Which camera websites spy on you? Each site ranked for privacy and trackers in Safari 14

One of the great features Apple has introduced lately is to prevent tracking scripts following you as you browse the web, creating personal data profiles that are sold to advertisers. Advertises bid for banners on nearly all camera-related websites. In order to target the right people and bid for the most compelling slots, they need to know who is watching. Web surfing history and private user information is used to build a unique profile of you. It’s a very unethical practice and one of the reasons I do not run advertising tracking cookies or auction ad-space on EOSHD. I just …

The genius of Ben Kingsley

Recently I re-watched one of my all-time favourites of Kingsley’s movies “Sexy Beast”. This film is a gem. He plays tense, psychotic London gangster “Don”. It is the character people will always compare to his most famous role as Ghandi if only to demonstrate the sheer range of the guy, but for me the true genius of Kingsley is his fierce intelligence and originality – how he has a knack for making performances so memorable. The video above is a great watch. I liked his account of Martin Scorsese’s working methods. That he trusts his actors to deliver, giving them …

Who will kill filmmaking first?

Is there No Limit to our suffering. Locked in a race as to who can kill the arts first, we bear witness to a gargantuan dick swinging contest fought between haphazard bureaucrats in government and a deadly bat pathogen. The fight is escalating with no end in sight, but one thing is for sure – corporate America will profit endlessly. The psychological side of coronavirus I find very interesting. Are you cracking yet? I am! It is in no doubt a real and dangerous virus which kills many, many people. It is also true that government lockdowns break people in their …

Wonder Woman 1984 movie review – crimes against men and children

From the moment 11-year old Gal Gadot nearly gets her head sliced off by a giant pendulum, the tone is set. This is a film about complete bollocks. It isn’t even art. I can’t relate to, or enjoy any character. They are all selfish, privileged, shallow people. Yet Wonder Woman 1984 has nailed itself to gender equality, and female identity, thus putting itself beyond criticism. WW84 starts right away in the spirit of equality and women’s rights. Yes, the opening scene is a fitness pageant. The winner being the one who can jump, leap, ride and shoot their way to …

Andrew Reid on Filmmaking: When the truth is so awful, only liars win

Here begins a series of blog thoughts from me on the state of the world and filmmaking in 2021, after humanity decided to go headlong into a full dystopia like you see in the movies. There will in the future be many great cinematic masterpieces about our plight as citizens in the year 2020. Anyone who has seen Black Mirror writer Charlie Brooker’s “Death to 2020” on Netflix can see for themselves the historic plot twists and sheer lunacy of what we’ve been going through the past year. The overriding themes for me are very interesting and the basis probably for …

Top new cameras of 2020 (My picks) Sony A7S III // 4K 120fps Fuji X-T4 // King of APS-C Panasonic S5 // Value for money Leica SL2-S // Best Leica ever made for videography 2020 has been a very challenging year for us all, made worse by celebrities parading around on social media trying to help us feel better. Some of us lost our livelihoods this year, and after seeing Wonder Woman 1984, some lost the will to live. Here at EOSHD, I like to think of 2020 as being an unqualified success.

Camera industry is in crisis. What happens next?

Camera manufacturers are in a race to diversify, gradually leaving behind the traditional camera business. We’re in for a bit of a rollercoaster ride next year. Although sales have bounced back in China already after the Coronavirus pandemic, Japanese analysts have predicted a massive 40% decrease in shipments for 2020 compared to 2019. This comes on the back of several years of lower shipments already. Some predict the camera industry is due for a big correction in 2021 and beyond. It may eventually return to a hobbyist and professionals-only endeavour as mainstream customers fall away almost completely. What happens next to …

Canon to supply other companies with CMOS sensors, joining Sony

TowerJazz CMOS sensor wafers

For a long time, Canon’s in-house sensor division has made CMOS sensors for Canon’s camera business but now the company has set up a business website for a selection of image sensors they’re selling to external customers. Two APS-H sensors of very high megapixel counts could see scientific use. A global shutter sensor (small 2/3 inch) and a 1/1.8″ HDR sensor join the party. The choice of sensor on supply hints at the kind of usage – very high resolution capture for industrial and scientific machine vision, and different sensors for very low light capture with global shutter, destined
