  2. Sort of. Their name is on a lot of miscellaneous accessories that are sold in the US, but Bower is best known for being one of three major brands that sells the same affordable set of cine lenses (along with Rokinon and Samyang). They are also the exclusive distributor for the exotic 40mm f/0.85 IBELUX lens. I have no idea which OEM is behind this filter, all I know is that it's being sold on eBay and Amazon with the Bower label. And it's quite impressive for the price.
  3. I broke my L.C.W Fader Variable ND II a while back, and finally got around to replacing it. I decided to give the Bower variable ND a try, at $40. Bower makes decent lenses, so I thought I might luck out. And luck out, I did. It's definitely better than the L.C.W, with less bokeh striation / "texture", no noticeable color shift up to the strongest setting, and the characteristic 'X' pattern only shows up at the very strongest settings (7/8+), as opposed to on the L.C.W where it dominates the image at every strength above 2/3 or so. I haven't tried many higher end variable ND filters, but I'd
  4. I'm in a similar situation, and am looking at the CAME-7000 3-axis gimbal. It sells for just under $1000 on eBay, and has very positive reviews. The only reason I'd go with anything other than a brushless gimbal for stabilization now, is if I were using heavier camera rigs (7+ lbs), or really didn't want to use batteries for stabilization, for some reason.
  5. Question: does using the BMCC Speedbooster on a GH4 cause any noticeable loss in quality as compared to a standard MFT Speedbooster? The optical engineer responsible for designing the Speedboosters was concerned about this over on bmcuser, but as far as I know no one has actually tested or proven this. Beyond this, are people happy with using a BMCC Speedbooster on their GH4? Any vignetting on lenses like the Sigma 18-35? I'm about to sell my GH2 and buy a GH4, and I'm wondering if I should at the same time sell my MFT/Nikon Speedbooster, and pick up the BMCC version.
