Why did camcorders get so uninteresting? Pictured costs $1800 and can't even shoot 4k 60p.

People are shooting movies for theaters on cell phones! Why doesn't Sony make these devices more useful to filmmakers?
>>
>>71598956
because they are not made for filmmakers in the first place
>>
>>71598956
They are, the thing is that the good stuff is not available to mere mortals (aimed at broadcast mostly) and for freelance they're pushing the high end alpha line.
If you're a serious film maker you're buying equipment from Arri or RED anyway.
Handheld camcordes are obsolete because the only people that are still buying them are boomers.
>>
>>71598956
because the amateur prosumer filmmaker niche has been taken by dslrs. midrange camcorders are outdated and lacking in customisation and settings. possibly due to poor sales from everyone just using their smartphones, so there is less need for innovation and they stagnated.
>>
>>71600083

But DSLRs suck for filmmaking. Sure the lenses are nice, but everything else about them is awkward and requires cables and workarounds. The appeal of a cell phone to Steven Soderbergh is that it gets things done efficiently. Camcorders are outdated because the manufacturers are ignoring the form factor.

BTW, all are iPhones?

My computer is own built x86-64, I compiled my OS to push the FPS to the limit, and now I think the last bottleneck is my monitor.
I don’t want to use any legacy cruft, compat layers or multilib, but even Ubuntu want to drop the 32 bit support.
So recommend me some good display with 64 bit support, I don’t want to loose any performance.

I believe it, but can I get a quick explanation on why it is so? I don't see why quantum computers would have to be ASICs.

Not possible. Some programs can't possibly be parallelized, since each step of the program depends on the result of its immediate predecessor.

It's not GIMP's fault Linux distributions are shipping retarded fontconfig defaults that are explicitly overriding GIMP's request to disable sub-pixel rendering.
There's no such issue with the stock fontconfig configuration which is e.g. included with the Flatpak version of GIMP or the Windows build.

That appears to be the option remaining to the theoretical individual in this situation, as he has already used the ~200G worth of patterns/dicts at his disposal.

>You are an easily manipulated and naive person, so you just don't see it happening.
Coming from a person that does not think science is a crock of shit bundled by think tanks for profits, that's gold.
And what about special relativity and Einstein's theory? Why are there suddenly issues with it? Mainly because we're still merely stabbing in the dark and this scientific method has us fooled that it's more accurate.
Forget that most of science is built up on millennia of what was religious doctrine though. That never happened.
You know that Newton was an alchemist too? He ended up laying the foundations for many of crucial theories of physics.
You need to read a book. Particularly a history book.

Also this show (pic - watch it, it's good) is always flirting with questions of philosophy dealt with by religions in the past. You need questions to find answers. Science might provide answers in detail, but it also is afraid of asking some questions more fundamental to people such as "why am I here" in a broader or more loose form.

Why are you afraid of asking broad general questions? Science needs inspiration to begin asking detailed questions. I think it's dangerous to disregard it's biggest stimulator which was religion.

>Funny.. I thought the higgs boson was only discovered recently.
The higgs boson may have been a speculative and unobserved element, but it was definitively born out of observations. Science is not only observational, but can be used to make accurate predictions, and thus, the theorisation of the higgs boson and subsequent discovery of it is definitively science.

Combining the 23-bit mantissa with the sign bit, I've always considered mastered 32-bit floating point output to be equivalent to 24-bit integer, even if it is technically able to represent almost arbitrary small values. Most of the time it's coming from a 24-bit ADC anyway.
