Cosimo murgolo reacted to Zach Ashcraft in Nikon D810 update does not feature 4K video
Why get so upset over this? Nikon cameras will never be incredibly desirable for video, as you can only use their lenses on that mount. We'll always have more flexibility with Sony and canon. Why not just let a stills camera be a stills camera :)

5D3 H.264 needs decent sharpening in post: still not super detailed, but is workable if using sharp lenses.
5D3 RAW sharpened in Resolve or (even better), ACR, is very solid for 1080p. A sharpened 5D3 RAW shot compares very well to even a 4K GH4 shot projected on a 20' 4K screen (saw this in person).
14-bit 5D3 RAW still looks great compared to the GH4 4K and A7S (examples so far):
Still no direct competition at that price point for 5D3 RAW color, color science and decent 1080p resolution. The workflow and disk space requirements are another story (I'm shooting mostly with the GH4 now).

Cosimo murgolo reacted to Bioskop.Inc in taking lens for 5D using sankor 16D
Yes its an M42 lens.
Get the black one (not the silver) & pay around Â£150.
Also, with M42 lenses sometimes the adaptors allow the lens to go past infinity, so normally you need to turn it back a bit in order to get infinity - this maybe what you're experiencing.

Cosimo murgolo reacted to Rob Bannister in Trump FF58 1.5X Oval Aperture + Iscorama 1.5X = 2X the ovals, 2X the fun?
These are just some random snaps cut together using the DSO Trump FF58 with a 1.5X oval aperture inside, combined with the iscorama 1.5X anamorhic. Simulating the bokeh of a 2X anamorphic..
Anyways I thought some of the shots looked pretty good an wanted to share. Pretty cool being able to shoot this on a D800 and not go to wide like 3.25:1

Cosimo murgolo reacted to nahua in Separate Flow - SLR Magic Anamorphot
Finally finished my short film project "Separate Flow". Waiting for the right anamorphic and I think the SLR Magic Anamorphot was it. Very practical to use on location, it worked really well for this project.
Debated long and hard on using either the GH3 or 5DmkIII RAW. In the end I went with shooting RAW even though I had a lot of problems, including the camera shutting down at one point. But it's the flexibility of RAW in post that won out in the end. In the future I will use AF with the GH3/4 since it's more usable, especially when using a steadicam.

Shot this for fun while on vacation in the Florida Keys. This is the scene right before this woman goes to kill her violent husband.

Would've liked to use my Iscorama but was a little worried about leaving it unattended and in a hot car for days and/or dropping it in the water by accident...
Cosimo murgolo reacted to BenCoughlan in ANAMORPHIC MUSIC VIDEO WITH ISCORAMA (SORT OF)
Thought I would share our latest music video that we shot using Kowa anamorphics (40mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm PL with ALEXA) and which we used an iscorama and BMCC (2.5k) to do a few pick ups with.
Sadly only one of the Iscorama shots made it into the video. Not from lack of quality or it standing out... but just from the story telling side of things we only ending up needing one. I have to say when we were editing, how impressed I was with the combo. It held its own very well against the Alexa and Kowa combo and now plan on shooting more with it.
One thing I have always been conscious about with the iscorama is how it would fair on proper sets. I do often worry that its sometimes hard to tell if things are sharp and the focus is stiff making it hard to use a follow focus. I plan on having mine 'Van Diemen Rehoused' in the next few weeks to make it more onset friendly and then will hopefully get more use out of it.
The iscorama shot is the night time driving just before he enters the bike workshop. Could upload some other shots from the shoot if anyone is interested.

Play nice guys
A need is something you have to have, something you can't do without. A good example is food. If you don't eat, you won't survive for long. Many people have gone days without eating, but they eventually ate a lot of food. You might not need a whole lot of food, but you do need to eat.
A want is something you would like to have. It is not absolutely necessary, but it would be a good thing to have. A good example is music. Now, some people might argue that music is a need because they think they can't do without it. But you don't need music to survive. You do need to eat.
One of the most basic concepts of economics.
I think you all know the answer, so stop arguing over the price, nobody is forcing you to buying it, what is your need?
