  1. Hello. I've been mathematically constructing some dream lenses where internet DoF calculators aren't cutting it. I'm going two stops faster than F0.7 (F0.35) from a Super 8mm field of view. I want to know if these lenses could work mathematically. Does anyone per chance know the algorithm to calculate depth of field?
  2. So in the sense of lower end digital cameras with an 8 bit 4:2:0 signal (Say the a6000 for example) it's best to just have the color balance "on the money" as opposed to balancing it to capture the color of the location? Would it be a bad idea to shoot everything whilst maintaining a 5600k color balance?
  3. So in a nutshell, when shooting on film stock, if you get the color temp close enough it can easily be corrected in the DI process or through chemical means? And color temp is often correct through filters or a combination of lights and filter?
  4. Alright, if the goal is to match the color temp of the area, how do you find the exact color temperature so that you can use the correct filters to achieve the desired effect?
  5. I'm curious as to how DP's that work with film stock go about white balancing. Since the WB is fixed do they use gels on the lights set up? Or do they use filters in front of the lens to achieve the desired effect? If so, how incremental is the filtration?
  6. Noted. Thank you helping clear that up.
  7. Thanks for clearing that up. :D I have some adapter lenses that just might work once I figure out how to mount them. I looked into buying a Beaulieu, but it's out of my budget for the time being, hence the interest in the QUARZ. Also, do you have any recommendations as far as adapters go in terms of the anamorphic lenses and "normal" spherical lenses?
  8. Thanks for the info. :D So what your saying is that adapter lenses will work as opposed to normal c-mount lenses?
  9. I've adapting some Nikkor lenses to work for video/cinema. Is there a place where I can get them measured in T-stops so I can maintain consistant lighting easier?
  10. Hello, I've been enamoured by the organic qualities of Super 8 and 16mm film for some time now. One question I have though is if wind up cameras are worth the cheaper price. I know the Krasnogorsk k-3 is a good 16mm camera, but what about Russian Super 8 wind ups? I also recently read an article from 2007 about how you can adapt the camera to take other lenses, it just takes some fiddling. Anyone know how to do that process?

  11. Thanks. Everything seems to be working just fine.
  12. I recently updated my Sony a6000 to firmware 2.0, which includes the XAVC-S codec. When I import the footage into lightworks NLE or to cliptoolz convert it reads as AVCHD. Am I doing something wrong?
  13. Anyone had any experience shooting with the Sony a6000? I've had the camera for about six weeks and have been have issues with noise and sharpness in my footage, even after post-processing, Does anyone have any options as far as picture profile to use or properly exposing the image?
  14. I have a few questions regarding the 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern Raw. First, what kind of computer specs would be need to handle the 14-bit raw smoothly? Second, does the camera have the option to record in 10-bit or 12-bit? Third, what kind of challenges come from using the 5D Mark III and/or Magic Lantern?
  15. Hello, I've been color correcting/grading with cliptoolz color for awhile now, but I've run into a few issues: First off I don't fully understand waveforms, histograms and scopes in general. I know how to read them in a basic sense, but that's not really working in the results I'm trying to get. Second, I'm shooting an a Sony a6000 in AVCHD, and I don't know how to correct/grade with AVCHD without having digital artifacts after de-noising. Lastly, The computer I'm editing on is a dell laptop with Win 8 with a resolution of 1600 x 900 (not ideal I know, but it's the best I have to work with for the time being) so everything is SUPER de-saturated until I plug it in to a 1080p HD television which then the colors turn out alright. But it has me concerned that when I finally render it it will not look how I intended it to. No I cannot upgrade software, cash is tight. Any advice on the matter?
