    Three to five years old is too old.

    Was that something other than a RAID-10? RAID-10 is faster, to the point where it tends to offset the need for more disks for the same space over a RAID-5 which...

    A question worth asking in that context is whether your Hi8 tapes are evaporated or particle. Evaporated tape theoretically has higher performance (higher coercivity leading to higher signal levels...

    I'd been posting here a little more frequently of late, but this sort of shenanigans puts me off.

    I just use ffmpeg, but then I'm a nerd.

    In this scenario you could get it to create basically-prores.

    It's a commandline app but it's not rocket science.

    ffmpeg -probesize 5000000 -i INFILE...

    I make mine out of collapsible laundry bins. They're semi-disposable at that point. I had some black fabric pieces made so I can selectively control the light output by velcroing things on and off.

    Almost certainly it will, although I'm not sure what the behaviour of the thing is as regards coming on at full brightness then expecting you to wind it down.

    Risky, I'd say. You're asking for a...

    Even 12A is too much for an XLR.

    To take it from first principles, which may be clear to many people but is worth reiterating, a 300-watt load is a 300-watt load. A lot of people are very keen on...

    I suspect we agree on a lot of things. I am a bit suspicious of any food advice that comes in the form of a diagram with little pictures. That triangle will tend to push people toward eating a lot of...

    To be fair, over here in the UK we're right behind you in terms of obesity, and the corn thing isn't nearly such a big deal as corn is not a staple crop in this part of the world. I don't think it's...

    I'm no stranger to sloth and I'll eat as many cookies as anyone. I also sit at a computer and write most days. Really, I should be a standard-issue tubby nerd. I'm not because I watch what I eat. I...

    One of the things that concerns me about this is that right now they're prioritising older and more vulnerable people - for good and understandable reasons. I think it's pretty clear many situations...

    I don't see masses of it, but it's around. The way YouTube tries to figure out what you want - "the algorithm" - seems to treat different people very differently. It seems very bad at de-prioritising...

    Canon once loaned me that lens and a C300 body.

    Nothing else. Lens. Body. No rods. No supports. That was the demo kit.

    I did manage a shot of the craters on the moon, but it was precarious.

    Something I'm seeing a lot is that big, well-funded productions are back at work, but not much else is.

    Little independent shorts and music videos and the like aren't really happening because they...

    It might be worth pointing out that a Nanlite Forza 60, or similar, really isn't a particularly powerful light. It depends entirely what you're intending to do with it, of course, but the company's...

    I found an old manual for my Amiga 4000 the other day.

    Possibly I should keep that as a memento. I've still got the Amiga somewhere.

    To answer the original question again, no, because LTO is way, way, way too noisy and power hungry for use in a camera. Because there's no rotating head, it achieves its write speed, in part, by...

    Is it permitted for thoroughly middle-aged people to enjoy Marvel movies in any capacity?

    If so, I might wave a small flag for Guardians of the Galaxy, which contains instants of actual wit.

    I'm not sure which price is more hilariously overambitious.
