  1. I imagine people here are going to be wary of buying considering certain recent events on the forum, but you can confirm my authenticity easily as my video company is well established online (just Google "Lintelfilm") and I'm happy to Skype etc if anyone has questions. I'd prefer to sell to UK but am open to offers from elsewhere, and preferably only to regular forum members. Postage not included but will be charged at cost. My name is Matt - I haven't hung out here for a while but older forum members will remember me (probably mainly from my various unnecessary spats with Mr Reid!). Andy Lee
  2. ...and a Speedbooster! I'm trying to wrap my head around what the mathematical formula must be to gauge how wide/zoomed lenses will be on a GH4 with a Speedbooster. What I know so far: - Shooting 4K, the crop is 2.3 - Shooting 1080, crop is 2.0 - Metabones Speed Booster lessens crop by 0.71 - Generic Speed Boosters lessen crop by 0.72 Is the math: " FF LENS x CROP x BOOSTER ="? or for a 18mm lens: 18mm [Lens] x 2.3 [4K Crop] x 0.72 [Metabones] = A 29.808mm lens equivalent? To make matters more confusing to me, that only covers full frame lenses, so how do we determin
  3. Hello everyone, My name is Gleb, I'm starting a production company to shoot feature films, and commercials / music videos on the way before that. For my camera package for the first 2-3 feature films I'm going to buy GH4 as the camera body (Now have 2xGH3), and after I will have a transition to BMPC 4K and then to RED Scarlet / Epic Now I own a speed booster alternative RJ speed booster (Nikon mount) And was thinking about the idea of buying a full Rokinon cinema lenses set (Nikon mount) Than use it on the RED scarlet before buying better primes, but than I will not be able to have
  4. Hi guys, I was just having a look on b&h at the ef to bmpcc speed boosters and found two different versions listed: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1064603-REG/metabones_mb_spef_bmpcc_bm1_canon_ef_to_bmpcc.html and http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1174582-REG/metabones_mb_spef_bmpcc_bt1_metabones_canon_ef_lens.html I was just wondering if anyone knows what the 'T' in the second link means? Is it an updated version? Thanks.
  5. Hi, I´m using a Sigma 18-35 1.8 with a Metabones Speed Booster on my BMPCC. What I noticed is that the left side of the image isn´t perfectly in focus while the right side is spot-on. If I try to get the left side as sharp as possible, the middle of the picture and the right side will be slightly out of focus. Please take a look at the pictures below. Notice how the very left side seems to be quite blurry, while the right side isn´t that bad. The aperture was 2.5. '> '> I´ve tried two Sigma 18-35 and two different Speed Boosters, but the results were exactly the same. H
  6. Hello! I recently picked up a GH3 and am wondering what lens setup to purchase. I have done some research and am thinking about these two options. 1. Metabones Speedbooster with a Sigma 30mm 1.4 II (Nikon Mount) as I had the old Sigma 30mm 1.4 on my 550D and loved it! 2. Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 and the SLR Magic 12mm f1.6. Would love to know what you guys think! Thanks :)
  7. Here is a movie done with the SLR Magic Anamorphot 50, a 1.33X anamorphic lens. All the details are subtitled in the movie, here are the material : SLR Magic Anamorphot 50, 1.33X anamorphic lens 1-On Sony A7 with Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8 pancake lens 2-On Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Nikon E Serie 50mm f1.8 pancake lens and Lumix 20mm pancake lens Some of the shots done with the focal reducer TurboLens, a cheaper version of the SpeedBooster Some of the shot done with SLR Magic achromatic diopters (0.33X and 1.3X) and Tokina 0.5X diopter ND variable filter No color correction
  8. I am not interested in that product anymore! Check this video and you will understand why: The Aputure Smart Lens Adapter Controller: Andrew, thanks for the many useful information, and your devotion! Regards from Budapest...
  9. This is old news that some may not have figured out. The speed boosters for the APS-C and M43 both use the same magnification of 0.71x despite the difference in crop factor. This means a 35mm lens adapter with speed booster will work out as: 35 * 0.71 = 24.85 For APS-C: 24.85 * 1.5 = 37.275mm For M43: 24.85 * 2 = 49.7mm This essentially means that on Micro Four Thirds, lenses adapted with speed booster end up close to the focal length if you were to just attach the lens to an APS-C camera (because a 35mm lens on APS-C becomes 52.5mm once you calculate the 1.5x crop). Granted you

  11. Last week I finished a short film that we shot on the GH3 with the Speed Booster. I thought it's maybe interesting for you guys to hear and see how it holds up in the field. At first I received a faulty Speed Booster, but the 2nd one worked great. It feels solid and well designed, although there is a little 'play' on the camera mount side. Nothing to worry about though. It makes my lenses wider and better. There is some purple fringing though at low light shots when pointing at a light source, but this is only at very large apertures. The lenses are perfectly usable at high apertures in 'n

  14. Went out last night and had an amazing time at a place called Bungalow in Santa Monica. Brought my NEX-5n with an old Nikon 50mm f1.4 AIS lens and the Metabones Speed Booster.  It was DARK in that place, but the Speed Booster made me feel invincible.   https://vimeo.com/60971352
  15. Hi, just wanted to start a topic about using 3rd party lenses with the Metabones Speed Booster.  Their website warns about the possibility of some lenses having protruding rear elements that could scratch the adapter or short out the electrical connections.   I don't yet own any EF lenses, so I'm currently using a Rainbow Imaging Nikon to EF adapter.  The lenses I've tried with this are:   - 50mm f/1.8 pancake (all manual)   - 24mm f/2 AIS (all manual)   Camera is a Sony NEX-5n.   After my first day of trials, this combo works fine.  My caveats
