bokeh really did deserve that new name imo. Instead I had and loved the Sigma 30mm f1.4, absolutely stunning sharpness. A million times better than the f1.7 and f1.8 25mm lenses, so the extra length didn't bother me. Its an absolute bargain too, so you could also grab the 56mm f1.4, or the Olympus 75mm with you having the 42.5mm already. I liked the way a wedding photographer was way back from the action at my brother's wedding, totally non invasive. Whilst the bride's friends were all up in their faces the whole time with their GoPro and little mirrorless camera with kit lens. If thinking of getting the Olympus f1.2 you might want to check the T stop. At least one of those pro lenses had so much going on that it was only letting in a similar amount of light as a Sigma f1.4. That trio of Sigmas are awesome and I can't wait for them to come to Fujifilm, hopefully this year. They are what I miss most about M43.
  13. I 100% disagree and think you are being harsh and disrespectful. People were terribly informed about the pros and cons of Brexit. The average person can't be expected to learn all of this. It should be elected people with excellent minds who make the right decisions for us. The public is too easily manipulated by the media. Even my Mum won't take my word over the news and governments. She has been indoctrinated and 2020 was a big eye opener for how things work in the UK and US and how broken the systems are.
  14. Absolutely superb article Mr Reid. You perfectly hit the nail on the head. I will check the other comments before deciding whether to risk adding my own views as people are very touchy these days.
  15. Is H.265 being replaced by AV1 or VP9 on Windows and new TV models? We have had reports of new TVs not playing H.265 MP4 videos. I suspect it is because HEVC want licencing fees. The other two are open source and free. It's an easy fix on PCs by downloading VLC media player but seems like it could be a giant problem if new TVs cant play H.265 videos. People may have to go back to the old way of using a media player box to play videos on their TVs. Which isn't too bad as they are tiny and only cost ~$40, but its still an extra step and bit of hassle. I assume the manufacturers of the media players are too small to need to pay the royalties to HEVC. Or is there a way to install the H.265 codec on TVs like we can on PCs? On PCs you just need to install VLC, you don't have to use it. It's just one of various ways to get the codec back on your PC. I also wonder if this will affect cameras that film in H.265. Maybe they will need to charge more or start changing their codec too? Might become some kind of restriction like the 30 minute limit in Europe which was a pain for hybrid cameras.
