Is it plausible that GMail addresses are filtered in some way?
So the non-Gmail address apparently verifies. I did manage to get a Gmail alias (appending the +foobar to the end of the address side) to work, and is currently set, but damned if I get notifications.
I managed to get exactly one burst of emails from Phabricator after adding two additional emails and mashing the "Verify" button several hundred times. Not sure what is going on.
It isn't obsolete at all. If you participate in a project you would understand exactly why it is divided into such. Costs, time, and quality all need to orbit around such a breakdown. There is no such blurry distinction to anyone with experience in the field. If anything, the division is much clearer than it was twenty years ago.

Stowing for reference:
I sincerely hope both of you are considering an offline pipeline while theorizing. Offline to picture lock. Focus on that.

I'd encourage this to be a standalone unit as it is with almost every other camera manufacturer.
I did a secondary review and I think it seems fine. The more arty images would also be useful to keep the subject matter approachable, and any seem like good additions to spice up the rather dull material.
Should we consider colour characterization in this? If so, it would be worth considering a light box that enables us to push extremely wide primaries outward as far as the spectral locus permits.

EI shifts the window.

All of these dynamic range hacks fall to the dreaded issue of motion; what can work theoretically for still images, works appallingly for motion based work. Hence the vast majority of these cheats are relegated to the bin as marketing hacks, with the exception being an exceptionally constrained and limited shooting context.

Right. Except motion blur frame artifacting.
And motion artifacting?
I am open to any options that work toward a clear design goal. News / in-field documentary work would come with unique and possibly counter axis design goals when considering a cinema camera, for example. Alexa versus Amira come to mind.
Given that the sensor's data is effectively unknown, a “preview” could be interpreted to mean a few different things:
- A generic 709 that correctly transforms the sensor's data into meaningful values. That is, it requires defining the primaries relative to the sensor in relation to 709 / sRGB, hence the need for a 3D LUT which is the only method to adjust the saturation intents.
- A more creative 709 view that might offer slightly crunchier blacks and a softer rolloff. Some vendors take a little creative liberty with their 709 output. Still requires as 3D LUT.
- A unique preview LUT, or series of LUTs, as designed by a cinematographer for an estimation of looks for lighting usage on set. Would require a primaries transform to whatever display type chosen, and therefore 3D.

On the subject of powder coating or wrinkle coating, it might surprise you the number of times I have encountered cheesplates or like threaded elements that have been coated without consideration to the tolerances of the bolt. This often ends up with a need to re-tap the freshly coated objects such that a bolt can be accommodated.
I can see a cabling nightmare here. Cables jutting out the previs images, camera left or camera right, is going to almost always be a sub-optimal decision.
@Bertl: The idea is that the data, being captured in a scene-referred / sensor linear manner, becomes occluded near the top end. I am not entirely sure this applies to the current design, but I will outline the general concept.

On subject of compatibility with existing gear and other hardware, relates to T28: Document existing bolt patterns, specifications, and enclosure attachment points for equipment compatibility.

The last suggestion works fine.

I would add that typically there are two 3/8s for the addition of standard quick release plates to Ronford / Baker style quick release clasps.
I have seen a tandem before on prosumer (hate that word) plates, but industry plates are universally 3/8s, hence the discussion from yore requesting several around the body for mounting.
It should be a 3/8 standard coarse thread female, not 1/4 20.
This worries me as it is a pretty easy task that shouldn't be having speculative comments.
