  • Okay, I finally found perhaps the single most extensive review of the 2015 MacBook. You'll be hard pressed to find more details than this in a single video review. You may not agree with their ...
  • I fully understand that the 2015 MacBook Pro 13" has the same haptic feedback (non-mechanical switch) touchpad mechanism as the 2015 MacBook.  When I went to the Apple Store, I primarily touched ...
  • I went to an Apple Store and played with it.  The keyboard is better than typing on my iPad's glass surface, that's for certain.  It's different than the traditional MacBook Pro keyboard and the ...
  • If you think that's funny, you'll get a kick out of this... https://youtu.be/KHZ8ek-6ccc
  • PS uses multiple cores, yes: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1358970
  • I posted a comment under that YouTube video asking the CPU speed and asking if the max. of 8GB of RAM is limiting.  I think the RAM limit is a key decision.  I am still using an early 3.06GHz iMac ...
  • Sounds great. But it's certainly not ground-breaking on mobile until it comes to iOS. Like it or not, iOS commands the lion's share of the mobile space.

  • All 3 MacBook 2015 CPU speeds are benchmarked here (take note of the 64-bit scores): http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/search?q=MacBook8%2C1+1.3 Benchmarks of the 2015 MacBook Pro 13": http ...
  • What's really new? What makes this Manfrotto more compelling than say the Velbon Ultrek UT-53Q Travel Tripod?

    I ask this as someone who already owns a full size...

  • But on the GX-7, there is a 24p mode that claims it will be saved in a 24p AVCHD file. Ditto for 60p, saved into a progressive 60p file. The oddball on the GX-7 seems to be 30p insofar as it saves ...
  • So if I bring that "fake" 30 "p" file into FCPX and then edit and subsequently Share/Export a Master File, it would be interlaced?  And I would then just change Compressor's field order to ...
  • I fully understand that i = interlaced and p = progressive. I've never been confused about that. What I am saying is that the GX-7 menu system mixes the two! THAT is confusing. And honestly, what ...
  • In the "Rec Quality" menu on the GX-7 , there are various AVCHD choices present to me, but I am confused about some of them.  For example... AVCHD 1920x1080,60i Image Sensor Output 30p 24Mbps The ...
  • High FPS (120-240fps) are all the rage on iPhones theses days making it sad that a dedicated camera lacks HQ slow motion features. And don't tell me about "overheating issues" when a skinny iPhone...

  • You must live in the EU? From what I understand that silly camcorder tax only applies there. I live in Japan where no such tax exists. Furthermore, the GH4's sold outside the EU have no such...

  • You're overlooking what I'm saying. But obviously, only those who have an LX100 can answer me this:

    After you shoot 4K video for 15 minutes and then the video automatically turns off, are you...

  • Overheating issues? Well, what prevents me from shooting in 4k for 15 minutes, stopping the recording but then starting yet another 15 minute recording session SECONDS later? Makes no sense.

  • For me too, but the stupid 15 minute recording limit will most likely keep me from buying it. If only the engineers at Panasonic could have chosen 14nm silicone to keep heat at bay!

  • I don't follow your technojargon but my eyes don't betray me. This F1.7 photo taken by the LX100 at 10.9mm "appears" to my eyes to have the same beautiful level of bokeh as the 20mm F1.7 pancake...

  • It's not "the perfect compact" like I too originally thought it was due to my recent discovery of idiotic video recording time limits, imposed to keep their chip from overheating. I guess we need...
