Manfrotto 327RC2 Joystick Kugelkopf Problem

Schaut das an, bevor Ihr den Manfrotto Joystick Kugelkopf kauft.

Ich hatte den Stativkopf bisher nur zweimal im Einsatz und schon funktioniert das Teil nicht mehr 100%ig.

Ich hatte das Gerät bei Foto Erhardt günstig gekauft. Dort erlischt jedoch nach 14 Tagen bereits die Widerrufsfrist.

Jetzt befinde ich mich gerade in Verhandlungen mit Manfrotto und überlebe, was ich mit dem prinzipiell guten Actiongriff mache.

Foto Erhardt nimmt das Teil nicht mehr zurück (hätte ich doch nur bei Amazon bestellt).

Auch Manfrotto will mir das Ding nur umtauschen.

Ehrlich gesagt, würde ich am liebsten das Ding mit Verlust verkaufen.

Ich kann den Action Joystick Kugelkopf von Manfrotto nicht empfehlen.

Ein technisches Design, das nicht 100%ig funktioniert.

Nichts gegen Manfrotto, aber das Ding ist nicht gescheites, sorry.

Kevin James from King of Queens is an outstanding actor !

Hollywood please send a leading role to Kevin!

In this short sequence we can see, how much bittersweet humor can be transported in under 2 Minutes.

Kevin shows his super amazing acting skills!

The filmic piece gives the audience a kind of “lost in translation” feel.

Great little film, fun to watch.

Higher video resolution – Does 8K really matter?

I recently watched the documentary Apollo 11 on my HD TV.

That was the moment, when I realized, that higher definition really makes a difference.

The documentary about the first moon landing was filmed on 70mm material.

There is a remarkable optical difference between 70mm and regular 35mm film material.

It really looks more detailed and more life like.

Apollo 11 was shoot on 70mm film

This translates directly to new camera developements, like the Canon R5 with 8K video resolution.

Canon announced the EOS R5 with 8K video

In the first moment this sounded crazy and exagerated to me.

Who needs 8K anyways?

But when you compare the definition of 35mm to 70mm film this makes sense.

I believe there has to be also a new codec, to bring the moving images to the recording card, without overheating the camera.

But like in the case of Apollo 11 a higher resolution will be for archival purposes very useful.

Not very many people use 4K nowadays.

It will take a couple of years until 8K screens will be wide spread.

The Canon R5 with 8K video is still in developement.
