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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

A review of the year 2020, by Andrew Reid

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,...

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...

Canon to supply other companies with CMOS sensors, joining Sony

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...

Christopher Nolan’s fury at Warner in streaming controversy – “They didn’t tell anybody”

The cinema industry is set for a huge shake-up. Coming to a sofa near you – Matrix 4. Wonder Woman 1984 (although not in 4K). Soon there will be no reason to leave the house. Oh wait – there isn’t already! Now cinema has been dealt a massive blow by one of the largest studios themselves. A classic case of shooting themselves in the foot. According to...

Photokina show terminated after 70 years

The historic photographic industry exhibition Photokina is over. Management blame the decline of the camera industry, and couldn’t even organise a show for 2022 by which time the pandemic will be well under control. This news is extremely sad, and hardly satisfactory that the camera companies and Photokina management couldn’t work something out. Here’s...
