Hi all, I am selling my lovely Digital Bolex kit. It took me awhile to put it together and get it ready for the big show, so I would like to send it to a good home. Optimally, I would be able to send both the camera kit and the lens kit together, but I am willing to separate the 2. The Cooke zoom can be separated from the Super Speed prime set, but that prime set cannot be broken apart. *Camera Kit* Digital Bolex D16 2TB Native C-Mount Native m4/3 mount PL to M4/3 Adapter Zeiss CP.2 shims to shim the PL adapter for accurate focus Customized Rubber Skin Assorted Side Panels (Different Colours) Shark Hood Monitor Mirror Pistol Grip With Record Trigger USB Cord XLR - D-tap coiled power cord XLR - AC power cord Trigger Cover *Lens Kit* 3 Arri B - PL adapters Cooke Varokinetal 9-50mm T2.5 Cine Zoom (Covers 16mm sized sensor but can be adapted to s16 size image circle with Abakus adapter --not included but I can point you in the direction to acquire) Zeiss S16 Super Speed T1.3 Prime Kit (0.6x Aspheron, 9.5mm, low contrast 12mm with rear optic coating removed to fix excessive cleaning marks, 16mm, 25mm) with vintage metal case. If you are in Canada, I might be able to send you 2x 130wh Gold Mount broadcast batteries via ground shipping too. They make that 2TB Bolex an all-day monster. Feel free to PM me for any inquiries such as price and condition of items etc...
I noticed Jupiter Ascending used Leica lenses. After a little research I found this: http://www.hurlbutvisuals.com/blog/2014/03/why-do-we-want-flat-glass/ The Cooke has distortion and less pleasing bokeh (only 5 blades), however it just looks better ("3D"). Testing cameras and lenses against each other is a useful exercise. I've been testing the GH4 against the A7S in studio lighting and the GH4 is looking better, especially in skintones. I had tweaked the A7S to look similar to the 5D3 and thought it looked pretty good until I did the same with the GH4. Under studio lighting, the GH4 produces nicer skintones and a cleaner image (+ 4K!). In December the Atomos Shogun will bring 4K to the A7S, however the GH4 will get 10-bit 422 4K at the same time (vs. 8-bit for the A7S).
