    i did get a giggle out of this image...  everyone caught up in their own little virtual world. Without a clue whats actually going on. Art imitating life or what ? 🤔

     i'm lucky, i'm heading away from civilization for three weeks. Otherwise i'd be hard pressed to keep my pants on, "metaphorically speaking of course 😳"  However i'll be back in time to see it at the local cinema.  With a large popcorn and frozen coke and a little red pill. I'm just praying, its not some kind of rehash/remake, fleece the public kinda sequel.

    They could do a whole movie about this subject. An analog man lost in an increasingly digitized world. And I would definitely watch it. Not this nonsense.

    I think {hope} we're seeing some clever marketing here. Much of the trailer footage shows a sort of hyper-realistic video gamey aesthetic... perhaps because it is a video game of sorts. Maybe it is the next iteration of the matrix after Neo reached the source and saved Zion. Similar to how the Matrix color tone was green and the real world was blueish in the trilogy, perhaps the matrix is ultra bright, colorful, and contrasty in this movie??

    It looks absolutely terrible. But it was totally to be expected.

    Definitely a "look" to fit how movies are made today.

    Do I like it... not really - but I'm more interested in the storyline and the direction that (atleast) one of the original creators will take this movie. Its definitely hitting the right notes with regards to my nostalgic preferences.

    But... its always been about the storylines for me. Get past the glitz and glamour, get past the CGI, get past the colouring, get past the editorial choices and cuts, get past the BGM or musical choices -> hit an original storyline and I'm in.... I don't want a regurgitated storyline just because its supposed to be nostalgic - I would rather watch the original series for that.

    Might as well read a book...

    @Matins 2 and now you know what the cost of a high quality global shutter cinema camera can be. 

    Good news for you though, their price has dropped massively on eBay! You might pick one up now for only sub US$5K with some luck. (then start adding on all the costs of all the extras...)

    Or here is a Sony SRW-9000PL for sub US$4K:

    Actually, I'll start being serious for a moment, as I just noticed how much the Sony F55 (global shutter!) have continued to drop. You can get one here for just US$5.5K: https://www.ebay.com/itm/124658333277
    And if you'd prefer an OLED viewfinder instead, here is another Sony F55 for only slightly more: https://www.ebay.com/itm/324443097872

    I'd say that a new decent CCD-based RAW-shooting camera with the size of an FX3 shouldn't have to cost tens of thousands of dollars.

    What was it about the camera / footage that you didn't like?

    Manual focus.

    Then there's the build quality, the rolling shutter, the unfixable red dots/focus pixels or stripes using certain settings. I wouldn't say those are deal-breakers compared to its secondhand price.

    There's also the fact that it's 2021. It is not a discreet camera.

    Contrary to Ebay's main platform, Marktplaats is safe for sellers; not so much for buyers. Insured shipping through PostNL usually takes one working day. Online payement in less than a minute. Costly products are usually physically inspected by the buyers first. If you happen to know someone in the Netherlands than this could be an alternative. 

    Personally, I've been screwed twice as a buyer. Last month I made a bargain deal over a $1200 product, only to receive a middle of the night message − a couple of hours before I was about to pick it up − saying: "I've changed my mind and and want to sell my product for way more. Sorry for the hassle!"

    Yeah.  The limitations that Sony deliberately put in their imaging devices really places limitations on the wider industry, all the people that use them, and all the images that come from those imaging devices.

    Unfortunately, the low and mid-tier camera market is stuck in the mud.

    Quality wise, Sony is the McDonald's of the camera industry.

    I suspect that the  t̶w̶o̶ three primary reasons the image sensor market is dominated by Sony is because of: (1) shady business deals between Japanese tech companies and (2) a lack of competition from outsiders.

    (3) Dedication and hard work.

    It's been said many times on this forum, but I do wish manufacturers would focus less on 8k and more on getting colour right, after all Arri has been showing how to do it right for a decade now!

    A gorgeous image is a gorgeous image in whatever resolution.  We've been working on the wrong things. 

    I'm pretty sure Sony is able to mass-produce a cheap CCD-based consumer camera that can record 16-bit RAW internally, but it would screw their entire camera business.

    Nikon’s hands are in the parts bin again! Let’s see what they come up with this time. Pick a sensor (from Sony). Pick an image processor (from Sony). Put it together in Thailand. Stamp a Nikon logo on the front and call it done. As with the Nikon Z6 and Sony A7 III so it follows the Z9 looks to be a Sony A1 with a Nikon badge.

    Well said.
