A guy named Paulo emailed me about this a few days ago, but unfortunately I’ve been busy! Apparently a Hong Kong guy has dismantled his 5D Mark II, removed the mirrorbox and put a PL mount on the camera for Arri primes.
I like this clip shot in London for a number of reasons. It isn’t perfect by any means, but first of all it’s a great scene (from a great movie), second of all the acting is pretty convincing and thirdly the anamorphic lens flare is from fishing wire! That’s innovation on a budget. Sound comes from a Zoom H4N, also good – considering this little gadget costs just $400 / £250. Soon enough even Homeless Guy will be making HDSLR movies!
