    It's a simple solution: consider line pairs alternating black and white. That's effectively Nyquist 2x sampling. If we add another white line between the black lines, so black white white black white...

    Right on man. I found the Ronin-m was decent, however the form factor didn't work for me, especially when needing to set it down. These one-handed gimbals are excellent, liberating tools in so many...

    Here's my 2x sampling simulation (2 pixel black & white pairs) which is sampling = to the Nyquist Limit (2x), showing extreme aliasing when rotated (created in Photoshop):

    @Eric- it doesn't appear you're reading my posts completely? Again, the two 'top' cameras I'd purchase if it made sense are the ARRI Alexa Mini LF and Sony Venice. I have said the Alexa Mini LF isn't...

    We discussed at length in 2017: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?356356-Actual-Camera-Resolution-Before-Aliasing

    It's a 3/2 sampling to deal with Nyquist & aliasing (along with matching...

    From the original post:



    We could add to the list, e.g. providing True Resolution (Detail) for the output, e.g. ~6K sensor producing Nyquist Limit 4K detail without aliasing. That's really...

    Why make it personal? Why not focus on facts and debate those, with facts, instead of ad hominem? Comments are made based on experience and supported by evidence, logic, and viewing trends and...

    @Run&Gun- looks like you dig your gear for your needs, and it works well for you. Holding one's arm outstretched with a ~20lb weight for a long period of time is going to put a lot of stress & wear...

    @egproductions looks pretty good, thanks for sharing. The 5D4 & EOS R apparently have the same sensor, along with a gimbal make excellent tools for stable capture in a wide range of conditions...

    The latest iPhones have vastly more compute power while using very little energy compared to the top cinema cameras- Alexas, VENICE etc. Valid point on connectivity though that didn’t stop...

    @Liam Hall- the Competent Camera list is about good enough stable in-focus footage with good audio. I had much of those features you listed on the C300 II. In the end it was too big & heavy for...

    You're right, why stop at the sensor block? I was recently thinking, what is the practical limit in this universe for the smallest possible camera? Yeah, thinking down to the Planck Length, then...

    Have you shot running forwards, backwards, sideways, any direction you wish with a one-handed camera rig of any kind? It's pretty frickin' awesome to get stable footage and liberating too!
