    The new Fujinon cinema lenses

    Only in the E mount, though they eventually plan on releasing them in the X mount- means Fuji is gonna get much more serious about video for their own cameras? http://www.newsshooter.com/2017/02/22/fujinon-announce-new-fast-affordable-zooms-for-e-mount-mk-18-55-t2-9-and-mk-50-135-t2-9/
  2. In the vid I posted they said they were shooting on m43 with a vintage 35mm lens at f2.4. If they can get a usable m43 image at f2 that would be fantastic. I'm not bothered by a little softness. This might be a dumb question, but is it better to use a taking lens where the filter size is at or smaller than 52mm?
  3. No, no, THANK YOU for being so gracious with your time and attempting to answer our questions. That new footage you posted, with the variable diopter, is really nice.
  4. Ian, if your taking lens accepts 52mm filters would the Aivascope just screw right in, no need for step up rings? Also, since you focus via the taking lens shouldn't autofocus work? I know you probably don't use autofocus, but the reason I ask is I'd be interested in using it for photography, not filmmaking. One final question. I know they recommend it for use with sensors no bigger than m43. Any idea how fast of an aperture you can use with m43 before the image is unusable? Wondering if f1.4 or f1.7 would be okay. No problem if you can't answer these questions, still appreciate you starting this thread.
  5. Finally a vid with some bokeh. And this lens is single focus? Nice. Such a tiny lens.

    Panasonic GH5 - all is revealed!

    Notice the smilies. Think he was being sarcastic.

    35NAP 2-3M (mod) – precision, light streaks, bokeh

    This is fantastic looking footage Verbel. Are you using a bellows with this version?

    You guys are so negative. I think he's created something cool that I could not do, which he will probably improve upon. Give him some encouragement, not so much negativity!

    Very clever. Looks good. Dr. Verbel', do you speak Russian?
  10. Today I learnt Mauritius is called Maurice by the French. Beautiful footage.
  11. Too rich for my blood but good luck with your sale Hunter and thanks for the heads up.
  12. I'm surprised they haven't put out a Pocket Mkii. I guess they make a lot more off the other cameras.

    First test of my Kowa 16S (Feedback)

    I love that third vid. Awesome music, awesome dog, great stuff.
  14. If you don't have to focus the adapter, shouldn't the lenses listed as through focus work with autofocus? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13WruS37PBu9MH3RI-AsNClNsaLoS49IvRlLKx0uVuD4/htmlview
  15. Thanks. I was just thinking any lens listed as "Through Focus" on Tito's chart, autofocus should work. But then I figured there must be a reason it doesn't work, cause people are always saying you can't use autofocus with an adapter.

    Special Family Project - Advice on Lenses

    Adorama has the 75mm f1.8 and the 45mm f1.8 in a kit for $899. It includes carrying cases for each lens and lens hoods. They've also got the 20mm f1.7 for $267.99 and it includes a $25 gift card. You could finish up with the 30mm f1.4 for $339 (or $314 if you use the $25 gift card). Those 4 lenses new are only slightly more than the Panasonic 42.5 f1.2 by itself and would give you far more range. However, none of them are stabilized so you wouldn't get to take full advantage of the stabilization. The 42.5mm 1.2 is very nice but is also very expensive. Still, if you want just one lens that has autofocus and image stabilization, and you don't mind spending the money, it would be a good choice. I agree wit jon about primes being the way to go, especially since you said you want nice bokeh.

    SLR Magic 1.33x-40

    They mention it being used with full frame in their B & H listing. "Please note that SLR Magic cautions that for full frame work a 75mm taking lens is required, a 50mm taking lens may only cover when your camera is in APS-C or S35/APS-C sensor mode. When using this adapter on a 25mm , the image will cover a Four Thirds sensor."

    nagual, Tiffen has some very informative vids showing tests with their filters. You might want to consider getting one if you want to cut down on the sharp video look. Also, you might want to look into the Veydra lenses. If it was me, I'd get the 17.5 and 42.5 Voigtlander. But you'll miss out on autofocus and these lenses are much heavier than the Panasonic/Olympus offerings.

    Shane Hurlbut tested the Olympus, Panasonic, and Voigtlander m43 lenses and I think the Voigtlanders were the only ones he really liked and considered "filmic". This is part 2 of his tests where he talks about the Voigtlanders. http://www.thehurlblog.com/cinematography-micro-43-lenses/

    SLR Magic 1.33x-40

    I think you might be right about this looking better on a smaller sensor. I wish they could redesign their gigantic 2x and have one of those similar to this, in terms of size, cause this looks really convenient.

    SLR Magic Anamorphot 2x vs Kowa 16H

    Can you shoot the 16s with your taking lens wide open? What's the minimum focal length for full frame- 85mm?

    First test of my Kowa 16S (Feedback)

    I was looking up footage from the 16s and just came across another of your vids. I like this song choice much more, has a bit of a 70s vibe!

    SLR Magic Anamorphot 2x vs Kowa 16H

    With the exception of the 16H, are all the Kowa 16's basically the same?

    GH5 to much camera for me?

    I'd be worried you're not gonna like going from full frame to m43 and you won't like going from Canon to something else. I'm not all that crazy about "Canon colors" but a lot of Canon users are absolutely miserable when they move to something else. The move to a smaller sensor and the change in colors, it's a constant complaint you see on forums from Canon users. "I don't like what I'm seeing." I would hold onto the 6D and make sure the company you get the GH5 from has a liberal return policy.
  25. For those who have been buying anamorphics for years, just wondering if the price has gone up in recent years and by how much. I was just checking out ebay and it looks like even most of the undesirable lenses tend to be priced at around $200. $600 seems to be the going rate for a possibly decent desirable lens, though I guess you never know till you actually have it and can test it. And the really desirable lenses are in that $1,000+ range. Is this how it was 5 years ago?
