    This is a subject of much heated debate around here. I believe that most masks will help prevent someone infected from accidentally spraying everywhere. I don't believe most masks would prevent...

    I don't know if it's publicly available or you know someone who has it but the Imperial College paper that various media agencies started quoting is a good read - it's well thought out, evidenced and...

    The only thing i'd add (because i'm seeing some issues) is that whilst that means physically they will fit but will all the lenses perform as best they can? The wider M mounts tend to have very...

    Except they don't! If you look at some of the more in depth reviews (Sean Reid for example or Jono Slack) then the SLs don't perform as well as M at the edges because the stack is still too thick....

    It's a scaling error. Lots of Sonys i've used have done this. IMHO it's the creation of negative lobes due to sharpening/scaling. Happens a lot in VFX work if you are dealing with high contrast...

    You don't want or need log encoding if you can record RAW. The 8 bit RAW files have a tone curve in them for compression anyway.
    There's no point recording anything other than RAW off these things...

    The fp is like a sensor in a box. It's uncompressed RAW to an external SSD (or 8 bit RAW with a tone curve to SDXC - calling it 8 bit is unfair because it's pre debayer 8 bit and the quality is...

    Looks great - any idea what the weight will be? And does it have an onboard fan?

    99.9% of prosumer cameras operate in 12bits in movie mode, even the latest sensors. That next generation up in cine cameras is where the cost comes in.

    Also even in stills mode (usually 14 bit)...

    My wife and I (she director and Greek) love it. Which is a testament to the series because as a Greek then you'd know a lot about the much loathed Ottoman empire. History is written by the victors...

    I totally agree. Also if you shot in DC mode you get a pixel for pixel crop from the sensor. The 6K full frame -> UHD is softened a little by the scale.

    I hope they can offer more crops (DCI 4K...

    I can guess the lens, MS Optics? Very cool guy, all hand designed AFAIK.

    Nah, mine doesn't crush like that and i play in the dark a lot.

    I think it looks like something through a baked codec, the decision to crush there to not show noise maybe. It's difficult to do an...

    What's technically wrong with cDNG, i mean it's a codec holding RAW data - RAW data is the most basic simplest data there is.

    In this case IMHO people should have just developed cDNG more. There...

    That's an interesting statement, implying that the sensor itself is versioned internally and has made improvements on each batch perhaps. So now we're adding 'vintage' to a particular sensor as well...
