maxnimo: "2017 iPhone Photography"?
Hmmmm......
I wonder what the reactions would be if I presented the "2017 white people Photography" contest where only white photographers qualify?
Hmmmm...... just wondering ...

Excluding people that take great photos with a non-iPhone smartphone? What's next? Hmmmm ...

maxnimo: Makes me wonder how the heck they can build a 42 inch 1080p HD television, and ship it across the ocean, for the same price as this small bag.

By logical deduction, that $260 42 inch 1080p television, if made by a small boutique company with plenty of margin, would then probably cost at least $5000.

In reply to:

maxnimo: So if this lens was made to work with FF bodies it would need to be about 50% bigger? Is that right?

Dale - Thanks for a clear and logical answer.

Apparently there cine lenses are just naturally big and can't be miniaturized.

I'd prefer to see the expressions of all the other pedestrians near this guy.

Let me rephrase: If Fuji designed this same lens for the Fuji T2 body, which is not FF, could it be substantially smaller and lighter?

That's a pretty far-out photo. I'd say it's out of my reach. I'd need an astronomically huge lens to snap that.

I thought super directional shotgun microphones are supposed to be at least 12 inches long. Is this some sort of new technology?

Interesting, but what I'd like to see is a detailed review of that 7000 year old camera they dug out of those ancient ruins in Sumeria.

Shannon76: I'm a 40 y/o Canon dslr user so I will be dead before Canon implements affordable 8k. ;)

Or you could start swapping your Canon gear for Panasonic gear and prepare to enjoy decades of more life with affordable 8k.

Why would you need to go back in time 60 seconds? It seems like eternity. For most situations 5 seconds should be more than enough to catch that moment.

maxnimo: If this is a promotional video it's quite possible that some of the scenes were made by skillfully applied computer generated animation. Unless you know, you just don't really know.

If I did your wedding photo shoot and you later found out that your bride looks strangely and excessively beautiful because I replaced her with a completely digital CG version, would you still have any hair left?

To me it doesn't matter. I admire great CGI. But there are others that would pull their hair out and explode in rage at the thought of such a thing.

TenMegaPixel: I realise this is a link to a "Wired" article, but I think that having this photo (of maybe up to 100 people dying in the most horrible way possible) labeled as "Photo of The Week" is just unforgiveable.

So every time a terrible, horrible thing happens, no one should ever take photos and no one should ever document it ... it should be made invisible and forgotten. Brilliant idea, right?

And if you have an angry urge to lash out, why don't you attack those responsible for that terrible, horrible thing ... or is logic a foreign concept to you?
