    any canon lens out there that makes no noise when it focus at video mode?

    Yes. There are a lot of lenses that don’t. Most L-series glass should be fine. You can also look into STM lenses which also specialize in having quiet motors. I’m surprisend you have an issue with your 70-200. Is it the “IS II” or “IS III”? If it’s the non-IS model then that guy hasn’t been...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Agreed. Just treat them like any other actor. Frankly I won't know who literally any of these "streamer celebs" are anyway. So I likely won't even notice. If their acting is fine, then no other aspect of this matters. For people who like the references/memes great. For me, I can just not...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    My opinion to add to this is: there isn't really any launch titles that I want to play anyway. The closest/biggest one is CP2077, but I can choose to play that basically on any platform I want (although I don't have a card that supports RTX handly - and it's likely that RDNA is going to have...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Depends on what kind of performance and visual fidelity you want. If you want 4k 120p RTX and all shader effects on, then it's going to take a killer system. If you're good with 1080 30p medium, then much less. That's more or less the same as every other current/next gen title.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    The greatest asset to a game like this is the world building. And it's clear that CDPR have done this at every level. The geography. Architecture. People groups. This is going to be one of the highest level RPG's to date. The fact that there are TV personalities at this level says a lot...

    Cyberpunk 2077's Minimum & Recommended Specs Revealed

    Although I think the CDPR is spending a good amount of time optimizing, I'm sure this game will still require a lot to run maxed out (no one is going to be able to touch id levels of engine performance - though I wish companies would consider performance as a feature in itself). You'll note in...

    iOS 14

    Apple also recently bought Dark Sky, which many say is the best weather app on any platform. A bunch of people got annoyed by this, since it was also the best weather app on Android and Apple removed it from the Play Store. Mostly talking to myself, but I guess I should see if there is a...

    What is Official 3080 Sales Time For Thursday?

    The only way for it to stop, the only proverbial "give" is that people have to stop caring. And since that won't happen, you will always have this problem. Even if it's only people with deep pockets at the top whom have access to this stuff, as long as the market is big enough and stuff keeps...

    Looks like the 3080 is in stock here

    Scalpers only succeed because of limited availability, high demand, and people willing to pay those prices. If you don't want to pay scalpers prices... don't. But that comes at the cost of being patient. And obviously people generally aren't (hence literally this entire thread).

    iOS 14

    Yeaaaah. I'm finding that it's my least favorite thing of the update. I wish I could just delete all of the icons (or remove the entire drawer). Maybe I'll post a picture of my screen, but I'm ultra fastidious. Every app is organized in folders by type and everything is literally...

    The "Official" Canon R5, R6, and Sony A7s III thread New R5 updates make the overheating issue easier to deal with. It's still not a camera that can be used reliably for long-form content, but now that the camera doesn't "immediately begin overheating" just...

    EVGA Announces XR1, the World's First OBS Certified Capture Device

    The device is only capable of encoding 1080p/60. 4k/60 is just what it's capable of doing in terms of passthrough. I think the greater application for this is going to be console based streamers.

    iOS 14

    So far everything is working well. Snappy even on "two gen old" hardware. Makes me wonder how much time was spent in optimization or if they even need to bother anymore. There is a significant portion of Apple's product stack that is still running on A10 (like the iPad), so I'm sure they...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    In economic principles yes - this is true. Which is why I stated in what you quoted that there has to be enough people that wouldn't buy it at full price in addition to the people that would, are necessary for sales to be worth it. That is also combined with the factor you brought up - at some...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    This is also ignoring the entire used game market. In which it's possible to buy "discounted games" at a further fraction of the original price. If you can't see how you'd be able to "get your $100 back" over the lifetime of the system, I can't help you. Discounts increase break even points...
