    Just my personal experience, Yeah, I'd just get the daylight versions (if they still make them, may have to get bi-color). I also have six apature MCs and they fill my RGB needs. BI don't have any...

    The longer the focal lenght the deeper the depth of focus, so the farther they have to move to achieve focus. That's why say on a tair 135 mm, the front moves way out when focusing. Compared to an...

    While on the subject,

    Since most simple cine lenses focus by moving the lens cell closer or farther away from the film plane, wouldn't it make sense that any 50mm lens with a 52mm FFD would...

    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.

    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.
