  • @johnolilly @adamnash if you are using bad lenses (like an 18-200), you don’t need to upgrade. Full frame is harder than APS-C. #
  • @johnolilly @adamnash verdict: if you know how to use a larger sensor, pictures will be better. If you don’t, they might actually be worse. #
  • @adamnash you need more light for the same dof (at same fov). So focus is more important. And get some good glass—stop using superzooms. #
  • @adamnash a digital rebel with great glass >> a 6D with the lenses you have. #
  • “@ewoolery: Help us Launch Storied: Capture and Share Family Stories by Elijah Woolery — Kickstarter http://t.co/AOoqBsZa via @kickstarter#
  • @johnolilly @adamnash you guys should do this right. Get the 6D, 24-70/2.8L II, 70-200/2.8L II, and a 16-35 or 17-40. Then, maybe a 50/1.4. #
  • Complimentary espresso by Lufthansa is everywhere. How very civilized! @ Gate G01 http://t.co/qH6Zwp9J #

  • I'm rendering a movie from 100 megapixel source frames. This will be interesting. Without a Mac Pro, I would be toast. :) #
  • @zCaron You gotta get rid of that animated avatar! #
  • OK, Mac experts. How do I disable CMD-M minize? It's very annoying—too easy to hit on accident, and requires mouse to get window back. #
  • @blam OK, @bla. Now, I' sure I'll be ore productive. #
  • @blam Rogelio y Juan! Please say hi to everyone for me. #
  • @zCaron I do love cats, but your avatar draws my eyes to it constantly in TweetDeck. My only solution may be to block! #
  • Beware before upgrade: @GoPro's Cineform Studio's CodecStatus utility doesn't seem to work in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion #
  • @zCaron Maybe it's just me… #
  • @DiverSuz I have a second machine. I can use that... #
  • .@GoPro I restarted my machine, and the CodecStatus appeared. Seems to work! #
  • Just posted a photo http://t.co/cUl1kGf1 #
  • One of @alexkingorg's friends verified huge Mail.app performance problems on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It's not just me! #
  • @CineForm @GoPro Thank you. It has appeared, but the application continues to be very crashy. I'm trying hard to use it. #
  • Great. Final Cut Pro X screws up colors and destroys anaglyph 3D from GoPro Cineform codec. #
  • I seem to have used up 200GB tonight. Damn. #fb #
  • I am being driven crazy by codec gamma shifts in exported anaglyph 3D video. #fb #
  • What it’s like to freedive under a whale shark. https://t.co/1CpKkx57 #

  • @MikeSternoff Really? There is a downgrade option? That seems like it might cause problems. Haven't read about that anywhere. #

  • @davidsanger unfortunately, I have the Presto Gigabit Server PCIe from early 2011, which they say is "unsupported." Working with support. #

  • Wow. This horrible Mail.app performance in Mac OS 10.8 might just be the thing to drive me to use the Gmail web interface. #
  • @davidsanger I only bought the card 15 months ago. It was discontinued in favor of a new model 11 months ago. So it goes, in tech… ;) #

  • @blam Help me find a desktop conversion to standing—one that sits on top of an existing desk. It needs to support 50 lbs of computer gear. #
  • @balmer Can you try taking a picture at full wide in which your foreground subject is literally 5" from the front of the camera? cc @Lytro #
  • @balmer Also, my captions make it up to the website. We've never had anyone report that captions aren't making it to the site (?) #
  • @blam at work, I need something that can hold a 27” display—around 25 lbs. Bonus for 2nd display space. Might have to DIY it. #

  • @blam You are absolutely right on. :) But for work, we have fixed desks already. A shame. #
  • @blam If it can hold 23.5 lbs, which is not certain, yet. I have an open request with Ergo. #
