  1. Can anyone think of an ingenuous way to get a 2.35 frame into a Filmo viewfinder?
  2. Thank you, Tyler. I'm wondering if lossless color grading is overkill for a music video instead of color grading with Prores 422 or 4444.
  3. Would a music video look better if it was color graded with a lossless file rather than a lossy file?
  4. Is it possible for a 17EP motor to not be crystal sync? I shot footage for a music video and the sync is way off. The video is faster than the audio. The song is at 91 beats per minute while the video seems to be at about 96 beats per minute.
  5. Would 2k compressed to H.264 produce a better picture than 1080p compressed to H.264? Is 2K telecine only used for film prints and digital projectors?
  6. Also, how about the new Cooke Panchros compared to Zeiss Super Speeds?
  7. I have a Super Baltar, but I'm wondering if a Zeiss Super Speed would be higher quality.
  8. What is the highest quality cine lens for around $3,000?
  9. If I shot a sunlit background with daylight film and combined it with a person in front of a green screen using tungsten lights and tungsten film, would the combined pictures look funky compared to shooting the person with daylight film and HMI lights, or how about using tungsten lights and daylight film with a filter? I don't have HMI lights and would like to avoid buying them if there is not much difference.
  10. Would something like this make as good of picture as an HMI light?
  11. Why is there a huge price difference between HMI lights and bulbs that burn at 5200 Kelvin?
  12. I have a 20mm Super Baltar lens and would like to get all the elements cleaned. Does anyone know of someone that can do this?
  13. I've gotten it to stop jamming in the camera, but now it's jamming in the magazine. I'm using a motor. I can't fathom how it could work if the take-up pulley spins four times slower than the take-up spindle does. It just doesn't spin fast enough to take up the film.
  14. Wow! This was very helpful. Thank you so much Charlie. I was actually running it without the camera cover with exposed film to see how it worked. I didn't realize that the magazine had valves, so obviously the valves were shut. Do you have a "shepherd's hook" to open the light-tight valves on the mag when you load? I don't have a shepherd's hook, but thank you for the suggestion.
