  1. The SmallRig HDMI cable is pretty small and flexible. It's not angled but also doesn't stick out far.
  2. I'm rebuilding my kit and just got the Feelworld Lut7 7" monitor mainly for the price/brightness ratio (2200 nits/$269) and it's good but it's way too big and heavy for me, even without the f970 batteries. So I'm going to return it. I'm looking for a 5" (ish) monitor that's bright enough to be visible in daylight without horrible reflections, that runs on f970 batteries but won't drain them in a short time, for the $300 range. I've read good things about the Atomos Shinobi so I'm leaning toward that. The Portkeys BM5 is intriguing but maybe a bit too expensive. I thought I'd toss it to you guy
  3. I know a couple of guys who bought brand new Red cameras, cine lenses, and gimbals but didn't own lights, or had one or two of those $50 Neewer LED panels you can buy in pairs on Amazon.
  4. After dipping into LED lights with my Godox SL60W a couple years ago, last year I decided to go all LED. I have 2 more SL60W lights, a Falcon Eyes F7, an Aputure MC (my first Aputure light and basically a mini Falcon Eyes F7) and Lume Cube 2.0 (a decent little kicker light). I might also get the Godox S30 and LC500R.
  5. I was excited for the Media Devision video and watched it in full the other day. A few months ago I finally put together a new FD lens set that I converted to EF mount and de-clicked: 20mm 2.8, 24mm 2.8, 35mm 2, 50mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.8. I also have the 35-105mm 3.5 and 80-200mm 4 zooms but I haven't converted them. And I have a really shitty copy of the 24mm 2 that maybe I'll get repaired if it's not crazy expensive. The nFD lenses have been my favorite lenses for a long time, so I'm satisfied with the little kit I have, even if it is the "budget" option vs "Luxury" option. They're still sharp
  6. Wow, I feel really stupid for selling my BMMCC for a GH5. It's fine, but it just wasn't really doing it for me. I returned it, but now the used prices on the Micro and the original BMPCC on ebay seem to have gone up stupid high. The last BMMCC I had I got for $555 and it included an Olympus 17mm 1.8 that I sold, within minutes of listing on ebay, for like $250. I want my old camera back.
  7. Can anyone who's owned the BMPCC original and/or BMMCC compare those to the 1080p from the P4K? I want the slightly soft but finely detailed, sharp but not too sharp, rich, nice color and skin tone look of the BMPCC/BMMCC but with the more convenient body and features of the P4K (big touch screen, better low light, bigger sensor, 120fps, the ability to bake in a lut in prores). I've seen a convincing side by side video where the P4K was made to match the original BMPCC, but I honestly kinda suck at that sort of thing, plus I hate the added time and work in post so I want to try and achieve the
  8. I'm getting the GH5. I just want something less fussy that I can use with minimal-to-no rigging/grading. And I like the idea of the Open Gate mode and the 4k Tele Crop that gives you a s16 image area so I can still use my c-mount lenses. Plus the high frame rate options. Although I'm keeping my FD lenses (I'm also getting the Mitakon focal reducer) and converting my 85mm f/1.8 and 24mm f/2.8 to EF mount to finish off the set.
  9. If anyone wants to try this camera out, I'm selling mine. I made a post in the "Gear For Sale" section.
  10. I'm clearing out a bunch of gear to make way for more gear, because I have a problem. BMMCC + SmallRig Cage/HDMI Clamp + Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB card (this is an older one that is compatible) + Wasabi LP-E6 battery + Lanparte LP-E6 DC Coupler (dummy battery), Tilta NP-F Battery Sled, DC cable. Everything is in great condition with a bit of cosmetic wear. $600 Metabones BMPCC .58x Speed Booster Canon EF Mount (compatible with BMMCC and BMPCC Original/Super 16 sensors only) - Glass is clean and clear $350 Can
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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).
  16. 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.
  17. 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 Newma
  18. 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:
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
