View or buy the Sony F35 for $12,000 on eBay US (this version is enhanced by Clairmont camera in Hollywood)
A Hollywood workhorse to this day, the Sony CineAlta F35 (also rebadged as Panavision Genesis) is a Super 35mm PL mount digital cinema camera and also an extraordinarily good deal on the used market in 2013.
It has 14 stops of dynamic range and a global shutter. It has taken CMOS sensor in the F65 a full five years to surpass the CCD sensor in the F35 / Genesis, which was used to shoot Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, Superman Returns and Apocalypto.
Due to demand Richard Gale has decided to go ahead and put into production his Compact Cine Systems housing for the Sony NEX 5N.
The housing is designed to be used with the NEX 5N, Sony CLM V55 monitor and lens. It is built to order and made in England.
JIN Finance, the lens adapter machinists in Shanghai, have recently started making DSLR video gear and the big surprise is how well designed it is and the standard of the materials. They are not high end but affordable and accessible for the many, and incredibly good value. Now shooters have been using the rig and follow focus and some have posted reviews.
Anamorphic lenses are like British girls. They won’t just couple up with anybody and need the right partner. They’re very fussy. Some mates are obviously more desirable than others… I am of course talking about prime lenses.
