    No. It's reasonably easy and it covers up for crap production design.

    Uh... no, that's not how calibration works.

    This is becoming a religious debate in which I'm not particularly interested; why on earth would I fake statistics?

    It's not particularly difficult to be the most popular single smartphone brand given there are a lot of smartphone brands out there. I have absolutely no iron in this fire, but just from the...

    Saw this at the last trade show I ever attended - the BSC show in London in early 2019.

    It's quite nice in that the LEDs are staged fore and after in the reflector, so you can vary the beam angle...

    Yes, very much so.

    In another life, I'd have worked in the art department.

    Is it bad that I actually recognise the shape of the muzzle flash in the poster frame... please, tell me I'm seeing things. Is that from where I think it's from?

    Personally I like to squint myopically and debate punching it up to full size, before punching it up to full size.

    What really annoys me is when they're not full frame rate, but try to fudge it by...

    I've always enjoyed pointing out how American film is not in the "world cinema" section in the UK.

    I also enjoyed pointing out how The King's Speech was part of a British film season when it was...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...
