  1. I'm really considering making a big upgrade to the URSA, but I've already invested in a fleet of Canon FDs. I've been doing some research on FD to PL mounts without a lot of luck. I know ARRI make an FD adapter to the ARRI mount (PL??) but besides that seems there's zilch out there. Some talk about machining the lenses to fit the new flange but I was hoping someone here knows of something...
  2. Hello! Tried to sell my F3 a while ago, but at the time wanted to get enough to buy a suitable replacement camera. This time, due to a change in work, I don't care about replacing my F3 with anything else just yet. It is in mint condition with under 800hrs, comes with batteries, media, and bag/case. Imgur album here: http://imgur.com/a/smLRi I originally paid $3k for the F3, $1k for the Gemini, batteries for ~$300ea, plus all other accessories separately. In addition to the pics, I managed to pick up a loupe that fastens to the flip-out LCD on the F3. If you or someone you know is looking for a good workhorse of a 1080 camera with uncompressed log capabilities, please fire me a message with what you think is a reasonable price.
  3. Selling my 7mnth old A6300 + Adapter + Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD Lens and a smallrig cage to go with it. Only about 3-4K shutter actuations. Mint condition will include original box and 3yr extended warranty via Squaretrade. Also includes a set of Chris Engall Button Enhancers. Need to sell immediately. Payments ONLY via PayPal and I'd prefer to ship within the US only, but will consider international. Asking price is $950 for everything. Shipping not included and will be determined based on buyer location. Willing to negotiate, please DM for more info or email [email protected]
  4. We all know the cheap ones. Simple mount with a really bad optic. Is there no way at all to make or create an adapter for less than the canon telephoto original adapter at around $699 I just can't believe this is so. I mean a simple telephoto adapter with a secondary achromatic element behind it ought to work to clean up and telephoto the image enough for an FD to EF adapter. Is it just that difficult to get decent glass for a good price? Overview I am attempting to create and research an FD to EF adapter that does not have horribly unusable chromatic aberration. Testing including test shots at different apertures and comparison in lightroom. I will be publishing my findings here and possibly flickr. If you are interested message me, I would love to build a team willing to research and experiment with the project. Otherwise follow along, feel free to try it yourself and post your findings or send them to me directly if you like. Im not looking to profit here. Feel free to learn from what i'm doing here and do so yourself, id just appreciate credit. While mass manufacture is an option, I currently dont have the infrastructure to support it within my company. Id rather focus more on taking pictures and video than manufacture profit although if the opportunity presents itself I may jump at it. 5d Mark II - Testing camera Canon 50mm f1.8 FD - Testing lens 3d printer for light manufacturing. preliminary dioptric research done measurements of cheap fd adapter recorded Update - 09-15 Nominal Success in adapting rear lensing element from Canon 28-80mm f2.8 wide angle telephoto lens Effective focus distance 2-3 feet depending on fstop (f2.8-f22 examples below) Spurned by this success I am looking for lenses, broken, as is, no longer working etc. 35mm 50mm 85mm 135mm Canon preferably, I mean lets keep it in the family if possible. *note - results gained so far are with the Canon 28-80mm. Going to start work with fixed lenses and if needed ill use telescopic. General Progress Completed Successs! It works, this should be possible for less than the old Canon FD to EF adapter There should be no reason this cant be done cheaply either for other lenses or simply just the FD lenses without significant chromatic aberration Initial test pictures and examination in lightroom (I felt that CaptureOne was a bit cheating since their sharpening algorithms are so good) To Do --Find a rear lensing optic that fits Acquire Lenses - Minimal Chromatic Aberration - Minimal vignetting --Test for minimal chromatic aberration and quality Acquire test target --Test lenses (acquire) Fixed FD lenses Telephoto FD Lenses Wide Angle FD lenses (under 35mm) Comparison Pictures Shot with Canon 5d Mark II FD to EF Adapter - Cheap 28-80mm Canon f2.8 rear lensing element dioptric/telescopic value unknown, working on researching how to figure this out A usable F2.8 F8 F22 F22 - Example for detail comparison around edges Ill try to keep this updated as I go if theres enough interest, otherwise I may shift focus to a different forum.

  7. https://vimeo.com/55892502   I posted this over in the screening room, but I wanted to show all the anamorphic guys and gals as well.    Lots of fun and really easy to make this one:)   Trey
  8. Just did some lens tests with the GH3 vs GH2 w/ Flow Motion v2.02 hack.  Information below:   GH2 vs GH3 Night Lens Test Panasonic GH2 w/ Flow Motion v2.02 Hack, Vivid -2,-2,-2,-2 Panasonic GH3, Vivid -3,-5,-4,-5 Lenses used: Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm F1.4 Canon FD 50mm F1.2L Canon FD 85mm F1.2L Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8 Perspective is different even though I used them on the same tripod.  GH2 is 1.86x sensor crop, GH3 is 2x sensor crop.   In very dark situations the GH3 is noticeably brighter, about 2/3 of a stop.  I tried to compensate by making the GH2 1 stop ISO brighter.  But by doing so makes the GH2 have more noise and have "milky" blacks.  Color correction is very difficult with the GH2 even with the hack.  The GH3 does much better in this regard, although detail might be a little lower.   http://youtu.be/KM_6ZKCFuPs   http://youtu.be/6pwNZxfa1uM   http://youtu.be/_UK0Ck7jQbM
  9. On top of my low light high ISO tests I also tested my Sankor Anamorphic 2x lens.  One thing I really learned is that anamorphics need to be focused at a specific distance to get the desired effect.  Of course I only realize this after I do this, so I'll try and do another test later.  Focus is very difficult, next time I'll bring an external monitor.  The 100mm Macro surprisingly was the most difficult to focus.  I think it has a much shallower depth of field than either of the FD 1.2L lenses.   http://youtu.be/U5Oh-IBFZyY   http://youtu.be/eL0HesvFrPc   http://youtu.be/zEk-7OEkVAU   http://youtu.be/ZaRwD_L0n-g   Out of all these tests it's clear that there are limitations with both cameras.  Here are some notes:   - EX TELE mode is much improved on the GH3.  There is more detail and less noise, although it is still very noisy.  Not sure I can call it "grain" but if you really need to use it you can.  But I would still go with a prime over EX TELE mode, even if it is a great lens like the Leica 25mm.  GH2 clearly is bad in EX TELE mode, worse in very low light - Detail is excellent for both cameras.  I still think the GH2 has more but only by a little.  Again focusing is critical. - GH3 clearly has more dynamic range and retains more details especially in the shadows.  The last video you can see more tiles in the shadows at the left of the image. - GH3 can shoot more flat and retain more color detail too.  The last video I upped the saturation to 150% to match the GH2.  You can't go far at all with the GH2, it is so baked into the codec. - GH3 is 2/3 of a stop brighter at high ISOs.  However the codec isn't great for low light.  I think the 50Mbits IPB is better than the 72Mbits All-I for low light.  Just the noise grain is better and easier to remove.  In bright conditions they are about the same.   I prefer the GH3 over the GH2 for usability and for the image.  I'll still use my GH2s because they are still very stellar cameras.  But I think there are many improvements in the GH3 that overall make it a better camera.
