    • "Organic" looking lenses
      @Oliver Daniel agreed. I have a 50mm & 85mm takumar. I love how they look especially in black and white ! The helios 44 is so cheap I may get one on ebay if I can.   @TheRenaissanceMan thats exactly the look im going for. Definitely has an organic feel to the footage, reminds me of movies in the 80s. I've settled on getting the two lenses you mentioned
    • What is the truth about RED's and BLACK's cameras ?
      Just did another shoot with an Amira and a Scarlet. There's just no competition for Amira/Alexa in overall image. The Amira resolves more with upscaled 4K than the MX sensor does at native. Its noise pattern is fine and has soft colours, while the MX sensor's is blotchy yellow/purpleyblue. The colour and grading latitude are stunning with no need for raw in most circumstances, the hardware and software are rock solid. It's just jaw dropping to use in post. BUT I can't justify the cost, so an older Scarlet for £5,000 for the whole kit was more sensible. A decent Amira setup will cost you £35,000. I've not used Dragon sensor yet. An MX sensor still kicks most images, it's just when you put it next to the Arri sensor, it's a jaw dropper. Next shoot though will be two C100s. It's all horses for courses as they say.
    • DJI Osmo and X5/X5R - what do we know?
      Have used the OSMO with the X3 so can just tell you about the operational bit and not the image quality. It's pretty much good to go out of the box. Of course it's best you customize the settings like the the sensitivity/deadband etc as per your liking. It's worked better with iPhones than android devices with us, but did crash a lot in 4K (DCI not UHD). I believe a firmware upgrade has increased the reliability and battery life. IT works well for following, orbiting and panning. The panning does feel "electronic" but it's good. Mind you it's quite light so keeping your horizon level can be a bit of a challenge at times. I think the z-axis arm should solve this.  
    • "Organic" looking lenses
      Man, i was reading the thread and thinking "how can no one reccomend the Helios 44-2 ?" 
      How do you get more "organic" than that ? :D
