    There is an interesting debate going on at DPreview where someone is making an interesting claim that 400' AGL is a guideline, not a law. From my reading of the FAA site, they make it sound like it's...

    My wife took her Phantom 4 Pro in a hard shell case as carry on luggage on Japan Airlines this past August with zero issues. The case has three inserts for spare batteries, which she also carried,...

    The big problem with DJI is that you don't have control of your own drone. You buy it, but DJI controls it (geofencing, forced landings, motors won't start, etc). Sadly, their drones are the most...

    Too many regulations create illicit markets. We saw it with alcohol prohibition in the 30s which led to the creation of organized crime. We see it now with drugs and probably soon with drones. When...

    My understanding is that the ISO varies with light level, due to the S-Log curve. The sensor has a 'native' ISO of 2000, but how it's processed in the front end electronics is logrithmic, not linear....

    Fascinating. Though I tend to suspect that 3D shot at anything other than the interocular distance of the human eyes would look odd or produce uncomfortable viewing sensations.

    One solution to slow rendering times from Premiere is nvenc. It's about 6-8 times faster than Adobe Media Encoder for the same h.264 file.
    In addition, if you have a Maxwell or newer GPU...

    Thanks for the hardware information. Good to keep in mind as I delve into this. 3D right off the timeline would be pretty slick.

    I wouldn't want to take 8 steps backward to the horrid quality of HDV cameras. I'm not so concerned about near-field right now. I'm just experimenting with getting the editing workflow figured out.

    FS7: 3D Stream from two FS7s?

    We recently installed a Sony VPL VW675ES DCI 4K projector in our screening room. Although not the reason we purchased it, it has 3D capability. For kicks, we screened a 3D movie on it and used some...

    It's a stepping stone, entry level 4K projector for small screens. But if you're looking for something that can drive 300" or larger, you have to spend a lot more dough. And yeah, another lamp.

    Sadly, it's not LASER and the lumens output is a lot lower than the projector I'm using now. But it's a baby step in the right direction.

    These rates and resolutions are getting crazy, but that's how technology marches on. Japan's NHK is already rolling out 8K broadcasting.

    Agreed. You need fast lenses, so DoF is going to be shallow anyway, so larger sensor would exacerbate the problem. But we're hitting a ceiling with resolving power of lenses for a given image circle...

    Crazy.. The US is barely eaking out 720P with a lot of compression artifacts. Japan is way ahead of the curve. When I was living in Kamata this summer, I had access to a full 1GB bi-directional...

    Those are looking somewhat interesting, but alas, the pricing is unknown. And 2000 lumens isn't what I'd call HDR-ready. Probably need ten times that brightness to equal the 1500-nit HDR displays...

    My front row is 8' from a 154" diagonal 2.35 aspect AT screen. 4K would be perfect at that size.

    In my experience, none of the lenses I've used can resolve 4K at f/16. Images look noticably softer...

    In my observation with LCD screens, it's the switching speed of the LCD that causes the blur. This can be seen by pausing the video. If it's sharp when paused, but blurs when playing, that suggests...

    I suppose the duration could be slowed to 20, 30 or 60 seconds? I know in S&Q it is possible to record 1 frame every second, but slower than that, I don't know.

    FS7: Single Frame Recording?

    Coming from a Sony PMW-EX1/EX3 line, which has a feature called Frame Record, I cannot find that feature on the FS7.

    This is not S&Q mode.

    It was handy for stop motion animation work.

    Is...
