FS: Dog Schidt Optiks Flare Factory 58mm & 38 mm EF Mount
By Ed Andrews
I'm selling my Dog Schidt Optiks Flare Factory 58 with the ff38 wide angle attachment.
They are really great lenses but I'm just reassessing my kit and they seem surplus to requirements, and I need the money for other stuff.
I've only used the ff58 about three times in the last year, and the ff38 I've just received and haven't actually used it, so it's brand new.
The FF58 was custom made to order with the following specs:
-Variable Circular Aperture ƒ2 - ƒ16
- An amber/magenta High Prominence Tint for flaring
- Contrast = Lower
- Element Separation
- Brushed Metal finish
I'm looking for somewhere in region of £500. I'm based in London so local pick up much preferred but can send elsewhere if buyer is willing to cover costs.
Here's some pcitures as well examples shots of flare and bokeh - ignore the horse mask!
Canon FD to PL Mount
I'm really considering making a big upgrade to the URSA, but I've already invested in a fleet of Canon FDs. I've been doing some research on FD to PL mounts without a lot of luck. I know ARRI make an FD adapter to the ARRI mount (PL??) but besides that seems there's zilch out there. Some talk about machining the lenses to fit the new flange but I was hoping someone here knows of something...
3 camera test
I did a rough test between three cameras: the Nikon D750, Lumix GH2, and Black Magic Pocket Camera. I wanted to see how their videos compared in general. I'm swamped in work, so I couldn't make this as good as I wanted. I literally shot it on lunch break from a day job at an PR firm. However, I think the results are clear and I wanted to share the video and a link to my blog with you guys in hopes that others can learn or give me some good feedback on questions I raise. I'm rusty on the whole shooting thing because I've devoted the last 3 years to teaching and commercial work/writing. It's good to get back into it, and necessary because I have a script I want to shoot next month.
I know some won't be interested in the blog link above, like I'm plugging myself, but there is a lot of insight into the footage, what I was trying to do, and a big piece on lenses and the way they work (like feel) on different cameras.
