  1. http://vimeo.com/74613572   My serene short macro film.   Mostly shot on Pentax-A 100mm f4 macro, with very close up shots using a reversed Sigma 24mm f2.8 super wide II.   I used my k-5 for tests and stills, but used a Canon 600d with Technicolor cinestyle installed for the actual shoot, as the dynamic range is greater, and it has manual controls. The lenses are attached using a canon-pentax adapter, which can be bought from Ebay for £10/$15.   To get closer I used a set of 50mm extension tubes, and sometimes used the Canon 600D’s 3x digital zoom (which is still
  2. Very true on the depth of field - that was useful. Also, with reversed lenses the focus isn't flat across the frame so the edges have poor image quality. With 3x full HD zoom you're getting the centre of that frame with much better corner sharpness, which is very useful - although the chromatic aberrations are multiplied too, which in some shots is pretty noticeable.
  3. This is my short film 'Light' I've been making over the last month using a Canon 600d with Pentax lenses.   http://vimeo.com/69428988   It's a short (90 second) simple story about a lighthouse getting through the night, and features lots of experiments in cinematography - all done on my kitchen table with reversed and macro lenses and a lot of ice!   We used a Canon 600D (with Pentax adapter for my lenses) for the film itself as the manual control on this camera, the full HD digital zoom ability and swivel screen made it very useful for those tiny close ups! The film is al

I used a Pentax-M 50mm 1.4, Pentax-M 75-150 f4 and Pentax-A 100mm macro on a Canon 7D with a $10 adapter from eBay. For the ship effect at the start, the ship was a painted model about 2cm / 3/4 inch long shot on the macro lens and green screened in front of the CG planet (made from a spherised flat map) in front of cg stars and flare- we were quite pleased with ourselves!
