Shooting JPG MOV anamorphic 2.66

Francisco Rios

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help with these issue.
I shot in JPG MOV 30p 4:3 with anamorphic Moller 2X in Black and white.
Now I want to convert 29.97 to 23.97 .
I used compressor to do that task, but the blacks get crushed. To fix that I set in compressor a gamma correction. The original setting is 1,0 and I drop it to 0,86. On that way the picture stay very similar to original.
Does anyone else know how to handle in a better way these issue?
Best regards.

Maybe, I don't really know on these case with JPG Move. I really like to shoot in black and white, and if you have a location with just the local light, probably you will need to boost iso, that means to boost also electronic noise.
Without color you get less noise.
Here's the explanation:

Well I don't have a better workflow for you unfortunately. But I am wondering why you choose to shoot in JPG Move at 30p and converting instead of just shooting 24p in AVCHD? The clip looks really nice by the way. :-) I'm not sure if I've ever seen black and what footage shot in anamorphic? I usually think of all those cool 60's and 70's moves instead but this is really quite cool instead. It's kind of a new thing for me. ;-)

Thanks for the comments Galenb,
I shot with JPGMOV because I wanted a 2.66 aspect ratio. In avchd mode I get 3.55 ratio like the train's video.
That extrem aspect is really beautiful but I also want to get 2.66.
I don't like 30p and with JPG you can't shoot in 24p.
So I did the conversion, I think it works...
Best regards.

These is my first and unique test with anamorphic shot with gh2 in JPGmov, black and white. Then I did the conversion 30p to 24p.

These below are in 24p avchd with eoshd intra frame patch



All done with Moller anamorphic lens 2x.
Best regards.

      Hi everyone!
      I wanted to showcase my passion project "The Night Knows No Shore" here on EOSHD. I've been a long time reader of Andrew's blog and it was his footage that inspired me to get an Iscorama a long time ago. 
      After doing tests with it for a while I came up with this idea for a movie. And you can now see the result on youtube: 
      It's a project made by one single actor and one single crew member (me) with one single focal length (a Canon FD 85mm 1.8) and one single focus anamorphic lens ( Iscorama pre-36). Don't expect much action. It's a slow film with lots of monologues and no real plot. It's about one young man's thoughts on society, religion, art, philosophy, life in general. Have a look. If you don't like all the "pretentious" talking, maybe you like the footage. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions, just ask. Enjoy!

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body
      - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal
      - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA

      Please PM me if interested
