  1. Hey Justin, I have a few of those Rapido clamps laying around. I love to try the same thing with Bolex 8/19. How did you hold Yashica in place and have hood cover? What are your rings? Thats a Nikon spacer?
  2. Baby Hypergonar 1.75x in Redstan jacket + MeVis 35mm + Proto DNA. I also do this combo with the 38mm f1.8 Pen F and it's super tight.
  3. Rut Row! I believe this is a rebranded Sankor. I think you joined a different club Sorry to say.
  4. GH5+ Bolex 16/32/1.5x + Voigtländer 40mm f2 + ProtoDNA. Run and gun. Shot 90% wide open at f2 and 10% at f2.8.


  5. GH5+ Bolex 16/32/1.5x + Voigtländer 40mm f2 + ProtoDNA. Run and gun. Shot 90% wide open at f2 and 10% at f2.8. Incredible combo Kees!
  6. Thanks. It seems like the right way to go. The TZ CAM E2G is nice and has a global shutter. I'm really excited about the next version of the ZcamE2 that has a global shutter. I will make the jump! Cheers.
  7. Thanks Chris, I have been rocking the GH2, GH3, GH4 and now the GH5. It is the end of the line for me with the GH line. I really learned allot and I have lots of footage I love. There are a few exciting camera's out and coming out. GH5 with the 10 bit was a big plus over 8 bit. I want something with great color science like the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 but also with a small form factor. The Z CAM E-2 4K looks nice. For me the dream specs would good color science, 10 bit, 120 fps 4k, small form factor, global shutter, Pro Res Raw or HQ with MFT mount. I have invested and built up a collection of vintage glass in MFT so I'm rocking this formate for a while. With all that said, I still think my best footage came off my hacked GH2
  8. My best footage I filmed in North Carolina from 2015-2019. I shot on a GH4 and the GH5 in 4k with the scenery setting. I filmed 1.75x in 16:9 and 4:3 and 1.5x in 16:9 Anamorphic Lens used : 1. Baby Hypergonar 1.75x 2. Bolex 8/19 1.5x anamorphot 3. Bolex 16/32 1.5x anamorphot Taking lens: Voigtlander 40mm f2, Schneider-Kreuznach 50mm f/1.9 Xenon, Olympus Zuiko Pen 38mm f/1.8, Schneider Xenoplan 28mm f2, and a MeVis 35mm f1.6 Variable diopters used: 1. Rectilux 3FF-S 2. Proto DNA 3. Focuser 8 I also used a Tokina +0.4 Achromatic, Fujinon +0.7 and a Narumi +3 diopter for close up shots. If there is a shot you like let me know and I will tell you the combo. Cheers!
  9. I shot an entire video duel focusing with the Bolex 16/32. It's not that bad once you get the hang. I was blind by the end of the day. Vision totally blurred. I use a ProtoDNA variable diopter now with a 40mm on GH5. I would recommend getting a single focus solution because of where and tear on the Bolex.
  10. Thanks for watching and your kind review. I just do what I love. I love the travel and filming nature and then coming back and doing editing, sound design and music. Norway next year.
  11. I wanted to share a run and gun vacation travel film in Costa Rica. I took a Baby Hypergonar 1.75x with Voigtländer 40mm f2 and Bolex 8/19/1.5x with Jupiter 11a f4 135mm. I had a ProtoDNA variable diopter in front of both combos. GH5 scenery setting. Finished in 5k.
  12. I have always wanted to test with Fuijnon MK cine zooms. They look beautiful and are parfocal so you could do a zoom with anamorphic attachment. I have never seen a test yet.
  13. I have the Takumar V2 135mm f2.5 and found the Jupiter 11A to blow it away in sharpness. Plus you have a nice round aperture at every f-stop. Jupiter is f4 but looks so good
  14. I used Leeming Lut Pro and did not have any issues at all. It covers Cine D and HLG All my childhood photos are on Minolta glass. https://www.leeminglutpro.com/
  15. Thanks Julius, that sounds cool about documentary. I'm addicted to finding and creating the moving paintings in nature with anamorphic lens. I'm very old school with my approach to color. I like to get things as close as possible to what I'm seeing. It's really the anamorphic lens, taking lens and filters that are giving me my look. I color with Film Convert to give me the greens, blues and yellows I like. Even then I dial the preset way down. I then use Lumetri to tweak contrast and highlights. With Davinci you have more tools and flexibility but for nature work, I feel the glass takes care of 90% of the final image. for my workflow, it's kinda tedious and not for everyone. I de- stretch each shot in it's native resolution. Some shot's are 8k and some 5k. I then do a first pass color treatment and then export out a Pro Res HQ 8k or 5k .mov file with max bit depth and render. Each clip I export is 20-30 sec's even know I end up using 6-8 secs. I then reimport and edit on a 5k timeline and do additional tweaks if needed. I'm sure working in Davinci with proxies might make more scents but I'm building a library of nature footage and want to go back to clips. The B&H and Minolta glass will create a very nice color pallet.
