    Something like that, yes.

    Also, note that dashcams like this one have built-in GPS:

  2. Advice required for a 4K TV purchase

    Basically, I'd like to buy a 4K TV this year. Something between 50"-55". As far as cost goes, I think AU$1,500 would be the absolute maximum I would want to spend. I don't have a brand preference,...

    I don't have a direct answer, but I have a few things to say that may or may not be helpful.

    I do not currently own a cinema camera. But if I did, I'd be tempted by two choices:

    - Blackmagic
    -...

    I don't know about broadcast codecs, but some codecs, especially JPEG, don't like pure colours such as red. You lose a lot of resolution and the whole thing is a mess. I'm sure you've all seen that.

    I've said it before: RED could have been cynical and charged more so that their philosophy would be seen as the Holy Grail of motion capture. People get suspicious when you have the best product out...

    I don't suppose you are willing to say how much you paid for that set?


    Lovely images!

    I would probably not bother fixing the Scarlet unless you really, really needed it to finish a project. What to replace it with is a very difficult question! On paper, the Sony A7rIV and A9 seem to...

    That is a good question. I'm going to have to say 60fps over 4K on this one, even though I don't like high frame rates. You want realism, so you're probably going to have to go for that, if you are...

    Does anyone know how much it would cost to have a set of SLR primes cinevized and matched?

    In an ideal world I'd prefer 6K. But you have to use the cards you're dealt. The 6K camera as a package is almost a white elephant. The 4K camera... maybe it's not made just for me, but it does make...
  12. New Metabones Speed Booster for the Blackmagic Pocket 4K

    https://www.43rumors.com/metabones-introduces-a-new-series-of-speed-booster-for-bmpcc-4k-camera/

    I think the BMP4K makes much more sense than the 6K. This is one of those reasons.

    I suggest that it might be worth it. OTOH... you could buy a BM Pocket 4K for about that price. It has more overexposure latitude than the MX sensor, according to this post:

    WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS. WHY. You can get really good cameras for not much money these days. A GH5 costs less than the most expensive iPhone! I love RED but come on, you can buy a Scarlet 4K for not...

    There's hope for me yet, Phil. ;-) Allow me to demonstrate!

    About a year ago, I predicted that the Leica L mount lenses were so large because they were intended to cover the ProFormat sensor. That...

    I should have realized that Red would never have used the RF mount. It looks almost the same as the EF mount, and it's easy to make assumptions based on little data. So from what I can tell, the...

    Very nice work, Nicholas. RED ONE FTW!

    On the odd shot I would have liked to have seen the LUT taken down just a notch, but it looks really nice otherwise.

    That makes sense.



    It seems that the perforations are perfectly stabilized, so maybe they could give it another pass before exporting to stabilize the image, not the perfs. I imagine this would...

    Ok, guys, I think I get it. Replace 'tuneable' with 'a-la-carte' and you have a better way of understanding them. BTW I don't see why you can't put lead in lens elements anymore. It's not dangerous....

    Now I know where to hold my next secret meeting.

    But here's what I don't fully understand: are they tuneable or tuned? Can the owner simply turn a screw and get a different look?

    I object to the use of mediocre sensors in the Hydrogen, too. But as for Blackmagic, well, they offer value, not cutting edge innovation. That's why their products are affordable. The Pocket 4K is a...

    Would it work if you put a mirror where you want the light, and aim the light at the mirror? I've never done that, but mirrors are lighter than lights, especially if the mirror is plastic.
  23. A 4K scan of the pre-9/11 Spider-Man teaser trailer

    I love the look of this film, although I found it quite boring. The gate weave should have been corrected, but it did give me a nostalgia hit. According to IMDB, film stocks were 5274 and SFX 200T.
