  1. Now on ebay as well: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112031295686?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Happy bidding!
  2. I bought the Lens Turbo I 4 months ago, since that I had no problems with the IQ. I use with a 50mm Pentax SMC f1.7, 85mm Canon f1.8, Tamron 24-70. This is a great comparison: Here are my latest two videos shot with it (there are also some canon shots)
  3. The lens is very lightweight, weights around 130g. This is a single focus lens, which means you only have to focus your taking lens! If filming to a 16:9 sensor, your final aspect ratio will be 2.35:1. The rear thread is 52mm, you can use step up/down rings to attach it to your taking lens. This is one of the widest anamorphic lens, you can use it from 35mm. The lens also have it's downsides, for example chromatic aberration is present (like on all 1.33x lenses). Please know what you're buying and do your research. No returns accepted. Shipping from the EU via EMS and tracking. PayPal accepted. Price 550 eur + shipping
  4. i switched from FCPX to Premiere one and a half year ago, and it was the greatest thing in my video career. I loved FCPX's interface, but after the first week of heavy premiere usage, there's no way I would go back. But it's absolutely subjective, if you find FCPX to fit your needs, go for it. In my perspective, premiere is better because it supports more formats, I love the built in grading tools and the integrations of other adobe products, i also cut more efficiently with the custom workspaces. This doesn't mean FCPX isn't good, so choose the SW that'll fit you and your needs.
  5. Got any 1.33x anamorphics laying around, like SLR Magic, Century or Soligor? Please PM me asap. Thank you very much. Alex
  6. Not sure where to post my "want to buy" request, so sorry if this is the wrong place. Anyone, selling a cheap EOS to MFT adapter, like a K&F koncept, or something similar? Thanks!
  7. Thanks for your reply! Have you tried it or what experience do you have with it? It's the same price range as a FOTGA DP3000 so I'm not sure with which one should I go. Your opinions are now very welcome! Thank you!
  8. I'm hoping for live anamorphic desqueeze, REC709 preview when shooting with V-Log, better slow mo, better DR with possible higher bitrates. Too bad that Panasonic said no to S35 sensor, but hey, we can live with MFT, it also has it's own advantages, and we also have speedboosters...
  9. Anybody have experience/opinion on this follow focus? Looks like a rebranded filmcity or some other indian manufacturer, I'm just not sure about the quality: http://www.movofilms.be/movofims-v2-dslr-follow-focus.html
  10. Hey, I'm selling my Bolex Moller 1.5x anamorphot, please check out this topic for more information and sample images:
  11. Hey Folks! My 1.5x baby moller is for sale. It is the focus through version (you only focus your taking lens!), and has a custom built housing and comes with a 0.5 diopter. Some specs: Rear thread: 55mm Front thread: 67mm Mininmal focus distance without diopter: 2m Minimal focus distance with diopter: from 0,9m to 2.2m Without vignette from: 28mm (MFT), 50mm (APSC), it works on fullframe as well, but I did not test the min. focal length Condition: SUPERB! Shipping from: European Union Please check out the attached pictures. I also grabbed some snapshots from my latest video (my focus pulling was not the best...). It was shot with the Lumix GH4, Cinelike D profile + Rec 709 LUT in the post, Mitakon lens turbo, Pentax 50mm & Canon 85mm f1.8 mostly set to F4.0 + the moller & UV filter. In my opinion it is an awesome lens which gives you 2.66:1 as a final result. As you can see it is pretty sharp, some say it's sharp from F1.4, but i found it soft for my taste, and it is also hard to pull focus when wide open. It is a run & gun lens, small, handy and lightweight. I'm willing to ship the lens worldwide but please note that you are responsible for customs, taxes and other charges. The price is not set yet, if you are interested, please contact me with your offer! Thank you!
  12. Sorry for my dumbness, but I don't exactly understand you. You said, that you cropped from 3.55:1, so you must had shoot on 16:9 mode. I'm not even sure if you can shoot in 4:3 mode with the A7S. Your question was: Nobody gets FF coverd with 2x anamorphic lens with 50mm, because it'll vignette. Doesn't matter if you shoot on 16:9 or 4:3.
  13. 80+mm will cover the FF with 2x ana, 1.33x anamorphic will cover 50mm on FF.
  14. So, you cropped the image from 3.66:1 to 2.36:1 because of the vignette?
  15. Looks like you found your way Here are some shots, testing the bolex with different apertures: Please note that a Lens Turbo Adapter was mounted so x0.72 the aperture value as well. The focus through bolex is great for run and gun, but you have to stop down the aperture at least to f4. But I have to make more tests, a festival is coming up in the next month, will see how it can handle those conditions. Honestly, framing and desqueezing the image doesn't really bothers me, i can still frame the stretched image, but judging the focus from a 3' inch screen without proper peaking can ruin a lot of shots. Do you have any experience with attachable Viewfinders? I mainly shoot with shoulder rig and a slider, so it could be a reasonable investment, I'm just not sure if it will magnify my LCD in the way I imagine, if yes, that can solve my issue. Thanks for your comments guys! Happy shooting!
  16. Hey Caleb, I've got the focusthrough version of the baby moller, so I only have to focus my taking lens. Focus Pulling become very unusual with anamorphic since the peaking is not reliable and the focus distances are very short.
  17. I also forgot to ask, do you use viewfinder or an external monitor? Which one do you prefer? Thanks!
  18. Dear fellow forumers, I would love to hear your opinions and techniques, how do you nail your focus with anamorphic lens. I'm shooting with GH4, and bought recentily a Bolex 1.5x anamorphot lens, since that I have experienced several issues and yet, I'm not sure with which device should I pull focus. The issues I have found: #1 PEAKING - Because of the baby mollers smaller size, there isn't coming through too much light, so the peaking isn't working very well. Same with autofocus (didn't tried yet, waiting for a native lens). #2 FOCUS DISTANCE - Without a diopter, you can focus from 1,5-2m to infinity. The vintage lenses have nice, long focus barrel, but the distance between 2m and infinity is very small. Pulling focus without a proper follow focus or other device is a mess. #3 APERTURE - Some say, bolex is great when wide open. Personally, I found it too soft. The anamorphic lens completely changes the behaviour of your taking lens. How do you pull focus? What device are you using (i was thinking about purchasing a movofilms FF or aputures new DEC). Also what is the fastest aperture you use on set? Thanks! Cheers! Alex
  19. I'm using Zhongy's Lens Turbo. The edges might be slightly softer than with the Metabones SB, but isn't really noticable, and for the 150 USD price, I'm absolutely fine with that. An interesting alternative will be APUTUREs new DEC adapter for around 450 bucks.
  20. This was mine dilemma as well, but I ended up with GH4, because I really needed a better camera performance for a project than my t3i's. We'll see what the GH5 can do, but to be honest, the GH4 performance is solid, the 100/200mbit codec is great, the 4K's nice, anamorphic shooting is now a thing, the battery last long enough and there is no overheating. Yep, there are downsides as well, but you'll always have to sacrifice some specs. So far, so good, I'm hyped for the GH5, but I'm really fine with the GH4's performance.
  21. If your lens moves to one side, you can spot in while shooting, so I'm trying to be aware of. I had the lens for a month now, which is not a long time, but I had no problem setting it it (so far). I never tried vidatlantic, but they're build universally, to hold many lens types. Mine was modified by the seller, to fit the Bolex, and he did a hell of a great job!
