    Again, I agree. The Ultras, S4s, and Primos are the first ‘modern’ lens sets. I’m pretty happy with the footage I’ve shot on Ultras, but they do not have a distinct personality. I think they work...

    Honestly, this is a perfect use case for autofocus, as it exists on Canon C series cameras and the new Sony FX9.

    I think you’ll find that at T2 on a S35 sensor size and at normal Steadicam working...

    I agree with you, I think lenses with modern highly corrected designs don’t look right when you just change the coatings. You have two clashing looks that don’t mesh aesthetically. The older classic...

    It all comes down to personal taste. There is no objective right answer, only what looks good to you.

    That said, I think a lot of common tastes come from our shared enjoyment of what has come...

    For some, they may just be chasing the vintage trend. When the season turns, they may look elsewhere. But I think many people specifically don’t want sharpness and clarity. Instead they want...

    Ah, well thank you for the compliment, but I don’t deserve it. Just another journeyman DP like most here, expressing my opinion. I wouldn’t put any special stock in it!

    I have also often used autofocus EF zooms and primes when necessary for affordability, focal length reach, small size, and speed of use. Especially for solo operator documentary jobs. But it was...

    Yes, but the topic was about how good the camera sensor-level autofocus has become. Cinetape has a lot more limitations, being based on ultrasound. I stopped pulling focus before the Light Ranger 2...

    Alternately, you could go with the Gemini and keep using the C200 for the brutal run-and-gun doc work. Sometimes you might not want to put a $20K-ish camera into those situations.

    No, the only advantage of a Rota Pola is the ability to work with matte boxes which do not have a rotating filter stage, like the very popular ARRI LMB-5/15/25. If your matte box already has a...

    Unfortunately, no.
