  1. Also just got the FP, decided between it and the Fuji x-t3. Been trying to replace my bmpccOG for quite a while and didn't like any of the "stills body"-cameras I tested, also having a hard time justifying keeping several cameras. The FP seemed like a no-brainer. Payed about 1070 GBP body only, looks unused. Still undecided as for what lenses to get for it, vintage for sure. Maybe Minoltas? The metabones MD to L mount adapter seems nice.
  2. Great interview! Very cool of them to participate. Although I am confused by the answer to the question about a cine range of the f/1.4 primes... Mr. Takuma must have been refering to PL-mount? Sigma is doing great things.
  3. Yes! I was interested in this same thing as well. I've recently started looking at the FDs again after not owning any for a few years, and I am surprised by the price. Seems like even the FDn 50 f/1.4 or the wider f/2.8 lenses are more expensive now than when I bought and sold them. Weird!
  4. Media Division released another video, I bet many of you already watched it. This time they are examining the Canon FDs and their similarity to the legendary Canon K35s. It's one hour and 24 minutes long, and holds the same quality as their video on the C/Y Carl Zeiss video. By the way, there's a segment on removing yellow tint on thorium coated lenses with a cheap Ikea lamp @ 1h15m. I thought you might be interested @mercer
  5. Could be quite an interesting anthology! Some Night on Earth type thing.
  6. Mir-1B, Helios 44-2 (black, white markings), Jupiter-8. The front preset ring on all of these are super tight, but the second aperture ring is a tiny bit too loose, making fine adjustment difficult. The jupiter-8 is still pretty tight, and I do like the 85 mm, but as I don't shoot full frame it rarely gets any use.
  7. I hope you get decent copies! I hear they can differ alot from copy to copy (maybe because of prior usage, maybe because of manufacturing?). I bought the 37, 58 and 85 last year but don't like them at all! The way that the iris work just doesn't do it for me. Although they give an interesting look to say the least.
  8. Internal ProRes. Please
  9. I use the Roxsen/Pixco FD-m4/3 Focal Reducer. I've heard people saying it has had some play/sloppiness on the body mount as well as not mounting the old FDs properly. I've only used it with FDn glass and it's been a treat!
  10. I found the Schneider 16mm f/1.9 in stellar condition locally at an auction at the beginning of the year. I had already sold my pocket but that time though. However, I've recently bought another pocket v1 and I am about to order an Arri-s adapter. I'll let you know how I like it! That's a gorgeous short by the way, thanks for the link. That makes a lot of sense. I don't know if I've ever thought about it that way.
  11. I was on a study visit at a tv station while in film school, where in the basement they still had two old Arriflex 16S sitting. They were the 3-lens turret kind. If my memory serves me correct they were equipped with 16, 25 and 50mm Schneider-Kreuznach Arri-s lenses, and that is what they used to shoot reportages and the like with. I've tried to adopt this simple 3-lens setup a couple of times. For my BMPCC I only have the 16mm so far, but I am aiming to complete the same set as on the arri at some point. For super35/APS-C I aimed for 28, 50 and 85 or 100 mm. Obviously Both longer and wid
  12. I still watch some of my old physical DVD's on a 36" CRT TV. I would probably watch VHS' too if the player still worked. They are however in my opinion unwatchable on a bigger, say 50" 1080p TV. I'd reckon I could enjoy 480p streaming if codec/bit rate were up to par.
  13. Generally I dislike changes in aspect ratio. It makes me think of youtubers who go from vlog-style to some "cinematic montage", even if the Kraig Addams example posted by @kye is pretty cool. Talking about narrative function - I watched the latest season of 13 Reasons Why (season 3) last week, and they frequently swap between two aspect ratios along with color changes (some scenes are even black and white). It is seemingly used to distinguish between timelines. Present day is represented by cool color and 2.22:1 aspect ratio while flashbacks are 1.77:1 and warm tones. The aspect rat
