  1. THE LAKES (AIVASCOPE 1.5x anamorphic lens with Canon FD 35mm f2 paired with Speedbooster) this is my fourth film test with the new Aivascope 1.5x anamorphic lens on my Panasonic GH4, paired with Canon FD 35mm f2 and Metabones Speedbooster. The Aivascope anamorphic 1.5x lens is a very sharp lens working great with some of my primes. It’s a single focus lens (you do the focus on it and let the prime on infinity). The speed booster gave sharper, faster and wider shots paired with the prime Canon FD 35mm f2. If my calculation is good it gives a (35mm X 2,34) : (1,5x) X 0,71x) = 38mm (in the width) « 35mm equivalent » with 1.8 aperture In this 4th movie you will see different shots done with (Canon aperture from wide open f2 to f4) : GH4 4K uhd (no CC) 24p + Aivascope 1.5x anamorphic lens with Canon FD 35mm f2 on Metabones Speedbooster I’ve used a Starblitz variable ND lens, on the GH4 the picture mode is on « portrait » with slight ajustments. I did no color corrections at all. Thanks for watching. Heres is the characteristics of the Aivascope 1.5x lens : Designed for Full Frame systems.

  2. AIVASCOPE 1.5x anamorphic lens, 2nd hands-on GH4 after this two tests : vimeo.com/341289409 vimeo.com/342429735 this is my third film test with the new Aivascope 1.5x anamorphic lens on my Panasonic GH4. It’s a very sharp lens working great with some of my primes. It’s a single focus lens (you do the focus on it and let the prime on infinity) In this 3rd movie you will see different shots done with (aperture wide open) : GH4 4K uhd (no CC) 24p + Aivascope 1.5x anamorphic lens Primes : Pentax-m 40mm pancake f2.8 at f2.8 (most of the time) Pentax-m 40mm + 2x vintage Telemore95 II at f2.8 Sicor-XL MC 28mm f2.8 at f2.8 Despite the fact the Pentax-m 40mm is less wider than the others, I like the result with it. The TELEMORE95 II 2x lens converter (bought 3€ on a flea market) does missed sharpness to the 40mm from Pentax (and the Aivascope), and I loose maybe 2 stops with it. I’ve used a Dorr variable ND lens, on the GH4 the picture mode is on « portrait » with slight ajustments. I did no color corrections at all. Thanks for watching.

  3. Full Frame AIVASCOPE 1.5X single focus anamorphic lens on Sony A7S II + Panasonic S1 I have the (quick) opportunity to film on full frame such as Sony A7S II and Panasonic S1 with the new AIVASCOPE 1.5X single focus anamorphic lens. It’s the first time I’m filming with A7S II, sorry for the overexposed shots. With this experience with the A7S II, I think I prefer the GH4 -it’s video codec rendering and it’s viewfinder- I just have a few time and a very few lenses. The 40mm is maybe too wide and vignetting with the Avaiscope, especially on close focus, also because of the ND filter. It’s better to film with it from 50mm. Some of the shots had been slightly cropped. The M42 Vivitar 135mm was just used here to show more the anamorphic bokeh. The Pentax-dfa 100mm f2.8 is also not really adapted, it was quite hard to focus with it, but the background is more out of focus. The Panasonic Lumix S Pro 50 mm f/1.4 is really not adapted it’s vignetting, due to its depth and maybe it’s filter large thread (77mm). We will see when there will be adapters for the Panasonic S1, to provide shorter vintage lenses. The Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm at 70mm at f/4.0 is obviously not adapted (the last four shots), anyway its a zoom, not surprising… When I will have another access to the A7SII with better adapted primes I will do a much more proper test. Thanks for watching. Comments are appreciate.

  7. Mmm not so sure be careful, I had to crop a little sometimes because of the moving vignetting. It also depends of the construction of the lens
  8. Thnaks Keessie65. I have to think about it. And will do some test with a more tele lens to avoid the slight crop
  9. Thanks elgabogomez I do appreciate. The problem is that the vignetting is moving with the stabilization... For a medium shot maybe between 3 and 4 meters. Thanks Teemu, I've watched your video, nice work. I told 35mm to the GH5. I don't have the GH5 with me but I don't think there is slo-mo yet on 4:3 aspect anamorphic mode is in h264, 10 bit I don't think so. I have to check. I shot only in 6K, which is 8 bit bad fully not yet desqueeze in the camera Thanks PannySVHS No I was in natural mode -5 everywhere except saturation at +4. I hope firmware will give better results for the IBIS, such as choosing the horizontal or vertical stab yes it should be better with this choice We'll see if one day we would have the choice of type of IBIS
  10. This is my first test of using the 6K 29,97p 3:2 ratio on the new GH5. I'm happy with the results, please tell me what you think. But I want to share my teething troubles working with the GH5. 1- The first question was which focal lens setting did I have to choose for the stabiliser. My prime lens is a 35mm, but did I have to include the 1,75x factor of the anamorphic, that is influencing only on the width ? My first impression is that the internal stabiliser is not really the friend of anamorphic lens, some distortions or rolling shutter. There is some small moments in the movie that you can notice, but most of the strongest were unedited. Because of the prime lens which is 35mm, and maybe the wildest I can use with my baby Hypergonar anamorphic lens, I had to zoom in the image sometimes, when it's in movement for example, to avoid moving vignetting in the frame. I did up to 17%. 2- the H265 codec that is used for the 6K mode I had problems editing the 6K mode video. I have Premiere CC2017, but even when it downloads the H265 / HEVC codec, I couldn't really import the original files. Some of them were working, but most of them had strange result on the timeline with green colors. And not to mention the lag with playing the video, on Premiere or VLC. I test it on two different iMac, mine that is a end 2012 with 24 Go of RAM, and at the university that is a 5k iMac with 8 Go. So I transcoded the video with Handbrake, which surprisingly accept the 5184*3486 with H264 5.2 level. Then I decided to export directly in anamorphic without the black bars, in 5184*1976, then doing a same dimension sequence in Premiere. Badfully I couldn't export the same dimension when I finished my edit on Premiere, so I did it in the maximum that my version of Premiere accept at my home : 4K (4096 maximum on the width). When I will find the solution, I will export it in its original dimension 5184*1976. Having troubles with a new camera and a "new codec" and new dimension "6k" is not new for me and I accept it I remember when a long time ago when I bought the GH1 I had to switch from Final Cut Pro 7 to Premiere to be able to edit the H264 clips directly on the timeline. Thanks for watching the movie and do not hesitate giving me your opinion and your experience with editing 6K material from this new beast named GH5 !

  11. Thanks LOM I do appreciate. I never saw this original music video , but I like so much this track !
  12. Thanks Timotheus. Yes it's pairing well with the Pentax lens
