    • Sony FS700... worthwhile investment in 2016?
      I'm not sure where you got the idea that it shares a sensor with the F5/55/FS7. The sensor may be similar/based on that of the FS700, but it is not the same one. That being said, the sensor on it is still pretty nice. As I said before, with a recorder the image is great. Without one, I don't like the camera at all. Overall, the camera is a bit plastic-ey, and feels somewhat 'cheap.' If you rig it up and use a recorder, it's great. But that also means you need to factor those things into your price (though some FS700s are selling with rigs). I tend to see FS700 rigs for around $4k. So, I guess you need to weigh up as to whether it's a worthwhile investment over something like an FS5, URSA mini, C100... Depends on your needs. Keeping in mind it's an E-mount, so if native EF is important to you, it may not be your best option. Depends what you're after.

      Please refer to this thread, they are the same lenses as this auto focus mods:    Yes, I need to cut cinelux several times, shorter and shorter to make it better. The previous manual single focus mainly drawback is no aperture control, so I gave up.  But the ISCO's  mechanism is really good, it is an internal focus type.  
    • Sony FS700... worthwhile investment in 2016?
      Shorr answer: If you can handle the big neast of a rig + recorder: The imageit produces is Class A in 2016 market. It's the same sensor and identical image as the Sony FS7 and F5 and even F55 (but that one just adds Global shutter). And these cameras are compared and hold up to Alexa, Red, C300II, Amira, Blackmagic, anything.  The fact that you can use a speedbooster and give it a Full Frame Vistavison sensor look, the same size as an upcoming 8K VV RED and in 4K DCI 12bit RAW/ProRes with a great colour science, 14 stops of lattitude, 240p 2K DCI Continous,  So yes hold up and will hold up for the next 4-5 years in highest-end 4K video production, it's all about if you can handle the damn thing mechanicaly!!

      Wow, thanks for the extra photos. What was the lens that you used for the rear element? I like your approach, even if it sounds like a lot of trial and error would be involved. ; ) I recently recalibrate the rear element on my 16F to get it sharper, the required adjustments are very very small. so I suspect the slight blur on the right side of your photos are due to the alignment (not the rotation, but the z-space alignment) - or do you see this as symmetric in the uncropped output? Using the Cinelux as the front element makes sense to me. I find mine pretty super sharp - I typically pair it with the Canon 100mm Macro as the macro lenses have longer focus throw - which is also why manual lenses are great as taking lenses... Btw, Did you have to cut the cinelux? (I haven't taken mine apart so not sure if that's just the front).
