Might as well shoot with an iphone and a lens adaptor.

 

Well that's put that in it's place. Thanks for the advice!

Plus, what's the future of ENG cameras? Which way is it going? Or is that a separate topic?


In Topic: Now that TV's are widescreen will 1.85 turn into the 4:3 of yesteryear?

Watching commercials on tv I see that the aspect ratio changes in a free way that I actually like. First an ad in 16:9, then letterbox 2.40:1, then something like 2.20:1, no logic to it. At first I think the programmers might have tried to put all widescreen ads together but now it seems to be a free mix. Wouldn't bother me if they started to chuck in 1:1 or whatever though 9:16 wouldn't really suit tv. Variety is the spice of life. I think 2:1, 2.40:1 etc for movies will remain, along with other varieties of aspect ratio. Music survived the rock revolution.

It's reality of this world to be a slave to something. Some masters are more cruel though. Looking at history, and not being tempted by utopian dreams, distortions for sake of profit and power, I know which system I would gladly prefer to work under. The one we've got. Beware the greener field dream, the field of political dreamers. It's a field of many sad graves - a fact of history repeated over and over. However we aren't to discuss politics here. There is no utopia in this life. Only better and worse systems that aren't perfect. What scares me is the 'new' social movement that thinks we can make for ourselves a perfect society. Shiver. I feel cold thinking that they actually believe the political hype. My breathe freezes at the incipient evil. I look towards truth instead.
