    tommykristensen got a reaction from Tito Ferradans in Van Diemen Isco-Mod V2   
    Last call for the V2 upgrade was sep. 2nd. And still no news, reviews or a single pic to be found - weird... Maybe Van D promised a little to much again on the delivery dates again

    Veydra is launching a new anamorph this sunday. If the build and quality matches the mini primes - we may well be in for a huge treat.

    tommykristensen got a reaction from roccoforte in Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, anamorphic lens.   
    Well, both are amazing shots. Loved the Salton Sea video - especially the scenes with the old battered tube-tv and the last one - with the Heron?
     
    The isco's are also fine, not as sharp as you mention. The one with the door is really great.

    tommykristensen got a reaction from Julian in For Sale: Iscomorphot 8/1.5x aka "baby iscorama"   
    I'm parting with my "baby iscorama". Not because I don't like it - but I never use it. I got an Iscorama shortly after I bought this one - which put this baby in the corner.
     
    I originally bought it from another user in here. Jorge De Silva - he has used it somewhat more than me, and made these videos with it. (I never got around to use 'em for video)

    Its old. So obviously there is some wear. I looks great, works great, focus is great. There is a few specs of dust, but I haven't noticed them on pictures. Overall in great condition.
     
    With the ridiculously danish import taxes, I ended up paying 700 USD. So I guess that will be the price. Is it fair? - i don't know. It's not the 2000 USD "buy now" like on eBay. I was hoping to sell it without loss. Free shipping in the EU.

    tommykristensen reacted to Rob Bannister in Anamorphic post workflows part 1   
    Hello everyone,
     
    This is one way to learn to deal with Anamorphic footage in post. Here is a detailed tutorial on working with anamorphic footage in post, from dealing with lens distortion and squeeze factor, moving data between applications and rendering with the proper pixel aspect ratios. I will be updating this tutorial with more info as I move through the process and adding more applications as well. Currently I cover Nuke, After Effects, Video Copilot and Maya. The next one will most likely be Houdini but if you have any suggestions, something is missing or if there is a better way to do something please let me know. I really wanted a place to consolidate all of this info and make it available to anyone who needs it, so let me know if you found this useful.
     
    Thanks

    I don't see how i'm missing the point - It sounded like an argument for choosing GH2 over Canon?
     
    "....all these formats work on GH2 but NOT Canon EOS" ... "but you cannot use any of the following on a Canon EF mount as they all have a smaller flange focal distance"
     
    I use a lot of old lenses on my 5DmkIII, so I just wanted to clarify, that lens options isn't a huge problem - if any at all. You can use most of the same lenses. I don't spend oceans of time adapting or working out quirky solutions - they work without much hassle. So Luke shouldn't bother spending brain capacity on that part of his problem.
     
    The GH2 is without a doubt a beast - outguns any other cam when it comes to detail. But I still think there is something aesthetically nice about the fullframes - and with the Magic Lantern installed - there is a lot of nice features as well.
     
    My advice is to check every option out, eyes and hands on - I checked out the GH2, and liked it - a lot - but ended up with a 5DmkIII in the end. Choice solely based on looks.

    "but you cannot use any of the following on a Canon EF mount as they all have a smaller flange focal distance
    Minolta Bayonet , Fujinon B4 ENG , Konica Bayonet , Fujica X Bayonet , C mount , pentax 110 , Pentacon Bayonet."
     
    Thats not completly right. You can use several of them, some with simple adapters without glass - but you risk losing "infinity" - but it if you do not need "infinity" - its not a problem. Major problem for Iscorama users of course, but i'm also shooting other things than anamorphic, and there I seldom need to have "infinity". If you're shooting interviews, macro, pack shots, close focus scenes whatever - you wouldn't need it - and if you wan't a cheaper f/1.2 lens or a special look - it works.
     
    "So I dont use FD lenses on my EF cameras for that reason it is introducing another lens into the equation degrading the image
    But yes you can if you really want to use them on your EF but most people dont bother for this reason"
     
    It wouldn't "degrade" images more than introducing lenses/glass in form of teleconverters, an item most professional photographers have in their camera backs, or the Metabones Speedbooster, which is receiving great reviews.
     
    C-mount to Canon EF (No Glass inside, Limited to close focus and macro)
     
    FD to EF mount (Glass for infinity, but it can be removed to be used for close focus and macro)
     
    Konica AR to Canon EF (Glass for infinity, but it can be removed to be used for close focus and macro)
     
    Minolta MD/MC/SR to Canon EF (Glass for infinity, but it can be removed to be used for close focus and macro)
     
    Pentacon to Canon EF (No glass inside)
     
    Pentax K to Canon EF (No glass inside - won't work on 1Ds and fullframes unless you remove or cut mirror)
     
    Pentax 110 to Canon EF (Homemade adapter, but it shows that it could be done)
     
    X Fujinon to Canon EF (Homemade adapter, but it shows that it could be done)
