  • You can drop clips at any frame rate into the same sequence.  If you don't alter the clip's speed/duration and you don't use the "interpret footage" option for the clip, then the default when you ...
  • I can't speak for other editing software, but here's how it works in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6: If you just drag and drop a clip onto the timeline, it will play at normal speed when you view it in the ...
  • One of the things I really liked about the GH5 is that it still uses the same batteries as the GH4 and even the GH3.   So when I bought my GH5 I ended up with two chargers: the new one from the ...
  • I agree that this would be the preferred delivery format.   It's basically up to the device to present the video - if you play a 4:3 video on a 16:9 device then it should centre the video in the ...
  • That's not really a practicable solution in my opinion.   The easiest thing to do is to get the dummy battery and just wire it to a USB connector so you can use it with a USB power pack.   The ...
  • Is Windows 10 available in 32-bit?   I can't imagine why anyone would want to run it that way unless they had awfully old hardware.
  • It's a problem because people are starting to discover the extent of the data collection (for example, people in this thread expressed disbelief that Facebook could track you even when you're not ...
  • See this thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4270113 , which is still on the first page of the video section and which has exactly the same thread title as yours.
  • I'm highly appreciative of the small size and light weight of the system even when I'm using the Panny 100-400mm lens...
  • One of the things that Grace was famous for was carrying an 11-inch piece of wire that she used to demonstrate what a nanosecond was. Interestingly, after telling him that I taught a computer ...
  • The entry for COBOL in my (very old) copy of The Devil's DP Dictionary : COBOL n.  [Origin obscure: possibly from cobble "to botch" or cobbing "a way to punish sailors".  Now assumed acronym for CO ...
  • Replied in G9, and/or GH5
    OK, I have to go back and retract my statement, because by the time I got the GH5 out and attached a non-native lens to it I had forgotten that you were asking about video mode.   So I re-tested ...
  • Replied in G9, and/or GH5
    Looks like panning mode is available on my GH5.   I even set the focal length to 300mm as in your attached image and it was still available. It seems to me that it ought to be available on your G80 ...
  • Well, of course.  If you tell other sites to use your Facebook identifty to log on, then whenever you visit those other sites they will send the authentication request to Facebook.   And of course ...
  • Perhaps. But people like tcg550 need to realize that it's not just "tin foil hat" paranoia in order to be motivated to do something about it. Otherwise, they will blissfully continue letting ...
  • No, you don't .   The mere fact that your browser has loaded the icon and its associated code means that it can (and does) have access to session information and can (and does) send data back to ...
  • The problem is that if you're a Facebook user then you have to enable all that stuff for Facebook's domain in order to use the app.  And once you've done that, all of the Facebook content that ...
  • Quote from: Gizmodo : “Everything people do, either on Facebook directly or on sites that have a Facebook ‘Like’ button, reveals information about them to Facebook,” adds Schneier. “That’s an ...
  • The vast majority of people are "content consumers", and they are quite happy with relatively unsophisticated apps which essentially just present data and allow some degree of interaction. There's ...
  • I assume that this means they're planning on migrating to something with the same architecture as the SOC platforms they use on their mobile devices.   That would probably make sense. They ...
