    Hello.

    Thought I'd post a really quick film I did this afternoon.

    I just got the Dragon and couldn't wait to test the FD mount (eBay) together with some old vintage Canon lenses (20mm, 35mm, 85mm and 200mm)

    The 200 isn't super sharp but I didn't really had the time to find the best place by the lake for it as I only brought 2 Red Volts :(

    I didn't do any proper grading, just a bit of contrast and color. Also Red Gamma 4 and DragonColor.

    * Did a color fix and replaced the video with a one that is not so purple tinted :)

    I'd say the lenses look good. Beautiful family you have there and nice selections shooting/editing.

    What did you use to stabilize your rig? Should mount? Did you shoot high FPS or just slow down in post?

    Thank you Will.

    Which did you like more having both worked in camera shooting and editing in post?

    Just been playing with my FD lenses this week too. What mount did you use? Did you use an FD -> EOS mount? Did it really kill sharpness? I've been playing with the half-off BMPCC and the FD adapter doesn't require any optics to soften the image.
