  1. At a quick glance I'd say inexperience of the grader[an experienced grader would have solved the problem] - eg depending on what app was used to grade: possibly an incorrect interpretation of camera Metadata on import?
  2. I have a mint 54 [single coated] but I couldn't justify the money on what would be largely an aesthetic based re-housing. I guess if VanD could improve minimum focusing, add gearing & incorporate a support into the housing design people may go for it.
  3. I have the VanD upgrade as well [although mine is pre 36]- 100% agree with elubes post : ) money well spent - no regrets here.
  4. I love the Voigt 25mm f0.95 with my pre 36 Isco [VanDieman upgraded] to my eye it's a stunning match with the 'creamy' Voigt. [Camera being BMCC mft & BMPCC] Be aware - depending on the camera you're using you will get some noticeable barrel reflections shooting into light tho - you'll need to flag it if your not into that look. note:ever since it's release I've used the Voigt 25mm/Isco 54/Pana AF100 combo [as my pre 36 vignetted on the AF100]. Rob is bang on the money re the Nikkor S 55mm f1.2 - also one of my past favourite combo's with the Isco pre 36 [but shooting mainly BMCCmft & BMPCC now has changed my glass combo's]
  5. You have to map paths to media drives in Resolve - now go away!! [& read the manual]
  6. I'll buy now and ask questions later thanks  : )
  7. Sorry,delete Topic already up
  8. Has anyone heard of this development?    http://www.clintonharn.com/?p=445 [attachment=648:Letus 7200.tiff]
  9. I just gotta say for me VanDiemen's service has been faultless, a 6 or 8 month turnaround will breach the temporary import conditions of item entry anyway. The worst part was leaving my 1968 Mint S/Coated Isco-wammy at the local Post Office! to be sent far, far away... Well it arrived at VanD's safely - one step closer - and The Bowmore's Single Malt did taste extra fine this evening as I pondered over the age old adage "No Risk No Rush" To Be Cont. : )
  10. Re Duclos Mods: I asked Matthew about Iscorama re-housing about a year ago, he said he does't have the time or resources available for development... @ Rcorrell - totally agree re the value of the metal rehousing for professional use : )
  11. I came close to attempting this mod myself, but decided to bite the bullet & send my mint single coated Nikon Isco[30mm] from Aust all the way to Vandieman Films in London to get re housed - I bought a new Pelican case for the journey - but still bloody scary! ...now it's there I'm glad I did it - I'll post upon my baby's return : )
  12. Not sure what Camera your using Paulio but I've had great results with Panasonic X 35 -100mm f2.8 [being IF] although 'barrel' flares sometimes show up the narrower diameter. My 'Nikon' Iscorama [30mm rear element] is at Vandeimen Films for rehousing so I can't put up anything at the mo...  
  13. Nice one! & I love the approach - we shot studio floor monitors all the time in the good old analogue days [using feedback/Cam defocus]   for fx patch back into analogue Grass Valley & Ampex vision switchers - before DVE's were even heard of  : )
  14. "Hey Zmu, do you mind if I copy this post of yours into the Diopter thread? Never heard of these Focar before!  :)"   copy away : )   Interestingly 95mm filters crop on the 54 /Voigt 25mm f.95/AF100 - but 112mm filters don't : ) [this combo is by far my fav - amazing 1.5x organic images!]   However the Focars are amazing with the 54/Pana Lumix 35-100 f2.8/GH2 or AF100    
  15. If you're after close up filters add '95mm Focar A' & '95mm Focar B' to your list of Ebay saved searches - these are vintage Voigtlander +1 & +2 diopters. I believe they were made to suit an early Voigt zoom lens and are quality plus.   I say this because I just picked up a mint 95mm Focar B for $50!
  16. none of the footage is cropped
  17. Finally posted these tests - sunset shots aren't graded CA's haven't been removed   I'll post pics of the set up asap need more time in a day : )   https://vimeo.com/63980669
  18. these guys want you to contact them outside ebay - then they send you a bogus Ebay invoice claiming you're covered by Ebay protection - then item disappears from listing along with your $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Iscorama-Anamorphic-Lens-Pentax-M-42-mount-/330904239892 
  19. I was close with first post re Photo Higher Halo Gimbal - this is a game changer regardless of price point - this not a rig you shoot home movies with Vincent was correct with his headline - it's not a hobbyist rig   ....but it soon will be  : )
  20. Photo Higher are releasing their Halo series [direct drive] gimbals - I inquired about the pricing/shipping of the Halo 2000 to put on my modified Glidecam X10 rig ala the Mk V AR - reply was '...being released at NAB - keep in touch'
  21. Even worse, the scammers are trying to ride the Ebay anamooorphic wave   watch out for 2 Isco 36's [1 is a pentax m42] from US 'Buy It Now'  $2,500USD   you have to email them with yr details - they send a bogus Ebay invoice - you pay they run!!   "...drop your linen and start your grinnin"
  22. That's hilarious man - nice job!  I do lots of AE, been lovin' Element 3D lately - so much quicker than Zaxwerks Inivig.
