I wanna complete my audio kit and wondering about the best bet to do it for the cheapest price and the lessest gear. Could you advise me? My thoughts are: - I think it's is a wise idea to sometimes do two audio tracks separately as a one man band - just to be on the safe site - so need an extra recorder - I wanna buy the H5 or H6 because I can add a shotgun mic to it which makes me also able to boom with it. http://www.bax-shop.nl/shotgun-/-richtmicrofoon/zoom-sgh-6-shotgun-microfoon-voor-zoom-h6-handheld-recorder/product-details.html My kit now is : - Rode shotgun microfoon - Rode lavalier - Beachteck DXA-SLR Pro fieldmixer - Zoom H1 recorder used as a wireless broadcaster with Rode dasspeld - Samson G-Track (cardioÃ¯de) met PS01 pop filter (voice over) Wise or Stupid? Thank you for helping!
I've been looking for a suitable zoom lens to work behind an anamorphic. I stumbled upon the Olympus Pen-F 50-90 F3.5, which seems to have the right kind of DNA. Its a half frame lens so is suitable for mirrorless APSC and below. Its relatively fast, not too far away from the F2.8 pro standard and has a front optic about 40mm diameter and of course has a nice range of 50-90mm at constant F3.5 https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=olympus+50-90+f3.5&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=no-hU9L-DPSB7Qbds4CICA&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg&biw=1057&bih=524 I don't know if its par focal If anyone knows this lens I would appreciate details, and if you have used it behind an anamorphic please report your findings.
Hi Folks, I'm currently searching for a general purpose midrange zoom lense for video works on the canon 5d mark III. The main application will be to use it on my gimbal, which i was able to tune okay with the 100mm f/2.8 (620gr). What I have investigated so far - canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L II - canon 24-70mm f/4 L IS or - a used canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L Downside on the lenses is the focus breathing, and all of them are changing focus on zoom, which isn't such a big issue on the gimbal use. I'm not so sure if the IS is really necessary in that zoom range (and on the gimbal). My current favorite is the canon 24-70mm f/4 L IS, because of weight (600gr, f/2.8 L is 900gr) and not so much overall distortion. The other lenses already in the bag are: - EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM (impossible on gimbal ;)) - EF 100mm f/2.8 IS USM - EF 50mm f/1.8 II Any recommendations appreciated. And it doesn't need to be canon. thanx
Hi guys, Purely an academic question but I'm curious about this lens: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/LOMO-Arriflex-20-120mm-f-3-3-PL-Anamorphic-cinemascope-Panavision-Lens-RED-Arri-/121052730025?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item1c2f4e12a9 Ive been interested in anamorphic lenses for a fair while now but never pulled the trigger on buying one. I'm not planing on buying this one ether as its way beyond any price I could justify. But I was interested if any one had any info or opinions about it. Is it really an Arri lens? Wouldn't something like this solve the dual focusing issue that many lens + anamorphic adapter combinations have? Wouldn't it also solve the problem of chasing down an entire set of prime lenses? Whats that "1,2,3,4,5" Bit behind the aperture on the barrel all about? Is it an attractive option to you guys? (ignoring the price) Any thoughts...
