BrightTitan Cast 16: Hasselblad X1D and Netflix
It is clear that Apple needs to introduce a new Thunderbolt display because the current model was introduced decades ago. Even though there were leaks saying that Apple would introduce a new Thunderbolt display, later it was said that those leaks were not sure. However, here is yet another leak saying the exact same thing but this one sounds more realistic.
Some of you may know the company Hasselblad. It is a camera manufacturer which produces great cameras that cost a lot and they just introduced a new model called X1D.
First of all, it is Hasselblad’s first mirrorless medium format camera as well as it is their smallest one. It weights 725g ( 1.6 pounds ) which is relatively lighter than Canon 5D Mark III thats weights 860 g without lenses.
As you would expect, Hasselblad X1D has a metal body. There is a 3-inch 920k dot touchscreen on the back with a 2.4-megapixel electronic viewfinder.
Anyway, let’s talk about its specs. Hasselblad X1D has 50-megapixel medium-format CMOS imager which has approximately 2 times more surface area that the ones found in full-size DSLRs. X1D has also a dynamic range of 14 stops with 16-bit colors. Other features are the shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second to 60 minutes, 1080p video at 25fps and ISO range of 100 to 25600. However, one thing that is worth mentioning about the ISO is that Hasselblad insists the sizes of the pixels prevents ISO Noise.
Connectivity features are USB 3.0 support, Wi-Fi ac, and GPS. Also, like the previous model, X1D has two slots for SD cards.
You have two options with the lenses. First, if you already own H-system lenses, then you can use those with X1D but you would need an adaptor that is sold severely. Second, if you don’t have any lenses, then you will only have two options: A 45mm/f3.5 prime lens or a 90mm/f4.5 lens.
Well, don’t expect Hasselblad X1D to be cheap. It costs $8995 without any lenses and if you want to buy the camera with lenses and the price will reach to $11,290 ( with 45mm/f3.5 lens ) or even to $13,985 with both lenses.
Samsung started to make phones with Edge Screen with Note Edge which only had one curve, though. However, even though Samsung later added one curve with S6 Edge, the one thing in common was that there were always 2 variants; the regular one and the Edge one but according to the rumors, Note 7 will only have one variant.
If the rumors are true, then upcoming Note 7 will only have one screen: 5.8-inch Dual Edge Screen. I think it is a good step to make the Note series as their flagship series.
Anyway, other features of the Note 7 is SnapDragon 823, 6GB of RAM, 12MP Dual-pixel sensor and USB Type-C

Here is a surprise for you. Netflix just changed its logo … but not completely. This means that they have a new logo but they will use their new logo only in some areas.
Before talking about where they will use it, let’s look at the new logo. Unlike the old one ( but still it is the current, though. Anyway we will talk about that in the next paragraph ), it does not say “NETFLIX” but instead, it is just the letter “N but the curve at the bottom reminds the old one. Even though the color of the letter is very similar to the previous logo, the background is black while the previous one was white.
However, as I said at the beginning, it does not mean they completely changed their design. Still, you will see the old logo on netflix.com. However, the new logo will be used on mobile and social media.
