  1. I’ve been asked to do a movie with longer clips, no digital zoom effect, movement, no indian ;) … Here it is ;)
 â€¨My impressions ont the lens : solid, heavy (420g), compact, sharp at full aperture T2.1, only 8.5cm minimum focus distance.
The ND filter : good first impressions, and two great options on it : lever and hard stop ! Perfect for video !

     

    A sunday afternoon in the parc Majolan
    (SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K)

    SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K and 96fps 1080p mode

     

     

    This is my second movie with the upcoming SLR Magic 10mm T2.1(eq. f1.8), and their upcoming variable ND filter ! (released in october 2014)
    1st movie is here :

     

    SLR MAGIC 10mm T2.1 (f1.8 eq.), shot between T2.1 and T5.6
SLR Magic ND variable filter
    GH4 4K cinema mode + 96fps 1080p mode
EOSHD cineV settings +0, -5, -5, -2, +2 (eoshd.com) but pedestal on 0
    No color correction
    Music : Robert Wyatt « Sea Song Â»

     


  2. Minimum focus distance is measured from the sensor plane to the closest subject not from the front lens element. You'll find a mark on the top of any camera that looks like this ( Φ ), it indicates where the sensor is, which is used for measuring focus distance.

     

    I know I know... But what is important to me and more meaningful is the minimum distance between the lens and the object :)


  3. Can I just ask, what's the deal with cine lenses like the SLR magic/Rokinon's? is there actually a picture quality improvement? A resolution/detail improvement? Or is it just the clickless aperture/better focus throw? yadda yadda.

     

    SLR makes lenses with a kind of special ascetic, not cold or digital like we can notice in Olympus/panasonic lenses.

    And there we have a fast 10mm, that is not available in the other brands yet.


  4. Hello my friends,

    TECHNICAL INFOS PRESS RELEASE :

     

     

    NEW: THE SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 and SLR Magic 77 ND 0.4-ND 1.8 filter

    SLR Magic expands its micro four thirds lineup with new wide angle lens
     
    Hong Kong, China (September 3, 2014)  - SLR Magic expands the micro four thirds lens lineup with the new SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 wide angle lens. With this latest addition, the portfolio of lenses for the micro four thirds system is now comprised of thirteen focal lengths. The product will be officially introduced during upcoming Photokina 2014 fair in Cologne.
     
    The field of view of this new HyperPrime Lens corresponds to a 20mm lens in 35mm format and this fast wide angle of view opens up many new creative composition opportunities, particularly in the fields of interior, architectural and landscape cinematography and photography. Additionally, a fast max aperture of T2.1 makes the SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 ideal for available-light photography.
     
    We place our highest priority in the development on our lenses to fulfill the demands of professional cinematographers and photographers. The design and build of the SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 is solid and reliable.

    The SLR Magic 77 ND 0.4-ND 1.8 filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction of about 1.3 to 6 stops. The 0.4 to 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring via the non-removable lever. By slowing your exposure time you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Both filter substrates are combined into one filter ring, this filter is low profile and helps to eliminate vignetting on most lenses. The front filter ring diameter is 86mm in diameter, further helping to reduce vignetting, on wide angles lenses such as the SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 lens. 
     
    The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 (MSRP: $799 US) and SLR Magic 77 ND 0.4-ND 1.8 filter (MSRP: $179 US) will be available from authorized SLR Magic dealers starting end of October 2014.

    The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 10mm T2.1 will be first presented at Photokina 2014 fair. The SLR Magic stand would be in (No. L-011, Hall 5.1) during the fairs which are to be held in Cologne from 16th to 21st of September 2014. For all those who want to visit Photokina 2014 fairs.
     
    SLR Magic is currently looking for volunteers to test this lens at a special price. If interested:
    1. Send an email to [email protected] with the subject "SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 volunteer".
    2. Include sample videos/photos or link to photo/video reviews you have done in the past.

  6. Nice vid, sharp anamorph lens too. What c-mount adapter did you use with this? And did you modify the c-mount lens as well?

     

    Thanks raf702. I have a Metabones adapter, and yes, the rear barrel of the lens is limed, because it was too large for the adapter to be fully screwed
