Sigma ART Lens + GH4 4K + SLR Magic Anamorphot + Metabones Speedbooster

Recommended Posts

Testing out the new Metabones Speedbooster Canon EF -> m43.  Really loving it, and working with Sigma ART lenses it just sings!  I really want that shallow depth of field look, and it works a treat.  Of course it's really hard to focus at F1, worse using a vari-ND filter too (vignette and darkening of the corners at the highest setting).  Paired with the SLR Magic Anamorphot it has a great look!

@Stephen No diopters at all in this video, only using the "Near" setting on the Anamorphot.  Would have been sharper if I did use them though.  I'll do that next time.  The 30mm has the best look, but they all focus close.  The 50mm might be the least minimum distance, but not by much.  It was however the hardest to focus under F2.8 that's for sure.

@Ken GH4 minimum ISO is 200 in video mode.  Yes the Speedbooster is brighter by 1 stop, improves DOF by 1 stop as well.  The lens is at F1.4, with Speedbooster it's F1.0.  So the Tiffen Vari-ND filter is almost at maximum, but you can see the vigenette is heavy.  Besides, it's not really practical to shoot at F1.0.  I had a really hard time focusing because I could barely see with so much ND.

      - PRICE: $599
      - STRETCH: 2X
      - FOCUS: Double-focus
      - PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal (fees to be paid after initial payment)
      - LOCATION: Switzerland
      - SHIPPING: Not included
      - INCLUDED: Redstan rear adapter with foot support and Redstan front clamp (value = $100).
      - CONDITION: No scratches and no fungus. Clean glass with the exception of a couple tiny spots on the rear glass. A couple of VERY light scratches that are only noticeable under a light source. Body shows some signs of wear but it works perfectly. Coatings are not flamboyant but the lens creates these signature purple/orange flares perfectly well. I wasn't able to get 1000% tack sharp images, so the lens might need to be serviced. It gives reasonably sharp results though, and my issue might actually come from my taking lens. Bought it from a fellow member of the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB and barely used it because of a decrease in filmmaking activity.
      - COMMENTS: I can send some footage via wetransfer. Open to offers.
