ikan154: "find X" sounds like a mathematical problem to me... (@ o @)

@marabunta
There's only three of them so far, plus one short feature ;-)

BobT3218: Leica began using 35mm film in the 3:2 landscape aspect ratio about 100 years ago. Since then, this format has become so ubiquitous that many would never consider using anything else. However, now we have a whole generation growing up where the phone portrait aspect ratio is the most natural.

Unsure what you mean by "phone portrait aspect ratio"... my smartphone shoots 4:3 by default, screen is 16:9 and many from the new generations have a 18:9 screen.

DiffractionLtd: Is that title supposed to be what passes for English these days?

Cheer up, they just verbed a noun! XD

jl_smith: Another great video -- You know I was hesitant when DPR hired you guys (only because of the 1 video/week pacing -- what would you cover?) but nice to see some videos not covering reviews.

I think the next natural progression in BEGINNER video is audio quality -- shotgun vs. lavalier vs. boom mic vs *ugh* on-board camera mic.

I say this because I think it's probably one of the biggest annoyances of mine and one of the easiest fixes to really improve video quality (easy unless you're trying to sound shape a room full of hard tiles, hard surfaces and 90 degree corners everywhere-- what a PITA..which is why I got cheap $20 lavalier mics that mostly solve that problem).

Recording orchestras and small ensembles, lavaliers are not really my field of expertise... I've got some flutist friends, but they do just audio, so wireless is not a necessity.

@MrBrightSide

You think 22$ is not cheap enough for a microphone?
Do you have any idea how much real microphones cost? :-/

AbrasiveReducer: I believe Bokeh Master is derived from the German, "Hernia-meister."

@HFLM bokeh master -> heavy lens -> hernia (I suppose) ;-)

A pragmatic preening preface to a previously unpreviewed product...

I would have changed the name, though...

Camera Conspiracies: Simplifying, but changing the name from Weapon to DSMC2? Makes sense.

WOMD was better? :-/

I'm not participating in the 2018 WC, does it mean I don't need this phone? </s>

Mmmh... I just love the color of "recovered blown highlights" in the morning...

kreislauf: but what about equivalent apertures?

You're forgetting "equivalent distances"...

In reply to:

CekariYH: So, what would a be the right words to replace "lens compression"?
Lens perspective background distance distortion (LPBDD)? :-)

"Position"

Bassman2003: I think the larger takeaway is to focus more on subject distance than anything else when you are shooting. Forget about calling it whatever term you want.

Mind the cliff's eEEEEEEEeeeedge...

Is it possible to turn that Neural Damage thing off?

LensBeginner: Uh... 4K should be around 8 MP, more or less due to the fact that various standards exist.

If there is a dedicated camera for video, and it records 4K, why making it 16 MP?

Binning with non-square pixels? alternate line reading? ..?

I've seen a lot of cellphones/cameras where video is a crop of stills.

If the camera module is dedicated, then they could simply use a wide(-er, -ish) lens that doesn't cover the whole sensor.

Cost-saving, very practical.

I don't know... JurijTurnsek's explanation seems more logic.
Oversampling would require quite a bit more processing power, with obvious downsides on autonomy.
