  1. I'm looking for a way to shoot with a 4 or 5mm focal length on my bolex. A proper c-mount switar would be ideal but it appears 10mm is as wide as those go. A lens with an adapter would be an option, one of those filter-adapter-attachment thingies would be a worst-scase scenario but I'm open to anything.
  2. well I already bought the cinestill since it was touted as being the same film just reappropriated for stills, at this point I'm just confused as to why it's rated at 800 if it's supposedly a 500 speed film and how should I expose it? Should I just assume it's virtually identical to 7219 and rate it at 500? If I do that, should I tell the lab to process it as 500?
  3. i'm shooting a short and I want to cheaply do a test and take my slr to test certain lighting conditions. Does anybody know which still film that's available that has the most similar color palette to kodak's 16mm color negative? There might be no perfect substitute, but I really can't afford to shoot a test roll. Thanks in advance
  4. Thanks for the input. Yeah, the imdb says 1.85, but it also listed elswit as dp for The Master until that was cleared up. Kinda a pity, I've always been a fan of P.T.A.'s ongoing 'collaboration' with the anamorphic format. Wonder if he's framing for 1.85 for good.
  5. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BRLG2ASCEAE05-I.png:large The above picture just surfaced from the set of PTA's Inherent Vice. Any eagle-eyed panavision experts can tell us a little about what they're shooting with? Are they shooting with anamorphic lenses, and if so, are they preserving the 2.35 aspect ratio or matting down to 1.85? (due to the angle, I can't quite tell the aspect ratio of the image on that tiny monitor)
  6. Tarantino shot Death Proof, who knows, maybe that's why it was so much weaker than anything else he's done.
  7. Yeah, I posted this elsewhere, and they said it was a long lens in the field of view. Turns out, I purchased my 100mm lens after marking the groundglass, so I never noticed that it was in the frame. Pretty embarrassing, but I'm glad I figured that out. Thanks for the replies.
  8. Wow, that's embarrassing. The ground glass was marked before i bought my 100mm lens, didn't even think about it. Thanks a lot.
  9. Be a light leak nazi. Make sure the filter holder is always in place, tape up the door, make sure that you're covering up the viewfinder completely with your eye and if you can't, switch the viewfinder shut (not sure if all bolexes have that option). Light leaks are awesome the first couple of rolls, then you realize it's incredibly distracting. Also, this applies for any film camera, always reshoot the last shot you did before the roll ran out. One last thing, always remember to plan around the 30 second time limit. You're not shooting the next russian ark on your bolex.
  10. Hi, i already posted this in the lens forum, but it might apply here too. I shot a short on my bolex this past summer. Shots using my 10mm kern palliard lens had something in the bottom right corner. It's dark, but reflects light when hit directly. Not sure what it is. Luckily, i composed for 2.35:1, so it doesn't show in the short, but i really hope there's not something wrong with my lens. Anybody have any ideas what it is, i'd really appreciate it. here are a few shots where you can see it best. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGo_cE8YPcc

  12. I just didn't understand post #2, but I get it now, thanks.
  13. I see, I just assumed the adjustments you made to the groundglass would be equal top and bottom, thanks for the explanation
