  1. Most of the people attending this forum do so because they think you observe the development of affordable film or video equipment with reason. 1.I dare the assertion that most of your (and everyone's) favourite films were shot on film stock. 2. Let people decide what emulsion e.g. film or digital they want to choose. They have their reason. A lot of important director don't like the look of digital, even of an Alexa, and the don't like it for workflow reasons. Michael Haneke, for instance. Because even an experienced DP sometimes has to use gear that he wasn't yet able to accustom himself t
  2. Hey guys, I've listed my trusty Tokina achromat +0.4 (yup, the high quality doublet) plus 2 more high quality achromatic diopters (for close-ups) as a 3 piece set on Ebay Germany.

  3. Hey Guys, I finally decided to part with my beloved Baby Hypergonar, which as of now is listed on ebay Germany. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Baby-Hypergonar-Benoist-Berthiot-Cinemascope-Anamorphic-adapter-/111411274822? It is perfect for run and gun anamorphic shooting. Pick up and a chat about the lens and the setup in Berlin would be welcome, too!.. A matching Tokina +0.4 achromat is listed in another auction. Best, Ivor
  4. Great job, Richard. One thing we should keep in mind about ground glass. Photographers focus with ground glass, but they expose onto the negative. In Richards prototype, both focusing and the actual exposure /* / is achieved through ground glass, which might cause some image deterioration - it is probably visible here in the zoomed-in parts as these worm-like structures, when digital noise adds up with it. these are only details, though.. Keep up the great work, Richard, thanks a lot!
  5. [quote name='richg101' timestamp='1343395760' post='14620'] depth of focus is more often than not determined by the lens aperture. Maybe the camera operator decided a deeper depth of focus was what was in order. Too much hyper shallow dof used by film maker wannabes at the moment. lets move away from that. Lets be sophisticated. The constant bashing of the sensor size is funny. very few seem to consider how 'low budget anamorphic friendly' a smaller sensor is? Anamorphic is true filmic. And this camera is likely to be a king at the job. on a side not
  6. It looks very clean, but I am missing something that the name Cinema Camera promises - a cinematic feel. The DOF is too big, even the GH1 and GH2 deliver a better image in terms of a 3D impression. The colors look a bit washed-out, too. The cheap-looking, commercial-like setting might add to that. I can't get rid of the impression that the scenes have been worked on to look as filmic as can be, but this approach somehow isn't successful. I'm looking forward to seeing some less plasticky stuff. From what I've seen till now, the GH series, if handled well, seems to win over th
