    Rudolf reacted to Ian Edward Weir in New video mixing Baby Hypergonar 1.75x, Bolex 16/32 1.5x, Kowa C-35 1.5x & 1.75x Inflight   
    This is a new video where I mix three years of CinemaScope footage from 4 different lens. A surreal nature reel. I hope you enjoy.
    Filmed on a GH4 in 4k. Finished in 2.35:1 CinemaScope
    Anamorphic lens used - Baby Hypergonar 1.75x 8mm, Bolex 16/32 1.5x, Kowa C-35 1.5x and Kowa 1.75x Inflight
    Rectilux Core DNA and 3FFS were used.

    Although I have no idea how the exchange rate was in '79 but that 'Super 8 cinemascope' seemed to be a bargain shop compared to this...

    Rudolf reacted to hyalinejim in How to get the GH4 to look like the ARRI ALEXA?   
    That's quite a provocative question, but I like the way you think! Theoretically, it should be possible to get the GH4 to more closely match the Alexa. This is what I would do.
    1. Shoot in 10bit V-Log to an external recorder
    2. Use LutCalc to generate a VLog to Alexa LUT, to get the Panasonic gamma and gamut into the Alexa range
    3. Shoot a colour chart with a GH4 and Alexa (this is the hard part) with the same exposure. Then bring both into Resolve. Apply the VLog to Alexa LUT to the GH4 shot and adjust the hue and saturation curves so that each square on the aligns with those in the Alexa shot, as seen on the vectorscope.
    Using this kind of method I've got my XC10 to match my 5D3 MLRAW almost perfectly, both shooting a colour calibrated version of C-Log. That's not entirely dissimilar from what you're talking about. OK, they're both Canons but actually the colours coming from each of them were actually quite different.
    Maybe you can find a shot of a chart shot on an Alexa somewhere and exactly replicate the exposure and lighting on your GH4. Good luck and don't forget to post your results when you succeed!

    Selling one of the babies because I have three and don't really need them all.  Two is plenty for my needs and figure there are eager people out there in need of one.

    IBIS is a great improvement. But not usefull for anamorphic shooter.
    @Rudolf you are right about its like a warp stabilizer or youtube "auto stabilize" weird correction.
    If panasonic people can make a mode with only vertical stabilization (like the one in panoramic photo)  would be great for our scopes.

    Grimor, thank you very much for your input! Very good to know. The footage looks like warp stabilizer... I was tempted to buy GH5 because of IBIS. But now I will rethink because I'd use it only for video with anamorphics.
    The GH4 with Lumix 35-100 F2.8 and Isco 36 seem to work well together. So I think the mesmerizer effect is only with IBIS...

    Rudolf reacted to Liam in Please explain: Video vs. "organic"/cinematic look   
    Organic is completely different from cinematic I think. I'm alright with us calling House of Cards cinematic, but organic it is not. "Organic" can be shot poorly, in bad lighting, with insufficient dynamic range and resolution, at f8, on a one inch sensor. the important element would be the camera or grade, maybe a nice grain, proper highlight and shadow rolloff, maybe cadence.. "Cinematic" is the production quality argument, with HDR and high res, good lighting, and apparently doesn't need good colors these days (having just watched Sneaky Pete on Amazon)

    Rudolf got a reaction from hansel in Kodak to bring back EKTACHROME film   
    Millions were making films and taking pictures in the past. Maybe Super 8 was more popular than filming with DSLR? Don't think that billions of batteries and old DSLRs are so environmentfriendly. My cameras and projectors are 40 years old and still work. That's possibly better than buying a new camera every year...
    Back on topic: I think it should be mentioned that we are talking about reversal film here. And that is what makes it so fantastic. As for color stock we only have Vision left and you have to go to Andec-lab in order to let them make a positive. As a filmmaker I always prefer the projection. For me that is the point of film... (I am an enthusiast)

    What's the purpose of telling anything technical related in threads on EOSHD?
    I've myself learnt a great deal on EOSHD, and I've myself picked up quite a lot of news that I probably would not have, had it not been because someone had made a thread about it. So, in the same sense, since I hadn't seen it mentioned on EOSHD before, I figured that the topic would interest others than myself on EOSHD!
    ...and for the film vs digital for myself:
    I started out shooting stills on film and I really like the look of film. The practical parts of shooting with digital is keeping me in the digital-only camp for now though. But maybe I'll some day venture back to film - and then I'm really happy if there are some good films left. Hence it makes me happy to read news like this.

    I am so desperate of fresh color reversal s-8 stock. I have only a dozen left in the fridge... so this is really, really great news. Lets hope Ferrania will pull out a cheaper option (they will for sure not be on the same level quality wise) like it was in the past with Agfa. Matters: I absolutely agree: I have 4 blurays but 100 S-8 feature films. Projecting a movie is so different and has some magic I can't explain. 
    It has c-mount (comes with cheap Ricoh...) but many downsides. I would not buy it. There are enough better and cheaper alternatives.

    Are some of you guys still shooting film? I have recently started to shoot analog stills again after a 10 years abstinence or so and I have to say I am blown away how awesome the stuff is looking adding to this the  darkroom experience. Makes me want to get a 16mm camera or something altough I would feel slightly cuckoo....

    Maybe Kodakchrome could come back but it wont. What was it, 7 baths or something to process and an archival lifespan of just 20 years?
    I dont know many Hipsters that shoot film. Frankly I dont know any, they are a lazy bunch. It smore for people who really enjoy photography and film making as an art imo.
    I believe the reason its coming back is because after all these years digital still can't beat it. Digital is nice but film is nicer. Every time I watch a Blueray of any old movie I blown away of how much digital suck in comparison
    Also digital large format doesnt exist and medium format is still out of reach for most. A film MF is $7.
    (This of course depended on your definition of "better" and what aspect of image quality you rank highest.)
    Ps. Fun fact I heard but dont know if true, Fujifilms Instax division is currently their most profitable business...
    I know Im throwing money at them for my Instax printer

    Now I got it and I agree! If I get you right you are trying to create an amateurish yesterdays lofi look. Which some people could remind on small gauge film. This approach is often used for documentaries or musicclips I think. And in 20 years you are maybe after that feeling of the beginning of the century with its iphone footage in funny aspect ratio...
