    Update! I figured out how to get the front element off! Now, I don't know if it was just this particular lens, as it is dirty, but there is a thread ring on the front with spots for a lens spanner,...

    Yeah, unless the elements are large, like the rear of an F1.4 lens, I don’t use lens caps in the clear cases when I’m simply storing them and if it is a fast lens, I use a rear cap but no front cap...

    This sounds cool but the one thing that makes me mad about RED cameras is that Kinefinity offers media enclosures so that users can use third party media if they want rather than stick with the...

    I commented in the video that someone could surely come up with a helicoid system or adapter to make this work but he mentioned that the sensor had to be extremely close to the lens to get an image....

    I wondered why companies don't recycle their batteries or have trade-in options when they go out. If it's just the cells getting worn out and the hardware is fine then why make extra waste? I don't...
