  1. I was watching "Fear the walking dead" 1st Episode and I saw flares, I was thinking they used streak filters but never saw flares like that with this kind of filters. It get my attention, and then I saw oval bokeh, did they use Dog Shit oval aperture ?! Then I went to IMDB Technical specs : Arri Alexa XT Plus, Panavision G-, T-Series, PVintage and Hawk V-Lite Vintage '74 Lenses. From what I know of this is the first tv serie shot in anamorphic! And I loved it! Dispointed by 16:9 format though....
  2. a anamorphic champion and a poet ! We miss you Stan. Come back please !!
  3. The best Bauch & Lomb test in my opinion : Lol, that blackmagic black spot !!!
  4. One week won't be enough I'm afraid. Learning anamorphic techniques is a long process. So why don't you share your job with someone who is familiar with anamorphic ? Not me I live in France btw...
  5. Other (and better) example of the swirled Bokeh from the Helios 58mm coupled with the Kowa for Bell & Howell on a Canon 5D MarkII.
  6. Please Mr Samsung ! 4:3 mode on the next firmware for the anamorphic shooters, thanks.
  7. ​Thanks for the info, really sad for the EVF though
  8. I've heard somewhere that the magnifictaion on the NX1 is only x4! I checked briefly in the manual but didn't find anything about it. It could be real issue, can someone help me about this because I was about to buy it? Thanks.
  9. ​Can somebody confirm that or do you have an example ? Because I'm about to buy the NX1 and thought that a S35 sensor should be better in low light than a m4/3 one...
  10. It's the first I've seen and heard about a wide angle adapter in front of an anamorphic set! Don't know what to think about it...
  11. ​+1 for the 4:3 mode and with 3:2 and 1:1 as well like in the GH4.
  12. Angenieux close up lenses no 1 and no 2 : what diopter is it ? +1 +0.5 ? Thanks
  13. Can other users can confirm this, ty ?
  14. +1. I had the same problem and use the same solution (pin corner on AE). Not easy but works pretty well.
  15. I don't know if it's from 2004 but looks recent anyway : Iscorama 700 Euros
  16. Just watch the bokeh, hi didn't use an anamorphic lens...
  17. Thanks for your answers. I'm gonna look at MJPEG on the GH2, my friend got one but non hacked, maybe he'll let me try it. Seb, if you have used this mode and can give me some tips, I will appreciate....
  18. Hi, I'm looking for an alternative to BMPCC or ML Raw to shoot 4:3 with my x2 anamorphic lens (Kowa for B&H) because I'm not ready for RAW. So I was wandering if any DSLR have an integrated 4:3 crop (hoping Panasonic G6 got it cause I would love to buy it)... My budget is around 1500 $, thanks.
  19. No bokeh, how could we figure it out? By the way, too much smoke IMO... I'll say 5D MarkIII Raw, non anamorphic.
  20. I don't agree with u Paulio. I think Double focus just need some practice even if I've never used it on set. I own a 5D MarkII with a Kowa for Bell & Howell (wich I highly recommand like John Barlow) and here is my last video, it's not Raw but H264. On this vid, I had only a short time (like 2 hours) and you'll see by yourself that double focus is possible... http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x16on4j_ange-aux-abbesses-anamorphic-kowa-for-bell-howell_creation
  21. Maybe you should post it in a editing forum instead...
  22. I use a M42 Takumar SMC 85mm 1.8 with a Kowa for Bell & Howell on a 5D MarkII and they're working fine together. It flares less than the older non coated version 85mm 1.9 of course but enough for my taste. The Takumar 85mm 1.8 is a very sought-after version, a bit expensive and rare but the 1.9 version is cheaper and easier to find.
  23. Hi,   yes it's a pretty good copy in my opinion, and I bought it like knew despite the years ! I'm pretty happy about it.   Here's a night footage with 2 friends, shot with the same Sankor 16D, a GH2 and a Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 :   https://vimeo.com/65214013   I bought recently "the" Kowa for Bell & Howell, also like new, but I'm waiting for a Resdstan clamp to use it.   Dying to try it !
  24. Hi,   new in anamorphic, here's my first footage, shot in a french parc the first shiny day of spring in Paris.   Using Super Takumar (no coating) 100mm f/2.8 and Takumar SMC 135mm f/2.5 as talking lenses.   http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xy8wqf_anamorphic-sankor-16d-buttes-chaumont_creation#.UYFC88r42uM   Almost not graded, but cropped to aproximatly 1.85 to avoid vigneting.   Since this footage, I often use a big cheap plastic lens hood (72mm) to avoid (not completly though) the white vigneting when pointed in front of the sun or strong light. Never heard
