Highwire Goes Open Source
If you're tech-inclined, have a server capable of running PHP, and know how to download Xcode, it shouldn't be too difficult to build (and improve!) your own copy of Highwire. I would be absolutely thrilled to see another Mac developer take on the project and make the app even better.

Fujifilm GF lens and GFX 50R bundle insane deals! - FM Forums
The 50s seems to be the same size as a Canon 5D IV, so I went to a camera store to have a feel of what I'm expecting. As the 50r has wider body despite being thinner, it's still a huge body to hold regardless of its sensor size.

I always find even the A9 isn't very convenient for travel, there's always something about bringing out a big camera where attentions from surroundings are always expected, especially with lens like 35mm 1.4.

The elegant philosophy of Henri Cartier-Bresson who coined the term the decisive moment about that exact moment where the elements in a photo meets in a geometric pleasing composition along with an aesthetic framing and the all-together photo tells a story ... was being replaced with a frantic grabbing of every possible moment and never missing a beat.

The thing is, we've had RS cameras now from since...The Sony HC1 and the Canon HV20 from 2005 onwards. After those came out, we haven't really shot anything without RS. Those cams (1/3" sensors) had about 20-25ms of RS and it looked horrible then and it still does.

That was the goal, of course, but the West maintained that preventing Soviets from enjoying free access to foreign media was unacceptable; the kind of thing you’d only find in a dictatorship. Freedom of information was paramount to a Democratic society, they said.
