    I don't think companies as a whole are purposely discriminating against women. If they were, women would not be in high positions, which they are.

    Check this ratio (male/female in high positions). Its the only thing you have to do to answer some your own questions.

    So after all the discussions here and always seeing Kidzrevil's stuff on social media, I'll give the diffusion filters a try. Got a Warm Black Pro Mist 1/8 off eBay for 28€ incl shipping. Should arrive today and I'll give it a spin on the weekend.

    I check ebay everyday looking for a BPM or WBPM 1/8 and i never saw a single one for that price (at least shipping to Europe). They are expensive. Great catch man! It was a single sale or do you have the link to share? If youre not in Europe forget about it :(

    @Bizz 1/8 & 1/4 warm black pro mist are amazing for skin tones. It even fixes the skin tones on sony & panasonic cameras. Throw them on a contrasty lens and the look is incredible ! I honestly wouldn't wait up on the black satins if I had the opportunity to use the wbpm

    But its not wbpm...its just Warm Pro Mist 1/4 :confused:

    The black satins don't increase in flare as you go up in grades the resolution reducing element just gets more intense. A good neutral look like the bpm 1/8 would roughly be around the 1 & 2 grades of black satin. Good luck getting your hands on one though tiffen is always out of stock

    I love them. They help eliminate some of the artifacts that come with the in camera sharpening algorithim

    Yeah, i know. Its impossible to find it here in Portugal! On amazon is out of stock. I found a store on the UK but they dont send it to Portugal and another one that wants 40£ for shipping :dizzy: I found Warm Pro Mist 1/4 on ebay (30€) but i dont know if thats what im looking for (i base my opinion on the example video from tiffen). I guess that one is very different from the BPM 1/8. :confused:

    Behind the scenes footage I put together for my latest client. Shot w/ Nikkor Auto 50mm f2 , metabones speedbooster xl & tiffen satin filter


    Hey Kidz, nice looking footage as always! You wrote that you prefer black satin over black pro mist because it flares a lot. What would be the "equivalent" black satin of the black pro mist 1/8? Satin 1?

    I really like Matt Workmans channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/cinematographydb Unfortunately a lot of his old "The Cinematography of... " videos got taken down, but there is still a lot of good content there.

    Hey! Someone created a new channel with those vids. They call it cinematography database fan: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtTjh6GOn218KbjhF8mtFLA/videos  :)

    I applaud that.  Tempted to downgrade my phone back to a non smart version. Keypad for texting, no internet...mmmmmmm

    You should really try it. In 10 years (and couting) i only had 2 mobile phones (and i only buy one when it stops working) and i never, ever, use internet on it. By choice. I dont want to be online all the time. I dont need it. So, for example, when im on the bus or subway i like to listen to some music or just think about stuff and do a lot of observation. PS: But thats me and my experience...i respect who likes to be online on their smartphone.

    I assume some of you have heard about this by now (But if not^). PTA was his own Director of Photography on his next film, Phantom Thread (Daniel Day Lewis's last film).

    Obviously too soon to say how this went for him, but what are your thoughts on this?

    Biting off more than he can chew? Too many jobs to worry about? Not enough experience?

    Or entirely worth it for how much he'll gain in creative expression in now each of the main areas of the filmmaking process? (just spitballing)

    Steven Soderbergh does that very often. Directs and also does the cinematography. Just imagine that....it must be a very hard thing to do :grimace: Imo you should NEVER do that. The same way a director should never edit, but hey....whatever works for them :glasses:

    Clearly, the M31 LUT. It will go down in media history books of the 2010s as a similar abomination of taste as, say, this was the abomination of 1980s video making taste:

    Oh yeah, to go back to 2010s bad taste, also add
    - f0.95 Bokeh (where a person's eyes are in focus but the nose is blurred-out);
    - pointless anamorphic flares;
    - pointless slider shots;
    - fake light leak transitions;
    - people shooting flowers in their backyard in macro shots;
    - Hans Zimmer symphonic movie scores copied and pasted on the macro shots of the backyard flowers.
    - 1 minute opening credits for 3 minute YouTube videos that otherwise consists of slider shots of backyard flowers shot with f0.95, anamorphic Bokeh & flares with fake light leak transitions - with everything being graded with the M31 LUT and a lifted Hans Zimmer movie score as the soundtrack.

    WOW! I did not know this! This is epic!!

    PS: Your opinion is epic too...but not as much :)
