    Hi David,

    Where will you be selling them when ready? Would love one of these on my Helium with the STHL OLPF.

Another question, will there be any reduction for the launch of the IBC, or will the price be maintained?
    We haven't shot anything new, but here's a video that was shot on RED DSMC2 Helium, SpeedMount PL mk1, Tokina Vista Primes, NiSi Alure Black Mist filter:



    Also there will be quite a lot of footage next year on Netflix :-)

    The project has been a little bit of a mess (we did the mk1 version with a company that had some issues - you can read more about it somewhere back in this thread), so we currently can't give any discounts. But feel free to contact me by pm or email. We have a few test units that we could give you at a discounted rate if you're interested.

Hoping I'm doing my math correctly haha, and I'm even okay with some vignette since I think it adds a nice stylistic look to everything.
    Most anamorphic lenses protrude quite far into the camera, so there might be the issue that the rear of the lens hits the optical block. I'll try to test it soon.

    We're selling them directly from our store. We start shipping early next week.

    Now were only waiting on the black screws to finally finish the SpeedMount!

    We're at Camerimage if anyone wants to try out the SpeedMount EF mk2 or SpeedMount PL mk2. SpeedMount PL mk2 is in stock and SpeedMount EF mk2 will be in stock again in ~2 weeks when all mk1 upgrades are finished.

    I've had one for a few weeks now, and I've put together a fairly comprehensive test video where I compare it to a Gemini and a Sony FS5 with speedbooster to examine the difference in FOV, sharpness, exposure, etc.

    In summary, this thing is RAD. But check out the video here for a more comprehensive evaluation. FYI, I bought my speedmount with my own dirty money, and while David was very polite and helpful with my questions upon receiving the speedmount, I've had zero requests or favors from ABT's end. This is my objective evaluation of this thing because I wanted to see what difference it made. Really interesting to see what it does with DSLR zooms vs cine lenses...

    Hope this gives you some good perspective!

    Certainly one of the best videos I've seen in recent memory. Informative, hilarious, beautiful, just so well done. Thanks, Gabriel!

    Just saying a speedbooster does nothing but turning your lens into a wider faster lens with smaller image circle.

    So statments like ”now with the speedbooster helium is in monstro territory” Is a bit off I think.

    Its like saying now with this fast 16mm zoom my 16mm cam is in monstro teritory... Well its not its just a 16mm camera with a fast lens.

    We're comparing field of view and depth of field. All focal length fields of view are measured by using FF35mm as the baseline. The Speedmount, with cine lenses, provides a field of view and depth of field that's well beyond 35mm baseline, and near the equivalent of having around a 42mm sensor. The Monstro sensor is 41mm.
    I'm not a math doctor, but I'd say that 42mm is, in fact, in 41mm (Monstro) territory. Not sure what you're missing here.
