    I decided to try out the Fujinon-TV 25mm 1.4 and 50mm 1.4. They need to be modified, but I shot some rough test footage to see how they look/compare to other c-mount lenses.

    Fujinon-TV 25mm 1.4 (wide open)

    Canon TV-16 25mm 1.4 (wide open)

    Fujinon-TV 50mm 1.4 (wide open)

    Fujinon-TV 50mm 1.4 (wide open)

    Fujinon-TV 50mm 1.4 (f2)

    Cosmicar 50mm 1.9 (wide open)
    The Fujis are very nice, but I'm not sure they're really all that different or better than the Cosmicar and Canon lenses. Not really sure if I'll bother modding them. At least they were dirt cheap.

    Victor Suwatch told me he only shoots in the 3x crop mode in H.264 (and doesn't recommend shooting Raw). But I used the full sensor in H.264 and liked the results. Even without Raw, ML is a godsend for the EOS M.

    Thanks! I don't know about 60p in Raw, I'm not sure I've hard of anyone doing it. It actually crashed a few times when shooting with the bitrate at 3x so I had to drop it to 2.5x (I also tried 2.7x but that crashed too). All you need to install ML is the right Canon firmware 2.0.2 or whatever, and a fully charged battery. This is a good video that walks through how to do it:
    Incidentally, the maker of the video, Ryan Moorman, made some great videos with the EOS M and ML. His videos, as well as the videos of Victor Suwatch, and Johnny Santo Domingo were my initial inspiration to get the EOS M. These are my favorite EOS M videos:

    Thanks. With my Sandisk Extreme Pro 95mbps cards I was getting bitrates into the 90s sometimes.
    These are my EOS M videos. Both have grain added but the original images were very clean. The first video is 3x bitrate and has some grading, but the lobster claw segment is the off the card color, with grain added. The second video was entirely 720p60, with the bitrate between 2.7-3x I believe. The detail/sharpness isn't bad considering it's just 720p, although you can tell the moire is a lot worse.

    Yes, it was all handheld. I just had a rod mounted on top with a pistol grip handle on the side, and my Marshall VLCD50 monitor on top, with the Cosmicar 12.5mm 1.9 c-mount lens. It was pretty well-balanced and comfortable to operate, though the rod mostly blocks the record button, so from now on I'll just use the same Krasnogorsk-3 pistol grip + shoulder stock + generic Manfrotto 501 QR clamp that I use with my bmpcc.

    Looks like the Micro is already going down in price on the second hand market. I got one for under $700. This is my first test, also my first time shooting Raw. Love this little camera. My Micro and Pocket should compliment each other well.

    I modified my Computar 6.5mm 1.8 and shot a video today with the bmpcc. All the exteriors are f/8 and interiors are wide open.

    I shoot B & W a lot. Combining short films, music videos and tests I have about 25 B & W videos on vimeo right now. I'm shooting my next feature in B & W. Here's the most recent short:
    I even used music from one of my all-time favorite films, Night of the Living Dead. This is the second B & W video of my daughter set to music from that movie. Eraserhead is my favorite example of B & W cinematography, and my favorite lighting in any movie as well.

    I used a lens to shoot the video (Canon TV-16 25mm 1.4). Everything is shot wide open.
