  1. https://www.metabones.com/products/details/MB_SPEF-EFM-BT1 Metabones announced a new Speed Booster (EF to EF-M mount). Metabones EF-EOS M Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x is available right now for $479. Press release: Metabones® Introduces EF to EOS M (EF-EFM Mount) Speed Booster® ULTRA 0.71x Vancouver, Canada, May 2, 2019 – Metabones introduces the latest member of its award-winning Speed Booster family of DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) to mirrorless lens mount adapters, EF-EOS M Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x. Full-frame Canon EF-mount lenses are now one stop faster, 0.71x wider and with increased MFT (note 1) on Canon EOS M cameras. The 4k/UHD video crop on EOS M50 can also be mitigated with third-party APS-C lenses using this Metabones Speed Booster. Some Canon EF-S lenses may be modified to fit on the Speed Booster but Metabones cannot be held liable for any issues arising from modifications. Using APS-C lenses with Speed Booster for still photography or full HD videography may result in vignetting. Ever since the first Speed Booster was introduced, there have been DIY attempts to modify it to fit EOS M cameras. The turnkey solution Metabones now offers adds a number of refinements: The optical housing is redesigned for a perfect fit on EOS M. The EXIF metadata is changed to reflect the faster aperture (note 2) and shorter focal length. The autofocus speed of the lens is adjusted and optimized for the change in focal length and aperture to ensure the best performance. This is especially important for dual-pixel autofocus (DPAF) in video mode. A ‘chip’ mode is added so that the user may store the metadata of a fully mechanical manual lens in the adapter. A LED indicates the operational status of the Speed Booster. Since both the lens and the camera speak the same protocol most features are supported with the exception of lens aberration correction, which is automatically turned off. Speed Booster ULTRA Speed Booster ULTRA uses an advanced 5-element/4-group optical design by Caldwell Photographic Inc., incorporating ultra-high index tantalum-based optical glass to achieve extraordinary optical performance with improved corner sharpness, distortion and reduced vignetting. Speed Booster ULTRA has a magnification of 0.71x, effectively reducing the crop factor of APS-C cameras from 1.5x to 1.07x. The Speed Booster ULTRA design makes very effective use of exotic materials at the furthest limit of glassmaking technology, and as a result, is well corrected for use with virtually all full-frame SLR lenses regardless of exit pupil distance. Thus, the Speed Booster ULTRA performs extremely well with professional-grade f/2.8 zoom lenses such as the 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms by Canon to produce 17-50mm f/2.0 and 50-142mm f/2.0 high-speed zooms, respectively. Similarly, high-speed fixed focal length lenses such as a 50mm f/1.2 will be transformed into a 35.5mm f/0.9 lens with excellent contrast and resolution from the center all the way to the edges of the image. Availability Metabones EF-EOS M Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x is available right now for USD 479.00 plus applicable taxes, duties, and shipping, from Metabones’ web store and its worldwide network of resellers. Note 1: compared to the same lens on the same camera with an ordinary lens mount adapter without optics. Note 2: to ensure compatibility with hardware and software, which do not always handle sub-1.0 apertures properly, f/1.2 lenses will display their pre-boost aperture. Please rest assured that the display has no impact on the actual maximum aperture and a maximum output of f/0.9 is supported.

  2. I think we can't tell much about lens and body balance until we use one.
  3. No one appreciates the art of recycling. Everyone just wants the brand new. This planet has finite resources. Not only that but most of the rare ore (coltan and other rare metals) are dug by little African children. Even Andrew can recycle is own 6d articles and save some hard disk. https://www.eoshd.com/2017/06/canon-6d-mark-ii-codec-worse-old-6d-lower-bitrate-no/ PS: There is some irony here. Because Canon doesn't give a shit about who dugs their coltan, but none the less aren't we a bit spoiled?
  4. Canon will respond to this with their new Canon MJPEG RAW!
  5. Hmmm. I think there is a big a big difference in form from diamantino to children of men, and I don't compare them on their purpose, I just think it's a relief to see other structures, forms and approaches. Zoolander ?? Really?! I didn't saw Zoolander so I can't say you are wrong.
  6. I agree. I think that in the realm of Hollywood they are exquisite, we could also add PTA and others to the list. Note that I said Hollywood produces great films and directors. But take for example Tarkovsky, Bergmann, Pasolini, Bela Tar and others. It's another gesture towards cinema, that in my opinion is, to some extent, more courageous and poetic in the sense of exploring the possibilities of cinema not just as a medium to convey a narrative.
  7. "I didn't saw Roma" and I can't tell much by the trailer but it certainly doesn't look like one more marvel movie. I understand your division between bad Hollywood and good Hollywood, but it's still Hollywood and it's still mainstream and profoundly ideological. Três amigos operate in Hollywood, money comes from Hollywood and the films they produce follow Hollywood classic models of storytelling. Yes, they are more inventive, than most of the other crap Hollywood produces, but I wouldn't call it disruptive, they don't add much to the medium itself. It's all a bit primary and basic, it lacks courage and poetry. The ideas are repetitive, and always placing the spectator in a passive point of view, pleasing the spectator, because they have to sell. And it's alright as long as there is a place for the other side. For the one who is not looking to please you, the ones that don't want your emotional investment, who are willing to make you think instead of just convincing you. Having said that Hollywood it's a big industry and produces great movies and directors. I agree with you that Cannes is an amusement park full of directors and producers looking for distributors and vice versa, most festivals are. And competition in cinema is something I can't really understand and find it profoundly perverse. But I think that Cannes was far more interesting this year than last year when it comes to new directors and showing very different movies from what is usually shown. and again it wasn't a Cannes decision but a matter of law. Actually, Cannes was trying everything to have Netflix movies at the festival. There were at least Lars Von Trier movie and Spike Lee English spoken movies. But there were great movies far more inventive than any movie I've ever seen from Cuaron, Inarritu or Del Toro. Did you saw Diamantino that won la semaine de la critique or Chuva é cantoria na aldeia dos mortos or Lazzarro felice or Dogman or Ayka or Une affair de famille? All great, and with a different idea from what cinema can be or should be. I think it's at least refreshing to see these movies in a big festival. Hollywood tends to see cinema just as a medium to tell a story, but cinema can be much more than just this. That's right! It's all about the money. But if you had the possibility wouldn't you prefer to go to a movie theater?
  8. It's a bit more complex than that. Cannes didn't ban Netflix. There is a law in France that forbids any festival that takes place in France to exhibit a film in a festival that after doesn't have an agreement of release in movie theaters in France. It's simply obligatory. I partially agree that movies are to be seen in a cinema theater, but that's another conversation. Now, in fact, there was something rather good and refreshing about Cannes banning Netflix films because it gave room to other young directors. Who otherwise wouldn't have the possibility to be in. Don't get me wrong I think these platforms are great, but I don't see why isn't possible to have bought. A release in a cinema theater and then after a while in Netflix. I think most directors would agree that they would like there work to be seen in a cinema theater. I think Netflix is being a bit greedy, wanting all the profits just for them. And if you think about it might lead to a monopoly, that might have bad consequences for the art itself. And correct me if i'm wrong but aren't Cuaron, Inarritu and Del Toro Hollywood directors? I think Cuaron only did y tu mamma tambien outside of hollywood, didn't he?
  9. https://www.engadget.com/2018/09/05/canon-eos-r-full-frame-mirrorless-camera/?guccounter=1 I read it here
  10. It shoots 4K at 30 fps, but as with the 5D Mark IV, there's a considerable 1.7 times crop factor. the EOS R does have 4:2:2 10-bit video output externally via the HDMI port (internally, it's 8-bit). That will give serious video shooters more latitude for color correction. It also has 3.5mm microphone and headphone jacks.
