North Korea’s latest missile launch could have reached the entire continental United States, Japan’s defense minister said on Friday. The alleged intercontinental ballistic missile, according to Japanese Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada, traveled 1,000 kilometers at a maximum height of 6,000 kilometers, the Associated Press reported. The weapon, he claimed, has a range in excess of 15,000 kilometers, depending on the weight of a payload to be attached to the missile, “in which case it could cover the entire American continent”. According to the minister, the missile was probably launched at a high angle given the height.

Notably, Friday’s missile launch is considered North Korea’s second major weapons test this month, according to its neighbors. Also, the alleged intercontinental ballistic missile landed near Japanese territorial seas.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said during a speech from Bangkok that the missile, believed to be an ICBM, fell inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ). Kishida told the media, “North Korea has repeatedly engaged in provocative actions with unprecedented frequency, and I want to strongly reiterate that these actions cannot be tolerated,” the Japan Times reported. He even pointed out that Japan had denounced the recent missile launches.

The Japanese Prime Minister went on to say that they will continue to make every effort to acquire data and monitor, cooperating closely with the United States and working trilaterally with the United States and South Korea with a view to of the total denuclearization of North Korea.

North Korean missile launch

According to the Tokyo Defense Ministry, the ICBM-class missile was fired east from the west coast of North Korea around 10:14 a.m. (local time) and landed in the seas about 210 kilometers east. West of Oshima, Hokkaido Prefecture. around 11:20 a.m. (local time). Notably, Japan’s EEZ extends 370 kilometers (200 nautical miles) from its coast.

The launch was the latest in a series of weapons tests North Korea has carried out recently in retaliation for what it sees as U.S. hostility. Some analysts say China and Russia’s opposition to US efforts to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea is one of the reasons the North is able to carry out such a wave of nuclear testing. .

Experts say a North Korean ICBM fired on November 3 crashed into the water following a stage separation and did not complete its intended mission.

Gills advanced to the second round of the Emirates FA Cup after beating AFC Fylde at ME7.

Lewis Walker scored the game’s only goal as Gillingham qualified for the Emirates FA Cup second round with a 1-0 win over AFC Fylde at MEMS Priestfield Stadium.

Neil Harris made five changes to the starting XI which were beaten by Northampton at the weekend. Jake Turner, Cheye Alexander, Max Ehmer, Scott Kashket and Lewis Walker all made the XI.

Glenn Morris was not on the team after being injured on Saturday. Taite Holtam was among the submarines.

Walker had Gillingham’s first chance in the ninth minute. Stuart O’Keefe made a quick throw, which the striker got in the end. The former QPR man advanced into the box but missed the target from a difficult angle.

Moments later, Kashket won a penalty after being knocked down by Alex Whitmore. The Gills striker took the kick himself, he sent the keeper the wrong way but guided the effort just wide.

Gills began to take control of the game as he continued to press for AFC Fylde’s goal. The ball was well placed for Dom Jefferies to shoot from 12 yards out, but he couldn’t make clear contact with his effort as he swung away from the post with a slipping defense at the last moment to discourage him.

Nick Haughton netted AFC Fylde’s first shot on target in the 22nd minute. The midfielder found space to shoot from around 20 yards out, but his curling effort proved to be a comfortable save for Jake Turner.

Walker gave Gillingham the lead minutes before the break. Gills gained possession high up the field and the ball was played to the striker, who went one-on-one. Neal was coming to close Walker, but he calmly placed him past the visiting keeper.

HALF-TIME: Gillingham 1-0 AFC Fylde

Haughton forced Turner into a save in the 50th minute as he tried to catch Gills keeper out of reach. It was a powerful shot, which Turner had to drive over the bar for a corner, which went nowhere.

Alexander made an important header clearance to prevent Joe Rowley from having a huge chance to equalise. Haughton’s cross into the box appeared to be on a plate for Rowley to drive home, but Alexander was on hand to get the all-important touch and keep Gillingham in front.

Kashket nearly made it two for the hosts as he did well to force his way into the AFC Fylde penalty area on the left side. However, he saw his effort saved by Neal, who came to close the shot.

Emeka Obi forced Turner to a save in the 64th minute. After a few blocks, the ball found its way to Obi, who was 20 yards from goal. He hit the effort with a lot of power, but Turner did a good job of making up the effort.

The visitors continued to search for an equalizer as they put Gillingham behind four and a goal under pressure. However, Neil Harris’ men remained strong as the hosts progressed to the second round, where they will travel to Dagenham and Redbridge.

Adam Ruzicka knows very well the incredible opportunity that is offered to him.

With Jonathan Huberdeau sidelined with injury, the big forward found himself in the Flames lineup in his place, skating alongside Elias Lindholm and Tyler Toffoli.

He put in an incredible performance on Saturday night – as did several of his teammates, including Lindholm and Jacob Markstrom – as the Flames ended a seven-game losing streak with a massive 3-2 win over the surging Jets. .

Ruzicka netted a goal and an assist, as did Lindholm, while Trevor Lewis scored the game-winning goal for the Flames, who are now 6-6-2.

Rasmus Andersson finished with a pair of helpers.

The scorching Jets — who entered the game on a three-game winning streak and had at least one point in their last seven outings — are now 8-4-1.

The Flames outshot the Jets 35-23, but the visitors had plenty of Category A scoring opportunities and Markstrom was incredible, including making a favorite first save of the year in the first period (more details here). below). He was named the game’s first star.

It was an entertaining and aggressive game between two great physical teams, with the Flames beating the Jets 27-16.

Chris Tanev returned to the line-up after injury, with the hard-hitting defender playing alongside Connor Mackeywho retreated after being a healthy scratch in the past two outings.

Unsurprisingly, Tanev made a huge impact in the tilt, especially on the penalty spot where he continued to be a shot-blocking machine.

The Calgary PK made a perfect 3 against 3 in the evening, notably killing a two-point lead.

The Flames opened the scoring at 3:23 of the first period when Ruzicka threw a backhand to the net from a tight angle near the boards near the goal line which was knocked down by Lindholm past Connor Hellebuyck for his fifth of the season.

It was the fifth straight game the Flames have lit the lamp first.

Lindholm was so quick to put his tape on the puck – with Mark Scheifele glued to his hip – that Ruzicka was first credited with the goal on NHL.com until they took another look. .

Markstrom made one of the most incredible saves you’ll ever see later in the first, windmilling backwards to deflect it with your glove and absolutely rob Scheifele.

What could be more impressive than a 10-beller – maybe a 25-beller in honor of his number?

The Jets equalized at 5:14 after a turnover in the Calgary zone, Neal Pionk’s shot from above deflecting Mackey then the post and into it.

The home side regained the lead when Lindholm managed to shake off Scheifele in the neutral zone which led to a 2v1, with Ruzicka finishing a pass with a home throw-in before a Hellybuyck could cross his crease .

After the two teams traded power-play chances in the second period, Markstrom made another fabulous save when he kicked out his left pad on a tight offer from Mason Appleton.

The Flames once again came up one point with 1:29 left in the period while shorthanded, Mikael Backlund get the puck and flip it out of the zone and then catch it himself in the neutral zone, leading to a 2 on 1 where he passed to Lewis who crossed the crease to put the puck around Hellybuyck with a backhand like he locked up the brakes for the 10th shortie of his career.

Rangers crumble to win at St Johnstone as pressure mounts on Van Bronckhorst | Scottish Premiership https://tunalifotograf.com/rangers-crumble-to-win-at-st-johnstone-as-pressure-mounts-on-van-bronckhorst-scottish-premiership/ Sun, 06 Nov 2022 15:11:00 +0000 https://tunalifotograf.com/rangers-crumble-to-win-at-st-johnstone-as-pressure-mounts-on-van-bronckhorst-scottish-premiership/ Pressure has piled on Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst after a shock 2-1 loss to St Johnstone left them seven points behind Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Pressure has piled on Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst after a shock 2-1 loss to St Johnstone left them seven points behind Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers dominated the first half at McDiarmid Park but found themselves in the 41st minute, when 24-year-old winger James Brown thundered in a stunning drive from 25 yards for his first senior goal.

Former Rangers striker Nicky Clark grabbed a second in the 62nd minute, and as James Tavernier pulled one back in the 73rd minute the visitors couldn’t find an equaliser. Seething fans expressed their frustration at the final whistle after Rangers’ first defeat at Perth for 12 years.

There had seemed little prospect of an upset despite an ongoing injury crisis at Ibrox. Van Bronckhorst was happy to welcome centre-back Ben Davies following a groin complaint while midfielder John Lundstram was back after a one-game ban.

Saints manager Callum Davidson has revealed an illness bug has affected his players, with captain Liam Gordon missing. Elliott Parish has taken over for injured Remi Matthews with Ross Sinclair on the bench after being recalled from his loan spell at Montrose.

Rangers started the game strong and in the sixth minute Parish had to save Malik Tillman’s effort from a tight angle following Tavernier’s cross. Parish then dove low to his left to push a decent drive from Lundstram around the post for a corner. In the 11th minute, Antonio Colak was sent on goal by Tillman, but veteran defender Andrew Considine made sure the Croatian striker didn’t get a shot on goal.

As St Johnstone’s goal siege continued, Rangers winger Fashion Sakala leaped over defender Adam Montgomery to head a Borna Barisic corner onto the crossbar. As half-time approached, the home side took the lead after a mix-up between Lundstram and Sakala gave away the ball.

Stevie May’s shot from the edge of the box was blocked by Brown, who thundered past Allan McGregor for a historic goal. It was the third successive league game in which Rangers had conceded first, and the hosts doubled their lead just after the hour mark after Alfredo Morelos and Scott Arfield came on for Rangers.

May beat 18-year-old defender Leon King on the touchline and crossed for Clark, who moved past Barisic at the near post to flick the ball past McGregor. The traveling fans behind goal immediately turned their anger on van Bronckhorst, as Lundstram sent a left-footed shot from the edge of the penalty area outside the post.

Tavernier put Rangers back in the game with a shot from the edge of the box after Considine headed in a corner. The visitors put on the pressure, Lundstram hitting the bar from 25 yards out before Parish saved a late Tavernier header. Rangers kept pushing but ran out of time – as did, perhaps, Van Bronckhorst.

Is Andrei Kuzmenko one of the Canucks’ most dynamic forwards? 4 takeaways from his NHL debut https://tunalifotograf.com/is-andrei-kuzmenko-one-of-the-canucks-most-dynamic-forwards-4-takeaways-from-his-nhl-debut/ Thu, 03 Nov 2022 22:50:28 +0000 https://tunalifotograf.com/is-andrei-kuzmenko-one-of-the-canucks-most-dynamic-forwards-4-takeaways-from-his-nhl-debut/ Andrei Kuzmenko was one of the Canucks’ biggest jokers this season.

Andrei Kuzmenko was one of the Canucks’ biggest jokers this season. The skilled and elusive winger was Russia’s top free agent in the KHL last summer and was sought after by many teams in the league. Vancouver won the contest and signed him to a one-year ELC, the maximum allowed under the CBA given his age, immediately adding a valuable asset to the organization for, essentially, free.

It was a home run for a Canucks team that needed to inject cheap, productive talent into the roster without a high acquisition cost in terms of trade chips.

European free agents, however, are completely unknown until they arrive in the NHL. Sometimes you strike gold with a bona fide star like Artemi Panarin, others like Vadim Shipachyov go out immediately and there are tons of results in between.

We officially hit the 10-game milestone for the Kuzmenko Project in Vancouver, with the 26-year-old scoring three goals and six points. It’s obviously not a large enough sample of games to draw conclusions from, but there’s still a lot we can glean from his NHL streak so far in terms of strengths, weaknesses, and potential impact at the future. Here are four observations/takeaways.

Predatory offensive instincts in a hurry

One of the most underrated skills in hockey is a forward’s natural offensive instinct to constantly open up and find soft ice where he can get shots. This talent flies under the radar because it’s not as flashy as blazing speed, soft shots, or raw strength towards the net. But finding time and space in the premium areas of the ice is practical and necessary. What’s the point of having a player with a sniper, for example, if he never has the intelligence to create the space to actually shoot?

This is where Kuzmenko has done a smart job of carving out a place for himself. He’s playing with top talent all the time, with Elias Pettersson at five-on-five and on the first-unit power play. Kuzmenko isn’t an electric puck-carrier, so he understands his job is to make sure he consistently opens up in dangerous pockets in the offensive zone, while leaving distribution responsibilities to Pettersson. Kuzmenko has pulled it off time and time again, which is why his five-on-five individual shooting rate ranks 51st among all NHL forwards who have played at least 50 minutes this season. He produced 14 high-risk five-on-five chances according to Natural Stat Trick, which leads the Canucks and is tied for 22nd among forwards.

5v5 High Risk Luck Bosses

A lot of Kuzmenko’s damage came from rushing attacks, where he showed predatory instincts with and without the puck. That’s why he and Pettersson clicked so well – Kuzmenko understands optimal spacing and takes smart, deliberate routes to beat defenders and become a passing option. Below is a great example of a power play regroup rush chance where Kuzmenko takes the outside lane to covertly beat the defender rather than trying to win a straight run.

When JT Miller picked up the puck on the regroup, Kuzmenko could have made a straight line and continued to hit to the left side as the arrow indicates.

But for that to work, he would have had to win a run and receive the puck at an awkward angle where it would have been difficult for him to get a good shot, especially with a right fielder on his back. Instead, knowing that Miller had Bo Horvat as a short passing option if needed, he took more of a backdoor route to get behind his control undetected.

animated GIF

Kuzmenko is able to create dangerous rush chances even when his team has no odd rush. When attacking in a three-on-three or two-on-two setting, the biggest thing you want to avoid is being in a flat position as attackers – it’s too easy to defend. Kuzmenko seems to have an innate understanding of how to effectively stagger players to add layers to a rushing attack. In the footage below, he entered the zone on a non-threatening two-on-two with Curtis Lazar, with both players on the same flat horizontal plane.

Kuzmenko stopped and cut sideways to intersect with Lazar which completely changed the dynamics of the race. Lazar ended up tipping Kuzmenko’s high shot for a goal.

animated GIF

Here’s an example of Kuzmenko applying the same concept, except without the puck. What starts out as an ordinary three-on-three quickly turns dangerous as Kuzmenko aggressively takes the outside lane to get behind the defence.

animated GIF

He showed the same understanding on a Garland rush below. Instead of heading to the net, Kuzmenko kept itself as a staggered trailer option, which gave a decent look.

animated GIF

You also like to see quick one-touch passes like this:

Sneaky, clever ability to open the backdoor, live in the front of the net

Some coaches stereotype Russian players as skilled perimeter players who don’t have a nose for fat spots. As for Kuzmenko, he did all of his actual scoring around the blue paint.

Kuzmenko’s knack for chasing open ice on the backdoor specifically led to two of his three goals and plenty of additional Category A chances. It was the bread and butter of his role in the power play of the first unit since he has not been relied on too often as a playmaker below the goal line.

The objectives themselves are tap-ins, but it takes hard work and smart timing to slip into those positions undetected.

animated GIF

animated GIF

Kuzmenko’s goal against the Penguins was a reward for the persistence he showed going to the net and trying to screen goalies. He is also unlucky not to have scored more goals at this stage given the volume of chances he has generated. Kuzmenko shot just 4.76% five-for-five, with one goal to score, while Natural Stat Trick’s expected goals model estimates that an average league finisher would have buried three goals with the same quality of occasions.

That means Kuzmenko is likely due for a rebound, which makes sense considering a few backdoor plays he was absolutely robbed on. Either that or he’s a bad finisher.

Kuzmenko’s defensive flaws

Bruce Boudreau didn’t mince words when I asked if Kuzmenko’s defensive game needed improvement. The answer was clear “he knows he has to be a little better”. This definitely follows when watching gameplay footage.

Kuzmenko can be caught staring at the puck and doesn’t check his shoulder often enough to keep an eye on the direction of his control. Below you will see an example. Carolina is very clearly going to win the loose puck and Kuzmenko is the deepest back. Instead of looping and following Jordan Staal, he takes an odd route that leaves Staal wide open to set up the Canes’ critical 3-1 goal.

animated GIF

He also has a tendency to stop moving his feet, which, coupled with a lack of shoulder control, leaves him vulnerable to a defensive breakdown like the one below.

animated GIF

Kuzmenko’s wall work on escape attempts has also been inconsistent. There are times when he looks sharp making a quick play under pressure, but there are other times when it has led to problems. Here is an example of turnover.

animated GIF

Against the Penguins, there was a tough streak where he didn’t come back into the defensive zone at all to help. Jack Rathbone circled the puck around the boards in a position where the winger (Kuzmenko) should have been the first player on the puck. Instead, Kuzmenko fully retreated and Tyler Myers was awarded a penalty.

animated GIF

What about the Pettersson factor?

Kuzmenko’s assessment is tricky because, for the most part, he’s been stapled to Pettersson’s flank. Pettersson’s ability to make controlled offensive plays in transition is unmatched on this list. Given Kuzmenko’s early success, especially when he finds the ice open and receives passes, it’s fair to wonder if he would be significantly less effective without Pettersson.

The Pettersson/Kuzmenko duo, however, controlled nearly 60% of the five-on-five shots. Pettersson is unquestionably the focal point and main driver of this gaming success, but those kinds of numbers are impossible to achieve without Kuzmenko also adding significant value.

Kuzmenko profiles as an add-on piece for a scoring line rather than the engine. With that in mind, Vancouver needs to be calculated on how they approach Kuzmenko’s future this offseason until they can gather more information on whether he can move up and down in the top nine or if he will. is a one-dimensional fit.

Yusuf Maart scored a sensational long-range goal to give the Kaizer Chiefs a 1-0 win over Soweto derby rivals Orlando Pirates in a contested DStv Premiership clash at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Maart’s magnificent strike handed the Amakhosi a fourth straight official win over the Buccaneers – something they haven’t achieved since winning six in a row in the early 1990s – and saw them leapfrog their rivals in third place in the log with 21 points. The Pirates dropped to fifth place with 19 points.

The Bucs were the more aggressive team early on and created the first clear chance in the fourth minute, with Kermit Erasmus on Monnapule Saleng’s start on the right side of the penalty area, but the weak effort from the attacking from a tight angle was blocked by the legs of goalkeeper Brandon Petersen.

The Chiefs quickly settled into the game and began dominating possession, creating half chances for Keagan Dolly (whose deflected effort was deflected by Siyabonga Mpontshane) and Khama Billiat (who couldn’t get a clean connection at the far post from Dillon Solomons’ cross) inside the opening quarter-hour.

Billiat had another chance just after the middle of the first half when he met Dolly’s free kick from the left flank, but his header flashed high and away from the target.

The Pirates then suffered a blow when defender Innocent Maela appeared to come to a halt with a hamstring strain, necessitating the introduction of Paseka Mako as a 28th-minute substitute.

The next threat on goal came from Erasmus just after the half-hour mark, the Pirates striker turning away from a few defenders outside the box before sending a skidding left-footed effort wide wide of the brand.

The Chiefs created two great chances to take the lead in the 34th and 36th minutes, both of which put the quick Ashley Du Preez behind Olisa Ndah, but both times the striker was denied one-on-one by the goalkeeper Mpontshane.

Amakhosi’s dominance in the first half prompted a double change early in the second stanza for the Buccaneers, who introduced Fortune Makaringe and Kabelo Dlamini in an attempt to regain control.

Yet the all-black side were forced into another injury change just before the hour mark when Goodman Mosele succumbed to what appeared to be a knee problem, with Ben Motshwari parachuting into central midfield.

In the 61st minute, Pirates’ attack finally clicked again, as Mako’s run from the left led to a goal sight for Erasmus, who sent a shot through a crowd of defenders and wide wide. from Peterson’s left post.

The stalemate was broken in extraordinary fashion in the 74th minute, as Chiefs’ Yusuf Maart scored one of the greatest goals in Soweto derby history.

The ball was stolen in the middle of the park and mixed into Maart, who spotted Mpontshane off his line and went for goal a few yards inside his own half – the ball drifted perfectly out of the way of the keeper and gave the Amakhosi a deserved lead.

The Pirates looked for a quick response as shots from Saleng and Motshwari deflected off target, but those hopeful efforts were as close as they came to finding an equaliser, as the Chiefs saw the rest of the game with fierce determination in defence.

The Pirates will then be in action on Saturday November 5 when they take on AmaZulu in the MTN8 Final, while the Chiefs’ next match will be against the Buccaneers in the new Carling Black Label Cup on Saturday November 12.

Sony has launched the $3,900 A7R V, its latest mirrorless camera designed for shooting portraits, landscapes and other subjects that require as much resolution as possible. The new model has the same 61-megapixel resolution as the A7R IV, but features a much more powerful new Bionz XR processor that enables improved AI autofocus, better shake reduction and 8K 24p video.

The main improvement is in autofocus, as the A7R V is Sony’s first camera to introduce something called “human pose estimation”. The system can see 20 different points in the human body and thus determine where the eye is supposed to be. This allows him to accurately track someone who might move and turn away from the camera, and to continue following them even if they disappear from view for a moment. Besides that, he can now select different subjects like cars, trains, plains, animals and insects.

Although the A7R V is primarily aimed at photographers, it’s also much better than ever in video. Where the A7R IV was limited to 8-bit 4K at 30 fps with cropping or line skipping, the A7R V now records 8K video at up to 24 fps, as well as 6.2K without line skipping or line-gathering. pixels. With the same heatsink as the A7S III, it allows unlimited 4K recording and up to 30 minutes of 8K capture.

It can also handle oversampled 10-bit 4K video using the full width of the sensor at up to 30fps, or 60fps with a 1.2x crop. You can also capture 16-bit RAW video to external recorders at up to 4K 60p.

Sony has upgraded the In-Body Stabilization System (IBS) from 5.5 to 8 stops, which now matches what Canon can do with its similarly priced EOS R5. And instead of the tilting screen used in the A7R IV, the new model has a fully articulating screen that makes it more useful for wide-angle shooting, video and more.

The A7R V shoots at the same 10fps speeds as before, which is impressive for such a high resolution camera. However, it can now shoot compressed RAW files rather than just uncompressed as before. The buffer can also handle up to 583 shots, allowing you to shoot for a long period of time in bursts.

It has a long list of other attractive features, including a 9.44 million-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) and two card slots that accept fast (but expensive) CFexpress Type A or UHS-II cards. Another new feature is multishot pixel shifting (tripod use only) to compose 16 shots into a single 240.8-megapixel image using AI processing to automatically detect and correct movement between frames.

The list goes on with AI-powered white balance, focus stacking up to 299 frames for increased depth of field, Sony’s Cinetone color profile for a more cinematic look, an updated body updated with watch faces and controls similar to the A7 IV, USB-C charging with Power Delivery and native webcam compatibility. The Sony A7R V is expected to arrive in December for $3,900.

PA

Jose Mourinho’s physical Roma side have come close to most teams to keep Napoli out of the net.

In the end, however, Napoli’s vast array of talented forwards once again proved too much to handle.

Victor Osimhen scored with 10 minutes remaining and Serie A leaders Napoli won 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday to equal a club record with their 11th straight win in all competitions.

And what a goal it was.

Osimhen collected a ball over the top, smashed his way past imposing Roma centre-back Chris Smalling and fired a low shot into the other side of the net from an almost impossible angle on the right flank.

“Roma gave us a hard time but we showed that Napoli are hard to beat,” said Osimhen.

Napoli again took a three-point lead over defending champions AC Milan, who beat Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza on Saturday. Roma remained fifth.

Roma did not produce any shots on goal.

“I feel a sense of injustice and I embrace my players because they did everything possible and I think they did enough to avoid defeat,” Mourinho said. “We knew whoever scored a goal would win, and that was Napoli.”

The only other time Napoli have won 11 games in a row came in 1986 when Diego Maradona played for the club. Maradona, who died in 2020, then led Napoli to their only two Serie A titles in 1987 and 1990.

Napoli have won seven in a row in Serie A with four Champions League wins – qualifying for the knockout stage with two games to spare with lopsided wins over Liverpool, Rangers and Ajax.

Napoli embarrassed Liverpool 4-1 and scored 10 in two appearances for Ajax.

It was a sweet victory for Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti, who has coached Roma twice. He infamously became the target of fan anger for his treatment of Francesco Totti as the club icon retired on his second spell in the capital.

Spalletti has made all the right choices with Napoli this season. Giacomo Raspadori and Giovanni Simeone were good substitutes for Osimhen when the Nigerian striker was recently injured, and both scored from the bench as well. But Spalletti kept Osimhen until the end and was rewarded with his choice.

Napoli also had a potential first-half goal from Tanguy Ndombele ruled out by VAR. The referee initially appeared to whistle a foul on Roma goalkeeper Rui Patrício, but replays showed the keeper had gotten his hands on the ball before making contact with Ndombele.

Mourinho demanded a yellow card for Ndombele, accusing the French midfielder of diving.

Mourinho maintained his commentary on the touchline and received a yellow card for dissent early in the second half as Napoli began to advance more often.

ATALANTA AND UDINESE BEATEN

Atalanta and Udinese, two provincial clubs that impressed at the start of the season, both lost at home.

Atalanta’s unbeaten start ended in a 2-0 loss to surging Lazio while Udinese were beaten 2-1 by Torino for their first league defeat since matchday one.

Mattia Zaccagni and Felipe Anderson scored for Lazio at the start of each half respectively, as the Roma club failed to miss injured centre-forward Ciro Immobile.

It was Lazio’s sixth consecutive clean sheet and the victory propelled Lazio past third-placed Atalanta, albeit level on points with the Bergamo club.

Atalanta striker Luis Muriel received his second yellow card in the 90th minute.

Goals from Ola Aina and Pietro Pellegri helped Torino secure their first league win in over a month.

It was Udinese’s first league defeat since a 4-2 loss to defending champions AC Milan on 13 August. He has won six matches in a row but has drawn his last two in Serie A – against Atalanta and Lazio.

Udinese, also eliminated from the Italian Cup by Monza in midweek, remained sixth.

Torino moved up to ninth place.

Moreover, Thiago Motta picked up his first Serie A win as Bologna manager as his side beat compatriot Lecce 2-0.

Bologna had lost three of Motta’s four league games in charge, drawing the other.

EWING, NJ – The TCNJ men’s soccer team fell behind early on Wednesday night and were unable to make up the loss, losing to Rowan 5-0.

The Profs came out of the gate firing, scoring twice in the opening five minutes and changing.

The Lions had the opportunity to cut the lead half to half an hour when JohnAnthony Gallina sent a nice overhand pass to Justin Dominique. This pass knocked the keeper out of the net and charged Dominique. The goalkeeper wasn’t fooled by Dominique’s movements as he slipped in for the tackle.

Just ten minutes later it was Dominique who wreaked havoc up front again this time on a Carraha through ball down the left side. The 6’4″ senior looked like he had an angle to shoot but the opportunity was tarnished by another slippery defender Rowan.

TCNJ entered the half 2-0. No less than 5 minutes into the second, Dominique found himself knocking on the door again with a header that ricocheted off the post from a Colin Kenville corner kick.

After heading the post, Rowan held the Lions scoreless for the final 40 minutes while scoring two more goals to secure the 5-0 victory.

Walker Smith reached a career high in saves on Wednesday with eight saves in the evening.

The TCNJ men’s soccer is back in action on Saturday as they celebrate senior day against the NJCU which kicks off at 6:00 p.m.

Phone cameras have improved year by year, but no matter how much they improve, they still fall short of professional cameras. This year is different.

Last year, I did a fun comparison between my Canon R5 and my iPhone 13 Pro. These results were pretty impressive, so much so that I ended up printing images from this test to see how far we could push the iPhone 13 Pro image. Although I was happy with the results, at no time did I inspect the images and felt comfortable saying that I could shoot with the iPhone instead of my Canon R5 given the two options. I was expecting the same results this year, and halfway through editing my images, I realized something was different.

Throughout these tests, I shot in raw on my Canon R5 and iPhone 14 Pro. I only used the built-in camera app on the iPhone because last year I had issues with third-party apps so close to release. It’s also the most realistic in practice, as it’s built right into iOS. I only tested the new “main” camera (24mm/1x) as it got the new 48mp sensor while the telephoto and wide angle lenses didn’t receive upgrades significant enough to warrant comparisons this year. All photos were taken on a tripod and I will provide the resulting settings that the iPhone used automatically. All photos on the Canon R5 were taken in combination with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L adapted to different settings that you will find throughout the article.

All images have been edited using only Lightroom Classic. I think the most authentic way to do this comparison was to start by editing my Canon R5 images, as if I was editing them for my portfolio. Then I would edit the iPhone 14 Pro images to best match the Canon images. Throughout this article, I will present images from “Camera A” and “Camera B”. These will be mixed throughout the test, but I challenge you to browse through the images and see if you can guess which image is taken from each camera. The answer will be located after the article gallery.

First sunrise

Last year, I remember being very surprised that the iPhone could capture a whole range of light at sunrise, and it’s even better this year with the iPhone 14 Pro. This scene had no cloud cover, so the light quickly turned harsh, resulting in a scene with huge dynamic range, something that persists throughout many of these tests.

Camera settings:

  • Canon R5: f/11, 1/40 sec, ISO 100
  • iPhone 14 Pro: f/1.8, 1/1000 sec, ISO 100

Notice the shadow areas compared to these snow capped peaks hit by bright direct light. Both cameras were able to capture that amount of dynamic range without too much trouble, a noticeable improvement over last year for the iPhone. This is where things get interesting and what completely blew my mind when editing the photos. Zooming in was always where the iPhone image collapsed to immediately reveal which camera was taking each frame. Prepare yourselves.

Zooming to 100% on both images, do you see what I see? I let the pictures speak for themselves. If you want to download this raw file for yourself, you can find the updated link in the video above.

blue hour

Low light is where all small sensors struggle, and phone sensors are the smallest of the bunch. Any review you read will continually mention that low-light performance is directly correlated to sensor size. This was the toughest test of this year’s comparison for the iPhone 14 Pro.

Camera settings:

  • Canon R5: f/8, 1/4 sec, ISO 100
  • iPhone 14 Pro: f/1.8, 1/115 sec, ISO 125

Still, the results, especially at smaller resolutions, are nothing short of amazing. I had trouble matching the iPhone image to the R5, but not necessarily because the data isn’t there to match it. That’s largely because it’s the image I’ve edited the most. Artistically speaking, this was the most pleasing scene of the whole comparison, so I pushed the Canon R5 image as far as I could. Trying to get similar highlights, detail and color science between the two cameras was a challenge, so you can definitely see a bit of that in play here.

Zooming in to 100%, you will notice a slight difference in quality between the two cameras. After taking these images and learning the strengths and weaknesses of the iPhone 14 Pro, shadow recovery in low light scenes like this will have degraded quality. That being said, I’m still very impressed with the final image. I’m also very curious how this scene would have turned out if I had used an app like Halide to adjust my ISO and shutter speed. If you are interested in more tests like this, let me know in the comments.

That’s how the picture started, straight from the iPhone. Keeping in mind that almost all iPhone raw photos look like a black hole in scenes like this. This should provide context into which the image was pushed into the edit.

second sunrise

Another sunrise in the blue sky with great dynamic range, so much, in fact, that many photographers around me were taking bracketed shots, but I was able to capture it all in one exposure with both cameras.

Camera settings:

  • Canon R5: f/8, 1/30 sec, ISO 100
  • iPhone 14 Pro: f/1.8, 1/580 sec, ISO 80

As someone who rarely photographs sunrises or sunsets against blue skies, I decided to edit this image a little differently from my usual style. Many of you reading this could very easily take an image like this and try to give it a “movie” look, or you could push the contrast hard to create a high-key image, or you could even replace the heaven if your heart willed. So, I tried myself with a different editing style to see how the iPhone 14 Pro handled such editing.

Zooming in to 100% you’ll see a bit of loss of detail in the shadows, just like our blue hour shot. I notice that shadow detail is lost a bit, while any areas that had adequate light retain information a bit better.

The details

In this final image, we’re testing a more realistic time for those of you who don’t wake up for sunrise or stay out for sunset. This was taken a few hours before sunset, giving us long shadows, a ton of contrast and most importantly testing how much detail the iPhone 14 Pro can pick up in a busy scene.

Camera settings:

  • Canon R5: f/5.6, 1/40 sec, ISO 100
  • iPhone 14 Pro: f/1.8, 1/640 sec, ISO 100

This was another absolutely impressive image for the iPhone 14 Pro. A scene with plenty of light to work with gives us an immense amount of detail in both images. I would be surprised if you could tell the difference between these two images without cropping.

Zooming to 100% left me at a loss for words. Not only is the image filled with detail, but highlight retention and shadows are also present. It’s not something I could have shown you last year, where zooming in would have lost way too much detail in a scene like this. It was this photo that literally made me walk away from Lightroom and walk around feeling like I got results.

During this walk, I had fleeting thoughts: “Am I seeing this correctly?” “Did I accidentally edit two Canon R5 images?” “It does not go well.” I don’t use hyperbole lightly when I say I could easily see myself taking pictures with the iPhone 14 Pro that will end up in my portfolio or for sale on my print site. This is not a camera replacement. It should be obvious that there are a lot of limitations. However, if I’m about to pack a bag and climb a mountain, and something magical happens without my camera by my side and I’m taking pictures with the iPhone 14 Pro, I would be professionally satisfied results under the right circumstances.

Another finding in this year’s test was that using the ApplePro Raw profile in Lightroom didn’t give me the best results. By accident, I discovered that I had an easier time matching images from iPhone to Canon using the built-in Apple profile. Above you’ll see the same image side by side where I couldn’t quite get the highlights with ApplePro Raw. I would love to hear your experience below if you have any edits to make to these images. If you want to see more pixels, my thoughts, and a little more about editing these images, be sure to watch the video located in the article.

Below is a gallery of all the images in this comparison so you can enlarge them a bit more. Also included are a few images straight out of the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera, which are comically bad compared to their raw counterparts. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments, as this was an eye-opening experience for me.

The iPhone is: ABAB
