  1. BMMCC (ProRes LT), Sankor 16c, VidAtlantic Clamp, Cosmicar 25mm f/1.9 c-mount lens, Tiffen +1, +2, +4 diopters, Tiffen +1/2 Split Diopter, Firecrest IRND I really love this camera/lens combination, and I'm happy to be shooting anamorphic again after selling my previous lenses 6 years ago. The BMMCC's Super 16 sensor goes well with anamorphic because you can still get a shallow enough DOF, but deep enough wide open to be usable/practical. You get sharp, low light anamorphic that's actually in focus (this whole video was shot wide open at f/1.9. I can get similarly sharp/usable results at f/1.4 with my Canon TV-16 25mm, which is why I need to fix it).
  2. Anyone know of a good adhesive for repairing a lens? The front filter thread/hood part of my Canon TV-16 25mm is slightly loose (and can be easily unscrewed). This wouldn't really bother me if I were using the lens as is, but I want to use it as a taking lens for Anamorphic, and a slight focus turn skews it out of alignment. Anyone have any experience repairing lenses who can recommend an adhesive that's safe to use with a lens?
  3. So I read back in October that the BMPCC 4k added at 2.6k crop mode that "suitable for Super 16mm lenses" according to cinema5D. Has anyone used this? Is it a proper s16 crop or something fairly close? With a tax return coming, I'm thinking of upgrading from the BMMCC, which I'm using with my beloved vintage c-mount lenses, and I don't want to buy more lenses to cover the full sensor). I'm curious to hear from anyone who has had both the Micro and P4K. I'm thinking of going for the P4K for the low light and higher res (2.6K also seems optimal for going higher res but not as high as 4K, to save card/drive space and possibly use the same cards from the Micro. I've seen people online able to get 12:1 raw on the 95mbps Extreme Pros). The Micro has a wonderful image most of the time, but some things that bother me about it.
  4. I have a Rokinon 12mm f/2 MFT Lens (non-cine version) Clean, barely used, includes original caps. No lens hood. $200 + shipping within the U.S. only
  5. This is an interesting interview about fair use with the creators of Nirvanna the Band the Show (which is hilarious and everyone should watch it).
  6. So a couple years ago I posted a couple of videos I shot with the Canon TV-16 25mm 1.4 c-mount lens and the BMPCC. I loved the lens, but had to sell it (and some other gear) for financial reasons. I didn't want to sell it, but since I had a full set of Fujinon-TV lenses and only one Canon, and there seemed to be few Canon TV-16 lenses on ebay, I ended up selling it. I'm working full time again and more financially stable so I decided to try and track down the Canon TV-16 lenses. I set up an alert with eBay, not expecting anything, but just hoping. As luck would have it, some lenses popped up. The 25mm 1.4, like the one I had before. I looked at the listing and thought "wait a minute, this one has a follow focus gear attached to it like what I had done to mine. Wait, the seller's username is familiar. Holy shit, this IS my old lens." So I made an offer and won He was also selling the 13mm 1.5 for a fair price. And there were a couple 50mm 1.8 lenses available from other sellers. So, I not only put together a set very quickly, I got my old lens back. I shot some BTS (with the BMMCC) for a friend's short film recently, using the lenses. The first two shots are the 50mm, last two are 25mm, everything in between is the 13mm. Mostly shot at f/2.8-4. The 13mm and 50mm flare like crazy, but I like it. These definitely have a ton of character and are probably my favorite vintage c-mount primes now.
  7. Thanks. I had to open up the project file because it's been so long I forgot what I did. Looks like all it was was the free Ground Control BMDFilm-709 lut in the Basic tab of Lumetri, plus the Fuji Reala 500D/Kodak 2393 in the Creative tab...and that was it. Plus Gorilla Grain 35mm Medium Grain overlay. I can't find the Super 8 project file, but I think it was the same grading but with a little blue added to the shadows and highlights, plus I believe Gaussian Blur to soften, and the "Hand Processed Super 8" grain overlay by Dissolve (free). And there are also Super 8 film burns by Austin Newman (also free).
  8. I shot and edited this back in November 2018, but didn't feel like sharing it. Looking back months later, I actually like the grade I did, so here you go: And here's some of this footage with a Super 8 look:
  9. You might be able to get a good deal on the 'bay if you're a little patient. I just won an auction on the Micro WITH an Olympus 17mm 1.8 bundled for $555, and I immediately resold the lens for $250 and used that to put together a solid rig (Smallrig cage/monitor mount, wooden rosette handle, NP-F bridge with NP-F batteries) that makes it very functional and usable. It's like a little baby Red camera now.
  10. My Feelworld 5.7" "4K" monitor can do both horizontal and vertical flip. Edit: this is the one I have: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1367937-REG/feelworld_fwf570_f570_5_7_4k_hdmi.html
  11. Well then I guess you better set up those tracks and do it for real. If it's really important, then it's worth doing right.
  12. I guess a slider for short moves, for longer tracking, maybe a gimbal + someone pulling the camera operator in a wheel chair? A wheel chair was my poor man's dolly back in the day.
  13. I re-bought the Fujinon-TV 12.5mm to go with my 25 and 50 and did this quick and dirty test. Wide shots are unusable at f/1.4 but good by f/2.8, even better at f/4. Close-ups look pretty good at f/2 since the slight softness is more flattering to skin and the edge softness isn't as noticeable to due to the face being closer to center and the most in-focus in the frame.
