  1. I received this in a newsletter less than 24hrs ago:       More information here    
  2. Timelapse......hmmm.    I like the surreal aspect where the background is constant but there appears to be a tiny universe of activity taking place inside the glass.   If the surface of the liquid were used as a type of projection screen, a distinct, but subtle, reflection.....like clouds moving or the motion reflected from an LCD might make it even more interesting.
  3. The 50D uses CF cards: http://***URL removed***/news/2008/8/26/canoneos50d  (scroll down to 'Storage' specifications)
  4. Julian,   Excellent footage, keep it rolling!   The red dress on the beach...staged or serendipity? Brilliant!
  5.  Good detail in the foreground reflections.    Is that a person with a red pullover in the foreground (near the three puddles)?   The car picking up the pedestrian doesn't have its headlights on (even after emerging from under the trainline)....hmmm...mysterious. The driver does, however, get full marks for their use of the indicator.   I detect some dropped frames which may be a result of the streaming and full screen playback.     Now I'm even more curious. Were they close-ups, macro or was the light just not right?    Your dog looks like a miniature lion.
  6. A quick peek. (view fullscreen)   http://johnbrawley.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/footage-in-your-pocket/   .............................................   Just noticed the 'heads up' was also posted here: http://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/2591-blackmagic-pocket-cc-footage-quickdirty-by-brawley/
  7. I'm still in the process of deciding which Cosina Voigtlander to buy, 17 or 25mm for use on the BMD Pocket Camera. I'd like to go with the 17mm; but in addition to that I also require a lens to be used combination with a Bolex 8/19/1.5x anamorphic. Would the 25mm fit the latter scenario?   A present, I do not own any MFT lenses and would like to start my collection with something rather special.
  8. Nicely done and congrats!    When cutting between a few of the shots where the 'talent' were positioned in front of the same background there was a visible 'jolt' (background shift); this may have been intentional; however, if you were to place a marker (usually a cross of tape) to indicate where you want the talent to stand, such 'jolts' could be avoided. The use of this technique is also applicable when dealing with moving subjects and predetermined focus pull.
  9. I hope you left the seller good feedback? It is a superb lens, especially with the inclusion of the Redstan components. 
  10. Good information.   I'm intending to use a similar configuration.
  11. I have recently streamlined my anamorphic lens collection but intend to keep a Bolex-Anamorphot 8/19/1.5x.    I currently have a Tokina 0.4 diopter and would like to know if this would have applicable advantages when used with the Bolex-Anamorphot?   The Tokina 0.4 is a gorgeous piece of glass and I am reluctant to part with it.   I do intend to explore the matter further myself but was after some opinions in the meantime.....
  12. Shallow focus does have its own character: http://youtu.be/h8C9E5yviZQ
  13. I was pleasantly surprised to find this documentary broadcast on SBS Television Australia.....at first I did not know anything about the production.....and then I found myself immersed in the content and Mark Cousins' presentation.......it runs for 15 hours :)   In the unlikely event you've not heard about this extraordinary documentary here is a link to the trailer.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAQNc6aQtO0
  14.  If you perform a Google search for "gh2 time lapse" you will find many interesting links to follow.
  15. I've just finished watching a documentary titled 'Side by Side' on ABC TV Australia and can highly recommend it for general viewing. There is much the new and current generation can learn from the way aspects of film making were accomplished in times past and up to the present date..... It contains fascinating insights and leaves one with a sense of responsibility as we move further along the timeline and into the future.   Some initial information at link below: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2014338/
  16. Thumbs up on the Redstan clamp.   The retaining ring threads onto the Bolex. The thumb screws on the outer ring lock the retaining ring in place and also facilitate precise orientation of the anamorphic.   I've posted these images before........but seems relevant to post them again...
