    I think the only real argument by cinematographers has been that the lenses are not designed to have speedboosters put on them and by showing too much of the image circle you see the softness of the edges and add CA... etc

    it's just a cheat... like lots of stuff you do in film... sometimes you can get away with cheating, sometimes you can't

    anamorphic is basically a cheat, you have 4-perf film and you wanted widescreen, you could just crop the film, or use optics to squeeze the image onto a 4/3 film plane

    Hi David Happy New Year. Thanks for this awesome product offering. now what is the deal with OPLF? are you rehousing original filters that buyer provide or we have to buy OPLF with the mount?

    I thought the same thing when I first saw the video too. Good entertaining and informative work.

    Hi Luka, thank you, and I also wish you a Happy New Year :) We are rehousing the original RED VV OLPFs. When you order a SpeedMount, you can choose which OLPF you want (one OLPF is included, only the H2O costs a little more). We could of course also provide you with an empty holder if you already have RED VV OLPFs.

    We just went online with our new store, which hope fully explains slightly better how the SpeedMount works and what's included in the package.

    We couldn't be happier with the review video. @Gabriel: thank you again!
