Well, it still can run on Linux, isn't? :D

David Elliott Lewis: Trading off resolution for depth - 3D imaging at the expense of resolution. In reading about their backlit light field LCD tech, technology they are rightfully afraid to demonstrate, I learned that they divide their image into 64 separate smaller images. Each image copy, displaying from a different angle, only contains 1/64th the amount of visual information. In other words, this display will create the illusion of 3 dimensions at the expense of an extreme reduction in detail and resolution.

You can expect a "Star Wars" level of detail - 1977 Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope hologram level of detail. Remember that film and its low resolution hologram of Princess Leia? That appears to be what this Red Hydrogen phone display shows.

I'm pretty much sure you get better 3d feeling when you put your 2d phone into the g-cardboard than with this Red device :D

Why everybody always mentions "holographic" (Red, BMW,...)? This is (from the descriptions) just an improved lenticular display. Holographic imagery is way too different (and difficult) than this.

dark goob: Hold off for 16k. These 8k and 4k things are just fads.

The 16k sets come with syringes and CRISPR retina mods that genetically alter your eyes to have more pixels.

Yep. Even for 4k you already need an eye surgery. Everything above FHD is at most good for static scenes (like photos or timelapses). Useless for movies or so (a motion blur looks same at 480p as at 4k).

On article iFixit takes a look inside the Olympus PEN E-PL7 (18 comments in total)

Well, e-pl7 looks much better than e-pl1. In e-pl1 there are some soldered cables going to the mainboard preventing it to open completely (not all cables go through connectors) without unsoldering AFAIK. I disassembled it once incompletely (those fixed cables!) because the SD reader's RO contact broke - but I've broken the SD presence sensor additionally waaaaaaa! Need to do it again now. Meanwhile I've upgraded to omd-e-m1... but I'll re-disassemble again the e-pl1 when I have time :D

Robert Zanatta: $3.49 for an OTG cable, then use whatever USB device you want on your Android platform.

S7 comes with an OTG connector.

It's even more fun if you connect mouse and/or keyboard :D

Well. Doesn't it make more sense to just buy a reasonably pocketable m43 (or something similar) machine?

On article Lexar launches USB 3.0 card reader for XQD storage (19 comments in total)

XQD? I had to check wikipedia what does it mean, never heard it until now .... And ... Looks like another future-dead technology. And, well, Sony want to push something again? And who invented that "XQD" name for it? Completely unergonomic to pronounce (compared for example to "SD").

On article JPEG Committee contemplates adding DRM to image format (184 comments in total)

Well. Personally I'm more interested about somehow signing the metadata. I don't care about the content as I usually do not have problems if the images are shared somehow (but I can imagine some pro people need to have it locked too). It's usually that somebody just copy/paste the pictures and presents them as their own, even with a permissive licenses like CC.

1 month ago I've ordered sjcam m10. This Hero looks quite the same ... except it's 5x more expensive :D OK, it can do some 1440p, but I personally don't care about anything bigger than 720p.

jaxson: Is this earth rotation or moon orbiting, or a combo of both?

Both. But it's 28 days for Moon and 1 day for Earth. So mostly Earth in this case ^.^

peterharvey: These ultrawide angle zooms 7-14 mm with wide aperture at f2.8 is no lightweight; it is actually heavier than the flagship E-M1.

Well. Still 50% lighter than the current FT 7-14mm, and much less expensive too (1300 VS 2000)

In reply to:

RichRMA: The idea for this I think came from a movie where a similar camera was rolled into a tense stand-off situation to provide surveillance. I just can't remember what movie, but it was a few years ago.

Which one? The good one or the new one?
