maxnimo: Wouldn't a rotatable sensor be more practical than rotating the whole camera and having all those duplicate buttons?

MS - Yes, that would be even better, providing the square sensor wouldn't be too expensive.

maxnimo: They need to come up with some sort of a universal short-range, encrypted Wi-Fi that can communicate directly and easily between any and all devices.... Like between a TV, camera, laptop over internet, house lights, alarm system, front door, car, fridge, backup storage... etc.

It needs to be as fast as the fastest Wi-Fi and as simple as Bluetooth. Let's call it Blue-Wi.

maxnimo: Why do they call it a 1" sensor when not even the diagonal is even close to 1" in length?

4/3 stands for the aspect ratio, not inches. I guess it never occurred to them that this would bring confusion to many.

Well, I very strongly vote in favor of updating these sensor size conventions, as well as putting an end to the ridiculous and perfectly dreadful habit of mixing fractions and decimals in a number.

I hope I'm not the only Earthling in favor of this change.

On NAB 2015 Highlights article (14 comments in total)

8K at 300 fps - the ultimate goal! Can't wait - I hope I live long enough to see it.

Be careful with this lens ... if you focus on the eye, the eye lashes will be all blurry. This is a very dangerous lens ... keep out of reach of children and amateurs!

maxnimo: Duh! - Just cover the camera body with solar cells so it perpetually trickle-charges a battery or capacitor.

The battery or capacitor would store the energy collected throughout the day, then slowly release it during night time.
Solar lights have used this principle for years.

Sezano: Fantastic camera!
How about a constant f2.8. I'd gladly pay a lot of mullah.

@Sezano - Let me rephrase: Whatever mullah you pay, I'll double it!

straylightrun: To all those wanting a 1" sensor, good luck getting a 24-720mm equiv lens that isn't the size of a bazooka.

You're too negative. When we learn how to modify the laws of physics anything will be possible.

And if it also had a FF sensor I'd pay even more mullah than you.:)

On Canon drops prices on 31 high-end L lenses article (58 comments in total)

Sounds somewhat depressing to me. I can just imagine Canon executives living in cardboard boxes and starving in order to bring us better prices. Such kindness is rare.

Would this camera be good enough to film a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster?
Just curious.

I just noticed the great scarcity of lens reviews. I hope someone realizes that lens quality is just as important as a camera body.

On Nikon 1 J5: What you need to know article (493 comments in total)

I'm not so sure about 4K at15 fps... it seems too fast. I'd prefer 5 fps. Slower is always safer, that's what grandma used to say.
