every photo is derivative of another, so just let it slide..

drwho9437: Why not just use a power bank, cheaper, more capacity. 100% just as ugly.

many people have lots of these batteries already. I certainly do. They power monitors and other camera peripherals I own. its a no brainer really

I dont have a problem with this. Call me ignorant if you want but I think this will help with smart features in future software. Features like object recognition is a game changer in the new photoshop and its only possible by analysing millions of images. I think its like google pinging everyones phones for traffic conditions, thats how they get the traffic data we rely on every day.

Foskito: I like the idea, but why not armor $2000+ L-lenses instead?

Red has adopted RF mount for their smaller cameras. GDU’s core business is accessories for Red cameras

Just for some perspective. A friend of mine recently sold a set of 5 canon FD lenses for us$50,000. The cine rental company will have the glass rehoused into PL mount cine housings. They are highly sought after in cine for their vintage look flare characteristics.

biggercountry: I’m not sure I understand what is new or different about the Flexible ISO mode. Any mirrorless camera with video capability in a manual mode (with or without auto ISO) can do this (change exposure with the ISO setting). Is this something that’s peculiar to, or unique in Log capture? (Something I’ve never done, so I have no idea.)

@mike ran ok after a bit further reading, it looks like this function pertains only to the Cine EI mode. From what I can gather, flexible ISO allows you to adjust your ISO at will whilst your in Cine EI mode like an A7. Cine EI mode restricts you to going into the physical menu to change the base ISO from Low/High and cine ei quick allows you to change the ISO with the thumb wheel. Its quite confusing because thought the point of Cine EI was to keep locked at the native ISO for minimum noise. check this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3TWqb6LYTY&t=111s

Yes it’s the ability to choose your iso when shooting in slog instead of being locked to the 2 native iso modes of the sensor 800/12800

themountainphotographer: I would prefer it if some cameras (DSLR and MLess) were stills only. Sorry, I am totally disinterested in video and audio and don't want that in my camera.

It doesn’t matter what you want, all that matters is what sells, and cameras with more features and functions sell.

Easy solution, just get the camera you need for the style you shoot in. There are plenty of amazing cameras with audio monitoring options out there, and also plenty of good options for those who just leave the audio on auto and not require monitoring

wk253: The companies should make a difference in what the camera is for mostly. Photography or video. And then please a flip out screen for video and a flip up and down screen for photography. They just can't make up their mind. Photographers don't need a flip out screen. They hate it. But all those vloggers ask for it and because there are a lot of them , they get it their way.

The camera biz has already arrived at photo/video convergence. Removing multi functionality will never happen for obvious reasons

steelhead3: Not being a video shooter...will resolve be able to use the gyro information present in Sony cameras since it is now in the BM cameras?

@mikeran can you elaborate on the use of Gyroflow? Whats the advantage of using it over catalyst browser, which is pretty much a one click solution? Im hoping it can be integrated into FCPX for native gyro stabilisation.

northlarch: Well there you have it. Who could have guessed, a massive corporation lying to its users and prioritizing their subscription storage on top of their subscription software. LR Classic was a stop gap to transition users to paid storage, despite Adobe assuring us it was not. Also, despite all the naive users who defended Adobe saying Classic was not going away. They will continue adding the cool features to CC and neglecting Classic, like they always have to sucker us in the past with previous transitions.

Here’s a tissue.

If you want to try this without buying a filter you can use a clear screw in filter put it on the ground and then get streaks and tips black spray and spray it in the air over the filter so it falls evenly on the filter. It dries hard but can be cleaned off if needed. You can use black spray paint too, its more dense ,but you need a solvent to clean it off.

The legal speculations by people in this forum who know nothing about the specifics of the argument is truly hilarious.

The shuttering of final cut 7 and the introduction of FCPX is surely one of the great abandonments of filmmakers by any company in living memory. Final Cut 7 was a hard industry standard for film makers, it was basically split between Avid and Final Cut 7. The re-build of final cut to FCPX forced the vast majority of users to move over to Premiere, which is now the gold standard for film editing. It took several years for users to change platforms and I can tell you now, they aint going through that again. This is typical of Apples business model of integrating their software and hardware for better or worse. They are in the business of selling $4k computers and not necessarily $250 software.

Sutlore: their skills are great, no doubt, but the image quality could have been better if they shot with a proper camera with a marcro lens.

Yes the images would have been better if they were taken on 8x10 field camera by Edward Weston, but they weren't. Its an iPhone competition for the general public , thats the point.

What a time we live in that photos like this can be taken with a phone! Bravo to technology.

Karroly: A motorized zoom ? For what purpose ?
To sell more expensive lenses and more batteries ?

Lens zoom can be controlled with a rocker switch on camera handles so you don’t have to touch the lens while shooting and you can do smooth on air zooms. Sony cinema Line cameras all have this feature.
Not everything is a corporate conspiracy :-)
