Original owner. Controller is in excellent condition. $400 + S&H For Sale: Century Precision Optics Optical Transformer. Lets you mount 2/3” broadcast lenses on a Super 16mm camera with an Arri B mount. Century Precision Optics (now Schneider) 2/3” Super 16 Arri B Transformer S/N C53683 I used to put my Fuji 2/3” broadcast lens with servo zoom on my Super 16mm film camera so I could have power zoom control on my Super 16mm camera.The lens worked perfectly on my Super 16mm camera with no vignetting even at 7.8mm. The picture was very sharp and I could not tell the difference between this lens and my rebuilt Zeiss 12-120mm lens with the Optex conversion when viewing the transfers in HD. The glass on the lens and transformer is perfect – no scratches, mold, etc. The transformer sold new for $2,500. I am the original owner of the transformer. Items were never rented. The transformer can have the mount changed from Arri B to PL although I don't know what the cost would be. $400 + S&H

  4. Make your life easy and use Premiere Pro CS5.5.2 Just drop the .R3D files on the timeline. It doesn't get any easier.
  5. Have you tried playing the clips in your camera? I always copy my 550D clips right from the camera with a USB cable. I haven't lost a clip yet (over a year). I use Sandisk Extreme and Transcend class 10 SD cards. You should always checks clips after your shot whenever you have time.
  6. You need to take the key from your change to color tool and use that to drive another tool to change the color. I used Fusion to test it and it's extremely easy to do. 1. Pull the key 2. Use two inputs to the color corrector. Input is the original footage, key is from the keyer. 3. You're done.
  7. What you have to do is isolate the yellow grass and then adjust the hue, saturation, etc. to match the green grass. This way you will get the variations in color so it will look natural. You can't just change all the yellow grass to one color with "change to color". Grass has many different shades and textures.
  8. I would really like to get my files with ProRes 4444 (LOG) encoding, but I can not be sure how does Premiere handle it. Why not transfer to DPX files. CS5.5 handles those just fine, plus it's uncompressed.

  10. The Scarlet, if it comes come out, will have Red raw files which will enable you to do better color correcting and chroma keying and also have better slow motion. At this point no one has any idea when the Scarlet will be out, if ever. I've been in this business way too long and I wouldn't make any plans in the near future on getting a Scarlet. The EX3 is a fine camera and you can make money with it. I shot a low budget movie with the EX3 a couple of years ago and my director told me it looked "awesome" on a 25 foot screen when it was screened in LA a couple of months ago. The ergonomics of the EX3 aren't great, but the picture is fine for a lot of applications. Get an EX3 or similar camera and if the Scarlet ever comes out you can always sell the EX3.
  11. The AF100 has an uncompressed 8-bit SDI output. Currently, there is no way to get full 10-bit output from the camera. http://blog.abelcine.com/2011/01/14/your-af100-questions-answered/
  12. The video quality of the lens is quite good. I have the lens. The build quality might not be the best but it will put out a good video image. Manual focus with the lens is a nightmare. Where did you hear it is a bad quality lens? 50mm is a bit long for the t2i. A much better "walk around lens" is the Sigma 30mm f1.4 prime.
  13. I agree with Frank completely. I have the new Red plugin for CS5 and it works as advertised. The whole workflow is so much easier than FCP. Start thinking outside the Apple :)
  14. The wireless remote also works: http://www.cinema5d.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=11091 :)
