    The point of the Netflix list is for productions contracted for Netflix specifically. So it does not affect outside productions directly.

    In addition to well-funded narrative series and features, Netflix also produces non scripted work and documentaries. By their nature these productions are smaller and benefit from small, unobtrusive...

    For whatever reasons, the Zeiss’ Standards T2.1 lenses have never caught on in the wintage lens popularity like Baltars or K35s. Maybe because they don’t have that vintage a look?their contrast was...

    I don't know the details on the design and construction of Codex media. AFAIK they are excellent, but I don't know details.

    Those three reviews all appear to have come from the same person. Panasonic has actually been trying to track this down, as we don't have record of this in our service dept. One of our first promo...

    P2 cards are basically a small quad-card RAID system in a shell, complete with buffering and redundancy. They're overbuilt to hell & back.

    Pretty much on target. These functions are in active development. I will not that for zoom controllers there are two angles of attack underway, one from Panasonic and the other from 3rd party...

    This is basically it. What a drives listed specs are and how they actually perform are generally two very different things. This is because of purposefully obtuse and limited detail in the specs....

    This really isn't true. I won't go into all of the details, but suffice to say that at Convergent Design we had to do a lot of tolerance testing on media. It's simply a lot more complicated than...

    You missed the EVA1 in there. Only $6495 and you can use the 4K recording on the SD cards if it's in All-I400 10-bit 422.

    It's important to note that just because a camera is 4K or even 4K 10-bit...

    If memory serves, RED didn't actually deny this as much as they never acknowledged it. Big difference.

    Looking back at what you wrote, I see you reported that CoreSWX rated the PTap at just 1amp, or 12w. This is not correct unless they’ve changed things. When the battery was released it was 2amp, or...

    Would that be the regular Nucleus motor or the little motor that comes with the Nucleus N? The Nucleus N motor is much smaller than the regular Nucleus motor.
