    I've bought and sold everything from cars to cameras on ebay. In many many years, I have only had one issue. If you are selling, make it clear that there are absolutely no returns, and stay away from...

    Scarlets were grey right? I am pretty sure they are powder coated.

    Soooooo... if we drop filters in behind a lens don't we have to adjust the FFD by 1/3 the thickness of the filters? So aren't these apples and oranges? And wouldn't you need a clear filter if no...

    Perhaps I should amend that. If I am shooting exteriors, I automatically call for a pola and an n1.2. Then it's in until there is a reason for it not to be, then it's back in again ;-)

    As far as I know you could never upgrade an epic with a gemini chip. Gemini only came in a DSMC2, or a ranger body.

    I shoot with a Pola on exteriors 99.9% of the time. As does almost everyone I've ever worked with.

    Just my personal experience, Yeah, I'd just get the daylight versions (if they still make them, may have to get bi-color). I also have six apature MCs and they fill my RGB needs. BI don't have any...

    I have six of the 18x24 daylight rx whatever they are. No bicolor, no RGB. I haven't had any tint shift that is noticeable in several years of using them heavily. I use them for what they are good...

    The longer the focal lenght the deeper the depth of focus, so the farther they have to move to achieve focus. That's why say on a tair 135 mm, the front moves way out when focusing. Compared to an...

    While on the subject,

    Since most simple cine lenses focus by moving the lens cell closer or farther away from the film plane, wouldn't it make sense that any 50mm lens with a 52mm FFD would...

    Shims aren't changing the parfocalness of the lens, just adjusting back focus. One would hope they come correctly calibrated from the factory. Make sure your camera has it's FFD set correctly or you...

    I would think the MX would be noisy as hell at 3200 iso. Is that the look you are going for?

    Was it your camera? My point is if it's not yours, you have no idea how it's been treated.

    It's mainly a matter of taste, but I like the color out of the box better on Gemini, just feels more natural. To quote a DIT nerd friend "The pixels are more gooder on Gemini". It certainly is nice...

    I tend to use a 135mm and extension bellows when I need to get extremely close. The challenge is in finding the sweet spot in iris where you have useable DOF, but aren't killing your image with...
