  1. [quote name='EOSHD' timestamp='1346693989' post='17229'] Because 1080p doesn't upscale to nearly 4K anamorphic as well as 2.5K does, that's why! You could do that but why bother? 1920x720 shows what most people who will shoot ProRes will do - a crop for a wider aspect ratio on Vimeo, and no anamorphic lens. [/quote] Won't you have to compress your Raw footage anyway back down to 1080p to be viewed on vimeo and other limited net streaming, for those who do not have 2k monitors ... etc. I know and heard that technology is getting ready for 2k and 4k projectors but that would be great for film festivals and showings but for most people who view online, etc.. How versatile and open are you able to show and distribute and others to view your 2.5k projects vs. 1080p projects..?
  2. I'm in Southern Maryland looking for some GH2 shooters, too bad were far away...
  3. What are you trying to do??? if your just trying a nice hack for better mbits.. use the regular eoshd hack and leave settings alone or just change numbers for greater mbits.
  4. [quote name='Markus' timestamp='1345626255' post='16193'] Insane how fast cameras are becoming. I would be a bit worried about wear of the physical shutter, a camera like the 1DX is designed for what, say 300.000 exposures or something? If you record 6 hours of video like this that's your 300.000 exposures done. Shutter can be replaced by Canon though so I guess it's not a biggie. [/quote] wow, that is something to think about!! I doubt the owner has taken that into thought
  5. Ok, Is the Anamorphic lenses worth getting over shooting with regular primes and cropping the image.. I've read reviews and forums, and seen Andrew Reid's videos with them, but they cost just as much as a good prime lens, and its additional attaches to your prime on a rig, etc... is it worth it in the end, money wise, and headache wise, when you can shoot with only your prime and crop for the extra wide aspect ratio...
  6. Kudos mate! I upgraded from the Olympus E-420 10mp beginner DSLR.. I was about to upgrade to OMD E-M5!!! I pre-ordered and everything!!! I saw that camera as dominating in photography, olympus being an underdog in photography.. It had 5 axis IBS (which I miss but for photography only), built in HDR (which I wished GH2 had but..), Olympus signature art filters (GH2 are filters are not as good, but looking better with LX7), and FULL HD video.. THIS was Olympus FRANKENSTEIN!!! The GH2 turned my head a FULL 180, when I saw it's awards and credits from its image and recording capabilities, it had 24fps, (OMD don't), Cinema mode (OMD don't), so much more for a filmmaker.. but Olympus m4/3 lenses are superb quality.. I wanted 12mm F2 but for $800, I saw the CINE lens by NOKTOR 12mm T1.6 for $550 does the Olympus 12mm AF and AE work with the GH2??? if so, that will persuade me to lean more towards their lens.
  7. [quote name='nahua' timestamp='1345287337' post='15958'] Sorry I don't have any videos of me using it, I'm usually the one taking videos. It's really great for weddings. I'd like to rent it too! LOL I have a SmallHD DP4, so I could get the eyecup option, but I usually use the fabric hood (sorry not shown). In any case it works really well even though it cost me an arm and a leg!! [/quote] ok, which Follow focus is that? is it Edelkrone? and I notice your Matte Box isn't rigged to the 15mm rods, does your mattebox accept rods? or is GH2 sitting too high? Maybe Christmas time, Edelkrone has a big sale going!
  8. Yeah, great tutorial, thanks for sharing... however, i'm just a one man team, a zoom lens does make sense more so than all primes, but 45-200 panasonic lens, which should get more options and field of view than 70-200 to cover more action. 2-3 GH2 would be a blessing, but I just have to wait until I get more money to spend, but I think planing ahead before the wedding, attending rehearsal and finding the pauses within the ceremonies... one may be capable of capturing atleast have of those angles with one camera..
  9. ok, whats BMD? did you see that Rokinon is making a CINE version of their lens, starting with the 24 and 35, so the aperture ring will be smooth instead of clicks, and will have teeth for follow focus, and markings on lens.. Interested in those as well for my prime list.
  10. AGREED, wow, you own GH2 and 5D mk3.. Congrats! I will use this as all around but primarily features, cinematography and weddings, Which one do you choose as your photography camera? I have a nice little list of primes i have yet to buy.. the NOKTOR 12mm T1.6 is one of them..
  11. Thanks for the pass on! now I have so many options!!! I'm so glad the prices on the Matte boxes have REALLY gone down.. D/Focus, and other ebay stores have them for less than $200! Come my next check I have free to spend, I will be getting Matte Box, Follow focus base plate with rails, then next time will be an actual Rig!
  12. could have been hate from other cinematographers with other company's like sony, panasonic, etc. I have GH2 love it.. but I do know and show respect to the big dog 5D mk2 and mk3! I just love Panasonic and Canon too.. I wonder how NIKON's new D8000 with Full Frame and 36mp will do against the 5D mk3??
  13. yep, I already checked out the flicks on flickr.. so you do more photography than cine? what camera do you use?
  14. [quote name='nahua' timestamp='1345110906' post='15797'] Sorry it took so long for me to upload this. Edelkrone Modula 5 w/ Focus One follow focus. SmallHD DP4, Zoom H4n w/ Azden shorty shotgun mic (going for a Rode NTG2 soon) and generic LED light up top.

I need a setup just like this for Weddings!!! and for filmmaking too. Is it up for Rent! Lol So which EVF did you go with? you got any videos of it in motion? if not, can you do some!
