That's what I worry about, too! So these lasers can instantly kill a sensor, but they're totally fine for my eyes? Sure...
I had a broadcast van owner tell me like ten years ago that he doesn't want his (Sony) cameras in the room with lasers. He insisted on shutting everything off and putting caps on the lenses before the laser show started. He said he had killed a 30K broadcast camera once in a laser show and he learned an expensive lesson.
Actually this episode the scorpions were more realistic than the last episode where they hit the dragon right away, first shot, then second shot, boom, dragon down. It is really hard to hit a flying object with a heavy weapon that is really slow to be turned. I'd say it's almost impossible. But still, the episode before this, they just did it twice in a row for plot reasons.
Of course Daenerys turning into the mad queen is not implausible, but the way it was written was stupid. It almost felt like a fan-fiction parody of GoT at some points.
I mean, who was it that Daenerys hated most? It was Cersei, definitely. But instead of going straight for her, she decides to almost let her get away and instead burn the whole city full of women and children. I would have loved it if she went for Cersei with rage and by accident burnt the whole city. But no, she totally forgets about Cersei and burns all the innocent women and children in the streets? Methodically eradicated them. That was just weird and unbelievable.
"No crew? Gotta work fast? 4K? Gotta look inconspicuous? Gotta Travel?"
Believe it or not, I would actually pick a Sony PXW-Z90 for that kind of work rather than a dslr with a bag full of photo lenses and a seperate audio recorder.
Sure you can get some nicer bokehlicious shots with the APSC sensor and an F1.4 lens, but those shots won't make your film, and you'll be missing a lot while changing lenses and fighting with your screwed together setup of camera and audio recorder.
Exactly, the new Apple Silicon use way less power than Intel chips. They can even get away with giving the M1 Max an aluminum cooler, only the M1 ultra needs a copper cooler. This is absolutely unthinkable for an Intel/AMD machine. I mean, an Intel machine with that much power needs a power supply which is larger than the whole Mac Studio, that should tell you something...
