    RTX Studio Laptop

    Interested in any notes on the new Turing based Nvidia RTX laptops.

    The ASUS ProArt StudioBook One has impressive specs with a $10K price tag.

    I wouldn't worry about the bit depth and DR on Komodo vs Gemini/any DSMC2. The real issue for your use case would be frame rates. IAC, I expect your biggest issue in the transition from the VaricamLT...

    I spend hours with the Edmunds catalogs, would be sweet to actually interact with the optics. Kind of like putting down the magazine and going to the mansion in person. RIP Hef.

    With all the AR/MR development going on, I think we will see "viewfinder glasses" come to market. I encourage anyone designing such a product to offer multiple viewing states/presets as well as deep...

    SDI, Triax, Fiber - Oh My

    SDI is fine if the runs aren't too long and the cables are high quality. In many of the live shows I've worked, they also expect to have video return - so you can see what the current live shot is...

    None of the 7" on board monitors I've seen pass muster for critical color/contrast. FWIW, I think they are engineered with other priorities at the forefront. IAC, unless you have a proper hood,...

    AFAIK, the 20mm FFD needed for RF is not physically possible on a DSMC2 body. At least not without an angle grinder... ;-)

    Hate noisy monitors. You can put everything but the monitor/keyboard/mouse/control surface/etc in another room - but if the devices that have to be nearby are whiny, you're boned.

    Thanx Jeffery and Rand for the notes on LED dimming zones. It's particularly interesting since the XDR got dinged for haloing artifacts in dark surrounds - something easily seen in the Flanders A/B...

    I think you have already found the simple answer. There are plenty of corollary issues starting with compression ratios, but a single spinner is weak sauce for playing back R3Ds - either type....

    That's a valid point. That said, since the D-ILA tech offers such deep blacks, the ratio is pretty close. To actually see that ratio, you need a "bat cave" to kill the ambient and reflected light -...

    One of the limitations of perusing various Komodo footage examples is not knowing the creative intent. IMHO, the ideal camera is one that can achieve a wide variety of looks without the image...

    Note to Rand on Clifford's "mean green". Hard to imagine creating an image that green unless you wanted it that way or the tint got pegged by accident. Even when the green is graded back, it still...

    Since you want to travel with only 3 lenses, the 100mm macro is the obvious choice for versatility.
