This father was guilty the second he told his wife that they would be pointing fingers at him. The type of man who is capable of being ARRESTED for harassment is obviously capable of doing this sort of thing.
I didn’t know that dangerous prisoners were allowed to communicate freely on WWW…..
The impact power can be same as shaking a child, it is even worse for babies because their skull fragile development state. Just calculate impact forces for a 6 month baby head hitting 1 inch from table with a thin soft surface and typical shaking a few years old kid from middle body (not from the head) where the neck functions as dampener and head movement is vertical (around X axis).
And then just step back and start thinking, how humans has evolved in tens of thousands of years…. And there comes the problem, you either trust the science or then you have only a blind faith.
What it benefits? Private corporations gets income from each prisoners in private prisons or county jails etc.

Sorry but there really isn’t smartphones what would be perfect.

Do you know what difference is between bakter, virus and parasite? Good… Now do you know what difference is example between computer virus, trojan, rootkit and spyware? Too bad….
There is no viruses for Linux, there has been few proof of concepts of rootkits but not working ones.
Oh please, come to praise third party service when they offer you over 2 Terabytes with privacy and strong encryption and easy of use.
Sony A7s isn’t DSLR. It is MILC = Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera.
Get in ideal conditions and even bad camera starts looking totally different.
Movies are processed as “4k” and in soon at much higher than 4k…. They go even up to 8k and downsample it to 4k to get better quality as 4k offers.
But movies shot in film have been for decades “4k”. Like the original James Bond movies films have over 4k resolution and can be scanned with a 4k scanners.
The typical task has been that movie is shot in 4k, then downsampled to 2k to add effects and then upsample it back to 4k. You really don’t notice the difference even in movie theather.
RED did some testins and super 35mm is about “3.5k” but then VistaVision 35mm is about 4.8k
and when going to 65-70mm you get 6.9k and 9.3k.
Kodak said in late 90’s that 35mm film for cameras (normal photography) goes up to 6.5k.
But that is just the film itself. Add there post processing, digitalization and then finally projection and we are back to 2k-4k range on common film resolutions what have been used since 50’s.
That I am expecting from Canon. They have been dead in the water in sensor technology and quality for few years now.
And I believe they have not founded current sensor development but focused entrily to that new sensor tech to actually get it out and beat Nikon and Sony.
Only for a moment. When you are shooting with RED or similar, you pay for service where the closest supplier runs at your location with new one and gets your camera to repair and you continue shooting.
And we are really talking in hours service times, even if service would need to fly it to middle of Africa.
The 30min border isn’t such a problem at all, until you suddenly hit to situation where you are shooting alone a show or want to shoot some special situations like landscape and speed later it.
But as you said, heat consideration in mind, Panasonic is awesome on that area but they don’t have IBIS (but neither does A7s) like Olympus has.
The A7s just doesn’t seem to be competitor to GH4 by specs what is many professional or serious hobbyst demanding.
Olympus has not been going to Retro by look, but by control design. So few really value cameras controls because they have use to now to twiddle them. Like look most DSLR shooter, they take test shots and then they check results and twiddle camera settings and then start shooting and after every couple shots they lower camera and adjust something and then continue shooting. Or even worse, they check just taken shots from the LCD!
Shoot more, twiddle less, you enjoy more and get better shots.
Olympus offers best JPEG out of the camera, simply. Colors accuracy, white balance, microcontrast, sharpness and noise quality are in totally own league where not even Fuji can reach.
Olympus has used Sony sensors in E-M5 and E-M10 but in E-M1 they use improved Panasonic sensor and they have own A/D chip for that doing the magic.
4k is useless until it really gets standardized by single de-facto resolution. There is no televisions worth buying or even most peoples living rooms have space enough to get a 4k TV.
The 4k is a gimmick what to sell. Sure we need 4k content, but seriously there has been not a single reason from Olympus to make a 4k video capability to camera whats reason is to be tool for photographers, instead they made better than enough FullHD video to situations where video is required. Sure fancy wannabe video shooters are there nitpicking the video low bitrate, but the real problem isn’t in video quality but its limited 30p what causes flickering in countries with 50Hz electricity network when shooting under fluorescent lights.
And sure the GX7 viewfinder is fancy, but thats it! Unless you are actually laying on ground shooting macro you don’t really need it. In street photography or other situations where you want to draw less attention, tilted LCD is much much better than lowering camera just few centimeters down and looking down camera at face. The other benefit from the tilted EVF (other than in macro) is if you want to do studio shooting and look model with both eyes over camera on tripod. But if you really need to tilted EVF, it is better to buy as external like VF-2 or VF-4 what Olympus offers to all cameras with the compatible accessory port and it is way better than what GX7 has then.
And for small size, Olympus has the E-PL line if you really want camera without EVF taking space.
Panasonic does exactly that it tries to add new fancy features what really are not needed or usable for most consumers.
For professionals who now need to start creating 4k content for competition reasons and for future, Panasonic GH4 is better what Sony A7s is for most of them (low-light situations Sony takes clear lead because ISO).
It seems that the problem with Olympus is that they made E-M1 too good and they needed to add stupid artificial limitations to it like 30p video instead offering 30p+25p.
Olympus designed 4/3 standard with Kodak and then made from it a newer m4/3 standard with Panasonic. Olympus knows it needs to give other manufacturers to bring own gear focused specialized groups. Like now JVC has brought a Super 35mm video cameras using m4/3 bajonet, designed for videographers. Olympus focus to photographers but knows there are people who want to shoot hybrid so they offer current required FullHD with good bitrate and best image stabilization on the market (excluding steadycam). Or Blackmagic Cinema Camera, with uncompressed high quality what not even Panasonic or Sony can touch.
For many it looks like Panasonic doesn’t know where to go, they do more these hybrids what are focusing more to videographers than photographers. They add nice features what are good only for minor consumers. But it is nice that Panasonic is doing that because those who need it, can get it instead looking around m4/3 format and end up elsewhere.
But the best thing is, you can focus to lenses and get body from multiple manufacturers to task you need. It is win-win situation to m4/3 users.
And knowing that E-M1 and E-M5 or E-M10 sensor difference isn’t noticeable (E-M5 and E-M10 share same Sony sensor, E-M1 use Panasonic sensor, but E-M10 use same A/D processor as E-M1), you only really need to choose between few technical factors like:
- E-M10 has built-in flash
- no accessory port (not usually even needed unless you want external EVF for some reason)
- no weather proof sealing (you can still shoot normally in light rain but….)
- same EVF what E-M5 has
- E-M10 has a WiFi (check the features using it)
- In Body Image Stabilization is 3-axis instead 5-axis, but still awesome and only better are in E-M5 and E-M1 when it comes to Image Stabilization.
- Max shutter speed 1/4000 instead 1/8000. Can sound useless but often in bright conditions or fast motions you need that one extra stop, unless you want to use 2-3 stop ND filter with fast lenses.
The lens field of view scale to m4/3 is best what is there, even full frame cameras don’t have same range when it comes to focal length from super wide angle to long tele.
Going to E-M10 “real problem” is that you soon want more, so you start buying more lenses and learn shooting totally differently than how you would with DSLR as what you see is what you get.
And trust, that the DSLR size and weight isn’t worth in gold, instead going to small and light like E-M10 you can enjoy more about the photographing and experience the moment instead twiddling around with settings or screen as with DSLR it is too often required.
I was hoping that they would be a trick photos where it is written they are taken with cameras and then revealed later that they were instead taken with smartphones with some extra lenses etc.
I didn’t even look those datas until browsed first round.
In few situations phone has benefits. But the camera market has been halted for long time because Nikon and Canon and peoples obsession to DSLR. Like what really has changed the photographing possibilities are simple technical improvements like In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), Mirrorless design, Live Bulb, Electronic View Finder and A/D chips improvements so JPEG are so good that there is no reason to shoot RAW because colors and white balance are captured correctly and sensors exposure range is now so wide that there is enough details in both ends. Still the other half of the great improvements are taking step back to old 70’s camera designs where photographer doesn’t need to loosen a grip to adjust camera but can do it without thinking and checking results on backscreen.
Mirrorless cameras has gone to level where “What you see is what you get”, what no DSLR or smartphone (or P’n’P and compacts) have managed to offer ever.
It has nice composition, subject moment but to me as well it isn’t one of the best. For my taste it is just too flat and multidirectional instead giving impact to viewer direction, what it tries to do with those eyes.
Processed shots usually look anything else than real, that is the “magic” in them that they look different as people are use to see things. Capturing a moment what would look very typical or normal in video or seen. That is the main idea in the photography that you freeze the moment and you change it so it makes you thinking. And that moment can be long time but then it is “compressed” in time to single frame.
Controlled depth of field is one of the most important feature in photography because it allows shooter to lock viewer focus to specific subject and isolate it or do it other way around and set everything sharp so the photo is restless. You can’t do it well in post process, if at all (blurring requires lots of work if wanted).
The other is controlled shutter speed, freeze the specific millisecond lasting moment or let the movement flow and compress time as you couldn’t see it.
Still you can take shot without any post processing and it could look amazing.
To me, when people start combining multiple shots to get subjects removed or add them they move the photos from photography to art. Where I do draw a line is a HDR, what is just on it.
….but if your tool is incapable to help you in the work process, it isn’t a good tool.
Like with smartphones, typical problems are fixed aperture, fixed focal length, small body and weight (can be benefit too in very tight places like trying to see what is on area where you can’t reach but you can just fit your hand in), no dials and buttons to quickly adjust required three elements for good exposure and composition.
Still camera what is in the bag (or pocket) stays in the bag (or in the pocket). You need to be moving, exploring, shooting and working your ass off and get the shot correctly in the moment and not in post process.
Thats why we have totally different kind cameras and thats why SLR came so successful because it was possible to modify camera to work as required. And now MILC (especially 2x crop sensor cameras) is killing the DSLR, in the way that DSLR moves more to same status as medium format cameras are today. Great tools in small and light package without compromises what smartphones, point’n’shoot and compacts has.
There were proof of concepts…. But doesn’t work anymore, like few days or week after release.
It isnt a fork, Android use Linux OS. But still true there is no rootkits in wild for Linux or viruses for android (etc).
You do know that since Windows Vista you have to:
just start typing the name of the app you want to launch. It will appear and then autocomplete. Then you just press Enter.
You do? Right? What? No YOU DIDN’T!
Only thing what changed was that instead getting a small list of most commonly used applications (most users don’t have many applications to run) and last opened files in them (Windows 7 feature) while you still maintain connection to task what you are doing.
And the menu is small and compact sized to fit to mouse cursor and good hand movement speed with mouse or finger on touchpad so it is very user friendly.
But then someone at Microsoft thought that instead being efficient and usable, it needs to be FULL SCREEN and require you to roll your eyes searching your wanted tile what can be different looking at that time. And instead just having them in categories, you need to remember the name of it so you can search it by typing application name.
Seems like you are the one of your kinds who spent 30 minutes in start menu because start screen is so much faster by your opinion.
But don’t care, you don’t understand so you can’t understand the logic in reasoning so you can just be.
Not trimmed but cut…. They probably cut 80% off from the source code and added 10-20% lines more to make it run.
Seems that A7s is strike against Panasonic GH4. The sad thing is just that Sony still has to deliver the lenses to A7 lineup.
Both of those are a consequence of how the X-Trans sensor is demosaiced…it has some built-in noise-reduction, even in the RAW. Ultimately, though, both will give you relatively similar images, and both of them will be great.
Didn’t latest firmware fix that RAW didn’t get it? At least they got off that “watercolor” problem few weeks ago.
I wouldn’t get hung-up on the EVF difference. When the E-M1 came out, it was universally lauded as the best EVF. The Fuji trumps it by a pip (it’s a few % bigger, I think), but they’re again both fantastic.
The EVF in X-T1 is few percentage larger yes, but only in horizontal space and it is like one or two millimeter all together, so really nothing to even mention.
The E-M1 has the best image stabilization in the industry, which will give you 3-4 stops worth of improvement, so that will go a long way to negate the low-light advantage of the Fuji, and is amazing if you ever want to try adapted lenses. It means that Olympus’ lenses tend to cost less, too, which is a side benefit.
The IBIS in Olympus E-M1 allows to take handheld 1-4 seconds shots. It is just unbelievable until you are shooting stars or moon and because stabilization system the problem is earth rotation what cause stars and moon to get motion blur on longer than 2 second exposures.
The X-T1 apparently improves a lot on Fuji’s greatest weakness, which was AF performance. I imagine they will be both be relatively similar, here. With the right lens, I imagine the E-M1 will be slightly better in AF-S. They both have on-sensor phase-detection, but I think the E-M1 only uses it for continuous-AF.
The AF is still better in E-M1, but the AF isn’t bad on X-T1 anymore like it was on previous Fuji cameras. But the sad thing is that E-M1 use PDAF only on AF-T (tracking) mode, but you don’t really need as contrast based AF is more than enough to capture fast action (subjects running toward/away you and diagonally too).
The E-M1 is one of the most responsive cameras on the market, and a lot of people like it because they can just lift, shoot, and rest easy knowing that they will have captured the moment. I personally think that the touchscreen is a huge benefit for focusing – to be honest, I don’t even really want autofocus anymore if I don’t have a touchscreen. Moving the focus point with pointer buttons or a joystick feels slower than manually focussing to me, and when you focus/recompose you shift the plane of focus and lose critical focus if you’re using a fast lens.
That is the huge benefit of E-M1. The dials and buttons are positioned so well and designed with the system that you don’t need to take eye off from EFV to adjust all the needed functions or even think about adjusting them. Just look the screen/EFV and when it looks good, that is what you get. That is what makes E-M1 so great to shoot because even with X-T1 you need to look dials settings too often before shooting.
But the huge benefit with E-M1 is the face detection and capability to focus to closest eye or selected eye. It just makes so blazing fast to do street photography when you can be sure that the eye(s) are in focus. Sure you can adjust the focus area as well via touch screen (what is very easy) but I prefer just to rotate dials to move AF point without requiring to loosen a grip or look the screen.
and with macro photos you barely even want autofocus. At least that’s my experience.
It actually has huge benefit to have AF when doing macro. When shooting small objects, their movement can be relatively as high as would be when shooting sport. Like running ant on 2:1 ratio is hard to capture even with f/5.6 DOF and with E-M1 it is just amazing combination when you get touchscreen+ultra-fast AF+2xDOF and you really get small subjects easily captured without moving camera.
And then there are Olympus sensor cleaning system what is top of the class like their IBIS what just gives reason to not worry when swapping lenses in different environments (Just remembering to turn camera Off and On when swapping).
What is great with X-T1 is the possibility to have EVF turned off when IR detector isn’t activated. So you have LCD and EVF turned off to save battery. While on E-M1 either one stays on (hopefully they get firmware update to that too!).
And the DoF and ISO benefit between E-M1 and X-T1 is 2/3 stops, what is way less than it is between APS-C and FF or FF and m4/3.
And finally, Fuji cameras blows highlights way too easily, where E-M1 has like 1-2 stops better recovery possibilities for highlights and similar for shadows from where to pull details. It is just something crazy how Fuji cameras manages highlights so bad way.
