    • Filling a void
      trying fill a void around the 85mm mark. Im not usually indecisive about things, but I really cant make up my mind. Used 80/20 (video) and 20% stills on a 6D. Currently have 35L II and 135L. I like my still lenses to have reliable AF which Tamron isnt always, and Rokinon doesnt even have. I like a fast lens as shooting weddings is a huge goal of mine. Stabilization would be nice, but not a deal breaker.   deciding between: -Rokinon 85mm 1.4 manual ($300) -Canon 24-105 IS ($500 used) -(new) Tamron 85 1.8 VC ($800)

    • Nikon 35-70mm AIS with 5D RAW ML
      Just buy 'n try. It's not like it's going to lose its value should you decide it's not your thing and put it up for sale again. Two fun 35-70mm I always keep an eye out for are from Angenieux and Leica. But you might need to wait a century for a real bargain to cross paths... I think the Nikon will do fine though, it's good value. The 24-105mm is a practical lens, mostly for stills, but I understand you'd want to spice it up a bit, so really go and explore your options... you might even want to think about replacing the Canon with the same range Sigma... that might change things up enough for you as well.
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      does anyone have a link to the latest version of the kino seed hack ? btw 200mbps seems to be the ceiling for this camera and I am fine with it. 200mbps looks fantastic and is completely changing my opinions of the camera and even my workflow. 200mbps is an absolute nightmare to edit and I recommend those struggling to run those files on their system to transcode to something like dnxhd 422 and edit those. Some may not see a benefit because the rendering of the image is relatively the same in terms of image processing but upon closer inspection I can not find any macroblocking even shooting handheld in high motion scenes. Detail is preserved in each frame minus the smudging,artifacting and macroblocking people encountered when grading the footage, converting to a LOG color space etc.   when uploading footage to vimeo (especially pro account users) I recommend exporting to cineform. It preserves a lot of detail thought i'd share    
    • My review of the JVC LS300
      Still not even had time to install the new firmware... and the little time I have for cameras outside of work is being stolen by the M8. But here is some footage.
      A quick edit of material gathered for a BTS to a friends photo exhibit. As some may know I shoot a lot of analog film, so when he needed a BTS for his Large Format project I was game.
      He is doing two things, recreating old pictures of his home town. And also takes portraits in the same old stiff ways they did back in the 50s, but in todays environments. 
      In this "draft version" I left in some shakes, zooms and sound for the sake of reviewing the LS300. The final version will be silent, probably B&W and much much longer.
      (its going to loop on a monitor in the museum)
      Its shot in HD 4:2:2 using only a Canon 35mm f2.0 IS lens. All closeups etc are done with the marvelous Prime Zoom.
      It was a good test of something I already knew, the LS300 is a killer Run-n-Gun camera. There was no directing, blocking, or retakes. Everything outside was was done in an hour and I have loads of footage.  Like I said, these are just some random shots from the material, I didn't spend more than 10 minutes on grading since its going to be B&W. 
      I might do a short version of the final video and put it on Vimeo later on.
