Dreamy&poetry like images with GH4 + Iscomorphot 8 1.5x + SLR Magic 35 T1.4 & Helios 40-2

Recommended Posts

Earlier in anamorphic forum I asked advice for export options for my first anamorphic material shot with GH4. So here is the result from my shooting: 

 

After encoding to Vimeo, material looks a bit darker. Don't know why. Exported master file isn't as dark. Maybe it is because the h.264 encoding?

 

Please comment and share if you like, thanks! :)

I think it's gorgeous. I turned down the volume and played this to it ; 

 

Again, such eerie and beautiful footage. Great job!

Thanks for the comments!

 

It's always so exciting to see what happens with different music and sounds. It will have a whole different feeling and story going on with the music above.

Love the look! Btw you can compensate for the Vimeo darkening by lifting the overall mids of your master file by about 6% and then re-exporting.

Thanks Rungunshoot!

 

Oh, it's the Vimeo embedding / system that is darkening the image a bit? Have been thinking about that why it is like that. On my desktop files look okay but after upload I see that darkening. Thanks for the tip. Have to remember this in future.

Yes, Vimeo and Youtube mess with the gamma when re-encoding.  And they each do it slightly differently, so you just have to experiment a bit to find the gamma level that un-does the damage.

 

One thing you can do to preview different gamma levels is to play it back in VLC Player.  You can adjust gamma etc for your playback with their Video Filters tab.  More info:

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body

      FOR SALE: Moller 32/2x Anamorphot
      Anamorphic Adapter
      In Good Condition 6/10
      $500
      Cosmetic: 6
      Has scratches and wear on outer body. But none of the cosmetic imperfections affect the over-all lens performance. No dents or damage to the lens body that affect performance. The focus is a little stiff, but nothing a tune up and grease won’t fix. The front focus gear does need to be lubed, greased and the front element could be dialed in with a focus chart for sharper image. But the lens functions properly.   
      Optical: 7
      Has a scratch on the front element and cleaning marks on the rear element. It also has wear on the inner housing that gives veiling when hit with direct beam of light. I don’t have all of the equipment or time to tune up this lens but I can send tests shots if requested. 
       
      Notes:
      Very unique Moller 32/2x black non-coated version. Old lens with imperfections, but the imperfections of this lens make it very unique and give it a very unique character.
