These Samyangs will sell alot. Keep the price low and sell even more.

When it is available for 129.95 it will mean true holographic storage is around the corner.

Frank C.: I wonder what camera he used when filming the moon landings

For the record, Here is Vivian Kubrick's (remember Dr. Floyd's daughter in 2001) recent tweet about the moon conspiracy.

PanchoVilla: British period drama? I think I'd rather read endless debates about mirrorless versus DSLRs than subject myself to a self-induced coma!

Barry Lyndon was originally a fictional novel by William Thackeray.

Class A: Kubrick was a peerless master.

Too bad, he did not finish "AI". Spielberg's realisation is not bad, but Kubrick's would have been breathtaking.

There is a series showing on Amazon Prime called "HUMANS" which explores some of the ideas Kubrick was thinking through when developing AI, the film, for many years.

lacix: I wonder if this movie could be done much easier with today’s digital technology – Maybe even with the popular A7S II 4K ?

I tend to think Kubrick wouldn't be satisfied, but I suspect, were he alive today he would own a7sII.

There is still a huge gap between the best digital today and film. That gap will probably narrow or vanish eventually, but not yet.

The "interview" where he "confessed" was the fake. It was a put on. No. THE GREAT SK didn't film a fake moon landing for NASA.

There is a funny comedy made a year ago called "Moonwalker," that spoofs the whole thing.

On article Bentley creates a 53 billion pixel car commercial (189 comments in total)

Maybe Bentley can outbid Lincoln to hire Maththew Mcconaughay (sp?) it can zoom in on him, rolling his figures even more. "i used to drive another car, but then Bentley sent me this one, I like it even better." Great ad.

It looks very usable and adaptable as a m4/3 cine or a Sony E cine. I'd especially like to see Sony full frame video examples using the ar7s ii. Maybe the next four they announce will run the gamut. My one Samyang fisheye is excellent to fantastic for the price on m4/3. I want to see all five and the prices.

Lee Saxon: Lord, are we now calling not-quite-6x4.5 "full frame medium format" because of the 33x44 sensor? So obnoxious and misleading. If we've got to call a medium format full frame I'd say it ought to be 6x6. Maybe 6x7, but that's starting to get into the "specialty camera" territory (which 6x9 and larger definitely is). If it turns out these lenses don't cover full 6x4.5 I'm going to roll my eyes pretty hard.

If it can't do IMAX video right out of the camera, I'm not interested.

So 75,000 will buy a nice camera system.

New Netflix Series, "The Hydraulic Press Killer!" He flattens his victims and makes mancakes with Syrup.

The comments here are too serious.

Busted cold, and they pretend it wasn't intended. For Shame.

They know how stupid most people are, or they think so.

In reply to:

rialcnis: Wonderful, but why no 4k+ video? No VR. That would have really been something. Lenses will cost a fortune. It's nice but only revolutionary for still shooters only.

Obviously they will end up with 4-6k that WON'T Overheat eventually. They had me with the " revolutionary" pr, so was disappointed. Had they done that I would forget every other video centric camera. The cost will be crazy with lenses but at least they won't need Auto.

On article All about that lens: Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III review (448 comments in total)
In reply to:

villagranvicent: Excellent review, down-to-earth without the recent over the top claims and headlines, seems like a solid performer but at a hefty price. I would love to see a real life comparison vs the FZ1000 or even vs m43 systems considering the cost is in the same ball park to see if paying twice the money is worthy.

And what 600mm lens did you get?

gsergei: A thumb down for this lens at $1300us. Guessing it will cost @1700cad. I will continue using my Oly 12/2 and FT 11-22/2.8-3.5 on the EM-1. Panasonic people keep shooting themselves in the wallet by providing an aperture ring incompatible with the Olympus bodies. No, thanks.

To say the lens is incompatible with Oly bodies was extreme. There were some saying this in comments. In manual mode how could this aperture ring not work? I can see this being a great lens for video.
