Music Video shot in Bangkok with Sankor 16C

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just wanted to share my first video shot with an anamorphic adapter.

 

https://vimeo.com/65235134

 

This was an unplanned shoot which turned into a music video for a good friend of mine.

Shot on a 5D mark ii with a Sankor 16-C and a jupiter 85mm taking lens. All hand held with no rig (told you it was unplanned) I wish I had more lenses and a stabiser of some sort but thats how it goes. The content was pretty cool so I thought it needed to be cut together. Sometimes the best things to shoot happen when you least expect it!

 

Cheers,

 

Chris.

Thanks for comment Luke.
The only shot that was stablished was the opening shot which was shot from a taxi and was all over the place. The rest was just as shot. I just used the old strap round the neck trick. I had also had a few beers, maybe that's the secret!?

Looks really nice. I saw a deep DOF (in such low light conditions) without a noticeable noise. Would you share more about the camera settings (esp. ISO) and the lens aperture. Have you experienced any vignetting issues with the Jupiter?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for watching!

 

I tend to shoot with what are refered to as the "broken ISO's" in low light. For example 160,320,640 etc. I find that you get less noise on the 5D II this way. I did do a bit of noise reduction and levels boosting in After Effects on some shots though. But shooting at 640 ISO it wasnt really too bad.

As for the deep depth of field shots; these were created by increasing the distance between the camera and subject rather than stopping the lens down too much. (therefore not having to ramp the ISO up too high) I cant remember the exact settings but I would guess around f2.8 maybe f3.2 at a push.

 

You will get vignetting using this set-up, it becomes more noticable the more you stop the lens down. I found better results (much less vignetting) using my Kowa 8Z with the Jupiter. Wide open on the Sankor its not too bad, but anything past f8 ish and its pretty unusable.
