    Good companies with quality follow focus units usually provide their standard 0.8 mod gears and both larger and smaller gears with more/less teeth to adjust speed transmission ratio. OR they provide...

    To be rather frank, I've done the best I can in terms of "asking" and "imploring". Now mostly interested in what it takes to get it done. Both companies are very aware of interest and demand. The...

    Outside of ProRes RAW, I would be curious what the licensing fee would net users to get ProRes support (full export) on Windows done. I could see some sort of online "key" needing to be purchased or...

    Hello Ayman,

    If you don't have a lens mount adapter with electronic connection on most Canon EF lenses you will not be able to control the iris, which means it will usually be set to wide open. ...

    Looks like I need to post some examples. "as far as film makers are concerned", most interesting statement that made me actually angry today.

    Be back in a few days when I'm done shooting I guess.
  6. Exactly what I'm saying.

    Exactly what I'm saying.

    This is a fascinating statement that I don't think many optical engineers would agree with, PHD or not.

    Longer lenses typically would observe less of the behavior due to typical designs. But I'd...

    I'd take a close look at all of their rehousing efforts. TLS has been rehousing for a very long time. GL Optics has improved greatly over the years. Zero Optik is the newest company, but in many...

    Same Tom, same.

    Locally and somewhat publicly I'd say I've been one of the larger advocates against using VNDs on any shoot. Like literally the last resort solution. So many issues. ...

    Mark finally got a chance to test the VND too.

    Note the lack of polarization issues on the phone!

    Grab somebody with a new iPhone or top of the line Samsung. You'll notice the more powerful phones have better performance. Hydrogen works fine, but it's a few generations back and H2 never was a...

    Arri is changing what transpired as far as I know, but this isn't just an Arri thing at all. Best I can say about this for now. But I'll be pretty clear in saying that the different cameras in the...

    Unknown to what that exactly equates to, but I have tested 3 mounting solutions that "do this" just fine. When I first picked up my Komodo I had a close look at it like everybody, I strongly think...

    It does, 4X on the front sides, which is why there are some adapters that use this.

    And if I was a guessing man, also more useful to have those in that orientation on a smaller camera, but who...
  16. I'm not taking any stance that any adapters are...

    I'm not taking any stance that any adapters are rubbish really. What's merely being discussed is being a bit more ideal out of the box, which is a tit for tat between two manufacturers. That's...

    :) I wish it was that easy. Test a couple thousand cameras. Fun discoveries. FUN with a capital F.

    But yes, ideally back focus to set the correct sensor/image plane for your given mount or...

    The printed spec is certainly exactly that, but every camera represents different variables. You have a filter or filter stack of some sort, sensor coverglass, and the odd shocker of the sensor...

    They are the same glass, no optical difference, between the Bokkehlux, Mavo Primes, and Nitecore Primes. It's another "good for the price" set. A bit more flare than the Vespids, but I would need...

    I did indeed, I actually had the prototypes for most of 2020 during the height of the pandemic. They are pretty remarkable for the price. But you'll want to consider a few things.

    If you need...

    Just landed back in LA.

    And agree. I think something that will be a moderate discovery for some reading this, but there is a large, very large portion of people now using PL glass never shim...

    Fascinating discussion, yet somewhat how I thought things would unfold. I just wrapped filming in the UK and am on a 3 day journey back to the states and will dig through all this.

    I don't want to dirty the waters of the "competition" here by contributing too much. But this is not a if it has shims or not sort of thing being discussed.

    I'm in a good position to be a somewhat adult referee as whatever this bout leads to, specifically supporting a good cause and I know both individuals.

    Lots to consider here even down to where you are travelling.

    Whenever possible I carry-on cameras, lenses, and power.

    If needing to check things, interestingly it's cameras first.
