    you must have a grip like ironman 😉 i have been considering getting a cheap dumb adapter for each m42. that would make for quicker lens changes on the p4k. digressing slightly, i'm half way through building a table and backboard for shooting some of my own lens tests. What are your thought on xrite colour checkers. I assume their the bees knees, but their close to three times the price of other competitors. I'm finding it a bit hard to justify that amount of cash.
  2. nice entry. very smooth, both the music and the video, black and white works well in this context i think.

    i can't say i have had that experience at all. But i think i probably unconsciously give it an extra strong twist at the end, just to be sure
  4. dont know, but posts from helsinki wont help you, he is a spammer another name to keep an eye out on is kimminseok or is that kimminsuck i do get confused 🙄 a few of us report such posts but it is up to mr reid to sort it out.
  5. more research reveals it is indeed a camera lens. Mine does come with a focusing helicoid, i need a short m42 to mft adapter, maybe a short extension tube to get me to infinity and some 2 part epoxy perhaps
  6. actually i tried two enlarger lenses, one projection lens, and the russian lens that arrived today . I'm not really surprised i have read that the once you go lower than 70mm or so with enlarger lenses its harder to get infinity focus and you need shorter and shorter mounts. The el nikor 63mm enlarger lens is notoriously difficult to get infinity focus without a custom mount. I didn't think this russian lens was an enlarger lens i figured it would mount up to m42 and i'd be away but its m39 which is a popular size for enlarger lenses and i dont read or speak russian so theres a good chance that maybe it is an enlarger lens 🤔. I'm not too perturbed i have a bunch of adapters of different thicknesses, two helicoids yet to arrive.
  7. my lens has arrived, preliminary tests give no joy. If i free lens i can get focus, it appears my m42 to mft adapter is too long. Looks like i am waiting for the helicoid to arrive

    Formula 1 cameras ?

    may as well give it a go, nothing ventured nothing gained
  9. if this was the formula one thread, btm would get a dnf, Did not finish ! continuing the f1 theme, scrutineers should examine all footage for irregularities 😎

    you don't have a 20mm tak for sale ? that would just about round out my collection i think 🤔 the 15 and 17mm are just a bit pricey for me. i kept everything m42 for simplicity.

    Formula 1 cameras ?

    go out to the local industrial area on the weekend plenty of action going on there usually 😎 seen quite a bit of gear on gumtree lately and i keep thinking where was this gear when the video challenge was on 🙄 Maybe we'll do a video challenge 2.0 at some point
  12. i hope it lasts longer than 16 seconds 😎 i wanna be able to put my feet up and savior the experience

    after the soviet challenge we may as well progress straight to the takumar challenge 😎
  14. over here we call those back rows the cheap seats 😀 i liked the sunrise or sunset nice colour was there any sound ? didn't hear anything and i dont think there's a rule about that either, disappointing kye, very disappointing 🙄

    so what did the kombi max out at, hitting conrod straight ? 🤣
  17. awesome, looks like i can do two entries then. now i need a plan b
  18. whats the crop factor your working with ? the bmp4k is 2x which will be kinda handy as distance = safety, you'll understand better after you see the video 😎 i'm about 85% certain of an idea i want to pursue. i just bought a m42 helicoid to play with. i have a russian enlarger lens and a polish enlarger lens i want to play with. If the russian lens doesn't turn up in time i'll use the russian enlarger lens. Polands like a stones throw from russia right ? any chance of including it in the challenge kye ? 😉

    Formula 1 cameras ?

    i watched bathurst on tv on sunday. ( its like formula 1, but australian and better 😉) i was actually a bit disappointed with the amount of moire or aliasing visible, didn't seem to matter what the shot was either. anyone else notice or am i being overly picky ? I do know its a live event and some materials are prone to it however i reckon i noticed alot more this year. Maybe you guys are starting to rub off on me 🙄
  20. i presume the advertising sells it as easy peasy. You go out, blasting along with whatever activity your doing, capturing all that awesomeness on the gopro bring it home to watch it in 4k or hd perhaps, the reality is somewhat different, there is perhaps a lot more involved than people anticipated in producing awesomeness. I would venture to say that even at a gopro level one will need to apply a few filmmaker techniques to make it watchable for more than five minutes for anyone other than family. Not to mention the persistence and practice required to learn your camera as well. I'm not surprised people give up after a few tries.

    bmp4k adventures

    some of you are no doubt aware that there's a bit of a drought going on in australia at the moment. I have access to a well on a bush water reserve across the road from my place. This place is normally abit of a swamp but at the moment the water level is down about 18 feet. At the moment i pump about 500 liters out of it every few days for stock and domestic. Not sure how the other locals are faring with the water situation i moved an old bath next to the pump and top it up every time i pump water. the plan is to hammer a few star pickets in and hang the gopro of them and timelapse it all, see what turns up for a drink.
  22. i have 4 and 6, didn't bother with the 7. Can't find the enthusiasm to buy an eight. Some people on here didn't like the 7 at all. the eight uses the same battery as the seven which is handy if you had a seven, but the addition of the external mic and vlog screen will set you back $139 us each... ouch. i'll pass.
  23. At the risk of getting gutted by kaylee, i'd like to mention i have seen some new movie trailers for a movie named hustlers. it looks rather interesting. Seeing its a big screen release i assume its has a bit substance than most of the other stuff thats been posted in this thread. looks like an interesting take on women getting some of their own back on wall street. i googled it seems like rotten tomatoes liked it but audiences were less favorable, anyone likely to see it ?
  24. occupational health and safety would have kittens if they saw that 🙄 you could top it off with a misting spray bottle that would have to take 20 degrees of the temp at least 😁 i have 2 options for you retro and modern
