  1. Well, I'd be careful is they're using that image as the selling point. It looked familiar to me and that's because it has been around a while. Vintage lenses for Video uses it for one of their early (and very good) posts. You can find it here. https://www.vintagelensesforvideo.com/4-lenses-with-amazing-lens-flare/
  2. Is it just me? But I can't seem to find my copy. I bought Andrew's guide to vintage lenses quite a few years back. In my opinion it was the best guide in this space that I'd seen. Is it not for sale anymore? Or am I just not looking in the right place? In any case, it should be on sale, and an updated version would be well received! Or are we all over vintage lenses?
  3. See, I knew this would happen. About a month ago I bought an Osmo Pocket, which I'm really happy with, but now this comes along. I obviously wasn't paying attention to the rumour sites. Sigh ... I'll just stick with my first generation purchase.
  4. Yes, I agree. A little more BTS stuff would be nice. It started of well but seemed to taper off. Don't mind some of the shorts he's producing, but a glimpse into the process would add to it.
  5. Yep, I've said it elsewhere in these forums, but I love my battered GH3. I shoot with a GH5 mostly now (and a GX85), but always keep the GH3 close. And yeah, there is something really appealing about its black and white.
  6. Panasonic GH3. More than good enough. I use a GH5 now for work, but I still can't bring myself to sell the GH3 (not that anyone would buy it). Great HD, battery life still solid, built like a tank. Paired with my Voigtlander 25mm (itself battered and scratched to shit) it has a special voodoo.
  7. Yeah, this is a good set up, but it's much better with a Metabones Speedbooster.
  8. corporate / education / some narrative My dream is to keep it all in one backpack. (It never works out that way, but I see no reason why it shouldn't) So ... (gear I have) GH5, Voigtlander 25mm, Lumix 15mm, Lumix Nocticron 42.5. Zoom F4, rode NTG 3 (and cable and pole stuff) Any small, semi-decent tripod.
  9. I've already posted Alex Proyas' Youtube channel in the Youtube channel thread, but I reckon this latest development deserves its own shout out. Will be very interesting to watch this unfold. It also seems apparent he's going to be talking a lot about cameras, Blackmagic in particular.
  10. Slightly more extreme but can deliver interesting results (not in low light of course) is the SL:R Magic 8mm. It's dirt cheap at B & H.
  11. Yes, my new F4 arrived today. I know it's been out a while but it still feels like a good option. For years now I've been using a Tascam DR60D. The damn thing has been worked to death and it has never let me down. I do feel a bit guilty upgrading. But still the F4 is like a Porshe coming out of the box compared to the Tascam. In any case, I always feel happier investing in sound gear for some reason.
  12. Yep, like Mattias said, dog lovers and dogs rescuers. Research them. Send all the CEO's of those organisations a press release/free screener. Get them involved. You're in a niche area, so use that to your advantage. I don't mind your trailer. These guys did a great job in a (not so now) niche area.
  13. No matter how old ... genius. I know the dynamic range is bad, and the green screen awful. Hell, the framing is all over the shop. But for me, the most disturbing thing is that witch in the background. That's seriously freaky shit.
  14. Look, we can talk cameras and video as much as we like. But these guys, well ... I think there's something in this for all of us. God I hope they enter the $200 challenge.

    my first short

    I also really like the "dark" shots (like 1.44). We're always talking about dynamic range, and IQ etc etc, but sometimes it's all in the shadows. In the murky bits. Makes you look harder. Good stuff.
