    Shims aren't changing the parfocalness of the lens, just adjusting back focus. One would hope they come correctly calibrated from the factory. Make sure your camera has it's FFD set correctly or you...

    I would think the MX would be noisy as hell at 3200 iso. Is that the look you are going for?

    Was it your camera? My point is if it's not yours, you have no idea how it's been treated.

    Just for the record, I owned two epic dragons, never had a problem with them. I just wrapped a feature in FL about 3 weeks ago. Some of the most awful conditions I have ever worked in. Ever. I have...

    It's mainly a matter of taste, but I like the color out of the box better on Gemini, just feels more natural. To quote a DIT nerd friend "The pixels are more gooder on Gemini". It certainly is nice...

    I tend to use a 135mm and extension bellows when I need to get extremely close. The challenge is in finding the sweet spot in iris where you have useable DOF, but aren't killing your image with...

    Supers and standards don't cover any of the biggerish formats like 6k dragon, and 5k gemini, I think that has a lot to do with their loss in popularity. And to be honest, I never liked them very much...

    I've done this with an 8x10 camera. Your biggest challenge is the ground glass. Noticeable grain, extreme light fall off. If you like that, then great. There are solutions to this however.

    Just to be that old guy.... Easy rigs are fucking dumb. The only thing they are good for is if you have to stand in the same place forever shooting hand held. By definition, that is a dumb shot. The...
