      Note that Korean manufacturers are like mafia as they coordinate prices and have huge margins (on large OLED screen it can be 300-500%).

    I'm Back Digital back for analog cameras - strange product

      Very old concept made by guys very similar to Digital Bolex team.

      Lot of strange decisions, like 43 sensor for FF cameras. Very strange kit made by some drunk person, I believe.

      Sad thing is that simple cheap solutions exist, ZCam is using $4-5 CPUs from security cameras for their expensive models.

      Wish you all the best. This, of course, means destruction of capitalism.

      Always remember - frequently you miss most valuable sources of information, thinking that it is no big deal.

    AI: War with China on AI field
    • The US is restricting the sale of chips that Nvidia Corp. designed specifically for the Chinese market and curbing exports to two Chinese artificial-intelligence chip firms, as part of sweeping updates to export controls that are designed to block China’s access to highly advanced semiconductor technology.

      The tighter controls will target Nvidia’s A800 and H800 chips, a senior US official said, which the American firm created for export to the Asian country after the Biden administration introduced its initial restrictions last October. Those curbs, including the updated rules released Tuesday, aim to prevent China from accessing cutting-edge technology with military uses.

      Military use has no value here, but AI use has.

      The only non military area where US led block has advantage for now is big data and AI. And loosing this battle will mean.. the end.
