  1. I liked it. Right from the off it wore it's Seven Samurai influences on it's sleeve and ran with it. Much like the series itself which is essentially doing this
  2. Oh ! I thought that was the finale ! It’s having an Xmas break then ?
  3. Wasn’t really sure where they were going with the finale until
  4. I wouldn’t get your hopes up as the previous season hasn’t hit the UK yet either
  5. It's something you have to sort in post. Even lab scans will do that - try to lift exposure and/or shadows to try to resolve detail that isn't there. Normally I'll just crank the blacks down until they're clipping
  6. I’m sure they’re trying their best to channel the African Queen in that trailer also
  7. @Fargo Buy it second hand. CEX in particular seem to be awash with A6000 at the moment and offer a two year guarantee with them. You can get one with the 16-50 for £290. Alternatively the A6300 with 16-50 is £530 second hand
  8. @Loik V credern You ok hun?

    There appears to be a fair few Blue Note vinyl re-releases recently and picked this up today. Partly for the amazing cover, but mostly because I didn't really know Herbie outside of Headhunters and Rockit. Needless to say this is great
  10. Scud Race Sega Rally 1&2 Daytona 1&2 Ridge Racer series Outrun C2C Metropolis Street Racer/Project Gotham Racing
  11. Disagree, I think it's fine. It sounds like a 90's af film camera when it focuses, but apart from that I have no issues with it.
  12. Pfft Atari 400/800 please. The C64 version was a port. Loved Dropzone.
  13. I like those. Funnily enough was just browsing David Burnett's Holga photos which i've not seen before. https://www.davidburnett.com/gallery.html?gallery=Holga+Eye&folio=Galleries&vimeoUserID=&vimeoAlbumID=#/0
  14. Or alternatively they've run out of money and the keyboard is just a smoke screen for the delay whilst they try to get additional funding to enable them to release it.
  15. Not knowing much about it . Regardless, looks amazing.
  16. @Scratchy Bollock It depends I guess ? I've never really progressed beyond phone apps when needing to meter for long(er) exposures, and that was long before I learnt about reciprocity failure charts. This was phone metered
  17. I'd definitely go down the second hand route if you were considering Fuji on a budget. I buy all my cameras second hand, with MPB and CEX both been good on returns when the cameras have turned out to be duds. Ffordes (I've bought a lot of film camera gear from them, recommended) have a X-T20 with 16-50 for £500 https://www.ffordes.com/p/SOR-18-021278/mirrorless-fuji-x/x-t20-16-50mm-xc-silver
  18. Just as a counter point I'd go and have a look in your local Jessops, John Lewis etc. Half the thing for me with cameras is the ergonomics. Sony A6000 is a solid choice. At the cheaper end there's the Panasonic GX80, at the more expensive end there's Fuji's like the X-E and X-T series. Going second hand from somewhere like MPB, CEX, Ffordes, LCE (where you get a guarantee) opens up more options. Edit - Given that you mention street photography, I'd recommend a second hand Fuji (X-E1, X-E2. X-T1, X-T10, X-T20) as they offer minimum shutter speed on Auto-ISO. It's invaluable for street, and is something Panasonic, Olympus or Sony don't offer in that price range.
  19. Pacific Rim: Uprising / Independence Day: Resurgence; for similar reasons. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace / The Last Jedi The Hobbit films (although I've subsequently warmed to them, slightly).
  20. Are they trying to launch a second kickstarter before the first has delivered machines to backers ? If so it wouldn't be because they've spent all the original kickstarter money and need more cash to manufacture the original machines would it ?
  21. Avatar 4/5 Not watched it an age and holds up surprisingly well. Even feels kinda relevant given what's happening in Brazil
  22. There's also Finn's parentage mystery box. Will they be dumb enough to make him Lando's son ?
  23. It helps that frying pans keep getting used as weapons. At times it reminds me of a daytime soap, but with really good fight scenes. I love it.
