    Watch a movie.
    Watch commercial TV.

    Imo those two underexposed shots are unuseable because they don't intercut with the rest of the scene/footage, but you could still shoot that dark (like in Hrvoje's grades) if the surrounding shots...

    Watched the video.

    Sounds like you're dealing with the same issues as a lot of other current and former Adobe customers are, in terms of the business model and the software itself.

    Correct, the 5D with a Canon EOS mount can't use L39 (or Leica M) rangefinder lenses because those rangefinder lenses are meant to mount closer to the camera sensor than the EOS mount allows.

    You can use an adapter ring to go from L39 to M42 - eg. https://fotodioxpro.com/products/m39-m42

    I thought it looked great. I liked the muted colours and milky blacks, with a high level of detail/resolution. The distortion from the wide angle lens looked interesting too. Nice work overall imo.
