    If you want a small hard light source to sculpt just a portion of the face or object, then there’s nothing better than a Dedolight. Either a 150w Classic tungsten or one of the newer LED versions. If...

    If you want to rent out or sell your lens set, then the 35mm would complete a normal S35 prime lens set - 15, 25, 35, 50, 85mm is standard. 15, 25, 50, 85, 135mm is not, so you might struggle to get...

    The rubber hoods that I have used are screw-in, so you have to unscrew it to swap filters, then screw the shade back on. Also, I have noticed that the ones that are expandable tend to tear on the...

    Thanks! These are all Contax Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 or 50mm f/1.4 + Iscorama 36, except for the last 4 which are Cooke Speed Panchros + Iscorama 36. You can see that the Cookes are much lower contrast and...

    Here's what I mean about the 'bubble' distortion, where the center of the frame bulges forward and the edges recede:

    As far as I’m aware, there is no auto CA fix for motion picture footage like there is for stills. Other than CAC for 2/3” broadcast cameras. But with tracked power windows in color grading, it can be...

    I guess we will have to agree to disagree then! In the right context, I think anamorphic barrel distortion and the protruding ‘bubble’ really adds to the impression of depth and the sense of...

    Again, I agree. The Ultras, S4s, and Primos are the first ‘modern’ lens sets. I’m pretty happy with the footage I’ve shot on Ultras, but they do not have a distinct personality. I think they work...

    Honestly, this is a perfect use case for autofocus, as it exists on Canon C series cameras and the new Sony FX9.

    I think you’ll find that at T2 on a S35 sensor size and at normal Steadicam working...

    I agree with you, I think lenses with modern highly corrected designs don’t look right when you just change the coatings. You have two clashing looks that don’t mesh aesthetically. The older classic...

    It all comes down to personal taste. There is no objective right answer, only what looks good to you.

    That said, I think a lot of common tastes come from our shared enjoyment of what has come...

    For some, they may just be chasing the vintage trend. When the season turns, they may look elsewhere. But I think many people specifically don’t want sharpness and clarity. Instead they want...

    Ah, well thank you for the compliment, but I don’t deserve it. Just another journeyman DP like most here, expressing my opinion. I wouldn’t put any special stock in it!

    Yes, but the topic was about how good the camera sensor-level autofocus has become. Cinetape has a lot more limitations, being based on ultrasound. I stopped pulling focus before the Light Ranger 2...

    Alternately, you could go with the Gemini and keep using the C200 for the brutal run-and-gun doc work. Sometimes you might not want to put a $20K-ish camera into those situations.
