  1. I love my Helios 135mm. I could dump modern AF lenses altogether.
  2. If you like the look of Fuji the X-Pro2 is the step-up from the X100T with interchangable lenses. Drop down to the X-E3 or X-T30 from there in price but you get the same sensor and processing speeds (they don't have the OVF but of course retain the EVF). The older X-Pro1, X-T20 and X-E2 will be significantly cheaper second hand but still great as the updates to the X-E3 and X-T30 were very recent, the X-T30 was March 2019. Any Fujifilm XF range lens is going to be good; the XF 16-55 f2.8 or XF 18-55 f2.8-4 would be normal travel kit/zoom choices. Also our other thread:
  3. All the talk of "faith" in the teaser set off alarm bells for me, I could hear Burnham delivering it while staring earnestly into the middle distance. Hopefully this has nothing to do with the level of thoughtless pseudo-profound cliche that will be in the actual script.
  4. I don't understand what the point of Rich Energy is other than getting their CEO and his titanic ego onto TV and presumably into the F1 pits occasionally. Oh right I just answered my own question. From the judge: “Mr Storey provided different and inconsistent accounts of the development of D1’s Device, which also conflicted to a large extent with the evidence of Mr Kelly.” “He often did not answer questions directly, preferring to make speeches about his vision for his business or alternatively seeking to evade questions by speaking in generalities or in the third person plural. He only answered several questions when I intervened.” “He had a tendency to make impressive statements, which on further investigation or consideration were not quite what they seemed.” Wealthy arseholes who have never been called out on their shit.
  5. No worries. I feel like I've tried every combination of words in the English language and got nothing. It also led me to stumble across some vintage tripods on Etsy, one of which I've now bought instead. So sexy...
  6. Thanks @mindgames. I still can't figure out what that specific part is called so will have to buy a new complete assembly. Doh!
  7. Anyone know what this is called and where I might be able to buy one? Preferably knurled metal (aluminium)?
  8. I've started playing with an old Helios 135mm f2.8 mounted on my Fuji X-E3 (so 1.4*135=189mm). Learning the manual focus, not worrying too much about sharpness, and swirly bokeh from old lens construction is fun.
  9. I'm torn. Amazon are a shitty company, but they will give this the budget it may need.
  10. That was a very dull race indeed but at least Vettel didn't win it. Simplified aero rules can't come fast enough.
  11. Ferrarilol. Sport would be better off without them, they should have their bluff called re: their preferential treatment.
  12. Just your screen I think. I really like the second one, I'm a sucker for that kind of lighting that looks a little like a videogame.
  13. Only just caught up on the race. My takeaways - Melbourne is a ton of fun to drive on the F1 games but boring to watch. Ferrari continue to be naff with team orders and Vettel continues to prove he's overrated. I really don't care who wins these days as long as it's not him. Looks like much of the same otherwise and quite a few races won't be worth watching.
  14. Okay they're some old version of MySQL installed on Windows ME when the rest of the world is on Postgre. We should ditch this analogy. Discovery has inspired me to go through Voyager with a denofgeek episode guide to make sure I hit the highlights and skip a couple of duds. I think it holds up well and is pretty great, although I can't rule out the latest films and STD skewing my perspective.
  15. I can't believe people wrote the lines spoken by the characters, looked at their screen or bit of paper and didn't think "wait a minute, that's a bit shit". Then script editors actually read it and said "this is great!". It's terrible but I'm still watching in hope that it turns a corner, the corner is just going to have to be a hairpin turn.
