  1. Redstan, Tony and Alan are all the same person. You can add Keyser Söze to the list to.
  2. What did you pay for and never get in return? I have bought over a dozen clamps and jackets over the years and had never had any issues.
  3. I think you are mistaken. First of all his name is not Tony and he is no where near this age from my feeling. I do hope this Tony and others do pull through in this horrific time for all our loved ones. Redstan is the devil, he will never die.
  4. If I was starting from scratch, I would go for a Sankor because they are cheap, all over the place and look really good. That with a ProtoDNA would be a nice combo I think. Bolex 8/19 would be nice to. If you are shooting s35 or Full Frame then unfortunately things get rare and expensive. The Vazen lens might be the best bet after DIY scopes. Or a SIRUI. Good luck!
  5. I'm gonna give it to you straight. If this can't even focus to infinity then you are looking at a big gold CinemaScope paper weight. Even if you could the amount you would pay for the variable diopter would be worth much more then this lens. Also you will have not many choices as far as taking lens and forget going wide. I think a Sankor would be a better way to go and much easier on your back to bring around. If it can't go to infinity forget it. Cheers.
  6. I came up with a solution for a 30mm FOV and love it but it's going to take some time and money for you to get all the pieces. It's MFT only and duel focus but I got it down based off of distances. Unfortunately there is no other way for DIY anamorphic to get this wide. LA700 would be the next best thing but you won't get this wide. I use a Voigtländer 40mm f2 instead of the Pen F 38mm and it looks even better then this video.
  7. Testing Bolex Anamorphot set with various taking lens and the GH5 5k. 8/19/1.5x Ultra Wide Angle setup + Voigtländer 40mm f2 or Olympus 38mm f1.8 (30mm FOV) + Raynox HD-6600PRO-49 Wide Angle Conversion Lens (0.66x) + 16x9 169-HDV75X-82 0.75 Wide Angle Converter Lens Bolex 16/32/1.5 "Unicorn" + Pentax 40mm f2.8 DA (80mm FOV) Bolex 16/32/1.5 + Voigtländer 40mm f2 (80mm FOV) 8/19/1.5x + Jupiter 11a 135mm (270mm FOV) I mix the 8/19/1.5x and the Bolex 16/32 footage together. Adding to the lexicon of footage out there. If it does not show up in your country on Youtube, here is the Vimeo link.
  8. The Olympus 45mm f1.8 sounds nice. The Olympus Pen F 38mm f1.8 is a personal favorite of mine. Cheap, sharp and full of character. Other wise I use machine vision c-mount lens.
  9. Nice lens but I must say that shots have been fired I own the Baby Hypergonar and did own the Kowa 8 2x before I sold it. I would slow down with the Baby Hypergonar bashing. First of all, my copy and another friend who has the same lens both confirm that we could not reach infinity with the Kowa 8 2x. It is a lovely lens and you have produced some really nice images but nobody puts my Baby Hypergonar in the corner
  10. I have been experimenting for years with aspheric lens and other wide-angle attachments to get a wider FOV for my anamorphic lens and never had very good results. I'm happy to announce that if you are a proud owner of a Bolex 8/19/1.5x, this might be a solution you will like. I shot these yesterday. By my estimate it's a 15mm on MFT or 30mm FOV full frame. The pros are no diopters are needed and you can focus as close as 10 inches. The downside is duel focus which is very easy with this set up for me. I did have chromatic aberrations but that could have been polarizer. I need to check. It's a great solution for wide establishing shots, car shots or getting wide close ups. Only works with Bolex 8/19 an MFT users.

  12. Here a collection of shots I took the last few days with Kowa Inflight 1.75x + Voigtländer 40mm f2. + Rectilux HCDNA + Redstan and Fujinon achromatic diopters. Tokina Cinema PRO IRND. All shot at f2.8

  15. I will! I use the 25mm 0.95 Voightlander without the HCDA with Kowa Inflight and the 17.5mm with GH5. I love the look of those as well. The Aivascope and 16-H are both great pieces of glass. This entire video was shot with Kowa Inflight and 25mm f0.95 Voightlander.
  16. I had 3 and sold one recently for 2k. It's an amazing piece of glass. I got the HCDNA machined to fit the Inflight. The one on the top in picture. Redstan makes a great clamp for it. I shot this with the GH4 a few years back. The Inflight really transforms to the taking lens you use.
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. Rut Row! I believe this is a rebranded Sankor. I think you joined a different club Sorry to say.
  20. GH5+ Bolex 16/32/1.5x + Voigtländer 40mm f2 + ProtoDNA. Run and gun. Shot 90% wide open at f2 and 10% at f2.8.

     

  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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
