  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

  16. Thanks a lot Chris and David for sharing your experience and knowlegde. Your infos are gold worth. 1000 thanks Alex from Berlin
  17. Hi there, I have some questions about the right postproduction workflow for an 16mm project. We shoot on 16mm and at the end we want a blow up to 35mm. First question is: What is the right telecine resolution for that? 2K or 4K? Am I right that 2K makes sense, because 16mm film has no higher resolution? Second question: The prefered postproduction workflow is to edit the whole movie digital, putting some digital effects on it, do the grading digital and then do a telecine back to film. What exactly is the digital intermediate process? Can I work with an offline quality, edit the movie and later replace it with the full telecine resolution? What is then with the timecodes, when I get the stuff digital? When it is possible I want to get the telecine files as digital files. Maybe somebody has some answers for me. 1000 thanks to you. Alex P.S.: Does somebody knows the data rate for an 2K vs. 4K telecine digital file? Can I handle a 2K telecine project on an ordinary final cut pro machine?
  18. Hi Ram, thanks for all the infos. You are damn right, this Zeiss lenses are f***ing great. Maybe when I win in the lottery... :-) In the meanwhile I have organized the same lenses as you use, because I think this is a good compromise in the moment. But I have already thought about the Canon FD L(uxury) Series. There is a 14mm Lens which isn't a fisheye. I can't really believe this, but it seems to be true. But this lenses are more expensive as the Zeiss ones. Cheers, Alex
  19. Hi Nadav, awsome job, very brutal, very intense. I'm impressed about your camera style. Very good work. Maybe you can post the cam, lenses you work with, budget etc.? This would be nice to know. Cheers, Alex
  20. Another question: Do you ever used the Canon FD L(uxury) Series Lenses on it? When yes, are they worth it? Thanks a lot, Alex
  21. Hi Bill, why this tons of compression? This makes no sense for me, but whatever. The frame seems to be a little bit squeezed to me or? I think framing and lightning is a matter of taste, so it looks ok. The reflection on the left side (background) isn't so sweet. I like the kicker from the right, but I prefer harsher contrasts so I may would put the key light down a little bit. Maybe I had dimmed the light on the door too, because so the view is focused on the door and the tags on the door first, then on the guy. But this is just my opinion. Go for it. Cheers, Alex
  22. Nice work again, Ram. the guy in the seat looks a little bit defocused. Do you use some kind of filtering to get this yellowish look or do you push it to yellow in post? Is this vignette from the lens or do you masked it in post? By the way, nice bikini girls, too. I'm going to get one of this letus35fe adapters. I want to use it with a sony z1. I will get the version you recommended already (Letus35FE, 72mm, swapable mount) I will use some Canon FD lenses on it. Do I need some stepup/stepdown ring then to fix the adapter to the cam? What kind of connection is this whole thing about, I can't find informations on that question in the web. Do I need a rod system and when yes, where do you get one? How fast are your lenses? Can I try to work with this system without any rodsystem? Thanks, Alex
  23. Hi Ram, can please you post with what cam you work? This Letus Website isn't very informative. Can I mount the Letus on every cam or only to specific ones? Is there a difference between versions from sd or hdv/hd? Do it works with the Sony Z1/V1 and the Panasonic HVX200? And with what follow focus do you work then? When you work with photographic lenses are there any problems to get the picture sharp. Do you work with an assistant or do you pull the focus for yourself? How far do you need to zoom in the picture on the ground glass? How does the prinicple of this adaptor? Is there a rotating ground glass? Thanks a lot Alex
  24. Ram, can you post in brief with wich lenses you are still working? Nikon or Canon mount? And what focal lenses you prefer? Are there any problems to get the Letus on your cam? Thanks a lot Alex
