  1. Hi everybody!

    I know this is off topic, i'm sorry, but I just released my last feature film on Amazon's Prime Video and i wanted to share with some friend from here.

    Follow the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZHRZ782

     This film took some time(around 3 years), it was shot on Nikons and Super 16mm.

    A little background: https://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/39600-my-film-on-amazon-prime-video-shot-with-dslr-and-film/

    PS: I'm almost finishing shooting a movie i'm DP, it has quite a lot of GH5 and mix some Alexa in there, so the plan is use GHAlex ;)

    Sorry for the "Off-topic spam". 

  2. Hi, i been busy buy but i wanted to share this short film i did last year.

    The video is private, the film is now going thru festivals, so please don't make it public. But feel free to show with friends.


    This was shot with GH5 and the used GHAlex Clog conversion, then B/W film emulation.

  3. have you tried lowering the resolution of your timeline/project, using "smart cache" and "optimized media" functions?

    I seen very fluid result on old computers with resolve 16 when combining all this options.

    What's your post diffusion workflow if you don't mind me asking?

    Ah! Yeah I'd be really happy to learn more about your post workflow for diffusion, I always find it a little bit fake...

    I will try answer you both. I think that to make it realistic it all came down to "order of operation". If you add a diffusion fx in post, make it to be in the very first step of the chain, or at least after the WB/exposure corrections. The grading, look and fxs have to come after that. 

    raw footage ▶️ Diffusion ▶️ corrections ▶️ secondary corrections ▶️ grading/look/ mastering

    Tiffen has it's Dfx plugins witch are really nice, but i also use the Red Giant Looks diffusion, those look great also. Oh! and make sure you are working on 32bit color space.

    Did you use a speedbooster with your Takumar lenses?

    Yes. I use the Viltrox EF-m2 its way cheaper. Also, it's a tiny bit softer than the Metabones, but for my taste it helps to reduce the super sharpness of Panasonic cameras.

    This is great work. What diffusion filters are you using?

    I used Tiffen black pro mist in the past, but more and more often im opting for using diffusion in post production. Except for some very minor thing i found no difference in using diffusion in post, and you got  the advantage of adjusting it shot by shot.

    This was a very tight production, and time was short. So I decided to shot very clean and then finish in post. Although the vintage Pentax glass has some very particular look.

    Great shots, nice colors. Production design also looking really good.

    I am curious what Takumars you used here. As I have been on market for a nice Takumar set because what I have seen so far from these lenses I really like what I see. I already own full cine converted FD set but Takumars has own color and look for sure :)

    I have a 50 f1.4, really sharp wide open, but not acutance. I have used the 35mm f2 in the past, its excellent but hard to find. The only problem with my 50mm is that when you stop it down color start to vary every stop, its prone to go more to a yellow tint.

  7. Hello!

    I have new stills from a recent shot I was DPing. It's another theme, Kinda of game of thrones thing 😉. I think this is a good point of reference to see how color look in this type of forest/swamp with those costumes and production design. Here i used some old vintage Takumar lenses because of the organic look they have, i think they help to sell the fantasy theme.

    I use the same procedure I always do, and my style of grade using GHa Daylight to LogC. And diffusion LOT of diffusion!

    Why didn't they opt for GH5?

    I mentioned it but the director really wanted the full frame look, also there are some situations of low key lighting and despite i always light my scenes, the sony do respond really well in low key.

    On one hand i did some test shots and was able to get some nice color from the Sony. But honestly i prefer the GH5 for IQ and if i can I'm gonna steal some shots with mine for the film.

  9. Love the push is Nikon doing for this 2019... Raw Hdmi output, more body for different budgets.

    The only thing that is weird for me is the D5700. Imho i't does't make much sense to launch a new "DSLR" style for the lower market, because in general the entry level user looks for the more "practical" features and easy to use. New shooters are in general younger people, and they come from using their phones or some type of hybrid camera. I Think they should aim to a Aps-c mirrorless like the m50, cheap but more prosumer and better build. The DSLR market are more the old professionals, the people with experience that still like the mirror system.

    i don't know, is the way i see it.

    I know the forum is mainly driven by lusting after gear and pixel peeping but if you should ever have the time and motivation, I would love to see a "behind the scenes" thread from you where you tell more about your process (without hijacking this one). Planning, shooting, post. I think your videos are some of the best I've ever seen by a participant of this forum.

    I usually never record or register my productions layout but if I find some time I'll try to write something about it.

    If you have any specific question you wanna know, write me a private massage and I'll try to put it on a different thread so we don't go off topic.

    Hello, congratulations for the work with the image of your last work;). Forgive my English as an XD translator. I would like you to explain the workflow and if you have learned or have learned something different from the GHAlex tips IN YOUR pdf. According to what you said, you recorded with CinelikeD (PARAMETERS?) And then you went to LogC? AS?. And about the grading, do you use premiere or Davinci ?. Also, if we take those images in Vlogl and use the GHAlex, the result is not the same.  A greeting.


    Hola, enhorabuena por el trabajo con la imagen de tu último trabajo ;). Perdonar mi Ingles de traductor XD. Me gustaria que  explicases el flujo de trabajo y si variaste o has aprendido algo diferente de los consejos de GHAlex EN SUS pdf. Segun lo que has comentado, grabaste con CinelikeD (¿PARAMETROS?) ¿Y luego pasaste a LogC? ¿COMO?. Y sobre el etalonaje, ¿usas premiere o Davinci?. Ademas, si cogemos esas imagenes en Vlogl y usamos el GHAlex, el resultado no es el mismo. Un saludo.

    Hola, yo también hablo español 😄 es mi primer lengua.

    Los consejos de GHAlex de los PDF son una gran guia! Yo implemento lo que recomienda en respecto a filmar con Cinelike D, luego vario un poco en respecto a mi flujo de trabajo tradicional. Si, luego lo convierto a LogC y ahi parto de la base de ya trabajar con LogC de costumbre. La ventaja de LogC es que es reconocido como estándar universal. El grading no lo trabajo ni en Premiere ni en Davinci, lo hago todo en After effects. Si, se que es un proceso engorroso, pero es una costumbre que tengo de hace varios años, en algun momento me terminare de pasar a Davinci. Premiere es lo peor para grading, nunca trabajas en una buena profundidad de bits para tener alta calidad, un desastre, en cambio After effects en sus 32 bit es muy preciso y obtienes renders de muy alta calidad.

    @Wild Ranger Very nice work! I also am a big fan of the colored versions. 

    Your lighting is particularly nice also - Are you using any fill on these close-ups or is this all natural light? 

    That was all natural light, no fill. 😉

    Any news on this issue? Im having the same vertical line in my footage

    Nop. As i mentioned before, I have keep using the camera and never faced the issue again. it's obviously a fixed noise pattern issue, there's no fix. Just don't underexpose too much!!!

    so you converted these stills from CineD to Vlog?

    I only asked because I felt the B&W actually has a different look than other B&W I’ve seen from the GH5, so I thought maybe you noticed a difference running it through GHA first.

    Yes, it is different! Also it depends how you grade it. In know that maybe using the GHA lut for converting to LogC for doing B&W seems a waste, but I just like going this way. That's why i shared some stills in color, i wanted to see the result just by curiosity. 😁
