  1. cheapest parfocal? if you dont mind extending zoom tubes.... i would recommend the minolta 35-70 3.5, comes even with a macro mode in the latest iteration... got a mint one for 70 euros. awesome plucky lens. if you got a bit more spare cash, go for a contax zeiss 35-70 3.5 : around 130 euros.
  2. yeah, it all is based on intent... it's no easy task I am also waiting for a couple of screens to arrive, that i want to use for scopes and false color. Btw, once you get to 50IRE, it becomes way punchier :
  3. Splendid kye, just what i needed to hear, a lot of thanks for the very detailled breakdown! I like contrast way too much for my own good, and it seems i am scared of images not "popping" enough, so i've got some unlearning to do. It's kinda scary to go to those low IRE but i gave it a go at around 30 IRE skintines... it looks horrible as a thumbnail, but fullscreen it *kinda* works... second screen is at 40 IRE :
  4. i was not happy with my early attempts either... kye, could you give me some honest feedback about this one? (i didn't bother denoising and regraining it, my question is more about gamma linearity, and quality of skintones and general balance)
  5. had some more fun with this ... this thread is a great idea tried to go for a more sober, "normal" look this time
  6. which browser are you using? Chrome seems to be most color-accurate. As for export process, i did a Grab Still -> right-click Export, then PNG. no big look differences. Or are you running some color profiles on your screen?
  7. here's my take at it, please be gentle
  8. It's a Bolex 8/19 1.5x stretch anamorphic, on a Voigtlander Ultron 40mm II lens.
  9. if you go m43 like in this picture, you can go quite a bit smaller as well. Here is my most portable setup. Does either 4k 21:9ish or 6k 16:9ish
  10. no clue. but at least they are working hard at it.... i could get one of their betas right now, but i rather have the finished body with it.
  11. As for ML, i am still invested in an Apertus ... i rather they got my money than Canon. Still, a blackmagic or Panasonic are never out of reach
  12. similar here. FullHD video was the reason i got the 5dmk2, and only ML made me upgrade to 5dmk3. Nowadays i am quite happy with my GH5, but i admit that i lust for that panasonic fullframe announcement. Canon glass is the only thing that i have left... and frankly, with the new mount coming up, i think i will sell that as well... and go for some older Contax or Leica glass.
  13. nice! gotta love hanami drinking parties in japan... just got home from there, too bad there was no meeting with titto ah well, i will be back to japan in 3 weeks

    GH5 to Alexa Conversion

    Hi @Sage, having quite some fun here tinkering with the LUTs. A question tho : In the documentation you recommend exposing VLog middle gray at a higher IRE than the Alexa. I usually ETTR, but do you have any exposing tips for HLG converted to LogC (middle gray, clean mids, shadow threshold)? @hyalinejim : thanks a lot for those tests! Out of curiosity, have you tried to apply a color space transform from Arri ... to let's say Rec.709 on the Main LUT yet? I don't have Arri reference material to try it out
  15. For me it was a roundabout thing :D I always liked video more than stills. When i got my 5Dmk2 back in the day, i was stunned by the video it could do. Soon i noticed i missed essential stills knowledge. Shutter/aperture ... framing, storytelling. I also discovered what RAW could do, ETTRing, different focal lengths. Then Magic Lantern RAW came along. And suddenly i could apply all i learnt about stills to videos. Literally everything. But whereas stills "capture the moment", or as you said, get the whole story.... i feel video allows for storytelling :D And so i am back to mostly video ... but i think some stills knowledge is essential.
