Yeah saw the last of series 1, believe there is another series on the way.

Saw the movie as well, was similar but different, I wasn't expecting that ending either.

A7sIII seems to be aimed at film making. Being twice the price and having lower megapixels I dont have a lot of incentive to switch. Still super happy with the A7iii.

Id love to see the new menu system and improved Eye-AF features come to the A7iii in an update though.
On devices like Cameras and tv's between different models they should be more universal with the OS and easier to update with more updates. BUT in this area manufactures from even just 1 year old tv's the OS seems so different you get different types and version of updates where some simply do not make sense.
I hope so because looking at reviews I know what you mean, but if they don't it's silly they don't.

So the machine is all put together now, here's some pics


 

 

 

 

 

 

The Atom processor is sloooow (D410) - even with an SSD its very laggy to respond to anything - but hopefully once I've finished optimising Windows and with the soundcard I'm using it should be fine with Foobar2000 and FLAC decoding.

I'm also well aware that I could have used some linux flavour to make it snappier but I cba with it or trying to ensure drivers, etc work, this is simpler for me and means I can use remote desktop right off the bat.

The Evercool garbage is going to be replaced with a suitable replacement fan - I thought Noctua would fit but they don't do anything 10mm deep :( - or maybe two with a 3-4 pin molex adapter.

BTW if ever you need a VGA to HDMI converter in your life I highly recommend that well known asian brand VENTION

Ive upgraded to the A7iii now and absolutely love it, but its not much smaller anymore, feels a lot like my D90 but way better tech.

I havent found lenses to be lacking, I have the Tameron 28-75 2.5, Sony 55mm 1.8 and Samyang 24 2.8. All of which I absolutely love and none which are particularly large.
Sony has brought out the a7s III. Any of you keen on this one? Lots of youtuber's and camera folk seem to be loving it.

It's definitely over the top! But I can't help but feel that complaining about wearing a mask when its so low effort isn't really helping matters, if there is a spike we could be back to square one seeing lockdowns again like Victoria in Aus, Spain, etc :dunno:
It is mandatory in the state of Victoria to wear masks. Police are struggling as there is this increasing amount of people with "Its against human rights" bullcrap but the police are starting to arrest them now. State borders are shut but people have been trying to get through still but finally also being arrested.


Victoria here is out of control. Everything though boils down to mistakes and idiots.


- Victoria refused to have the national guard monitor hotels for people in quarantine. They used security guards or hotel security and there were several mistakes and people escaping.
- Victoria people are just out of control from my friend in Melbourne, specifically Melbourne - Parties, bars and night clubs totally ignoring all the regulations etc in place.


For NSW there has been blips as you would expect but the big spike:
- 2 women got in from Victoria
- 1 of the above women went to a thai restaurant who was packing the place out and not doing the distancing and limits as they should. She infected people including staff.
- Said staff went to one of the other branches and infected staff and people there
- Then you got the spiral from those cases.
- The SAME 2 women then managed to get a flight to Brisbane and are the cause of infections there. Allowed to fly out and made false claims on the COVID flight documents to get in too.


Basically NSW and Brisbane spike is from 2 IDIOTS!
Victoria is a wash with errors and people just not even doing basics.


US is a mess but it just shows that everyone has to do their bit otherwise it can very easily go out of control again.

lol good fear porn from Mr Pie "YER YOU KNOW WOTS WERSE DAN A MARSK, VENTILATOR TOOB MAYTE" Social shame is an intriguing weapon in getting this enforced.


I do wonder how long for? Someone I work with said "well it's fine to wear one forever, I'm protecting other people" His mask was literally a home made rag :dunno: It'll be interesting if it goes the way of "social distancing" IE as time goes on more and more people bin it off regardless of if they're "told to" Or not.
