  1. Sorry my mistake, Kowa bunga just came out as I was playing with the movie words(couldn't resist;)  I couldnt be sure which anamurphics you had but  I knew there might be some issues, assume its not a problem, maybe you where already planning to get a Cinilux or have one, at least it looks good on the camera, have you got a cinilux or blue star yet? assume the price is rising, but it will fit some others. I really wish the anamorphics could be used with a 35mm on a 1.6x or 50mm on FF, or a 35 on a FF even better, but maybe thats just an expensive dream.


    Don't forget the Moller Kristof

  2. @Anti12  Interesting video Anti, the bokeh is interesting and kinda what i've been looking to see, not seen so much in the other video, is that pointed oval the result of an oval aperture in the taking lens, no its a nikon 35mm which is interesting as i've wanted to see 35mm lens used with it, not sure what crop factor you have there with it though. Or is the eye shaped oval from the unit, it looks clean but the points on the oval could also explain what I seem to be seeing in other day time stuff, the image seems to be fished, with some weird blur in parts, but aside from that it looks clean enough.


    @HoffleHash'er    Did you have any Hassle fitting your Kawa Bunga anamorphic in there, what Kit lens will you use it with, I presume your planning an Anamorphic

  3. I believe there has been a slight misunderstanding, JohnVid. I never implied you were trolling. Quite the opposite. What I said about your previous comment was that it "more or less sums up the whole topic."

    In other words, I agreed with you.  ;)


    The rest of the comment wasn't about you, it was about the opening post of this thread. 

    Yeah I caught that aswell, sometimes I like to make a point a short as possible, other times I ramble, I also don't mind teaching, there is actually good business to be had from teaching, sometimes we give it away but the better way is to try to start charging for some lessons, what they say those that can do, the rest teach :) Remember it's not always about what you know, but who..

  4. Hey Quirky, I wasn't being a troll, I was talking about myself, I stopped looking for Clients a long time ago (though I wish I had a few, but would know how to go about getting them), and just started designing things for myself, I wasted a lot of time with the wrong people, and have spent numerous years honing the skills, though the problem with trying to be a perfectionist with all skills is cutting off & letting go of details no one will even notice. Jack of all trades master of none? I can't be sure, I have a lot of skills in many areas, but am I doing anything really ground breaking? I see more flaws in everything I do than other people would notice, except maybe people who make stuff, but its a personal journey, no one knows the limitations you had when making a particular piece, we all know what we would do to improve thing, or what we would like to introduce next time, I've yet to use a 35mm camera for anything serious, I believe I need a little more gear to iron out some issues, but at some point I will also need to involve others, as I cant make some things without some subjects(people). Do I really want to be good at the biz, I'm not so sure I do, would like to earn some decent cash, to put other ideas into action & have a better range of projects, hopefully one day things will snowball, but at the moment I mostly give everythng away, be that photo's, music, video's or  ideas, getting paid for stuff seems to be the hard part.

  5. 2 C shaped felt lined shims (or split ring) to go round the anamorphic, would be better to clamp the anamorphic and then the screws could screw into them, rather than scratching the gold ana' but it would also benefit from some sort of bayonet to attach the rest to.

  6. Looking forward to it, Which anamorphic will you use with it? (More Cinilux & more Moller plz) Wondering how much spare room will be in there, if the 3 locating screws actually go into holes, to avoid scratching, as I thought the idea of the housing was to hide the anamorphic

    Wondering if the shipping unit has the same glass as the test unit, onow the minimum focus has changed. Wondering how easy/quick to focus.

    Which camera & taking lens do you hope to use it with, FF or APS-C?

  7. So does the 3 screw clamp hold the anamorphic or the FM unit? I know its in the video, but cant remember, I thought it locked into it somehow?

    half way up the body would be best place, would it not.

  8. The price cant always gravitate to what the people want if you hav to rely on outside suppliers to machine your parts, shipping costs for said parts assembly etc. it's difficult to get right, Red Scarlet's price point was 3k...it never happened, but others are now making decent alternatives for under 3k but how long do you have to wait it out. I waited 3yrs for that and a few years have passed since, but hey finally some options are available.

  9. this might be of use https://obsproject.com/ should be interesting to see how long it takes to get to version1, there are some realtime hdmi to usb3 adapters/encoders out there on ebay. or something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Elgato-Turbo-264-HD-H-264-Video-Encoder-Accelerator-USB-Video-Converter-for-Mac-/281506829220?pt=UK_Computing_Computer_Components_Graphics_Video_TV_Cards_TW&hash=item418b1d53a4



    though perhaps something to replace mpeg4 is on the horizon, due to the fact mpeg4 isnt an open format.

  10. is it hard to understand why?

    have you had a meaningful convo with the guy that makes the FM?

    he seems to pick & choose who he speaks with to,

    not getting involved in a thread promoting his lens seems crazy to me

    I'm still waiting to see a few more tests from both providers, though the size of the other is off-putting

    would like to see a moller with 50mm olympus 1.8

    to keep overall weight & size down or some other small 35mm lens with better quality than the olympus,

    but based on what I've seen I have no doubts the smaller blue unit will be more usefull and easier to carry in your pocket,

    something that some people may consider paying a premium for, but not too much more.

    reduced costs on materials of the body may mean more money spent on the glass?

    but for me, I'm not so sure if I really want the anamorphic look all the time,

    I dont mind the flares but that can be done in post, the oval bokeh looks wrong to me sometimes

    500 + the cost of an anamorphic could buy me a few other lenses without the hassle of anamorphics,

    I certainly cant afford multiple adapters to cover different focal lengths, and additional lenses.
