  1. The Moller 32/2X is known to be a very good lens to achieve filmic results when wanting to shoot anamorphic content. It adds a lot of character. Considering the age, this is very good shape, with only slight marks on front (mostly) and rear (slightly) elements. See pictures. Also included is a RedStan clamp, which is known to be high quality. It has a 52mm thread on the other end. I have tested it successfully with a Panasonic 45-150 lens which happens to be 52mm. Some footage testing of the Moller 32/2x taken with Panasonic G9, Panasonic 45-150. Shot at 4K/60P - desqueezed, and sl
  2. After managing to test it more with the 45-150 I'm seeing really good results. I'll be posting a video clip shortly. Basically I'll be selling the Moller W/the clamp only. Since the quality is really good, I'll be setting a price of $500. If you really want the Helios, let me know and I can include it in the box for free.
  3. Price: $325.00 Payment method: PayPal Item condition: 8+ Shows moderate wear or finish marks Shipping instructions: USPS Priority shipping to CONUS and Paypal Fee included. Panasonic GH3 - includes battery, charger, neckstrap & camera cap. Shutter Count: 21068. Particularly great for video - no time limit! Also includes Panasonic 45-150 w/front & rear caps, hood, pouch, a Panasonic 14-42 lens with circular polarizer (but no caps), as well as variable nd filter. Both filters fit both lenses. Furthermore, you get a brand new cleaning kit, as well as a fast 32GB memory card.
  4. In order to show the Moller lens as sharp at a different aperture, here is a shot where I held it up to a regular Panasonic 45-150 lens at F4 (fastest aperture). I let the AF do the job, and tried to hold the Moller in place with my hand. Obviously not an ideal test, but as you can see, it's pretty sharp at faster apertures with the right lens and/or setup. No sharpening done, only resized to desqueeze, then sized down to 4k resolution.
  5. A few years back I was interested in trying Anamorphic filming with my GH3. I ended up buying a lens from a member on this forum (@Francisco Rios) in a pleasant transaction. However, upon receiving the lens, I realized that time constraints on my schedule precluded me to do much with it, so it has been safely stored since. I never shot any movies, but Francisco has an album with some impressive footage he shot: Vimeo album - examples Some notes about the pictures: 1. Keep in mind that Helios is not known for being a sharp lens, but Francisco's videos show how great it can be. I took
  6. Apologies, accidentally posted this in the wrong section. Recreating the topic in Gear Sales...
  7. Should note that since then, Panasonic did another firmware update that enables dual IS. Have not tested lens ois or dual is since, I'm afraid.
  8. For video? Doesn't it lack IBIS, limited 4K to cropped UHD at 30 fps? No flippy screen either. About same resolution as a G9/GH5 and the even the GH5 is a couple of hundred bucks cheaper. (Not to mention the vast array of other Video related features you get with a GH5)
  9. ..and Sony! That goes for Sony too. Not much progress on APS-C cameras lately. All the manufacturers except Panasonic/Olympus (m43, not aps-c of course) - seem to favor giving decent functionality and upgrades only in FF. (Panasonic/Olympus might not do much better either IF they currently had FF - yeah I know Panasonic is working on it, but not out yet!)
  10. Agreed, but they need both smaller and larger bodies coming out at a lower price point. Hovering around $2K for bodies will be tough to justify unless they have vastly better features compared to full frame at similar prices. At lest Olympus has the appeal of PDAF if they bother putting it in more competitively priced cameras. On another note: Panasonic states they will NEVER (probably a bit exaggerated but..) abandon m43. https://www.43rumors.com/panasonic-we-will-never-give-up-on-mft-because-70-of-the-system-camera-market-is-not-full-frame/ That said, I have just bought my f
  11. Love your site Andrew, and the unfiltered opinions as well - though I feel in this case you may have read a bit too much between the lines (probably because feeling dissed by BMD over the last few years?). I'd rather you have a critical look at the camera - you touched on a major omission like lack of IBIS - which I find to be a deal-breaker as the camera is too big to be mounted on many electronic stabilizers. Also, you could point out that while RAW and ProRes is great, why not provide an option with codecs similar to what Panasonic, Sony, and Fuji manages to put in - so we don't have to get
  12. Being a hybrid shooter with a somewhat limited budget, I decided on the G9 for my photo needs, and with the pocket cinema camera 4k, I will cover any of my more advanced video needs. Fantastic Beast! Very excited about this camera!
  13. Thanks, that is the problem with messages sometimes - it can be interpreted every which way
  14. I'm not sure if you intended it this way - but it sounds to me you think Panasonic is rushing to add features, in a bad way (I.e. focusing on the wrong things)? Regardless, I think Panasonic is showing that they are actively listening to the market and adding features people are actually asking for. (Of course, more so on the video side, which this site is about, than the photography side, where they are struggling more with sensor size and focusing limitations). I think the Sony reference is mostly because when Sony came out with 4K, people were saying "Why buy a Panasonic - the sony has stab

    GH5 Prototype

    I think it would be cool to have it on the GX85, but I am in the camp that will likely get the G85, just because it does have these features like mic jack for Video. Sure, it is not outstanding quality, but for some things it will do (the same cannot be said for GX85 built in mic), and besides I can at least record a half decent sync track that would be easier to match with a recording from a dedicated recorder.
  16. Yes, I will definitely start looking at that then. Thanks again
  17. Tokina 28-70 F2.8, Tokina 100-300 F4 (it's a bit of a beast), a Tamron ultrawide, a Tamron macro 90mm, minolta 50mm 1.7, and a couple of others.
  18. Yes, I recall the problem with that is that due to flange distance or something, you cannot get an adapter unless it has an additional piece of glass. I'm concerned enough with the glass in the booster, so that would probably not be wise. Maybe it is time to bite the bullet and ditch the Sony/Minolta glass. Cinegain and BrorSvensson, thanks for the replies!
  19. Sony just announced their new a99 successor, so they seem to keep it alive still. The odd thing is that Metabones creates a a-mount adapter that works with Fuji x (and Sony Nex, which makes a lot of sense of course)
  20. i'm not looking for the older minolta md speedboosters, and I don't see anything for the Sony Alpha ones. I did search first you know.. I was hoping someone had communications from Metabones on what their plans are, or some obscure company has put one out.
  21. I actually wonder how big the handheld electronic gimbals will become, as more and more cameras have really good built in stabilization. I can see something like a Panasonic/Olympus in some cases do without any other stabilization, and in other cases using glidecams etc.
  22. First off, sorry if this has been asked before - I have been out of the loop for a while. I am looking for a speedbooster to use all my Sony Alpha/Minolta glass on my m43 cameras. I see Metabones so far has omitted creating an adapter, but does anyone know if there is anything in the works, or if other brands offer such an adapter? Thanks!
