  1. Good link..thanks for uploading.... I'm going with the BMC and don't expect to look back on the decision, especially now after reading the initial reports from Photokina. Regarding SSD, you need to factor in the the cost of CF, SD cards and subtract that from the SSD costs. I'm looking at a Lexar 32GB UDMA 400X CF 60MBs (AUD$172.00) and comparing that to a Kingston V+200 240GB SSD 535MBs currently listed 'new' at AUD $185.00. I'd rather buy the SSD drives and feed them to the BMC. I'm not experiencing any system problems playing DNG files in realt
  2. I saw this blog and thought it would be a useful feature. [url="http://ryancglover.blogspot.com.au/"]http://ryancglover.blogspot.com.au/[/url] [url="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8430/7797609660_17406346e3_c.jpg"][img]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8430/7797609660_17406346e3_c.jpg[/img][/url]

  4. The are a number of mini reviews and video reports beginning to appear on the Net. Here are a couple I came across today: Shooting wide on the Cinema Camera: [url="http://www.onerivermedia.com/blog/?p=677"]http://www.oneriverm...com/blog/?p=677[/url] Shooting with the Black magic Cinema Camera: [url="http://www.moviemachine.tv/video/shooting-with-the-blackmagic-cinema-camera/48431007/"]http://www.moviemach...amera/48431007/[/url] [quote] [url="http://nofilmschool.com/tag/johnbrawley/"]John Brawley[/url] recently gave a presentation at Sydney Institute Film Academy and went o
  5. [quote] You can already more or less manipulate the DP4 and DP6 to display your 3.55:1 image (as well as the other standard crop ratios). [/quote] Could someone offer advice regarding this 'tweak' for the DP6. I've just received a smallHD DP6. I assume anamorphic settings are made via the 'Custom Scale' feature?
  6. Bolex Anamorphot 8/19/1.5x anamorphic lens on eBay. These lenses are exceptional. I'm not the seller, but he has a sample video linked in the listing. *Note: Mute the narration :ph34r: (for the first pass) [media]http://vimeo.com/42252615[/media] [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/200811757811"]http://www.ebay.com/itm/200811757811[/url]
  7. Good approach. The 3M Dual Lock is exceptionally strong, costs more than Velcro but is ten times as strong (that's being conservative).
  8. New Fresh DNG's are up. Tokina 11-16 field of view samples. [url="http://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=391"]http://forum.blackma...c.php?f=2&t=391[/url]
  9. [quote] A little grainy, but it's a nice grain. [/quote] True. I was intending to buy a GH2 and an Atomos Ninja2; but I need to rethink that plan.... [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/19833/50376b122349a_BMC_1.jpg[/img]
  10. In Premiere CS6, what are the advantages of using the aforementioned techniques as opposed to importing anamorphic footage into the clip 'bin' > right-clicking the clip > Modify > Interpret Footage > Selecting 'Conform to' and choosing an appropriate anamorphic format?
  11. Tony, The first emebedded video has been taken offline :mellow: .....after watching the second video I went looking for more. I started in complete ignorance and eventually found myself in awe of Tony Scott.
  12. "Isco 54 attached to the Canon 50mm F1.4" (on a 7D possibly @ f/2.8) "Filmed at 1080 30p and slowed down to 24 in post. Grading was done in Photoshop CS4." Would the 'shot at 30p and slowed to 24p have much impact on the overall result? How would Photoshop be used as far as ''grading' is concerned? [i]still learning....appreciate the discussion, thanks for uploading the link to the clip.[/i]
  13. Here is another good comparison of two baby anamorphots. https://vimeo.com/41352674
  14. No footage as yet. Have only recenly received my clamps for the Animex. I could not find much information on the net, so placed some images of the lens on Flickr for reference yesterday. I'll start a new thread when I've taken some video. The Animex is a projection optic focus fixed around 8-14ft purely for 8mm and 16mm film projection (thanks Alan). Using a 0.4 diopter appears to provide the best result when using this lens. I've also been advised additional diopters would work well with the Animex for close-up work. The lens is mentioned briefly in this post by Martin Baumg
  15. Two particular lenses I own are not designated 1.75x, but when working with still images in Photoshop, a percentage stretch of 175% horizontal renders a circle round, so I'm assuming the lenses are 1.75x? One of the lenses is an ISCO Animex, the other is discussed in the following thread (link below): [url="http://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/972-isco-anamorphic-projection-lenses/"]http://www.eoshd.com...jection-lenses/[/url] My lens is the same as [i]dahlfors; [/i]but I'm using Redstan.com clamps. I placed some initial information regarding the ISCO Animex on Flickr: [url="ht
  16. Need some help regarding the correct or appropriate proceedure for importing and designating aspect ratio of ananmorphic footage in PP CS6 and/or Avid MC6. I have various anamorphic attachments: 1.5x, 1.75x, 2x. I am using a Canon DSLR. PAL. Is there a thread somewhere which discusses this matter? Thanks for your help...........and patience :ph34r:
  17. [quote name='KarimNassar' timestamp='1344500009' post='15175'] looking forward to video footage as well [/quote] Video footage will follow... I've been sourcing 'glass' but have not taken any video to date.
  18. You might find something in this clip collection: [url="http://vimeo.com/groups/anamorphic"]vimeo.com/groups/anamorphic[/url]
  19. Interesting, thanks for sharing. Yep, that is the same lens I have. I've merely been opening my test images in Photoshop: Image>Image Size, unchecking the 'constrain proportions' checkbox and changing the horizontal width from pixels to percent and selecting 200%. The ISCO images have more vertical height than those delivered by the Kowa 16-H when following the above proceedure. I'm unsure if this is the correct method...I'm new to anamorphics. What lens is the ISCO attached to in your D200 setup, a 55/2.5 Micro Nikkor ? I enjoyed looking through your samples
  20. I read an article on 444-films.com [url="http://444-films.com/the-last-iscorama-anamorphic/"]http://444-films.com...ama-anamorphic/[/url] and decided to buy such a lens; found a red ISCO 65mm 2X locally. Basically just unscrew the rear lens and attach the anamorphic adapter to a DSLR/lens setup. If you are curious, here is an image (link below) taken with a Canon 7D, a Canon EF-S 60mm and the ISCO handheld at the front of the assembly. I have not tested any of its other qualities or shortcomings but this image may serve as a basic reference for anyone else considering such a lens. This
  21. I received my first anamorphic lens/adapter; it's a Kowa Prominar 16-H. I attached it to a Canon EF-S 60mm and Canon 7D. Here is a still image (link below) crunched into a jpeg. This was taken handheld. I was positioned 20m from the postman. I used the AF on the EF-S 60mm and focused on the flag at the top of the hill. The Kowa 16-H was set at infinity. I'm new to anamorphics so comments/suggestions/explanations are welcome. I cannot say for certain if the Kowa was perfectly aligned; there are some areas of the image which indicate possibly not.

  22. Would a 1.4X teleconverter have any unpredictable outcome on sensor if incorporated into a 2X anamorphic/lens assembly? I'm not experienced in ray tracing but mathematics should provide a sufficient answer. I'm yet to receive my first anamorphic lens, so forgive my ignorance as I ponder various 'what if' scenarios.
  23. OK will do. I noticed a Kowa Prominar Anamorphic 16-D and 16-S on my travels. The 16-S (it's in the US) may be within the price range indicated by MirrorKisser, but as I know next to nothing about anamorphic lenses someone with more experience would need to confirm if it is appropriate. Import duties and VAT could possibly make the item less attractive if MirrorKisser is based in Europe. MirrorKisser, apologies for hijacking your thread. I hope you find what you are looking for in regard to an anamorphic lens. Craig
  24. Thanks for the information. I managed to purchase a Kowa Prominar Anamorphic 8-Z and I'm intending to outfit it with adapters/clamp by Redstan. This should be a good starting point for me. It's my first anamorphic lens. Craig
