On article Canon patent shows curved sensor design (104 comments in total)

I'm surprised this hasn't been attempted already. Not only vignetting would be improved.

Will not ship to Canada.

maurotandoi: I suggest this device (no tons of dongles..just one adapter..problem solved?)

Do you have one of these in use? That bit of dead space above where the adapter plugs in looks awfully close to blocking another USB-C port (looking now at the 15" MBP). Hopefully, this was thought through in the design, assuming they correctly anticipated the spacing of ports in the new MBP.

The last step surely after this is to make them click together like Lego, for building DIY custom light panels.

About time.

On article Canon EOS M5: What you need to know (538 comments in total)

This could have been a killer photo and video camera, but the video is unfortunately behind the game compared to companies like Sony. Many smaller cameras are featuring 4K video, however, the M5 maxes out at 60fps in 1080p and the bitrate is probably not very high - no doubt a disappointment to some videographers. And although there is a micro HDMI port, it lacks a headphone jack, meaning no monitoring of audio coming into the camera.

Size? Output? CRI?

Apparently, state-of-the-art gimbals now have 32 bit encoder technology, such as this one by CAME-TV.

I'm not sure whether the DJI falls into this category since they are fairly tight-lipped about what goes on under the hood, although I'm fairly certain that DJI's better-known brand and reputation will help these things sell.

Does anyone know how many bracketed exposures this does on IOS - i.e., 3? 5? There's absolutely no detailed information on their website (of course). I guess this is a question for edee1337 below: "If you have any questions or requests, just let me know."

nimrod1212: If this app could only capture the the drawing as it's being created as a 30 FPS video file, I would have a perfect device to help with my teaching movies.

Yea, that's what I do already juggling various apps. Somewhat tedious. What I want is an all-in-one iPad solution.

nimrod1212: To my knowledge, no one has effectively shown the advantage of even 4K over HD for normal viewing distances, given human visual acuity (I read somewhere, in a blind trial an audience could not tell the difference), let alone 8K. I find the crop factor creatively useful when recording in 4K, but that's about it.

I tend to refer to HD / 4K, etc, terms of resolution not frame rate. But I agree with your comment, and so would many others, which is why 24 FPS (25 FPS in Europe) continues to be the standard for movie production.

"while they only draw 100 watts they deliver dimmable output of more than 400 watts" You can't get more energy out than you put in. I can only assume this is meant to be interpreted as "...more than 400 watts of tungsten-equivalent luminance.", which is somewhat vague in any case, depending on the particular incandescent bulb. I agree with TwoMetreBill. Not all manufacturers quote output in lumens, but they really should abide by such a universal standard as these newer technologies develop.

nimrod1212: I think Canon and perhaps other manufacturers have created confusion (certainly judging by comments here) by conflating the terms "flash" and continuous LED illumination.

I tend to agree. Just wish they'd stop using the word flash if that's the case.

Those last two contradictory comments completely make my point!

A similar concept to the Iographer case, which I have for the iPhone 6S Plus. This thing is more elaborate and adaptable for other smartphones, but the Iographer works pretty well.
