After watching this I have to use quote from classic (Futurama): ”Shut up and take my money!”

What about battery, can BLH-1 batteries from e-m1 mk3/X used with this camera? Manual seems to indicate that no?

On article DPReview TV: Sony a1 review (680 comments in total)

Jordan is probably not used to megabytes: when talking about compressed vs. uncompressed file sizes he still counts in megabits as video people do :D
A9 and now this A1 are quite impressive but handling leaves lot to be deserved. Has anyone in Sony tried to turn these locking dials with gloves on? Can't understand this fixation on locking dials, is this inadvert movement of dials really problem?

”You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!”
Thanks for fulfilling it!
Enjoyable video as always, this macro shot comparison shows diffraction effects very well.

Correct use of vodka to clean lens: take sip of it and then breathe on lens and wipe it off!

DiffractionLtd: People complain America has a gun problem. American has a sub-standard human problem. Too many people are not even human, are prone to violence, are incapable of living in civilized society. Homogeneous European societies, formerly uniformly law-abiding and civilized (apart from the odd holocaust and ethnic cleansing) are now becoming less homogeneous (schisms appear in society) and more violent. Witness: London just passed New York in-terms of murders. Never thought you'd see that, did you? Guns at hand to these creatures are a problem, and the U.S. does need tougher gun laws. So don't blame a cop, one of hundreds of thousands doing their job, for mistaking something for a gun in a situation that appears his life could just as easily have been in real danger. By the numbers, this kind of thing is bound to happen, just like car accidents on busy freeways.

"Witness: London just passed New York in-terms of murders."
Meh? What source is used for this statement?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_London
2017: 130 murders
2016: 110
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_New_York_City
2017: 290 murders
2016: 335

Third photo is ruined by water on lens front element, but her photos are probably OK in this regard.
With strong wind i'd prefer dorky solution over hat umbrella: after a while headache and sore neck would be granted with latter.
