Watch it. The premise in like Mondaiji ga Kuru, but better execution, also art and animations are amazing, especially the slow-mo scenes


Hmmm... Amazon.jp is having a half-price sale for Canon Kiss X50 and Nikon D5100.(well, sale for ones in my budget, anyway) Might be a good idea to upgrade my camera. biggrin.gif

Gotta agree with you, i just hope the story will develop well.

$20??? How??? :eek:

 

Yeah, I hope so too. If it can't, I'll just add a GPU later.

 

I bought it second hand from a friend, and it had a faulty ROM that froze a lot and randomly rebooted itself. So I jokingly offered $20 for it to take it off his hands, and to my surprise he accepted my offer.

Another thing to consider is what type of display it is. Next to an IPS, a TN panel looks like crap to me, even if they are both 1080P. My 1440P Dell sits next to an IPS 1080P LG and while the Dell does look sharper, it's not as big a difference to my eyes as the change from TN to IPS.

Aww, really? Too bad.

Hmm, I don't really see that too much on my IPS display on my left monitor compared to my TN on the right. Or at least I think it's a TN, I'm not really sure lol

Definitely because of the pixel count. Not only is the retina display smaller, but the resolution is something like 2880x1800 compared to your montior that is 1920x1080 and is larger. If you want a higher pixel density monitor, the only way to go is up to a 27" 1440p monitor from Monoprice for about $400 or so, but the "retina" displays on Apple laptops will always look crisper than desktop panels.

 

Have you tried another USB cable with it?

 

Bowei, hold up a sec and do some math.

24" monitor, 1920x1080. That's ~92PPI.

Retina display macbook, 2880x1800 at 15.6" That's ~221PPI

Of course the one with more than double the pixel density of the other one is going to be more crisp...

 

 

I wasn't talking about cirspiness in general but in that quantity of numbers doesn't always equal better crispiness or anything really.
 
Take a very schitty 720p TV (one of the people in my dorm has something like it). And take one of dem old CRT's without any physical pixels and set that 852/480 (approx 16:9) to even 7 and put some nice schiit on it. The 480p is guaranteed to look more. Because seriously, that schiit 720p TV I'm talking about is the definition of near schiit. It's not even calibrated wrong or anything, it just sucks. 
 
The controls are pretty good. My mistake was flying it in a very very small room. I took it down to the basement and it flew like a champ.....

Of course a crappy TV will look like crap compared to a better TV, regardless of age. That's why I'm still keeping my Panasonic Plazma from ~4 years ago, because it still has very good color levels compared to today's LCDs.

But there's a much more obvious reason why it looks better, and that's resolution.

 

Lol, ok.

Are you sure you aren't talking about miceblue or someone else? I don't ever recall listening to that album before... :confused:

I'm fine with me P2314H Dells for now. Nice black levels and matt, gloss strains my eyes too much.

Yeah, the 5100 definitely looks better but it also costs $100 more. Am looking up reviews of the DX50 atm.

I might give Sidonia another try once a few more episodes are out.

Lol. Played much Competitive yet? I am currently addicted (largely thanks to csgolounge.com and reddit.com/r/csgobetting. Esports, suddenly interesting). Sadly the closest servers to me are in Singapore and I'm getting 120 ping average......

I heard it's executed pretty well.
But based on the synopsis, I won't touch this show with a ten feet pole :P

I assume you're invested into Nikon's ecosystem right? Because for the most part I don't see the need for DSLR anymore for semi amateur use.
