Okay, three lenses in the mix and a rented GH5 in 8bit 100mbps natural profile. FD 28 and 100, both stellar lenses, and a fun slr magic 12mm. all lenses shot at f4 and 800iso. Trailer is for my shortfilm I shot end of august. Trailer is for the soundguy, so he gets a feel before rough cut is finished.. I really like the cam and the FDs on a focalreducer. I think with a 28 and a 100 on a focal reducer you are set. Might put up a PW. It will be boxcar.

 

The color looks incredible !

Thanks you! This coming from you is very exiting! Thanks a lot, my friend! I am very exited about the GH5. Not mine though. I only rented it. Also, these Canon FDs are something I cannot praise about enough. The 100mm is even more amazing in its visual splendor. But the 28 on S35 booster is amazing too. I shot at 8bit only, 100mbps HD, natural profile with contrast at 0, color-2. Even though I put sharpness all the way down to -5 it is still too sharp for my eyes. I think some kidzrevils lensing and filter skills are needed for this camera. Deezid of this forum has stated that only the 6K mode allows your to turn sharpening off completely. I assume V Log should come very close to it.

I loved the canon FD lenses honestly. The color’s are so warm and the contrast is perfect on low dynamic range cameras ! The only reason I haven’t invested in them again is because there was no speedbooster xl for them ! The Canon FD L series of lenses were the best to me as well as the 35mm f2 ssc @PannySVHS 

Have you tried the tiffen black diffusion fx ?

I’m exaggerating a little... but not by much... sadly. Good news is, it’s a blast trying to sell a bunch of lenses nobody wants. 

Was sorta hoping you weren't joking, would've made me feel less bad about my own buy & try behaviour over the last years in search of the holy grail look. :lol:

Well this opens up a few more options for the GH5.

Didn't you know about that yet? The ciecio7 adapters used to be very popular (and maybe they are still... things seem to have quiet down since the GH2, BMPCC & GH4 days).

Another well-regarded mount adapter maker (mostly Russian stuff like Kiev-16U, OCT-19, OCT-18, ...):

Unfortunately, I wasn’t joking all that much... I easily have 60 lenses. But probably more like 75. The sad part is that I bought lenses that I’ve never bought adapters for. I have some brand new Yashica lenses that I only took out of the box to look at. In the spring, I spent over an hour filing down the edges of an M43 to Micro 4/3 adapter so I could mount my Olympus FTL lenses onto the GX85 without filing down the dreaded pin on the mount. I then proceeded to never mount the lens onto a camera... LOL. And now I’m selling my set of Olympus M42 lenses... which is kind of sad because they were made with a smooth, declicked aperture ring... but I don’t use them, so they really gotta go.

Ah, so we do have enough in common to attend LAS meetings. :sweat_smile: The never ending quest to find the holy grail look (if you're a bit of an audiosnob, it's comparable to searching for that perfect audiosignature; as it happens to be I don't particularly have a single set of IEMs/headphones either, lol). Well, I have like 35 native M43 lenses alone, add tons of Nikon mount lenses (be it Nikkor, Sigma, Tokina or Vivitar for example), quite a few Contax Zeiss primes to make a set, only 2 Leica Summicron-R primes and a boatload of older really vintage stuff, like all the Russians and other quirky lenses in M42 mount, FD zooms and primes, Pentax-M, Minolta MD and a bunch of C-mounts or other stuff... and it's fair to say it might've gotten just a tiny bit out of hand. Good call on shrinking the collection, will probably follow your lead before I do a country swap and move 1000+ km away. Moving away is always a nice excuse to finally get rid of some stuff that doesn't necessarily enriches your life. :tounge:

On its own, it’s a lovely look, like golden coins suspended in air, but it’s competing for our attention with the in-focus snow-covered bicycle in the foreground. By f/2, the effect all but disappears - so if the photographer feels the look is distracting, they can always stop down the lens.

This is of course a crop of a much larger image and the bicycle is supposed to be the main subject.

I'm still not overly fond of that hard-edged bokeh, but different strokes for different folks. Waiting to hear back from John Barlow re: the Rectilux and also trying to track down a fellow here in Vietnam who can make a clamp for me. All of which has me thinking it's not going to fly... And again, even if I got John to ship me the Rectilux, it's gonna run into thousands of dollars all told... Nevertheless, here's a fellow who shot with the Kowa 8-z and a Nikkor-H without a diopter. GH5. No teal and orange bullshit. No Super 35. No RAW. Just beautiful lensing. hehe

@Cinegain The Optikovs look great - sharp as heck, brilliant oval bokeh - but next to impossible to find anything concrete online. Works of art that would not be out of place in a museum. Maybe only available for rental. Precious little information.

Edit: As of March of this year, there was only one set in the USA.

The polaroid in this ad looks so much better than the ad itself. That´s the highly suggestive power of exellent colorwork. Polaroids can indeed provide some exellent color. I have a few large format ones, really looking awesome. Great find and compliment. Thank you!

      I'm looking to swap my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses for the equivalent Canon mountable Zeiss ZE lenses.
      Each of my lenses comes with 16:9 adaptors (which adapt the lenses to EF bodies, with de-clicked aperture and AF confirmation). 
      I have the following ZF.2 lenses: 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/2.0 (Makro Planar), 100mm f/1.4 (Makro Planar).

      I'm really considering making a big upgrade to the URSA, but I've already invested in a fleet of Canon FDs. I've been doing some research on FD to PL mounts without a lot of luck. I know ARRI make an FD adapter to the ARRI mount (PL??) but besides that seems there's zilch out there. Some talk about machining the lenses to fit the new flange but I was hoping someone here knows of something...
