    I agree with all of that, except I don't think digital looks like S16. Although a 1080p Alexa crop gets very close and Red cropped footage gets close, too, maybe I'm wrong.

    And I find the Arri...

    I take it you're not a big Alexa fan?

    What about S16 film?

    I agree in theory. I remember trying out the Sigma DP2. 15 megapixels feels like a lot more when it's oversampled that much. Shot...

    I think this is the cinematography text at USC and most other major film schools:

    For me, 35mm for sure.

    Vintage Cooke focal lengths if I remember right are 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75. Arri Mk 2 is 16, 24, 32, 40, 50, 85. Schneider 18, 28, 35, 40, 50, 75. (Too big a gap with...
  8. [WTB] Schneider Cine-Xenon 35mm, 75mm in Arri Standard Mount

    Not in a rush, but if someone has these and doesn't need them, I'm trying to complete a set. Non-rehoused only please. Looking for late serials.

    Also, if someone has a 16mm t2.4 Mk1 Zeiss standard...

    Very interesting... I have never tried the Lomo super speeds. Seems they are now worth a lot. Never used Kinoptiks except the Tegea, which is soft but with no visible distortion and has a similar...

    Of course the other unaddressed factor is mechanics. Recently started working with some Mk1 standard speeds, Schneider Cine-Xenon, and Lomos....

    This thread just reminds me how out of touch I am. To me, b speeds would be a dream. But I think I am part of the older generation.

    Thanks, yeah I've heard Pelicans are good but if the desiccant wears out it can be absolutely awful. I've heard shelves recommended. So the cases make sense. Do you not use lens caps?

    It looks good, I like the dreamy rendering more from the 85mm f1.2, though. Is that wide open? The resolution is strong without such harsh contrast, as usual I prefer it to newer options. Is that the...
