    I can see this as a tool but also can see plenty of cases where it simply won't work and if you build an environment that relies on AI detection i think most productions will end up a nightmare.

    Aladdin Lights have similar, not only large foldable versions but the newer all in one panels are much more flexible than previous versions (can roll up the 2x1 no problem). These can be both...

    Onions rings are a sign of sharpness in the lens design. It's a personal preference.

    The more expensive you go the more corrected and heavier a lens becomes. If you want it all then you're looking...

    This is all looking extremely cool. Global shutter - for real or a really fast read out speed? I'd always understood that GS is a trade off between dynamic range - so maybe that's why it is a setting...

    I see they've announced the micro APO range. I've dropped Andrew a line with some questions.

    The focal lengths are identical to the larger ones - so i am guessing they are optically the same or...

    That's really helpful, thanks.

    Are you planning the same kind of pre-order/deposit system as usual? I guess if specs are reasonably set in stone that pre order system could open after that?

    The image quality is there but i think a lot of people don't get RAW workflow and the codec based formats it stores in aren't so good.
