    • Film schools are a bit of an exception to the norm¬†though. In commercial video, young talent coming in from commercial photography are used to AF, happy with AF and want it on their video cameras. It's the number one area for Nikon to improve in terms of video, as image quality is¬†nailed down just right now. It's the best full frame 4K image, bar none.
    • Hey Guys,¬†
      this is my first post after some private messages and tons of reading. So even though I know most of your faces, I haven't written something myself. I am a german film student trying to get more professionell with my video work (on a budget). I have bought the gx80 used. 

      Now I am looking for a cheap way to finish up my gear, probably with vintage lenses, so that I can concentrate on storytelling again. Because I am taking more and more time than I would have liked to take in the beginning and am starting to turn in circles, I now want to ask for your help with a decision about a lense set. 

      Here is what my goal is.
      -A full set of conforming glass, character and vintage is appreciated and meets my budget
      -Infinity focus, using only one lens turbo adapter for all the lenses
      -Using little budget. 
      -I always shoot manual, both video and photos (only events, no fast movements)

      I just bought a minolta 28mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.4 and got them cheap, I really like the 50mm, the 28mm has a bit of fungus. 
      Also I have the sigma 18-35 1.8 (my most expensive peace of gear ever) and recently I found an old sigma af macro 50mm 2.8 in my moms old photo box.

      Now what should I do for a full set of lenses? 
      Minolta:
      Should I buy one minolta tele and use a full set of minoltas with character? I am looking at the minolta 35-70 3.5 but don't know if that is really good as a main lense, or if I should use a tokina atx pro 28-70 2.6-2.8?
      Sigma:
      Should I try to get another tele vintage sigma lense and built a full sigma set with a more modern look? Is it possible to use the analoge sigma af macro 50mm 2.8
      with an ef to m43 speedbooster, or does it not work because it is analoge?
      Nikkor:
      Using nikkor afs glass was recommended to me, but I think I only want to go there when my freelance work can actually cover the coast of a bourne lense.


      Looking forward to all of your feedback. If this belongs in another thread, I am happy to move it there.

      Where did you find these pics? Reverse image searched turned up nothing
    • I haven't found that to be the case. From what I've seen, most film schools (at least any with a technical focus) are still requiring at least one class shooting 16mm. AFI requires lots of shooting on film. Whereas most schools with a focus on directing assume you'll be hiring your own experienced DP from a program like AFI. The D850 looks great, though.
    • The Sony mirrorless cams don't do 240/480fps though!
