    What kind of control will you have over shooting locations, and specifically, how far you can position the camera from the talent?

    If you've got flexibility then that's great, but if you're shooting things in limited space then you don't want a lens that's too tight as you won't be able to back the camera up enough to frame shots the way you want to.  Just a practical consideration. 

    I'll be shooting a lot of interviews on tight spaces, but most of the content its outside (streets, hills, mountains), that's why my options are the 40mm or the 50mm, but for now I can't find any test to see the real difference on any practical situation. I've seen some close ups and portraits with the 40mm and for me they look really good, but I need to see some shots with the 50mm to compare :(

  2. Hi everyone!

    Im looking for some experiences with anamorphic focal lenghts. At this time I'm looking into the Atlas Orion series for a documentary project that I will start shooting next year. The problem is that this project it's a solo project. I will be shooting 2-3 days a month for maybe 8 to 12 months with the BMPCC 6K, and I "need" the anamorphic look. I have the budget to buy just one lens (rent it's not an option, and I'll probably gonna buy the rest of the set later) and I'm looking for the most versatile one. For now my favorite its the 40mm because its wide enough for general and portrait shots, but maybe someone has a better idea or better input on the other lenses?

    A cinematic image is the combination of a lot of things, 

    But between a a7s2 and a a7r2 , I would get the a7r2 ( I had both, I kept the a7r2) Full frame mode is good on the a7r2 and have less rolling shutter than the a7s2, colors are great if you know what you are doing with Slog2 .... and autofocus is super useful, much better than the a7s2, now I shoot my video with it all the time, it save you a 1st AC in most case.

    I would consider autofocus glass over manual glass if you invest in sony. 
    If you are not in a hurry I would wait a bit, a A7III might also be very good in video if it get the A9 sensor and autofocus system.

    That some location scouting I shot with a7r2 + 35mm 2.8 in slog2 + grading.

    Thanks Laurier. I liked the A7RII, I had a shooting a few months ago with some Milvus glass and it was really great. Im buying used gear now and don't have access to a A7RII, but if something appears it will be my first option.

    Talking about glass I'm not really into autofocus. I really like manual lenses with a good follow focus. Now I have access to 3 Leica R lenses, and soon I want to buy 3 Zeiss Milvus. My options now are A7S + Shogun or A7SII alone. I think I'm going with the A7S + Shogun this time, and the when the A7S/R III comes out I'm thinking to sell the A7S body and buy the new one.

    Are you considering the A7SII/A7RII as well or only the first versions A7S/A7R? I think the color science and options were improved on the second versions plus they do have sensor stabilization that one could use in a pinch.

    Im between the A7S + Atomos Shogun (and then upgrade to the A7S III when it comes out. Or the A7S II without shogun. Im more tempted to go first with the first version (shogun + camera body its cheaper) and then upgrade, since I think the mark III it's coming out soon.

    Not a great response by him, but do not take it to personal as missteps occur. Some older people can get grumpy or impatient at times with youngsters who they feel should do a little research on their own first (google, youtube, vimeo and this forum's search engine). Sometimes younger people are also impatient with older people who maybe don't frequently use or understand new ideas, technologies and trend directions as well. Maybe and hopefully, a different approach in response can be considered in the future instead. On can never stop learning and this forum as a whole, has more people willing to offer advice than not.

    I'm not attacking him because his age, my answer was for his reply, the reply sounds like an old grumpy man just putting words without any sense, just for trying to be grumpy. I respect and work with a lot of people older than me, and no one ever answer me like this guy. I even asked the same question to some directors and DPs and helped me a lot with a nice and kind approach. Let's finish this here, please.

    Also, of course I can do some Youtube/Vimeo search, BUT if I'm asking here is because I want to know the opinion of the people around here. I'm looking for "curated" content by users of this forum, people who makes videos and have nice opinions. For me at least this is a nice and different approach to just "looking on youtube".

    Totally, absolutely, ridiculous post. Welcome to the forums, Lorian!

    What's wrong with you angry old man? The other users replied with nice and good examples, and you? Take care of your heart, don't be that old angry guy.

    Thanks everyone for that awesome examples, it's always nice to check and share nice works. What im looking here is nice examples to share with my team and take references for color grading for this camera models. 




  7. Hi everyone, first post here.

    I'm looking over the internet for some cinematic examples (commercials, documentary, narrative, wild life, short films, whatever...) using the A7S and the A7R. Anyone knows some good examples? At least for me that "cinematic" look comes in first place from lenses, lights and color grading, and then from the camera, so thats why I'm searching for this kind of examples, because I want to pair a A7S/R with some Leica R glass.

    I was looking for the GH5 first, but the Sony is by far more popular in my kind of jobs, so by now it's not an option.

    Thanks in advance.
