  1. Hey all hoping someone has a version 1 Aivascope for sale...need to match some flare shots with my V2's
  2. hey yeah! Still waiting for some gear and the project I am working on with this setup doesn't start production till late March or so. But here's some stills from test footage in the meantime. I am going to be using the Nikkor 50 1.8 and the 85 f2 as taking lenses together with an XL .64 Metabones...also waiting to receive a V1 Aivascope which I will use in some shots for flaring. The V2 does not flare unless you really blast it with something. I ended up with a ProtoDNA thanks to the wonderful advice from JSD and it's awesome. I am just now opening a box with the Titla G2X and Nucleus Nano. Will get her all balanced up and report back with some pics! Planning on mostly using one Pocket4K on sticks, another dedicated to the gimbal for tracking shots.
  3. I'm using a baby scope with 1.75x, works great and you have some room left and right to crop in.
  4. I had the original 1.33X (the big one) and on my Sony A7S (+2) it worked well with pretty much any 50mm I threw it on. I had to close down though to at least f2.8 or f4 to get any workable sharpness. Great adapter for easy of use. I shot mostly with a DSO which is a Helios 44-2 and worked perfectly
  5. Clearing out some stuff I don't use, this is a mint condition Metabones Nikon N/F to Sony E mount Ultra Speedbooster with 1 stop and .71X fov I don't have the container or box, will just be the speedbooster and both end caps with the support piece as shown Prefer local Los Angeles area pick up for $390 so you can see the adapter in person - can ship to US via PP with additional shipping and G&S fee
  6. Oh I didn't know they were available yet...last I read on the site was a Plan B I'll contact through the site thnx for the info! will be nice to have a couple single focusers for various sizes.
  7. Hey all! I just got my V2 Aivascope baby 1.75X lens and really excited to put it through its paces. I know there are some excellent posts recently from JSD about this lens but just wanted to start a dedicated thread for anyone new looking, or if anyone wanted something specifically tested. I'll be mainly using it on a BMPCC4K but will also be using on my A7S2, and possibly my BMPCC. I'm still waiting for my Rapido FVD and presently without diopters so there's not much to test yet but hopefully everything arrives soon - in the meantime will try and collect everything I need to get shooting some sample footage
  8. FS: SLR Magic 1.33X-40 (larger original single focus edition) $400 (cash/PP G&S add 3%) Los Angeles area local pickup preferred so you can check out the lens in person first. Purchased second hand a few weeks ago but don't need anymore. Comes with off brand variable ND, cap screw on rear mount, box. I would rate it as near mint, it looks unused. Single focus system with built in focus gear TIto's review online https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab7KFtUFv8s
  9. Embarrassingly I haven't shot much video on my A7S2 (and recently bought another BM Pocket). A trip to the local fair was a great excuse to film some bokeh with my trusty 2X FF58. I haven't even uploaded any 4K stuff to Vimeo so it was all a great reason to experiment. Used Cine4 with s-gamut3, light grade with Film Convert. I forgot my FF58 focuses past infinity so the out of focus bokeh isn't sharp...but ended up nice anyways. I brought along photo lenses but ended up just taking a bunch of video instead - and wow battery life goes fast in 4K! It's in 4K on Vimeo
