  1. For sale: Toshiba 32GB 1000x CF Card (150/120MB/s read/write) - €45,- Rarely used. Good for Magic Lantern Raw. Hoya Vario ND 3-400 77mm - €100,- Like new in box. Canon EOS 50D + 64GB KomputerBay 1000x CF-card + 3 batteries + 2 chargers - €250 Want to try out raw video? This is by far the cheapest way. When Magic Lantern came out with their raw hack, I was one of the first to grab a Canon EOS 50D and started experiment with it. You can read more about it in Andrews blog. Since then I haven't used it much, but it was a lot of fun experimenting with it and it's still amazing you can shoot raw video with a camera from 2008, that doesn't even have a movie mode. Check a sample video I made here. Comes in box, includes 1 original battery, 2 Phottix 1600mAh Titan BP511a batteries and two chargers. I'm adding a 64GB 1000x CF card so you're good to go. Panasonic GH2 + vintage lens kit - €250 Another piece of history I bought this camera because of EOSHD. Amazing value, back when I bought it in 2012, but even now it's still going strong. Signs of use, but works like a charm. Has been sitting on a shelf since around 2013... Hacked with Moon Trial 5 for high bitrates. I'll add some vintage lenses + adapter, so this is a fun kit for anyone who wants to start filming on a low budget. Want to see what the GH2 is capable of? Watch Musgo here! The kit includes: GH2 body (silver), box, 2 original batteries, charger, Minolta MD adapter, Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7, Tokina SD 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro, Sigma 80-200mm 3.5-4 High Speed Zoom. Both Tokina and Sigma have a minolta mount, you can use them on the supplied adapter. View more pictures of the set here
  2. I'm holding on to it for now... I should start using my gear again sometime I do have some diopters I'm willing to part with. Like the Tamron +0.5 diopter (72mm close up adapter lens for 28-200mm) It's not an achromat, but it's cheap and works quite ok. You can find plenty of info on the anamorphic forum here. I do have some smaller achromats. Not sure if useful but if anyone is interested, send me a message: Minolta Close-Up Lens No. 0. 55mm - diopter +1 Leitz Elpro VIIb 54mm (weird size) - diopter +0.75 (?) Minolta Close-Up Lens for Autopak-8 67mm - diopter +2.5, or +3 according to http://www.ki.tng.de/~sgude/achromats.html?
  3. I've actually never used it. Collecting dust in my closet with my collection of anamorphots. Shame on me... I know It's mounted onto my Kowa B&H though. Perfect fit with the 72mm size. What I've seen/heard it's really good, like the Tokina. The Tokina is expensive because most people who have it know what it is. With the Minolta that's not the case so you can get it cheaper if you're lucky. But actually it kind of is the same product, both diopters were originally design to use with big telezooms.
  4. I didn't receive the money 28 days after my claim. I have received it now. I cc'd Panasonic UK Customer service, they said they'd forwarded it to a manager at the catchback company. 15 minutes later there was 280 EUR on my PayPal account
  5. Anyone got their cashback from Panasonic? I did not and no reaction on my question about it either. Just wondering how things went for you guys.
  6. I know it's not available for that price. My point is, there is no benefit whatsoever of the expensive, ancient, ddr2 ecc memory in the MacPro 3.1. You make it sound like it's such a great deal because of it has expensive memory. It's still slow memory... And by the way, Mac Pro's work fine with non-ecc memory. So for a Mac Pro 4.1 you can just check Amazon for kits of 4x DDR3 8GB memory, there's plenty even for less than $150.
  7. Are you kidding? That's DDR2 ram... ancient stuff. 32GB new DDR3 ram is like €150... True, the Mac Pro uses expensive ECC memory, but that has no advantage in speed whatsoever and is kind of pointless for video editing. @sqm What's in your hackingtosh exactly? i5 or i7? either way, it's probably like 4 generations newer than the Xeon E5462 in the Mac Pro 3.1. That makes quite a difference in new instructions, optimisations, etc. Even with it 8 cores I doubt it's going to be an upgrade over your current system. Buying an 8 year old computer... even if it was very powerful by then, is not a smart move imo. Maybe if your current setup was really slower, but it's not. I can see your point of wanting to have a native mac though. You could consider changing systems because of that and the price of €400 seems ok. But it's still an old system... Wouldn't invest in it.
  8. Received my G7 body from Amazon UK. Lovely little camera Looks like they're sold out by now.. price is up and only one available.
  9. Love it Tito! Always been curious to see some extreme aperture anamorphic shots with the Kowa B&H. I expected it'd work well and it sure does. Looks perfect.
  10. My bad, DMC-G7EB-K seems to be the code for body only.
  11. Great deal! Seems like the G7 body is not eligible for the Cashback though, has to be one of the kits: DMC-G7HEB-KCashback£200.00€280.00DMC-G7WEB-SCashback£200.00€280.00DMC-G7KEB-KCashback£200.00€280.00DMC-G7KEB-SCashback£200.00€280.00DMC-G7EB-KCashback£200.00€280.00
  12. Can't edit my post any more but I've sold some stuff... Items below are still for sale. Mosaic Engineering VAF-5D2b for Canon 5D Mark IIPanasonic GH2 body (silver) 2 original batteriesCanon EOS 50D + 3 batteries (1 original) + 2 chargersCanon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM64GB CF - Komputerbay 1000x UDMA732GB CF - Toshiba 1000x UDMA7 (150MB/s read, 120MB/s write)I'm sure there must be someone here who can put that VAF-5D2b to good use. Anyone shooting ML Raw with the 5D Mark II should be interested... Also: I might be interested in a Panasonic G7 (body) if anyone wants to part with it for a good price.
  13. I'm surprised that Z cam is out already. That was on kickstarter like 4 months ago?
  14. Good journalism would be you being able to get the news confirmed officially. Which is probably not very realistic right now though, so I'd settle with any official statement on the matter. Anyway, the article in its current form is fine. Using arguments and sources, forming an opinion. A lot better than the bold claim it was at first.
  15. Yes, I want facts. Of course. Good that you included them now in your update on the blog. It's not about arguing if the rumors are true or not. I just strongly disagreed with your conclusion (the title of the article, which is much better in its current form) based on the response Oliver got. It simply is _not_ an official statement from Samsung. It might be a statement from a certain guy with a certain position at a certain division, but all those aspects are unknown. Apparently Oliver knows them and it would be good for the value of article to include this information. I'm kind of flabbergasted that Dpreview just copies your blog, without taking the 5 minutes needed to find the original source of the quote (which is right here in the topic). The whole thing kind of took a 180 degree when Oliver got that second response. Anyway, no hard feelings. I value this blog, and above all it's a blog so write whatever you want (that's why I value it...). I do think you could do better journalism sometimes and make articles like this much more valuable with some more fact checking and verification (or at least arguments - like you added now). Even a 'Samsung declined to respond on the matter' kind of reply would be valuable.
  16. Maybe start checking some facts instead of taking every word some rep - who's name and function is uknown - says for 'official Samsung statement'
  17. Totally loses all credibility by using a 1/4" 320x240 pixel sensor from a barbie camera, and saying that's a 'conventional' camera.
  18. It's hard to tell from the pictures. Either the seller can't take proper pictures or he's trying to hide how bad it is. He's pretty honest about it in the description though, selling it as 'broken / use for parts'... I'm curious if it still works - if all the elements are moving it might still give an ok picture. Getting it repaired sounds not very likely or will cost a fortune. But you can minimize your loss by selling it to rich for $400...
  19. I'm letting go a lot of stuff. Let me know if you're interested, make me an offer. I'm willing to part with everything for a fair price. I'll make detailed pictures of all the products for sale on request. Can combine multiple products. Also have plenty of vintage lenses / adapters I'm willing to sell or combine with the cameras.

  20. @Andrew Reid Huh? Aren't you supposed to be selling cameras instead of buying?
  21. Good decision Andrew. Looking forward to new blogs about great cheap gear.
  22. @Blake.H Hey, I wanted to post that! I love movies with strong anamorphic bokeh. So Killing them Softly blew me away. It was shot at T2 T2.5, even during the day! Check out this article if you liked it: http://www.theasc.com/ac_magazine/October2012/KillingThemSoftly/page1.php
  23. Not sure if we're looking at the same video / stream quality. Watching on a 1080p screen, the text is not sharp at all, indicating it's a lower resolution upsized. Here's a screengrab, this is as good as it gets. No detail at all (because of crappy uploaded file, I'm sure). 1080p at 5 tot 10 mbps can you perfecly sharp.
