    I'd be curious to see how well M lenses work with this sensor. Quite frankly, some of them are terrible even on the M bodies, and I'm thinking mainly of the superwides. Of course it's not all bad,...

    I think it's great. But as a photographer, I find the iPhone a double edged sword. It's fun to use, and will produce images that will look terrific, at least on social media. I'm still not convinced...

    That's what you call getting shit done!


    It's only true if you really don't have anything better, or if you cannot afford anything better. It basically means, "Don't wait for a better camera,...

    David, you said it all so much better than I could have. It's not about purity, it's about progress.
  5. Looking back at the Epic-X - it's officially ten years old and it still over-performs

    It took about a decade for other manufacturers to catch up with this camera. Key features: up to 120fps at 5K; up to 150fps at 4K.

    The Alexa could already do 120fps at 3.4K, so the difference...

    I suggested this once on a photography forum, and my suggestion was readily dismissed. I think that people will eventually start to demand such features - the very same people who dismissed them in...

    How the hell did this thread get 656,000 views and counting? It's no.3 in the OT forum. I don't know how it would rate across all forums, though. I know it wouldn't make it into the overall top 5,...

    I watched the first one - Patrick Willems did a good job, I think. I enjoyed it, and I sympathised with his enthusiasm. He even used a heavy-handed LUT to make a point.

    But my definition is...

    I'm an everyday capitalist, just like everyone else. I earn my money, I pay my taxes, everybody wins. But job satisfaction counts just as much as the money. Apple didn't set out to make billions with...

    Parts of the trailer are interesting, parts of it are not and look to exaggerated. I look forward to it, anyway.


    Yeah I really don't like that opening shot. Yuck.


    Pretty much what most...

    I like it! Nice, crunchy colours. It reminds me of slide film.

    Can you not just bring the Epic to work and use it instead of, or alongside, the other cameras? The MX out-performs many newer...

    I bet a few people would love to know how rangefinder lenses work on this sensor. Particularly the focal lengths below 100mm. I assume that some will vignette.

  16. A brief conversation between a DP and a colorist

    DP: What a day.

    Colorist: How did it go?

    DP: These lenses. They're made for 65mm, but we're using them on the Monstro 8K.

    Colorist: Right.

    DP: Performance in the corners is perfect. And,...

    It's not something that you can fix overnight, but a good place to start is by trying to understand what is the fundamental explanation for everything. I don't mean anything specific, I mean...

    I'm simply quoting for the JP mention. For many reasons, I have an obsession with this story, although I assure you it is not pathological. Yet? ;-)

    They look very nice indeed.

    Personally I take the near-opposite approach to lenses: put a larger image circle over a smaller sensor. Most of my photos over the past few years have been with old...

    Thanks for posting those frames and 1:1 crops. Nice sensor. It has detail but thanks to the OLPF it's not aggressively sharp. That's a very film-like quality, I think. I am guessing you applied no...

    I recall one commercial DP who used a piece of cheap transparent plastic over the lens to achieve this kind of result. It was very simple and effective, apparently. And cheap. I don't know the...
