    I repeat my assertion that Super 35 isn't going anywhere. Komodo is yet one more reason for thinking that.

    Vistavision is a valid complement to other formats, but has no practical use outside of...

    I had the idea once of using a stack of vintage filters. I have not yet done that, but it could be worth investigating. My hope was to get some kind of occasional veiling flare and so on. Here's one...

    No, and in fact the only manufacturer to try this stupid idea at one time was Canon. But thankfully I don't think they offer that as an option anymore. Some might disagree and that we should have the...

    Leica M10 Monochrom announced

    I think a lot of people underestimate monochrome sensors. The usual objection is that you don't need filters if you're shooting...

    One DP has been quoted as saying that the DXL2 is the best thing that they have ever seen. Why am I not surprised? ;-)

    Very 1980s!


    Lovely footage but you're right about the subtlety. ;-) I can't really tell if any filters were used at all.


    Excellent work. That's really well shot (and edited).

    The RF mount sounds limiting, but it's not as limiting as one would think. You can use M mount lenses with a short adapter. You couldn't do that on the Raven. You can also use almost any SLR lens as...
  11. A photographer's take on the Sirui 50mm 1.33x anamorphic lens for Micro 4/3

    There are three mirrorless mounts supported. I suspect that they will not bother with DSLR mounts. The price is about US$700.

    I *might* be able to help here. Apparently, AF lenses must be able to focus past infinity. There is a good reason for this but I can't recall it. In any case, maybe that's the problem? If it is, you...

    Now that's interesting. I wonder how a passive filter can suppress highlights. It's easy to understand how it can lift shadows, as it uses the incoming light to cause that.



    Now, that was...

    Yes, Fuji makes arguably the best cameras of its class, but Sony is my pick - but only just. Fuji makes the best bodies for sure. But I am somewhat invested in the E mount system (as well as the...

    That's a dramatic difference. It seems like 3 GPUs are the better option - adding a fourth doesn't seem like good value.

    Better late than never. I can't believe it took this fucking long to get this kind of thing done.
  18. Varicon & Panaflasher - analog noise reduction and curve control!

    Some time ago I recall reading about the Panavision Panaflasher - a light source placed in front of the lens to lift the base fog level, that works with both film and digital. It's like a low con but...

    I'd like to know what settings you're using with the 360 degree shutter. E.g. aperture, ISO.

    If ARRI manages to make a good S35 4K sensor, I will bet you that the Mini LF will not be so popular anymore. The LF Mini makes no sense, and it will make less sense in the future. The Monstro does,...
