  1. Hi, can you share the method to change the dcp profile to another camera ? I'd love to make one for my X-T1
  2. Can you post some pictures shot with it ? I don't have this lens, as it is quite rare, but I do love my MD 135/2.8, would love to see a comparison. Is it sharp @f/2 ? The rokkorfiles test shows it not being that sharp, but is it sharp enough for video wide open ? Should be great on a full frame (Sony E-mount ?)
  3. Are you using J-Log or cine gamma for your documentaries ?
  4. You just cant, MD flange distance is 43.5mm, which makes it 0.5mm smaller than Canon MD mount. You can push as hard as you want, you just can't fit a thing in -0.5mm :D
  5. Don't do that, trust me, I did not find any acceptable options for monting MD lenses on an EOS mount, and I've tried many things (slims adapters, adapters with optics) Conversion should be an option, but the people making lens conversions are not interested in "lower" lenses than the mighty 50/1.2 & 85/1.2 :s The "best" adapter is this one (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thin-Minolta-MD-Lens-to-Canon-EOS-serial-Camera-Adapter-without-glasses-MD-EOS-/111751120312) but you are still missing around 1mm flange distance -> Infinity focus is not an option wide open
  6. I am going to revive this topic, but this camera ticks many box. The only thing missing is 10 bit output IMO. @Mattias Burling did you get a chance to shoot more since your first review ? Any updates on your review ? I don't see many used LS300 for sale yet, but I don't know how many were sold.
  7. I am frequently using an MD -> MFT lens turbo II. When I want to use M42 lenses, I just stack an M42 -> MD adapter on the MD->MT Lens Turbo, no problems here
  8. In france we call that an After-movie but that is quite a bad way of defining an after-party movie IMO as it's not much of a movie, but more like a short report. (Or maybe I didn't get your exact question, as I am not a native english speaker myself)
  9. According to this : http://www.digitalbolex.com/help-desk/backup/raw/ white balance can be set in post. (As you would expect with raw dng files)
  10. Just FYI, I read that ML raw files are actually recorder in 14bits but encapsulated in a 16bit dng file when processed, but that doesn't change them of course The lumetri panel is not a good example, it is far from the best tool to process raw footage. Process your RAW footage (compressed or uncompressed) in ACR (via After Effects) and you'll be able to change WB accurately. C) Digital Bolex ?
  11. Good to see some digital Bolex goodness for sale ! I don't have the cash right now, but i'd love to get one. Good luck for your sale
  12. I hope they have people to post-process the footage as I don't imagine shooting raw for vlogging or any quick shoot-to-export projects. I'm very happy with H264 for this use !
  13. I don't live that far away (Le Mans) and often go in Paris, so you may ask for your favour
  14. Great, thank you for sharing Last time I checked (17/11 nightly build) the 10 & 12 bit recording weren't working on the 50D but i'll try again as soon as there is another build.
  15. Great, thank you for these usefull pieces of information
  16. That is exactly true in my case too.
  17. I'm pretty sure that you need at least two elements to make a variable diopter (The FM and Rectilux can be sharp at wider apertures than f/4 btw -> have a look at @Tito Ferradans's test http://www.tferradans.com/blog/?p=9238 of the FM module)
  18. 1. full M @ 180° and NDs (but if I don't have enough light, I might shoot at 270° for the half stop of light ! (I don't have low light friendly cameras))
  19. You'll have to restric even more, as many many lenses fit your criterias :D http://allphotolenses.com/lenses/c_342063/p_1.html I can recommend the M42 Fujinon 50/1.8 if you don't want any flares. You can go the obvious route of using an Helios-44 if you like flares. Anything in between should be good too (Super Takumars, Mamiyas, Yashikas, Zeiss', you name it !) If you want reduced vertical "hazing", I guess a lens with a smaller front element and closer to the variable diopter of the FM is required, but I do not have experience with that)
  20. I would recommend this but be aware that many zooms from this era does have a rotating front element which are not usable with anamorphics (It seems to exist 2 different version of the pentax zoom, one with and one without the rotating front filter). Might sound obvious, but just in case you haven't thought of that. (I know I did not :o ) As for the fixed length, I don't mind my anamorphic sliding on the support, but it's a good idea to find a fixed lens one (And I guess you'll vignette from 35 to 40mm, but I'm not sure)
  21. Just did a stretch factor measurement as shown by @Tito Ferradans in his video about the Kowa B&H mods. Isco Ultrastar @ infinity (measured with a +1 diopter) : 1.99x stretch -> 2.0x Isco Ultrastar @ 1.5m (measured without diopters) : 1.82x stretch -> 1.8x What got me to measure it is Eddie (from Vid-Atlantic, from which I bought my new clamps), who is advertising the isco ultrastars on sale on vid-atlantic's website being advertised as 1.9x stretch anamorphic. I wanted to test that I'm wondering if I should just unsqueeze everything @1.9x for simplicity or match the stretch factor for each shot (to this date, I always used the 2x stretch factor for ease of use with after effects)
  22. Ooo nice to know, I never used procamp, as I do like the all in one interface of lumetri, but I'll check on my next project, thx
  23. It is quite overexposed, but information is still here. You can process the footage in ACR through After Effects and import it back to Premiere (or dynamic link). In premiere importing the dng directly, using lumetri, here is what I have using default sequence settings : However, if you tick "Maximum Bit depth" on the sequence settings, you are now able to recover some of the highlights but still not as good as ACR. I would then suggest to export your raw files using ACR (in After effects) to a "log" file, and then use it in premiere. Any other ideas ?
