  1.  Motion Photography is also used for stills .....a Google image search will list samples.   How 'bout: Cineographer?  Cineography   Cine: Adjective = Cinematographic  
  2. You''ll need to use step rings to attach the Redstan clamp to the filter thread of your lens. Which lens or lenses were you intending to use?
  3. He's everywhere! I'm feeling more than a little scared at the moment.....he could appear without a moments notice....no wonder New Yorkers never sleep :o ................................................................................

  4. Good grief! That clip is [i]hilariously[/i] bad in every way :o :lol:
  5. [quote]What benefits would I get from replacing my Vamp Clamp with a Red Stan?[/quote]The Redstan clamp is engineered, unlike the Vamp Clamp which appears to be just [i]thrown[/i] together.....
  6. Good outcome. I enjoyed watching the clip. It had a nice 'flow' to it with a good range of cinematic scenes and well edited. The anomalies you mentioned were evident. Which 'taking lens' was used between 1:29 to 1:47?
  7. Andrew, Do you have any anamorphic adventures to report/share when using such optics with the Black Magic Cinema Camera?
  8. [quote]They seem to love it. Not hard to see why! [/quote] I hope Apple don't have any aspirations of buying BMD - that would be a disaster for end-users, both on the hardware and software front...you'd probably need to connect to iTunes before pressing the record button. Don't underestimate a custom built Windows PC. I took some joy throwing my last remaining Mac into the trash the other day. It looked good, but that was about the only postive thing I could say about it when comparing its performance to even an average Windows PC, let alone the inferior quality of all th
  9. I recognise that second clip as being from The Mission; a profound film; so too Apocalypse Now. There is a common 'thread' running through the seam of both films. One aspect of the Shigascope x1.5 clip uploaded by [i]brucker [/i]is the [u]absence[/u] of lens element flare/vignette in the corners of frame, especially when the train headlights are pointing directly at the lens at 0:37. There must be a better term for what I am intending to describe. The 'flare' I'm referring to reveals the oval outline of the anamorphic lens elements. [i]bucker [/i]do you have any dayl
  10. [quote name='QuickHitRecord' timestamp='1351386023' post='20458'] Get a Redstan anamorphic clamp, available here: [url="http://www.redstan.com"]http://www.redstan.com[/url] or on eBay. I believe that the rear thread of these clamps is 52mm. They will allow you to mount your anamorphic lens securely onto your taking lens and orient it appropriately. [/quote] The more recent versions of the Redstan clamps for the Kowa B&H and Kowa Prominar 16-H (8Z) terminate in 62mm threads and have a separate internal retaining ring The Kowa Prominar 16H (8Z) clamps ar
  11. This exhibition could be defined as 'advertising'. It seems to me that was their intention and motive.
  12. Glad it found a good home. Keep us updated.
  13. The 8/2x looks similar to the Isco Animex S8/2x (brief slideshow below): [media]http://www.flickr.com/photos/44569540@N05/sets/72157630982101542/[/media]
  14. [quote] I must say, I looked for the dividing point between the two projector images that make up a single large image, and it is difficult to find and therefore not distracting at all. [/quote] No parallax issues? Are anamorphic lenses telecentric or can they be persuaded to be with an appropriate attachment?
  15. [quote name='Bioskop.Inc' timestamp='1350814936' post='20068'] The Sigma is a little gem as well & only £10-15 on ebay (gold box). [/quote] I've just picked up one of those Sigma diopters....least I think I have (waiting for it to arrive), there does not appear to be any specs on the box or the outer ring to indicate 1.6x. There is also a double element variant which may or may not resemble the Canon 500D +2.0 close-up.
  16. [quote name='Bioskop.Inc' timestamp='1350753031' post='20047'] Here's a quick test that gives you an idea of the Angenieux +0.3 - on its own & in competition/combination with the Tokina +0.4 Achromat. [url="https://vimeo.com/51816478"]https://vimeo.com/51816478[/url] [/quote] Such demonstrations are most helpful; thanks for sharing. What surprises me most is the difference in FOV when comparing the 0.3 with the 0.4
  17. Thanks for the information and link; gives one ideas. NYC is a bit far from my location but I can appreciate what has been accomplished when looking through the exhibition images on the website linked in your post and reading the storyline behind the 13:00 min presentation.

  20. [quote name='galenb' timestamp='1348282104' post='18866'] You mean the shimmer effect? That's actually an optical effect cause by looking through heat rising from the ground. It doesn't show up in the 5D footage because the lens doesn't get close enough. [/quote] Thanks for the clarification, I thought that might be the explanation.
  21. WOW! Magic indeed. Whats happenning with the BMC footage @ 08:21 to 08:33
  22. [quote name='MattH' timestamp='1348142087' post='18678'] or put up with the rainbow moiré of the BMC because they skipped putting in an optical low pass filter in this version...... [/quote] Say what??? Could you provide some specific off-topic references?
  23. [quote name='tony wilson' timestamp='1348107094' post='18656'] my other project without the heat or bullcrap of slr magics lens is my prototype small likle anamorphic. very quick bursts the lens is back in pieces as it is still got someway to go. optics still a little soft but i have now surpassed optex and century in quality and flexibility. not as wide as those bits of glass but maybe a better look. the footage is a bit wonky as i held the anamorphic in front of a lovely old cooke lens from charlie chaplin times and so old had no filter thread [media]http
  24. The Making of 'Deep Green'....additional footage starts at 03:00 The soundtrack and behind the scenes glimpses are of interest. (the YouTube footage is heavily compressed) [url="http://youtu.be/GCNgphOaWRg?hd=1"]http://youtu.be/GCNgphOaWRg?hd=1[/url]
