I just discovered this amazing app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.motioncam.pro

It is able to shoot full sensor (4080 x 3060) 60fps RAW videos on my S24 Ultra, with all 4 lenses, without dropping any frames.
What was only possible with expensive pro cameras, is now with me all the time.

It is true that the files are large (>10 GB for 30 seconds), but the idea is to capture all the information available on the sensor while in the field and worry about color grading and recoding at home.

Here are a couple of videos highlighting the massive quality difference between stock camera apps and MCP:

https://youtu.be/AjkchOsifNg
https://youtu.be/O5fnGDR4i9w

It opens up many editing options, not only to those familiar with Davinci Resolve or Premiere Pro, but also to photographers who may only be familiar with Lightroom (editing a video the same way time-lapses are edited, because each frame can be exported as a RAW DNG from the RAW footage).

Which writer's authority did I attack?

You dont understand basic things.
Below is your attack on an authors authority (New York Times) that you made without addressing the substance of the argument:

The New York Times is a newspaper that is controlled by Democrats and constantly blames Republicans for everything.

Because you can't refute any of those claims. Facts are against you.

....
This entire text is propaganda and manipulation by cowardly democrats. It's not surprising that you didn't even indicate its source (although this is not very important).
However, I was right, US citizens do not want to vote for the cowardly, old and ineffective Biden.

It's an article published a few hours ago in the New York Times. I copy pasted it since it is behind a paywall. But that's not relevant.

What's important is that it summarizes points I explained to you during the past 6 months or so (except for the Smirnov crap, I don't care about).

You refuse to acknowledge it despite evidence screaming in your face: trump and maga are very bad news for Ukraine. You are cheering for Ukraine's dismemberment!  :(
The New York Times is a newspaper that is controlled by Democrats and constantly blames Republicans for everything. This newspaper also publishes a lot of anti-Ukrainian articles paid for by Russians.
Everything that is written in this article is not serious for people who analyze the situation and policies of Biden and his assistants.
I want the US to pursue effective policies. Democrats can't do that.

And yet, you have done nothing to refute the arguments, because you can't. The facts, the numbers, the voting records, the statements, and the logic all are against you.
The only thing you can do is to attack the authority of the writer.

Republicans Who Like Putin

Large parts of the Republican Party now treat Vladimir Putin as if he were an ideological ally. Putin, by contrast, continues to treat the U.S. as an enemy.

This combination is clearly unusual and sometimes confusing. It does not appear to stem from any compromising information that Putin has about Donald Trump, despite years of such claims from Democrats. Instead, Trump and many other Republicans seem to feel ideological sympathies with Putins version of right-wing authoritarian nationalism. They see the world dividing between a liberal left and an illiberal right, with both themselves and Putin along with Viktor Orban of Hungary and some other world leaders in the second category.

Whatever the explanation, the situation threatens decades of bipartisan consensus about U.S. national security.

Already, House Republicans have blocked further aid to Ukraine a democracy and U.S. ally that Putin invaded. Without the aid, military experts say Russia will probably be able to take over more of Ukraine than it now holds.

If Trump wins a second term, he may go further. He has suggested that he might abandon the U.S. commitment to NATO, an alliance that exists to contain Russia and that Putin loathes. He recently invited Russia to to do whatever . they want to NATO countries that dont spend enough on their own defense. (Near the end of his first term, he tried to pull American troops out of Germany, but President Biden rescinded the decision.)

Trump has also avoided criticizing Putin for the mysterious death this month of his most prominent domestic critic, Aleksei Navalny, and has repeatedly praised Putin as a strong and smart leader. In a town hall last year, Trump refused to say whether he wanted Ukraine or Russia to win the war.

There are some caveats worth mentioning. Some skepticism about how much money the U.S. should send to Ukraine stems from practical questions about the wars endgame. Its also true that some prominent Republicans, especially in the Senate, are horrified by their partys pro-Russian drift and are lobbying the House to pass Ukraine aid. If your position is being cheered by Vladimir Putin, its time to reconsider your position, Senator Mitt Romney of Utah said last month.

But the Republican fascination with Putin and Russia is real. The Putin-friendly faction of the party is ascendant, while some of his biggest critics, like Mitch McConnell, who announced this week that he would step down this year as the Republican Senate leader, will soon retire.

In the rest of todays newsletter, well walk through the evidence of this shift.

Ukraine aid

The Senate has passed an additional $60 billion in aid to Ukraine, with both Republican and Democratic support. But the House, which Republicans control, has so far refused to pass that bill. House Speaker Mike Johnson, who is close to Trump, has not allowed a vote on the bill even though it would likely pass if he did.

A few Republicans have gone so far as speak about Ukraine and its president, Volodymyr Zelensky, in ways that mimic Russian propaganda. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has accused Ukraine of having a Nazi army, echoing language Putin used to justify the invasion.

Military experts say that if Ukraine does not receive more U.S. aid, it could begin losing the war in the second half of this year. Not since the first chaotic months of the invasion, when Russian troops poured across the borders from every direction and the country rose up en masse to resist, has Ukraine faced such a precarious moment, wrote our colleagues Andrew Kramer and Marc Santora, who have been reporting from Ukraine.

Alexander Smirnov
House Republicans hoping to impeach President Biden have repeatedly promoted information that appears to have been based partly on Russian disinformation. One example: The Republicans cited an F.B.I. document in which an informant accused Biden and his son, Hunter, of taking $5 million bribes from the owner of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company.

But federal prosecutors have now accused the informant, Alexander Smirnov, of fabricating the allegation to damage Bidens 2020 presidential campaign. Smirnov has told the F.B.I. that people linked to Russian intelligence passed him information about Hunter Biden.

A federal judge has ordered Smirnov detained and called him a flight risk.

Tucker Carlson
Tucker Carlson is not a Republican Party official, but he is an influential Trump supporter, and Carlson has often echoed Russian propaganda. At least once, he went so far as to say he hoped Russia would win its war against Ukraine.

Last month, Carlson aired a two-hour interview with Putin in which Putin made false claims about Ukraine, Zelensky and Western leaders with little pushback from Carlson. In a separate video recorded inside a Russian grocery store, Carlson suggested life in Russia was better than in the U.S.

Republican voters
The shift in elite Republican opinion toward Russia and away from Ukraine has influenced public opinion.

Shortly after Russia invaded, about three-quarters of Republicans favored giving Ukraine military and economic aid, according to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Now, only about half do.

Republican voters are also less likely to hold favorable views of Zelensky. In one poll, most Trump-aligned Republicans even partly blamed him for the war. Republicans also support NATO at lower rates than Democrats and independents, a shift from the 1980s.

When he says he will make peace with putin in 24 hours, he truly intends to do so by giving putin what he wants: lifting U.S. hands off Ukraine and handing it over on a silver platter. He will then claim that he prevented World War III.

He is not a strategic thinker or a mastermind. He is a moron, and everyone (including a pro Ukraine GOP minority) can see it, except for you and his maga cult.

You have a few on your side: putin, Tucker Carlson, trump, and his maga cultists...
Putin publicly supported Biden. You deny the facts. This is how Democratic propaganda works.

putin is messing with your head, doing a great job of sowing discord among allies.

Allow me to remind you that you have consistently emphasized that he is a KGB agent who should never be trusted.
I believe most of us concur with that assessment.

It is noteworthy that now you have abruptly gained confidence in the veracity of his statements.

Unfortunately, you have become too indoctrinated to perceive his message with clarity, falling victim to his highly effective propaganda.
Yes, putin is a KGB agent. Yes, he does any actions for some purpose. But these are my words, not yours.
You all here always directly perceive what Biden, Trump and putin say. If putin supported Trump, you Zero Talent would be the first to shout that Trump is the friend and hope of the Russians.
Now this is what we have. We have already seen two public speeches by putin, when he twice supports Biden and even says that he supports him in the US elections. This is a signal for all Russians in the USA and for all Russian trolls to support Biden. This is exactly how putin communicates with the troll army. If you have evidence that Russian trolls are now supporting Trump, publish that evidence.
Also, Biden, immediately after putins first statement, began calling him funny names, which also raises questions for Biden. Isn't Biden a fool?
As for me, I have been seeing Bidens cowardly and pro-Russian policies for 3 years now, so I dont care what putin says, I believe that Biden is a friend of the Russians. Trump is an enemy of the Russians, and he proved it with his policies when he was president.
Therefore, when I refer to facts, and this is putins support for Biden, I do this specifically for the sect called US Democrats. You Zero Talent are not an independent voter, you are a Democrat troll. These are also facts.

No, unlike you, I never put any weight on what putin says. You can safely assume that he is never telling the truth.

trump, on the other hand, is a spoiled 10-year-old who says the first things that cross his little brain.
When he admired putin, Kim Jong-un he meant it.

When he says he will make peace with putin in 24 hours, he truly intends to do so by giving putin what he wants: lifting U.S. hands off Ukraine and handing it over on a silver platter. He will then claim that he prevented World War III.

He is not a strategic thinker or a mastermind. He is a moron, and everyone (including a pro Ukraine GOP minority) can see it, except for you and his maga cult.

PS. Everyone knows that putin was a KGB agent, not only you.
Like presidents, ministers, and ambassadors, KGB agents keep their title for life.  ;D

If you don't want to listen to this forum, then listen to your compatriot who, unlike you, lives in the real world and knows what Ukraine needs and, most importantly, what it does not need: to be sold out to putin by trump and his maga cult.

Luckily, as we can see in this clip, despite the impression this forum might give, there are many intelligent Ukrainians who know how to distinguish between reality and wishful thinking..

I won't be surprised if Trump wins. Democrats are the same as Russians with the same low level of propaganda. I think US citizens have long understood this.

You don't even realize how effective russian propaganda is.
They even convinced you that trump is your saviour.

So sad!
Unlike you, I think and analyze. You are proposing to support the weak and ineffective Biden, who has proven his weakness and ineffectiveness many times over. At the same time, you have already branded and put an end to Trump, who has not even become president yet and has not done anything.
I'm ashamed of you Zero Talent, I had a better opinion of you.
I am sure that you are pursuing personal gain from the victory of the Democrats. That's why I ask, what amounts of money are we talking about, how much did you sell yourself to the Democrats for?

PS.
I don't read Russian propaganda and don't have discussions with Russian trolls. My information field has been cleared of Russian lies.

He is clearly hoping that trump "will change his mind," which, for everyone but you, only means that trump's mind is not in favor of Ukraine.

But putin's propaganda is so effective that you view him as your savior!

Unbelievable, but true! Stockholm syndrome?

Luckily for Ukraine, forum lunatics are not in charge, but wise people who see things as they are: a victory for trump and maga means Ukraine's dismemberment and even annihilation.

While they criticized the current aid levels (as they should), they never voted against Ukraine, like the maga majority.
They are not part of the maga majority who blocked all aid for Ukraine.
Is that all the accusations you can bring against the Republican Party?  ;D ;D ;D
Republicans are not voting against Ukraine, they are voting against the idiotic policies of the Democrats and Biden.
So, you agree with the accusations made by these 3 Republicans. Great, then you must understand that Biden is a criminal, and his place is in prison!

Yes, I agree with the 3 Republicans you mentioned, I agree with Nikie Haley, I agree with Liz Cheney, I agree with Mitt Romney, and I agree with their old-school minority inside the GOP.

I strongly disagree with trump-the-moron and his maga "putin-wing" populist, hyper-nationalist and isolationist majority.

Zero Talent, you are scaring everyone here with some kind of maga faction and what they supposedly for putin and that these maga want to support russia. This is such nonsense. The most you can provide as evidence is someone else's statements, that's all. You have nothing against the maga faction or the republicans. While the Democrats and Biden have been committing political crimes for 2 years, incl. against the USA, and you are trying to blame the Republicans for everything.
Especially for you, read the Republican plan and their real accusations against the Democrats 5 times, and stop defending the Democrats here.

https://foreignaffairs.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/Proposed-Plan-for-Victory-in-Ukraine.pdf

As for that daughter in the video, she doesnt understand at all what politics is, whats happening in Ukraine, what Ukraine needs and what the democrats are doing. You Democrats are in a bag of propaganda. Once again, Ukraine needs a plan and weapons to support this plan. Just shells, in some small quantity, will not solve the problem at the front. Therefore, it is better not to receive anything at all from the United States and thereby reduce Bidens rating, than to receive something meager and increase the rating of this freak Biden.

Now we need to remove democrats from power and judge them. And we will see whether or not to judge the maga faction after the Republicans win and what their policy will be. I don't care what those in maga faction say, I'm only interested in real politics.

That freak Biden had 3 years to pursue normal policies. He mediocrely wasted these years and helped the Russians. And no maga faction bothered him these 3 years. Now the time has come for him to answer and I hope he will be put in the electric chair.

I already told you that I tracked the voting records of the 3 authors of that document you are referring to, Michael McCaul, Mike Rogers, and Mike Turner.

While they criticized the current aid levels (as they should), they never voted against Ukraine, like the maga majority.
They are not part of the maga majority who blocked all aid for Ukraine.

They are not part of the "putin wing" of the Republican party, mentioned by Liz Cheney. They are part of the old-school GoP minority who always voted pro-Ukraine (same faction as Nikki Haley).

They simply believe that they can do better than the current administration.
I also believe that more should be done, and I told you that many times already.

But their plan was never voted by the GOP, because the majority of the GOP today, is made of what Liz Cheney called the "putin wing" of the GOP, or trump's maga.

But you burry your head in the sand and refuse to listen and reason.

The fact is that a majority of the Republican representatives, the maga faction, voted against them and against the bill.
This is a lie, the maga faction has never been a majority in the Republican Party. You lie and write propaganda. Even those Republicans who vote against are not part of the maga faction.

Nope. It's a fact. I already showed you how trump's maga has voted both in the Senate and the lower house.

Moreover, if you have a hard time reading and understanding graphs and facts, listen to the old-school GoP representative, Liz Cheney (daughter of the former GOP US Vice President, Dick Cheney):

https://youtu.be/JaBmM8FU1Mk

She is talking about the same thing you refuse to acknowledge because you live in a parallel universe: she is talking about the "putin wing" in the republican party (@3:55), she is talking about trump's maga majority, which is regularly voting anti-Ukraine, and she is concerned that this "putin wing" may take-over the West Wing of White House.

Remember that all this is coming from a prominent GoP representative.

Wake up and smell the coffee man!

Until the Democrats show the plan and the range of weapons for it, the Republicans will not vote. And I am against Ukraine being given something (just to give it) and it is not clear for what purpose.

The plan of the current administration was to provide Ukraine with the necessary ammunition to repel the ongoing Russian offensive.
But I guess this plan is not good enough for you, and you prefer NOTHING instead.
You prefer to let russia continue its conquest.
No worries then, your beloved maga friends are making sure that russia's conquest will not stop with Avdiivka, Bakhmut...

What you fail to understand is that the so-called GOP plan you are dreaming about was never put to a vote because it stands no chance in front of the maga majority. In fact, it is more of a political stunt than a plan.

I tracked the voting records for the authors of that document: Michael McCaul, Mike Rogers, and Mike Turner.

I am sorry to inform you that they are rather part of what I call old-school GOP (like Nikki Haley).
They are among a minority of Republicans who voted in favor of the last pro-Ukraine bill (H.R. 5682).
The fact is that a majority of the Republican representatives, the maga faction, voted against them and against the bill.
Again, the bill passed due to Democrats voting unanimously in favor of it, together with a minority of old-school Republicans, which included the three authors mentioned above.

Wake up and stop your masochistic behavior.

Well, about blocking all help, you are no longer telling the truth. In addition to the United States, other countries are also providing assistance to Ukraine.

Is that the best you can do?

Rest assured that for anyone able to properly read and think about it, it's obvious that your beloved maga fools have blocked ALL U.S. aid for Ukraine. Only someone with bad intentions (troll?) would take that statement out of its context and imply that I may have said that those beloved maga fools of yours voted to block the aid for Ukraine provided by other countries.

This is preposterous, but typical for someone who has nothing relevant left to say.

putin could not be happier than this. His propaganda has worked. That's a fact.
Putin was already satisfied with the meager assistance provided by the democrats. With the support that the Democrats have given and want to give, the Ukrainian Armed Forces cannot advance and liberate the territory. So it doesn't matter whether Republicans vote or don't vote. Until Biden shows them the plan and goals and a military plan for the supply of weapons is formed under this, the Republicans will not vote.

Yes, putin was already satisfied to see the reluctance of Ukraines allies to go all in and offer a NATO no-fly zone or to provide jet fighters and long-range missiles directly to Ukraine.

But he cannot be happier than today when ALL support for Ukraine was blocked by maga fools, including the planned support that may have helped Ukraine to repel the ongoing russian offensive.

His propaganda is working.

putin is only supporting chaos in the enemy camp. He convinced Ukrainians like you to support trump, against their interests

In fact, Republicans asked Biden and Democrats to give them a plan to support Ukraine. What's the end goal? Biden has not given this plan and constantly says all sorts of nonsense and blames the Republicans. I constantly wrote that the help that the Democrats give is not effective.

Zero Talent, your screenshot is a lie and propaganda of the Democrats.

This screenshot below is a fact: maga senators tried to block aid for Ukraine. They did not succeed because an almost unanimous majority of Democrats, together with a few true GOP senators, managed to form a majority large enough to pass the bill.
But then, the maga fool pictured in the above joke refused to put the bill on the lower house agenda and went on vacation.
