  1. Still for sale? Any pictures of the rear element? TX
  2. @Romano. The last glass elements are cemented for eternity inside the metal housing. I asked VD for polishing them but they can't … There are even lens elements glued together with organic glue which lets fungus grow. The separation in the picture looks like this glue …
  3. Sounded promising. But it seems to be more complicated. I learned that adding a shape to the rear part of the Isco means adding a front iris to the taking lens. Yes, it reduces the veiling glare/white vignetting but also adds a new shape to the bokeh! The white vignetting appears most when you open the iris to maximum. It is produced by the edge of the Iscos's front lens element (i guess it's the second) and therefore just visible on the widest taking lenses only. If the ring/shape or whatever you add to the Isco's rear part is smaller than the taking lens iris itself the shap
  4. I found out that using the 1080i (HDMI Rec Output) mode for external monitoring the delay/lag is almost invisible compared to the 1080p mode (5frames delay on a smallHD 502B). BUT - If you switch from 25p to HFR (75-100fps) and have a HDMI monitor attached - the cam freezes after 5sec recording. I tried the same setting with a brand new cam in a shop and the bug is the same. So sadly no monitoring without delay when using HFR mode. Hope Panasonic can fix it!
  5. Oh no. It is a DJI. And the breakout boxes are from Wooden Camera and Tilta. And the wireless video is from IDX. A little stick powered by the usb port of the SHD502 Bright.
  6. Long story short. Stay with the original ISCO if you plan to do a simple V1 modification. The close focus distance is the same as if you mod it by yourself. The additional weight is a problem if you gonna try to screw it in front of a plastic Nikon pancake. You shouldn't trust that tiny lens to hold a heavy lens like the V1 will be. So you will need a lens support. The V1 does not vignette more than with the original design within the SAME focus range. The distances are the same. But if the front stays 72mm it will vignette at the new and closer close focus, because of the small front
  7. Leica Angenieux 45-90mm, 2.8 is an option too.
  8. Thanks Hans! On my Isco 36 SC (not the pre 36) the veiling glare is very prominent. So my guess is, that this flare is produced by the edge of the second element. I think it it worth a try to find the causing element. At an ISCO it it definitely a job for a pro.
  9. ISCO 36. Not yet. But I will. I guess the flare producing lens is the second element. I'll send it to Van Diemen to find it out. Thank you guys for that info!!!!
  10. Nice topic. This one i did with a modified Isco 36 (now cine Iscorama mkII). I used different taking lenses (voigtlaender 40mm 2.0, Nikon 50mm 1.8, 58mm Helios and i think there was a 80mm Nikkor as well) I used the Gh5 on a Letus gimbal in 4:3 full sensor mode. So the final frame was a 2:1 ratio in 4K. Which gave me a lot of freedom for reframing.
  11. Music promotion for the german band: CORTEZ Made with Sony A7SM2, Leica Summicron (35, 50, 90) and the mighty Van Diemen Cine Iscorama M2. Enjoy!!
  12. All the same. 135mm, on 2x crop at 120fps. No resizing. All captured at 1080p.
