  1. I was using the Takumar 200mm f5.6 and Canon nFD 200mm f4. In general tuning of infinity focus is going to be much more important than on a shorter taking lens, that goes for both scope and lens. I hook up a 5inch monitor, punch in as far as I can and focus on something as far away as possible, wiggle it around until it's all as sharp as you can get. Some scopes work better with longer lenses, but I think you should be able to get okay results with almost any combo tuned well at around f8-f11. That might sound crappy, but a 200mm anamorphic stopped down to f8 still looks really good. I've tune
  2. They could even build in pieces to help make modularity easier, like space where you screw in a bracket for 15mm rods and attach a 5-7inch screen if needed. You could easily make a form factor that could be built upon when needed. I guess similar to all these new cube cameras we are seeing (zcam etc), but tweaked a bit.
  3. I still own one of these - Am I crazy to want something similar to this with a mirrorless mount? I love the ease of use and built in evf, also little flippy screen if needed. Perhaps even in somewhat of a cube format would be fine. For run and gun with ibis and a small prime lens this would be so much fun.
  4. Yeah, you kinda blew that .
  5. This is 99% of camera reviews on YT.
  6. You joke but bring up legit issues with so many projects haha.
  7. That shit also drives me nuts.
  8. I had that computer as well, I think it was my longest serving mac. I also purchased the camera top left last year haha.
  9. Needs and wants are totally different things, for example; you need a camera to make a film, you don't necessarily need IBIS to make a film (although it can be a great tool for certain situations).
  10. Same with me, went from GH5 to Zcam, no IBIS, I felt my work looked better without. IBIS is like that little thing you think you need when you first get it but really you don't.
  11. I've had 8 Kowa-8s (also 8Bs in there). Sample variance is huge. Flares can be all different colours, sometimes matching front to back, sometimes not. Some are much sharper than others even when tuned (normal with all scopes). I kept these in the shadow a long time, but when I first stumbled on one I couldn't find even one picture of one on the internet, or even a single word that they existed, it felt like digging up treasure. I've made some videos with them, but prefer the isco 8s too be totally honest (although how wide a kowa8 can go if you know the right taking lens is pretty amazing
  12. Thank you @Andrew Reid. I'm starting to think Camera Conspiracies YouTube isn't as satirical as I first thought...
  13. New Jinni.Tech video up on Youtube...
  14. These characteristics you like are not from un-coated elements. Removing the coatings is far more likely to ruin the image (and lens), rather than achieve something nice.
  15. I don't really use AF, Noise is a non-issue for me and I don't need IBIS (I can understand how some people think these are important though). E2 is 10bit. Yes, E2 can operate for hours, even in my waterhousing shooting 120fps 4K and it never overheats. The housing is quite hot afterwards, I wonder how the canon would fair? (For the record my GH5 which basically never overheated very often would occasionally overheat in my water housing). I get how people want a DSLR that does this stuff (I want one that can do this stuff as well!), but I think it's kinda silly to look past the Z
  16. I'm most surprised anyone watches these people. What's the demographic do you think?
  17. Tinkering with lenses and hacking together stuff is what makes anamorphic fun to me, I think some people totally miss the point of why many of us do it.
  18. Correct. Thank you, I was trying to remember what it's called, it's hard to find in search.
  19. https://zcamuser.com If everyone used something like this it would help. The issue is people seem to to be convinced FB groups are good for stuff like this.
  20. It's probably been one of the most asked questions. They haven't dodged any questions about it, they have been open. Answers: Braw unlikely due to brands being very competitive, also the way in which Braw needs to be implemented. Support for ProResRaw is about to be released. Support for Zraw in Resolve is in BM's hands, if you want it you can help by sending BM an email and requesting support like many users have been doing.
