This social network is no better or worse than Facebook.....and they don't have the one thing that Facebook has over them: ubiquity.
"what our everyday cameras will be capable of in 10 years"
I would say that may happen even sooner with a smartphone already capable of shooting 4K. Ray Kurzweil says that innovation happens at an exponential rate because multiple innovations tend to help eachother make a single innovation possible.
In 10 years, I wouldn't be surprised if we had managed to get quantum computers into smartphones.
I'm all for a social network for filmmakers, but the concept is inherently flawed since it focuses on the fragmentation of other networks. Since it's going to take lots of convincing, you're better off just going with the most ubiquituous social network (Facebook at the moment) and building a network that way. People don't want to add yet another website that they have to log into just to network with other filmmakers. They want those options built into what they already use.
Sigma is missing out on the cine market with that electronic aperture and short focus throw.
I owned a set of AI-S, sold most of them, then begrudgingly bought a set of Rokinon Cine DS lenses (24T1.5, 25T1.5, 50T1.5, 85T1.5) because no one offers a reasonable competitor. Sigma would do well to fill that Rokinon niche because I am sure this new line of glass is better suited to a high resolution, sharp image.
Nikkor hasn't released a truly manual lens in quite a while if I am not mistaken. Their AI-S line is OLD. I'd love it if they brought their image quality to that world as well.
Zeiss should create a cine line for its Otus stills glass. The CP is based on the ZF design, which while sharp and creamy, is nothing compared to an the Otus or even an Ultra Prime
I wonder if a cinevised Otus would be sharper than a Master Prime with the same FoV.
WTF? Are you serious? Next time, think before you reply. My reply is perfectly valid. So tired of internet trolls.
No problem. I am merely going by what Art Adams said in his article about color charts. He knows more than me about this subject (as I used to use an X-Rite to get color calbiration myself) but thats' what Art said. My point remains, though: Nothing outperforms the DSC Labs stuff for cine use.
