    Actually Adobe is about to do an event on Terminator: Dark Fate and the post workflow and yes it's still the most used NLE in the industry percentage-wise.

    Heh. The 100mm f/1.4 was indeed this year.

    Even more complicated. Depending on the electronic mechanism "some" Canon EF lenses can have "smooth iris" control, actually from what I recall very few. Most have a stepped mechanism however.

    Depends on the Iris Design. Part of the Duclos Cine-Mod for instance on physically adjustable lenses is to remove the stepped aperture adjustments so you can indeed have a smooth iris functionality....

    We talk a lot about oversampling and it's benefit to general image detail, but equally useful is the lessening of image noise on a perceptual and measurable basis.

    More or less that's correct. The electronic iris doesn't have any sort of physical mechanism or exterior interface. So for a rehouse or mod job to do it you'd need to create one, which actually has...

    W/ an RT Motion kit as Tim mentioned they map well and work great. They are mechanical focus lenses internally via helicoid and a decent one at that. On a regular follow focus they also pull well,...

    This is 100% incorrect FYI. And it's clearer when you see the lenses cracked open. The actually information is the Milvus line and CP.3 line very much are "the same", that is where that lineup...

    Long ago when DSMC2 was launched RED stated they would be committed to the DSMC2 form factor until at least 2020. So from that perspective 2020 is the earliest we'd see DSMC3. If true to form and...

    Spicy and useful for gimbal peeps in a big way + Canon's new focusing mechanism in RF lenses is pretty interesting compared to the older EF stuff.

    Easiest way to check this is within REDCINE-X PRO, right click a clip to view metadata and look for "ISO Cal". ISO Cal 2 is the 1 stop under the hood improvement which better matches light meters.

    It's been a few years since I've seen one, but whatever the diameter of the main ring is, I can't recall if it was 150mm or like 138mm, you would ideally want that ring to a 80mm step down ring.
