  1. Hi Phil, there are some brands which produce adapter rings, but there are very different in quality. I think I take a Novoflex EOS/NIK-NT Adapter, but maybe somebody here has a better suggestion/experience. Cheers & Thanks, Alex
  2. Hi there, I'm looking for a good Nikon to Canon EF mount adaptor to operate on a 5D. Any suggestions which is the best? Thanks! Cheers, Alex
  3. Hey Ryan, thanks for your suggestions. Cheers to California from Berlin Alex
  4. Hi out there, does anybody know what kind of chroma subsampling the new Panasonic AG-AF100 has? Found nothing about that at the Panasonic site Data Sheet. Anybody an answer? Thanks a lot Alex
  5. Sorry, posted it in the wrong forum. Cheers, Alex

  7. Hi Guys, feel free to judge me: http://vimeo.com/16024218 Thanks for your feedback. Alex
  8. Thanks Will & Phil, I think I got the point. Merci. Cheers, Alex
  9. Hi Will, thanks for your reply, but that wasn't my point. Of course, the ProRes codec group are good codecs and I think they want the new ProRes 4444. As I mentioned before we edited with a XDCam Ex 1080/50i compressor. And my point is, that I don't understand why they want to convert the stuff, because I have learned that with every compression you have a data loss. And yes, I knew that Apple told us, there is no data loss with there codecs, but it is physically impossible to compress a file without a data loss. I only wondered why they want to compress the film in there workflow, because it is possible to work with the XDCam Ex compressor during the color grading process and to print it to film from that codec. Thanks, Alex
  10. Hi, we have shot a feature length documentary with the sony xdcam ex1 and now we have to prepare the final cut for the digital print. The postproduction facility asked us to convert the stuff to apples pro res codec. We've edited the film with final cut pro and the film will be graded before print out. Has anyone experience with that workfolw? For me as an editor it seems that there is no need for the convertion to apples pro res... thanks a lot. cheers from Berlin, Alex P.S.: Sorry, I posted that thread in "Film Stocks and Processing" before. Sorry for that, I wasn't here for a long time...

  12. Hi Phil, you are absolutly right: The asteriks is shown on the LCD while filming when you push the info button, too. I'm shooting always in M(anual) mode. I have disabled all shutter, aperture functions. I'm going to test this technical beauty next week, because I'm going to shoot some music videos with the cam. As I already wrote I own the camera now for at least three days. Maybe I should read the user manual a second time. :-) If you are interested in the latest firmware update (1.1.0) and the new functions have a look here: http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eo...2/firmware.html Cheers, Alex
  13. Hi Phil, that's the solution for my problem. The asteriks don't appear on the LCD, but it works fine. Many thanks for sharing this information. I've the latest firmware installed, but I'm using FD lenses (no auto focus and f-stop control) with the Kipon adapter, so I can't really say, if this options work with EF lenses, but it seems so, there are some menu options for that. Cheers, Alex
  14. Hi, I have a problem with the 5D (Firmware 1.1.0). I mounted a Kipon-adaptor for FD Lenses (no AF and no f-stop-control) on the cam (it works fine) and it seems, that the cam push the f-stop automatically when I film against lights etc. Anybody an idea how this can be? Does the chip automatically blend up and down? I have no idea, but it sucks... Thanks Alex
