    Justin Bacle reacted to Cliff Totten in Canon removing 24p from new 4K mirrorless cameras - THE MEMES   
    Its not funny. A Canon rep told there is a legitimate reason for no 24p. He said something about the way the sensor is read out. He said that Canon wants it to operate at a perfect temperature. It runs too cold at 24p, but is at an optimum temp at 30p. It was done for the benefit of the camera.

    Thanks a lot to all the competitors. This is a great idea for a contest and I love it.
    For the story, I went ahead and tried to participate. I picked a setup from what I had lying around, went to shoot and was pretty please with my day. However, when I saw the footage on resolve, it was so shaky that I couldn't use it. This was my last hope for this camera, and I had no time to re-shoot :s
    Just for laughs I went to shoot with this stuff. (Don't try this at home, this is the crappiest camera ever made for video) 

    I can't wait for the next round ! Congrats to all participants you all did great jobs !

    Justin Bacle got a reaction from kaylee in Some shots with the ridicously impractical LOMO 35-NAP2-3M   
    Okay, let's be honest, this thing is huge, weighs a ton (3 kg), is not sharp and focuses at a minimum of around 6 meters.
    But if I hadn't bought that a year ago "for fun", I would have never followed anamorphic stuff.
    (The thing is crazy cheap, I'd say just the glass & metal to build this beast are worth more :p)
    I think it is a good test for anyone willing to use anamorphics, you need A LOT of motivation to shoot with it !
    As I just got my Isco Ultra-Star (blue star) after playing with the LOMO, I thought I might put a small video as it may be the last time I use the lomo for anything else than a paperweight.
    (Oh, and the middle brass part of the isco is a pain to unscrew, did not manage to yet :s)
    A picture of the setup, just for laughs

    Justin Bacle reacted to Hans Punk in 75 GBP vs 750 GBP Single Focus Adapter   
    Inspired by @Justin Bacle and his post, I recently picked up the big brother of the GB-Kalee that had damaged internals - but luckily the front focusing section was in great condition. The optics are a beastly 100mm front and rear so I separated the front focusing assembly and have been pretty impressed by the optic quality and coating.
    I post this here as it is a bit more info on the bigger brother of the GB-Kalee Small as it may inspire others to remount or test further these lovely vintage optics as single focus solutions. Unfortunatly I have just started a long term job that does not allow me to spend time playing with re-mounting this beast, so I've decided to sell.
    From what I can tell, to get minimum focus on this big boy (of 1m) - the front and rear optics need spacing of approx 40mm...which unfortunately is further than the helicoid will allow without unscrewing and separating the two body halves. However if someone was to re-mount or rail-mount the optics in some kind of MacGyver fashion, you'd have a very tasty big boy focusing optic to play with. Like I said, I now have no time to experiment with this myself, but from some rough handheld tests - it appears to deliver the same high quality as it's smaller Kalee brother, but with bigger optics.
    In a shameless move (but target to those following this thread who might find interesting) , here is my focusing assembly listed on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GB-KALEE-VARAMORPH-Focusing-front-Assembly/253440130338

    Justin Bacle reacted to Dean in Fuji X-H1: new APSC video oriented camera   
    Dont agree with this at all. Find the ergonomics of the Fuji excellent. Not as good as a NX1, but certainly better than any Nikon, Sony or Panasonic I have used.  Much prefer the ergonomics of the X-T2 to G85 or GH3 or GH4 ... never used a GH5 though. BTW ... I despise swivelling screen so just a matter of taste I guess. Thank god Fuji do not do a swivelling screen  
    Really looking forward to this camera. IBIS, top plate LCD and internal F-Log. All the things I thought were missing from the X-T2 will be delivered  Should be a nice hybrid cam.

    Justin Bacle reacted to Django in Fuji X-H1: new APSC video oriented camera   
    Agreed. And it gets even better with the XT2. On the stills side, I'd say ergonomics easily beat mirrorless competition & even DSLRs. Having dedicated dials for ISO & shutter speed is just great while your eye is on the EVF, add aperture lens control, AF joystick and it's close to perfect. Photography feels so complete and like it should be and not like playing mortal kombat with button combos, nameless wheels, menu diving etc..
    On the video side, it's a little bit more work in progress, no touch screen but with the latest firmware the AF is getting really solid. Generally the IQ is quite excellent, color science, best AWB.. a clean sharp 4K image. the film simulations, highlight/shadow settings.. you can get some really great imagery SOOC unlike Sony's.
    So now a XH1 with IBIS & internal FLOG seems nice but I would need a bit more than that to upgrade.
     I also don't understand why the XT2 can't get internal FLOG via firmware??
    Anyways here is my top list of things i'd like to see addressed aside internal FLOG & IBIS:
    #1 A no crop APS-C/Super35 4K mode. There is currently a 1.7x crop in XT2 4K.
    #2 high frame rate (give us at least 120fps 1080p)
    #3 face/eye detection AF in 4K (currently only works in 1080p)
    #4 independent stills/video settings (i want my shutter speed to default at 1/50 in video mode)

    I used the EVF a lot when I had the AF100A also, but it was mostly because the LCD sicked ass in the sunlight. But I think it was a pretty great viewfinder.

    Justin Bacle got a reaction from Jim Chang in 75 GBP vs 750 GBP Single Focus Adapter   
    Hello everyone, let me tell you the story of how I got the cheapest single focus solution. And how it compares to the Rectilux HCDNA (results a the end of the post)
    Last month, I found this anamorphic adapter on ebay :

    It was cheap, and looked like a weird anamorphic projection lens using prisms. So I bought it (Gear Acquisition Syndrome :D).
    Then I took it apart to clean it, and noticed it consisted of two prisms (for the anamorphic part) and some kind of focussing solution in the front.

    So I 3D printed an adapter for it (around 5GBP printed at a local shop) and tried it. And of course it confirmed to be a single focus solution !
    So I had to test it ! Here are the results compared to the hardcore DNA :
    Taking lens : Super Takumar MC 105mm f/2.8
    Camera : Canon 50D
    Anamorphic lens : Schneider Cinelux
    Single Focus Solution : Rectilux HCDNA vs GB-Kalee Small Anamorphic (front part)
    (Same grade applied to all shots)

    Here is a picture of the setup :
     
    Of course, the GB-Kalee is less convenient : 
    - Minimum focus distance around 1.8m
    - Smaller element diameter (would work better with smaller anamorphic)
    - More difficult to focus (as my copy of this adapter is quite beaten up)
    - Needs a mounting solution for both back and front as there is no filters. (But the HCDNA is similar here are the threads are not standard size)
    So, What do you think ? 
    I personally think this GB-Kalee needs a rehousing !
