New lens for GH2 (Later Cinema Pocket)


subsequent

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I´m planning on buying a new lens to my GH2. I was planning on buying the 25mm Vöigthlander 0.95 prime, but now I'm not sure anymore. When the BMPCC is released this summer I'm planing to upgrade.

 

So the question is (with the 3x crop factor on the BMPCC) should I buy another lens? I´m open for suggestions.

Maybe some c-mount lenses instead? 

 

Please i need your advise on this decision.

Yeah, with the 17.5mm it will be a 52.2mm on the Pocket, if i got it right?

 

Maybe i will just save up for the 17.5mm then. Any concerns regarding this lens? 

 

Maybe Andrew can enlighten me on what he thinks about the BMPCC. You think it will be the GH2 "killer" ?

The 17.5mm will be around 35mm on GH2 and a bit over 50 on the Pocket - seems like a good investment.  Don't forget though, when thinking of crop factor - a lens is a lens.  A 50mm "equivalent" on a GH2 (25mm) will not look quite the same as a 50mm on a full frame.  A wide angle lens cropped to normal lens size will still have wide-angle characteristics.  I imagine this discrepancy will be more apparent on the Pocket.  Someone correct me if I am wrong.

      What are the best smartphone lenses out there and are there any decent optics tests online? I know brands like Moment lead the way (perhaps with their marketing) but are there better options for an iPhone 11? Looking for quality over price although of course when it comes down to it price will be a concern. Thanks.

      - PRICE: $599
      - STRETCH: 2X
      - FOCUS: Double-focus
      - PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal (fees to be paid after initial payment)
      - LOCATION: Switzerland
      - SHIPPING: Not included
      - INCLUDED: Redstan rear adapter with foot support and Redstan front clamp (value = $100).
      - CONDITION: No scratches and no fungus. Clean glass with the exception of a couple tiny spots on the rear glass. A couple of VERY light scratches that are only noticeable under a light source. Body shows some signs of wear but it works perfectly. Coatings are not flamboyant but the lens creates these signature purple/orange flares perfectly well. I wasn't able to get 1000% tack sharp images, so the lens might need to be serviced. It gives reasonably sharp results though, and my issue might actually come from my taking lens. Bought it from a fellow member of the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB and barely used it because of a decrease in filmmaking activity.
      - COMMENTS: I can send some footage via wetransfer. Open to offers.

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?
