    Sticky: I’ve been going back and forth about starting a...

    I’ve been going back and forth about starting a Contax Zeiss set this year, I tried the 50mm 1.4 MMJ and tested a 2x teleconverter for a 100mm out of it which works great but I just keep wondering...

    Okay, I tested the adapter out and it turns out to be a dud!

    To start, the lens had dust inside it from the factory which was a shocking quality control issue and I would have to send it back...
  3. I have the 2X adapter, not one of their...

    I have the 2X adapter, not one of their anamorphic lenses. From what I understand, the lenses are just precisely mated lenses with the 2X adapter incorporated in the design as a single focus unit....

    I just donít want to see Apple pull an Intel and eek out performance of their silicon little by little. If theyíve got the goods to deliver their own CPU and GPU performance over Intel or AMD then...

    Sorry to bring this thread back up but I always thought RED was going to expand upon HDRx until it was the mainstream way to shoot. It's basically the beginnings of an HDR camera which I have seen in...
  7. SLR Magic 65 1.33x Anamorphic - Anybody try one?

    Hey, everybody, just looking at anamorphics again and saw the price on the SLR Magic 65 1.33x at $900 and wondered if it might be an interesting option for some of my larger lenses. I already have...

    Hi, yes I did get it working! I havenít played with it too much but I did eventually find a large clamp that allows for 95mm filter threads and a clamp on the back helps for easy mounting, this also...

    I think Komodo will have a big impact on the used market! The thing with RED now is the support for the cameras. Yes, I purchased a used RED One MX to film my first feature (still in VFX post!) and...

    Nikon Z Mount option?

    Hi, sorry if this has been asked before in the big Komodo thread, but I've been debating getting a Nikon Z6 as an all around camera upgrade from my old Canon 5D Mark II and I've been thinking about...

    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...

    Hi, everybody, does anybody happen to know where to look for a guide or knows how to take apart and clean a Canon FD 35-105mm 3.5 parfocal zoom? I've recently gotten a couple of them, the first...

    I use flip top food storage cases sold under Better Homes and Gardens or Felli Flip Tite with a desiccant packet or two thrown in. They have various sizes, the biggest lens I've stored being a Canon...

    Yeah, those first two are the ones I saw. Heck, if itís any good then itís one compelling option for sure! I would wonder if Blackmagic might use the same sensors in a refresh of the Pocket series...
  16. ZCam E2-F8 - 8K for $6K, any user reports?

    Hey, everybody, I was looking up 8K camera options and happened to notice that the ZCam E2-F8 was in stock at B&H! I didn't know those were available yet, I thought they were still on pre-order, so I...

    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...

    I've only fiddled with the Letus on the NAB show floor but it seemed like a good solution, nice and sharp with good flares. The squeeze ratio of 1.8x was odd though, why not push it for 2x? But if...
