I love that it’s only the kids that see the magic around them.
This is a great comparison video because they’re not out to prove the iPhone X is better than the Panasonic GH5 – they state they use both in their own productions – but just show the footage and let you see for yourself. Video via iPhoneinCanada.ca:
It’s an interesting time for videographers where a $1,529CDN phone can compete with a $3,290CDN camera. The portability of an iPhone X alone makes it a very compelling choice vs all the gear of a traditional video camera rig.
I’ve been researching camera options for an upcoming project and the budget definitely doesn’t allow for GH5 level gear – but $1,500 certainly would be in the ball park. This comparison video makes it compelling to just pick up an unlocked iPhone X.
Plus when they compare making phone calls, checking Twitter, or sending an email – I bet the iPhone X wipes the floor with the GH5. 😉
The Verge has a great video review up of the iPhone X, including a great way to see the tech behind the Face ID sensors:
Overall they love the iPhone X but it’s still running iOS with it’s quirks. It makes me wonder if we’ll ever see a dramatic change to iOS the way macOS changed from OS 9 to OS X. Phone hardware development happens even faster and at a larger scale than computer development did which must make it difficult to try and push major software changes when the hardware is what makes you money.
For me, I’m happy with the iPhone 8 I upgraded to this year. Baring any hardware issues (defects or accidents), I’m sure it’ll last me 2-3 years just like my iPhone 6 did before it. I’m also fine with letting early adopters work out the kinks of facial recognition before using it on my iPhone.
Bookmarking this here for myself and anyone else who has a Mac computer that can’t upgrade to macOS High Sierra, or that need to upgrade to El Capitan first.
“Two words,” Gord was saying quietly to himself. “I only have to remember two words — First Nations.” Gord’s rule about a fresh performance, in this, his final performance, was based on a fresh start, a new narrative for Canada. This was not about sympathy, it was about rights. Gord’s art. He was using his final show to tell us how to free ourselves from our attitudes. To change policies conceptually and financially. None of us should forget those two words. Just as we will never forget the show.
Night takes the chances, day the applause.
