EFCS and Bokeh — a7RII with Sony 90/2.8 macro
There are some exposure variations at higher speeds. We expect this. The bokeh differences appear to be minimal to me. However, in theory, there should be bokeh effects of EFCS at high speeds, since the electronic first curtain is in a different plane than the mechanical first and second curtains. Thus, depending on the characteristics of the lens the subject distance, the f-stop, and the place where you look in the image, we should see some differences. They don’t appear to be important here — the exposure variation is more noticeable — but they probably would be at higher shutter speeds.

Social in the Abyss–Interview with Geert Lovink by Tuğçe Yilmaz for K24
Current social media do not bring people together into sustainable social entities. They are designed for overworked individuals, locked-up in their filter bubble/echo chamber/abyss, busy trying keep up with their precarious e-lives. There is no way revolutionaries can ‘compete’ at that level. Corporate content will always out smart you—unless you step out and changes the rule of the game.

Using Center Button AF on Sony a7 Series Cameras
Once you’ve done this you can adjust Zone or Flexible Spot focus points while shooting simply by pressing the center of the Control Wheel to activate the focus point then pressing the sides, top, or bottom of the Control Wheel to move it around or you can rotate the Control Wheel to choose the size of the flexible spot: Small, Medium or Large – I prefer Medium.

The Web We Lost
The tech industry and its press have treated the rise of billion-scale social networks and ubiquitous smartphone apps as an unadulterated win for regular people, a triumph of usability and empowerment. They seldom talk about what we’ve lost along the way in this transition, and I find that younger folks may not even know how the web used to be.

It's time to rebuild the web
The web was never supposed to be a few walled gardens of concentrated content owned by a few major publishers; it was supposed to be a cacophony of different sites and voices.
