Great shots Sebastien, like all what you have been sharing. Btw, how do you manage to focus handheld so well ?

 

Thanks araucaria ! Focus is not easy, especially on full frame Sony A7, I'm used to work on M43... I can use the focus assist on the A7 while filming, which is a plus. Sometimes the technique in anamorphic is keeping the same distance between me and my focused subject in motion, in a handled traveling for example).

Absolutely gorgeous!     I must try this some time with my A7, however, I only have the 8/19/1.5 so I imagine I'll need a pretty long taking lens.

 

Thanks OzNimbus :) I really don't know what lens you need with the 8/19/1.5... For the 16/32/1.5 the minimum is 50mm on FF. Maybe you'll need a 85mm, or a little less, as i do for my baby Hypergonar.

I am so Intrigued by the Sony A7 as my camera for stills but the price (1300EUR) compared to a used Mark II for 900 EUR gives me a hard time to decide. I love the RAW files of the A7 but the video-mode, as Andrew recently posted, is a major let down. 

And, Mark II would be RAW with the possibility of a correct live-view of an anamorphic setup. 
And I might be afraid the Sony is cause of its size just to small for a Helios and Isco for example... 

 

But I really like that compact setup Sebastian. Its really nice. How difficult is it for you to judge regarding focus?

As Andrew said, I think The Mark II look like a dinosaur compare to this new generation of hybrid camera, such as the Sony A7.

I'm not so unhappy with the video mode of the Sony A7. I don't know if you watch my "One week with Sony A7 + Bolex" on my Vimeo, but the 24P mode looks good to me, despite aliasing problems... Anyway it has less problems than my OMD E-M5.

 

I'm shooting images with it today, with the new SLR Magic Anamorphot, stay tune, soon online! ;)

The Mark II might be a dinosaur, but its still a decent performer video- and stillswise. If the A7 would have that amazing IS of the OMD, I wouldnt think about it for one second. Its really a tough decision. The A7 would be 400EUR (!) cheaper in Tokyo but when I was there in december they had no international models yet. 

Mhhh... anyways... if that anamorphic displaying at the Mark II works and I do have a peaking that would sound like an ideal run and gun setup. Though I hate the fact that you cant tilt the screen. 

ahhh... thx sebastien for the pics. Looking good!

Ah a talented filmmaker! There's some great stuff in here and i love the warmth and feel of the piece (beyond just how it looks). I'm still not keen on the flare but I think that's always going to be a personal preference - for me it just doesn't have a place in something that's more a drama or documentary - unless it's there to represent something. I've got a Century that does me just fine so I'll stick with that for now - but the SLR Magic is a more interesting space to watch now. Does the LA7200 still offer the possibility of a wider taking lens - if it does then perhaps all of the lenses can sit together in one bit 1.33 happy family.

 

Thanks Dave :) As far as I know the LA7200 goes from 17mm and the SLR 20mm... So the difference is not important.

      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!
