    That does look great.

    I was inspired by some of the earlier (similar) photos you posted to shoot a bit of night for night with an S1H at 51,200 ISO on an f1.2 lens wide open. (Occasionally with a...

    Do you know if the story is true about the 28mm f2 Contax being the same as a standard speed? The front elements look similar in size. If so, I wonder if the 60mm f2.8 macro, 100m f2, and 135mm share...

    What about the 21mm f2.8 ZE? (Or ZF if you need the click stops, but not sure which direction that focuses in, others will know...)

    The 95mm push-on adapter is great so far. A little loose fitting on the Angenieux, but not bad at all. No vignetting from what I can see. Recommended.

    I have a 28mm f2 that has stiff focus. What do you recommend doing to service or improve it?

    Lee and the like use 2mm thick filters, whereas cine filters are 4mm. Tiffen (I think it's Tiffen) claims for this reason to have created the first cine version of such a clip on holder. As I recall,...

    Thanks, Karim. I suspect I did something wrong with transfer modes and lost some shadow detail. I'm not sure how much difference it makes, though. The underexposure I don't know how to fix regardless.

    Thanks, David. Cool rig, too! When I'm in the market for a new matte box I will look into that. For now I think maybe I just need some screw on filters after all... and a few basic 4x4 NDs for the...

    This was the best I could do, but I lost shadow detail. Feeling like an idiot for not being able to go farther, but others should be able to.

    Thanks again. That's a different approach to exposure than I'm used to with video and reversal. Will need to practice a bit to get a feel for it, but that already makes sense.

    Thanks, that's really helpful. In most of those cases were you adding fill to brighten up faces on the side not facing the sun or is it just typically around a three-stop difference? Of course I...

    Thanks, David. My indulgent DIY questions don't deserve your expertise. But I do appreciate it!

    Do you recommend rating film 1/3 stop hot? I just remember from my first production course it was...

    I own that lens and didn't even know that. Thanks!

    So then I was thinking of getting something more like this:

  14. 4x4 filter systems compatible with cinema filters?

    I'm already the worst for asking so many odd DIY questions like this, but I have a 4x4 filter system for my Canon 7-63mm t2.6 lens and I tried fitting its matte box on my 12-240mm Angenieux zoom...

    Leitax or Simmod?

    Are both shimmable? How does this work if I want infinity focus to be accurate?

    My lens has a stiff focus ring. Is there an easy way to deal with this? Thanks.

    Thanks, good idea. I might just look for better set screws for my RAF adapter and leave it on the camera at this rate, though. No one seems to do affordable EF conversions on those and it sounds like...

    I like the CGI in Spielberg films and credited it to him integrating vfx elements into the wide shot instead of getting too cutty (there's a lot of interaction)–and to him keeping the camera...

    That's the one! They are tiny, the 16mm is the biggest one by far, too. How'd you mod it to EF? I'm using a RAF adapter, but I can't get an EF lens cap to fit on it due to the recessed rear element...

    Thanks, that sounds perfect. Cheap, too. Apparently has tons of distortion but the good kind. (Barrel distortion, that is.) Oddly, the 70-210mm is pretty expensive. I'm hoping the added optical...

    Thanks. I wonder is it dust in the Canon? Almost all my FDs are dusty inside. I actually bought that zoom for $60 so I'm going to keep it anyway but might not use it much.

    "Dirt cheap" zooms.

    Those look like good rental options for me but outside my purchasing budget.
