Hi everyone, thanks for the heads up !

 

This is the first video I shot with a G6, I just made the switch from Canon DSLR's, but wanted the extra resolution that Pana's have.  Only other options to get this with Canon is with the 5D MkIII or C100 (which are out of budget at the moment).  

I already had a few FD's I used on my Sony Nex, so all I needed to really make the switch to Panasonic was a wide angle.  Thanks to Andy I got the Pentax 110 18 f2.8, but it doesn't focus to infinity without lowering the aperture.

 

So I got a Pana 14 f2.5 2 days before the shoot that I used for all the Steadicam shots.  I used a Steadicam JR for this video.  All other footage was shot with Canon FD's : depending on the shot, a 24 f2.8, 50 f1.4 or 35-70 f4.

 

I use a standard FD adapter from ebay, like this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-FD-FL-Lens-To-Micro-4-3-M43-M4-3-Adapter-GF1-GF2-GH2-GF2-GH2-G2-G3-DC156-/191039302526?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item2c7ad46b7e.  No play at all.

 

Edit was done in FCP7, grading with the built-in Colour Corrector 3-way.  Grading was fairly minimal anyway, as I shot everything with a grey card and manual white balance and tried to shoot more or less the way I wanted the final result to look.

 

Location for the sunny outdoor shots was the French Riviera, in and round Nice, near the Italian border.
