    Unexpected computer death is a frighteningly realistic possibility when you have 2 small children. But even if I weren't living with 2 saboteurs, it seems prudent to have an instant hand-off backup...

    so, I just bought a mac mini m1 16gb 256gb. I realized I was experiencing mission creep since my current machine is largely fast enough and I really just need a backup in case my machine dies in the...

    I don't think the forum is prone to racist content. I'm not sure that the other chap's issue with the diversity thread was "racism" per se as much as failing to acknowledge the difference in...

    What's the issue with using polarisers along with eND?

    I'm not sure I buy your explanation for why the Venice didn't get eND. It makes sense, however I still feel like the advantages of stepless...

    they couldn't rotate it in with a wheel like on the c70 (with a slightly larger body)? I sorta thought IBIS might be the larger problem

    That's a really, really good question. I would imagine that big-league DPs would love to rack ND instead of aperture to maintain exposure. Is there some drawback of the technology that we're not...

    Yeah, I am hoping to buy an iMac with an M1X. The M1 would be a step up from what I'm currently using for sure, but I was thinking that whatever the more powerful processor in the line is could last...

    Panavision has a 4x5.65 eND filter called the Panavision LCND which uses electrical charge going into a liquid crystal to do variable density

    Does the FX6 have an olpf? The A7SIII has none. And is "-5" sharpening on A7SIII actually OFF? Has anyone compared the RAW files for detail?

    On Parler, they would verify your identity and give you a blue checkmark or something after you uploaded ID. Not saying we need to do that, but that's what they did

    I assure you, combatentropy, that your posts are read and appreciated.

    I think the idea of using real names is that if you behave like a troll, it could come back to harm your professional life....

    Of course, recording sound with an on-camera mic is arguably seldom if ever the right condition ;)

    Ah that's true. And I mean - polarization is how the thing works, isn't it? Though I wonder if IR contamination and refraction could be thoroughly eliminated with IR filtering and fancy glass...

    fx6 e-ND can do stepless adjustments, no? but only 7 stops max ND vs 10 stops on the C70

    it's a little annoying that neither of those cameras has an evf

    it's nice that they have a section on gut bacteria. until recently, this hugely important topic has been unknown or ignored

    Is that a common problem? Are you using the VND within the specified range?

    I threw in the towel a couple years ago and got VNDs because I decided that any quality issues with VND were a lesser...

    Most wedding photographers carry 2 or even 3 bodies at once with different zooms or primes. The cameras hang from a body harness when not in use. I suppose it's a photojournalist thing, too.

    I haven't noticed any issues with internal ND either, although I've never rigorously tested/examined them. And sure, it should be easier to manufacture little ones than big filters.

    But that...

    I don't think internal NDs are guaranteed to be neutral or to match each other.

    Though perhaps Sony eND is?

    This is exactly what I'm wondering, although I currently just record dual system sound when on gimbal and sync later.

    I'm a little concerned about the reliability of the system - both the wireless...

    Don't forget that the A7SIII has a great EVF too. Heat reliability has been good for me. Supposedly the Achilles heel is intense direct sunlight. There are probably effective ways to shield it,...

    I doubt there's a huge IQ difference between FX6/FX3/a7SIII although not being able to turn off NR in the A7SIII is so stupid.

    Yeah the zoom department for FF is pretty lacking. I have the 28-135...

    I got the 12-24 f/4 G version recently. The f/2.8 version seemed to be sharper and have better corners. But the distortion at the wide end seemed about the same on both lenses, which is my biggest...
