My cameras and kit

Found 130 results

  1. Hi all, First of all thanks for taking your time to read my post. Here is my situation I have hacked GH2 that I use for shooting short narrative films and I also intended to shoot a feature on it. Now with the appearance of the Black Magic Cinema camera I m considering selling my GH2 and buying the BM camera, however I really love what I get from my liitle GH2. Now first question is would this be a smart decission, or should I keep shooting on my GH2. In case that my finances improve drastically I m considering buying a BM camera without selling my GH2, which leads to my second question - would I be ablr to shoot with these 2 cameras a serious narrative film in a 2 camera set-up situation? If yes, than that is something to seriously think about. And my last question is would I be able to use my LOMO OKC 18 lenses and my Carl Zeiss 85mm 1.4 on BM camera, and if yes what kind of adapter would I need? I simply love these lenses and practically shoot 99% of my stuff with them (I still need to save up for 14 mm and 35mm Semyang as I m having problems with focus pulling on some shots with my LOMO's). Anyway, thanks a lot on your responses. I m looking forward to hear some suggestions. Cheers!
  2. [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Hello all![/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]New to here. Very excited about my new GH2 body. Apparently a lens is needed though. How about that? I purchased my GH2 mainly as a B-camera to use when shooting interview for close-up, beauty stuff to complement my medium wide (using the Panasonic AC130 as my A-cam), but hope to eventually learn to flex its muscles on more interesting stuff.[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]I'm looking for some lens recommendations. These are kind of two separate questions, but what would be best for my needs and then what would be cheapest but workable? My research seems to point me to the Voigtlander 25mm, but it's a little pricey for me right now. I plan on getting the cheap kit lens (14-42) just for the purposes of learning the camera, but it seems the kit lenses aren't quite going to deliver me that nice shallow DOF look I'm hoping for. Any budget options that'll do the trick for me, putting it on a tripod and getting close up, blurry background, b-camera interview beauty stuff?[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Thoughts?[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Much appreciated.[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]-Noah[/font][/color]
  3. Hi guys, writer/director here working on getting my first feature up and running. I entered this comp with only 9 hours before the deadline, primarily, as when I saw the judges, I knew it was real people who make and live cinema and not funding bodies and other lack of film education types, who were going to see them. I shot it on the GH2 to test what I have always believed in, which is, that when it comes to any kind of artistic or creative expression, it is what you have to say and not what you say it on or with that counts, and nothing else, and I knew others had made full blown productions with full crews, budgets, locations and everything, so I was slightly taken aback when the judges: Paul Greengrass (Bourne films) Jeremy Bolt (Producer Event Horizon, Resident Evil films) and editor Eddie Hamilton (X-Men: First Class, Kick Ass) were unanimous as picking it as the winner!!! Here are a couple of their comments: Judges comments included Eddie Hamilton (X-Men editor)… ‘Very cinematic, excellent use of camera, composition, editing and music… a tour de force, and for me the clear winner.’ Producer Jeremy Bolt (Resident Evil Franchise) commented… ‘Subtle and visually bold. Made you think and the boys performance was very believable ­it was understated. I also thought editing, cinematography and music were very strong.’ Would love to know what you all think. Less than 2 mins so nothing heavy. For me the GH2 totally rocks for all the reasons that Andrew has been tirelessly cheerleading it for, I am a guerilla filmmaker and don't like the time and wasted energy associated with waiting around on film sets to do this and setting up that, ok maybe if you are spending someone elses money, however I just like to shoot and get on with it. I am really wanting to shoot my feature in exactly the same way I made this and with this camera. So am always looking for likeminded, cine-literate, passionate about film... filmmakers. Best wishes to all and rememember if you can imagine it, you can do it... the mantra of Stanley Kubrick, who is GOD, that would be Greatest of Directors and my favourite for the integrity to the purpose of what you do and how to accomplish it :-) [media]http://vimeo.com/30941061[/media]
  4. So I'm thinking of getting a GH2. I've used canon stuff in the past, but the GH2 seems to be so much better in terms of what I can do with it. So, here's what I'm thinking: GH2 - [url="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/736343-REG/Panasonic_DMC_GH2K_Lumix_DMC_GH2_Digital_Camera.html"]$750[/url] 50mm FD 1.4 ssc - Ebay/$166 FD Adapter - [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-FD-FL-to-AF101-AF100-G2-G3-GF3-E-PL3-GH2-E-P3-micro-4-3-adapter-/251021722531?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a720f83a3#ht_3685wt_1410"]$51[/url] 32GB SD Card - [url="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/835521-REG/Samsung_MB_SSBGA_US_32GB_SDHC_Memory_Card.html"]$32[/url] Anything you would change if you were starting at $1000? Also, should I even bother? Should I just wait to see the price/specs of the GH3? Thanks!
