  1. Hi Guys. Im after some spare parts for a lomo 35mm round front. In short someone has used an abrasive instead of a grease in the helicoil and its worn the threads down to a point where the focus is loose and has too much play. Does anyone have any spare parts for the lens, maybe one that got smashed or thats been rehoused and these parts are surplus? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hey Guys Im just building up a small collection of anamorphic's that interest me for a test im doing. Does anyone know what the best clamp is for the isco ultrastar red. Im a massive fan of Redstan and have had his clamps on every anamorphic adapter ive ever owned. On the ultra star tho (and I cant really tell from the photos online, hence asking here) It does seem like, 1 there is a screw in piece that looks like it might mas a small area of the glass. and 2, the clamp looks like it means you cant get the taking les as close to the ana glass as I could if I used a vid atlantic clamp, which looks like its flush with the anamorphic lens. Any one got any experience? vignetting/wider taking lens issues. Nice one The rapido, and raf camera ones also look good for this lens
  3. Hi, 


    Are you able to sent them to Lymington, Hampshire SO41 0FF and please let me know the delivery cost, but if you are around Southampton and Bournemouth, I would be happy to go to collect them.


  4. On reflection, price is possibly a bit high. £500 For those of you that don't know, The FM module allows you to focus from close to infiniti without having to focus both lenses.
  5. Schneider 2x cinelux MC anamorphic lens and anamorphic shop FM module combo for sale. Both in fantastic condition. Schneider lens, optics are perfect, and the outer body is ver very good. be tiny scratches and some marks where its been clamped to (but its going to be inside the FM Module anyways. I would say optically 10 out of 10. Cosmetically 8 out of 10. Focus Module is like now. Only used a handful of times. Optically perfect, cosmetically perfect. Also has a custom built focus ring. Pictured. All you need to get up and running is have a taking lens of your choice and a lens mount of your choice. (and of course a camera) 600 GBP for both. Would prefer UK sale.
  6. Thanks richg101. We wish it was a more narrative based short too. We did shoot dialogue in the middle and were going to break the track up, fade down to live action and come back into the song for the end. But the label didnt go for it sadly.
  7. Here is another Promo we recently shot with a set of Kowas (40, 50, 75, 100mm) that I though some people might like to see. Any thoughts or feedback welcome.
  8. SOLD to Chris Elkerton - Couldn't have gone to a nicer guy.
  9. Its very hard to say without seeing the true / original image, but for sure the 1.4x looks better but she might have just had a round face! I grade a lot of music promos and its not uncommon for the Label to ask to give a 5-10% squeeze on the footage horizontally to make the artist look slimmer. Happens and awful lot, especially with female artist.
  10. Hi Guys. For those of you that are interested. If you change the clip attributes to DVCProHD pixel aspect ratio in resolve. You het a perfect desqueeze without having to scale or warp. Vey handy. Thanks to Chris Elkerterton for the heads up.
  11. Surely that didn't give you the correct de-squeeze tho?
  12. Iscorama pre 36 by the way (1.5x on 5kHD so 16:9 frame size)
  13. Here is the image incase anyone cares. This was a guestimate desqueeze. 5k HD REDCODE - 5:1 HELIOS 58mm - f.2 (WIDE OPEN) ND - SCHNEIDER IRND 0.9
  14. So I have a de-squeeze question when in resolve. I shot a few test clips 5kHD - Red epic. and I want to de squeeze them in resolve. ( I will set my correction node to timeline and adjust as a whole) Does anyone know what the parameters are that I need to set to get the correct de-squeeze? Is it better to stretch the height (i.e change the height parameter). Or, Stretch the width and then scale down using the zoom parameter? Images attached.
