  1. I just received it, thanks, works great! Thanks!
  2. Hi I have a Konvas 2M, I would like to buy and install a video tap device, Rafael over at rafcamera.com let me know that he is sold out and his tech won't be making any more soon, so now I am looking around for one of those so I can complete my camera kit and start shooting. Anyone have one of his? Or another device? Or recommendations to make my own? Or if you have another proven device, or know of a way I can make one myself please let me know! Though I would prefer the raf version since it's proven, but I'm willing to try anything since I need to get to filming soon. Thanks!
  3. Hey James are you here in LA? I'm interested in this magazine, can I buy next week? Remember we spoke a while ago about the anamorphic desqueezer? I got one already. But now I need this magazine, and a video tap, of some sort, can you recommend a video tap/ assist solution? Do you have one? Raf Camera's version is sold out and he said is not expecting to make any more soon. Thanks!

  5. Thanks everyone for your great advice and info. So I have purchased a Konvas 2M camera with the crystal synch motor for only $550 from ebay. It was a great deal! And I picked it up locally here in LA. Later I will be upgrading to the modern digital motor from Olex in Ukraine. So I want to shoot anamorphic as you know, so I upgraded and purchased a anamorphic desqueezer and anamorphic gate from ebay as well, they shipped from Ukraine and Russia. I'm going to be renting some lomo roundfront anamorphic lenses for the shoots. The next thing I need now is a video tap device, Rafael over at rafcamera.com let me know that he is sold out and his tech won't be making any more soon, so now I am looking around for one of those so I can complete my camera kit and start shooting.

  6. Hi actually I'm looking for any pl mount anamorphic lens, I will install a pl mount on my konvas camera that's why. Let me know what you have and the asking price. Thanks.
  7. Hi, I am looking to purchase anamorphic lenses for a Konvas 1M or 2M. Please let me know what anamorphic lenses you have, that will fit this camera, and if I need a special mount installed or if it's ready to go. An anamorphic zoom would be great if you have that too. Thanks.
  8. Thanks for that tip also James, I will certainly test that method. Sorry, what do you mean by underexposing by 1/3 of a stop? If my light meter tells me to light at f11 for example, and the nearest f stops are f8 and f16 on the lens, what do you mean by 1/3 of a stop? Thanks. Steve where can I buy these same exact lenses that you used? I just got an email back from rafcamera and they don't have any anamorphics. Hawks are definitely out of the price range, I would be happy to use the same lenses you did, to me your footage looks great, plus maybe just sharpening the image in post might help if I think it's still too hazy. Thanks.

Steve where can I buy these oct 19's, oct 18's and Ana lenses? I can't find any anamorphic lenses anywhere, any tips? Where did you buy your anamorphic set? Thanks.
  10. Hi Steve, thanks so much for responding. You're footage looked great to me. Are you able to upload a few still images from the 2K scan? I would love to see what it really looks like. I definitely want to go anamorphic for the story I am telling with this film project. I don't have tons to spend, but anamorphic is a must. So you recommend the Hawk anamorphic lens? Is that a projector lens? I am still a little confused about anamorphic lenses, because now people are using anamorphic projector lenses on top of DSLRs, as a cheap alternative? Do you recommend this? Or to get a real anamorphic lens? This guy selling a Hawk on ebay, appears to be a projector lens. So I assume this is not the one you're talking about? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Panavision-Panatar-35mm-Anamorphic-Lens-RED-Isco-Iscorama-Hawk-Runco-Cinemascope-/280802571268?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4161233404#ht_3548wt_1141 If I wanted to go for a Gladiator, or Braveheart look, what kind of film stock do you recommend? I will be shooting 90% outdoors forest scenes, and some interior temple scenes. I told a rep at Fuji film this, and he recommend this new film, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK1PvFdgM-g&feature=player_embedded But that film looks very crisp and sharp, which may or may not be a good thing. If I use the Konvas with that film, will it look like that Fuji film? If I use recanned short ends stock or older film will it look more like your film? Thanks for all your help!
  11. Hi, Can someone please let me know everything that's needed to get footage like this? I want to film 2:39 (2:35) aspect ratio. I will be doing a telecine to HD pro res video, will it be best to go to 1920x1080 with black bars at top and bottom? I can't contact the owner of the footage to ask him personally, so can we please break it down? What is needed if I buy a standard Konvas 1M or 2M? - Individual Anamorphic Prime's? Or an Anamorphic Zoom? What kind would fit this camera? - Buy and install an anamorphic gate? Take to a company in LA to do this? - Anything else needed? Special lenses or special telecine conversion? Also can you please let me know anything else about anamorphic? Anamorphic 101 in case I'm leaving anything out? - Should I convert the Konvas to 2 or 3 perf? Will this cost more or use more film or cost more at the processing or telecine stage? Any info would be appreciated, thank you! :)
  12. I want to shoot super8mm at 16x9, do some super8mm cameras shoot 16x9? Anyone care to start a list of super 8mm cameras that shoot 16x9? I am looking around on Ebay but the sellers usually dont know if they shoot 16x9 or 4x3, anywhere I can find specs on super 8mm cameras that say if they shoot 4x3 or 16x9? Thanks, I hope this list we compile is useful for those looking for the same setup!d
  13. This is all the info you need dude, check it out. http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=51526 Might as well say wow now.
  14. Hey Allyn, wow you shoud've asked me that question 3 months ago because there is a great film called "Sarah Langdon's Paranormal Hour" shot on the HVX-200, with the redrockm2 35mm lens adapter, nikkon lenses, and got theatrical distribution in over 2,000 theatres! It was a pre-teen Halloween type movie, not my cup of tea, but I saw it in the theatres for the cinematography and it looked great, blown up to 35mm print. The DP was around answering all types of questions at www.redrockmicro.com in the forum. Search for sarah langdon or something. Being said, I also am shooting my feature on this camera with the m2, and hope it goes theatrical. Hope that was a help. Ciaoo.
  15. Okay, so does a 28mm lens keep everything in focus always? If i want to shoot a landscape shot with someone walking in the foreground full frame from far away, would something be out of focus with the 28mm? I know a 35mm something has to be slightly out of focus, am I right?
