LA7200 Anamorphic Western

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

Just wanted to share a little anamorphic western I did a couple years ago. Finally finished put it online.

 

 

Camera used was an unhacked GH1 (yea, I shot it a while ago)

LA7200, used mostly a 24mm nikon

 

Graded in davinchi

Ran it through Dark Energy and cleaned it up most of the GH1 compression noise.

 

It was a while ago, but I watch it on the big screen at a festival and I think it looked great.

Thanks!

 

Dark Energy is a texture management software. We've got it at my dayjob and I applied it to the image final sequence.

Process was: degrain and remove a bunch of compression crap, sharpen, add grain back in. It's sound redundant, but works great. I wanted to rough up the shots and give it a bit of grunge.

Not really.  The noise in digital footage looks bad.  It's based on a fixed grid.  It's ugly.  Remove that junk and add a little bit of organic, analog looking noise (especially if it's based on actual scanned material and not something like that horrible "grain" effect in After Effects) and you improve the aesthetic and smooth over a lot of sin caused by compressed 8-bit imagery.

      Hi guys,
      Found this packed away in the loft. Haven't used it in years. Open to offers, UK only please.
      Cheers

      Trying to understand / fix the LA7200 to make it clearer, less CA, sharper and more usable. Building a lens from other lenses to attempt to do this.
       
      In any case, im trying to understand what is causing the issues in general using the LA7200 on DSLR or Blackmagic cinema camera.

      Is it because of the sensor cropping then? The LA7200 was designed for a 4:3 sensor crop therefore it will not work correctly on the BMCC, or larger sensors?
       
      Or is it simply a design flaw overall of the LA7200 , poor lens design / poor coating
       
      If it is a crop sensor issue, what is happening on the LA7200 to cause issues because the sensors are larger crop.
       
      Is the back lens element simply too small, where the image is being projected against the taking lens too small therefore when desqueezed you see parts of the image you really should not? i.e. the taking lens and the sensor is capturing too much of the la7200?

      By adding a diopter behind it does that then, make it larger i.e. projects less of what is seen from the front of the la7200 to the sensor?

      Or is it more complex than this.

      I have tried using a diopter behind the LA7200 i think its a Tokina 0.5 Not sure. I mean it says No 0.05 so I dont know at this point. In any case it does not seem to help.

      Just trying to understand, thanks anyone that can help.

      I have a question regarding the LA7200, basically in order to focus you would to move the back lens element or front. Would that be correct? Would it be possible to allow focus by adding another lens element behind the flat back lens element. Not sure how the image is presented by the square back of the LA7200.

      Im currently in the process of modifying it and frankensteining the lens with old junked vintage lenses to make it one whole lens that does not need a taking lens. Just want to make sure I have the physics right.

      Thanks in advance.

      Hey guys,

      First time poster here....So I am diving into all of these diopter possibilities for a thesis film I have to shoot. I recently purchased the BMPC 4K camera, the tokina 11-16mms and the panasonic LA7200 (Mostly based on advice and research from this site given my modest budget)

      But I can't seem to find any recent info for diopters. I know of the rare LOMO as per the guide but can't find it. I know of the Cinetatctics hood, but the diopter solution is evading me. Even watching eyepatch's guide doesn't seem to give recent info. 

      I'm still pretty green when it comes to diopters so any help would be much appreciated- thanks guys!
